Citation: Chuvilin, Evgeny; Guryeva, Olga. 2008. CARBON DIOXIDE GAS HYDRATES ACCUMULATION IN FREEZING AND FROZEN SEDIMENTS. Proceedings of the 6th International Conference on Gas Hydrates (ICGH 2008), Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA, July 6-10, 2008.
Abstract: The paper presents results of the experimental research on the process of CO2 gas hydrates formation in the porous media of sediments under positive and negative temperatures. The subject of research were sediment samples of various compositions including those selected in the permafrost area. The research was conducted in a special pressure chamber, which allowed to monitor pressure and temperature. Using the monitoring results it was possible to make quantitative estimation of the kinetics of CO2 hydrates accumulation in the model sediments. In the course of the research it was demonstrated, that active hydrates accumulation occurred in frozen sediments under negative temperatures (about -4 оС). At the same time a comparative analysis of СО2 and СН4 hydrates accumulation was made in the porous media of the sediment under negative temperatures. The performed experiments enabled to estimate an influence of temperature, sediment composition and water content on kinetics of CO2 hydrates accumulation in porous media. Besides, we made an estimation of the amount of hydrates, which could be formed in hydrates containing sediments at freezing of the remaining pore water.
