CALGARY, March 5, 2014 /CNW/ – Aux Sable Canada LP is pleased to announce it has signed long-term Rich Gas Premium (RGP) agreements with Encana Corporation and Phoenix Duvernay Gas (a joint venture participant of Encana).
These agreements provide for up to 195 million cubic feet per day (mmcfd) of rich gas supplies from the emerging Duvernay shale play for connection to a receipt zone in Alberta, starting in July 2014 and continuing through to 2020.

We continue to be very encouraged by the results achieved thus far in the Duvernay play and this agreement is a reflection of that,” said Renee Zemljak, Executive Vice-President, Midstream, Marketing & Fundamentals, Encana Corporation.
