Gas hydrates are both a huge energy resource and an environmental challenge. They have a significant impact
on society because of their applications to the future of energy, protection of the environment and fuel transportation.
Gas Hydrates opens up this fascinating, multidisciplinary field to non-specialists. It provides a scientific
study of gas hydrates that considers their potential as an energy source while assessing the possible risk to
the environment. The authors also examine the feasibility of using these natural compounds for storing and
transporting gases such as methane and carbon dioxide.
Diagrams and photos are used throughout Gas Hydrates to help readers understand the
scientific and technical content. Each section has been designed so it can be read independently by academics
and professionals in the oil and gas industry, as well as by all those with an interest in how hydrates combine
to be an energy resource, an industrial challange and a geological hazard.
