Honours project work by the second, third and fourth of the above-named authors under the supervision of the first is described. It relates to the energy return on energy invested for two hydrocarbon resources: crude oil and natural gas hydrates. Information obtained from the web has been evaluated and organised into a synthesis which, it is believed, will be of interest both to a specialist in such matters and to a reader seeking an introductory coverage.
