Abstract: The Shell operated BC - 10 field located in deepwater, 1650 - 1920m, offshore Brazil produces heavy oil in the range of API 16 - 24. The fields are produced using an entirely subsea development concept tied back to the host FPSO located approximately 8 - 10km from the producing fields. Given the high cost of subsea wells and the associated pipelines and artificial lift pumps, surveillance and optimization of each well becomes increasingly important in the operation of an efficient production system . In the case of BC - 10, the entire development concept was based around having accurate subsea metering as this allowed significant design changes including :
