High-performance pipeline manufacturer Magma Global has entered into a partnership with back-deck services specialist Maritime Developments to develop a unique well intervention solution for the offshore oil and gas market.
Optimising well intervention
The partnership aims to meet key common challenges in the well intervention sector by speeding up pipe deployment, reducing project risk and maximising operator return on investment.
The joint venture will deliver a complete back-deck package for deployment and retrieval of Magma’s unique m-pipe® high-strength composite pipe product.
Working in difficult environments
m-pipe® is a carbon fibre pipe manufactured using a high-end oilfield polymer resulting in significantly better high pressure high temperature (HPHT) and sour service capability than traditional steel-based products in deepwater applications.
It is also a high strength pipe with high resistance to hydrocarbons and all stimulation fluid types. It has a smooth bore to maximise flow, allowing higher fluid flow rates and pressures to be achieved in well intervention operations.
Complementing the pipe’s unique flexible and lightweight design, Maritime Developments will provide a complete deployment and retrieval package, including a bespoke compact vertical lay system (CVLS) with a built-in reel to keep deployment vessel size down and to minimise back-deck footprint.
