Clathrate Hydrate Physical Property Database

Clathrate Hydrate Physical Property Database

The Clathrate Hydrate Physical Property Database is a free web research tool that allows users worldwide to access an up-to-date data collection from published experimental investigations of thermophysical and crystallographic properties of clathrate hydrates. This includes phase equilibria of clathrate hydrates of natural gas with aqueous phases containing inhibitors and artificial sea waters. This web interface also allows access to the Scientific Results from the Mallik 2002 Gas Hydrate Production Research Well Program, an international collaboration aimed at exploring the technical feasibility of extracting natural gas from gas hydrate deposits in the Canadian permafrost.
