Tuesday News

Parish Blog: Cavern 3 dropped a foot. And they report they are doing lots of work.  Maybe they  are making the helicorders jump with trucks etc..

Texas Brine’s letter to Conservation is up (9-23).  These have been slow in showing on the DNR website.  The attached charts show what they doing with the vacuum cleaner.

The updates about the big fire or flaring operation near Crosstex’s butane caverns on Sunday will get added to that post (scroll down).  Negligent Crosstex has not given out an ‘update‘ for 9 days. They have not explained where their 24/7 men were who were supposed to be minding the store.

NOTE: The seismic news today will get added into the NEXT POST

On Texas Brine ‘Updates’ & Wed. News

A new “fact sheet” from Texas Brine – they are sticking to the swamp gas story.

The 3 places to find Texas Brine “updates”.  Not where you think they are.
Main update page.  Where they claim they inform the public but has the least information.
Then on the DNR‘s page “All Bayou Corne Updates“,  select “Daily Reports” > selcect “Texas Brine“.
A hidden extra page with some sample data (sometimes and with vague information) is found by going back  to the DNR “All Bayou Corne Updates” page and skipping the useless, never updated “Texas Brine Drilling Operations” page and instead selecting  “Plans and Reports” and you get “Texas Brine Operation Reports” where they often have 2 interesting items; a Daily Report and a letter to  DNR about how in-compliance they are. And those letters are signed by …. Veep, Bruce Martin!  Spinner_AL

So you bookmark THESE 3 pages:       TB1    TB2    TB3

DOOR #1 DOOR #2 DOOR #3

Thanks for everyone’s help. We can not give up.

Terrific seismic activity continued overnight and the crews are working in violation of the Code 3 order as evidenced by this LA12 chart. All the charts look like this. Not even bothering with a Droopy dog cartoon.  PuterMan sent this page of charts from May 5 showing dramatic happenings.
