A Buried VOLCANO In SOUTHEAST LOUISIANA. Paper Written in 1976

Just when you think it can’t possibly get any worse, it does.

A Buried Volcano In Southeast Louisiana – A Paper Written in 1976

“An exploratory well, the Shell Oil Company, State Lease 3956 No. 1, Offshore St. Bernard Parish, Louisiana, was completed in 1963 at a total depth of 8538 feet. The last 1300 feet of hole was cored and drilled through volcanic material of Late Cretaceous Age. The location of this well is shown on Figure 1.
Pre-drilling seismic data had revealed the presence on this prospect of intrusive material with a density slightly higher than that of the surrounding sediments. Gravity data defined a weak maximum here, and no salt was believed to be present.”
