Danos has been awarded two major contracts with a leading Texas-based natural gas and oil production company for projects in the Delaware Basin. One contract is for fabrication, construction and installation of central tank batteries. The second is for the fabrication, construction and installation of saltwater disposal facilities.
While the facilities are being constructed on site in New Mexico, Danos will pre-fabricate most of the piping in its Larose, La., facility, which is particularly helpful during the winter months when harsh weather can cause project delays, quality concerns and increased driving risks.
“Our fabrication facility environment removes the external factor of the weather, which allows us to be highly efficient,” said owner Eric Danos. “On top of that, these projects are campaign work, where we take the same design and replicate the same process, which enables us to deliver efficiency and cost savings to our customers.”
Danos’ fabrication, construction, and instrumentation and electrical service lines will be utilized for the contracts, the first of which began in early October. Combined, the projects will enlist over 80 Danos employees across the three service lines to complete the work.
Danos has worked in the Permian and Delaware basins since 2012 and has over 500 employees in the area. Headquartered in Gray, La., the company has 3,000 employees with additional office locations in Lafayette, Larose and Amelia, La., and in Houston, Kenedy and Midland, Texas. •
