· Connected the 1,000th well to its integrated gathering and compression system since inception

Recent Developments:

· Extended credit facility maturity from 2022 to 2026 and elected to reduce commitments from $2.13 billion to $1.25 billion
· Published 2020 ESG report highlighting a focus on People, Performance and Purpose
o Strong safety record with a Total Recordable Incident Rate (TRIR) of 0.469, a 22% year-over-year reduction and a 62% reduction since 2016
o Continued reduction in methane leak loss rate to 0.015%, significantly below the ONE future industry goal of 1% and more than 50% lower than the midstream industry peer average of 0.033%
o 84% of total wastewater was gathered, recycled and reused in completions. 100% of fresh water used in completions was transported by pipeline.
§ In combination, this eliminated 32 million truck traffic miles and avoided 14,000 metric tons of CO2e
o Aligned executive compensation with ESG performance and established ESG Committee
o Reaffirmed 2025 environmental goals of a 100% reduction in pipeline maintenance emissions and moved towards incorporating elements of TCFD and SASB disclosure frameworks and standards into reporting practices

Paul Rady, Chairman and CEO said, "During the third quarter Antero Midstream continued to execute on its business plan, placing in service the Smithburg 1 processing plant adding 200 MMcf/d of incremental Joint Venture processing capacity. In addition, Antero Midstream continued construction on additional low pressure, compression and high pressure infrastructure to support the expected throughput growth from the Antero Resources and QL Capital Partners drilling partnership."

Mr. Rady further added, "We also recently published our 2020 ESG report. The report highlights our commitment to the communities in which we operate and our continued reductions in our methane leak loss rate. In addition, the report highlights Antero Midstream's unique positioning that directly impacts populations living in energy poverty across the world. In 2020, Antero Midstream provided integrated midstream services that allowed Antero Resources to ship approximately one-third of its LPG exports to developing nations, including the nations of Nigeria, Peru and India, improving people's health, safety and livelihood through the displacement of more expensive and more carbon-intensive energy sources."

Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Definitions

Antero Midstream uses certain non-GAAP financial measures. Antero Midstream defines Adjusted Net Income as net income plus amortization of customer relationships and impairment expense, net of tax effect of reconciling items. Antero Midstream uses Adjusted Net Income to assess the operating performance of its assets. Antero Midstream defines Adjusted EBITDA as net income plus interest expense, provision for income tax expense, amortization of customer relationships, depreciation expense, impairment expense, accretion, equity-based compensation expense, excluding equity in earnings of unconsolidated affiliates, plus cash distributions from unconsolidated affiliates.

Antero Midstream uses Adjusted EBITDA to assess:

· the financial performance of Antero Midstream's assets, without regard to financing methods, capital structure or historical cost basis;
· its operating performance and return on capital as compared to other publicly traded companies in the midstream energy sector, without regard to financing or capital structure; and
· the viability of acquisitions and other capital expenditure projects.

Antero Midstream defines Free Cash Flow before dividends as Adjusted EBITDA less interest expense and accrued capital expenditures. Free Cash Flow after dividends is defined as Free Cash Flow before dividends less dividends declared for the quarter. Antero Midstream uses Free Cash Flow before and after dividends as a performance metric to compare the cash generating performance of Antero Midstream from period to period.

Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Income, and Free Cash Flow before and after dividends are non-GAAP financial measures. The GAAP measure most directly comparable to Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income is Net Income. The GAAP measure most directly comparable to Free Cash Flow before and after dividends is cash flows provided by (used in) operating activities. Such non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered as alternatives to the GAAP measures of Net Income and cash flows provided by (used in) operating activities. The presentations of such measures are not made in accordance with GAAP and have important limitations as analytical tools because they include some, but not all, items that affect Net Income and cash flows provided by (used in) operating activities. You should not consider any or all such measures in isolation or as a substitute for analyses of results as reported under GAAP. Antero Midstream's definitions of such measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies.

Antero Midstream defines Net Debt as consolidated total debt less cash and cash equivalents. Antero Midstream views Net Debt as an important indicator in evaluating Antero Midstream's financial leverage.

All forward-looking statements speak only as of the date of this release. Although Antero Midstream believes that the plans, intentions and expectations reflected in or suggested by the forward-looking statements are reasonable, there is no assurance that these plans, intentions or expectations will be achieved. Therefore, actual outcomes and results could materially differ from what is expressed, implied or forecast in such statements. Except as required by law, Antero Midstream expressly disclaims any obligation to and does not intend to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements.

In addition, many of the standards and metrics used in preparing this release and the ESG Report continue to evolve and are based on management expectations and assumptions believed to be reasonable at the time of preparation but should not be considered guarantees. The standards and metrics used, and the expectations and assumptions they are based on, have not been verified by any third party. In addition, while we seek to align these disclosures with the recommendations of various third-party frameworks, such as the Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures, we cannot guarantee strict adherence to these framework recommendations. Additionally, our disclosures based on these frameworks may change due to revisions in framework requirements, availability of information, changes in our business or applicable governmental policy, or other factors, some of which may be beyond our control. The calculation of methane leak loss rate disclosed in this release conforms with ONE Future protocol, which is based on the EPA Greenhouse Gas Reporting Program. With respect to its pipeline emissions goal, Antero Midstream anticipates achieving a 100% reduction in pipeline emissions by 2025 through operational efficiencies and the purchase of carbon offsets.

Antero Midstream cautions you that these forward-looking statements are subject to all of the risks and uncertainties incident to our business, most of which are difficult to predict and many of which are beyond Antero Midstream's control. These risks include, but are not limited to, commodity price volatility, inflation, environmental risks, Antero Resources' drilling and completion and other operating risks, regulatory changes, the uncertainty inherent in projecting Antero Resources' future rates of production, cash flows and access to capital, the timing of development expenditures, impacts of world health events, including the COVID-19 pandemic, cybersecurity risk, and the other risks described under the heading "Item 1A. Risk Factors" in Antero Midstream's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2020.

This release and the ESG Report contain statements based on hypothetical or severely adverse scenarios and assumptions, and these statements should not necessarily be viewed as being representative of current or actual risk or forecasts of expected risk. While future events discussed in this release or the report may be significant, any significance should not be read as necessarily rising to the level of materiality of certain disclosures included in Antero Midstream's SEC filings. These scenarios cannot account for the entire realm of possible risks and have been selected based on what we believe to be a reasonable range of possible circumstances based on information currently available to us and the reasonableness of assumptions inherent in certain scenarios; however, our selection of scenarios may change over time as circumstances change.
