08:50 EDTVLO, PSX, TSO, PXD, EPD, WNR, HFC, MRORefiners 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%.

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.
