Crestwood Midstream Announces Second Quarter 2014 Financial and Operating Results

August 6, 2014

HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Crestwood Midstream Partners LP (NYSE:CMLP) (“Crestwood”) reported today its financial results for the three months ended June 30, 2014.

“Crestwood’s second quarter 2014 results showed continued quarterly improvement, posting an 11% increase in Adjusted EBITDA over the first quarter 2014, and a 29% increase over the third quarter 2013, which was the initial quarter we reported combined results following our merger last year,” stated Robert G. Phillips, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Crestwood’s general partner. “During the quarter, our three operating segments and key assets in the Marcellus, Bakken and Barnett shale plays all delivered better performance due to improving volume growth on our systems and higher demand for our services. In fact, we achieved record natural gas and crude oil volumes through our systems during the quarter. As a result, our cash distribution coverage ratio increased to 0.96 times quarterly distributions paid for the second quarter, which is an important 2014 goal for the partnership.”

  Following the Crestwood-Inergy merger completed in October 2013, Crestwood restated its combined financial and operating results to the beginning of the third quarter 2013. Where appropriate, we have compared second quarter 2014 results to first quarter 2014 or third quarter 2013 for purposes of providing more meaningful disclosure to investors. In addition, results discussed herein do not include the natural gas liquids (“NGL”) business and the Gulf Coast natural gas storage and transportation assets owned by Crestwood Equity Partners LP.

Adjusted EBITDA and distributable cash flow are non-GAAP measures. Please refer to the financial tables accompanying this release for reconciliation to GAAP.

(3)

Represents distributable cash flow divided by cash distribution declared for the quarter with respect to our limited partners units. This calculation does not include the impact of any non-cash distributions on preferred securities we have issued.
  • Adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization and accretion (“Adjusted EBITDA”) totaled $109.7 million in the second quarter 2014, an 11% sequential increase over the first quarter 2014 and a 29% increase over the third quarter 2013.
  • Net income (loss) for the three months ended June 30, 2014, March 31, 2014 and December 31, 2013 included non-cash accruals of $6.5 million, $2.1 million, and $31.4 million, respectively, related to an earn-out premium associated with the acquisition of the Marcellus gathering system from Antero Resources (“Antero”) in 2012.
  • Distributable cash flow increased to $81.5 million in the second quarter, a 16% increase from first quarter 2014, resulting in continued improvement of the cash distribution coverage ratio to 0.96x for the second quarter 2014.
  • Crestwood announced a quarterly cash distribution of $0.41 per common unit, or $1.64 per common unit on an annualized basis. The announced distribution will be paid on August 14, 2014, to common unitholders of record as of the close of business on August 7, 2014.
  • Crestwood completed an important long-term financing in the second quarter 2014 by raising $500 million of new equity capital through the issuance of $300 million of Class A preferred units, with an additional $200 million of Class A preferred units to be issued by September 30, 2015. The additional equity resulted in an improved leverage ratio, another 2014 goal of the partnership, and will provide sufficient growth capital for the remainder of 2014 and well into 2015.

    2014 Guidance

    Based on Crestwood’s first half 2014 results, we have revised our estimate of full year 2014 Adjusted EBITDA to a range of $440 million to $460 million as compared to the original estimate of $465 million to $510 million. This change is largely the result of a slower than forecast ramp up of Bakken crude oil volumes at the COLT Hub and the Arrow gathering system primarily due to the colder than normal winter of 2013-14 and its impact on crude production and drilling activities. Additionally, the revised estimate reflects delays in achieving certain expected merger integration cost savings and operational synergies during the first half of 2014. Crestwood’s revised full year 2014 distributable cash flow estimate is now $320 million to $340 million as compared to the original estimate of $330 million to $360 million due to lower cash interest payments and the expected receipt of customer deficiency payments.

    Second Quarter 2014 Financial and Operating Segment Results

    Gathering and processing segment EBITDA totaled $51.0 million in the second quarter, compared to $48.2 million in the first quarter 2014, excluding the impact of the non-cash accrual for the Antero earn-out which has now been fully accrued and will be paid in the first quarter 2015. Natural gas gathering volumes increased 7% to a record 1,213 million cubic feet per day (“MMcf/d”) during the second quarter compared to the first quarter, based on a 10% increase in Marcellus shale volumes and 24% increase in Barnett dry volumes.

    Storage and transportation segment EBITDA totaled $37.8 million during the second quarter 2014 compared to $36.8 million in the first quarter 2014. The increase resulted from higher revenues from usage fees on our firm natural gas storage and transportation contracts and increased revenues on interruptible transportation revenues due to increased Marcellus shale producer activity and increased locational basis spreads in the Northeast.

