Abstract

An original method of enhanced recovery by using a partial oxidation method was proposed for gas hydrates reservoirs. This method was based on the heat generation of the oxidation reaction by means of oxidizing materials, some kinds of catalytic agent and iron powders. This paper reports the results of numerical simulation of partial oxidation method as a method of enhanced recovery for gas hydrates. The fundamental data was obtained by a series of experiment of partial oxidation in a vessel simulated as a situation of marine sediments.
