Title: Bayou Corne/Assumption Parish Resident Meeting
Author: rainbeaudais
Date: Nov 13, 2012

At 1:22:45 in

Resident: Can I ask you a question why it took so long [to start flaring gas]?

Geologist Gary Hecox: We had to figure out the problem with our wells, first of all.

And then in all honesty we had problems getting contractors who would come down here and work on the wells.

Texas Brine Press Release, Nov. 19, 2012 (h/t Louisiana Sinkhole Bugle):

  • The Observation Well [...] will remain shut in until Monday, November 26. [...]
  • Due to limited contractor availability given the holiday, the work to remove the water in the casing [of the shallow aquifer Relief Well #1] that is apparently impeding gas flow will not begin until Monday, November 26.

      Exactly! What can they do? Make sure the residents are relocated and safe. I think they are way past the "fix-it" stage.

      They can seal the well heads and bore holes to stop the H2S release, clean fill the sink hole and collapse the salt dome to stop the continual erosion. This would put a stop to the petroleum production and the companies would loose a crap load of money though so it's not going to happen. They aren't going to do anything but "monitor" the situation until either the first houses fall into the sink hole or something major happens. The corporate entities don't care about the surrounding environment until they profit enough off their production that the clean-up doesn't put them in the red.

    I bet the contractors know that something is wrong — and they are probably too afraid to get involved or work the situation. They don't want to die. No one knows what the heck is going on — "in all honesty." :)

  • In all honesty I don't know why they wouldn't want to prop up the side of the salt dome you know, toss in a few boulders to give the dome a structure to rebuild itself around. Otherwise a sudden collapse of the existing structure, or a surge of energy is just going to fracture & dice & splice the problem even more. It's like a free fall every time something slips (trees, mud) into the sinkhole but again, no bones (rocks) to the meat (silt) of the problem.

    Also plan a attack of offense by redirecting the water flow (the accumulation of water) to suit where the moat should be.

    If these guys can drill into salt domes & make caverns to store orange juice, then they can build in a moat to take control of the direction this situation may spread. Also, bring in some canaries(in cages) & set up a bird watching protocol as a quick way to monitor gas emissions, & probably cheaper to install that conventional monitor that they are working on now.

    It's straight forward. Create a support system for existing structure to collapse into in order to provide an avenue to self-wedge internal repair. Remove metallic elements from stone like a prescription from a doctor. Treat the symptom but also the illness.

    2 is get creative with moat building by understanding it's through digging or clear cutting that develops the path, or rather plan of attack.

    3. Seems this position is a stand alone, let's see what happens which I think is what is going on now outside of monitoring…

      I was unnerved once I hit the word *toss*! :)


      Report comment

      • I know "toss" wasn't the right word to say but neither was throw or drop, as I was looking for an analogy/alternative word to break the fall of depositing boulders into a pit of water & mud.

        I would think a helicopter would be needed to carry the boulders to the center of the sinkhole to drop (but not at high altitude to cause extreme rippling & splashing of the water) & again that's why I chose the word toss. Maybe 'rolling in' boulders 1 at a time from a designated point could be 1 idea but it really depends on where the workers would want them to accumulate over time. A test run might be needed to gestimate the length of time, distance & direct a boulder would travel once deposited into or around the edge of the sink hole.

      I was watching a YouTube Video, and it stated that the salt dome cavern was 2.5 times the height of the Empire State Building. If that's true thats a sh*tload of bolders.

      • JHewes, no kidding & it all seems science fiction @ this point but then we're going into new territory that people say they have never been in.

        Consequently, for those in the science field/geologists/engineers & agriculture if this application of thought (tossing in stone/boulders) turns out to have some creditable possibility to begin plugging up the breech while at the same time, provide a underground structure for support for the dome, then it should be explored on paper with theory & then applied in practice at some point beginning @ 1 point whether it is in the center of the sinkhole or on the outer edge.

        It's a 2 fold attack as don't forget the directional pull.

          • JHewes, so many people are living on the edge these days for various reason & instead of allowing that negative energy to consume us into a place of no hope, we need to revert it back into a fight for survival because then…your instincts to not quit will kick in via rejuvenating your internal energy to make it no matter what.

            Biggest fear in life is fear itself (not my quote) but taking the stance from where I stand in it, if I would have given into fear I couldn't possibly provide hope today.

            Stay Strong.

            People have choices & considering the situation, I would think that everyone at least who lives in the area of Assumption Parish knows about this web-site, & are trying to keep themselves inform right along with people like myself.

