A018 Exploration for Gas Hydrates Based on Seismic Information – With Examples from Northern Gulf of Mexico J. Dai* (Schlumberger) & N. Dutta (Schlumberger) SUMMARY A five-step integrated workflow is developed to delineate shallow gas hydrates using seismic information. We applied the workflow and estimated gas hydrate saturations in two study areas in the northern deepwater Gulf of Mexico. Due to lack of hard data (well control) for the shallow seismic data our predictions used analogue models based on geologic interpretation seismic inversion and the basic principles of rock physics. To examine our predictions we analyzed the hydrate from the
