Seeking Alpha: Enbridge Energy Partners Working A Tricky Balance

A lot is going on these days in the energy MLP sector, as companies try to balance their needs for cash distribution growth to shareholders/unitholders, keep a sustainable balance sheet, and fund the capital spending needed to exploit what could well be a once-in-a-career buildout of new infrastructure to handle North America's growing energy output.
