08:07 EDTKMI, BRK.A, CNI, ENB, CP, TRPCanada, Keystone can learn from Buffett's BNSF railroad, WSJ reports
If you want to get a sense of what's going to happen with Canadian oil amid TransCanada's (TRP) Keystone XL pipeline battle, see Warren Buffett's (BRK.A) latest letter, reports the Wall Street Journal's "Heard on the Street." Buffett writes that his BNSF railroad company now transports 500,000 barrels of oil a day. Much is from the Bakken shale, where production growth has outpaced pipelines. The resulting local glut led the discount between Bakken oil and Brent crude to surge beyond $45 a barrel a year ago (narrowed now to $19). BNSF has driven its trains through that price gap, enabling Bakken producers to get their barrels to customers rather than slow production. Canadian oil producers face a tougher battle. Western Canadian Select is a relatively heavy grade of oil, so it should be cheaper than a lighter benchmark like Brent. But the discount, now $38 a barrel, owes much to transportation bottlenecks. The Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers forecasts production from Western Canada will hit 5.5M barrels a day by 2020, about double 2011's output. The bottom line: If Keystone doesn't get built, those ambitions will likely have to be scaled back. Reference Link

10:31 EDTCNICN announces multi-year C$500M investment to upgrade Western Canada feeder lines
CN announced a multi-year program to invest approximately C$500M in infrastructure improvements to its Western Canada feeder rail lines in Alberta, Manitoba, and Saskatchewan that are handling rising volumes of industrial products, natural resources, and energy-related commodities. In 2015, CN will allocate approximately C$100M for work on northern Alberta branch lines, investing in infrastructure upgrades and safety improvements, including heavier rail, crushed rock ballast and new ties, to ensure the network can efficiently accommodate future freight volume growth in the Peace River region. CN continues to see rising freight volumes in Western Canada, which have increased by more than 50% in the past five years. Given this growth, CN has also invested significantly in its Edmonton-Winnipeg main line corridor, installing sections of double track, extending sidings to accommodate longer more efficient trains, and improving major classification yards. CN's major investments in Western Canada are designed to increase the capacity and safety of its rail infrastructure and to allow the company to continue to grow at low incremental cost in support of Canada's trade.

17:03 EDTCP, CNIRailroad operators under pressure after Norfolk Southern guidance
Shares of railroad operators are active after Norfolk Southern (NSC) provided first quarter guidance that came in below analysts' consensus estimates. The company provided Q1 EPS guidance of $1.00, below analysts' estimates of $1.27, on revenue of $2.6B, also below analysts' estimates of $2.69B. Norfolk Southern said revenue decreases reflect reductions in fuel surcharge revenue in each of NS' three commodity groups, continued reductions in coal volumes, and a lower average revenue per unit related to the mix of business. Lower overall expenses were aided by declining fuel expense but hurt by weather and service recovery costs. PEERS: Publicly traded companies in the railroad space include CSX (CSX), Canadian National (CNI), Canadian Pacific (CP), Genesee & Wyoming (GWR), Kansas City Southern (KSU), and Union Pacific (UNP). PRICE ACTION: Norfolk Southern is down 3.9%, CSX is down 2.2%, Canadian National is lower by 0.6% and Union Pacific is lower by 1.8% in after-hours trading.
