Forward-Looking Statements

All statements included in this prospectus, other than statements of historical fact, are forward-looking statements, including but not limited to statements incorporating the words "anticipate," "believe," "estimate," "expect," "plan," "intend" and "forecast," as well as similar expressions and statements regarding PAGP's or PAA's business strategy, plans and objectives for future operations. The absence of such words, expressions or statements, however, does not mean that the statements are not forward-looking. Any such forward-looking statements reflect our current views with respect to future events, based on what we believe are reasonable assumptions. Certain factors could cause actual results or outcomes to differ materially from the results or outcomes anticipated in the forward-looking statements. The most important of these factors include, but are not limited to:

  • PAGP's ability to pay distributions to its Class A shareholders;
  • PAGP's expected receipt of, and amounts of, distributions from Plains AAP, L.P.;
  • PAA's failure to implement or capitalize, or delays in implementing or capitalizing, on planned internal growth projects;
  • unanticipated changes in crude oil market structure, grade differentials and volatility (or lack thereof);
  • the availability of, and PAA's ability to consummate, acquisition or combination opportunities;
  • PAA's successful integration and future performance of acquired assets or businesses and the risks associated with operating in lines of business that are distinct and separate from its historical operations;
  • the occurrence of a natural disaster, catastrophe, terrorist attack or other event, including attacks on PAA's electronic and computer systems;

  • environmental liabilities or events that are not covered by an indemnity, insurance or existing reserves;
  • declines in the volume of crude oil, refined product and NGL shipped, processed, purchased, stored, fractionated and/or gathered at or through the use of PAA's facilities, whether due to declines in production from existing oil and gas reserves, failure to develop or slowdown in the development of additional oil and gas reserves or other factors;
  • shortages or cost increases of supplies, materials or labor;
  • fluctuations in refinery capacity in areas supplied by PAA's mainlines and other factors affecting demand for various grades of crude oil, refined products and natural gas and resulting changes in pricing conditions or transportation throughput requirements;
  • PAA's ability to obtain debt or equity financing on satisfactory terms to fund additional acquisitions, expansion projects, working capital requirements and the repayment or refinancing of indebtedness;
  • the impact of current and future laws, rulings, governmental regulations, accounting standards and statements, and related interpretations;
  • non-utilization of PAA's assets and facilities;
  • the effects of competition;
  • interruptions in service on third-party pipelines;
  • increased costs or lack of availability of insurance;
  • fluctuations in the debt and equity markets, including the price of PAA's units at the time of vesting under its long-term incentive plans;
  • the currency exchange rate of the Canadian dollar;
  • weather interference with business operations or project construction;
  • risks related to the development and operation of PAA's facilities;
  • factors affecting demand for natural gas and natural gas storage services and rates;
  • general economic, market or business conditions and the amplification of other risks caused by volatile financial markets, capital constraints and pervasive liquidity concerns; and
  • other factors and uncertainties inherent in the transportation, storage, terminalling and marketing of crude oil and refined products, as well as in the storage of natural gas and the processing, transportation, fractionation, storage and marketing of natural gas liquids.

Other factors described elsewhere in this website, or factors that are unknown or unpredictable, could also have a material adverse effect on future results.
