Abstract

Gas Hydrates (G. Hyd) such as methane (CH4) hydrates are forming of water molecules in ice-like crystals (lattice shape) with cavities where the methane gas (gust gas) molecules are engaged in, and this process is conducted in a certain condition, mainly in low temperature and high pressure. The objective of the current work is to study the effect of Sodium Dodecyl Sulfate (SDS) additives on Methane gas hydrate performance. Two solutions were prepared. The first solution consists of distilled water (100 ml), methane gas and SDS additives (0.10 g). The second solution consists of same ingredient with seawater (100 ml) instead of distilled water. A stirred tank with 750 psi has been utilized. The highest recovery ratio was 42.15% for distilled water using SDS additives with a pressure cycle duration of 120 minutes. Significant improvement in the hydrate water recovery ratio can be obtained with distilled water and seawater by about 42 % and 15.6% respectively. Generally, SDS additives improve the recovery rate for water in the presence of methane.
