RICHMOND, Va., Feb. 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Dominion Midstream Partners, LP (NYSE: DM) reported unaudited net income attributable to the partnership of $25.1 million, or $0.32 per common limited partner unit for the three months ended Dec. 31, 2015.  Adjusted earnings before interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization (Adjusted EBITDA) was $23.6 million and distributable cash flow was $24.7 million for the quarter.
