How to Estimate Hydrate Inhibitor to Depress Hydrate Formation

In previous post, I shared what is hydrate formation and primary conditions promoting hydrate formation. Quick review, hydrate in natural gas system is a physical combination of water and other small molecules to produce a solid which has an ice-like appearance. Hydrate should be control because it will cause several problems. The problems include restriction in flowlines, causing physical damage to chokes and instrumentation. One method to control hydrate formation is to inject hydrate inhibitor into production stream.
