Kinder Morgan Announces 2013 Financial Expectations

Kinder Morgan today announced its preliminary 2013 projections for Kinder Morgan, Inc. (NYSE: KMI), Kinder Morgan Energy Partners, L.P. (NYSE: KMP), Kinder Morgan Management, LLC (NYSE: KMR) and El Paso Pipeline Partners, L.P. (NYSE: EPB). Chairman and CEO Richard D. Kinder stated, “We anticipate strong growth in 2013 across the Kinder Morgan family of companies. KMI’s growth is driven primarily by its ownership of the general partners of KMP and EPB. The majority of our assets resides at KMP and EPB. KMR is financially equivalent to KMP, but does not own any assets. Kinder Morgan primarily owns or operates a diversified portfolio of fee-based energy assets that generate substantial cash flow in virtually all types of market conditions. With our large footprint of midstream assets in North America, we are confident that Kinder Morgan is well positioned for future growth.”

KMI expects to declare dividends of $1.57 per share for 2013. This represents a 16 percent increase over KMI’s 2012 budget target of $1.35 per share and a 12 percent increase over the $1.40 per share of dividends it expects to declare for 2012. Growth at KMI in 2013 is expected to be driven by continued strong performance at KMP, along with contributions from EPB and the natural gas assets that KMI acquired in the El Paso Corporation transaction.

KMP expects to declare cash distributions of $5.28 per unit for 2013, a 6 percent increase over its 2012 budget target of $4.98 per unit, which it expects to meet. KMP’s 2013 budget projection includes the expected purchase (dropdowns) of 50 percent of El Paso Natural Gas Pipeline and a 50 percent stake in midstream assets from KMI, which would give KMP 100 percent ownership of these assets. (KMR also expects to declare distributions of $5.28 per share for 2013 and the distribution to KMR shareholders will be paid in the form of additional KMR shares.)
