We undertake no obligation to update publicly any forward-looking statement whether as a result of new information or future events.

PART I ITEM 1. BUSINESS (a) General Development of Business We are a Delaware limited partnership formed on October 15, 2001. The principal executive offices of Sunoco Partners LLC, our general partner, are located at Ten Penn Center, 1801 Market Street, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 19103 (telephone (215) 977-3000). On October 22, 2001, we filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission a Registration Statement on Form S-1 related to an initial public offering of common units. In February 2002, 5,750,000 common units, representing approximately 24.8 % of our partnership interests, were sold to the public. Sunoco, Inc., through its wholly owned subsidiaries, currently owns approximately 75.2 % of our partnership interests, including the 2% general partner interest. (b) Financial Information about Segments See Part II, Item 8. Financial Statements and Supplementary Data. (c) Narrative Description of Business We are a limited partnership formed by Sunoco, Inc. to own, operate and acquire a geographically diversified portfolio of complementary energy assets. We are principally engaged in the transport, terminalling and storage of refined products and crude oil. Sunoco, Inc. (R&M), a wholly owned refining and marketing subsidiary of Sunoco, Inc. ("Sunoco R&M"), accounted for approximately 66% of our combined revenues for the year ended December 31, 2001. Our business comprises three segments: . Our Eastern Pipeline System primarily serves the Northeast and Midwest United States operations of Sunoco R&M and includes: approximately 1,900 miles of refined product pipelines, including a one-third interest in an 80-mile refined product pipeline, and 58 miles of interrefinery pipelines between two of Sunoco R&M's refineries; a 123-mile wholly owned crude oil pipeline; and a 9.4% interest in Explorer Pipeline Company, a joint venture that owns a 1,413-mile refined product pipeline. . Our Terminal Facilities consist of 32 inland refined product terminals with an aggregate storage capacity of 4.8 million barrels, primarily serving our Eastern Pipeline System; a 2.0 million barrel refined product terminal serving Sunoco R&M's Marcus Hook refinery near Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; an 11.2 million barrel marine crude oil terminal on the Texas Gulf Coast, our Nederland Terminal; one inland and two marine crude oil terminals, with a combined capacity of 3.0 million barrels, and related pipelines, all of which serve Sunoco R&M's Philadelphia refinery; and a 1.0 million barrel liquefied petroleum gas ("LPG") terminal near Detroit, Michigan. . Our Western Pipeline System gathers, purchases, sells, and transports crude oil principally in Oklahoma and Texas and consists of approximately 1,900 miles of crude oil trunk pipelines and approximately 870 miles of crude oil gathering lines that supply the trunk pipelines, approximately 140 crude oil transport trucks and approximately 130 crude oil truck unloading facilities. We transport, terminal, and store refined products and crude oil in 11 states. We generate revenues by charging tariffs for transporting refined products and crude oil through our pipelines and by charging fees for storing refined products, crude oil, and other hydrocarbons in, and for providing other services at, our terminals. We also generate revenues by purchasing domestic crude oil and selling it to Sunoco R&M and other customers. Generally, as we purchase crude oil, we simultaneously enter into corresponding sale transactions involving physical deliveries of crude oil, which enables us to secure a profit on the transaction at the time of purchase and establish a substantially balanced position, thereby minimizing exposure to price volatility after the initial purchase. Our practice is not to enter into futures contracts. 1

Upon the closing of our initial public offering in February 2002, our Eastern Pipeline System, Terminal Facilities and Western Pipeline System were transferred to us, including certain related liabilities. Certain other liabilities, including environmental and toxic tort liabilities have been retained by Sunoco, Inc. under the indemnification provisions of an omnibus agreement (see Item 7. "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations- Agreements with Sunoco R&M and Sunoco, Inc."). The following discussion has been prepared as if the assets were operated as a stand-alone business throughout the periods presented. Unless otherwise noted, we own and operate all of the assets described. Eastern Pipeline System Sunoco R&M accounted for approximately 73% of our Eastern Pipeline segment revenues for the year ended December 31, 2001. Refined Product Pipelines Our refined product pipelines transport refined products from Sunoco R&M's Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Marcus Hook, Pennsylvania and Toledo, Ohio refineries, as well as from third parties, to markets in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Michigan. The refined products transported in these pipelines include multiple grades of gasoline, low-octane gasoline for ethanol blending, distillates that include high- and low-sulfur diesel and jet fuel, LPGs (such as propane, butane, isobutane, and a butane/butylene mixture), refining feedstocks, and other hydrocarbons (such as toluene and xylene). Our refined product pipelines were originally constructed between 1931 and 1967. Our pipelines are regularly maintained, and we believe they are in good repair. The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission ("FERC"), regulates the rates for interstate shipments on our Eastern Pipeline System and the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission regulates the rates for intrastate shipments in Pennsylvania. The following table details the average aggregate daily number of barrels of refined products transported on our refined product pipelines in each of the years presented. The information in the following table does not include interrefinery pipelines and transfer pipelines that transport large volumes over short distances and generate minimal revenues. Year Ended December 31, ----------------------------------------------------- 1997 1998 1999 2000 2001 ------- ------- ------- ------- ------- Refined products transported (bpd)..... 433,222 431,989 461,379 444,046 446,648 The mix of refined petroleum products delivered varies seasonally, with gasoline demand peaking during the summer months, and demand for heating oil and other distillate fuels being higher in the winter. In addition, weather conditions in the areas served by our Eastern Pipeline System affect both the demand for, and the mix of, the refined petroleum products delivered through the Eastern Pipeline System, although historically any overall impact on the total volumes shipped has been short term. 2

The following table sets forth, for each of our refined product pipeline systems, the origin and destination, miles of pipeline and diameter. Except as shown below, we own 100% of our refined product pipeline systems.

The following text provides additional information about each of our refined product pipelines. Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to Montello, Pennsylvania. The Philadelphia to Montello refined product pipeline system is the principal means by which Sunoco R&M moves its refined products from its Philadelphia and Marcus Hook refineries into our Montello terminal for further transportation on our Eastern Pipeline System. The Philadelphia to Montello pipeline system consists of four segments: . a 12-inch, 60-mile segment from the Point Breeze pump station at Sunoco R&M's Philadelphia refinery to Montello; . an 8-inch, 60-mile segment from the Point Breeze pump station to Montello; . an 8-inch, 39-mile segment from our Twin Oaks pump station, which is adjacent to the Marcus Hook Tank Farm near Sunoco R&M's Marcus Hook refinery, to the 8-inch Point Breeze to Montello pipeline segment; and . an 8-inch, 51-mile segment from Boot, Pennsylvania to Fullerton, Pennsylvania. The 12-inch Point Breeze pump station to Montello segment also serves our Exton, Pennsylvania terminal. The 8-inch Point Breeze pump station to Montello segment connects with the 8-inch Boot to Fullerton segment at the Boot pump station and continues to Montello, with connections to a Phillips pipeline in Swarthmore, Pennsylvania and our terminal in Exton along its route. The 8-inch segment from the Twin Oaks pump station to the Point Breeze to Montello pipeline segment serves our terminal at Malvern, Pennsylvania and our storage facility at Icedale, Pennsylvania. The 8-inch Boot to Fullerton segment originates at the Boot pump station and terminates at our Fullerton terminal and Gulf Oil's Fullerton terminal. This segment also serves terminals operated by Pipeline Petroleum Corp. and Farm & Home and delivers to Buckeye's Buckeye pipeline in Macungie, Pennsylvania. Sunoco R&M accounted for approximately three quarters of the volumes transported on this pipeline system for 2001. Other shippers on this system include ExxonMobil, Gulf Oil, Major Oil, Delphi Petroleum, CITGO, El Paso, 3

Griffith Oil, NOCO Energy, Pickelner, and TransMontaigne. Phillips' Trainer, Pennsylvania refinery and Motiva's Delaware City, Delaware refinery can access the system at the Twin Oaks pump station. Products can also enter the system from ST Services' terminal in Philadelphia and from Valero's Paulsboro, New Jersey refinery via ExxonMobil's Malvern terminal. Refined products from Buckeye's Laurel pipeline can enter this system at Montello. Montello, Pennsylvania to Buffalo, New York. The Montello to Buffalo refined product pipeline system consists of the following segments: . a 14-inch, 80-mile segment and an 8-inch, 3-mile segment from Montello to Williamsport, Pennsylvania; and . an 8-inch, 217-mile segment from Williamsport to Buffalo, including an 8-inch, 19-mile spur from Caledonia Junction, New York to the Rochester, New York terminals. The Montello to Williamsport segment makes deliveries to Petroleum Products Corp., our Northumberland, Pennsylvania terminal, and to Sunoco R&M, Farm & Home, Pickelner, and Gulf Oil terminals in the Williamsport area. The Williamsport to Buffalo segment makes deliveries to the Rochester Gas & Electric terminal in Big Flats, New York. At Caledonia Junction, the spur runs to our Rochester terminal, as well as to terminals operated by ExxonMobil, Buckeye, Alaskan Oil, and Rochester Gas & Electric. In the Buffalo area, the pipeline serves our terminal and those of United Refining and NOCO Energy. Sunoco R&M accounted for approximately one-half of the volumes transported on this pipeline system for 2001. In addition to Sunoco R&M and the other companies who are served by this pipeline system, we also transport refined products for CITGO, BP, Phillips, El Paso, and Motiva. We also receive refined products for shipment into the Buffalo market through our interconnection with Buckeye's Buckeye pipeline at Caledonia Junction. Montello, Pennsylvania to Kingston, Pennsylvania. The Montello to Kingston refined product pipeline system consists of an 84-mile, 6-inch pipeline serving our terminal in Kingston, the Lehigh Oil & Gas terminal in Barnesville, Pennsylvania, and the Travel Center of America terminal in Beach Haven, Pennsylvania. In addition to Sunoco R&M, which accounted for most of the volumes transported on this system for 2001, we also transport product for Griffith Oil and TransMontaigne. Montello, Pennsylvania to Syracuse, New York. The Montello to Syracuse refined product pipeline system consists of 15 miles of 8-inch pipeline and 215 miles of 6-inch pipeline. This pipeline system serves our terminals in Tamaqua, Pennsylvania and Binghamton, New York, and terminates at a Hess/ExxonMobil terminal in Syracuse, New York. Sunoco R&M is the only shipper on this pipeline system. Montello, Pennsylvania to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The Montello to Pittsburgh refined product pipeline system consists of a 221-mile, 8-inch pipeline supplied by our Philadelphia to Montello pipeline system and Buckeye's Laurel pipeline at Delmont, Pennsylvania. The pipeline system serves our terminals located in Mechanicsburg, Altoona, Delmont, Blawnox, and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. This pipeline system is connected to our Toledo, Ohio to Blawnox pipeline system, through which we can supply our Pittsburgh, Blawnox, Delmont, and Altoona terminals with refined product from Sunoco R&M's Toledo refinery. Sunoco R&M is the only shipper on this pipeline system. Toledo, Ohio to Blawnox, Pennsylvania. The Toledo to Blawnox refined product pipeline system consists of 115 miles of 10-inch pipeline and 145 miles of 8-inch pipeline. This pipeline system transports refined products and petrochemicals from Sunoco R&M's Toledo refinery, as well as petrochemicals from Sarnia, Canada, to our terminals in Akron and Youngstown, Ohio and Vanport and Blawnox, Pennsylvania. The pipeline system also makes deliveries to the Kinder Morgan Indianola, Pennsylvania facility and accesses the Inland Pipeline system owned by Sunoco R&M, BP, Unocal, and Equilon. Sunoco R&M accounted for most of the volumes transported on this pipeline system for 2001. 4

Toledo, Ohio to Sarnia, Canada. The Toledo to Sarnia refined product pipeline system consists of three segments totaling 241 miles of 6-inch and 8-inch pipelines originating at Sunoco R&M's Toledo refinery and terminating at three separate points. The system includes one 6-inch and two 8-inch pipelines running approximately 50 miles between Toledo and our Inkster Terminal near Detroit, Michigan. At Inkster, the 6-inch pipeline continues 11 miles to River Rouge, Michigan, and one of the 8-inch pipelines continues 80 miles to Sarnia. Deliveries into and out of Toledo originate from Sunoco R&M's Toledo refinery, BP's Toledo refinery, Buckeye's Buckeye pipeline, and the Marathon Ashland Petroleum ("MAP") Toledo terminal. The Toledo to River Rouge segment serves the Atlas, Buckeye, and MAP terminals in Taylor, Michigan and our Inkster Terminal and River Rouge Terminal. Product terminals in the Detroit area served by the Toledo to Sarnia segment include those of BP, MAP, and RKA. The Toledo to Sarnia segment serves our Inkster Terminal and the Consumers Power Marysville, Michigan underground storage facilities and has delivery and origin capabilities at Sarnia that include the Suncor, BP, Royal Dutch/Shell, and Novacor refineries. Each section of this system is bi-directional and can ship refined products or LPG. Sunoco R&M accounted for approximately half of the volume on this system for 2001. Other shippers on this system include Suncor, CITGO, MAP, Northwest Airlines, BP and Kinetic Resources. Twin Oaks, Pennsylvania to Newark, New Jersey. The Twin Oaks to Newark refined product pipeline system consists of a 111-mile, 14-inch pipeline originating at the Twin Oaks pump station, adjacent to our Marcus Hook Tank Farm, and terminating in Newark and Linden, New Jersey. Motiva's Delaware City refinery, Phillips' Trainer refinery, and Sunoco R&M's Marcus Hook refinery can access this pipeline system at its origin. Deliveries are made to our Willow Grove, Pennsylvania and Piscataway and Newark, New Jersey terminals, as well as into the Linden area via a 7-mile, 12-inch spur that serves terminals owned by Kaneb, Kinder Morgan, ExxonMobil, Phillips, and Buckeye. Our Linden transfer facility allows transfers between these third-party terminals while we make main-line deliveries. In Newark, the pipeline system serves terminals owned by Lukoil and Motiva. We interconnect with Buckeye's Laurel pipeline at the Twin Oaks pump station using a 2-mile, 16-inch spur. Shippers on this pipeline include Sunoco R&M, which accounted for most of the volumes transported for 2001, Motiva, Phillips, ExxonMobil, and Kaneb. Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to Linden, New Jersey. The Philadelphia to Linden refined product pipeline system consists of an 80-mile, 16-inch segment called the Harbor pipeline, and an 8-mile, 12-inch segment. We own 100% of the 12-inch segment, and we operate the 16-inch segment, which is owned jointly, in equal percentages, by El Paso, Phillips, and us. Each owner of the 16-inch segment has a right to 60,000 bpd of capacity. The pipeline system is connected at its origin to the El Paso refinery in Eagle Point, New Jersey, the Phillips tank farm in Woodbury, New Jersey, the Gulf Oil terminal in Woodbury, and Sunoco R&M's Philadelphia refinery. Sunoco R&M can also deliver product to the Gulf Oil terminal while other parties are shipping product to New York. Deliveries at Linden are made to a Phillips terminal, a Gulf Oil terminal, CITGO terminals, and Buckeye's and El Paso's pipelines. This pipeline system is also connected and makes deliveries into our Twin Oaks, Pennsylvania to Newark pipeline, allowing us to transport refined product to our Piscataway and Newark, New Jersey terminals. Sunoco R&M accounted for all of our allocated share of the volumes transported on the 16-inch segment for 2001 and for all of the volumes transported on the 12-inch segment for the same period. Interrefinery Pipelines We lease to Sunoco R&M, for a fixed amount, three bi-directional 18-mile pipelines and a four-mile pipeline spur extending to the Philadelphia International Airport. One pipeline and the spur transfer jet fuel from Sunoco R&M's Philadelphia and Marcus Hook refineries to the Philadelphia International Airport. A second pipeline transfers LPG to and from Sunoco R&M's Philadelphia refinery and Marcus Hook storage facility. The third pipeline transfers gasoline blending components and intermediate feedstocks between Sunoco R&M's Marcus Hook and Philadelphia refineries. The third pipeline is used to optimize refinery operations, such as gasoline blending and unit turnaround scheduling. 5

Crude Oil Pipeline This 123-mile, 16-inch crude oil pipeline runs from Marysville, Michigan to Toledo, Ohio. This pipeline receives crude oil from the Lakehead pipeline system for delivery to Sunoco R&M and BP refineries located in Toledo, Ohio and to MAP's Samaria, Michigan tank farm, which supplies its refinery in Detroit, Michigan. Marysville is also a truck injection point for local production. Sunoco R&M is the major shipper on the pipeline. The pipeline was built in 1967 and its tariffs are regulated by the FERC. This pipeline is regularly maintained and we believe that it is in good repair. The table below sets forth the average daily number of barrels of crude oil transported through this crude oil pipeline in each of the years presented. Year Ended December 31, ---------------------------------------------------- 1997 1998 1999 2000 2001 ------ ------ ------ ------ ------ Crude oil transported (bpd).......... 88,948 88,638 81,464 91,464 98,226 Explorer Pipeline We own a 9.4% interest in Explorer Pipeline Company, a joint venture that owns and operates a 1,413-mile common carrier refined product pipeline. Other owners of Explorer include Equilon, MAP, ChevronTexaco, Conoco, CITGO, and Phillips. The system originates from the refining centers of Lake Charles, Louisiana and Beaumont, Port Arthur and Houston, Texas, and extends to Chicago, Illinois, with delivery points in the Houston, Dallas/Fort Worth, Tulsa, St. Louis, and Chicago areas. The pipeline was built in 1972. Refined products transported on this system primarily include gasoline, jet fuel, diesel fuel, and heating oil. Shippers on the pipeline include most of the owners other than Sunoco, Inc. and several non-affiliated customers. In 2000, the FERC approved Explorer's application for market-based rates for all its tariffs. We receive a quarterly cash dividend from Explorer that is commensurate with our ownership interest. For 2001, we received approximately $4.3 million in cash dividends. Volumes transported on this system have increased as the refining centers in the Gulf Coast region have increased shipments to meet higher demand. Explorer recently announced two expansions of the system's capacity by 130,000 bpd from Port Arthur to Tulsa and by 100,000 bpd from Tulsa to Chicago. The expansions, planned to be completed by early 2003, are currently projected to cost more than $100 million. Based on current plans, we will not be required to make an equity contribution to finance these capital expenditures. A member of our management team serves on Explorer's board of directors. Terminal Facilities Sunoco R&M accounted for approximately 59% of our Terminal Facilities segment revenues for the year ended December 31, 2001. Refined Product Terminals Our 32 inland refined product terminals receive refined products from pipelines and distribute them to Sunoco R&M and to third parties, who in turn deliver them to end-users and retail outlets. Terminals play a key role in moving product to the end-user market by providing the following services: storage and inventory management; distribution; blending to achieve specified grades of gasoline; and other ancillary services that include the injection of additives and filtering of jet fuel. Typically, our terminal facilities consist of multiple storage tanks and are equipped with automated truck loading equipment that is available 24 hours a day. This automated system provides for control of allocations, credit and carrier certification by remote input of data by our customers. In addition, all of our terminals are equipped with truck loading racks capable of providing automated blending to individual customer specifications. 6

