Methane Hydrate Formation micro-CT images


Project Cover Image

Description

This project include X-ray micro-CT images of methane hydrate formation in sandy sediments in two experiments: (1) NaBr experiment at 0 day (out of hydrate stability zone) and after 19 days of hydrate formation. Hydrate formation was induced by cooling at high pressure. Brine: 1.5 wt% NaBr brine. resolution: 12.50 um. (2) KI experiment #1 at 0 day (out of hydrate stability zone) and after 13 days of hydrate formation. Hydrate formation was induced by cooling at high pressure. Brine: 4.4 wt% KI brine. resolution: 11.40 um. This data corresponds to the journal paper in Xiongyu Chen, D Nicolas Espinoza, Jeffrey S. Luo, Nicola Tisato and Peter B Flemings, (2020), Pore-scale evidence of ion exclusion during methane hydrate growth and evolution of hydrate pore-habit in sandy sediments, Marine and Petroleum Geology (see Related publications).
