Questar Chairman, President and CEO Ronald Jibson made his plans public to retire once the Questar-Dominion acquisition is completed. The companies announced on February 1 an agreement to combine in an all-cash transaction in which Dominion agreed to pay Questar shareholders and assume Questar’s outstanding debt. The pending merger would create an integrated energy company serving about 2.5 million electric utility customers and 2.3 million gas utility customers in seven states. The combined company would also operate more than 15,500 miles of natural gas transmission, gathering and storage pipelines, and approximately 24,300 MW of electric generation.