Our refined product terminals derive most of their revenues from terminalling fees paid by customers. A fee is charged for transferring refined products from the terminal to trucks, barges, or pipelines. In addition to terminalling fees, we generate revenues by charging our customers fees for blending, injecting additives, and filtering jet fuel. We generate the balance of our revenues from other hydrocarbons handled for Sunoco R&M in Vanport, Pennsylvania and Toledo, Ohio and for lubricants handled for Sunoco R&M in Cleveland, Ohio. Sunoco R&M accounts for substantially all of our refined product terminal revenues. Our pipelines supply the majority of our inland refined product terminals. Third-party pipelines supply the remainder of our inland refined product terminals. The table below sets forth the total average throughput for our inland refined product terminals in each of the years presented: Year Ended December 31, ----------------------------------------------------- 1997 1998 1999 2000 2001 ------- ------- ------- ------- ------- Refined products terminalled (bpd)..... 242,570 234,058 251,627 266,212 272,698 7

This terminal is part of the Philadelphia refinery and is owned by an affiliate of Sunoco, Inc. That affiliate has leased the terminal to us until the terminal can be platted as a separate lot. If the terminal is platted as a separate lot, the terminal will be conveyed to us for nominal consideration. (2) We have a 45% ownership interest in this terminal. The capacity represents the proportionate share of capacity attributable to our ownership interest. 8

The Nederland Terminal The Texas Gulf Coast region is the major hub for petroleum refining in the United States, representing approximately 40% of total United States daily refining capacity and 66% of total United States refining capacity expansion from 1990 to 1999. The growth in Gulf Coast refining capacity has resulted in part from consolidation in the petroleum industry in order to achieve economies of scale from operating larger refineries. According to the EIA, imports of crude oil through the Gulf Coast increased 4.8% annually from 1995 to 2000. The growth in refining capacity, including new heavy oil conversion projects, and increased product flow from the Gulf Coast region to other regions has created a need for additional transportation, storage, and distribution facilities on the Gulf Coast. We believe that demand for imported crude oil and for petroleum products refined in the Gulf Coast region will continue to increase. The Nederland Terminal, which is located on the Sabine-Neches waterway between Beaumont and Port Arthur, Texas, is a large marine terminal that provides inventory management, storage, and distribution services for refiners and other large end-users of crude oil. The Nederland Terminal receives, stores, and distributes crude oil, feedstocks, lubricants, petrochemicals, and bunker oils (used for fueling ships and other marine vessels). In addition, the Nederland Terminal also blends and packages lubricants and is equipped with petroleum laboratory facilities. The Nederland Terminal has a total storage capacity of approximately 11.2 million barrels in 126 above-ground storage tanks with individual capacities of up to 660,000 barrels. The terminal currently uses its aggregate storage capacity as follows: . 10.3 million barrels for crude oil; . 400,000 barrels for feedstocks; . 272,000 barrels for lubricants; . 150,000 barrels for bunker oils; and . 80,000 barrels for petrochemicals. The terminal can receive crude oil at each of its five ship docks and three barge berths, which can accommodate any vessel capable of navigating the 40-foot freshwater draft of the Sabine-Neches Ship Channel. The five ship docks are capable of receiving a total of 1.0 million bpd of crude oil. The terminal can also receive crude oil through a number of pipelines, including the Equilon pipeline from Louisiana, the Department of Energy ("DOE") Big Hill pipeline, the DOE West Hackberry pipeline, the EOTT Louisiana pipeline system, and our Western Pipeline System. The DOE pipelines connect the Nederland Terminal to the United States Strategic Petroleum Reserve's West Hackberry caverns at Hackberry, Louisiana and Big Hill caverns near Winnie, Texas, which have an aggregate storage capacity of 370 million barrels. The Nederland Terminal's pipeline connections to major markets in the Lake Charles, Beaumont, Port Arthur, Houston, and Midwest areas provide customers with maximum flexibility and liquidity. The Nederland Terminal can deliver crude oil and other petroleum products via pipeline, barge, ship, rail, or truck. In the aggregate, the Nederland Terminal is capable of delivering over 1.0 million bpd of crude oil to 11 connecting pipelines.

We generate revenues at the Nederland Terminal primarily by providing long-term and short-term, or spot, storage services and throughput capability to a broad spectrum of customers. Approximately 88% of the terminal's total revenues in 2001 came from unaffiliated third parties. We derive a significant portion of our Nederland Terminal's revenues from long-term contracts, which enhance the stability and predictability of its revenue stream. Fort Mifflin Terminal Complex The Fort Mifflin Terminal Complex is located on the Delaware River in Philadelphia. Our Fort Mifflin Terminal Complex supplies Sunoco R&M's Philadelphia refinery with all of its crude oil. These assets include the Fort Mifflin Terminal, the Hog Island Wharf, the Darby Creek Tank Farm and connecting pipelines. We generate revenues from our Fort Mifflin Terminal Complex by charging Sunoco R&M and others a storage fee based on tank capacity and throughput. Substantially all of our revenues from the Fort Mifflin Terminal Complex are derived from Sunoco R&M. Fort Mifflin Terminal. Our Fort Mifflin Terminal consists of two ship docks with 40-foot freshwater drafts and nine tanks with a total storage capacity of 570,000 barrels. Six 80,000-barrel tanks are used to store crude oil, and three 30,000-barrel tanks are used to provide fuel to ships. Two of the 80,000-barrel tanks can be used to store refined products. This terminal also has a connection with the Colonial Pipeline System. Crude oil and some refined products enter our Fort Mifflin Terminal primarily from marine vessels on the Delaware River. One Fort Mifflin dock is designed to handle crude oil from very large crude carrier-class tankers and smaller crude oil vessels. Our other dock can accommodate only smaller crude oil vessels. Hog Island Wharf. Our Hog Island Wharf is located next to the Fort Mifflin Terminal on the Delaware River. Our Hog Island Wharf receives crude oil via two ship docks, one of which can accommodate crude oil tankers and smaller crude oil vessels and the other of which can accommodate some smaller crude oil vessels. Hog Island Wharf supplies our Darby Creek Tank Farm and Fort Mifflin Terminal with crude oil. Crude oil from our Hog Island Wharf is delivered to Sunoco R&M's Philadelphia refinery via our Darby Creek Tank Farm. Darby Creek Tank Farm. Our Darby Creek Tank Farm is a primary crude oil storage terminal for Sunoco R&M's Philadelphia refinery. This facility has 21 tanks with a total storage capacity of 2.4 million barrels. Darby Creek receives crude oil from our Fort Mifflin Terminal and Hog Island Wharf via our 24-inch pipelines. The tank farm then stores the crude oil and pumps it to the Philadelphia refinery via our 16-inch pipeline. The multiple tanks in this storage facility provide us with added flexibility in blending crude oil to achieve the optimal crude oil slate for the Philadelphia refinery. Crude Oil and Refined Product Delivery. Our Fort Mifflin Terminal Complex includes a number of crude oil pipelines: . one 30-inch pipeline and one 16-inch pipeline that deliver crude oil from our Fort Mifflin Terminal to Sunoco R&M's Philadelphia refinery; . two 24-inch pipelines that deliver crude oil from our Hog Island Wharf to our Darby Creek Tank Farm; . one 16-inch pipeline that delivers crude oil from our Darby Creek Tank Farm to Sunoco R&M's Philadelphia refinery; and . one 30-inch bi-directional pipeline that delivers crude oil between our Hog Island Wharf and our Fort Mifflin Terminal. Our Fort Mifflin Terminal Complex also includes several pipelines that deliver refined products to Sunoco R&M's Philadelphia refinery: . one 30-inch pipeline and one 16-inch pipeline that deliver refined products from our Fort Mifflin Terminal to Sunoco R&M's Philadelphia refinery for transportation on our Eastern Pipeline System; and 11

. one dual diameter, 24- and 26-inch pipeline that delivers refined products from our Hog Island Wharf to Sunoco R&M's Philadelphia refinery. We charge Sunoco R&M a fee for each barrel delivered to its Philadelphia refinery via our Fort Mifflin Terminal or our Darby Creek Tank Farm. The table below sets forth the average daily number of barrels of crude oil and refined products delivered to Sunoco R&M's Philadelphia refinery in each of the years presented.

This facility has 17 tanks with a total storage capacity of approximately 2.0 million barrels. After receipt of refined products from the Marcus Hook refinery, the tank farm either stores them or delivers them to our Twin Oaks terminal or to the Twin Oaks pump station, which supplies our Eastern Pipeline System. The table below sets forth the total average throughput for our Marcus Hook Tank Farm in each of the years presented: Year Ended December 31, ----------------------------------------------------- 1997 1998 1999 2000 2001 ------- ------- ------- ------- ------- Refined products terminalled (bpd)..... 137,673 138,556 142,404 133,455 138,490 The Inkster Terminal Our Inkster Terminal, located near Detroit, Michigan, consists of eight salt caverns with a total storage capacity of 975,000 barrels. We use the Inkster Terminal's storage in connection with our Toledo, Ohio to Sarnia, Canada pipeline system and for the storage of LPGs from Sunoco R&M's Toledo refinery and from Canada. The terminal can receive and ship LPGs in both directions at the same time and has a propane truck loading rack that can load two trucks simultaneously. For the last five years, Sunoco R&M has used the full capacity of our Inkster Terminal. Buckeye has access to the terminal through our spur line to Joan Junction in Taylor, Michigan. Western Pipeline System Sunoco R&M accounted for approximately 66% of our Western Pipeline System segment revenues for the year ended December 31, 2001. 12

Crude Oil Pipelines We own and operate approximately 1,900 miles of crude oil trunk pipelines and approximately 870 miles of crude oil gathering lines in three primary geographic regions -- Oklahoma, West Texas, and the Texas Gulf Coast and East Texas region. We are the primary shipper on our Western Pipeline System. We also deliver crude oil for Sunoco R&M and for various third parties from points in Texas and Oklahoma. Delivery points on our Western Pipeline System include Sunoco R&M's and Sinclair's Tulsa, Oklahoma refineries and the Gary-Williams refinery in Wynnewood, Oklahoma. Our pipelines also access several trading hubs, including the largest and most significant trading hub for crude oil in the United States located in Cushing, Oklahoma, as well as other trading hubs located in Colorado City and Longview, Texas. Our crude oil pipelines also connect with other pipelines that deliver crude oil to a number of third-party refineries. The majority of the pipelines in our Western Pipeline System were constructed between 1925 and 1967. Our pipelines are subject to ongoing maintenance, and we believe they are in good repair. The table below sets forth the average aggregate daily number of barrels of crude oil transported on our crude oil pipelines in each of the years presented. Year Ended December 31, ----------------------------------------------------- 1997 1998 1999 2000 2001 ------- ------- ------- ------- ------- Crude oil transported (bpd)(1).......... 258,931 253,124 252,098 295,991 287,237 - --------- (1) Includes lube extracted feedstocks transported from Sunoco, Inc.'s Tulsa, Oklahoma refinery. 13

In each geographic region, we have major crude oil trunk line systems that ship crude oil across a number of different-sized trunk pipeline segments. The following table details the mileage and diameter for the pipelines in each major crude oil trunk line system. We transported most of the crude oil and lube extracted feedstock transported to or originating from Sunoco R&M's Tulsa, Oklahoma, and Toledo, Ohio refineries for the year ended December 31, 2001.

This system contains 693 miles of crude oil trunk pipelines and 459 miles of crude oil gathering lines. We have the ability to deliver all of the crude oil gathered on our Oklahoma system to Cushing. Additionally, we make deliveries on the Oklahoma system to: . Sunoco R&M's Tulsa refinery; . Sinclair's Tulsa refinery; . Gary-Williams' Wynnewood refinery; and . Conoco's pipeline to its Ponca City refinery. We generate revenues on our Oklahoma system from tariffs paid by shippers utilizing our transportation services. We file these tariffs with the Oklahoma Corporation Commission and the FERC. We are the largest purchaser of crude oil from producers in the state, and we are the primary shipper on our Oklahoma system. Other significant shippers are Sunoco R&M and Sinclair, which ship primarily on the Cushing to Tulsa segment. Our Oklahoma crude oil pipelines consist of two major systems, the Enid to Tulsa system and the Velma to Tulsa system, and several smaller pipelines. Enid, Oklahoma to Tulsa, Oklahoma. The Enid to Tulsa crude oil pipeline system originates in Northwestern Oklahoma, connects to the Cushing, Oklahoma trading hub, and terminates in Tulsa at the Sunoco R&M and Sinclair refineries. This system consists of seven major segments. 14

Three segments deliver crude oil received from trucks and gathering systems to Enid for further delivery on our system. Enid is a hub from which we transport crude oil on our two east-bound pipelines to third-party pipelines and refineries, and to the Cushing trading hub. The two east-bound pipelines from Enid include our Enid to Morris pipeline, which connects Conoco's pipeline to its Ponca City refinery, and our Enid to Cushing pipeline, which receives crude oil from our Oklahoma City to Douglas segment and delivers crude oil to our storage tanks at the Cushing trading hub. Shippers utilizing our pipeline may also access the BP, Equilon, Plains All American, and TEPPCO storage terminals in Cushing. Our Cushing to Tulsa pipeline provides transportation services, under tariffs filed with the FERC, from third-party terminals and our tanks in Cushing to the Sunoco R&M and Sinclair refineries in Tulsa. Velma, Oklahoma to Tulsa, Oklahoma. The Velma to Tulsa crude oil pipeline system originates in Southwestern Oklahoma, moves eastward to the Gary-Williams refinery at Wynnewood, and terminates at the Sunoco R&M and Sinclair refineries in Tulsa. This system consists of seven major segments. The Velma to Eola, Eola to Maysville, and Eola to Wynnewood segments are used to transport crude oil from trucks and gathering systems owned by us and third parties to Gary-Williams' Wynnewood refinery and to our pipeline that delivers to Cushing and Sunoco R&M's Tulsa refinery. The Maysville to Seminole, Seminole to Bad Creek, Fitts to Bad Creek, and Bad Creek to Tulsa pipelines are primarily used to transport crude oil to the Sunoco R&M and Sinclair refineries in Tulsa. These pipelines are supplied by our gathering systems and trucks, as well as EOTT and STG gathering lines. We ship substantially all of the volumes on these pipelines. Other Oklahoma Pipelines. Our other Oklahoma pipelines include the Tulsa to Cushing segment that transports lube extracted feedstock from Sunoco R&M's Tulsa refinery to Cushing for ultimate delivery by third-party pipelines to other refineries for further processing. Our Barnsdall to Tulsa segment receives crude oil gathered by our trucks for shipment to Sunoco R&M's Tulsa refinery. West Texas We own and operate approximately 820 miles of crude oil trunk pipelines and 258 miles of crude oil gathering lines in West and North Central Texas. We make deliveries on our West Texas system to: . a Valero, L.P. pipeline at Dixon, Texas that delivers crude oil to Valero Energy Corporation's refinery in McKee, Texas; . a Conoco pipeline at South Bend, Texas that makes deliveries to Conoco's Ponca City refinery; . a TEPPCO pipeline at South Bend that makes deliveries to Gary-Williams' Wynnewood refinery; . the West Texas Gulf pipeline at Tye and Colorado City, Texas that connects to Mid-Valley pipeline in Longview, Texas, which makes deliveries to Sunoco R&M's Toledo refinery and other Midwest refineries; and . other third-party pipelines at Colorado City that deliver crude oil to Sunoco R&M's Tulsa and Toledo refineries, among others. We are the shipper of substantially all the volumes on this system. We generate revenues in West Texas from tariffs paid by shippers utilizing our transportation services. We file these tariffs with the Texas Railroad Commission. Our West Texas pipelines consist of the three following systems: Jameson and Salt Creek, Texas to Colorado City, Texas. The Jameson and Salt Creek to Colorado City crude oil pipeline system consists of two pipeline segments. Crude oil is gathered or trucked into this system and transported from Jameson to Colorado City, or from Salt Creek to Colorado City, where it can be delivered into BP, Basin, ChevronTexaco, EOTT, or West Texas Gulf pipelines. These connections allow us to deliver crude oil to Sunoco R&M's Tulsa and Toledo refineries and other unaffiliated third-party destinations. 15

