Numerical modeling of natural gas hydrate systems requires an innovative and complex approach. The variability of parameters present in natural geological settings and the lack of wide spread high-quality 3D seismic data are the main factors limiting large-scale numerical simulations. Here, we present the outcome of a joint academic-industry project on testing the feasibility of a newly developed simulation-module included in the commercial software PetroMod TM for modeling the formation of natural gas hydrate deposits at two locations in the Gulf of Mexico. The project aimed at the scientific assessment of required input data quality and validity, choice of the computational methods, and calibration with the field data.
