The costs of subsea boosting systems have been reduced by adopting three primary strategies: simplifying the system design to reduce weight and cost, simplifying the installation and intervention, and reducing complexity and risk. This study examines how subsea processing (SSP) can develop into an important enabling technology for future ultradeepwater-field developments and long-distance tiebacks. Emphasis on identifying more-efficient subsea boosting solutions has led to a number of initiatives in the industry.
