The U.S. oil and gas market offers something that virtually no other market in the world does—easy entry for non-traditional investors, who are helping to bolster the capital available for much-needed infrastructure buildout.

The U.S. oil and gas market is one of few in the world, if not the only one, that features all of the following: a growing oil and gas sector, relative ease of market entry for players of all sizes, strong institutions and a stable political environment (the last one is arguable). That mix of characteristics has made the U.S. the target of a growing class of non-traditional oil and gas players, such as Asian electricity providers and small-scale, pure-play financial investors.
