SUNOCO LOGISTICS PARTNERS L.P.

NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

(UNAUDITED)

1. Basis of Presentation

Sunoco Logistics Partners L.P. (“the Partnership”) is a publicly traded Delaware limited partnership that owns and operates a logistics business, consisting of refined products and crude oil pipelines, terminalling and storage assets, and refined products and crude oil acquisition and marketing assets. The Partnership is principally engaged in the transport, terminalling and storage of refined products and crude oil and the purchase and sale of crude oil in 28 states located in the northeast, midwest, southeast and southwest United States. Sunoco, Inc. and its wholly-owned subsidiaries including Sunoco, Inc. (R&M) are collectively referred to as “Sunoco.” Sunoco accounted for approximately 2 and 7 percent of the Partnership’s total revenues for the three and six months ended June 30, 2011.

The condensed consolidated financial statements reflect the results of Sunoco Logistics Partners L.P. and its wholly-owned subsidiaries, including Sunoco Logistics Partners Operations L.P. and include the accounts of entities in which the Partnership has a controlling financial interest. A controlling financial interest is evidenced by either a controlling voting interest or a risk and rewards model that identifies the Partnership or one of its subsidiaries as the primary beneficiary of a variable interest entity (“VIE”). All significant intercompany accounts and transactions are eliminated in consolidation and noncontrolling interests in equity and net income are shown separately in the condensed consolidated balance sheets and statements of income. Equity ownership interests in corporate joint ventures, in which the Partnership does not have a controlling financial interest, are accounted for under the equity method of accounting.

The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements are presented in accordance with the requirements of Form 10-Q and accounting principles generally accepted in the United States for interim financial reporting. They do not include all disclosures normally made in financial statements contained in Form 10-K. In management’s opinion, all adjustments necessary for a fair presentation of the results of operations, financial position and cash flows for the periods shown have been made. All such adjustments are of a normal recurring nature. The Partnership expects the interim increase in quantities of inventory to significantly decline by year end and therefore, has adjusted its interim LIFO calculation to produce a reasonable matching of the most recently incurred costs with current revenues. Results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2011 are not necessarily indicative of results for the full year 2011.

2. Acquisitions

In May 2011, the Partnership acquired an 83.8 percent equity interest in Inland Corporation (“Inland”), which is the owner of 350 miles of active refined products pipelines in Ohio. The pipeline connects three refineries in Ohio to terminals and major markets in Ohio. The Partnership acquired its equity interest for approximately $99 million, net of cash received, through a purchase of a 27.0 percent equity interest from Shell Oil Company (“Shell”) and a 56.8 percent equity interest from Sunoco. The 56.8 percent equity interest acquired from Sunoco is considered a transaction between entities under common control and therefore the assets and liabilities transferred have been recorded by the Partnership at Sunoco’s carrying value. As the Partnership now has a controlling financial interest in Inland, the joint venture is reflected as a consolidated subsidiary of the Partnership from the date of the final acquisition and is included within the Refined Products Pipeline segment. The purchase was ultimately financed with a portion of the net proceeds from the Senior Notes offering in July 2011 (see Note 8).

The following information summarizes the estimated effects of the acquisition on the Partnership’s balance sheet as of the acquisition date:

In June 2011, the Partnership announced the agreement to acquire a refined products terminal, located in East Boston, Massachusetts from affiliates of ConocoPhillips for $56 million plus inventory. The terminal is the sole service provider of Logan International Airport under a long-term contract. The acquisition is expected to close within the third quarter 2011 and will be included within the Terminal Facilities segment as of the acquisition date.

In July 2011, the Partnership acquired the Eagle Point tank farm and related assets from Sunoco for $100 million. The tank farm is located in Westville, New Jersey and consists of approximately 5 million barrels of active storage for clean products and dark oils. The acquisition was funded by the issuance of $98 million of deferred distribution units to Sunoco, which represent a new class of units on which no distributions are paid, and an additional $2 million general partner interest. The new units convert to common units on the one-year anniversary of their issuance. The acquisition will be included within the Terminal Facilities segment as of the acquisition date.

In August 2011, the Partnership acquired a crude oil purchasing and marketing business from Texon L.P. (“Texon”) for $205 million plus the fair market value of its crude oil inventory. The purchase consists of a lease crude business and gathering assets in 16 states, primarily in the western United States. The current crude oil volume of the business is approximately 75,000 barrels per day at the wellhead. The purchase was financed with a portion of the net proceeds from the Senior Notes offering in July 2011 (see Note 8). The acquisition will be included within the Crude Oil Pipeline segment as of the acquisition date.

3. Related Party Transactions

Incentive Distribution Rights Exchange

In January 2010, the Partnership entered into a repurchase agreement with its general partner, whereby the Partnership agreed to the repurchase from the general partner the existing incentive distribution rights (“IDRs”) for $201 million and issue new IDRs. Pursuant to this transaction, the Partnership executed the third amended and restated agreement of limited partnership. This new partnership agreement reflects the cancellation of the original IDRs and the authorization and issuance of the new IDRs. The Partnership ultimately financed the transaction with a portion of the proceeds from the February 2010 issuance of the 5.50 and 6.85 percent Senior Notes.

