The Equinor project began in late 2018 and employs personnel on the floating drilling and production structure located in Mississippi Canyon block 941 at a water depth of about 4,000 ft (1,219 m).
This is Danos’ second job with Equinor, as it was awarded a contract for coatings maintenance on the Titan platform last fall.
In addition, Danos has received a multi-year contract for production operations with another major oil and gas producer in the Gulf of Mexico.
As a result of these recent contract awards, the company has increased its production workforce by about 150 new employees. The majority of these new positions are production operators who will be working on the Gulf Coast, with projects spanning from Galveston, Texas, to Venice, Louisiana.