Hearne, Texas to Hawley, Texas. The Hearne to Hawley system is comprised of seven pipeline segments. The two segments delivering into Comyn, Texas are supplied with crude oil from our trucks, third-party trucks, and pipelines, including the Genesis, Koch, and Plains All American pipelines located in Hearne. From Comyn, crude oil can be shipped to: . the West Texas Gulf pipeline at Tye; . the Conoco and TEPPCO pipelines at South Bend; or . our pipeline in Hawley. At Tye, we have tankage and a bi-directional connection with the West Texas Gulf pipeline that allows us to receive and deliver crude oil. Hawley, Texas to Dixon, Texas. On the Hawley to Dixon system, we receive crude oil from the following sources: . our Hearne to Hawley system, including West Texas Gulf's system through Tye, Texas; . Plains All American and Equilon pipeline interconnections; and . truck injection locations and pipeline-connected lease gathering sites. We deliver this crude oil to Dixon, where we connect with the Valero, L.P. pipeline that delivers crude oil to the Valero Energy Corporation refinery at McKee. Crude oil received from our Hearne to Hawley system accounts for a majority of the volumes transported on this system. Texas Gulf Coast and East Texas Our Texas Gulf Coast and East Texas pipeline system includes 370 miles of crude oil trunk pipelines and 153 miles of crude oil gathering lines that extend between the Texas Gulf Coast region near Beaumont and Mt. Belvieu, Texas and the East Texas field near Longview, Texas. We transport multiple grades of crude oil, including foreign imports, and other refinery and petrochemical feedstocks, such as condensate and naphtha, on these pipelines. We receive crude oil for these systems from other pipelines, our Nederland Terminal, our trucks, third-party trucks, and our pipeline gathering systems. This system provides access to major delivery points with interconnecting pipelines in Texas at Longview, Sour Lake, and Nederland. We generate revenues from tariffs paid by shippers utilizing our transportation services. These tariffs are filed with the Texas Railroad Commission and the FERC. We are the primary shipper on the Texas Gulf Coast and East Texas system. Sunoco R&M ships on the Nederland to Longview segment, which connects with the Mid-Valley pipeline for deliveries to Sunoco R&M's Toledo refinery. Our Texas Gulf Coast and East Texas system consists of these pipelines: Seabreeze and Orange, Texas to Nederland, Texas. The Seabreeze and Orange to Nederland crude oil pipeline system consists of two pipelines: . a bi-directional 28-mile pipeline from Seabreeze to Nederland; and . an 11-mile pipeline from Orange to Nederland. The Seabreeze pipeline transports condensate received from TransTexas' Winnie, Texas plant and by truck to our Nederland Terminal. The Seabreeze pipeline also transports naphtha for BASF/Fina from our Nederland Terminal to the TEPPCO pipeline for delivery to BASF/Fina's new steam cracker in Port Arthur. Crude oil gathered or trucked to the Orange pipeline is transported to our Nederland Terminal for delivery to a number of destinations. 16

Nederland, Texas to Longview, Texas. The Nederland to Longview pipeline transports primarily foreign crude oil from our Nederland Terminal to the 240,000 bpd Mid-Valley pipeline in Longview, Texas. Other connections in the Longview area include BP's pipeline from Longview to Cushing, Oklahoma, McMurrey's pipeline that supplies Crown Central's Tyler, Texas refinery, and ExxonMobil's pipeline that delivers to Wichita Falls, Texas and Patoka, Illinois. Baytown, Texas to Nederland, Texas. The Baytown to Nederland crude oil pipeline passes through Sour Lake, Texas where it makes deliveries to our Nederland to Longview pipeline and the CITGO tank farm and pipeline that supplies CITGO's Lake Charles, Louisiana refinery. The system also delivers to the ExonMobil Baytown, Texas refinery. Thomas, Texas to Longview, Texas. The Thomas to Longview crude oil pipeline originates in Thomas, Texas and makes deliveries to all of the connections in Longview, Texas described above. The pipeline receives crude oil from our pipeline gathering system in the East Texas field. Crude Oil Acquisition and Marketing In addition to receiving tariff revenues for transporting crude oil on our Western Pipeline System, we also generate revenues through our crude oil acquisition and marketing operations, primarily in Oklahoma and Texas. These activities include: purchasing crude oil from producers at the wellhead and in bulk from aggregators at major pipeline interconnections and trading locations; transporting crude oil on our pipelines and trucks or, when necessary or cost effective, pipelines or trucks owned and operated by third parties; and marketing crude oil to refiners or resellers. The marketing of crude oil is complex and requires detailed knowledge of the crude oil market and a familiarity with a number of factors, including types of crude oil, individual refinery demand for specific grades of crude oil, area market price structures for different grades of crude oil, location of customers, availability of transportation facilities, timing, and customers' costs (including storage). We sell our crude oil to major integrated oil companies, independent refiners, including Sunoco R&M for its Tulsa and Toledo refineries, and other resellers in various types of sale and exchange transactions, at market prices for terms generally ranging from one month to one year. We enter into contracts with producers at market prices generally for a term of one year or less, with a majority of the transactions on a 30-day renewable basis. For the year ended December 31, 2001, we purchased approximately 181,000 bpd from approximately 3,300 producers from approximately 33,000 leases. Crude Oil Lease Purchases and Exchanges In a typical producer's operation, crude oil flows from the wellhead to a separator where the petroleum gases are removed. After separation, the producer treats the crude oil to remove water, sand, and other contaminants and then moves it to an on-site storage tank. When the tank is full, the producer contacts our field personnel to purchase and transport the crude oil to market. The crude oil in producers' tanks is then either delivered to our pipeline or transported via truck to our pipeline or a third party's pipeline. Our truck fleet generally performs the trucking service. We also enter into exchange agreements to enhance margins throughout the acquisition and marketing process. When opportunities arise to increase our margin or to acquire a grade of crude oil that more nearly matches our delivery requirement or the preferences of our refinery customers, we exchange physical crude oil with third parties. Generally, we enter into exchanges to acquire crude oil of a desired quality in exchange for a common grade crude oil or to acquire crude oil at locations that are closer to our end markets, thereby reducing transportation costs. 17

The following table shows our average daily volume for our crude oil lease purchases and exchanges for the years presented. Year Ended December 31, -------------------------------- 1997 1998 1999 2000 2001 ---- ---- ---- ---- ---- (in thousands of bpd) Lease purchases: Available for sale ............... 93 98 107 141 148 Exchanges ........................ 71 58 38 36 33 Other exchanges and bulk purchases .... 147 144 141 230 211 --- --- --- --- --- Total ................................. 311 300 286 407 392 === === === === === Our business practice is generally to purchase only crude oil for which we have a corresponding sale agreement for physical delivery of crude oil to a third party or a Sunoco R&M refinery. Through this process, we seek to maintain a position that is substantially balanced between crude oil purchases and future delivery obligations. We do not acquire and hold crude oil futures contracts or enter into other derivative contracts for the purpose of speculating on crude oil prices. The following table shows our average daily sales and exchange volumes of crude oil for the years presented: Year Ended December 31, -------------------------------- 1997 1998 1999 2000 2001 ---- ---- ---- ---- ---- (in thousands of bpd) Sunoco R&M refineries: Toledo ........................... 41 30 26 29 28 Tulsa ............................ 46 57 63 73 71 Third parties ......................... 7 14 20 41 52 Exchanges: Purchased at the lease ........... 71 58 38 36 33 Other ............................ 147 141 139 227 208 --- --- --- --- --- Total ................................. 312 300 286 406 392 === === === === === Market Conditions Market conditions impact our sales and marketing strategies. During periods when demand for crude oil is weak, the market for crude oil is often in contango, meaning that the price of crude oil in a given month is less than the price of crude oil for delivery in a subsequent month. In a contango market, storing crude oil is favorable because storage owners at major trading locations can simultaneously purchase production at low current prices for storage and sell at higher prices for future delivery. When there is a higher demand than supply of crude oil in the near term, the market is backwardated, meaning that the price of crude oil in a given month exceeds the price of crude oil for delivery in a subsequent month. A backwardated market has a positive impact on marketing margins because crude oil marketers can continue to purchase crude oil from producers at a fixed premium to posted prices while selling crude oil at a higher premium to such prices. 18

Producer Services Crude oil purchasers who buy from producers compete on the basis of competitive prices and highly responsive services. Through our team of crude oil purchasing representatives, we maintain ongoing relationships with more than 3,300 producers. We believe that our ability to offer competitive pricing and high-quality field and administrative services to producers is a key factor in our ability to maintain volumes of purchased crude oil and to obtain new volumes. Field services include efficient gathering capabilities, availability of trucks, willingness to construct gathering pipelines where economically justified, timely pickup of crude oil from storage tanks at the lease or production point, accurate measurement of crude oil volumes received, avoidance of spills, and effective management of pipeline deliveries. Accounting and other administrative services include securing division orders (statements from interest owners affirming the division of ownership in crude oil purchased by us), providing statements of the crude oil purchased each month, disbursing production proceeds to interest owners, and calculating and paying production taxes on behalf of interest owners. In order to compete effectively, we must maintain records of title and division order interests in an accurate and timely manner for purposes of making prompt and correct payment of crude oil production proceeds, together with the correct payment of all production taxes associated with these proceeds. Credit with Customers When we market crude oil, we must determine the amount of any line of credit to be extended to a customer. Since our typical sales transactions can involve tens of thousands of barrels of crude oil, the risk of nonpayment and nonperformance by customers is a major consideration in our business. We believe our sales are made to creditworthy entities or entities with adequate credit support. Credit review and analysis are also integral to our lease purchases. Payment for substantially all of the monthly lease production is sometimes made to the operator of the lease. The operator, in turn, is responsible for the correct payment and distribution of such production proceeds to the proper parties. In these situations, we must determine whether the operator has sufficient financial resources to make such payments and distributions and to indemnify and defend us in the event a third party brings a protest, action, or complaint in connection with the ultimate distribution of production proceeds by the operator. Crude Oil Trucking We operate approximately 130 crude oil truck unloading facilities in Oklahoma, Texas, and New Mexico, of which approximately 90 are on our pipeline system and approximately 40 are on third-party pipeline systems. We also own and operate a one-mile crude oil gathering line in New Mexico, which is associated with our crude oil trucking operations there. We employ approximately 270 crude oil truck drivers and own approximately 140 crude oil transport trucks. The crude oil truck drivers pick up crude oil at production lease sites and transport it to various truck unloading facilities on our pipelines and on third-party pipelines. Pipeline and Terminal Control Operations All of our refined products and crude oil pipelines are operated via satellite, microwave, and frame relay communication systems from central control rooms located in Philadelphia and Tulsa. The Philadelphia control center primarily monitors and controls our refined product pipelines, and the Tulsa control center primarily monitors and controls our crude oil pipelines. The Philadelphia control center has a backup control center at our Montello, Pennsylvania pipeline facility located approximately 50 miles from Philadelphia. The Nederland Terminal has its own control center. The control centers operate with modern, state-of-the-art System Control and Data Acquisition, or SCADA, systems. Our control centers are equipped with computer systems designed to continuously monitor real time operational data, including refined product and crude oil throughput, flow rates, and pressures. In addition, the control centers monitor alarms and throughput balances. The control centers operate remote pumps, motors, engines, and valves associated with the delivery of refined products and crude oil. The computer systems are designed to enhance leak-detection capabilities, sound automatic alarms if operational conditions outside of pre-established parameters occur, and provide for remote-controlled shutdown of pump stations on the pipelines. Pump stations and meter-measurement points along the pipelines are linked by satellite or telephone communication systems for remote monitoring and control, which reduces our requirement for full-time on-site personnel at most of these locations. 19

Acquisitions Pride Companies, L.P. Acquisition On October 1, 1999, we acquired the crude oil transportation and marketing operations of Pride Companies, L.P. ("Pride") for $29.6 million in cash and the assumption of $5.3 million of debt. The acquisition included Pride's 800-mile crude oil pipeline system, 800,000 barrels of tankage and related assets, and the right to purchase 35,000 barrels per day of third-party lease crude oil. GulfMark Acquisition. On November 1, 2001, we acquired a 54-mile, 8-inch bi-directional crude oil pipeline and a related crude oil acquisition business from GulfMark Energy, Inc. for $5.0 million in cash. The pipeline extends from Sour Lake, Texas to Baytown, Texas and complements our existing Texas Gulf Coast and East Texas pipeline system. The crude oil acquisition business handles approximately 12,000 bpd and complements our existing crude oil acquisition and marketing business. We are principally engaged in the transport, terminalling and storage of refined products and crude oil. Although we do not currently engage in business unrelated to the transportation or storage of crude oil and refined products and the other businesses described above, we may in the future consider and make acquisitions in other business areas. Competition As a result of our physical integration with Sunoco R&M's refineries and terminals, and related agreements with Sunoco, Inc., we believe that we will not face significant competition for crude oil transported to the Philadelphia, Toledo, and Tulsa refineries, or refined products transported from the Philadelphia, Marcus Hook, and Toledo refineries, particularly during the term of our pipelines and terminals storage and throughput agreement with Sunoco R&M. For further information on this agreement, please see Item 7. "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations-Agreements with Sunoco R&M and Sunoco, Inc." For the year ended December 31, 2001, Sunoco R&M accounted for approximately 66 % of our combined revenues. Eastern Pipeline System Nearly all of our Eastern Pipeline System is directly linked to Sunoco R&M's refineries. Sunoco R&M constructed or acquired these assets as the most cost-effective means to access raw materials and distribute refined products. Generally, pipelines are the lowest cost method for long-haul, overland movement of refined products. Therefore, our most significant competitors for large volume shipments in the area served by our Eastern Pipeline System are other pipelines. We believe that high capital requirements, environmental considerations, and the difficulty in acquiring rights-of-way and related permits make it hard for other companies to build competing pipelines in areas served by our pipelines. As a result, competing pipelines are likely to be built only in those cases in which strong market demand and attractive tariff rates support additional capacity in an area. Although it is unlikely that a pipeline system comparable in size and scope to our Eastern Pipeline System will be built in the foreseeable future, new pipelines (including pipeline segments that connect with existing pipeline systems, such as those operated by Colonial, Buckeye, ExxonMobil, and Inland) could be built to effectively compete with us in particular locations. In addition, we face competition from trucks that deliver product in a number of areas we serve. While their costs may not be competitive for longer hauls or large volume shipments, trucks compete effectively for incremental and marginal volumes in many areas we serve. The availability of truck transportation places a significant competitive constraint on our ability to increase our tariff rates. Explorer's primary competition is the TEPPCO pipeline, which transports petroleum products from the Beaumont, Port Arthur and Houston, Texas refining centers to Little Rock, Indianapolis, Chicago, and other markets along its route; the Seaway pipeline, a large diameter pipeline from Houston to Cushing, Oklahoma; and Centennial Pipeline, a natural gas pipeline that is being converted into a refined products pipeline and which originates near Beaumont, Texas and terminates in southern Illinois. 20

Terminal Facilities Historically, except for our Nederland Terminal, essentially all of the throughput at our terminal facilities has come from Sunoco R&M. Under the terms of our pipelines and terminals storage and throughput agreement, we will continue to receive a significant portion of the throughput at these facilities from Sunoco R&M. Our 32 inland refined product terminals compete with other independent terminal operators as well as integrated oil companies on the basis of terminal location, price, versatility, and services provided. Our competition primarily comes from integrated petroleum companies, refining and marketing companies, independent terminal companies, and distribution companies with marketing and trading arms. The primary competitors for the Nederland Terminal are its refinery customers' docks and terminal facilities, and the Unocal terminal and the Oil Tanking terminal, both located in Beaumont. We believe the Nederland Terminal has superior docking capabilities and tankage facilities, and is better connected to supply and distribution pipelines than these competing terminals. The Inkster Terminal's primary competition comes from the Marysville Underground Storage Terminal, MAP's LPG storage facility in Trenton, Michigan and BP's facilities in St. Clair, Michigan and Windsor, Canada. The Inkster Terminal enjoys a competitive advantage with respect to volumes from Sunoco R&M's Toledo refinery due to the relatively short distance between Toledo and the Inkster Terminal. We own three pipelines running between Toledo and the Inkster Terminal, which provide Sunoco R&M with additional flexibility. Western Pipeline System Our Western Pipeline System faces competition from a number of major oil companies and smaller entities. Pipeline competition among common carrier pipelines is based primarily on transportation charges, access to producing areas, and demand for the crude oil by end users. We believe that high capital costs make it unlikely for other companies to build competing crude oil pipeline systems in areas served by our pipelines. Crude oil purchasing and marketing competitive factors includes price and contract flexibility, quantity and quality of services, and accessibility to end markets. The principal competitors of the Western Pipeline System are EOTT, Plains All American, Conoco, Seminole Trading and Gathering, and TEPPCO. Inactive Assets We own approximately 367 miles of inactive trunk lines. Of those inactive trunk lines, approximately 217 miles are located in our Oklahoma pipeline system, approximately 117 miles are located in our West Texas pipeline system and approximately 32 miles are located in our Texas Gulf Coast and East Texas pipeline system. We are evaluating placing some of these pipelines back in service in the future either for the transportation of crude oil or as alternative service pipelines. Pipeline, Terminalling, and Storage Assets Retained by Sunoco, Inc. Affiliates of Sunoco, Inc. have transfered to us most of the pipeline, terminalling, storage, and related assets that support Sunoco R&M's refinery operations. Sunoco, Inc. or its affiliates have retained the assets described below because they are either interests in crude oil pipelines that may not provide consistent revenues and cash flows or are inactive. Assets That May Not Provide Consistent Revenues and Cash Flows . Mid-Valley Pipeline. A subsidiary of Sunoco, Inc. owns a 55% interest in the Mid-Valley Pipeline Company (a 50% voting interest), which owns and operates a 994-mile crude oil pipeline from Longview, Texas to Samaria, Michigan. The Mid-Valley pipeline serves a number of refineries in the Midwest United States. Because of our concern that the closure of one or more of these refineries could result in a material decline in the revenues and cash flows of Mid-Valley, we have elected not to acquire Sunoco, Inc.'s interest in Mid- Valley. We believe that Mid-Valley could be converted to a refined product pipeline and we will continue to evaluate its future prospects. 21

