With the resource play renaissance in the U.S., we see dramatic oil production growth from multiple basins onshore. This has huge implications on the midstream and the downstream, as producers continue to find creative ways of selling products into the better markets.
We visited a number of pure plays in Houston, focusing on marketing challenges: Oasis Petroleum (ticker: OAS) for the Williston Basin Bakken, Rosetta Resources (ROSE) for the Eagle Ford, Magnum Hunter Resources (MHR) for the Utica and Marcellus, and Energy XXI (EXXI) for the offshore Gulf Coast.
We also saw Kirby (KEX) and Oiltanking Partners (OILT); in our view, both have much to gain from this massive transformation of our crude oil transportation complex in the U.S.
Here are the highlights:
We started the day at Oiltanking Partners' facility. The company has strategic waterfront assets and dock capacity, a crude-by-rail terminal, and is connected with 18 refineries, storage, and production facilities -- all movers and shakers in this space. The company is expanding its footprint and will have 25 million barrels of storage capacity by year-end 2014.
Kirby primarily transports petrochemicals, black oil products, and refined petroleum products. Kirby benefits from inland and coastal transportation demand, moving Canadian and Bakken crude from the Midwest and the Gulf Coast as well as moving Eagle Ford products along the Gulf Coast.
Currently, more than 60% of Williston basin oil is transported by rail while only 33% is transported by pipeline. For Oasis in particular, about 80% of its operated volumes are transported by rail to take advantage of the pricing. Currently, the majority of Oasis' operated volumes go to the Gulf Coast and the East Coast. The company's strong price realization combined with disciplined well cost reduction has led to stronger and stronger margins

Inventec, Flextronics reportedly considering merger, but both companies refute rumor
Yen-Shyang Hwang, Taipei; Joseph Tsai, DIGITIMES [Tuesday 21 September 2010]
Both Inventec and Flextronics have refuted market rumors that the two are in talks for a merger stating that the rumors are purely market speculation.
Inventec, the fourth largest notebook maker worldwide, is facing fierce competition in the notebook market and may see its market share and profit drop, so the company's executives reportedly already held several meetings with their counterparts from Flextronics and are seeking possibilities for cooperation or even a merger in order to get out of their current plight in the market, according to sources familiar with the notebook industry.
The sources pointed out that Flextronics bought Arima Computer in 2007, but the company currently is still focusing on electronic manufacturing service (EMS) because of its poor R&D. In addition, Inventec previously bought Arima's plants in Taoyuan, Taiwan to establish its cloud computing technology R&D center, and has invested in Arima Communication, a subsidiary of Arima Group. So executives in both companies have a close relationship which connects the dots between Inventec and Flextronics.
Inventec may see its notebook shipments drop to 17-18 million in 2010 from 22 million in 2009, and while Flextronics is seeing improvement in landing orders, it still does not play a key role in the supply chain. Therefore cooperation between the two should help deliver 25-30 million notebooks a year.
However, some notebook players believe Flextronics is unlikely to merge with a company with such a large scale as Inventec, which currently has a market value of over NT$48 billion (US$1.52 billion), much more than the NT$6.3 billion of Arima Computer. Meanwhile, questions such as how to merge Inventec's plants in China as well as business culture are also expected to become problems.
at the very least, it needs to get back to 15-16 to be above water.........and reinstate the dividend. so any schill for fulton ----------------- tell me why i should feel good about this company and specifically, the thousand shares i have gulping water, straight to the lungs. come on hr/pr/shareholder relations, give it your best shot.
