Abstract: Solubility of methane in octane + ethanol was measured at temperatures ranging from 303.15 K to 333.15 K and pressures ranging
from 2.60 MPa to 12.01 MPa. Experimental data were analyzed using the Soave-Redlich-Kwong equation of state with three types
of mixing rules, and the estimated average deviation from the experimental solubility data was less than 3.5 %.
Keywords: methane – solubility – storage
