Has China found the ‘energy of the future’? Beijing claims landmark success in mining flammable ice 4,000ft under South China Sea:

  • China discovered ice in the South China Sea in 2007
  • On March 28, a trial began where 16,000 cubic metres of gas was extracted daily
  • Minister of Land and Resources said it was a breakthrough in energy use

China has successfully mined flammable ice at sea after nearly two decades of research work.

The flammable ice was discovered in the South China Sea in 2007.

According to Chinese state run Xinhua, one cubic metre of combustible ice is equal to 164 cubic metres of natural regular gas.
