Abstract

An inherent problem with natural gas production or transmission is the formation of gas hydrates. These can lead to safety hazards in the production/transportation systems and to substantial economic risks. Therefore, an understanding of when hydrates form is necessary in order to overcome this problem. A new hydrate correlation in which four coefficients are used to compare temperature and gas pressure. Using this simple correlation can help the bottom line and improve hazardous conditions.
