As oil and gas developments move into deep water and harsh, high temperature, high pressure subsea environments, fatigue strength, weight and high performance become critical factors. These conditions create limiting factors for oil rig, platform and subsea component design, deployment and longevity, conditions where existing steel and metal structures require constant protection, maintenance and replacement.
Thermoplastic Composites are set to dominate future offshore development thinking to meet the tough demands of offshore production platforms, semi-subs, FPSOs, subsea tieback infrastructure and high performance risers, jumpers, flowlines, downlines and fluid transfer lines.
High quality materials selection and automated manufacturing methods deliver robust all-weather capabilities, combined with high performance, corrosion and sour service resistance, flexibility and fatigue performance.
Magma Structures develops composite buoyancy modules, air cans, flare booms, helicopter decks, control panels, seabed component protection systems and a range of light weight carbon fibre equipment ancillaries for the oil industry.
Magma also manufactures m-pipe®, a carbon fibre / PEEK composite pipe designed to meet oil and gas exploration, production and well intervention needs in harsh subsea environments, where ease and speed of transport and deployment, weight, reliability and temperature, pressure and sour performance are key.
