HOUSTON & TULSA -- December 20, 2013

Kinder Morgan Crude and Condensate LLC (KMCC) and Double Eagle Pipeline LLC, a
50/50 joint venture between Magellan Midstream Partners, L.P. (NYSE: MMP) and
Kinder Morgan Energy Partners, L.P. (NYSE: KMP), today announced that they
have entered into a long-term agreement with Anadarko Petroleum Corporation
(NYSE: APC) to transport Eagle Ford Shale production from Gardendale, Texas,
in LaSalle County, to the Houston Ship Channel via the KMCC Pipeline. Double
Eagle will construct 160,000 barrels of storage capacity and a pump station at
Gardendale in addition to building an approximately 10-mile pipeline to
connect the Double Eagle Pipeline and the KMCC Pipeline in Karnes County,
Texas. Double Eagle will transport product from its new Gardendale station to
the KMCC Helena station in Karnes County. KMCC will construct 240,000 barrels
of storage at its Helena Station to move crude and condensate from the Double
Eagle Pipeline to the KMCC delivery points. Double Eagle and KMCC expect to
complete construction of these facilities in early 2015 to move production to
the Houston Ship Channel.

“We believe connecting the Double Eagle and KMCC systems will offer unique
flexibility for Anadarko and other Eagle Ford producers to access both the
Corpus Christi and Houston-area markets,” said Don Lindley, president of
Natural Gas Liquids for KMP, regarding the approximately $45 million Kinder
Morgan investment. The transaction is expected to be immediately accretive to
cash distributable to MMP and KMP unitholders upon the project’s completion.

“We are pleased that customer demand on the Double Eagle system is continuing
to grow,” said Michael Mears, Magellan’s chief executive officer. “The
increased connectivity for the Double Eagle system is in direct response to
our customers’ desire to more efficiently supply additional condensate barrels
to the Houston Ship Channel.”

The Double Eagle Pipeline includes 140 miles of new 12-inch pipeline
connecting to an existing 50-mile, 14- and 16-inch pipeline segment owned by
Kinder Morgan extending from Three Rivers, Texas, to Magellan’s marine and
storage terminal in Corpus Christi, Texas. The initial capacity of the
pipeline is 100,000 barrels per day, but can be expanded with additional
pumps.
