Third Quarter Highlights

  • During the third quarter of 2013, Pembina reported strong operating and financial results, as discussed in more detail below, and announced additional pipeline expansion plans to continue driving future growth. The Company also announced a 3.7 percent dividend increase on August 9, 2013 and successfully secured further financing by issuing preferred shares for gross proceeds of $250 million in July 2013 , followed by a second issuance (subsequent to the end of the third quarter) on October 2, 2013 for $150 million .

  • Consolidated operating margin was $225.8 million for the third quarter of 2013, an increase of 27 percent compared to $177.5 million during the same period of the prior year. Operating margin was positively impacted by several factors including stronger propane pricing and increased volumes resulting from higher activity levels in the majority of Pembina's operating areas. By business, operating margin generated in the third quarter of 2013 compared to the third quarter of 2012 was as follows:
    • $104.8 million compared to $81.6 million from Midstream;
    • $66.3 million compared to $49.4 million from Conventional Pipelines;
    • $33 million compared to $29.3 million from Oil Sands & Heavy Oil; and
    • $20.8 million compared to $16.6 million from Gas Services.
  • Year-to-date, operating margin totalled $673.4 million compared to $454.1 million during the first nine months of 2012, representing an increase of approximately 48 percent, and was positively impacted by the factors mentioned above as well as by the Acquisition. By business, year-to-date operating margin generated in 2013 compared to the first nine months of 2012 was as follows:
    • $324.7 million compared to $169 million from Midstream;
    • $192.4 million compared to $151.3 million from Conventional Pipelines;
    • $97.1 million compared to $87.2 million from Oil Sands & Heavy Oil; and
    • $56.9 million compared to $44.7 million from Gas Services.
  • Pembina realized increased volumes across each of its businesses. In Midstream, stronger propane market fundamentals contributed to an increase in natural gas liquids ("NGL") sales volumes during the third quarter of 2013 compared to the third quarter of the prior year. Driven by continued producer activity and new connections, Conventional Pipelines transported an average of 489.1 thousand barrels per day ("mbpd") in the third quarter of 2013 and 488.8 mbpd in the first nine months of the year, 10 and nine percent higher, respectively, than the same periods of 2012. In Oil Sands & Heavy Oil, volumes exceeded contracted capacity on the Company's Nipisi pipeline mainly due to the addition of a new pump station on the system. Gas Services also saw an increase in volumes of five and six percent, processing an average of 288.2 million cubic feet per day ("MMcf/d") during the third quarter of 2013 and 292.6 MMcf/d in the first nine months of 2013 compared to 275 MMcf/d in the comparable periods of the previous year.

  • The Company's earnings increased to $71.8 million ( $0.22 per share) during the third quarter of 2013 compared to $30.7 million ( $0.11 per share) in the same period of 2012. Earnings were $256.1 million ( $0.83 per share) during the first nine months of 2013 compared to $143.7 million ( $0.58 per share) during the same period of the prior year (which included significant unrealized gains on commodity derivative financial instruments). These increases were primarily due to improved operating margin offset by higher income tax expense. The year-to-date results were also impacted by the timing of the Acquisition.

  • Pembina generated adjusted EBITDA of $200.8 million during the third quarter of 2013 compared to $153.8 million during the third quarter of 2012. This increase was largely due to improved results from operating activities in each of Pembina's businesses and returns on new assets and services. Adjusted EBITDA for the nine month period ended September 30, 2013 was $596.1 million compared to $391.1 million for the same period in 2012 due to strong results in each of Pembina's legacy businesses, new assets and services having been brought on-stream, and completion of the Acquisition.

  • Cash flow from operating activities was $87.3 million ( $0.28 per share) for the third quarter of 2013 compared to $130.9 million ( $0.45 per share) for the same period in 2012. Despite higher EBITDA and earnings, cash flow from operating activities decreased primarily because of increased operating working capital. For the nine months ended September 30, 2013 , cash flow from operating activities was $456.5 million ( $1.50 per share) compared to $220.3 million ( $0.89 per share) during the same period last year. The year-to-date increase was primarily due to improved results from operating activities and the Acquisition.

  • Adjusted cash flow from operating activities was $188.7 million ( $0.61 per share) for the third quarter of 2013 compared to $133.2 million ( $0.46 per share) during the third quarter of 2012. This increase was due to increased EBITDA and lower net interest paid. Adjusted cash flow from operating activities was $540.1 million ( $1.77 per share) during the first nine months of 2013 compared to $321.5 million ( $1.30 share) during the same period of last year, primarily due to stronger operating results, returns on new investments and the impact of the Acquisition.

Growth and Operational Update

Conventional Pipelines Developments

Construction of the Company's Phase I Low Vapour Pressure Expansion ("Phase I LVP Expansion") on its Peace Pipeline between Fox Creek and Edmonton, Alberta , is substantially complete. This expansion will provide an additional 40 mbpd of crude oil and condensate capacity on this segment by the end of November 2013 .

Subsequent to the quarter end, Pembina has substantially completed construction of its Phase I NGL Expansion, which expanded NGL capacity by 52 mbpd on the Peace and Northern Pipelines, bringing total capacity on this system to 167 mbpd by the end of November 2013 .

On September 16, 2013 , in response to requests from area producers for firm service between Simonette and Fox Creek, Alberta , Pembina announced plans to proceed with a $115 million expansion of its Peace Pipeline System (the "Simonette Pipeline Expansion"). This expansion is expected to initially deliver approximately 40 mbpd of additional liquids to Pembina's Fox Creek Terminal from which it will access Pembina's previously announced Phase I and II Peace Pipeline mainline expansions to reach Edmonton area markets. The new pipeline will have a capacity of approximately 150 mbpd and is expected to be in-service in the third quarter of 2014, subject to the necessary environmental and regulatory approvals.

The Simonette Pipeline Expansion will include approximately 60 kilometres of 16-inch pipeline along the Company's existing right-of-way, providing service to producers developing the regional Montney and Duvernay formation resource plays. Once complete, Pembina will have three pipelines in the corridor capable of segregating and shipping various grades of crude oil, condensate and NGL.

In conjunction with the Simonette Pipeline Expansion, Pembina is also installing eight clean crude oil and condensate truck unloading risers at its Fox Creek Terminal which the Company anticipates will be in-service in the fourth quarter of 2013. The addition of high-capacity truck unloading facilities will allow producers to access Edmonton area markets through the previously announced Phase I and II Peace Pipeline mainline expansions.

Pembina expects the Simonette Pipeline Expansion to support its potential Phase III Peace Pipeline mainline expansion plans by providing sufficient capacity and operational flexibility within the Simonette to Fox Creek corridor to transport substantially all future volumes nominated through its previously announced Open Season process. The Company continues to progress engineering design associated with the Open Season and is in the process of finalizing binding transportation agreements with area producers.

Gas Services Developments

On August 9, 2013 , Pembina announced that it is pursuing Musreau II, a new 100 MMcf/d shallow cut gas plant with associated NGL and gas gathering pipelines near its existing Musreau facility (part of the greater Cutbank Complex). Musreau II is underpinned by long-term take-or-pay agreements with area producers. The facility is designed to handle propane-plus (C 3 +) and is expected to yield approximately 4.2 mbpd of NGL for transportation on Pembina's Conventional Pipelines. Pembina has received all required regulatory and environmental approvals for Musreau II and construction is underway with a target in-service date in the first quarter of 2015.

Pembina placed its Saturn I gas plant into service in late-October and is progressing construction of the Saturn II and Resthaven gas plants.

Midstream Developments

Market demand for products and services in the Midstream space is strong for both crude oil and NGL. The capital being deployed in the Midstream business is primarily directed towards fee-for-service projects.

On September 3, 2013 , Pembina announced the acquisition of a $20 million site in the Alberta Industrial Heartland featuring existing rail access and utility infrastructure to support the future development of rail, terminalling and storage facilities (the "Heartland Hub"). The Heartland Hub is a further build-out of Pembina's larger Nexus terminal ("PNT"), servicing crude oil and diluent customers for terminalling, storage and rail.

At the same time, Pembina announced entering into a multi-year, fee-for-service agreement with a major North American refiner for provision of rail loading services for up to 40 mbpd of various crude oil grades at the Company's Redwater facility.

