Crews in Assumption Parish working to build a relief well to fix the giant sink hole ran in to trouble this weekend.
When workers tried to remove a casing in the second hole they hit a gas pocket.
No one was hurt and crews were able to fix the problem.
However people who live in the area are frustrated and say they are being kept in the dark.
Texas Brine Company is close to reaching the top of the Brine Cavern and company officials say they will give Assumption Parish officials a heads up 48 hours before they hit their target.
