Encana sells Jonah to TPG Capital for US$1.8 billion

Report summary

Encana is to sell its interests in the Jonah Field, in southwest Wyoming's Green River Basin, to TPG Capital. The deal, worth US$1.8 billion, was highly anticipated by the market, and follows the trend of an increasing number of private equity-backed acquisitions of primarily dry gas assets in the Rockies region. With the absence of shareholder pressure, private equity buyers of dry gas assets have the luxury of buying and holding assets and can take a longer-term view on natural gas prices.
