Use of Kinetic Inhibitors of Gas Hydrate Formation in Oil and Gas Production Processes: Current State and Prospects of Development
Kinetic inhibitors of gas hydrate formation in oil and gas production processes are reviewed briefly. A general description of the mechanism of inhibitor action is given. The structural distinctions of both synthetic polymeric inhibitors and natural inhibitors are indicated. Prospects of development of new kinetic inhibitors of hydrate formation are shown.