. West Texas Gulf Pipeline. A subsidiary of Sunoco, Inc. owns a 17% interest in West Texas Gulf Pipeline Company, which owns and operates a 581-mile crude oil pipeline from Colorado City, Texas and Nederland, Texas to Longview, Texas. West Texas Gulf supplies crude oil to Mid-Valley Pipeline. We have elected not to acquire Sunoco, Inc.'s interest in this pipeline for the reasons discussed above. . Mesa Pipeline. A subsidiary of Sunoco, Inc. owns an undivided 6% interest in the Mesa pipeline, an 80-mile crude oil pipeline from Midland, Texas to Colorado City. Mesa Pipeline connects to West Texas Gulf's pipeline, which supplies crude oil to Mid-Valley. We have elected not to acquire Sunoco, Inc.'s interest in this pipeline for the reasons discussed above. . Inland Pipeline. A subsidiary of Sunoco, Inc. owns a 10% interest in Inland Corporation, which owns and operates a 611-mile refined products pipeline from Lima and Toledo, Ohio to Canton, Cleveland, Columbus, and Dayton, Ohio. This pipeline transports refined products for Sunoco R&M from its Toledo, Ohio refinery and for the other owners. The Inland pipeline is a private intrastate pipeline that is operated at cost by the shipper-owners and does not generate profits to its owners. As a result, it will not be included in the assets transferred to us. Sunoco, Inc. has granted us a ten-year option to purchase its interest in any of the preceding assets for fair market value at the time of purchase. Sunoco, Inc.'s interests in these assets are subject to agreements with the other interest owners that include, among other things, consent requirements and rights of first refusal that may be triggered upon certain transfers. The exercise of the option with respect to any of these assets is subject to the terms and conditions of those agreements, which may or may not require consents or trigger rights of first refusal, depending on the facts and circumstances existing at the time of the option exercise. We have no current intention to purchase these assets. Assets That Are Inactive . A subsidiary of Sunoco, Inc. owns an idled 370-mile, 6-inch refined product pipeline from Icedale, Pennsylvania to Cleveland, Ohio. . A subsidiary of Sunoco, Inc. owns various crude oil pipelines and gathering systems in Louisiana, Oklahoma, and Texas that are no longer used because of a lack of crude oil supply. . A subsidiary of Sunoco, Inc. owns various refined product pipelines in the Northeast and Midwest that are no longer used because they are no longer economical to operate. Most of these lines have been idle for several years. . A subsidiary of Sunoco, Inc. owns two inactive refined product terminals in Maryland and Pennsylvania. Sunoco, Inc. idled these terminals because they were not economical to operate. Sunoco, Inc. has granted us a ten-year option to purchase the pipeline from Icedale, Pennsylvania to Cleveland, Ohio for fair market value at the time of purchase. We have no current intention to purchase this pipeline. Both of the ten-year option agreements described above are contained in the omnibus agreement that we have entered into with Sunoco, Inc., Sunoco R&M and our general partner. See Item 7. "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations-Agreements with Sunoco R&M and Sunoco, Inc." In accordance with this agreement, if we decide to exercise our option to purchase any of the assets described above, we must provide written notice to Sunoco, Inc. setting forth the fair market value we propose to pay for the asset. If Sunoco, Inc. does not agree with our proposed fair market value, we and Sunoco, Inc. will appoint a mutually agreed-upon, nationally recognized investment banking firm to determine the fair market value of the asset. Once the investment bank submits its valuation of the asset, we will have the right, but not the obligation, to purchase the asset at the price determined by the investment bank. 22

Safety Regulation Certain of our pipelines are subject to regulation by the United States Department of Transportation ("DOT") under the Hazardous Liquid Pipeline Safety Act of 1979 ("HLPSA") relating to the design, installation, testing, construction, operation, replacement and management of pipeline facilities. The HLPSA covers petroleum and petroleum products pipelines and requires any entity that owns or operates pipeline facilities to comply with such safety regulations and to permit access to and copying of records and to make certain reports and provide information as required by the Secretary of Transportation. Effective in August 1999, the DOT issued its Operator Qualification Rule, which required a written program by April 27, 2001 to ensure that operators were qualified to perform tasks covered by the pipeline safety rules. All persons performing covered tasks must be qualified under the program by October 28, 2002. We have identified the tasks that must be performed to comply with this rule and have a written plan in place as required. On December 1, 2000, the DOT issued new regulations intended by the DOT to assess the integrity of hazardous liquid pipeline segments that, in the event of a leak or failure, could adversely affect highly populated areas, areas unusually sensitive to environmental impact and commercially navigable waterways. Under the regulations, an operator is required, among other things, to conduct baseline integrity assessment tests (such as internal inspections) within seven years, conduct future integrity tests at typically five year intervals and develop and follow a written risk-based integrity management program covering the designated high consequence areas. Under the rule, pipeline operators are required to identify line segments which could impact high consequence areas by December 31, 2001, develop "Baseline Assessment Plans" for evaluating the integrity of each pipeline segment by March 31, 2002 and complete an assessment of the highest risk 50 percent of line segments by September 30, 2004, with full assessment of the remaining 50 percent by March 31, 2008. We have identified the line segments that could impact high consequence areas and have developed Baseline Assessment Plans. Employee Safety We are subject to the requirements of the United States Federal Occupational Safety and Health Act ("OSHA") and comparable state statutes that regulate the protection of the health and safety of workers. In addition, the OSHA hazard communication standard requires that certain information be maintained about hazardous materials used or produced in operations and that this information be provided to employees, state and local authorities and citizens. We believe that we are in general compliance with OSHA requirements, including general industry standards, record keeping requirements and monitoring of occupational exposure to benzene. The OSHA hazard communication standard, the EPA community right-to-know regulations under Title III of the Federal Superfund Amendment and Reauthorization Act, and comparable state statutes require us to organize information about the hazardous materials used in our operations. Certain parts of this information must be reported to employees, state and local governmental authorities, and local citizens upon request. Rate Regulation General Interstate Regulation. Our interstate common carrier pipeline operations are subject to rate regulation by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission ("FERC") under the Interstate Commerce Act. The Interstate Commerce Act requires that tariff rates for oil pipelines, a category that includes crude oil, petroleum products, and petrochemical pipelines (crude oil, petroleum product, and petrochemical pipelines are referred to collectively as "petroleum pipelines"), be just and reasonable and non-discriminatory. The Interstate Commerce Act permits challenges to proposed new or changed rates by protest, and challenges to rates that are already on file and in effect by complaint. Upon the appropriate showing, a successful complainant may obtain damages or reparations for generally up to two years prior to the filing of a complaint. The FERC is authorized to suspend the effectiveness of a new or changed tariff rate for a period of up to seven months and to investigate the rate. If upon the completion of an investigation the FERC finds that the rate is unlawful, it may require the pipeline operator to refund to shippers, with interest, any difference between the rates the FERC determines to be lawful and the rates under investigation. The FERC will order the pipeline to change its rates prospectively to the lawful level. 23

Index-Based Rates and Other Subsequent Developments. In October 1992, Congress passed the Energy Policy Act of 1992. The Energy Policy Act deemed interstate petroleum pipeline rates in effect for the 365-day period ending on the date of enactment of the Energy Policy Act, or that were in effect on the 365th day preceding enactment and had not been subject to complaint, protest, or investigation during the 365-day period, to be just and reasonable under the Interstate Commerce Act. These rates are commonly referred to as "grandfathered rates." All of our interstate pipeline rates were deemed just and reasonable and therefore are grandfathered under the Energy Policy Act. The Energy Policy Act provides that the FERC may change grandfathered rates upon complaints only under the following limited circumstances: . a substantial change has occurred since enactment in either the economic circumstances or the nature of the services that were a basis for the rate; . the complainant was contractually barred from challenging the rate prior to enactment of the Energy Policy Act and filed the complaint within 30 days of the expiration of the contractual bar; or . a provision of the tariff is unduly discriminatory or preferential. The Energy Policy Act further required the FERC to issue rules establishing a simplified and generally applicable ratemaking methodology for interstate petroleum pipelines and to streamline procedures in petroleum pipeline proceedings. On October 22, 1993, the FERC responded to the Energy Policy Act directive by issuing Order No. 561, which adopted a new indexed rate methodology for interstate petroleum pipelines. Under the resulting regulations, effective January 1, 1995, petroleum pipelines are able to change their rates within prescribed ceiling levels that are tied to changes in the Producer Price Index for Finished Goods, minus one percent ("PPI-1"). Rate increases made under the index will be subject to protest, but the scope of the protest proceeding will be limited to an inquiry into whether the portion of the rate increase resulting from application of the index is substantially in excess of the pipeline's increase in costs. The indexing methodology is applicable to any existing rate, whether grandfathered or whether established after enactment of the Energy Policy Act. The FERC recently concluded that the PPI-1 index should be continued for another five-year period. However, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia found the decision to be flawed in certain respects and remanded the matter to the FERC for further consideration. In Order No. 561, the FERC said that as a general rule pipelines must utilize the indexing methodology to change their rates. Indexing includes the requirement that, in any year in which the index is negative, pipelines must file to lower their rates if they would otherwise be above the reduced ceiling. However, the pipeline is not required to reduce its rates below the level deemed just and reasonable under the Energy Policy Act. The FERC further indicated in Order No. 561, however, that it is retaining cost-of-service ratemaking, market-based rates, and settlement rates as alternatives to the indexing approach. A pipeline can follow a cost-of-service approach when seeking to increase its rates above index levels (or when seeking to avoid lowering rates to index levels) provided that the pipeline can establish that there is a substantial divergence between the actual costs experienced by the pipeline and the rate resulting from application of the index. A pipeline can charge market-based rates if it establishes that it lacks significant market power in the affected markets. In addition, a pipeline can establish rates under settlement if agreed upon by all current shippers. As specified in Order 561 and subsequent decisions, a pipeline can seek to establish initial rates for new services through a cost-of-service showing, by establishing that it lacks significant market power in the affected markets, or through an agreement between the pipeline and at least one shipper not affiliated with the pipeline who intends to use the new service. Another development affecting petroleum pipeline ratemaking arose in Opinion No. 397, involving a partnership operating a crude oil pipeline. In Opinion No. 397, the FERC concluded that there should not be a corporate income tax allowance built into a petroleum pipeline's rates for income attributable to noncorporate partners because those partners, unlike corporate partners, do not pay a corporate income tax on partnership distributions. Opinion No. 397 was affirmed by the FERC on rehearing in May 1996. The parties subsequently settled the case, so no judicial review of the tax ruling took place. 24

A current proceeding, however, is pending at the FERC that could result in changes to the FERC's income tax method announced in Opinion No. 397 as well as to other elements of the FERC's rate methods for petroleum pipelines. This proceeding involves another publicly traded limited partnership engaged in petroleum products pipeline transportation. In January, 1999, the FERC issued Opinion No. 435 in this proceeding, which, among other things, affirmed Opinion No. 397's determination that there should not be a corporate income tax allowance built into a petroleum pipeline's rates for income attributable to noncorporate partners. In subsequent decisions on rehearing, the FERC further defined the scope of the income tax allowance for publicly traded limited partnerships, and resolved a number of other cost of service issues as well. Market-Based Rates. In a proceeding involving Buckeye Pipeline Company, L.P., the FERC found that a petroleum pipeline able to demonstrate a lack of market power may be allowed a lighter standard of regulation than that imposed by the trended original cost methodology. In such a case, the pipeline company has the opportunity to establish that it faces sufficient competition to justify relief from the strict application of the cost-based principles. In Buckeye, the FERC determined, based on the existing level of market concentration in the pipeline's market areas, that Buckeye exercised significant market power in only five of its 21 market areas and therefore was entitled to charge market-based rates in the other 16 market areas. The opportunity to charge market-based rates means that the pipeline may charge what the market will bear. Order No. 572, a companion order to Order No. 561, was issued by the FERC on October 25, 1994 and established procedural rules governing petroleum pipelines' applications for a finding that the pipeline lacks significant market power in the relevant market. Settlement Rates. In Order No. 561, the FERC specifically held that it would also permit changes in rates that are the product of unanimous agreement between the pipeline and all the shippers using the service to which the rate applies. The rationale behind allowing this type of rate change is to further the FERC's policy of favoring settlements among parties and to lessen the regulatory burdens on all concerned. The FERC, however, will also entertain a challenge to settlement rates, in response to a protest or a complaint that alleges the same circumstances required to challenge an indexed rate. An example of this type of challenge is that there is a discrepancy between the rate and the pipeline's cost of service that is so substantial as to render the settlement (or indexed) rate unjust and unreasonable. Intrastate Regulation. Some of our pipeline operations are subject to regulation by the Texas Railroad Commission, the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission, the Ohio Public Utility Commission, and the Oklahoma Corporation Commission. The applicable state statutes require that pipeline rates be non-discriminatory and provide no more than a fair return on the aggregate value of the pipeline property used to render services. State commissions have generally not been aggressive in regulating common carrier pipelines and have generally not investigated the rates or practices of petroleum pipelines in the absence of shipper complaints. Complaints to state agencies have been infrequent and are usually resolved informally. Although we cannot be certain that our intrastate rates would ultimately be upheld if challenged, we believe that, given this history, the tariffs now in effect are not likely to be challenged or, if challenged, are not likely to be ordered to be reduced. Our Pipelines. The FERC generally has not investigated interstate rates on its own initiative when those rates, like ours, have not been the subject of a protest or a complaint by a shipper. In addition, as discussed above, intrastate pipelines generally are subject to "light-handed" regulation by state commissions and we do not believe the intrastate tariffs now in effect are likely to be challenged. However, the FERC or a state regulatory commission could investigate our rates at the urging of a third party if the third party is either a current shipper or is able to show that it has a substantial economic interest in our tariff rate level. If an interstate rate were challenged, we would defend that rate as grandfathered under the Energy Policy Act. As that Act applies to our rates, a person challenging a grandfathered rate must, as a threshold matter, establish a substantial change since the date of enactment of the Act, in either the economic circumstances or the nature of the service that formed the basis for the rate. A complainant might assert that the creation of the partnership itself constitutes such a change, an argument that has not previously been specifically addressed by the FERC and to which we believe there are valid defenses. If the FERC were to find a substantial change in circumstances, then the existing rates could be subject to detailed review. We believe that most such rates can be supported on a cost of service basis, even recognizing the reduction in our income tax allowance that is likely to result from our conversion from a corporation to a partnership. Although there are some rates that might not be defensible on that basis, we believe that all of those rates involve movements as to which (1) Sunoco R&M is the only shipper, (2) we have a reasonable basis to assert that we lack significant market power and therefore are entitled to market based rates, or (3) the revenue amounts involved do not materially affect our performance. 25

If the FERC investigated our rate levels, it could inquire into our costs, including: . the overall cost of service, including operating costs and overhead; . the allocation of overhead and other administrative and general expenses to the rate; . the appropriate capital structure to be utilized in calculating rates; . the appropriate rate of return on equity; . the rate base, including the proper starting rate base; . the throughput underlying the rate; and . the proper allowance for federal and state income taxes. We do not believe that it is likely that there will be a challenge to our rates by a current shipper that would materially affect our revenues or cash flows. Sunoco R&M and its subsidiaries are the only current shippers in many of our pipelines. Sunoco R&M has agreed not to challenge, or to cause others to challenge or assist others in challenging, our tariff rates for the term of the pipelines and terminals storage and throughput agreement. Because most of our pipelines are common carrier pipelines, we may be required to accept new shippers who wish to transport in our pipelines. It is possible that any new shippers, current shippers, or other interested parties, may decide to challenge our tariff rates. If any rate challenge or challenges were successful, our cash available for distribution could be materially reduced. Environmental Regulation General Our operation of pipelines, terminals, and associated facilities in connection with the storage and transportation of refined products, crude oil, and other liquid hydrocarbons are subject to stringent and complex federal, state, and local laws and regulations governing the discharge of materials into the environment, or otherwise relating to the protection of the environment. As with the industry generally, compliance with existing and anticipated laws and regulations increases our overall cost of business, including our capital costs to construct, maintain, and upgrade equipment and facilities. While these laws and regulations affect our maintenance capital expenditures and net income, we believe that they do not affect our competitive position in that the operations of our competitors are similarly affected. We believe that our operations are in substantial compliance with applicable environmental laws and regulations. However, these laws and regulations are subject to frequent change by regulatory authorities, and we are unable to predict the ongoing cost to us of complying with these laws and regulations or the future impact of these laws and regulations on our operations. Violation of environmental laws, regulations, and permits can result in the imposition of significant administrative, civil and criminal penalties, injunctions, and construction bans or delays. A discharge of hydrocarbons or hazardous substances into the environment could, to the extent the event is not insured, subject us to substantial expense, including both the cost to comply with applicable laws and regulations and claims made by neighboring landowners and other third parties for personal injury and property damage. Under the terms of our omnibus agreement with Sunoco, Inc., and in connection with the contribution of our assets by affiliates of Sunoco, Inc., Sunoco, Inc. agreed to indemnify us for 30 years from environmental and toxic tort liabilities related to the assets transferred to us that arise from the operation of such assets prior to the closing of our initial public offering on February 8, 2002. Sunoco, Inc. is obligated to indemnify us for 100% of all such losses asserted within the first 21 years of closing. Sunoco, Inc.'s share of liability for claims asserted thereafter will decrease by 10% a year. For example, for a claim asserted during the twenty-third year after closing, Sunoco, Inc. would be required to indemnify us for 80% of our loss. There is no monetary cap on the amount of indemnity coverage provided by Sunoco, Inc. Any remediation liabilities not covered by this indemnity will be our responsibility. 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 our liability at multi-party sites, if any, in light of the number, participation levels, and financial viability of other parties. We have agreed to indemnify Sunoco, Inc. and its affiliates for events and conditions associated with the operation of our assets that occur on or after the closing of the initial public offering and for environmental and toxic tort liabilities related to our assets to the extent Sunoco, Inc. is not required to indemnify us. 26

