From the recently held in guangzhou "into the combustible ice" Marine geology science lecture hall activities learned that the "twelfth five-year" period success in several key areas of detailed survey and multiple hydrate gas hydrates drilling work, our country will promote Marine gas hydrates drilling test in 2017, when the gas hydrate exploration in our country will enter a new stage of development.
Natural gas hydrates formed in low temperature, high pressure and gas sufficient environment, is composed of water and gas molecules, appearance similar to ice and snow, can like solid alcohol was lit, so it is called "flammable ice,". A cubic combustible ice can be broken down to about 164 cubic meters of natural gas, the density of resources is very big, at present the total natural gas hydrate resources in the world's oceans is about equivalent to the known coal, oil and gas twice the total reserves, the characteristics of huge reserves and efficient cleaning makes natural gas hydrate can replace coal and oil in the future of green energy.
Holding the activity of the guangzhou Marine geological survey is directly under the ministry of land and resources of China geological survey of the multidisciplinary, multi-function Marine geological survey research organization, mainly engaged in national basic, comprehensive, strategic and public welfare of Marine geological survey research. Guangzhou Marine geological survey Marine mineral jin-qiang liang said the deputy director of the geological survey, through in the field of natural gas hydrate exploration constantly sum up experience lesson, constantly promote the change of the concept of gas hydrates exploration and equipment technology advances, our country has gradually grope for gas hydrate investigation of the south China sea has been established a set of exploration mode and technical method system, make our country power of natural gas hydrate exploration has been able to stand hydrate exploration.
