LAROSE –Monday, Dec. 15, Danos will begin providing field support for Bristow’s six Gulf of Mexico bases, five in Louisiana – Galliano, Houma, Intercoastal City, New Iberia and Venice – and one in Galveston, Texas.
“Partnering with Bristow to provide field support is a great opportunity for Danos,” said Hank Danos, president and CEO. “Like Danos, Bristow has an exceptional safety reputation, and a long history of providing outstanding service to the oil and gas industry.”
The internal announcement was made on Nov. 14, 2014, when executives from both companies met with Bristow employees to begin the month-long transition process. Bristow as well as current sub-contractor employees were given the opportunity to become Danos employees.
“Bristow chose Danos as our field support contractor as part of our ‘Change, Win, Grow Strategy,’” said Robert Phillips, director of Bristow North America. “We believe this partnership will better support the future growth of our Gulf of Mexico business.”
The long-term contract, which covers six bases and 70 employees, was done without disruption to operations.
