Shri K D Tripathi, Secretary MoPNG said that besides conventional oil we need to look at the potential of unconventional sources like shale oil and gas, CBM, Gas Hydrates
He also welcomed US- based companies to invest in the Indian energy sector and invited them to also participate in India's unconventional hydrocarbons sector, especially in the field of exploration of alternate energy sources such as shale oil, shale gas and gas hydrates
Natural gas hydrates
are "ice-like" solid crystalline structures composed of water and natural gas.
In addition to Skarke and Kodis, authors of the paper include Carolyn Ruppel of the USGS Gas Hydrates
Project, Daniel Brothers of USGS and Elizabeth Lobecker of Earth Resources Technology.
Jitendra Singh highlighted the importance on "Deep Water Ocean Technology" including technology development for extraction of Gas Hydrates
in the Southern Caspian Basin have been of great interest since the 1980s.
Japan Oil, Gas & Metals National Corporation, which has been studying gas hydrates
off the Japan coast, was also involved.
Mechanical reactions of natural gas hydrates
(NGHs) take place in the air medium with the participation of water in comparison with the processes of the mechanical activation (MA) of natural gas.
Under the plan, state-run Korea National Oil Corporation (KNOC) would conduct another exploratory drilling in April next year for gas hydrates
off the country's east coast, he said.
According to preliminary studies conducted by NIO, the Makran coastal belt has extensive resources of gas hydrates
which are frozen methane.
Unconventional gas resources can be classified into shale gas, tight gas, coal bed methane (CBM) and gas hydrates
TEHRAN (FNA)- The project for exploration of gas hydrates
in the Sea of Oman has progressed more than 70 percent, a top researcher said.
