About this book

This book offers a straightforward, informative guide to the chemicals used for gas hydrate formation and inhibition, providing the reader with the latest information on the definition, structure, formation conditions, problems, and applications of gas hydrates. 

The authors review not only the inhibitors used to prevent or mitigate hydrate formation, but also the conditions under which it is necessary to form hydrates quickly, which require the use of promoters. Various promoters are discussed, including their specifications, functions, advantages and disadvantages. The possibility of using natural reservoirs of gas hydrate as an energy source is also considered. 

Lastly, due to the difficulty of conducting experiments that reflect all conditions and concentrations, the book presents a number of models that can predict the basic parameters in the presence of the chemicals. Given its scope, the book will be of interest to professionals working in this field in an industrial context, as well as to researchers, undergraduate and graduate students of chemical engineering. 


About the authors

Dr. Bhajan Lal is a senior lecturer in Chemical Engineering Department at the Universiti Teknologi PETRONAS. He is core research member of Carbon Dioxide Research Centre in Institute of Contaminant Management at UTP. After receiving his Ph.D. degree, he worked as postdoctoral research fellow and Research Scientist in USA, Canada, South Africa, Turkey, and Malaysia. His main areas of research interests are clathrate hydrates, CO2 capture and storage, natural gas storage, flow assurance (gas hydrate as well as corrosion), gas hydrate-based wastewater treatment, and water-based drilling fluid. He supervised master, Ph.D., and postdoc students since 2013. He has published 70 peer-reviewed journal papers, 38 conference papers, and 4 book chapters. In addition, as project leader, he has secured 8 gas hydrate-related research projects worth RM 2 million from oil and gas industries, UTP, and Malaysian Government.

Mr. Omar Nashed got his bachelor’s degree in Applied Chemistry at Aleppo University, Syria. He received his master’s degree by research in Chemical Engineering Department at the Universiti Teknologi PETRONAS, Malaysia. He is currently pursuing his Ph.D. degree by research on gas hydrate promotion for natural gas storage. Since 2012, he published 12 research articles and 3 conference papers in gas hydrate-related research areas such as flow assurance CO2 and natural gas storage, ionic liquids, and nanotechnology.
