Methane Hydrate

This project is aimed to investigate the kinetics, transport and

process conditions that govern the behavior of methane hydrate decomposition during natural gas production via a novel in-situ heating method coupled with sequestration of CO2. The hydrate research in the CCL is based on a large scale high pressure reactor capable of simulating natural hydrate bearing formations at pressures and temperatures congruent with both arctic permafrost and continental shelf sub-seafloor hydrate deposits.
