For the year, ongoing DCF was $1.53 billion, a $235 million increase from $1.30 billion in 2016. Distributions per limited partner unit paid in 2017 were $2.83, compared with $2.63 per limited partner unit in 2016. The full year distribution coverage ratio was 1.2x.

 

For the quarter, ongoing earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) were $532 million, compared with $510 million in the prior-year quarter. For the year, ongoing EBITDA was $2.18 billion, compared to $1.87 billion in 2016.

SEGMENT RESULTS

 

U.S. Transmission

 

Ongoing EBITDA from U.S. Transmission was $507 million in fourth quarter 2017, compared with $466 million in fourth quarter 2016. Fourth quarter 2017 results reflect increased earnings from expansion projects and slightly higher operating costs. As previously referenced, the 2017 ongoing quarterly results exclude $860 million attributable to the change in the federal income tax rate.

 

For the year 2017, ongoing EBITDA for U.S. Transmission was $2.01 billion, compared with $1.72 billion in 2016. The 2017 and 2016 ongoing EBITDA exclude special items of $21 million and $80 million in expenses, respectively, both related to the 2016 Texas Eastern pipeline incident. The 2017 ongoing results also exclude a special item of $860 million previously referenced and $34 million in expense, mainly from merger-related costs; primarily offset by a $106 million gain realized as a result of the deconsolidation and fair value re-measurement of our interest in Sabal Trail.
