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.

Gas hydrates, ice-like substances composed of water and gas molecules (methane, ethane, propane, etc.), occur in permafrost areas and in deep water marine environments.

Natural gas hydrates are naturally occurring combinations of water and natural gas (mainly methane) that form under conditions of high pressure and low temperature. They are known to be widespread in permafrost regions and in deepwater sediments of outer continental margins. It is generally accepted that the amount of natural gas contained in the world's hydrate accumulations greatly exceeds the volume of known conventional gas reserves, and can be commercially produced by adapting existing conventional oil and gas production technology. The global resource potential of gas hydrate is in the range of many thousands of trillion cubic feet (Tcf). By comparison, the current annual global demand for natural gas is approximately 117 Tcf. While the current natural gas glut has slowed industry interest in North America, other nations are pressing forward. The 2013 production test in Japan demonstrated the technical feasibility of hydrate production, and commercial production is planned there for 2017. India, South Korea, and China are in close pursuit. The U.S. hydrate program received renewed focus in 2014.
