The MLP is expected to initially own a minority interest in Devon's U.S. midstream business. This business includes natural gas gathering and processing assets located in Texas, Oklahoma, and Wyoming.

Devon expects the MLP to file a registration statement with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) in the third quarter of 2013. Subject to market conditions, an offering of partnership units in the MLP would follow registration with the SEC.

Devon will own the general partner of the MLP, all of its incentive distribution rights, and a majority of its common units following completion of the initial public offering. Devon expects to utilize proceeds from the sale of MLP common units to fund its continuing operations.

Devon Energy Corporation is an Oklahoma City-based independent energy company engaged in oil and gas exploration and production. Devon is a leading U.S.-based independent oil and gas producer and is included in the S&P 500 Index.
