Management Commentary

Hal Washburn, CEO, said: “The Partnership had an exceptional year with record production, record Adjusted EBITDA, sequential distribution growth, and the completion of seven acquisitions in Texas, California, and Wyoming. We are very pleased to have exceeded our acquisition target of $300 million to $500 million for the year by completing over $600 million in acquisitions which were primarily oil. We also established a significant presence in the Permian Basin and greatly expanded the organic growth opportunities in our portfolio. The Partnership is very well positioned to execute on its 2013 capital program and its growth through acquisitions strategy.”
