In 2017, the Gulf of Mexico Hydrate Pressure Coring Expedition (UT-GOM2-1) drilled and cored a hydrate-bearing channel-levee system in Green Canyon Block 955 (GC 955) in the Gulf of Mexico. This was the first scientific expedition offshore United States focused on recovering cores at in situ pressure within high-saturation hydrate reservoirs. The initial scientific results from this expedition were published in the AAPG Bulletin v. 104, no. 9 (Boswell et al., 2020). In that volume, seven papers describe the overall effort (Flemings et al., 2020), the role of salt diapirism on the temperature and pressure of...
