Lindley Named President, Natural Gas Liquids Business Development

Kinder Morgan Energy Partners, L.P. (NYSE: KMP) today announced Don Lindley has been named president, Natural Gas Liquids Business Development, of Kinder Morgan Energy Partners.

"America's developing shale plays are dramatically changing energy supply, and we are seeing related growth opportunities across our business segments," explained Kinder Morgan Chairman and CEO Richard D. Kinder. "Our successful Kinder Morgan Crude and Condensate Pipeline and Cochin reversal projects, both of which Don was involved in, are examples of the kind of opportunities we hope to capture. In his new role, Don will organize these business development activities at KMP, which we believe will help us further expand the Kinder Morgan footprint of assets."

Lindley joined Kinder Morgan in 1999 and was most recently vice president of business development for Kinder Morgan's Products Pipelines business. He was instrumental in building the approximately $216 million Kinder Morgan Crude and Condensate Pipeline, which has a capacity of 300,000 barrels per day and began service in June of 2012. It transports product from the Eagle Ford Shale to the Houston Ship Channel. Lindley currently is overseeing development of an approximately $360 million petroleum condensate processing facility on the Houston Ship Channel, and the approximately $260 million Cochin Pipeline Reversal Project, which will reverse flow on the western leg of the pipeline system to provide light condensate to oilsands producers in Western Canada.

In his new role, Lindley will continue to manage business development activities involving the Cochin pipeline system and the company's crude and condensate business and will now also direct expansion strategies across KMP's business segments into new markets with natural gas liquids and crude opportunities.
