Production of Natural Gas From Gas Hydrate Deposits
Gas hydrates are the solid, crystalline compounds which are formed under low temperature and high pressure
conditions of permafrost regions & mostly in deep sea sediments. Gas hydrate deposits are abundant in nature and can be
utilized as a future energy resource. Various researches and experiments have performed on its production and are still going
on to make it possible economically. This paper reviews the major production techniques which have been employed in
extraction of natural gas from hydrate deposits along with their field experiment. It also put emphasis on current
environmental challenges related with natural gas hydrate along with solutions.
Keywords- Natural Gas Hydrates, Gas Hydrate Stability Zone, Carbon Injection Method, Depressurization Method.
