HOUSTON -- June 13, 2012

Quorum Business Solutions, Inc. (Quorum), a leading provider of business and
information technology solutions for the oil, gas, and renewable energy
industry, announces another successful year for its interstate pipeline
shipping software solution – Quorum Pipeline Transaction Management^TM (QPTM).
In the past year, Quorum has added 20 interstate pipeline, intrastate pipeline
and LDC assets to the product’s base, bringing the total number of assets
managed to 56.

In January 2012, Quorum successfully released QPTM 4.0. Since that time,
Quorum has begun three new major implementations of the recently released
pipeline transmission software and has another two existing customer upgrades
underway. This version of the pipeline deal capture software includes a
standardized online contracting module (Request for Service) with
mobility-enabled workflow for web / mobile phone access.

“Our success stems from our mission of extending the product lifecycle through
ongoing support and Client direction, which is directly evident in the latest
releaseof our pipeline transaction software,” said Tyson Greer, Vice President
of Quorum. “Through identification of a growing trend and the input of the
user community, Quorum integrated the demand for mobile accessibility and
focused on enhancing the shipper’s experience as part of QPTM 4.0. These
enhancements have reaped benefits for our Clients by improving the shipper’s
interface thereby increasing customer satisfaction, while simultaneously
addressing the expanding requirements of an evolving industry.”

Additionally, enhancements to Quorum’s pipeline transaction software to
support the North American Energy Standards Board (NAESB) 2.0 rollout are
complete and will be delivered to customers in line with the Federal Energy
Regulatory Commission (FERC) mandated timeline. This further cements our track
record for timely NAESB compliance updates for all of our interstate pipeline
