HOUSTON--(Business Wire)--
Enterprise Products Partners L.P. ("Enterprise") (NYSE: EPD) today announced its
financial results for the three months and year ended December 31, 2012. For the
year ended 2012, Enterprise reported records for each of the following: net
income of $2.4 billion; earnings per unit of $2.71 on a fully diluted basis;
gross operating margin of $4.4 billion; and distributable cash flow of $4.1
billion, which included $1.2 billion of cash proceeds from sales of assets. 

"Enterprise had another record year in 2012," stated Michael A. Creel, president
and CEO of Enterprise. "We benefited from record volumes in our fee-based
businesses attributable to production growth, primarily in the Eagle Ford and
Haynesville shale plays, and from strong domestic and international demand for
NGLs, particularly from the U.S. petrochemical industry and exports. In 2012,
our integrated pipeline system transported a record 4.3 million barrels per day
of NGLs, crude oil, refined products and petrochemicals and a record 14.5
trillion Btus per day of natural gas; while our NGL fractionators averaged a
record 659,000 barrels per day and our processing plants handled a record 4.4
billion cubic feet per day of natural gas on a fee basis." 

"We generated $4.1 billion of distributable cash flow and increased our cash
distributions with respect to 2012 by 5.6 percent to $2.57 per unit. Enterprise
has increased its cash distribution rate for each of the last 34 consecutive
quarters, the longest period for any of the publicly traded energy partnerships,
and in excess of 5 percent for each of the last eight years. In 2012, we
retained approximately $1.9 billion of cash flow to reinvest in our growth
projects and reduce our need to issue additional equity. Excluding $1.2 billion
of proceeds from the sales of non-core assets, our distributable cash flow was
$2.9 billion, providing 1.3 times coverage of the distributions paid with
respect to 2012," said Creel. 

"In 2012, we successfully completed and began operations for major growth
projects totaling $2.9 billion of investment. Most of these projects were
completed on or under budget and on time or ahead of schedule. During the fourth
quarter of 2012, we completed $1.2 billion of large projects including our sixth
NGL fractionator at Mont Belvieu, Texas in October 2012 and the expansion of our
natural gas and NGL pipeline systems serving the Eagle Ford shale in South
Texas. Earlier this week, we began commissioning the third train at our natural
gas processing plant near Yoakum, Texas serving Eagle Ford shale producers. We
expect this train to begin commercial operations at the beginning of March.
These projects are contributing new sources of gross operating margin and
distributable cash flow, and we expect to see the full benefit of these assets
as volumes increase over the next few years," continued Creel. 

"Our commercial, engineering and operations teams are doing a great job
developing growth and expansion opportunities to meet the needs of our energy
producing and consuming customers. We have announced approximately $7.2 billion
of major capital projects under construction that are scheduled to begin
commercial operations from 2013 to 2015. Approximately $2.4 billion of these
projects are expected to begin operations and start generating cash flow in
2013. The revenues associated with these projects are predominately fee-based
and the larger projects have the additional assurance of demand revenues or
minimum volume commitments," stated Creel. 

"In 2013, we expect continuing volume and gross operating margin growth from our
fee-based natural gas processing activities, NGL pipelines and fractionators and
crude oil pipelines and storage facilities as these growth projects begin
operations. We also expect our natural gas processing margins will be lower in
2013 than 2012 due to lower ethane prices, and that our equity NGL production
will be lower as our natural gas processing business continues to transition to
a more fee-based business. We expect the growth in our fee-based businesses will
offset the potential decrease in gross operating margin from the commodity
portion of our natural gas processing business and, moreover, will support our
distribution growth in 2013," said Creel. 

"Over the past three years, we have simplified our partnership structure to
capture organizational and operational efficiencies while eliminating inherent
conflicts of interest. We also lowered our cost of capital by eliminating our
general partner`s incentive distribution rights. These actions improve the cash
accretion associated with our growth capital projects for the benefit of our
limited partners. We believe we are well capitalized and have good access to the
capital markets to fund our capital program. We want to thank our debt and
equity investors again for their continued support in 2012. Our activities are
creating U.S. jobs and building infrastructure to support the development of
North American energy resources that will reduce our nation`s reliance on
imports. These investments also enhance the role and value of our partnership,"
concluded Creel. 

