These are parts of several strategic petroleum reserves along the gulf coast. Most of the largest ones are own by the goverment. http://www.fossil.energy.gov/programs/re...ites.html.
These are the ones they admit to. Fuel such as butane, crude oil , etc. are pumped into them for storage and then moved to another till it is processed. Sometimes it's just moved from one to another just to keep our reserves safe. Some of the sink holes or own by companies but are use by the goverment. My question then would be who do we go after to change this?

RE: Assumption Sinkhole
Your article doesn't mention sinkholes, it talks about the caverns.


Sinkhole cavern owner billed $321,000
October 26, 2012

Houston-based Texas Brine Co. has been asked to reimburse the Assumption Parish for about $321,000 in expenses so far in its response to a sinkhole the state says has been caused by the company's failed salt cavern.

Assumption Parish officials have asked the chemical company Texas Brine for $321,000 to pay for its expenses to manage the Bayou Corne emergency situation. The state is blaming Texas Brine for all of the disaster that has been ongoing for over four months

Texas Brine owns two caverns in Napoleonville Salt Dome, one of which has been breached. Tuesday night, officials announced that now, the edge of the salt dome itself has collapsed and there are no immediate real solutions to halt the continuing and unprecedented disaster.

The salt domes are used to store everything from crude oil to oil field waste. The oil is pumped into the salt caverns and removed when needed. To store oil first they pump water into them to dissolve the salt in the dome or cavern creating a hole in the earth to which oil is then pumped in and stored for later refining.

Why not go after the company who owns it. We did for the gulf spill. I shouted for heads to roll. Why not go after the goverment they are responsible also. We should just tell the people who live next to this thing oh well buy solar panels.

Did you read the article I posted which said "Houston-based Texas Brine Co. has been asked to reimburse the Assumption Parish for about $321,000 in expenses so far in its response to a sinkhole the state says has been caused by the company's failed salt cavern."??

They are going after the company who owns it. And just why is the federal government responsible for Texas Brine? The people who live near will have to fight it out with the oil dependent Lousiana government and the Texas co that OWNS the cavern.

Blame the damned oil co's who think they can put pipelines wherever they want. And for cryin out loud don't post anymore crap that says "She should have been allowed to shoot the driver. It’s HER land, she owns it – no private property or government should have the right to repossess it or alter it without her explicit permission." Idiots abound on the web and they don't impress me one bit with their shoot-em-up BS.

This process is encouraged by the goverment. Built for them. Used by them. They are using the earth as a toxic storage tank. These things wouldn't exist if it wasn't a demand for them. The demand is from the goverment. Some of this fuel was just tapped to help with Sandy. I will look for the link.

Who ordered this? Oh yeah, Bush. You cannot just make a random "blame the government" statement without looking at the entire history of a situation. That's what is wrong wtih your state and all the red states. You don't differentiate who demands what, when and where. Ask any Democrat in a blue state about Mary Landrieu and you won't get praise just becaue she's a Democrat. Your STATE is to blame because you won't change anything to make drilling or transportation of oil safer. Until all of you can change YOUR minds, you have no right bitching and whining about the consequences your DEMANDS created.

The federal government didn't start using those caverns until the 70s when we had the big gas crunch. They existed long before then. The demand for them isn't only from the government...see Texas Brine. And good for PBO taking reserves to send to the hurricane destroyed states!!!

You are the most anti-government Democrat I've ever seen. I'd think after the Macondo blowout you'd realize the federal government saved Louisiana's ass and be grateful for big favors. Without President Obama demanding the money BP would have scooted away and spent years in court before anybody got a dime. You come across as a 'small government' republican.

Never blamed Obama so please don't make it into something that's its not. These things have been used even before Obama and Bush. Even with this happening no one is changing a thing about it. No head lines demanding change for any news source or anyone else. Coming after me for what my state does it just dumb. I'm sure I can find some crazy things your state does and should I blame you or attack you for your state policies. I am here saying these things are wrong no matter who is in my state offices or in the White House. I will not turn a blinds eye to such thing because I voted for the guy. Believe it or not there are some democrats in the red states. There are democrats working in the oil field also if you want to live down here you don't have many options.

It's YOUR FRIGGIN' STATE! Do you people take responsibility for anything?? I saw how Democrats in your state responded after the BP Oil Spill. You wanted to keep doing what you've always done. WE don't have drilling off of our coast. We said NO. We're likely not to even let a train carry coal through the state, let alone put in a coal power plant. WE make the choices WE live with. You can do the same, but you'd rather blame "the gubmint" instead of your damn selves. CHANGE, it starts with YOU.

