AbstractDesign and construction of long-term gas hydrate production facilities requires assessment of the in situ formation response to production at a field scale. Fundamental properties, such as tem-perature and pressure, are critical for the determination of phase conditions. Other properties, such as formation resistivity, formation acoustic properties, and fluid mobility, support the inference of forma-tion permeability, porosity, and gas hydrate saturation. An ability to continuously monitor the changes in these properties during the course of a production test will facilitate tracking of the dissociation front and yield valuable information for engineering design and verification of numerical reservoir simulators. Such a monitoring system was designed, developed, and introduced as a part of the Mallik Gas Hydrate Production Research Well Program, carried out by the Japan Oil, Gas and Metals National Corporation, Natural Resources Canada, and Aurora College in the winters of 2007 and 2008 in the Mackenzie Delta, Northwest Territories. Although the deployment of some sensors and the acquisition of some data were limited by various operational challenges encountered during the field program, considerable experience was gained during all phases of the research program. In particular, the acquisition and interpretation of down-hole temperature profiles and changes in formation electrical potentials during testing provided use-ful insight into the stimulation-response behaviour of the reservoir, assisted in the understanding of a range of operational conditions, and supported critical decision-making processes at the well site.
