Murphy Oil May Divest Montney Midstream Assets

Murphy Oil Corporation (NYSE:MUR) may consider divesting its Montney midstream assets in northeast British Columbia. Roger Jenkins, President and Chief Executive Officer of the company said that the company was currently reviewing the value of our midstream assets in the Canada Montney, the Eagle Ford shale and in the Gulf of Mexico. “And that’s why this sale of a midstream would add return on capital employed,” he said.

Murphy Oil Mulls Acquisitions

Murphy Oil Corporation (NYSE:MUR) is seeking acquisitions. Roger Jenkins, President and Chief Executive Officer of Murphy Oil Corporation, said on being asked about offshore Gulf of Mexico and onshore acquisitions, “That would be fair. Probably not North of Oklahoma, and Gulf of Mexico is still a place. Our unique strategy of offshore and onshore allows us to look at both. We have looked at a lot of opportunities here, and we look at three or four all the time in both offshore and onshore all the time here. So we have a big team working on this. We are very interested in it. We monitor it very closely."
