About this book

This is the most exhaustive study to date on natural gas hydrates. In spite of their importance, hydrates are misunderstood, and misconceptions abound. This book provides an accurate review of what hydrates are and under what conditions they will form, and it provides the engineer with the methods to predict the occurrences of hydrates. The petroleum industry spends millions every year to combat the formation of hydrates, the solid, crystalline compounds that form from water and small molecules, damaging equipment and plugging transmission lines. Understanding how, when, and where they form and using this knowledge to apply remedies in practical applications are crucial. This book presents the most comprehensive study of natural gas hydrates. It is a manual for the engineer or textbook for the student. It contains cutting-edge solutions to natural gas hydrate problems.


Hydrate Types and Formers; Hand Calculation Methods; Computer Methods; Inhibiting Hydration Formation with Chemicals; Dehydration of Natural Gas; Combating Hydrates Using Heat and Pressure; Physical Properties of Hydrates, Phase Diagrams; Water Content of Natural Gas

After obtaining his Ph.D., John Carroll worked at the University of Alberta as a Research Associate and a Sessional Lecturer, teaching heat transfer and numerical analysis. He also worked on several research projects, resulting in many papers and conference presentations. Much of this work has been incorporated into AQUAlibrium. Dr. Carroll is the author or co-author of about 30 papers in refereed journals, nine articles in technical magazines, and approximately 25 conference presentations. He has a special interest in the application of Henry's Law. A series of papers, culminating in the recent publication of "Henry's law - Revisited" (Jan. 1999), have appeared in Chemical Engineering Progress. Other papers on Henry's Law have appeared in other publications as well. Following his term with the U. of A., he worked for Honeywell Hi-Spec Solutions (formerly SACDA) in London, Ontario. At Honeywell, he worked to develop a new thermodynamics and physical properties calculation package for their simulation software. He was the Team Leader of a group of dedicated thermodynamicists.
