Texas Brine Company says crews are working on using sonar equipment to investigate a brine cavern in Assumption Parish.
Workers reached the top of the cavern over the weekend and later found increased pressure.
At 8:05 p.m. Saturday evening, the drilling of the Observation Well reached and penetrated plugged brine cavern #3. Drilling continued into the cavern where neither gas pressure nor brine pressure was initially observed.
Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries Enforcement Division agents and Ouachita Parish Sheriff’s Office deputies found the body of Charles Trascher, 64, of Monroe, on the Ouachita River in Ouachita Parish this morning, Sept.
