SF ChronicleAnswers on link between injection wells and quakes

[internet problem seems fixed for now 🙂 ]


Helicorders grmubling at 5 a.m. – It isn’t workers. July 10 story (we missed) from WAFB – has video. Oh, but they went back to Code 1. Still work doesn’t usually start til about 7 or 8 a.m. at Lake FUBAR.

UPDATE: At 6:49 a.m. CST there was a giant 6.0 quake up in Alaska. It may affect helicorders. At 7:12 LA14 had major fluid movement but not all the helicorders showing that. LA12 had the same starting a few minutes earlier. But LA12 was already grumpy before the Alaska quake.

Real Coastal WarriorsFlesh-eating bacteria in the Gulf, more. BP screwed up all the lifeforms in the Gulf.

The DNR hasn’t put out a subsidence report since January(!). Did they not bother to do one or are they just keeping it secret? And the last bubble site map was from May. It shows lots of sites north of LA70. What’s a “seismic shothole”??

Bayou Corne getting some ink at last –

Attorney, Stuart Smith’s blog has a lot of news today about frack quakes. Including this, from The Guardian, UK –

Pumping water underground could trigger major earthquake, say scientists
New studies suggest injecting water for geothermal power or fracking can lead to larger earthquakes than previously thought

And this from Mother JonesConfirmed: Fracking Triggers Quakes and Seismic Chaos  There is also news about the Arkansas tar-sands oil spill on the blog.

Strange Sounds – Four Studies Demonstrate That Fracking and Geothermal Power Produce Earthquakes

We added to the sidebar a button link to the Ship Shoal 225 B-2 oil rig leak news

We feel more and more the rig accident has a lot to do with where it is in proximity to faults so that’s why we have a lot of news about faults and that accident lately.

LA12 is quite a bit worse today!

2013_LA12_May27Terrific seismic activity. It is not just “micro-quakes” as Texas Brine claims. And they have another deceptive “explanation” about “bulking” in the cavern in this article:

The AdvocateRock to sinkhole ratio a mystery 

David J. Mitchell – “One of the lingering questions surrounding the Assumption Parish sinkhole — raised last fall when fears of more sinkholes emerged — remains an issue of too much rock.”

“. . . . As the sinkhole has grown over the last nine months and as the 2,258-foot-tall cavern continued to fill with rock and sediment— at a rate of three feet per day.”

Dire Warning for Louisiana! Gulf of Mexico Collapse Scenario.

Massive Explosive Potential in Louisiana and Gulf of Mexico. Doomsday?

By Freedomrox

[snip] . . . The Oil layer nearby known as “Big Hum” cannot account for all of the methane pressures Bayou Corne is expressing. If the drilling keeps up next to the Eastern walls by the Australian Drilling Operations….then a total collapse of the Eastern wall is a very high probability. Pressurized Methane Gas is the precursor of liquid oil migrating through the Yellow Seep Zone. I personally see no way to stem or stop this. This is an environmental disaster that will in one way or the other impact and empty all of the surrounding areas in the years to come. Most of the Gulf is in extreme danger!

The mouth of the Gulf of Mexico is collapsing at the gullet of the Mississippi River. When you take out heavy fluids from cracks, fissures, and reservoirs, and do not replace something of equal density, then logic tells you it will fail. This has been the oil industry’s dirtiest secret, and one you have been lied to about since you were a child. The oil industry would have you believe that you can get something for nothing, and never have to put anything back. . .

[snip] “. . . .what is not listed here is Texas Brine’s expertise as the provider of the major component for hydraulic fracturing fluids, nor it’s expertise in storing ‘Fracking’ fluids within these caverns, nor does it list expertise in determining whether there are pre-existing hydrocarbons underneath the cavities they create. This is what the authorities claim is the case at the Napoleonville facility. Natural gas and oil just so happened to be BESIDE the Salt Diapir, and tapped into by coincedence when a known salt cavern was not within the Salt, and laying upon Shale, next to several abandoned Oil Wells, especially the Hooker Oil Well # 1. Watch them pin it all on this one.
