(Reuters) - Cenovus Energy (CVE.TO: Quote) said on Tuesday it priced a $2.9 billion offering of senior notes to fund the acquisition of assets in Western Canada from ConocoPhillips (COP.N: Quote).

Last week, the company agreed to buy oil sands and natural gas assets from ConocoPhillips in a cash-and-stock deal valued at C$17.7 billion ($13.3 billion).

The notes offering is expected to close on or about April 7 Cenovus said in a statement.
