"Methane hydrate/LNG hybrid-type power generation project" as a strategy for promoting methane hydrate development is proposed in this study. This project has the following advantages. (1) It will be profitable under the current electric power price (19yen/kWh) by expansion of power output and extension of operating life. (2) The risk from methane hydrate development can be reduced. (3) It enables to reduce the CO_2 emission and production cost of the hot water injection method by using waste heat in the power plant. However, under the CO_2 emission trading system, unit price of the dealings which enables this project to be more profitable than the coal-fired power plant is considerably high: 10,000 yen/ton-CO_2. In order to introduce this project to the electricity market, the other incentives such as preferential tax treatment for domestic energy resource development are also required.