Regarding Pembina's previously announced $415 million RFS II project (a second 73 mbpd fractionator at Pembina's Redwater site that is expected to be in-service in the fourth quarter of 2015), the Company completed land clearing during the third quarter, began washing the feed cavern for the fractionator, ordered all long-lead equipment and is progressing with construction.

Financing Activity

On July 26, 2013 , Pembina closed its offering of 10,000,000 cumulative redeemable rate reset class A preferred shares, series 1 (the "Series 1 Preferred Shares") at a price of $25.00 per share.

Subsequent to the end of the third quarter, on October 2, 2013 , Pembina closed its offering of 6,000,000 cumulative redeemable rate reset class A preferred shares, series 3 (the "Series 3 Preferred Shares") at a price of $25.00 per share.

The Company used the proceeds from the offerings to partially fund capital projects, repay amounts outstanding on Pembina's credit facility, and for other general corporate purposes.

Transition of CEO and Organizational Changes

On September 4, 2013 , the Board of Directors announced that Bob Michaleski , Pembina's long-time Chief Executive Officer ("CEO") plans to retire at the end of 2013 after 35 years of service with the Company. The Board also announced that Mick Dilger , Pembina's President and Chief Operating Officer, will succeed Mr. Michaleski as CEO effective January 1, 2014 , at which time he will also be appointed to the Company's Board of Directors. Mr. Michaleski will continue to serve as a member of Pembina's Board of Directors following his retirement as CEO.

Stu Taylor , Vice President, Gas Services, and Paul Murphy , Vice President, Conventional Pipelines, were promoted to the newly created positions of Senior Vice President, NGL & Natural Gas Facilities and Senior Vice President, Pipeline & Crude Oil Facilities, respectively. The Company believes this structure better reflects the bundled integrated services sought by Pembina's customers.

In addition to these changes, Peter Robertson , the Company's Chief Financial Officer also intends to retire at the end of 2014.

Summary

"During the third quarter, Pembina's momentum of securing value-added growth projects continued at a solid pace in addition to achieving continued strong financial and operational performance," said Bob Michaleski , Pembina's CEO. "Looking back on what we have accomplished as we approach the end of 2013, we have seen an increase in cash flow per share of almost 70 percent in the first nine months of this year compared to the same period of 2012, giving us confidence that the Company is on track to deliver another record year of results. As I prepare to enter retirement at the end of this year and transition my duties as CEO to Mick Dilger , I feel the Company is very well-positioned for the future."

Mick Dilger added: " Pembina currently has the largest suite of commercially secured and unrisked growth projects on its horizon than at any time in its history. I know we have the right team in place to continue driving long-term and sustainable shareholder value going forward. Both our leadership team and our employees are ready to execute on the numerous growth opportunities in front of us with an unwavering commitment to delivering safe, responsible and reliable services from our existing businesses."

Revenue, net of cost of goods sold, increased 27 percent to $316.9 million during the third quarter of 2013 compared to $250 million during the third quarter of 2012, primarily due to strong performance in each of Pembina's businesses as discussed in more detail in their respective sections under "Operating Results" below, as well as returns on new capital investments. Year-to-date revenue, net of cost of goods sold, in 2013 was $926.6 million , up 41 percent from the same period last year. This increase was primarily due to improved performance in each of Pembina's legacy businesses, returns on new capital investments as well as the impact of the Acquisition.

Operating expenses were $86.6 million during the third quarter of 2013 compared to $69.6 million in the third quarter of 2012 and $254.9 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 compared to $185.7 million in the same period of the prior year. The increase in operating expenses for the third quarter and first nine months of 2013 was largely due to higher variable costs in each of the Company's legacy businesses resulting from increased volumes reflecting oil and NGL industry activity as well as additional costs associated with the growth in Pembina's asset base primarily related to the Acquisition.

Operating margin totalled $225.8 million during the third quarter of 2013, up 27 percent from the same period last year when operating margin totalled $177.5 million . For the nine months ended September 30, 2013 operating margin was $673.4 million compared to $454.1 million for the same period of 2012. These increases were primarily due to strong performance and growth throughout Pembina's operations, particularly from Midstream and Conventional Pipelines. The year-to-date increase was also attributable to the timing and impact of the Acquisition.

Realized and unrealized gains/losses on commodity-related derivative financial instruments resulting from Pembina's market risk management program are primarily related to power, frac spread, and product margin derivative financial instruments (see "Market Risk Management Program" and Note 11 to the Interim Financial Statements). Pembina realized losses of $6.6 million and gains of $6.8 million on commodity-related derivative financial instruments for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2013 , respectively, reflecting changes in the future NGL, natural gas and power price indices. For the comparative three and nine months ended September 30, 2012 , the Company incurred losses of $25.9 million and gains of $22.7 million on commodity-related derivative financial instruments which were largely attributable to the reduction in the future NGL price indices between April 2, 2012 and September 30, 2012 .

Depreciation and amortization (operational) decreased to $46.5 million during the third quarter of 2013 compared to $51.6 million during the same period in 2012. The decrease is primarily due to a re-measurement of the decommissioning provision in excess of the carrying amount of the related asset (see Note 6 to the Interim Financial Statements). For the nine months ended September 30, 2013 , depreciation and amortization (operational) was $120.7 million , down from $125.8 million for the same period last year for the same reason noted above.

The increases in revenue and operating margin contributed to gross profit of $177.2 million during the third quarter and $557.8 million during the first nine months of 2013 compared to $102.9 million and $366.6 million during the corresponding periods of the prior year.

General and administrative expenses ("G&A") of $29.8 million were incurred during the third quarter of 2013, up from $26.9 million during the third quarter of 2012 primarily due to the addition of new employees as a result of Pembina's growth since the prior period and increased share based incentive expenses. G&A for the first nine months of 2013 was $88.6 million compared to $70.2 million for the same period of 2012. The increase for the nine month period was mainly due to the addition of new employees who joined the Company both as a result of the Company's growth as well as through the Acquisition. In addition, every $1 change in share price is expected to change Pembina's annual share-based incentive expense by approximately $1 million .

The Company's earnings increased to $71.8 million ( $0.22 per share) during the third quarter of 2013 compared to $30.7 million ( $0.11 per share) in the same period of 2012. Earnings were $256.1 million ( $0.83 per share) during the first nine months of 2013 compared to $143.7 million ( $0.58 per share) during the same period of the prior year (which included significant unrealized gains on commodity derivative financial instruments). These increases were primarily due to improved operating margin offset by increased income tax expense. The year-to-date results were also impacted by the timing of the Acquisition.

Pembina generated adjusted EBITDA of $200.8 million during the third quarter of 2013 compared to $153.8 million during the third quarter of 2012. This increase was largely due to improved results from operating activities in each of Pembina's businesses and returns on new assets and services. Adjusted EBITDA for the nine month period ended September 30, 2013 was $596.1 million compared to $391.1 million for the same period in 2012 due to strong results in each of Pembina's legacy businesses, new assets and services having been brought on-stream, and completion of the Acquisition.

Cash flow from operating activities was $87.3 million ( $0.28 per share) for the third quarter of 2013 compared to $130.9 million ( $0.45 per share) for the same period in 2012. Despite higher EBITDA and earnings, cash flow from operating activities decreased primarily because of increased operating working capital. For the nine months ended September 30, 2013 , cash flow from operating activities was $456.5 million ( $1.50 per share) compared to $220.3 million ( $0.89 per share) during the same period last year. The year-to-date increase was primarily due to improved results from operating activities and the Acquisition.

Adjusted cash flow from operating activities was $188.7 million ( $0.61 per share) for the third quarter of 2013 compared to $133.2 million ( $0.46 per share) during the third quarter of 2012. This increase was due to increased EBITDA and lower net interest paid. Adjusted cash flow from operating activities was $540.1 million ( $1.77 per share) during the first nine months of 2013 compared to $321.5 million ( $1.30 share) during the same period of last year, primarily due to stronger operating results, returns on new investments and the impact of the Acquisition.

Business Overview

Pembina's Conventional Pipelines business comprises a well-maintained and strategically located 8,200 km pipeline network that extends across much of Alberta and B.C. It transports approximately half of Alberta's conventional crude oil production, about thirty percent of the NGL produced in western Canada , and virtually all of the conventional oil and condensate produced in B.C. This business' primary objectives are to provide safe and reliable transportation services for customers, pursue opportunities for increased throughput and maintain and/or grow sustainable operating margin on invested capital by capturing incremental volumes, expanding its pipeline systems, managing revenue and following a disciplined approach to its operating expenses.

