Targa Resources Partners – Review of Consolidated Third Quarter Results

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

The increase in revenues primarily reflects higher commodity sales volumes ($77.4 million), higher realized prices on natural gas and condensate ($61.7 million), and higher fee-based and other revenues ($34.4 million).

The increase in consolidated gross margin was driven by increased volumes and higher natural gas prices in our Field Gathering and Processing segment and higher fractionation fees and increased exports activities in our Logistics and Marketing division. These favorable factors were partially offset by lower NGL prices in our Coastal Gathering and Processing segment. Higher operating expenses were driven by system expansions related to new operations in Field Gathering and Processing and of new growth projects in Logistics, costs associated with our Badlands growth and other higher labor and maintenance costs. See "Targa Resources Partners – Review of Segment Performance" for additional information regarding changes in the components of gross and operating margin on a disaggregated basis.
