Mirant to Buy TransCanada's Gas Marketing Unit

LCG, Oct. 12, 2001--Atlanta-based power producer Mirant Corp. said yesterday that it has agreed to buy the gas marketing business of TransCanada Pipelines Ltd. for an undisclosed sum. The deal will propel Mirant into the number two slot among north American gas marketers.

Mirant has agreed to acquire TransCanada's trading and marketing business and related natural gas storage and transportation contracts, along with its so-called "netback pool," which markets supply from 550 Canadian producers.

The sale takes TransCanada out of the marketing and trading end of the energy business. The company has sold $3.3 billion in Canadian money ($2.1 billion U.S.) worth of assets over the past two years in order to focus on its pipeline and electric generation businesses in North America.

Mirant said the deal would make it Canada's largest gas marketer in addition to giving it the number two spot in North America.

The companies expect to close the transaction by the end of this year, pending regulatory, producer and customer approvals.
