Gas Hydrates, the convenient bridge fuel towards a prosperous, clean energy future.
Times are changing. A new fuel is about to replace oil. It is more abundant than oil and all commercialized gazes combined. It emits half the greenhouse gas emissions resulting from currently exploited gases and oil. Gas Hydrates appear to be the miracle solution to the energy crisis.
First of all, it is highly convenient that we could prevent a natural disaster by using it to our advantage. Because Gas Hydrates emit half the greenhouse gas emissions produced by currently commercialized fuels and that the oil and gas industry has the resources and the infrastructure necessary to fulfill this task, it would be perfectly reasonable for the Oil industry to exploit this resource. If proper pipelines are built, Gas Hydrate Fuel prices would be comparable, if not, better than current oil and gas prices.
For an ecologically friendly extraction, it is important to ensure that the methane will not seep into the oceans and the atmosphere once it is freed from the hydrates. Methane separates from the hydrates when it is exposed to higher temperatures. It may be separated from the sediments with the use of steam injection. Due to ocean temperature warming, the hydrates unfreeze and free the trapped gas (Methane). It is necessary that we determine when and where this gas will naturally seep into the oceans and the atmosphere, to determine what quantity of gas is expected to be released in which deposits. If we determine these factors, it would be reasonable to collect or safely extract- the methane when or before- it is naturally released due to ocean temperature warming.
The oil industry has the infrastructure and the resources to exploit this abundant, clean burning fuel. Collecting and/or extracting hydrates, is essential for the survival of the human race. If we dont have a transition fuel between oil and renewable energy, the methane will naturally seep into the oceans and the atmosphere in massive quantities due to ocean temperature warming. We may presume that since, after the era of charcoal, came the era of oil- after the industrial era of Black Gold, shall ensue the era of Gas Hydrates, and later, of clean energy.
Oil, it's all around us, in our products. What would we do without plastics? Are we wasting all the oil in vehicles?
