Inter Pipeline to Provide Diluent Transportation for Athabasca Oil Corporation Hangingstone Project

Inter Pipeline to Provide Diluent Transportation for Athabasca Oil Corporation 
Hangingstone Project 
CALGARY, ALBERTA -- (Marketwired) -- 11/06/13 -- Inter Pipeline Ltd.
("Inter Pipeline") (TSX:IPL) announced today that it has entered into
a binding agreement with AOC Hangingstone Partnership, a wholly owned
subsidiary of Athabasca Oil Corporation ("AOC"), to provide diluent
transportation services for AOC's multi-phase Hangingstone oil sands
project. Under the terms of a 25-year ship-or-pay agreement, Inter
Pipeline will provide AOC with an initial 4,500 barrels per day of
committed capacity on its Polaris pipeline in support of the first
production phase of the Hangingstone project. 
AOC, through the Hangingstone Partnership, expects to develop the
Hangingstone project in several phases over the coming years. Inter
Pipeline holds the exclusive right to provide diluent transportation
for future phases of the project. Should all three planned phases be
developed, Inter Pipeline estimates that the Hangingstone project may
require up to 30,000 barrels per day of diluent. 
Inter Pipeline will initially provide transportation service
utilizing Polaris' existing 12-inch diameter diluent mainline. A new
$25 million, 4 kilometer pipeline lateral with associated metering
facilities will connect Polaris to the AOC Hangingstone oil sands
facility. Diluent capacity for Phases 2 and 3 of the AOC Hangingstone
project is expected to be provided through a future extension of the
new 30-inch diameter Polaris mainline that is currently under
construction. A map of the new connection to the AOC Hangingstone
project is available on our website at 
"Inter Pipeline is pleased to add AOC to our growing portfolio of
diluent delivery customers on the Polaris pipeline system," stated
David Fesyk, President and Chief Executive Officer of Inter Pipeline.
"Over the past two years we have signed transportation contracts with
six oil sands customers on Polaris, representing committed volumes in
excess of 500,000 barrels per day. These firm capacity contracts
continue to support the phased, capital efficient expansion of the
Polaris system." 
Inter Pipeline expects to initially generate long term annual EBITDA
of approximately $5 million when the new AOC connection enters
commercial service in early 2015. Inter Pipeline will also earn
additional EBITDA when AOC increases its diluent capacity commitments
through the phased development of the Hangingstone project. All
operating costs will be recovered on a flow through basis.
