CXY Energy to buy Northridge Petroleum Marketing


Canadian Occidental Petroleum Ltd. subsidiary CXY Energy Marketing has agreed to buy Northridge Petroleum Marketing Ltd. for $40 million. Seller TransCanada PipeLines Ltd. said the transaction is part of its previously announced $3 billion divestiture program.

NPML markets and trades Canadian crude oil and refined products. NPML was one of the Northridge group of companies acquired by TransCanada in 1994. The sale also includes TransCanada Energy Marketing USA Inc.'s crude oil marketing operations in Denver.

Pending necessary consents and approvals, the sale is expected to close by the end of the month. The price includes working capital.

The sale also will keep TransCanada on track to meet its $3 billion divestiture target, said Doug Baldwin, TransCanada's president and CEO. It has already amassed $1 billion through sales of other assets, says Baldwin.

In May, TransCanada sold interests in natural gas transmission networks in Argentina, Brazil, and Chile for $440 million to France's TotalFinaElf SA (OGJ Online, May 31, 2000). It also recently sold its 17.5% interest stake in Colombia's Oleducto Central SA and 50% interest in CIT Colombiana SA to Calgary-based Enbridge Inc. for $117 million (OGJ Online, May 4, 2000).

The Resilient Oilfield in the Internet of Things World

When Tue, Sep 22, 2015

As we hear about the hype surrounding the Internet of Things, the oil and gas industry is questioning what is different than what is already being done. What is new?  Using sensors and connecting devices is nothing new to our mode of business and in many ways the industry exemplifies many principles of an industrial internet of things. How does the Internet of Things impact the oil and gas industry?

Prolific instrumentation and automation digitized the industry and has changed the approach to business models calling for a systems led approach.  Resilient Systems have the ability to adapt to changing circumstances while maintaining their central purpose.  A resilient system, such as Maximo, allows an asset intensive organization to leverage connected devices by merging real-time asset information with other critical asset information and using that information to create a more agile organization.  

Join this webcast, sponsored by IBM, to learn how about Internet of Things capabilities and resilient systems are impacting the landscape of the oil and gas industry.
