ABSTRACT

 

In recent years, the topics of naturally occurring gas hydrates have attracted major interest worldwide due to the fact that they may play a dominant role as possible energy resources in the future. Prior to this natural gas hydrates were mainly viewed at as a source of operational problems in gas processing and transportation equipment. The historical background and development of natural gas hydrates is reviewed as well as the necessary fundamental information about the structures of gas hydrates. One prerequisite of stable operation of gas processing plants as well as the allocation of gas deposit is the exact knowledge of the hydrate stability (equilibrium) data. Whereas a lot of data have already been measured and based on this reliable computation methods have been developed, there is still the necessity to measure equilibrium data to further improve the accuracy of the models.
