Detection of Gas Hydrates by In-Situ Testing Conference Paper uri icon


  • Copyright 1991, Offshore Technology Conference. Gas hydrates located within the foundation sediments of deepwater offshore structures represent a hazard to foundation integrity. A positive method of detecting gas hydrates is needed. Studies indicate that the cone penetration test and electrical resistivity measurements show promise for in situ detection of hydrates.
