CALGARY, Dec. 31, 2019 /PRNewswire/ - Enbridge Inc. (TSX: ENB) (NYSE: ENB) (Enbridge) today announced the closing of the agreement through which Enbridge has sold a number of federally-regulated natural gas gathering and processing assets in British Columbia ("G&P Business") to Brookfield Infrastructure (NYSE: BIP) (TSX: BIP.UN) and its institutional partners (collectively, "Brookfield"). These federally-regulated assets represent the second phase of the $4.3 B transaction, previously announced on July 4, 2018. 

Enbridge has now closed the complete sale of the Canadian G&P Business, which includes 19 provincially and federally-regulated natural gas processing plants and 3,550 kilometres of natural gas gathering pipelines in British Columbia and Alberta.
