Burning "ice"

Gas hydrate deposits in continental shelf sediments are considered a promising resource for future gas supply by several non-European countries. Now the European Concerted Research Action (COST) has been established with Stefan Bünz, associate professor at CAGE, as its Vice Chair. “With the wide spectrum of gas hydrate research undertaken in CAGE (Centre for Arctic Gas Hydrate, Environment and Climate, in Norway), we will significantly contribute to three of the working groups in MIGRATE: resource assessment; exploration, production and monitoring technologies; and environmental and geohazard challenges. “ says Bünz. CAGE will particularly contribute with a large seismic database from the Norwegian and Arctic margins and development of seismic-based technologies.
