|About: Targa Resources Partners LP (NGLS)|By:, SA News Editor

In an operational update, Targa Resources Partners (NGLS) says it expects Q1 adjusted EBITDA of ~$210M, up ~60% Y/Y, due to increased liquefied petroleum gas export activity, higher commodity prices and improved performance across NGLS' businesses.

NGLS sees adjusted EBITDA for FY 2014 at $820M-$880M, as the strength of the LPG export market and operational results since the first phase of its export expansion project allow it to expect a higher level of LPG export activity in 2014 than previously contemplated.

Analyst consensus had estimated Q1 EBITDA of $186M and FY 2014 EBITDA of $784M.
