  • PAA's failure to implement or capitalize, or delays in implementing or capitalizing, on planned growth projects;
  • declines in the volume of crude oil, refined product and NGL shipped, processed, purchased, stored, fractionated and/or gathered at or through the use of PAA's facilities, whether due to declines in production from existing oil and gas reserves, failure to develop or slowdown in the development of additional oil and gas reserves, whether from reduced cash flow to fund drilling or the inability to access capital, or other factors;
  • unanticipated changes in crude oil market structure, grade differentials and volatility (or lack thereof);
  • environmental liabilities or events that are not covered by an indemnity, insurance or existing reserves;
  • fluctuations in refinery capacity in areas supplied by PAA's mainlines and other factors affecting demand for various grades of crude oil, refined products and natural gas and resulting changes in pricing conditions or transportation throughput requirements;
  • the effects of competition;
  • the occurrence of a natural disaster, catastrophe, terrorist attack or other event, including attacks on PAA's electronic and computer systems;
  • tightened capital markets or other factors that increase PAA's cost of capital or limit PAA's ability to obtain debt or equity financing on satisfactory terms to fund additional acquisitions, expansion projects, working capital requirements and the repayment or refinancing of indebtedness;
  • weather interference with business operations or project construction, including the impact of extreme weather events or conditions;
  • continued creditworthiness of, and performance by, PAA's counterparties, including financial institutions and trading companies with which it does business;
  • maintenance of PAA's credit rating and its ability to receive open credit from suppliers and trade counterparties;
  • the currency exchange rate of the Canadian dollar;
  • the availability of, and PAA's ability to consummate, acquisition or combination opportunities;
  • the successful integration and future performance of acquired assets or businesses and the risks associated with operating in lines of business that are distinct and separate from historical operations;
  • the effectiveness of PAA's risk management activities;
  • shortages or cost increases of supplies, materials or labor;
  • the impact of current and future laws, rulings, governmental regulations, accounting standards and statements, and related interpretations;
  • non-utilization of PAA's assets and facilities;
  • increased costs, or lack of availability, of insurance;
  • fluctuations in the debt and equity markets, including the price of PAA's units at the time of vesting under its long-term incentive plans;
  • risks related to the development and operation of PAA's facilities, including PAA’s ability to satisfy its contractual obligations to its customers at its facilities;
  • factors affecting demand for natural gas and natural gas storage services and rates;
  • general economic, market or business conditions and the amplification of other risks caused by volatile financial markets, capital constraints and pervasive liquidity concerns; and
  • other factors and uncertainties inherent in the transportation, storage, terminalling and marketing of crude oil and refined products, as well as in the storage of natural gas and the processing, transportation, fractionation, storage and marketing of natural gas liquids.
