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 transportation and 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, 2018 (“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, 2019 (“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.

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 primarily engaged in the business of:

 

 

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

 

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

 

gathering, storing, terminaling and selling crude oil.

 

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

The accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with the instructions to Form 10-Q and do not include all information and disclosures required by GAAP. Therefore, this information should be read in conjunction with our consolidated financial statements and notes contained in our Annual Report. The information furnished herein reflects all adjustments that are, in the opinion of management, necessary for a fair statement of the results of the interim periods reported. 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. Operating results for the three months ended March 31, 2019, are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the year ending December 31, 2019.

Note 3 — Significant Accounting Policies

 

The accounting policies that we follow are set forth in Note 3 – Significant Accounting Policies of the Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements in our Annual Report. Other than the updates noted below, there were no significant updates or revisions to our accounting policies during the three months ended March 31, 2019.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

Recently adopted accounting pronouncements

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 supersede the leases guidance in Topic 840. We adopted Topic 842 on January 1, 2019 by applying the optional transition method in ASU-2018-11, which permits an entity to initially apply the new leases standard at the adoption date and recognize a cumulative-effect adjustment to the opening balance of retained earnings in the period of adoption. The adoption of Topic 842 did not result in a cumulative effect adjustment to retained earnings on January 1, 2019. As part of the adoption of Topic 842, we recognized a net right-of-use asset of $64.2 million (net of $0.4 million of lease incentives/deferred rent) and lease liability of $64.6 million. Other practical expedients we elected include:

 

 

The package for transition relief, which among other things, allows us to carry forward the historical lease classification;

 

The land easements transition, which allows us to carry forward our historical accounting treatment for land easements prior to the effective date of the new leases standard and evaluate under Topic 842 only new or modified land easements on or after January 1, 2019;

 

The short-term lease election, which allows us to elect by all asset classes not to record on the balance sheet a lease whose initial term is twelve months or less;

 

The election to not separate non-lease components from lease components for all the asset classes in our current lease portfolio, where Targa is the lessee; and

 

The election to not separate non-lease components from lease components for gathering, processing and storage assets, where Targa is the lessor. Based on our election, we determined the non-lease component in certain of these arrangements is the predominant component, and therefore, account for the arrangements under ASC 606.

We recognize the following for all leases (with the exception of short-term leases) at the commencement date:

 

 

A lease liability, which is a lessee’s obligation to make lease payments arising from a lease.

 

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.

We determine if an arrangement is or contains a lease at inception. Leases with an initial term of twelve months or less are considered short-term leases, which are excluded from the balance sheet. Right-of-use assets and lease liabilities are recognized at the commencement date based on the present value of future lease payments over the lease term. The right-of-use asset also includes any lease prepayments and excludes lease incentives. As most of the Company’s leases do not provide an implicit interest rate, we use our incremental borrowing rate as the discount rate to compute the present value of our lease liability. The discount rate applied is determined based on information available on the date of adoption for all leases existing as of that date, and on the date of lease commencement for all subsequent leases.

 

Our lease arrangements may include variable lease payments based on an index or market rate or may be based on performance. For variable lease payments based on an index or market rate, we estimate and apply a rate based on information available at the commencement date.  Variable lease payments based on performance are excluded from the calculation of the right-of-use asset and lease liability, and are recognized in our Consolidated Statements of Operations when the contingency underlying such variable lease payments is resolved. Our lease terms may include options to extend or terminate the lease. Such options are included in the measurement of our right-of-use asset and liability, provided we determine that we are reasonably certain to exercise the option.

See Note 11 – Leases for additional details.

Recently issued accounting pronouncements not yet adopted

Customer’s Accounting for Implementation Costs Incurred in a Cloud Computing Arrangement That is a Service Contract

In August 2018, the FASB issued ASU 2018-15, Intangibles – Goodwill and Other – Internal-Use Software (Subtopic 350-40): Customer’s Accounting for Implementation Costs Incurred in a Cloud Computing Arrangement That is a Service Contract. The amendments in this update require customers in a cloud computing arrangement that is a service contract to assess related implementation costs for capitalization using the same approach as implementation costs associated with internal-use software. These amendments are effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those years, beginning after December 15, 2019, with early adoption permitted. Entities may apply the amendments using a retrospective or prospective transition method. The amendments will be effective for Targa in the first quarter of 2020. We currently plan to apply the prospective transition method and do not expect a material impact on our Consolidated Financial Statements.

Subsequent Event

 

Train 7 Joint Venture

 

In February 2019, we announced an extension of Grand Prix from Southern Oklahoma to the STACK region of Central Oklahoma where it will connect with the Williams Companies, Inc. (“Williams”) Bluestem Pipeline and link the Conway, Kansas, and Mont Belvieu, Texas, NGL markets. In connection with this project, Williams has committed significant volumes to us that we will transport on Grand Prix and fractionate at our Mont Belvieu facilities. Williams also had an initial option to purchase a 20% equity interest in one of our recently announced 110 MBbl/d fractionation trains (Train 7 or Train 8) in Mont Belvieu. Williams exercised its option to acquire a 20% equity interest in Train 7 and subsequently executed a joint venture agreement with us in the second quarter of 2019. Certain fractionation-related infrastructure for Train 7, including storage caverns and brine handling, will be funded and owned 100% by Targa.

 

Sale of Interest in Targa Badlands LLC

 

On April 3, 2019, we closed on the sale of a 45% interest in Targa Badlands LLC, the entity that holds substantially all of our assets in North Dakota, to funds managed by GSO Capital Partners and Blackstone Tactical Opportunities (collectively, “Blackstone”) for $1.6 billion in cash. We used the net cash proceeds to repay debt and for general corporate purposes, including funding our growth capital program. We continue to be the operator of Targa Badlands LLC and hold majority governance rights. Future growth capital of Targa Badlands LLC is expected to be funded on a pro rata ownership basis. Targa Badlands LLC will pay a minimum quarterly distribution (“MQD”) to Blackstone and Targa, with Blackstone having a priority right on such MQDs. Additionally, Blackstone’s capital contributions would have a liquidation preference upon a sale of Targa Badlands LLC. We will continue to present Targa Badlands LLC on a consolidated basis in our consolidated financial statements.
