The midstream business currently handles over 1/2 of a Bcf/day and the best part is that it will continue to grow. As it does it will move toward fix fee contracts that will provide stable cash flow and thus de-risking Eagle Rock's portfolio. Furthermore, recent deals struck with proven producers like Apache create a solid platform. The Apache deal alone could potentially add 1,000 wells which means many years of connecting wells and extending its midstream footprint. The pipeline business unit could also upsize existing processing plants and double down on its fixed fee structure while it continues to beef up its midstream asset base.
If you want market-thumping returns, you need to put together the best portfolio you can. Of course, despite a strong four-star rating, Eagle Rock may not be your top choice.
