Energy Transfer Partners’ 1Q17 pro forma adjusted EBITDA rose to $1.414 billion from $1.412 billion in 1Q16—a marginal YoY increase of 0.14%. The YoY increase in Energy Transfer Partners’ 1Q17 EBITDA was mainly driven by a strong performance from its liquids transportation and services and midstream segments.
