There is so much talk in the news about TransCanada's Keystone XL pipeline that many investors overlook the fact that the company's biggest problem is actually a natural gas pipeline. But not for long. In this video, Motley Fool contributor Aimee Duffy takes a look at how bad things are for TransCanada, and what the company plans to do to bring success back to its most important asset.

The surge in oil and natural gas production from the fracking movement is creating massive bottlenecks in takeaway capacity. However, this problem for producers creates an immensely profitable opportunity for midstream companies. Energy Transfer Partners is a company that helps alleviate the glut in supply with its 23,500 miles of transformational pipelines. To see if ETP and its sizable dividend payment could be a good fit for your portfolio, you're invited to check out The Motley Fool's premium research report on the company. Simply click here now for a thorough expert analysis of this midstream company.
