Item 8.01 Other Events

On November 11, 2011, DCP Midstream Partners, LP (the “Partnership”) received a claim for arbitration (the “Claim”) filed with the American Arbitration Association by Prospect Street Energy, LLC and Prospect Street Ventures I, LLC (together, the “Claimants”) against EE Group, LLC (“EE Group”) and a number of other parties that previously owned, directly or indirectly, our Marysville, Michigan facility (collectively, the “Respondents”). EE Group is an indirect subsidiary of the Partnership and was acquired by the Partnership in connection with the acquisition of Marysville Hydrocarbons Holdings, LLC (“MHH”) by the Partnership on December 30, 2010 (the “Acquisition”). The Claim involves actions taken and time periods prior to the Partnership’s ownership of EE Group and MHH, and includes several causes of action including claims of civil conspiracy, breach of fiduciary duty and fraud. As previously disclosed, the Partnership acquired a 90% interest in MHH from Dart Energy Corporation (“Dart”), a 5% interest in MHH from Prospect Street Energy, LLC and a 100% interest in EE Group, which owned the remaining 5% interest in MHH. The Claim seeks, from the Respondents collectively, alleged actual, punitive and treble damages and disgorgement of profits, as well as fees and costs. The purchase agreements for the Acquisition contain indemnification and other provisions that may provide some protection to the Partnership for any breach of the representations, warranties and covenants made by the sellers in the Acquisition.

At this point we cannot predict whether the Partnership will have any liability for the Claim. This proceeding is subject to the uncertainties inherent in any litigation, and the ultimate outcome of this matter may not be known for an extended period of time. The Partnership intends to vigorously defend this matter.
