Gas Hydrate Joint Industry Program (JIP)


On May 6, 2009 a government and industry consortium, lead by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), U.S. Minerals Management Service (MMS) and a group of U.S. and international energy industry companies under the management of Chevron completed the first ever drilling project with the expressed goal to collect geologic data on gas-hydrate-bearing sand reservoirs in the Gulf of Mexico. Other resource assessment studies in northern Alaska by the USGS and offshore Japan, have shown that gas hydrates in conventional sand reservoirs are likely the closest to potential commercialization.
