Film growth kinetics data of methane hydrate were measured by a suspended gas bubble in water over the temperature and pressure ranges of 273.4~279.4 K and 3.60~11.90 MPa, respectively. The dimensionless Gibbs free energy difference (-ΔGexp/RT) was used as the driving force to correlate the experimental data and a model involving parameters of physical significance for hydrate film growth kinetics was proposed. The reaction order (n=1.60), apparent activation energy (55.95 kJ•mol-1) and pre-exponential factor (1.65×1011 mm2•s-1) of methane hydrate film growth kinetics was regressed. Meanwhile the influences of temperature and pressure upon the film growth rate of methane hydrate were also discussed.

Key words: methane, hydrate, suspended bubble, kinetics, activation energy
