During the production of gas one of the major problems is the formation of hydrate crystals in the pipeline. The growing hydrate crystals can form hydrate plugs in the pipeline. The hydrate plug effect lengthens production outages and results in the loss of money of the maintainer, because the removal of the plug is a time consuming procedure. One of the solutions used to prevent hydrate formation is the addition of modern compositions to the gas flow. The modern compositions help to dehydrate the gas, thus, the size of hydrate crystal does not increase. The substances, used in low concentrations, have to be locally injected at the gas well sites. Thus, an injector unit is required for this purpose. The production-related aspect that the consumers expect much more flexibility from gas provider cannot be neglected because of the habits of the users and the appearance of energy-saving technologies are different. The first part of the article a newly developed injection system is introduced. To achieve optimal dosage, not only the hardware of injection system is important, but also the software. In addition to the traditional control, a preventive inhibitor dosing system can be developed, based on model driven system. The nature of the model highly influences the quality of control system. In the second part of the article a machine learning based predictive detection system is introduced
