Enbridge to buy some gas facilities from Encana
Oct 22 (Reuters) - Enbridge Inc, Canada's second-largest pipeline company, said it will buy certain gas facilities from Encana Corp in the Peace River Arch region in northwestern Alberta as it looks to strengthen its gathering and compression business.
The deal also includes facilities under construction.
Enbridge said its total investment in the region is expected to be about C$264 million after these facilities are completed in 2013.
Encana, Canada's biggest gas producer, has been shifting to more valuable oil and liquids-rich gas production with dry gas prices under pressure due to an oversupply of the fuel in North America.
"This agreement in the Peace River Arch region represents another step in the execution of our strategy to establish a strong position in the Canadian midstream business," said Leon Zupan, president of Enbridge's gas pipelines unit.
