Kitimat LNG facility partners Apache Corporation and EOG Resources, Inc., through their Canadian subsidiaries, announced that Encana Corporation (Encana) has agreed to acquire a 30 percent working interest ownership in the planned natural gas liquefaction and export facility on British Columbia's west coast and the associated Pacific Trail Pipelines (PTP). Under the new ownership agreement, Apache will sell down 11 percent of the equity in Kitimat LNG and PTP, retaining operatorship and a 40 percent working interest. EOG will sell 19 percent, keeping a 30 percent working interest. Financial terms of the contract were not disclosed.

"Encana is a natural partner with Apache and EOG for the Kitimat project. All three companies have a significant presence in the Horn River Basin as well as extensive experience in British Columbia natural gas plays, which provides additional operating and commercial synergies for development of this vital energy resource," said Janine McArdle, president of Kitimat LNG and senior vice president-gas monetization, Apache Corporation.

Renee Zemljak, Encana's executive vice-president, midstream, marketing and fundamentals, said: "Encana is excited to join a leading-edge export project that has the potential to advance the North American natural gas industry and supply the growing global demand for LNG by serving a diverse market in the Pacific Rim."

Marketing discussions are under way with potential Asia-Pacific LNG customers. The partners expect to have firm sales commitments in place by the time a final investment decision is made near the end of 2011. Initial shipments of LNG are expected to begin in 2015.
