The solubility of methane, the major component of natural gas, in water at 20*C and 1.00 atm pressure is 0.026 g/L. A potential model for methane in water describing correctly the solubility of the gas and the properties of the methane hydrate. The results showed an average repeatability of 2.5% between the measured points. There is a solubility minimum near 170{sup 0}F … a. Docherty H(1), Galindo A, Vega C, Sanz E.

In general, solubility in oil‐based mud is much greater, often 10‐100 times, than that in water‐based mud. If the temperature remains constant what will be the solubility of this gas at the following pressures? This study reports the solubility of methane in distilled water from 150° to 350°C and from 100 to 28,600 psi (689.5 to 197,197 kPa). Also the solubility of crude oil and water in methane has been determined over a broad range of temperatures and pressures. 1.80 atm The solubility of methane in formation water and the water content in the coexisting gas phase are controlled by both temperature and pressure, but using classic calculation models, these two parameters under high temperatures and pressures are inconsistent with our experimental data. The results from the ethanol solubility measurements were used to optimize the Methane solubility in oil‐based mud at different temperatures and pressures are shown in Figure 5. METHANE SOLUBILITY IN WATER UNDER HYDRATE EQUILIBRIUM ... a single methane-gas bubble, located inside different types of domains that are under hydrate equilibrium pressure/temperature conditions. The solubility of methane is raised by increasing pressure and temperature (above about 170{sup 0}F). Methane solubility greatly increases with increasing temperature above 250°C to maximum values of over 800 standard cu ft (22.66 cu m) of methane per barrel of water at 354°C and 28,600 psi (197,197 kPa). 0.60 atm b. We examine the case of bubble dissolution in the bulk, along with the cases of bubble ... higher pressures. The solubility of methane in methanol at 273.15 K and 1.1 to 47 MPa, and methane in ethanol at five different isotherms between 238.15 to 298.15 K and 0.3 to 41.7 MPa was measured.
