Enbridge finalizes deal with Dominion

The East Ohio Gas Co. now Enbridge Gas Ohio

Enbridge finalized its acquisition of The East Ohio Gas Co. (EOG) from Dominion Energy Inc.

The gas utility will be doing business as Enbridge Gas Ohio and will join Enbridge’s Gas Distribution and Storage Business Unit. Enbridge said EOG is a premier single-state utility, serving over 1.2 million customers across more than 400 communities in Ohio, with key locations in major metropolitan areas. The gas utility has a robust portfolio of assets, including over 22,000 miles (over 35,400 km) of transmission, gathering and distribution pipelines, underground storage, and interconnections to multiple interstate pipelines and large natural gas producers.

“The addition of a strong Ohio-based gas utility company is a great strategic fit for Enbridge. It further diversifies our business and enhances the stable cash flow profile of our assets,” said Michele Harradence, Enbridge Executive vice president and president, Gas Distribution and Storage. “Natural gas utilities have long useful lives and are ‘must-have’ infrastructure for providing safe, reliable, and affordable energy. This gas utility will help blend and extend our cash flow growth outlook through the end of the decade by adding a steady, regulated investment that supports our long-term dividend profile. With this acquisition, Enbridge has all four of its business units represented in Ohio, providing further value-add opportunities. We welcome EOG and its employees into the Enbridge family of companies and look forward to building long-term productive relationships with all stakeholders in Ohio and continuing to offer Ohio customers the same safe, reliable service they are accustomed to.”

The closings of the purchases of Questar Gas Co. and its related Wexpro companies (collectively, Questar), and the Public Service Co. of North Carolina, Inc. (PSNC), respectively, are expected to occur following the receipt of required regulatory approvals applicable to each gas utility and are not cross-conditioned. The acquisitions of Questar and PSNC are on track to close in 2024. EOG is expected to contribute more than 40% of the total annualized EBITDA from the three gas utilities Enbridge has agreed to acquire from Dominion.
