Note - This man's water comes from his private well - not city or parish water.
Some comments from the Fark Forum - Sinkhole on Fire:
.The Revelation of John, Chapter 9, verse 2: "And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit." And we are approaching the end of 2012, aren't we?
."methane trapped in a water aquifer, stabilize the salt dome, released natural gas and crude oil as it collapsed, Three vent wells already are burning off gas, Texas Brine Co, The sinkhole, now 8 acres at the surface, is in a swampy area"
.It's a matter of infrastructure, to store the gas you'd need to put in a lot of pipe and various equipment. And a growing sinkhole is not exactly the most suitable place for that.
.Was the salt dome being used as a storage tank for the natural gas and crude oil? Or had it just seeped in there?
- And where did the salt dome come from in the first place? Was it natural, or created from salt mining, or a byproduct of some other industrial process?
- And why did the salt dome collapse? Earthquake? Industrial accident? Just something that happens?
- Actually, there are hundreds of questions that run through my mind when I find out that one chemical company is renting a salt dome filled with crude oil and natural gas from another chemical company, and that salt dome has collapsed and flooded the surrounding environment with toxins. But I'm pretty sure I wouldn't like the answers, so I'm glad the article didn't provide any.
Answer: There is probably not enough methane there to make setting up any sort of operation to collect it worthwhile. This is just a relatively small underground water aquifer, not a big hydrocarbon deposit. There is probably just a limited amount of crude oil and methane from a small amount of organic matter was trapped in that anaerobic environment.
Anyhow, been following this since August when it began. Over 150 homes were evacuated then and remain evacuated to this day - with no return home for these families - even projected at this point.|
There is ongoing and increasing earthquake activity in this area.
Bubbling which began and has intensified - involving areas many miles from the sinkhole.
Everything that's going on with this is fascinating and changing daily.
So . . .if anyone else is interested in checking this out:
Here's the Assumption Parish Police Jury Blog that has ongoing updates (including videos and pics).
and here's The Louisiana Sinkhole Bugle (in the column on the right are lists of other great links also)
Oh, and the Lake Peigneur YouTube link (referred to in the comments) was removed by A&E.
Here's another video. The Lake Peigneur Disappearing Lake incident happened in 1980 and -
for anyone who hasn't watched THIS - it's a must see - simply unbelievable!
The sinkhole, which now has an 8-acre surface area [previously reported at 7 acres], is located in swamps between the communities south of La. 70 on property leased by Texas Brine from Occidental Chemical Corp.
