Legislative Action This report describes actions taken in Fiscal Year (FY) to implement the Methane Hydrate Research and Development Act of , as amended by the Energy Policy Act of (EPAct). This second edition provides extensive information on the attributes of the Natural Gas Hydrate (NGH) system, highlighting opportunities for the innovative use and modification of existing technologies, as well as new approaches and technologies that have the potential to dramatically lower the cost of NGH exploration and production. The “methane burp” theory (see “Evidence for a ‘methane burp,’” Geotimes, February ) is a potential cause for concern in methane hydrate research and resource the methane hydrate stability zone lies near the continental slope it is not uncommon for disruption of the sediment to cause fracturing of the solid lattice and significant sediment slumping, releasing.

  But the potential impact on future supplies is promising enough to have prompted a variety of innovative R&D by the Office of Fossil Energy (FE) since the Methane Hydrate Research and Development Act of designated DOE as the lead U.S. agency for research in this area.
