Energy Transfer LP : REPORTS FOURTH QUARTER 2021 RESULTS – Form 8-K


ENERGY TRANSFER REPORTS FOURTH QUARTER 2021 RESULTS

Dallas – February 16, 2022-Energy Transfer LP (NYSE:ET) (“Energy Transfer” or the “Partnership”) today reported financial results for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2021.

Energy Transfer reported net income attributable to partners for the three months ended December 31, 2021 of $921 million, an increase of $412 million compared to the same period last year. For the three months ended December 31, 2021, net income per limited partner unit (basic and diluted) was $0.29 per unit.

Adjusted EBITDA for the three months ended December 31, 2021 was $2.81 billion compared to $2.59 billion for the same period last year. The improved results were primarily driven by increased NGL transportation and export volumes, higher realized commodity prices, and the Enable acquisition. Energy Transfer’s NGL business also had record transportation and fractionation volumes in the fourth quarter.

Distributable Cash Flow attributable to partners, as adjusted, for the three months ended December 31, 2021 was $1.60 billion compared to $1.36 billion for the same period last year.

Growth capital expenditures in 2021 were $1.40 billion, which was $200 million less than expected due to project deferrals into 2022. Maintenance capital expenditures were $522 million. Looking ahead, Energy Transfer is updating its 2022 growth and maintenance capital expenditures outlook as a result of the recently closed Enable acquisition and rapidly growing demand for midstream infrastructure. The Partnership expects its 2022 growth capital expenditures to range from $1.6 billion to $1.9 billion, which includes the addition of several new capital projects expected to be completed by year end. Maintenance capital expenditures are expected to range between $615 million and $665 million for 2022. Energy Transfer is also providing an outlook for 2022 Adjusted EBITDA which is expected to range between $11.8 billion and $12.2 billion.

Key accomplishments and recent developments:

Operational

•In February 2022, construction of the final phase of the Mariner East project was completed and commissioning is in progress. Energy Transfer’s Mariner East franchise will now include multiple pipelines across Pennsylvania connecting the prolific Marcellus/Utica Basins in the west to markets throughout the state and the broader region, including Energy Transfer’s Marcus Hook terminal on the east coast.

•During the first quarter 2022, construction began on the Gulf Run Pipeline project. The 42-inch pipeline with 1.65 Bcf/d of capacity is expected to be completed by year-end and will provide natural gas transportation between the Haynesville Shale Basin and the gulf coast.

•During the fourth quarter 2021, Phase II of the Cushing South Pipeline project was launched and is expected to nearly double the project’s oil pipeline capacity to 120,000 barrels per day. This project primarily utilizes existing facilities to provide additional connectivity across Energy Transfer’s mid-continent and gulf coast crude oil network.

•In October 2021, Energy Transfer brought online a three million barrel high-rate storage well at its Mont Belvieu facility, which now includes 24 wells with NGL storage capacity of approximately 53 million barrels.

•In the fourth quarter of 2021, Energy Transfer reached its highest ever volume of NGL transportation and fractionation.

•In October 2021, Energy Transfer completed its Permian Bridge project, providing increased connectivity and efficiency between the Partnership’s natural gas gathering and processing assets in the Delaware Basin and its assets in the Midland Basin.

Strategic

•Energy Transfer is evaluating a new Permian Basin natural gas takeaway project that would utilize existing Partnership assets and a new pipeline to connect Permian supply to markets along the gulf coast, including the Houston Ship Channel, Katy, Carthage, and Henry Hub.

•In December 2021, Energy Transfer successfully closed the Enable Midstream Partners, LP (“Enable”) acquisition and integration of combined operations is ongoing. The merger is expected to generate annual run-rate cost efficiencies in excess of $100 million.

•In December 2021, subsequent to the Enable acquisition, the Partnership and its affiliates purchased more than 20 million Energy Transfer common units in connection with a secondary offering executed by one of Enable’s prior sponsors.

