Phase equilibria modeling of inhibited gas hydrate systems including salts: applications in flow assurance, seawater desalination and gas separation
Accurate hydrate phase equilibria and vapor-liquid equilibria predictions are critical to the safe and economic design of flow assurance, gas processing, and seawater desalination technologies. Inaccurate predictions of vapor-liquid equilibria can also lead to erroneous hydrate phase equilibria predictions. Hydrate phase equilibria predictions typically use the classical van der Waals and Platteeuw (vdWP) model based on statistical thermodynamics, with some modifications (e.g. CSMGem, with Gibbs Energy Minimization). In this thesis work, the vdWP model with Gibbs Energy Minimization algorithm ...
