Targa Resources Partners LP Reports Minimal Operational Disruption Due to Hurricane Ike and Reports No Significant Counterparty Exposure to Lehman Brothers
HOUSTON, Sept. 16, 2008 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Based on initial assessments, Targa Resources Partners LP (Nasdaq:NGLS) ("Targa Resources Partners" or the "Partnership") reported today that Hurricane Ike, which made landfall in Texas over the weekend, created only minor and temporary operational disruption to the Partnership's operations located in West Texas, North Texas and onshore Louisiana. Operations were either temporarily interrupted or curtailed during and immediately after the storm due to natural gas and natural gas liquids supply and market issues. The Partnership's facilities are now fully operational and volumes are ramping back up subject to coordination with producers and to market constraints. Most of the disruptions were linked to power outages experienced by other parties downstream of our plants. If progress continues on the market side, volumes are expected to be at or near pre-hurricane levels in a matter of days. For clarity, the Partnership was not impacted by Hurricane Gustav.
