Western Midstream Announces Second-Quarter 2023 Distribution Increase and Earnings Conference Call

HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Today Western Midstream Partners, LP (NYSE: WES) (“WES” or the “Partnership”) announced that the board of directors of its general partner declared a quarterly cash distribution (“Base Distribution”) of $0.5625 per unit for the second quarter of 2023, or $2.25 on an annualized basis. This distribution represents a 12.5% increase over the prior quarter’s Base Distribution of $0.500 per unit. WES’s second-quarter 2023 Base Distribution is payable on August 14, 2023, to unitholders of record at the close of business on July 31, 2023. Additionally, WES is raising its expected 2023 Base Distribution guidance to at least $2.1875 per unit(1).

“Over the past year, our commercial team has generated substantial value for our partnership by executing multiple, long-term agreements that provide up to 950 MMcf/d of firm process commitments. These agreements are supported by significant minimum-volume commitments and provide us with greater certainty regarding future earnings. Coupled with our recent history of significant leverage reduction and unit repurchases, these accomplishments support an increase to the Base Distribution. Our Base Distribution is an important, recurring component of our balanced financial policy that entails returning value to stakeholders through debt reduction, distributions, and unit repurchases,” said Michael Ure, President and Chief Executive Officer.

The Partnership plans to report its second-quarter results after market close on Tuesday, August 8, 2023.
