15:03 EDTTWTRTwitter founder Dorsey reported to be named permanent CEO
Shares of Twitter (TWTR) remain about 3% higher in afternoon trading after Re/code reported that founder and interim CEO Jack Dorsey is set to be named permanent Chief Executive. DORSEY: Jack Dorsey is expected to be named permanent CEO of Twitter as soon as Thursday, Re/code's Kara Swisher and Kurt Wagner reported this afternoon, citing sources. The company is also likely to reconfigure its board of directors, beginning with the departure of former CEO Dick Costolo, the report said. DUAL ROLES: Re/code noted that Dorsey will remain as CEO of Square, the payments company he founded in 2009. As recently as September 25, Fortune reported that Square plans to file for an initial public offering within weeks, and in a thinly-veiled reference to Dorsey's commitments to Square, the Twitter board of directors has previously commented that running the micro-blogging site requires a "full-time commitment." PRODUCT CHANGES: Re/code reported on Tuesday that Twitter is looking to break its trademark 140-character limit with new long-form content products. The news comes as Twitter struggles to expand its user base and appeal to advertisers, having launched multiple ad products in recent months while overhauling its front page to capture so-called logged out users. PRICE ACTION: Twitter shares are up about 3% to $26.33 in afternoon trading following Re/code's report.

13:42 EDTKMIKinder Morgan announces additional gas capacity commitments to NED project
Kinder Morgan announced that its subsidiary, Tennessee Gas Pipeline Company, has executed agreements with producers, local distribution companies and a New York end-use market participant totaling 627,000 dekatherms per day for the Supply Path component of the proposed Northeast Energy Direct Project. The agreements will provide a direct supply link from abundant natural gas fields in Pennsylvania to existing and future Northeast and New England markets, and firm transport of incremental supplies for delivery at or near Wright, New York. From the Wright area, shippers can deliver into the Market Path component of the NED project for transport to Dracut, Massachusetts, or into TGP's existing pipeline system or into the Iroquois Gas Transmission system. The incremental gas supplies will help meet New York and New England's growing consumer and industrial gas needs, as well as helping to bolster electric reliability in the region. TGP is continuing to negotiate with additional potential shippers on the NED project, including LDCs and others, and expects to announce these commitments and others at a later date. NED's Supply Path component, from northeastern Pennsylvania to Wright, New York, is scalable up to 1.2 billion cubic feet per day, and its Market Path component is scalable up to 1.3 Bcf/d. The NED project, including the Supply Path and Market Path components, has a planned in-service date of November 2018, subject to regulatory approvals. Additionally, the NED Supply Path component and associated agreements are subject to approval by the Kinder Morgan board of directors.

13:01 EDTENLKAnalyst says Sanchez Energy's asset sale to strengthen liquidity position
Shares of Sanchez Energy (SN) surged after the company said it plans to sell certain Eagle Ford Shale midstream assets to Sanchez Production Partners (SPP) for $345M. WHAT'S NEW: Sanchez Energy said it reached an agreement with Sanchez Production Partners under which SPP will acquire and operate certain midstream assets located on the Western part of its Catarina asset in the Eagle Ford Shale in South Texas for cash consideration of roughly $345M. As part of the divestiture, Sanchez Energy said it will sell roughly 150 miles of midstream gathering lines and associated midstream infrastructure concentrated in four gathering and processing facilities. The deal is expected to close in October. In a statement, Sanchez Energy chief Executive Officer Tony Sanchez III said the midstream sale "highlights our ability to capture the full spectrum of value in our asset base, raise capital outside of traditional markets and improve our financial flexibility." Sanchez Energy also confirmed this morning that its third quarter 2015 average production will "likely meet or exceed" the high end of the previous guidance range of 46,000-50,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day. The company said it is still confident that it can build a 20-30 well bank toward its 50-well per year drilling commencement at Catarina at its current rig count. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Affiliates of Pioneer Natural Resources (PXD) and Reliance Holding USA sold off pipelines and other midstream assets in the Eagle Ford to Enterprise Product Partners (EPD) in July for $2.15B to be paid in two installments, and Matador Resources (MTDR) recently sold off similar assets to EnLink Midstream Partners (ENLK) for $143M. Meanwhile, Sanchez Production Partners said it will recommend that the board of directors of its general partner approve a plan to start distributions at an initial annualized rate of $1.60 per share. STREET RESEARCH: Northland Capital Markets analyst Jeff Grampp said that the proceeds from the announced asset sale will strengthen Sanchez Energy's "already meaningful" liquidity position and set up the company well for opportunistic acquisitions. The analyst said that even though the company previously discussed the possible sale of midstream assets, the move's value capture is "meaningfully positive" and underappreciated by the market. Grampp reiterated an Outperform rating and $12 price target on the stock. PRICE ACTION: In midday trading, Sanchez Energy is up 5.82% to $5.64 and Sanchez Production Partners is up 88.89% to $8.84.

06:20 EDTBPBP not concerned over hostile takeover due to Macondo disclaimer, Bloomberg says
BP, which is allegedly readying defenses for potential acquisition offers, isn't concerned about a hostile takeover because of a disclaimer in its Macondo spill settlement that could put $12.6B onto the price tag, Bloomberg reports. A potential buyer may have to accelerate the payment of as much as two-thirds of the $18.7B in penalties BP agreed to pay the U.S. and several states, the report says, citing company filings. An option that provides the government and certain states the power to demand faster payment in a takeover basically hands them a veto over any deal, the report says. Reference Link
