A customer in the Gulf of Mexico had production via subsea tieback from several wells in a field located in 4,000 ft (1219 m) of water. The production frequently experienced slugging (unstable flow), which exhibited effects topside. Periodic slugging (up to 2,200 psig) would lead to tripping the entire subsea field, causing field shut in. The slugging was worsened by subsea corrosion inhibitor application, which is required to maintain subsea pipeline integrity.
