Gas hydrates are considered a global phenomenon that, as an unconventional fossil fuel, can be an alternative energy source for the future. Hydrates form spontaneously in permafrosts and marine sediments, where the conditions for their formation are naturally suitable - low temperature and high pressure. The energy of hydrates could replace or supplement the most commonly used fossil fuels today. Hydrates are also an advantageous solution to the problem of natural gas storage. The main part of the experimental equipment operated is a pump, which generates the pressure energy needed to form hydrates. The article deals with the assessment of the effectiveness of the current state and the estimation of losses in the pipelines of the facility.
