DALLAS -- May 6, 2014

Energy Transfer Partners, L.P. (NYSE: ETP) announced today that Houston Pipe
Line Company LP (“HPL”) and Oasis Pipeline, LP (both wholly owned subsidiaries
of ETP), have entered into 15-year agreements with Comisión Federal De
Electricidad (“CFE”), the Mexican agency handling Mexico’s electric power
needs, to provide transportation services for 930,000 MMBtu of natural gas per
day.

To facilitate these agreements, ETP will utilize its existing pipeline
infrastructure and will construct a new 24-inch pipeline from HPL's pipeline
located near Edinburg, Texas to a new international border crossing near
McAllen, Texas (“Edinburg Extension”). Additionally, ETP will construct
approximately 51 miles of 36-inch pipe extending from its Robstown pipeline
system in Nueces County, Texas to its facilities located in Live Oak County,
Texas (“Nueces Crossover”). The Edinburgh Extension and Nueces Crossover are
anticipated to be in service during the fourth quarter of this year and first
quarter of 2015, respectively.

“We are honored to team with CFE to help them meet the growing demand for
natural gas-fired generation in Mexico,” said Roy Patton, Senior Vice
President of Commercial Operations for ETP. “ETP’s extensive intrastate
pipeline system provides CFE with geographical diversity and flexibility in
sourcing its natural gas supplies. In addition to supporting new pipeline
infrastructure, these agreements will generate upstream fee-based revenue for
ETP’s existing intrastate pipeline network.”
