CSX announces new head of Yukon Pacific Corp.
ANCHORAGE -- The parent company of Yukon Pacific Corp. has announced a new director for the corporation. Ward Whitmore will be director of project development and will direct day-to-day operation for Yukon Pacific.
Yukon Pacific holds the major state and federal permits and authorizations for an 800-mile natural gas pipeline and liquefaction facility. Under the company's Trans-Alaska Gas System project, natural gas would move via pipeline from the North Slope of Alaska to Valdez, where it would be refrigerated to produce liquefied natural gas for shipment to Asia.
Whitmore has worked on the project for 12 years. An Anchorage resident since 1989, Whitmore joined Yukon Pacific after holding several engineering-related positions with Union Pacific Resources and Phillips Petroleum. He replaces Jeff Lowenfels.
CSX is based in Richmond, Va., and operates the largest rail network in the eastern half of the United States.
