The transaction terms were undisclosed.

Rolando InterEnergy chairman Gonzalez Bunster said: "This transaction demonstrates InterEnergy’s commitment to growing our presence in markets where we already have a footprint, and also confirms our strategy of growing into new markets and diversifying our portfolio."
