Trendsetter Engineering, Inc. has been awarded a contract for module hardware design and overall integration of a subsea well-based High-Integrity Pressure Protection System (HIPPS) for ExxonMobil’s Julia field development within the Gulf of Mexico.

The Julia field is located in 7,500 feet of water approximately 15 miles from the host platform.  The Julia HIPPS is a pressure protection system designed as a contingency to prevent internal damage to downstream subsea equipment should a Julia well encounter higher than predicted pressures.

Delivery of the Julia HIPPS module is scheduled for the first quarter of 2016.

“Trendsetter is very excited to be a part of the Subsea HIPPS Module System project for the GoM. We have a strong history with ExxonMobil, having helped them solve an array of subsea challenges over the past 15 years. We are very pleased to build on this positive relationship with our client.”
