CECO Celebrates 40th Anniversary of Randy Anderson’s Distinguished Service to the Oil & Gas Industry

Randy Anderson, CECO Training & Technical Services Principal Consultant, celebrates his 40th year of service in the Oil & Gas industry. Anderson is one of the leading compressor and engine experts and is considered one of the top trainers in the industry.

Anderson began his career at Panhandle Eastern Pipeline in 1974 where he became the Senior Engineer for Plant Operations and Maintenance at Panhandle Eastern, Trunkline and Duke Energy. He left Duke in order to establish his own company, Anderson Consulting, Training & Testing (ACTT) in 1996. CECO acquired ACTT three years later, creating the CECO Training & Technical services division (CTTS).

CTTS has become the industry leader for training and technical services in the natural gas and petrochemical industries where compression is operated and maintained. The division has grown to include a robust list of compressor and engine training courses, workbooks, engine software, compressor performance testing and analysis services. CTTS now offers online training to customers as well.

Anderson is one of top technical trainers in the industry on engine and compressor operation, maintenance, and analysis. Over the 40 years of his career, he has managed and implemented numerous innovative solutions, including preventive maintenance and equipment analysis programs.

Manny Angulo, CTTS Senior Engineer, stated, “I am fortunate to have known Randy for almost 25 years and have learned more from him that he will ever know. Randy has been successful throughout his career by presenting very technical information in an easy to understand manner from many memorable personal experiences.  His progression from a day laborer at a compressor station in Kansas to senior engineer on the corporate technical staff in Houston provided the solid foundation in operations and maintenance practices while he mastered and then developed complicated performance measures.”

CECO CEO Bruce Hotze said, “Randy is widely known and highly respected throughout the industry. Randy’s expertise in compressors and engines is unsurpassed by anyone I have ever met. His unique ability to convey difficult technical details of compressor and engine operations, his quick wit and his great stories leave vivid memories with students in his courses. Anyone who maintains compressors and engines could use Randy’s expertise on improving performance, reducing costs and increasing output.”

A native Kansas, Vietnam veteran, avid hunter and fisherman, Randy and his wife have resided in Houston, Texas, for over 20 years.
