Gas Hydrates (Low-Carbon Fossil Fuel) – Thematic Research

Gas hydrate, an untapped low-carbon fossil fuel, is likely to remain underexplored due to the emergence of commercially viable alternatives, especially renewables. This methane-rich resource is found in abundance on continental slopes around the world and in Arctic onshore regions of Russia and North America. It could potentially supply natural gas globally for the next hundred years. However, the hydrate molecule is highly sensitive to temperature and pressure variations. This makes gas hydrate extraction a very challenging endeavor.
