Four phase (liquid water, liquid hydrocarbon, vapour, hydrate sH) equilibrium data are presented for 2,3-dimethylbutane in the presence of the help gases methane and/or nitrogen. Four phase (liquid water, liquid hydrocarbon, vapour, hydrate sII) equilibrium data are presented for benzene in the presence of nitrogen, and methane and nitrogen. The hydrate equilibrium data are reported over the seabed temperature range (274-288 K). Kihara potential energy parameters for 2,3-dimethylbutane and benzene are reported for hydrate prediction purposes.
