DCP Midstream Partners Completes Dropdown Of Interests In Mont Belvieu Fractionators From DCP Midstream LLC

DCP Midstream Partners, LP (NYSE: DPM), or the Partnership, announced today it has completed the previously announced $200 million dropdown of minority interests in two non-operated Mont Belvieu fractionators from the owner of its general partner, DCP Midstream, LLC. This transaction, which is subject to certain customary working capital and other purchase price adjustments, was financed at closing through borrowings under a term loan and the issuance of 1,536,098 DPM common units to DCP Midstream, LLC.

"We remain committed to expand and diversify our business portfolio," said Mark Borer, president and chief executive officer of the Partnership. "The completion of this immediately accretive transaction will provide significant fee-based margins and will support our previously announced distribution growth target for 2012 of 6 to 8 percent.”

2. A 20 percent ownership interest in the Mont Belvieu 1 fractionator (“MB1”), which is operated by ONEOK Partners, L.P. (NYSE: OKS). OKS owns the remaining 80 percent interest in MB1.

In order to fund a portion of the dropdown transaction, the Partnership entered into a $140 million term loan, which will mature on July 2, 2014. The lenders under the term loan are SunTrust Bank, JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., and The Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ, Ltd.