Promissory Note from Affiliate

In July 2010, the Partnership acquired a butane blending business from Texon L.P. The acquisition was partially funded by a three-year, subordinated, $100 million note from Sunoco, which bears interest at three-month LIBOR plus 275 basis points per annum.

Advances to/from Affiliate

The Partnership has a treasury services agreement with Sunoco pursuant to which it, among other things, participates in Sunoco’s centralized cash management program. Under this program, all of the Partnership’s cash receipts and cash disbursements are

Table of Contents

processed, together with those of Sunoco and its other subsidiaries, through Sunoco’s cash accounts with a corresponding credit or charge to an intercompany account. The intercompany balances are settled periodically, but no less frequently than monthly. Amounts due from Sunoco earn interest at a rate equal to the average rate of the Partnership’s third-party money market investments, while amounts due to Sunoco bear interest at a rate equal to the interest rate provided in the Operating Partnership’s $395 million Credit Facility.

Administrative Services

Under the Omnibus Agreement, the Partnership pays Sunoco an annual administrative fee that includes expenses incurred by Sunoco and its affiliates to perform certain centralized corporate functions, such as legal, accounting, treasury, engineering, information technology, insurance, and other corporate services, including the administration of employee benefit plans. This fee was $5 million for the year ended December 31, 2010. The fee increased to $13 million for 2011 to cover shared management costs, including senior executives, which were previously recorded as a direct expense by the Partnership. The increase was also driven by a higher allocation of fees associated with corporate functions which were previously outsourced to third parties. This fee does not include the salaries of pipeline and terminal personnel or other employees of the general partner or the cost of their employee benefits. The Partnership has no employees, and reimburses Sunoco and its affiliates for these costs and other direct expenses incurred on the Partnership’s behalf. These costs may be increased if the acquisition or construction of new assets or businesses requires an increase in the level of general and administrative services received by the Partnership.

In addition to the annual administrative fee, selling, general and administrative expenses in the statements of income include the allocation of shared insurance costs. The Partnership’s share of allocated Sunoco employee benefit plan expenses, including noncontributory defined benefit retirement plans, defined contribution 401(k) plans, employee and retiree medical, dental and life insurance plans, incentive compensation plans and other such benefits are reflected in cost of products sold and operating expenses and selling, general and administrative expenses in the statements of income.

Affiliated Revenues and Accounts Receivable, Affiliated Companies

The Partnership is party to various agreements with Sunoco to supply refined products and to provide pipeline and terminalling services. Affiliated revenues in the statements of income consist of sales of refined products and crude oil as well as the related provision, and services including pipeline transportation, terminalling, and storage and blending to Sunoco. Prior to March 2011, affiliated revenues included sales of crude oil to Sunoco, which were priced using market based rates. Sales of refined product are priced using market based rates under agreements which are negotiated annually. Service revenues are recognized based on published tariffs or negotiated rates under agreements.

In March 2011, Sunoco completed the sale of its Toledo refinery to affiliates of PBF Holding Company LLC (“PBF”). Certain of the Partnership’s agreements with Sunoco to supply or purchase crude oil and provide pipeline and terminalling services to support the Toledo refinery have been assigned to PBF or its agents in connection with the sale. The sale of the refinery is not expected to have a material impact on the Partnership’s financial results.

Acquisitions

In May 2011, the Partnership acquired a controlling financial interest in Inland from Sunoco. The Partnership acquired its equity interest for approximately $99 million, net of cash received, through a purchase of a 27.0 percent equity interest from Shell and a 56.8 percent equity interest from Sunoco. The purchase price paid to Sunoco in connection with its 56.8 percent equity interest was approximately $73 million.

4. Net Income Per Unit Data

The general partner’s interest in net income attributable to Sunoco Logistics Partners L.P. (“net income attributable to the Partnership”) consists of its 2 percent general partner interest and “incentive distributions,” which are increasing percentages, up to 50 percent of quarterly distributions in excess of $0.50 per limited partner unit (see Note 11). The general partner was allocated net income attributable to the Partnership of $14 and $11 million (representing 15 and 22 percent of total net income attributable to the Partnership) for the three months ended June 30, 2011 and 2010, respectively and $26 and $21 million (representing 18 and 22 percent of total net income attributable to the Partnership) for the six months ended June 30, 2011 and 2010, respectively. Diluted net income attributable to the Partnership per limited partner unit is calculated by dividing limited partners’ interest in net income by the sum of the weighted average number of limited partnership units outstanding and the dilutive effect of incentive unit awards (see Note 12), calculated using the treasury stock method.

The following table sets forth the reconciliation of the weighted average number of limited partner units used to compute basic net income attributable to the Partnership per limited partner unit to those used to compute diluted net income attributable to the Partnership per limited partner unit for the three and six months ended June 30, 2011 and 2010:

The increase in the Partnership’s inventory during 2011 was primarily associated with contango inventory positions, which are expected to be significantly reduced by year-end.

6. Income Taxes

The Partnership is not a taxable entity for U.S. federal income tax purposes, or for the majority of states that impose income taxes. However, there are some states in which the Partnership operates where it is subject to both state and local income taxes. Substantially all of the income tax expense and income tax accruals reflected in the condensed consolidated financial statements relate to the consolidation of Mid-Valley Pipeline Company (“Mid-Valley”), West Texas Gulf Pipe Line Company (“West Texas Gulf”) and Inland, all of which are subject to income taxes for federal and state purposes. The Partnership also has deferred tax balances related to the difference between the book and tax bases of the assets and liabilities of Mid-Valley, West Texas Gulf and Inland.

