Gas Hydrate Reservoirs

There are two gas hydrate reservoirs. They are Arctic hydrates and marine hy­drates. Gas hydrates are found within and under permafrost in Arctic regions. They are also found within a few hundred meters of the seafloor on continental slopes and in deep seas and lakes. The reservoir architecture, technology needs, and eventual economic importance of hydrates in Arctic and marine environments may be very different. The commercial utilization of Arctic and marine gas hy­drate resources is different.
