11 Drilling shifts to liquids rich areas, driving growth in NGL supply 2000’s forwardIndustry DynamicsCrude/Gas ratios widenElevated NGL pricing creates incentive to explore liquids rich targetsIncrease in NGL supply due to emerging wet gas shale playsHigh NGL content of shale plays makes drilling economical for producers despite low natural gas pricingIncentives for Petrochemical companies to convert to lighter feed stocksIncreased domestic ethylene production for U.S and export markets.Drilling shifts to liquids rich areas, driving growth in NGL supply

13 NGL Infrastructure Constraints MarketWet Gas FairwayCapacity ConstraintsMarketNGL evolution is beginning similar to Gas. High NGL production with capacity constraints to move to market
14 Proposed NGL Infrastructure Proposed NGL P/L’sIncreased E&P activityCurrent infrastructure is inadequate to handle new NGL production forecastsNew processing, fractionation and pipeline investment is necessary to meet current growthOpportunities exist to connect resources to marketsAdditional access to Mt. Belvieu expected to drive a tightening in Conway/Belvieu basis spreads

16 Basis Spreads ?? Ethane Basis Spreads Historically fractionators at or near Conway and Mt. Belvieu processed locally available raw mixNGL Demand has grown primarily due to growth in the Petrochemical demand for ethaneNGL transportation segment is experiencing dwindling available capacity with increasing rates and basis differentialsAdded NGL Infrastructure providing additional access to Mt.

19 Summary ? Question for the Group? Where does the Conway / Belvieu basis settle out in the year ?A. At or greater than the transportation costB. Less than the transportation costC. No opinion because you don’t care or knowWill the gas / crude spread which is driving the push to liquids rich E&P plays continueA. Yes, the spread stays wideB. No, market forces pull the spread back to historical levelsYellow boxes indicate no expore?
