Citation: Makogon, Yuri F.; Makogon, Taras Y.; Malyshev, Alexander. 2008. TECHNICAL LIMITS FOR DEVELOPMENT OF NATURAL GAS HYDRATE DEPOSITS. Proceedings of the 6th International Conference on Gas Hydrates (ICGH 2008), Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA, July 6-10, 2008.
Abstract: In this work we have formulated the set criteria for cost-effective selection of technologies for industrial production of gas from a hydrate deposit, which rely on the properties of hydrate-bearing rock and the geologic properties of the gas hydrate deposit. For over forty years the world’s energy industry has been trying to effectively master vast unconventional resources of natural gas – the natural gas hydrates [1;3;4]. Specialists have accumulated during this period of time a great deal of knowledge about gas hydrates [8;10]. They established the conditions of hydrate formation in sedimentary rock and the conditions of formation and disappearance of gas hydrate deposits, and offered several classification methods for gas hydrate deposits. Specialists have proposed several methods to locate the gas hydrate accumulations on land and offshore and determined the probable areas where gas hydrate deposits may exist. More than 220 gas hydrate deposits were found to-date, and methods to calculate the amount of gas in a hydrate deposit were developed [1;12]. The principles of gas production from a hydrate deposit were formulated and real experience of commercial natural gas production from a hydrate deposit was gained. However, until now there were no set economic criteria for selection of effective technologies for industrial development of gas hydrate deposits. This results in periodic development of various models not applicable to specific geologic conditions.
