The Chinese Ministry of Land and Resources (MLR) has announced that natural gas hydrate samples had been discovered in northwestern China’s Qinghai province, the first land-based find of this kind in China.  This adds to the North American land based known locations. The discovery was made at an altitude of 4,062 meters above sea level […]

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), U.S. Minerals Management Service (MMS) and a group of U.S. and international energy industry companies under the management of Chevron have completed the first ever drilling project with the goal to collect geologic data on gas-hydrate-bearing sand reservoirs in the Gulf of Mexico. Results, […]

There is a lot of natural gas out there in the ground and stored away in methane hydrates. Today we’ll look into the land based new production skills that are releasing a lot of natural gas that used to be uneconomic as it is locked into rock that is so low in porosity that it […]

Monday March 23 saw 24 papers about natural gas hydrates, the frozen methane locked up in frozen deep cold water, at the American Chemical Society’s 237th National Meeting in Salt Lake City. Known as gas hydrate, it is a frozen form of natural gas that can burst into flame at the touch of a match […]

With natural gas production growing, landfills getting “drilled” for methane and the sure to come list of new research on making methane from organics the question coming up for fuel cells, motorcycles, cars and just huge storage and transport for methane is going to come rushing at us and soon. Today methane is simply compressed […]
