FERC Tax Policy Revisions Expected to be Immaterial to Tallgrass Energy

LEAWOOD, Kan.--()--Tallgrass Energy Partners, LP (NYSE:TEP) announced today that it does not expect policy revisions governing recovery of income taxes released today from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) to have a material impact on the company’s revenues.

“While we are in the process of reviewing the FERC orders, it’s important to note that the bulk of TEP’s revenues come from REX and Pony Express,” said Tallgrass Energy President and CEO David G. Dehaemers Jr. “Both REX and Pony Express have negotiated rate contracts, and we expect the ruling would have little to no impact on these revenues. While TIGT and Trailblazer both have some recourse rate contracts, we expect the impact to be immaterial to Tallgrass given the relative size of those businesses.”
