That study suggested that the permafrost-associated gas hydrates on the Alaska North Slope may contain as much as 590 tcf (16.7 tcm) of in-place gas. However, the Alaska North Slope gas-hydrate assessment failed to identify or characterize the nature of individual gas-hydrate accumulations or prospects.

Detailed analysis and interpretation of available two-dimensional (2-D) and three-dimensional (3-D) seismic data, along with seismic modeling and correlation with specially processed downhole well-log data, have lead to the development of a viable method...
