EnLink Midstream Reports Fourth Quarter and Full-Year 2021 Results,

Provides 2022 Financial Guidance

 

DALLAS, February 15, 2022 — EnLink Midstream, LLC (NYSE: ENLC) (EnLink) today reported financial results for the fourth quarter and full-year 2021 and provided 2022 financial guidance.

 

Highlights

 

Reported net income of $88.6 million and $142.9 million for the fourth quarter of 2021 and full-year 2021, respectively, and net cash provided by operations of $258.1 million and $857.3 million for the fourth quarter and full-year 2021, respectively.
Generated adjusted EBITDA, net to EnLink, of $286.4 million and $1.05 billion for the fourth quarter of 2021 and full-year 2021, respectively, an amount that was in the upper end of full year 2021 financial guidance. During the quarter, EnLink benefited from robust producer activity and disciplined focus on the cost structure.
Grew fourth quarter 2021 adjusted EBITDA 17.5% compared to the fourth quarter of 2020 and full-year 2021 adjusted EBITDA 7.0% compared to full-year 2020, each after excluding the impact of minimum volume commitments (MVCs) that expired in 2020.
Continued to see strengthening producer activity across EnLink's gathering and processing systems during the fourth quarter of 2021. Permian gathering volumes for the fourth quarter of 2021 increased 28% over the fourth quarter of 2020. Oklahoma gathering volumes for the fourth quarter of 2021 declined only 2% over the fourth quarter of 2020, while North Texas gathering volumes for the fourth quarter of 2021 remained flat over fourth quarter 2020.
Delivered $67.4 million of free cash flow after distributions (FCFAD) for the fourth quarter of 2021, despite a 20% increase to fourth quarter distribution, driven by strong operational results. For the second consecutive year, EnLink generated FCFAD in excess of $300 million, with $313.6 million reported for the full-year 2021.
Reached near-term leverage goal with credit facility leverage of 3.9x at year-end.
Increased returns to unitholders in 2021 by increasing the common unit distribution 20% for the fourth quarter of 2021, repurchasing $40.1 million in common units during full-year 2021, and redeeming $50 million of Series B Preferred Units in the fourth quarter. In addition, during January 2022, EnLink repurchased an incremental $10 million of common units and redeemed an incremental $50 million of par value of Series B Preferred Units. Both redemptions were executed at 101% of par value. Taking into account these repurchases and redemptions, the overall distribution payout increased by approximately $25 million on an annualized basis.

Expects solid cash flow generation to continue in 2022 with adjusted EBITDA growth of approximately 10% over 2021 at the midpoint of 2022 guidance range of $1.11 billion to $1.19 billion. EnLink also expects to generate more than of $300 million in FCFAD based on the midpoint of 2022 guidance.
Subsequent to the quarter, EnLink announced that the company has signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with Talos Energy (NYSE: TALO) to provide a complete carbon capture, transportation and sequestration (CCS) offering for industrial-scale emitters in Louisiana, utilizing EnLink's midstream assets combined with Talos' subsurface assets. Talos has secured approximately 26,000 acres in Louisiana providing sequestration capacity of over 500 million metric tonnes, which will be known as River Bend CCS.

 

"EnLink achieved another quarter of robust financial results, closing out a great 2021, which is a testament to our employees relentless focus on execution, innovation, and cost discipline,” said Barry E. Davis. EnLink Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “The strong performance and execution of our team allows us to enter 2022 in a position of strength.

 

We are continuing to advance our vision to become the future of midstream by leading in innovation and creating sustainable value. We will do this by utilizing our integrated business model and operational excellence to build upon our large-scale, cash-flow generating platform, while pursuing energy solutions for the future, as we are doing with our focus on growing a substantial CCS business. The alliance that we announced today with Talos builds on our strategic advantage in CCS by combining the expertise and assets of both companies to create a more cost-efficient and environmentally friendly offering than potential new build projects.

 

We are confident in our ability to execute and drive value in 2022, and our financial guidance and strategic plan initiatives exemplify how we plan to create sustainable value for our investors and position EnLink as the midstream company of the future.”

