Kinder Morgan announced that its Texas Intrastate Pipelines group has entered into a 20-year firm transportation services agreement with SK E&S LNG, a subsidiary of SK E&S Co. LTD. Under the agreement, KMI will invest more than $150M to provide more than 320,000 dekatherms per day of firm natural gas transportation services to support SK LNG’s Train III liquefied natural gas export capacity at Quintana Island, Texas. This Train is part of Freeport LNG Development’s Freeport LNG export facility which in total will liquefy up to 13.2 million tonnes per annum once fully operational. KMI will construct and operate approximately 40 miles of pipeline extending from its existing Kinder Morgan Tejas mainline to an interconnection point with Freeport LNG’s existing pipeline located in Stratton Ridge, Texas. KMI will also expand and construct additional compression on its existing Kinder Morgan Texas and Kinder Morgan Tejas pipeline systems to provide these services upon the startup of Train III, which is expected to occur in the third quarter of 2019. This transportation services agreement provides for the required expansion of the KMI intrastate system by over 1 billion cubic feet per day and will provide additional capacity to the Freeport and Chocolate Bayou areas. The agreements are subject to certain conditions, as well as making a final investment decision to construct the Freeport LNG Train III Liquefaction Project.

Actuate Corporation (BIRT) announced that it has entered into an agreement to be acquired by OpenText (OTEX). Under the terms of the merger agreement, an affiliate of OpenText will commence a tender offer to the Actuate stockholders to purchase any and all shares of common stock they hold for $6.60 in cash per share. The purchase price represents an approximately 89% premium to the closing price of Actuate common stock on December 4, 2014, and an equity value of approximately $330M.

The Board of Directors of Actuate has unanimously approved the transaction. The transaction is expected to close in 1Q15, subject to Actuate stockholders tendering a majority of Actuate’s outstanding shares pursuant to the tender offer and other customary closing conditions, including regulatory approvals.
