Danos has announced that it has been chosen by Shell to manufacture three boarding valve skid assemblies for Shell’s deep-water Appomattox project. They will be fabricated at Danos’ Amelia, Louisiana, US, fabrication facility and shipped to Ingleside, Texas for integration.
The project is due to begin immediately, and will engage five Danos divisions: coatings, fabrication, instrumentation and electrical, project management and procurement.
Mark Danos, Construction and Fabrication Division Manager, commented: “Shell and Danos have worked on projects together for the past 44 years. It’s an exciting time. Not only is this a great opportunity for Danos, it will create new jobs at our Amelia facility.”
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.
