"We remain the top processor in these plays with more than double the processing capacity of our closest peer."

OKLAHOMA CITY--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Enable Midstream Partners, LP (NYSE: ENBL) today announced financial results for second quarter 2016 and that the board of directors of its general partner declared quarterly cash distributions for the quarter ended June 30, 2016.

Net income attributable to limited partners was $39 million for second quarter 2016, a decrease of $38 million, or 49 percent, compared to $77 million for second quarter 2015. The decrease in net income attributable to limited partners was primarily a result of losses attributable to changes in the fair value of commodity derivatives related to Enable's hedging program, lower commodity prices in the quarter, lower natural gas volumes sold and higher depreciation and amortization expense. The decrease in net income attributable to limited partners was partially offset by lower operation and maintenance and general and administrative expenses as a result of on-going cost reduction efforts.

Enable uses derivatives to manage the partnership’s commodity price risk, and the changes associated with the fair value of these derivatives are recognized in current earnings. Enable’s net income includes $39 million related to losses associated with the change in the fair value of the commodity derivatives for second quarter 2016, a decrease of $29 million compared to $10 million for second quarter 2015. The effect of the change in the fair value of the partnership’s commodity derivatives is non-cash and is therefore excluded from Adjusted EBITDA and distributable cash flow (DCF).

Net cash provided by operating activities was $172 million for second quarter 2016, an increase of $76 million compared to $96 million for second quarter 2015. The increase in net cash provided by operating activities was primarily a result of a change in working capital.

Adjusted EBITDA for second quarter 2016 was $196 million, a decrease of $4 million, or 2 percent, compared to $200 million for second quarter 2015. The reduction in Adjusted EBITDA is primarily a result of lower commodity prices, lower natural gas volumes sold and lower distributions from SESH, partially offset by lower operation and maintenance and general and administrative expenses.

DCF for second quarter 2016 was $144 million, an increase of $5 million, or 4 percent, compared to $139 million for second quarter 2015. The increase in DCF is primarily a result of lower maintenance capital expenditures due to lower information technology and pipe replacement spend, partially offset by lower Adjusted EBITDA and the cash distributions for the Series A Preferred Units.

Adjusted EBITDA and DCF are non-GAAP financial measures and this press release provides a reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures.

MANAGEMENT PERSPECTIVE

“We boosted our market-leading position in the SCOOP and STACK plays with the completion of our Bradley II Plant which doubles our processing capacity at our Bradley Processing Complex,” said Enable Midstream President and CEO Rod Sailor. “We remain the top processor in these plays with more than double the processing capacity of our closest peer.”

“Achieving a distribution coverage ratio of 1.18x for the first six months of 2016 is a significant accomplishment driven by efficient capital deployment and continued cost management. With solid performance in each of the first two quarters, Enable remains on target to achieve its 2016 objectives.”

PARTNERSHIP QUARTERLY DISTRIBUTIONS

The board of directors of Enable's general partner declared a quarterly cash distribution of $0.318 per unit on all outstanding common and subordinated units for the quarter ended June 30, 2016. The distribution is unchanged from the previous quarter and represents an increase of approximately 0.6 percent from the partnership's second quarter 2015 distribution. The quarterly cash distribution of $0.318 per unit on all outstanding common and subordinated units will be paid August 23, 2016, to unitholders of record at the close of business on August 16, 2016.

The board of directors of the partnership's general partner also declared a quarterly cash distribution of $0.625 on all Series A Preferred Units for the quarter ended June 30, 2016. The quarterly cash distribution of $0.625 on all Series A Preferred Units outstanding will be paid on August 12, 2016, to unitholders of record at the close of business on August 2, 2016.

BUSINESS HIGHLIGHTS

In the gathering and processing segment, producers remain active in the SCOOP and STACK plays where there were 22 rigs drilling wells contractually dedicated to Enable's gas gathering and processing systems as of July 26, 2016. In addition, there were five rigs drilling wells contractually dedicated to Enable's gas gathering and processing systems in the Ark-La-Tex basin. In the Williston basin, two rigs were drilling wells contractually dedicated to Enable's crude gathering systems.

