Danos has been awarded a contract by Shell Exploration and Production Company, a subsidiary of Royal Dutch Shell, to provide mechanical and automation maintenance services for three of its production hubs and associated subsea infrastructure located in the Gulf of Mexico.
“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,” said Mark Danos, vice president of project services for Danos. “With this contract, we are providing Shell with a fully integrated team that can maximize efficiencies and share best practices across facilities.”
Under the terms of the contract, Danos will provide project management, construction, automation, fabrication and scaffolding services for Shell’s Auger and Ram Powell tension-leg platforms and the Enchilada and Salsa fixed-leg platforms. Danos will mobilize nearly 100 Louisiana-based employees for this project.
This contract represents the latest chapter in the longstanding partnership between the two companies. Danos and Shell have worked together for more than 46 years to safely and competitively develop the Gulf of Mexico’s oil and gas resources to help meet the world’s growing energy demand. Danos is also under contract to support Shell’s Unconventionals business in the Permian and Appalachian regions, which is an important source of natural gas for the country and region.
