Plains All American Pipeline, PAA Natural Gas Storage Renew Credit Facilities; PAA Launches Commercial Paper Program

Plains All American Pipeline, L.P. (NYSE: PAA) and PAA Natural Gas Storage (NYSE: PNG) today announced that they have closed the renewal and extension of their principal bank credit facilities. PAA also announced today that the company has established an unsecured commercial paper program on a private placement basis.

PAA renewed two credit facilities: a $1.6 billion, five-year senior unsecured revolving credit facility and a $1.4 billion, three-year senior secured hedged inventory facility. The maturities associated with these facilities represent two-year extensions of previous facilities, which now mature in August 2018 and August 2016, respectively. Both facilities contain accordion features that permit PAA (subject to receipt of incremental lender commitments) to increase borrowing capacity to $2.1 billion and $1.9 billion, respectively.

PNG extended the maturity of its $550 million, five-year senior unsecured credit facility by one year. The facility now matures in August 2017. The credit facility includes a $200 million Gulf Coast Opportunity Zone (GO Zone) tax-exempt term loan and a $350 million revolving credit facility. The revolver includes an accordion feature that permits PNG (subject to receipt of incremental lender commitments) to increase borrowing capacity to $550 million.

Bank of America, N.A. will serve as Administrative Agent for the facilities. Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner & Smith Incorporated served as Joint Lead Arranger for the facilities and was joined by Citigroup; DNB; J.P. Morgan; Societe Generale; SunTrust Robinson Humphrey; and Wells Fargo Securities, LLC as Joint Lead Arrangers on one or more of the facilities. The new credit facilities became effective on August 16, 2013.

Pursuant to the commercial paper program, PAA or its indirect subsidiary Plains Midstream Canada ULC (“PMC”) may issue, from time to time, unsecured commercial paper notes up to a maximum aggregate amount outstanding at any time of $1.5 billion. The notes will be backstopped by PAA’s revolving credit facilities, and any commercial paper notes issued by PMC will be guaranteed by PAA. The proceeds from the issuance of the notes will be used for general partnership purposes.
