Recent Updates

150,000 barrels of operational storage. The pipeline will expand northeast
from the current WOT, connecting Noble Energy's East Pony processing
facilities in the northeast part of the DJ Basin. Rose Rock Midstream will
continue to operate the pipeline and deliver to its Platteville Station, the

Noble Energy has entered into a long-term agreement to use the asset. The
project is expected to be operational in the fourth quarter of 2014.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Adjusted EBITDA is not a generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP)
measure and is not intended to be used in lieu of a GAAP presentation of net
income/loss. Adjusted EBITDA is presented in this Press Release because
SemGroup believes it provides additional information with respect to its
performance. Adjusted EBITDA represents earnings before interest, taxes,
depreciation and amortization, adjusted for selected items that SemGroup
believes impact the comparability of financial results between reporting
periods. Although SemGroup presents selected items that it considers in
evaluating its performance, you should also be aware that the items presented
do not represent all items that affect comparability between the periods
presented. Variations in SemGroup's operating results are also caused by
changes in volumes, prices, exchange rates, mechanical interruptions and
numerous other factors. These types of variances are not separately identified
in this Press Release. Because all companies do not use identical
calculations, SemGroup's presentation of Adjusted EBITDA may be different from
similarly titled measures of other companies, thereby diminishing its utility.
Reconciliations of net income (loss) to Adjusted EBITDA for the periods
presented are included in the tables at the end of this Press Release.
