Jang, J., Dai, S., Yoneda, J., Waite, W.F., Collett T.S., and Kumar, P., 2018, Pressure core characterization tool measurements of compressibility, permeability, and shear strength of fine-grained sediment collected from Area C, Krishna-Godavari Basin, during India's National Gas Hydrate Program Expedition NGHP-02: U.S. Geological Survey data release,


Understanding how effectively methane can be extracted from a gas hydrate reservoir requires knowing how compressible, permeable, and strong the overlying seal sediment is. This data release provides results for flow-through permeability, consolidation, and direct shear measurements made on fine-grained seal sediment from Site NGHP-02-08 offshore eastern India. The sediment was collected in a pressure core from the Krishna-Godavari Basin during the 2015 Indian National Gas Hydrate Program Expedition 2 (NGHP-02). Gas hydrate is a crystalline solid that forms naturally in the sediment of certain marine and permafrost environments where pressure is relatively high (equivalent to the pressure measured ~300 meters water depth or more) and [...]

The purpose of this dataset is to illustrate how a suite of fluid flow rate measurements made over a range of imposed pressure gradients yields a permeability value.
