Master limited partnerships, which provide the tax benefits of a limited partnership with the liquidity of publicly traded securities, are becoming more popular among accredited investors. MLPs have been a favorite investment of ultra-affluent members of Tiger 21, the peer-to-peer investment group, according to a statement released Tuesday by the organization.

In the past few weeks, weve focused on some of the challenges facing Canadas LNG export projects. Meanwhile, progress continues toward getting landlocked Canadian crude to fast-growing Asian markets. This week, the countrys federal government finally approved Enbridge Incs (TSX: ENB, NYSE: ENB) CAD7.9 billion Northern Gateway project. The companys nearly 1,200 kilometer pipeline will have the capacity to move as much as 525,000 barrels of oil per day from the resource-rich province of Alberta to a deepwater port on Canadas west coast.
