Gas production methods from gas hydrates deviate from the conventional gas production since the gas hydrate production involves phase transformations from solid phase to gas and liquid phases. These phase changes produce uncertainties during production processes. These uncertainties are experimentally explored in this study using both synthetic and natural gas hydrate-bearing sediments. The parametric study on the behavior revealed that the magnitude of subsidence during production mostly scales with the compression index of sediments and gas hydrate saturation.
