When operating underground storage (UGS) of gas hydrates liquidation formed untimely could lead to serious consequences - a complete shut-in and elimination of its process. With a small fund operating wells with high daily output storage operation would entail a violation of technological regime, the failure of gas sales plans, increased hours of downtime operational fund. Therefore, ensuring the smooth and reliable operation of underground gas storage wells fund is an urgent task. The authors of the article developed a methodology for calculating the operational flow of methanol to prevent the formation of gas hydrates in UGS operation. On the basis of the developed technique using industrial operating data Punginskoye UGS made the study of technological modes of its work and recommendations to prevent hydrate formation in the underground gas storage wells.
