Energy Transfer LP ET is scheduled to release second-quarter 2022 results on Aug 3, after market close. In the last reported quarter, the oil and gas midstream firm delivered a surprise of 19.3%.
Let’s discuss the factors that are likely to get reflected in the upcoming quarterly results.
Factors to Note
Energy Transfer’s pipelines are spread across every major production basin and its investments in high-quality growth projects are yielding results. The commissioning of the Permian Bridge Project and Ted Collins Link has ensured additional volumes in the pipelines, which are likely to have boosted earnings in the quarter.
Fee-based contracts of the firm are also likely to have boosted second-quarter earnings. The reductions of $6.3-billion outstanding debt in 2021 and $290 million in first-quarter 2022 are likely to have reduced its capital servicing costs in the second quarter and boosted earnings.
The Zacks Consensus Estimate for second-quarter earnings and revenues is pegged at 29 cents per unit and $21.88 billion, respectively. The revenue estimate indicates an increase of 44.9% from the year-ago reported figure, while the earnings per unit estimate suggests 45% growth from the year-ago reported figure.
