Maritime Developments (MDL) has delivered a new flexible pipe deployment and retrieval system for Magma Global, which is, reportedly, set to reduce the costs and risks of light well intervention for the offshore oil industry.
The m-IDP (integrated deployment package) was unveiled at the company’s assembly and testing facility in Peterhead, at a client open day co-hosted with Magma.
Well intervention project managers and engineers from UK were able to take a close look at the system at the event, before attending a technical session explaining the combined application of the m-IDP system with Magma’s m-pipe, designed for high flow rate, high pressure hydraulic pumping from the back deck of smaller vessels.
The m-IDP is designed specifically for installation, retrieval and storage of 3-inch 15ksi m-pipe – the pipe manufactured by Magma Global. The flexible m-IDP design, allows m-pipe to be installed over the moon pool or side or over the stern of the vessel as required.
The complete package is due to travel to the Gulf of Mexico, with the first deployment expected by the end of 2016.
