An ounce of prevention—or a full overhaul

Sponsored by

Everyone knows that preventative maintenance is critical in every industry, yet companies often do the bare minimum to keep business moving. The reality is a lack of service and regular maintenance can be expensive and, even worse, can cost lives. Implementing a good maintenance program increases run-time and reduces the chance of unscheduled downtime, often saving companies thousands of dollars annually.

From a small company founded in 1947, Danos has grown into a trusted strategic partner for oil and gas operators around the globe. Danos is a third-generation family-managed oilfield service provider with 15 service offerings: production workforce, materials management, shorebase and logistics, specialized consultants, regulatory auditing and measurement, project management, automation, instrumentation and electrical, construction, fabrication, coatings, scaffolding, mechanical maintenance, valve and wellhead, and power generation.

Danos’ team of mechanical experts provides a host of preventative maintenance—including diesel, natural gas and slow speed—for onshore and offshore customers. Its mechanics perform quarterly maintenance, repairs, inspections and overhauls on all customer-owned equipment. In addition, coatings, instrumentation and electrical, and construction crews provide maintenance for customers as needed.

It is imperative that oil and gas companies track, monitor and schedule routine maintenance on their equipment. Danos’ highly trained team has the experience to provide peace of mind with their extensive technical knowledge and industry-leading service.

Annual inspection averts major failure

While performing the annual inspection of a natural gas generator on a customer’s offshore platform, the Danos team noticed a strange noise coming from the gear drive on the front of the generator engine.They determined that the engine was damaged internally—resulting in a complete overhaul. Routine annual inspections are more than an item to check off a list—that inspection averted further engine damage and even potential injuries.

Coatings team provides customer cost savings

Using key performance indicators tied to Danos’ Quality Management System, a Danos coatings team saved a customer $2,000 per week with performing regular platform maintenance. Utilizing a daily man hour report, a cost performance index, schedule performance index and contractor efficiency norms, Danos found areas of inefficiencies and actions needed to increase contractor time on tools, while shortening crew work time. They produced a report that provided cost-effective ways to perform and manage these types of projects.
