INTRODUCTIONIndia is blessed with adequate reserves of coal and hydro resource whereas the conventional hydrocarbon (oil and gas) reserves so far estimated are inadequate to meet the growing demand of this country. Latest estimates indicate that India has around 0.4% of the world's proven reserves of crude oil and natural gas and against this the domestic consumption is estimated at 2.8% of the world's consumption. So this huge demand requires to be met either from the imports or increase in domestic production and switching over to other nonconventional energy fuels. Hence, I will discuss about one such non-conventional fuel that is methane gas stored in gas hydrate deposit. Significance of this gas hydrate is that its abundant availability in the shallow marine sediments of slope, in eastern region of India. One such promising area is the Krishna-Godavari offshore, eastern continental margin of India.One such non-conventional fuel is methane gas stored in gas hydrate deposit. Significance or scope of using studying gas hydrate is that its abundant availability in the shallow marine sediments of slope, along eastern continental margin of India and on dissociation 1 cubic meter of gas hydrate yields nearly 164 cubic meters of pure methane gas and about 0.8 cubic meters of fresh water. The amount of natural gas estimated from the world's gas hydrate accumulations though are speculative ranges from at least 100,000 TCF3. In contrast, the conventional natural gas accumulatio