Operational Performance: Throughput

During the third quarter of 2013, Conventional Pipelines' throughput averaged 489.1 mbpd, consisting of an average of 355.9 mbpd of crude oil and condensate and 133.2 mbpd of NGL. This represents an increase of approximately 10 percent compared to the same period of 2012, when average throughput was 443.9 mbpd. On a year-to-date basis in 2013, throughput averaged 488.8 mbpd compared to 448.2 mbpd for the first nine months of 2012. Higher throughput in the third quarter and first nine months of 2013 resulted from increased oil and gas producer activity in Conventional Pipelines' service areas, which led to a number of newly connected facilities and increased volumes at existing connections and truck terminals.

Financial Performance

During the third quarter of 2013, Conventional Pipelines generated revenue of $103.1 million compared to $79 million in the same quarter of the previous year. For the first nine months of 2013, revenue was $300.4 million compared to $239.6 million for the same period in 2012. The 31 and 25 percent increases during the respective periods were primarily due to stronger volumes, as noted above, and new connections. Further, a Pembina -owned and operated pipeline system previously captured within the Midstream business was reassigned to Conventional Pipelines, resulting in increased revenue of $5.9 million and $19 million for the third quarter and first nine months of 2013, respectively. This had no impact on the comparability of volumes (discussed above) as the assets are interconnected to existing Conventional Pipelines systems.

During the third quarter, operating expenses increased to $37.2 million in 2013 compared to $30.1 million in 2012. Operating expenses for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 increased to $110.2 million from $87.6 million during the same period of 2012. The quarterly and year-to-date increases were mainly associated with work undertaken to continue to ensure safe and reliable operations at higher throughput levels, such as increased pipeline integrity and geotechnical activities, as well as higher power and labour costs.

Primarily because of higher revenue, operating margin for the third quarter of 2013 was $66.3 million compared to $49.4 million during the third quarter of 2012 and $192.4 million for the first nine months of 2013 compared to $151.3 million for the first nine months of 2012.

For depreciation and amortization included in operations during the third quarter, Conventional Pipelines incurred $6.4 million compared to an expense of $12 million during the third quarter of 2012. The decrease in the comparable period is due to a re-measurement of the decommissioning provision in excess of the carrying amount of the related asset. An expense of $5.9 million was realized for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 compared to an expense of $36.1 million in the first nine months of 2012 with the difference between periods being due to the same factor noted above.

For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2013 , gross profit was $60 million and $188.9 million , respectively, compared to $30.3 million and $105.4 million for the same periods of the prior year. These increases were primarily due to higher revenue generated during the quarter and first nine months of the year, for the reasons discussed above.

Capital expenditures for the third quarter and first nine months of 2013 totalled $78.6 million and $198.9 million , respectively, compared to $34.7 million and $99.2 million for the same periods of 2012. The majority of this spending relates to the expansion of certain pipeline assets as described below, as well as the completion of several new connections to bring additional producer volumes on-line.

New Developments

Pembina is pursuing several crude oil, condensate and NGL expansions on its Conventional Pipelines systems to accommodate increased customer demand and address constrained pipeline capacity in several areas of the WCSB.

Subsequent to the quarter end, Pembina has substantially completed construction of its Phase I NGL Expansion, which expanded NGL capacity by 52,000 bpd on the Peace and Northern Pipelines (the "Peace/Northern NGL System"), bringing total capacity on this system to 167,000 bpd by the end of November 2013 .

Pembina is also progressing its previously announced Phase II NGL Expansion of its Peace/Northern NGL System, which is expected to increase capacity of the system from 167,000 bpd to 220,000 bpd. Subject to obtaining regulatory and environmental approvals, Pembina expects the Phase II NGL Expansion to be complete in mid-2015.

Construction of the Company's Phase I Low Vapour Pressure Expansion ("Phase I LVP Expansion") on its Peace Pipeline between Fox Creek and Edmonton, Alberta , is also substantially complete. This expansion will provide an additional 40,000 bpd of crude oil and condensate capacity on this segment by the end of November, 2013.

In addition, Pembina continues to progress its 55,000 bpd Phase II Low Vapour Pressure Expansion on its Peace Pipeline (the "Phase II LVP Expansion"). Subject to obtaining regulatory and environmental approvals, Pembina expects the Phase II LVP Expansion to be complete in late-2014.

On September 16, 2013 , in response to requests from area producers for firm service between Simonette and Fox Creek, Alberta , Pembina announced plans to proceed with a $115 million expansion of its Peace Pipeline System (the "Simonette Pipeline Expansion"). This expansion is expected to initially deliver approximately 40,000 bpd of additional liquids to Pembina's Fox Creek Terminal from which it will access the Company's previously announced Phase I and II Peace Pipeline mainline expansions to reach Edmonton area markets. The new pipeline will have a capacity of approximately 150,000 bpd and is expected to be in-service in the third quarter of 2014, subject to the necessary environmental and regulatory approvals.

The Simonette Pipeline Expansion will include approximately 60 km of 16-inch pipeline along the Company's existing right-of-way, providing service to producers developing the regional Montney and Duvernay formation resource plays. Once complete, Pembina will have three pipelines in the corridor capable of segregating and shipping various grades of crude oil, condensate and NGL.

In conjunction with the Simonette Pipeline Expansion, Pembina is also installing eight clean crude oil and condensate truck unloading risers at its Fox Creek Terminal which the Company anticipates will be in-service in the fourth quarter of 2013. The addition of high-capacity truck unloading facilities will allow producers to access Edmonton area markets through the previously announced Phase I and II Peace Pipeline mainline expansions.

Pembina expects the Simonette Pipeline Expansion to support its potential Phase III Peace Pipeline mainline expansion plans by providing sufficient capacity and operational flexibility within the Simonette to Fox Creek corridor to transport substantially all future volumes nominated through its previously announced Open Season process. The Company continues to progress stakeholder consultation activities and engineering design associated with the Open Season and is in the process of finalizing binding transportation agreements with area producers.

Business Overview

Pembina plays an important role in supporting Alberta's oil sands and heavy oil industry. Pembina is the sole transporter of crude oil for Syncrude Canada Ltd. (via the Syncrude Pipeline) and Canadian Natural Resources Ltd.'s Horizon Oil Sands operation (via the Horizon Pipeline) to delivery points near Edmonton, Alberta . Pembina also owns and operates the Nipisi and Mitsue Pipelines, which provide transportation for producers operating in the Pelican Lake and Peace River heavy oil regions of Alberta , and the Cheecham Lateral, which transports synthetic crude to oil sands producers operating southeast of Fort McMurray, Alberta . The Oil Sands & Heavy Oil business operates approximately 1,650 km of pipeline and has approximately 880 mbpd of capacity under long-term, extendible contracts, which provide for the flow-through of eligible operating expenses to customers. As a result, operating margin from this business is primarily driven by the amount of capital invested and is predominantly not sensitive to fluctuations in operating expenses or actual throughput.

Financial Performance

The Oil Sands & Heavy Oil business realized revenue of $48.2 million in the third quarter of 2013 compared to $44.1 million in the third quarter of 2012. Year-to-date revenue in 2013 was $142.5 million compared to $126.6 million for the same period in 2012. Revenue for the third quarter and first nine months of the year was higher than the comparable periods of the prior year. This was largely because of increased contribution from the Nipisi system resulting from a new pump station being placed in-service, allowing for additional volumes to be transported above contracted levels in the 2013 periods.

Operating expenses were $15.2 million during the third quarter of 2013 compared to $14.8 million during the third quarter of 2012. For the first nine months of 2013, operating expenses were $45.4 million compared to $39.4 million for the same period in 2012. Additional power costs were the main reason for the increase in operating expenses for both the third quarter and first nine months of 2013.

For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2013 , operating margin increased to $33 million and $97.1 million compared to $29.3 million and $87.2 million , respectively, during the same periods in 2012. These increases were primarily due to the new pump station on the Nipisi pipeline that enables additional throughput above contracted volumes in the 2013 periods.

Depreciation and amortization included in operations for the third quarter and first nine months of 2013 totalled $5 million and $14.8 million , consistent with the same periods of the prior year.

