Kinder Morgan affirms EBITDA, DCF outlook; sees Elba in service by H1 2020

after-hours asQ3 earningsand revenues came in a bit shy of Wall Street estimates while reaffirming its full-year outlook for EBITDA and distributable cash flow.

KMI says Q3 net incomefell to $506M from $693Min the year-ago quarter because of the recognition of the gain from last years sale of its Trans Mountain project in Canada; Q3 2019 EPS was $0.22 vs. $0.25 in Q3 2018.

Distributable cash flow rose 4% Y/Y to $1.14B, due to greater contributions from the companys natural gas pipelines and products pipelines segments and lower preferred dividend payments.

Project backlog at the end of Q3 totaled $4.1B, $1.6B less than at the end of Q2 due to placing Elba Liquefaction and GCX in service.

The company says its Permian Highway Pipeline project has nearly 85% of its right-of-way secured along the route and construction activities have started on the western end of the route.

KMI expects to bring the remaining nine units of its Elba Island liquefied natural gas export facilityinto service by H1 of next year, CEO Steven Kean says.

Eldorado Gold says full-year production guidance unchanged

Eldorado Gold (NYSE:EGO) reportsQ3 gold productionjumped 20% Y/Y to 101.6K oz., totaling 276.3K oz. YTD, while maintaining FY 2019 guidance.

EGO says test results from its Kisladag mine in Turkey confirm that recoveries from leaching deeper material over 250-day cycles support an extension of mine life beyond the companys current three-year guidance; Kisladags Q3 output rose 5% Y/Y to 35.9K oz.

Q3 production at the Olympias mine in Greece was lower than planned, declining 38% Y/Y to 7.9K oz., and EGO says measures to increase volumes were continued in key areas of the operation and will support the ramp up towards 2020 and beyond.

Chevrons buyer for North Sea fields seeks alternative funding – Bloomberg

Ithaca Energy, the U.K. arm of Israeli explorer Delek Group, hasasked commodity traders to help financeits $2B acquisition of some of Chevrons (NYSE:CVX) North Sea oil and gas assets after initial funding arrangements ran into problems, Bloomberg reports.

Ithaca (OTCPK:IACAF) has secured a $100M investment from Trafigura Group and is in talks for more funds, but it still does not have the $2B it needs to complete the purchase, according to the report.

The company reportedly has received offers of funds from other traders and may ask for more, and it potentially could get additional equity by turning to its parent Delek, which is awaiting a key asset sale next month to get more cash.

Ithaca is counting on the purchase, agreed on in May and expected to close this quarter, to increase its production ahead of a possible IPO.

Netflix says competitions OK in a growing streaming pie

now in postmarket trading after itsQ3 earningsmarked a bit of a rebound fromlast quarter, when subscriber counts missed heavily.

With the streaming wars in early days, it could be another indication that consistently new high-profile content will trump library offerings, as subscriber count (net adds of 6.77M vs. last quarters 2.7M) was goosed by the third season of

the most-watched season of that series with 64M households watching in the first four weeks.

In itsinvestor letter, the company downplayed worries about upcoming streaming competition, saying its been competing in streaming for a long time.

The upcoming arrival of services like Disney Plus (NYSE:DIS), Apple TV Plus (NASDAQ:AAPL), HBO Max (NYSE:T), and Peacock (NASDAQ:CMCSA) is increased competition, but we are all small compared to linear TV, it says. The launch of these new services will be noisy. There may be some modest headwind to our near-term growth, and we have tried to factor that into our guidance. In the long term, though, we expect well continue to grow nicely given the strength of our service and the large market opportunity.

In our view, the likely outcome from the launch of these new services will be to accelerate the shift from linear TV to on demand consumption of entertainment. Just like the evolution from broadcast TV to cable, these once-in-a-generation changes are very large and open up big, new opportunities for many players.

Starting with its Q4 report in January, it will disclose revenue and membership by region, and will only provide membership guidance for global paid memberships. U.S. vs. international margin reporting is becoming less useful internally and it will stop reporting that in January.

For Q4, its forecasting $5.44B in revenue, and net streaming paid adds of 7.6M to hit 165.9M paid memberships overall.

Expectations that the U.S. Energy Information Administration would report a record surge in domestic natural gas stockpiles last week seemed to outweigh hopes of increased demand.

Tudor Pickering Holt analysts expect the EIA to say that nat gas inventories rose by 117B cf, which would be the largest weekly gain of the fall season.

The EIA forecasts 2019 dry natural gas production will average 91.6B cf/day, 10% above the 2018 average.
