What's in the Offing for Energy Transfer (ET) in Q3 Earnings?
Energy Transfer LP (ET - Free Report) is scheduled to release third-quarter 2022 results on Nov 1, after market close. In the last reported quarter, the oil and gas midstream firm delivered a positive surprise of 34.5%.
Let’s discuss the factors that are likely to get reflected in the upcoming quarterly results.
Factors to Note
Energy Transfer commissioned the Permian Bridge Project and Ted Collins Link, which has ensured additional volumes in the pipelines, contributing to earnings in the third quarter.
Energy Transfer’s pipelines are spread across every major production basin and its investments in high-quality growth projects are yielding results. Fee-based contracts of the firm are also likely to have boosted third-quarter earnings.
The Zacks Consensus Estimate for third-quarter earnings and revenues is pegged at 30 cents per unit and $27.57 billion, respectively. The revenue estimate indicates an increase of 50% from the year-ago reported figure, while the earnings per unit estimate suggests 65.4% growth from the year-ago reported figure.
