Energy investors from Goldman, Swank still bullish on select pipeline MLPs

|By:, SA News Editor

Two energy investors presenting at Capital Link's MLP stress the desirability of crude oil and natural gas liquids over natural gas, and the importance of geographic diversity in suggesting six MLPs to buy now.

Kyri Loupis, head of energy and infrastructure at Goldman Sachs, likes Oiltanking Partners (OILT), Lehigh Gas Partners (LGP) and EQT Midstream Partners (EQM) - smaller MLPs with strong growth prospects, healthy balance sheets and small distribution obligations to general partners.

Dan Spears, a portfolio manager at Swank Capital, prefers larger pipeline players Access Midstream Partners (ACMP), Energy Transfer Equity (ETE) and NGL Energy Partners (NGL).
