Congratulations to former Danos Intern Evan Knight who recently accepted a job offer from Shell as a subsurface engineer, with an emphasis on petrophysics. Upon Evan's graduation in December, the Raceland, La., native and Central High School alumnus will be stationed in Shell’s New Orleans office.

Evan was brought on temporarily in the summer of 2018 to help input training data. Since then he has continued his petroleum engineering curriculum at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette and interned this summer with Shell in their petrophysics department in New Orleans.

Evan credits his selection as a Shell intern to having Danos as a reference on his resume. In fact, he was asked about it during his exit interview from his Shell internship. He said, “The management and people skills are something that I really learned a lot from the people at Danos. When things don’t go as planned, how you react is how you show your character. Interning with Danos taught me this and how to talk to people in a professional environment.”

It is great to see Danos as an organization developing our people to solve challenges for our customers!
