Developing Great People Series: Johnny Fitch

12-Mar-2020

By: The Pipeline

Johnny Fitch never imagined he’d be where he is today. Specifically, that’s Midland, Texas, where it’s not uncommon for a customer to call with an urgent project that needs to be completed in eight days. But in a more general sense, where he is today is working as a construction manager for Danos, a position he’s held for the last 11 years. After decades of rising through the offshore ranks, Johnny finds himself navigating the vast terrain and hectic pace of the oil and gas industry of west Texas and beyond. Read More...

Upholding Our Work Safe Oath

12-Mar-2020

By: Issac Dantin

One of the most valuable learnings that safety has made through the recent years is listening to our employees. We pulled together key field leaders who are loyal, honest and hold integrity to develop our Work Safe Oath. The team of field leaders was challenged with identifying the key elements of the plan that would keep us all safe as we work in and around at-risk areas. Management listened to their voices and put the plan into action. Read More...

Sonny Romero Invokes Stop Work Authority

11-Mar-2020

By: Nick LeBlanc

On behalf of the Danos HSE group, we would like to thank Sonny Romero for his use of Stop Work Authority (SWA) out on Murphy Medusa. Typically, when we see a SWA card, it is from one Danos team member communicating to another Danos team member. It is great to see Sonny recognize an individual who works for another company, not just as a third party guy, but as a guy who is working as a team trying to achieve the same goal. He also stopped that individual as he was getting into his barricaded work area to explain why it was barricaded off and the hazards associated with that work space. We appreciate Sonny's efforts and for not being hesitant to speak up. Read More...

Daylight Saving Time Begins!

05-Mar-2020

By: Tara Morvant

​Set your clocks forward one hour on Sunday, March 8, 2020!

While we think of Daylight Saving as just a minor inconvenience that reminds us that stoves have clocks that need to be changed, it actually has an interesting back story.

1: We First Started Observing Daylight Saving In 1918

Daylight Saving was first established on a Federal level in the 1960s, but it’s been around far longer than that. Back during World War I, in order to conserve fuel, America adhered to a Daylight Saving schedule, which was called “Fast Time.” It was not popular, and Congress ended up overriding President Wilson’s veto to abolish DST once the war ended. It still popped up in certain regional areas, and during World War II, but while a federal standard didn’t come about until 1966, the idea behind Daylight Saving is much older. In fact…

Jacob Trynovich Helps Customer Appalachia

05-Mar-2020

By: Rene Vidrine

Recently, customer Appalachia attempted to purchase sand trap trailers for a budget that would soon close, but they found themselves unsuccessful in reaching the vendor. They discovered that the vendor shut down in the region, and no contacts were valid. This jeopardized the opportunity to get the equipment without affecting operational business.

Danos Senior Material Coordinator Jacob Trynovich took matters into his own hands by reaching out to contacts from previous deals. He requested a quote from Shell CP and provided it to the projects team at Appalachia to review.
