The Trion project, a greenfield deepwater development, includes 24 wells across two phases. Woodside's decision to use Dril-Quip's BigBore IIe Subsea Wellheads will leverage the system's field-proven sealing technology and 2 MM lb. lockdown capacity. The BBIIe system eliminates lockdown sleeves during drilling and production, which can save rig time and reduce costs. Dril-Quip's Villahermosa, Mexico, facility will play a crucial role in supporting the Trion project.

"We are pleased to play a pivotal role in this significant project with Woodside. This partnership underscores the success of our innovative solutions, supporting the milestone of Mexico's first deepwater oil production with the Trion project," stated Don Underwood, Vice President - Subsea Products at Dril-Quip.

Dril-Quip is a developer, manufacturer, and provider of highly engineered equipment, service, and innovative technologies for use in the energy industry.
