12:02 EDTPSXPhillips 66 receives board approval to move forward with investment in Texas
Phillips 66 has received approval from its board of directors to move forward with both its Sweeny Fractionator One and Freeport Liquefied Petroleum Gas Export Terminal. These two projects represent an investment of more than $3B as part of the company’s Midstream growth program. The Sweeny Fractionator One will be located in Old Ocean, Texas, close to the company’s Sweeny Refinery, and will supply purity natural gas liquids (NGL) products to the petrochemical industry and heating markets. Y-grade supply to the fractionator will come from nearby major pipelines, including the recently completed Sand Hills Pipeline, in which Phillips 66 owns a direct one-third interest. The 100,000 barrel-per-day NGL fractionator is expected to start up in the third quarter of 2015. The Freeport LPG Export Terminal will be located at the site of the company’s existing marine terminal in Freeport, Texas, and will leverage Phillips 66 midstream, transportation and storage infrastructure to supply petrochemical, heating and transportation markets globally. The terminal will have an initial export capacity of 4.4 million barrels per month, the equivalent of eight very large gas carriers with a ship loading rate of 36,000 barrels per hour. Startup of the export terminal is expected in mid-2016.

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.
