The size and scale of America's energy renaissance offers income investors a truly epic opportunity to earn high and growing yields on top of strong capital gains. Consider these facts:
- Estimates predict a requirement of $641 billion in energy investments by 2030.
- $313 billion of this will be in natural gas midstream infrastructure (storage, processing, and transport pipelines).
- Natural gas liquids, or NGL, midstream infrastructure will require $56 billion in investments.
- To profit from cheap ethane and propane, the petrochemical industry is planning on building or upgrading 148 facilities at a cost of $125 billion.
