06:32 EDTPSXPhillips 66 downgraded to Sell from Neutral at Goldman
Goldman analyst Neil Mehta downgraded Phillips 66 to Sell and lowered his price target to $85 from $92 on shares. Mehta said Phillips 66 has lower free cash flow generation than peers and its higher distillate product exposure makes the refining segment less advantaged. The analyst sees limited growth opportunities for new crude infrastructure in the midstream business and expects the chemicals business to decline in 2016 if Brent prices stat below its $50/bbl forecast.

Canaccord believes Pioneer Natural (PXD) would be the most likely large cap takeover candidate in the E&P space, but said there is no way a major could make it an immediately accretive asset. The firm also thinks Callon Petroleum (CPE) would be the most likely small to mid-cap acquisition candidate given its high quality core Midland acreage and relatively cheap valuation.

06:32 EDTMPCMPLX and MarkWest combination receives further cash consideration from Marathon
MPLX (MPLX) and MarkWest Energy (MWE) announced that, in connection with the anticipated combination of MPLX and MarkWest, Marathon Petroleum (MPC) has agreed to further increase the amount of the one-time cash consideration payable to MarkWest common unitholders to $6.20 per unit, up from the cash consideration previously announced on Nov. 10, 2015, of approximately $5.21 per unit. This cash consideration represents a significant enhancement to the initial July 13, 2015, offer which was approximately $3.37 per unit. Under the revised terms of the merger agreement announced today, which represents the best and final offer, MarkWest common unitholders will receive approximately $1.28 billion in total cash consideration and 1.09 MPLX common units per MarkWest common unit, for a total consideration of approximately $51.74 per MarkWest common unit, based on the closing price of MPLX's common units on Nov. 16, 2015. Three of MarkWest's largest unitholders, Kayne Anderson Capital Advisors, L.P., Tortoise Capital Advisors, L.L.C., and, as previously announced, The Energy & Minerals Group, which cumulatively represent more than 15 percent of MarkWest's outstanding units entitled to vote, have all entered into voting agreements to vote in favor of the transaction. The merger is also recommended by each of the boards of MPC, MPLX and MarkWest, and the executive management of both partnerships strongly support the transaction and its revised terms. The combination will create one of the largest master limited partnerships, which is expected to generate a mid-20 percent compound annual distribution growth rate through 2019. The transaction is subject to approval by MarkWest unitholders and other customary closing conditions and, subject to the satisfaction of those conditions, is expected to close in December 2015. The date of the special meeting of MarkWest common unitholders is Dec. 1, 2015. MarkWest unitholders of record as of Oct. 5, 2015, will be entitled to vote on approval of the merger and the associated proposals.
