Pembina Pipeline Corporation has appointed Harry Andersen as senior vice president and chief operating officer, pipelines, and has promoted Janet Loduca to senior vice president, external affairs and chief legal and sustainability officer, according to a news release.

In his new position at Pembina, Andersen is in charge of the natural gas liquids, crude, condensate, oil sands and natural gas transportation pipelines. He was formerly the senior vice president, external affairs and chief legal officer, a role in which he oversaw the company’s Indigenous affairs, government relations, communications, land, environment, regulatory, major projects and audit.

Andersen’s experience covers merger and acquisition transactions, project development, joint ventures, financings, reorganizations and restructurings. He is also knowledgeable about most areas of the energy industry, including petroleum, natural gas, other product pipelines and related storage and terminalling facilities and about matters relating to natural gas storage, processing and other upstream and midstream facilities, traditional and wind power projects and greenhouse gas credits.

Andersen obtained his law degree from the University of Calgary.

Loduca oversees Pembina’s legal, land, environment and regulatory, community and Indigenous affairs, government relations, communications and enterprise risk departments and helps to establish the company’s long-term sustainability strategy and to advance its environmental, social and governance initiatives. She previously served as Pembina’s general counsel and vice president, legal and sustainability.

For the California-based Pacific Gas and Electric Company, Loduca held the roles of senior vice president and general counsel; vice president and deputy general counsel; vice president, investor relations; vice president, safety, health and environment; and vice president, corporate relations, among other positions. She assisted that company with certain restructuring matters and with navigating the San Bruno pipeline incident.

Loduca served as an attorney for environmental law firm Beveridge & Diamond PC and as a trial attorney for the environmental crimes section of the U.S. Department of Justice. She received the Professional Business Women of California Industry Leader Award in 2017 and the Richard A. Clarke Environmental Leadership Award in 2005 and in 2010. She is a cum laude graduate of the University of San Francisco School of Law.

These executive transitions are a result of the retirement of Paul Murphy, former senior vice president and corporate services officer, and Jason Wiun, former senior vice president and chief operating officer, pipelines, at the end of March.

Pembina is a Calgary-based transportation and midstream service provider that has been active in North America’s energy industry for over 65 years. More than 20 per cent of the company’s executive team, including senior vice presidents and vice presidents, identify as female, and its leadership team seeks to improve diversity at the executive level by 2025.

The news release announcing the executive transitions also explains the company’s results for the first quarter of this year and provides business updates.