My son-in-law was from Louisiana and worked on the offshore rigs until a poorly sealed well head blew mud into his eye and he lost sight in it.

It appears you are here to condemn the US government and the POTUS. I'm done with this latest attempt. By the way, my state is Illinois.....we have plenty of skeletons. And running around screaming for somebody to do something isn't one of them.

Don't mean to but I do believe in the goverment as a tool to help people. The only tool that can truly help people. I believe in goverment but not politician. I want every politician to be held accountable no matter what party. I'm a democrat for the people. I think big corp has gotten their hands into OUR goverment and Large banks for that matter. When I see Wall Street protesters just sitting arms locked not hurting anyone get peppered sprayed in the face for nothing I don't blame Obama but the system. But if these this are brought to light and then any politician turns their back on things like this then I blame the politician. Every time I watch that video my blood boils. The police officer wasn't even slapped on the wrist. Mad

Then don't use oil from my friggin state. Go ahead protest My State. I don get a chance to vote on this. There's not even a politician here fighting to change it that I could vote for here. You tell me how should I take responsibility for these sink hole and drilling besides voting blue?

"There's not even a politician here fighting to change it that I could vote for here."

Precisely. And how is that the fault of the rest of the country? How is that the fault of Washington DC? You've got exactly what your state wants. Any time the rest of us try to do anything about it, we're the interfering liberal "big government" that you blame everything on, no matter which way it goes.

You want to fix your state? Here's a start, but fix yourselves first, because DC isn't going to be able to change anything for you.

This is exactly what I'm doing. Trying to change this. Big oil is also to blame I thought I stated that but you questioned why I was saying it was the goverment fault also. I just stated who uses these things. Nothing more. If you would have questioned why I thought big oil was at fault I would have stated that too. I never blamed Obama or Bush for that matter because I know these things be here and were used long before the Bush thing and Bush Thing 2. I never stated anything that wasn't fact. I am sure no one has ever ask Obama where we should store to oil. He has more important things to deal with. Sorry to hear about the eye and thanks to Obama safety and procedures have came a long way. Every equipment now has to checked and certified before it can even touch a platform. He has brought regulations that will save lives and the environment that they would have never opposed upon themselves.

Even with this happening no one is changing a thing about it. No head lines demanding change for any news source or anyone else. Coming after me for what my state does it just dumb. I'm sure I can find some crazy things your state does and should I blame you or attack you for your state policies. I am here saying these things are wrong no matter who is in my state offices or in the White House. I will not turn a blinds eye to such thing because I voted for the guy. Believe it or not there are some democrats in the red states. There are democrats working in the oil field also if you want to live down here you don't have many options.

My son-in-law was from Louisiana and worked on the offshore rigs until a poorly sealed well head blew mud into his eye and he lost sight in it.

It appears you are here to condemn the US government and the POTUS. I'm done with this latest attempt. By the way, my state is Illinois.....we have plenty of skeletons. And running around screaming for somebody to do something isn't one of them.

Jaxx I would be saying the same thing if there was a republican in the White House. I don't seem to have the ability of blind faith in anything or anyone but my family and even they let me down at times as I'm sure I do also.

"There's not even a politician here fighting to change it that I could vote for here."

Precisely. And how is that the fault of the rest of the country? How is that the fault of Washington DC? You've got exactly what your state wants. Any time the rest of us try to do anything about it, we're the interfering liberal "big government" that you blame everything on, no matter which way it goes.

You want to fix your state? Here's a start, but fix yourselves first, because DC isn't going to be able to change anything for you.

Really think about what you just said. The government can't help help me. I didn't create the the need for oil. Obama said himself that it is important that we lessen the demand on foreign oil with intel solar, wind, and oil. I don't like the fact we need oil but I'm not dumb either. I know their is no way around it a this time. It needs to be done cleaner and with less of a foot print. Our production of oil is higher now then ever before. I'm told this is important to the security of our nation. Now if this is so who is going to do so? This is a federal policy to store the oil this way and I'm wrong for saying the federal government should change this behavior. There are many things I would love to see changed here but the sinkhole was the topic. I said the big oil should stop this also because they use these also. Look you should ban salt it's their domes and land. Lets see your wonderful state move forward without salt. They are also destroying the land by leasing this to the oil giants and the government. You might drill but your state sure does use these resources. Sodium is in everything from toothpaste to your neighbors swimming pools. Fight big salt and save the earth. Let your wonderful state start first.
