Enerplus Corporation has signed a definitive agreement to sell some of its non-core assets and Pouce Coupe asset in north-west Alberta, Canada, with an undisclosed company for C$95.5m ($73.49m).

Assets under the deal have proven and probable reserves of 9.1 million metric barrels of oil (mmboe) as of December 2015 and are expected to produce approximately 2,300 barrels of oil-equivalent a day (boed) in 2016.

Enerplus will use sale proceeds to reduce its outstanding debt.
