If you are talking about the flexible section either side of those two metal pipes, it looks to me like a crimped joint and not removable at that point.
If you take the pipe off at the nearest normal joints and go to a hydraulic hose specialist the sort that do digger ram hoses etc, they have a large crimping machine and various fitting so should be able to duplicate it. Make sure all fittings are pointing in the right direction as they don't like to be turned afterwards.

Yhe, I found out the hard way that it does not came off. Had to go caveman on the pipe and Saw it off. There is a metal fitting so Im going to replace only the rubber line and put a hose clamp on it.
I was very confused on how to remove it.
I followed the line all the way to the tank. And on my car its a mix off soft rubber line to solid metal, to hard plastic and ends on that fitting. For what i could tell i had to remove the all line? But the line passes behind the sub frame O.O, so I had to stop one side of ir.
So the blade saw it was..
Thanks you bugsymike for the reply.

Your welcome:) .
If you are put a hose and clamps on it, be sure it is well secure and up to the job, fuel leaking on a hot engine probably not a good idea!
