With its use concentrated in large power stations in most countries, it is a prime candidate for carbon capture and storage, even though technologies for this are not yet commercial – they face enormous cost hurdles and use vast amounts of energy in such steps as concentrating oxygen prior to combustion and separating CO2, not to mention a host of geo-engineering and institutional issues associated with sequestration.

Geological Survey recently released the first-ever assessment of technically recoverable gas hydrate resources – and as the fall 2008 American Geological Institute/American Association of Petroleum Geologists Science and Public Policy intern, I had the good fortune to listen in as AAPG member Tim Collett, the lead USGS scientist on the assessment team, gave a small group of Congressional staffers a crash course in gas hydrates.

This course provides an overview of the petroleum industry and upstream economics, beginning with the geoscientist’s role of evaluating uncertainty in E&P, estimating prospect resources, and estimating chances of success. The course then moves on to field development scenarios and cash flow models, developing various capital budgeting economic indices to evaluate and rank various prospective field projects, production and reservoir management for producing fields and international contract arrangements and emerging trends.
