Louisiana is not under the same arrangement as Puerto Rico or Micronesia (at least, not yet, in Puerto Rico's case), so it's not an apt comparison. And I don't see Louisiana seceding under amicable circumstances where the government would be inclined to be generous.
I can't think of any scenario where it would be remotely conceivable for Lousiana to secede under non-amicable terms.
And with that I don't mean it's likely for secession to happen amicably, just that a non-amicable secession is even more improbable.
