Estimation of appropriate driving force is essential to study the mass transfer processes. The gas hydrate formation can be
considered a mass transfer process and several models have been proposed to study the kinetics of this phenomena. In
this paper, the mass transfer approach has been selected to study the kinetics of multicomponent gas hydrate formation. Four
scenarios have been assumed and finally it was concluded that the driving force is the difference between chemical potential of
operating pressure and equilibrium pressure at corresponding same temperature. A new general mass transfer coefficient has
been introduced which is independent of composition. Results showed that general mass transfer coefficient can be used for a
variety of composition at the same temperature and composition.
