With KM making a big play for El Paso, STO buying BEXP and XOM took out XTO, those are big fish in the gas arena. Who be a suitor for OKE. What makes sense? Or does OKE go after someone?
In the pipelines sector, I think WMB may be the likely next buyout candidate (after WMB spins off the E&P assets by year end). Maybe Enbridge or Transcanada might buy them.
Looks like WMB is not spinning off E&P.
