Top Gold Stocks To Own Right Now: Targa Resources, Inc.(TRGP)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Kinder Morgan has already started to capture some of this growth. It’s working with two of the largest natural gas gathering and processing companies in the region –DCP Midstream (NYSE:DCP) and Targa Resources(NYSE:TRGP) — on the Gulf Coast Express pipeline. That $1.7 billion pipeline will have the capacity to move 1.92 BCF/D of natural gas to market centers along the Gulf when it comes online next October. It’s the first of what could be many expansion projects for the company in the region over the next several years.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    The growth opportunities could be significant. Large-scale midstream companies Targa Resources (NYSE:TRGP) and Plains All American Pipelines (NYSE:PAA) currently have billions of dollars of Permian growth projects under way that will significantly increase their cash flow in the coming years. Targa Resources recently secured contracts supporting $500 million of gas gathering and processing investments in the region, which boosted its total backlog of Permian projects to $2.4 billion, or 75% of its total planned spending over the next two years. Those expansions position it to nearly double its earnings by 2021. Plains All American Pipelines, meanwhile, is investing more than 80% of its roughly $2 billion capital budget on the Permian over the next two years, and it could end up spending even more money to meet the demand for oil gathering capacity. Those expansions help position it to grow cash flow at a double-digit annual pace over the next two years. Given Oasis Midstream’s much smaller size, it has the potential to capture needle-moving growth by expanding into the Permian.
