    Good Lord. Of course the company should buyout anyone affected. How can it be any other way and still be within the integrity of the situation?

    "Probable" and "possible". What, they don't even know?

    These are small pockets of methane that formed naturally, too small to drill profitably. The probable ones are likely to be leaking a percentage of their natural gas into the sinkhole channel. Most of this is seen bubbling up in the sinkhole as it finds its way to the surface. It's a process that has been ongoing since the sinkhole started. Whether these pockets are feeding methane to the aquifer is not known. More than likely, the methane in the aquifer is coming from the sand strata, which is large enough to be drilled profitably.