7. Investment in Affiliates

The Partnership’s corporate joint ventures own and operate refined products and crude oil pipeline systems. The Partnership’s ownership percentages in and method of accounting for these corporate joint ventures as of and for the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2011 and 2010 were as follows:

Senior Notes

In July, 2011 the Operating Partnership issued $300 million of 4.65 percent Senior Notes and $300 million of 6.10 percent Senior Notes (the “2022 and 2042 Senior Notes”), due February 2022 and February 2042, respectively. The net proceeds of $595 million from the 2022 and 2042 Senior Notes were used to pay down outstanding borrowings under the $63 and $395 million revolving credit facilities, which were used to fund the acquisitions of a controlling financial interest in Inland and the Texon crude oil purchasing and marketing business, and for general partnership purposes.

9. Commitments and Contingent Liabilities

The Partnership is subject to numerous federal, state and local laws which regulate the discharge of materials into the environment or that otherwise relate to the protection of the environment. These laws and regulations can result in liabilities and loss contingencies for remediation at the Partnership’s facilities and at third-party or formerly owned sites. At June 30, 2011 and December 31, 2010, there were accrued liabilities for environmental remediation in the condensed consolidated balance sheets of $4 million. The accrued liabilities for environmental remediation do not include any amounts attributable to unasserted claims, nor have any recoveries from insurance been assumed. Charges against income for environmental remediation totaled $1 million and less than $1 million for the three month periods ended June 30, 2011 and 2010, respectively and $3 and $1 million for the six month periods ended June 30, 2011 and 2010, respectively.

Total future costs for environmental remediation activities will depend upon, among other things, the identification of any additional sites, the determination of the extent of the contamination at each site, the timing and nature of required remedial actions, the technology available and needed to meet the various existing legal requirements, the nature and extent of future environmental laws, inflation rates and the determination of the Partnership’s liability at multi-party sites, if any, in light of uncertainties with respect to joint and several liability, and the number, participation levels and financial viability of other parties.

Sunoco has indemnified the Partnership for 30 years from environmental and toxic tort liabilities related to the assets contributed to the Partnership that arose from the operation of such assets prior to the closing of the February 2002 initial public offering (“IPO”). Sunoco has indemnified the Partnership for 100 percent of all losses asserted within the first 21 years of closing of the IPO. Sunoco’s share of liability for claims asserted thereafter will decrease by 10 percent per year. For example, for a claim asserted during the twenty-third year after closing of the IPO, Sunoco would be required to indemnify the Partnership for 80 percent of its loss. There is no monetary cap on the amount of indemnity coverage provided by Sunoco. The Partnership has agreed to indemnify

 

12


Table of Contents

Sunoco for events and conditions associated with the operation of the Partnership’s assets that occur on or after the closing of the IPO and for environmental and toxic tort liabilities to the extent Sunoco is not required to indemnify the Partnership.

Sunoco has also indemnified the Partnership for liabilities other than environmental and toxic tort liabilities related to the assets contributed to the Partnership, that arose out of Sunoco’s ownership and operation of the assets prior to the closing of the IPO and that are asserted within 10 years after closing of the IPO. In addition, Sunoco has also indemnified the Partnership from liabilities relating to certain defects in title for the assets contributed to the Partnership; liabilities associated with failure to obtain certain consents and permits necessary to conduct its business that may arise within 10 years after closing of the IPO; liabilities relating to legal actions currently pending against Sunoco or its affiliates; and liabilities related to events and conditions associated with any assets retained by Sunoco or its affiliates.

Management of the Partnership does not believe that any liabilities which may arise from claims indemnified by Sunoco would be material in relation to the financial position of the Partnership at June 30, 2011. There are certain other pending legal proceedings related to matters arising after the IPO that are not indemnified by Sunoco. Management believes that any liabilities that may arise from these legal proceedings will not be material in relation to the financial position of the Partnership at June 30, 2011.

10. Equity

The changes in the number of limited partnership units outstanding from January 1, 2010 through June 30, 2011 are as follows:

 

     Units  
     (in thousands)  

Balance at January 1, 2010

     30,981

Units issued under incentive plans

     63   
        

Balance at June 30, 2011

     33,129   
        

In July 2011, the Partnership issued 1.3 million Class A Units to Sunoco in connection with the acquisition of the Eagle Point tank farm and related assets. The $98 million of deferred distribution units are a new class of units that will convert to common limited partner units on the one-year anniversary of their issuance.

11. Cash Distributions

Within 45 days after the end of each quarter, the Partnership distributes all cash on hand at the end of the quarter, less reserves established by the general partner at its discretion. This is defined as “available cash” in the partnership agreement. The general partner has broad discretion to establish cash reserves that it determines are necessary or appropriate to properly conduct the Partnership’s business. The Partnership will make quarterly distributions to the extent there is sufficient cash from operations after the establishment of cash reserves and the payment of fees and expenses, including payments to the general partner.

If cash distributions exceed $0.50 per unit in a quarter, the general partner will receive increasing percentages, up to 50 percent, of the cash distributed in excess of that amount. These distributions are referred to as “incentive distributions.” The percentage interests shown for the unitholders and the general partner for the minimum quarterly distribution are also applicable to quarterly distribution amounts that are less than the minimum quarterly distribution.

