Abstract

A core holder was installed in a High-Speed X-ray CT scanner to observe the dissociation behavior of methane hydrate-bearing sediment. Artificial methane hydrate-bearing sediment was made and dissociated by the depressurization method. As a result, pore pressure in the sediment decreased immediately and the sediment temperature decreased proportionally to dissociation pressure. The CT luminance value decreased with the decomposition because hydrates in the sediment pore space replaced by methane gases.