Air Emissions Our operations are subject to the Clean Air Act and comparable state and local statutes. Amendments to the Clean Air Act enacted in late 1990 as well as recent or soon to be adopted changes to state implementation plans for controlling air emissions in regional, non-attainment areas require or will require most industrial operations in the United States to incur capital expenditures in order to meet air emission control standards developed by the Environmental Protection Agency and state environmental agencies. As a result of these amendments, our facilities that emit volatile organic compounds or nitrogen oxides are subject to increasingly stringent regulations, including requirements that some sources install maximum or reasonably available control technology. In addition, the 1990 Clean Air Act Amendments established a new operating permit for major sources, which applies to some of our facilities. We will be required to incur certain capital expenditures in the next several years for air pollution control equipment in connection with maintaining or obtaining permits and approvals addressing air emission related issues. Although we can give no assurances, we believe implementation of the 1990 Clean Air Act Amendments will not have a material adverse effect on our financial condition or results of operations. Our customers are also subject to, and affected by, environmental regulations. Since the late 1990s, the EPA has undertaken significant enforcement initiatives under authority of the Clean Air Act's New Source Review and Prevention of Significant Deterioration, or NSR/PSD, program in an effort to further reduce annual emissions of volatile organic compounds, nitrogen oxides, sulfur dioxide, and particulate matter. These enforcement initiatives have been targeted at industries that have large manufacturing facilities and that are significant sources of emissions, such as refining, paper and pulp, and electric power generating industries. The basic premise of the enforcement initiative is the EPA's assertion that many of these industrial establishments have modified or expanded their operations over time without complying with NSR/PSD regulations adopted by the EPA that require permits and new emission controls in connection with any significant facility modifications or expansions that can result in emissions increases above certain thresholds. Where the EPA finds that a company or facility has modified or expanded its operations without complying with the requirements of the NSR/PSD program, it may bring an enforcement action against the company or facility to require installation of the emissions controls that the agency deems necessary, and it may also seek to impose fines and penalties for failure to comply with NSR/PSD requirements. As part of this on-going NSR/PSD enforcement initiative, the EPA has entered into consent agreements with several refiners that require the refiners to make significant capital expenditures to install emissions control equipment at selected facilities. In certain instances, these additional controls would be required to comply with other provisions of the Clean Air Act or other federal or state regulations at a later date, but the effect of these consent agreements is to require the installation of air emission controls earlier than they might otherwise be required. The cost of the required emissions control equipment can be significant, depending on the size, age, and configuration of the refinery. Sunoco R&M received information requests from the EPA relating to capital projects that have taken place at Sunoco R&M's refineries since 1980. Pursuant to the NSR/PSD enforcement initiative, on December 20, 2001, Sunoco R&M received notices of violation from the EPA relating to its Marcus Hook, Philadelphia, and Toledo refineries. Although Sunoco R&M believes that it has not violated the related Clean Air Act requirements, it is currently evaluating the notices of violation for all three refineries to determine how it will respond. In resolving these notices of violation, Sunoco R&M could be required to make significant capital expenditures, operate these refineries at reduced levels, and pay significant penalties. If Sunoco R&M determines it is uneconomical to operate its refineries under such conditions and as a result shuts down or reconfigures all or a portion of one of more of its refineries, its obligations under the pipelines and terminals storage and throughput agreement would be reduced, which would reduce our ability to make distributions to our unitholders. 27

Under the Clean Air Act, the EPA and state agencies acting with authority delegated by the EPA have announced new rules or the intent to strengthen existing rules affecting the composition of motor vehicle fuels and automobile emissions. The EPA's Gasoline Sulfur Control Requirements require that the sulfur content of motor vehicle gasoline be reduced to 80 parts per million and the corporate average sulfur content be reduced to 30 parts per million by 2006. Likewise, the EPA's Diesel Fuel Sulfur Control Requirements require that the sulfur content of diesel fuel be reduced to 15 parts per million by 2006. The rules include banking and trading credit systems, which could provide refiners flexibility until 2006 for the low-sulfur gasoline and until 2010 for the low-sulfur diesel. These rules are expected to have a significant impact on Sunoco R&M and its operations primarily with respect to the capital and operating expenditures at the Philadelphia, Marcus Hook, and Toledo refineries. Most of the capital spending is likely to occur in the 2002-2006 period, while the higher operating costs will be incurred when the low-sulfur fuels are produced. Sunoco R&M estimates that the total capital outlays to comply with the new gasoline and diesel requirements will be in the range of $300-$400 million. The ultimate impact of the rules may be affected by such factors as technology selection, the effectiveness of the banking and trading credit systems, production mix, timing uncertainties created by permitting requirements and construction schedules, and any effect on prices created by changes in the level of gasoline and diesel fuel production. The EPA is also reportedly considering limiting the levels of benzene and other toxic substances in gasoline as well as banning methyl tertiary-butyl ether, also known as MTBE, in gasoline, which may require the use of other chemical additives to serve as oxygenates instead of MTBE. Legal mandates to use alternative fuels may also have a direct and potentially adverse impact on our revenues. For example, under the Energy Policy Act of 1992, 75% of new vehicles purchased by certain federal and state government fleets must use alternative fuels and New York has adopted standards requiring that by the year 2003, 10% of fleets delivered be zero-emissions vehicles; and under the Clean Air Act, 50% to 70% (depending on vehicle weight) of new vehicles in clean air non-attainment areas purchased by certain federal, state, municipal, and private fleets must use some type of alternative fuels beginning in 2001. Also, some states and local governments, including, for example, Texas, have adopted "boutique" fuel standards to comply with clean air requirements. "Boutique" fuels pose distribution problems because refiners must produce different blends for different communities. During 2001, the EPA issued its final rule addressing emissions of toxic air pollutants from mobile sources (the Mobile Source Air Toxics ("MSAT") Rule). The rule is currently being challenged by certain environmental organizations and a number of states, and by a member of the petroleum industry. It requires refiners to produce gasoline that maintains their average 1998-2000 gasoline toxic emission performance level. If the rule survives the challenges and if MTBE is banned, it could result in additional expenditures by Sunoco R&M or reductions in its reformulated gasoline production levels. It is uncertain what Sunoco, Inc. or Sunoco R&M's responses to these emerging issues will be. Those responses could reduce Sunoco R&M's obligations under the pipelines and terminals storage and throughput agreement, thereby reducing the throughput in our pipelines, our cash flow, and our ability to make distributions. Hazardous Substances and Waste To a large extent, the environmental laws and regulations affecting our operations relate to the release of hazardous substances or solid wastes into soils, groundwater, and surface water, and include measures to control pollution of the environment. These laws generally regulate the generation, storage, treatment, transportation, and disposal of solid and hazardous waste. They also require corrective action, including the investigation and remediation, of certain units at a facility where such waste may have been released or disposed. For instance, the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act, referred to as CERCLA and also known as Superfund, and comparable state laws impose liability, without regard to fault or the legality of the original conduct, on certain classes of persons that contributed to the release of a "hazardous substance" into the environment. These persons include the owner or operator of the site where the release occurred and companies that disposed or arranged for the disposal of the hazardous substances found at the site. Under CERCLA, these persons may be subject to joint and several liability for the costs of cleaning up the hazardous substances that have been released into the environment, for damages to natural resources, and for the costs of certain health studies. CERCLA also authorizes the EPA and, in some instances, third parties to act in response to threats to the public health or the environment and to seek to recover from the responsible classes of persons the costs they incur. It is not uncommon for neighboring landowners and other third parties to file claims for personal injury and property damage allegedly caused by hazardous substances or other pollutants released into the environment. In the course of our ordinary operations, we may 28

generate waste that falls within CERCLA's definition of a "hazardous substance" and, as a result, may be jointly and severally liable under CERCLA for all or part of the costs required to clean up sites at which these hazardous substances have been released into the environment. We are currently identified as a potentially responsible party ("PRP") at two sites in Michigan by the Michigan Department of Natural Resources and at one site in New York by the EPA in connection with alleged past transport of petroleum product wastes to, and subsequent release of such wastes at, these sites. We believe that any costs incurred by us in connection with remedial action at these sites will not have a material adverse impact on our operations. In addition, while we are not identified as a PRP at the Higgins Farm Superfund site in Somerset County, New Jersey, a PRP-defendant group has filed a suit against us, seeking contribution for remediation costs in connection with an ongoing cleanup of that site. We believe this cost recovery suit to be without merit and are vigorously contesting this matter. Costs for these remedial actions, if any as well as any related claims are all covered by an indemnity from Sunoco, Inc. For more information, please see "Environmental Remediation". We also generate solid wastes, including hazardous wastes, that are subject to the requirements of the federal Resource Conservation and Recovery Act, referred to as RCRA, and comparable state statutes. From time to time, the EPA considers the adoption of stricter disposal standards for non-hazardous wastes, including crude oil and gas wastes. We are not currently required to comply with a substantial portion of the RCRA requirements because our operations generate minimal quantities of hazardous wastes. However, it is possible that additional wastes, which could include wastes currently generated during operations, will in the future be designated as "hazardous wastes." Hazardous wastes are subject to more rigorous and costly disposal requirements than are non-hazardous wastes. Any changes in the regulations could have a material adverse effect on our maintenance capital expenditures and operating expenses. We currently own or lease, and our predecessor has in the past owned or leased, properties where hydrocarbons are being or have been handled for many years. Although we have utilized operating and disposal practices that were standard in the industry at the time, hydrocarbons or other waste may have been disposed of or released on or under the properties owned or leased by us or on or under other locations where these wastes have been taken for disposal. In addition, many of these properties have been operated by third parties whose treatment and disposal or release of hydrocarbons or other wastes was not under our control. These properties and wastes disposed thereon may be subject to CERCLA, RCRA, and analogous state laws. Under these laws, we could be required to remove or remediate previously disposed wastes (including wastes disposed of or released by prior owners or operators), to clean up contaminated property (including contaminated groundwater), or to perform remedial operations to prevent future contamination. We are currently involved in remediation activities at numerous sites, which involve significant expense. These remediation activities are all covered by an indemnity from Sunoco, Inc. For more information, please see "Environmental Remediation." Water Our operations can result in the discharge of pollutants, including crude oil. The Oil Pollution Act was enacted in 1990 and amends provisions of the Water Pollution Control Act of 1972 and other statutes as they pertain to prevention and response to oil spills. The Oil Pollution Act subjects owners of covered facilities to strict, joint, and potentially unlimited liability for removal costs and other consequences of an oil spill, where the spill is into navigable waters, along shorelines or in the exclusive economic zone of the United States. In the event of an oil spill into navigable waters, substantial liabilities could be imposed upon us. States in which we operate have also enacted similar laws. Regulations are currently being developed under the Oil Pollution Act and state laws that may also impose additional regulatory burdens on our operations. Spill prevention control and countermeasure requirements of federal laws and some state laws require diking and similar structures to help prevent contamination of navigable waters in the event of an oil overflow, rupture, or leak. We are in substantial compliance with these laws. Additionally, the Office of Pipeline Safety of the DOT has approved our oil spill emergency response plans. The Water Pollution Control Act of 1972 imposes restrictions and strict controls regarding the discharge of pollutants into navigable waters. Permits must be obtained to discharge pollutants into state and federal waters. The Water Pollution Control Act of 1972 imposes substantial potential liability for the costs of removal, remediation, and damages. In addition, some states maintain groundwater protection programs that require permits for discharges or operations that may impact groundwater conditions. We believe that compliance with existing permits and compliance with foreseeable new permit requirements will not have a material adverse effect on our financial condition or results of operations. 29

Endangered Species Act The Endangered Species Act restricts activities that may affect endangered species or their habitats. While some of our facilities are in areas that may be designated as habitat for endangered species, we believe that we are in substantial compliance with the Endangered Species Act. However, the discovery of previously unidentified endangered species could cause us to incur additional costs or become subject to operating restrictions or bans in the affected area. Environmental Remediation Contamination resulting from spills of refined products and crude oil is not unusual within the petroleum pipeline industry. Historic spills along our pipelines, gathering systems, and terminals as a result of past operations have resulted in contamination of the environment, including soils and groundwater. Site conditions, including soils and groundwater, are being evaluated at a number of our properties where operations may have resulted in releases of hydrocarbons and other wastes. Moreover, at December 31, 2001, potentially significant assessment, monitoring, and remediation programs are being performed at some 19 sites in Michigan, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, and Pennsylvania. These 19 sites include eight terminals and two tank farms owned by us (River Rouge and Owosso Terminals in Michigan; Newark Terminal in New Jersey; Dayton Terminal in Ohio; and Belmont, Kingston, Montello, and Pittsburgh Terminals and Darby Creek Tank Farm and Marcus Hook Tank Farm in Pennsylvania) and nine third-party locations (in Camden County in New Jersey; in Livingston and Chemung Counties in New York; and in Chester, Delaware, Lancaster, Lebanon, and Luzerne Counties, in Pennsylvania) that were impacted by pipe line or pump station releases of crude oil or petroleum products. We estimate that the total aggregate cost of performing the currently anticipated assessment, monitoring and remediation at these 19 sites to be $8.6 million. This estimate assumes that we will be able to achieve regulatory closure at these sites between the years 2002 and 2010 by using common remedial and monitoring methods or associated engineering or institutional controls to demonstrate compliance with applicable cleanup standards. This estimate covers the costs of performing assessment, remediation, and/or monitoring of impacted soils, groundwater and surface water conditions, but does not include any costs for potential claims by others with respect to these sites. While we do not expect any such potential claims by others to be materially adverse to our operations, financial position, or cash flows, we cannot be certain that the actual remediation costs or associated remediation liabilities will not exceed this $8.6 million amount. With respect to the February 2000 pipeline release of crude oil into the John Heinz National Wildlife Refuge in Philadelphia, one of the 19 sites where potentially significant environmental liability exists, we have conducted remedial activities at the release area and have initiated restoration efforts in the area, including establishment of a new wetlands area. We expect the EPA to assess a penalty with respect to the February 2000 pipeline release which could exceed $100,000. Sunoco, Inc. has agreed to indemnify us from environmental and toxic tort liabilities related to the assets transferred to us to the extent such liabilities exist or arise from operation of these assets prior to the closing of our initial public offering and are asserted within 30 years after the closing of our initial public offering. This indemnity will cover the costs associated with performance of the assessment, monitoring, and remediation programs, as well as any related claims and penalties, at the 19 sites referenced above. See "Environmental Regulation, General." We may experience future releases of refined products or crude oil into the environment from our pipelines, gathering systems, and terminals, or discover historical releases that were previously unidentified or not assessed. While we maintain an extensive inspection and audit program designed, as applicable, to prevent and to detect and address these releases promptly, damages and liabilities incurred due to any future environmental releases from our assets nevertheless have the potential to substantially affect our business. 30

Title to Properties Substantially all of our pipelines were constructed on rights-of-way granted by the apparent record owners of the property and in some instances these rights-of-way are revocable at the election of the grantor. Several rights-of-way for our pipelines and other real property assets are shared with other pipelines and other assets owned by affiliates of Sunoco, Inc. and by third parties. In many instances, lands over which rights-of-way have been obtained are subject to prior liens that have not been subordinated to the right-of-way grants. We have obtained permits from public authorities to cross over or under, or to lay facilities in or along, watercourses, county roads, municipal streets, and state highways and, in some instances, these permits are revocable at the election of the grantor. We have also obtained permits from railroad companies to cross over or under lands or rights-of-way, many of which are also revocable at the grantor's election. In some cases, property for pipeline purposes was purchased in fee. In some states and under some circumstances, we have the right of eminent domain to acquire rights-of-way and lands necessary for our common carrier pipelines. The previous owners of the applicable pipelines may not have commenced or concluded eminent domain proceedings for some rights-of-way. Some of the leases, easements, rights-of-way, permits, and licenses transferred to us upon the completion of our initial public offering in February 2002 required the consent of the grantor to transfer these rights, which in some instances is a governmental entity. We have obtained or are in the process of obtaining third-party consents, permits, and authorizations sufficient for the transfer to us of the assets necessary for us to operate our business in all material respects. With respect to any consents, permits, or authorizations that have not been obtained, the failure to obtain these consents, permits, or authorizations will have no material adverse effect on the operation of our business. We have satisfactory title to all of our assets, or are entitled to indemnification from Sunoco, Inc. under the omnibus agreement for title defects to the assets contributed to us and for failures to obtain certain consents and permits necessary to conduct our business that arise within ten years after the closing of our initial public offering. Record title to some of our assets may continue to be held by affiliates of Sunoco, Inc. until we have made the appropriate filings in the jurisdictions in which such assets are located and obtained any consents and approvals that were not obtained prior to the closing of our initial public offering. Although title to these properties is subject to encumbrances in some cases, such as customary interests generally retained in connection with acquisition of real property, liens that can be imposed in some jurisdictions for government-initiated action to clean up environmental contamination, liens for current taxes and other burdens, and easements, restrictions, and other encumbrances to which the underlying properties were subject at the time of acquisition by our predecessor or us, none of these burdens should materially detract from the value of these properties or from our interest in these properties or should materially interfere with their use in the operation of our business. Employees To carry out our operations, our general partner and its affiliates employ approximately 1,160 people who provide direct support to our operations. Labor unions or associations represent approximately 660 of these employees. Our general partner considers its employee relations to be good. Our partnership has no employees (d) Financial Information about Geographical Areas We have no significant amounts of revenue or segment profit or loss attributable to international activities. ITEM 2. PROPERTIES See Item 1.(c) for a description of the locations and general character of our material properties. ITEM 3. LEGAL PROCEEDINGS With respect to a pipeline release of crude oil in February 2000 in the John Heinz National Wildlife Refuge in Philadelphia, we have conducted remedial activities at the release area and have initiated restoration efforts in the 31

area. We expect the Environmental Protection Agency ("EPA") to assess a penalty with respect to this release that could exceed $100,000. Sunoco, Inc. has agreed to indemnify us, among other things, for any penalty that may be assessed. See Item 7. "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations-Agreements with Sunoco R&M and Sunoco, Inc." There are other legal and administrative proceedings pending against our Sunoco, Inc. 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, Inc. has agreed to indemnify us for any losses we may suffer as a result of such currently pending legal actions. As a result, we believe that any liabilities arising from such currently pending proceedings are not likely to be material in relation to our consolidated financial position at December 31, 2001. ITEM 4. SUBMISSION OF MATTERS TO A VOTE OF SECURITY HOLDERS No matters were submitted to a vote of the security holders, through solicitation of proxies or otherwise. 32

