16:15 EDTAPCAnadarko expects to reduce capital program by nearly 50% for 2016
The company said, "As we consider capital allocation for 2016, greater market dislocation appears likely, and the need to again materially lower our capital spending, while continuing to pursue value creation and preservation, is our best course of action. In light of this, we anticipate recommending to our Board an initial 2016 budget of approximately $2.8 billion, which would be nearly 50 percent lower than our actual 2015 capital investments and almost 70 percent lower than 2014. On March 1, we will host an investor conference call and look forward to going into greater detail at that time about our definitive 2016 capital plans and expectations. We believe the accomplishments achieved in 2015, coupled with the steps we are taking in 2016 to materially reduce our capital spending, leverage our competitive advantages and protect our balance sheet, will serve our shareholders well. These actions should enable us to successfully manage through the current market volatility and position Anadarko for future success."

07:36 EDTAPCAnalysts still predicting mergers as oil slump drags on, WSJ reports
Bankers and analysts have been predicting a wave of merger activity will come almost since crude prices began to fall from over $100 a barrel, but the only big acquisition by an oil major so far has been Shell's (RDS.A) purchase of BG Group (BRGYY), said The Wall Street Journal, which added that analysts still believe deal-making is likely to return this year if prices continue to languish. With Chevron (CVX) set to report today and its big peers soon to follow, analysts are expecting the four biggest publicly traded Western oil companies to have their weakest combined profits since 1998, the Journal noted. The report noted that U.S. shale oil producers, such as Apache (APA) and Whiting Petroleum (WLL), were previously targeted though potential sellers were reluctant to accept offers as they hoped for a rebound in oil prices and potential buyers wondered if any deal struck would look expensive if crude prices fell further, but "both impediments are gone now," the Journal contends.

06:07 EDTHALHalliburton upgraded to Buy from Accumulate at KLR Group
KLR Group analyst Darren Gacicia upgraded Halliburton (HAL) to Buy saying the risk/reward is favorable at current share levels. North America should be the first region to increase oil production activity in a recovery, and Halliburton has high exposure, Gacicia tells investors in a research note. Further, investor concerns related to the Baker Hughes (BHI) merger may present a positive catalyst for the shares whether the merger is completed or terminated, the analyst contends. He believes both companies remain motivated to complete the deal. Gacicia keeps a $44 price target for Halliburton shares. The oil services company closed yesterday up 12c to $29.06.
