JSM Team Reaches One Year IFO


By: Ricky Britt

Danos was selected to perform the hook-up & commissioning of Chevron’s Jack St. Malo (JSM) project back in 2013.  What set this project aside from all others was the enormity of JSM, $8.5B deep water, semi-submersible floating structure operating in over 7,000’ of water.  In its long Gulf of Mexico history, this was Chevron’s most complex and expensive capital project ever.  During the course of the project, numerous visits were made offshore by Danos leadership to support the efforts of our people and to recognize them for their outstanding contributions.  The Danos JSM construction crew exceeded customer expectations by delivering a product that came in under budget and timing, in the face of many top-side additions not in the original scope of the project. This success enabled Danos to keep the crew at JSM through the JSM2 tie-back phase and will continue into the facility’s operational and maintenance phases.
