Low temperature and high pressure conditions favor the formation of gas clathrate hydrates which is undesirable during oil and gas industries operation. The management of hydrate formation and plugging risk is essential for the flow assurance in the oil and gas production. This study aims to show how hydrate management in the deepwater gas well testing operations in the South China Sea can be optimized. To prevent the plugging of hydrate, three hydrate management strategies are investigated. The first method, injecting thermodynamic hydrate inhibitor (THI) is the most commonly used method to prevent hydrate formation. THI tracking is utilized to obtain the distribution of mono ethylene glycol (MEG) along the pipeline. The optimal dosage of MEG is calculated through further analysis. The second method, hydrate slurry flow technology is applied to the gas well. Pressure drop ratio (PDR) is defined to denote the hydrate blockage risk margin. The third method is the kinetic hydrate inhibitor (KHI) injection. The delayed effect of KHI on the hydrate formation induction time ensures that hydrates do not form in the pipe. This method is effective in reducing the injection amount of inhibitor. The problems of the three hydrate management strategies which should be paid attention to in industrial application are analyzed. This work promotes the understanding of hydrate management strategies and provides guidance for hydrate management optimization in oil and gas industry.
