Crosstex Acquires Treating and Dew Point Control Company

DALLAS, May 11 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Crosstex Energy, L.P. (Nasdaq: XTEX) (the Partnership) announced it has acquired Cardinal Gas Services, a division of Dallas-based Regency Gas Services. The acquisition will add nine gas treating plants to the Partnership's treating business segment, further extending the Partnership's leadership position as the largest operator of treating plants in the industry. As important, the acquisition includes 19 operating gas processing plants, significantly expanding the capability of the Partnership's treating segment in the rapidly growing business of wellhead gas processing for dew point suppression. Also included in the acquisition is a large amount of spare equipment which the partnership plans to rapidly redeploy. Closing of the transaction occurred on May 1.

"This acquisition is a critical addition to the Crosstex treating business, and further expands the capabilities of this rapidly growing business segment. With this, the Graco acquisition that closed in January, and 13 new plants under contract to complete, we will have 27 new plants in operation since the beginning of the year, up 36 percent from the 74 in operation at the end of 2004," said Barry E. Davis, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Crosstex Energy companies. "Most importantly, we can now extend our service capabilities by entering the dew point suppression business, which we believe will experience the same growth trends as amine treating as pipelines become more stringent with quality requirements and focus on managing the hydrocarbon dew point gas in their pipelines."
