CALGARY, ALBERTA--(CCNMatthews - April 27, 2007) - Inter Pipeline Fund (Inter Pipeline) (TSX:IPL.UN) is pleased to provide an update on the status of its acquisition of the Corridor Pipeline System (Corridor) from an affiliate of Kinder Morgan Inc.

Corridor is the sole transporter of diluted bitumen and related products produced by the Athabasca Oil Sands Project, a major oil sands mining and bitumen upgrading operation based in Alberta.

The rights of first refusal to acquire Corridor held by certain third parties were not exercised and have expired.

Should all final closing conditions be met, Inter Pipeline anticipates that closing will take place in mid-May 2007.
