How does Kinder Morgan make money?


Kinder Morgan is focused on cash flow and makes its money typically by charging fees for use of the capacity of its pipelines, terminals and other assets.  These assets are managed under one publicly traded C-Corp (KMI). ;  On November 26, 2014 Kinder Morgan Inc. (NYSE: KMI) finalized the acquisition of  all of the outstanding units it did not already own of Kinder Morgan Energy Partners, L.P. (KMP) which was a diversified midstream energy MLP owning principally fee-based pipeline and terminal assets that transport and or store natural gas, refined products (such as gasoline, jet fuel and diesel), bulk products (such as coal, petcoke and steel), crude oil and carbon dioxide, as well as other products.  Under this transaction Kinder Morgan Inc. (KMI) also purchased all of the outstanding units it did not already own of El Paso Pipeline Partners, L.P. (EPB) which was a pure-play natural gas pipeline MLP focused on fee-based interstate natural gas transportation and liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminals.

On May 30, 2017, Kinder Morgan announced the IPO of Kinder Morgan Canada Limited, Kinder Morgan’s Canadian business that owns an interest in or operates an integrated network of pipeline systems and terminal facilities in Canada.  Kinder Morgan Canada Limited trades on the Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX) under ticker symbol “KML”.
