James Simmonite, Energy Director at Victrex, commented:
"Our strategic relationship with Magma Global will help to further facilitate the industry’s move into a new era of enhanced capabilities, coupled with reduced costs, in extreme subsea operations”.

Martin Jones, CEO at Magma, said:
“The oil & gas market remains challenging, but the application of m-pipe in areas where it can deliver cost savings for operators, through simpler design, easier deployment and in whole life costs, means it should be the technology of choice for demanding subsea applications".

Continued progress of the company last year also included the launch of a leading rental system for hydraulic pumping for intervention, early production and temporary riser replacement, consisting of m-pipe with an Integrated Deployment Package and crew.

Victrex PEEK for Thermoplastic Composite Pipes

With cooperation between the two companies continuing to grow, both are joining Smithers Rapra in hosting, on Wednesday, February 22nd, a free webinar on the use of Victrex’s polymer in the construction of thermoplastic composite pipes (TCPs) for subsea environments.

  • In particular, the webinar will outline the technical advancements now made possible by the VICTREX PEEK-based m-pipe from Magma, including the engineering, performance and commercial benefits. 
  • The webinar will focus on SURF (Subsea Umbilicals Risers Flowlines), subsea jumpers, and subsea connectivity. 
  • The qualification process for m-pipe will be described, as well as the outstanding properties of PEEK polymer which, together, make it an excellent fit for subsea applications.
