Energy Transfer Partners (NYSE: ETP) today announced that effective September 1, 2013, the sale of the assets of Missouri Gas Energy (MGE) to Laclede Gas Company, a subsidiary of The Laclede Group, Inc. (NYSE: LG), was completed for $975 million. MGE is a division of Southern Union Company (Southern Union), a wholly-owned subsidiary of ETP.
ETP expects the sale of the assets of Southern Union’s New England Gas Company (NEG) natural gas distribution division for $60 million, less assumed debt, will be completed during the fourth quarter of 2013, pending receipt of required regulatory approval.
The sale by Southern Union of the MGE and NEG assets is another important step in ETP’s efforts to streamline and integrate its asset portfolio through the divestiture of non-core assets. The cash proceeds from these sales will be utilized to repay debt, including borrowings under ETP’s revolving credit facility.
Energy Transfer Partners, L.P. (NYSE: ETP) is a master limited partnership owning and operating one of the largest and most diversified portfolios of energy assets in the United States. ETP currently has natural gas operations that include approximately 33,000 miles of gathering and transportation pipelines, treating and processing assets, and storage facilities. ETP owns 100% of ETP Holdco Corporation, which owns Southern Union Company and Sunoco, Inc., and a 70% interest in Lone Star NGL LLC, a joint venture that owns and operates natural gas liquids storage, fractionation and transportation assets. ETP also owns the general partner, 100% of the incentive distribution rights, and approximately 33.5 million common units in Sunoco Logistics Partners L.P. (NYSE: SXL), which operates a geographically diverse portfolio of crude oil and refined products pipelines, terminalling and crude oil acquisition and marketing assets.
