For the year ended December 31, 2019, net income attributable to ordinary shares was $4.0B or $4.28 per share contrast to $3.5B or $3.92 per share in 2018. Per share results reflect the dilutive impact of ordinary shares issued under our Corporate At-The-Market (ATM) program in 2018 and under our DRP.

Comparable EBITDA reduced by $138M to $2.3B for the three months ended December 31, 2019 contrast to the same period in 2018 primarily Because of the net effect of the following:
lower contribution from Canadian Natural Gas Pipelines primarily reflecting lower flow-through income taxes and depreciation as well as lower incentive earnings in the Canadian Mainline Because of recording the full-year impact of the Canadian Mainline 2018-2020 Tolls Review (NEB 2018 Decision) in fourth quarter 2018.Because of the flow-through treatment of certain expenses including income taxes and depreciation on our Canadian rate-regulated pipelines, the decrease in these expenses impacts our comparable EBITDA despite having no important effect on net income
lower contribution from Liquids Pipelines primarily Because of reduced volumes on the Keystone Pipeline System, lower margins on liquids marketing activities and the impact of the sale of an 85 per cent equity interest in Northern Courier on July 17, 2019
higher contribution from U.S. Natural Gas Pipelines mainly Because of incremental earnings from Columbia Gas growth projects placed in service, partially offset by reduced earnings from the sale of certain Columbia midstream assets on August 1, 2019 and from Bison (wholly owned by TC PipeLines, LP) following a 2018 contract with two consumers to pay out their future contract revenues and terminate the contracts
higher contribution from Power and Storage primarily Because of increased Bruce Power results from a higher realized power price and higher volumes, partially offset by lower results from our Alberta cogeneration plants and the sale of the Coolidge generating station on May 21, 2019
higher equity earnings from our investment in the Sur de Texas pipeline which was placed in service in September 2019, at which time we began recording equity income from operations. Previous to in-service, Sur de Texas equity income primarily reflected an allowance for funds used during construction (AFUDC), net of our proportionate share of interest expense on inter-associate loans from its partners. Our share of this interest expense is fully offset in Interest income and other.
