05:23 EDTPGHPengrowth Energy announces commissioning of Lindbergh, sale of non-core assets
Pengrowth reports that construction and commissioning of its insulated sales line connecting the Lindbergh commercial facilities with the Husky pipeline, has been completed on time. Production from the commercial facilities has now been tied-in to the sales line, providing Pengrowth with additional transportation/marketing optionality. Pengrowth still retains the option to move production by rail to markets in an effort to maximize revenues and netbacks. Growth in production from the Lindbergh thermal project continues to meet expectations and closely follows the performance that was established by the pilot wells over the initial months of production. Current production from the project is approximately 14,400 barrels per day with an instantaneous steam oil ratio of 1.99x. Production ramp-up at Lindbergh remains on track to achieve production rates of 16,000 bbl/d by the end of the year. As part of its emphasis on strengthening its balance sheet, the company intends to sell up to $600M of non-core assets by the end of the year. The proceeds from the expected dispositions will be used to reduce corporate indebtedness under the company's credit facilities.

07:35 EDTENBEnbridge agrees to transfer Canadian Mainline to Enbridge Income Fund for $30.4B
Enbridge has reached agreement with Enbridge Income Fund to transfer its Canadian Liquids Pipelines Business, held by Enbridge Pipelines, or EPI, and Enbridge Pipelines Athabasca, or EPA, and certain Canadian renewable energy assets to the Fund for consideration payable at closing valued at $30.4B. The Transaction is subject to customary regulatory approvals and closing conditions, as well as a vote of the public shareholders of Enbridge Income Fund Holdings, which is expected to occur in August. The Transaction is a key component of Enbridge's Financial Strategy Optimization introduced in December of last year which included an increase in the company's targeted dividend payout. It advances the company's sponsored vehicle strategy and supports Enbridge's previously announced 33 percent dividend increase in 2015 and expected annual average dividend per share, or DPS, growth of 14%-16% from 2016 through to 2018. It also positions Enbridge to extend its industry leading DPS growth beyond 2018. The Transaction is expected to provide Enbridge with an alternate source of funding for its enterprise wide growth initiatives and enhance its competitiveness for new organic growth opportunities and asset acquisitions. In conjunction with the execution of the Transaction, Enbridge will commence employing supplemental cash flow metrics as part of its normal course quarterly reporting of financial performance and in its guidance. Among other measures, management also expects to utilize available cash flow from operations, or ACFFO, as defined under Non-GAAP Measures below, to assess the performance of its base business and expected growth program as well as its dividend outlook. ACFFO is currently expected to grow at a compound average annual rate of approximately 18% from 2014-2018, inclusive of the impacts of the Transaction. Going forward, the company will express its dividend payout range as a percentage of ACFFO rather than adjusted earnings. The target dividend payout policy range will be 40%-50% of ACFFO, which is approximately equivalent to the previous payout range of 75%-85% of adjusted earnings. The Transaction will significantly increase the Fund's scale and scope and create a transparent source of long-term growth driven by the $15B low risk, commercially secured growth program embedded within the transferred business, $2B of which is already in service. ENF's dividend is expected to be increased by approximately 10% on closing and by an expected further 10% at the beginning of 2016 and each year thereafter through 2019.