For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2013 , gross profit was $28 million and $82.3 million , higher than gross profit of $24.3 million and $72.4 million , respectively, during the same periods of 2012.

During the first nine months of the year, capital expenditures within the Oil Sands & Heavy Oil business totalled $33 million and were primarily related to the construction of additional pump stations in the Slave Lake, Alberta , area on the Nipisi and Mitsue pipelines. This compares to $12.1 million spent during the same period in 2012, which also related to the Nipisi and Mitsue pipelines.

New Developments

Pembina continues to move forward with work related to its previously announced $35 million engineering support agreement ("ESA") with KKD Oil Sands Partnership ("KOSP" - a partnership between Statoil Canada Ltd., as managing partner, and PTTEP Canada Ltd.) to progress a potential new oil sands pipeline project (the "Cornerstone Pipeline System"). Provided that the oil sands project itself is sanctioned by KOSP, that satisfactory commercial agreements can be reached and that regulatory and environmental approvals can be obtained thereafter, Pembina expects the Cornerstone Pipeline System could be in-service in mid-2017 at an estimated cost of $850 million based on the preliminary design. The Cornerstone Pipeline System is expected to also provide integration opportunities and synergies for Pembina's Midstream business, which is expected to be a 50-percent shipper on the diluent pipeline alongside KOSP.

Pembina also completed an additional pump station for the Mitsue condensate pipeline, which brought Mitsue's capacity from 18,000 bpd to 22,000 bpd.

Business Overview

Pembina's operations include a growing natural gas gathering and processing business, which is strategically positioned in active and emerging NGL-rich plays in the WCSB and integrated with Pembina's other businesses. Gas Services provides gas gathering, compression, and both shallow and deep cut processing services for its customers, primarily on a fee-for-service basis under long-term contracts. The NGL extracted through these processes are transported on Pembina's Conventional Pipelines. As of November 2013 , operating assets in this business include:

  • Pembina's Cutbank Complex - located near Grand Prairie, Alberta , this facility includes three sweet gas processing plants (the Cutbank shallow cut gas plant, Kakwa shallow cut gas plant and Musreau gas plant, which provides both shallow and deep cut services). In total, the Cutbank Complex has 425 MMcf/d of processing capacity (368 MMcf/d net to Pembina ) and 205 MMcf/d of ethane-plus extraction capacity. This facility also includes approximately 350 km of gathering pipelines.
  • Pembina's Saturn I Facility - located near Hinton, Alberta , this facility includes 200 MMcf/d of ethane-plus extraction capacity as well as approximately 25 km of gathering pipelines.

The Cutbank Complex and Saturn I Facility are connected to Pembina's Peace Pipeline system. The Company continues to progress construction and development of numerous other facilities in its Gas Services business to meet the growing needs of producers in west central Alberta , as discussed in more detail below.

Operational Performance

Average processing volumes, net to Pembina , were 288.2 MMcf/d during the third quarter of 2013, slightly higher than the 275 MMcf/d processed during the third quarter of the previous year. On a year-to-date basis, volumes have increased just over six percent to 292.6 MMcf/d compared to 275 MMcf/d in the first nine months of 2012. These increases are attributable to sustained interest of producers in the surrounding areas and their focus on liquids-rich natural gas, which continues to attract higher commodity pricing relative to dry gas.

Financial Performance

Gas Services contributed $31.5 million of revenue during the third quarter of 2013, 33 percent higher than the $23.7 million generated in the third quarter of 2012. For the first nine months of the year, revenue was $87.6 million compared to $65 million in the same period of 2012. These increases primarily reflect higher processing fees and operating recoveries at the Company's Musreau shallow and deep cut facilities. Revenue was also higher as a result of the Company investing additional capital in these facilities to meet producer demand. The Musreau deep cut facility and shallow cut expansion were brought on line early in September of 2012 and have operated throughout 2013.

During the third quarter of 2013, operating expenses were $10.7 million compared to $7.1 million in the third quarter of 2012. Year-to-date operating expenses totalled $30.7 million , up from $20.3 million during the same period of the prior year. The quarterly and year-to-date increases were mainly due to additional electrical power, operating labour and maintenance cost associated with the higher volumes and increased activity at the expanded Cutbank Complex.

Gas Services realized operating margin of $20.8 million in the third quarter and $56.9 million in the first nine months of 2013 compared to $16.6 million and $44.7 million , respectively, during the same periods of the prior year. These increases in operating margin are the result of the higher volumes at the Cutbank Complex and the collection of additional fees for capital invested.

For the three months ended September 30, 2013 , gross profit was $15.4 million compared to $13.2 million in the same period of 2012. On a year-to-date basis, gross profit was $44.3 million compared to $33.8 million during the first nine months of 2012. These increases reflect higher operating margin during the period.

For the nine months ended September 30 , capital expenditures within Gas Services totalled $202.5 million in 2013 compared to $85.6 million in 2012. This increase in spending was to progress the Saturn I, Saturn II, Musreau II, Musreau field facilities and Resthaven facilities, some of which are discussed below.

New Developments

Pembina's Gas Services business is progressing four new facilities and associated infrastructure:

  • Saturn I Facility - a 200 MMcf/d enhanced NGL extraction facility, which was completed on budget;
  • Resthaven Facility - a 200 MMcf/d (130 MMcf/d net to Pembina ) combined shallow cut and deep cut NGL extraction facility, which is expected to cost $240 million (net to Pembina );
  • Saturn II Facility - a 200 MMcf/d 'twin' of the Saturn I facility, which is expected to cost $170 million ; and,
  • Musreau II Facility - a 100 MMcf/d shallow cut gas plant and associated infrastructure, which is expected to cost $110 million .

Saturn I

Pembina has completed and commissioned its Saturn I Facility (200 MMcf/d deep cut processing plant) and associated pipelines and infrastructure. The facility, which has the capacity to extract up to 13.5 mbpd of NGL, was fully operational as of late-October 2013 .

Resthaven

Pembina is progressing construction of the Resthaven facility and expects to bring the facility and associated pipelines into service in the third quarter of 2014. Once operational, the Company expects the Resthaven facility will have the capacity to extract up to 13 mbpd of NGL.

Saturn II

Saturn II will leverage the engineering work completed for the Saturn I Facility and is expected to be in-service by late 2015. Pembina has received the required regulatory and environmental approvals and is progressing construction of the facility. The Company expects the Saturn II facility will have the capacity to extract approximately 13.5 mbpd of NGL, which will be transported on the same liquids pipeline lateral Pembina constructed for the Saturn I Facility.

Musreau II

On August 9, 2013 , Pembina announced that it is pursuing Musreau II, a new 100 MMcf/d shallow cut gas plant with associated NGL and gas gathering pipelines near its existing Musreau facility (part of the greater Cutbank Complex). Musreau II is underpinned by long-term take-or-pay agreements with area producers. The facility is designed to handle propane-plus (C 3 +) and is expected to yield approximately 4.2 mbpd of NGL for transportation on Pembina's Conventional Pipelines. Construction is underway and Pembina expects Musreau II to be in-service in the first quarter of 2015.

Summary

Pembina expects the expansions detailed above to bring the Company's Gas Services processing capacity to approximately 1.2 bcf/d (net) by the end of 2015. This includes ethane-plus extraction capacity of approximately 735 MMcf/d (net). The volumes from Pembina's existing assets and those under development would be processed largely on a contracted, fee-for-service basis and are expected to result in a total of approximately 55 mbpd of NGL to be transported for toll revenue on Pembina's Conventional Pipelines once the projects are complete.

Business Overview

Pembina offers customers a comprehensive suite of midstream products and services through its Midstream business as follows:

  • Crude oil midstream targets oil and diluent-related development opportunities from key sites across Pembina's network, which comprises of 16 truck terminals (including two capable of emulsion treating and water disposal), terminalling at downstream hub locations, storage, and the Pembina Nexus Terminal ("PNT"). PNT includes: 21 inbound pipeline connections; 13 outbound pipeline connections; in excess of 1.2 million bpd of crude oil and condensate supply connected to the terminal; and, 310,000 barrels of surface storage in and around the Edmonton, Alberta area.

