The Black Sea is among the regions that have been cited in the literature as having conditions suitable for natural gas hydrate reserves. Russian scientists confirmed by seismic studies that there are five regions in the Black Sea which are highly promising for hydrate formation. In this study, conventional petroleum engineering methods are utilized to estimate the possible amount of gas available in one of the Black Sea Basins.
