The advancement of pressure core acquisition and analysis technology in recent decades has enabled detailed imaging and direct measurement of naturally occurring hydrate-bearing sediments and has shed light onto hydrate habits, formation processes, fundamental physical properties, and hydrate deposit responses during gas production. This paper reviews the development and capabilities of the pressure core technology, discusses insights learned from hydrate-bearing pressure cores and inherent limitations of this technology, and concludes with suggestions for potential applications of pressure core technology for investigating hydrate deposits.