  • NGL midstream includes two NGL operating systems - Redwater West and Empress East.
    • The Redwater West NGL system includes the Younger extraction and fractionation facility in B.C.; a 73 mbpd NGL fractionator and 7.8 mmbbls of finished product cavern storage at Redwater, Alberta ; and, third-party fractionation capacity in Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta . Redwater West purchases NGL mix from various natural gas and NGL producers and fractionates it into finished products for further distribution and sale. Also located at the Redwater site is Pembina's industry-leading rail-based terminal which services Pembina's proprietary and customer needs for importing and exporting liquefied petroleum gas and crude oil.

    • The Empress East NGL system includes a 2.1 bcf/d capacity in the straddle plants at Empress, Alberta ; 20 mbpd of fractionation capacity and 1.1 mmbbls of cavern storage in Sarnia, Ontario ; and, ownership of 5.1 mmbbls of hydrocarbon storage at Corunna, Ontario . Empress East extracts NGL mix from natural gas at the Empress straddle plants and purchases NGL mix from other producers/suppliers. Ethane and condensate are generally fractionated out of the NGL mix at Empress and sold into Alberta markets. The remaining NGL mix is transported by pipeline to Sarnia, Ontario for fractionation, distribution and sale. Propane and butane are sold into central Canadian and eastern U.S. markets.

The financial performance of NGL midstream can be affected by the seasonal demand for propane. Inventory generally builds over the second and third quarters of the year and is sold in the fourth quarter and the first quarter of the following year during the winter heating season.

Financial Performance

In the Midstream business, revenue, net of cost of goods sold, grew to $134.8 million during the third quarter of 2013 from $103.2 million during the third quarter of 2012. For the most part, the increase is due to a historically more balanced propane market driven by lower inventories in North America in the 2013 period compared to 2012. Year-to-date revenue, net of cost of goods sold, was $396.8 million in 2013 compared to $224.2 million in 2012. This increase was primarily due to nine months of results generated by the NGL assets in 2013 compared to the 2012 period, which only captured six months of results due to the timing of the Acquisition, along with improved propane pricing, stronger margins and increased storage opportunities for crude oil and condensate in the first quarter of 2013.

Operating expenses during the third quarter and first nine months of 2013 were $25.1 million and $71.6 million , respectively, compared to $18.2 million and $40.3 million in the comparable periods of 2012. Operating expenses were higher due to the increase in Midstream's asset base since the Acquisition.

Operating margin was $104.8 million during the third quarter of 2013 and $324.7 million during the first nine months of the year compared to $81.6 million and $169 million in the respective periods of 2012. These increases primarily relate to growth in revenue, as discussed above.

The Company's crude oil midstream third quarter operating margin increased to $28.7 million in 2013 compared to $27.2 million in 2012. This increase was primarily due to Midstream's ability to capitalize on differentials related to specific commodities during the quarter, increased activities and services at PNT and at Pembina's truck and full-service terminals. However, these positive contributions were offset by increased operating expenses associated with Three Star Trucking and various initiatives supporting pipeline interconnectivity. For the first nine months of the year, crude oil midstream operating margin totalled $99.5 million compared to $87.4 million during the same period of the prior year. The year-to-date increase was primarily due to strong first quarter 2013 results driven by higher volumes and increased activity on Pembina's pipeline systems, robust demand for midstream services, wider margins, as well as increased throughput at the crude oil Midstream truck terminals.

Operating margin for Pembina's NGL midstream activities was $76 million for the third quarter of 2013, including a $3.8 million realized loss on commodity-related derivative financial instruments (see "Market Risk Management Program") compared to $54.4 million for the third quarter of 2012, including a $3.8 million realized loss on commodity-related derivative financial instruments. For the nine months ended September 30, 2013 , operating margin for NGL midstream was $225.2 million , including a $2.8 million realized gain on commodity-related derivative financial instruments compared to $81.6 million , which included a realized loss on commodity-related derivative financial instruments of $15 million , for the same period of 2012.

NGL sales volumes, which were driven by higher sales in propane, butane and condensate during the third quarter of 2013, were 98.9 mbpd, a 14 percent increase compared to the third quarter of 2012.

Operating margin from Redwater West during the third quarter of 2013, excluding realized losses from commodity-related derivative financial instruments, was $60.9 million compared to $46.6 million in the third quarter of 2012. The increase was primarily driven by a stronger year-over-year market for propane. Overall, Redwater West NGL sales volumes averaged 59.4 mbpd in the third quarter of 2013 compared to 52.9 mbpd in the third quarter of 2012.

Operating margin from Empress East during the third quarter of 2013, excluding realized losses from commodity-related derivative financial instruments, was $18.9 million compared to $11.6 million in the same quarter in 2012. Similar to Redwater West, the strengthened third quarter results for Empress East is primarily due to a stronger year-over-year propane market. Operating margin also improved due to lower inventory acquisition costs at Empress , which were primarily driven by lower extraction premiums. Overall, Empress East NGL sales volumes averaged 39.5 mbpd in the third quarter of 2013 compared to 33.8 mbpd in the third quarter of 2012.

Depreciation and amortization included in operations during the third quarter of 2013 totalled $29.7 million compared to $31.2 million during the same period of the prior year. The decrease primarily reflects a reassignment of assets previously in the Midstream business to Conventional Pipelines, as previously discussed. Year-to-date depreciation and amortization included in operations totalled $87.4 million , up from $64 million during the first nine months of 2012. The year-to-date increases reflect the additional Midstream assets in this business since the closing of the Acquisition.

In the third quarter of 2013, unrealized losses on commodity-related derivative financial instruments were $2.2 million compared to $15.9 million for the three months ended September 30, 2012 . For the first nine months of the year, unrealized gains on commodity-related derivative financial instruments were $2.7 million compared to $48.1 million in the same period of the prior year. The significant change in unrealized losses and gains on commodity-related derivative financial instruments which were recognized in the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2012 , respectively, reflected the reduction in the future NGL price indices between April 2, 2012 and September 30, 2012 .

For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2013 , gross profit in this business was $72.9 million and $240 million compared to $34.5 million and $153.1 million during the same periods in 2012 due to the factors impacting revenue, operating expenses, depreciation and amortization (operational) and unrealized gain (loss) on commodity-related derivative financial instruments noted above.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2013 , capital expenditures within the Midstream business totalled $166.5 million compared to $126.6 million during the same period of 2012 and were primarily related to cavern development and associated infrastructure.

New Developments

Market demand for products and services in the Midstream space is strong for both crude oil and NGL. The capital being deployed in the Midstream business is primarily directed towards fee-for-service projects.

On September 3, 2013 , Pembina announced the acquisition of a $20 million site in the Alberta Industrial Heartland featuring existing rail access and utility infrastructure to support the future development of rail, terminalling and storage facilities (the "Heartland Hub"). The Heartland Hub is a further build-out of PNT, servicing crude oil and diluent customers for terminalling, storage and rail.

At the same time, Pembina announced entering into a multi-year, fee-for-service agreement with a major North American refiner for provision of rail loading services for up to 40,000 bpd of various crude oil grades at the Company's Redwater facility.

Regarding Pembina's previously announced RFS II project (a second 73,000 bpd fractionator at Pembina's Redwater site), the Company completed land clearing during the third quarter, began washing the feed cavern for the fractionator, ordered all long-lead equipment and is progressing with construction.

On July 31, 2013 , the Company also announced plans to spend approximately $25 million to upsize certain facilities associated with RFS II to accommodate further expansion and the potential development of a third fractionator ("RFS III") at a later date at its Redwater site. Pembina has not yet entered into commercial agreements for RFS III, but believes there is strong market demand for additional fractionation capacity beyond what will be available after completing RFS II. With the addition of RFS II, which is expected to come into service in the fourth quarter of 2015, the Company's ethane-plus fractionation capacity at Redwater will double to 146,000 bpd. Should RFS III proceed, the facility would leverage engineering and design work completed for both the original Redwater fractionator and RFS II.

Pembina is also continuing to investigate offshore propane export opportunities that would allow it to leverage its existing assets and provide a substantial incremental market for Canadian producers impacted by weak western Canadian pricing.

Market Risk Management Program

Pembina is exposed to frac spread risk, which is the difference between the selling price for propane-plus liquids and the purchase cost of natural gas required to produce respective NGL products. Pembina has a risk management program and uses derivative financial instruments to mitigate frac spread risk, when possible, to safeguard a base level of operating cash flow that covers the input cost of natural gas. Pembina has entered into derivative financial swap contracts to partially protect the frac spread and product margin, and to manage exposure to power costs, interest rates and foreign exchange rates.

