AbstractNatural gas hydrate exists in sediment, a complex system with various constituents, and its saturation is subject to the influence of sediment. Through a series of experimental investigations, particle size is identified as the most important factor that controls the saturation of gas hydrate in sediment. Studies also revealed that sorting of sediment and mineral composition also play certain roles in affecting hydrate saturation in sediments. The investigation about the proton relaxations of water in sediment found that the sediment control on hydrate saturation is realized through its influence in water states in sediment, some water in sediments not available for hydrate formation.