PART II ITEM 5. MARKET FOR REGISTRANT'S COMMON EQUITY AND RELATED STOCKHOLDER MATTERS Our common units were listed on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol "SXL" beginning on February 5, 2002. Prior to February 5, 2002, our equity securities were not traded on any public trading market. At the close of business on February 28, 2002, we had 12 holders of record of our common units. These holders of record included our general partner with 5,633,639 common units registered in its name, and Cede & Co. with 5,745,300 common units (representing approximately 5,000 beneficial owners) registered to it. The high and low sales price ranges (composite transactions) from February 5, 2002 (the day our common units began trading) through March 25, 2002, are set forth below. No cash distributions have been declared. High Low ---- --- February 5, 2002 through March 25, 2002 .................. $23.70 $19.70 We have also issued 11,383,639 subordinated units, all of which are held by our general partner and for which there is no established public trading market. We will distribute all of our cash on hand within 45 days after the end of each quarter, beginning with the quarter ending March 31, 2002, less reserves established by our general partner in its discretion. This is defined as "available cash" in our partnership agreement. Our general partner has broad discretion to establish cash reserves that it determines are necessary or appropriate to properly conduct our business. We will make minimum quarterly distributions of $0.45 per common unit, to the extent we have sufficient cash from operations after establishment of cash reserves and payment of fees and expenses, including payments to our general partner. We will prorate and adjust the minimum quarterly distribution for the period from February 8, 2002 (the closing date of our initial public offering) through March 31, 2002 based on the actual number of days in the period. During the subordination period we will, in general, pay cash distributions each quarter in the following manner: . First, 98% to the holders of common units and 2% to the general partner, until each common unit has received a minimum quarterly distribution of $0.45, plus any arrearages from prior quarters; . Second, 98% to the holders of subordinated units and 2% to the general partner, until each subordinated unit has received a minimum quarterly distribution of $0.45; and . Thereafter, in the manner described in the table below. The subordination period is generally defined as the period that ends on the first day of any quarter beginning after December 31, 2006 if (1) we have distributed at least the minimum quarterly distribution on all outstanding units with respect to each of the immediately preceding three consecutive, non-overlapping four quarter periods; and (2) our adjusted operating surplus, as defined in our partnership agreement, during such periods equals or exceeds the amount that would have been sufficient to enable us to distribute the minimum quarterly distribution on all outstanding units on a fully diluted basis and the related distribution on the 2% general partner interest during those periods. In addition, one-quarter of the subordinated units may convert to common units on a one-for-one basis after December 31, 2004, and one-quarter of the subordinated units may convert to common units on a one-for-one basis after December 31, 2005, if we meet the tests set forth in our partnership agreement. If the subordination period ends, the rights of the holders of subordinated units will no longer be subordinated to the rights of the holders of common units and the subordinated units may be converted into common units. 33

After the subordination period we will, in general, pay cash distributions each quarter in the following manner: . First, 98% to all unitholders, pro rata, and 2% to the general partner, until we distribute for each outstanding unit an amount equal to the minimum quarterly distribution for that quarter; and . Thereafter, as described in the paragraph and table below. As presented in the table below, if cash distributions exceed $0.50 per unit in a quarter, our general partner will receive increasing percentages, up to 50%, of the cash we distribute in excess of that amount. We refer to these distributions as "incentive distributions." The amounts shown in the table below under "Percentage of Distributions" are the percentage interests of our general partner and the unitholders in any available cash from operating surplus we distribute up to and including the corresponding amount in the column "Quarterly Distribution Amount per Unit," until the available cash that we distribute reaches the next target distribution level, if any. 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. Quarterly Distribution Percentage of Distribution -------------------------- ---------------------------------- Amount per Unit --------------- Unitholders General Partner ----------- --------------- ------------------------------------------------------------------ $0.450 98% 2% ------------------------------------------------------------------ Up to $0.500 98% 2% ------------------------------------------------------------------ Above $0.500 up to $0.575 85% 15% ------------------------------------------------------------------ Above $0.575 up to $0.700 75% 25% ------------------------------------------------------------------ Above $0.700 50% 50% ------------------------------------------------------------------ There is no guarantee that we will pay the minimum quarterly distribution on the common units in any quarter, and we will be prohibited from making any distributions to unitholders if it would cause an event of default, or an event of default is existing, under our credit facility or the senior notes (Please see Item 7. "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations - Liquidity and Capital Resources"). Use of Proceeds On February 4, 2002, our Registration Statement on Form S-1 (Registration No. 333-71968), filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission, became effective. Pursuant to the Registration Statement, on February 4, 2002, we sold 5,000,000 common units to the public at a price of $20.25 per unit for aggregate gross proceeds of $101.3 million. Subsequent to the initial public offering, the underwriters exercised their over-allotment option for 750,000 additional common units at a price of $20.25 per unit for aggregate gross proceeds of $15.1 million. Underwriting fees paid in connection with these transactions were $6.7 million and $1.0 million, respectively. On February 8, 2002, the closing date of our initial public offering, we received net proceeds of $108.7 million (including proceeds of the over-allotment option). The aggregate offering price of 5,750,000 Common Units was $116.4 million, and the aggregate underwriting fees were $7.7 million. We used approximately $6.4 million of the net proceeds to pay expenses associated with the initial public offering and related formation transactions, which consisted primarily of legal, accounting and other professional services costs. The remaining $102.3 million of net proceeds is being used to increase working capital to the level necessary for the operation of our business, thereby establishing working capital that was not contributed to us by Sunoco, Inc. in connection with our formation. The underwriters of our initial public offering were Lehman Brothers, Salomon Smith Barney, UBS Warburg, Banc of America Securities, Wachovia Securities and Credit Suisse First Boston. In addition, concurrent with the closing of the initial public offering, Sunoco Logistics Partners Operations L.P., our wholly owned operating subsidiary, issued $250.0 million of 7.25% Senior Notes due 2012 ("Notes") in an offering exempt from registration under the Securities Act of 1933. The notes were issued at a price of 99.325% of their principal amount. Gross proceeds from this offering were $248.3 million and aggregate underwriting discounts and commissions were $1.6 million. Net proceeds were $246.7 million. Expenses incurred in connection with the issuance of the Notes were approximately $1.4 million, which consisted primarily of legal, accounting and other professional services costs. The initial purchasers of the Notes were Lehman Brothers, Credit Suisse First Boston, Salomon Smith Barney, UBS Warburg, Banc of America Securities and Wachovia Securities. The $245.3 million of net proceeds from the sale of the Notes were distributed to Sunoco, Inc. and its affiliates. 34

ITEM 6. SELECTED FINANCIAL DATA On February 8, 2002, we completed our initial public offering and related transactions whereby we became the successor to a substantial portion of the wholly-owned logistics operations of Sunoco, Inc. and its subsidiaries. The selected financial data for Sunoco Logistics Partners L.P. for 1998, 1999, 2000 and 2001 are derived from the audited combined financial statements of Sunoco Logistics Partners L.P., which reflect historical cost-basis amounts of Sunoco Logistics (Predecessor), our predecessor. The selected financial data for Sunoco Logistics Partners L.P. for 1997 are derived from the unaudited combined financial statements of our predecessor. We define EBITDA as operating income plus depreciation and amortization. EBITDA provides additional information for evaluating our ability to make the minimum quarterly distribution and is presented solely as a supplemental measure. You should not consider EBITDA as an alternative to net income, income before income taxes, cash flows from operations, or any other measure of financial performance presented in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States. Our EBITDA may not be comparable to EBITDA or similarly titled measures of other entities as other entities may not calculate EBITDA in the same manner as we do. For the periods presented, Sunoco R&M was the primary or exclusive user of our inland refined product terminals, our Fort Mifflin Terminal Complex, and our Marcus Hook Tank Farm. Historically, most of the terminalling and throughput services provided by Sunoco Logistics (Predecessor) for Sunoco R&M's refining and marketing operations were at fees that enabled us to recover our costs, but not to generate any operating income. Accordingly, historical EBITDA for those assets was equal to their depreciation and amortization. Maintenance capital expenditures are capital expenditures made to replace partially or fully depreciated assets in order to maintain the existing operating capacity of our assets and to extend their useful lives. Expansion capital expenditures are capital expenditures made to expand the existing operating capacity of our assets, whether through construction or acquisition. We treat repair and maintenance expenditures that do not extend the useful life of existing assets as operating expenses as we incur them. The maintenance capital expenditures for the periods presented include several one-time projects to upgrade our technology, increase reliability, and lower our cost structure. Throughput is the total number of barrels per day transported on a pipeline system or through a terminal and includes barrels ultimately transported to a delivery point on another pipeline system. 35

"Financial Statements and Supplementary Data." The table should be read together with Item 7. "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations."

ITEM 7. MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS The following discussion of the financial condition and results of operations of Sunoco Logistics L.P. should be read in conjunction with the combined financial statements of Sunoco Logistics Partners L.P. Among other things, those financial statements include more detailed information regarding the basis of presentation for the following information. Introduction We are a Delaware limited partnership formed on October 15, 2001 to acquire, own, and operate refined product pipelines, terminalling and storage assets, crude oil pipelines, and crude oil acquisition and marketing assets located in the Northeast and Midwest United States. Most of these assets support Sunoco, Inc. (R&M), a wholly owned refining and marketing subsidiary of Sunoco, Inc. ("Sunoco R&M"). General We conduct business through three segments: our Eastern Pipeline System, our Terminal Facilities, and our Western Pipeline System. Our Eastern Pipeline System primarily transports refined products in the Northeast and Midwest United States largely for three of Sunoco R&M's refineries and transports crude oil in Ohio and Michigan. This system also includes our interrefinery pipeline between Sunoco R&M's Marcus Hook and Philadelphia refineries and our 9.4% ownership interest in Explorer Pipeline Company, a joint venture that owns a refined product pipeline located in the Midwest United States. Our Terminal Facilities business includes our network of 32 refined product terminals in the Northeast and Midwest United States that distribute products primarily to Sunoco R&M's retail outlets, our Nederland marine crude oil terminal on the Texas Gulf Coast, and a liquefied petroleum gas ("LPG") storage facility in the Midwest. Our Terminal Facilities business also owns and operates refinery related assets, including one inland and two marine crude oil terminals and related pipelines that supply all of the crude oil processed by Sunoco R&M's Philadelphia refinery and a refined product storage terminal used by Sunoco R&M's Marcus Hook refinery. Our Western Pipeline System owns and operates crude oil trunk and gathering pipelines and purchases and markets crude oil primarily in Oklahoma and Texas for Sunoco R&M's Tulsa, Oklahoma and Toledo, Ohio refineries and for other customers. Eastern Pipeline System We generate revenue by charging shippers tariffs for transporting refined products and crude oil through our pipelines. The amount of revenue we generate depends on the level of these tariffs and the throughput in our pipelines. When transporting barrels, we charge a tariff based on the point of origin and the ultimate destination, even if the barrel moves through more than one pipeline segment to reach its destination. For example, on the Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to Buffalo, New York pipeline segment, we have separate tariffs depending on whether the ultimate destination from Philadelphia is Rochester, New York or Buffalo, New York. The tariffs for our interstate common carrier pipelines are regulated by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission ("FERC"). The rate making methodology for these pipelines is price indexing. This methodology provides for increases in tariff rates based upon changes in the producer price index. Competition, however, may constrain the tariffs we charge. We also lease to Sunoco R&M, for a fixed amount escalating annually at 1.67%, three pipelines between Sunoco R&M's Marcus Hook and Philadelphia refineries, as well as a pipeline from our Paulsboro terminal to the Philadelphia International Airport for the delivery of jet fuel. The crude oil and refined product throughput in our pipelines is directly affected by the level of supply and demand for crude oil and refined products in the markets served directly or indirectly by our pipelines. Demand for gasoline in most markets peaks during the summer driving season, which extends from April to September, and declines during the fall and winter months. Demand for heating oil and other distillate fuels tends to peak during the winter heating season, and declines during the spring and summer months. The supply of crude oil to our Eastern Pipeline System depends upon the level of crude oil production in Canada, which has increased in recent years. Demand for crude oil transported to refineries for processing is driven by refining margins (the price of refined products compared to the price of crude oil and refining costs), unscheduled downtime at refineries and the amount of turnaround activity, when refiners shut down selected portions of the refinery for scheduled maintenance. 37

The operating income generated by our Eastern Pipeline System depends not only on the volumes transported on the pipelines and the level of the tariff charged, but also on the fixed costs and, to a much lesser extent, the variable costs of operating the pipelines. Fixed costs are typically related to maintenance, insurance, control rooms, telecommunications, pipeline field and support personnel and depreciation. Variable costs, such as fuel and power costs to run pump stations along the pipelines, fluctuate with throughput. Terminal Facilities Historically, most of the terminalling and throughput services we have provided for Sunoco R&M were at fees that enabled us to recover our costs but not generate operating income. Upon the closing of our initial public offering in February 2002, we entered into a pipelines and terminals storage and throughput agreement with Sunoco R&M under which we charge Sunoco R&M fees comparable to those charged in arm's-length, third-party transactions. Under this agreement, Sunoco R&M pays us a minimum level of revenues for terminalling refined products and crude oil and agrees to certain minimum throughputs at our Inkster Terminal, Fort Mifflin Terminal Complex, and Marcus Hook Tank Farm. (See "Agreements with Sunoco R&M and Sunoco, Inc." and Item 13. "Certain Relationships and Related Transactions.") Under this agreement, operating income from terminalling and storage activities depends on throughput and storage volume and the level of fees charged for terminalling and storage services, as well as the fixed and variable costs of operating these facilities. We generate revenue at our Nederland Terminal by charging storage and throughput fees for crude oil and other petroleum products. The operating income generated at this facility depends on storage and throughput volumes and the level of fees charged for these services, as well as the fixed and variable costs of operating the terminal. The absolute price level of crude oil and refined products does not directly affect terminalling and storage fees, although they are affected by the absolute levels of supply and demand for these products. Western Pipeline System The Western Pipeline System consists of our crude oil pipelines and gathering systems as well as our crude oil acquisition and marketing operations. The factors affecting the operating results of our crude oil pipelines and gathering systems are substantially similar to the factors affecting the operating results of our pipelines in the Eastern Pipeline System described above. The operating results of our crude oil acquisition and marketing operations are dependent on our ability to sell crude oil at a price in excess of our aggregate cost. We believe gross margin, which is equal to sales and other operating revenue less cost of products sold and operating expenses and depreciation and amortization, is a key measure of financial performance for the Western Pipeline System. Our crude oil acquisition and marketing operations generate substantial revenues and cost of sales because they reflect the sales price and cost of the significant volumes of crude oil we buy and sell. However, the absolute price levels for crude oil normally do not bear a relationship to gross margin, although these price levels significantly impact revenues and cost of products sold. As a result, period-to-period variations in revenues and cost of sales are not generally meaningful in analyzing the variation in gross margin for our crude oil acquisition and marketing operations. In general, we purchase crude oil at the wellhead from local producers and in bulk at major pipeline connection and marketing points. We also enter into transactions with third parties in which we exchange one grade of crude oil for another grade that more nearly matches our delivery requirement or the preferences of our customers. Bulk purchases and sales and exchange transactions are characterized by large volumes and much smaller margins than are sales of crude oil purchased at the wellhead. As we purchase crude oil, we establish a margin by selling or exchanging the crude oil for physical delivery of other crude oil to Sunoco R&M and third-party customers, such as independent 38

refiners or major oil companies, thereby reducing exposure to price fluctuations. This margin is determined by the difference between the price of crude oil at the point of purchase and the price of crude oil at the point of sale, minus the associated costs related to acquisition and transportation. Changes in the absolute price level for crude oil do not materially impact our margin, as we attempt to maintain positions that are substantially balanced between crude oil purchases and sales. Because we attempt to maintain balanced positions, we are able to minimize basis risk, which occurs when crude oil is purchased based on a crude oil specification that is different from the countervailing sales arrangement. Specification differences include grades or types of crude oil, variability in lease crude oil barrels produced, individual refinery demand for specific grades of crude oil, relative market prices for the different grades of crude oil, customer location, availability of transportation facilities, timing, and costs (including storage) involved in delivering crude oil to the customer. Our policy is only to purchase crude oil for which we have a market and to structure our sales contracts so that crude oil price fluctuations do not materially affect the margin that we receive. We do not acquire and hold any futures contracts or other derivative products for any purpose. We operate our crude oil acquisition and marketing activities differently as market conditions change. During periods when there is a higher demand than supply of crude oil in the near term, the market is in backwardation, meaning that the price of crude oil in a given month exceeds the price of crude oil for delivery in subsequent months. A backwardated market has a positive impact on marketing margins because crude oil marketers can continue to purchase crude oil from producers at a fixed premium to posted prices while selling crude oil at a higher premium to such prices. In backwardated markets, we purchase crude oil and contract for its sale as soon as possible. When the demand for crude oil is weak, the market for crude oil is often in contango, meaning that the price of crude oil in a given month is less than the price of crude oil for delivery in subsequent months. In a contango market, marketing margins are adversely impacted, as crude oil marketers are unable to capture the premium to posted prices described above. However, this unfavorable market condition can be mitigated by storing crude oil because storage owners at major trading locations can simultaneously purchase production at current prices for storage and sell at higher prices for future delivery. As a result, in a contango market we will purchase crude oil and contract for its delivery in future months to capture the price difference. Agreements with Sunoco R&M and Sunoco, Inc. Upon the closing of our initial public offering, we entered into the following agreements: Pipelines and Terminals Storage and Throughput Agreement Under this agreement, Sunoco R&M is paying us fees generally comparable to those charged by third parties to: . transport on our refined product pipelines or throughput in our 32 inland refined product terminals an amount of refined products that will produce at least $75.0 million of revenue in the first year, escalating at 1.67% per year for the next four years. In addition, Sunoco R&M will pay us to transport on our refined product pipelines an amount of refined products that will produce at least $54.3 million of revenue in the sixth year and at least $55.2 million of revenue in the seventh year. Sunoco R&M will pay the published tariffs on the pipelines and contractually agreed upon fees at the terminals; . receive and deliver at least 130,000 bpd of refined products per year at our Marcus Hook Tank Farm for five years. In the first year, we will receive a fee of $0.1627 per barrel for the first 130,000 bpd and $0.0813 per barrel for volumes in excess of 130,000 bpd. These fees will escalate at the rate of 1.67% per year; . store 975,734 barrels of LPG per year at our Inkster Terminal, which represents all of our LPG storage capacity at this facility. In the first year of this seven-year agreement, we will receive a fee of $2.04 per barrel of committed storage, a fee of $0.204 per barrel for receipts greater than 975,734 barrels per year and a fee of $0.204 per barrel for deliveries greater than 975,734 barrels per year. These fees will escalate at the rate of 1.875% per year; 39

