Influence of the granule size and composition on methane hydrate decay was studied experimentally. It was shown that the maximum dissociation rate is achieved for the granule diameter of 0.1 mm and for the uniform powder composition. The dissociation was realized at negative temperatures and in the region of "self-preservation". The granules dissociation rate decreased significantly with increasing the powder layer thickness from 1 mm to 30 mm. It was demonstrated that the nonuniform distribution of granules and the thick layer leads to a decrease in the methane hydrate dissociation and to different kinetic dissociation curves.
