Midstream Storage and Transportation

As part of our growth strategy at Energy Distribution Partners, we are diversifying into the midstream energy storage and transportation business. While 'midstream' can include a broad array of energy assets, our focus is on storage assets and pipelines.

Our initial strategy is to acquire and develop assets that are smaller than those sought by major industry participants, such as multibillion-dollar MLPs. We plan to seek high-quality, smaller midstream assets.

Growth of the midstream sector

Expanding U.S. production of oil, gas and natural gas liquids (NGLs) will require an estimated $641 billion in capital expenditures from 2014 to 2035, both to replace aging infrastructure and to support the new development of shale plays, according to a report by the Interstate Natural Gas Association of America (INGAA) Foundation. The dramatic growth of the midstream energy sector creates an ample opportunity set for EDP's diversification plans.

A disciplined approach

We are taking a thoughtful and disciplined approach to diversifying into the midstream sector. We are focused on acquiring high-quality, long-term, fee-based assets that are good values. We anticipate those investments will provide stable cash flows and greatly expand the long-term growth potential of the company.
