Danos’ production, construction, scaffolding and coatings service lines are all working on the asset, located approximately 170 miles southwest of New Orleans, the company said on Wednesday.

“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 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. 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 contract with Shell for coatings services on the Perdido spar, which is the world’s deepest spar, located 200 miles off the coast of Texas. The contract, which will employ nine new positions, also begins this month.

“Many of our crews have a level of familiarity with Shell assets and a high level of customer service that our clients have come to expect,” said Danos.