Fourth Quarter 2012 Highlights

* Enterprise reported record gross operating margin of $1.2 billion, adjusted
earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization ("Adjusted
EBITDA") of $1.1 billion, net income of $617 million and earnings per unit of
$0.68 on a fully diluted basis. Adjusted EBITDA and net income for the fourth
quarter of 2012 included non-cash charges totaling $27 million, or a loss of
$0.03 per unit on a fully diluted basis, for asset impairments and similar
charges. This compares to gross operating margin of $1.1 billion, Adjusted
EBITDA of $1.2 billion, net income of $726 million and earnings per unit of
$0.82 on a fully diluted basis for the fourth quarter of 2011. Adjusted EBITDA
and net income for the fourth quarter of 2011 included a net benefit of $108
million, or $0.12 per unit on a fully diluted basis, primarily due to gains from
the sales of assets.

Adjusted EBITDA and net income for the three months ended December 31, 2011 included a net benefit of $108 million, or $0.12 per unit on a fully diluted basis, primarily due to gains from the sale of assets.                                                                                  
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    
                      For the year ended December 31, 2012, Adjusted EBITDA and net income included a net benefit of $18 million, or $0.02 per unit on a fully diluted basis, attributable to net gains from the sales of assets and insurance recoveries partially offset by non-cash asset impairment and similar charges. For the year ended December 31, 2011, Adjusted EBITDA and net income included a net benefit of $128 million, or $0.15 per unit on a fully diluted basis, primarily attributable to net gains from the sale of assets.  
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    
             (3)      Distributable cash flow for the three months ended December 31, 2012 and 2011 included proceeds from sales of assets of $31 million and $593 million, respectively. Distributable cash flow for the year ended December 31, 2012 and 2011 included proceeds from sales of assets of $1.2 billion and $1.0 billion, respectively.                                                                                                                                                                                              
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    


* Enterprise increased its cash distribution with respect to the fourth quarter
of 2012 to $0.66 per unit, or $2.64 per unit on an annualized basis, which
represents a 6.5 percent increase from the distribution rate paid with respect
to the fourth quarter of 2011. This is the 34th consecutive quarterly increase
and the 43rd increase since the partnership`s initial public offering in 1998.
The distribution with respect to the fourth quarter of 2012 will be paid on
February 7, 2013 to unitholders of record as of the close of business on January
31, 2013; 
* Enterprise reported distributable cash flow of $886 million for the fourth
quarter of 2012, which provided 1.5 times coverage of the $0.66 per unit cash
distribution that will be paid to common unitholders. Enterprise retained
approximately $308 million of distributable cash flow for the fourth quarter of
2012. Distributable cash flow for the fourth quarter of 2012 included $31
million of net proceeds from sales of assets; 
* Enterprise`s NGL, crude oil, refined products and petrochemical pipeline
volumes for the fourth quarter of 2012 increased 13 percent to a record 4.5
million barrels per day ("BPD") compared to the fourth quarter of 2011. Total
natural gas pipeline volumes were 14.2 trillion British thermal units per day
("TBtud") for both the fourth quarters of 2012 and 2011. NGL fractionation
volumes for the fourth quarter of 2012 increased 15 percent to a record 707
thousand barrels per day ("MBPD"). Equity NGL production for the fourth quarter
of 2012 decreased 14 percent to 96 MBPD, while fee-based natural gas processing
volumes for the fourth quarter of 2012 increased 15 percent to a record 4.7
billion cubic feet per day ("Bcfd"); 
* Enterprise made capital investments of approximately $1.2 billion during the
fourth quarter of 2012, including $84 million of sustaining capital
expenditures; 
* Enterprise had consolidated liquidity (defined as unrestricted cash on hand
and available borrowing capacity under its revolving credit facility) at
December 31, 2012 of approximately $3.2 billion; and 
* Affiliates of privately-held Enterprise Products Company, which collectively
own our general partner and approximately 38 percent of our outstanding limited
partner interests, have expressed their willingness to consider investing at
least $100 million during 2013 to purchase additional common units from
Enterprise Products Partners L.P. The first such purchase is expected to be $25
million through the partnership`s distribution reinvestment plan for the
distribution to be paid on February 7, 2013.

