Magma Global is pleased to announce the completion of the first DNV GL qualification of a Thermoplastic Composite Pipe (TCP) product under DNVGL-RP-F119. Third party verification has been provided by DNV GL. The qualification covers m-pipe for dynamic surface to seabed applications.
Ramin Moslemian, Project Manager, DNV GL, said: “The DNVGL-RP-F119 Thermoplastic Composite Pipe was developed in conjunction with oil and gas operators and contractors to specifically meet the needs for cost-efficient and reliable solutions.” “There is a great potential for TCPs to deliver lightweight, non-corrosive pipeline solutions, and qualification according to DNVGL-RP-F119 provides a robust assessment of the operational integrity of TCPs, especially under challenging deep water environments.”
David Charlesworth Head of Engineering for Magma said: “We have worked very hard to achieve this qualification for m-pipe and are delighted to have secured DNV GL’s third party verification. This qualification involved extensive materials testing, design process development and verification along with considerable full scale testing.”
“This qualification forms the foundation for further qualification scopes which are already underway, covering larger diameter, long term production applications. My personal thanks goes to the DNV GL team who have worked closely with us to expedite this qualification”
