    Abstract: Gas hydrate has been one the major flow assurance challenges in natural gas production, storage and delivery to the end users. The aim of this research was to conduct an experimental investigation of a locally formulated chemical for the inhibition of gas hydrates. The research entails identifying an adequate local inhibitor using an n-vinyl caprol... Show More

    Abstract: This research employed a qualitative system of analysis that incorporates both nodal and economic analysis of distinct tubing sizes, their flow rates and pressure sensitivity, using tubing performance and four distinct economic profitability indicators. Furthermore, the four-profitability indicators were subjected to a cause factor sensitivity test... Show More
