    Enbridge Energy Partners (EEP +1.3%) says it may be forced to shut down an 80K bbl/day oil-loading rail terminal in North Dakota unless the amount of potentially deadly hydrogen sulfide in crude oil delivered to the facility can be reduced. EEP is seeking to limit the amount of harmful gas in the delivered crude to 5 ppm, but Plains All American (PAA) counters that other pipeline companies have a threshold of 10 ppm.

    Plains All American Pipeline (PAA +0.4%) is downgraded to Neutral from Outperform at Credit Suisse on valuation after posting Q1 results that "crushed" estimates. The firm raises its outlook to a three-year CAGR of 11% as PAA builds out its fee-based business. PAA took advantage of favorable spreads to record $3.95/bbl margins in its S&L segment but is guiding to $1.19/bbl margins for Q2 and $1.15 for H2.

    Barclays sees the growth in crude oil rail transport as a “slight positive” for MLPs, as it provides terminal investment opportunities and potential synergies partially offset by increasing competition. The financial impact of rail on MLPs is still relatively modest, the firm says, as pipelines remain the dominant mode of U.S. crude transportation due to cost and safety advantages relative to rail, barge and truck.

    The shale revolution is here to stay and will have a meaningful impact on the midstream industry, and MLPs are by far the best way to capitalize, fund manager Kevin McCarthy says. His favorites: Plains All American (PAA) for its management team, and Enterprise Products Partners (EPD) for its diverse assets. But beware of non-traditional MLPs in areas such as retail gas stations, coking, and wholesale supply.
