Danos continues to grow in the services it provides to the oil and gas industry.

The company announced this week that it has been awarded multiple contracts with Shell Exploration and Production Company, a subsidiary of Royal Dutch Sell, plc, to provide integrated operations on its Enchilada platform. 

Danos’ production, construction, scaffolding and coatings service lines are all working on the platform, which is about 170 miles southwest of New Orleans in the Gulf of Mexico.

About 80 Danos employees have been contracted for work on the Enchilada. The facility upgrade project began in April and will last through November. 

The project requires multiple skill sets, including welders, fitters, riggers, scaffold builders and project managers.

In mid-June, Danos will perform coatings remediation on more than 90,000 square feet of facility infrastructure and production equipment.

“By working together on the same platform, Danos can integrate operations and share project resources to be more efficient, minimizing both the risk and cost involved,” said owner Mark Danos. 

In addition to the work on the Enchilada, Danos has also been awarded another contract with Shell Exploration and Production Company for coatings services on the Perdido spar, which is the world’s deepest spar — 200 miles off the coast of Texas. 

That work also begins this month.
