Ok, I have already vetted this article by Deborah and she is on point with this article.
They are failing hardcore with the health monitoring around the hole, scary things. See what I mean when I said no one down here trust anyone or what
Ok, few new people joined this thread and leme address some of the things they posted. Leme give a recap for those just joining us.
@misskat1 The Strategic Oil Reserve is not located in this salt dome, it is located in the White Castle salt dome 30 or so miles north of the
Napoleonville salt dome.
@St. Udio I can tell you that the water coming out of wells around the area are NOT 100 degrees. It comes out nice and cool at around 70 degrees. Salt
domes are not intruding into other salt domes. Only place they are connected is from a layer of salt under the ground at about 20,000 ft to 30,000 ft.
Watch where you get your information. I've already proven earlier in this thread that many reporting on this issue has been sensationalizing this
disaster. BTW Asphalt volcanoes can only happen on the GoM floor and not on land. The GoM provides the right environment for these to form.
@Kituwa that same video was posted earlier in the thread. There are many differences between the Lake Peigneur accident and this one. Lake Peigneur
was a salt mine that was accidently drilled into. The mine unlike the salt caverns have a lot more area for water to come into. The fresh water rushed
into the mine and started eroding away some of the mine. Once water reaches a certain salinity level it does not dissolve salt anymore, that or
equilibrium is reached. This disaster on the other hand is a breach of a salt dome cavern that stored brine. Brine is essentially salt water. It has
already reached the salinity level that it would no longer dissolve salt.
Ladies and Gentlemen who just joined us, watch out for article sensationalism.
At this point right now, no other salt domes are at risk.
This is localized to this dome only and there has been no sign at this point that the entire Napoleonville salt dome is collapsing. It is only Oxy #3
cavern that was compromised. The water in the hole currently is brine, it can not dissolve salt.
