Methane hydrates have been recovered or postulated for virtually all continental margins around the world and a few areas onshore. Volumes of about 2 × 1014 m3 have been estimated for this potential resource. However, only a few sites have been suggested offshore northwest Europe, despite extensive hydrocarbon exploration and academic studies of the margin. Reasons for this anomaly are unclear. To aid the search a new hydrate stability zone map for the UK is presented. As well as identifying a resource, hydrate studies are also important in assessing geohazards to deep-water exploration and development. Stability, processes...
