Andrew Oracheski – COO
Born in Wainwright, Alberta, Andrew has spent most of his life in Lloydminster working in the oil and gas industry. It is pretty much the only field that Andrew knows and he knows it very well.
His experience started with working at Weatherford Leamco-Ruthco during his high school summers since 1998. Upon completing a Business Management Diploma at NAIT, Andrew came back to Lloydminster and began his full time career with Platinum Pumpjack Services in 2002. He started as a crane operator and through the next eleven years, he moved on to become a field foreman and finally the area manager. This period allowed Andrew to hone his skills and gained valuable experience especially with Pumping Units.
In 2013, Schlumberger acquired Platinum Pumpjack Services and appointed Andrew their Lloydminster area manager of their Artificial Lift Production Group. Over the next few years, Schlumberger acquired several other production companies and identified Andrew as the ideal person to take charge of their entire central region service centers. His knowledge and expertise expanded to include Automation, Pumping Units, Sucker Rods, PCP, Power Units and Downhole Reciprocating Pumps. It wouldn’t be long before Andrew became the Operations Manager for Schlumberger Lift Solutions Canada.
The start of 2018 saw Andrew make a major decision, major for Redhead Artificial Lift that is. He came aboard as the Chief Operating Officer and thus the company gained the person that best understands the operation and service needs of the Canadian oil patch. Redhead Artificial Lift is primed and set for the future.
