  • Plains All American Pipeline, L.P. (“PAA”) is a publicly traded master limited partnership (“MLP”) engaged in interstate and intrastate crude oil transportation, and crude oil gathering, marketing, terminalling and storage, as well as the marketing and storage of liquefied petroleum gas and other petroleum products (collectively, “LPG”). In addition, through our 50% equity ownership in PAA/Vulcan Gas Storage, LLC, we are engaged in the development and operation of natural gas storage facilities. We are one of the largest midstream crude oil transportation companies in North America, handling over 3.0 million barrels per day of physical crude oil through our extensive network of assets located in key producing regions and transportation corridors and gateways in the United States and Canada. Our crude oil and LPG operations can be categorized into two primary business activities: (i) crude oil pipeline transportation operations and (ii) gathering, marketing, terminalling and storage operations. PAA:05 As an MLP, we make quarterly distributions of our available cash to our Unitholders. Since our initial public offering in 1998, we have increased our quarterly distribution by approximately 53% to its current level of $0.6875 per unit, or $2.75 per unit on an annualized basis. It is our goal to increase our distribution to Unitholders over time through a combination of internal and acquisition-oriented growth. Our common units are traded on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol “PAA.” We are headquartered in Houston, Texas.

  • Chairman and President’s Letter Dear Fellow Unitholders: By far, 2005 was the most productive year in the history of Plains All American, which is no small feat given the Partnership’s record-setting performance in 2004. During the year, the Partnership met or exceeded each of its stated goals, significantly expanded its portfolio of internal growth projects, established a platform for future growth in the natural gas storage business and exited the year with a very strong capitalization. As a result of these accomplishments, we believe the Partnership is well positioned to generate attractive, consistent distribution growth over the next several years. 2005 Review At the beginning of each year, we establish very specific goals that motivate us on a daily basis to achieve long-term value creation for our stakeholders. Our goals for 2005 were to: 1 . Deliver operating and financial performance in line with guidance; 2. Optimize our field operations to eliminate inefficiencies and improve our ability to service our customers and, therefore, our competitive position; 3. Position the Partnership for continued growth by executing our organic expansion projects and pursuing our target of averaging $200 million to $300 million of accretive and strategic acquisitions; and 4 . Increase our distribution to Unitholders by 5% to 7%, without regard to future acquisitions. We accomplished these objectives and much, much more. Our operating and financial results significantly surpassed our initial guidance for the year. Excluding selected items impacting comparability, adjusted EBITDA and adjusted net income exceeded our original guidance by 46% and 83%, respectively, while adjusted net income per unit exceeded original guidance by 83%. These results were achieved on the strength of improved fundamental performance and the strategic positioning and counter-cyclical balance of our assets in a very volatile crude oil market. We also took a number of steps during the year to optimize our operations, improve our ability to service our customers and also improve our competitive position. These activities included completing the integration of acquisitions made in previous years, moving the headquarters of our operations group from Oklahoma City to Houston, realigning our trucking operations and upgrading our trucking-related information systems. Quantifying the impact of these activities is challenging, but we believe our recent results reinforce the success of these efforts. PAA:05 03
  • The Partnership successfully developed and executed on internal growth projects totaling approximately $149 million, expanding the scope set forth in our initial plan by 49%. We were also able to initiate, develop or advance a number of other internal growth projects for implementation in 2006 and beyond. On the acquisition front, we followed up on the significant acquisitions made in 2004 by completing seven acquisitions (including a joint- venture investment) in 2005 for aggregate consideration of approximately $165 million, generating a two-year and three-year average for acquisitions of approximately $360 million and $290 million, respectively. Notably, this joint-venture investment marked our entry into the natural gas storage business and is discussed in more detail on page 8 of this report. In last year’s annual report, we highlighted a strategic initiative to build an asset position capable of receiving foreign crude oil via the Gulf Coast. We are pleased to report that we made significant progress in implementing this initiative in 2005. Using our existing assets at Mobile, Cushing and other locations as well as assets leased from third parties, we increased the volume of our foreign crude oil purchases by over 300%, averaging 59,400 barrels per day A Special Thanks of foreign crude imports versus 13,500 barrels per day in 2004. We also positioned ourselves for further growth as the Partnership initiated construction of a 3.2 million barrel storage facility strategically located in St. James, Louisiana. With these building blocks in place, we A review of 2005 would not be expect solid growth in this area of our business in 2006 and beyond. complete without acknowledging the valiant and compassionate Our distribution growth also exceeded our initial guidance for the year as we raised our response of our employees to distribution in all four quarters of 2005, resulting in an aggregate increase of $0.30 per unit. the devastating hurricanes that Our November 2005 annualized distribution of $2.70 per unit represents a 12.5% increase over ravaged the Gulf Coast.

