Excerpts from recent Texas Brine Company, LLC UPDATES on sinkhole in Assumption Parish, LA:

December 18, 2012

A wireline measuring device found a narrow opening near the center that descended to 410 feet [and] is the most probable source of the bubbling that continues in the center of the sinkhole surface

December 19, 2012

The light bubbling that continues in the center of the sinkhole is delivering an emulsified liquid hydrocarbon material to the surface

December 20, 2012

Light bubbling continues to be observed in the center of the sinkhole. The emulsified hydrocarbon that is rising to the surface with the bubbling has been contained

December 21, 2012

The light bubbling that has been observed in the center of the sinkhole has diminished significantly [See the supposedly 'diminished' bubbles from the December 21 flyover here]

December 22, 2012

Very light bubbling was still observed in the center of the sinkhole. [...] After today, no further clean-up activity is scheduled until Wednesday, December 26