            So what I'm saying, they, the residents don't need permission to leave & if they feel threaten then they must make plans to prepare to leave. As another suggested on this site, "go to a church". Just show up @ the door & claim refugee status under the safe haven statue act. Don't leave to others what you can do for yourself if you feel strongly enough about that decision. I know it's hard to make tough decisions, struggle with that myself, but counsel yourselves/the community together as it will help.

                    • Oh Lordy, that is so close & when I say that my family got sick from Japans radiation back in April of 2011, we did. 9 people in the house @ that time & everyone had 1 to several symptoms of radiation poisoning. I even had a bleeding nose & I never get that, plus 1 of younger daughters had a bleeding nose as well. Skin rashes, sleepiness for weeks, loss of appetite, disorientation in terms of not having calm nerves, upset stomach with loss of body fluids (dehydration – dry skin, dry lips, parched mouth & just general listlessness. Was sick for almost 1 month.

                      So, if your water begins to taste like heavy metals take that as a sign & try to stay out of the rain.

                    • Hewes, not to fear monger but if I was that close to a nuclear reactor never mind 2 of them in 2 different locations, my plan for my family in light of what I know now, would be to get out & as far away from them if they blow.

                      Save your money & just make plans to relocate quickly, while you yourself may have to be a warrior to go back in to salvage some of your belongings. In other words, if I had to I would send my family away but would stay behind to pack up what I could to ship it out of province. That's the only way to protect your family from high concentrations of radiation, & unfortunately some of us are going to die in the process.

                      So take my advice, cut to the chase & don't fool yourself by thinking duct taping basement windows to hide out for 1 month is the solution, as that is only false propaganda to give you & your family a false sense of security. Invest your money into travel plans & be prepared to die so your family may live.

                    It's like you have to have thousands of dollars to invest into corporate accidents, add in another few thousands of $'s to evacuate your family away from further corporate accidents, while loosing almost if not everything in the end when you get to the other side when there is really no place to run.

                    Maybe this is a new way politicians have decide to social engineer a sustainable economy (at least temporarily)…keep the public buying/consuming products so that we can THINK we can survive.

      We may not be able to save the world from Fuku-D.

      you can buy merchandise from these people as well. I've picked up some good clothing from sea sheperd.

      so everybody, please put some money into taking care of the animals, because there's probably not a whole lot more that can be done, 'cept go and party.

      • Richard, I've invested 10's of thousands of dollars (round it off to about 40 grand over a 13 year period) into a fledgling non-profit that I founded back in 1999 to 2001. End result, the non-profit represents billions of $'s long term that will help millions of people, but it's just a matter of how we connect the dots to make it work for "us" the people, as the non-profit operates under a international trademark name.

        Obviously, I bit off more than I can chew right now but that doesn't remove the fact that this situation doesn't exist & will go far beyond me as a founder to a trend setting paradigm shift.

        I'm just waiting on some basic contract to be drafted up, & then I'll pull myself up by my boots straps & will write those cover letters asking for help, & will include a envelope for the Sea Shepherds to review for themselves in the event they may choose to become a catalyst to move this movement forward.

      • Richard, I'm working on web-pages right now flipping from 1 to the other & while I do this, I'm going to add in a page for the;

        1 Million Flash Movement Telethon as a subsidiary fund raiser to the larger project I'm working on now.

        I'll begin building in the framework so that hopefully over the next year action can be put to words.

        It's better for me to plan this now, add in the link under construction & then once I'm pretty much done with the other stuff I'm working on, we can pick up on this idea very quickly if we want.

        Ultimate goal is a cash infusion into Assumption Parish of at least 50 million dollars straight up cash, dollar for dollar.

        I'll post the link once I make it.

      • Don't know if you will make it back to this thread but have started to add in the link for the fund raiser called, "1 Million Flash Movement".

        However, someone has hacked into my computer & it could be someone from here (you know, pass those links around with spider crawlers or what ever people do to hack into PC's). Needless to say, it reminds me of when I was stalked in the courtyard with the kids as this crazy lady use to call the cops on me if she couldn't piss me off enough to make me fight. Jealous bytch all she wanted was for the children to be bored & miserable, while she'd pit 1 kid against another. I survived those days & it sure taught me a lot about racism, bigotry, corporate neglect, & how 1 negative person can influence a whole crowd to be submissive to bullying.

        At any rate, I could ask my service provide about this but if this person who hacked into my computer is intent on destroying the non-profit, they will do everything in their power to accomplish that goal.

