A Little Trip to Ship Shoal


By: Nicole Williams

The SS208 (Ship Shoal) asset had four of our service lines working at the same time. Environmental, Fabrication, Construction and Coatings. This is a testament to the volume of experience that Team Danos can bring to a customer's assets. Thanks to all the crews representing us on this facility.

Fred Azema (Danos Environmental Services) doing some air monitoring. Fred is checking atmospheric conditions for health and hazards: H2s (hydrogen sulfide), benzene, CO (carbon monoxide), LEL (lower explosive limit) and O2 (oxygen) levels. The team is checking mainly for LEL (flammability of the air in the tank) so that our construction crew can cut it up safely and make scrap metal. (...with a side of acronym insight!)

Our Environmental Services team leaders Fred Azema, Farrell Lafont, Jacob Coffman and Kerry Guidry together have over 72 years experience in their field.

Oil & Gas fields are named and then sectioned into blocks for reference and leasing purposes. SS208 is located in the Ship Shoal field at Block 208.

While in a meeting, the team noticed a can that was rusted, pressurized, corrosive containing oven cleaner near a heat source. The can was disposed of in a proper manner by the company representative.
