Fire at Falcon Natural Gas Compression Station
by Enterprise Products Company
December 8, 2011

On December 6, 2011, we reported that equipment inside our Falcon natural gas compressor station in southwestern Wyoming caught fire. The Falcon station, which is part of Enterprise’s Jonah Gas Gathering System, provides compression to transport natural gas production from the Pinedale field to processing plants in the region. All Enterprise employees and contractors have been accounted for. Enterprise has halted the flow of natural gas, isolating the compressor station, and is working with local emergency responders and law enforcement authorities to ensure the safety and security of the facility. The extent of the damage is not yet known, and the cause of the incident is under investigation. Notwithstanding the foregoing, we do not believe that the Falcon incident will have a material impact on our financial condition, results of operations or cash flows.
