Only since 1965 has mankind recognized that the formation of in situ hydrates in the geosphere predated their artificial formation (ca. 1800) by millions of years. In addition to their age, it appears that hydrates in nature are ubiquitous, with some probability of occurrence wherever methane and water are in close proximity at low temperature and elevated pressures.
