18:23 EDTMWEMarkWest Energy, The Energy & Minerals Group to expand Hopedale complex
MarkWest Energy Partners and The Energy & Minerals Group announced plans to add additional capacity at their Hopedale fractionation and marketing complex in Harrison County, Ohio in order to meet growing natural gas liquids production in the Utica and Marcellus Shales under new contracted commitments from numerous producer customers. The Hopedale complex is jointly owned by a subsidiary of MarkWest and MarkWest Utica EMG, a joint venture between the Partnership and EMG. The expansion will double the propane and heavier fractionation capacity at the Hopedale complex to 120,000 barrels per day and is expected to be operational in the first quarter of 2015. MarkWest and MarkWest Utica EMG are committed to developing world-class fractionation capacity in the Northeast, as these facilities are critical for producers achieving the highest price for their valuable NGLs. Once the Hopedale expansion is complete, MarkWest will operate 300,000 Bbl/d of ethane and heavier fractionation capacity at four complexes in the Northeast. The Partnership also has an NGL gathering pipeline connecting its Hopedale complex to its industry-leading NGL infrastructure in the Marcellus Shale. NGL takeaway solutions to the Gulf Coast and international markets will be complementary to existing fractionation infrastructure and will provide producers with additional market outlets that are crucial to the long-term development of the region.

09:29 EDTMWEMarkWest Energy says ISS recommends investors vote for combination with MPLX
MarkWest Energy Partners (MWE) announced that Institutional Shareholder Services, an independent proxy advisory firm, has issued a report recommending that MarkWest unitholders vote FOR the combination of MPLX (MPLX) and MarkWest. In recommending that unitholders vote in favor of the MarkWest-MPLX combination, ISS's report, issued on November 17, 2015 stated: "Given the premium to the unaffected price at announcement, the subsequent cash increases in the merger consideration, and the strategic advantages of the combination -- including both the access to relatively more certain capital sources at a lower cost of capital and the ability to de-risk certain growth opportunities with Marathon as its parent -- a vote FOR the merger is warranted."

06:32 EDTMWEMPLX and MarkWest combination receives further cash consideration from Marathon
MPLX (MPLX) and MarkWest Energy (MWE) announced that, in connection with the anticipated combination of MPLX and MarkWest, Marathon Petroleum (MPC) has agreed to further increase the amount of the one-time cash consideration payable to MarkWest common unitholders to $6.20 per unit, up from the cash consideration previously announced on Nov. 10, 2015, of approximately $5.21 per unit. This cash consideration represents a significant enhancement to the initial July 13, 2015, offer which was approximately $3.37 per unit. Under the revised terms of the merger agreement announced today, which represents the best and final offer, MarkWest common unitholders will receive approximately $1.28 billion in total cash consideration and 1.09 MPLX common units per MarkWest common unit, for a total consideration of approximately $51.74 per MarkWest common unit, based on the closing price of MPLX's common units on Nov. 16, 2015. Three of MarkWest's largest unitholders, Kayne Anderson Capital Advisors, L.P., Tortoise Capital Advisors, L.L.C., and, as previously announced, The Energy & Minerals Group, which cumulatively represent more than 15 percent of MarkWest's outstanding units entitled to vote, have all entered into voting agreements to vote in favor of the transaction. The merger is also recommended by each of the boards of MPC, MPLX and MarkWest, and the executive management of both partnerships strongly support the transaction and its revised terms. The combination will create one of the largest master limited partnerships, which is expected to generate a mid-20 percent compound annual distribution growth rate through 2019. The transaction is subject to approval by MarkWest unitholders and other customary closing conditions and, subject to the satisfaction of those conditions, is expected to close in December 2015. The date of the special meeting of MarkWest common unitholders is Dec. 1, 2015. MarkWest unitholders of record as of Oct. 5, 2015, will be entitled to vote on approval of the merger and the associated proposals.
