Trendsetter Engineering Inc. reports that it has been awarded a contract for the design, qualification and delivery of a 20K Hydraulic Intervention Connector by HWCG.
The 20K connector is designed to interface with the HWCG 20K capping stack and would be used to conduct flowback or intervention operations after the capping stack has been installed.
“We are thrilled by this recent award from HWCG and look forward to delivering a great product. Trendsetter has been a market leader in developing and delivering products for HP/HT applications, and this project represents yet another milestone for the Trendsetter’s subsea connection system product line,” said Antony Matson, Vice‐President of Projects.
The TC11/7 Hydraulic Intervention Connector will be the latest addition to the company’s connectors portfolio. The TC11/7 Hydraulic Intervention Connector is said to leverage the company’s hub and gasket profiles to provide 7-in. bore access and emergency disconnect capability for service up to 20,000 psi. Trendsetter says that this order marks its fifth unique connection system to be designed, qualified, and delivered to the API 17TR8 HPHT standard. •
