Energy Transfer to Construct Seventh Fractionation Facility and Expand Lone Star Express Pipeline, Connecting the Constrained Delaware and Permian Basins to Mont Belvieu

Fractionator VII is fully supported by long-term demand fee-based

24-inch Lone Star Express Expansion will provide the necessary
capacity for both current and future transportation commitments out of
the Delaware and Permian Basins

DALLAS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Energy Transfer LP (NYSE: ET) today announced that
its subsidiary, Lone Star NGL LLC (“Lone Star”), will construct a
seventh natural gas liquids (NGL) fractionation facility at Mont
Belvieu, Texas. Fractionator VII is scheduled to be operational in the
first quarter of 2020. The 150,000 barrel per day fractionator is fully
subscribed by multiple long-term contracts and will provide the much
needed capacity required to supplement incremental fractionation demand
in excess of volumes feeding Fractionators I through VI.

Lone Star’s Fractionator V, which was placed in service in July 2018, is
fully contracted with long-term commitments and is operating at full
capacity. Lone Star’s Fractionator VI is currently under construction
and is now expected to be in service during the first quarter of 2019,
ahead of schedule. Fractionator VI is also fully contracted with
long-term commitments and will have a capacity of 150,000 barrels per
day. The company maintains a leading position for NGL fractionation, and
with the completion of Fractionators VI and VII, Lone Star will be
capable of fractionating over 900,000 barrels per day at Mont Belvieu
supported by long-term fee-based agreements.

In addition, Lone Star announced today that it will expand the Lone Star
Express Pipeline by adding a new 352-mile, 24-inch pipeline extending
from Lone Star’s pipeline system near Wink, Texas to Lone Star Express’
30-inch pipeline south of Fort Worth, Texas. This new pipeline will
provide capacity for the significant transportation commitments Lone
Star has secured from the Delaware and Permian Basins. This new pipeline
is expected to be in service by early in the fourth quarter of 2020.
