Water / Hydrocarbon Phase Behavior

Module

About the Skill Module

This skill module describes hydrates, explores conditions favoring hydrate formation, and discusses how to prevent hydrates from forming. The skill module also describes how to estimate the hydrate formation temperature of a natural gas stream and the key differences between low dosage hydrate inhibitors and thermodynamic inhibitors.

Target Audience

Petroleum engineers, production operations staff, reservoir engineers, facilities staff, drilling and completion engineers, geologists, field supervisors and managers, field technicians, service company engineers and managers.

You Will Learn

Participants will learn how to:

  • Estimate the water content of sweet and sour natural gas
  • Describe the conditions that favor hydrate formation
  • Estimate the hydrate formation temperature of a natural gas stream
  • Compare and contrast the use of MeOH and MEG to prevent hydrate formation
  • Describe the differences between low dosage hydrate inhibitors and thermodynamic inhibitors