    NGL and crude services segment EBITDA totaled $34.7 million during the second quarter 2014, a 32% sequential increase from $26.3 million in the first quarter 2014. The increase was primarily attributable to higher gathering volumes of crude oil, natural gas and produced water on the Arrow system, which increased 27%, 44% and 53%, respectively, over the first quarter 2014. Additionally, rail loading volumes at the COLT Hub increased to 112 thousand barrels per day (“MBbls/d”) in the second quarter 2014, a 14% sequential increase over the first quarter.

    Corporate expenses include general and administrative expenses not allocated to the operating segments above. Corporate expenses during the second quarter 2014 totaled $21.3 million, compared with $24.1 million in the first quarter 2014. The decrease was attributable to lower significant transaction-related expenses, which totaled $1.5 million in the second quarter 2014 compared with $5.8 million in the first quarter 2014, partially offset by increased non-cash equity compensation expense.

    Project Update / Business Outlook

    Marcellus Shale

    In the rich gas southwest portion of the Marcellus Shale, Antero’s active drilling program and the completion of several Crestwood gathering and compression projects in recent months drove increased volumes. In the eastern area of dedication, the Stark compressor station was completed in July 2014, increasing total system gathering capacity to 750 MMcf/d. The Banner compressor station is expected to be completed in the fourth quarter 2014 increasing gathering capacity to approximately 875 MMcf/d. Gathering volumes in the second quarter 2014 totaled 585 MMcf/d, an increase of 10% over the first quarter and 41% over the second quarter 2013. Gathering volumes in July 2014 have averaged more than 655 MMcf/d and we continue to expect that gathering volumes will increase to approximately 750 MMcf/d by the end of 2014. During the second quarter of 2014, we also completed an additional 120 MMcf/d compressor station in Antero's western development area leading to total compression volumes of 471 MMcf/d in the second quarter, a 5% increase from the first quarter 2014 and 65% over the second quarter 2013.

    In the dry gas northern portion of the Marcellus Shale, our storage and transportation assets continued to operate at record volume levels during the second quarter 2014 as a result of increasing regional production. Firm storage and transportation services increased 14% over the first quarter 2014 to 1.6 billion cubic feet per day. As a result of an open season held earlier in 2014, customer precedent agreements for an additional 117,000 dekatherms per day (“Dth/d”) of firm capacity on these systems have been executed and are expected to begin in the first quarter of 2015 following the installation of additional compression capacity on the systems.

    Bakken Shale

    Production continues to increase in the Bakken Shale, following the harsh winter that negatively impacted our first quarter 2014 results and led to the downward revision to Crestwood’s original 2014 guidance. In the second quarter 2014, Crestwood’s Bakken crude business handled a combined total of 200 MBbls/d, up 32% from the first quarter 2014.

    Arrow crude oil gathering volumes averaged 56 MBbls/d, natural gas gathering volumes averaged 29 MMcf/d and produced water gathering averaged 19 MBbls/d, up 27%, 44%, and 53%, respectively, over the first quarter 2014. Gathering volumes of crude oil, natural gas and produced water in July 2014 averaged 60 MBbls/d, 37 MMcf/d, and 20 MBbls/d, respectively. Due to increased producer drilling and completion activities in the second quarter, 36 wells were connected to the Arrow system, compared to 9 in the first quarter, and we expect an additional 43 wells to be connected to our system in the second half of 2014.

    Crude-by-rail loadings at our COLT Hub continued to increase, with second quarter volumes of 112 MBbls/d, up 14% over the first quarter, and pipeline deliveries of 9 MBbls/d. We are on schedule to complete an additional release and departure track at the COLT Hub in the fourth quarter 2014, which will increase the capacity for our customers to load additional unit trains. The COLT Hub is contracted on a take-or-pay basis and in the second quarter 2014 we recognized $3.8 million of deficiency payments in distributable cash flow under these contracts.

    During the second quarter 2014, we completed the acquisition of another Bakken trucking business which expands our crude oil and produced water trucking business to 48 MBbls/d. In addition, we acquired 10 MBbls/d of firm transportation capacity on Tesoro’s High Plains crude oil pipeline, which is being expanded and connects our Arrow system and COLT Hub. The expansion capacity is expected to be placed into service in September 2014.

    Powder River Basin (PRB) Niobrara

    Expansion of the Jackalope gas gathering system and construction of the 120 MMcf/d Bucking Horse gas processing plant remains on schedule to be completed in the fourth quarter 2014. Gas gathering volumes on the Jackalope system in the second quarter 2014 were 44 MMcf/d and were constrained due to third-party processing limitations. Under Jackalope’s cost of service structure, gathering fees in 2014 have been increased substantially to offset lower than expected volumes on the Jackalope system. Chesapeake continues to operate three drilling rigs on the Jackalope acreage and has developed an inventory of approximately 36 drilled but uncompleted wells available to be connected to the system when the Bucking Horse plant is placed in service. Recently, Chesapeake and RKI announced an acreage exchange resulting in a more concentrated acreage position owned by Chesapeake in the Jackalope gathering area. As part of that announcement, Chesapeake announced favorable drilling results in the area and the plan to potentially increase drilling activity on the dedicated area in 2015.

