A copy of the press release is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.
The information set forth in this Item 7.01 includes forward-looking statements. All statements, other than statements of historical facts, included in this Item 7.01 that address activities, events or developments that the Partnership expects, believes or anticipates will or may occur in the future are forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements are based on certain assumptions made by the Partnership in reliance on its experience and perception of historical trends, current conditions, expected future developments and other factors the Partnership believes are appropriate under the circumstances. Such statements are inherently uncertain and are subject to a number of risks, many of which are beyond the Partnerships control. Should one or more of these risks or uncertainties occur, or should underlying assumptions prove incorrect, the Partnerships actual results and plans could differ materially from those implied or expressed by any forward-looking statement.
The Partnership undertakes no obligation to publicly update any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information or future events. For a detailed list of the Partnerships risk factors and other cautionary statements, including without limitation risks related to the production, gathering, processing, marketing, and trading of natural gas and natural gas liquids, please consult the Partnerships Annual Report on Form 10-K, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission for the year ended December 31, 2011, as well as any other public filings and press releases.
