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. (OGJ Online, May 7, 2014).

The Eagle Ford acreage produced 53,000 boe/d in the first quarter and has an estimated drilling inventory of more than 400 locations. The deal doubles the company's current oil production.
