Section 7 – Regulation FD
        Item 7.01. Regulation FD Disclosure.

        On February 7, 2005, Enterprise Products Partners L.P. (“Enterprise”) filed a preliminary prospectus supplement for an offering of 10,000,000 common units representing limited partner interests. The prospectus supplement also includes a 30-day option granted to the underwriters to purchase up to 1,500,000 additional common units to cover over-allotments.

        On February 8, 2005, Enterprise management began making slide presentations to various investor groups. For the benefit of all investors, we have attached a copy of that slide presentation as Exhibit 99.1. The slide presentation utilizes the non-GAAP financial measures of gross operating margin and EBITDA (Slide 24). We define gross operating margin as operating income before: (i) depreciation, depletion and amortization expense; (ii) operating lease expenses for which we do not have the payment obligation; (iii) gains and losses on the sale of assets; and (iv) selling, general and administrative expenses. The GAAP measure most directly comparable to gross operating margin is operating income. A reconciliation of gross operating margin to operating income is presented on Slide 29. We define EBITDA as net income or loss plus interest expense, provision for income taxes and depreciation and amortization expense. The GAAP measure most directly comparable to EBITDA is cash provided by operating activities. A reconciliation of EBITDA to cash provided by operating activities is set forth below, and a reconciliation of EBITDA to net income is presented on Slide 30. For information regarding the reasons why our management believes that presentation of gross operating margin and EBITDA provides useful information to investors with respect to our financial condition and results of operations, and the additional purposes for which our management uses gross operating margin and EBITDA, please refer to “Item 2.02 Results of Operations and Financial Condition — Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures” in our Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on February 3, 2005.

        Also, Slide 25 presents selected pro forma financial information for the nine months ended September 30, 2004. The supporting documentation for this pro forma financial information is found in the preliminary prospectus supplement beginning on page F-1.
