Gas hydrates pose the most severe problem in the flow assurance of oil & gas production lines. As such, it is critically important to have a solid understanding how hydrates can affect the transport system. While many other issues (e.g., phase transition, solids precipitation, slugging) must be considered, for hydrates in particular, it is important to have a hydrate strategy that considers avoidance, management, and remediation.
The trainee should have the ability to undertake a critical appraisal of technical and/or commercial literature and demonstrate an ability to manage research studies in the area of oil and gas flow assurance (Gain an in-depth understanding of the technical, economic and environmental issues involved in the design and operation of transport systems).
