Business Wire

HOUSTON, DENVER & THE WOODLANDS, Texas -- October 31, 2013

Enterprise Products Partners L.P. (NYSE: EPD), Enbridge Energy Partners, L.P.,
(NYSE: EEP), Anadarko Petroleum Corporation (NYSE: APC) and DCP Midstream
Partners LP (NYSE: DPM) today announced the start of service on the Texas
Express natural gas liquids (“NGL”) pipeline from Skellytown, Texas to the NGL
fractionation and storage complex in Mont Belvieu, Texas. The Texas Express
Pipeline, operated by Enterprise, gives producers in West and Central Texas,
the Rocky Mountains, southern Oklahoma, the Mid-continent and the
Denver-Julesburg basin much-needed takeaway capacity for growing NGL volumes
and improved access to the largest NGL trading hub, located along the Gulf

NGL volumes from the Rockies, Permian Basin and Mid-continent regions will be
transported to the Texas Express mainline through Enterprise’s Mid-America
Pipeline system between the Conway hub and its Hobbs facility in Gaines
County, Texas. NGL volumes from the Denver-Julesburg Basin will be transported
to the Texas Express mainline by the Front Range Pipeline (owned by a joint
venture comprised of Enterprise, Anadarko and DCP Midstream Partners, each
with a one-third interest), which is under construction and expected to be
in-service in the first quarter of 2014.

Supported by long-term contracts, the 583-mile pipeline has an initial
capacity of approximately 280,000 barrels per day (“BPD”) and can be readily
expanded to approximately 400,000 BPD. By providing greater access to domestic
NGLs, Texas Express will help ensure reliable supplies of natural gas-derived
feedstocks which offer a cost advantage compared to crude oil-based

Enterprise and Enbridge Energy Partners each hold a 35 percent interest in
Texas Express Pipeline LLC, with Anadarko having a 20 percent ownership
interest and DCP Midstream Partners owning the remaining 10 percent stake.

In addition to the start of operations on the pipeline, service has also begun
on two NGL gathering systems developed by Texas Express Gathering LLC, a
second joint venture comprised of Enterprise (45 percent ownership), Enbridge
Energy Partners (35 percent ownership) and Anadarko (20 percent ownership).
Enbridge Energy Partners serves as operator of the two gathering systems,
which link natural gas processing plants in the Anadarko/Granite Wash and
Central Texas/Barnett Shale production areas to the Texas Express Pipeline.
