In this video, Motley Fool Energy analyst Taylor Muckerman talks about Energy Transfer Partners (NYSE: ETP ) , whose somewhat stagnant growth over the past few years may be changing. Several growth projects announced by the company in 2010, involving pipelines in major gas-rich areas of Texas, such as the Eagle Ford and Red River, are well ahead of schedule. Muckerman tells us what this could mean as the company goes into the next year for projected revenues, and what those numbers mean for shareholders.
