Louisiana Sinkhole Swallows Access Ramp
Louisiana’s s mega sinkhole has swallowed the access ramp to a well pad and more trees on Thursday morning, which caused officials in the area to move it up to a Code 2 alert and then pull out many of the workers on the site. Many Assumption Parish leaders said that seismic monitors have picked up fluid and gas moving beneath the surface.
The Department of Natural Resources said in its inspection report about the latest gulping down of Cajun land between Bayou Corne and Grand Bayou:
Remarks regarding the #3 Well Pad on the eastern edge of the sinkhole according to Bret Barras: “the Slough Off looks to be 60′ in depth and 90′ in length along the Northwest to Northeast side of the Oxy #3 Well Pad. The work pad extension where the excavator worked from to remove sink hole debris is completely gone. The green 8″ pipe marker at the ginning of the work pad is gone. –www.examiner.com
As the sinkhole area continues to be affected by seismic activity, the size of the sinkhole has only increased as of late.
