The EnLink Midstream companies (EnLink), EnLink Midstream Partners, LP (ENLK) (the Partnership or ENLK) and EnLink Midstream, LLC (ENLC) (the General Partner or ENLC), reported financial results for the third quarter of 2017, announced gas processing expansions, and provided management and regional updates.

Highlights

ENLK reported net income of $28.7 million and net income attributable to ENLK after non-controlling interest of $25.5 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2017. ENLK achieved $216.8 million of adjusted EBITDA net to ENLK for the same period. Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP measure and is explained in greater detail under "Non-GAAP Financial Information."

ENLC reported net income of $24.1 million and net income attributable to ENLC after non-controlling interest of $6.2 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2017. ENLC achieved $54.8 million of cash available for distribution for the same period. Cash available for distribution is a non-GAAP measure and is explained in greater detail under "Non-GAAP Financial Information."

EnLink’s Oklahoma segment experienced strong volume growth during the third quarter of 2017, with gas gathering and transmission volumes up 16 percent and processing volumes up 19 percent from the second quarter of 2017. EnLink’s Oklahoma gas gathering and transmission volumes increased by 42 percent and processing volumes increased by 53 percent from the third quarter of 2016. Volume growth in Central Oklahoma is expected to remain robust as Devon Energy Corp. and other active producer customers on EnLink’s dedicated acreage continue to deliver strong well results and transition to full-field development targeting multiple producing horizons, especially in the STACK.

EnLink announced plans to construct a new 200 million cubic feet per day (MMcf/d) processing plant, known as the Thunderbird plant, in Central Oklahoma. The new Thunderbird plant is expected to be operational during first quarter of 2019.

EnLink’s Permian Basin operations experienced continued volume growth during the third quarter of 2017, with both gas gathering and transmission and processing volumes increasing 13 percent from the second quarter of 2017. EnLink’s Permian gas gathering and transmission volumes increased by 51 percent and processing volumes increased by 44 percent from the third quarter of 2016.

EnLink’s Delaware Basin Joint Venture (JV) announced the construction of Lobo III, a new 200 MMcf/d expansion of gas processing capacity at the JV’s existing Lobo complex. The expansion is expected to be operational during the second half of 2018. Gas gathering volumes on the JV’s footprint have increased by 365 percent year-over-year, and rig activity remains strong with approximately 16 rigs running on the JV’s capture area.

Impacts from Hurricane Harvey on EnLink’s assets, finances and operations were immaterial, and no significant one-time items impacted volumes or financial results for the third quarter of 2017.

"EnLink continues to execute on our long-term strategic growth plan while delivering solid quarterly financial results," said Barry E. Davis, EnLink Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "Operating in the right places with the right partners has enabled us to develop an opportunity-rich inventory of projects, highlighted by our latest announcements of processing capacity expansions in both Oklahoma and the Delaware Basin. We are experiencing strong volume momentum across our core growth areas and expect this pace to continue. Financially, we have increased focus on maintaining a strong balance sheet, building near-term distribution coverage, and growing distributions over the long-term."

Senior Management Update:

EnLink is pleased to announce Dean Mueller’s promotion to Senior Vice President of Operations in Oklahoma and North Texas. In his new role, Dean will focus on growing and sustaining strong businesses in EnLink’s core growth area of Central Oklahoma and in the company’s anchor position in North Texas.

EnLink recently announced Cynthia L. Jaggi’s appointment to Senior Vice President of Strategic Process Transformation. In her new role, Cindy manages the new Strategic Process Transformation team, which EnLink created to lead and enhance business performance.

Regional Updates:

Central Oklahoma:

EnLink’s Oklahoma segment experienced strong volume growth during the third quarter of 2017, with gas gathering and transmission volumes up 16 percent and processing volumes up 19 percent from the second quarter of 2017. Gas gathering and transmission volumes are up 42 percent and processing volumes are up 53 percent from the third quarter of 2016.

Rig activity remained robust during the third quarter of 2017, with approximately 27 active rigs currently operating on EnLink’s dedicated acreage in Central Oklahoma. EnLink exited the second quarter of 2017 with approximately 24 active rigs on dedicated acreage.

Volume growth is projected to remain strong on EnLink’s Central Oklahoma footprint as Devon and other active producer customers continue to deliver strong well results and transition to full-field development. Several large-scale development projects are scheduled to start over the next 12 to 18 months, securing volume momentum for EnLink.

EnLink announced plans to construct a new 200 MMcf/d processing plant in Central Oklahoma. The new Thunderbird facility is expected to be operational during the first quarter of 2019.

EnLink’s previously announced expansion of its Chisholm complex is progressing on-budget, is nearing completion, and remains on track to be operational by year-end 2017. Once operational, Chisholm III will increase EnLink’s gas processing capacity in Central Oklahoma by 200 MMcf/d, and total gas processing capacity will reach 1 billion cubic feet per day (Bcf/d) in the region, solidifying EnLink’s position as one of the largest and most cost-efficient providers of gas processing in the area.

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 servicing a range of products produced by Devon’s multi-zone Showboat development, including natural gas, condensate, natural gas liquids (NGL) and crude oil.

Midland Basin:

EnLink’s Midland Basin operations continue to benefit from increasing activity levels across its acreage as producer customers further invest in drilling programs and transition to large-scale development projects. Natural gas volume growth is expected to remain steady, driven by the completion of several multi-well pad developments over the next few months and into 2018.

