Keystone Pipeline Gets Step Closer to Approval – Which Is Good News for These Investors

Keystone XL pipeline supporters - who have been waiting years for this project to be completed - just received good news from the U.S. Department of State.

The Keystone pipeline is 1,179 miles long and would connect heavy crude oil from bitumen deposits in Canada to the southeastern refining network of the United States. While the southern portion has been built, the northern section requires approval given its cross-border passage.

It's Time to Climb Aboard the Oil-by-Rail Boom

Rail transit is about to make you some big oil.

That's why I'll be headed to Dallas in late August and Calgary mid-September for extensive meetings with all of the key players.

I can promise you, that in a hurry this is going to get a lot bigger.

As it happens, I'll be providing all of the details for average investors to profit from this monumental change.

Let me explain to you how all of this has suddenly come about...

This Pipeline Will Make Investors More than Keystone Ever Could

Look for the Obama administration to delay its Keystone Pipeline decision until after the 2014 election as it's preoccupied by ongoing scandals and the debate about fracking in the United States.

With House and Senate Democrats now vulnerable over these scandals and Obamacare costs, the President is expected to appease his base and continue to double down on alternative energy projects at the Department of Energy.

Will Environmentalists Kill the Keystone XL Pipeline?

For more than four years, the controversial Keystone XL pipeline has been at the center of a heated battle between opponents and supporters.

Those who favor the 1,700-mile extension of the pipeline see it as a step toward North American energy independence and a source of tens of thousands of jobs.

Will John Kerry Kill the Keystone XL Pipeline?

When new U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry met Friday with Canadian Foreign Minister John Baird in Washington, the talk turned to the fate of the controversial Keystone XL pipeline.

Kerry said the controversial $7 billion Keystone XL pipeline project would undergo a "fair and transparent review," adding he expects to make a decision "near-term" on whether to move forward with it. The State Department has final say over the pipeline because it traverses international borders.

A 795,000 Mile Long Pipeline to Big Energy Profits

At the request of a major player in oil and gas pipelines, I was given a major task.

I had to estimate how much of the U.S gas and oil infrastructure needs to be replaced by 2025.

Then I needed to estimate the extent of additional connectors that would be needed to handle new domestic hydrocarbon developments.

And you thought Super Bowl Sunday was a lot of pressure.

Keystone Oil Pipeline Decision Key to Obama's Energy Policy

One of the major policy decisions facing U.S. President Barack Obama is whether or not to approve the Keystone oil pipeline across the Canadian border into the United States.

If approved, the pipeline - to be built by TransCanada (NYSE: TRP) - would transport about 1.3 million barrels of oil a day from Canada's oil sands to refineries along the Gulf coast.

The Keystone oil pipeline, if approved, would benefit U.S. energy security. Not to mention TransCanada and players in the Canadian oil sands industry such as Suncor Energy (NYSE: SU).

This decision is one investors in the energy sector need to pay attention to as it will set the tone for energy policy in President Obama's second term.

Why U.S. Natural Gas Companies Are Looking Forward to 2014

Natural gas companies in the United States hope the worst is behind them.

In 2012, natural gas prices plummeted to a two-decade low at below $2 per million BTU. This meant U.S. natural gas lost 87% of its value over a six-and-a-half year period. The low price was thanks to a glut of gas due to newer drilling technologies such as fracking.

Natural Gas Companies Enjoy Price Climb Ahead of Earnings

There's not much to love about an ultra-hot U.S. summer - unless you're investing in natural gas companies.

The record-breaking temps (the U.S. is on pace for its hottest year ever) have made the country crank the AC, lifting natural gas prices and stocks.

Congress Wastes Time on Buffett Rule, Keystone Pipeline to Beef Up Attack Ads

They are at it again...

With a cynical eye cast toward the November election, members of Congress forced votes on the "Buffett Rule" and the Keystone pipeline knowing both would ultimately fail.

The real purpose for voting on the Buffett Rule and the Keystone pipeline was to embarrass the opposition and produce material for campaign attack ads.

The Keystone Pipeline Fallout: Canada Makes Over a Billion New Friends

"If you do not change direction, you may end up where you are heading." Lao Tzu

You can forget about energy independence for now.

Without Canadian oil it is nothing but the latest American pipe dream.

In the wake of the Keystone Pipeline decision, Canada has decided to play ball with China instead.

The Keystone Delay Won't Stop These Canadian Oil Sands Stocks

I'm not a knee-jerk hater of the Obama administration.

But the President's decision to reject the Keystone pipeline was one of his worst.

The Ultimate Fate of the Keystone Pipeline

The Obama Administration last week decided not to approve the Keystone XL pipeline.

This has introduced another political firestorm into an already uncertain market.

If there is one subject that is likely to stimulate more angst over economic recovery prospects, it is the availability of energy.

Approval of Keystone Pipeline Will Pump Profits Out of Canadian Oil Sands

With U.S. President Barack Obama expected to approve the long-delayed Keystone XL oil pipeline late this year or early in 2012, several companies already producing in the Canadian oil sand fields stand to benefit.

The 1,700-mile pipeline, which could be finished as soon as mid-2013, will carry 700,000 barrels of crude per day from the Canadian oil sands in Alberta to refineries in Port Arthur, TX.

The Top Five Natural Gas Companies to Watch

NEW YORK - I've briefed Wall Street before. This time, however, the 57th floor conference room is packed. Some heavy hitters invited me to explain why natural gas is the upcoming energy play.

By the size of the crowd, it seems the word is getting around.
