A thermodynamic model has been developed and successfully evaluated against hydrate data for a wide range of hydrocarbon reservoir fluids at various production scenarios. The comprehensive model is capable of predicting the hydrate free zone and the amount of hydrates formed at equilibrium inside the hydrate region for mixtures composed of hydrocarbon fluids, formation water and chemical inhibitors. Some case studies detailing the application of the model in solving industrial hydrate problems are also presented.
