07 Nov, 2013, 16:19 ET from Summit Midstream Partners, LP

DALLAS, Nov. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Summit Midstream Partners, LP (NYSE: SMLP) today announced financial and operating results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2013.  SMLP reported adjusted EBITDA of $39.1 million for the third quarter 2013, an increase of $16.0 million, or 69.1%, over the third quarter of 2012.  Adjusted distributable cash flow totaled $28.0 million for the third quarter of 2013, an increase of $6.1 million, or 27.8% over the third quarter of 2012.  SMLP reported $6.7 million of net income for the third quarter of 2013 compared to $7.4 million in the third quarter of 2012.  Volume throughput on SMLP's gathering assets averaged 1,022 million cubic feet per day ("MMcf/d") in the third quarter of 2013 compared to 958 MMcf/d in the third quarter of 2012.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2013, SMLP reported adjusted EBITDA of $106.5 million, an increase of $31.8 million, or 42.6%, over the comparable period in 2012.  Adjusted distributable cash flow totaled $86.0 million in the first nine months of 2013, an increase of $19.9 million, or 30.1% over the comparable period in 2012.  Net income totaled $27.3 million in first nine months of 2013, an increase of $3.2 million, or 13.2%, over the comparable period in 2012.  Volume throughput averaged 964 MMcf/d for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 compared to 928 MMcf/d for the comparable period in 2012.

Financial results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2013 primarily benefitted from the June 2013 acquisitions of (i) Bison Midstream, which was dropped down from an affiliate of Summit Midstream Partners, LLC ("Summit Investments") and (ii) Mountaineer Midstream, which was acquired from an affiliate of MarkWest Energy Partners, L.P. ("MarkWest").  Financial results in the third quarter also benefitted from the new natural gas purchase agreement with Aux Sable Midstream, LLC which became effective in August 2013 and provides for long-term access to natural gas processing capacity and improved processing economics for Bison Midstream and its customers.

SMLP also announced today the amendment of its natural gas gathering agreement with Antero Resources Corporation ("Antero") related to SMLP's development of a new high-pressure pipeline looping project designed to expand throughput capacity at Mountaineer Midstream to 1,050 MMcf/d (the "Zinnia Loop").  The Zinnia Loop will support an incremental 500 MMcf/d of volume throughput and will accommodate higher expected natural gas production from Antero, Mountaineer Midstream's anchor customer.  The need for the Zinnia Loop is driven by Antero's drilling program around Mountaineer Midstream's gathering footprint in western Harrison and Doddridge counties in West Virginia.  With this expansion, Mountaineer Midstream will enhance its strategic position as a primary source of natural gas deliveries to MarkWest's Sherwood Gas Processing Complex ("Sherwood"), which is located in the liquids-rich natural gas window of the Marcellus Shale Play.

Steve Newby, President and Chief Executive Officer of SMLP commented, "SMLP delivered another solid quarter of financial results.  Our third quarter financial results, coupled with our outlook for the business over the long-term, allowed us to increase the third quarter 2013 distribution to $0.46 per unit, a 5.75% increase over the second quarter of 2013.  We have now increased our distribution 15.0% over our minimum quarterly distribution since going public in October of 2012, while maintaining a coverage ratio of 1.23x for the nine months ended September 30, 2013."  

"We are also very excited about expanding our relationship with Antero in the Marcellus.  Antero is a premier operator and first class customer and we are grateful for their confidence in choosing SMLP to expand this strategically important pipeline serving MarkWest's growing Sherwood Processing Complex.  The expansion will nearly double our existing throughput capacity on Mountaineer Midstream." 

Financial Guidance SMLP today reaffirmed its 2013 adjusted EBITDA financial guidance of $140.0 million to $150.0 million and the expectation that it will pay a distribution to its limited partners for the fourth quarter of 2013 that is 18.0% to 22.0% over its minimum quarterly distribution, or MQD, of $0.40 per unit.

In addition, SMLP announced its 2014 adjusted EBITDA financial guidance of $170.0 million to $180.0 million.  SMLP expects to pay a distribution for the fourth quarter of 2014 that is 10.0% to 12.0% over the expected distribution to be paid for the fourth quarter of 2013. The 2014 financial guidance excludes the effect of any potential asset drop downs from the ultimate owner of SMLP's general partner, Summit Investments. 

DFW Midstream Volume throughput on the DFW Midstream system averaged 381 MMcf/d in the third quarter of 2013 compared to 380 MMcf/d in the third quarter of 2012 and 395 MMcf/d in the second quarter of 2013.  Volume declines from the second quarter of 2013 to the third quarter of 2013 primarily resulted from multiple customers continuing to temporarily shut-in several pad sites throughout the quarter to drill and/or complete new wells.  While this activity is beneficial over the long term, it can create volume and cash flow volatility on a sequential quarter basis.  Volume throughput was also impacted by SMLP's annual two day shut-down of the DFW Midstream system in September.  This shut-down was necessary to execute the required regulatory testing and impacted volume throughput by approximately 5 MMcf/d during the third quarter. 

Grand River Gathering Volume throughput on the Grand River system averaged 489 MMcf/d in the third quarter of 2013 compared to 578 MMcf/d in the third quarter of 2012 and 494 MMcf/d in the second quarter of 2013.  The Grand River gathering agreements include minimum volume commitments ("MVC") which largely mitigate the financial impact associated with declining volumes.  As a result, the lower volume throughput at Grand River during the third quarter of 2013 primarily translated into larger MVC shortfall payments thereby minimizing the impact on adjusted EBITDA.  In the aggregate, these MVCs increase annually over the next several years.  

