Energy Transfer LP Oil & Gas | Dallas, TX

Energy Transfer is a Texas-based company that began in 1995 as a small intrastate natural gas pipeline operator and is now one of the largest and most diversified investment grade master limited partnerships in the United States.

Through several recent transformative transactions, we have expanded our scope of services and increased our focus on the transportation of heavier hydrocarbons. While we remain committed to the prolific natural gas industry, we enhanced our diversified portfolio of assets by making a strategic entrance into the NGL business through the acquisition of Louis Dreyfus’ NGL storage, fractionation and transportation operations in 2011. In 2012, we acquired Southern Union Company, a leading diversified natural gas company, which expanded our national footprint and added more than 20,000 miles of gathering and transportation pipelines to our portfolio. More recently, we made a strong entrance into the crude oil and refined products business by acquiring Sunoco, Inc., including its interest in Sunoco Logistics Partners L.P. (SXL). These acquisitions, together with our already robust asset base, have enabled Energy Transfer to become a premier provider of services to producers and consumers of natural gas, NGLs, crude oil, and refined products. To improve operating efficiencies within the Energy Transfer family, in October 2012 we formed ETP Holdco Corporation, which is owned 60% by ETE and 40% by ETP and controlled through a majority board membership by ETP.
