Plains All American Pipeline, L.P. Completes Merger Of PAA Natural Gas Storage, L.P.

Plains All American Pipeline, L.P. (NYSE: PAA) (“PAA”) and PAA Natural Gas Storage, L.P. (NYSE: PNG) (“PNG”) today jointly announced the completion of the merger of PNG with a wholly-owned subsidiary of PAA, with PNG surviving the merger as a wholly-owned subsidiary of PAA, effective today, December 31, 2013. PNG’s common unitholders approved the merger in a special meeting held today in Houston, Texas. Under the terms of the merger agreement, each PNG unitholder eligible to receive the merger consideration will receive 0.445 common units of PAA for each PNG common unit owned by such unitholder, plus cash in lieu of any fractional common units of PAA otherwise issuable in the merger.

The transaction is expected to result in the issuance of approximately 14.7 million common units of PAA. In connection with the closing of the merger, the owners of PAA’s general partner have agreed to reduce their incentive distribution rights under PAA’s agreement of limited partnership by $12 million in each of 2014 and 2015, $10 million in 2016 and $5 million per year thereafter.

As a result of the completion of the merger, common units of PNG will be delisted and, as of the opening of the stock market on January 2, 2014, will no longer be publicly traded. PAA common units will continue to be traded on the New York Stock Exchange under the ticker symbol “PAA.”
