EnCana is "Buying the Beef" in Support of Western Canada's Cattle Industry

Calgary (Alberta) - June 3, 2003 - To show support for Western Canada's beef industry, Calgary-based EnCana Corporation (EnCana) is partnering with selected 4-H Beef Clubs in Alberta, British Columbia and Saskatchewan to host community barbecues showcasing Western Canadian beef throughout June and July.

"Beef, oil and gas are mainstays and integral to Western Canada's economy and heritage," says Florence Murphy, EnCana's Vice-President, Public and Community Relations. "We all work side by side on the land, so we want to demonstrate our confidence in our world-class beef industry."

EnCana district employees in all three provinces are being invited to work with the 4-H Beef Clubs and local news outlets to organize and advertise the community barbecues in any community where EnCana operates. EnCana will match funds raised at each event to create a donation to the participating 4-H Beef Clubs.

"4-H and EnCana share similar values and 4-H is an organization that helps young people shape their future and has helped guide many members to a career in agriculture. We hope our support helps maintain the 4-H movement's vitality. 4-H has had a significant role in building the foundation of the herds that have made Western Canadian beef famous," said Ms. Murphy.

EnCana is committed to partnerships with the communities in which it operates throughout the world. EnCana is one of the world's leading independent oil and gas companies, driven to be the industry's best-in-class benchmark in production cost, per-share growth and value creation.
