Index / Gas Hydrates / Exploration

Max, et al., report that the recent detection of plumes of methane venting into the Martian atmosphere indicates the probable presence of a substantial subsurface hydrocarbon reservoir. Whatever the immediate source of this methane, its production (whether by biogenic or abiogenic process) almost certainly occurred in association with the presence of liquid water in the deep subsurface, where geothermal heating is thought to be sufficient to raise crustal temperatures above the freezing point of water.

Indeed, geologic evidence that the planet once possessed vast reservoirs of sub-... More →

Initial findings from the May 2009 expedition of the Gulf of Mexico Hydrates Joint Industry Project (JIP) have just been released by NETL. These reports detail the extremely valuable and advanced datasets on the various gas hydrate occurrences that were discovered in the deepwater Gulf of Mexico. In addition, the reports provide significant new information on the optimal drilling and well control protocols for deep gas hydrate research projects.
