Kinder Morgan Finds Partner for LNG Export

Kinder Morgan  (NYSE: KMI  ) moved one step closer to exporting LNG out if its Elba terminal in Savannah, Ga., after announcing its master limited partner El Paso Pipeline Partners  (NYSE: EPB  ) joint venture with a subsidiary of Royal Dutch Shell  (NYSE: RDS-B  ) . While the joint venture announcement moves Kinder Morgan one step closer to taking advantage of the cheap natural gas supply in North America, the project is far from certain. Approval from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) is still needed and while the debate over what should be done with the cheap natural gas in the U.S. rages on, it could be years before this country grants its blessing on the project. 

It's easy to forget the necessity of midstream operators that seamlessly transport oil and gas throughout the United States. Kinder Morgan is one of these operators, and one that investors should commit to memory due to its sheer size -- it's the fourth-largest energy company in the U.S. -- not to mention its enormous potential for profits. In The Motley Fool's new premium research report on Kinder Morgan, our top energy analyst breaks down the company's growing opportunity, as well as the risks to watch out for, in order to uncover whether it's a buy or a sell.
