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 Classic

Excellent solution for medium to high-pressure fluid transportation

Reinforced with synthetic fibre, SoluForce Classic has a LCLRCRT ranging from 90 bar/ 1305 psi up to 113 bar/ 1639 psi. 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

Pushing the boundries even further, with extremely high pressures and temperatures.

Reinforced with high-strength steel wire, SoluForce Heavy has a Pburst,min ranging from 243 bar/ 3524 psi up to 450 bar/ 6527 psi. The GT (Gas Tight) version has the added benefit of being non-permeable, and the HT (Hight Temperature) version can transport fluids at temperatures of up to 105°C/225ºF – a level of performance unmatched by any other flexible composite pipe available today.

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.
