Targa Resources Partners – Review of Consolidated Second Quarter Results

Three Months Ended June 30, 2013 Compared to Three Months Ended June 30, 2012

The increase in revenues reflected higher realized prices on natural gas and condensate ($148.8 million), higher commodity sales volumes ($50.7 million) and higher fee-based and other revenues ($19.8 million). Partially offsetting these favorable factors was lower realized prices on NGLs ($96.1 million).
