Exterran Partners, L.P. (EXLP) and Exterran Holdings, Inc. (EXH) announced that Exterran Partners has entered into an agreement to acquire natural gas compression assets from MidCon Compression, L.L.C., a subsidiary of Chesapeake Energy Corporation (CHK), for approximately $135M. The assets to be acquired include 162 compression units, with a total horsepower of approximately 110,000. The majority of the units currently are being used to provide compression services to BHP Billiton Petroleum (BHP) in Arkansas’ Fayetteville Shale. In connection with the acquisition, the contract operations services agreement with BHP Billiton Petroleum will be assigned to Exterran Partners effective as of the closing. “We expect the transaction to be immediately accretive to distributable cash flow per limited partner unit,” said David Miller, Senior Vice President and CFO of Exterran Partners’ managing general partner. “As a result of this acquisition, we expect to recommend to the Board of Exterran Partners’ managing general partner that Exterran Partners increase the distribution to limited partner unit holders by an incremental $0.02 per limited partner unit on an annualized basis, or an incremental $0.005 per limited partner unit on a quarterly basis, beginning in the quarter that the transaction closes.” Exterran Partners and Exterran Holdings do not expect that the Omnibus Agreement between Exterran Partners and Exterran Holdings will be amended to adjust the caps on operating costs or selling, general and administrative costs as a result of this transaction. The acquisition, which is expected to be financed using credit available under Exterran Partners’ revolving credit facility, is subject to closing conditions and is expected to close in the third quarter 2014.

05:57 EDTBHPBHP Billiton reports FY14 underlying profit $13.45B vs. $12.21B last year
BHP said capital and exploration expenditure is expected to decline to $14.5Bin the 2015 financial year and be no more than $14B should the proposed demerger be implemented. "By maintaining an internal focus and concentrating investment in our major basins we believe an average rate of return of greater than 20% is achievable for our favoured development options," the company said. It added, "With robust volume growth and further productivity gains expected, we remain confident in the outlook for the Group. On this basis, we increased our full-year progressive base dividend by 4% to 121 US cents per share for an Underlying payout ratio of 48%. We will seek to steadily increase or at least maintain the dividend per share in US dollar terms at each half-yearly payment following the demerger, implying a higher payout ratio."
