In this study, the effect of various multiwall carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) on the equilibrium phase boundaries, kinetics, and self-preservation of CH4 hydrates have been studied. The carboxylated carbon nanotubes (COOH-MWCNTs) and hydroxylated carbon nanotubes (OH-MWCNTs) along with pristine MWCNTs were chosen.

The CH4 hydrate phase equilibrium and kinetic parameters of the CH4 hydrate formation, including induction time, the initial rate of the hydrate formation, gas uptake, storage capacity, water-to-hydrate conversion, half-completion time, t50, and semicompletion time, t95, have been studied. The results show that the nanofluids studied did not affect the equilibrium conditions of the CH4 hydrates. In addition, the 0.01 wt % COOH-MWCNTs mixed with 0.03 wt % SDS showed the best promotional effect. Furthermore, a comparison between the SDS and the COOH-MWCNTs (without the SDS stabilizer) at 0.03 wt % revealed that the SDS was a more effective CH4 promoter.
