December 18, 2001 The industry veteran will oversee the buildout of optical-fiber networks that use gas-utility pipelines.

Sempra Fiber Links (www.sempra.com) has appointed Chris McLorg as vice president of engineering and construction to oversee the buildout of its unique optical fiber networks using the pipelines of natural gas utility companies.

Sempra Fiber Links will begin installations of its fiber-in-gas technology in select cities in North America beginning next year.

In his new role, McLorg is responsible for implementing the company's patent-pending technology, a process that enables telecommunications firms to install optical fiber cable for the "last mile" of links to customer buildings.

"With 17 years of telecom engineering and construction management experience, Chris McLorg is the ideal candidate to oversee the implementation of our fiber-in-gas technology as we begin to build the networks across North America," says Michael Clover, president of Sempra Fiber Links.

Prior to joining Sempra Fiber Links, McLorg served as general manager of engineering and construction for 360Fiber Inc., a subsidiary of 360Networks in Broomfield, Colo. He also served for several years with 360Networks subsidiaries and its predecessors in Eastern and Central Canada, managing optical fiber system installations.

McLorg has a bachelor's degree in civil engineering from Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario.

Sempra Fiber Links, based in San Diego, launched its technology in July 2001 and began marketing it to gas utility companies across North America.
