Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
is talking rubbish at least in the first two sentences you quote. Standardized child speak. I don't bother about what's in the Geneva Convention, that's political semantics I don't know much about, but if the quality of that information is as poor as the shelf description, oh dear.

As for the methane deposits: That's exactly right. Conditions on the coastal shelf do not favour formation of clathrates. The shelf edge is one of the main targeted areas for commercial extraction of methane clathrates.
