TEPPCO PARTNERS, L.P. REPORTS THIRD QUARTER 2003 RESULTS

HOUSTON – TEPPCO Partners, L.P. (NYSE:TPP) today reported net income for third quarter 2003 of $30.5 million, or $0.36 per unit, compared with third quarter 2002 net income of $32.1 million, or $0.48 per unit. Net income for nine months ended Sept. 30, 2003, was $98.4 million, or $1.21 per unit, compared with $83.3 million, or $1.32 per unit on a diluted basis for nine months ended Sept. 30, 2002.

Net income per Limited Partner and Class B units for the 2003 periods reflects 12.9 million units issued subsequent to third quarter 2002, including 3.9 million units issued in April 2003 to repurchase the outstanding Class B Units. The weighted-average number of Limited Partner units outstanding for third quarter and nine months ended Sept. 30, 2003, was 60.5 million and 58.7 million, respectively, compared with 50 million and 47 million Limited Partner and Class B Units, respectively, for the corresponding 2002 periods.

EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization) was $78.6 million for third quarter 2003, compared with $78.5 million in third quarter 2002. EBITDA was $250.6 million for nine months ended Sept. 30, 2003, compared with $198.7 million in the prior year period. The 2003 results include the full period impact of the addition of the Val Verde Gas Gathering System, which was acquired on June 30, 2002.

"The Partnership continued to enjoy solid operating performance in each of its three business segments during the third quarter, with increased refined products, liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), crude oil and natural gas transportation volumes. Our slight decline in net income compared with the prior year quarter resulted primarily from increased costs associated with the Partnership’s pipeline integrity management program," said Barry R. Pearl, president and chief executive officer of the general partner of TEPPCO.

"Looking forward, we expect that the Partnership will achieve total year 2003 EBITDA in the range of $330 million to $340 million, with earnings in the range of $1.55 to $1.65 per unit," added Pearl.

OPERATING RESULTS BY BUSINESS SEGMENT

Upstream Segment
The upstream segment includes crude oil transportation, storage, gathering and marketing activities, and distribution of lubrication oils and specialty chemicals.

Operating income for the upstream segment was $5.9 million for third quarter 2003, compared with $8.4 million for third quarter 2002. The decrease resulted from higher environmental related operating expenses and depreciation expense, partially offset by increased transportation revenues on the Red River system and lower property tax expense.

For the nine months ended Sept. 30, 2003, operating income was $21.2 million, compared with $21.6 million for the corresponding 2002 period. The decrease was due to higher operating expenses, customer crude oil imbalance expenses recorded in first quarter 2003 and increased depreciation expense, partially offset by higher crude oil transportation revenues and a $3.9 million gain on the sale of assets during second quarter 2003. Gain on the sale of assets resulted from the sale of a portion of our interest in the Rancho Pipeline, which provided crude oil service from West Texas to Houston, and ceased operations in March 2003. In connection with the transaction, TEPPCO retained a 58-mile portion of the Rancho Pipeline extending from Sealy, Texas, to Houston.

Equity earnings from the investment in Seaway Crude Pipeline were $7.2 million for third quarter 2003, compared with $5.1 million for third quarter 2002. For the nine months ended Sept. 30, 2003, equity earnings from Seaway were $20.4 million, compared with $14.1 million for the corresponding 2002 period. The increase in equity earnings during the 2003 periods was due to increased long-haul transportation volumes and related revenues and lower operating expenses. Long haul volume on Seaway averaged 247,000 barrels per day in third quarter 2003, compared with 195,000 barrels per day for the 2002 quarter, and 201,000 barrels per day for the nine months ended Sept. 30, 2003, compared with 179,000 barrels per day for the corresponding 2002 period.

Midstream Segment
The midstream segment includes natural gas gathering services, and storage, transportation and fractionation of natural gas liquids (NGLs).

Operating income for the midstream segment was $21.8 million for third quarter 2003, compared with $19 million for third quarter 2002. The increase was due to lower amortization expenses of natural gas gathering contracts, decreased operating expenses and lower property tax expense. For the nine months ended Sept. 30, 2003, operating income was $59.9 million, compared with $38.5 million for the 2002 period. The Val Verde Gas Gathering System, acquired June 30, 2002, contributed $13.1 million to operating income during the first six months of 2003, and expansion of the Jonah system resulted in a $10.8 million increase in operating income. These increases were partially offset by lower NGL transportation revenues on the Dean and Panola systems.

