In this study, experimental data on the kinetics of methane and propane hydrate formation
at constant volume were collected. The experiments were carried out in a batch reactor under different
temperatures and pressures. The chemical anity was used for modeling of the hydrate formation rate
in a constant volume process. In this method, the system was considered as a classical thermodynamic or
macroscopic view. The results show that this method can predict constant volume experimental data well
for both crystals I and II hydrate former.
