Water / Hydrocarbon Phase Behavior
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.

Who should attend?
Production and processing personnel involved with natural gas and associated liquids, to acquaint or reacquaint themselves with gas conditioning and processing unit operations. This course is for facilities engineers, process engineers, senior operations personnel, field supervisors, and engineers who select, design, install, evaluate, or operate gas processing plants and related facilities. A broad approach is taken with the topics.
You 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
