Trendsetter Gets HPHT Capping Stack Contract
Trendsetter Engineering has been awarded a contract from an undisclosed client to design, manufacture and test, reportedly, the industry’s first 20,000 psi valve-based capping stack.
According to the company, this capping stack will be capable of containing high pressure, high temperature subsea oil wells in the event of a subsea well-control incident.
The project includes the development and qualification of Trendsetter’s 20,000 psi subsea flowline connection system and various other components.
The 20,000 psi capping stack will be Trendsetter’s 12th capping device to date.
In addition, Trendsetter, most recently, completed work on a containment toolkit that can be deployed to minimize the environmental impact of a subsea well incident, as it can be air freighted anywhere in the world.
