This study reports the equilibrium conditions for the dissociation of methane hydrate in the presence of cyclic ethers of 2,5-dihydrofuran (C4H6O) and 3,4-dihydro-2H-pyran (C5H8O) as additives. For the water-soluble additive of 2,5-dihydrofuran, the hydrate-liquid water-vapor (H-Lw-V) three-phase equilibrium conditions were measured using the isochoric method in the pressures ranging from 6 to 12MPa and temperatures ranging from 291 to 300K. For the water-insoluble additive of 3,4-dihydro-2H-pyran, the hydrate-liquid water-liquid additive-vapor (H-Lw-La-V) four-phase equilibrium conditions were measured in the same pressure range with temperature range from 296 to 300K. The experimental results show that both additives have significant promotion effects on the formation of methane hydrates. At a specific pressure, the maximum increase in methane hydrate equilibrium temperature is approximately 13K for both additives. In order to simulate the seawater environment, this study also measured the methane hydrate dissociation conditions by adding these two additives to a brine system with 0.035 mass fraction NaCl. The equilibrium temperature at an isobar of the brine system shows a decrease of 1-2K for both additives in comparison to that of the pure aqueous system. ? 2012 Elsevier B.V.
