Shell Contracts Danos for Enchilada Services

Wednesday, June 12, 2019

US-based oilfield services provider Danos said it has been awarded multiple contracts from Shell to provide integrated operations on its Enchilada platform in the US Gulf of Mexico.

Danos said its production, construction, scaffolding and coatings service lines are all working on the asset, located 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,” said the company’s owner Mark Danos.

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 multiple skill sets, including 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.

In addition to work on Enchilada, Danos has been awarded another Shell contract for coatings services on the Perdido spar, the world’s deepest, located 200 miles off the coast of Texas. The contract, which will employ nine new positions, also begins this month, Danos said.
