08:19 EDTBKEP, OILTBlueknight Energy Partners announces pipeline project
Blueknight Energy Partners (BKEP) announced plans to build a pipeline linking the emerging East Texas Eaglebine/Woodbine crude oil resource play to Oiltanking Houston, a crude oil and product terminal on the Houston Ship Channel, owned and operated by Oiltanking Partners (OILT). The project is backed by long-term shipper commitments, one of which is a transportation agreement with a joint venture between Vitol, a diversified multinational energy company, which also owns 50% of BKEP’s general partner, and SEI Energy. Blueknight will construct a 160-mile, 16-inch diameter pipeline originating in Madison County and running south through Leon, Walker and Houston counties. The pipeline will have an initial capacity of 100K BPD, will be expandable up to 200K BPD and serve Eaglebine/Woodbine crude oil producers via two origination stations located near North Zulch and Madisonville with a third station near Roans Prairie planned to accommodate future production growth in the area. The pipeline will have the capability to segregate and batch crude oil in order to help producers capture value for this premium product. Construction on the pipeline will start immediately and is expected to be complete by March 2016. The pipeline is estimated to cost approximately $300M, subject to final pipeline design and shipper commitments, and is anticipated to be financed using a combination of debt and equity.

08:35 EDTOILTEnterprise Products, Oiltanking Partners enter into merger agreement
Enterprise Products Partners (EPD) and Oiltanking Partners (OILT) announced that Enterprise and Oiltanking Partners have entered into a merger agreement. Under the terms of the merger agreement, Oiltanking Partners would merge with a subsidiary of Enterprise in a unit-for-unit exchange. Unitholders of Oiltanking Partners would receive 1.3 Enterprise common units for each Oiltanking Partners common unit. This exchange ratio represents a 5.6 percent premium to Oiltanking Partners unitholders based on the respective closing prices for Enterprise and Oiltanking Partners common units on September 30, 2014, the day before the merger was originally proposed. Relative to the respective closing prices for Enterprise and Oiltanking Partners common units on November 10, 2014, the day before the parties entered into the merger agreement, the 1.3 exchange ratio represents a 10.4 percent premium to Oiltanking Partners unitholders. Based on the latest cash distribution declared by Enterprise and Oiltanking Partners with respect to the third quarter of 2014, this exchange ratio would result in a 74 percent increase in cash distributions for Oiltanking Partners unitholders. The approval and adoption of the merger agreement require approval by holders of a majority of the outstanding Oiltanking Partners common units. A subsidiary of Enterprise, which will own a sufficient number of Oiltanking Partners common units to approve the merger on behalf of all Oiltanking Partners unitholders, has executed a support agreement with Oiltanking Partners in which it has irrevocably agreed to consent to the merger. This subsidiary will own approximately 54.8 million Oiltanking Partners common units, or approximately 66 percent of the total Oiltanking Partners common units then outstanding, following the conversion of approximately 38.9 million Oiltanking Partners subordinated units into common units. The one-for-one conversion of these subordinated units into common units will occur on November 17, 2014, the business day immediately following payment of the Oiltanking Partners cash distribution scheduled to be paid on November 14, 2014. Approval and adoption of the merger agreement will be submitted to a vote of the unitholders of Oiltanking Partners. Upon completion of the merger, which is expected to occur in early 2015, the total consideration paid by Enterprise for the Oiltanking Partners general partner and related incentive distribution rights and the limited partner units would be approximately $6.0 billion. The merger terms were negotiated, reviewed and approved by the conflicts committee of the board of directors of the general partner of Oiltanking Partners and approved by the board of directors of the general partner of Oiltanking Partners.
