Subsea processing and boosting can be key enablers and optimization alternatives for challenging field developments whose benefits increase with water depth, flow rates, and stepouts. This paper summary focuses upon reporting new research-and-development (R&D) initiatives related to subsea processing and boosting offshore Brazil. In the initial exploitation stages of offshore oil and gas fields, the main concern involves the initial investment to construct the production units, drill the wells, and install all equipment necessary for production. Operators usually adopt a conventional solution at this stage, failing to view new technologies as a first alternative. Such technologies are usually considered only when they are vital for a specific field development.
