13:21 EDTHES, MUR, COP, PSXHess trades higher after Murphy Oil spin-off news
Hess (HES) is trading up almost 4% in mid-day trading after industry peer Murphy Oil (MUR) announced it will unlock value by spinning off its U.S. fuel making business into a new company. Conoco-Phillips (COP) implemented a similar strategy earlier this year when it spun-off its fuels, petrochemicals and pipeline businesses into Phillips 66 (PSX). Hess, another integrated oil company, operates in two segments: exploration and production, and marketing and refining, making it a potential candidate for a spin off. On September 11, "Mad Money " host Jim Cramer referenced Hess on his show, noting that Hess' exploration and production side of the business is seen as unfocused. At mid-day, Hess is trading up 2.00, or 3.78%, to $54.94.

07:03 EDTCOPConocoPhillips reports Q3 ex-items EPS $1.29, consensus $1.20
Reports Q3 production of 1,473 MBOED from continuing operations, excluding Libya, representing 4% growth year-over-year when adjusted for downtime. ConocoPhillips said it "is on track to meet its previously stated growth target of 3 to 5 percent volume and margin growth in 2014. Full-year 2014 production from continuing operations, excluding Libya, is expected to be approximately 1,525 to 1,535 MBOED. Fourth-quarter 2014 production guidance for continuing operations, excluding Libya, is being adjusted to reflect anticipated impacts from the absence of ramp gas sales from APLNG to a third-party LNG project, temporary third-party infrastructure constraints in Malaysia and value-driven ethane rejection in the Lower 48. Fourth-quarter production guidance is 1,545 to 1,575 MBOED."

08:07 EDTPSXPhillips 66 reports Q3 adjusted EPS $2.02, consensus $1.75
Reports Q3 Refining earnings of $558M, compared with earnings of $390M in Q2.

16:33 EDTPSXPhillips 66 Partners announces acquisition of strategic logistics assets
Phillips 66 Partners LP (PSXP) has reached an agreement to acquire from Phillips 66 (PSX) two newly constructed crude oil rail-unloading facilities, located in Linden, New Jersey, and Ferndale, Washington, for $330M as well as certain assets associated with the Cross-Channel Connector Pipeline for an additional $10M. The acquisition, which is anticipated to close in early December 2014, is expected to be immediately accretive to unitholders. Upon closing of the acquisition, the Partnership plans to utilize the Cross-Channel Connector Pipeline assets to develop and undertake a new organic project to provide shippers access from the Partnership’s Pasadena Terminal to third-party systems located north of the Houston Ship Channel. The project is expected to have additional capital costs of $12.4M and is underwritten by long-term transportation service agreements with multiple shippers. The pipeline system will have an initial capacity of up to 180,000 barrels per day and is anticipated to commence commercial operations in the second quarter of 2015. In connection with the closing, Phillips 66 and the Partnership will enter into 10-year terminal services agreements for 100% of the available capacity of the rail-unloading facilities. The acquisition price for the rail-unloading facilities represents an approximate 10-times multiple of those facilities’ forecasted next 12 months’ earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization. The terms of the transaction were approved by the board of directors of the general partner of Phillips 66 Partners, based on the approval and recommendation of its conflicts committee.
