"The industry has been through three years of a downturn, and EnLink's strategic actions have positioned us for continued growth.  We're in the right places with the right partners, and we are executing the right plan, all of which will drive strong results for 2018 and beyond."

Operational Update:

  • Oklahoma:
    • EnLink's Oklahoma segment achieved growth of more than 40 percent in segment profit and average processing volumes for full-year 2017 as compared to full-year 2016, and average gas gathering and transmission volumes increased by approximately 30 percent. EnLink's Oklahoma segment is expected to achieve approximately 50 percent growth in both average volumes and segment profit for full-year 2018, as compared to full-year 2017.
    • EnLink increased gas processing capacity at its Chisholm complex in Central Oklahoma by 400 million cubic feet per day (MMcf/d) during 2017. With these completed expansions, EnLink now operates 1 billion cubic feet per day (Bcf/d) of processing capacity in Central Oklahoma, and remains one of the largest full-service midstream providers in the STACK.  EnLink's previously announced plans to construct the Thunderbird plant, will add 200 MMcf/d of processing capacity in Central Oklahoma.  The Thunderbird facility is expected to be operational during the first quarter of 2019.
    • The construction of EnLink's previously announced Black Coyote crude oil gathering system is progressing well, and is expected to be completed during the first quarter of 2018.  Once the Black Coyote system is operational, EnLink will generate revenue by serving the full range of products produced by Devon Energy's multi-zone large-scale developments, including natural gas, natural gas liquids (NGL) and crude oil. 
  • Midland Basin:
    • EnLink's Midland Basin natural gas system, achieved 15 percent growth in average volumes for the full-year 2017, as compared to full-year 2016. EnLink expects additional volume growth on its system, as producer customers are expected to bring large scale developments on-line during 2018, resulting in average volume growth of around 40 percent for full-year 2018 as compared to full-year 2017. EnLink expects to achieve around 80 percent processing capacity utilization of its processing capacity by the end of 2018.
    • EnLink also placed into full service the Greater Chickadee crude oil gathering system during 2017.  Volumes on the system increased steadily throughout 2017, and EnLink expects to achieve continued growth on the system throughout 2018.
  • Delaware Basin:
    • EnLink's Delaware Basin Joint Venture (JV) achieved significant volume growth during 2017, with full-year 2017 average gas gathering and processing volumes increasing by approximately 300 percent as compared to the full-year 2016 average. EnLink expects to achieve continued volume growth throughout 2018, with average volumes expected to increase by approximately 150 percent for full-year 2018 as compared to the full-year 2017 average.
    • To support continued volume growth across the Delaware Basin footprint, the Delaware Basin JV expanded its Lobo II facility by 60 MMcf/d during 2017, and plans to further expand the facility by 15 MMcf/d in 2018. Additionally, EnLink previously announced the construction of Lobo III, a new 200 MMcf/d expansion expected to be fully operational around year-end 2018. Today, EnLink's Delaware Basin JV operates a total of 155 MMcf/d of processing capacity, with 370 MMcf/d of processing capacity expected to be operational around the end of 2018.
  • Louisiana:
    • NGL fractionation volumes experienced 10 percent growth on average for the full-year 2017 as compared to full-year 2016.  EnLink expects throughput on its Cajun-Sibon pipeline to reach full capacity during 2018, largely driven by the completion of the Chisholm II and III expansions during 2017.  NGLs produced from EnLink's Chisholm complex are preferentially shipped to EnLink's Gulf Coast operations for further transportation, fractionation and downstream value creation.
    • Record gas gathering and transmission volumes of over 2 Bcf/d were achieved on EnLink's Louisiana gas system during the second half of 2017, as demand across the footprint remained robust and EnLink continued to enhance operational capacity and capture new business. 
  • Barnett Shale:
    • Producer customers have become increasingly active in the Barnett Shale, with one to two rigs expected to be operating on EnLink's dedicated acreage throughout 2018.  Redevelopment activity, new well drilling, and pressure optimization initiatives are projected to reduce annual volume decline for 2018, as compared to 2017.
    • EnLink's key producer customer in the Barnett Shale, Devon recently announced results related to its 6-well drilling pilot that leveraged an improved completion design.  Initial 30-day production rates from this 6-well pilot program attained per-well rates as high as 6.5 million cubic feet equivalent per day, with capital costs of approximately $3 million per well.  Devon also announced its 2018 capital outlook, and plans to allocate $50 million to Barnett operations during 2018.
    • Additionally, Devon provided an update regarding its intent to divest select portions of its Barnett Shale position, with a focus on Johnson County and surrounding areas. EnLink holds acreage dedication rights related to Devon's East Johnson County operations, with current midstream services provided in this area representing approximately seven percent of EnLink's total North Texas gross operating margin for both 2017 and 2018.  Devon announced that it is currently in advanced negotiations with a preferred buyer, and a sale announcement is expected by March 31, 2018.

Non-GAAP Financial Information
This press release contains non-generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") financial measures that we refer to as adjusted EBITDA, distributable cash flow available to common unitholders ("distributable cash flow"), gross operating margin, and the General Partner's cash available for distribution.

We define adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss) plus interest expense, provision (benefit) for income taxes, depreciation and amortization expense, impairments, unit-based compensation, (gain) loss on non-cash derivatives, (gain) loss on disposition of assets, (gain) loss on extinguishment of debt, successful acquisition transaction costs, accretion expense associated with asset retirement obligations, reimbursed employee costs, non-cash rent and distributions from unconsolidated affiliate investments, less payments under onerous performance obligations, non-controlling interest and (income) loss from unconsolidated affiliate investments.

