Life Takes Energy®

Enbridge is one of North America’s largest energy infrastructure companies with an extensive delivery network of crude oil, natural gas, natural gas liquids and renewable energy. Our purpose is to provide safe, reliable energy that fuels people's quality of life. Headquartered in Calgary, Canada we have major offices in Houston, Edmonton, Toronto, Duluth, Superior and Chatham. We employ nearly 14,000 people who bring energy and ingenuity to work every day.

Building Connections. Enbridge connects energy supply with growing markets in North America … customers with solutions … and communities with opportunity.


We conduct our business through three core businesses—Liquids Pipelines (LP), Gas Transmission and Midstream (GTM) and Gas Distribution and Storage (GDS)—and a growing renewables portfolio. We work across North America in eight Canadian provinces and territories and 41 U.S. states. We operate locally, living and working in the communities near our operations.

We move approximately 25% of North American crude oil supply, and deliver about 20% of the natural gas consumed in the U.S. We operate one of the fastest growing natural gas utilities in North America, serving 3.7 million customers and heating 75% of homes in Ontario. We own and operate Canada's largest natural gas storage facility and the secondlargest physically traded hub in North America (Dawn Hub).

We were early investors in renewable energy and one of the largest renewable energy companies in Canada. In 2018, Enbridge developed a partnership with the Canada Pension Plan Investment Board (CPPIB) focused on growing our global offshore wind portfolio. Our net interests in renewable power facilities—either operating or under construction— have the capacity to generate more than 1,700 MW of zero-emission energy in North America and Europe, which is roughly enough energy to power about 700,000 homes.

Our acquisition in 2017 of Spectra Energy Corp accelerated our growth in lower-carbon natural gas, and our asset base today reflects the global energy supply mix. Our footprint gives us optionality to grow and capitalize on opportunities in the transition to a lower-carbon economy. Today, the portion of our portfolio focused on natural gas is approximately 54% of net assets and approximately 45% of earnings.

Enbridge recognizes that consumers want more affordable, reliable and sustainable energy. We see significant opportunity in diversifying the products and services we offer to respond to global supply and demand preferences. We pride ourselves on providing the energy people need and want, safely and reliably—to fuel our day to day lives. That’s what Enbridge is all about.
