EnCana Announces Changes in Canadian Upstream Leadership

EnCana Corp.

EnCana Corp. on Thursday appointed Mike Graham, executive vice president and president of Canadian Foothills, as president of EnCana’s Canadian Region.

EnCana’s Canadian Region is a consolidation of the company's two upstream Canadian regions--Canadian Plains and Canadian Foothills. Bill Oliver, EnCana's executive vice president and president, Midstream & Marketing, takes over responsibility for EnCana's Canadian oil and natural gas businesses in the Athabasca region of northeast Alberta, which includes the company's oil sands operations.

In addition, Roger Biemans, most recently the president of Canadian Plains, has decided to leave EnCana to pursue other interests.

With an enterprise value of approximately US$50 billion, EnCana is one of North America's leading natural gas producers. It is also among the largest holders of gas and oil resource lands onshore North America and is a technical and cost leader in the in situ recovery of oil sands bitumen.
