Abstract The focus of this work is a model that describes migration and biogenic formation of methane under conditions representative of dynamic marine basins, and the conversion of soluble methane into either solid hydrate or exsolved gas. Incorporated into the overall model are an accurate phase equilibria model for seawater-methane, a methane source term based on biogenesis data, and a sediment compaction model based on porosity as a function of position, time, and the local volume fractions… CONTINUE READING
