The implementation of subsea separation and liquid boosting is becoming a common development scheme for the exploration of deep water fields. Subsea separation system should be reliable to ensure successful operation in a wide range of 3-phase flow regime, without need for developments. A subsea separator can avoid or simplying costly surface platforms of floating vessels, as well as being an efficient tool to enhance hydrocarbon production. One solution of interest is the separation and re-injection of water at the seabed to avoid bringing the water up to the surface facility. In this study, multiphase flow characteristics inside subsea separation system are investigated for the design of subsea separation system.
