08:50 EDTWNR, TSO, MRO, EPD, PSX, HFC, PXD, VLORefiners 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%.
