Third Quarter Highlights:

  • EBITDA at Spectra Energy Partners segment up 16% over prior-year quarter

  • Expansion projects placed into service during 2015 are expected to generate EBITDA of $135 million annually

Distributable cash flow (DCF) for the quarter was $223 million, compared with $236 million in the same quarter last year.

Ongoing net income from controlling interests was $156 million, or $0.23 diluted earnings per share (EPS), compared with $209 million, or $0.31 diluted EPS in third quarter 2014. Reported net income from controlling interests was $174 million, or $0.26 diluted EPS, compared with $201 million, or $0.30 diluted EPS in third quarter 2014.

CEO COMMENT

"Our solid third quarter performance is consistent with the plan we laid out for investors at the start of the year. Strong performances from our U.S. Transmission and Liquids businesses resulted in EBITDA at Spectra Energy Partners increasing 16 percent over the prior-year quarter," said Greg Ebel, chief executive officer, Spectra Energy. "The sound fundamentals underlying our base business are illustrated by the $8.6 billion of secured projects we currently have in execution, which continue to give us confidence in our ability to grow our dividend 14 cents per year through 2017.

"We continue to demonstrate our execution advantage, placing expansion projects into service early or on schedule," continued Ebel. "In fact, the expansion projects we are putting into service in 2015 are set to contribute $135 million in annual EBITDA for the company."

SEGMENT RESULTS

Spectra Energy Partners
Spectra Energy Partners reported third quarter 2015 EBITDA of $488 million, compared with $422 million in third quarter 2014. These results reflect increased earnings in our natural gas transmission business, virtually all due to expansion projects placed into service in the prior year (TEAM 2014 and TEAM South), and those expansions placed into full or partial service during third quarter 2015, Uniontown to Gas City and OPEN, respectively. The increased earnings also reflect higher transportation revenues due to higher tariff rates and volumes on the Express Pipeline.

Distribution
Distribution reported third quarter 2015 EBITDA of $70 million, compared with $82 million in third quarter 2014, due to a lower Canadian dollar in third quarter 2015. Excluding the $14 million effect of the lower Canadian dollar, Distribution would have reported EBITDA that was higher quarter over quarter due to customer growth.

Western Canada Transmission & Processing
Western Canada Transmission & Processing reported third quarter 2015 EBITDA of $117 million, compared with $156 million in third quarter 2014. The decrease was due entirely to the effect of a lower Canadian dollar and lower earnings at Empress.

Field Services
Spectra Energy reported ongoing EBITDA from Field Services of negative $29 million in third quarter 2015, compared with $63 million in third quarter 2014. The 2015 period excludes special items of $26 million, primarily from a gain on the sale of an asset. The 2014 period excludes special items of $12 million, primarily due to a goodwill impairment. The decrease in ongoing EBITDA was primarily attributable to continued lower commodity prices and lower gains on DCP Midstream Partners (DPM) unit issuances. These decreases were partially offset by asset growth, improved operating efficiencies, and other initiatives. As a reminder, Spectra Energy's EBITDA from Field Services represents the company's 50 percent share of DCP Midstream's earnings before income taxes plus gains from DPM unit issuances.

During third quarters 2015 and 2014, respectively, NGL prices averaged $0.42 per gallon versus $0.90 per gallon, NYMEX natural gas averaged $2.77 per million British thermal units (MMBtu) versus $4.06 per MMBtu, and crude oil averaged approximately $46 per barrel versus $97 per barrel.

Recent transactions initiated by both Spectra Energy and Phillips 66 to strengthen DCP Midstream closed on October 30. These contributions made by the owners, along with various initiatives under way at DCP, establish a foundation for sustainable cash flows at DCP Midstream over the long-run. 

Other
"Other" reported net expenses of $12 million and $19 million in third quarters 2015 and 2014, respectively, reflecting lower employee benefits costs. "Other" primarily consists of corporate costs, including benefits and captive insurance.

Interest Expense
Interest expense was $155 million in third quarter 2015, compared with $167 million in third quarter 2014, mostly reflecting a lower Canadian dollar, partially offset by higher average long-term debt balances.

Income Taxes
Income tax expense was $70 million in third quarter 2015, compared with $76 million in third quarter 2014. The effective tax rate was 22 percent in third quarter 2015, compared with 23 percent in third quarter 2014.

Foreign Currency
Net income from controlling interests was lower by $18 million due to the lower Canadian dollar.

Liquidity and Capital Expenditures
Total debt outstanding at Spectra Energy as of September 30, 2015, was $14.2 billion. Total Spectra Energy liquidity at the end of the quarter was $3.4 billion, including $2.3 billion of available liquidity at Spectra Energy Partners. 

Spectra Energy has $2.8 billion of capital expansion spending planned in 2015, of which $2.2 billion is at Spectra Energy Partners. Excluding reimbursements from noncontrolling interests, total capital spending for the nine months ended September 30, 2015, was $1.9 billion, consisting of approximately $1.4 billion of growth capital expenditures and about $500 million of maintenance capital expenditures.

EXPANSION PROJECT UPDATES 

Spectra Energy continues to make progress on securing $35 billion in new projects by the end of the decade. At the end of third quarter 2015, the company had:

  • $9.6 billion – in service and delivering solid cash flows
  • $8.6 billion – in execution
  • $20+ billion – in development

Spectra Energy Partners
The Uniontown to Gas City project began delivering gas to the Midwest on August 1 and was fully in service September 1, two months ahead of schedule. The brownfield portion of OPEN also achieved an early startup, coming online about six weeks ahead of schedule. The remaining portion of the OPEN project will be placed into service in November, bringing incremental Marcellus and Utica supply to southern markets. 

