All shelf filings use the same general use language. Start reading and stop bashing things that EVERY company that has issued either debt or equity in the last 20 years has been required to do. Can you find something real to complain about with ETP? Are you suggesting ETP should not be building new facilities? Should the not have acquired the SXL interest? Citrus? How do you think they pay for those things? Maybe debt and equity?
I disagree--gas prices are low, but the price ETP charges to TRANSPORT that gas through their pipelines is about the same! And most folks use nat.gas to heat their homes and cook with, and cooler weather is coming!
