What Does the Seaway Pipeline Mean for Oil Prices?


The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which energy editor/analyst Joel South and technology editor/analyst Brenton Flynn discuss topics around the investing world.

In today's edition, Joel talks about the Seaway Pipeline reversal set for action on Thursday.

Watch the video to hear our analysis on the pipeline reversal and what it means for joint owners Enbridge and Enterprise Products Partners, as well as one other refiner that's positioned to succeed in the current environment.
