Cantoned fluids in porous-permeable or fractured media of reservoirs have acquired during the geological time special properties. The fluids from the reservoir could be or not a mixture of reservoir water, liquid hydrocarbons and gaseous hydrocarbons. Considering if inside of a reservoir there are two types of substances like natural gas and reservoir water which may be in the form of vaporous than the condition of saturation of gases with water vaporous is fulfilled. This process is taking place due to thermodynamic equilibrium resulting the so-called gas humidity. This state corroborated with a certain chemical composition plus favourable values of pressure and temperature may be decisive in the appearance of hydrates. In this scientific paper they will be presented from a theoretical and practical point of view the favourable conditions of gas hydrates appearance and the specific ways of inhibiting the formation of this compounds. A case study in which through modelling and numerical simulation of the behaviour of a productive natural gas well will provide a series of data related to this phenomenon. The specific modelling and numerical simulation was adapted to the conditions of formation and subsequently the elimination of the appearance of hydrates.
