                                POWER OF ATTORNEY
       For Executing Forms 3, 4 and 5, Form 144 and Schedules 13D and 13G

     Known by all these present, that the undersigned hereby constitutes and
appoints each of Jeffrey J. McParland and Paul W. Chung, or either of them
signing singly, and with full power of substitution, the undersigned's true and
lawful attorney-in-fact to:

(1)  execute for and on behalf of the undersigned (a) Forms 3, 4 and 5
     (including amendments thereto) in accordance with Section 16(a) of the
     Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and the rules thereunder, (b) Form 144 and
     (c) Schedules 13D and 13G (including amendments thereto) in accordance with
     Sections 13(d) and 13(g) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and the
     rules thereunder, but only to the extent each such form or schedule relates
     to the undersigned's beneficial ownership of securities of Targa Resources
     Partners LP or any of its subsidiaries;

(2)  do and perform any and all acts for and on behalf of the undersigned that
     may be necessary or desirable to complete and execute any such Form 3, 4 or
     5, Form 144 or Schedule 13D or 13G (including amendments thereto) and
     timely file such forms or schedules with the Securities and Exchange
     Commission and any stock exchange or quotation system, self-regulatory
     association or any other authority, and provide a copy as required by law
     or advisable to such persons as the attorney-in-fact deems appropriate; and

(3)  take any other action of any type whatsoever in connection with the
     foregoing that, in the opinion of each such attorney-in-fact, may be of
     benefit to, in the best interest of, or legally required of the
     undersigned, it being understood that the documents executed by the
     attorney-in-fact on behalf of the undersigned pursuant to this Power of
     Attorney shall be in such form and shall contain such terms and conditions
     as the attorney-in-fact may approve in the attorney-in-fact's discretion.

     The undersigned hereby grants to the attorney-in-fact full power and
authority to do and perform all and every act and thing whatsoever requisite,
necessary or proper to be done in the exercise of any of the rights and powers
herein granted, as fully to all intents and purposes as the undersigned might or
could do if personally present, with full power of substitution or revocation,
hereby ratifying and confirming all that the attorney-in-fact, or the
attorney-in-facts substitute or substitutes, shall lawfully do or cause to be
done by virtue of this Power of Attorney and the rights and powers herein
granted. The undersigned acknowledges that the foregoing attorneys-in-fact, and
their substitutes, in serving in such capacity at the request of the
undersigned, are not assuming (nor is Targa Resources GP LLC or Targa Resources
Partners LP assuming) any of the undersigned's responsibilities to comply with
Section 16 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.

     The undersigned agrees that the attorney-in-fact may rely entirely on
information furnished orally or in writing by or at the direction of the
undersigned to the attorney-in-fact. The undersigned also agrees to indemnify
and hold harmless Targa Resources GP LLC, Targa Resources Partners LP and each
such attorney-in-fact against any losses, claims, damages or liabilities (or
actions in these respects) that arise out of or are based upon any untrue
statements or omissions of necessary facts in the information provided by or at
the direction of the undersigned, or upon the lack of timeliness in the delivery
of information by or at the direction of the undersigned, to such attorney-in
fact for purposes of executing, acknowledging, delivering or filing Forms 3, 4
or 5, Form 144 or Schedule 13D or 13G (including amendments thereto) and agrees
to reimburse Targa Resources GP LLC, Targa Resources Partners LP and such
attorney-in-fact on demand for any legal or other expenses reasonably incurred
in connection with investigating or defending against any such loss, claim,
damage, liability or action.

     This Power of Attorney shall remain in full force and effect until the
undersigned is no longer required to file Forms 3, 4 and 5, Form 144 and
Schedules 13D and 13G (including amendments thereto) with respect to the
undersigned's holdings of and transactions in securities issued by Targa
Resources Partners LP, unless earlier revoked by the undersigned in a signed
writing delivered to the foregoing attorneys in fact. This Power of Attorney
does not revoke any other power of attorney that the undersigned has previously
granted.

     IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the undersigned has caused this Power of Attorney to be
executed as of the date written below.

                                          /s/ Laura C. Fulton
