Proposed JV Terms

The proposed Gathering JV will construct, own and operate certain natural gas gathering assets for natural gas produced in Western West Virginia and Eastern Ohio. Magnum Hunter and DCP will each own 50 percent of the proposed Gathering JV. The estimated total construction cost to complete the initial gathering pipeline facilities is approximately $35 million, with Magnum Hunter funding approximately $12.5 million of that amount and DCP funding approximately $22.5 million. Terms for the Gathering JV also include a $5 million payment by DCP to Magnum Hunter at closing for certain rights of way that are being contributed by the Company and are in excess of the initial gathering pipeline project.

Once the initial facility is constructed, the two JV partners plan to fund the Gathering JV's future capital requirements for expansion facilities on a 50/50 cost basis. Closing of the proposed joint venture, which is expected to occur during the fourth quarter of 2010, is subject to the negotiation, execution and board approval of definitive documentation and receipt of customary third party consents and approvals.
