It had $4.1 billion of liquidity as of June 30, 2017. That includes borrowing capacity available under the company’s credit facilities and unrestricted cash.

EPD’s current outstanding debt translated into a net debt-to-EBITDA (earnings before interest, tax, depreciation, and amortization) multiple of 4.4x at the end of the second quarter of 2017. Its leverage has remained within the industry standard despite huge capital spending and the gradual increase in debt in recent years. That could be attributed to the corresponding increase in its adjusted EBITDA.
