Canada’s Pembina Pipeline sees leadership change

Canadian energy infrastructure company Pembina Pipeline said November 22 its CEO, Mick Dilger, has stepped down to pursue other opportunities. He will be replaced on an interim basis by Scott Burrows, the company’s current CFO.

Pembina’s board will work with a leading search firm to identify and evaluate internal and external candidates for a new CEO, the company said.

“I am immensely proud of the Pembina team, the culture we have created, and what we have accomplished together,” Dilger said. “When I joined Pembina, it was a C$2.5bn (US$1.98bn) entity in a single business and has grown into a roughly C$35bn entity, operating safely and successfully in multiple jurisdictions and in many businesses, with more underway.”

Aside from natural gas and liquids pipelines across North America, Pembina is a partner with the Haisla First Nation in the proposed Cedar LNG project in British Columbia and with TC Energy in the proposed Alberta Carbon Grid, which would capture and sequester CO2 from a number of point sources in Alberta.

It also owns the dormant Jordan Cove LNG project in Oregon and companion Pacific Connector Gas Pipeline. Last week, the US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission asked backers of the two projects to “clarify whether they plan to move forward with the projects.” 

With Burrows as interim CEO, Cameron Goldade, currently Pembina’s vice-president, capital markets, has been appointed interim CFO.
