08:50 EDTVLO, WNR, TSO, MRO, EPD, PSX, HFC, PXDRefiners slip after U.S. widens oil export potential
Shares of Pioneer Natural Resources (PXD) are rising in early trading after the U.S. reportedly gave Pioneer and Enterprise Products Partners (EPD) permission to ship a type of light oil known as condensate to foreign buyers. Meanwhile, shares of refiners are trading lower following the news. WHAT'S NEW: The U.S. Department of Commerce's Bureau of Industry and Security told Pioneer Natural that putting condensate through a stabilizer was sufficient processing to qualify it to be eligible for export without a license, according to Reuters, citing a statement from the company. The Wall Street Journal also reported that the Department of Commerce had given approval via a private ruling to Pioneer and Enterprise Product Partners to export condensate. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Refiners may see their profits drop if they are forced to pay higher prices to compete with international buyers for U.S. crude. “We don’t think the current system needs to be changed,” a spokesman for Valero Energy (VLO), Bill Day, told Bloomberg. Other publicly traded refining companies include HollyFrontier (HFC), Marathon Oil (MRO), Phillips 66 (PSX), Tesoro (TSO), and Western Refining (WNR). PRICE ACTION: In pre-market trading Pioneer Natural Resources was up 2% to $226.50, while Enterprise Products Partners was up 1.7% to $77.40. Shares of several refiners' stocks were indicated to open lower, with Valero down over 4% in pre-market trading, Phillips 66 down 2.8% and Tesoro down 2.5%.

12:36 EDTEPDEnterprise Products begins open season for expansion of Panola NGL pipeline
Enterprise Products announced the start of a binding open season to seek shipper support for a proposed expansion of the portion of its Panola Pipeline Company natural gas liquids system between Carthage, Texas and Mont Belvieu, Texas. The project is designed to support Haynesville and Cotton Valley oil and gas producers by providing enhanced access to the world’s largest NGL fractionation complex, located in Mont Belvieu. Originating near Carthage in Panola County, the NGL pipeline system extends 181 miles, serving multiple destination points at Mont Belvieu, including facilities owned and operated by Enterprise. Depending on shipper response to the open season, the Panola expansion project would be designed to accommodate approximately 50,000 barrels per day of incremental capacity. Achieving the additional capacity would involve installing additional pipe, pumps and related equipment. The additional capacity is expected to be available in the first quarter of 2016. The open commitment period begins today at noon CST and will close on Friday, January 16, 2015 at 5 p.m. CST.
