CAUTIONARY STATEMENT ABOUT FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

 

Targa Resources Partners LP’s (together with its subsidiaries, “we,” “us,” “our,” “TRP” or “the Partnership”) reports, filings and other public announcements may from time to time contain statements that do not directly or exclusively relate to historical facts. Such statements are “forward-looking statements.” You can typically identify forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, by the use of forward-looking statements, such as “may,” “could,” “project,” “believe,” “anticipate,” “expect,” “estimate,” “potential,” “plan,” “forecast” and other similar words.

 

All statements that are not statements of historical facts, including statements regarding our future financial position, business strategy, budgets, projected costs and plans and objectives of management for future operations, are forward-looking statements.

 

These forward-looking statements reflect our intentions, plans, expectations, assumptions and beliefs about future events and are subject to risks, uncertainties and other factors, many of which are outside our control. Important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from the expectations expressed or implied in the forward-looking statements include known and unknown risks. Known risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to, the following risks and uncertainties:

 

 

the timing and extent of changes in natural gas, natural gas liquids, crude oil and other commodity prices, interest rates and demand for our services;

 

 

the level and success of crude oil and natural gas drilling around our assets, our success in connecting natural gas supplies to our gathering and processing systems, oil supplies to our gathering systems and natural gas liquid supplies to our logistics and marketing facilities and our success in connecting our facilities to transportation services and markets;

 

 

our ability to access the capital markets, which will depend on general market conditions and the credit ratings for our debt obligations;

 

 

the amount of collateral required to be posted from time to time in our transactions;

 

 

our success in risk management activities, including the use of derivative instruments to hedge commodity price risks;

 

 

the level of creditworthiness of counterparties to various transactions with us;

 

 

changes in laws and regulations, particularly with regard to taxes, safety and protection of the environment;

 

 

weather and other natural phenomena;

 

 

industry changes, including the impact of consolidations and changes in competition;

 

 

our ability to obtain necessary licenses, permits and other approvals;

 

 

our ability to grow through acquisitions or internal growth projects and the successful integration and future performance of such assets;

 

 

general economic, market and business conditions; and

 

 

the risks described in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2017 (“Annual Report”) and our reports and registration statements filed from time to time with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”).

 

Although we believe that the assumptions underlying our forward-looking statements are reasonable, any of the assumptions could be inaccurate, and, therefore, we cannot assure you that the forward-looking statements included in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2018 (“Quarterly Report”) will prove to be accurate. Some of these and other risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from such forward-looking statements are more fully described in our Annual Report. Except as may be required by applicable law, we undertake no obligation to publicly update or advise of any change in any forward-looking statement, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.

TARGA RESOURCES PARTNERS LP

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

(Unaudited)

Except as noted within the context of each footnote disclosure, the dollar amounts presented in the tabular data within these footnote disclosures are stated in millions of dollars.

 

Note 1 — Organization and Operations

 

Our Organization

 

Targa Resources Partners LP is a Delaware limited partnership formed in October 2006 by our parent, Targa Resources Corp. (“Targa” or “TRC” or the “Company” or “Parent”). In this Quarterly Report, unless the context requires otherwise, references to “we,” “us,” “our,” “TRP,” or the “Partnership” are intended to mean the business and operations of Targa Resources Partners LP and its consolidated subsidiaries.

Our common units are wholly owned by TRC and no longer publicly traded as a result of TRC’s acquisition of our outstanding common units that it and its subsidiaries did not already own in 2016.

The 5,000,000 9.00% Series A Fixed-to-Floating Rate Cumulative Redeemable Perpetual Preferred Units (the “Preferred Units”) that were issued in October 2015 remain outstanding as limited partner interests in us and continue to trade on the NYSE under the symbol “NGLS PRA.”

 

Our Operations

 

We are engaged in the business of:

 

gathering, compressing, treating, processing and selling natural gas;

 

storing, fractionating, treating, transporting and selling NGLs and NGL products, including services to LPG exporters;

 

gathering, storing, terminaling and selling crude oil; and

 

storing, terminaling and selling refined petroleum products.

 

See Note 19 – Segment Information for certain financial information regarding our business segments.

 

The employees supporting our operations are employed by Targa. Our consolidated financial statements include the direct costs of Targa employees deployed to our operating segments, as well as an allocation of costs associated with our usage of Targa’s centralized general and administrative services.

 

 

Note 2 — Basis of Presentation

We have prepared these unaudited consolidated financial statements in accordance with GAAP for interim financial information and with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 10 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by GAAP for complete financial statements. While we derived the year-end balance sheet data from audited financial statements, this interim report does not include all disclosures required by GAAP for annual periods. These unaudited consolidated financial statements and other information included in this Quarterly Report should be read in conjunction with our consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in our Annual Report.

The unaudited consolidated financial statements for the three months ended March 31, 2018 include all adjustments that we believe are necessary for a fair statement of the results for interim periods. All significant intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation. Certain amounts in prior periods may have been reclassified to conform to the current year presentation.

Our financial results for the three months ended March 31, 2018 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the full year.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

Recently issued accounting pronouncements not yet adopted

Leases

In February 2016, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842). The amendments in this update require, among other items, that lessees recognize the following for all leases (with the exception of short-term leases) at the commencement date: (1) a lease liability, which is a lessee’s obligation to make lease payments arising from a lease, measured on a discounted basis; and (2) a right-of-use asset, which is an asset that represents the lessee’s right to use, or control the use of, a specified asset for the lease term. Lessees and lessors must apply a modified retrospective transition approach for leases existing at, or entered into after, the beginning of the earliest comparative period presented in the financial statements. These amendments are effective for fiscal years, and interim period
