Police: 3 dead, 2 in serious condition after Gibson plant explosion

GIBSON, La. —State Police said three workers were killed and two people were listed in serious condition following an explosion reported Thursday at a natural gas pipeline in Gibson, Louisiana.

The blast was reported about 11 a.m. at a pipeline at Williams Partners’ natural gas facility. The facility is owned by Williams Partners’ subsidiary Transcontinental Gas Pipeline Co.

Williams said that the facility was not operational at the time of the incident and gas was not flowing through the pipeline system when the explosion occurred.

The 13 Williams employees stationed at the facility have been accounted for and were not injured, Williams said. However, of the 19 contractors working at the site, three were killed, State Police said. Two people were injured and listed in serious condition. . . .
. . . . Williams also owned a plant in Gesimar, Louisiana, that experienced an explosion in June 2013. One person was killed in that blast.
As a result of the incident, the company was charged with a series of violations, ranging from willful to serious, and was initially ordered to pay a penalty of $99,000. The penalty was later reduced to $36,000, according to OSHA records. . . .

They Turned the Helicorders OFF After 2 Big Events at Lake FUBAR This Morning <UPDATED with Chile Quake

What the heck??  Heli_ANI

LA-11 shows the 2 big seismic events at 9 a.m. and after 11 a.m this morning. The each lasted over half an hour.





Two 3.7 quakes in Sun City, Kansas – [1], [2].


At 5:54 p.m. CST there was a big quake off the coast of Chile – 7.9M. 8.3 Report & MAP.

Then the helicorders came back on (sometime after 7:40 p.m. EST) showing bells ringing after this mega-quake in Chile.

CBS – Massive Earthquake Rocks Chile; Tsunami Alert Issued For Hawaii



Underground Event at 4 A.M.

Something fell in down there at 4:13 a.m. [9:13 UTC] .  LA-12 chart (goes batty also at 3 a.m.)– all the helicorders showed it.

This 2.6 quake in mid-Kansas was at a different time.  USGS report. It was 3 miles deep and might not be a frack-quake since it isn’t near the OK border.

Maybe the charts are jumping from people stomping around in a rush to move back into the de-listed evacuation zone!

CrosstexHarryThere has been no Crosstex butane cavern update since Feb. 4!

Looking around for newer info we found this –  [info from Jan. 2012]

Executive Summary
The Napoleonville Storage Facility (Facility) utilizes more than the threshold quantity of a “regulated flammable substance (10,000 pounds)” in the processing of natural gas, where butanes are received by pipeline and stored in underground caverns until being transported off-site via pipeline for further market distribution. Therefore, this Facility is subject to the Risk Management Plan (RMP) requirements codified in Title 40 of the Code of Federal Regulations Part 68 (40 CFR 68) administered by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA).

The Facility is also subject to Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA’s) Process Safety Management (PSM) standard (29 CFR 1910.119) and public receptors are located within the worst-case release scenario. Therefore, the Facility is subject to Prevention Program 3 requirements as stated in 40 CFR 68.10. OSHA’s PSM standard closely parallels requirements outlined in USEPA’s RMP Rule. All elements required by USEPA’s 40 CFR 68 – Program 3 Prevention Program are also required by OSHA’s PSM.

This line is interesting:

Last Safety Inspection By    Never had one
OSHA Star or Merit Ranking    No

You can look up more info here-

This EDGAR 2014 info that says the butane cavern is “inactive” – but we recount in 2014 there were changes to the cavern #1 and #2 contents that were pretty big in 2014.

EnLink’s safety data sheet for butane.

Like the sands in an hourglass . . . .

[ title is voice from that soap opera …;) ]

PLUS they are trying to put any sort of setting on those numbers on the right side of the helicorder charts!


LA-17s are thumping . . .

A bunch of stuff from 2013<- includes BP and Texas Brine

A lot of misc. items on all subjects




We found this item on South American lithium and brine and wondered if Texas Brine had an interest in the lithium craze (auto batteries) going on now. We didn’t see Louisiana on the list. Or here. Not that they can’t keep a secret.



Weekend News + New Madrid Shakes


YellowStn_Poster  There are strange west-coast events (volcano, L.A. quake) that are on the Yellowstone blog today.
There isn’t a direct connection to Yellowstone in the stories but maybe it it is connected somehow and it will come out later. And the Mich. quake this week is very out of the ordinary. It is mentioned in comments in the next post
(Tues. News).

Check the Yellowstone blog for updates on these events.
