Earthquake Awareness: Caribbean Earthquake Swarms, New Orleans and the Michoud Fault

Update: 8/13/11 - the swarms continue in the Caribbean. Blessings to all who are living in these areas of tetonic movement.

Dr. Janet Starr Hull: The Earth Expansion Theory in the Gulf of Mexico

The Gulf of Mexico is heating up due to a rise in magma flow convecting (running like a conveyor belt) under the Gulf floor. This is the Earth Expansion Theory, where the Earth heats up, filling the salt domes with tar (magma melting oil and creating tar), and pushing the ocean floor up. The tar bubbles as it heats up, and it outgases.”

This expansion lifts the Gulf floor, which displaces the water and floods the coastal areas, and also causes movement along the bordering plate boundaries and fracture zones. Texas is now having more earthquakes everyday, including the 3.0 west of Waxahachie a few days ago along the Balcones. The Llano Uplift will respond, as well as the New Madrid.
 
“This is the Earth Expansion Theory, with a flow of rising magma under the Gulf floor.”


"In Louisiana, prolific oil and gas reservoirs are found in porous sands which drape over and on the sides of salt domes. Nearly every Louisiana salt dome is crested with oil and gas. The St. Gabriel Field is a prime example and has produced the equivalent of fifty million barrels of oil.

The sedimentary layers above and on the sides of a salt dome are usually broken up by disruptions called faults. These faults separate the structure into blocks. These fault blocks are in effect separate containers or reservoirs.There are still numerous undrilled fault blocks in this Field. Within the last few years a new tool, called 3D seismic, has been developed that pinpoints these fault blocks with extreme accuracy".

A recent investigation located more than 27,000 abandoned wells in the area, about 600 of them belong to British Petroleum. Many of the wells have gone without inspection for years, posing the risk of leaking oil into the Gulf. SustainabilityNinja.com

In 1995, the USGS determined that the Austin Chalk is our Nation's largest, onshore domestic unconventional, continuous-type oil resource. More recently, exploration and production in frontier areas of Texas and Louisiana have shown that the Austin Chalk has additional potential as a continuous-type deep-gas resource mostly to the east and downdip of existing oil plays.

Question Yahoo Finance Message Board:

Anadarko to start fracking in the austin chalk in Louisana, specifly in Pointe Coupee parrish?

Answer: Have heard of lease/unit hearing activity by Anadarko related to properties in Avoyelles and Point Coupee Parishes. Understand the activity is related to oil potential in the chalk, using horizontal wells, including fracking to stimulate inflow.

(Planetary Opine: Fracking cracks the earth and then fills it with a quick low cost solution. It's the deep earth version of blowin off the mountain tops in the Appalachians mountains).
