These studies aim at the production of hydrogen utilizing sea water from the Gulf of Mexico. The process in general is workable where necessary conditions assumed in this project are satisfied. An open reservoir is to be constructed to take sea water from the sea by creating a depression of desired head. The head is created by the natural evaporation due to sun and by the removal of sea water from the reservoir for producing hydrogen. The amount of energy that would be available from the artificially created head is estimated to be of the order of 5 multiplied by 10**1**0 BTU (15 multiplied by 10**6KW-hr) per year depending on the size of the reservoir and other parameters. This energy is in addition to what would be available by burning hydrogen itself which is estimated to be of the order of 10**1**6 BTU( similar 3 multiplied by 10**1**2 KW-hr).
