I believe bunnymoney is referring to IDR's as Incentive Distribution Rights which is $ going to the General Partner. I don't know what % the G.P. currently receives but it caps at 50% of Distributive Cash Flow or DCF. It is based on a longevity scale which increases the % with time. If I have it right. Although, it may have to do with share price increasing % of IDR, as bunny suggests. In either case, I'm sure they ain't going to reduce their piece of the pie!
