Fluid Movement Thursday + Friday Legislation Round-Up

Lots of movement at 6 a.m.

fluid

Some big quakes today making all sorts of dings on the helicordersUSGS quake  list. Live list is on the LEFT sidebar. See also comments for more on quakes today.

After 3 p.m. (CST) there was more fluid movement at LA17-02. It may be an active day at other locations too.

Something fell in or fell over in Lake FUBAR near the collapsed cavern at LA21 at 4 a.m.. And the parish blog says they went back to CODE 1.

Crosstex “update” from June 17th

FRIDAY

SB209 signed‏.  It adds penalties to oil drillers who have accidents. The bill.

SB 585 / signed into law

SB 585 Solution-Mined Cavern Permits – Public Notice (State Sen.)  Mills, Fred
Signed by the Governor – Act: 766 About Lake Peigneur
Effective – 8/ 1/14


" salt water content for the duration of the activity for the creation of cavern storage should a permit be granted; a geologic analysis by a qualified third party geologist that examines the integrity of the salt dome; and the results of an analysis of testing that attempts to determine the source and composition of intermittent foaming or bubbling appearing in Lake Peigneur. (3) No permit to expand or convert an existing solution-mined cavern or to drill and operate a new solution-mined cavern in Iberia Parish shall be issued prior to January 31, 2016."

  1. TO: Flyingcuttlefish
    You say something fell in at Lake Fubar at 4 am.

    I pointed this out in Wed. News June 18, 2014 in comments
    I said it look like something went deep six at the sinkhole.

    All the recorder show it at CDT time at 04:07 am at the sinkhole.
    The LA10 surface recorder show it very well.

    And LA12 show it very well.

  2. [Friday a.m.] – Even though they redid all the helicorders to microscopic setting you can see ding-dang-dong at LA12. Lake FUBAR is making popcorn!

  3. Why did they turn all the Helicorder Images for Mid-America to microscopic setting in US ?
    What is our Government up to ?
    You would think you would see this one recorded at the sinkhole this earthquake happen at CDT time 07:16 or UTC time at 12:46 ?

    • I got that Alaska earthquake wrong I got it happening at CDT time at 07:16 or UTC time at 12:46.
      It should read it happen at CDT time at 07:16 or UTC time at 12:16.

  4. Just started reading “Chemtrails, HAARP, and the Full Spectrum Dominance of Plant Earth,” by Elena Freeland and was surprised to see a discussion on the LA Sinkhole!

  5. They got those Helicorder recorder reading in the Minus Scale at the sinkhole.

  6. Oklahoma quakes this year top tremors in California

    http://edition.cnn.com/2014/06/19/us/oklahoma-earthquakes-wastewater-wells/

    (CNN) — California may be known for its earthquakes, but so far this year it has been surpassed by an unlikely state: Oklahoma.

    Experts say wastewater wells are likely linked to the big increase in the number of quakes recorded in Oklahoma.

    Between 1978 and 2008, Oklahoma experienced an average of just two quakes of 3.0 magnitude of greater. In 2014, as of Thursday, there have been about 207 such quakes recorded in the state, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

    The upward trend started in 2009, with 20 quakes of 3.0 magnitude or greater, then 43 the following year, and jumping every year with the exception of 2012.

    Oklahoma has now surpassed California in quakes, and seismologists see no end in sight, CNN meteorologist Chad Myers said.

    California has recorded about 140 3.0-magnitude quakes or greater, compared to 207 in Oklahoma.

    The oil and gas industry’s injection of wastewater deep into the Earth apparently is linked to the shift in seismic activity in Oklahoma, Myers said.

    The fracturing fluid seems to be lubricating existing faults that have not moved in recent years, he said. The fracturing process is not creating new faults, but are exposing faults that already exist, he said.

    On Wednesday, at least seven earthquakes were recorded in Oklahoma, according to the USGS.

    There were no reports of significant damage, but that doesn’t mean that these quakes are not of concern to scientists.

    “The fact that the number of earthquakes in Oklahoma is even comparable to California is unusual,” USGS geophysicist Rob Williams said.

    “We’ve seen swarms of earthquakes over the interior of the U.S., but this is on a completely different scale, for the area where all the earthquakes are occurring is bigger than any previous swarm,” he added. “It’s not really a swarm, it’s really a collection of swarms.”

    It cannot be ruled out that the spike in earthquakes is a once-every-10,000-years thing, but scientists don’t know and a surprised by the numbers.

    “Given the rate of earthquakes over the last six months, it’s concerning enough to be worried about a larger, damaging earthquake happening, let alone what might happen in the future,” Williams said.

    Many of these quakes are being linked to wastewater injection, he said.

    Some earthquakes have been linked to hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, but for the most part, the Oklahoma earthquakes are linked to wastewater wells, Williams said.

    Geophysicists have not been able to gather data to pin down the certain set of wastewater wells that are causing the earthquake problem, but they’re hopeful to learn more about the problematic wells in the future.

    Research into the links between the wastewater wells and quakes started about four years ago, Williams said.

    To better gauge the increased quakes, USGS and Oklahoma officials have added monitoring stations, which now stand at 15 permanent facilities and 17 temporary stations.

    The Oklahoma Independent Petroleum Association last month urged a wait-and-see approach in judging the USGS’s assertions on links between wastewater disposal and earthquakes.

    “Because crude oil and natural gas is produced in 70 of Oklahoma’s 77 counties, any seismic activity within the state is likely to occur near oil and natural gas activity. The OIPA and the oil and gas industry as a whole support the continued study of Oklahoma’s increased seismic activity, but a rush to judgment provides no clear understanding of the causes,” the industry group said.

  7. FCF, I’ve posted an article from CNN about Oklahoma and it’s vanished. It didn’t come up as Spam, When I try to post it again I am told I’ve already posted it, so where’s it gone?!

    • It is the first item on “WED. News”.
      But, still you should be able to comment with a link.
      Wordpress is really messing with the comments!

      • Thanks. I have a couple of self hosted WordPress sites and don’t get this problem. Looks like it’s WordPress themselves that mess things about, rather than the software.

      • There may be a tech issue with their servers. I often have delays getting the blog to show up.
