Navigator Energy Services LLC, a full-service midstream provider, has added Albert Johnson to its senior leadership team as vice president of business development. An energy industry veteran with nearly 20 years of experience, Johnson will assist in leading Navigator’s business development efforts, including the development of corporate growth strategy and structure, commercial activities, and product scheduling.
Johnson has most recently been working with customers of Navigator’s Big Spring Gateway Pipeline, a crude oil gathering and transmission system of more than 400 miles serving the Midland Basin region. The system, which is currently under construction, spans Martin, Glasscock, Howard, and Midland counties in Texas and provides approximately 160,000 barrels per day of throughput capacity, up to 450,000 barrels of crude oil storage, and access to four markets via major interconnects. Navigator anticipates that initial service on the Big Spring Gateway Pipeline system will begin in September.
Prior to Navigator, Johnson served as director of business development for Sunoco Logistics Partners LP, where he was responsible for business development and asset management activities across the company’s pipeline system related to the marketing, gathering, and mainline transportation of crude oil. During his five years with Sunoco, Johnson participated in, or led, contract negotiations resulting in pipeline and terminal projects totaling more than $3 billion. Prior to Sunoco, Johnson spent 10 years with Phillips 66 and ConocoPhillips in various roles in terminal and refinery operations.
Johnson has served on the board of directors of West Texas Gulf Pipe Line Co. and on the management committee for SunVit Pipeline LLC. He holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in history from the University of Texas at Austin and a Master of Business Administration degree with a focus on finance from the Jones Graduate School of Business at Rice University.
