Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, SECTION 1.

On January, DOE hosted a workshop in Denver on the "Future of Methane Hydrate Research and Resource Development." The objective was to take the first step in developing, jointly with the Department of the Interior and the Department of Defense (Naval Research Laboratory), a new R&D program for methane hydrates.

Because gas hydrates represent a large amount of methane within m of the Earth's surface, they are considered to be an unconventional, unproven source of fossil fuel.

Recognizing the importance of methane hydrate research and the need for a coordinated effort, the United States Congress enacted the Methane Hydrate Research and Development Act of At the same time, the Ministry of International Trade and Industry in Japan launched a research program to develop plans for a methane hydrate exploratory drilling project in the Nankai Trough.

Methane hydrates Methane hydrate isn’t a familiar term to most, but it is gaining popularity in the energy the realm of energy R&D, methane hydrates are being evaluated as a potential fuel for the future.

Some believe there is enough methane in the form of hydrates—methane locked in ice—to supply energy for hundreds, maybe thousands, of years. Codification. This chapter is comprised of Pub. –, as amended generally by Pub. –58, title IX, § (a), Aug. 8,Stat.known as the Methane Hydrate Research and Development Act ofwhich was formerly set out as a note under section of this title.

The Methane Hydrate Research and Development Act ofPublic Law does not address such catastrophic scenarios and we are unaware of anyone working on such plans.

Title: Microsoft Word - Methane Author: rabe Created Date. The Methane Hydrate Research and Development (R&D) Act of is passed and authorizes a five-year national program on gas hydrate, funded initially with $ million and funded in each successive year at amounts ranging from $ million to $10 million.

A Methane Hydrate Advisory Committee (MHAC) is appointed to provide advice on this effort. The Energy Research and Development Panel of the President's Council of Advisors on Science and Technology in its report, "Federal Energy Research and Development for the Challenges of the Twenty-first Century," recommends that the DOE Office of Fossil Energy (FE) expend $44 million over five years for methane hydrate R&D.

Methane hydrate, a crystalline solid that is formed of water and gas molecules, is widespread in oceanic sediments. It occurs at water depths that exceed to m and in a zone that commonly extends from the sea floor, down several hundred meters - the base of the zone is limited by increased temperature.

In addition to the U.S./Japan collaboration, FE scientists have worked actively with researchers in Korea, India, China, Canada and other nations, as well as with USGS, the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM), and other federal agencies, to advance methane hydrate technology. The Methane Hydrate Research and Development Act of   If methane hydrate is either warmed or depressurized, it will release the trapped natural gas.

The Energy Department announced today an investment of nearly $ million in 14 research projects designed to help us better understand the impacts of methane hydrates. Gas Hydrates Offshore Southeastern United States. Carolyn Ruppel Co-Chief Scientist Associate Professor Georgia Institute of Technology.

Gas hydrate, sometimes known as methane ice, usually forms when methane and water freeze at high pressures and relatively low conditions occur in the shallow part of marine sedimentary sections on many continental margins.

The United States Code is meant to be an organized, logical compilation of the laws passed by Congress. At its top level, it divides the world of legislation into fifty topically-organized Titles, and each Title is further subdivided into any number of logical subtopics.

Tim Collett, an internationally recognized, accomplished research geologist in gas hydrates, is chief for the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Energy Resources Program gas hydrate research efforts and an adjunct professor for the Department of Geophysics at the Colorado School of Mines, Golden, Colo.

Collett, an award-winning AAPG member, has been with the USGS since and has been the chief. significantly to DOE’s and Congress’s research agenda. Last month President Clinton signed the Methane Hydrate Research and Development Act, which authorizes approxi-mately $50 million over five years to develop an understanding of the nature, behavior and abundance of this clean-burning energy resource.

Explains Langley, “Gas hydrates are. On May 17thth, the Department of Energy (DOE) Methane Hydrates Research Advisory Committee arrived in Woods Hole, MA, for their first meeting after being created by H.R. the Methane Hydrate Research and Development Act of (Public Law ).

The group of 11 academic and industry representatives are tasked with (a) preparing a. For the past 20 years, methane hydrate has been one of the most tantalizing prospects in the realm of future unconventional energy supplies. Inthe U.S. Congress accelerated the nation’s hydrate R&D effort by authorizing the Methane Hydrate Research and Development Act (MHR&D Act).

This legislation substantially increased. The breakdown of methane hydrates due to warming climate is unlikely to lead to massive amounts of methane being released to the atmosphere, according to a recent interpretive review of scientific literature performed by the U.S.

Geological Survey and the University of Rochester. Recognizing the importance of methane hydrate research and the need for a coordinated effort, the United States Congress enacted the Methane Hydrate Research and Development Act of At the same time, the Ministry of International Trade and Industry in Japan launched a research program to develop plans for a methane hydrate exploratory drilling project in.

Statement of Timothy S. Collett on S.the Methane Hydrate Research and Development Act ofbefore the Energy and Natural Resources Committee Subcommittee on Energy Research, Development, Production, and Regulation, hydrate reservoir and the earth's climate could be an even bigger inhibitor on hydrate exploration than present low oil prices and lack of funding support for hydrate research.

The balance may lie between mounting intensive campaigns on climate research and safety procedures on the extraction and use of gas hydrates. Methane clathrate (CH 4 H 2 O) or (4CH 4 23H 2 O), also called methane hydrate, hydromethane, methane ice, fire ice, natural gas hydrate, or gas hydrate, is a solid clathrate compound (more specifically, a clathrate hydrate) in which a large amount of methane is trapped within a crystal structure of water, forming a solid similar to ice.

Originally thought to occur only in the outer. This Act called for the Secretary of Energy to begin a methane hydrate research and development program in consultation with other U.S. federal agencies. At the same time a new methane hydrate research program had been launched in Japan by the Ministry of International Trade and Industry to develop plans for a methane hydrate exploratory.

Moreover, the U.S. Department of Energy's Methane Hydrate Research and Development Program has made considerable progress in the past five years toward understanding and developing methane hydrate as a possible energy resource, the report claims. Methane hydrate, a solid composed of methane and water, occurs in abundance on the world's.Until recently, probably the most widely cited global estimate of hydrate-bound gas was 21 × 10 15 m 3 of methane (STP) or ~10, gigatons of methane carbon.

The success of the initial field studies at Mallik well led to a second research program, the Mallik consortium, this time with the aim of investigating methane production.OVER VIEW: Global Climate Change: Syllabus Miami University, Global Climate Change, SpringStudent Research Database.
