Leadership Team

Keith Idland

Manager - Finance, Sales, Safety

Keith is a life-long learner motivated by a desire to understand and improve complex processes. At 26 years old, he's used his problem solving abilities and work ethic to push himself to succeed at the highest levels in school, sports, and work. Keith graduated from Gonzaga University with honors in Business Administration before going on to get his Masters Degree in Accounting. His work career started in public accounting working for Deloitte where he proved his ability to translate his skills to a work environment. He spent his time at Deloitte working with various oil and gas clients which solidified his desire to get involved in the industry. 


Keith grew up outside the city with a farmer as a mother and an oilfield worker as a father. His dad turned him into a gearhead at a young age, and he's been fixing and rebuilding vehicles for as long as he can remember. In his free time he likes spending time with friends and family enjoying the great outdoors. We would describe Keith as a dedicated professional who's not afraid to pick up a wrench and get dirty 

Conrad Johnston

Field Services Manager

Conrad is a dedicated oil and gas professional with a thorough understanding of wireline intervention techniques. He's been honing and refining his expertise in the field over the last 40 years where he's developed a reputation for being able to carry out the most complex slickline jobs. He has immense experience working on all kinds of slickline intervention, and providing safe results on critical sour wells. The better part of his life has been dedicated to mastering the art of slickline and keeping up with advancements in tools and technology. When the truck isn't operating, he spends time researching and finding new ways to improve Cenco's trucks to better serve our customers. He's well set up and experienced to safely work on high pressure and highly deviated wells, and perform any slickline services required.

Conrad is an avid outdoorsman that enjoys backpacking and spending time with friends, family, and his dog Torque. Most of the time you can find him fishing on his free time, which is likely where his love for slickline came from.
