When it comes to making marginal offshore oil and gas fields economically viable, SoluForce pipeline solutions offer a number of advantages over steel and other flexible options.
Light, strong, durable and reliable – and with shorter lead times – our pipeline systems are perfect for connecting low-viability wells to nearby platforms, so eliminating the need for a new drilling platform. They are quicker, easier and cheaper to deploy with no welding required, no need for hot permits and no need for specialist pipe-laying barges.
SoluForce pipeline systems are completely corrosion resistant – even in extreme sour service. Our pipes have a smooth bore, which ensures a much lower flow-resistance and improved flow capacity. SoluForce pipes can be used unfilled at a maximum depth of 80 metres/260 feet. Fill them, and they can be used in much deeper water. SoluForce pipelines have been used as a temporary test line at a water depth of 1000 metres/3280 feet.
All SoluForce flexible composite pipeline systems use metal-free fittings, couplings and connectors. Our pipeline systems are therefore resistant to all chemicals involved in various applications, including:
SoluForce Flexible Composite Pipe (FCP also known as Reinforced Thermoplastic Pipe or RTP) solutions are comprehensive yet economic. For example, you can opt for pipes-and-fittings only, or extend this with a range of services and support.
These include installation equipment for rent or purchase, and training of international and local workforces in the use of the SoluForce system. All so you can speed up installation and reduce your labour needs – safely. We can also assist you with project management and help you find the right people for your project. Or a combination of the above.
Because the SoluForce system can be completely non-metallic, including the fitting system, they are scaling- and corrosion free. All SoluForce pipe systems have a smooth bore, which ensures a much lower flow-resistance and improved flow capacity. Moreover, their resistance to third party interference, earthquakes and landslides has been extensively proven and verified.
SoluForce pipes are stabalized on the seabed using locally manufactured steel or concrete blocks. These blocks are easy to handle and manufacture, and make sure that the SoluForce pipe is securely anchered on the seabed. For example, they can also be stabalized on the seabed using an old steel cable.
High performance fitting solution, providing reliable connectability.
Multiple flange ratings are available. All steel parts can be produced according to your material specifications.
