Danos has been awarded a contract by Shell Pipeline Company LP to provide significant upgrades to its Houma facility.
Danos' instrumentation and electrical team will install a new, elevated motor control system for the company. This will control the mainline shipping pumps and associated controls supporting Shell's commitment to long-term reliability of its assets.
Work started earlier this fall and will run through late 2021.
“Because we have a long-standing history with Shell Pipeline, our crews are familiar with the work and with the facility. This allows us to provide a turnkey solution for our valued customer,” said Owner Mark Danos.
Danos also supported Phase 1 of the facility upgrades. Roughly 30 Danos and partner employees will be utilized to complete work in Phase 2.
In addition, Danos has been awarded a significant contract with a midstream services provider to deliver facility upgrades to all automation and control systems for two platforms in the Gulf.
Danos will also enhance the human machine interface, which controls facility operations. Work on the platform began in August and pre-installtion work is expected to be completed by the end of 2020.
While Danos has been providing automation and instrumentation and electrical services for decades, the company established each as independent service lines in 2014 after Danos acquired a control system company with an extensive 30-year history. Danos’ energy services offerings now include automation, instrumentation and electrical, mechanical maintenance, power generation, and valve and wellhead.
