GRAY, La. – Danos is pleased to announce that Shell Exploration and Production Company, a subsidiary of Royal Dutch Shell, has awarded a contract to Danos to provide coatings for Shell’s deep-water Appomattox platform in the Gulf of Mexico. The coatings project is expected to last approximately six months.
“Danos has a history of high performance with Shell that goes back nearly 50 years,” said owner Mark Danos. “We believe our relationship with Shell and our shared commitment to safe, competitive delivery resulted in this contract, and we look forward to continuing to partner with Shell.”
This is not Danos’ first experience with the Appomattox project. Danos fabricated three boarding valve skids and one service line skid out of its Amelia facility for Appomattox, which required support from the company’s project management, fabrication, coatings and automation service lines.
Located in the Gulf of Mexico 80 miles off the coast of Louisiana, the Appomattox platform is one of Shell’s new deep-water investments in the Gulf and is set to begin production before the end of the decade. Projects like this are essential to the economy of Louisiana and the Gulf Coast as they provide much needed jobs to the area and contribute to domestic energy security.
