C-Innovation selects Magma Global for flowline intervention

World Pipelines,

Magma Global has announced it has been selected by C-Innovation to supply m-pipe® thermoplastic composite subsea jumpers for flowline intervention in the Gulf of Mexico. The 4 in. diameter 10 ksi m-pipes are expected to be deployed in the next few months.

C-Innovation is planning to perform a remediation of suspected blockage or restriction in a subsea production system using Flexi-Coil. The work will be performed in water depths of up to 6500 ft on different assets within the Gulf of Mexico. It will involve lowering a drill pipe riser through the moonpool of an offshore support vessel then connecting to subsea infrastructure using the m-pipe jumpers in a free-hanging steep wave configuration. The Flexi-Coil will be run down the drill pipe riser, through the m-pipe jumper and into the production flowline.

m-pipe is a thermoplastic composite pipe (TCP) that is made from PEEK and carbon fibre, lasered together to form a continuous, bonded flexible pipe. The construction produces a jumper that is lightweight, strong and with high bend strain capacity. In addition, it does not corrode in seawater and has superior resistance against a wide range of oilfield chemicals. The flexible m-pipe jumper will remove heave from the vessel and provide a smooth pathway to ease Flexi-Coil™ access.

Charles Tavner, COO at Magma Global, said, “This deployment marks a first for Magma in the Gulf of Mexico. We are seeing a rapid rise in the number of contractors looking to exploit m-pipe as it is increasingly accepted that TCP is the future for the oil and gas industry. It is always a pleasure to see the feedback from the first time a company handles this material as it is so strong yet light and flexible.”
