Hello - something like the attached is one way-
The cyan curve is a BlendCrv between two extracted isocurves (White)
That is mirrored in both directions to get a closed loop (with the red curves)
Trim the pipe surfaces

Then BlendSrf with added shapes at all four quadrants. Iā€™d make the side of the blend that is on the curved pipe Tangent, G1, the other end, on the straight pipe can be Curvature , G2 or Tangent, as you think looks best.
