Enbridge Reports Another Strong Year and Provides Favourable Outlook

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(CCNMatthews - Jan. 31, 2007) - Enbridge Inc. (TSX:ENB) (NYSE:ENB)

Highlights

All financial information is unaudited.

- 2006 reported earnings increased 11% to $615.4 million for the full year

- Adjusted operating earnings increased 10% for the full year

- Adjusted operating earnings increased for the fourth quarter to $172.4 million

- Industry support obtained for Southern Lights Project, Alberta Clipper Project and Line 4 Extension

"Enbridge Inc. had an excellent year in 2006 as adjusted operating earnings per common share increased 9.4% to $1.74", said Patrick D. Daniel, President & Chief Executive Officer. "This result is at the upper end of our previously stated earnings guidance range and reflects solid operating performance in all of our core businesses." Mr. Daniel continued, "Based on our outlook for 2007, it is our expectation that performance will continue to be strong and adjusted operating earnings for 2007 will be in the range of $1.75 to $1.85 per common share."

"We continue to capitalize on our competitive advantage. Our existing pipeline networks and rights of way provide considerable flexibility and opportunities for cost-effective crude oil pipeline expansion and extension projects that respond to customer needs. We continue to diversify the Company's business through the development of natural gas pipeline projects, both offshore and onshore, as well as investments in new technologies and wind power." Mr. Daniel added, "The result is a solid, visible growth outlook for the Company.

Two of our newer projects will reinforce our scale advantage. The Line 4 Extension expands the capacity of the crude oil mainline between Edmonton and Hardisty, Alberta, and the Alberta Clipper Project involves the construction of an additional pipeline between Hardisty and Superior, Wisconsin. We are pleased that our shippers have recently affirmed their support for both of these projects."

Financial Performance

Earnings applicable to common shareholders were $615.4 million for the year ended December 31, 2006, or $1.81 per share, compared with $556.0 million, or $1.65 per share, in 2005. The $59.4 million increase in earnings was primarily the result of higher earnings from the Enbridge crude oil mainline system, strong results from Enbridge Energy Partners, LP (EEP) and from the Aux Sable natural gas fractionation facility. The 2006 results also included $48.9 million from the revaluation of future income tax balances due to tax rate reductions enacted in 2006. These positive factors were partially offset by a lower earnings contribution from Enbridge Gas Distribution (EGD), as the weather in the Ontario market was significantly warmer than normal during 2006.

Fourth quarter earnings for 2006 were $171.1 million, or $0.50 per share, compared with $174.0 million, or $0.52 per share, in 2005. The fourth quarter of 2006 reflected higher earnings from the mainline system and Aux Sable, offset by lower earnings from EGD due primarily to warmer than normal weather and higher costs in the fourth quarter of 2006.

Project Development Update

The Company has made significant progress during 2006 in advancing strategic growth projects designed to provide crude oil shippers with low cost access to diverse markets.

The Spearhead Pipeline commenced operations in early March 2006, delivering Canadian crude from Chicago, Illinois to Cushing, Oklahoma. Throughput has increased steadily, surpassing the Company's expectations. In the fourth quarter of 2006, nominations have exceeded the 125,000 barrel per day (bpd) capacity. The Company is considering expanding the capacity of Spearhead during 2007 to meet this demand.

Construction has started on the Southern Access Expansion, which will ultimately add 400,000 bpd of additional capacity to the crude oil mainline from Edmonton, Alberta to Chicago at a cost to Enbridge of approximately $0.2 billion. The additional capacity on the Canadian portion is scheduled to come into service in phases, which started in 2006 and will conclude in 2009. The U.S. portion of the expansion is estimated to cost approximately US$1.3 billion and is being undertaken by EEP, the Company's 16.6% owned affiliate, which owns the U.S. portion of the mainline.

In January 2007, the Company obtained industry support for the 450,000 bpd Alberta Clipper Project. This project would involve the addition of a new line to the Enbridge mainline system between Hardisty, Alberta and Superior, Wisconsin at a cost of approximately $1.5 billion (2006 dollars) to Enbridge and US$0.8 billion (2006 dollars) to EEP. Enbridge expects to finalize commercial terms in the first quarter of 2007 and, subject to receipt of required regulatory approvals, is targeting to have the Alberta Clipper Project in service between late 2009 and mid 2010.

The Company has also obtained industry support for the $0.3 billion Line 4 Extension Project. This project will extend Line 4 from its current initiation point at Hardisty, Alberta back upstream to the Company's terminal at Edmonton. Subject to receipt of required regulatory approvals, the Line 4 extension project is targeted to be in service in late 2008.

Current shipper preferences and the demand to accelerate the development of capacity to traditional U.S. markets will likely result in the Alberta Clipper Project preceding the Gateway Project. The Gateway Project includes both a petroleum export line and a condensate import line between Edmonton and Kitimat, British Columbia. The revised in service date for the Gateway Project is expected to be 2012 to 2014.

