Native H2 Exploration in the Western Pyrenean Foothills
Native hydrogen (H2) may represent a new carbon free‐energy resource, but to date there is no specific exploration guide to target H2‐fertile geological settings. Here, we present the first soil gas
Migration of Natural Hydrogen from Deep-Seated Sources in the São Francisco Basin, Brazil
Hydrogen gas is seeping from the sedimentary basin of Sao Franciso, Brazil. The seepages of H2 are accompanied by helium, whose isotopes reveal a strong crustal signature. Geophysical data indicates
Natural hydrogen continuous emission from sedimentary basins: The example of a Brazilian H2-emitting structure
Hydrogen Emanations in Intracratonic Areas: New Guide Lines for Early Exploration Basin Screening
Offshore the emissions of dihydrogen are highlighted by the smokers along the oceanic ridges. Onshore in situ measurements in ophiolitic contexts and in old cratons have also proven the existence of
An Attempt to Study Natural H2 Resources across an Oceanic Ridge Penetrating a Continent: The Asal–Ghoubbet Rift (Republic of Djibouti)
Dihydrogen (H2) is generated by fluid–rock interactions along mid-ocean ridges (MORs) and was not, until recently, considered as a resource. However, in the context of worldwide efforts to
Hydrogen in Australian natural gas: occurrences, sources and resources
Natural or native molecular hydrogen (H2) can be a major component in natural gas, and yet its role in the global energy sector’s usage as a clean energy carrier is not normally considered. Here, we


Natural H2 in Kansas: Deep or shallow origin?
A geochemical study of gas coming from three wells in northeastern Kansas supplements previous studies from the 1980s and points to a persistent regional phenomenon of H2 production. In 2008, a new
Natural Molecular Hydrogen Seepage Associated with Surficial, Rounded Depressions on the European Craton in Russia
In the Russian part of the European craton, several thousands of subcircular structures ranging in size from a hundred meters to several kilometers in diameter have been identified throughout the
Serpentinization and the Origin of Hydrogen Gas in Kansas
Hydrogen gas occurs in ten Kansas wells near the Mid-Continent rift system. Since 1982, two wells have yielded small amounts of gases containing an average of 29-37 mole % H2, the remainder being
Naturally Occurring Hydrogen Gas from a Borehole on the Western Flank of Nemaha Anticline in Kansas: ABSTRACT
Since August 1982, the CFA 1 Scott well in Sec. 20, T14S, R6E, Morris County, Kansas, located about 14 mi (23 km) south of Junction City, has yielded a gas composed of 50± 10% free hydrogen, 50± 10%
Evidence for natural molecular hydrogen seepage associated with Carolina bays (surficial, ovoid depressions on the Atlantic Coastal Plain, Province of the USA)
A study of soil gases was made in North Carolina (USA) in and around morphological depressions called “Carolina bays.” This type of depression is observed over the Atlantic coastal plains of the USA,
H2-rich and Hydrocarbon Gas Recovered in a Deep Precambrian Well in Northeastern Kansas
In late 2005 and early 2006, the WTW Operating, LLC (W.T.W. Oil Co., Inc.) #1 Wilson well (T.D. = 5772 ft; 1759.3 m) was drilled for 1826 ft (556.6 m) into Precambrian basement underlying the Forest
