Abstract

The paper briefly reviews the effect of electrolyte solutions, benzene, and methyl cyclo-pentane (MCP) on the hydrate-free zone and concentrates on new methods and equipment for measuring the amount and composition of different phases in hydrate forming conditions. A numerical model was used for predicting the hydrate-free zone and compositional data. The developed model can be used as an engineering tool to determine the hydrate-free zone for the transportation of unprocessed well streams in subsea pipelines and gathering networks and also the amount of hydrates to be transferred as slurry where the use of growth modifiers is considered as an option.
