The HYACINTH suite of equipment has been developed to investigate the pressure sensitive behaviour of sedimentary formations up to 250 bar (25 MPa). It does this by collecting pressure-preserved samples from boreholes that can be retrieved, subsampled and analysed in controlled conditions in the laboratory. This paper reviews the development of the system, how it originated from the need to better understand the nature and distribution of gas hydrates beneath the sea bed, and its achievements to date. While gas hydrates continue to be the major scientific and commercial impetus for using, and further developing, this pressure-sampling technology, other...
