Enbridge Inc. further expanded its presence in the Lower 48 by acquiring a string of renewable natural gas (RNG) facilities.

The Calgary-based company said that, as part of ongoing efforts to build a U.S. RNG manufacturing and transportation business, it purchased seven operating landfill gas-to-RNG facilities from Morrow Renewables.

The portfolio, valued at $1.2 billion, complements recent Enbridge moves to grow North American volumes of RNG made from food and farm waste, the company said. The Morrow facilities deliver RNG from municipal landfills in six cities in Texas and one in Arkansas. The companies said all the cities have growing populations and strong partnerships with local municipalities.
