Gas Hydrate Research Well Program

Project Acronym: MALLIK | State: Completed | Expedition ID: 5026

In 2002, an expanded consortium with seven international partners undertook a production research well program that included the drilling of a nearly 1200 m deep main production research well and two nearby scientific observation wells. Full-scale field experiments were conducted to monitor the physical response of the gas hydrate deposits to depressurization and thermal production stimulation.
