3.5. Methane Hydrates Program (1982-1992)
As a result of a growing body of evidence for the prevalence of methane hydrate in
natural settings (e.g., reports of hydrate sourcing of the Messoyakha gas field in the
northern part of Western Siberia in 1972 and the recovery of gas hydrate in a core of
seafloor sediment during Leg 84 of the Deep Sea Drilling Program in 1982), the U.S.
Department of Energy (DOE) became interested in the question: What is the potential of
methane from gas hydrates and what role should the U.S. Department of Energy play in
pursuit of this resource?
