Why DCP Midstream Won’t Resume Distribution Growth in 2017

DCP Midstream’s distributions

DCP Midstream Partners (DPM) is expected to keep its distributions flat for all of 2017, even after the simplification transaction. The partnership has declared a flat distribution of $0.78 per unit, or $3.12 per unit annualized, for the past several quarters.

This could be attributed to DPM’s low coverage ratio. In a related investor presentation, DPM noted that its sponsors, including Phillips 66 (PSX) and Spectra Energy (SE), plan to provide “$100 million IDR giveback annually through 2019, if necessary, to maintain at least a minimum 1.0x distribution coverage.”
