What if the system is splitted in 3 sections: blue, yellow and red?



Blue section - fluid flow in this section is constant preserving the velocity vector, the mass in this case comes into pipe and leaves the pipe with the same momentum.
Yellow section - this section is composed by a liquid slug generator (gas/liquid) and a liquid separator.
Red section - the role of this section is to accelerate the liquid slugs. The high momentum of the liquid slugs create considerable force. We have compressibility and pressure wave propagation, so there must be instantaneous net forces in red section.

No. It leaves with the opposite momentum. The velocity vector is flipped in the blue section.
