  Kinder Morgan Preparing to Resume Service at New York Harbor Terminals

Business Wire

HOUSTON -- November 01, 2012

Kinder Morgan Energy Partners, L.P. (NYSE: KMP) today announced its New York
Harbor terminals that were shut down due to Hurricane Sandy and remain without
electric power, are expected to be ready to begin inbound and outbound
petroleum product movements at Carteret, N.J., Perth Amboy, N.J., and Staten
Island, N.Y., within the next 24 to 48 hours. Kinder Morgan’s Mid Atlantic
terminals are operational and are moving and receiving products.

“Like others, we experienced flooding, damage and a loss of electricity at our
Northeast facilities,” KMP Terminals President Jeff Armstrong said. “Thanks to
our pre-storm preparations, and extremely dedicated employees working around
the clock following the storm, we have made significant progress in assessing
these terminals and preparing to resume service. We will be able to resume
operations even if power has not been restored, as we have brought in power
generation resources from our operations elsewhere. Additionally, we are
working closely with government agencies to restart operations as soon as
possible.”
