The Inhibition Performance of Poly(ethylene oxide-co-vinylpyrrolidone) in the Presence of Thermodynamic Hydrate Inhibitors
This thesis investigates the synergistic effect of thermodynamic inhibitors (TIs) including monoethylene glycol and Methanol towards KHI poly(ethyleneoxide-co-vinylpyrrolidone) (PEO-co-VP) on the natural gas hydrate inhibition. Hydrate were formed inside the high pressure cell. The effect of inhibitors’ concentrations (TIs, KHI, and TIs + KHI) and sub-cooling were examined by parameters (onset time, growth time, gas consumption, and percentage of hydrate conversion). The change of KHI concentrations were tested to understand the inhibitor’s behaviour.
