There are no specific Research Opportunities or Advisers, as methane hydrates research can be performed at any Federal laboratory or accredited University.

With respect to the energy production potential of gas hydrates, interest is in projects that will provide improved tools, methods, and information relative to the remote detection, characterization, and appraisal of production potential of methane hydrates.

With respect to gas hydrates as a part of the global environment, interest is in projects that provide an improved understanding of the processes that control the distribution, occurrence, and stability of gas hydrates in marine and permafrost settings.

For details, please see the NETL Methane Hydrates Fellowship Programs and An Interagency Roadmap for Methane Hydrate Research and Development.
