Enterprise Products Partners L.P. (which we refer to as Enterprise Parent) conducts substantially all of its business through Enterprise Products Operating LLC (successor to Enterprise Products Operating L.P.) (which we refer to as Enterprise) and the subsidiaries and unconsolidated affiliates of Enterprise. Accordingly, in the sections of this prospectus supplement that describe the business of Enterprise and Enterprise Parent, unless the context otherwise indicates, references to Enterprise, us, we, our and like terms refer to Enterprise Products Operating LLC together with its wholly owned subsidiaries and Enterprises investments in unconsolidated affiliates. Enterprise is the borrower under substantially all of the consolidated companys credit facilities (except for credit facilities of certain unconsolidated affiliates) and is the issuer of substantially all of the consolidated companys publicly traded notes, all of which are guaranteed by Enterprise Parent. Enterprises financial results do not differ materially from those of Enterprise Parent; the number and dollar amount of reconciling items between Enterprises consolidated financial statements and those of Enterprise Parent are insignificant. All financial and operating results presented in this prospectus supplement are those of Enterprise Parent.
The notes are solely obligations of Enterprise and, to the extent described in this prospectus supplement, are guaranteed by Enterprise Parent. Accordingly, in the other sections of this prospectus supplement, including SummaryThe Offering and Description of the Notes, unless the context otherwise indicates, references to Enterprise, us, we, our and like terms refer to Enterprise Products Operating LLC and do not include any of its subsidiaries or unconsolidated affiliates or Enterprise Parent. Likewise, in such sections, unless the context otherwise indicates, including with respect to financial and operating information that is presented on a consolidated basis, Enterprise Parent and Parent Guarantor refer to Enterprise Products Partners L.P. and not its subsidiaries or unconsolidated affiliates.
