Accumulation of primary energy of natural gas is a perspective option to store natural gas as artificially created hydrate, where this matter can be stored and, if necessary, can be released to cover energy peaks. Gas can be stored this way at partially higher temperatures and low pressures compared to other storage technologies. The technique of rapidly and continuously producing hydrates of gas could compete with the existing means for storing and transporting these energy reserves in more than an economically efficient aspect, but again these new technologies need development. Transporting and storage of natural gas is economically and technologically demanding, which is always reflected in the resulting price. Natural gas hydrates allow transport and storage at low pressures and relatively favorable temperatures. Presented article deals with design of new energy accumulation system based on gas hydrates. In article is presented the main design and also a numerical model, where the parameters of created hydrate are qualified.
