Encana Corporation will change its name to Ovintiv Canada ULC as part of its internal reorganization, related to its domicile switch to the U.S.
In a letter to the Canada Energy Regulator (CER), the company said the name change will have no impact on its commercial relationship with the regulator.
Ovintiv Canada will remain based in Calgary and continue to have field offices in Nova Scotia, Alberta and British Columbia. It will continue to own and operate its existing portfolio of Canadian crude oil, natural gas liquids and condensate and natural gas properties and related assets.
The company will be updating the names of its operational assets in the region to reflect the change to Ovintiv.
Officials say they will be taking a case-by-case approach when it comes to updating the company's naming rights on community facilities, including the Encana Events Centre in Dawson Creek.
