© 2021, Akadémiai Kiadó, Budapest, Hungary.The motivation for this study was the potential of arginine, glycine and valine to be examined as promoter or inhibitor on methane (95%)–propane (5%) hydrate formation and the examination of which flow is better for hydrate formation. The experimental outcomes indicated that glycine can be used as inhibitor while valine and arginine can be used as promoters. Rushton turbine experiments had higher values in rates of hydrate formation compared to pitched blade turbines with percentage difference of 4.3% and 4.93% between RT vs PBTU and RT vs PBTD, showing that radial flow creates better conditions for hydrate formation.
