Gas Hydrates

Description

bu002965

Various issues relating to the presence of gas hydrates and their formation and dissociation need to be well understood. Plugging of pipelines is one of the main problems encountered by oil and gas companies. With the development of deep offshore extraction, predicting the formation of gas hydrates has become a very important issue. Natural gas hydrates are also a very large potential source of gas that requires further investigation.

Calorimetry, and especially high pressure calorimetry, is an ideal tool for investigating the formation and dissociation of gas hydrates, for determining the kinetics of transformation, and for evaluating the different thermodynamic parameters (Cp). The HP MicroDSC, developed in collaboration with the French Institute of Petroleum (IFP), is specially designed for this field of investigation.

Setaram sells the Gas Hydrates technology UNDER IFP’s LICENCE (French Petroleum Industry) PA WO 2006/129018 A2.
