Introduction

The world’s largest volcanic gas reservoirs have been discovered in China. Their rational development can potentially mitigate the energy supply and demand imbalance and accelerate the growth of the natural gas industry in China. Meanwhile, this development is of great significance for the advancement of natural gas production technology in general and for the development of similar gas reservoirs.

Due to their complex geological settings, the development of volcanic gas reservoirs has received little study up to now, with only limited experiences accumulated in this area. It is difficult for us, therefore, to put volcanic gas reservoirs into production with current technologies. To develop volcanic gas reservoirs effectively, ...
