In this video, Motley Fool Energy analyst Taylor Muckerman talks about Energy Transfer Partners (NYS: ETP) , whose somewhat stagnant growth over the past few years may be changing. Several growth projects announced by the company in 2010, involving pipelines in major gas-rich areas of Texas, such as the Eagle Ford and Red River, are well ahead of schedule. Muckerman tells us what this could mean as the company goes into the next year for projected revenues, and what those numbers mean for shareholders.

The surge in oil and natural gas production from hydraulic fracturing and horizontal drilling is creating massive bottlenecks in takeaway capacity. However, this problem for producers creates a massive and immensely profitable opportunity for midstream companies. Energy Transfer Partners helps alleviate the gluts in supply with 23,500 miles of transformational pipelines, and as new pipeline infrastructure is completed, the company's ability to operate in this capacity only gets stronger. To see if ETP and its industry-leading yield will be a fit for you, click on this detailed premium report, which will supply you with a thorough analysis of this attractive midstream.