The Company is also developing a US$0.4 billion project to extend the mainline from Flanagan, Illinois to Patoka, Illinois. The Southern Access Extension is supported by industry. An initial Offer of Settlement proposing a rolled in tolling structure for the extension was not approved by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), however shipper support for the project continues to be strong and the Company is working with industry to prepare an alternative tolling structure. The Company expects to file a second application with the FERC in the first quarter of 2007 to allow the project to continue on schedule with an estimated in service date in 2009.

In 2006, the Company announced its intention to build the US$1.3 billion Southern Lights Pipeline, which would transport diluent from Chicago back to Edmonton where it is needed for blending with bitumen production from the oil sands. Enbridge successfully closed a binding open season in July 2006 and in the fourth quarter of 2006, received industry support for the project. The Company expects to file remaining regulatory applications in the first quarter of 2007. Subject to receipt of required regulatory approvals, Southern Lights is expected to be in service by mid 2010.

The Company advanced a number of upstream development projects during 2006. An application for regulatory approval was filed for the $0.5 billion Waupisoo Pipeline project, which would transport crude oil from the Cheecham Terminal on the Athabasca Pipeline to Edmonton and is expected to be in service in mid-2008. The Stonefell Terminal Project, near Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta, has received regulatory approval and is proceeding, with a target in-service of mid 2008. Construction on the Surmont Project, which includes pipeline and tank facilities required by the Surmont Oil Sands Project at the Cheecham Terminal, was completed and first throughput is expected in 2007. The Long Lake Project is under construction at the Cheecham Terminal and completion of these pipelines and tanks is expected in early 2007, to coincide with first production from the Long Lake Oil Sands Project.

Enbridge and EEP are developing a number of opportunities to build crude oil contract terminals in both Canada and the U.S. Enbridge is advancing plans to build a new terminal at Hardisty and has executed contracts for over 80% of the expected 7.5 million barrel capacity. Enbridge has also agreed to provide terminaling services to BA Energy Inc. for their bitumen upgrader, currently under construction at Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta. EEP is progressing on the construction of various terminal projects at Cushing, Oklahoma, Superior, Wisconsin and Griffith, Indiana.

Enbridge is also advancing a number of natural gas pipelines projects. The expansion of Vector Pipeline has been approved by the FERC and is expected to be completed in the fourth quarter of 2007. The Neptune Pipeline project will connect the deepwater Neptune oil and gas field through natural gas and crude oil laterals currently under construction by the Company in the Gulf of Mexico. Enbridge also plans to construct a natural gas lateral to connect the deepwater Shenzi field to existing Gulf of Mexico pipelines. The Neptune laterals are expected to be in service in 2007 and the Shenzi lateral is expected to begin transporting natural gas in 2009.

Share Issuance and Dividend Declaration

On January 16, 2007, Enbridge entered into an agreement with a group of underwriters to issue 13.5 million common shares at a price of $38.75 per share. In conjunction with the offering, through a private placement, Enbridge will sell an additional 1.5 million common shares to Noverco, which will maintain Noverco's approximately 9.5% interest in Enbridge. Both offerings are expected to close on or about February 2, 2007.

On January 16, 2007, the Board of Directors declared quarterly dividends of $0.3075 per common share, reflecting a 7% dividend increase. On January 30, 2007, the Board of Directors declared quarterly dividends of $0.34375 per Series A Preferred Share. Both dividends are payable on March 1, 2007 to shareholders of record on February 15, 2007.

New Board Member

The Board of Directors announced the appointment of J. Herb England as a director of the Company, effective January 1, 2007. Mr. England has been appointed to fill the vacancy on the Board created by the resignation of William Fatt in July 2006. Mr. England has extensive operating experience in both public and private companies, and has served as a Chairman, Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer in several industry sectors. He will be nominated for shareholder election at the May 2007 shareholders' meeting.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------


- Liquids Pipelines earnings increased primarily due to improved results from the Enbridge crude oil mainline system reflecting higher earnings from the Incentive Tolling Settlement (ITS), Terrace expansion and lower oil loss costs.

- Gas Pipelines earnings improved due to increased results from Enbridge Offshore Pipelines which was affected by two severe hurricanes in 2005.

- Sponsored Investments earnings increased due to strong results from EEP, which experienced significantly higher crude oil throughput, strong margins and increased volumes in the natural gas gathering and processing businesses.

- Gas Distribution and Services results reflected a significant contribution from Aux Sable through its upside sharing agreement, offset by the impact of warmer than normal weather and a lower allowed return on equity at EGD.

- International earnings continue to be strong but were lower in 2006 due to a one time gain in CLH in 2005.

- Corporate costs were higher in 2006 and reflected higher interest expense, increased business development activity and the impact of a strong labour market.

The Company has foreign currency denominated earnings, primarily from U.S. based operations and investments, as well as its Euro investment in CLH. The Company uses long-term derivative contracts to economically hedge a significant portion of the cash distributions from these long-term investments. However, this does not eliminate the generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) earnings volatility caused by exchange rate differences. During the year ended December 31, 2006, the Company received foreign currency denominated cash distributions and settled associated hedge transactions resulting in $17.1 million (2005 - $13.0 million) of incremental cash flows, which were not included in reported earnings.

