14:39 EDTTLP, KMPTransmontaigne Partners acquires ownership interest in BOSTCO project
TransMontaigne Partners (TLP) announced that effective December 20, it acquired a 42.5% ownership interest for approximately $79M in Battleground Oil Specialty Terminal Company (BOSTCO), which is developing a new black oil terminal facility on the Houston Ship Channel for handling residual fuel, feedstocks, distillates and other black oils. In connection with its acquisition, TLP has committed to make its pro rata share of the future capital contributions required to complete the initial phase of the BOSTCO project. The initial phase of the BOSTCO project, which is supported by long term contracts with customers, involves construction of 50 storage tanks with approximately 6.1M barrels of storage capacity at an estimated cost of approximately $425M. The BOSTCO facility's docks will benefit from one of the deepest vessel drafts and nearest access points in the Houston Ship Channel and will be well positioned to capitalize on increasing exports of petroleum related products. Our investment in BOSTCO was funded with cash on hand and borrowings under our amended and restated senior secured credit facility provided by a syndicate of banks. In connection with our investment in BOSTCO, our credit facility was amended to increase the maximum revolving credit amount from $250M-$350M. The BOSTCO facility is scheduled to begin initial commercial operation in the fourth quarter of 2013. Completion of the full 6.1M barrels of storage capacity and related infrastructure is scheduled for early 2014. A subsidiary of Kinder Morgan Energy Partners, L.P. (KMP) will manage the day to day operations of the BOSTCO project.

06:29 EDTKMPKinder Morgan Trans Mountain pipeline expansion meets opposition, WSJ says
Kinder Morgan's $4.3B proposal to burrow through Burnaby Mountain is encountering opposition in nearby Vancouver, reports the Wall Street Journal. Kinder's proposed expansion would triple the capacity of the Trans Mountain pipeline and allow Alberta oil sands producer to move 890,000 BPD, while Kinder says it is already planning to increase crude oil shiploads to foreign markets to 34 ships per month. The company plans to start construction in 2016 and complete the project by late 2017, though the expansion is still being reviewed by Canadian regulators who aren't expected to issue a verdict until early 2016.
