Dynamic Modeling of Hydrate Formation and Dissociation in the Presence of Thermodynamic and Kinetic Hydrate Inhibitors

This project supports a joint industry project (JIP) involving operator companies active in offshore Newfoundland and Labrador. The JIP is supported through a contract with Petroleum Research NL (PRNL). The project aims to remove obstacle to cost effective developments from marginal oil fields in Atlantic Canada. This will be through developing strategies and techniques to manage the formation of solid like natural gas hydrate in subsea production systems. The MITACS support will be used to hire a Postdoctoral fellow (PDF) to support the activities envisaged in the main JIP project. The PDF will be supporting computational modelling and design and operations of tests systems at C-CORE and Memorial University (MUN) Hibernia EOR facilities.
