Effect of POM on Formation Kinetics of Methane Hydrate

Abstract:
The kinetics of formation of methane hydrate in deionised water in presence of Potassium Oxalate Monohydrate (POM) is studied in a batch reactor which is designed and built for a laboratory scale used. In this experimental study, the formation of methane hydrate in deionised water (18Ω) is investigated at fixed temperature of 273.15 K and pressures of 65, 60, 55, 50, 40 bar, respectively. The formation of methane hydrates in POM solutions are investigated by using various concentrations of POM up to 2000 ppm at temperature of 273.15 K and 65 bar presure. For methane hydrate, the induction time decreases with the increase of initial pressure due to the increase of sub cooling and driving force in the system. Moreover, experimental results show that the addition of POM reduces the induction time required for hydrate formation and significantly increases the carbon dioxide and methane uptake and these effects are concentration dependant. Furthermore, the addition of POM in the hydrate forming systems has been shown to improve the apparent rate constant of the system.
