06:39 EDTXOM, BPEuro, U.S. oil and gas groups to find tough competition in Iran, WSJ says
European and U.S. oil and gas firms drawn to Iran as sanctions lessen can expect not only opportunities, but also Iranian companies offering tough competition or joint ventures, the Wall Street Journal reports. Though no Iran-based companies have the clout of firms such as Exxon Mobil (XOM) or Schlumberger (SLB), companies that can take on engineering tasks are emerging and growing in Iran, the report says. If the Iran nuclear agreement comes into effect and sanctions are lifted against Iran sometime soon, those Iranian companies will be well positioned to compete for tens of billions of dollars worth of service contracts, the report adds. Other publicly traded companies in the space include BP (BP), Chevron (CVX), ConocoPhillips (COP), Royal Dutch Shell (RDS.A) and Total (TOT). Reference Link

09:27 EDTBCRFDA sent C.R. Bard warning letter after facility inspection
The FDA sent C.R. Bard a warning letter after inspecting the company's Peripheral Vascular facility. The letter stated in part, "FDA is aware that your firm submitted both in-vitro and in-vivo testing demonstrating the use of the Recovery Cone Removal System, Model RC-15 for removal of the Recovery Filter (K031328), the G2X Filter (K082305), the G2 Express Filter (K080668), and the G2 Filter (K073090). However, the Recovery Cone System, Model RC-15 was not included as part of the clearances for any of the aforementioned IVC filters. Therefore, your firm is marketing the Recovery Cone Removal System, Model RC-15 in the United States without marketing clearance or approval. Percutaneous retrieval systems, such as the Recovery Cone Removal System, Model RC-15, are regulated as manual surgical instruments intended for specialized use within a specific medical specialty, and thus require marketing authorization in order to be legally marketed in the United States."

07:10 EDTRDCRowan Companies reports fleet contract status update as of July 20, 2015
Rowan Companies announced that its report of drilling rig status and contract information has been updated as of July 20, 2015. The company continues to estimate planned out-of-service time for the second quarter and full-year of 2015 to range from 3% to 6% for its jack-ups and drillships, subject to fleet repositioning and market conditions. No operational downtime is included in projected out-of-service days, but the company estimates jack-up operational downtime to account for approximately 2.5% of in-service days in current and future quarters. Rowan continues to expect drillship operational downtime to be approximately 5% after a break-in period of approximately six months up to one year. Out-of-service days are days where a rig is out-of-service and is not able to earn revenue. The company may be compensated for certain out-of-service days such as shipyard stays or transit periods preceding a contract. However, any such compensation is deferred and recognized over the period of drilling operations. Operational downtime is when a rig is under contract and unable to conduct planned operations due to equipment breakdowns or procedural failures. Unless otherwise indicated, all day rates on the fleet status include estimated amortization of contract mobilization/modification revenues. However, day rates exclude approximately $20 to $30 million of other miscellaneous aggregate annual revenue the company receives during rig operations. Day rates also exclude rebillable revenues which are equally offset by drilling expenses.

Piper Jaffray points out that shares of SeaSpine (SPNE) are down 15% since their spin-off from Integra LifeSciences (IART) on June 17. Piper attributes the weakness to non-fundamental selling by existing Integra shareholders and its analysis indicates that the worst of the selling pressure might be over. The firm keeps an Overweight rating on SeaSpine with a $24 price target.
