Canadian Natural Resources Limited (TSX: CNQ) (NYSE: CNQ) ("Canadian Natural" or the "Company") announces it has entered into a definitive agreement with Storm Resources Ltd. ("Storm") relating to the acquisition under a plan of arrangement of all the issued and outstanding common shares of Storm, for a cash consideration of $6.28 per share. The Company will also assume Storm's total debt, working capital deficit and other monetary obligations of approximately $186 million. The transaction value represents approximately 1% of Canadian Natural's enterprise value and does not materially impact the Company's balance sheet strength or liquidity position. Storm's land and production are located within Canadian Natural's core area providing opportunity to leverage synergies.

Current production, before royalties, to be acquired by Canadian Natural, is approximately 136 million cubic feet per day of natural gas and 5,600 barrels per day of NGLs. The assets include properties in the high quality, liquids rich Montney area of Northeast British Columbia.

Under the Company's free cash flow allocation policy to the extent that absolute debt is below $15 billion, such amount will be available for strategic growth/acquisition opportunities. As the Company's absolute debt is targeted to be below $15 billion when this transaction closes in December 2021, such available funding will be used to fund the acquisition. This will not impact the free cash flow allocation policy as it relates to the amounts to be allocated to share repurchases. The incremental future cash flows from this strategic growth/acquisition activity is targeted to benefit future returns to shareholders and balance sheet strength.

In commenting on the acquisition, Canadian Natural's President, Tim McKay stated, "This acquisition provides existing production and infrastructure that complements our current assets in the area. These operating areas provide opportunity for synergies within our current diversified portfolio. We look forward to working together with the staff currently employed by Storm."

The transaction is targeted to close in December, 2021, subject to normal closing conditions.

Canadian Natural is a senior oil and natural gas production company, with continuing operations in its core areas located in Western Canada, the U.K. sector of the North Sea and Offshore Africa.

Ways to Invest in Natural Gas

The US Energy Information Administration says natural gas is the most widely used fuel for space heating in the US, and it has also started to beat out coal as the top fuel for power generation. Even so, demand for natural gas around the world can be volatile as it is very much dependent on the weather.

Natural gas is a hydrocarbon gas mixture primarily composed of methane. It should not to be confused with ethane, which is another type of odorless gas. It can be found by itself or in association with oil, and is one of the safest and most useful forms of clean energy. Natural gas is often cooled to produce liquefied natural gas (LNG) in order to reduce transport risk and allow for easier storage.

For some investors, natural gas investment remains an exciting frontier and a potentially lucrative portfolio addition. Read on for a more in-depth look at why natural gas investing can be compelling.
