    Summit Midstream Partners, LP Reports Second Quarter 2014 Financial &                               Operating Results  PR Newswire  DALLAS, Aug. 7, 2014  DALLAS, Aug. 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --Summit Midstream Partners, LP (NYSE: SMLP) today announced financial and operating results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014. SMLP reported adjusted EBITDA of $48.0 million and adjusted distributable cash flow of $34.7 million for the second quarter of 2014, an increase of 30.5% and 14.6%, respectively, over the second quarter of 2013. SMLP reported $4.0 million of net income for the second quarter of 2014 compared to $8.8 million for the second quarter of 2013. Volume throughput on SMLP's assets averaged 1,403 million cubic feet per day ("MMcf/d") in the second quarter of 2014, an increase of 32.4% over 1,060 MMcf/d in the second quarter of 2013.  Summit Midstream Partners Logo.  For the six months ended June 30, 2014, SMLP reported adjusted EBITDA of $94.6 million, an increase of $21.0 million, or 28.5%, over the comparable period in 2013. Adjusted distributable cash flow totaled $69.0 million for the first six months of 2014, an increase of $6.3 million, or 10.1%, over the comparable period in 2013. Net income totaled $10.4 million for the first six months of 2014 compared to $22.6 million in the comparable period in 2013. Volume throughput averaged 1,356 MMcf/d for the six months ended June 30, 2014, an increase of 26.1% over the comparable period in 2013.  Steve Newby, President and Chief Executive Officer of SMLP commented, "The second quarter was another record quarter for Summit with volume throughput averaging 1.4 Bcf/d, an increase of more than 32% over the second quarter of 2013. Importantly, each of our operating systems experienced sequential quarterly volume growth led by the continued ramp up of our Mountaineer System in the core of the Marcellus Shale. Our Red Rock system, which we acquired from Summit Investments in the first quarter of 2014, is outperforming our expectations. We are particularly encouraged by the level of producer activity around our DFW Midstream system which we expect will drive additional growth in the near term. Additionally, our team successfully resolved the operating issues on our Bison Midstream system during the quarter, which resulted in volume throughput growth of more than 26% over the first quarter of 2014."  "Our strong second quarter financial results, together with our long-term growth outlook, enabled us to deliver our seventh consecutive quarterly distribution increase to unitholders, growing distributions per unit by 19.5% over the second quarter of 2013 and 4.0% over the first quarter of 2014. Our inventory of assets under development at Summit Investments continues to grow with over $300 million of new Bakken Shale projects previously announced in the second quarter of 2014. Given the strategic position of Summit Investments' assets, which are located in some of the most attractive basins in the United States, we expect to continue to generate new organic development opportunities, which we believe will further enhance SMLP's long-term growth visibility."  Financial and operating results for the six months ended June 30, 2014 benefitted from SMLP's June 2013 acquisition of Mountaineer Midstream Company, LLC ("Mountaineer Midstream"), which was acquired from an affiliate of MarkWest Energy Partners, L.P. ("MarkWest").  SMLP's financial and operating results retrospectively include financial and operating results from Bison Midstream since February 16, 2013, and from the Red Rock system since October 23, 2012, the date that each was originally acquired by Summit Investments.  Volume throughput on the Mountaineer Midstream system averaged 366 MMcf/d in the second quarter of 2014, up 28.1% over the first quarter of 2014 due to a continuation of active drilling by our anchor customer, Antero Resources Corp. ("Antero"). We are currently in the process of expanding throughput capacity on the Mountaineer Midstream system to 1,050 MMcf/d to support Antero's current and future anticipated drilling activities. The revenues associated with the incremental volume throughput will be driven by higher pressure natural gas gathering services. Volumes are expected to continue to grow on this system throughout the balance of 2014 as new Antero wells are connected by third parties upstream of our system and as processing capacity at MarkWest's Sherwood Processing Complex increases from 600 MMcf/d currently, to 1.4 billion cubic feet per day ("Bcf/d") by the third quarter of 2015.  