In January 2010, the Partnership repurchased, and its general partner transferred and assigned to the Partnership for cancellation, the IDRs held by the general partner under the Second Amended and Restated Agreement of Limited Partnership, as amended, as consideration for (i) the Partnership’s issuance to the general partner of new IDRs issued under the Third Amended and Restated Agreement of Limited Partnership and (ii) the issuance to the general partner of a promissory note in the amount of $201 million. In February 2010, the Operating Partnership issued the 5.50 and 6.85 percent Senior Notes. A portion of the net proceeds from this offering was used to repay in full this promissory note.

On July 26, 2011, Sunoco Partners LLC, the general partner of Sunoco Logistics Partners L.P., declared a cash distribution of $1.215 per limited partnership unit ($4.86 annualized), representing the distribution for the second quarter 2011. The $53 million distribution, including $13 million to the general partner, will be paid on August 12, 2011 to unitholders of record on August 8, 2011. The change in distribution “splits” resulted in a $6 million reduction of the general partner’s cash distribution for the second quarter 2011 as compared to the previous methodology.

12. Management Incentive Plan

Sunoco Partners LLC, the general partner of the Partnership, has adopted the Sunoco Partners LLC Long-Term Incentive Plan for employees and directors of the general partner who perform services for the Partnership. The LTIP is administered by the independent directors of the Compensation Committee of the general partner’s board of directors with respect to employee awards, and by the non-independent members of the general partner’s board of directors with respect to awards granted to the independent members. The LTIP currently permits the grant of restricted units and unit options covering an additional 0.4 million limited partnership units. Restricted unit awards may also include tandem distribution equivalent rights (“DERs”) at the discretion of the Compensation Committee.

During the first six months of 2011 and 2010, the Partnership issued 63 and 72 thousand units under the LTIP. The Partnership recognized share-based compensation expense of $4 million for the six month periods ended June 30, 2011 and 2010. Each of the restricted unit grants also have tandem DERs which are recognized as a reduction of equity when earned.

13. Derivatives and Risk Management

The Partnership is exposed to various market risks, including volatility in crude oil and refined product prices, counterparty credit risk and interest rate risk.

 

14


Table of Contents

Price Risk Management

The Partnership is exposed to risks associated with changes in the market price of crude oil and refined products as a result of the forecasted purchase or sale of these products. These risks are primarily associated with price volatility related to pre-existing or anticipated purchases and sales. Price changes are often caused by shifts in the supply and demand for these commodities, as well as their locations. In order to manage such exposure, the Partnership’s policy is (i) to only purchase crude oil and refined products for which sales contracts have been executed or for which ready markets exist, (ii) to structure sales contracts so that price fluctuations do not materially impact the margins earned, and (iii) not to acquire and hold physical inventory, futures contracts or other derivative instruments for the purpose of speculating on commodity price changes. Although the Partnership seeks to maintain a balanced inventory position within its commodity inventories, net unbalances may occur for short periods of time due to production, transportation and delivery variances. When physical inventory builds or draws do occur, the Partnership continuously manages the variance to a balanced position over a period of time. Pursuant to the Partnership’s risk management policy, derivative contracts may be used to hedge or reduce exposure to price risk associated with acquired inventory or forecasted physical transactions.

The physical contracts related to the Partnership’s crude oil and refined products businesses that qualify as derivatives have been designated as normal purchases and sales and are accounted for using traditional accrual accounting. The Partnership accounts for derivatives that do not qualify as normal purchases and sales at fair value. The Partnership does not utilize derivative instruments to manage its exposure to prices related to crude oil purchase and sale activities. The Partnership does utilize derivatives such as swaps, futures and other derivative instruments to mitigate the risk associated with market movements in the price of refined products. These derivative contracts act as a hedging mechanism against the volatility of prices by allowing the Partnership to transfer this price risk to counterparties who are able and willing to bear it.

While all derivative instruments utilized by the Partnership represent economic hedges, certain of these derivatives are not designated as hedges for accounting purposes. Such derivatives include certain contracts that were entered into and closed during the same accounting period and a limited number of contracts for which there is not sufficient correlation to the related items being economically hedged.

For refined product derivative contracts that are not designated as hedges for accounting purposes, all realized and unrealized gains and losses are recognized in the statement of income during the current period. For refined product derivative contracts that are designated and qualify as cash flow hedges pursuant to generally accepted accounting principles, the portion of the gain or loss on the derivative contract that is effective in offsetting the variable cash flows associated with the hedged forecasted transaction is reported as a component of other comprehensive income and reclassified into earnings in the same line item associated with the forecasted transaction and in the same period or periods during which the hedged transaction affects earnings. The remaining gain or loss on the derivative contract in excess of the cumulative change in the present value of future cash flows of the hedged item, if any (i.e., the ineffective portion), is recognized in earnings during the current period.

