HOUSTON Proserv Controls and Trendsetter Engineering have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to jointly market and supply integrated subsea hardware and controls.

The MoU means that Proserv will now be able to incorporate its energy production control systems and related services alongside Trendsetter’s pressure protection systems, including its high integrity pressure protection system (HIPPS), connection systems, and manifolds.

The two companies are working together on BHP’s expansion of the Shenzi North field in the Gulf of Mexico. Trendsetter will deliver its SIL3 rated HIPPS module equipped with Proserv’s subsea controls technology.

According to Proserv, one key component of the MoU’s value proposition sees the two companies harnessing the coexistence and backwards compatibility capabilities of its subsea electronics technology to supply and retrofit HIPPS and manifold mounted controls on existing systems.
