Giant Sinkhole: Hydrogen Sulfide is in the oil — Residents reporting “really acute health impacts” (AUDIO)

Title: Officials seek gas source

Date: December 10, 2012

Dangerous hydrogen sulfide gas was detected Friday in fumes coming from crude oil […]

Company officials said Friday Texas Brine is looking at equipment to scrub the possibly sulfur-laden oil and put it in sealed transport containers to prevent any H2S releases.

“They are looking into ways to address the hydrogen sulfide issue and the sulfur in the oil,” said Sonny Cranch, spokesman for the Houston-based company. […]

That the oil has sulfur content is not unheard of, although Louisiana is more often known for its “sweet” crude, which has a low sulfur content. “Sour” crude has higher sulfur content. […]

John Boudreaux, director of the parish Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness, acknowledged that discovery of hydrogen sulfide from the oil fumes may point to the source of the gas being different in the investigatory well than the vent well. The oil was sampled for direct testing, he said. […]

[…] Romero said he sometimes smells the sinkhole, which sits behind a tree line on the other side of a nearby state road. The morning before the interview, he said, was the first time the fumes came into his house. The air outside was heavy and thick, and soon the smell was inside, hanging low about the house. […]

Romero probably smelled the stench of the crude oil floating on the top of the sinkhole. […]

Romero is concerned about radioactive material that was produced by Texas Brine’s mining operation more than a decade ago. […]

In 1995, Texas Brine asked state authorities for permission to dump “low amounts” of soils containing underground radioactive material into the cavern that is now collapsed. […]

Texas Brine’s Cranch said there was a “serious discussion” about storing the NORM in the cavern, but that never happened. Instead, he said, the company left the material near the wellhead and above ground, as allowed by state law. Cranch said NORM has a “low level” of radiation and a “low half-life.” […]

Chemist Wilma Subra, LEAN Technical Advisor: A number of them come back on a daily basis to check on what’s going on with their homes and as a result of that they’re developing health impacts during the time period when they’re there and being exposed so we at LEAN have been doing what we call symptom logs that the send us when they do have health impacts associated with being back in the area. And we’ve compiled that data and it’s also on the LEAN website.

Garland Robinette: What kind of health impacts?

Subra: Headaches, sore throat, nose irritation, burning and watery eyes. Really acute impacts the minute they get to the area they start experiencing these, and then after they leave the area, over time they start dissipating, but when they go back the next day or in a couple of days they develop them again.

    The Louisiana government should be putting a forced evacuation in place for the sake of the people's safety. This is not a situation where there is going to be a fix, nor is it going to suddenly go a way. With the rapid erosion of the ground, release of hydrocarbons and hydrogen sulfide, and probable release of radioactive materials this area is not safe for human habitat. I know it's almost Christmas but frankly I would rather be spending Christmas at a Motel 8 rather then watching my neighbors and loved ones die.

    I have a feeling that this situation is near a tipping point, and that once it goes over we'll see it go from bad to far far worse in an extremely rapid time span. To the point that it's going to catch people unaware to dire consequences.

  • Sickputer

    bw typed these pixels of light:

    "The Louisiana government should be putting a forced evacuation in place for the sake of the people's safety."

    SP: I agree, at least within 20 miles, but they don't have the guts to admit they are totally unprepared to control the sinkhole and emissions..

    A forced evacuation opens up a can of worms for the Texas Brine company and Cajun officials because nobody wants to pay reparations to nearby residents. Buying out 150 Bayou Corne households at 100K a pop is a lot of moohlah. 150 million.

    Figure over 1 billion smackers to relocate everyone in Morgan City.

    These Cajun politicians and Texas nucleocrats have their empty heads behind the proverbial eight ball.

    Watch out if they start quoting the expression Force de majeure.


      They wanting the ones left there to get sick and die, so no lawsuit outside the one already lodged in federal court, Class Action, no less.

      As for all the ones that left, then they know they can tie them up in litigation for years to come. THen when a jury finally awards the residents a few million, an appeal will be filed and a federal judge will reduce the amount to near nothing….just like Hutchinson, Hansas.

