Highlight of Business Operations:Operating revenues for the three months ended September 30, 2012, increased $1.7 million, or 1%, to $270.6 million, compared to $268.9 million for the three months ended September 30, 2011. The increase was due to $12.2 million of revenues earned by HP Storage and higher PAL and storage revenues of $5.4 million due to improved market conditions. The increase in revenues was partially offset by lower natural gas prices, which resulted in a decrease in retained fuel of $10.1 million, and a decrease of transportation revenues of $4.7 million from lower interruptible services due to a decrease in basis spreads between locations on the pipelines.
Operating revenues for the nine months ended September 30, 2012, increased $17.4 million, or 2%, to $859.3 million, compared to $841.9 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2011. The increase was due to $36.9 million of revenues earned by HP Storage, higher PAL and storage revenues of $9.6 million, resulting from improved market conditions, and higher firm transportation revenues of $3.4 million due to contractual capacity increases. The increase in revenues was partially offset by a decrease in retained fuel of $33.2 million primarily due to lower natural gas prices, and lower interruptible transportation service revenues due to a decrease in basis spreads between locations on the pipelines.
