How We Deliver Value to Our Shareholders

While the size and reach of Enbridge has grown as a result of our combination with Spectra Energy, our value proposition to shareholders remains the same –delivering superior returns through the strength of our low-risk business model. This has driven our success in the past and it will continue to do so in the future.

2016 Annual Review - Investment Proposition

What Sets Us Apart


Our low-risk business model delivers highly predictable results in all market conditions

  • Minimal exposure to market prices, foreign exchange and interest rates
  • Minimal volume risk; strong, long-term contracts and billing structures
  • Minimal credit risk; majority of revenues underpinned by strong counterparties

Financial Strength and Flexibility

  • Strong, investment-grade credit ratings
  • Ample liquidity, strong access to capital

Strong Supply and Demand Fundamentals

  • Liquids: Western Canada Sedimentary Basin is short pipeline capacity, with 600,000 barrels per day oil sands growth expected through 2020
  • Natural Gas: Connectivity to major markets; steady long-term growth from demand into the U.S. northeast, southeast and Gulf Coast
  • Renewables: Renewable power expected to account for a larger share of the collective energy mix as demand for lower-carbon energy sources grows

Industry-Leading Growth Outlook

  • $27-billion commercially secured growth capital program alone drives 12 –14 percent annual ACFFO per share growth rate (2014 –2019)
  • Additional $48 billion in future projects supports further potential upside to cash flow and annual 10–12 percent dividend growth through 2024
