So I always figured we would see the integrity of another cavern be questioned and mostlike we would see a failure. Now Oxy 3 has the butane but they have been steadily relocating the butane since August or September. I recall that it will take upwards of a year to empty that cavern. I do wonder if they knew in August that Oxy 3 was going to fail and decided to be semi-proactive.

New flyover video up. Also we have a serious problem, we now have not only cavern 3 in question, but we have cavern 1 they are starting to question the integrity. I'm on my phone right now, I'll post the information up when I get home.
Oxy 1 is brine
Oxy 3 is the butane
Keep an eye towards Oxy Geismar #1, for it is another engineering disaster waiting to happen.
Coming up next;
Could there be another contributing factor to this disaster as well? Mainly the Hooker Oil Drilling Well #1, just feet away from the Oxy Geismar #3 Salt Cavern, and over a 15 year period depleting the formation at the same depths as the bottom of Oxy Geismar #3.
We shall explore these possibilities in my next article.. Louisiana Sinkhole: Comedy of Errors?
