Matt also spearheaded the implementation of the refinery’s reliability programs, including tracking the refinery’s Mean Time between Failure, assisted with the implementation of a new vibration program, a bad actor program, and a critical spare parts program. Mr. Price was also responsible for overseeing and supporting rebuilds of several large centrifugal and reciprocating compressor rebuilds.

In his new role with Pioneer, Matt will be the firm’s subject matter expert on reliability engineering and maintenance practices and will be focused on continuing to develop and expand our reliability service offerings as well as providing clients personalized reliability solutions, facilitation and mentoring. In addition, he will also provide clients with vibration analysis and mechanical troubleshooting services.
Matt holds a bachelor of science in mechanical engineering from the University of Wyoming and is an ISO Category III level vibration analyst. He and his wife, Elena, currently live in Salt Lake City, UT., and plan on moving to Colorado in early 2015.
