Title: The Bayou Bouillon Salt Dome, St. Martin Parish, Louisiana

Author(s): David Donoghue (1)


The Bayou Bouillon salt dome is located in the swamps northeast of Martinsville, Louisiana. Cap rock appears to occur at depths of 1,500 to 2,000 feet. The salt has a rather gentle slope on the east and north, but the west and south sides of the dome are unexplored. Small quantities of heavy black oil have been found in shallow sands.
