CALGARY - Brookfield Infrastructure Partners L.P. says it has completed the acquisition of Inter Pipeline Ltd.

Cash was the selection option for holders of 68.7 million Inter Pipeline shares while Brookfield shares were chosen by the holders of 32.4 million shares.

Inter Pipeline shares are expected to be delisted from the Toronto Stock Exchange at the end of Monday trading.

Brian Baker was appointed interim CEO following the resignation of Christian Bayle.
