ExxonMobil contracts Trendsetter for Guyana gas-to-energy project
Texas-based Trendsetter Engineering has been awarded a contract to supply TC11 connection systems to ExxonMobil for their gas-to-energy project in Guyana, it said on May 23.
“We’re delighted to continue our long-standing relationship with ExxonMobil and expand it into the Guyana market,” said Tony Matson, vice president of Trendsetter Engineering. “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.”
The contract includes Trendsetter's TCS subsea connectors, hubs, pressure caps, and tooling. Additionally, subsea valves from Advanced Technology Valve (ATV) in Colico, Italy, are part of the agreement. The equipment is expected to be delivered in mid-2023.
At the core of the TCS is Trendsetter's proprietary TEX metal-to-metal (MTM) gasket system. Trendsetter Engineering introduced its subsea connector and TEX gasket technology to the industry in 2013.
The gas-to-energy project planned by ExxonMobil Guyana involves bringing associated gas from their offshore projects, specifically Liza Phase 1 and Phase 2, to onshore gas processing facilities. A pipeline will be used to transport the natural gas from the offshore projects to the facilities. The pipeline has the capacity to transport up to 50mn ft3/day of natural gas. Once onshore, the gas will undergo processing before being utilised for energy generation.
