We discuss the range of activities at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in support of gas production from natural hydrates. Investigations of production from the various classes of hydrate deposits by numerical simulation indicate their significant promise as potential energy sources. Laboratory studies are coordinated with the numerical studies and are designed to address knowledge gaps that are important to the prediction of gas production. Our involvement in field tests is also briefly discussed.
