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.

Lexington Says Texas Brine Isn’t Covered For La. Sinkhole

Law360, New York (March 17, 2015, 2:33 PM ET) — Lexington Insurance Co. isn’t required to defend Texas Brine Co. LLC against class allegations that the company created a potentially dangerous sinkhole, because Lexington’s policies expired more than 15 years before the ground collapsed in 2012, the insurer told a Louisiana federal court Monday.

Thurs. News, Boone Dam Snow Melt Fears < UPDATED

See next post for link to map of Lake FUBAR and helicorder link.  Everything still on active mode there.
DOWNarrowSM LA14 showed a big 2 hour long disruption just after 1 a.m. and another 2 hour long session just after 3 a.m..

This comment at Zero Hedge says they wonder what will happen to Boone Dam when all this snow melt comes down the river.

“TVA drew Boone down to below winter pool levels to take some pressure off of the sinkhole/mud geysers, so it only has to hold back something like a 145 ft. wall of water. Which is fine – until the snow pack in the mountains melts in a couple of weeks. Then you have those two rivers with fifteen miles of water in them filling up REALLY fast. The river below the Boone dam will be swollen, too. I don’t think they can just open the floodgates on Boone all the way. So Boone fills up, water migration that caused the sinkholes/mud geysers gets worse, and all of a sudden you have Boone tsunami.” . . . (more)

DNR Knows the Water is Getting Contaminated from Texas Brine’s Disaster

This 2012 DNR document shows Shaw Group (new name now) did a simulation study on migration of chloride from the Bayou Corne sinkhole into Mississippi River Alluvial Aquifer and it showed the aquifer getting contaminated.

From Shaw Group – Bayou Corne Evaluation of Chloride Migration from Bayou Corne Sinkhole in Mississippi River Alluvial Aquifer (MRAA), November 14, 2012

The study has charts showing the water levels all around Lake FUBAR and beyond.

Also we found this Nov. 2012 report from Isotech showing the amount of methane taken in their samples.

This 2012 DNR map of the area shows how much toxic crud is at risk of getting into the water should there be a big explosion or catastrophe at Lake FUBAR. See east of Lake FUBAR on the map. You can take this 2012 DNR status report and mark it all up with a red pencil.

Explosive Methane Fault Migration: Gulf to La. Salt Domes?

Louisiana’s onshore faults and fractures link to Gulf of Mexico where methane gas has been leaking since April 2010 when BP wrecked the Macondo well, MC 252. Presently, Apache Corporation is trying to stop methane that is migrating from its well. . .

. . . . Aside from gas migrating from Apache’s well in the Gulf off Louisiana’s coast, at least two regional methane gas leakage events now occur near the Gulf, at Lake Peigneur and Bayou Corne, are linked: Each is manmade due to salt dome mining, rather than solely natural events. . . . (more)
