A three-year research programme on avoiding gas hydrate problems in offshore drilling, production, and transportation of hydrocarbon fluids started in December 1999. The current study focuses on the following topics:

(1) Gas hydrates and deepwater drilling; avoiding gas hydrates in water based drilling fluids

(2) Hydrates in subsea transfer lines; wax-hydrate combination

(3) Gas hydrates in production operations
