Background

our story

Magma Global created m-pipe® to solve the problems that were a challenge to steel and flexibles: corrosion, high temperatures, high pressures and speed and ease of deployment.

Made from PEEK and carbon fibre, m-pipe simplifies subsea architecture thanks to its low weight, high strength, flexibility and standardised design. m-pipe is used as flowlines and jumpers by major operators around the world and achieves installed cost savings of up to 65%. Magma’s game changing technology is now solving riser challenges and is incorporated into hybrid solutions by TechnipFMC and Ocyan.

Why

We established Magma to solve the problems of subsea fluid transfer that challenge the industry when using traditional steel and flexible pipe in more challenging environments.

Values

Successfully achieving our mission is based on a strong and committed relationship with our environment, our local community, our customers, suppliers and our employees. At all times in those relationships we are open, honest, fair, we respect each individual and act with integrity.

Mission

Our mission is to deliver the world’s most reliable risers, jumpers and intervention lines for subsea exploration and production, and in so doing provide lower cost, lower risk and environmentally sustainable solutions for our customers.

Safety

At all touch points of our business we prioritise the safety of people above all else. We ensure a firm understanding of, and compliance with, documented controls and processes including QHSE Procedures, Risk Assessments and COSHH Assessments, developed to reduce the likelihood of harm to people, property and the environment to as low a level as is reasonably practicable.
