Monday News, Crosstex Switcheroo and Flood Risk Maps

New DNR Inspection Report says water level inside the berm is dropping. See end of report.

Thanks to Freedomrox for tip – 😉

Crosstex came out with a batch of updates(!). The latest one is for April 23rdNow they are only a WEEK behind with the “daily” updates 🙂  For APRIL 23:

Well #1 – 48,533 barrels of normal butane
Well #2 – 28,862 barrels of lpg mix

So propane was sold off or moved out? LPG mix … what’s that?

Liquefied Petroleum Gas = LPG.

This example is 60% C3H8 Propane / 40% C4H10 Butane but we can’t say what “mix” Crosstex has down there. Propane is now a “mix” with butane! That sounds real safe next to a collapsing salt dome! Let’s look some more!

LPG Material Safety Data Sheet < oh! It’s highly flammable and is explosive if mixed with air!

The AdvocateA bump of water coming down the Mississippi River has prompted the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to start conducting twice-a-week levee inspections along the lower Mississippi River.

A standing river flood warning is continued –

...THE FLOOD WARNING CONTINUES FOR THE FOLLOWING RIVERS IN
LOUISIANA...
  MISSISSIPPI RIVER AT RED RIVER LANDING AFFECTING EAST BATON
  ROUGE...POINTE COUPEE AND WEST FELICIANA PARISHES . . . . (more)

The rivers are on this map  Donaldson forecast (not far from Lake FUBAR) and Baton Rouge:



Lake FUBAR is in  PANEL 50, section 22007C0050D  in this flood risk map
Panel 50 map   But it’s a 1975 map. FEMA is using old maps.

QUESTIONS FOR HELICORDER SUBCONTRACTOR

1. Where is the updated website promised in January under Directive 1? Is Ceri it, because if so..it isn’t updated with the additional Geo Wells?
2. At what microvolt is each geophone set at, in all locations, LA10-16, and where are the large deep geophone readings.. GEOPHONE WELLS 1,2, and 3? They are in operation, yet the public is not receiving any readings…why?
3. Can the e-mail given at the top of the page get fixed? No one getting answers back.

New Features on This Blog

  • All of the recent legal documents posts and other post with links to all those dockets re in a new section of the Documents page headed ‘Lawsuits’.
  • Added on the Documents page also is the August 15, 2012 Crosstex (butane cavern operators) “Worst Case Scenario” letter to DEQ. Sean Atkins, VP of Compliance for Crosstex Energy Services, L.P. says that “Crosstex believes that the public safety is not at risk due to operations at the Crosstex Facility”.
  • The live map of US radiation readings, Radiation Network, was added to the sidebar under ‘Nuke’ heading.
  • Also new to the sidebar under ‘Gov’t.’ we added the SONRIS weekly report (of wells) in Assumption Parish.
  • In the ‘Seismic Monitoring’ section we added the ANF earthquake map because USGS has not been reporting all the recent quakes at the New Madrid Fault area.
  • CORS (they monitor earth movement) got added there too. They have installed new monitors around the collapsed salt dome.

We will keep calling the water-filled collapsed salt dome area “Lake FUBAR”  since it won the most votes by far in our POLL.
Lake Greed and Lake Jindal came in second and third 🙂  Thanks to  readers who sent new links in!
