Danos has been awarded multiple contracts with Shell Exploration and Production Company to provide integrated operations on its Enchilada platform.
Danos’ production, construction, scaffolding and coatings service lines are all working on the asset, approximately 170 miles southwest of New Orleans.
“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,” owner Mark Danos said in making the announcement.
Approximately 80 Danos employees have been contracted for work on Enchilada. The facility upgrade project, which began in April, is expected to last through November. The project requires welders, fitters, riggers, scaffold builders and project managers. And starting mid-June, Danos will perform coatings remediation on over 90,000 square feet of facility infrastructure and production equipment.
Danos also has been awarded another contract with Shell Exploration and Production Company, a subsidiary of Royal Dutch Shell plc, for coatings services on the Perdido spar, which is the world’s deepest spar, located 200 miles off the coast of Texas. The contract, which will employ nine new positions, also begins this month.
