With the coming North American oil boom ramping up, more and more companies are finding themselves without the midstream capabilities to transport all the oil they are producing. So, any transport company that can position itself for high volume now will have the deck stacked in its favor. Enbridge (NYS: ENB) is preparing for just that. In this video, Motley Fool energy analyst Joel South tells us about two recent expansion plans for this midstream company. One is a pipeline connecting Edmonton, Alberta, into a network that can deliver crude oil to the Great Lakes region, in addition to running through TransCanada's (NYS: TRP) Keystone XL pipeline. Another is a railroad designed to bring oil from the Bakken Shale east to Philadelphia.
Enbridge is not the only company taking advantage of the surge in oil and natural gas production from hydraulic fracturing and horizontal drilling. These massive bottlenecks create an excellent opportunity for all types of midstream companies. Energy Transfer Partners helps alleviate the gluts in supply with 23,500 miles of transformational pipelines.