2022 Financial Guidance

 

$MM, unless noted  2022 Guidance 
Net Income (1)   230 - 310 
Adjusted EBITDA, net to EnLink   1,110 - 1,190 
Capex, net to EnLink, & Plant Relocation Costs   285 - 325

Free Cash Flow After Distributions   285 - 345 
Annualized 4Q21 Declared Distribution per Common Unit  $0.45/unit 

 

 

(1) Net income is before non-controlling interest.

 

Adjusted EBITDA, net to EnLink, for 2022 is forecasted to continue the trend of solid growth, with implied growth over full-year 2021of nearly 10% at the midpoint of guidance.
The Permian is forecasted to show robust segment profit growth, along with solid growth in Louisiana. The Permian is forecasted to exit full-year 2022 as EnLink's largest segment, excluding the impact of plant relocation costs. Oklahoma and North Texas are expected to be about flat compared to full-year 2021, excluding the temporary impacts of Winter Storm Uri in 2021.
Capital expenditures for 2022 are expected to be focused on highly-efficient well connect activity. The main expansion project, the previously announced "Project Phantom" is expected to cost approximately $80 million (of which $45 million is considered operating expenses for GAAP purposes in 2022), representing savings of approximately 50% over illustrative new-build costs.
2022 is forecasted to mark the third consecutive year of FCFAD in excess of $300 million at the midpoint of guidance. FCFAD is forecasted to be roughly flat over full-year 2021 as significant adjusted EBITDA growth is offset by modest increases in capital expenditures and distributions.

 

Segment Updates

 

Permian:

 

Segment profit of $73.8 million for the fourth quarter of 2021 was approximately 7% higher as compared to the third quarter of 2021 and approximately 60% higher as compared to the fourth quarter of 2020. Segment profit included $0.1 million and $8.8 million of operating expenses related to plant relocation expenses in the fourth quarter of 2021 and third quarter of 2021, respectively. Segment profit also included unrealized derivative gains/(losses) of $(4.7) million, $10.2 million and $(1.1) million for the fourth quarter of 2021, third quarter of 2021 and fourth quarter of 2020, respectively. Excluding plant relocation expenses and unrealized derivative activity, segment profit in the fourth quarter of 2021 grew approximately 16% sequentially and 66% over the prior year period.
Segment cash flow totaled $10.8 million for the fourth quarter of 2021, marking the sixth consecutive quarter of positive segment cash flow.
Average natural gas gathering volumes for the fourth quarter of 2021 were approximately 8% higher as compared to the third quarter of 2021 and approximately 28% higher as compared to the fourth quarter of 2020. Average natural gas processing volumes for the fourth quarter of 2021 increased by approximately 7% sequentially and by approximately 25% as compared to the prior year period. EnLink continues to benefit from strong producer drilling activity on its Permian footprint. Driven by continued producer activity in the Delaware Basin, EnLink reactivated the Tiger natural gas processing facility in December 2021.
EnLink continues to meet incremental customer activity needs through a capital light approach. During the second half of 2021, EnLink completed Project War Horse and an associated expansion, adding 95 MMcf/d of processing capacity in the Midland Basin. Project Phantom, which will add 200 MMcf/d of processing capacity in the Midland Basin, remains on schedule to be completed during the fourth quarter of 2022 and is expected to achieve an EBITDA multiple of less than 4x.

Average crude oil gathering volumes for the fourth quarter of 2021 decreased by approximately 5% as compared to the third quarter of 2021, but were approximately 25% higher as compared to the fourth quarter of 2020. The sequential decrease was primarily driven by the timing of producer completion activity, while the year-over-year increase was driven by increased drilling activity.
Segment profit for 2022 is expected to range from $300 million to $340 million, with growth over full-year 2021 expected to be driven primarily by strong producer activity in the Midland Basin. Excluding approximately $40 million of Project Phantom expenses, the Permian is expected to exit 2022 as the largest segment.
Given the costs related to Project Phantom and the pace of well connects projected for EnLink's Permian system, EnLink expects to allocate approximately 55% of total capital expenditures in 2022 to Permian projects. This includes costs related to Project Phantom, the majority of which are treated as operating expenses for GAAP purposes.

