(Reuters) - Enbridge Inc has boosted its capital growth plan to C$44 billion ($39.3 billion) through 2018, with Canada's largest pipeline operator looking to rebalance its asset mix to include more gas after its current oil pipeline build out.

Speaking at an investor event in Toronto, chief executive Al Monaco said that the industry will continue to face challenges building new pipelines, but that the company must "manage through" those challenges.