EnLink’s Midland Basin natural gas assets are currently running at approximately 56 percent utilization, and have capacity to handle incremental production with minimal additional growth capital expenditures. EnLink also has the infrastructure in place to cost effectively expand the Riptide gas processing facility by an additional 100 MMcf/d as system volumes continue to increase.

During the third quarter of 2017, EnLink bolstered its position in the Midland Basin by adding an acreage dedication with Parsley Energy Inc. to its customer portfolio and extending supply agreements with a number of key producer customers.

Delaware Basin

Given continued volume growth on its Delaware Basin footprint, EnLink’s Delaware Basin JV announced the construction of Lobo III, a new 200 MMcf/d expansion of gas processing capacity at the JV’s existing Lobo complex. The facility is expected to be operational during the second half of 2018. For 2017, growth capital expenditures associated with the Lobo III expansion are forecasted to be approximately $10 million net to ENLK.

Louisiana:

EnLink’s NGL network continued to benefit from growth in liquids output from the Chisholm II plant during the third quarter of 2017. NGL volumes on EnLink’s system were consistent sequentially, as the second quarter of 2017 benefited from operational impacts related to Mont Belvieu area maintenance.

EnLink continued to experience increased volumes on its Louisiana gas system during the third quarter of 2017, driven by strong demand across its network. Throughput on EnLink’s Louisiana gas system for the third quarter of 2017 exceeded on average 2 Bcf/d, a 4 percent increase as compared to the second quarter of 2017 and a 15 percent increase as compared to the third quarter of 2016.

North Texas:

Devon previously announced 2017 capital investment increases related to its northern Barnett Shale operations, which included a six well program to apply new horizontal refrac techniques. Devon recently announced that, due to the success of the refrac pilot, it plans to expand the refrac program by an additional six wells in the fourth quarter of 2017. Devon’s capital investments also include the initiation of a new rig-line drilling pilot of six wells during September of 2017, with results expected by year-end 2017.

Devon previously announced its intent to divest approximately $1 billion of non-core upstream assets across its portfolio, including select portions of its Barnett Shale position, with a focus on Johnson County properties. EnLink holds acreage dedication rights related to Devon’s East Johnson County operations, with current midstream services provided in this area representing approximately 7 percent of EnLink’s total North Texas revenues.

Non-GAAP Financial Information

This press release contains non-generally accepted accounting principle 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 for income taxes, depreciation and amortization expense, impairment expense, unit-based compensation, (gain) loss on non-cash derivatives, (gain) loss on disposition of assets, (gain) loss on extinguishment of debt, successful 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 (defined above), net to the Partnership, less interest expense (excluding amortization of the 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, accrued cash distributions on Series B Preferred Units and 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) of the Partnership, which is consolidated into the General Partner’s net income (loss), plus the General Partner’s share of distributions from the Partnership, the General Partner’s share of EnLink Oklahoma T.O. non-cash expenses, maintenance capital expenditures, the General Partner’s deferred income tax expense (benefit), the General Partner’s corporate goodwill impairment, the General Partner’s acquisition transaction costs attributable to its share of the EnLink Oklahoma T.O. acquisition, and the non-controlling interest share of the Partnership’s net income (loss).

The Partnership’s coverage ratio is calculated by dividing distributable cash flow by distributions paid to the General Partner and the unitholders. The General Partner’s coverage ratio is calculated by dividing cash available for distribution by distributions paid 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 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.

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 prior-reported results and a meaningful measure of the Partnership’s and the General Partner’s cash flow after it has satisfied the capital and related requirements of its 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 are included in the following tables. See ENLK’s and ENLC’s filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission for more information.

(3) Includes accretion expense associated with asset retirement obligations; reimbursed employee costs from Devon and LPC Crude Oil Marketing LLC ("LPC"); successful acquisition transaction costs, which we do not consider in determining adjusted EBITDA because operating cash flows are not used to fund such costs; and non-cash rent, which relates to lease incentives pro-rated over the lease term.
(4) Non-controlling interest share of adjusted EBITDA includes ENLC’s 16% share of adjusted EBITDA from EnLink Oklahoma T.O., 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) Amortization of the EnLink Oklahoma T.O. installment payable discount is considered non-cash interest under the ENLK credit facility since the payment under the payable is consideration for the acquisition of the EnLink Oklahoma T.O. assets.
(6) Represents recoveries from litigation settlement for amounts not previously deducted from distributable cash flow.
(7) During the third quarter of 2016, we entered into an interest rate swap arrangement that was not designated as a cash flow hedge to mitigate our exposure to interest rate movements prior to our note issuances. 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 $15.9 million for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2017 and $0.7 million earned by the Series C Preferred Units for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2017, assuming a distribution is declared by our Board of Directors. Cash distributions to be paid to holders of the Series B Preferred Units and Series C Preferred Units are not available to common unitholders.

(1) The forward-looking net income guidance excludes the potential impacts 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.
(2) We do not provide a reconciliation of forward-looking Net Cash Provided by Operating Activities to Adjusted EBITDA because we 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.
(3) Includes non-cash rent, which relates to lease incentives pro-rated over the lease term, gains and losses on settled interest rate swaps designated as hedges related to debt issuances, which are recorded in other comprehensive income (loss), and reimbursed employee costs from Devon and LPC, which are costs reimbursed to us by previous employers pursuant to acquisition or merger.
(4) Non-controlling interest share of adjusted EBITDA includes ENLC’s 16% share of adjusted EBITDA from EnLink Oklahoma T.O., 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.
