Encana Contributing $500,000 to Flood Relief Efforts 
CALGARY, ALBERTA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/22/13 -- Encana Corporation
(TSX:ECA)(NYSE:ECA) is donating $500,000 to assist with flood relief
efforts in southern Alberta. This includes an initial donation of
$250,000 to the Red Cross to assist in immediate relief work in
impacted communities, as well as $250,000 to be allocated to a number
of Encana's partners which are actively engaged in the effort in both
the Calgary area and elsewhere in southern Alberta. In addition,
employee donations to registered charities will be matched by Encana
up to $25,000 per employee as part of our matching gifts program. 
"The recent floods have had devastating and widespread impact
throughout southern Alberta and Encana is committed to assisting with
the inspiring relief efforts that are already underway to help those
most affected," said Bill Oliver, Executive Vice-President & Chief
Corporate Officer. "The hard work being done by relief agencies and
emergency services personnel, as well as the many volunteer citizens
who have pitched in to help their neighbours, truly reflects the
strong sense of community in Calgary and throughout southern
Alberta." 
Encana is also committed to working with the city officials and our
industry associations to coordinate a collective industry volunteer
response to aid those communities impacted by flooding.  
"The floods have left significant damage in many communities where
Encana employees live and work, including in Calgary where we have
our corporate headquarters. It has also been felt, or could
potentially be felt, in some of our operating communities, such as
Drumheller where officials are currently anticipating significant
impact. We encourage all of our staff to stay safe and our thoughts
are with everyone in Alberta who have been affected by this
extraordinary event," added Oliver. 
With the City of Calgary and much of southern Alberta remaining in a
state of emergency, Encana has been in regular communication with
staff through updates via email and social media. The company is
working to ensure business-critical functions will proceed normally
while mandatory evacuations are in place, including the current
evacuation for downtown Calgary. Encana encourages all of our staff
to follow the instructions of frontline emergency responders and
government officials in terms of evacuation, alternate shelter and
infrastructure closures.
