BAYOU CORNE, LA (NBC33) — The Texas Brine company says it will begin bringing in parts for a drilling rig starting this morning, Wednesday, Aug. 15.
Today the equipment will be used to drill into an abandon salt cavern near the site of a huge sinkhole in Assumption Parish. Texas Brine says it will take around 20 flat bed trucks to bring in the materials. The company says it will take two to three days to assemble the rig.
Crews could begin pile driving as early as Friday.
