Kinder Morgan's stock jumps after sale of U.S. part of Cochin Pipeline for $1.6 billion

Shares of Kinder Morgan Inc. rallied 2.9% in premarket trading Wednesday, after the energy transportation and storage company announced a deal to sell the U.S. portion of the Cochin Pipeline for $1.55 billion to Pembina Pipeline Corp. . As part of the deal, Pembina has agreed to buy all of the outstanding common stock of Kinder Morgan Canada Ltd. , of which Kinder Morgan owns a 70% stake.

Based on Tuesday's closing price of the U.S.-listed Pembina stock, that would be worth about $923.8 million. The deals are expected to close late in the fourth quarter or in the first quarter of 2020. Kinder Morgan initially expects to use the proceeds to pay down debt. Kinder Morgan's stock has soared 31% year to date through Tuesday, while the SPDR Energy Select Sector ETF has edged up 0.8% and the S&P 500 has gained 16%.
