Title: Energy Efficiency in the Electrical Heating of Methane Hydrate Reservoirs
Author: R.C. Callarotti
Source: Canadian Unconventional Resources and International Petroleum Conference, October 19-21, 2010
Summary: In this paper we analyze the production of methane gas from methane hydrate deposits when heat is supplied by an electrical heater located in the reservoir.

2. Topic: Methane Hydrate
Title: Fundamentals of Methane Hydrate Decomposition
Author: J.A. Ripmeester, S. Alireza, B. Hosseini, P. Englezos, S. Alavi
Source: Canadian Unconventional Resources and International Petroleum Conference, October 19-21, 2010
Summary: The rate of methane hydrate decomposition in a constant energy simulation is affected by heat and mass transfer arising from the breakup of the hydrate framework and release of the methane gas into the liquid phase.

Topic: Spatial Variations in the Salinity of Pore Waters in Northern DeepWater Gulf of Mexico Sediments: Implications for the Stability of Methane Hydrates

Source: AAPG Datapages - AAPG Annual Convention and Exhibition-11-14 April 2010

Summary: A study has been made of spatial variation in pore water salinities in sediments in the northern GOM to document salinities in the upper 500 m of the sedimentary section, the approximate depth range in which methane hydrates may be stable.
