Danos spruces up Shell’s Olympus tension leg platform

Olympus TLP

Oilfield service provider Danos has completed a painting and coating project on the Shell-operated Olympus tension leg platform (TLP) in the Gulf of Mexico.

Danos said on Tuesday that the project was completed ahead of schedule and nearly $1 million under budget.

The company added that the Louisiana-based paint crew worked 31,000 man-hours which included suspended cleaning and painting activity on the platform’s underside.

Mark Danos, VP of project services for Danos, said: “For nearly 50 years Danos has worked with Shell to help keep its offshore platforms, people, and the environment safe.”

For this campaign, Danos employees applied nearly 1,500 gallons of paint that is specially designed to protect all parts of the Olympus platform exposed to wind and water. Overall, the project involved painting more than the equivalent of 30 houses averaging 2,300 square feet in size.

Shell Exploration & Production Company, a subsidiary of Royal Dutch Shell, awarded Danos the contract for painting and coating work on its Olympus production hub earlier this year.

The company has previously done coating work for Shell at its Cognac, South Timbalier-300, West Delta 143, Olympus, Mars, and Brutus facilities. Since its first project in 2012, Danos’ coatings teams working on Shell projects have grown from a six-person crew to more than 36 people at locations across the Gulf of Mexico.