•In the fourth quarter of 2021, the Partnership released its Corporate Responsibility Report, which highlights Energy Transfer’s business achievements and safety and risk management and emissions reduction programs.

Financial

•In January 2022, Energy Transfer announced a 15% increase in its quarterly distribution on common units. For the quarter ended December 31, 2021, Energy Transfer will pay a quarterly distribution of $0.175 per common unit ($0.70 annualized). Future increases to the distribution level will be evaluated quarterly with the ultimate goal of returning distributions to the previous level of $0.305 per common unit per quarter ($1.22 annualized) while balancing the Partnership’s leverage target, growth opportunities and unit buybacks.

•During the fourth quarter of 2021, the Partnership reduced outstanding debt by approximately $400 million (excluding debt assumed in the Enable acquisition), utilizing cash from operations. For the full year 2021, Energy Transfer reduced its existing long-term debt by approximately $6.3 billion.

•As of December 31, 2021, the Partnership’s $5.00 billion revolving credit facilities had an aggregate $2.03 billion of available capacity, and the leverage ratio, as defined by its credit agreement, was 3.07x.

Energy Transfer benefits from a portfolio of assets with exceptional product and geographic diversity. The Partnership’s multiple segments generate high-quality, balanced earnings with no single segment contributing more than 30% of the Partnership’s consolidated Adjusted EBITDA for the three months or full year ended December 31, 2021. The vast majority of the Partnership’s segment margins are fee-based and therefore have limited commodity price sensitivity.

(a)Winter Storm Uri, which occurred in February 2021, resulted in one-time impacts to the Partnership’s consolidated net income, Adjusted EBITDA and Distributable Cash Flow. Please see additional discussion of these impacts, as well as the potential impacts to future periods, included in the “Summary Analysis of Quarterly Results by Segment” below.

(b)Adjusted EBITDA, Distributable Cash Flow and distribution coverage ratio are non-GAAP financial measures used by industry analysts, investors, lenders and rating agencies to assess the financial performance and the operating results of

6

Energy Transfer’s fundamental business activities and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for net income, income from operations, cash flows from operating activities or other GAAP measures.

There are material limitations to using measures such as Adjusted EBITDA, Distributable Cash Flow and distribution coverage ratio, including the difficulty associated with using any such measure as the sole measure to compare the results of one company to another, and the inability to analyze certain significant items that directly affect a company’s net income or loss or cash flows. In addition, our calculations of Adjusted EBITDA, Distributable Cash Flow and distribution coverage ratio may not be consistent with similarly titled measures of other companies and should be viewed in conjunction with measurements that are computed in accordance with GAAP, such as operating income, net income and cash flow from operating activities.

Definition of Adjusted EBITDA

We define Adjusted EBITDA as total partnership earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, depletion, amortization and other non-cash items, such as non-cash compensation expense, gains and losses on disposals of assets, the allowance for equity funds used during construction, unrealized gains and losses on commodity risk management activities, inventory valuation adjustments, non-cash impairment charges, losses on extinguishments of debt and other non-operating income or expense items. Inventory adjustments that are excluded from the calculation of Adjusted EBITDA represent only the changes in lower of cost or market reserves on inventory that is carried at last-in, first-out (“LIFO”). These amounts are unrealized valuation adjustments applied to Sunoco LP’s fuel volumes remaining in inventory at the end of the period.

Adjusted EBITDA reflects amounts for unconsolidated affiliates based on the same recognition and measurement methods used to record equity in earnings of unconsolidated affiliates. Adjusted EBITDA related to unconsolidated affiliates excludes the same items with respect to the unconsolidated affiliate as those excluded from the calculation of Adjusted EBITDA, such as interest, taxes, depreciation, depletion, amortization and other non-cash items. Although these amounts are excluded from Adjusted EBITDA related to unconsolidated affiliates, such exclusion should not be understood to imply that we have control over the operations and resulting revenues and expenses of such affiliates. We do not control our unconsolidated affiliates; therefore, we do not control the earnings or cash flows of such affiliates. The use of Adjusted EBITDA or Adjusted EBITDA related to unconsolidated affiliates as an analytical tool should be limited accordingly.

