DCP Midstream Presents Nearly $20,000 Dollars in National Scholarships


                            IN NATIONAL SCHOLARSHIPS

    Twelve Student Recipients Selected, Grants Reinforce DCP's Commitment to

                         the Future of Domestic Energy

DENVER, June 5, 2014 - The current growth in the U.S. natural gas sector means
more pipelines are needed and additional manpower will be required to maintain
them. Now, more than ever, a growing number of workers are needed to maintain
and expand the natural gas infrastructure across the country. For the sixth year
in a row, DCP Midstream (DCP), the nation's largest natural gas gatherer and
processor, is rewarding this next generation of energy workers and consequently
investing thousands of dollars to keep the country's energy infrastructure
strongly intact.

Each DCP Career and Technical Scholarship provides a $1,500 scholarship to full-
time students pursuing a degree or career in the natural gas industry at an
accredited two-year college or technical institution of their choice.

"According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, natural gas production
in the Americas is set to grow by 56 percent in the next 25 years," said Chris
Lewis, GVP and chief corporate officer. "We are committed to securing domestic
energy for the country, and this means investing not only in the infrastructure,
but in the people needed to operate that infrastructure. These students will be
doing important work when they get out into the field - literally keeping the
country moving forward through energy production."

Scholarship winners must be pursuing an associate degree or career-technical
certification related to the natural gas industry such as, but not limited to:
machine tool technology; diesel power and heavy equipment technology; plant
operations; gas technology and industrial electricity. Recipients are not
required to apply at DCP upon completion of their studies, nor will they receive
an advantage if they apply to DCP in the future.

The 2014 recipients of the Career and Technical Scholarship Program are:

Naomi Boyington, studying process technology at Remington College in Mobile,

Zachary Copeland, studying diesel power and heavy equipment technology at
Oklahoma State University Institute of Technology in Okmulgee, Oklahoma.

Sheila Dismuke, studying process technology at Remington College in Mobile,

Sterling Dixon, studying process technology at Remington College in Mobile,

Richard Floyd, studying compression and gas technology and diesel at Oklahoma

William Spanial, studying welding at Panola College in Carthage, Texas.

Taggart Swafford, studying welding at Tulsa Welding School in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Steffan Werner, studying corrosion and cathodic protection at Seward County
Community College in Liberal, Kansas.

Since 2009, DCP has awarded more than 60 scholarships for a total of more than
$100,000 dollars in grant money to deserving students. Scholarships are
renewable for one additional year and are awarded on academic achievement,
demonstrated leadership and participation in school and community activities,
among other qualifications.

"DCP is responsible for more than 67,000 miles of pipeline across the U.S.
That's the equivalent of traveling between New York City and Los Angeles 11
times," Lewis said. "What the nation demands of the men and women working to
maintain our energy infrastructure is no small task and we are thrilled to play
a supporting role in contributing to these future energy stewards."