. receive and deliver at least 290,000 bpd of crude oil or refined products per year at our Fort Mifflin Terminal Complex for seven years. In the first year, we will receive a fee of $0.1627 per barrel for the first 180,000 bpd and $0.0813 per barrel for volumes in excess of 180,000 bpd. These fees will escalate at the rate of 1.67% per year; and . transport or cause to be transported an aggregate of at least 140,000 bpd of crude oil per year on our Marysville to Toledo, Nederland to Longview, Cushing to Tulsa, Barnsdall to Tulsa, and Bad Creek to Tulsa crude oil pipelines at the published tariffs for a term of seven years. If Sunoco R&M fails to meet its minimum obligations pursuant to the contract terms set forth above, it will be required to pay us in cash the amount of any shortfall, which may be applied as a credit in the following year after Sunoco R&M's minimum obligations are met. Sunoco R&M's obligations under this agreement may be permanently reduced or suspended if Sunoco R&M (1) shuts down or reconfigures one of its refineries (other than planned maintenance turnarounds), or is prohibited from using MTBE in the gasoline it produces, and (2) reasonably believes in good faith that such event will jeopardize its ability to satisfy these obligations. From time to time, Sunoco, Inc. may be presented with opportunities by third parties with respect to its refinery assets. These opportunities may include offers to purchase and joint venture propositions. Sunoco, Inc. is also continually considering changes to its refineries. Those changes may involve new facilities, reduction in certain operations or modifications of facilities or operations. Changes may be considered to meet market demands, to satisfy regulatory requirements or environmental and safety objectives, to improve operational efficiency or for other reasons. Sunoco, Inc. has advised us that although it continually considers the types of matters referred to above, it is not currently proceeding with any transaction or plan that it believes is likely to result in any reconfigurations or other operational changes in any of its refineries served by our assets that would have a material effect on Sunoco R&M's business relationship with us. Further, Sunoco, Inc. has also advised us that it is not considering a shutdown of any of its refineries served by our assets. Sunoco, Inc. is, however, actively managing its assets and operations, and, therefore, changes of some nature, possibly material to its business relationship with us, are likely to occur at some point in the future. To the extent Sunoco R&M does not extend or renew the pipelines and terminals storage and throughput agreement, our financial condition and results of operations may be adversely affected. Our assets were constructed or purchased to service Sunoco R&M's refining and marketing supply chain and are well-situated to suit Sunoco R&M's needs. As a result, we would expect that even if this agreement is not renewed, Sunoco R&M would continue to use our pipelines and terminals. However, we cannot assure you that Sunoco R&M will continue to use our facilities or that we will be able to generate additional revenues from third parties. Please see "Risks Inherent in Our Business." Omnibus Agreement Historically, Sunoco, Inc. has allocated a portion of its general and administrative expenses to its pipeline, terminalling, and storage operations to cover costs of centralized corporate functions such as legal, accounting, treasury, engineering, information technology, and insurance. The allocation was $9.0 million, $10.1 million, and $10.8 million for the years ended December 31, 1999, 2000 and 2001. Under an omnibus agreement with Sunoco, Inc. we are paying Sunoco, Inc. or our general partner an annual administrative fee, initially in the amount of $8.0 million, for the provision by Sunoco, Inc. or its affiliates of various general and administrative services for our benefit for three years following the initial public offering. The $8.0 million fee includes expenses incurred by Sunoco, Inc. and its affiliates to perform 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 does not include salaries of pipeline and terminal personnel or other employees of our general partner, including senior executives, or the cost of their employee benefits, such as 401(k), pension, and health insurance benefits. We have no employees. We will also reimburse Sunoco, Inc. and its affiliates for direct expenses they incur on our behalf. We are currently incurring additional general and administrative costs, including costs for tax return preparation, annual and quarterly reports to unitholders, investor relations, registrar and transfer agent fees, and other costs related to operating as a separate publicly held entity. We estimate that these incremental costs will be approximately $4.0 million per year, including incremental insurance costs. 40

The omnibus agreement also requires Sunoco R&M to: reimburse us for any operating expenses and capital expenditures in excess of $8.0 million per year in each year from 2002 to 2006 that are made to comply with the DOT's pipeline integrity management rule, subject to a maximum aggregate reimbursement of $15.0 million over the five-year period; complete, at its expense, certain tank maintenance and inspection projects currently in progress or expected to be completed at the Darby Creek Tank Farm within one year; and reimburse us for up to $10.0 million of expenditures required at the Marcus Hook Tank Farm and the Darby Creek Tank Farm to maintain compliance with existing industry standards and regulatory requirements. The omnibus agreement also provides that Sunoco, Inc. will indemnify us for certain environmental, toxic tort and other liabilities. For a further description of this indemnification, please see "Environmental Matters." Please see Item 13. "Certain Relationships and Related Transactions", for a more complete description of the Omnibus Agreement. Interrefinery Lease Agreement Under a 20-year lease agreement, Sunoco R&M will pay us $5.1 million in the first year to lease the 58 miles of interrefinery pipelines between Sunoco R&M's Philadelphia and Marcus Hook refineries, escalating at 1.67% per year for the next 19 years. Crude Oil Purchase Agreement Sunoco R&M will purchase from us at market-based rates particular grades of crude oil that our crude oil acquisition and marketing business purchases for delivery to pipelines in: Longview, Trent, Tye, and Colorado City, Texas; Haynesville, Louisiana; Marysville and Lewiston, Michigan; and Tulsa, Oklahoma. At Marysville and Lewiston, Michigan, we exchange Michigan sweet and Michigan sour crude oil we own for domestic sweet crude oil supplied by Sunoco R&M at market-based rates. These agreements, which will have an initial term of two months, will automatically renew on a monthly basis unless terminated by either party on 30 days' written notice. Sunoco R&M has indicated that it has no current intention to terminate these agreements. License Agreement We have granted to Sunoco, Inc. and certain of its affiliates, including our general partner, a license to our intellectual property so that our general partner can manage our operations and create intellectual property using our intellectual property. Our general partner will assign to us the new intellectual property it creates in operating our business. Our general partner has also licensed to us certain of its own intellectual property for use in the conduct of our business and we have licensed to our general partner certain of our intellectual property for use in the conduct of its business. The license agreement has also granted to us a license to use the trademarks, trade names, and service marks of Sunoco, Inc. in the conduct of our business. Treasury Services Agreement We have entered into a treasury services agreement with Sunoco, Inc. pursuant to which, among other things, we are participating in Sunoco, Inc.'s centralized cash management program. Under this program, all of our cash receipts and cash disbursements are processed, together with those of Sunoco, Inc. and its other subsidiaries, through Sunoco, Inc.'s cash accounts with a corresponding credit or charge to an intercompany account. The intercompany balance will be settled periodically, but no less frequently than at the end of each month. Amounts due from Sunoco, Inc. and its subsidiaries earn interest at a rate equal to the average rate of our third-party money market investments, while amounts due to Sunoco, Inc. and its subsidiaries bear interest at a rate equal to the interest rate provided in our revolving credit facility. 41

Year Ended December 31, 2001 versus Year Ended December 31, 2000 Analysis of Combined Statements of Income Sales and other operating revenue for 2001 were $1,613.0 million as compared to $1,808.6 million for 2000, a decrease of $195.6 million. This decrease was primarily due to lower crude oil sales revenue resulting from a decline in crude oil prices. During 2001, the average price of West Texas Intermediate ("WTI") crude oil, at Cushing, Oklahoma, the benchmark crude oil in the United States, dropped to $25.92 per barrel from $30.20 per barrel. Other income was $4.8 million for 2001 versus $5.6 million for 2000. This $0.8 million decrease was primarily due to lower dividend income from an insurance consortium in which Sunoco, Inc. participates and the absence of our allocated portion of a gain recognized in 2000 attributable to the receipt of stock by Sunoco, Inc. in connection with an insurance company demutualization. We allocated these insurance-related gains to each of our business segments. Partially offsetting these lower gains was a $0.5 million increase in Explorer equity income to $4.3 million for 2001 from $3.8 million for 2000. Cash dividends paid to us by Explorer approximate the equity income earned by us from that investment. The increase in Explorer equity income was due to the absence of the adverse impact of a refined product spill that occurred in March 2000. Total cost of products sold and operating expenses decreased $196.3 million to $1,503.2 million for 2001 from $1,699.5 million in 2000. This decrease was primarily due to the decline in crude oil prices described above. Approximately 90% of our sales and other operating revenue and 95% of our cost of products sold and operating expenses are attributable to our crude oil acquisition and marketing activities in our Western Pipeline System. However, the critical profitability factor for these activities is the gross margin, not the absolute level of revenues and expenses. 43

Depreciation and amortization was $25.3 million for 2001 compared to $20.7 million in 2000. This $4.6 million increase was primarily due to recent capital expenditures. A $1.4 million write-off of refined product terminal equipment also contributed to the increase. Selling, general and administrative expenses were $36.0 million in 2001 compared to $34.7 million in 2000. Selling, general and administrative expenses include amounts allocated to us by Sunoco, Inc. to cover the costs of centralized corporate functions incurred on our behalf. These costs totaled $10.8 million and $10.1 million in 2001 and 2000, respectively. Net interest expense was $11.0 million for 2001 versus $10.3 million in 2000. This $0.7 million increase was primarily due to lower capitalized interest. Income tax expense decreased as a result of the decrease in pretax earnings. The effective tax rate decreased to 37% in 2001 from 38% in 2000. Analysis of Segment Operating Income Eastern Pipeline System. Operating income in our Eastern Pipeline System was $29.9 million in 2001 compared to $31.1 million in 2000. This $1.2 million decrease was due to a $3.7 million increase in total costs and expenses, partially offset by a $2.4 million increase in sales and other operating revenue and a $0.1 million increase in other income. Total pipeline throughput for 2001 increased 9,364 bpd, or 2% compared to 2000, while shipments in barrel miles increased 1%. The average tariff per barrel mile increased to 0.450(cent) per barrel for 2001 from 0.440(cent) per barrel for 2000. The $3.7 million increase in total costs and expenses was due to increases in operating expenses of $1.6 million primarily due to additional environmental remediation costs associated with a prior-period pipeline leak, increases in depreciation and amortization of $1.5 million due to recent capital expenditures, increases in selling, general and administrative expenses of $0.6 million. The $2.4 million increase in sales and other operating revenue was primarily due to increased tariff revenue on our Marysville to Toledo crude oil pipeline and our Twin Oaks to Montello, Twin Oaks to Newark, and Toledo to Blawnox refined product pipelines. The higher revenue from the Marysville to Toledo pipeline was due to a 6,762 bpd increase in volumes resulting from higher Canadian crude oil purchases by Sunoco R&M and third parties, a larger percentage of higher-tariff crude oil shipments, and a tariff increase in mid-2001. The increase in revenue on the Twin Oaks to Montello and Twin Oaks to Newark pipelines was attributable to a 4,732 bpd increase in shipments from Sunoco R&M's Marcus Hook refinery, which had a major catcracker turnaround in 2000. The increase in revenue on the Toledo to Blawnox pipeline was due to higher average tariff rates. The $0.1 million increase in other income was primarily due to the $0.5 million increase in equity income from Explorer discussed above, partially offset by lower allocated insurance-related gains. Terminal Facilities. Operating income in our Terminal Facilities was $16.1 million in 2001 compared to $17.2 million in 2000. This $1.1 million decrease was primarily due to a 25% decrease in terminal throughput at our Nederland Terminal largely resulting from the absence of Department of Energy sales of crude oil from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve, which occurred primarily during the fourth quarter of 2000. The decline in Nederland Terminal throughput was also due to a reduction in low-tariff throughput at this facility attributable to reduced volumes from one customer of approximately 75,000 bpd. Partially offsetting these factors were storage revenue attributable to a new 660,000 barrel tank placed into service at our Nederland Terminal in September 2000 and lower operating expenses, including costs associated with terminal repair and upgrade projects in 2000 at the Fort Mifflin Terminal. Historically, most of the terminalling and throughput services we have provided for Sunoco R&M were at fees that enabled us to recover our costs, but not to generate operating income. Accordingly, a $0.9 million decrease in these costs and expenses during 2001 resulted in a corresponding decrease in revenues. The primary cause for these declines was the absence of $6.0 million in charges recognized in 2000 in connection with remediation activities related to a February 2000 crude oil spill at one of our crude oil transfer lines to the Darby Creek Tank Farm. Partially offsetting this factor were higher depreciation and amortization, other environmental remediation expenses, and other general cost increases. The increase in depreciation and amortization was largely due to a $1.4 million write-off of refined product terminal equipment. Recent capital expenditures also contributed to the increase. 44

Throughput volumes at our inland refined product terminals increased 2% in 2001 primarily due to stronger heating oil and other distillate fuel demand resulting from colder weather. For our refinery-related assets, the average throughput in 2001 increased by 1% at the Fort Mifflin Terminal Complex and 3% at the Marcus Hook Tank Farm. Western Pipeline System. Operating income in our Western Pipeline System was $7.4 million in 2001 compared to $11.1 million in 2000. This $3.7 million decrease was primarily due to a $2.1 million decrease in gross margin, a $1.2 million increase in selling, general and administrative expenses and a $0.4 million decrease in other income. Crude oil pipeline throughput volumes decreased 3% as a decline in high-tariff throughput was essentially offset by an increase in low-tariff volumes. Gross margin per barrel of pipeline throughput decreased by 1.3(cent) in 2001 versus 2000. The $2.1 million decrease in gross margin was due to a decrease in margins from crude oil pipeline operations. Crude oil acquisition and marketing margins were essentially unchanged versus 2000. The decline in crude oil pipeline margins was mainly due to lower revenues in our Texas Gulf Coast and East Texas Pipeline system and higher depreciation and amortization expense. The lower revenues were primarily the result of reduced shipments of crude oil through our Nederland to Longview pipeline, which delivers crude oil to the Mid-Valley and BP pipelines at Longview, Texas. Revenues also declined due to lower gathering volumes. The increase in depreciation and amortization expense was primarily due to recent capital expenditures. Also contributing to the decline in crude oil pipeline margins was an increase in pipeline operating expenses due in part to higher electricity prices. The $1.2 million increase in selling, general and administrative expenses was primarily due to higher allocated costs from Sunoco, Inc. and other general cost increases. The $0.4 million decrease in other income was due to the lower allocated insurance-related gains. Year Ended December 31, 2000 versus Year Ended December 31, 1999 Analysis of Combined Statements of Income Sales and other operating revenues for 2000 were $1,808.6 million compared to $974.2 million for 1999, an increase of $834.4 million. This increase was primarily due to higher crude oil prices and volumes. The average price of WTI at Cushing increased to $30.20 per barrel in 2000 from $19.24 per barrel in 1999. Sales volumes increased 12.7 million barrels, or 32%, during 2000 in large part due to the full-year impact of the acquisition of the crude oil transportation and marketing assets of Pride Companies, L.P., or the West Texas assets, in October 1999. Other income was $5.6 million in 2000 versus $6.1 million in 1999. This $0.5 million decrease was due to an $0.8 million decline in Explorer equity income to $3.8 million in 2000 from $4.6 million in 1999, due to costs associated with a refined products spill that occurred in March 2000, partially offset by a $0.4 million allocated gain on the receipt of stock by Sunoco, Inc. in connection with an insurance company demutualization. Total cost of products sold and operating expenses increased $832.9 million to $1,699.5 million in 2000 from $866.6 million in 1999. This increase was primarily due to higher crude oil acquisition prices and purchase volumes. Depreciation and amortization was $20.7 million in 2000 versus $19.9 million in 1999. This $0.8 million increase was primarily due to recent capital expenditures and the acquisition of the West Texas assets in October 1999. Selling, general and administrative expenses were $34.7 million in 2000 versus $27.5 million in 1999. This $7.2 million increase was largely due to higher allocated costs attributable to Sunoco, Inc.'s employee incentive compensation and benefit plans. Historically, allocated incentive compensation costs were determined based upon Sunoco, Inc.'s overall financial performance. Future incentive compensation will depend upon our performance. 45

