Gas hydrates testing, prediction and mitigation.
Gas hydrates exploration and production support:
Intertek Westport Technology Center is an expert in gas hydrates testing, prediction and mitigation, helping clients avoid costly breakdowns of drilling and production operations due to gas hydrate issues. When hydrates form they can cause a breakdown of drilling and production operations. The typical hydrate problem results in a two to three week operational shutdown. Intertek helps clients minimize the risk of operational problems caused by gas hydrates.
Hydrates technical services:
Kinetic inhibition, chemistry and applications:
Full stream fluids testing:
Drilling fluids testing:
Hydrates prediction modelling and development:
Gas hydrates applied research:
Gas hydrates are similar to ice in appearance, but differ in crystal structure. Under conditions of high pressure and low temperature water will physically entrap hydrate molecules inside hydrogen-bonded solid lattice. The hydrate form could be in a vapor or liquid state, miscible or immiscible with the water.
