12:25 EDTECAEncana sees ending year with cash balances over $3B, well ahead of target
Including the proceeds from the transaction with Phoenix, Encana said it expects to end the year with cash balances in excess of $3.0B, well ahead of the targeted $2.5B the company projected in June. In addition, confirmed carry capital committed to Encana from joint ventures and other third party agreements for 2013 is now approximately $750M, and covers about half of Encana's projected costs in those areas. To date, Encana has increased its hedge position for 2013 to approximately 1.5B cubic feet per day at an average price of $4.39 per million cubic feet, the company said. "Our enhanced risk management position combined with our significant expected cash balance for the end of the year puts us in a solid position to execute on our plans for 2013. We expect these joint venture arrangements will help us achieve higher capital efficiencies which will enable us to reduce the amount of capital that we initially projected to spend next year," the company said.

06:03 EDTECAEncana agrees to sell Haynesville assets for $850M
Encana announced that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Encana Oil & Gas, has reached an agreement to sell its Haynesville natural gas assets, located in northern Louisiana, to GEP Haynesville, a joint venture formed by GeoSouthern Haynesville, LP and funds managed by GSO Capital Partners LP. Total cash consideration to Encana under the transaction is $850M. In addition, through the transfer of current and future obligations, Encana will reduce its gathering and midstream commitments, which will be substantially complete through 2020, by approximately $480M on an undiscounted basis. Further, Encana will transport and market GeoSouthern's Haynesville production on a fee for service basis for the next five years. Encana will use the total cash consideration to reduce its net debt, further strengthening its balance sheet. Consistent with its strategy, Encana remains focused on growing high margin production. Over 80% of 2015 capital will be invested in the company's four most strategic assets in the Permian, Eagle Ford, Duvernay and Montney. During the first half of 2015, Encana's Haynesville assets produced an average 217 mmcf/d, contributed approximately 9% to companywide production and less than 2.5% to Encana's first half operating cash flow, excluding hedges. The sale of Encana's Haynesville assets is subject to satisfaction of normal closing conditions, as well as regulatory approvals and post-closing adjustments, and is expected to close in Q4 with an effective date of January 1.
