(WO) – Trendsetter Engineering Inc. has been awarded a contract to provide Esso Exploration and Production Guyana Limited (“ExxonMobil Guyana”) with an order of TC11 Connection Systems. ExxonMobil Guyana plans to use Trendsetter’s innovative clamp connectors on their Gas-to-Energy project in Guyana.

The contract includes Trendsetter’s TCS subsea connectors, hubs, and an assortment of pressure caps and tooling. The contract also includes subsea valves, sourced from Advanced Technology Valve (ATV) in Colico, Italy. The equipment is slated for delivery in mid-2023.

Trendsetter Engineering, Inc. is a privately owned oil and gas service company based in Houston, Texas which provides specialized subsea hardware and offshore service solutions globally, from exploration drilling through abandonment.

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 20” nominal sizes, as well as multi-bore, 400°F and 20,000 psi capabilities.

“Gas-to-Energy is a truly transformational project for the country and people of Guyana and we’re proud to be a part of it,” said Tony Matson, Vice President of Trendsetter Engineering.
