Media Advisory Magellan Midstream Partners, L.P.

Late last evening, Magellan experienced an anhydrous ammonia release on our 8" pipeline system near Tekamah, NE. We are sad to report that a local resident has passed away after exposure to anhydrous ammonia vapors.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the family.

Local authorities have evacuated several residents in close proximity to the release site and a local County road has been temporarily closed.

Magellan representatives, local emergency responders and environmental crews are currently on site. All appropriate federal and state agencies have been notified.

We are unsure of the cause of the incident at this time and will issue an update later this morning.
