(Reuters) - Canada's Vero Energy Inc VRO.TO said privately held Torc Oil & Gas Ltd will buy it for C$147 million ($150.6 million), to boost its presence in light oil assets in the Cardium area.

Torc's offer of C$3.00 represents a 32 percent premium to Vero's Wednesday close on the Toronto Stock Exchange.
