Explanation of Responses:
1. Pursuant to the Contribution Agreement dated October 21, 2013 by and among Plains GP Holdings, L.P. (the "Issuer"), PAA GP Holdings LLC and the other parties signatory thereto entered into in connection with the closing of the initial public offering of the Issuer (the "Offering"), PAA Management, L.P. ("PAA Management") received 21,835,922 Class B shares of the Issuer (the "Class B shares") in exchange for certain contributions to the Issuer and the general partner of the Issuer.
2. In addition, the limited partnership agreement of Plains AAP, L.P. ("AAP") was amended and restated to provide that each limited partner of AAP, including PAA Management, will have the right, at any time and from time to time, to immediately exchange (the "Exchange Right") its Class A Units in AAP (the "AAP Units"), together with a like number of Class B shares and units of the Issuer's general partner (the "GP Units"), for Class A shares of the Issuer (the "Class A shares") on a one-for-one basis. The Exchange Right does not expire and may be settled in cash at the option of the Issuer. As such, the Reporting Person may not be deemed to beneficially own the Class A shares reported herein. The number of Class A shares included in the table above represents the number of Class B shares owned by PAA Management that are exchangeable for an equivalent number of Class A shares. The Reporting Person is the general partner of PAA Management.
3. The Reporting Person may have been deemed to beneficially own the AAP Units prior to the consummation of the Offering. The AAP Units, collectively with the Class B Shares and the GP Units, constitute the derivative acquired as described herein.