      Now, is this evil personified, or what?

    • 16Penny 16Penny

      Your math is off.

      150 homes and families,

      $100,000 assumed household average,

      $15 million broken dreams bought with blood money.

      Still sad even if it is not 150 million.

      • Sickputer

        Thanks 16penny… I was at a restaurant when I posted. Can't remember if my math or iPhone typing was the culprit.

        For some frame of reference for possible American evacuees:

        In Japan there are 70,000 displaced residents from the five towns, two villages, and two cities inside the 12.5 km no-go zone designated by Tepco. Of course we know many more citizens outside the small exclusion zone have evacuated.

        There is an updated November 2012 document by Jeffrey Hays that details the convoluted Japanese reparations:

        An excerpt:

        TEPCO will have to pay an estimated ¥4.54 trillion (about $530 billion) in damages over the two-year period following the outbreak of the Fukushima disaster according to a government panel scrutinizing the utility's financial state."

    If you're experiencing health problems, It really is time to leave folks.

    • CharlesW

      Good point!

    • richard richard

      yes, time to leave indeed, especially by the description of side-effects when returning home for a short visit.

      this is a very tough situation. people have to move out indefinitely and who/is there anyone to be blamed.

      I know Texas Brine may be held responsible, but there may be larger issues at hand then simply a salt mine collapse. It may be from rising sea levels, for example.

      The whole thing may blow up, but it may be next week, or next century. And if it does blow up, who wants to move back there ?

      To me it seems unprecedented on trying to define the scope of this drama. And again, something so unknown but yet the media will not touch it.

      I don't even bother to mention the subject to anyone here in Oz, they'll have no idea.

      Bottomline, I'm with the others who say 'run!', don't look back. I just don't know who you really need to sue, if anyone.


        According to the evidence, Texas Brine, and Louisiana Dept. of Natural Resources. Texas Brine royally screwed up, told DNR back in January of 2011, and DNR covered up the fact that Texas Brine informed them of a failed MIT, instead of warning the residents.
        There are lawyers literally lining up to sue on contingency if nothing else. If resident's truly want revenge, then do not enter a class action suit. Do it individually, and then have the Defendant foot the Lawyer's fees.


    Get out… Run, don't walk. $875 bucks a week gets the grand suite at the Motel 6 in Jackson, Mississippi. Take it!


    Again I must say, I just wished Ms. Subra would have addressed the H2S coming up in Observation Well 3A. That is the well that is directly in the cavern. So if H2S is coming up in the OW 3A, then it is also coming up into the waters of, (what I termed), Lake Oxy 3.

    What do you do then?

    If you are a resident and can't answer that question, then it is time to go. Fight and fight as hard as you can…from a safe distance.

    • timemachine2020 timemachine2020

      Freedomrox – I was not happy that neither of the ladies mentioned the explosive capability of the butane and propane storage wells in their worst case scenario comments. Or mention the 2 nuclear plants within a 50 mile radius. You wanna talk worst case scenarios? Better not, we all know whats at risk. New Madrid anyone?


        The Gulf Coast is being forcibly evacuated. This isn't a conspiracy theory, bu an admitted fact that the Army Corps of Engineers has 40 billion to empty the Gulf Coast within teh to fourteen years, so that the oil and gas companies can have their own little playground. In this case, I would say they have won.

        What is scarier for me is with the usage of all the chemicals in the Gulf…well, let me put it this way…is it to create a harvestable algae? I know this is way out there, but read on NatGeo about the future of algae as a fuel. So where would this come from?

        Just random thoughts.

        • richard richard

          frankly Frox, i find this idea hard to believe.

          no one can give up an entire state to companies. there is more then human lives involved.

          the flora and fauna are always my first priority, and so my first thoughts on this claim go straight to the wildlife of the area.

          there's bound to be all sorts of critters that can only survive in the environment they are currently living in. To disrupt that environment is criminal and deadly to the inhabitants.

