Drilling on wells to begin at Assumption sinkhole Last Modified: Thursday, September 13, 2012 at 9:46 p.m. Bayou Corne’s 350 or so residents remain under a mandatory evacuation while scientists determine the reason for the sinkhole’s emergence off La. 70 on Aug. 3. The hole’s width of 620 feet has not changed since initial surveys, Boudreaux said, but recent studies suggest its depth could be less than the 420 feet it measured two weeks after the hole appeared... The bubbling continues in the three locations — Grand Bayou, Bayou Corne and Triche Canal, parallel to Bayou Corne — but has decreased in the Bayou Corne area, Boudreaux added. www.houmatoday.com/article/20120913/ARTICLES/120919835 ________________________________________
Ottawa sinkhole swallows car, but not driver Highway 174 eastbound could be closed for days as sinkhole grows to size of 'Olympic pool' Last Updated: Sep 5, 2012 7:39 PM ET
Posted: Sunday, 30 September 2012 6:33AM Sinkhole grows, hits Assumption business and home values
The sinkhole in Assumption Parish keeps getting bigger.
The parish's director of homeland security and emergency preparedness, John Boudreaux, says a 15-hundred square foot section of the earth caved in last week, pulling down several trees and part of a road.
The road that caved in was built to assist in the cleanup efforts. The sinkhole is about four acres in size and has grown since it emerged on August third.
150 homes in two nearby communities are evacuated as a result of the sinkhole.
Bayou Corne Sinkhole Raises Concerns at Lake Peigneur - Posted: Oct 8, 2012 7:01 PM Mills said he plans to introduce a bill for the second time that would require companies to conduct an environmental impact statement before expanding natural gas storage caverns at Lake Peigneur. A similar bill failed in the last legislative session. Residents at Lake Peigneur said such legislation would be a relief, but the Louisiana Oil and Gas Association said it would be a set back from the industry. www.katc.com/news/bayou-corne-sinkhole-raises-concerns-at-lake-peigneur/
BAYOU CORNE — Texas Brine Co. began burning off natural gas Friday that was trapped in a water aquifer near a sinkhole in northern Assumption Parish, officials said.
This was the first time state, parish or company officials have been able to get gas to flow from four “vent wells” driven into the ground around the sinkhole in order to draw the dangerous gas out of the aquifer.
Located in the swamps between Bayou Corne and Grand Bayou south of La. 70 South, the sinkhole is more than 5½ acres in size at the surface and has prompted authorities to issue a standing evacuation order on Aug. 3 applying to 150 homes.
Gas venting was stopped Thursday night and reached a “modest” pressure of 30 pounds per square inch at the wellhead, company officials said in a news release.
Contractors hooked up a temporary flaring system Friday morning and the gas will be allowed to flare, or burn off, this weekend during daytime hours, company officials said.
“Next week, additional water will be removed from the casing to allow greater natural gas flow,” officials said in the statement. “In addition, a more permanent flaring system will be installed to allow more continuous venting.”
Scientists believe the gas was released, along with crude oil, from underground pockets alongside the Napoleonville Dome when a Texas Brine salt cavern failed and caused the sinkhole.
