In this paper we discuss on fundamental properties of formation and dissociation of gas hydrates to reveal the dynamic behavior in the process of replacement and reformation of CO2 hydrate. Raman spectroscopy was used to observe directly the behavior on CO2 hydrate formation under in-situ condition. Based on the results, the rate of formation of gas hydrates was quantitatively analyzed using the original conceptual model of formation kinetics. The extraction method of gas hydrates using CO2 sequestration was proposed as a result of the research.