Adjusted EBITDA is used by management to determine our operating performance and, along with other financial and volumetric data, as internal measures for setting annual operating budgets, assessing financial performance of our numerous business locations, as a measure for evaluating targeted businesses for acquisition and as a measurement component of incentive compensation.

Definition of Distributable Cash Flow

We define Distributable Cash Flow as net income, adjusted for certain non-cash items, less distributions to preferred unitholders and maintenance capital expenditures. Non-cash items include depreciation, depletion and amortization, non-cash compensation expense, amortization included in interest expense, gains and losses on disposals of assets, the allowance for equity funds used during construction, unrealized gains and losses on commodity risk management activities, inventory valuation adjustments, non-cash impairment charges, losses on extinguishments of debt and deferred income taxes. For unconsolidated affiliates, Distributable Cash Flow reflects the Partnership’s proportionate share of the investee’s distributable cash flow.

Distributable Cash Flow is used by management to evaluate our overall performance. Our partnership agreement requires us to distribute all available cash, and Distributable Cash Flow is calculated to evaluate our ability to fund distributions through cash generated by our operations.

On a consolidated basis, Distributable Cash Flow includes 100% of the Distributable Cash Flow of Energy Transfer’s consolidated subsidiaries. However, to the extent that noncontrolling interests exist among our subsidiaries, the Distributable Cash Flow generated by our subsidiaries may not be available to be distributed to our partners. In order to reflect the cash flows available for distributions to our partners, we have reported Distributable Cash Flow attributable to partners, which is calculated by adjusting Distributable Cash Flow (consolidated), as follows:

•For subsidiaries with publicly traded equity interests, Distributable Cash Flow (consolidated) includes 100% of Distributable Cash Flow attributable to such subsidiary, and Distributable Cash Flow attributable to our partners includes distributions to be received by the parent company with respect to the periods presented.

•For consolidated joint ventures or similar entities, where the noncontrolling interest is not publicly traded, Distributable Cash Flow (consolidated) includes 100% of Distributable Cash Flow attributable to such subsidiaries, but

7

Distributable Cash Flow attributable to partners reflects only the amount of Distributable Cash Flow of such subsidiaries that is attributable to our ownership interest.

For Distributable Cash Flow attributable to partners, as adjusted, certain transaction-related adjustments and non-recurring expenses that are included in net income are excluded.

Definition of Distribution Coverage Ratio

Distribution coverage ratio for a period is calculated as Distributable Cash Flow attributable to partners, as adjusted, divided by distributions expected to be paid to the partners of Energy Transfer in respect of such period.

(c) For the three months and year ended December 31, 2021, “Transaction-related adjustments” includes $143 million of Distributable Cash Flow attributable to the operations of Enable for October 1 through December 1, 2021, which represents amounts distributable to Energy Transfer’s common unitholders (including the holders of the common units issued in the Enable acquisition) with respect to the fourth quarter 2021 distribution.

In the following analysis of segment operating results, a measure of segment margin is reported for segments with sales revenues. Segment margin is a non-GAAP financial measure and is presented herein to assist in the analysis of segment operating results and particularly to facilitate an understanding of the impacts that changes in sales revenues have on the segment performance measure of Segment Adjusted EBITDA. Segment margin is similar to the GAAP measure of gross margin, except that segment margin excludes charges for depreciation, depletion and amortization. Among the GAAP measures reported by the Partnership, the most directly comparable measure to segment margin is Segment Adjusted EBITDA; a reconciliation of segment margin to Segment Adjusted EBITDA is included in the following tables for each segment where segment margin is presented.

In addition, for certain segments, the sections below include information on the components of segment margin by sales type, which components are included in order to provide additional disaggregated information to facilitate the analysis of segment margin and Segment Adjusted EBITDA. For example, these components include transportation margin, storage margin, and other margin. These components of segment margin are calculated consistent with the calculation of segment margin; therefore, these components also exclude charges for depreciation, depletion and amortization.

