The effect of water and methanol on the phase equilibria of hydrocarbon and other reservoir fluids is rigourously calculated by a cubic equation of state, with parameters obtained from binary data. For hydrate equilibria predictions the model is coupled with the ideal solid solution theory. The predictions of the model are compared with a wide variety of experimental hydrate inhibition data and consistently good agreement is demonstrated. Satisfactory predictions are also obtained for the distribution of methanol among equilibrium phases.
