Also, as hydrates decompose, particularly at or near the sea floor, subsidence can occur, potentially causing a loss of foundation support for offshore platforms or possibly damaging underwater cables. Research into methane hydrates, therefore, could benefit conventional oil and gas operations by developing improved methods to anticipate and diagnose the presence of these formations. As producers move increasingly into regions where hydrates are likely...

Summary The primary objectives of USGS gas hydrate research are to document the geologic parameters that control the occurrence and stability of gas hydrates, to assess the volume of natural gas stored within gas hydrate accumulations, to identify and predict natural sediment destabilization caused by gas hydrate, and to analyze the effects of gas hydrate on drilling safety. The USGS in 1995 made the first systematic assessment of the in-place natural gas hydrate resources of the...

Even though gas hydrates are known to occur in numerous marine and Arctic settings, little is known about the geologic controls on their distribution. The presence of gas hydrates in offshore continental margins has been inferred mainly from anomalous seismic reflectors that coincide with the base of the gas-hydrate stability zone. This reflector...