Volume throughput on the Bison Midstream system averaged 15 MMcf/d in the second quarter of 2014, up 26.2% over the first quarter of 2014, but down 8.1% over the second quarter of 2013. Volume throughput on the Bison Midstream system grew continuously during the second quarter of 2014 increasing from approximately 14 MMcf/d in April to approximately 19 MMcf/d in June. The extreme winter weather and operational issues that negatively impacted volume throughput on the Bison Midstream system since the third quarter of 2013 were resolved in the second quarter of 2014. We expect volume growth to continue throughout the second half of 2014 as we continue to connect new pad sites and expand the system's compression capacity. We currently have four compressor expansion projects underway on the Bison Midstream system including the construction of two new compressor stations to support producer activity.  Volume throughput on the DFW Midstream system averaged 350 MMcf/d in the second quarter of 2014, up 0.6% from the first quarter of 2014, but down 11.5% from the second quarter of 2013. This is the first time since the first quarter of 2013 that DFW Midstream has experienced sequential quarterly volume growth. Volume growth resulted from several customers bringing new wells online early in the second quarter of 2014. The new incremental volume throughput offset both the natural decline of existing wells on the system and the continuation from several customers to temporarily shut-in pad sites to drill or complete new wells. Given current drilling activity and producer plans in our service area, DFW Midstream volume throughput is expected to continue to increase throughout the second half of 2014.  In July 2014, SMLP executed an agreement with an affiliate of Energy Spectrum Capital to acquire Texas Energy Midstream, L.P. ("TEM") for approximately $11.0 million. TEM is a natural gas gathering system with approximately 13 MMcf/d of current throughput from two customers that are developing acreage in Mansfield, TX, adjacent to the southern border of the DFW Midstream service area. The acquisition is expected to close by the end of the third quarter of 2014.  Volume throughput on the Grand River system averaged 672 MMcf/d in the second quarter of 2014, 1.4% over the first quarter of 2014, and 5.6% over the second quarter of 2013. Volume throughput increased in the second quarter of 2014 primarily due to growing volumes from the Red Rock system, which was favorably impacted by new pad site connections for WPX Energy, Inc., and Ursa Resources Group II, and the March 2014 start-up of the 20 MMcf/d cryogenic processing plant for Black Hills Corporation to process liquids-rich Mancos/Niobrara gas. Volume throughput on the legacy Grand River system totaled 464 MMcf/d in the second quarter of 2014, down 4.7% over the first quarter of 2014, and resulted from our anchor customer, Encana Corp.'s, temporary suspension of drilling activities in the Piceance Basin in 2014.  The Grand River system continues to benefit from its natural gas gathering agreements, which include minimum volume commitments ("MVCs") that increase in both rate and volume commitment over the next few years, and largely mitigate the financial impact associated with declining volumes from certain customers. Lower volume throughput from certain Grand River customers during the second quarter of 2014 translated into larger MVC shortfall payments, thereby minimizing the impact on adjusted EBITDA.

For the     period of SMLP's ownership in 2013, average throughput was 120 MMcf/d.     Bison Midstream was acquired from an affiliate of Summit Investments in (2) June 2013 and includes results for all periods in which common control     existed, beginning in February 2013.     Includes Red Rock volume throughput. The Red Rock assets were acquired by     Grand River Gathering from an affiliate of Summit Investment in March (3) 2014, and the Grand River system includes the financial and operational     results associated with the Red Rock assets for all periods during which     common control existed, beginning in October 2012.  MVC Shortfall Payments Adjusted EBITDA in the second quarter of 2014 was positively impacted by $12.9 million of adjustments associated with the MVC mechanisms in SMLP's gathering agreements. Of the $12.9 million adjustment, $6.3 million was related to changes in deferred revenue and $6.6 million was related to MVC shortfall payment adjustments.

