Top 3 U.S. Pipeline Stocks to add to your portfolio in 2022 by The Uptrend Center


London, UK — The Energy Information Administration (EIA) of the U.S. has recently said that the annual U.S. Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) exports will see a surge of 2.4 Bcf/d in 2022 and 0.5Bcf/d in the next year. The EIA has a belief that the USA will even surpass the top exporters Qatar and Australia this year to become the world’s leading exporter of LNG in 2022. The average billion cubic feet per day (Bcfd/d) exports of natural gas have reached 12.2 figures this year in the United States due to continuous growth in the LNG exports by the country.

It has been only 5 years since the United States became a net exporter of natural gas on an annual basis, and now its exports through the pipeline as well as LNG have seen massive growth. Analysts believe that the U.S. natural gas exports through the pipeline to Canada and Mexico are set to increase by 0.3 Bcf/d this year and 0.4 Bcf/d in 2023. According to David Frenkel, a stocks analyst from The Uptrend Center, the pipeline exports from the U.S. will see further growth this year amid the increased tensions between Ukraine & Russia, making pipeline stocks more attractive to investors. The recent Russian-Ukraine war has forced European countries to turn to the United States for LNG supplies. Currently, the USA ranks second in the world in natural gas exports, following Russia.

There are about 2.6 million miles of pipelines in the United States delivering trillions of cubic feet of LNG to homes, businesses, power plants, and industries. In addition, billions of gallons of liquid fuels are also provided to refueling stations, refineries and terminals. In order to keep supplying fuel to the economy, pipelines play an essential role.

Pipeline stocks refer to the shares of the companies owning oil and gas pipelines. These companies provide oil and gas transportation services from wells to refineries and markets. Utility companies also use pipelines to transport LNG to homes and their customers. The companies operate and own the pipelines and other energy-related infrastructure. Usually, they receive a fixed fee for letting other energy-related companies make use of the capacity of their pipeline systems. The best part of the pipeline stocks is that the companies behind them usually distribute a big portion of their incomes to the investors, thus making these stocks more appealing to the traders. Another exciting thing about the pipeline industry is that it belongs to the energy sector, which is currently experiencing a boom. The prices of energy products, including electricity, crude oil, and LNG, are rising extensively amid increased geopolitical tensions and environmental concerns. The rising prices of LNG and increased demand from Europe and Mexico are going to play an essential role in driving the prices of pipeline stocks higher this year. So, if you want to grab the opportunity of investing in these stocks, we have mentioned the following top-performing U.S. Pipeline stocks for 2022!
