Helix Energy Solutions Group Inc. has joined Trendsetter Engineering Inc. in a global partnership on Nov. 8 to provide integrated hydraulic intervention services for subsea wells and flowlines.
The new partnership will integrate Trendsetter’s 15,0000psi subsea tree injection manifold (15K STIM) and experienced personnel into Helix’s state-of-the-art fleet of well intervention vessels and equipment used to perform well services globally. Helix’s well intervention vessels include the Q4000, the Q5000, the Q7000, the Seawell, the Well Enhancer, and two chartered monohull vessels, the Siem Helix 1 and the Siem Helix 2.
“This collaboration with Helix allows us to streamline contracting, improve operational efficiency and mitigate the operational and financial risks typically associated with hydraulic intervention operations.” Mike Cargol, vice president of rentals and services for Trendsetter Engineering, said. “Although the initial focus is hydraulic intervention, we are excited about what the future holds for Helix and Trendsetter and look forward to collaborating further in order to provide additional value-added services to our clients.”
The evolution of frac plugs has helped producers go to new lengths while reducing operational time and risk.
To create a more efficient cleanout operation—not eliminate cleanouts altogether—a dissolvable plug must be economical.
A new plug design cuts completion costs and reduces time to production.
