ABERDEEN, UKTrendsetter Engineering has commissioned Interventek to supply further 6-in., 15,000-psi (1,034-bar), open-water Revolution shear-and-seal valves.

Last year Interventek delivered an initial consignment comprising single and dual-cavity variants, along with systems integration testing within Trendsetter’s new 15,000-psi, TRIDENT modular subsea intervention system.

Trendsetter now plans further systems to service growing demand for well interventions and subsea completions.

The latest set of Revolution valves will be for sour service deployment, with dynamic valve bore components featuring high-strength, corrosion-resistant alloys.

According to Interventek, the compact design facilitates integration into more modern, lightweight systems, leading to cost and efficiency savings.

In addition, the Revolution valves’ internal cutting and sealing components are separated, at the same time complying with API-17G qualification criteria.

Mike Cargol, vice president of Rentals and Services at Trendsetter, said the valves had helped his company achieve size and weight reductions of up to 60% compared to alternative products.

The system, he added, can be mobilized swiftly anywhere, reconfigured to accommodate hydraulic, riserless light well or open-water risered interventions, and integrated into a vessel or rig of opportunity with no special modifications.
