Chesapeake Midstream Partners, L.P. (NYSE:CHKM) today announced financial results for the 2011 fourth quarter and full year. The Partnership’s 2011 fourth quarter net income totaled $66.3 million, down $23.6 million from the 2010 fourth quarter. Adjusted ebitda for the 2011 fourth quarter was $110.0 million, down $5.6 million, or 4.8%, from 2010 fourth quarter adjusted ebitda of $115.6 million. The fourth quarter results include revenue associated with minimum volume commitments (MVC) of $17.4 million in 2011 as compared to $56.8 million in 2010. Annual revenue from MVC is recognized in the fourth quarter of each year. After eliminating the MVC impact in each period, fourth quarter adjusted ebitda was up 57.5% and net income was up 47.8%.

The Partnership’s 2011 full year net income was $194.3 million, down $0.9 million, or 0.5%, compared to 2010 full year net income of $195.2 million. Adjusted ebitda for the 2011 full year was $349.5 million, an increase of $55.5 million, or 18.9%, compared to 2010 adjusted ebitda of $294.0 million.

Adjusted distributable cash flow (DCF) for the 2011 fourth quarter totaled $78.9 million, an increase of $30.0 million, or 61.3%, compared to the 2010 fourth quarter and resulted in a coverage ratio of 1.34. DCF for the 2011 full year was $262.0 million and resulted in a full year coverage ratio of 1.23. Financial terms are defined on pages three and four of this release.

Throughput for the 2011 fourth quarter totaled 213.4 billion cubic feet (bcf) of natural gas, or 2.32 bcf per day, an increase of 41.5% from 2010 fourth quarter throughput of 1.64 bcf per day. For the 2011 full year, total throughput was 794.3 bcf of natural gas, or 2.18 bcf per day, an increase of 36.3% from 2010 full year throughput of 1.60 bcf per day. The increases in throughput were driven by the Haynesville Springridge gas gathering system acquired in December 2010 and strong well-connect performance in the Barnett Shale region. The Partnership connected 166 new wells to its gathering systems during the 2011 fourth quarter, an increase of 31.7% compared to the 2010 fourth quarter, resulting in the most well connects for any quarter during 2011. For the 2011 full year, the Partnership connected 610 wells to its systems, an increase of 42.9% compared to 2010.
