Tapered stress joint

April 16, 2013

A new tapered-stress joint is under development by UK-based pipe design and manufacturing firm Magma Global. The company is working alongside major oil companies Chevron, ExxonMobil, Shell, Statoil, and Petrobras, to develop the joint using Magma’s m-pipe technology.

The project will focus on a 15,000psi 8in. taper stress joint made by combining polyetheretherketone (PEEK) polymer and carbon fibers to create a high-strength, lightweight pipe that is resistant to corrosion and fatigue.