          Animal activist groups won't let such a thing occur. It's like trying to set up a dam the size of a state, it won't happen. (Well, Australians have the balls to stop this type of thing, we stopped the Franklin Dam scheme in Tasmania).

          i'd like to see some real valid information that clearly sets out the plans you say the Army Eng's have.

          Cause frankly, it sounds a little like the 'mass depopulation' meme that gets around, which I find incongruent.

          Wow, maybe not so crazy Freedom. I ran a search with this algae fuel and sustainable development, since we have been infiltrated with this crap from all directions this year… and here is what I found: Louisiana is the leading US state for scaled open-pond, freshwater algae
          development, based on temperature, land availability and suitability, CO2, water, sunshine and
          infrastructure. Its water resources, rainfall and evaporation rates make it uniquely suited to this
          low-cost technology.

          • FREEDOMROX

            Crap! It was just a random thought. Kinda conspiracy like, you know? A brain teaser…and then you lay this on me.

            It literally looks as if they are planning on terraforming the State of Louisiana into a feedstock. Imagine what that would do the wildlife in the swamps? Next time I am keeping the random thoughts to myself.

              I get request to find things all the time, even from some pretty "high up" investigators… The people in Lafayette Parish are listed on the UN Agenda 21 website as approved vendors. I thought it was all bull, until I actually began reading it on the United Nations own website! The best kept secrets are the ones done right in the open… Anyway, you should have seen their faces when I began quoting things I knew in front of them… Just little catch phrases I knew only they would pick up on. I had a blast! haha freaking sustainable development, another term for we are taking your land…

              • FREEDOMROX

                Agenda 21 is everywhere. Good for you. So many think that true environmentalists are the UN globalist mouthpieces. Not so.
                A true environmentalist wants to balance environment and human habitation. Just as you stated, the UN Agenda 21 wants to use activists to help stealing land.
                I am not what you would call a tree hugger, at all, but I learned from a wise Cherokee, that "Flesh speaks, Wood Listens."
                I do not know you, but could not be prouder of you than if my own daughter. You radiate a spirit of resistance and courage.
                At one time, during a hiatus, I was making a living by consultation and research for many Federal Judges who engaged my services for pennies on the dollar to find precedents that would allow them to rule on certain cases. I later found that it was a manipulation, and shook all confidence in anything resembling justice left within a courtroom.
                Everything is a fabrication, and all is bent towards one agenda or the other.
                A mistake, that in my naivete' will never repeat again.

                  I know exactly what you speak of… I hate to say it, but I have seen it up close, and it's terribly sad for those who are screwed by the system. What I would like to know is.. WHY DO NONE OF THESE UPDATES MENTION A SINK HOLE? The United States Website for Golden Gate still states Under Construction when you attempt to get on the Napoleonville portion of it. I found a place where some investors speak back and fourth, I will be spilling the beans on one of these sites!

                  • FREEDOMROX

                    Since they are on the Hensarling just a little over two miles away, then they can omit anything about a "Storage Cavern", since they have no plans to exploit it.
                    It is the axiom of "plausible deniability".
                    It is a technicality that all of them use.
                    Remeber that if on federal site, then you will be flagged and scrutinized. May be better to look up the investors individually, and inform, but honestly, they could care less. They just want their money back and more….

  • razzz razzz

    Residents really need to leave or forced to leave until the sinkhole and its associated problems are figured out.

    When hydrogen sulfide gas started coming out the Tex Brine test or observation well, they shut it in while they moved in equipment to scrub and filter out venting poisons. In meantime, the hydrogen sulfide gas found its way up and out of the sink hole now. No guarantee the deadly gas will migrate back to failed cavern well pipe again when they start it back up.

  • WindorSolarPlease

    I agree that everyone should leave that area for their own health/safety.

    My concern is, if they can afford to leave. I would rather be far away and sleep in my car or a tent. However, those people should not be expected to live that way, they are victims from the corporations.

    It's hard enough making one mortgage payment a Month and having to live close enough that is safe, to get to work. They have not only lost the value of their homes, but a place that is no longer safe to be in. If it isn't safe to live in that area then it's not safe to work there either, so jobs are lost. I'm not sure their drinking water is even safe.