 

Louisiana:

 

Segment profit of $111.7 million for the fourth quarter of 2021 was approximately 75% higher as compared to the third quarter of 2021 and approximately 38% higher as compared to the fourth quarter of 2020. Segment profit included unrealized derivative gains/(losses) of $19.3 million, $(8.8) million and $1.3 million for the fourth quarter of 2021, third quarter of 2021 and fourth quarter of 2020, respectively. The majority of the unrealized derivative activity in the fourth quarter of 2021 was associated with gas and NGL storage operations. Excluding unrealized derivative activity, segment profit in the fourth quarter of 2021 grew approximately 27% sequentially and 16% over the prior year period.
Segment cash flow for the fourth quarter of 2021 was $107.8 million, which marked the highest quarterly Louisiana segment cash flow in EnLink's history.
Average natural gas transportation volumes for the fourth quarter of 2021 were approximately 16% higher as compared to the third quarter of 2021 and approximately 12% higher as compared to the fourth quarter of 2020.
Average NGL fractionation volumes for the fourth quarter of 2021 were approximately 13% higher as compared to the third quarter of 2021, and 7% higher as compared to the fourth quarter of 2020.
Average crude volumes handled in EnLink's Ohio River Valley system for the fourth quarter of 2021 were approximately 11% lower as compared to the third quarter of 2021 and 17% lower as compared to the fourth quarter of 2020.
Segment profit for 2022 is forecasted to range from $350 million to $360 million, which implies approximately 9% growth over full-year 2021.

 

Oklahoma:

 

Segment profit of $99.4 million for the fourth quarter of 2021 was approximately 14% higher as compared to the third quarter of 2021 and roughly flat as compared to the fourth quarter of 2020. Segment profit included $1.5 million of operating expenses related to plant relocation expenses in the fourth quarter of 2021. Segment profit also included unrealized derivative gains/(losses) of $9.4 million, $(2.3) million and $(2.1) million for the fourth quarter of 2021, third quarter of 2021 and fourth quarter of 2020, respectively. Excluding plant relocation expenses and unrealized derivative activity, segment profit in the fourth quarter of 2021 grew approximately 2% sequentially and 10% over the prior year period.
Segment cash flow for the fourth quarter of 2021 was $86.1 million.
Approximately half of all wells scheduled to come on line during 2021 came on line during the fourth quarter, establishing strong momentum in volumes for 2022.

Average natural gas gathering volumes for the fourth quarter of 2021 were approximately 2% higher as compared to the third quarter of 2021, but approximately 2% lower as compared to the fourth quarter of 2020.
Average natural gas processing volumes for the fourth quarter of 2021 increased approximately 4% when compared to the third quarter of 2021, but decreased 2% compared the fourth quarter of 2020.
Segment profit for 2022 is projected to range from $335 million to $355 million, which is roughly flat compared to full-year 2021, excluding the impact of Winter Storm Uri. EnLink forecasts volumes for 2022 to again be roughly flat driven, in part, by an additional rig on the Devon/Dow JV acreage.

 

North Texas:

 

Segment profit of $56.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2021 was approximately 6% lower as compared to the third quarter of 2021 and approximately 9% lower as compared to the fourth quarter of 2020. Segment profit included unrealized derivative gains/(losses) of $(3.5) million, $(0.3) million and $(0.5) million for the fourth quarter of 2021, third quarter of 2021 and fourth quarter of 2020, respectively.
Segment cash flow for the fourth quarter of 2021 was $51.8 million.
Average natural gas gathering volumes for the fourth quarter of 2021 were roughly flat compared to the third quarter of 2021 and the fourth quarter of 2020.
Average natural gas processing volumes for the fourth quarter of 2021 increased by approximately 3% as compared to the third quarter of 2021 and were roughly flat as compared to the fourth quarter of 2020.
Segment profit for 2022 is expected to range from $225 million to $235 million. EnLink expects to benefit from new drilling activity in the basin by BKV and other customers.

Non-GAAP Financial Information

 

This press release contains non-generally accepted accounting principles financial measures that we refer to as adjusted EBITDA, free cash flow after distributions, and segment cash flow.

