KMI Eyes $0.8B for Expansion Projections, JV Contributions
OAKHURST, N.J. (DTN) --- Kinder Morgan, Inc. in its fourth quarter earnings
release today said it expects to invest $800 million in expansion projects and
contributions to joint ventures during 2021, while its 2021 budget contemplates
$2.1 billion in net income attributable to KMI.
Fourth quarter 2020 net income attributable to KMI was $607 million, down
from net income of $610 million attributable to KMI in the fourth quarter 2019
as financial contributions from all of its business segments decline on lower
energy demand due to the pandemic, lower commodity prices and the December 2018
sale of Kinder Morgan Canada Limited and the U.S. Cochin Pipeline.
"Despite the pandemic's continued drag on the economy and energy demand, our
company weathered the fourth quarter well, producing substantial earnings as
expected and robust coverage in this quarter's dividend," said KMI Executive
Chairman Richard D. Kinder.
