The demand on natural gas is increasing every day. Almost every company needs it in large quantities, but the source of natural gas is limited. Therefore, natural gas has to export all over the world to reach the purchaser. The formation of hydrates in production, processing facilities and pipelines has been a problem to the natural gas industry that cost a lot of money. There are a large number of investigations about this phenomenon. Some chemical methods and technologies have been used in order to inhibit the hydrate formation in pipelines or to predict it; the aim of research studied the problem of gas hydrate formation in natural gas transport flow lines, which leads to freezing then a blockage in the transmission line that result in stopping gas flow rate. Using software (Aspen Hysys) in the Hamada field by entering basic data from the daily operating conditions. Gas hydrates are treated by maintain the temperature within permissible limits This study reveals that the temperature and pressure (80O F / 950 psia) in the Hamada field (well v-10/ well AA5 / well AA10) under daily operating conditions, gas hydrates do not form in the transmission line and that the temperature is the main pattern for the hydrate to be formed .
