(NYSE: BIP; TSX: BIP.UN) (“Brookfield Infrastructure”). As a result of this transaction, ArcLight’s ownership in NGPL increased to 37.5% while Brookfield Infrastructure retains a 25% interest. Kinder Morgan, Inc. (NYSE: KMI) continues to operate the pipeline and holds a 37.5% interest in NGPL.
“Our investment in NGPL continues to be highly representative of ArcLight’s thesis in strategic natural gas infrastructure. NGPL provides critical energy reliability and security services to utilities, enables increasing electrification in the U.S. and supports the generational shift in supply-demand fundamentals driven by LNG export growth. In addition, we believe NGPL serves as a critical enabler to the future development of energy transition infrastructure. We are excited to further invest in our longstanding partnership with Kinder Morgan, a highly sophisticated operator with industry leading ESG credentials,” said Lucius Taylor, Partner at ArcLight.
