Energy-related master limited partnerships (MLP) have completed seven initial public offerings (IPO) thus far in 2014, bringing the universe of publicly traded partnerships to an all-time high.

Although some of these fledgling partnerships operate assets familiar to most investors, the class of 2014 also continues the expansion of this security class to several niche industries, including renewable energy, wastewater management and pipeline inspection.

Meanwhile, recent IPOs have included Foresight Energy Partners LP (NYSE: FELP), the first coal producer to debt as a publicly traded partnership since 2010, and Viper Energy Partners LP (NSDQ: VNOM), a spin-off of Diamondback Energy (NSDQ: FANG), which has reignited investors’ interest in mineral rights.
