These results demonstrate the diversity in our businesses and our increasing fee-based margin from projects placed in service in recent years," said Joe Bob Perkins, Chief Executive Officer of the general partner of the Partnership and of Targa Resources Corp. "Our current organic investment program, with $1.7 billion of announced growth capital projects expected to come on line in 2013 and 2014, provides high visibility to our increasing fee-based margin and EBITDA growth, and we continue to evaluate other potential opportunities to add to our announced projects. With $1.1 billion in growth investments expected to be placed in service by the fourth quarter of 2013, we expect to exit 2013 a larger, more diversified company than we are today. Similarly, the Badlands acquisition with its ongoing capital investment program is a fee-based growth project in process.
