Trendsetter Engineering successfully completed the design and build of a state-of-the-art capping stack for Wild Well Control. The 18-3/4” 15,000 psi capping stack was designed, manufactured, and assembled within nine months. The cutting edge well capping equipment is designed so that it can be deployed around the world, via air freight or ocean freight, in the event of a subsea well control incident. 

The well capping stack equipment is capable of containing oil wells in depths of 10,000 feet. The capping stack is equipped with four choke outlets, two of which can be converted to flow lines. 

The capping stack was successfully tested at Trendsetter’s facilities in Houston, Texas and will now be delivered to Singapore where it will be readily available should a subsea well control incident occur. 

“Trendsetter was pleased to have the opportunity to work on this project with Wild Well Control. We are very proud that this is Trendsetter’s 11th capping stack to build overall.”
