Enterprise Reports Record Results For 2012

Stocks in this article: EPD

Enterprise Products Partners L.P. (“Enterprise”) (NYSE: EPD) today announced its financial results for the three months and year ended December 31, 2012. For the year ended 2012, Enterprise reported records for each of the following: net income of $2.4 billion; earnings per unit of $2.71 on a fully diluted basis; gross operating margin of $4.4 billion; and distributable cash flow of $4.1 billion, which included $1.2 billion of cash proceeds from sales of assets.

“Enterprise had another record year in 2012,” stated Michael A. Creel, president and CEO of Enterprise. “We benefited from record volumes in our fee-based businesses attributable to production growth, primarily in the Eagle Ford and Haynesville shale plays, and from strong domestic and international demand for NGLs, particularly from the U.S. petrochemical industry and exports. In 2012, our integrated pipeline system transported a record 4.3 million barrels per day of NGLs, crude oil, refined products and petrochemicals and a record 14.5 trillion Btus per day of natural gas; while our NGL fractionators averaged a record 659,000 barrels per day and our processing plants handled a record 4.4 billion cubic feet per day of natural gas on a fee basis.”

“We generated $4.1 billion of distributable cash flow and increased our cash distributions with respect to 2012 by 5.6 percent to $2.57 per unit. Enterprise has increased its cash distribution rate for each of the last 34 consecutive quarters, the longest period for any of the publicly traded energy partnerships, and in excess of 5 percent for each of the last eight years. In 2012, we retained approximately $1.9 billion of cash flow to reinvest in our growth projects and reduce our need to issue additional equity. Excluding $1.2 billion of proceeds from the sales of non-core assets, our distributable cash flow was $2.9 billion, providing 1.3 times coverage of the distributions paid with respect to 2012,” said Creel.
