Predicting Gas Hydrate Formation During Three-Phase Gas-(Water-in-Oil) Flow

Abstract : A new predictive model for hydrate formation kinetics that captures the porous structure evolution in time is coupled with a multiphase flow mechanistic model. It is assumed that the hydrate particles behave as sponges, related to hydrate formation under flow shear. The multiphase flow is considered as a gas-liquid slug flow, where the liquid is a water-in-oil emulsion. Closure parameters for the model are thoroughly discussed and the model trend is validated against experimental results obtained in a flow loop. Mass and heat transfer limitation processes are discussed in terms of the theoretical predictions from the model.