    Are they, paying for the people in the area for their relocation and extra costs while finding out how to fix this toxic sinkhole?

    They really should step up and not drag their feet, for changing the lives of so many and also for the damage to the environment, while finding out how to fix this problem (if they can).

    People can't wait and should not have to wait to get compensation without losing their homes/property, while they are trying to figure this out.

    • eatliesndie eatliesndie

      First priority – get to safety
      next – compensation should be forthcoming

      • WindorSolarPlease

        +100 agree eatliesndie first priority – get to safety..can't stress this enough.

        Compensation for their well being should be forthcoming immediately, so they have an extra roof over their head during this time, who they have totally inconvenience.

  • dial it up

    IMO They need to set up H2S detectors and alarms all around the sinkhole and in every house, and not let people back in if they are suffering the symptoms described. That stuff settles and concentrates in low lying areas, and if they can smell it, at something like 6 to 8 ppm, then they are really close to the lethal concentration, which if I recall is somewhere in the mid teens ppm. It is insane and criminal that residents are not being properly protected and compensated. Just my two bits.

  • timemachine2020 timemachine2020

    THIS POSTING GOES DIRECTLY TO THE RESIDENTS OF BAYOU CORNE – You must leave immediately. You are putting yourself and your familys well bieng at very high risk. The proven facts that are out now and confirmed BY FAR says for you to adhere the MANDATORY IVACCUATION – These orders are not put out lightly! Especially now with the last updated air quality warnings and toxic pathogens coming up from he sinkhole area. You are certain to see death in your family if you do not leave now. Mabey not tomorrow but what if you find out someone close to you is dying of cancer because of the exposure to this enviroment and you had the opportunity to keep that from happening. PLEASE PLEASE LEAVE NOW WITH ALL FAMILY MEMBERS AND ASK YOUR NEIGHBORS TO PLEASE DO THE SAME. IT IS TIME TO LET GO. PLEASE DO NOT LEAVE ANY ANIMALS OR LIVESTOCK BEHIND TO SUFFER. THE POSSIBILITY OF MORE SEVERE CONTAMINATION AND POSSIBLE EXPLOSIONS ARE TO GREAT TO WAIT ANY LONGER. I HOPE THAT RAINBEDEAOUS READS THIS OR GETS WORD OF THIS AS I KNOW SHE LIVES THERE. IF YOU CAN HEAR ME PLEASE AKNOWLEDGE THIS ATTEMPT TO REACH OUT AND LET YOU KNOW THAT IT IS TIME. YOU MUST TAKE YOUR FAMILY AND LEAVE NOW. PLEASE FORWARD THIS TO THE LANDRY FAMILY AND ANYONE ELSE THAT LIVES THERE. GOD BLESS AND WE ARE WITH YOU!!!!!!! YOU WILL HAVE TIME TO GO AFTER WHAT TEXAS BRINE AND THE ONES RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS OUTRAGE HAVE DONE TO YOU IN MONETARY AND PERSONAL ANGUISH DAMAGES LATER. NOT MUCH YOU CAN DO TO THEM IF YOUR NOT AROUND IS THERE?

    here is the TV show for the ones that do not believe.

    The BP oil disaster in the Gulf of Mexico has led to devastation along Louisiana’s coast and in its fishing and tourism industries. But was it deliberate? Jesse Ventura leads his team into the bayou where they investigate claims of a plot to depopulate Louisiana and turn it into America’s refinery. At the core: the government’s alleged secret, multi-billion dollar depopulation program that began in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina and was kicked into Phase Two with the oil rig blast.

      nope… this stuff is just paranoia on a grand scale.

      wiping out entire states and depopulation are sigh-fi concepts.

      i genuinely hold a little more belief that there are no people that are so absolutely stupid and selfish.

      while i still agree there are some very stupid and selfish people amongst us, i find it very hard to fathom that the evil geniuses of james bond movies actually exist.

      the suggestion is fascism has utterly taken over the feeble brains of all authorities involved. i can't see it happening.. and if it is.. i will look forward to the day i leave the club called humanity.

      honestly, it can't be that bad. i think some people lose sight of the scale of their implications.

