Eingeschlossene Ressource: Methan in natuerlichen Gashydraten

Judith Maria Schicks, Manja Luzi & Erik Spangenberg
The presence of natural gas hydrates at all active and passive continental margins has been proven. Their global occurrence as well as the fact that huge amounts of methane and other lighter hydrocarbons are stored as natural gas hydrates has led to the idea of using hydrate bearing sediments as an energy resource. However, natural gas hydrates remain stable as long as they are in mechanical, thermal and chemical equilibrium with their environment. Thus, for...