Review of Fourth Quarter 2012 Results

Net income for the fourth quarter of 2012 was $617 million versus $726 million
for the fourth quarter of 2011. Net income attributable to limited partners for
the fourth quarter of 2012 was $0.68 per unit on a fully diluted basis compared
to $0.82 per unit on a fully diluted basis for the fourth quarter of 2011. Net
income for the fourth quarter of 2012 included losses aggregating $27 million,
or a loss of $0.03 per unit on a fully diluted basis, for non-cash asset
impairments and similar charges. Net income for the fourth quarter of 2011
included a net benefit of $108 million, or $0.12 per unit on a fully diluted
basis, primarily due to gains from the sales of assets. 

On January 14, 2013, we announced that the Board of Directors of Enterprise`s
general partner approved an increase in the partnership`s quarterly cash
distribution rate with respect to the fourth quarter of 2012 to $0.66 per unit,
representing a 6.5 percent increase over the $0.62 per unit rate that was paid
with respect to the fourth quarter of 2011. Enterprise generated distributable
cash flow of $886 million for the fourth quarter of 2012 compared to $1.4
billion for the fourth quarter of 2011. Distributable cash flow for the fourth
quarter of 2012 included $31 million of net proceeds from the sale of assets,
while distributable cash flow for the fourth quarter of 2011 included $593
million of cash proceeds from the sale of assets. 

Enterprise`s distributable cash flow for the fourth quarter of 2012 provided 1.5
times coverage of the cash distributions that will be paid on February 7, 2013
to unitholders of record on January 31, 2013. The partnership retained
approximately $308 million of cash flow for the fourth quarter of 2012, which is
available to reinvest in growth capital projects, reduce debt and decrease our
need to issue additional equity. 

"The fourth quarter of 2012 demonstrated the benefits of our investments in
fee-based businesses serving the growing shale plays. Despite our natural gas
processing and related NGL marketing business reporting a $66 million decrease
in gross operating margin compared to the fourth quarter of 2011, primarily due
to lower NGL prices and equity NGL production, Enterprise reported record gross
operating margin of $1.2 billion for the fourth quarter of 2012 driven by record
NGL, crude oil, refined products and petrochemical pipeline volumes of 4.5
million barrels per day, record NGL fractionation volumes of 707,000 barrels per
day and record fee-based natural gas processing volumes of 4.7 billion cubic
feet per day. This was a $61 million increase in gross operating margin compared
to the fourth quarter of 2011. Likewise, our distributable cash flow, excluding
the proceeds from sale of assets, was also a record $855 million in the fourth
quarter of 2012, a $39 million increase compared to the fourth quarter of 2011. 

Review of Segment Performance for the Fourth Quarter of 2012

NGL Pipelines & Services - Gross operating margin for the NGL Pipelines &
Services segment was $632 million for the fourth quarter of 2012 compared to
$635 million for the same quarter of 2011. 

Enterprise`s natural gas processing and related NGL marketing business generated
gross operating margin of $330 million for the fourth quarter of 2012 compared
to $396 million for the fourth quarter of 2011. This $66 million decrease was
largely due to the effects of a decrease in NGL prices and natural gas
processing margins as well as a decrease in equity NGL production from our Rocky
Mountain, Permian Basin and East Texas natural gas processing plants. These
decreases were partially offset by an increase in gross operating margin from
higher fee-based processing volumes at our South Texas and Louisiana facilities.
The South Texas facilities include two processing trains at our new Yoakum,
Texas natural gas processing complex that began operations in mid-2012.
Enterprise`s equity NGL production (the NGLs that the partnership earns title to
as a result of providing processing services) decreased to 96 MBPD for the
fourth quarter of 2012 compared to 112 MBPD for the fourth quarter of 2011
largely due to a decrease in ethane volume extracted in the fourth quarter of
2012. Enterprise reported a 15 percent increase in fee-based processing volumes
to a record 4.7 Bcfd for the fourth quarter of 2012 compared to 4.1 Bcfd for the
fourth quarter of 2011. 

