“Parish officials said hydrocarbons and debris bubbled up to the surface and caused major cracks in a well pad”
WBRZ: There’s heightened anxiety tonight around the sinkhole around Bayou Corne […]
Officials there say they noticed something alarming happening on one of the well pads forcing them to shut down all activity there.
John Boudreaux, Assumption OEP Director: There is additional cracking that has occurred on well pad 3, where there’s cracks that have developed on that pad. They are an inch wide and a ruler goes down 14 inches. It seems that that land is sloughing in towards the sinkhole.
