06:09 EDTXOM, CVX, VLOBattle begins over move to end U.S. oil export ban, Bloomberg reports
Nearly 40 years after the Arab oil embargo, political leaders are beginning to contemplate lifting restrictions on the export of U.S. crude oil, reports Bloomberg. Alaska senator Murkowski, top Republican on the Senate’s energy committee, and the American Petroleum Institute, held events yesterday to push to end the ban. U.S. Energy Secretary Moniz has said it’s time to revisit the policy. But lifting the ban will run into political resistance, and it could take years, analysts say. Reference Link

17:02 EDTVLOValero sees Q2 EPS $1.10-$1.25, consensus $1.39
Valero's refining segment operating income is expected to be higher in the second quarter of 2014 versus the second quarter of 2013 primarily due to higher throughput volumes, as well as wider discounts on sour crude oil and certain types of North American light crude oil, which offset weaker year-over-year gasoline and distillate margins in most regions. In addition, Valero's ethanol segment operating income is expected to be higher in the second quarter of 2014 versus the second quarter of 2013 mainly due to higher gross margins. Valero also expects to report a loss from discontinued operations of $63M, or 12c per share, related primarily to a noncash charge associated with recognizing an asset retirement obligation for the Aruba refinery.