We define distributable cash flow as adjusted EBITDA (as defined above), net to the Partnership, less interest expense (excluding amortization of the EnLink Oklahoma Gas Processing LP (together with its subsidiaries, "EnLink Oklahoma T.O.") acquisition installment payable discount), litigation settlement adjustment, adjustments for the redeemable non-controlling interest, interest rate swaps, current income taxes and other non-distributable cash flows, accrued cash distributions on Series B Cumulative Convertible Preferred Units (the "Series B Preferred Units") and Series C Fixed-to-Floating Rate Cumulative Redeemable Perpetual Preferred Units (the "Series C Preferred Units") paid or expected to be paid, and maintenance capital expenditures, excluding maintenance capital expenditures that were contributed by other entities and relate to the non-controlling interest share of our consolidated entities.

We define gross operating margin as revenues less cost of sales.

The General Partner's cash available for distribution is defined as net income (loss) of the General Partner less the net income (loss) attributable to the Partnership, which is consolidated into the General Partner's net income (loss), plus the General Partner's (i) share of distributions from the Partnership, (ii) share of EnLink Oklahoma T.O. non-cash expenses, (iii) deferred income tax (benefit) expense, (iv) corporate goodwill impairment, (v) acquisition transaction costs attributable to its share of the EnLink Oklahoma T.O. acquisition, less the General Partner's interest in maintenance capital expenditures of EnLink Oklahoma T.O. and less third-party non-controlling interest share of net income (loss) from consolidated affiliates.

The Partnership's distribution coverage is calculated by dividing distributable cash flow by distributions declared to the General Partner and the common unitholders. The General Partner's distribution coverage is calculated by dividing cash available for distribution by distributions declared by the General Partner.

Growth capital expenditures generally include capital expenditures made for acquisitions or capital improvements that we expect will increase our asset base, operating income or operating capacity over the long-term.

Maintenance capital expenditures generally include capital expenditures made to replace partially or fully depreciated assets in order to maintain the existing operating capacity of the assets and to extend their useful lives.

Segment profit (loss) is defined as operating income (loss) plus general and administrative expenses, depreciation and amortization, (gain) loss on disposition of assets, impairments and (gain) loss on litigation settlement. Segment profit (loss) includes non-cash compensation expenses reflected in operating expenses. See "Item 1. Financial Statements- Note 14 Segment Information" in ENLK's Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended September 30, 2017 and, when available, "Item 1. Financial Statements- Note 15 Segment Information" in ENLK's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2017, for further information about segment profit (loss).

The Partnership and General Partner believe these measures are useful to investors because they may provide users of this financial information with meaningful comparisons between current results and previously reported results and a meaningful measure of the Partnership's and the General Partner's cash flow after satisfaction of the capital and related requirements of their respective operations.  In addition, adjusted EBITDA achievement is a primary metric used in the Partnership's credit facility and short-term incentive program for compensating its employees.

Gross operating margin, adjusted EBITDA, distributable cash flow and cash available for distribution, as defined above, are not measures of financial performance or liquidity under GAAP. They should not be considered in isolation or as an indicator of the Partnership's and the General Partner's performance. Furthermore, they should not be seen as a substitute for metrics prepared in accordance with GAAP. Reconciliations of these measures to their most directly comparable GAAP measures for the periods that are presented in this press release are included in the following tables.  See ENLK's and ENLC's filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission for more information.

Non-controlling interest share of adjusted EBITDA includes ENLC's 16.1% share of adjusted EBITDA from EnLink Oklahoma T.O., which was acquired in January 2016, NGP Natural Resources XI, L.P.'s ("NGP") 49.9% share of adjusted EBITDA from the Delaware Basin JV, which was formed in August 2016, Marathon Petroleum's 50% share of adjusted EBITDA from the Ascension JV, which began operations in April 2017, and other minor non-controlling interests.   



(5)

(6)

Represents recoveries from litigation settlement for amounts not previously deducted from distributable cash flow.



(7)

During 2016, we entered into an interest rate swap arrangement to mitigate our exposure to interest rate movements prior to our note issuance. The gain on settlement of the interest rate swaps was considered excess proceeds for the note issuance and is therefore excluded from distributable cash flow.



(8)

Excludes maintenance capital expenditures that were contributed by other entities and relate to the non-controlling interest share of our consolidated entities.



(9)

Represents the cash distributions earned by the Series B Preferred Units of $16.1 million and $32.0 million for the three months and year ended December 31, 2017, respectively, and $6.0 million and $6.7 million earned by the Series C Preferred Units for the three months and year ended December 31, 2017, respectively.

The forecasted net income guidance for the year ended December 31, 2018 excludes the potential impact of gains or losses on derivative activity, gains or losses on disposition of assets, impairment expense, gains or losses as a result of legal settlements, gains or losses on extinguishment of debt, and the financial effects of future acquisitions. The exclusion of these items is due to the uncertainty regarding the occurrence, timing and/or amount of these events. 




EnLink Midstream does not provide a reconciliation of forward-looking Net Cash Provided by Operating Activities to Adjusted EBITDA because the companies are unable to predict with reasonable certainty changes in working capital, which may impact cash provided or used during the year.  Working capital includes accounts receivable, accounts payable and other current assets and liabilities. These items are uncertain and depend on various factors outside the companies' control.



(2)

Net income includes estimated net income attributable to ENLK's non-controlling interest in ENLC's 16.1% share of net income from EnLink Oklahoma T.O., NGP's 49.9% share of net income from the Delaware Basin JV and Marathon's 50% share of net income from the Ascension JV.
