Teachers’ Pension Risks $2.65 Billion On Cenovus Oil, Gas Interests
In a show of confidence for returns on oil and gas, the Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan has agreed to buy millions of royalty and mineral interests for gross proceeds of US$2.65 billion (C$3.3 billion). Oil company Cenovus Energy Inc. (CVE), a spinoff of Encana Corp. (ECA), said June 30 it will sell subsidiary Heritage Royalty Limited Partnership’s 4.8 million gross acres of royalty interest and mineral fee title lands in Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba. Heritage owns one of the largest packages of fee titles in Canada, though oil and natural gas prices have suffered during the downturn. Royalty property cash flows are linked to the price of oil and natural gas. The Teachers' Pension said its investment portfolio helps to diversify benefits and a hedge against unexpected inflation.
