    Overall, Crestwood expects to invest $275 million to $325 million into expansion projects this year, slightly above its initial forecast to spend between $250 million and $300 million on capital projects. One driver of the increased budget is that oil and gas producer Enerplus (NYSE:ERF) awarded the company a contract to expand its water system in the Bakken. Crestwood expects to invest $60 million over the next two years on this project, which will help support Enerplus’ volume growth in the region. Meanwhile, the company is in advanced discussions with customers to provide a range of midstream services in the Delaware Basin, which could include building a new natural gas processing plant in the region.

    Crestwood had talked about potentially increasing its distribution this year but decided to hold it flat for 2019. That will allow it to retain more cash to finance some additional expansion projects so that it doesn’t negatively affect its financial profile. One of those projects is a $60 million investment to expand its Arrow water gathering system in the Bakken to support the growth of Enerplus (NYSE:ERF). Crestwood couldn’t pass up this opportunity since the long-term agreement with Enerplus implies an investment multiple of 4, which is higher than its average project.

Hot Energy Stocks For 2019

The world’s thirst for oil may finally be quenched.

Global demand for crude is likely to “plateau” during the late 2030s, mostly because of the rise of electric cars and trucks, BP predicted Tuesday in its annual outlook.

BP thinks 320 million electric vehicles will be on the road by 2040, compared with about 2 million in 2016. The company thinks electrics will hit a tipping point and really take off after 2035.

The prediction is more evidence of a dramatic shift in appetite for oil. And talk of peak oil demand — from one of the world’s largest oil producers, no less — shows how the thinking in the energy market has been upended.

A decade ago, people were worried about the opposite problem — a peak in how much oil could be pumped out of the ground. Those fears briefly sent prices skyrocketing as high as $147 a barrel.

Yet the world is now awash in oil. Excess supply, driven largely by the U.S. shale revolution, forced OPEC and Russia to dial back production over the past year.

    Friday was a relatively quiet day on Wall Street, with a split among the most widely followed market benchmarks that sent some up and others down. Slight downticks in oil prices and bond yields marked minor reversals from upward trends earlier in the week, but investors are still watching both energy and bonds closely to see what long-term impact they might have on the stock market.

Hot Energy Stocks For 2019: Anadarko Petroleum Corporation(APC)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Western Gas Partners, like Shell Midstream, is also an MLP with an oil-producing parent, in this case Anadarko Petroleum (NYSE:APC). That relationship has enabled Western Gas Partners to steadily grow cash flow and its distribution, initially via dropdown acquisitions and more recently from organic expansion projects. Those dual fuels enabled the MLP to increase its payout for 36 consecutive quarters.

    Anadarko Petroleum (NYSE:APC) also highlighted the PRB by announcing that it locked up more drillable land in the region during the second quarter, spending another $100 million to boost its position up to 300,000 acres. While Anadarko is still early in its evaluation process, the company noted that newly drilled wells delivered excellent results.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    With the mixed signals coming out of OPEC, oil prices could be quite volatile until the organization makes it clear what it intends to do. That could have an effect on financially weaker oil companies that desperately need higher oil prices to provide them with extra cash to firm up their financial foundations. Stronger producers, on the other hand, should continue to do well no matter what OPEC decides since they built their businesses to thrive at much lower oil prices. Three that stand out are ConocoPhillips (NYSE:COP), Anadarko Petroleum (NYSE:APC), and EOG Resources (NYSE:EOG).

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    In addition to the visible growth from these organic expansion projects, Western Gas Partners could accelerate its growth rate by acquiring additional assets from its parent Anadarko Petroleum (NYSE:APC). The two companies have worked together on a series of needle-moving deals over the years and have the potential to continue doing so since Anadarko Petroleum still owns several midstream assets. Currently, these assets generate more than $300 million in EBITDA, so they’re a needle-moving growth opportunity for Western Gas considering that it’s on pace to produce $1.2 billion in EBITDA this year. On top of that, Anadarko is investing $550 million to expand its midstream business, which would mean additional assets that it could eventually drop down to its MLP.

    While pipeline capacity constraints have hurt producers focused on the Permian, it has been a boon for midstream companies in the region, which have been able to quickly sign up shippers for proposed expansion projects. Private equity-backed EPIC Midstream was able to get major Permian producers Apache (NYSE:APA) and Noble Energy (NYSE:NBL) to sign up for a combined 175,000 barrels per day (BPD) on the company’s proposed EPIC Crude Oil Pipeline. EPIC currently plans to build a 440,000 BPD pipeline to ship crude out of the Permian. However, it could expand the line up to 675,00 BPD if there’s enough shipper demand. One of the reasons Noble was quick to sign on is that this line “provides long-term flow assurance for our rapidly growing Delaware Basin oil volumes,” according to the company. Apache, meanwhile, stated that this line “enhances our long-term operational flexibility and market optionality.” EPIC hopes to start construction on the pipeline later this year, which would put it in service by the second half of 2019. It’s one of the first projects by the private equity-backed start-up but likely won’t be its last given the infrastructure needs in the region.

    Both Apache (NYSE:APA) and Noble Energy (NYSE:NBL) have signed on to the private-equity-backed EPIC Pipeline, which will move 590,000 barrels of crude per day to the Texas coast when it starts operations in the second half of next year.

    Friday was a relatively quiet day on Wall Street, with a split among the most widely followed market benchmarks that sent some up and others down. Slight downticks in oil prices and bond yields marked minor reversals from upward trends earlier in the week, but investors are still watching both energy and bonds closely to see what long-term impact they might have on the stock market. Most attention centered on individual companies, some of which reported good news that sent their shares higher. Dell Technologies (NYSE:DVMT), Nektar Therapeutics (NASDAQ:NKTR), and Westport Fuel Systems (NASDAQ:WPRT) were among the best performers on the day. Here’s why they did so well.

    Tyler, Jason, and I (Matt here) were recently discussing why natural gas stocks have taken it on the chin over the past year. While some have been the victim of their own mistakes, shares of many of the country’s largest gas-focused producers have lost value even though oil prices have been on the upswing. For example, the country’s leading gas producer, EQT Corp. (NYSE:EQT), has seen its stock tumble more than 20%, while other large gas-focused companies such as Antero Resources (NYSE:AR), Cabot Oil & Gas (NYSE:COG), and Southwestern Energy have declined between 5% and 15% over the past 12 months. Those sell-offs caught our attention. Here’s what we think is weighing down gas stocks these days.
