Andrew Johnson to Lead HDR's Oil, Gas & Chemicals Practice
Andrew Johnson has been promoted to lead HDR's oil, gas and chemicals practice. Based in Austin, Texas, he partners with clients on technical project execution, resource allocation and carrying out strategic initiatives.
“As the oil, gas and chemical industries work to address ambitious decarbonization goals, I’m in a unique position to help them achieve compliance by matching their needs with the right people,” Johnson said. “It’s inspiring to work with clients and colleagues on the challenge of executing complex projects that integrate sustainability while enabling communities to thrive.”
Johnson’s passion and experience are on display in every project he’s worked on from multibillion-dollar international projects to local sustainability projects. He partners with major oil and gas clients on project development and risk identification/mitigation to execute complex, multidisciplinary projects. Recently, Johnson led HDR’s team in the development and execution of Black Hills Energy Natural Bridge Gas Pipeline project, a 35-mile pipeline with two greenfield metering and regulation stations.
Johnson holds a master’s degree in geotechnical engineering, and a bachelor’s in civil and environmental engineering from South Dakota State University. In 2019, he was named a Top Young Professional by ENR Texas and Louisiana.
An active member of the Western Energy Institute and the American Gas Association, Johnson said, “I very much enjoy the opportunity to support our industry by exchanging lessons learned with people of all ages, and working collaboratively to develop new technology and evolve the energy market.”