As a result, despite challenging stock of our employees braved perilous market conditions late in the year, 2005 was another rewarding year for our Unitholders. conditions to secure and preserve For the 2005 calendar year, the Partnership generated a total return to Unitholders of the integrity of our facilities, approximately 11.5%. While this total return is not as high as we have experienced in the while countless other employees past couple of years, it compares very favorably to the returns of our peers and major market worked tirelessly behind the indices.

During 2005, we made important strides in positioning the Partnership for future growth and success. Outlook for the Future We are indeed optimistic about the future of Plains All American. In order to define our near- term course and provide our stakeholders with the criteria to judge our performance, each year we establish and publish our annual goals for the year. Our goals for 2006 are similar in PAA:05 04
  • many respects to those we established in previous years. The consistency of our goals over the years is a reflection of management’s focus on fundamentals and sustainable long-term performance. Specifically, our five goals for 2006 are to: 1 . Deliver operating and financial performance in line with guidance; 2. Maintain and improve our present credit rating and further expand our liquidity and financial flexibility to accommodate future growth; 3. Optimize our existing asset base and operations and expand our inventory of internal expansion projects; 4 . Pursue our target of averaging $200 million to $300 million of accretive and strategic acquisitions; and 5. Increase our distribution paid to Unitholders in 2006 by 10% over 2005 payments. The midpoint of our published guidance for 2006 targets adjusted EBITDA* of approximately $365 million, which is approximately 45% higher than 2004 results of $252 million and $85 million, or 30% higher than the midpoint of our original guidance for 2005 of $280 million. You should note that the midpoint of our 2006 guidance is approximately 11% lower than 2005 actual results. This is a result of a less robust outlook for market conditions in 2006 as compared to the very favorable market conditions experienced in 2005. Our 2006 guidance also incorporates meaningfully higher assumptions with respect to utility, power and fuel costs as a result of a substantial increase in commodity prices. If the favorable market conditions we experienced in 2005 continue throughout 2006, we believe there is an upward bias to our 2006 guidance, but for planning purposes we believe it is prudent to assume more moderate conditions. Notwithstanding these more conservative assumptions, our guidance for 2006 indicates that we expect to have strong cash flow coverage of the current distribution as well as the capacity to increase the distribution in line with the targeted objectives and still maintain a healthy coverage ratio. As a result of our consistent distribution growth and a favorable response from the stock market, over the last several years we have been able to generate some very attractive total returns for our Unitholders. There are many factors that influence the way in which the stock market values MLPs in general and our unit price in particular. Many of these factors are beyond our control, including interest rates, views on the broad economy and alternative investment opportunities. For those reasons, we cannot forecast how the market will value PAA at any point in time. What we can do is strive to deliver solid operating and financial results and based on those results generate growth in our distribution. We are optimistic that we are well positioned to achieve our goals, and we are dedicated to delivering solid results to you, our Unitholders. For these reasons, we believe Plains All American continues to offer our investors an attractive and competitive total return proposition and we encourage you to monitor our progress and our results by visiting our web site at www.paalp.com. On behalf of Plains All American Pipeline and its 2,000 plus loyal and dedicated employees, we thank you for your continued support. Greg L. Armstrong Harry N.

