17:09 EDTSU, GEGE, Suncor announce new investments in Alberta oil sands
GE (GE) and Suncor Energy (SU) announced the signing of two agreements which provide the opportunity for an investment of up to approximately $18M. These agreements, involving other members from Canada's Oil Sands Innovation Alliance, or COSIA,, are expected to enable the development of new technologies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and water usage in the oil sands. One agreement relates to a promising oil sands water treatment pilot project expected to reduce water use, energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions, while simultaneously reducing capital and operating costs for in situ oil sands operators. An existing partnership between GE, Suncor and Alberta Innovates - Energy and Environment Solutions, or AI-EES, has been extended into a Joint Industry Project within the collaboration framework of COSIA. In addition to this pilot project, six COSIA member companies have also signed a Memorandum of Understanding to pursue other Joint Industry Projects with a potential investment of up to approximately $13M. These projects are expected to develop technologies leading to even further environmental performance improvements, primarily in the areas of greenhouse gas reductions and advances in water treatment technology.

10:57 EDTSUCanadian energy stocks rise after Talisman acquired by Repsol
Shares of Canadian energy companies are higher this morning after Repsol (REPYY) announced plans to buy Talisman Energy (TLM) for $8 per share in cash. WHAT'S NEW: Canada-based Talisman announced that it has agreed to be acquired by Spain's Repsol in a transaction valued at approximately $13B, including debt. Under the terms of the agreement, Repsol will buy all outstanding common shares of Talisman for $8 per share in cash. Also under the deal, Talisman will pay aggregate cash dividends of 18c per common share prior to closing. The Talisman board is recommending shareholders accept the deal at a special meeting to be held in mid-February 2015. The transaction is expected to close in the second quarter of 2015, Talisman said. Talisman Chairman Chuck Williamson noted that the deal will create "significant and immediate value" for the company's investors. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Repsol first explored a bid for Talisman in July, but talks slowed in late August. Earlier this month, Bloomberg reported the companies revived talks and The Wall Street Journal said "talks moved quickly" from there. Canada Pension Plan Investment Board, which initially considered buying parts of Talisman, was also weighing a bid for the whole company, according to Bloomberg, citing people with knowledge of the matter. ANALYST REACTION: Talisman Energy was downgraded this morning to Market Perform from Outperform at Bernstein. PRICE ACTION: Talisman Energy is up $2.43, or 47.5%, to $7.55 in morning trading and Repsol shares trading in New York are down 1.5% to $19.15. OTHERS TO WATCH: Other Canadian energy companies traded in New York include Encana (ECA), Suncor (SU), Canadian Natural Resource (CNQ) and Imperial Oil (IMO). Of note, Encana this morning announced a 2015 capital program of $2.7B-$2.9B, with about 80% directed to the Montney, Duvernay, Eagle Ford and Permian, its highest margin growth plays. The company expects total cash flow between $2.5B-$2.7B, reflecting the impact of higher margin production and continued cost efficiencies, partially offset by anticipated lower commodity prices. In morning trading, Encana shares rose 9.2% to $12.69, Suncor gained 5.3% to $28.33, Canadian Natural Resource added 4.8% to $28.62 and Imperial Oil advanced 2.5% to $40.88.