Of the MVC shortfall payments, $6.3 million was recorded as deferred revenue on SMLP's balance sheet because these customers have the ability to use these MVC shortfall payments to offset gathering fees related to future throughput in excess of future period MVCs. MVC shortfall payment adjustments in the second quarter of 2014 totaled $5.8 million and included adjustments related to future anticipated shortfall payments from certain customers on the Grand River, Bison Midstream and DFW Midstream systems.  Certain of our gas gathering agreements do not have credit banking mechanisms and as such, the MVC shortfall payments from these customers are accounted for as gathering revenue in the period that it is earned. For the second quarter of 2014, we recognized $0.8 million of gathering revenue associated with MVC shortfall payments from certain customers on the Mountaineer Midstream, DFW Midstream and Grand River systems.  Capital Expenditures For the three months ended June 30, 2014, SMLP recorded total capital expenditures of $23.2 million, which included approximately $4.8 million of maintenance capital expenditures. Development activities during the second quarter of 2014 were related primarily to the construction of various pipeline and compressor expansion projects across our gathering systems to facilitate future expected volume throughput growth.  SMLP continued its development of the Zinnia Loop project during the second quarter of 2014, which accounted for the majority of growth capex in the second quarter of 2014. Activity is also underway to increase the number of pad site connections and expand gathering capacity at Bison Midstream from 26 MMcf/d currently, to 32 MMcf/d by the end of the first quarter of 2015.  Capital & Liquidity As of June 30, 2014, SMLP had total liquidity (cash plus undrawn borrowing capacity under its $700.0 million revolving credit facility) of $297.4 million. Based upon the terms of SMLP's revolving credit facility and total outstanding debt of $726.0 million, total leverage (net debt divided by EBITDA) was approximately 3.9 to 1 as of June 30, 2014.  On July 15, 2014, SMLP's wholly owned subsidiary, Summit Midstream Holdings, LLC, closed a $300.0 million offering of senior unsecured notes due in 2022, which priced at par to yield 5.50%. The net proceeds from the senior notes offering were used to repay borrowings under SMLP's $700.0 million revolving credit facility.   2014 SMLP Financial Guidance SMLP is reaffirming its 2014 adjusted EBITDA guidance of $190.0 million to $210.0 million. SMLP continues to expect to pay a distribution for the fourth quarter of 2014 that is 15.0% to 20.0% over the $0.48 per unit distribution paid for the fourth quarter of 2013. Given the pending TEM acquisition and the decision to further expand compression capacity on the Bison Midstream system, SMLP is increasing its 2014 capital expenditure guidance from $100.0 million to $115.0 million to $125.0 million to $135.0 million, including $15.0 to $20.0 million of maintenance capital expenditures.  SMLP's 2014 financial guidance excludes the effect of any other acquisitions or potential drop down transactions from Summit Investments.  Quarterly Distribution On July 24, 2014, the board of directors of SMLP's general partner declared a quarterly cash distribution of $0.52 per unit on all outstanding common and subordinated units, or $2.08 per unit on an annualized basis, for the quarter ended June 30, 2014. This distribution will be paid on August 14, 2014 to unitholders of record as of the close of business on August 7, 2014.  This is SMLP's seventh consecutive quarterly per unit distribution increase. It represents an increase of $0.085 per unit, or 19.5%, over the distribution paid for the second quarter of 2014 and an increase of $0.02 per unit, or 4.0%, over the distribution paid for the first quarter of 2014.

These unusual and non-recurring expenses are     settled in cash.     The amortization of favorable and unfavorable contracts relates to gas     gathering agreements that were deemed to be above or below market at the (2) acquisition of the DFW Midstream system. We amortize these contracts on a     units-of-production basis over the life of the applicable contract. The     life of the contract is the period over which the contract is expected to     contribute directly or indirectly to our future cash flows.     Adjustments related to MVC shortfall payments account for (i) the net (3) increases or decreases in deferred revenue for MVC shortfall payments and     (ii) our inclusion of future expected annual MVC shortfall payments.     Senior notes interest represents the net of interest expense accrued and (4) paid during the period. Interest on the $300.0 million 7.5% senior notes     due 2021 is paid in cash semi-annually in arrears on January 1 and July 1     until maturity in July 2021.
