Item 7.01 Regulation FD Disclosure.
DCP Midstream Partners, LP (the “Partnership”) has been informed by representatives of Spectra Energy Corp and its affiliates, or Spectra Energy, which owns 50% of the owner of our general partner’s general partner, that Spectra Energy expects to present, during its upcoming regularly scheduled fourth quarter earnings conference call and webcast, one or more of the Partnership’s financial measures in order to convey a more detailed discussion of Spectra Energy’s results of operations to its investors. Given its indirect ownership in our general partner, Spectra Energy includes in its financial statements some of our operating results with the results of its other operations. In order to be able to include such operating results in its consolidated financial statements, Spectra Energy is provided access to our financial data before it is publicly released by us.
We expect Spectra Energy to present one or more of our financial measures during its earnings conference call and webcast, which is in advance of the release of our earnings. Therefore, we have determined it appropriate to notify our investors of the date and time of the Spectra Energy fourth quarter earnings conference call and webcast. In that regard, Spectra Energy has announced that it will release its fourth quarter 2014 earnings results before the market opens on Wednesday, February 4, 2015, and will thereafter hold an investor and analyst conference call at 8 a.m. CT that same day. Spectra Energy has also announced that a webcast of the call will be available via the Investors section of its website at www.spectraenergy.com and the conference call will be accessible by dialing (866) 285-7461 in the U.S. or Canada or (706) 634-8942 internationally. The conference code is 47716328 or "Spectra Energy and Spectra Energy Partners quarterly earnings call." Spectra Energy requests that attendees call five to ten minutes prior to the scheduled start time.
Investment decisions in respect of the Partnership’s securities should take into consideration our fourth quarter 2014 earnings results to be announced after market close on Tuesday, February 24, 2015 and our previously announced earnings conference call and webcast at 10 a.m. ET on Wednesday, February 25, 2015, when our most recent results of operations and financial condition will be publicly available and can be considered in context.
