Consumption of conventional reserves of fossil fuel has created a demand for exploring the new resources. In Current Situation it is worthwhile addressing gas hydrates as one such alternative energy resource. Methane gas hydrates have captured double amount of carbon in comparison to fossil fuels, hence they are seen as substitute to Oil and Gas sector. They are present in permafrost regions and beneath the sea. They are considered as future generation fuels. Like several other countries, India has also started a national gas hydrate programme and possible exploitation of this important natural gas resource. This review article discusses their exploitation efforts put by different countries in near past. India has recently competed National Gas Hydrate Programme NGHP-01 and started NGHP-02 recently. The paper throws light on Field Testing of gas hydrates for Alaska North Slope Site, Mallik Site, SUGAR Project, Qilan Mountain Permafrost and Nankai Trough in brief.
