Inter Pipeline Fund to Provide Diluent Transportation for Suncor
CALGARY, ALBERTA -- (Marketwire) -- 12/10/12 -- Inter Pipeline Fund
("Inter Pipeline") (TSX:IPL.UN) is pleased to announce it has entered
into a binding agreement to transport diluent to Suncor Energy Inc.'s
oil sands operations. Under the terms of this 5-year ship or pay
agreement, Inter Pipeline will provide Suncor with 10,000 barrels per
day (b/d) of committed capacity on its Polaris pipeline system.  
Diluent will be transported from receipt points in the Edmonton area
to Inter Pipeline's Sunrise metering station located northeast of
Fort McMurray utilizing the 12-inch diameter Polaris mainline that
entered commercial service in August of this year. Inter Pipeline
will construct a new $8 million metering facility adjacent to the
Sunrise delivery site to handle the Suncor volumes. Diluent
deliveries will then be transferred from the Polaris pipeline to a
local distribution pipeline owned by Suncor. 
Construction will commence in late 2012 and the new facilities are
expected to enter service by May 2013. This accretive transportation
agreement will generate approximately $10 million per year in EBITDA
that will remain constant over the life of the contract. All
operating costs will be recovered on a flow through basis. 
"We are pleased to add Canada's largest energy company to our list of
high quality shippers on the Polaris pipeline system," stated David
Fesyk, President and CEO of Inter Pipeline. "This agreement further
establishes Polaris as the leading diluent distribution system to
Alberta's oil sands industry."
