From entire of investments alternatives most of all I prefer midstream Oil and Gas infrastructure because it will never lose its meaning to be a crucial point in energy delivery to the consumer. This is the simplest business model, that associated with the most sophisticated ever exist engineering construction and safety measures. But stable cash flow and high level of certainty worth of it. Looks like it only one available investment opportunity that doesn’t have the usual live cycle, don’t need to struggle with competitors and to prove to a customer about product quality standards. It is a pure investment in tangible assets that have intrinsic value in biggest ever exist value chain and connect extraction of Oil and Gas with Refineries and Gas processing plants that trade yearly by hundreds of billions of dollars at energy commodities market

It can be based on the total amount of stored database, or cell phones spreading for the last 20 years. It can be gauged by the number of hours that ordinary individuals spending on the internet or gaming. But what about shareholder’s wealth creation, what does this revolution brings and is it really so impressive? Is it only one possible way to generate so huge rate of return for the past 20 years or other industries also was revolutionized? Yes, it is and the fact shows that real Boom just passed in OilGas, and in its more specific area, such as Oil and Gas Pipeline. The IT revolution is Hype, that was widely announced in the media and millennials that use it in everyday lives the gadgets, internet, and social networks got it to the top of revolutionized marketing, logistics, communication, etc. All these events seriously modified retail business, communication services, and marketing till the ground and changes keep going to move forward.
