By Keefe Borden21 July 2021
Galileo Compression USA has named Randy Larkin as its vice president of sales. With more than 35 years diverse experience in oil and gas midstream and energy services in technical, business development, and executive management roles, Larkin will support the growth of sales and distribution of the company’s suite of compression solutions.
Galileo Compression USA was officially launched in April 2021 by Galileo Technologies, which has operated in the United States for more than 10 years in various segments of the energy industry outside of compression leasing. The new services business division will build upon the technology solutions and manufacturing capabilities of its parent company to provide its customers with cutting edge results for production enhancement, gas lift, gathering and transportation needs – all in a rental fleet model.
“As we continue to grow and scale our business in the Marcellus Formation, Permian Basin and across the country, we are very fortunate to have Randy bring his entrepreneurial spirit and technical experience to help us continue to expand and reach new customers,” said Ronald Foster, president and COO of Galileo Compression USA remarked.
As president of LHF Midstream Partners, Larkin built a service organization to support several midstream operators to optimize large horsepower compression stations. Prior to LHF, he served as vice president of business development and engineering for E2 Energy Services, a former affiliate of Enlink Midstream. In that role, he was responsible for commercial development and execution of midstream projects in the Permian and Marcellus shale plays. Randy holds a Bachelor of Science degree in mechanical engineering from the University of Texas.
“I am thrilled to join the Galileo Compression USA team,” said Larkin. “Our innovative approach to ESG with clean natural gas brings great benefits and outstanding value to our customers while helping us take better care of our environment.”
Utilizing a services approach that includes maintenance, fluids and monitoring, Galileo Compression USA provides upstream producers and midstream operators the option of keeping an asset-light balance sheet. From its facilities in Middlesex, N.J., and Midland, Texas, the company leases compressor packages ranging from 100 to 2000 hp delivering a suite of services tailored to the individual client’s needs.
