Western Gas Partners Announces Third-Quarter 2012 Results

Western Gas Partners, LP (NYSE: WES) today announced third-quarter 2012 financial and operating results. Net income available to limited partners for the third quarter totaled $31.5 million, or $0.33 per common unit (diluted). The Partnership’s third-quarter Adjusted EBITDA (1) was $84.5 million and Distributable cash flow (1) was $64.4 million, resulting in a Coverage ratio (1) of 1.14 times for the period.

Total throughput attributable to Western Gas Partners, LP for the third quarter of 2012 averaged 2,461 MMcf/d, 3 percent higher than the prior quarter and 10 percent above the third quarter of 2011. These results include the net throughput attributable to the Mountain Gas Resources (“MGR”) and Bison assets acquired from Anadarko Petroleum Corporation for all periods of comparison, throughput attributable to the Platte Valley system beginning March 2011, and throughput attributable to the recently acquired 24-percent interest in Chipeta Processing LLC (“Chipeta”) beginning August 2012. Capital expenditures attributable to Western Gas Partners, LP, excluding acquisitions, totaled approximately $141.5 million during the third quarter of 2012. Of this amount, maintenance capital expenditures were approximately $10.8 million, or 13 percent of Adjusted EBITDA.

“With recent compression additions in the rapidly expanding DJ Basin, our business model is performing as expected while we continue to manage downstream issues related to natural gas liquids,” said Western Gas Partners’ President and Chief Executive Officer Don Sinclair. “The stable performance of our core portfolio combined with progress on our major capital projects enables us to announce the goal of raising our quarterly distribution by a minimum of 15 percent in 2013.”

The Partnership previously declared a quarterly distribution of $0.50 per unit for the third quarter of 2012, payable on November 13, 2012, to unitholders of record at the close of business on October 31, 2012, representing a 4-percent increase over the prior quarter and a 19-percent increase over the third-quarter 2011 distribution of $0.42 per unit.
