The panel addressed the pros and cons of the REIT structure vs. the MLP structure and how infrastructure assets are owned, operated and leased within those two structures. Finally, the panelists discussed the recent FERC announcement reversing its policy of allowing MLPs to recover an income tax allowance in cost-of-service rates and the extent to which a REIT might make sense as an alternative to an MLP in light of that announcement.

Thank you to our guest speaker, Becky Sandring, Senior Vice President, Treasurer and Secretary at CorEnergy Infrastructure Trust, Inc. for joining us for this discussion.
