16:44 EDTKKREncana announces agreement with Veresen Midstream
EnCana (ECA) announced it has reached an agreement with Veresen Midstream Limited Partnership, a 50/50 limited partnership of Veresen and affiliates of KKR (KKR), under which Encana and Cutbank Ridge Partnership, a partnership between Encana and Cutbank Dawson Gas Resources Ltd., a subsidiary of Mitsubishi Corporation, will sell certain natural gas gathering and compression assets supporting Montney development in the Dawson area of northeastern British Columbia. Total cash consideration to Encana under the transaction is approximately C$412M plus actual costs accrued in 2015. Veresen Midstream will provide gathering and compression services to Encana and the CRP under a fee-for-service arrangement in a dedicated area of mutual interest within the Montney. Veresen Midstream has agreed to undertake up to C$5B of new midstream expansion to support development within the Montney, which is a strategic growth asset for Encana. Encana, along with the CRP, plans to invest between $600M-700M in the play in 2015. The structure of the agreement reduces Encana's commitments compared to the typical "take-or-pay" fee structure embedded in traditional midstream arrangements. In addition, it increases Encana's financial flexibility and mitigates its exposure to long-term unutilized demand charges. Encana and its partner can make real-time decisions on expansions or delays of projects as necessary to align with its development plans and have the option to include processing as part of the service package. Encana will continue to operate the related facilities and lead future infrastructure construction on behalf of Veresen Midstream, which will oversee all commercial and other ownership activities. The arrangement includes a competitive fee structure that delivers mutually attractive rates of return and provides Veresen Midstream the incentive to effectively control costs and aggressively pursue third-party opportunities in the basin. The transaction includes the sale of existing infrastructure comprised of gas gathering and compression facilities located in the Dawson area, consisting of approximately 500 kilometres of pipeline and 675M cubic feet per day of compression. The transaction is subject to regulatory approval and typical closing conditions, and is anticipated to close in 1Q15.
