JUNEAU — The board of the state's gas line corporation has narrowed down its search for a replacement for former president Dan Fauske, with the leading candidate being a former president of a Houston-based liquefied natural gas company.
Alaska Gasline Development Corp. board members were in Juneau this week introducing lawmakers to Keith Meyer, the former president of Cheniere Energy, Inc.
Meyer is one of about a half-dozen candidates vying for the job of running AGDC, the corporation charged with representing Alaska's interests in the development of the proposed $55 billion natural gas pipeline project from the North Slope to Cook Inlet. Gov. Bill Walker also met with Meyer several times in March.
An AGDC spokesman, Miles Baker, said the replacement for Fauske would likely be named at a board meeting late next week.