Pembina's credit policy mitigates risk of non-performance by counterparties of its derivative financial instruments. Activities undertaken to reduce risk include: regularly monitoring counterparty exposure to approved credit limits; financial reviews of all active counterparties; entering into International Swap Dealers Association agreements; and, obtaining financial assurances where warranted. In addition, Pembina has a diversified base of available counterparties.

Management continues to actively monitor commodity price risk and mitigate its impact through financial risk management activities. For more information on financial instruments and financial risk management, see Note 11 to the Interim Financial Statements.

Non-Operating Expenses

G&A

Pembina incurred G&A (including corporate depreciation and amortization) of $29.8 million during the third quarter of 2013, up from $26.9 million during the third quarter of 2012 primarily due to the addition of new employees as a result of Pembina's growth since the prior period and increased share based incentive expenses. G&A for the first nine months of 2013 was $88.6 million compared to $70.2 million for the same period of 2012. The increase for the nine month period was mainly due to the same reasons as detailed above as well as the addition of new employees who joined the Company through the Acquisition. In addition, every $1 change in share price is expected to change Pembina's annual share-based incentive expense by approximately $1 million .

Depreciation & Amortization (operational)

Depreciation and amortization (operational) decreased to $46.5 million during the third quarter of 2013 compared to $51.6 million during the same period in 2012. For the nine months ended September 30, 2013 , depreciation and amortization (operational) was $120.7 million , down from $125.8 million for the same period last year. The variances during the quarter and year-to-date compared to the same periods of last year are primarily due to a re-measurement of the decommissioning provision in excess of the carrying amount of the related asset offset by depreciation from new assets.

Net Finance Costs

Net finance costs in the third quarter of 2013 were $36 million compared to $33.1 million in the third quarter of 2012. This slight increase is primarily due to a loss on revaluation of the conversion feature of the convertible debentures, offset by lower interest expense on loans and borrowings. Year-to-date net finance costs in 2013 totalled $111.2 million , up from $79.4 million in the same period of 2012. The increase is primarily due to the same reason detailed above.

Income Tax Expense

Income tax expense was $40 million for the third quarter of 2013, including current taxes of $6.2 million and deferred taxes of $33.8 million , compared to current taxes of $0.9 million and deferred taxes of $9.3 million in the same period of 2012. Year-to-date income tax expense in 2013 totalled $101.6 million , up from $48.2 million in the same period of 2012. The current taxes arose during the quarter primarily as a result of certain Pembina subsidiary corporation's taxable income exceeding their losses available for carry-over. Deferred income tax expense arises from the difference between the accounting and tax basis of assets and liabilities.

Pembina anticipates cash flow from operating activities will be more than sufficient to meet its short-term operating obligations and fund its targeted dividend level. In the short-term, Pembina expects to source funds required for capital projects from cash and cash equivalents and unutilized debt facilities totalling $1,515.5 million as at September 30, 2013 . In addition, based on its successful access to financing in the debt and equity markets over the past several years, Pembina believes it would continue to have access to funds at attractive rates, if and when required. Management remains satisfied that the leverage employed in Pembina's capital structure is sufficient and appropriate given the characteristics and operations of the underlying asset base.

Management may make adjustments to Pembina's capital structure as a result of changes in economic conditions or the risk characteristics of the underlying assets. To maintain or modify Pembina's capital structure in the future, Pembina may renegotiate new debt terms, repay existing debt, seek new borrowing and/or issue additional equity.

Pembina's credit facilities at September 30, 2013 consisted of an unsecured $1.5 billion revolving credit facility due March 2018 and an operating facility of $30 million due July 2014 . Borrowings on the revolving credit facility and the operating facility bear interest at prime lending rates plus nil percent to 1.25 percent or Bankers' Acceptances rates plus 1.00 percent to 2.25 percent. Margins on the credit facilities are based on the credit rating of Pembina's senior unsecured debt. There are no repayments due over the term of these facilities. As at September 30, 2013 , Pembina had $30 million drawn on bank debt, $0.1 million in letters of credit and $15.5 million in cash, leaving $1,515.5 million of unutilized debt facilities on the $1,530 million of established bank facilities. Pembina also had an additional $14.1 million in letters of credit issued in a separate demand letter of credit facility. At September 30, 2013 , Pembina had loans and borrowing (excluding amortization, letters of credit and finance lease liabilities) of $1,655.9 million . Pembina's senior debt to total capital at September 30, 2013 was 23 percent.

On July 26, 2013 , Pembina closed its offering of 10,000,000 cumulative redeemable rate reset class A preferred shares, series 1 (the "Series 1 Preferred Shares") at a price of $25.00 per share. Pembina used proceeds from this offering to partially fund capital projects, repay amounts outstanding on the credit facility, and for other general corporate purposes of the Company. The Series 1 Preferred Shares began trading on the Toronto Stock Exchange on July 26, 2013 under the symbol PPL.PR.A.

Subsequent to the end of the third quarter, on October 2, 2013 , Pembina closed its offering of 6,000,000 cumulative redeemable rate reset class A preferred shares, series 3 (the "Series 3 Preferred Shares") at a price of $25.00 per share. Pembina used proceeds from this offering to partially fund capital projects and for general corporate purposes of the Company. The Series 3 Preferred Shares began trading on the Toronto Stock Exchange on October 2, 2013 under the symbol PPL.PR.C.

Credit Ratings

The following information with respect to Pembina's credit ratings is provided as it relates to Pembina's financing costs and liquidity. Specifically, credit ratings affect Pembina's ability to obtain short-term and long-term financing and the cost of such financing. A reduction in the current ratings on Pembina's debt by its rating agencies, particularly a downgrade below investment grade ratings, could adversely affect Pembina's cost of financing and its access to sources of liquidity and capital. In addition, changes in credit ratings may affect Pembina's ability, and the associated costs, to enter into normal course derivative or hedging transactions. Credit ratings are intended to provide investors with an independent measure of credit quality of any issues of securities. The credit ratings assigned by the rating agencies are not recommendations to purchase, hold or sell the securities nor do the ratings comment on market price or suitability for a particular investor. Any rating may not remain in effect for a given period of time or may be revised or withdrawn entirely by a rating agency in the future if in its judgement circumstances so warrant.

DBRS rates Pembina's senior unsecured notes 'BBB' and Series 1 and Series 3 Preferred Shares Pfd-3. S&P's long-term corporate credit rating on Pembina is 'BBB' and its rating of the Series 1 and Series 3 Preferred Shares is P-3.

Changes in Accounting Principles and Practices

The following new standards, interpretations, amendments and improvements to existing standards issued by the International Accounting Standard Board or International Financial Reporting Interpretations Committee were adopted as of January 1, 2013 without any material impact to Pembina's Financial Statements: IFRS 7 Financial Instruments: Disclosures, IFRS 10 Consolidated Financial Statements, IFRS 11 Joint Arrangements, IFRS 12 Disclosure of Interests in Other Entities, IFRS 13 Fair Value Measurement, and IAS 19 Employee Future Benefits.

Controls and Procedures

Changes in internal control over financial reporting

Pembina's Management is responsible for establishing and maintaining disclosure controls and procedures ("DC&P") and internal control over financial reporting ("ICFR"), as those terms are defined in National Instrument 52-109 "Certification of Disclosure in Issuers' Annual and Interim Filings." The objective of this instrument is to improve the quality, reliability and transparency of information that is filed or submitted under securities legislation.

The Chief Executive Officer and the Chief Financial Officer have designed, with the assistance of Pembina employees, DC&P and ICFR to provide reasonable assurance that material information relating to Pembina's business is made known to them, is reported on a timely basis, financial reporting is reliable, and financial statements prepared for external purposes are in accordance with GAAP.

During the third quarter of 2013, there were no changes made to Pembina's ICFR that materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, its ICFR.

As indicated in the previous table, Pembina's total enterprise value was $13.3 billion at September 30, 2013 compared to $10.6 billion at September 30, 2012 . The Company's issued and outstanding shares rose to 312.1 million by the end of the third quarter 2013, compared to 290.5 million in the same period of 2012, primarily due to common shares issued under a bought deal financing which closed in the first quarter of 2013 and common shares issued under the DRIP.