        If you're interested I've begun adding in this fund raiser so keep that in mind because maybe 1 day it just might happen.

      • You know, 13 years is a long time to be working on 1 project (non-profit) while the world whizzes by on profit. Got criticized for talking about it but then got criticized for not, as how would people know? Canadians hate'n on Malcolm X, Americans & even on themselves, while Americans have just let it all slide to only cross over @ the border with Occupy Wall Street, which happened to convince some Canadians we weren't that anymore & got booed for sticking up for my country as a sovereign nation that could make a difference.

        End of the day, I stuck it out for 13 years & held true to the principles I came out with in the beginning days of building a Foundation. I was grateful to have a home, a family & freedom.

        So, as I listen to CNN talk about corrupt charities & how it related to last years reports, I can't help but wonder why the American people wouldn't want to try something else.

        Occupy Wall Street was used to bring the people together but now some individuals in individual States are trying to separate from the USA, as if that will solve problems. That's like Quebec not wanting to be a part of Canada??

  • I could write Billy in Plaquemines Parish for a second time, but only ask him to open a Trust Account so you, others & I can make a donation as a solution to begin solving this crisis. Clearly, it's a crisis that if left to long without the support of surrounding areas/communities (meaning federal gov, state gov & the public) it would be impossible for Assumption Parish to solve on it's own in a fiscal sense. Cut to the chase, it's an expensive proposition either way & 1 that a small town can't afford to pay on it's own.

    Problem is, Billy isn't in the business of opening Trust Accounts for fund raisers never mind that originated from B.C., Canada. However, nobody can ever say "it" (the Trust Account) was not done @ arms length when it happens.

      If the federal government would declare it a disaster area it would free up federal monies to assist. I don't think money is the problem anyway.

      Some people need to be made to speak up and soon about what they know starting with the company's own geologist. Probably the only way to make them speak quickly is to wave liability to the company that is holding this guy hostage under his contract and non-disclosure agreement. I don't see that happening.

      Unfortunately, this problem is going to have to get much worse before the federal government takes over. As unfortunate as this is for those under evacuation orders by comparison to other disasters the number of people under evacuation is small for a federal disaster.

  • enoughalready45, I know it's heart wrenching to hear about the people out of their homes in Assumption Parish in comparison to other disasters happening right now in the United States, & I understand what you're saying about liability to talk & even about the money being there if the will was. However, I really don't think this is just a Texas Brine problem rather than a geological one in itself regarding a changing/living planet. That's why I suggest the experts become "Doctors in nature" while applying proven physics & chemistry compositions to begin patching up the wound so it can heal in geological terms.

    Yet, at the bottom of the food chain is the wildlife & domestic animals so in reality they will be left behind as this thing progresses, but by helping them we also help ourselves.

      With all due respect, you're making the same mistake that most others do, in thinking that a nation's people are in the driver's seat. They (we) aren't.

Go onto the streets of any control throughout this planet and talk with just about anyone (that's not on the government teat) and you'll find not only great dissatisfaction but surprising consensus on the issues that affect us all. How do I know this? Spend more time on the web talking with others (like you) and you'll have the answer. Truth is, we all one.

          no need to repost responses NNU. It clutters your responses and risks missing your point(s). Moving on…

          I agree that we're being snookered by the Left/Right paradigm. I don't buy into it. I find that all political philosophies are predicated on some truth; even the most unsavory of them. I choose to draw on the better points and only integrate that which agrees with the others. When I encounter someone who goes with exclusive cannon, I conclude they're victims of myopic propagandist. Thankfully, such ideologues are losing their import in today's intellectual environment.

          This thread was predicated on your inference that the people of a nation are responsible for the policies of that nation's representatives. It's counterproductive blaming victims of a criminal enterprise. IFact is, long before 311, many Japanese have (for historical reasons) been active in the anti-nuclear movement. Unfortunately for them, being a nation that's long been under post-war occupation of the United State military has not been conducive to greater consensus against nuclear-power technologies. I'd suggest integrating more history into your global perspective. Doing otherwise undermines your good nature.

          And thinking that humans use only ten-percent of their "brain capacity" is insular. Such research was circulated by those who'd like us to think we're surrounded by cretins…

          • OK, I can see you've upped the bar & are now using maybe 12% of your brain. (lol)

            Japan isn't so innocent go get off the bandwagon with your victim feeling sorry for the victim bullcrap.