As of and for the periods ended June 30, 2011 and 2010, the impact of the Partnership’s hedging activities was not material to the condensed consolidated financial statements. The Partnership had open derivative positions of 3 million and less than 1 million barrels of refined products at June 30, 2011 and 2010, respectively. The derivatives outstanding as of June 30, 2011 vary in duration but do not extend beyond one year. As of June 30, 2011 and December 31, 2010, the Partnership had the following derivative asset and liability balances:

   $ 1      $ (4
                

Credit Risk Management

The Partnership faces counterparty credit risk as a result of our use of financial derivative contracts. The Partnership’s counterparties consist primarily of financial institutions and major integrated oil companies. This concentration of counterparties may impact the Partnership’s overall exposure to credit risk, either positively or negatively, in that the counterparties may be similarly affected by changes in economic, regulatory or other conditions.

The Partnership maintains credit policies with regard to its counterparties that management believes minimize the overall credit risk. The Partnership’s customers’ credit positions are analyzed prior to the extension of credit and periodically after credit has been extended. The Partnership manages its exposure to derivative counterparty credit risk through credit analysis, credit approvals,

 

15


Table of Contents

credit limits, and monitoring procedures. The Partnership does not have over-the-counter derivatives that are entered into with counterparties outside of regulated exchanges.

Interest Rate Risk Management

The Partnership has interest rate risk exposure for changes in interest rates related to its outstanding borrowings. The Partnership manages its exposure to changes in interest rates through the use of a combination of fixed- and variable-rate debt. At June 30, 2011, the Partnership had $365 million of variable-rate borrowings under the revolving credit facilities and promissory notes from affiliated companies.

14. Fair Value Measurements

The Partnership applies fair value accounting for all financial assets and liabilities that are required to be measured at fair value under current accounting rules, primarily derivatives. The assets and liabilities that are measured at fair value on a recurring basis are not material to the Partnership’s condensed consolidated balance sheets.

The Partnership determines fair value as the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. The Partnership utilizes valuation techniques that maximize the use of observable inputs (levels 1 and 2) and minimize the use of unobservable inputs (level 3) within the fair value hierarchy established by the Accounting Standards Codification.

The Partnership generally applies the “market approach” to determine fair value. This method uses pricing and other information generated by market transactions for identical or comparable assets and liabilities. Assets and liabilities are classified within the fair value hierarchy based on the lowest level (least observable) input that is significant to the measurement in its entirety.

The estimated fair value of financial instruments has been determined based on the Partnership’s assessment of available market information and appropriate valuation methodologies. The Partnership’s current assets (other than derivatives and inventories) and current liabilities are financial instruments and most of these items are recorded at cost in the consolidated balance sheets. The estimated fair value of these financial instruments approximate their carrying value due to their short-term nature. The Partnership’s derivatives are measured and recorded at fair value, based on observable market prices and other valuation methodologies. At June 30, 2011, the fair values of the credit facilities and the promissory note to Sunoco approximate their carrying value, as these borrowings bear interest based upon short-term floating market interest rates. The estimated fair value of the Senior Notes is based on quoted market prices. The estimated aggregate fair value of the Senior Notes at June 30, 2011 is $1.2 billion, compared to the carrying amount of $1.1 billion. The estimated aggregate fair value of the Senior Notes at December 31, 2010 was $1.2 billion, compared to the carrying amount of $1.1 billion.

15. Business Segment Information

The Partnership operates in three principal business segments: Refined Products Pipeline System, Terminal Facilities, and Crude Oil Pipeline System.

The following tables set forth condensed statement of income information concerning the Partnership’s business segments and reconcile total segment operating income to net income attributable to Sunoco Logistics Partners L.P. for the three and six months ended June 30, 2011 and 2010, respectively.

In May 2011, the Partnership acquired a controlling financial interest in the Inland refined products pipeline. As a result of this acquisition, the Partnership accounted for this entity as a consolidated subsidiary from the acquisition date. Volumes for the three months ended June 30, 2011 of 72 thousand bpd and the related revenue per barrel, have been included in the refined products pipeline throughput and revenue per barrel. From the date of acquisition, this pipeline had actual throughput of approximately 143 thousand bpd for the three months ended June 30, 2011. The amounts presented for the three month period ended June 30, 2010 exclude amounts attributable to this system.

In July 2010, the Partnership acquired additional interests in the Mid-Valley and West Texas Gulf crude oil pipelines, which previously had been recorded as equity investments. The Partnership obtained a controlling financial interest as a result of these acquisitions and began accounting for these entities as consolidated subsidiaries from their respective acquisition dates. Volumes for the three months ended June 30, 2011 of 717 thousand bpd and the related gross margin, have been included in the crude oil pipeline throughput and gross margin per barrel of throughput. The amounts presented for the three month period ended June 30, 2010 exclude amounts attributable to these systems.

Analysis of Consolidated Net Income

Net income for Sunoco Logistics Partners L.P. (“the Partnership”) was $96 million for the second quarter 2011 as compared with $51 million for the second quarter 2010. The $45 million increase is primarily related to expanded crude oil volumes and margins and an increase in operating income associated with the Partnership’s acquisitions and organic growth capital in 2010 and 2011. These increases were partially offset by higher depreciation expense and income tax expense related to acquisitions and organic growth capital.

Analysis of Segment Operating Income

The Partnership operates in three principal business segments: Refined Products Pipeline System, Terminal Facilities and Crude Oil Pipeline System.

 

27


Table of Contents

Refined Products Pipeline System

Operating income for the second quarter 2011 decreased from the prior year period due to lower pipeline volumes on the Partnership’s refined product pipelines in the southwest and unplanned refinery issues in the northeast. The decreased operating income was partially offset by results from the acquisition of a controlling financial interest in Inland Corporation in the second quarter 2011.

