Numerical Simulation of Hydrate Formation and Transport in Natural Gas Pipelines – Dr. Abdallah Sofiane Berrouk – The Petroleum Institute

Gas hydrate plugging is considered to be a very problematic topic during petroleum production and transportation. The phenomenon of hydrate plug formation involves inter-related effects related to different disciplines, namely multiphase flow, thermodynamics, surface chemistry and solid mechanics. At present the problem is not fully understood, although much information is becoming available about hydrates in general. Computational Fluid Dynamics technology is used to investigate hydrate formation, deposition and transport of hydrates in natural gas pipelines. The aim is to develop and validate the next-generation fluid dynamic models for hydrate formation and transport that account for different mechanisms such as nucleation, agglomeration, turbulent multiphase flow dynamics and heat transfer, and complex deposit rheology. The result is robust and reliable computational fluid Dynamics (CFD) models for the accurate prediction of magnitude and location of gas hydrate deposits in natural gas pipelines and cryogenic systems