Common Share Dividends

Pembina announced on August 9, 2013 , that it increased its monthly dividend rate by 3.7 percent from $0.135 per common share per month (or $1.62 annualized) to $0.14 per common share per month (or $1.68 annualized) effective as of the August 25, 2013 record date, payable September 13, 2013 . Pembina is committed to providing increased shareholder returns over time by providing stable dividends and, where appropriate, further increases in Pembina's dividend, subject to compliance with applicable laws and the approval of Pembina's Board of Directors. Pembina has a history of delivering common share dividend increases once supportable over the long-term by the underlying fundamentals of Pembina's businesses as a result of, among other things, accretive growth projects or acquisitions (see "Forward-Looking Statements & Information").

Dividends are payable if, as, and when declared by Pembina's Board of Directors. The amount and frequency of dividends declared and payable is at the discretion of the Board of Directors, which will consider earnings, capital requirements, the financial condition of Pembina and other relevant factors.

Eligible Canadian investors may benefit from an enhanced dividend tax credit afforded to the receipt of dividends, depending on individual circumstances. Dividends paid to eligible U.S. investors should qualify for the reduced rate of tax applicable to long-term capital gains but investors are encouraged to seek independent tax advice in this regard.

Preferred Share Dividends

The holders of Series 1 Preferred Shares will be entitled to receive fixed cumulative dividends at an annual rate of $1.0625 per share, payable quarterly on the 1st day of March, June, September and December, if, as and when declared by the Board of Directors of Pembina , yielding 4.25 per cent per annum, for the initial fixed rate period to but excluding December 1, 2018 . The dividend rate will reset on December 1, 2018 and every five years thereafter at a rate equal to the sum of the then five-year Government of Canada bond yield plus 2.47 per cent. The Series 1 Preferred Shares are redeemable by Pembina , at its option, on December 1, 2018 and on December 1 of every fifth year thereafter at a price of $25.00 per share plus accrued and unpaid dividends.

During the periods in the previous table, Pembina's results were influenced by the following factors and trends:

  • Increased oil production from customers operating in the Cardium and Deep Basin Cretaceous formations of west central Alberta , which resulted in increased service offerings and new connections and capacity expansions in these areas;
  • Increased liquids-rich natural gas production from producers in the WCBS (Deep Basin, Montney and emerging Duvernay Shale plays), which resulted in increased gas gathering and processing at the Company's Gas Services assets, additional associated NGL transported on its pipelines and expansion of its fractionation capacity;
  • Improved propane industry fundamentals in Canada and North America ;
  • The Acquisition, which closed on April 2, 2012 (see Note 4 of the Condensed Consolidated Interim Financial Statements for the period ended June 30, 2013 ).
  • Increased shares outstanding due to: the Acquisition; the DRIP; and, the bought deal equity financing in the first quarter of 2013.

Additional Information

Additional information about Pembina and legacy Provident filed with Canadian securities commissions and the SEC, including quarterly and annual reports, AIFs (filed with the SEC under Form 40-F), Management Information Circulars and financial statements can be found online at www.sedar.com , www.sec.gov and Pembina's website at www.pembina.com .

Non-GAAP Measures

Throughout this MD&A, Pembina has used the following terms that are not defined by GAAP but are used by Management to evaluate performance of Pembina and its business. Since Non-GAAP financial measures do not have a standardized meaning prescribed by GAAP and are therefore unlikely to be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies, securities regulations require that Non-GAAP financial measures are clearly defined, qualified and reconciled to their nearest GAAP measure. Except as otherwise indicated, these Non-GAAP measures are calculated and disclosed on a consistent basis from period to period. Specific adjusting items may only be relevant in certain periods.

Net revenue

Net revenue is total revenue less cost of goods sold including product purchases.

Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization ("EBITDA")

EBITDA is commonly used by Management, investors and creditors in the calculation of ratios for assessing leverage and financial performance and is calculated as results from operating activities plus share of profit from equity accounted investees (before tax) plus depreciation and amortization (included in operations and general and administrative expense) and unrealized gains or losses on commodity-related derivative financial instruments.

Adjusted EBITDA is EBITDA excluding acquisition-related expenses in connection with the Acquisition.

Total enterprise value

Total enterprise value, in combination with other measures, is used by Management and the investment community to assess the overall market value of the business. Total enterprise value is calculated based on the market value of common shares, preferred shares and convertible debentures at a specific date plus senior debt.

Management believes these supplemental Non-GAAP measures facilitate the understanding of Pembina's results from operations, leverage, liquidity and financial positions. Investors should be cautioned that net revenue, EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted cash flow from operating activities, operating margin and total enterprise value should not be construed as alternatives to net earnings, cash flow from operating activities or other measures of financial results determined in accordance with GAAP as an indicator of Pembina's performance. Furthermore, these Non-GAAP measures may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other issuers.

Forward-Looking Statements & Information

In the interest of providing our securityholders and potential investors with information regarding Pembina , including Management's assessment of our future plans and operations, certain statements contained in this MD&A constitute forward-looking statements or information (collectively, "forward-looking statements") within the meaning of the "safe harbour" provisions of applicable securities legislation. Forward-looking statements are typically identified by words such as "anticipate", "continue", "estimate", "expect", "may", "will", "project", "should", "could", "believe", "plan", "intend", "design", "target", "undertake", "view", "indicate", "maintain", "explore", "entail", "schedule", "objective", "strategy", "likely", "potential", "envision", "aim", "outlook", "propose", "goal", "would", and similar expressions suggesting future events or future performance.

By their nature, such forward-looking statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that may cause actual results or events to differ materially from those anticipated in such forward-looking statements. Pembina believes the expectations reflected in those forward-looking statements are reasonable but no assurance can be given that these expectations will prove to be correct and such forward-looking statements included in this MD&A should not be unduly relied upon. These statements speak only as of the date of the MD&A.

In particular, this MD&A contains forward-looking statements, including certain financial outlook, pertaining to the following:

  • the future levels of cash dividends that Pembina intends to pay to its shareholders and the tax treatment thereof;
  • planning, construction, capital expenditure estimates, schedules, expected capacity, incremental volumes, in-service dates, rights, activities and operations with respect to new construction of, or expansions on existing, pipelines, gas services facilities, terminalling, storage and hub facilities and other facilities or energy infrastructure;
  • pipeline, processing and storage facility and system operations and throughput levels;
  • Pembina's strategy and the development and expected timing of new business initiatives, growth opportunities, and management succession planning;
  • increased throughput potential due to increased oil and gas industry activity and new connections and other initiatives on Pembina's pipelines;
  • expected future cash flows and future financing options;
  • tolls and tariffs and transportation, storage and services commitments and contracts;
  • operating risks (including the amount of future liabilities related to pipeline spills and other environmental incidents) and related insurance coverage and inspection and integrity programs;
  • the possibility of offshore export opportunities for propane; and
  • the expected impact of changes in share price on annual share-based incentive expense.

Various factors or assumptions are typically applied by Pembina in drawing conclusions or making the forecasts, projections, predictions or estimations set out in forward-looking statements based on information currently available to Pembina . These factors and assumptions include, but are not limited to:

  • oil and gas industry exploration and development activity levels;
  • the success of Pembina's operations;
  • prevailing commodity prices and exchange rates and the ability of Pembina to maintain current credit ratings;
  • the availability of capital to fund future capital requirements relating to existing assets and projects;
  • expectations regarding participation in Pembina's DRIP;
  • future operating costs;
  • geotechnical and integrity costs;
  • in respect of current developments, expansions, planned capital expenditures, completion dates and capacity expectations: that third parties will provide any necessary support; that any third party projects relating to Pembina's growth projects will be sanctioned and completed as expected; that any required commercial agreements can be reached; that all required regulatory and environmental approvals can be obtained on the necessary terms in a timely manner; that counterparties will comply with contracts in a timely manner; that there are no unforeseen events preventing the performance of contracts or the completion of the relevant facilities; and that there are no unforeseen material costs relating to the facilities which are not recoverable from customers;
  • in respect of the stability of Pembina's dividends: prevailing commodity prices, margins and exchange rates; that Pembina's future results of operations will be consistent with past performance and management expectations in relation thereto; the continued availability of capital at attractive prices to fund future capital requirements relating to existing assets and projects, including but not limited to future capital expenditures relating to expansion, upgrades and maintenance shutdowns; the success of growth projects; future operating costs; that counterparties to material agreements will continue to perform in a timely manner; that there are no unforeseen events preventing the performance of contracts; and that there are no unforeseen material construction or other costs related to current growth projects or current operations;
  • interest and tax rates; and
  • prevailing regulatory, tax and environmental laws and regulations.

