Abstract

The "Gas-To-Wire" system was proposed to provide economical gas production system from methane hydrates (MH) Layers. The system is an integrated gas production system that generates electricity using produced gas from MH reserves and sends it to onshore. Its advantage is that hot water for dissociating MH can be served from waste heat of the gas turbine electric generating system (about 60% of total combustion heat) without using additional energy. The physical scaled models were used to investigate the heterogeneous effect of MH reservoirs on MH gas production. A gas production scheme with horizontal wells in radial arrangement was studied to make expand hot water chamber from center to outer. Together of BHP control with hot water injection was effective to enhance gas production of 1.3 x 108 std-cu m for 15 yr. This is an abstract of a paper presented at the 21st World Petroleum Congress (Moscow, Russia 6/15/14-6/19/14).
