Crestwood Announces Fourth Quarter 2012 Distribution and Release Date
for 2012 Earnings 
HOUSTON, TX -- (Marketwire) -- 01/16/13 --   Crestwood Midstream
Partners LP (NYSE: CMLP) ("Crestwood") announced today that it is
maintaining its quarterly distribution of $0.51 per unit, or $2.04
per unit on an annualized basis, for the quarter ended December 31,
2012. This distribution will be payable on February 12, 2013, to
unitholders of record on January 31, 2013. Distributions for the full
year 2012 totaled $2.02 per unit, an 8% increase over the full year
2011. 
"Crestwood will maintain its current quarterly distribution at $0.51
per unit for the fourth quarter 2012 distribution, which is in line
with our previously stated expectations for the full year 2012,"
stated Robert G. Phillips, Chairman, President and Chief Executiv
e
Officer of Crestwood's general partner. "While 2012 was a challenging
year for the partnership due to slower than expected producer
development on our dry gas systems, our mid-year shift to rich gas
assets and the recently completed drop down acquisition of Crestwood
Marcellus Midstream LLC ('CMM') has positioned Crestwood for higher
growth rates in 2013," Phillips added.  
With respect to the fourth quarter 2012 distribution, Crestwood's
existing Class C units will receive additional Class C units in lieu
of a cash distribution. The Class C units will convert to common
units on April 1, 2013. The recently issued Class D units, relating
to the CMM transaction, will begin receiving distributions for the
first quarter 2013, which will be declared in the second quarter
2013. The Class D units will have the same pay-in-kind feature as the
current Class C units until March 1, 2014, when they will convert to
common units.  
Crestwood plans to report financial results for the fourth quarter
2012 on Tuesday, February 26, 2013, before the New York Stock
Exchange opens for trading. Following the announcement, Crestwood
