CEO'S PERSPECTIVE

“Our strong Q1 results demonstrate the success of our diverse portfolio and our team’s dedicated focus on innovation, cost savings, and growth,” said Wouter van Kempen, chairman, president & CEO. “I am also pleased to announce we are seizing tremendous growth opportunities that further establish our leading position as a premier fully integrated midstream provider. Our significant increase of up to 1.5 billion cubic feet per day of capacity and up to 220,000 barrels per day of NGL takeaway in the DJ Basin, coupled with the expansion of Sand Hills to 485,000 barrels per day out of the Permian, give us a competitive advantage in the country’s two most prolific basins.”

GROWTH UPDATE

DJ Basin Growth Projects

  • Adding up to 1.5 Bcf/d capacity, with 500 MMcf/d coming online over the next twelve months.
    -- Announcing further acceleration of the 200 MMcf/d Mewbourn 3 plant to August 2018. 
    -- Announcing acceleration of the O'Connor 2 plant to the second quarter of 2019 and the 50 percent capacity expansion to 300 MMcf/d with up to 100 MMcf/d of bypass. 
    -- Announcing Plant 12 adding up to 1.0 Bcf/d including bypass.  The plant is expected to be placed into service in phases with the initial in-service in 2020.
  • Extending the Southern Hills pipeline into the DJ Basin via 10-year agreements for up to 50 MBbls/d transport on the White Cliffs NGL pipeline.  The initial capacity out of the DJ Basin is expected to be 90 MBbls/d, expandable to 120 MBbls/d with an anticipated fourth quarter of 2019 completion.
  • Expanding Front Range 100 MBbls/d and Texas Express 90 MBbls/d, adding NGL takeaway from the DJ Basin. Both expansions are expected to go into service in the second quarter of 2019. DCP owns 33% of Front Range and 10% of Texas Express.

Permian Growth Projects

Sand Hills

  • Completed the Sand Hills NGL pipeline expansion to 365 MBbls/d in the first quarter of 2018. Capacity was further increased to approximately 400 MBbls/d by the end of the first quarter of 2018 through innovation and operational optimization with no additional capital. Capacity is expected to increase 25 MBbls/d to 425 MBbls/d by the end of the third quarter of 2018 and then ramp up to 485 MBbls/d by the end of 2018.

Gulf Coast Express

  • The approximately 2.0 Bcf/d Gulf Coast Express (GCX) pipeline is close to fully subscribed and is expected to be placed in-service in the fourth quarter of 2019.  We hold a 25% interest in the GCX natural gas takeaway pipeline.

DISTRIBUTIONS AND IDR GIVEBACK

On April 24, 2018, DCP announced a quarterly common unit distribution of $0.78 per limited partner unit. This distribution remains unchanged from the previous quarter.

Also on April 24, 2018, DCP announced the initial semi-annual distribution on its Series A Preferred units of $41.9965 per unit, which includes the distribution attributable to the partial period from and including the date of original issue.  The Series A Preferred distribution will be paid on June 15, 2018 to unitholders of record on June 1, 2018.

DCP generated distributable cash flow of $171 million for the first quarter of 2018. In accordance with the amended partnership agreement, distributions declared were $155 million for the first quarter of 2018. The distribution coverage ratio was 1.10 times for the first quarter of 2018.

Phillips 66 and Enbridge, Inc. (Owners) have agreed, if required, to provide a reduction to incentive distributions payable to DCP's general partner under the partnership agreement (the "IDR giveback") of up to $100 million annually through 2019 to target an approximate 1.0 times annual distribution coverage ratio, which provides downside protection for limited partners.

Under the terms of DCP's amended partnership agreement, the amount of incentive distributions paid to the general partner will be evaluated by the general partner on both a quarterly and annual basis and may be reduced each quarter by an amount determined by the general partner. If no determination is made by the general partner, the quarterly IDR giveback will be $20 million. The IDR giveback of up to $100 million annually will be subject to a true-up at the end of the year by taking the total distributable cash flow (as adjusted under the amended partnership agreement), less the total annual distribution payable to unitholders, adjusted to target an approximate 1.0 times distribution coverage ratio. During the first quarter 2018 no IDR giveback was withheld from the distribution declared.

