RICHMOND, Va. (WKBN) – A utility company that serves millions of customers, including those in Ohio, has agreed to sell three of its natural gas distribution companies.

According to a news release from the company, Dominion Energy has agreed to sell its companies to Embridge, a Canadian-based energy company. The total deal is worth $14 billion, including debt, for an aggregate purchase price of $9.4 billion.

The sale includes three separate agreements for The East Ohio Gas Company, Public Service Company of North Carolina, and Questar Gas Company, along with Wexpro Company.
