OXY 3 —- DUCK N’ COVER!!

New(ish) Crosstex update

Crosstex8_31_2014

Assumption Parish Police Jury

The Office of Conservation and Assumption Parish Incident Command are reporting that seismic monitoring early Tuesday detected a brief period of increased seismic activity that appears to have been located in or near the eastern wall of the original Oxy Geismar 3 cavern. Though the number of micro-seismic events was elevated for several minutes, the number and strength were lower than have been witnessed in previous major events, and quickly diminished. Conservation and Assumption Parish Incident Command will continue to monitor the situation and advise the public of any developing concerns.

The parish officials know “subsurface activity near sinkhole/Oxy 3” and they STILL allow Crosstex to store the butane near there and they call it a CODE1. They means if anything happens they are fully responsible for workers’ well-being and nearby motorists etc.

NOTE:  We added to the Documents page the Texas Brine Contingency Plan that was in The Advocate last week.

Mother Of All Sinkholes Could Produce Blast Of 100 Hiroshimas, Chaos As Far As Houston, 1.5 Million Barrels Of Butane, Awakening New Madrid Theory, Waterford and River Bend Plants Are In Area

. . .  just to cheer everyone up!

NOTE – The blast potential was figured here with cavern at full capacity for butane. The cavern holds 1.5 million barrels but that is the capacity … not how much butane is in there.  Crosstex updates have the current butane amounts. So it is really less than 100 Hiroshimas.

What is Texas Brine doing with Oxy 3?

Freedomrox says  –

Texas Brine’s Daily Report is only as recent as 6/28/2013, but take note that they are attempting to use the old Oxy 3 as a Water Well, so I am confused…are they speaking of the actual Plugged Oxy 3 casing, or the old Oxy 3 Water well that is known to be contaminated? The way this reads, sounds as if they are thinking of perforating the casing around aquifer level.
Quote: “A 12 hour pump test and water sampling was completed on Oxy #3 6/27/2013 in order to determine the viability of Oxy #3 for future use as a water well. Weekly depth survey will be performed 6/28/2013″

The Report

Assumption Parish Police Jury

The Office of Conservation, in consultation with Assumption Parish Incident Command, is advising the public that Texas Brine has submitted a report detailing its consultant’s interpretation of the results of the 3D seismic survey of the Oxy Geismar 3/Bayou Corne area. The Office of Conservation, in its Jan. 14, 2013 directive to Texas Brine, required the company to conduct the 3D seismic survey and provide the results to Conservation and Assumption Parish Incident Command. The Office of Conservation and its contracted experts have begun review of the report and interpretation initially provided. Conservation staff considers the report, and the assertions of Texas Brine and its consultant on that report, to be preliminary only at this point, pending independent verification and analysis by Conservation’s consultants. Though that analysis and review has not yet been conducted, the Office of Conservation, in the interest of keeping the public informed, is providing the report…

11:45 a.m. Advisory from the Office of Conservation

CODE 3, CODE 3 . . .

leave that wheelbarrow full of pentolite right there . . . next to the butane cavern, Bill! We gotta scram!

Assumption Parish Police Jury

The Office of Conservation, in consultation with Assumption Parish Incident Command, is advising the public that the Oxy 3/sinkhole monitoring alert status has been raised to Code 3 – requiring all work inside and around the sinkhole to cease until further notice. Per Dr. Stephen Horton with USGS, seismic monitoring has detected an increasing trend of subsurface activity in the area around the sinkhole and Oxy 3 area below the sinkhole over the past few days. The seismic activity is limited to the Oxy 3/sinkhole area, showing no indication of impact to the Oxy 1 area. Monitoring is constantly ongoing in the area and Conservation will advise the public of significant changes in subsurface conditions.

Conservation Dept. Calls Code 2

Assumption Parish Police Jury

The Office of Conservation, in consultation with Assumption Parish Incident Command, is advising the public that the Oxy 3/sinkhole monitoring alert status has been raised to Code 2 – requiring all work directly in and over the sinkhole to cease until further notice. Seismic monitoring has detected elevated subsurface activity in the area around the sinkhole and Oxy 3 area indicative of fluid and gas movement below the sinkhole, and a further slough-in was observed along the southeastern side of the sinkhole this morning, with the access ramp from the Oxy 3 well pad to the sinkhole having sloughed in, along with several trees on either side of the ramp. The seismic activity is limited to the Oxy 3/sinkhole area, showing no indication of impact to the Oxy 1 area. Monitoring is constantly ongoing in the area and Conservation will continue to advise the public of significant changes in subsurface…
