Danos Wins Shell Contract

Danos has been selected by Shell Offshore Inc. to fabricate three boarding valve skid assemblies for its deepwater Appomattox project. 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.

Shell and Danos have worked on projects together for the past 44 years,” said Mark Danos, construction and fabrication division manager. “It’s an exciting time. Not only is this a great opportunity for Danos, it will create new jobs at our Amelia facility.”

The boarding valve skids will be fabricated at Danos’ Amelia, Louisiana fabrication facility and shipped to Ingleside, Texas for integration on the facility topside. Following integration, the equipment will be installed on a floating production platform located in deep-water Gulf of Mexico, about 80 miles off the Louisiana coast.
