This work develops a technical and economic comparative study between a scenario with exploitation using stationary production units and a scenario with subsea to shore. Moreover, evaluates the subsea to shore scenario varying parameters of oil type (heavy, medium and light), water depth (80 m, 500 m 1000 m) and distance to the coast (50 km and 100 km), aiming the optimization of the subsea equipment for the different scenarios created from the combination of the three parameters mentioned above and the flow simulation success. A pilot field was designed for this study and used in the flow simulations performed. The results corroborate with the difficulties of flowing expected with the increase of the water depth and the distance to the coast and decrease of the oil density.