Gross operating margin from the partnership`s NGL pipelines and storage business
increased $50 million to $220 million for the fourth quarter of 2012 from $170
million for the fourth quarter of 2011. Enterprise`s South Texas NGL pipelines,
which include the new Eagle Ford NGL pipeline completed in mid-2012, reported a
$27 million increase in gross operating margin on higher volumes. Gross
operating margin from our NGL export dock on the Houston Ship Channel and a
related pipeline increased $8 million due to higher volumes during the fourth
quarter of 2012. The remainder of the increase in gross operating margin for
this business in the fourth quarter of 2012 was attributable to over twenty NGL
pipelines and storage and terminal facilities. NGL pipeline volumes were a
record 2.5 million BPD for the fourth quarter of 2012, a 269 MBPD increase from
the fourth quarter of 2011. 

Enterprise`s NGL fractionation business reported record gross operating margin
of $82 million for the fourth quarter of 2012 compared to $69 million reported
for the same quarter of 2011. This increase was attributable to a $24 million
increase in gross operating margin at the partnership`s Mont Belvieu
fractionators on a 100 MBPD increase in volume, which more than offset an $11
million decline in gross operating margin from Norco due to lower volumes and
NGL prices. Enterprise began operations at its sixth NGL fractionator at Mont
Belvieu in October 2012. Fractionation volumes for the fourth quarter of 2012
increased 15 percent to a record 707 MBPD compared to the same quarter in 2011. 

Onshore Natural Gas Pipelines & Services - Enterprise`s Onshore Natural Gas
Pipelines & Services segment reported an $11 million increase in gross operating
margin for the fourth quarter of 2012 to a record $210 million from $199 million
for the fourth quarter of 2011. Total onshore natural gas pipeline volumes were
13.4 TBtud in the fourth quarter of 2012 compared to 13.2 TBtud in the fourth
quarter of 2011. 

Gross operating margin from the Texas Intrastate system increased $18 million
from the fourth quarter of 2011 on a 9 percent increase in pipeline volumes,
including growing production from the Eagle Ford Shale. The Acadian Gas system
reported a $14 million increase in gross operating margin as a result of a full
quarter of operations from its Haynesville Extension pipeline, which began
operations on November 1, 2011. The Jonah, Haynesville, San Juan and Fairplay
gathering systems reported an aggregate $12 million decrease in gross operating
margin for the fourth quarter of 2012 compared to the fourth quarter of 2011 on
an aggregate net decrease in volumes of 378 billion British thermal units per
day ("BBtud"). Enterprise had a $5 million decrease in gross operating margin
from our Mississippi natural gas storage facilities, which were sold in December
2011. 

Onshore Crude Oil Pipelines & Services - Gross operating margin from the
partnership`s Onshore Crude Oil Pipelines & Services segment increased to $135
million for the fourth quarter of 2012 from $67 million for the fourth quarter
of 2011. This increase in gross operating margin for the fourth quarter of 2012
was attributable to increased pipeline volumes, primarily on the Seaway pipeline
and Eagle Ford production growth handled by our South Texas pipelines; improved
results from our Cushing storage facility; and higher crude oil marketing
volumes and margins. Total onshore crude oil pipeline volumes increased 32
percent to a record 897 MBPD for the fourth quarter of 2012 from 680 MBPD for
the fourth quarter of 2011. 

Offshore Pipelines & Services - Gross operating margin for the Offshore
Pipelines & Services segment was $42 million for the fourth quarter of 2012
compared to $60 million for the same quarter of 2011. 

The Independence Hub platform and Trail pipeline reported a $20 million decrease
in aggregate gross operating margin to $14 million for the fourth quarter of
2012 from $34 million for the fourth quarter of 2011 attributable to lower
demand fee revenues and lower volumes. The Independence Hub platform earned
demand fee revenues of approximately $4.6 million per month over a 60-month
period that began when it commenced operations in March 2007 until that period
expired in March 2012. Natural gas volumes on the Independence Trail pipeline
were 313 BBtud for the fourth quarter of 2012 compared to 429 BBtud reported for
the fourth quarter of 2011. Total offshore natural gas pipeline volumes
(including those for Independence Trail) decreased 275 BBtud to 786 BBtud for
the fourth quarter of 2012 compared to the fourth quarter of 2011. 

