Salt Domes Salt domes, naturally-occurring geological formations, have attracted dramatic transformations. Though they exist in other parts of the USA, they are mostly found in the Gulf region of the southeast, where hundreds of them are scattered in a great arc from Texas to Louisiana.

    The Bryan Mound salt dome, located approximately 60 miles south of Houston, Texas, near the city of Freeport, is the largest of the SPR sites in terms of oil-storage capacity (currently million barrels).

This report revises the original report that was published in Some of the topics covered in the earlier report were provisional and it is now practicable to reexamine them.

Abstract This book provides a description of the mechanisms and extent of natural and man-induced subsidence and collapse at Texas salt domes.

In the Houston diapir province, Frasch mining has caused subsidence bowls and collapse sinkholes at 12 of the 14 sulfur-productive domes. BRYAN MOUND. During the first decade of the twentieth century a young mining engineer by the name of Bernard Baruch discovered a salt dome with a sulfur-bearing caprock some twenty feet above the flat shoreline on the Gulf of Mexico in Brazoria County (at 28°55' N, 95°23' W).

The Strategic Petroleum Reserve (SPR) is a supply of petroleum held by the United States Department of Energy (DOE) for emergency is the largest emergency supply in the world, and its underground tanks in Louisiana and Texas have capacity for million barrels (, m 3).

The United States started the petroleum reserve in after oil supplies. Cross section of Bryan Mound salt dome (east-west) showing geometry of present and proposed Strategic petroleum Reserve caverns.

The site was acquired in April and became operational in Bryan Mound currently has 19 storage caverns, an authorized storage capacity of million barrels and a cavern inventory of million.

Located near Freeport, Texas the Bryan Mound salt dome is a cylindrical dome overlain by caprock up to ft thick and contains 21 mined caverns (Figure 1). The first interception of salt occurs at approximately ft in elevation and contains a high concentration of anhydrite (up to 20%).

Prior to the DOE’s purchase. The Bryan Mound Strategic Petroleum Reserve site is located in Brazoria County, Texas, approximately 65 miles south of Houston. Storage facilities provide space for more than million barrels of crude oil in a salt dome that contains cubic miles of salt.

The oil is stored in specially created underground salt domes located at four sites along the Gulf Coast: two in Louisiana (Bayou Choctaw and West Hackberry) and two in Texas (Bryan Mound and Big Hill). In addition to the four storage sites, the SPR operates a Project Management Office in New Orleans, Louisiana and an equipment storage facility.

The Bryan Mound salt dome was selected as a storage site early in the SPR program due to its existing brine caverns which could be readily converted to oil. Damon Mound, 20 miles south of Rosenberg, is a prominent feature in the flat lowlands, above which it rises 83 feet to an elevation of feet.

It is due to a typical salt dome in which a steep-sided plug of almost pure rock salt is capped by gypsum, anhydrite, and limestone. Draft environmental impact statement for Bryan Mound salt dome.

The island is a mound pushed up by a rising salt dome. The dome has broken through the surface of the island, and the round core of the dome can be seen in the center of the island. Image by NASA Earth Observatory [5]. The Bryan Mound salt dome, located approximately 60 miles south of Houston, Texas, near the city of Freeport, is one of four underground oil-storage facilities run by the U.S.

SULFURone of the major natural resources of Texas, occurs in important commercial quantities in the calcite caprock of some of the salt domes on the Coastal Plain, in the Permian Castile gypsum in numerous localities, and in secondary gypsite material in the Toyah Basin of Culberson and Reeves earliest sulfur deposits in Texas to attract.

Bryan Mound is a acre site which currently holds million barrels of crude ( million barrels below its design storage capacity) in 19 operational storage caverns.

The SPR has two types of caverns in salt domes: SPR-designed caverns (the long, green caverns in the model) and Early Storage Reserve-caverns (the flatter, reddish-colored. Damon Mound is a conspicuous rounded elevation in northwestern Brazoria County, Texas, 38 miles southwest of Houston.

It is oval in shape, covers an area of 1, acres and rises 83 feet above the surrounding prairie. This elevation is the result of an intrusive salt plug which has raised the surface above its normal position.

Located on the west side of Freeport is one of two federal Strategic Petroleum Reserve sites in Texas, the Bryan Mound site. Like the other (Big Hill, near Beaumont) and the other two in Louisiana, Bryan Mound is a subterranean salt dome that has been excavated to hold part of the million barrels of oil held by the SPR, for use in national emergencies.Your E-mail has been sent × Share Link Social.

This new finding, though not compatible with conventional thinking at the time, led to the development of new principles of rock mechanics for earth materials in general, and rock salt in.
