well back at ya JC, how ya been ?
this here is some hole isn't it ?
ya know what's really messed up ?
some days i wonder if it'll evolve to the point where some random cajun, smoking down by the bayou on a sunny day, miles away, spontaneously combusts
before ppl realize just how out of control this really is.
maybe some of this info will help you with your googling ... this
is to one of the first emergency directives i came across that
made me go hmmmmm ...
i cannot seem to copy/paste excerpts of it, so please pay attention to paragraphs 2 (last sentence), 4 (increased methane detected in wells
remediation warranted), 5 (health dangers) and then notice 'to whom' this directive is issued ... it isn't Texas Brine.
Pontchartrain Natural Gas Systems stores in the Dome and their caverns are evidently close to the sinkhole, hence the directive.
should you continue reading the directive, notice #s 3, and 5
knowing you, my friend, your google skills work just fine when you know what you're really searching.
to find 'storage' info, first you need to know who is storing there
TBrine isn't 'storing', that should be your first clue.
ps ... the company i see with the greatest amount of storage (caverns & volume) at the Napoleonville Dome structure is none other than DOW.
you'll probably appreciate this too, it's the original farm-out of the site via Golden Gate Petroleum.
here's a start ... dnr assets
i'm sure there are other reports available as this one is old (9/2012) but, storage is storage and if any of the 'operators/wells' are
, then their volume numbers likely increased.
however, they also may have decreased
, depending on who (operator & location) it is, as some are removing their pressurized
hence the lengthy time needed to complete the process.

[color=amber]That is a scenario I haven't seen yet, but it does make a sort of sick sense considering the ethical and moral values of
many of our government and business leaders.
has been around for about as long as you have or a bit longer.
(can link sources from the 70s & early 80s, you interested?)

you are correct.
the dangerous methane concentrations were detected and specifically addressed in the directive linked above (in this post)

any chance you could/would post some stills from that video that some of us (me) can't watch
hmmmmm, that's an interesting theory you present.
i'll expand on that in a later post, k?
in summary, you're on to something good, keep digging.
Corexit can never be 'fingered' as a culprit due to its proprietary components.
however, that will never change the obvious and ongoing interactions with the environment saturated in it.
the tides will continue and the corexit will be dispersed just as it was ... this cannot be denied or disputed.
later on the rest.
thanks to all and i'm glad to read many more are sharing their thoughts ... welcome to the thread.
it is sad to accept defeat but at this stage, there just is no mitigating or controlling that which is unknown
if nothing else, Katrina taught this generation that absolute truth.
it is good that so very many have the time and opportunity to adapt and make necessary changes before all is lost.
thanks for all the contributions, i've some catching up to do.
oh yeah ... reply to post by CajunBoy
if you're friend has never encountered such a situation previously, suggest he doesn't get snowballed at/near 48%. if cajuns really are stubborn,
tell him to stand firm.
