  1. Wonder WHAT insurance coverage THOSE companies have. If they can not cover the cost of a disaster similar to Bayou Corne’s sinkhole via insurance and funds.they should NOT operate. Bet they are all Limited Liabilty Companies..LLCs, State of LA should not allow LLCs to operate drilling or activities which can cause significant financial hardship for the public affected by their errors, problems with engineering..or such. Forget allowing any LLC to perform activities which can have adverse impacts unless they have coverage with insurance! Let the insurance company figure out who is safe to insure. If too expensive for insurance coverage..why may the local property owners and the public PAY for this damage. OR make homeowners insurance cover the cost of the LLC damages–that would stop everything…!!

    • the big eye-opener on that was the West, Texas blow up. Louisiana and Texas have rotten liability laws.
      But homeowners in Louisiana should already be aware of these rotten laws and the vice-grip oil and chem industries have there on law makers.

      Anyone buying a home or retirement home near a cavern of any kind should be sure it is a MOBILE home or a house boat that can be MOVED!
      Rotten to the core place for hapless home owners who have the LEAST rights under state laws.

  2. This area remains the path of least resistance. Do not forget the Aug. 2010 oil blowout – Assumption Parish. The incredible energy from the Macondo Well disaster had to go…well, somewhere.

  3. Amazing, I will reblog this. My first thought is shifting land due to the amount of sinkhole activity we are finding in southern Missouri. I have been blogging about this myself. There are many gas lines that cross the New Madrid fault in this area and other areas.

  5. Just sent an email to Nanometrics asking why the different microvolt settings on the helicorders they maintain for the U of M. I hope there is an engineering reason. for the 20,000 mv, 666.xx mv, 10,000 mv, and 500 mv settings. They vary so very much, with the 20K mv graph almost being flat!

      They have contempt for the public.
