Acquisition   The Hewitt segment
The Hewitt segment is a newly constructed 138-mile, 16-inch crude oil pipeline with 150,000 barrels per day of capacity. The purchase also includes a 40 percent undivided interest in two 150,000 shell barrel capacity tanks located at Hewitt Station.

The Hewitt segment originates at Plains Marketing L.P.’s Cushing, Oklahoma terminal and ends at Hewitt Station in Hewitt, Oklahoma. The pipeline began supplying crude oil to Valero’s refinery in Ardmore, Oklahoma in January 2017.

The Partnership funded the acquisition with cash on hand.

Concurrent with the acquisition, the Partnership entered into a 10-year throughput agreement with a subsidiary of Valero Energy Corporation.

Consistent with the Partnership’s existing portfolio of assets, the agreement includes a minimum volume commitment, a five-year renewal term, and no direct commodity price exposure.