Terminal Facilities

Quarterly operating income was primarily related to increased contributions from the butane blending business acquired in July 2010 and higher tank rentals and fees at the Partnership’s Nederland terminal. These improvements were partially offset by lower throughput at the Partnership’s refined products and refinery terminals.

Crude Oil Pipeline System

Operating income for the second quarter 2011 increased from the prior year period due primarily to expanded crude oil volumes and margins, which benefited from market-related opportunities and the contango market structure. Operating income associated with the Partnership’s acquisitions of additional joint venture interests further contributed to this increase.

Net income for Sunoco Logistics Partners L.P. (“the Partnership”) was $146 million for the six month period ended June 30, 2011 as compared with $94 million for the six month period ended June 30, 2010. The $52 million increase is primarily related to an increase in operating income associated with expanded crude oil volumes and margins, which benefited from market-related opportunities and the contango market structure, and contributions from the Partnership’s acquisitions and organic growth capital in 2010 and 2011. These increases were partially offset by an increase in interest expense and tax expense associated with acquisitions and organic growth capital.

Analysis of Segment Operating Income

The Partnership operates in three principal business segments: Refined Products Pipeline System, Terminal Facilities and Crude Oil Pipeline System.

Table of Contents

Refined Products Pipeline System

Operating income for the six months ended June 30, 2011 decreased from the prior year period due to lower pipeline volumes on the Partnership’s refined product pipelines in the southwest and unplanned refinery issues in the northeast. The decreased operating income was partially offset by results from the acquisition of a controlling financial interest in Inland Corporation in the second quarter 2011.

Terminal Facilities

The improvement in operating income from the prior year period was primarily related to increased results from the butane blending business acquired in July 2010 and higher tank rentals and fees at the Partnership’s Nederland terminal. These improvements were partially offset by lower throughput at the Partnership’s refined products and refinery terminals, which were negatively impacted by unplanned refinery maintenance during the first quarter 2011.

Crude Oil Pipeline System

Operating income for the six months ended June 30, 2011 increased from the prior year period due primarily to expanded crude oil volumes and margins, which benefitted from market-related opportunities and the contango market structure. Operating income associated with the Partnership’s acquisitions of additional joint venture interests further contributed to this increase.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

Liquidity

Cash generated from operations and borrowings under our credit facilities are our primary sources of liquidity. At June 30, 2011, we had a net working capital deficit of $12 million and available borrowing capacity under the credit facilities of $192 million. Our working capital position reflects crude oil and refined products inventories based on historical costs under the LIFO method of accounting. The current replacement cost of all such inventories exceeded their carrying value at June 30, 2011 by approximately $153 million. Inventories valued at LIFO are readily marketable at their current replacement values. We periodically supplement our cash flows from operations with proceeds from debt and equity financing activities.

Capital Resources

Credit Facilities

At June 30, 2011 Sunoco Logistics Partners Operations L.P. (“the Operating Partnership”) had a five-year $395 million Credit Facility, which is available to fund the Partnership’s working capital requirements, to finance future acquisitions and future capital projects and for general partnership purposes. The facility, which is scheduled to mature in November 2012, had $234 million outstanding at June 30, 2011. This facility bears interest at the Operating Partnership’s option, at either (i) LIBOR plus an applicable margin, (ii) the higher of the federal funds rate plus 0.50 percent or the Citibank prime rate (each plus the applicable margin), or (iii) the federal funds rate plus an applicable margin.

The Operating Partnership also has a $63 million revolving credit facility, which is available to fund the Operating Partnership’s working capital requirements, to finance future acquisitions and future capital projects and for general partnership purposes. The facility, which is scheduled to mature in September 2011, had $31 million outstanding at June 30, 2011. This facility bears interest at the Operating Partnership’s option, at either (i) LIBOR plus an applicable margin or (ii) the higher of (a) the federal funds rate plus 0.50 percent plus an applicable margin, (b) Toronto Dominion’s prime rate plus an applicable margin, or (c) LIBOR plus 1.0 percent plus an applicable margin.

The $395 million and $63 million Credit Facilities contain various covenants limiting the Operating Partnership’s ability to a) incur indebtedness, b) grant certain liens, c) make certain loans, acquisitions and investments, d) make any material change to the nature of its business, e) acquire another company, or f) enter into a merger or sale of assets, including the sale or transfer of interests in the Operating Partnership’s subsidiaries. The $395 million and $63 million Credit Facilities also limit the Operating Partnership, on a rolling four-quarter basis, to a maximum total debt to EBITDA ratio of 4.75 to 1 and 4.5 to 1, respectively, which could generally be increased to 5.25 to 1 and 5.0 to 1, respectively, during an acquisition period. The Partnership’s ratio of total debt to EBITDA was 3.1 to 1 at June 30, 2011, as calculated in accordance with the bank covenants.

Senior Notes

In July, 2011 the Operating Partnership issued $300 million of 4.65 percent Senior Notes and $300 million of 6.10 percent Senior Notes (the “2022 and 2042 Senior Notes”), due February 2022 and February 2042, respectively. The net proceeds of $595 million from the 2022 and 2042 Senior Notes were used to pay down the outstanding borrowings under our $63 and $395 million revolving credit facilities, which were used to fund the acquisitions of a controlling financial interest in Inland Corporation and the Texon crude oil purchasing and marketing business, and for general partnership purposes.

