TORONTO (ICIS)--Encana has completed the bulk of its divestiture of assets in the north Texas Barnett Shale region in the US to Houston-based EnerVest for $860m (€662m), the Canada-based energy firm said on Thursday.
The total sales price is $975m. Encana expects to receive the remaining proceeds of about $115m in early 2012, subject to “additional closing conditions”, it said without disclosing details.
The sale is part of a $3.5bn divestment programme to strengthen Encana's balance sheet, it said.
