Yukon Pacific Corp. "was founded in the 1980s after the original proposal to take North Slope natural gas to market through Canada collapsed due to rising costs and dropping Lower 48 natural gas prices.

"Yukon became a subsidiary of CSX Corp., a big Lower 48 transportation company, and in the 1990s it held permits for its project and authorizations from the U.S. president and the U.S. Department of Energy to market Alaska-produced liquefied natural gas to Asian buyers.

"Jeff Lowenfels, then president of Yukon, said in 1998 that the state right of way was the only one of the company's permits that needed to be renewed." [1]