Non-GAAP Measures

This news release contains references to adjusted operating earnings, which represent earnings applicable to common shareholders adjusted for non-operating factors. Management believes that the presentation of adjusted operating earnings provides useful information to investors and shareholders as it provides increased predictive value and performance trends. Adjusted operating earnings represent earnings applicable to common shareholders adjusted for significant non-operating factors. This measure does not have a standardized meaning prescribed by Canadian GAAP and is not considered a GAAP measure. Therefore, this measure may not be comparable with a similar measure presented by other issuers.

- The Enbridge System reflected higher earnings from a number of factors including lower oil loss costs, favourable ITS performance and, within Terrace, lower taxes, higher toll revenues and the impact of higher volumes generating surcharge revenue. In the fourth quarter of 2006, earnings from service metrics under the ITS and higher toll revenues within Terrace were partially offset by higher operating costs.

- Athabasca System earnings continued to grow as infrastructure additions contributed positively, but were partially offset by higher operating expenses.

- Spearhead Pipeline began commercial operations in early March 2006. Volumes have remained strong and continue to surpass the Company's expectations with fourth quarter nominations exceeding capacity.

- Olympic Pipeline was acquired effective February 1, 2006 and has performed reliably as expected.

- Decreased earnings in Feeder Pipelines and Other were primarily due to increased business development costs related to the Company's organic growth projects. The NW System is now included in Feeder Pipelines and Other.

- Alliance Pipeline US earnings were lower in 2006 primarily due to the stronger Canadian dollar, which had less of an impact in the fourth quarter as the exchange rate was more consistent with the prior year.

- Vector Pipeline earnings were also impacted by the stronger Canadian dollar and higher operating costs in the second and third quarters of 2006 due to scheduled integrity inspections required by the regulator within the first six years of operation.

- Enbridge Offshore Pipelines volumes returned to 2005 pre-hurricane levels during the second quarter of 2006, resulting in increased earnings compared with 2005. The 2006 improvement was partially offset by the impact of the stronger Canadian dollar and, in the fourth quarter, by reduced throughput.

- EIF's contribution was comparable with the prior year and reflected modest earnings growth at EIF. The increase in earnings reflected lower tax on distributions received from EIF.

- EEP's 2006 results improved significantly, despite the stronger Canadian dollar, and reflected considerably higher liquids throughput on the Lakehead System, higher margins and increased volumes in the natural gas gathering and processing businesses in addition to a higher Enbridge ownership interest. The 2006 results also included $6.5 million (net to Enbridge) of unrealized mark-to-market gains (2005 - $5.0 million of losses) on derivative financial instruments that do not qualify for hedge accounting treatment (gain of $1.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2006 and a loss of $0.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2005).

- EEP issued partnership units in the first and fourth quarters of 2005 and because Enbridge did not fully participate in these offerings, dilution gains resulted. While new units were issued by EEP in the third quarter of 2006, no dilution gains resulted as Enbridge participated in the offering, increasing Enbridge's ownership interest in EEP from 10.9% to 16.6%.

- EGD's distribution volumes and earnings in 2006 were impacted by warmer than normal weather in Ontario which reduced earnings by $36.9 million, whereas weather in 2005 approximated normal weather and did not impact earnings. Weather in the fourth quarter of both years was also warmer than normal, reducing earnings by $6.7 million in 2006 and by $1.5 million in 2005.

- EGD earnings were also reduced by a lower allowed rate of return on common equity, partially offset by a higher rate base. These factors had a more pronounced effect in the first and fourth quarters as those are high volume distribution periods.

- EGD's earnings are also affected by variances from the forecast cost of service, including operating and maintenance costs. EGD's costs can vary from quarter to quarter due to many factors including weather, project timelines and the timing of operating and capital expenditures. This provided a negative earnings effect in the fourth quarter of 2006 in contrast with a positive effect in 2005.

- Noverco earnings were higher in the fourth quarter compared with the prior year due to a $4.0 million dilution gain from a Gaz Metro LP unit issuance in which Noverco did not participate. In addition, the first quarter of the prior year included a $7.3 million dilution gain. Excluding dilution gains, earnings from Noverco were lower in 2006 as the prior year included a future income tax recovery stemming from the receipt of a significant cash dividend.

- Enbridge Gas New Brunswick earnings increased as debt was settled through the issuance of equity, during the third and fourth quarters of 2005, resulting in a higher equity base throughout 2006.

- Aux Sable entered into an output arrangement effective January 1, 2006, that substantially eliminated all negative earnings variability. Aux Sable now receives a fixed annual fee and a variable upside sharing fee above a certain margin level measured on an annual basis. Fractionation margins were very positive throughout 2006 and as a result, earnings from the upside sharing mechanism account for the majority of earnings from Aux Sable both in the fourth quarter and year to date.

- Other earnings included an increased contribution from Tidal Energy, which resulted from the expansion of the business into the U.S. at the end of 2005 and increased earnings from its physical storage program.
