Burned gas separated from methane hydrate gas is seen on the deep-sea drilling vessel "Chikyu" in the Pacific, off Aichi Prefecture, central Japan, in this handout photo taken and released by Japan Oil, Gas and Metals National Corporation (JOGMEC) March 12, 2013. JOGMEC said on Tuesday it extracted gas from offshore methane hydrate deposits for the first time in the world, as part of an attempt to achieve commercial production within six years. Since 2001, Japan, which imports nearly all of its energy needs, has invested several hundred million dollars in developing technology to tap methane hydrate reserves off its coast that are estimated to be equal to about 11 years of gas consumption.
