    Enbridge Follows TransCanada With Offer of Long-Term Bonds

    Enbridge Inc. is offering C$1 billion ($811 million) of 60-year bonds on Thursday, following in the footsteps of fellow Canadian pipeline giant TransCanada Corp. The securities have similar maturity and call structure as the C$1.5 billion ($1.22 billion) of 4.65 percent bonds sold by a unit of TransCanada in May. Before that sale, the market for Canadian dollar corporate bonds hasn’t seen an offering of that long a tenor since Enbridge sold C$100 million of 100-year bonds in 2012. Fitch assigned a BBB- rating to the offering, the agency said in a report Thursday.
