Natural gas hydrates are ice-like structures composed of water and gas molecules that have long been a problem in petroleum industry. Heavy cost of alcohol and glycol injection has spurred an interest in called 'kinetic inhibitors' able to slow down the hydrate formation rather than prevent it. Since it is not possible to compare directly the macroscopic effects of different inhibitors on the kinetics of hydrate formation in computer experiments, a scheme capable of culling the list of… CONTINUE READING
