Nucor restructures natural gas supply agreements

Nucor (NUE) announced that it has concluded several transactions to improve its access to a long-term supply of natural gas. Nucor has purchased 49% of Encana's (ECA) leasehold interest covering approximately 54,000 acres in the South Piceance Basin. Further, Nucor and Encana also terminated the two Carry and Earning drilling agreements entered into in 2010 and 2012, and Nucor sold its 50% equity interest in Hunter Ridge Energy Services LLC to Encana. Hunter Ridge is a gas gathering and water service provider formed by Nucor and Encana in 2012 to support the joint well development in the North Piceance Basin. Under the new structure, Nucor has acquired 49% of Encana's leasehold interest in certain mineral leases to all depths, compared to the limited contractual commitments to participate in drilled wells that the company had under the original C&E agreements. This ownership structure provides Nucor full discretion on its participation in all future drilling capital investment. By canceling the C&E drilling agreements, Nucor has eliminated all future carry capital and all contingent liabilities associated with those contracts, which should result in lower unit cost for any future drilling. Nucor retains all existing producing wells it currently owns. To support Nucor's operating wells and potential future well developments on the 54,000 acres, Nucor has entered into long-term agreements directly with existing third party gathering and processing service providers.

BofA/Merrill cautious on US steel prices correcting into 2H 2016
BofA/Merrill analyst Timma Tanners is cautious on U.S. steel prices correcting into 2H 2016 and expects foreign tons to target the U.S. to shrink the U.S. premium. The analyst lowered Q4 HRC spot price to $520/st from $570/st and trimmed 2H 2016 volume assumptions due to inventory destocking and shorter lead times. As a result, Tanners lowered price target on U.S. Steel (X) to $16 from $21 , Reliance Steel (RS) to $78 from $84, Nucor (NUE) to $50 from $55, Steel Dynamics (STLD) to $27 from $28, and Commercial Metals (CMC) to $15 from $16.