Segment Adjusted EBITDA

$ 274 $ 233

For the three months ended December 31, 2021 compared to the same period last year, transported volumes increased primarily due to volume ramp-ups in the Permian and Haynesville regions, as well as incremental volumes from the Enable assets acquired in December 2021.

Segment Adjusted EBITDA. For the three months ended December 31, 2021 compared to the same period last year, Segment Adjusted EBITDA related to our intrastate transportation and storage segment increased due to the net impacts of the following:

•an increase of $39 million in transportation fees due to increased firm transportation volumes from the Permian and the recognition of certain revenues related to Winter Storm Uri, and incremental revenues from the Enable assets acquired in December 2021;

•an increase of $19 million in retained fuel revenues primarily due to higher natural gas prices; and

•an increase of $16 million in realized natural gas sales and other primarily due to the recognition of certain revenues related to Winter Storm Uri, partially offset by lower optimization volumes with shifts to long-term third-party contracts from the Permian to the Gulf Coast; partially offset by

•an increase of $23 million in operating expenses primarily due to increases of $11 million in cost of fuel consumption due to higher gas prices, $5 million in maintenance project costs, $5 million in ad valorem taxes, and $3 million in incremental expenses from operation of the Enable assets acquired in December 2021; and

•a decrease of $8 million in realized storage margin due to lower storage optimization.

Segment Adjusted EBITDA

$ 397 $ 448

For the three months ended December 31, 2021 compared to the same period last year, transported volumes increased primarily due to the impact of the Enable acquisition, higher utilization on our Tiger system and a reduced impact on our Transwestern system from maintenance of third-party facilities, partially offset by lower utilization of contracted capacity on our Trunkline system.

Segment Adjusted EBITDA. For the three months ended December 31, 2021 compared to the same period last year, Segment Adjusted EBITDA related to our interstate transportation and storage segment decreased due to the net impacts of the following:

•a decrease of $1 million in segment margin primarily due to a $31 million decrease resulting from shipper contract expirations on our Tiger system, a $17 million decrease due to a shipper bankruptcy during 2020 also on our Tiger system, and a $7 million decrease due to lower utilization on our Panhandle and Trunkline systems. These decreases were partially offset by a $39 million impact from the Enable acquisition, an $8 million increase due to higher utilization on our Rover and Tiger systems, a $5 million increase due to increased capacity sold on our Transwestern and Tiger systems and a $3 million increase in operational gas sales on our Transwestern system;

•an increase of $13 million in operating expenses primarily due to a $15 million increase due to the impact of the Enable acquisition, a $20 million increase in ad valorem taxes due to refunds received in the prior period on Transwestern and a $3 million increase in employee related costs. These increases were partially offset by a $14 million decrease due to bad debt expense recorded in the prior period in connection with a shipper bankruptcy, a $7 million decrease in transportation expense and a $4 million decrease resulting from a write-off of obsolete inventory in the prior period;

•an increase of $18 million in selling, general and administrative expenses primarily due to a $12 million impact resulting from a settlement related to excise taxes on Rover in the prior period and a $5 million increase in allocated overhead costs; and

•a decrease of $26 million in Adjusted EBITDA related to unconsolidated affiliates primarily due to a $19 million decrease from our Fayetteville Express Pipeline joint venture as a result of the expiration of foundation shipper contracts, an $8 million decrease from our Citrus joint venture due to a contractual rate adjustment and higher operating expenses, and a $2 million decrease from our Midcontinent Express Pipeline joint venture due to capacity sold at lower rates; partially offset by

•an increase of $7 million in other Adjusted EBITDA primarily due to certain one-time fees received in connection with the operation of a joint venture.

For the three months ended December 31, 2021 compared to the same period last year, NGL transportation volumes increased primarily due to the initiation of service on our propane and ethane export pipelines into our Nederland Terminal in the fourth quarter of 2020, higher volumes from the Permian and Eagle Ford regions and higher volumes on our Mariner East pipeline system.

