C-Innovation selects m-pipe for Flexi-Coil intervention

17 Dec 2019



Jumper deployment will be Magma’s first TCP deployment in the Gulf of Mexico

Portsmouth, UK, 17th December 2019: Magma Global today announces 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-inch diameter 10ksi 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 6,500 feet 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.
