Mysterious bubbles in Bayou Corne (Louisiana)

ASSUMPTION PARISH, LA (WAFB) - Mysterious bubbles are rising up out of an Assumption Parish bayou. Officials are trying to figure what's causing them.

Take a ride down Bayou Corne, and there are bubbles of all sizes along the waterway.

"We have reported on May 30th a pipeline leak, which started us coming out and investigating a bubbling in Bayou Corne," said Assumption Parish Homeland Security Director John Boudreaux.

Since then though, pipeline officials have not ruled that out just yet, but said it's unlikely. So now, investigators are going through the process of elimination.

By coincidence, since the bubbling began, many in Assumption Parish are worried

"Our houses shifting and cracks in our sheet rock and our foundation," said Jason Hugh.

Yeah I thought it to not that unusual until I read where they are reporting ground shifting as well.

Lake Peigneur is one of the most awesome man made disasters I ever had the misfortune of not seeing in person.

Thanks! Not sure what to make of it, especially if foundations are cracking!

I've been in the gulf and seen areas of escaping gas large enough to make you steer the boat around them. Most I think were leaking pipelines.

Got to wonder if this is something else due to the folks in that area long since used to leaking pipelines.

Hmmmm, could be much more serious than a pipeline leaking from the info at the link. That area contains many salt domes and if one is leaking and water intruding, the water will dissolve the salt and things will worsen.

Many years ago, an oil well crew drilled into a salt mine not too far from that area. The working salt mine was hundreds and hundreds of feet below the surface. When the drill penetrated the cavern, the workers had to hurriedly abandon the mine. Water dissolved the salt in the borehole and it enlarged enough that the bayou drained into the underground cavern and even sucked in large floating barges.

I wouldn't want to be navigating in Bayou Corne if that started happening.

You see some areas in the bayous and marsh in south Louisiana with gas bubbling, no where near pipelines.
Just what we call *surface gas*.
Natural gas pockets 100 feet or less bubbling up.
Every now and then a well spudding in their surface casing will hit one of these surface pockets, causes some excitement of the bad kind, on the rig.

Yeah, that’s why at first glance on this article I paid it no mind but...

The ground movement and of course the fact that they ruled out swamp gas and or methane, well, it kinda perked my interest.

I will have to read up more on the salt mines!

Yeah, the ground movement and tremors mentioned, is strange. There are also petroleum storage caverns in that area made from salt domes. Some may be used for NG as are being constructed now in the Southwestern part of the state.

I live about 25 miles southwest from Bayou Corne.
This whole area has been nearly totally mapped by 3-D seismic over the last couple of years (Oilfield exploration).
They should have an idea of the location of every salt dome and its' depth.
Might help them determine if it's more than just surface gas at play.

I'm with you brother! ;) I'm hoping the pressure behind the Horizon GOM blowout doesn't find another route to the surface. The deep strata formations in our area all slope downward toward the gulf.

Have you been following the latest on El Hierro? Those folks better get the hell off that island while the getting is good!

Just searching FR to see what threads have been started about Bayou Corne. Been reading some interesting stuff about what one researcher has been uncovering. You can start with this thread here:

This guy has really done some digging.
