Natural gas hydrate potential of the Black Sea

2001-04-01
The Black Sea is among the regions that have been cited in the literature as having conditions suitable for natural gas hydrate reserves. Russian scientists confirmed by seismic studies that there are five regions in the Black Sea which are highly promising for hydrate formation. In this study, conventional petroleum engineering methods are utilized to estimate the possible amount of gas available in one of the Black Sea Basins.

The Gas Hydrate Potential of the Eastern Mediterranean Basin
MEREY, Şükrü; LONGINOS, Sotirios Nik. (Bulletin of the Mineral Research and Exploration, 2018-12-25)
Gas hydrate exploration studies have increased substantially since last decade. Gas hydrate reservoirs are commonly found in the marine environment and permafrost. Studies related to natural gas hydrates in the Mediterranean Basin are rare compared to those released on the continental margins of the United States of America, Japan, India, China and Korea. This study provides an evaluation of the gas hydrate potential of the Mediterranean Basin using available literature data such as scientific drilling...
Methane activation via bromination over sulfated Zirconia/SBA-15 catalysts
Değirmenci, Volkan; Üner, Deniz; Department of Chemical Engineering (2007)
Methane activation with bromine followed by the condensation of the methyl bromide into higher hydrocarbons or oxygenates is a novel route. However, the selective production of monobrominated methane (CH3Br) at high conversions is a crucial prerequisite. A reaction model was developed according to the kinetic data available in the literature and thoroughly studied to investigate the optimum reactor conditions for selective methane bromination in gas phase. It was concluded that at high methane (>90%) conver...
Investigation of biogas production potential of three different sludges after thermal hydrolysis
Arı Akdemir, Ece.; Sanin, F. Dilek.; Department of Environmental Engineering (2019)
Biogas production through anaerobic digestion using biological sludge is one the sustainable approaches. Hydrolysis is the first and rate limiting step during anaerobic digestion. For enhancement of hydrolysis of sludge, it is feasible to investigate pre-treatment before anaerobic digestion process. In this research, biogas and methane production potentials of municipal wastewater treatment plants sludge, membrane bioreactor sludge and organized industrial district sludge were investigated using small scale...
Natural gas hydrates as a cause of underwater landslides: A review
Parlaktuna, Mahmut (2001-05-26)
Natural gas hydrates occur worldwide in polar regions, normally associated with onshore and offshore permafrost, and in sediment of outer continental margins. The total amount of methane in gas hydrates likely doubles the recoverable and non-recoverable fossil fuels. Three aspects of gas hydrates are important: their fossil fuel resource potential, their role as a submarine geohazard, and their effects on global climate change. Since gas hydrates represent huge amounts of methane within 2000 m of the Earth'...
Noble gas isotopes and the chemical composition of geothermal gases from the eastern part of the Buyuk Menderes Graben (Turkey)
Wiersberg, T.; Süer, Selin; Güleç, Nilgün Türkan; Erzinger, J.; Parlaktuna, Mahmut (2011-12-01)
We present noble gas isotope and gas composition data from eight production wells of the Kizildere geothermal field and from six gas discharging pools from the adjacent Tekke Hamam geothermal field, situated in the eastern segment of the Buyuk Menderes Graben system in western Anatolia (Turkey). Gas from both locations is composed mainly of CO2 with minor contributions of N-2, H2S, CH4, O-2, Ar, H-2, C2+ and He, with higher contents of H2S. He and C2+ in Tekke Hamam samples.
