LEVIATHAN GAS PIPELINE PARTNERS, L.P. ANNOUNCES COMPLETION OF EWING BANK GATHERING SYSTEM

 HOUSTON, Aug. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Leviathan Gas Pipeline Partners, L.P. ("Leviathan") (NYSE: LEV) announced today that it had completed its Ewing Bank Gathering System. The new system consists of two 3-1/2 inch gathering lines, approximately seven miles in length, which originate at Tatham Offshore, Inc.'s Ewing Bank Block 914 No. 2 well and extend north to a production platform located on Ewing Bank Block 826, offshore Louisiana. At the British Petroleum Ewing Bank Block 826 production platform, the gathering system connects with a pipeline owned by Trunkline Gas Company.
 In initial flow tests which were completed early this morning, the Tatham Offshore Ewing Bank Block 914 No. 2 flowed at the rate of approximately 12,500 MMcf and 2,300 barrels of condensate per day. Tests were conducted through a 25/64 inch choke with stabilized flowing tubing pressure of approximately 4,400 psig. The well is being completed by means of a subsea tree and wellhead at a water depth of approximately 950 feet and should be on full production by the end of August. The well completion and gathering system were constructed by Deepwater Production Systems, Inc. for Leviathan under a $16 million turnkey contract. The completion of the Ewing Bank Gathering System is a significant technological and financial event for Leviathan and is estimated to provide Leviathan with approximately $6.5 million in operating revenue for the first full year of operation.
 "The completion of the Ewing Bank Gathering System continues Leviathan's goal of expanding gathering facilities to encourage additional development of important reserves in the Flextrend and Deepwater areas of the outer continental shelf," said Thomas P. Tatham, Leviathan's chief executive officer.
 "The successful subsea well completion and connection to Leviathan's gathering system has enabled Tatham Offshore to place a significant Flextrend discovery onto production substantially earlier than the timeline that would be required by the use of conventional production facilities," noted Don S. Taylor, chief executive officer of Tatham Offshore, Inc.
 Leviathan Gas Pipeline Partners, L.P. is a publicly owned partnership which was formed to acquire, own and manage offshore natural gas pipeline systems and related assets. With the addition of the Ewing Bank System, Leviathan has interests in seven fully operational natural gas pipelines located offshore Louisiana and Texas which transport natural gas production from the Gulf of Mexico.
