On December 6, 2012, DCP Midstream Partners, LP (the “Partnership”) issued a joint press release with DCP Midstream, LLC (“Midstream”), the owner of the Partnership’s general partner, announcing the construction of a new cryogenic plant that will serve the Eagle Ford shale (the “Goliad Plant”). The Goliad Plant will be constructed and funded by the previously announced Eagle Ford Joint Venture, formed on November 1, 2012, which is owned two-thirds by Midstream and one-third by the Partnership. The Partnership’s investment in the project will be approximately $95 million which includes the new Goliad Plant, a gathering system feeding the plant and ancillary support facilities including compression, liquids handling and residue pipeline interconnect facilities. Midstream also will provide the Partnership with a two-year direct commodity price hedge for the Partnership’s one-third interest in the project.
