Updated 2020 Outlook:

Given the recovery of curtailed volumes in the regions where ONEOK operates, 2020 net income and adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (adjusted EBITDA) are now expected to approach the midpoint of the ranges provided on April 28, 2020, of $500 million to $900 million, and $2,600 million to $3,000 million, respectively.

"Third quarter results were driven by curtailed volume returning to our system resulting in improved earnings," said Terry K. Spencer, ONEOK president and chief executive officer. "NGL volumes across all of our operating areas have exceeded pre-pandemic levels, and natural gas volumes processed in the Rocky Mountain region have exceeded 1.2 billion cubic feet per day. Volumes achieved in September were more in-line with our original pre-pandemic 2020 expectations.

"We remain focused on operating safely and environmentally responsibly," said Spencer. "Reliable service and value creation continue to guide our strategy as we evaluate the opportunities ahead of us."
