Hydrate surface area measurements during dissociation using dynamic 3d synchrotron computed tomography
MetadataShow full item record
Availability of natural hydrates and ongoing rise in demand for energy, motivated researchers to consider hydrates as a potential energy source. Prior to gas production operations from hydrate-bearing sediments, hydrate dissociation is required to release gas into sediments. To reliably predict natural hydrate reservoir gas production potential, a better understanding of hydrate dissociation kinetics is needed. Hydrate dissociation models assume the relationship between hydrate surface area and (hydrate volume)2/3 to be linear due to hydrate sphericity assumptions. This paper investigates the validity of the spherical hydrate assumption using in-situ three-dimensional (3D) imaging of Xenon (Xe) hydrate dissociation in porous media with dynamic 3D synchrotron microcomputed tomography (SMT). Xe hydrate was formed inside a high-pressure, low-temperature cell and then dissociated by depressurization. During dissociation, full 3D SMT scans were acquired continuously and reconstructed into 3D volume images. A combination of cementing, pore-filling, and surface coating pore-habits were observed in the specimen. It was shown that hydrate surface area can be estimated using a linear relationship with (hydrate volume)2/3 during hydrate dissociation in porous media based on direct observations and measurements from 3D SMT images.
