Abstract Share this page

When natural gas and water contact at low temperature and high pressure, gas hydrates can form. In colder climates (such as Alaska, Northern Canada, and Siberia) and beneath the oceans, conditions are appropriate for gas-hydrate formation. This paper gives the depths and potential thicknesses of such hydrate formations as a function of the geothermal gradient, gas composition, and where appropriate, permafrost thickness. pressure gradient, and ocean-bottom temperature.
