Encana completes $3.1 billion purchase of Eagle Ford acreage

Encana Oil & Gas (USA) Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Encana Corp., has completed its previously reported $3.1 billion purchase of 45,500 net acres in Karnes, Wilson, and Atascosa counties of south Texas from Freeport-McMoRan Oil & Gas LCC, a subsidiary of Freeport-McMoRan Copper & Gold Inc.
