CALGARY, A.B. – Kinder Morgan Inc. has announced that Pembina Pipeline Corporation has acquired the U.S. portion of the Cochin Pipeline for $1.5 billion.

In addition, Kinder Morgan says Pembina has acquired all of the outstanding common equity of Kinder Morgan Canada Limited, including the 70 percent majority voting interest held by Kinder Morgan Inc.

As mentioned in the 2020 budget guidance, KMI intends to use the proceeds from the Pembina transactions to pay down debt, creating approximately $1.2 billion of balance sheet/borrowing flexibility in 2020, which it says will provide attractive optionality.