              I can go back several thousand years NNU to find examples of inhumanity. I can also find examples of criminal behavior being perpetrated by almost every modern government around the world today. The Japanese people (not unlike the German citizenry under the National Socialist and the Israelis citizenry of today) were not complicit in the development of their respective government's racist policies. I don't know where you're transmitting from, but I can assure you, my own government (here in the United States) has perpetrated innumerable crimes against this nation's indigenous populace as well as foreign peoples.

              When the citizenry is inundated with hateful propaganda, they're likely to participate in those crimes. (The history of the Hutu/Tutsi conflict is a classic example of race-based propaganda.) By-and-large, the people of a nation do not determine such policies.

              We are all victims of an evolving criminal enterprise that now spans the globe. When we learn how this system is used to exploit our fellow humans, only then will we move forward. I'm all about progress, equity and protection. No double standards…

              • LOL, now you're really starting to get to me. Nice to know you're a stand up kinda person & people want to call me a "socialist" partly because I'm Canadian up in the Great White North, & partly because of the founding principles I represent through myself & the non-profit I work on.

                Notice, I have mention millions of people but put no reference to whom, what ethnic group, age, creed &/or gender.

                So, why not let us agree to disagree like the old days in message board talk, & try to move forward.

                You can have the last word but doesn't mean you won the battle or the war.

                  I know you're an honorable person NNU, who doubtless spoke from a sense of rage at the boundless stupidity we're now witnessing. My only concern is that we not fall prey to victimizing a people who are already on their knees. And believe me, there's nothing you or I could illuminate that the Japanese aren't already reflecting on. It's equally important that we hold ourselves, as well as each other, to a standard that we'd expect from those on high.

                  I do enjoy your efforts out here and wish you the best in your ventures…ciao…

                  • Japan is about 145,000 sq miles (slightly smaller than Montana @ 147,000 sq miles) with a population of about 127 million people. Japan had & still has 50 (FIFTY) Nuclear Reactors

                    While BC Canada is 944,735 sq miles with a population of about 4.5 million people with 5% being of First Nations decent.

                    We have no (NO) Nuclear Reactors.

                    Say what you want, it doesn't matter.

                  • I guess I'm not done with this nonsense yet.. as I forgot to mention that my provincial & federal gov have enable Japan to be who they are today, as our politicians supply Uranium to the world market.

                    Personaly, there aren't to many politicians whether MLA's or MP's that I like & that's because, they expect me to rally a nation before they jump on the bandwagon to do their jobs in relation to, implementing a universal school meal program from West Coast to East among filling in the blanks along the way. All this Uranium mining doesn't benefit the BC public anymore than the Keystone pipeline will benefit the Alberta public or British Colombians once they run the line.

                    However, 127 million people all crammed together on 1 small Island known for earthquakes, you'd think their first priority long ago would have been birth control.

                  • "No" not being sneaky here but rather bothered by the numbers.

                    Japan – population – 127 million people

                    Canada – population – 35 million people

                    USA (for good measure) – Population – 312 million people

                    Japan ranked third on the global economy

                    Here's a link I don't profess to understand everything,

                    with the USA being first & China second.

                    Canada doesn't even make it on the list even in 8 years from now.

                    127 million people with 50 reactors is more than a conspiracy to not fall for the "we are the victims to our own demise". Granted 10,000 perhaps a million people rally against nuclear power in that country, but out of 127 persons as the economy booms ahead without noticing really does tell what is on those peoples minds.

                    That's the part that bugs me, I'm just suppose to support their bad habit to over consume energy, & if need be give up my life & my children's lives just so that the Japanese can live theirs. Doesn't matter if there is an accident like Fukushima just as long as they can boogie.

                    Same could be said about Americans as well if that Reactor blows up in the Oregon area, don't think it's to far from me either.

                    So, would you weigh that out as fair game with the odds being in favor of the Japanese considering land sq footage, population to the USA??

                  • & NOW…they are talking about securing Nuclear Weapons. Watch & see, they will try to turn it out as another learning exercise on their long list of radiation gimmicks of "how to" demonstrations, with a few company advertisements that when I think about, I don't even like that product maker because their electronic connecting parts are crap. So, why try & sell me something that I don't even like, & then try & kill me off while your doing it?

                    It's pathetic in a very rudimentary way.

  • as undercover government culprits plot to depopulate parts of the planet whether for profit or future profit in a time of 'war', where politics is being used against us little people who we ourselves, are just as dumb as the general over all population of Japanese individuals. "I think I got it"