Equity Offering

In July 2011, the Partnership issued 1.3 million Class A Units to Sunoco in connection with the acquisition of the Eagle Point tank farm and related assets. The $98 million of deferred distribution units are a new class of units that will convert to common limited partner units on the one-year anniversary of their issuance. In connection with this offering, the General Partner was issued an additional $2 million general partner interest to maintain its 2 percent general partner interest in the Partnership.

Cash Flows and Capital Expenditures

Net cash used in operating activities for the six months ended June 30, 2011 was $5 million compared with net cash provided by operating activities of $27 million for the first six months of 2010. Net cash used by operating activities in 2011 related primarily to a net increase in working capital of $194 million, partially offset by net income of $146 million and non-cash charges of depreciation and amortization of $37 million. The increase in working capital was primarily the result of the Partnership’s contango inventory positions and the associated effect on accounts receivable and accounts payable. The net cash provided by operating activities in 2010 related to net income of $94 million and non-cash charges of depreciation and amortization of $29 million, offset by a $97 million increase in working capital. The increase in working capital was the result of increased contango inventory positions.

Net cash used in investing activities for the first six months of 2011 was $168 million compared with $76 million for the first six months of 2010. Net cash used in investing activities in 2011 consisted of the acquisition of the Inland refined products pipeline system in Ohio for $99 million, capital expenditures to expand upon the Partnership’s existing butane blending business, increase tankage at the Nederland facility and expand the Partnership’s refined products platform in the southwest United States, as well as maintenance capital associated with the Partnership’s existing assets. Net cash used in investing activities in 2010 included construction projects to expand services at the Partnership’s refined products terminals, increase tankage at the Nederland facility and expand upon the Partnership’s refined products platform in the southwest United States.

Net cash provided by financing activities for the first six months of 2011 was $177 million compared with $49 million for the six three months of 2010. Net cash provided by financing activities for the first six months of 2011 resulted from $234 million in net borrowings under the Partnership’s revolving credit facility and a $51 million decrease in advances to affiliates. These sources of cash were partially offset by $103 million in quarterly distributions to limited and general partners. Net cash provided by financing activities for the first six months of 2010 resulted from $494 million in net proceeds from an issuance of senior notes, partially offset by $201 million in distributions to repay in full the promissory note issued in connection with the repurchase and exchange of the general partner’s IDRs, a $154 million net repayment of the Partnership’s credit facilities and $92 million in quarterly distributions paid to limited partners and the general partner.

Capital Requirements

The pipeline, terminalling, and crude oil storage operations are capital intensive, requiring significant investment to maintain, upgrade and enhance existing operations and to meet environmental and operational regulations. The capital requirements have consisted, and are expected to continue to consist, primarily of:

 

   

Maintenance capital expenditures, such as those required to maintain equipment reliability, tankage and pipeline integrity and safety, and to address environmental regulations; and

 

   

Expansion capital expenditures to acquire and integrate complimentary assets to grow the business, to improve operational efficiencies or reduce costs and to expand existing and construct new facilities, such as projects that increase storage or throughput volume.

The following table summarizes maintenance and expansion capital expenditures, including net cash paid for acquisitions, for the periods presented:

Expansion capital expenditures for the six months ended June 30, 2011 were $158 million compared to $62 million for the first six months of 2010. Expansion capital for 2011 includes the acquisition of an 83.8 percent equity interest in Inland Corporation for $99 million, which owns a refined products pipeline system in Ohio, projects to expand the Partnership’s butane blending business, increased tankage at the Nederland facility and expansion of the Partnership’s refined products platform in the southwest United States. The Partnership expects to invest $100 to $150 million in expansion capital in 2011, excluding major acquisitions.

Additionally in the first quarter 2011, the Partnership announced the development of Project Mariner West as an expansion of Project Mariner to provide additional ethane takeaway capacity out of the Marcellus Shale. Also in the first quarter 2011, West Texas Gulf Pipe Line Company, a consolidated joint venture, announced the development of a project to expand takeaway capacity out of the Permian Basin. Spending on these projects is not included in the estimated $100 to $150 million described above.

In June 2011, the Partnership announced the agreement to acquire a refined products terminal, located in East Boston, Massachusetts from affiliates of ConocoPhillips for $56 million plus inventory. The terminal is the sole service provider of Logan International Airport under a long-term contract. The acquisition is expect to close within the third quarter 2011 and will be included within the Terminal Facilities segment as of the acquisition date.

In August 2011, the Partnership acquired a crude oil purchasing and marketing business from Texon L.P. (“Texon”) for $205 million plus the fair market value of its crude oil inventory. The purchase consists of a lease crude business and gathering assets in 16 states, primarily in the western United States. The current crude oil volume of the business is approximately 75,000 barrels per day at the wellhead. The transaction is subject to customary closing conditions and is expected to close in the third quarter 2011. The acquisition will be included within the Crude Oil Pipeline segment as of the acquisition date.

Expansion capital for the first six months of 2010 included construction projects to expand services at the Partnership’s refined products terminals, increase tankage at the Nederland facility and expand upon the Partnership’s refined products platform in the southwest United States.