  • Internal Growth Projects From our IPO in 1998 through 2004, the growth of Plains All American was principally driven by acquisitions. Beginning in 2005, we increased our focus on optimizing the performance of the acquired assets and expanding our network of transportation and storage assets to better serve our producer and refiner customers, which has translated into a meaningful expansion of our internal growth activities. The level of our internal growth capital expenditures increased from $38 million in 2002 to $149 million in 2005, which significantly exceeded our initial 2005 estimate of $100 million. To support the elevated activity level and position ourselves for future growth, we strengthened our project management capabilities in 2005 by creating and filling the position of Vice President of Engineering and significantly augmenting our internal technical resources. Due to the combined efforts of our commercial group and our technical staff, 2006 is shaping up to be another tremendous year for internal growth projects as we currently expect to spend approximately $230 million on such projects during the year. Perhaps more importantly, we have also developed a backlog of internal growth projects exceeding $300 million, excluding the $230 million slated for 2006. Although not all of the projects in our backlog will come to fruition, we believe that we have put in place the resources necessary to consistently identify, develop and execute the internal growth projects that our strategically located asset base affords us. During 2005, we made significant progress on another important internal growth project – implementing our strategic initiative to grow our foreign crude oil activities through our Gulf Coast assets. Using our existing assets at Mobile, Cushing and other locations, we were able to increase our purchases of foreign crude oil by over 300%, averaging 59,400 barrels per day in 2005 versus 13,500 barrels per day in 2004. Moreover, we positioned ourselves to further expand these activities by initiating construction of a 3.2 million barrel crude oil terminalling and storage facility at St. James, Louisiana. The project is expected to cost approximately $85 million and should become operational in mid-2007. We believe that our enhanced inventory of internal growth projects, combined with the solid foundation provided by our existing business activities, gives us the ability to continue to generate attractive operating and financial results and provides clear visibility for future distribution growth over the next several years. Our Mobile terminal (right) provides us with the ability to receive foreign cargoes of crude oil delivered by oceangoing tankers. PAA:05 07
  • Natural Gas Storage Investment One of the ways in which we intend to execute our business strategy is to prudently and economically leverage our asset base, knowledge base and skill sets to participate in energy businesses that are closely related to, or significantly intertwined with, the crude oil business. During 2005, we partnered with a subsidiary of Vulcan Capital, the investment arm of Supply Paul G. Allen, to form PAA/Vulcan Gas Storage, LLC, a 50/50 joint venture to develop and operate natural gas storage facilities. In September 2005, PAA/Vulcan acquired Energy Center and Demand Investments (“ECI”), an entity that owned two natural gas storage assets – an operating facility in Michigan (“Bluewater”) and a project under development in Louisiana (“Pine Prairie”) – for approximately $250 million. We believe ECI provides an excellent platform for future growth in the natural gas storage business. In the U.S., natural gas demand has outstripped domestic produc- Because of its fungibility and physical volatility, natural gas presents different logistical tion of natural gas. By 2030, the transportation challenges than crude oil. However, we believe the U.S. natural gas supply Energy Information Administration and demand situation will ultimately face storage challenges very similar to those that estimates that the U.S. will require exist in the North American crude oil sector. We believe these factors will result in an approximately 5.6 trillion cubic increased need and an attractive valuation for natural gas storage facilities in order to balance feet of annual net natural gas market demands. imports to meet its demand – nearly 1.6 times the 2004 annual We believe strategically located natural gas storage facilities with multi-cycle injection and shortfall.

PAA:05 08
  • Financial Strength and Liquidity Plains All American was one of the first MLPs in the sector to publicly define its financial growth strategy and target credit profile. Despite completing nearly $2 billion of acquisitions and expansion capital projects since 2001, we have adhered to our strategy, achieved an investment grade credit rating and now possess what we believe to be one of the strongest balance sheets in the large capitalization pipeline MLP sector. We believe that our customers feel secure in knowing that we have the financial strength and liquidity to meet their needs in all types of crude oil price environments. Our strategically located assets and ample liquidity provide us with the opportunity to capture upside oppor- tunities in certain types of crude oil markets and our financial flexibility enables us to aggressively pursue internal growth projects and acquisitions of meaningful size and scale. We are dedicated to prudently and conservatively financing our future growth. Aggressive Growth – Conservative Financing Total Book Capitalization Long-Term Debt/Total Book Capitalization (Dollars in Millions) 60% $2,282 $2,019 50% 40% $1,266 30% $1,021 $758 20% $534 10% 0% 2000 2001 2002 2003 2004 2005 During 2005, we strengthened our balance sheet and enhanced our liquidity. We expanded the size of our credit facility to $1 billion and increased the size of our hedged inventory facility to $800 million, extending the maturities on both facilities. We raised over $400 million in the public and private capital markets, with over 60% coming from equity issuances. These financings, combined with over $130 million of distributable cash flow that we generated in excess of our distributions during the year, enabled us to end the year with a long-term debt balance essentially the same as our year-end 2004 balance – despite spending $328 million on capital projects. In addition, we also ended the year with 100% of our long-term debt subject to fixed rates of interest, thereby minimizing our exposure to rising interest rates. As a result of these activities, we ended 2005 with the strongest capital structure and highest liquidity in our history. PAA:05 09
