Wow. That's uhm. Pretty big.
Know what will solve that?
More tax cuts.

"On Fire" and "being sent to flare" aren't precisely the same thing.

Will we get lucky and see it engulf all of Louisiana?

"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"

Jesus. I have never seen one article so short with so, but with so many words that describe exactly the type of place I dont want to ever live or visit.

Maybe we should let them handle it on their own; sort of a dry-run at secession."

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?

My brother was in a hospital there last year. The nurses there did not know what MRSA was...he left and is still alive and whole.

No no, it's 'less regulation'. Probably need both though to really drive it home.

How long before they cry for the Feds for money?
 
2012-11-18 07:28:16 PM
Serious question. Is there no way a lot of the methane can be collected for fuel, rather than just burning it off? Kinda like trash dumps started doing quite awhile ago? Or is it venting so quickly that the infrastructure and cost to set it up would likely be a waste by the time they got it going therefore it's better and more environmentally sound to just burn it off instead?
 
2012-11-18 07:28:21 PM
Can we get BP to pay for this one? BTW how does this make the site different from the rest of the state?
 
2012-11-18 07:28:22 PM
Why can't they extract it commercially?

You mean to tell me you have too much methane, so you're just gonna burn it?

Not yet, but give it another week to swallow more ground and emit more gas.

Agreed, and I LMAO at your post.

As opposed to the 33.4 million acre sinkhole that is the rest of Louisana.

But enough about subby's mom.

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.