Refined products transportation volumes increased for the three months ended December 31, 2021 compared to the same period last year due to recovery from COVID-19 related demand reduction in the prior period.

NGL and refined products terminal volumes increased for the three months ended December 31, 2021 compared to the same period last year primarily due to the previously mentioned start of new pipelines and refined product demand recovery.

Average fractionated volumes at our Mont Belvieu, Texas fractionation facility increased for the three months ended December 31, 2021 compared to the same period last year primarily due to lower throughput in the prior period caused by maintenance related downtime at our Mont Belvieu fractionation facility.

Segment Adjusted EBITDA. For the three months ended December 31, 2021 compared to the same period last year, Segment Adjusted EBITDA related to our NGL and refined products transportation and services segment increased due to net impacts of the following:

•an increase of $46 million in transportation margin primarily due to a $29 million increase from higher export volumes feeding into our Nederland Terminal, a $6 million increase resulting from increased utilization of our ethane optimization strategy, a $6 million intrasegment gain related to cavern withdrawals which is offset in our fractionators margin, and a $5 million increase from volumetric gains on our Texas y-grade pipeline system;

•an increase of $41 million in terminal services margin primarily due to a $45 million increase from fees for loading export cargos at our Nederland Terminal.These increases were partially offset by a $5 million decrease resulting from lower rates at our Marcus Hook Terminal due to the decrease in the producer price index effective January 2021; and

•an increase of $17 million in fractionators and refinery services margin primarily due to a $12 million increase resulting from higher volumes in the fourth quarter of 2021, a $6 million increase from operational blending and a $6 million increase due to a more favorable pricing environment impacting our refinery services business.These increases were partially offset by a $6 million intrasegment charge related to cavern withdrawals which is offset in our transportation margin; partially offset by

•an increase of $36 million in operating expenses primarily due to a $20 million increase in utilities cost resulting from higher power and gas prices, a $9 million increase due to the timing of maintenance related expenses, a $5 million increase in allocated corporate overhead costs and a $4 million increase in employee related costs;

•a decrease of $26 million in marketing margin primarily due to a $28 million decrease from the optimization of NGL component products at our Gulf Coast NGL activities, partially offset by an increase of $3 million from our northeast blending and optimization activities; and

•an increase of $12 million in selling, general and administrative expenses primarily due to corporate cost reductions in 2020.

For the three months ended December 31, 2021 compared to the same period last year, crude transportation volumes were higher on our Texas pipeline system and Bakken pipeline, driven by a recovery in crude oil production in these regions as a result of higher crude oil prices as well as higher refinery demand. Additionally, volumes benefited from higher demand on our Bayou Bridge pipeline, the impact of the Cushing South pipeline entering service in 2021, and contributions from assets acquired. Crude terminal volumes were higher due to increased refinery and export activity at our Gulf Coast terminals.

Adjusted EBITDA. For the three months ended December 31, 2021 compared to the same period last year, Segment Adjusted EBITDA related to our crude oil transportation and services segment increased due to the net impacts of the following:

•an increase of $23 million in segment margin (excluding unrealized gains and losses on commodity risk management activities) primarily due to a $58 million increase due to higher volumes on our Bakken Pipeline, a $9 million increase due to higher volumes on our Bayou Bridge pipeline, and a $6 million increase related to assets acquired in 2021, partially offset by a $16 million decrease from our Texas crude pipeline system due to lower average tariff rates realized and a $37 million decrease from our crude oil acquisition and marketing business due to unfavorable crude inventory valuation adjustments and less favorable pricing conditions impacting our Bakken to Gulf Coast trading operations; and

•a decrease of $3 million in selling, general and administrative expenses primarily due to lower legal expenses, partially offset by higher employee expenses and higher overhead allocations to the crude segment as a result of assets acquired; partially offset by

•an increase of $8 million in operating expenses primarily due to higher ad valorem taxes, higher employee expenses, and expenses related to assets acquired in 2021.
