Flexible pipeline systems for offshore oil and gas

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.

High-quality SoluForce flexible composite pipeline systems are typically used in these offshore oil and gas applications:

  • High-pressure water injection lines
  • Oil and gas transportation flow lines
  • Gas and oil gathering lines
  • Well intervention
  • Landing/ export lines

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:

  • H2S
  • CO2
  • Strong inorganic acids like HCl and H2SO4
  • Strong alkaline materials, including NaOH, KOH and NH2 solutions
  • Anti-corrosion additives
  • Mineral salts

 

SoluForce Heavy pipes can withstand very high pressures and are ideal where the need to operate at high pressures is a priority.

SoluForce Light: L450/L540 (GT)

The perfect solution for low to medium-pressure fluid transportation

SoluForce Light has all the same properties as SoluForce Classic, at lower pressures. SoluForce Light is reinforced with synthetic fibre tape and has a maximum operating pressure of 36 bar for the 4-inch L450 pipe, and 29 bar for the 6-inch L540 pipe. The GT (Gas Tight) version has the added benefit of being non-permeable.

SoluForce Classic: M480/M570 (GT)

Excellent solution for medium to high-pressure fluid transportation

Reinforced with synthetic fibre tape, it has a maximum operating pressure of 90 bar for the 4-inch M480 pipe and 72 bar for the 6-inch M570 pipe. Being fully metal-free, it is ideal for even the toughest applications. The GT (Gas Tight) version has the added benefit of being non-permeable.

SoluForce Heavy: H415/H515 (HT/GT)

Pushing the boundries even further

SoluForce Heavy provides an excellent, flexible solution for high-pressure hydrocarbon transport. Reinforced with high-strength steel wire, SoluForce Heavy has a maximum operating pressure of 150 bar for the 4-inch H415 pipe and 150 bar for the 6-inch H515 pipe – and up to 181 bar in sweet applications. The GT (Gas Tight) version has the added benefit of being non-permeable. Heavy HT (Hight Temperature) can transport fluids at temperatures of up to 85°C/185ºF – a level of performance unmatched by any other flexible composite pipe available today.
