HOUSTON – Dril-Quip, Inc., has announced the successful installation and completion of two 15,000-psi HorizontalBore subsea trees at the Woodside Shenzi North oil and gas field in the US Gulf of Mexico, in collaboration with global controls technology company Proserv.

Dril-Quip says that its 15,000-psi HorizontalBore subsea tree is the latest modular designed subsea production system that accommodates numerous completion configuration possibilities. This tree is said to offer the flexibility of running and pulling the upper completion without disturbing the tree-to-wellhead connection or the flowline connection to the tree.

Shenzi North is a two-well subsea tieback to the Shenzi TLP in the Green Canyon protraction area offshore Louisiana. With production capacity of up to 30,000 boe/d, Shenzi North is expected to start commercial production in 2024.
