Enbridge looks to raise US$7B, but wont spend it all in one place
In March, the pipeline company closed a $2.3 billion equity raise to pay off short-term debt
Canada’s largest pipeline company said in the filing that it plans to use funds raised for general corporate purposes including reducing debt and financing capital spending, but it doesn’t expect to spend the money on any specific project.
Calgary-based Enbridge said it could raise the money over the next 25 months through a combination of debt securities, common shares and preference shares.
Enbridge recently announced a US$1.5 billion deal to buy into the Bakken Pipeline System in the northwestern U.S., as well as a $282 million investment in a French offshore wind company.
In March, the company closed a $2.3 billion equity raise to pay off short-term debt.
