Addresses the problem of gas hydrates, solid crystalline compounds of water and methane similar to snow that form in and block gas wells and lines, and foul heat exchangers when the gas is cooled. Describes methods of removing and preventing hydrates in language suitable for drilling, pipeline, and chemical engineers and applicable in both onshore and offshore environments. Also discusses the physicochemical aspects and basic properties of hydrates, the mechanisms of hydrate formation, the use of hydrate properties in new technologies and the production of gas from natural gas hydrate deposits. Of interest as well to instructors in advanced petroleum and chemical engineering courses. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
