Trendsetter Delivers Intervention Solution Off South America

Trendsetter said it has completed another hydraulic intervention project utilizing its 15,000-psi subsea tree injection manifold (STIM) system.

A major operator approached Trendsetter to deliver an intervention solution suitable for use in the abandonment of an ‘unconventional’ subsea well.

The well, located offshore South America, was in approximately 7,300fsw and required hydraulic intervention to both kill the well and to place a lower cement plug near the reservoir.

For this project, Trendsetter was able to engineer and manufacture several bespoke interface components as well as to deploy the STIM system on an integrated mud mat.

The 15K STIM manifold was modified for a deployment on an ROV-operated mud mat, while connecting the system to the well via a high-pressure flexible line.

No VXT adapters were available from the tree OEM within the required timeframe, necessitating Trendsetter to design, fabricate and deploy a custom high-pressure interface adapter that allowed for pumping operations into the wellbore.

Our team was honored to have been selected to provide an intervention solution for this operation,” said Mike Cargol, vice president of Rentals and Services for Trendsetter Engineering. “This project posed a number of unique challenges, all of which were overcome by the team resulting in a near flawless field execution for the operator. The successful completion of this project once again displays Trendsetter’s commitment to our clients and our continued focus to deliver innovative solutions for the intervention market.”
