MPLX LP: MPLX LP begins operations at Hidalgo Complex in the Delaware Basin

FINDLAY, Ohio, May 19, 2016 - MPLX LP (NYSE: MPLX) today announced that its
wholly owned subsidiary, MarkWest Energy Partners, L.P., this month began
operations of its Hidalgo Complex in the Delaware Basin to support Cimarex
Energy and Chevron U.S.A. The Hidalgo Complex, a 200 million
cubic-feet-per-day cryogenic gas processing facility in Culberson County,
Texas, is already running at approximately 60 percent utilization, less than
two weeks after it began operations.
One of the largest gas processors in the United States, MPLX now operates
approximately 7.5 billion cubic feet per day (Bcf/d) of total processing
capacity. Nearly 1.5 Bcf/d of MPLX's processing capacity is dedicated to
producer customers operating in Oklahoma and Texas.

"We are excited to expand our midstream presence in the Southwest and to begin
supporting producers in the Delaware Basin," MPLX President Donald C. Templin
said. "The Hidalgo Complex is backed by long-term, fee-based agreements with
strong customers who are dedicated to developing this exceptional resource in
West Texas."

For the full-year 2016, MPLX expects processed volume growth from its
Southwest operations to increase by approximately 15 percent. The majority of
this increase will be supported by the addition of the Hidalgo Complex, as
well as growing gas volumes from the Cana-Woodford Shale in Oklahoma and the
Cotton Valley formation in East Texas.
