Low Dose Gas Hydrate Inhibitors
Kinetic gas hydrate inhibitors (KHIs) are applied to prevent gas hydrates from forming during gas production, especially in offshore operations. They are effective at low dosages and provide a sound alternative to alcohol or glycol injection.
The following mechanisms for KHIs are proposed:
