2 We’re a leading energy infrastructure company
Listed on TSX (ALA) Enterprise value ~$7.4 billion 5 Utilities serving over 540,000 customers in the U.S. and Canada 1,372 MW of Power Generation in five fuel types Gas processing – touching over 2 Bcf/d Our vision has not changed. It is to be a leading North American energy infrastructure company. Over 1,300 MW power generation: Alberta 353 MW coal 72 MW gas British Columbia 379 MW renewable United States 50 MW renewable 507 MW gas Through our Gas, Power and Utility business segments, we have built a $7 billion dollar company of diversified energy infrastructure. Our portfolio is geographically diverse and allows us to use our competitive advantages to build strategic asset clusters. In 2009 we set out a target of achieving $2 billion in growth projects between 2010 and As of the first quarter 2013 we had spent over ($4) billion on growth. We now have approximately $6 billion dollars worth of operating assets across the energy value chain. Market Cap = $36.00 x 116,214,037 shares outstanding = $4,183,705,332 Market Cap $ 4,184 million Debt $ 2,737 million Total Preferred Shares $ 395 million Enterprise Value $ 7,316 million * Rounded to $7.0 billion to be conservative Based on a share price of $36.00 Total assets from Q MD&A: $5,972.4 million  rounded to $6.0 billion for slide Process and transport over 2.0 Bcf/d : See attached detailed schedule Diversified markets and business segments

Forrest Kerr 195 MW McLymont Creek 66 MW Volcano Creek 16 MW Total investment ~$1.0 billion Long-term Energy Purchase Agreements with BC Hydro Impact Benefit Agreements in place with Tahltan First Nation Construction started in will take 5 years to complete all three projects New BC Hydro 344 km 287 kV Transmission Line Information Sources: Q Report 2011 MD&A See "Forward-Looking Statements & Information

4 Northwest Projects – Forrest Kerr history
1970s – 1980s BC Hydro investigates site for potential development of large 800 MW dam Mid 1990s Site is investigated as a potential power source of 30 MW for a mine development 2000 – 2001 Coast Mountain Hydro initiates investigations for the site as independent power development 2003 – 2004 Environmental Assessment Certificate issued for 112 MW m3/s diversion flow 2006 NovaGold acquires Coast Mountain to support its Galore Creek mine development 2008 NovaGold sells Coast Mountain assets to AltaGas Ltd. 2008 – 2010 195 MW Project with 252m3/s diversion flow fully permitted by AltaGas, an EPA in place with BC Hydro and Participation Agreement is signed with Tahltan First Nation 2010 In mid-2010 AltaGas began construction of the Forrest Kerr Project

Key Parameters/ Components 100m gross head 252m3/s design flow L x 7m H Obermeyer Weir Intake and de-sanding basin Over 5 km of tunnels - largest is power tunnel 10m dia. 3km L Underground powerhouse m L X 17m W X 27m H 4m dia. ~130m L vertical bus shaft 22 MW Andritz Horizontal Francis Turbines 40km 287 kV Transmission line 300+ man camp and related facilities COD Mid-2014 Capital cost estimate: $725 million Weir Power Tunnel Top photo: Forrest Kerr Power Tunnel (from Comms library, April 5, 2013) Bottom photo: Weir construction (from Comms library April 15, 2013) We made substantial progress on our Northwest run of river hydro projects. At the end of 2012, Forest Kerr was 75 percent complete. In the first four months of 2013, it has advanced another [x] percent. The tunneling is complete, the in-river work is complete, and completion of the powerhouse is ahead of schedule. There are no major components that are on critical path anymore and we expect the plant to be mechanically complete by the end of the year. We expect to commission the plant by mid-2014 once the Northwest Transmission Line is up and running. The project overall remains on budget and ahead of schedule. The 195 MW Forrest Kerr can power approximately 70,000 homes

7 Forrest Kerr Contractors/Suppliers
Intake Structure Over 170 suppliers - major contractors include: Tahltan Nation Development Corp. (site prep. civil support) Procon Mining (Excavation) Obermeyer Hydro (Weir) Turbine Pro ( Installation) Andritz Hydro (Turbines, Generators supply) AFI Hydro (gates/ hoist) Formula Contractors (civil etc.) WestPro (civil etc.) CG Power/ Alstom (Transformers) Hitachi Power Sys.(Penstock) Valard Construction (T/L) PDI Solutions (Cranes) Hatch Engineering Northwest Hydraulics Power Tunnel Weir De-sander Intake

8 Forrest Kerr Weir January 2013 May 2013
The weir is the structure that will control the flow of water into the power tunnel, and ensure that the majority of water continues to flow in the Iskut River at all times. In these two pictures you can see that the weir went from a foundation to being in operation in a short amount of time, thanks to everyone’s hard work on-site. During planning both THREAT and government requested Altagas to minimize the interruption of sediment transport in the Iskut by filling in behind the weir. The natural River sediment load is 60 million tonnes per year and would fill up behind the weir in one year. Sediment transport is a key component of the natural Iskut ecosystem and will be a long term monitoring requirement of Altagas to ensure the project functions as designed.
