Kinder Morgan Announces Investment Of Approximately $130 Million In New Condensate Processing Facility

Stocks in this article: KMI KMP

Kinder Morgan Energy Partners, L.P. (NYSE: KMP) today announced it will build, own and operate a petroleum condensate processing facility near its Galena Park terminal on the Houston Ship Channel. With an initial throughput of 25,000 barrels per day (bpd) and a design that provides for future expansions of up to 100,000 bpd, the approximately $130 million project will split condensate into its various components such as light and heavy naphthas, kerosene and gas oil. A major oil industry customer is underwriting, through a fee structure, the initial throughput of the facility.

“The location of our new facility, when combined with our recently announced $220 million crude/condensate pipeline, will provide customers with unparalleled connectivity to crude oil and clean products markets including refineries, chemical companies, gasoline blenders, finished product storage, outbound pipelines and marine facilities on the Texas Gulf Coast,” said KMP Products Pipelines President Tom Bannigan. The transaction is expected to be immediately accretive to cash distributable to KMP unitholders upon the project’s completion in January 2014.

The pipeline, which will transport crude/condensate from the Eagle Ford Shale in south Texas to the Houston Ship Channel, will consist of almost 70 miles of new-build construction and 113 miles of converted natural gas pipeline. Construction on the pipeline began this week and Kinder Morgan expects it to be in service in the second quarter of 2012.

Kinder Morgan Energy Partners, L.P. (NYSE: KMP) is a leading pipeline transportation and energy storage company in North America. KMP owns an interest in or operates more than 28,000 miles of pipelines and 180 terminals. Its pipelines transport natural gas, gasoline, crude oil, CO2 and other products, and its terminals store petroleum products and chemicals and handle such products as ethanol, coal, petroleum coke and steel. KMP is also the leading provider of CO2 for enhanced oil recovery projects in North America. One of the largest publicly traded pipeline limited partnerships in America, KMP has an enterprise value of over $35 billion.
