Novel Nano-Promoter Endows Natural Gas Hydrates With Significant Industrial Feasibility For Natural Gas Storage And Transportation

Natural gas hydrates, also called combustible ice, are formed with natural gas and water molecules at suitable pressure and temperature, which can achieve the theoretical storage capacity of 160-180 v/v and stable storage under relatively milder conditions (e.g. 275.15 K and 3.2 MPa), which therefore produce great potential in natural gas storage and transportation.