The actual results of Pembina could differ materially from those anticipated in these forward-looking statements as a result of the material risk factors set forth below:

  • the regulatory environment and decisions;
  • the impact of competitive entities and pricing;
  • labour and material shortages;
  • reliance on key relationships and agreements;
  • the strength and operations of the oil and natural gas production industry and related commodity prices;
  • non-performance or default by counterparties to agreements which Pembina or one or more of its affiliates has entered into in respect of its business;
  • actions by governmental or regulatory authorities including changes in tax laws and treatment, changes in royalty rates or increased environmental regulation;
  • fluctuations in operating results;
  • adverse general economic and market conditions in Canada , North America and elsewhere, including changes in interest rates, foreign currency exchange rates and commodity prices;
  • the failure to complete remaining integration of the businesses of Pembina and Provident; and
  • the other factors discussed under "Risk Factors" in Pembina's AIF for the year ended December 31, 2012 . Pembina's MD&A and AIF are available at www.pembina.com and in Canada under Pembina's company profile on www.sedar.com and in the U.S. on the Company's profile at www.sec.gov.

These factors should not be construed as exhaustive. Unless required by law, Pembina does not undertake any obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise. Any forward-looking statements contained herein are expressly qualified by this cautionary statement.

NOTES TO THE CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED INTERIM FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

1. REPORTING ENTITY

Pembina Pipeline Corporation ("Pembina" or the "Company") is an energy transportation and service provider domiciled in Canada . The condensed consolidated unaudited interim financial statements ("Interim Financial Statements") include the accounts of the Company, its subsidiary companies, partnerships and any interests in associates and jointly controlled entities as at and for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 . These Interim Financial Statements and the notes thereto have been prepared in accordance with IAS 34 - Interim Financial Reporting. They do not include all of the information required for full annual financial statements and should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements of the Company as at and for the year ended December 31, 2012 . The interim financial statements were authorized for issue by the Board of Directors on November 1, 2013 .

Pembina owns or has interests in pipelines that transport conventional crude oil, condensate and natural gas liquids ("NGL"), oil sands and heavy oil pipelines, gas gathering and processing facilities, and an NGL infrastructure and logistics business. Facilities are located in Canada and in the U.S. Pembina also offers midstream services that span across its operations.

The comparative statement of financial position as at December 31, 2012 was reclassified to present deferred tax assets of $7.7 million from one tax jurisdiction separate from deferred tax liabilities of another tax jurisdiction.

2. SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

The accounting policies are set out in the December 31, 2012 financial statements. Those policies have been applied consistently to all periods presented in these Interim Financial Statements.

New standards

The following new standards, interpretations, amendments and improvements to existing standards issued by the International Accounting Standard Board or International Financial Reporting Interpretations Committee were adopted as of January 1, 2013 without any material impact to Pembina's Financial Statements: IFRS 7 Financial Instruments: Disclosures, IFRS 10 Consolidated Financial Statements, IFRS 11 Joint Arrangements, IFRS 12 Disclosure of interests in Other Entities, IFRS 13 Fair Value Measurement, and IAS 19 Employee Future Benefits.

3. DETERMINATION OF FAIR VALUES

A number of the Company's accounting policies and disclosures require the determination of fair value, for both financial and non-financial assets and liabilities. Fair values have been determined for measurement and/or disclosure purposes based on the following methods. When applicable, further information about the assumptions made in determining fair values is disclosed in the notes specific to that asset or liability.

i) Property, plant and equipment

The fair value of property, plant and equipment recognized as a result of a business combination is based on market values when available and depreciated replacement cost when appropriate. Depreciated replacement cost reflects adjustments for physical deterioration as well as functional and economic obsolescence.

ii) Intangible assets

The fair value of intangible assets acquired in a business combination is determined using the multi-period excess earnings method, whereby the subject asset is valued after deducting a fair return on all other assets that are part of creating the related cash flows.

The fair value of other intangible assets is based on the discounted cash flows expected to be derived from the use and eventual sale of the assets.

iii) Derivatives

Fair value of derivatives, with the exception of a put option, are estimated by reference to independent monthly forward settlement prices, interest rate yield curves, currency rates, quoted market prices per share and volatility rates at the period ends.

The fair value of the put option is based on a contracted calculation of a multiple of earnings, adjusted for associated capital expenditures and debt based on management estimates (see Note 11 "Financial Instruments and Financial Risk Management").

Fair values reflect the credit risk of the instrument and include adjustments to take account of the credit risk of the Company entity and counterparty when appropriate.

iv) Non-derivative financial assets and liabilities

Fair value, which is determined for disclosure purposes, is calculated based on the present value of future principal and interest cash flows, discounted at the market rate of interest at the reporting date. In respect of the convertible debentures, the fair value is determined by the market price of the convertible debenture on the reporting date. For finance leases the market rate of interest is determined by reference to similar lease agreements. For disclosure purposes, carrying value is a reasonable approximation for fair value for cash and cash equivalents, trade receivables and other, trade payables and accrued liabilities, finance lease liabilities and dividends payable.

v) Share-based payment transactions

The fair value of the employee share options is measured using the Black-Scholes formula. Measurement inputs include share price on measurement date, exercise price of the instrument, expected volatility (based on weighted average historic volatility adjusted for changes expected due to publicly available information), weighted average expected life of the instruments (based on historical experience and general option holder behaviour), expected dividends, expected forfeitures and the risk-free interest rate (based on government bonds). Service and non-market performance conditions attached to the transactions are not taken into account in determining fair value.

The fair value of the long-term share unit award incentive plan and associated distribution units are measured based on the reporting date market price of the Company's shares. Expected dividends are not taken into account in determining fair value as they are issued as additional distribution share units.

11. FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS AND FINANCIAL RISK MANAGEMENT

Fair values

Financial liabilities carried at amortized cost            
Loans and borrowings 1,649.8 1,740.7     1,944.5 2,089.7
Convertible debentures 612.1(1) 809.1     610.0(1) 725.0
  2,261.9 2,549.8     2,554.5 2,814.7
(1)   Carrying amount excludes conversion feature of convertible debentures.

The basis for determining fair values is disclosed in Note 3.

Fair value hierarchy

The fair value of financial instruments carried at fair value is classified according to the following hierarchy based on the amount of observable inputs used to value the instruments.

Level 1: Unadjusted quoted prices are available in active markets for identical assets or liabilities as the reporting date. Pembina uses Level 1 inputs for the disclosed fair value measurements of the convertible debentures.

Level 2: Inputs other than quoted prices included within Level 1 that are observable for the asset or liability, either directly (i.e. as prices) or indirectly (i.e. derived from prices). Level 2 valuations are based on inputs, including quoted forward prices for commodities, time value and volatility factors, which can be substantially observed or corroborated in the marketplace. Instruments in this category include non-exchange traded derivatives such as over-the-counter physical forwards and options, including those that have prices similar to quoted market prices. Pembina obtains quoted market prices for commodities, future power contracts, interest rates and foreign exchange rates from information sources including banks, Bloomberg Terminals and Natural Gas Exchange (NGX). With the exception of items described in Level 1 and 3, all of Pembina's financial instruments carried at fair value are valued using Level 2 inputs.

Level 3: Valuations in this level require the most significant judgments and consist primarily of unobservable or non-market based inputs. Level 3 inputs include longer-term transactions, transactions in less active markets or transactions at locations for which pricing information is not available. In these instances, internally developed methodologies are used to determine fair value. The redemption liability related to acquisition of subsidiary is classified as a Level 3 instrument, as the fair value is determined by using inputs that are not based on observable market data. The liability represents a put option, held by the non-controlling interest of Three Star Trucking Ltd. ("Three Star"), to sell the remaining one-third of the business to Pembina after the third anniversary of the original acquisition date ( October 3, 2014 ). The put price to be paid by the Company for the residual interest upon exercise is based on a multiple of Three Star's earnings during the three year period prior to exercise, adjusted for associated capital expenditures and debt based on management estimates. These estimates are subject to measurement uncertainty and the effect on the financial statements of future periods could be material.
