Encana Natural Gas Inc. opens compressed natural gas station in Parachute, Colorado

Parachute, Colorado (August 28, 2013) – Encana Natural Gas Inc. (“Encana”), a wholly-owned indirect subsidiary of Encana Corporation (TSX, NYSE: ECA), today opened its eighth compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling station in North America. Co-located at the Shell gasoline station in Parachute, Colorado, the station is open to registered Colorado natural gas vehicles (NGV) with proof of CNG decals and out-of-state NGVs.

“We are pleased to be contributing to the growing natural gas infrastructure in North America. By utilizing domestically produced, abundant natural gas, drivers can realize significant cost savings and environmental benefits. Encana has been realizing those benefits since 2006 and in fact, last year saved nearly $16 million by using natural gas instead of diesel and gasoline in our operations. Encana has converted nearly 57 percent of its drilling rig fleet and approximately 29 percent of its fleet vehicles to run on natural gas,” says Matt Most, Vice-President, Encana Natural Gas Inc.

Encana wants other businesses to reap the same benefits by using natural gas, which is why it offers a total fueling experience to a variety of industries including oil and gas, marine, mining, rail and on-road transportation. In addition to the CNG assets, Encana owns and operates an LNG liquefaction plant and is building a second plant in Alberta, Canada. Encana provides multiple LNG fueling solutions, including two public liquefied natural gas (LNG) fueling stations, mobile LNG fueling and LNG regasification fueling. The mobile fueling solution is a flexible option that can provide LNG in locations where fueling infrastructure isn’t currently available to heavy-duty engine fleets. The regasification fueling solution can be applied to drilling rig engines and pressure pumping engines.

Encana’s experience and expertise in providing custom fueling solutions allows for customers to maximize operational efficiencies. Natural gas has established its place in the market as a domestic, abundant, cleaner and more economical fuel alternative to gasoline or diesel. It is capable of fueling some of the largest high horsepower applications and innovation continues advance.
