The formation of gas hydrates blocks oil and gas transportation in pipelines, nevertheless sufficient comprehension of gas hydrate behavior is the key to its prolepsis. Thus this study reports the impact of three amino acids such as asparagine, threonine and aspartic acid on methane (95%) - propane (5%) hydrate formation. Based on experimental outcomes all three amino acids performed as inhibitors, aspartic acid > asparagine > threonine following the rank from most powerful kinetic inhibitor to less one. RT experiments both formed more quickly gas hydrates and had higher values in rate of hydrate formation compared to PBTU experiments indicating better gas liquid contact in radial flow experiments compared to mixed flow ones.


Analysis of the Black Sea sediments by evaluating DSDP Leg 42B drilling data for gas hydrate potential
Merey, Sukru; Sınayuç, Çağlar (Elsevier BV, 2016-12-01)
Many gas seepages, temperature, pressure, salinity, anoxic environment and high source gas potential of the Black Sea indicates that the Black Sea might have huge potentials for biogenic and thermogenic gas hydrates. However, the last important parameter to consider gas hydrate as an energy source is the type of sediments. Coarse marine sands are considered as good hydrate reservoirs because of high porosity and high permeability. Only very limited data is available related to the types of lithology of the ...
Evaluation of limestone incorporated cement compositions for cementing gas hydrate zones in deepwater environments

One of the potential problems which must be overcome during oil or gas exploration in deepwater environments is to complete the drilling operations without decomposing the gas hydrates. Gas hydrates remain stable as long as the thermodynamic conditions are not changed. But, especially by increasing temperature during drilling operations, there is always a possibility of change in thermodynamic conditions, which will cause decomposition. Another factor which may disturb the thermodynamic conditions is the ev...
Analysis of carbon dioxide sequestration in shale gas reservoirs by using experimental adsorption data and adsorption models
Merey, Sukru; Sınayuç, Çağlar (2016-11-01)
For carbon dioxide (CO2) sequestration in depleted shale gas reservoirs or CO2 injection as an enhanced shale gas recovery technique, it is important to understand the adsorption mechanism in these reservoirs. In this study, experimental adsorption measurements for Dadas shale samples were conducted at 25 degrees C, 50 degrees C, and 75 degrees C up to approximately 2000 psia by using pure CO2 (maximum adsorption capacity 0.211 mmol/g at 25 degrees C) and pure methane (CH4) (maximum adsorption capacity 0.04...

Dimethyl ether (DME) is considered as a highly promising environmentally clean diesel fuel alternate, which can be produced from synthesis gas. It has high cetane number (55-60) and clean burning properties [1]. Possibility of using CO2 as the carbon source in DME production makes this process even more attractive as a carbon neutral technology. Production of DME from synthesis gas requires a bifunctional catalyst combination, for methanol synthesis and dehydration functions. As for the methanol synthesis ...
Monitoring of fuel consumption and aromatics formation in a kerosene spray flame as characterized by fluorescence spectroscopy
Allouis, Christophe Gerard; Apicella, B; Barbella, R; Beretta, F; Ciajolo, A; Tregrossi, A (2003-06-01)
The large presence of aromatic compounds in distillate fossil fuels should allow, in line of principle, to follow the fuel consumption and/or the presence of unburned fuel in a high temperature environment like a burner or the exhaust of combustion systems by exploiting the high fluorescence emission of aromatic fuel components. To this aim an UV-excited fluorescence source has to be used since the aromatic fuel components are strongly fluorescing in the UV region of the emission spectrum.
