It is known that world consumption of the energy resources, which especially presented by oil and gas, steadily grows, so even expected stocks will suffice mankind approximately for 60-70 years. In this regard experts of various countries of the world (Japan, the USA, India, etc.) directed the efforts to studying of gaseous-hydrate fields, whose stocks at least exceed the reconnoitered and expected stocks of oil, gas and coal of together taken twice. In this article the main methods will be considered (in many aspects experimental) production of gas hydrates, the author will give the ideas on this matter, and also he will try to make calculation (it’s elements) of gas production from such fields for conditions of the Caspian Sea and Black the seas, which contain them enough in a large number.
