Elliott Management has taken a $1 billion stake in Phillips 66 and plans to seek as many as two board seats, sources told CNBC’s David Faber.

Phillips 66 stock rose 4.6% in early trading on Wednesday. The crude refining company has a market cap of about $52 billion.

Elliott’s push for the board seats comes as Phillips has underperformed its competitors Marathon Petroleum and Valero with a higher operating expense per barrel.

The activist investor does not appear interested in going after Phillips new CEO Mark Lashier.
