Stage 3 Separation

Fred Lausen, Jr.

The management team of Stage 3 Separation has a long history of working together in the solids controls space. The team is led by President and CEO Fred Lausen, Jr. who made a name for himself in the development of solids control industry through his first company Houston Prime Pipe and Supply in 1991. Houston Prime was instrumental in the development of turnkey services designed for the closed loop solids controls business. Mr. Lausen sold Houston Prime in 1998 and quickly founded a new company, Separation Services (SSI) that sought to provide exceptional service and performance in the solids control arena. SSI was sold in 2005 to Stallion Oilfield Services, launching the company into the solids control business, and he served as the President of Stallion Solids Controls from 2005 to 2009.

Mr. Lausen founded Stage 3 Separation, LLC in 2009 and has propelled the company to a leading position in the solids control field by redefining technologies, processes and service offerings for solids control. He also serves on the Board of Directors for Stage 3 Separation.