 

We define adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss) plus (less) interest expense, net of interest income; depreciation and amortization; impairments; (income) loss from unconsolidated affiliate investments; distributions from unconsolidated affiliate investments; (gain) loss on disposition of assets; (gain) loss on extinguishment of debt; unit-based compensation; income tax expense (benefit); unrealized (gain) loss on commodity swaps; costs associated with the relocation of processing facilities; accretion expense associated with asset retirement obligations; transaction costs; (non-cash rent); and (non-controlling interest share of adjusted EBITDA from joint ventures).

We define free cash flow after distributions as adjusted EBITDA, net to ENLC, plus (less) (growth and maintenance capital expenditures, excluding capital expenditures that were contributed by other entities and relate to the non-controlling interest share of our consolidated entities); (interest expense, net of interest income); (distributions declared on common units); (accrued cash distributions on Series B Preferred Units and Series C Preferred Units paid or expected to be paid); (costs associated with the relocation of processing facilities); non-cash interest (income)/expense; (payments to terminate interest rate swaps); (current income taxes); and proceeds from the sale of equipment and land.

 

We define segment cash flow as segment profit less growth and maintenance capital expenditures, which are gross to EnLink prior to giving effect to the contributions by other entities related to the non-controlling interest share of our consolidated entities.

 

EnLink believes these measures are useful to investors because they may provide users of this financial information with meaningful comparisons between current results and previously reported results and a meaningful measure of the company’s cash flow after it has satisfied the capital and related requirements of its operations. In addition, adjusted EBITDA and free cash flow after distributions are both used as metrics in our short-term incentive program for compensating employees.

 

Adjusted EBITDA, free cash flow after distributions and segment cash flow, as defined above, are not measures of financial performance or liquidity under GAAP. They should not be considered in isolation or as an indicator of EnLink’s performance. Furthermore, they should not be seen as a substitute for metrics prepared in accordance with GAAP. Reconciliations of these measures to their most directly comparable GAAP measures are included in the following tables. See ENLC’s filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission for more information.

(1)Represents the forward-looking net income guidance of EnLink Midstream, LLC for the year ended December 31, 2022. The forward-looking net income guidance excludes the potential impact of gains or losses on derivative activity, gains or losses on disposition of assets, impairment expense, gains or losses as a result of legal settlements, gains or losses on extinguishment of debt, the financial effects of future acquisitions, proceeds from the sale of equipment, and repurchases of common units or ENLK Series B Preferred Units. The exclusion of these items is due to the uncertainty regarding the occurrence, timing and/or amount of these events.
(2)Net income includes estimated net income attributable to NGP Natural Resources XI, L.P.'s ("NGP") 49.9% share of net income from the Delaware Basin JV and Marathon Petroleum Corp.'s ("Marathon") 50% share of net income from the Ascension JV.
(3)Includes operating expenses incurred related to the relocation of equipment and facilities from the Thunderbird processing plant, in the Oklahoma segment, to the Permian segment that are not part of our ongoing operations.
(4)Includes (i) estimated accretion expense associated with asset retirement obligations and (ii) estimated non-cash rent, which relates to lease incentives pro-rated over the lease term.
(5)Non-controlling interest share of adjusted EBITDA includes estimates for NGP's 49.9% share of adjusted EBITDA from the Delaware Basin JV and Marathon's 50% share of adjusted EBITDA from the Ascension JV.
(6)Excludes capital expenditures that are contributed by other entities and relate to the non-controlling interest share of our consolidated entities.
(7)Represents the cash distributions earned by the ENLK Series B Preferred Units and ENLK Series C Preferred Units. Cash distributions to be paid to holders of the ENLK Series B Preferred Units and ENLK Series C Preferred Units are not available to common unitholders.

 

EnLink does not provide a reconciliation of forward-looking net cash provided by operating activities to adjusted EBITDA because the Company is unable to predict with reasonable certainty changes in working capital, which may impact cash provided or used during the year. Working capital includes accounts receivable, accounts payable, and other current assets and liabilities. These items are uncertain and depend on various factors outside the Company’s control.