        • richard richard

          thanks Ibuiltthis. as much as there maybe 'documentation', i still find the scale of the concept to be too huge to be 'successful'.

          protests and many obstacles would certainly put such a concept back to bed. in fact, i feel like a a bit of a fool even writing that such 'concepts' could be even considered.

          people will carry on till they're blue in the face on this (and other) theories.. but frankly.. they just don't carry water.

          i'll repeat, the scale of what is being suggested is beyond epic… it could only lead to war if someone tried to enforce such a stunt. it won't happen. it's 'out there'.

          • Ibuiltthis Ibuiltthis

            It's called the United Nations. Really, just peek. It's not a conspiracy, it's not anything new… It's an attempt to get some type of order in this world. It's not all bad, it's not all good. Let me put it this way. It's better for those less fortunate than the ones who reside in the USA, not quiet as good for us. We can agree that the United Nations is a National Government Entity correct?

            • FREEDOMROX

              On this, we will have to agree to disagree. This has been a conspiracy since 1907 and even earlier. A League of Nations was the first failed attempt after WWI was promoted and executed. Since that did not work, WWII had to be initiated, and what do you know, the United Nations was born from the arm of the US.
              A conspiracy is defined as two or more people that conspire to break the law or do harm.

              You face so many conspiracies in a day now, that most do not recognize them anymore. From the grocer and his staff telling you that the veggies are "Naturally Grown and GMO free", when they don't have a clue, since the purchase order did not state anything like that, to the Used Car Dealer, telling his Salesman to lie and do whatever it takes to get that darn clunker out of her, whatever it takes. Otherwise a CarFax wouldn't even be necessary. Our culture thrives off of everyday conspiracies.

          • DUDe DisasterInterpretationDissorder

            Hi Richard ; "protests and many obstacles would certainly put such a concept back to bed."

            Truout the humankind's/Earth history bringing us here by the choices made , i'm sure this attitude was also a very loyal one.
            I remember growing up arguing with adult's about what i saw (from observing the land and forest with innocence) as "the road to hell" and they called it "progress".
            I told them how it would end according to earth/life logic , they said , nonono humans are not that stupid. I replied , history is ONE BIG PROOF of how stupid we exactly are towards life. Silence and a banned subject…
            Imaging going back 50 years and explain what brutal duopoly policestate the us will become whilest the population dreams on , high on materialisme and down on broken individual spirit . Soon to flee from one part of the country to another to outrun its own "bill" You really think anyone will believe you except the heroic "treehuggers" from back in the days? They will say exactly what you are saying , its a defense/denial mechanisme i believe, sry about that .
            Like Maggie says , we all carry the full spectrum of good and evil in our human genes .
            After ww1 and 2 and the stanford experiment , people should not allow themselves to forget that, ever .
            Take care !

            • DUDe DisasterInterpretationDissorder

              Ps , i'm not saying anyone is right or wrong in all this , i don't have made up my mind yet , just saying that the notion "nonsense , people are not evil enough to do THAT " is an unusually weak argument for YOU , in the 21 century 😉

              • richard richard

                thank DID for the reply. Yes, I have exposed some naivety there haven't I. I do generally expect protests from the people can have some sway.. hey, that's one reason why i do partake.

                and your prehistory predictions for the future are all valid, no doubt.

                The big flaw I'm showing to cover here is that AN ENTIRE state cannot, will not ever, be handed over to fascism. It's just to large a deal.

                A town, a few counties maybe… but an entire state.. nah.. can't happen. Far too lives and flora and fauna involved.

                And the side issue of depop keeps showing itself, and again I find this topic another waste of time. So it's those two things I'm arguing about here.

                Although, fascism and industrial destruction, along with people protesting, are realities 😉

                • DUDe DisasterInterpretationDissorder

                  You'r welcome richard .

                  Humans , fauna and flora , have a say/meaning only when the other options to make money for the big shots are not exhausted/not wanted .