Gross operating margin from Enterprise`s offshore crude oil pipeline business
was $26 million for the fourth quarter of 2012 compared to $20 million for the
fourth quarter of 2011 primarily due to improved results from the Constitution,
Poseidon and Cameron Highway pipelines. Total offshore crude oil pipeline
volumes increased 54 MBPD to 336 MBPD in the fourth quarter of 2012 from 282
MBPD in the same quarter of 2011. Enterprise`s crude oil pipeline volumes for
the fourth quarter of 2012 were the highest since the federal government
initiated its temporary drilling moratorium in June 2010. 

Petrochemical & Refined Products Services - Gross operating margin for the
Petrochemical & Refined Products Services segment was $143 million in the fourth
quarter of 2012 compared to $137 million in the fourth quarter of 2011. 

The partnership`s propylene business reported gross operating margin of $34
million for the fourth quarter of 2012 compared to $44 million in the fourth
quarter of 2011 primarily due to lower volumes and sales margins and higher
operating expenses. Propylene fractionation volumes were 69 MBPD in the fourth
quarter of 2012 compared to 75 MBPD for the same quarter of 2011. Related
propylene pipeline volumes were 116 MBPD during the fourth quarter of 2012
compared to 119 MBPD in the fourth quarter of 2011. 

Enterprise`s butane isomerization business reported gross operating margin of
$25 million in the fourth quarter of 2012 compared to $32 million in the fourth
quarter of 2011 due to a decrease in isomerization volumes and lower revenues
from the sales of by-products. Butane isomerization volumes during the fourth
quarter of 2012 were 93 MBPD compared to 106 MBPD in the fourth quarter of 2011.


Gross operating margin for Enterprise`s octane enhancement and high-purity
isobutylene business was $13 million for the fourth quarter of 2012 compared to
$27 million for the fourth quarter of 2011 largely due to lower volumes as our
octane enhancement plant began its annual turnaround in December 2012, which has
historically been done in the first quarter. The octane enhancement plant
completed its turnaround and returned to full operations in mid-January 2013. 

Enterprise`s refined products pipelines and related services business reported
gross operating margin of $53 million for the fourth quarter of 2012 compared to
$18 million for the fourth quarter of 2011. This $35 million increase in gross
operating margin was largely due to lower operating expenses and improved
performance in refined products marketing, which more than offset a 25 MBPD
decrease in pipeline volumes. Pipeline volumes for this business were 589 MBPD
for the fourth quarter of 2012 compared to 614 MPBD for the fourth quarter of
2011. 

Enterprise`s marine transportation and other services business reported gross
operating margin of $19 million for the fourth quarter of 2012 compared to $17
million for the fourth quarter of 2011. 

Review of Other Items for the Fourth Quarter of 2012

General and administrative costs for the fourth quarter of 2012 decreased to $40
million from $44 million in the fourth quarter of 2011. General and
administrative costs for the fourth quarter of 2011 included approximately $3
million for costs associated with the sale of the partnership`s Mississippi
natural gas storage facilities and the merger with Duncan Energy Partners L.P. 

Interest expense for the fourth quarter of 2012 was $199 million compared to
$183 million for the fourth quarter of 2011 primarily due to a higher average
debt balance in the fourth quarter of 2012 compared to the fourth quarter of
2011. 

Capitalization

Total debt principal outstanding at December 31, 2012 was approximately $16.2
billion, including $1.5 billion of junior subordinated notes to which the
nationally recognized debt rating agencies ascribe partial equity content. At
December 31, 2012, Enterprise had consolidated liquidity (defined as
unrestricted cash on hand and available borrowing capacity under our revolving
credit facility) of approximately $3.2 billion. 

Total capital spending in the fourth quarter of 2012 was approximately $1.2
billion, which includes $84 million of sustaining capital expenditures. We
currently expect sustaining capital expenditures for 2013 will be approximately
$350 million.