FIRST QUARTER 2018 OPERATING RESULTS BY BUSINESS SEGMENT

Gathering and Processing

Gathering and Processing Segment net income attributable to partners for the three months ended March 31, 2018 and 2017 was $113 million and $152 million, respectively.

Adjusted segment EBITDA decreased to $194 million for the three months ended March 31, 2018, from $211 million for the three months ended March 31, 2017, reflecting significantly lower production volumes from two offshore wells from DCP's Discovery equity method investment which drove lower distributions, the sale of our Douglas, Wyoming system and a producer settlement in the North in the first quarter of 2017. These decreases were partially offset by lower costs from operational efficiencies and cost savings initiatives and higher volumes in the Eagle Ford system in the South region and higher volumes from growth projects primarily related to DCP’s DJ Basin System in the North region.

Logistics and Marketing

Logistics and Marketing Segment net income attributable to partners for the three months ended March 31, 2018 and 2017 was $79 million and $87 million, respectively.

Adjusted segment EBITDA increased to $129 million for the three months ended March 31, 2018, from $92 million for the three months ended March 31, 2017, reflecting higher equity earnings and distributions from Sand Hills primarily due to continued volume ramp associated with NGL production growth from the Permian basin and ongoing capacity expansions of Sand Hills, and higher gas marketing margins. These increases were partially offset by lower realized gas and NGL marketing cash settlements related to DCP's commodity derivative program, and lower margins in our wholesale propane and NGL marketing businesses.

Other

Corporate general and administrative expense for the three months ended March 31, 2018 was lower compared to the same period in 2017 primarily as a result of cost savings initiatives.

CAPITALIZATION, LIQUIDITY AND FINANCING

Debt

As of March 31, 2018, DCP had $450 million of total principal short-term debt outstanding and $4,275 million of total principal long-term debt outstanding. The total debt outstanding includes $550 million of junior subordinated notes which are excluded from debt under DCP's credit facility leverage ratio calculation.

Credit Agreement

DCP has a $1.4 billion senior unsecured revolving credit agreement that matures on December 6, 2022, or the Credit Agreement. The Credit Agreement is used for working capital requirements and other general partnership purposes including growth and acquisitions. As of March 31, 2018, total available capacity under the Credit Agreement was $1,275 million net of $100 million of outstanding borrowings and $25 million of letters of credit. The financial covenants set forth in the Credit Agreement limit DCP's ability to incur incremental debt by $1,275 million as of March 31, 2018. DCP's leverage ratio pursuant to its Credit Agreement for the quarter ended March 31, 2018, was approximately 3.8 times. The effective interest rate on DCP's overall debt position, as of March 31, 2018, was 5.7 percent. As of March 31, 2018, DCP had cash of $2 million.

CAPITAL EXPENDITURES AND INVESTMENTS

During the three months ended March 31, 2018, DCP had expansion capital expenditures and equity investments totaling $161 million and maintenance capital expenditures totaling $23 million.

COMMODITY DERIVATIVE ACTIVITY

For the three months ended March 31, 2018 and 2017, commodity derivative activity and total revenues included non-cash unrealized losses of $29 million, and non-cash unrealized gains of $36 million, respectively. Net hedge cash settlements for the three months ended March 31, 2018 and 2017 were payments of $12 million and $5 million, respectively.

The objective of DCP's commodity risk management program is to protect downside risk in its distributable cash flow. DCP also manages commodity price risk related to its natural gas storage and pipeline assets through its commodity derivative program. The commercial activities related to DCP's natural gas storage and pipeline assets primarily consist of locking in spreads associated with the purchase and sale of gas. DCP utilizes mark-to-market accounting treatment for its commodity derivative instruments. Mark-to-market accounting rules require companies to record currently in earnings the difference between their contracted future derivative settlement prices and the forward prices of the underlying commodities at the end of the accounting period. Revaluing DCP's commodity derivative instruments based on futures pricing at the end of the period creates assets or liabilities and associated non-cash gains or losses. Realized gains or losses from cash settlement of the derivative contracts occur monthly as DCP's physical commodity sales are realized or when DCP rebalances its portfolio. Non-cash gains or losses associated with the mark-to-market accounting treatment of DCP's commodity derivative instruments do not affect its distributable cash flow.

EARNINGS CALL

The first quarter 2018 DCP earnings presentation is currently available through the Investors section of DCP's website at www.dcpmidstream.com. DCP will host a conference call webcast on Tuesday May 8, at 11:00 a.m. ET, to discuss its first quarter 2018 results.

