Trendsetter Trident Intervention System

Well-Safe has awarded a contract to Trendsetter Engineering for the utilisation of the Trident Intervention System and technical services for abandonments in the UK, North Sea.

The system will be deployed from the Well-Safe Guardian rig to conduct a multi-well P&A campaign for an estimated 320 day duration.

Trendsetter owns and operates five 15,000 psi subsea intervention systems for hydraulic, riserless light well and intervention riser-based operations. Their flagship intervention system, TRIDENT, utilises advanced technologies to provide high-spec capability in a lightweight and modular package, furthering Trendsetter’s goal of bringing innovation to subsea intervention.

Mike Cargol, Vice President of Rentals & Services for Trendsetter Engineering, commented, “We are excited to work with Well-Safe to bring TRIDENT to the North Sea for plug and abandonment operations. We look forward to providing our value-added intervention services and are eager to identify additional opportunities for collaboration for our two companies.”

Neil Ferguson, Operations Director at Well-Safe Solutions, added, “Trendsetter is an ambitious partner with a strong track record of technical delivery around the world. Adding this capability to the Well-Safe Guardian unlocks considerable operational improvements and time savings for our clients during well intervention operations.”