                  The way i see it , the majority lost their capability to understand , sense a strong disagreement and unite and act/protest upon till the danger in the decision making chain is succesfully dissarmed . Most of them are just small copy's of the roman empire before its fall by decadence.
                  Thats why it is all so easy to globally censor/lie on a war-criminal level without fear for justice etc.

                  And…never say never… It would be wrong to think because our leaders are troglodytes in the life supporting logic regard , that they have no
                  creativity in manipulating the caddle to the point where they want them to be for their own agenda.

                  Ps, thx for being an active activist 🙂

      • Richard, you have to put it into time perspective in that politics has no moral consciousness. In other words, politics just don't care and whether politicians care falls on the individual & their character makeup. Secondly, time is the politician's weapon something the non-profit taught me as how can something be so good, but yet so lagging in productivity if politics wasn't getting in the way. Add that to human nature to want to control & then compound in the factor that govs whether small/local or large/federal, & not to mention the middle guys all want to control something in a political way. Gaming, businesses & what types & where, smoking laws, drugs as to what is legal & not, to school system, to safety net services, healthcare, private sector, banks, mortgages, to credit & the cost of living…it's all social engineering to some degree. So, why not plotting out a long term plan to redevelop a State to suite the needs of the ruling elite as in this case for big oil refinery for they are doing it for us, as they represent the little people..

        Who cares in the grand scheme of things when the norm today is to destroy lives & whole families/communities to get to that bottom buck? Politicians work on at level & it can get pretty low sometimes, but what makes it worse is they also know time is the weapon, & therefore the less you can recuperate the better it is for them. Stimulates the economy you know.

        Haven't a clue, but if so, then remember he hit his head many ties against a turn buckle and chairs, and split his own head open with a razor blade many times. Irregardless, none can say a thing about JV, when it comes to Susan Rees, as she states it clearly on camera. I don't think much of Jessie either, but sometimes… he gets info, even in spite of Alex Jones.

        That was sort of crossing my mind. But people can still learn in the university of life, so I can't dig at him just for that.

        But the stories, now that's another matter.

      • Sickputer

        Jesse graduated from high school in 1969, was in the Navy for 6 years as an underwater demolitions diver, and in the 1970s attended a community college. I don't question his intelligence, but he does promote conspiracy theories I don't believe. But if I were in an alley fight I'd sure like to have him covering my back. *;-)


      Again, and after sunset, so IP can't say it is the Sun this time. That is rock movement and not fluids. Highly localized, and right next to the sinkhole. Just a matter of time.

        The sun??? Please…. There are times when I look at it, you can almost see the movement, because the jolts on the charts are minutes or seconds apart. They may not be as large as the one right next to the sink hole, but they coordinate at times to something happening. The Sun is so powerful, I wonder how it makes our Helicorder display these things and not the other one in AR???

          You misunderstand. I agree with IP on this, but it is night now, and if readings are showing uo, then bad mojo for the cavern. It still has a ways to go before it clears the throat, and this may be the beginning of it. There is a huge void that if filling with oil and gas pressures beneath it, then it is strictly geological, not EU related, altho' all things are EU related, but I think you understand.
          Most won't.

    Some interesting data as to earthquakes and a earthquake news web site that has videos on most earthquakes

    Texas Brine’s Cranch said there was a “serious discussion” about storing the NORM in the cavern, but that never happened. Instead, he said, the company left the material near the wellhead and above ground, as allowed by state law. Cranch said NORM has a “low level” of radiation and a “low half-life.” […]

    So they just left nuclear waste sitting around on the ground, waiting to figure out what to do with it since ?

    • richard richard

      exactly irhologram, nukes leaking every where, every on open ground, is the new NORM.

      these people are criminal. and the EPA (paid by peoples taxes) is onside with the exploiters.


      Actually, if you look at the actual documents at

      that proves DNR gave Texas Brine permission to not only put TENORM back in at NPVL, but also at Chacahoula salt dome, where TB owns three caverns as well.

      I can't say what they actually did, but I know what they asked for and what LDNR gave them permission to do. Remember when taken out of the ground and lumped all together NORM becomes TENORM.
