Inter Pipeline Fund Announces Expansion of Polaris Pipeline for the Kearl Oil Sands Project

Inter Pipeline Fund Announces Expansion of Polaris Pipeline for the Kearl Oil 
Sands Project 
CALGARY, ALBERTA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/07/13 -- Inter Pipeline Fund
("Inter Pipeline") (TSX:IPL.UN) announced today that it will increase
capacity on its Polaris Pipeline system in support of the phased
development of the Kearl oil sands project operated by Imperial Oil
Resources Ventures Limited ("Imperial"). Under the terms of an
existing 25-year ship-or-pay diluent transportation contract,
Imperial holds an option to increase its firm capacity commitment on
the Polaris Pipeline from 60,000 barrels per day currently to 120,000
barrels per day. Imperial has exercised its option and, accordingly,
Inter Pipeline will install additional pumping capacity on the
Polaris system to meet Imperial's higher diluent requirements. 
Inter Pipeline will utilize its existing 12-inch diameter Polaris
diluent pipeline, which runs from the Edmonton area to the Kearl
project north of Fort McMurray, to supply additional diluent
transportation capacity. Inter Pipeline will invest approximately $45
million to expand mainline capacity through the re-commissioning of
three existing pump stations on the Polaris system, which were
removed from service in 2011. Upon completion, capacity on the
Polaris 12-inch pipeline will increase to approximately 165,000
barrels per day to meet diluent demand from Imperial and other third
party shippers. The new pump station facilities are expected to be in
service by mid 2015. 
Inter Pipeline currently receives approximately $37 million in annual
EBITDA for diluent transportation services under the existing Polaris
ship-or-pay agreement with Imperial. As a result of Imperial's higher
capacity commitment, Inter Pipeline expects to receive incremental
EBITDA of $19 million per year once the new Polaris mainline
facilities are in service.
