HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - Sep 11, 2012) - Crestwood Midstream Partners LP (NYSE: CMLP) ("Crestwood") announced today that it has initiated start-up operations at its Corvette natural gas processing facility in Hood County, Texas following a fire that occurred on Thursday, September 6, 2012. The fire damaged one of nine compressors and a portion of the building housing the compressors adjacent to the processing facility. No injuries were sustained as a result of the incident. The Corvette cryogenic natural gas processing unit was not damaged and was taken out of service as a normal part of the facility's emergency shut-down procedures. Natural gas that was flowing through the Corvette facility prior to the compressor incident was re-routed to Crestwood's other nearby processing facilities or was temporarily shut-in by producers while operations at the Corvette facility were suspended. Crestwood expects the Corvette facility to be back to full service capability in the next few days.
