For more than 70 years, Danos has been a strategic partner for oil and gas operators in the Gulf of Mexico and around the world. The second and third generation of the Danos family have kept the company family-owned and managed, providing responsive end-to-end integrative service solutions to its clients.
Danos offers both land-based and offshore customers a broad range of production services. Services include automation, coatings, construction, fabrication, instrumentation and electrical, mechanical maintenance, production workforce, project management, scaffolding, shorebase and logistics, and valve and wellhead. Danos has 3,000 employees who conduct operations across the Gulf of Mexico and the North American shale plays.
Danos has seen steady operational growth over the last seven decades. In 1947, Allen Danos Sr. and his brother in law, Syriaque Curole, started a small tugboat company, Danos & Curole. Over the next seven decades the company, which became Danos in 2012, steadily grew and built up its operational and service portfolio that operators depend upon today.
In the 1950s, Danos & Curole expanded operations to include crew boats. By the 1960s, two new services lines – coatings and shorebase labor were added. The 1970s and 1980s saw the incorporation of construction and fabrication service lines and saw the development of the first self-elevating lift boat. The 1990s brought international expansion in West Africa and the South China Sea. In 2012, Danos managed a significant portion of the Macondo response. Danos later expanded operations to include work in the Marcellus, Permian Basin and Delaware Basin shale plays while expanding its list of service offerings.
Danos’ purpose, values and high-performance cultural traits are a fundamental part of how it conducts its business, and how it is able to deliver solutions safely, on time and within budget. And by hiring and promoting employees that embrace its high-performance culture, Danos can ensure operational and mission cohesion from top-to-bottom. Safety and being a strong steward of the environment is a paramount part of the Danos success story.
The Danos culture and record of safety and environmental success has been consistently recognized. Danos is a four-time recipient of the National SAFE Award from the U.S. Department of the Interior and was the inaugural winner of the National Ocean Industries Association (NOIA) Safety in Seas Culture of Safety Award. Danos has earned several Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR) awards. Top operators, including ExxonMobil and Chevron, have also recognized the achievements of Danos through their own awards.