Enable previously announced the completion of the Bradley II Plant, a 200 million cubic feet per day (MMcf/d) natural gas processing plant located at the Bradley Processing Complex in Grady County, Oklahoma, which further supports producer volume growth in the SCOOP and STACK plays as well as other plays in the Anadarko basin. Enable now has a total processing capacity of approximately 1.9 Bcf/d in the Anadarko basin, including the 1.7 Bcf/d super-header processing system. In addition, Enable added 5,520 horsepower of compression in the SCOOP and 16,560 horsepower of compression in the STACK during the second quarter of 2016.

The transportation and storage segment continues to represent over 40 percent of Enable's gross margin with significant, fee-based revenues and continues to provide shippers with the ability to access almost every major consuming market east of the Mississippi River through its Perryville Hub and associated trading points. The transportation and storage segment also remains well-positioned to facilitate natural gas demand growth in the Mid-continent, Gulf Coast and Southeast regions, including providing interstate and intrastate transportation services for the new Bradley II Plant.

In the second quarter of 2016, Enable announced a Distribution Reinvestment Plan, which offers owners of Enable's common and subordinated units the ability to purchase additional common units by reinvesting all or a portion of the cash distributions paid to them on their common or subordinated units. It will begin with the quarterly distribution for the quarter ending September 30, 2016.

KEY OPERATING STATISTICS

Natural gas gathered volumes were 3.10 trillion British thermal units per day (TBtu/d) for second quarter 2016, a decrease of 3 percent compared to 3.19 TBtu/d for second quarter 2015. The decrease was due primarily to lower gathered volumes in the Ark-La-Tex and Arkoma basins as a result of gas production declines.

Natural gas processed volumes were 1.76 TBtu/d for second quarter 2016, a decrease of 4 percent compared to 1.84 TBtu/d for second quarter 2015. The decrease was due primarily to lower processed volumes in the Ark-La-Tex basin as a result of gas production declines. The decrease was partially offset by processed volume growth in the Anadarko basin, including growth from the liquids-rich SCOOP and STACK plays. The second quarter 2016 gathered and processed volumes in the Anadarko basin were impacted by customer curtailments of flowing volumes due to depressed commodity prices. With improved commodity pricing, these volumes are no longer curtailed and are flowing to Enable's gathering systems.

Gross NGL production was 83.09 MBbl/d for second quarter 2016, an increase of 12 percent compared to 74.19 MBbl/d for second quarter 2015. The increase was primarily related to increased rich gas production in the Anadarko basin.

Crude oil gathered volumes were 25.52 thousand barrels per day (MBbl/d) for second quarter 2016, an increase of 16.52 MBbl/d compared to second quarter 2015. The increase was driven by the connection of new wells to Enable's Bear Den and Nesson crude oil gathering systems.

Interstate transportation firm contracted capacity was 6.95 Bcf/d for second quarter 2016, a decrease of 4 percent compared to 7.22 Bcf/d for second quarter 2015. The decrease was primarily related to contract expirations for off-system deliveries on the EGT interstate pipeline.

Intrastate transportation average deliveries were 1.72 TBtu/d for second quarter 2016, a decrease of 6 percent compared to 1.83 TBtu/d for second quarter 2015. The decrease was due in part to the completion of EGT's Bradley Lateral in the fourth quarter of 2015 that is now transporting volumes that were previously transported by Enable's intrastate transmission system.

SECOND QUARTER FINANCIAL PERFORMANCE

Revenues were $529 million for second quarter 2016, a decrease of $61 million compared to $590 million for second quarter 2015.

  • Gathering and processing segment revenues were $387 million for second quarter 2016, a decrease of $35 million compared to $422 million for second quarter 2015. The decrease in gathering and processing segment revenues was primarily due lower gathered volumes, lower natural gas prices and losses attributable to changes in the fair value of condensate and NGL derivatives.
  • Transportation and storage segment revenues were $225 million for second quarter 2016, a decrease of $43 million compared to $268 million for second quarter 2015. The decrease in transportation and storage segment revenues was primarily due to losses attributable to changes in the fair value of natural gas derivatives and lower natural gas sales associated with lower sales volumes and lower average sales price.

Gross margin was $275 million for second quarter 2016, a decrease of $38 million compared to $313 million for second quarter 2015.

