Danos wins Gulf of Mexico deal with Shell

Danos, a Louisiana-based oil and gas service company, has been awarded a contract with Shell to provide maintenance services on three Gulf of Mexico production hubs and associated subsea infrastructure.

Danos said that it would, under the terms of the contract, provide project management, construction, automation, fabrication, and scaffolding services on Shell’s Auger and Ram Powell tension-leg platforms and the Enchilada and Salsa fixed-leg platforms.

The company added that it would mobilize nearly 100 Louisiana-based employees for this project.

Mark Danos, vice president of project services for Danos, said: “Danos is committed to providing world-class, competitive project management services to our clients like Shell so they can continue to safely operate their Gulf of Mexico deepwater assets. With this contract, we are providing Shell with a fully integrated team that can maximize efficiencies and share best practices across facilities.”

Danos and Shell have worked together for more than 46 years on developing the Gulf of Mexico’s oil and gas resources. Danos is also under contract to support Shell’s Unconventionals business in the Permian and Appalachian regions.