Bison Midstream Volume throughput on the Bison Midstream system averaged 17 MMcf/d in the third quarter of 2013 and in the second quarter of 2013.  Flat volume throughput during the quarter was attributable to temporary operational interruptions across the system due to increased levels of produced water in the pipelines.  These operational issues are being remediated and are expected to be resolved in the near term.  In addition, temporary interruptions occurred throughout the quarter as SMLP continued to install new compression assets designed to increase throughput capacity.  Since acquiring Bison Midstream from an affiliate of Summit Investments in February 2013, SMLP has connected 18 new pad sites to the Bison Midstream system through September 30, 2013 as a high level of drilling activity continues to occur across the system.

Mountaineer Midstream Volume throughput on the Mountaineer Midstream system averaged 135 MMcf/d in the third quarter of 2013, up 1.5% over the second quarter 2013.  Volume throughput growth was muted in the third quarter of 2013 as a result of temporary processing capacity curtailments at Sherwood beginning in August 2013.  The processing curtailments resulted from a line break on one of MarkWest's NGL pipelines downstream of Sherwood which forced Mountaineer Midstream to curtail its natural gas deliveries to Sherwood.  MarkWest immediately commenced repairs and remediation of the impacted areas of the NGL pipeline and that line was returned to service in mid-October 2013.  Volume throughput at Mountaineer Midstream is now higher than pre-curtailment levels and is expected to grow in sync with planned processing capacity expansions currently underway at Sherwood.

SMLP amended its fee-based natural gas gathering agreement with Antero whereby SMLP will construct approximately 9 miles of high-pressure, 20-inch pipeline on the Mountaineer Midstream system in order to accommodate higher expected volume throughput from Antero.  The Zinnia Loop will increase Mountaineer Midstream's throughput capacity from 550 MMcf/d to 1,050 MMcf/d.  The project is underpinned by a new minimum revenue commitment from Antero which has over 12 years remaining on the contract.  SMLP has already commenced work on the project with an expected in service date of third quarter of 2014.  The total cost of the project is approximately $24 million.

MVC Shortfall Payments Adjusted EBITDA in the third quarter of 2013 was positively impacted by $7.7 million related to EBITDA adjustments associated with the MVC mechanisms in SMLP's gathering agreements. Of the $7.7 million adjustment, (i) $4.5 million was related to MVC shortfall payments, and (ii) $3.2 million was related to the change in deferred revenue.

SMLP billed its customers $3.2 million of MVC shortfalls in the third quarter of 2013 due to lower actual volume throughput than the minimum volume that the applicable shippers were contractually required to ship under their gas gathering agreements.  All $3.2 million of the quarterly MVC shortfall payments have been recorded as deferred revenue on SMLP's balance sheet because these customers have the ability to use these MVC shortfall payments as a credit to offset future gathering fees related to throughput in excess of future period MVCs. 

MVC shortfall payment adjustments in the third quarter of 2013 totaled $4.5 million and included adjustments related to future anticipated shortfall payments from certain Grand River, Bison Midstream and DFW Midstream customers.

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 earned.  For the third quarter of 2013, Mountaineer Midstream recognized $1.5 million of gathering revenue associated with MVC shortfall payments and Grand River recognized $0.2 million of gathering revenue associated with MVC shortfall payments.

Capital Expenditures For the quarter ended September 30, 2013, SMLP recorded total capital expenditures of $20.7 million, including approximately $3.0 million of maintenance capital expenditures.  Development activities during the third quarter of 2013 were primarily related to pipeline construction projects to connect new receipt points on the Bison Midstream and DFW Midstream systems and to expand compression capacity on the Bison Midstream system.  SMLP also began construction on a new 150 gallon per minute natural gas treating facility on the DFW Midstream system, which is expected to be in service in the first quarter of 2014. 

Capital & Liquidity As of September 30, 2013, SMLP had total liquidity (cash plus available borrowing capacity under its $600.0 million revolving credit facility) of $350.3 million.  Based upon the terms of SMLP's revolving credit facility and total outstanding debt of $565.1 million, total leverage (net debt divided by EBITDA) was approximately 3.9:1 as of September 30, 2013.

On November 1, 2013, SMLP's wholly owned subsidiary, Summit Midstream Holdings, LLC, amended and restated its revolving credit facility.  The facility was increased from $600.0 million to $700.0 million, the maturity date was extended from May 2016 to November 2018 and the leverage-based pricing grid was reduced by 0.75% to a new range of 1.75% to 2.75%.  Pro forma for the effectiveness of this new credit facility, SMLP's available liquidity at September 30, 2013 would have been $450.3 million

Quarterly Distribution On October 24, 2013, the board of directors of SMLP's general partner declared a quarterly cash distribution of $0.46 per unit on all outstanding common and subordinated units, or $1.84 per unit on an annualized basis, for the quarter ended September 30, 2013.  This distribution will be paid on November 14, 2013 to unitholders of record as of the close of business on November 7, 2013. This is SMLP's fourth consecutive quarterly distribution increase over its minimum quarterly distribution since completing its IPO in October 2012 and represents an increase of $0.025 per unit, or 5.75%, over the $0.435 per unit distribution paid for the quarter ended June 30, 2013 and a 15.0% increase over its minimum quarterly distribution.
