HOUSTON Trendsetter Engineering Inc. has introduced the Trident intervention system.

It has been designed for rapid reconfiguration in the field, providing the flexibility to conduct intervention riser, riserless wireline intervention, and hydraulic stimulation operations all with one system.

According to the company, this modular approach to intervention will result in reduced well maintenance costs, improved production, and increased intervention operational efficiency.

The new system, initially delivered in the intervention riser system configuration, provides a 6⅜-in. through bore and is suitable for all types of well intervention operations up to 15,000 psi and in water depths up to 10,000 ft (3,048 m).

Trident’s well control package (WCP) is built around the shear/seal design of the Interventek Revolution valves, providing a safety system in a compact package.

With an overall WCP stack‐up height less than 16 ft (5 m) and a combined emergency disconnect package / lower riser package weight of just over 67,000 lbs, the new system is said to be suited for rapid mobilization to any region and integration into almost any rig of availability. This includes many older generation MODUs which may be limited in both crane capacity and tree cart stack‐up height.