Construction is under way on the AIM project in New England, which is on track to be in service in the second half of 2016. The Express Enhancement crude oil project also began construction this quarter and is on track, with an estimated 2016 in-service date.

The FERC application for PennEast was filed in September, and the applications for four other projects, Atlantic Bridge, Access South, Adair Southwest, and the Lebanon Extension, were filed in October. These projects are all on schedule for their respective in-service dates.

The NEXUS project, in development with DTE and supported by local distribution companies and Marcellus and Utica producers, will allow customers to move gas through Ohio and Michigan markets to the 150 Bcf Dawn Hub. The Dawn Hub is owned and operated by the company's subsidiary, Union Gas, and is the second largest physically traded gas hub in North America. The company has also recently signed a number of interconnect agreements with industrial facilities and power generators, demonstrating additional support for the route and the project. Major contractors for the project have been selected, and NEXUS will file a formal FERC application this month.

The Gulf Markets, Loudon, and Sabal Trail projects also continue to advance toward their respective in-service dates.

The company continues to advance the Access Northeast project, which is focused on the New England electric power market and saving consumers money while improving the reliability of New England's energy system. Electric reliability is becoming a more critical concern as additional coal, oil, and nuclear generation facilities announce retirements. Access Northeast is an expansion of the Algonquin pipeline and the addition of storage capabilities to provide gas at times of highest demand. The project will utilize the existing footprints of both the Algonquin and the Maritimes & Northeast systems, which already directly connect to 60 percent of the gas-fired generation in the region, enabling gas to flow directly to natural gas generators when it's needed, a necessary step for both consumer savings and reliability.

Central to this solution for New England is the idea that electric distribution companies (EDCs) would secure capacity on the pipeline. Support for this concept is building across the region's six states. In October, the Massachusetts Department of Public Utilities confirmed the EDCs' legal authority to enter into such contracts. Progress is being made in other states toward similar solutions. Access Northeast will continue to work with the New England EDCs to provide a solution to a very real supply concern for New England power generators.

The company anticipates moving Access Northeast into execution in the first half of 2016. 

Distribution
Union Gas is on track to place the 2015 Dawn-Parkway project into service by year-end. This project is the first of several expansions advancing along the Dawn-Parkway path. The 2016 Dawn-Parkway project is under construction and is planned to be in service in the second half of 2016. The regulatory process is under way for the 2017 Dawn-Parkway project, and an Ontario Energy Board decision is expected in early 2016.

Western Canada Transmission & Processing
The company is advancing three projects – High Pine, Jackfish Lake, and RAM – representing $1 billion of incremental investment in Western Canada. High Pine, which was filed with the National Energy Board (NEB) in October, has a projected late 2016 in-service date. Jackfish Lake and RAM will be filed with the NEB by the end of the year and are expected to be in service in 2017.

Field Services
Field Services placed the Zia II plant in the Permian Basin into service this quarter. DCP's National Helium expansion also came online during the third quarter, and is expected to ramp up to its full availability by year-end.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We use ongoing net income from controlling interests and ongoing diluted EPS as measures to evaluate operations of the company. These measures are non-GAAP financial measures as they represent net income from controlling interests and diluted EPS, excluding special items. Special items represent certain charges and credits which we believe will not be recurring on a regular basis. We believe that the presentation of ongoing net income from controlling interests and ongoing diluted EPS provides useful information to investors, as it allows investors to more accurately compare our ongoing performance across periods. The most directly comparable GAAP measures for ongoing net income from controlling interests and ongoing diluted EPS are reported net income from controlling interests and reported diluted EPS.

The primary performance measure used by us to evaluate segment performance is segment earnings from continuing operations before interest, income taxes, and depreciation and amortization (EBITDA). We consider segment EBITDA, which is the GAAP measure used to report segment results, to be a good indicator of each segment's operating performance from its continuing operations as it represents the results of our segments' operations before depreciation and amortization without regard to financing methods or capital structures. Our segment EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies because other companies may not calculate EBITDA in the same manner.

We use EBITDA and ongoing EBITDA, non-GAAP financial measures, as performance measures for Spectra Energy Corp. Ongoing EBITDA represents EBITDA excluding special items. We believe that the presentation of EBITDA and ongoing EBITDA provides useful information to investors, as it allows investors to more accurately compare Spectra Energy Corp's performance across periods. The most directly comparable GAAP measure for EBITDA and ongoing EBITDA for Spectra Energy Corp is net income.

We also use ongoing segment EBITDA and ongoing Other EBITDA (net expenses) as measures of performance. Ongoing segment EBITDA and ongoing Other EBITDA are non-GAAP financial measures, as they represent reported segment EBITDA and reported Other EBITDA, excluding special items. We believe that the presentation of ongoing segment EBITDA and ongoing Other EBITDA provides useful information to investors, as it allows investors to more accurately compare a segment's or Other's ongoing performance across periods. The most directly comparable GAAP measures for ongoing segment EBITDA and ongoing Other EBITDA are reported segment EBITDA and reported Other EBITDA.

We have also presented Distributable Cash Flow (DCF), which is a non-GAAP financial measure. We believe that the presentation of DCF provides useful information to investors, as it represents the cash generation capabilities of the company to support dividend growth. We also use ongoing DCF, which is a non-GAAP financial measure, as it represents DCF excluding the cash effect of special items. The most directly comparable GAAP measure for DCF and ongoing DCF is net income.

The non-GAAP financial measures presented in this press release should not be considered in isolation or as an alternative to financial measures presented in accordance with GAAP. These non-GAAP financial measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies because other companies may not calculate these measures in the same manner.
