BreitBurn Energy Partners L.P. (the “Partnership”) (NASDAQ:BBEP) announced today that it has completed the acquisition of oil properties located in Park County in the Big Horn Basin of Wyoming for approximately $93 million from Legacy Energy, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of NiMin Energy Corp, subject to post-closing adjustments. The acquisition was originally announced on April 25, 2012.

Hal Washburn, CEO, said, “We are pleased to announce the completion of this bolt-on acquisition in the Big Horn Basin of Wyoming. This transaction demonstrates the continued success of our growth through acquisitions strategy. In addition, we have two other previously announced acquisitions in the Permian Basin expected to close in early July, which when completed, will bring our 2012 year to date total acquisitions to approximately $300 million. These assets are excellent additions to our portfolio and we remain well positioned to continue to be an active acquirer for the remainder of the year.”
