Gas hydrates are one of the major problems in oil and gas industry due to its tendency to cause plugging in pipelines. However as far as the industry is concerned, gas hydrates also brings benefits. Examples of this are the importance of the natural methane hydrates that are formed at the bottom of the ocean. This natural hydrate are said to have twice the number of the current world reserves which includes fossil fuel, coal and gas. In other word it is the new possible fuel energy for mankind. Another benefit of gas hydrate is its capability of storing gas for the use of transportation; this is help by the ability of gas hydrate to store large volume of gas into a smaller volume. However, due to slow formation of gas hydrate, it is difficult to implement the usage of gas hydrates for transportation vessel in the industry. The ability to understand the behavior of gas hydrates is very important as it could help and tackle the idea to improve the reaction and it is also essential to gather more data as not many works have so far been done upon the study of kinetics reaction using potassium oxalate monohydrate (POM) as promoter. In this project, a total of 8 experiments are done to study the reactivity of POM on the formation of gas hydrates. The responding variable is the induction time. The shorter the induction time, the faster a fully growth of gas hydrates are formed. Then the experiments and observations were compared with some previous works that are done using other promoter. In addition to performing and reporting on a brief literature study of the subject, a description of the equipment and related experiments in detail are provided
