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.

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 –  http://data.rtknet.org/rmp/rmp.php?facility_id=100000122565&detail=3  [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

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.
