The meeting concluded with a financial review and Q&A. Overall the impression is one of numerous projects to grow and add to their energy infrastructure assets. Many seemingly attractive opportunities are available. The shadow of Kevin Kaiser, the HedgeEye analyst who criticized their accounting last year, was present even though Kaiser himself did not ask any questions (he was actively tweeting though). The maintenance capex figure for Kinder Morgan Partners (KMP) received some scrutiny, up as it was from $327MM last year to $438MM this year. The series of presentations also offered a lot of detail, and although today’s market vote was a negative (KMI is -4%) we are comfortable with our investment. We are long KMI, but also short a substantially smaller amount of KMP as a hedge in one particular strategy.
