It's a well-known fact that you can't have the midstream energy sector -- our gatherers, pipelines, and processors -- without the upstream sector, or our exploration and production companies. As America's energy production has shifted away from traditional areas, midstream companies are scrambling to lay down infrastructure to bring these new energy sources to market.
In this video, Fool.com contributor Aimee Duffy talks to Tyler Crowe about which midstream master limited partnerships are active in some well-known plays like the Permian Basin, and in some lesser known plays like the Niobrara Shale and the Mississippi Lime. Aimee explains how MLPs like Plains All American (NYSE: PAA ) , Magellan Midstream Partners (NYSE: MMP ) , Access Midstream Partners (NYSE: ACMP ) , Summit Midstream Partners (NYSE: SMLP ) , and Tallgrass Energy Partners (NYSE: TEP ) all play a role in our new American energy narrative.