Downstream Segment
The downstream segment includes the transportation and storage of refined products, LPGs and petrochemicals.

Downstream operating income was $17.6 million for third quarter 2003, compared with $19.7 million for third quarter 2002. The decrease was due to costs associated with our pipeline integrity management program and rental expense related to the capacity lease with Centennial Pipeline, partially offset by increased refined products and LPG transportation revenues. For the nine months ended Sept. 30, 2003, operating income was $63.5 million, compared with $61.9 million for the 2002 period. The increase was due to higher refined products and LPG transportation revenues, partially offset by increased pipeline integrity management costs, power costs and rental expenses.

The equity loss from unconsolidated investments was $1.4 million in third quarter 2003, compared with an equity loss of $2 million for third quarter 2002. For the nine months ended Sept. 30, 2003, the equity loss from unconsolidated investments was $2.6 million, compared with an equity loss from unconsolidated investments of $5 million for the corresponding 2002 period. The improved performance in the 2003 periods reflects equity earnings from the formation of Mont Belvieu Storage Partners, L.P., a venture with Louis Dreyfus Energy Services L.P., which was established effective Jan. 1, 2003, partially offset by increased equity losses from the investment in Centennial due to higher pipeline cleaning expense.

FINANCING ACTIVITIES AND OTHER INCOME

TEPPCO completed a public offering in August 2003 of 5.2 million limited partner units. The net proceeds totaled approximately $171 million. The majority of the net proceeds was used for revenue generating capital expenditures, including $65 million for the Jonah system expansion. Additionally, $38 million was used to repay debt on the revolving credit facility, $21 million was used for the upcoming acquisition of crude oil pipeline assets from Genesis Pipeline Texas L.P. and the balance for general partnership purposes.

Third quarter 2003 interest expense was $22.4 million, offset by capitalized interest of $1.9 million. Third quarter 2002 interest expense was $19.8 million, offset by capitalized interest of $1.4 million. For the nine months ended Sept. 30, 2003, interest expense was $67.8 million, offset by capitalized interest of $3.4 million. Interest expense was $53.4 million for the nine months ended Sept. 30, 2002, offset by capitalized interest of $4.5 million. The increase in interest expense in 2003 was due to a higher percentage of fixed-rate debt in 2003, which carried a higher interest rate than variable rate debt, $1.3 million of debt issuance costs written off in second quarter 2003 related to the refinancing of our revolving credit facility, and $0.8 million of additional interest expense in third quarter 2003 related to a discontinued portion of a cash flow hedge.

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

The Financial Highlights table accompanying this earnings release and other disclosures herein include references to EBITDA, which may be viewed as a non-GAAP (Generally Accepted Accounting Principles) measure under the rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). We define EBITDA as net income plus interest expense – net, depreciation and amortization, and a pro rata portion, based on our equity ownership, of the interest expense and depreciation and amortization of each of our joint ventures.

We believe EBITDA provides useful information to our investors regarding the performance of our assets without regard to financing methods, capital structures or historical costs basis. EBITDA should not be considered an alternative to net income, as an indicator of our operating performance or as a measure of liquidity, including as an alternative to cash flows from operating activities or other cash flow data calculated in accordance with GAAP. Our EBITDA may not be comparable to EBITDA of other entities because other entities may not calculate EBITDA in the same manner as we do. Reconciliations of EBITDA to net income are provided in the Financial Highlights and Business Segment Data tables accompanying this earnings release.

Information in the accompanying Operating Data table includes margin of the upstream segment, which may be viewed as a non-GAAP financial measure under the rules of the SEC. Margin is calculated as revenues generated from the sale of crude oil and lubrication oil, and transportation of crude oil, less the costs of purchases of crude oil and lubrication oil. We believe margin is a more meaningful measure of financial performance than operating revenues and operating expenses due to the significant fluctuations in revenues and expenses caused by variations in the level of marketing activity and prices for products marketed. A reconciliation of margin to operating revenues and operating expenses is provided in the Operating Data table accompanying this earnings release.
