Unlocking gas hydrates: new energy reserves and environmentally sustainable outcomes

Vast reserves of natural gas in the form of gas hydrates (naturally forming ice-like crystals) cover the globe, in sub-sea deposits and regions of permafrost. Gas hydrates are thought to store more methane than all conventional reserves, up to 876,000 trillion cubic feet (TCF) according to estimates published in 2011. However, recovering the methane in an…
