    Hi, There is some incorrect info in the above video. The general partner is PAA not AAP. That could be a big deal for someone new to this. Also, from my research PAGP is listed to be a corporation for tax purposes not a MLP. Just wanted to make sure some facts got checked so you could present accurate info to your viewers. Otherwise, nice video.

    The general partner of PAA is AAP. AAP collects PAA's IDRs and holds a 2% equity stake. AAP sits inside of something called PAGP, so our new entity, Plains GP Holdings, has a 21.1% stake in THAT. So, effectively, Plains GP has a 21.1% stake in PAA's general partner, which is AAP. Clear as mud, I know.

    See the ownership diagram on pg 13 here:

    There are a lot of "general partners" embedded in this structure, I apologize if my description wasn't clear enough.

    <<Also, from my research PAGP is listed to be a corporation for tax purposes not a MLP.>>

    Yes, I mention this at 2:20. Still technically an MLP though.

    Thanks for watching,

    Aimee