 We evaluate segment performance based on the non-GAAP financial measure of gross operating margin. Gross operating margin (either in total or by individual segment) is an important performance measure of the core profitability of our operations. This measure forms the basis of our internal financial reporting and is used by our management in deciding how to allocate capital resources among business segments. We believe that investors benefit from having access to the same financial measures that our        
 management uses in evaluating segment results. The GAAP financial measure most directly comparable to total segment gross operating margin is operating income.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 
 We define total segment gross operating margin as operating income before: (1) depreciation, amortization and accretion expenses; (2) non-cash asset impairment charges; (3) operating lease expenses for which we do not have the payment obligation; (4) gains and losses related to sales of assets and investments; (5) gains and losses related to property damage insurance recoveries; and (6) general and administrative costs. Gross operating margin by segment is calculated by subtracting segment operating costs  
 and expenses (net of the adjustments noted above) from segment revenues, with both segment totals before the elimination of intercompany transactions. In accordance with GAAP, intercompany accounts and transactions are eliminated in consolidation. Gross operating margin is exclusive of other income and expense transactions, income taxes, the cumulative effect of changes in accounting principles and extraordinary charges. Gross operating margin is presented on a 100 percent basis before any allocation of    
 earnings to noncontrolling interests.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 
 We include equity earnings from unconsolidated affiliates in our measurement of segment gross operating margin. Equity investments with industry partners are a significant component of our business strategy. They are a means by which we conduct our operations to align our interests with those of our customers and/or suppliers. This method of operation also enables us to achieve favorable economies of scale relative to the level of investment and business risk assumed. Many of these businesses perform       
 supporting or complementary roles to our other midstream business operations.

 We define distributable cash flow as net income or loss attributable to limited partners adjusted for: (1) the addition of depreciation, amortization and accretion expense; (2) the addition of cash distributions received from unconsolidated affiliates less equity earnings from unconsolidated affiliates; (3) the subtraction of sustaining capital expenditures; (4) the addition of losses or subtraction of gains related to sales of assets and investments and property damage insurance recoveries; (5) the        
 addition of cash proceeds from sales of assets and investments and property damage insurance recoveries; (6) the addition of losses or subtraction of gains on the monetization of interest rate derivative instruments recorded in accumulated other comprehensive income (loss); and (7) the addition or subtraction of other miscellaneous amounts (as applicable) that affect net income or loss for the period.                                                                                                            
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 
 Sustaining capital expenditures are capital expenditures (as defined by GAAP) resulting from improvements to and major renewals of existing assets. Such expenditures serve to maintain existing operations but do not generate additional revenues.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 
 Our management compares the distributable cash flow we generate to the cash distributions we expect to pay our partners. Using this metric, management computes our distribution coverage ratio. Distributable cash flow is an important non-GAAP financial measure for our limited partners since it serves as an indicator of our success in providing a cash return on investment. Specifically, this financial measure indicates to investors whether or not we are generating cash flows at a level that can sustain or    
 support an increase in our quarterly cash distributions. Distributable cash flow is also a quantitative standard used by the investment community with respect to publicly traded partnerships because the value of a partnership unit is, in part, measured by its yield, which is based on the amount of cash distributions a partnership can pay to a unitholder. The GAAP measure most directly comparable to distributable cash flow is net cash flows provided by operating activities.

 We define Adjusted EBITDA as net income minus equity earnings from unconsolidated affiliates; plus distributions received from unconsolidated affiliates, interest expense, provision for (or benefit from) income taxes and depreciation, amortization and accretion expense. Adjusted EBITDA is commonly used as a supplemental financial measure by our management and external users of our financial statements, such as investors, commercial banks, research analysts and rating agencies, to assess: (1) the financial  
 performance of our assets without regard to financing methods, capital structures or historical cost basis; (2) the ability of our assets to generate cash sufficient to pay interest and support our indebtedness; and (3) the viability of projects and the overall rates of return on alternative investment opportunities. Since Adjusted EBITDA excludes some, but not all, items that affect net income or loss and because these measures may vary among other companies, the Adjusted EBITDA data presented in this     
 press release may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies. The GAAP measure most directly comparable to Adjusted EBITDA is net cash flows provided by operating activities.
