Trendsetter Engineering was awarded a contract to design, manufacture and test the industry’s first 20,000 psi valve‐based capping stack. 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.
Trendsetter is a global provider of innovative, fit‐for‐purpose capping stack and containment technology. Most recently, Trendsetter 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. This equipment is currently being stored at Trendsetter Engineering’s facilities in Houston, Texas.
