Titan More Oil Than Earth

Saturn’s orange moon Titan has hundreds of times more liquid hydrocarbons than all the known oil and natural gas reserves on Earth, according to new Cassini data. The hydrocarbons rain from the sky, collecting in vast deposits that form lakes and dunes, according to a recent report from the European Space Agency.

Aside from the methane lakes, the question is whether or not we can convert those hydrocarbons into energy? (or even will we be using them in the future if we send men towards Titan)
