Kinder Morgan meets expectations on Q3 earnings but misses on revenues

Kinder Morgan Inc. (KMI) posted third-quarter 2018 earnings that came in line with expectations but missed the mark on revenues. Total revenues increased to $3.52 billion during the quarter from $3.28 billion in the same period last year.

Net income available to common shareholders improved to $693 million or $0.31 per share versus $334 million or $0.15 per share in the prior-year period, helped by a one-time gain on the sale of the Trans Mountain pipeline system. Adjusted EPS totaled $0.21 in the quarter.