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL INFORMATION

This press release and the accompanying financial schedules include the following non-GAAP financial measures: adjusted EBITDA, distributable cash flow, adjusted segment EBITDA, forecasted adjusted EBITDA and forecasted distributable cash flow. The accompanying schedules provide reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures. DCP's non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation or as an alternative to its financial measures presented in accordance with GAAP, including operating revenues, net income or loss attributable to partners, net cash provided by or used in operating activities or any other measure of liquidity or financial performance presented in accordance with GAAP as a measure of operating performance, liquidity or ability to service debt obligations and make cash distributions to unitholders. The non-GAAP financial measures presented by DCP may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies because they may not calculate their measures in the same manner.

DCP defines adjusted EBITDA as net income or loss attributable to partners adjusted for (i) distributions from unconsolidated affiliates, net of earnings (ii) depreciation and amortization expense, (iii) net interest expense, (iv) noncontrolling interest in depreciation and income tax expense, (v) unrealized gains and losses from commodity derivatives, (vi) income tax expense or benefit, (vii) impairment expense and (viii) certain other non-cash items. Adjusted EBITDA further excludes items of income or loss that we characterize as unrepresentative of DCP's ongoing operations. Management believes these measures provide investors meaningful insight into results from ongoing operations.

The commodity derivative non-cash losses and gains result from the marking to market of certain financial derivatives used by us for risk management purposes that we do not account for under the hedge method of accounting. These non-cash losses or gains may or may not be realized in future periods when the derivative contracts are settled, due to fluctuating commodity prices.

Adjusted EBITDA is used as a supplemental liquidity and performance measure and adjusted segment EBITDA is used as a supplemental performance measure by DCP's management and by external users of its financial statements, such as investors, commercial banks, research analysts and others to assess:

  • financial performance of DCP's assets without regard to financing methods, capital structure or historical cost basis;
  • DCP's operating performance and return on capital as compared to those of other companies in the midstream energy industry, without regard to financing methods or capital structure;
  • viability and performance of acquisitions and capital expenditure projects and the overall rates of return on investment opportunities;
  • performance of DCP's business excluding non-cash commodity derivative gains or losses; and
  • in the case of Adjusted EBITDA, the ability of DCP's assets to generate cash sufficient to pay interest costs, support its indebtedness, make cash distributions to its unitholders and general partner, and pay maintenance capital expenditures.

DCP defines adjusted segment EBITDA for each segment as segment net income or loss attributable to partners adjusted for (i) distributions from unconsolidated affiliates, net of earnings (ii) depreciation and amortization expense, (iii) net interest expense, (iv) noncontrolling interest in depreciation and income tax expense, (v) unrealized gains and losses from commodity derivatives (vi) income tax expense or benefit, (vii) impairment expense and (viii) certain other non-cash items. Adjusted EBITDA further excludes items of income or loss that we characterize as unrepresentative of our ongoing operations for that segment.

DCP defines distributable cash flow as adjusted EBITDA less maintenance capital expenditures, net of reimbursable projects, interest expense, cumulative cash distributions earned by the Series A Preferred Units and certain other items.

Maintenance capital expenditures are cash expenditures made to maintain DCP's cash flows, operating capacity or earnings capacity. These expenditures add on to or improve capital assets owned, including certain system integrity, compliance and safety improvements. Maintenance capital expenditures also include certain well connects, and may include the acquisition or construction of new capital assets. Income attributable to preferred units represent cash distributions earned by the Series A Preferred Units.  Cash distributions to be paid to the holders of the Series A Preferred units, assuming a distribution is declared by DCP's board of directors, are not available to common unit holders. Non-cash mark-to-market of derivative instruments is considered to be non-cash for the purpose of computing distributable cash flow because settlement will not occur until future periods, and will be impacted by future changes in commodity prices and interest rates. DCP compares the distributable cash flow it generates to the cash distributions it expects to pay to its partners. Using this metric, DCP computes its distribution coverage ratio. Distributable cash flow is used as a supplemental liquidity and performance measure by DCP's management and by external users of its financial statements, such as investors, commercial banks, research analysts and others, to assess DCP's ability to make cash distributions to its unitholders and its general partner.
