08:04 EDTPSXP, PSXPhillips 66 growing Midstream and Chemicals through $4.6B capital program
Phillips 66 is growing its Midstream and Chemicals segments, while enhancing returns in Refining. As previously announced, the company is implementing this strategy through its planned $4.6B 2014 capital program, including its share of joint venture capital spending of $1.9B. In Midstream, as previously announced, the company is advancing development of a 100,000 barrel-per-day natural gas liquids fractionator to be located in Old Ocean, Texas. Phillips 66 also expects to build a liquefied petroleum gas terminal in Freeport, Texas, to help meet growing global demand. Final investment decisions for these projects will be submitted for board approval during the first quarter of 2014. The company will also seek growth opportunities through Phillips 66 Partners (PSXP). By the end of the fourth quarter, the company’s Transportation business had taken delivery of all 2,000 railcars it ordered in 2012. The new railcars are being used to transport advantaged crude to Phillips 66 refineries. The company successfully completed an open-season for the Cross-Channel Connector project, which will include reactivating an idled pipeline to connect refineries and storage terminals on the south side of the Houston Ship Channel with pipeline systems on the north side.

The EPA announced it is finalizing the volume requirements and associated percentage standards that apply under the RFS program in calendar years 2014, 2015, and 2016 for cellulosic biofuel, biomass-based diesel, advanced biofuel, and total renewable fuel. EPA is also finalizing the volume requirement for biomass-based diesel for 2017. The final 2016 standard for advanced biofuel is nearly 1 billion gallons, or 35 percent, higher than the actual 2014 volumes, while the total renewable standard requires growth from 2014 to 2016 of over 1.8 billion gallons of biofuel, or 11% higher than 2014 actual volumes. The EPA set the renewable fuel target for 2015 at 16.93B gallons and the 2016 target at 18.11B gallons. Companies involved in renewable fuel production include Pacific Ethanol (PEIX), Gevo (GEVO), Renewable Energy (REGI), FutureFuel (FF) and Amyris (AMRS).

06:32 EDTPSXPhillips 66 downgraded to Sell from Neutral at Goldman
Goldman analyst Neil Mehta downgraded Phillips 66 to Sell and lowered his price target to $85 from $92 on shares. Mehta said Phillips 66 has lower free cash flow generation than peers and its higher distillate product exposure makes the refining segment less advantaged. The analyst sees limited growth opportunities for new crude infrastructure in the midstream business and expects the chemicals business to decline in 2016 if Brent prices stat below its $50/bbl forecast.