We expect to fund capital expenditures, including any additional acquisitions, from cash provided by operations and, to the extent necessary, from the proceeds of borrowings under the credit facilities, other borrowings and the issuance of additional limited partnership units.

Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk

We are exposed to various market risks, including interest rates and volatility in crude oil and refined products commodity prices. To manage such exposure, interest rates and inventory levels and expectations of future commodity prices are monitored when making decisions with respect to risk management.

Interest Rate Risk

We have interest-rate risk exposure for changes in interest rates relating to our outstanding borrowings. We manage our exposure to changing interest rates through the use of a combination of fixed- and variable-rate debt. At June 30, 2011, we had $365 million of variable-rate borrowings under our revolving credit facilities and promissory note to affiliates. The outstanding borrowings bear interest cost of LIBOR plus an applicable margin. An increase in short-term interest rates will have a negative impact on funds borrowed under variable debt arrangements. Our weighted average interest rate on our variable-rate borrowings was 1 percent at June 30, 2011. A one percent change in the weighted average rate would have impacted annual interest expense by approximately $4 million.

At June 30, 2011, we had $1.1 billion of fixed-rate senior notes, with a fair value of $1.2 billion. A hypothetical one-percent decrease in interest rates would increase the fair value of our fixed-rate borrowings at June 30, 2011 by approximately $196 million.

Commodity Market Risk

We are exposed to volatility in crude oil and refined products commodity prices. To manage such exposures, inventory levels and expectations of future commodity prices are monitored when making decisions with respect to risk management and inventory carried. Our policy is to purchase only commodity products for which we have a market and to structure our sales contracts so that price fluctuations for those products do not materially affect the margin we receive. We also seek to maintain a position that is substantially balanced within our various commodity purchase and sales activities. We may experience net unbalanced positions for short periods of time as a result of production, transportation and delivery variances, as well as logistical issues associated with inclement weather conditions. When unscheduled physical inventory builds or draws do occur, they are monitored and constantly managed to a balanced position over a reasonable period of time.

Pursuant to our risk management policy, derivative instruments may be used to hedge or reduce exposure to price risk associated with acquired inventory or forecasted physical transactions. These instruments are not used to speculate on crude oil or refined products prices, as these activities could expose us to significant losses. The physical contracts related to our crude oil and refined products businesses that qualify as derivatives have been designated as normal purchases and sales and are accounted for using traditional accrual accounting. We do not use derivative instruments to manage our exposure to prices related to crude oil purchase and sales activities. We do use derivative instruments as economic hedges against price changes related to our forecasted refined products purchase and sale activities. These derivative instruments are intended to have equal and opposite effects of the purchase and sale activities. At June 30, 2011, the fair market value of our open derivative positions was a net asset of $1 million on 3 million barrels of refined products. These derivative positions vary in length but do not extend beyond one year.

For additional information concerning our commodity market risk activities, see Note 13 to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements.

Item 4. Controls and Procedures

Disclosure controls and procedures are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in the Partnership reports filed or submitted under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported, within the time periods specified by the rules and forms of the Securities and Exchange Commission. Disclosure controls and procedures include, without limitation, controls and procedures designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in the Partnership reports under the Exchange Act is accumulated and communicated to management, including the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer and Vice President, Chief Financial Officer of Sunoco Partners LLC (the Partnership’s general partner), as appropriate, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.

As of June 30, 2011, the Partnership carried out an evaluation, under the supervision and with the participation of the management of the general partner (including the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer and the Vice President, Chief Financial Officer), of the effectiveness of the design and operation of the Partnership’s disclosure controls and procedures pursuant to Exchange Act Rule 13a-15. Based upon that evaluation, the general partner’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, and its Vice President, Chief Financial Officer, concluded that the Partnership’s disclosure controls and procedures are effective.

No change in the Partnership’s internal control over financial reporting has occurred during the fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2011 that has materially affected, or that is reasonably likely to materially affect, the Partnership’s internal control over financial reporting.

PART II

OTHER INFORMATION

 

Item 1. Legal Proceedings

There are certain legal and administrative proceedings arising prior to the February 2002 initial public offering (“IPO”) pending against our Sunoco-affiliated predecessors and us (as successor to certain liabilities of those predecessors). Although the ultimate outcome of these proceedings cannot be ascertained at this time, it is reasonably possible that some of them may be resolved unfavorably. Sunoco has agreed to indemnify the Partnership for 100 percent of all losses from environmental liabilities related to the transferred assets arising prior to, and asserted within 21 years of February 8, 2002. There is no monetary cap on this indemnification from Sunoco. Sunoco’s share of liability for claims asserted thereafter will decrease by 10 percent each year through the thirtieth year following the February 8, 2002 date. Any remediation liabilities not covered by this indemnity will be our responsibility. In addition, Sunoco is obligated to indemnify us under certain other agreements executed after the IPO.

Additionally, we have received notices of violations and potential fines under various federal, state and local provisions relating to the discharge of materials into the environment or protection of the environment. While we believe that even if any one or more of the environmental proceedings were decided against us, it would not be material to our financial position, we are required to report environmental proceedings unless we reasonably believe that such proceedings will result in monetary sanctions of less than $0.1 million.

There are certain other pending legal proceedings related to matters arising after the IPO that are not indemnified by Sunoco. Our management believes that any liabilities that may arise from these legal proceedings will not be material to our financial position at June 30, 2011.