    Crestwood’s 50%-owned Douglas crude rail terminal, located approximately eight miles from the Bucking Horse plant, was converted to unit train service in May 2014. Chesapeake’s crude production volumes continue to increase at the facility and have recently loaded up to 11 MBbls/d in the later part of July. The terminal is being expanded to provide up to 20 MBbls/d of unit train rail loading capacity and to include 240,000 barrels of working storage capacity by the end of 2014.

    Barnett Shale

    Gas gathering volumes on our Barnett Shale systems increased 13% to 439 MMcf/d in the second quarter compared to 387 MMcf/d in the first quarter 2014. This increase was largely attributable to a 24% increase in dry gas volumes to 264 MMcf/d in the second quarter due to new wells connected, increased gas lift volumes, lower wellhead pressures and additional volumes received from third-party pipelines. Second quarter gathering volumes in the rich gas areas were flat with first quarter 2014 volumes due to lower wellhead operating pressures and enhanced recovery that offset production decline rates. We have recently entered into an incentive gathering fee arrangement with Quicksilver Resources which should lead to increased drilling and volumes from new acreage dedications. We expect Quicksilver to run at least one drilling rig in the Barnett throughout the remainder of 2014 and continue to optimize well performance to minimize natural production declines.

    Delaware/Permian

    Crestwood completed a 20 MMcf/d expansion of its Willow Lake processing facility in July 2014 and expects gas volumes to ramp up from increased drilling activity by Legend Production Holdings, LLC and other area producers during the second half of 2014. In the second quarter 2014, the Willow Lake facility handled gas volumes of 6 MMcf/d being developed from the Bone Spring 2 formation in Eddy County, New Mexico.

    Capital Spending and Liquidity

    Growth capital expenditures and joint venture contributions for the six months ended June 30, 2014 totaled approximately $191 million, including pipeline laterals and compression equipment in the Marcellus Shale, expansion of the COLT Hub and Arrow gathering system in the Bakken, and construction of the Bucking Horse processing facility in the PRB Niobrara. Capital spending and joint venture contributions for the full year 2014 are forecasted to total between $425 million and $450 million, including approximately $20 million for maintenance capital projects.

    At June 30, 2014, Crestwood had approximately $1,871 million of debt outstanding, composed primarily of $1,450 million of fixed-rate senior notes and approximately $412 million outstanding under its revolving credit facility. The revolving credit facility has a maximum borrowing capacity of $1.0 billion and matures in 2019. As noted above, Crestwood has $200 million of remaining equity commitment available under its $500 million Class A preferred equity commitment as well as $300 million of common units available for issuance under an at-the-market (“ATM”) offering program.

    (a)   EBITDA is defined as income before income taxes, plus net interest and debt expense, and depreciation, amortization and accretion expense. In addition, Adjusted EBITDA considers the adjusted earnings impact of our unconsolidated affiliates by adjusting our equity earnings or losses from our unconsolidated affiliates for our proportionate share of their depreciation and interest, the impact of certain significant items, such as non-cash equity compensation expenses, gains and impairments of long-lived assets and goodwill, third party costs incurred related to potential and completed acquisitions, loss on contingent consideration, and other transactions identified in a specific reporting period. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are not measures calculated in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (GAAP), as they do not include deductions for items such as depreciation, amortization and accretion, interest and income taxes, which are necessary to maintain our business. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered an alternative to net income, operating cash flow or any other measure of financial performance presented in accordance with GAAP. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA calculations may vary among entities, so our computation may not be comparable to measures used by other companies.
    (b) Cash interest expense is book interest expense less amortization of deferred financing costs plus bond premium amortization.
    (c) Maintenance capital expenditures are defined as those capital expenditures which do not increase operating capacity or revenues from existing levels.
    (d) Distributable cash flow is defined as Adjusted EBITDA, less cash interest expense, maintenance capital expenditures, income taxes, deficiency payments (primarily related to deferred revenue), and other adjustments. Distributable cash flow should not be considered an alternative to cash flows from operating activities or any other measure of financial performance calculated in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles as those items are used to measure operating performance, liquidity, or the ability to service debt obligations. We believe that distributable cash flow provides additional information for evaluating our ability to declare and pay distributions to unitholders. Distributable cash flow, as we define it, may not be comparable to distributable cash flow or similarly titled measures used by other corporations and partnerships.
