Bayou Corne is a collapsed Salt Dome Storage Facility and has ZERO to do with hydraulic fracturing in a production well. The storage facility was created by leaching out the salt and there is NO WAY anyone would consider fracturing a hole designed to KEEP the oil/gas in. Fracturing is done to let the oil/gas/water out.

There are fracking operations going on all over the area surrounding Bayou Corne. Apparently they didn't get the message that fracking isn't a good idea. Too late. Seismic activity initiated by the fracking and methane pressure from under the salt domes is breaking them apart. Fresh water incursion is dissolving the domes. It's just a matter of time.
Check this link for current videos of the situation and pictures prior to the sink hole opening.
