Abstract

Gas hydrates are a vast energy resource with global distribution in the permafrost and in the oceans. Even if conservative estimates are considered and only a small fraction is recoverable, the size of the resource is so large that it requires evaluation as a potential energy source. This review paper discusses the distribution of natural-gas-hydrate accumulations, the status of the primary international R&D programs, and the remaining science and technology challenges facing commercialization of production.
