Methane hydrate

  • Alaska's Methane Hydrate Resource Spark Debate Over Energy And Climate ...

    The U.S. Department of Energy and industry partners over two winters drilled into a reservoir of methane hydrate, which looks like ice but burns like a candle if a match warms its molecules.

    U.S. Department of Energy researchers and industry partners are analyzing data from trials on Alaska's North Slope that tested a method of extracting methane from methane hydrate. That's a lattice of ice that traps gas molecules but does not bind them ...

  • Climate-changing methane 'rapidly destabilizing' off East Coast, study finds

    Temperature changes in the Gulf Stream are "rapidly destabilizing methane hydrate along a broad swathe of the North American margin," the experts said in a study published Wednesday in the peer-reviewed journal Nature.

  • Methane hydrates found in EEZ

    Methane hydrates, viewed as a next-generation energy source, have been found under the sea in two areas of Japan's exclusive economic zone, a group of researchers said.

  • Strategic Carbon heats up

    Founded last year, Strategic Carbon has taken its time to create what it calls a "strategic network of world-class research institutions" to position itself as a leader in the fields of methane hydrate exploration, carbon sequestration and ...

  • Methane hydrate deposits discovered in Japan

    Two big deposits of methane hydrate, which is regarded by experts as a potential new generation fuel, have been discovered in Japan.

  • Climate-Changing Methane Reservoirs In The East Coast

    The team of scientists used seismic records and ocean models to come up with the estimate that there are 2.5 gigatonnes of frozen methane hydrate that could separate into methane gas and water. If released, the methane gas would rise up through the ...

  • Waking the methane monster is madness (1)

    There is an enormous amount of methane (CH4) on earth frozen into a type of ice called methane hydrate. Most of these are in sediments of the ocean, but some are associated with permafrost soils.

  • Q&A with Jon Gibbins

    Principally, unconventional gas such as shale gas and some of the methane hydrates. We were working with gas that had escaped from source rocks and was trapped.

  • Waking the methane monster is madness (2)

    According to Natalia Shakhova, a biogeochemist at the University of Alaska, Fairbanks, and one of the leaders of the Siberian Shelf study, "The Siberian Shelf alone harbours an estimated 1,400 billion tonnes of methane in gas hydrates, about twice as ...

  • Shale oil vein raises energy, tech hopes

    The seabed off Japan is believed to hold abundant deposits of methane hydrate, or "burning ice." The trade ministry estimates that there is 1.1 trillion cu.

  • Climate Catastrophe Nearer, Al Gore Gives Us About 90 More Years

    There's also the problem that rising ocean temperatures will allow methane hydrates to escape. That's gas. And that gas released into the atmosphere means faster erosion of the ozone layer, possibly speeding up the process and making matters even worse.

  • A Massive Field Of Frozen Greenhouse Gas Is Thawing Out

    Long-term shifts in the temperature or location of the Gulf Stream have been going on for around 5,000 years, the study suggests, and these changes are destabilizing 2.5 gigatonnes of methane hydrate—a methane gas molecule trapped in a cage of frozen ...

  • Climate Crimes Against Humanity

    Frozen methane hydrates along the U.S. continental shelf are destabilizing due to shifts in the gulf stream. Scientists' physical predictions are often accompanied by societal and economic predictions as well.

  • BP says recent oil sheen in Gulf likely came from discarded equipment

    The equipment, an 86-ton steel container called a cofferdam, trapped oil and slushy methane hydrates from a leaking drill pipe in an attempt to funnel it to the surface.

  • BP asks to abandon plugged containment dome on bottom of Gulf of Mexico

    A mixture of oil and slushy methane hydrate -- a frozen form of natural gas -- is believed to have plugged the exit leading to the stovepipe at the top of the dome during the oil collection attempt.

  • READER SUBMITTED: Human Impact On Climate Focus of UConn Teale ...

    Many components of the Earth system, including the ice sheets, sea level, and parts of the carbon cycle such as permafrost peats and methane hydrates, will respond most strongly to a prolonged change in climate that CO2 emissions will produce. Archer ...

  • Shanghai Electric taps 'combustible ice' in future energy plan

    A natural gas hydrate, combustible ice is mainly found in deep seas (China successfully excavated combustible ice from below the floor of the South China Sea in May 2007, and ) and on plateaus.

  • Perfect Weather for Malaria; Fertilizing the Ocean with Iron to Save Salmon

    Seafloor methane bubbling up. One of the most dangerous things lurking in the deep isn't a hungry Kraken—it's a frozen form of methane.
