The OPEC deal and two new pipelines to be built in Western Canada saw my favorite oil & gas stocks tick higher – much higher in some cases. And, this should be just the beginning!
As supply and demand come back into balance, Western Canadian producers should find prices sufficient to fund growth without adding to debt. At the same time, the Trans Mountain pipeline will provide access to tidewater and the upgraded Enbridge line will provide a bit more capacity, both of which should act to shrink the differential between Alberta prices and West Texas Intermediate, currently somewhere in the low-to-mid teens. Both projects are expected to be complete by 2019, easing major transportation bottlenecks.
A run-down of today’s action shows the leverage on the day of the announcement:
Penn West (NYSE:PWE) gained $0.17 per share or 10.8%
Pengrowth (NYSE:PGH) added $0.23 or 17.8%
Enerplus (NYSE:ERF) tacked on $1.29 or 17.5%
All three of these names remain undervalued in my opinion. All three have -made significant progress in de-levering their balance sheets (although PGH still has a way to go to be out of the woods entirely). All three expect to fund their capital outlays through internally generated cash flows and still reduce debt even further.
