By: The Pipeline

Of all the aspects of oil and gas production that businesses may focus on — from reservoir quality to keeping job costs low — one area that can be overlooked or underappreciated is the value of accurate hydrocarbon measurement. In this leaner-price environment, many retiring measurement engineers aren’t being replaced. This has left a gap in in-house expertise across the oil and gas industry that many companies are seeking new ways to fill. Read More...

However, last weekend, his 10-year old daughter, Jolie, came up with an idea to not only occupy her time but to also help out during this global crisis. She found an internet video on how to make hand sanitizer and was eager to give it a try.

Sparkless Grinder Training

25-Mar-2020

By: Mike Miller

Recently, the Danos offshore construction crew assigned to the Shell FPSO Turritella conducted training to use a Texas Fuji Tools (TFT) sparkless grinder. The TFT instructor traveled from Houston, Texas, to host a classroom and field training.

The system will be used on an upcoming project to replace scrubbers for the main gas compressors that are welded down on the FPSO. The system was chosen to minimize the need for the weld removal without using hot work, which is the traditional method.

By: The Pipeline

Johnny Fitch never imagined he’d be where he is today.

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...

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...
