Danos Adds Environmental Services
Danos recently added an Environmental Services Division to the company’s collection of oilfield related services, which includes production workforce, construction, fabrication, coatings, instrumentation and electrical, and shorebase and logistics.
Located on the Intracoastal Waterway in Larose, La., the Environmental Services Division provides full-service environmental cleaning – from spill kits to tank cleaning and small releases to large magnitude spills.
Executive Vice President Paul Danos said, “Adding environmental services to our family of capabilities positions Danos to better serve our customers’ oilfield needs. The prime, waterfront location increases our response capabilities while decreasing our response time – critical during an environmental situation.”
Danos’ environmental services team, led by Operations Manager Farrell Lafont, has over 74 years of combined experience in environmental response and is also skilled in plan writing, ground audits, disposal services, product sales and consulting services.
Lafont, a Golden Meadow, La. native, joined Danos in 2013 as an incident manager for BP (BP) during the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, bringing with him 27 years of experience in environmental response. Prior to joining Danos, Lafont held environmental response management positions at ES&H Consulting, Oil Mop and Halliburton.
