Houston, Texas – Talos Energy successfully deployed and installed a flexible well jumper using Trendsetter Engineering’s TC7 clamp connectors and TEX gaskets to connect the Mt. Providence subsea well to the Pompano template system. The TC7 clamp connectors were supplied as part of a larger scope of work where Trendsetter Engineering developed new hardware, including a template adapter module and subsea tree connector porch, to assist Talos Energy facilitate long term growth from their existing assets.
The Trendsetter Connection System (TCS) is a family of subsea connector solutions developed to meet industry needs for reliable, innovative connector products. The heart of the TCS is Trendsetter’s proprietary TEX metal‐to‐metal (MTM) gasket system. Trendsetter first introduced its subsea connector and TEX gasket technology to the industry in 2013. These include options from 2” through 16” nominal sizes, as well as multi‐bore, 400°F and 20,000 psi capabilities.
“Trendsetter’s high pressure and high temperature connectors will set a new standard for performance and ease of operability in the most difficult of subsea applications. Through development in conjunction with industry operators, these connectors overcome real‐world challenges under the harshest operating conditions.” said Chris Perry, Product Line Manager, Trendsetter Connection Systems.
The Mt. Providence well, located in 1,850 feet water depth, has since been successfully commissioned and is currently in production. Trendsetter Engineering has been awarded an additional template adapter module to facilitate future tiebacks to the Pompano template.
