Danos to supply boarding valve skids for Appomattox project

Offshore staff

GRAY, Louisiana Shell Offshore Inc. has contracted Danos to fabricate three boarding valve skid assemblies for the deepwater Appomattox project in the Gulf of Mexico.

The project, which will engage five Danos divisions – coatings, fabrication, instrumentation and electrical, project management, and procurement – will begin immediately, and is expected to take about 12 months to complete.

The boarding valve skids will be fabricated at the company’s fabrication facility in Amelia, Louisiana, and shipped to Ingleside, Texas, for integration on the facility topsides. Following integration, the equipment will be installed on a floating production platform about 80 mi (129 km) offshore Louisiana.
