The merged company will manage approximately 1.3 million net acres and have a production capacity of about 287,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day.

The acquisition agreement stipulates that Enerplus shareholders will get 0.10125 shares of Chord Energy common stock and $1.84 in cash for each share of Enerplus they own. Given Chord Energy’s stock price at the close of the announcement day, the equity value of this deal is projected to be around $3.8 billion.
