ONEOK Partners, L.P (OKS: Quote) Monday announced a public offering of 7.0 million of its common units, representing limited partner interests, subject to market and other conditions.

In addition, the partnership will concurrently sell 7.0 million of its common units to ONEOK, Inc. (OKE: Quote) in a private placement. ONEOK, Inc. and a subsidiary, which is the sole general partner of the partnership, currently own an aggregate 42.8 percent interest in the partnership.

ONEOK Partners expects to use the net proceeds from the common unit public offering and private placement to repay amounts outstanding under its $1.2 billion commercial paper program, to repay amounts on the maturity of its $350 million 5.9 percent senior notes due April 2012, for capital expenditures and for other general partnership purposes.

Barclays Capital, BofA Merrill Lynch, Citigroup, Morgan Stanley, UBS Investment Bank and Wells Fargo Securities are acting as joint book-running managers in the public offering. Deutsche Bank Securities, Goldman, Sachs & Co., J.P. Morgan and RBC Capital Markets are acting as co-managers.

The partnership is expected to grant to the underwriters a 30-day option to purchase up to an additional 1,050,000 units to cover over-allotments, if any. The private placement of common units to ONEOK, Inc. will not be subject to an over-allotment option.

When the common unit public offering and private placement are complete, ONEOK Partners will have 217.8 million units outstanding, which includes 144.8 million common units and 73.0 million Class B units. ONEOK, Inc. and a subsidiary, which is the sole general partner of the partnership, will increase their aggregate ownership interest in the partnership to 43.3 percent from 42.8 percent, assuming the over-allotment option is not exercised.

OKS closed Monday's regular trade at $61.23, up $0.21 or 0.34%, on the NYSE. In the after-hours, the stock lost $2.17 or 3.54%. Over the past year, the stock traded in a range of $43.05 - $61.02.
