Encana is committed to sharing information to build and maintain long-term, mutually beneficial relationships with our stakeholders.
Encana has 206,000 net acres in the San Juan Basin, where we use nitrogen fracking, a technology that reduces the amount of water needed to unlock light, sweet oil.
Our community investment program strives to promote environmental stewardship, enhance the skill sets of the next generation of industry workers and support the needs of communities where we live and operate through our three funding pillars: environment, education and community life.
Encana Cares, our signature annual fundraising program in Canada and the United States, supported more than 1,100 charities in 2014.
In the San Juan, we have supported a program in Farmington, New Mexico, in the heart of our operations, to ensure children returning to school in the fall had new backpacks filled with food. The program was coordinated by the Echo Food Bank thanks to a grant from Encana, and will continue in the spring of 2015, delivering a total of 751 backpacks.
We also support Ronald McDonald House in Albuquerque and Childhaven in Farmington, as well as a book fair and a program to provide blankets, toiletries, office supplies, computers and clothing at the Lybrook School.
