Kinder Morgan is a Houston-based pipeline company.

Iraq's output hit a record high in December, with some oil fields producing as much as 4.13 million barrels a day, Reuters reports.

In light of the continued global supply glut, HSBC and UniCredit today became the latest of several banks and brokerages to slash their oil price forecasts for 2016, Reuters adds.
