Pembina Pipeline Refinances $75 Million of Long Term Debt

    CALGARY, April 23 /CNW/ - Pembina Pipeline Corporation ("Pembina"), a
wholly owned subsidiary of Pembina Pipeline Income Fund (TSX: PIF.UN,
PIF.DB.B), announced today that it has obtained a commitment for a $75 million
non-revolving credit facility from a Canadian Chartered Bank. The credit
facility is for a term of 5 years at a fixed rate based on a spread above 5
year GOC bond rates to be determined at drawdown and which Pembina anticipates
will be approximately 6 percent. The commitment is subject to a number of
conditions including execution of a definitive credit agreement by April 30,
2009. The net proceeds of the credit facility are to be used for the
refinancing of $75 million floating rate notes coming due on June 22, 2009,
and may also be used for general corporate purposes at Pembina's discretion.
    Peter Robertson, Pembina's Vice President Finance & CFO stated "This
transaction is evidence of Pembina's ability to access the capital markets at
attractive rates during times of uncertainty, ensuring the corporation retains
the financial flexibility it requires to execute its business plan."
