Interfacial properties of CH₄/C₂H₆ gas hydrate particles with chemical additives
Gas hydrates are ice-like solid compounds comprised of interconnected cages of water molecules, which can encapsulate guest (gas) molecules. Gas hydrates can form in subsea oil and gas flowlines operating at high pressures and low temperatures, which are the conditions that gas hydrates are thermodynamically stable. The formation, agglomeration, and deposition of gas hydrates can lead to plugging of the oil and gas flowlines, resulting in disruption to production, economic losses, and environmental impacts. The conventional hydrate prevention strategy involves using thermodynamic hydrate inhibitors ...
