[...] New data shows natural gas much closer to the Bayou Corne community of Assumption Parish than previously detected. [...]
Shallow-depth wells near the community are now indicating natural gas pressure 20 to 40 feet beneath the surface.
That’s much shallower than previously reported.
Officials want to test for gas accumulation inside every structure built directly on the ground.
