Why TEGP Should Not Have Strong Correlation With Crude Oil

Tallgrass Energy GP

Tallgrass Energy GP (TEGP), Tallgrass Energy Partners’ (TEP) general partner, has the tenth-highest correlation with crude oil among MLPs. On October 6, 2017, TEGP’s one-year correlation with crude oil was 0.436, while TEP’s was 0.398. TEP is in the 21st spot. TEGP’s and TEP’s correlation with crude oil may not be justified, considering their low commodity price exposure. Of TEP’s 2016 adjusted EBITDA (earnings before interest, tax, depreciation, and amortization), 97% was from take-or-pay contracts, 2% was volumetric based, and 1% was linked to commodity prices. TEP’s slight commodity price exposure is due to its involvement in the natural gas processing business.
