Trendsetter Engineering Completes Delivery of Shenzi North Subsea Equipment
Trendsetter Engineering, Inc. (TEI) recently delivered two subsea manifolds, two High Integrity Pressure Protection Systems (HIPPS), along with Trendsetter’s field proven TCS clamp connectors to Woodside Energy for use in their Shenzi North Field in the Gulf of Mexico.
Delivery and subsequent start‐up of the two, well‐based HIPPS modules represent the first fully sanctioned and operational subsea HIPPS units in the region. Trendsetter had previously delivered a subsea HIPPS unit to another Operator for use in the Gulf of Mexico.

“We are thrilled to see the successful deployment of Trendsetter’s advanced manifold, HIPPS, and connector technology as part of the Shenzi North Project,” said Ron Downing, President of Trendsetter Engineering. “Trendsetter developed the critical HIPPS manifolds and supported the project through to start‐up. Woodside Energy is an outstanding operator, and we look forward to continuing our excellent working relationship with them on future projects.”

By using HIPPS modules, existing flowlines, risers, and topside facilities can be utilized to cost effectively tie‐in the Shenzi North development to the existing Shenzi TLP. Trendsetter partnered with Proserv for the HIPPS control system and ATV for provision of the HIPPS shutdown valves.