  • Gathering and processing segment gross margin was $156 million for second quarter 2016, a decrease of $25 million compared to $181 million for second quarter 2015. The decrease in gathering and processing segment margin was primarily related to losses attributable to changes in fair value of condensate and NGL derivatives, lower processed volumes and lower NGL prices. These decreases were partially offset by higher processed volumes in the Anadarko basin and higher crude oil gathered volumes in the Williston basin.
  • Transportation and storage segment gross margin was $119 million for second quarter 2016, a decrease of $14 million compared to $133 million for second quarter 2015. The decrease in transportation and storage segment gross margin was primarily related to losses attributable to changes in the fair value of natural gas derivatives and lower firm transportation revenues. These decreases were partially offset by an increase in gains on system optimization activities and higher margin on transportation services for local distribution companies.

Operation and maintenance and general and administrative expenses were $120 million for second quarter 2016, a decrease of $11 million compared to $131 million for second quarter 2015. The decrease in operation and maintenance and general and administrative expenses was primarily a result of cost reduction efforts, including lower employee expenses, reduced materials and supplies costs and lower costs related to integration and other contract services. These decreases were partially offset by an increase in payroll-related costs.

Depreciation and amortization expense was $83 million for second quarter 2016, an increase of $7 million compared to $76 million for second quarter 2015. The increase was primarily due to additional assets placed into service.

Taxes other than income taxes were $15 million for second quarter 2016, an increase of $2 million compared to $13 million for second quarter 2015. The increase was primarily due to higher estimated ad valorem taxes.

Interest expense was $25 million for second quarter 2016, an increase of $2 million compared to $23 million for second quarter 2015. The increase was primarily due to higher interest rates on the partnership's outstanding debt and an increase in the amount of outstanding debt.

Capital expenditures were $91 million for second quarter 2016, compared to $297 million for second quarter 2015. Expansion capital expenditures were $74 million for second quarter 2016, compared to $264 million for second quarter 2015. Maintenance capital expenditures were $17 million for second quarter 2016, compared to $33 million for second quarter 2015.

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

The Partnership has included the non-GAAP financial measures gross margin, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted interest expense, distributable cash flow and distribution coverage ratio in this press release based on information in its condensed consolidated financial statements.

Gross margin, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted interest expense, distributable cash flow and distribution coverage ratio are supplemental financial measures that management and external users of the Partnership’s financial statements, such as industry analysts, investors, lenders and rating agencies may use, to assess:

  • The Partnership’s operating performance as compared to those of other publicly traded partnerships in the midstream energy industry, without regard to capital structure or historical cost basis;
  • The ability of the Partnership’s assets to generate sufficient cash flow to make distributions to its partners;
  • The Partnership’s ability to incur and service debt and fund capital expenditures; and
  • The viability of acquisitions and other capital expenditure projects and the returns on investment of various investment opportunities.

This press release includes a reconciliation of gross margin to revenues, Adjusted EBITDA and distributable cash flow to net income attributable to limited partners, Adjusted EBITDA to net cash provided by operating activities and Adjusted interest expense to interest expense, the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures as applicable, for each of the periods indicated. Distribution coverage ratio is a financial performance measure used by management to reflect the relationship between the Partnership's financial operating performance and cash distributions. The Partnership believes that the presentation of gross margin, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted interest expense, distributable cash flow and distribution coverage ratio provides information useful to investors in assessing its financial condition and results of operations. Gross margin, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted interest expense, distributable cash flow and distribution coverage ratio should not be considered as alternatives to net income, operating income, revenue, cash from operations or any other measure of financial performance or liquidity presented in accordance with GAAP. Gross margin, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted interest expense, distributable cash flow and distribution coverage ratio have important limitations as an analytical tool because they exclude some but not all items that affect the most directly comparable GAAP measures. Additionally, because gross margin, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted interest expense, distributable cash flow and distribution coverage ratio may be defined differently by other companies in the Partnership’s industry, its definitions of gross margin, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted interest expense, distributable cash flow and distribution coverage ratio may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies, thereby diminishing their utility.

*Enable is unable to present a quantitative reconciliation of forward looking Adjusted EBITDA to net cash provided by operating activities because certain information needed to make a reasonable forward-looking estimate of changes in working capital which may (provide) use cash during the calendar year 2016 cannot be reliably predicted and the estimate is often dependent on future events which may be uncertain or outside of Enable's control. This includes changes to accounts receivable, accounts payable and other changes in non-current assets and liabilities.
