Plains All American Pipeline, L.P. (NYSE: PAA) and PAA Natural Gas Storage (NYSE: PNG) today announced they have expanded the size, extended the tenor and made other amendments to certain of their credit facilities.
PAA expanded its Hedged Inventory Facility from $850 million to $1.4 billion and extended the term by one year. The facility now matures in August 2014. PNG expanded its Revolving Credit Facility from $250 million to $350 million. This facility matures in August 2016.
“The expansion of PAA’s Hedged Inventory Facility more than replaces the $500 million of three-year Sr. Notes maturing in September, 2012 that were utilized to supplement our hedged inventory facility. Furthermore, the increased size and amended terms of the facility support PAA’s expanded activities related to the recent acquisition of BP’s Canadian natural gas liquids business platform and will enhance PAA’s ability to use its storage and related assets to capitalize on volatile market conditions in the crude oil sector,” said Charles Kingswell-Smith, Vice President & Treasurer of Plains All American Pipeline. “We appreciate the continued support of the financial institutions with which we have long-standing relationships and with these amendments we also welcome new institutions to our bank group.”
