Integrated analysis of reservoir and production system models for field development can improve production forecasts. This integration allows the evaluation and optimization of parameters of both systems for both financial return and accurate production prediction. This work evaluates the presence and position of manifolds and their influence on production. We use a Brazilian benchmark case to perform an integrated analysis of oilfield production evaluating the influence of various aspects of manifold systems to increase financial return. The results showed that integrated analysis of optimized manifold locations and the number of connected wells improved financial return. Thus, we recommend the inclusion of this integrated production modeling in field management.