Higher salaries and wages also contributed to the increase. Selling, general and administrative expenses include amounts allocated to us by Sunoco, Inc., which were $10.1 million and $9.0 million in 2000 and 1999, respectively. Net interest expense was $10.3 million in 2000 versus $6.5 million in 1999. This $3.8 million increase was primarily due to higher average outstanding borrowings from an affiliate, partially offset by higher capitalized interest. Income tax expense decreased as a result of the decline in pretax earnings. The effective tax rate in both 2000 and 1999 was 38%. Analysis of Segment Operating Income Eastern Pipeline System. Operating income in our Eastern Pipeline System was $31.1 million in 2000 compared to $38.5 million in 1999. This $7.4 million decrease was due to a $1.3 million decrease in sales and other operating revenue, a $5.2 million increase in total costs and expenses, and a $0.9 million decrease in other income. Refined product pipeline throughput in 2000 decreased 17,333 bpd, or 4%, compared to 1999, and shipments in barrel miles decreased 2% in the current period. The average tariff per barrel mile increased to 0.440(cent) per barrel in 2000 from 0.438(cent) per barrel in 1999. The $1.3 million decrease in sales and other operating revenue was due in part to lower tariff revenue from most of our refined product pipelines resulting from decreased production at Sunoco R&M's refineries related to scheduled refinery turnarounds. Also contributing to the lower sales and other operating revenue were decreased sales of heating oil and other distillate fuels by Sunoco R&M at our terminals due to unseasonably warm weather and reduced shipments on our Twin Oaks to Newark pipeline due to higher prices of refined products, particularly gasoline, in the Philadelphia area than in the New York Harbor market. Partially offsetting these negative factors were increased tariff revenues resulting from increased throughput on our Philadelphia to Linden pipeline due to the expansion of the Linden junction and a new connection to a third-party terminal in Syracuse, New York, which allowed Sunoco R&M to shift volumes from competitors' pipelines to our Montello to Syracuse pipeline. Revenues also increased on our Marysville to Toledo crude oil pipeline due to increased processing of Canadian crude oil at Sunoco R&M's Toledo refinery. The $5.2 million increase in total costs and expenses was due to a $2.5 million increase in operating expenses, a $2.3 million increase in selling, general and administrative expenses, and a $0.4 million increase in depreciation and amortization. The increase in operating expenses was primarily due to the adverse impact of changes in volumetric gains and losses on our pipelines and higher environmental remediation costs largely due to a pipeline leak that occurred in January 2000. The increase in selling, general and administrative expenses was primarily due to higher employee incentive compensation payments and benefit costs and administrative costs allocated to us from Sunoco, Inc. The $0.9 million decrease in other income was primarily due to the $0.8 million decline in equity income from Explorer discussed above. Terminal Facilities. Operating income in our Terminal Facilities was $17.2 million in 2000 compared to $16.8 million in 1999. This $0.4 million increase was primarily due to higher revenues at our Nederland Terminal primarily as a result of a 4% increase in terminal throughput. The higher throughput was largely due to U.S. Department of Energy sales of crude oil from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve primarily during the fourth quarter of 2000, which was partially offset by decreased throughput of lubricant products by Sunoco R&M. Also partially offsetting the higher revenues was an increase in operating and administrative expenses largely as a result of higher employee incentive compensation payments and benefit costs and higher utility costs attributable to increases in electricity and fuel prices. Total costs and corresponding revenues attributable to our inland refined product terminals and refinery-related assets increased $7.0 million as a result of the $6.0 million of charges recognized in 2000 in connection with the remediation activities related to the spill in February 2000 at one of our crude oil transfer lines to the Darby Creek Tank Farm. Higher employee incentive compensation and benefit costs also contributed to the increase. Throughput volumes at our inland refined product terminals increased 6% in 2000 primarily due to higher Sunoco R&M retail gasoline sales volumes, particularly in the Midwest. The average throughput of our refinery-related assets was essentially unchanged in 2000 as increased crude oil throughput at Sunoco R&M's Philadelphia refinery offset declines related to scheduled turnaround activity at Sunoco R&M's Marcus Hook refinery. 46

Western Pipeline System. Operating income in our Western Pipeline System was $11.1 million for both 2000 and 1999. A $3.0 million increase in gross margin was offset by higher selling, general and administrative expenses. Revenues and expenses in the Western Pipeline System increased significantly during 2000 in large part due to the acquisition of the West Texas assets in October 1999, which contributed $4.1 million and $1.3 million to operating income (including gross margin of $4.5 million and $1.4 million) in 2000 and 1999, respectively. Excluding the West Texas assets, gross margin decreased $0.1 million in 2000 primarily due to a decrease in margins from crude oil acquisition and marketing activities, essentially offset by an increase in margins from crude oil pipeline operations. Crude oil acquisition and marketing margins declined primarily due to increased competitive pressure in 2000 for purchasing crude oil as demand from Midwest refineries increased and domestic production declined. We were unable to pass all of the increase in crude oil acquisition costs on to Sunoco R&M under the terms of a supply agreement. Also contributing to the margin decline was the adverse impact of volumetric gains and losses in our crude oil trucking operations. Partially offsetting these negative factors was the absence of unfavorable litigation settlements recognized in 1999. The higher crude oil pipeline margin reflects higher gross margin from the 10-inch East Texas pipeline reactivated in July 1999 to transport foreign crude oil for Sunoco R&M's Toledo refinery and additional deliveries on the pipeline to Sunoco R&M's and Sinclair Oil's Tulsa refineries. Partially offsetting these positive factors were increases in salaries and wages, utility costs, and rental expense. The $3.2 million increase in selling, general and administrative expenses was primarily due to the higher employee incentive compensation and benefit costs and higher administrative costs allocated to us by Sunoco, Inc. Liquidity and Capital Resources Cash Flows and Capital Expenditures Net cash provided by operating activities in 2001 was $27.2 million compared to $79.1 million in 2000 and $125.2 million in 1999. The $51.9 million decrease in net cash provided by operating activities in 2001 was primarily due to a $57.8 million increase in working capital uses pertaining to operating activities, partially offset by an increase in depreciation and amortization of $4.7 million, and deferred income taxes of $3.5 million. The $57.8 million increase in working capital uses pertaining to operating activities was due to a $33.5 million increase in working capital in 2001 compared to a $24.3 million decrease in working capital in 2000. The increase in working capital in 2001 was primarily a result of the impact of a decline in crude oil prices on receivables and payables from the purchase and sale of crude oil in the Western Pipeline System. During 2000, crude oil prices increased, which caused working capital to decline. The inverse relationship between crude oil prices and the level of working capital exists because we have more crude oil payables than receivables and because we use the last-in, first-out method of accounting for crude oil inventories in our crude oil acquisition and marketing activities. Crude oil payables exceed crude oil receivables largely due to the absence of a crude oil receivable from Sunoco R&M. Historically, receivables from Sunoco R&M have been settled immediately through the net parent investment account. The following example illustrates this inverse relationship. As crude oil prices increase, the carrying amount of inventory does not change under the last-in, first-out method of accounting, while both crude oil receivables and payables increase. Because crude oil payables exceed crude oil receivables, the impact of the price increase on payables is greater, resulting in a reduction in working capital. Upon completion of the initial public offering in February 2002, payment terms in our crude oil supply contracts with Sunoco R&M now result in crude oil receivables, lowering the net crude oil payable and reducing the impact of changes in crude oil prices on net cash provided by operating activities. 47

The $46.1 million decrease in net cash provided by operating activities in 2000 was largely due to a $35.5 million decrease in working capital sources pertaining to operating activities and a $6.9 million decrease in net income. The decrease in working capital sources during 2000 was primarily due to the impact of crude oil price changes on receivables and payables from the purchase and sale of crude oil in the Western Pipeline System. Net cash used in investing activities for the years ended December 31, 2001, 2000,and 1999 was $73.1 million, $77.3 million, and $75.1 million, respectively. Capital expenditures were $72.7 million in 2001, $57.9 million in 2000, and $47.0 million in 1999. The other significant investing transactions in the three-year period were the acquisition of the West Texas assets in 1999 for $29.6 million and a loan to The Claymont Investment Company, a wholly owned subsidiary of Sunoco, Inc., of $20.0 million in 2000. Net cash provided by (used in) financing activities for the years ended December 31, 2001, 2000 and 1999 was $45.8 million, $(1.8) million, and $(50.0) million, respectively. Contributions from (distributions to) Sunoco, Inc. and its affiliates were $91.1 million, $(96.6) million, and $(49.8) million in 2001, 2000 and 1999, respectively. Net proceeds from (repayments of) borrowings from The Claymont Investment Company were $(45.0) million in 2001 and $95.0 million in 2000. The Claymont Investment Company serves as a lender and borrower of funds to and from Sunoco, Inc. and its subsidiaries, including the predecessor to Sunoco Logistics Partners L.P., to enable those entities to achieve their desired capital structures. Amounts owed to and due from The Claymont Investment Company under these financing arrangements included in the Predecessor's combined balance sheets were not assumed by or contributed to Sunoco Logistics Partners L.P. Furthermore, subsequent to the offering, we will not engage in these types of financing arrangements with The Claymont Investment Company or any other subsidiary of Sunoco, Inc. Capital Requirements The pipeline, terminalling, and crude oil storage operations are capital intensive, requiring significant investment to upgrade or enhance existing operations and to meet environmental and operational regulations. Our 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 complementary assets to grow our business and to expand existing facilities, such as projects that increase storage or throughput volumes. The following table summarizes maintenance and expansion capital expenditures for the years presented: Year Ended December 31, ------------------------------ 1999 2000 2001 ------- ------- ------- (in thousands) Maintenance ............................. $32,312 $39,067 $53,628 Expansion ............................... 49,556/1/ 18,854 19,055 ------- ------- ------- Total ................................... $81,868/1/ $57,921 $72,683 ======= ======= ======= ---------- /1/ Includes purchase of the West Texas assets for $29.6 million in cash and the assumption of $5.3 million of long-term debt. We estimate that our annual maintenance capital expenditures will be $27.0 million in 2002. These projected maintenance capital outlays are approximately $14.7 million lower than the average annual outlays for 1999-2001. This prior period included several one-time projects to upgrade our technology, increase reliability, and lower our cost structure. We do not believe we will incur these types of expenditures in 2002. In the area of technology, we completed numerous automation projects, upgraded our metering systems, enhanced various software packages, and replaced pipeline control systems. In addition, we completed numerous asset upgrade projects, including relocating pipelines at the Philadelphia International Airport due to runway and terminal 48

reconfigurations, rebuilds on three pump stations, replacement and upgrade of vapor recovery units at our product terminals and repair and upgrades on the crude oil transfer lines between Hog Island Wharf and the Darby Creek Tank Farm. The crude oil transfer lines, which were historically a part of Sunoco R&M's refining business, did not meet pipeline standards and could not be internally inspected or maintained by conventional leak detection devices prior to completion of this project. In the area of transportation and safety, the DOT has recently adopted a pipeline integrity management rule. Based on historical integrity tests conducted since 1989, we have estimated that compliance with this rule will cost us approximately $8.0 million per year for five years, or a total of $40.0 million, for all pipelines in our Eastern and Western Pipeline Systems that are subject to this rule. Under the terms of the omnibus agreement, Sunoco R&M will reimburse us for operating expenses and capital expenditures in excess of $8.0 million per year (up to an aggregate maximum of $15.0 million over a five-year period) incurred to comply with the DOT's pipeline integrity management rule. In addition, Sunoco R&M is, at its expense, completing for the Darby Creek Tank Farm certain tank maintenance and inspection projects now in progress or expected to be completed within one year from the closing of the initial public offering. Sunoco R&M estimates total costs to complete these projects will be approximately $4.0 million. Sunoco R&M will also reimburse us up to $10.0 million in connection with expenditures required at the Darby Creek and Marcus Hook Tank Farms to maintain compliance with existing industry standards and regulatory requirements. We are reflecting outlays for these programs as operating expenses or capital expenditures, as appropriate. Capital expenditures are being depreciated over their useful lives. Reimbursements by Sunoco R&M are being reflected as capital contributions. Our typical growth projects consist of new tankage, increased throughput on our existing pipelines, and new connections for deliveries to customers. We anticipate pursuing similar growth projects and acquisitions. We expect to fund our capital expenditures, including any acquisitions, from cash provided by operations and, to the extent necessary, from the proceeds of: . borrowing under the revolving credit facility discussed below and other borrowings; and . issuance of additional common units. Initial Public Offering On February 8, 2002, we issued 5.75 million common units (including 750,000 units issued pursuant to the underwriters' over-allotment option), representing a 24.8% limited partnership interest, in an initial public offering at a price of $20.25 per unit. Proceeds from this offering, which totaled approximately $102 million net of underwriting discounts and offering expenses, were used by us to establish working capital that was not contributed to us by Sunoco, Inc. Credit Facility In conjunction with our initial public offering, our operating partnership has entered into a three-year $150.0 million revolving credit facility, which is available to fund our working capital requirements, to finance future acquisitions, and for general partnership purposes. This credit facility includes a $20.0 million distribution sublimit that is available for distributions. We may use the credit facility to fund the minimum quarterly distributions provided the total outstanding borrowings for distributions do not at any time exceed $20.0 million. We will be required to reduce to zero all borrowings under the distribution sublimit under the revolving credit facility each year for 15 days. Currently, we have no borrowings under this credit facility. Our obligations under the credit facility are unsecured. Indebtedness under the credit facility will rank equally with all the outstanding unsecured and unsubordinated debt of our operating partnership. We may prepay all loans at any time without penalty subject to reimbursement of breakage and redeployment costs in the case of prepayment of LIBOR borrowings. 49

Indebtedness under the credit facility will bear interest, at our option, at either (i) LIBOR plus an applicable margin or (ii) the higher of the federal funds rate plus 0.50% or the Bank of America prime rate (each plus the applicable margin). We will incur fees in connection with the revolving credit facility. The revolving credit facility will mature in January 2005. At that time, the facility will terminate and all outstanding amounts will be due and payable. The credit agreement prohibits us from declaring distributions to unitholders if any event of default, as defined in the credit agreement, occurs or would result from the declaration of distributions. In addition, the credit facility contains various covenants limiting our operating partnership's ability to: . incur indebtedness; . grant certain liens; . make certain loans, acquisitions, and investments; . make any material change to the nature of our business; . acquire another company; or . enter into a merger or sale of assets, including the sale or transfer of interests in our subsidiaries. The credit facility also contains covenants requiring us to maintain on a rolling-four-quarter basis: . a ratio of up to 4:1 of consolidated total debt to consolidated EBITDA (each as defined in the credit agreement); and . an interest coverage ratio (as defined in the credit agreement) of 3.5:1. Each of the following will be an event of default under the revolving credit facility: . failure to pay any principal, interest, fees, or other amounts when due; . failure of any representation or warranty to be true and correct; . termination of any material agreement, including the pipelines and terminals storage and throughput agreement and the omnibus agreement; . default under any material agreement if such default could have a material adverse effect on us; . bankruptcy or insolvency events involving us, our general partner, or our subsidiaries; . the entry of monetary judgments, not covered or funded by insurance, against us, our general partner, or any of our or its subsidiaries in excess of $20.0 million in the aggregate or any non-monetary judgment having a material adverse effect; . the sale by Sunoco, Inc. of a material portion of its refinery assets or other assets related to its agreements with us unless the purchaser of those assets has a minimum credit rating and fully assumes the rights and obligations of Sunoco, Inc. under those agreements; and . failure by Sunoco, Inc. to own, directly or indirectly, 51% of the general partnership interest in us or to control our management and that of our operating partnership. Senior Notes Also in connection with our initial public offering, our operating partnership has issued $250 million of senior notes, the net proceeds of which have been distributed to Sunoco, Inc. as additional consideration for its contribution of assets to us. The senior notes were issued pursuant to an indenture, and our obligations under the senior notes are unsecured. Indebtedness under the senior notes rank equally with the credit facility and all the outstanding unsecured 50

and unsubordinated debt of our operating partnership. The senior notes and revolving credit facility have been guaranteed by us and our operating partnership's subsidiaries. The senior notes will mature on February 15, 2012 and bear interest at a rate of 7.25% per annum, payable semi-annually on February 15 and August 15, commencing August 15, 2002. The senior notes are redeemable, at our option, at a make-whole premium calculated on the basis of a discount rate equal to the yield on United States treasury notes having a constant maturity comparable to the remaining term of the senior notes, plus 25 basis points. The senior notes are not subject to any sinking fund provisions. In addition, the senior notes contain various covenants limiting our operating partnership's ability to: . incur certain liens; . engage in sale/leaseback transactions; or . merge, consolidate, or sell substantially all of our assets. Each of the following is an event of default under the indenture governing the senior notes: . failure to pay interest on any note for 30 days; . failure to pay the principal of or any premium on any note when due; . failure to perform any other covenant in the indenture that continues for 60 days after being given written notice; . the acceleration of the maturity of any other debt of us or any of our subsidiaries or a default in the payment of any principal or interest in respect of any other indebtedness of us or any of our subsidiaries having an outstanding principal amount of $10.0 million or more individually or in the aggregate and such default shall be continuing for a period of 30 days; or . the bankruptcy, insolvency, or reorganization of our operating partnership. Upon the occurrence of a change of control to a non-investment grade entity, our operating partnership must offer to purchase the senior notes at a price equal to 100% of their principal amount plus accrued and unpaid interest, if any, to the date of purchase. The initial offering of the senior notes was not registered under the Securities Act. However, the holders of the senior notes have certain registration rights. Environmental Matters Operation of our pipelines, terminals, and associated facilities are subject to stringent and complex federal, state, and local laws and regulations governing the discharge of materials into the environment or otherwise relating to protection of the environment. As a result of our compliance with these laws and regulations, we have accrued liabilities for estimated site restoration costs to be incurred in the future at our facilities and properties, including liabilities for environmental remediation obligations. Under our accounting policies, we record liabilities when site restoration and environmental remediation and cleanup obligations are either known or considered probable and can be reasonably estimated. For a discussion of the accrued liabilities and charges against income related to these activities, see Note 7 to the combined financial statements included in Item 8. "Financial Statements and Supplementary Data." Under the terms of our omnibus agreement with Sunoco, Inc., and in connection with the contribution of our assets by affiliates of Sunoco, Inc., Sunoco, Inc. has agreed to indemnify us for 30 years from environmental and toxic tort liabilities related to the assets contributed to us that arise from the operation of such assets prior to closing. Sunoco, Inc. is obligated to indemnify us for 100% of all losses asserted within the first 21 years of closing. Sunoco, Inc.'s share of liability for claims asserted thereafter will decrease by 10% a year. For example, for a claim asserted during the twenty-third year after closing, Sunoco, Inc. would be required to indemnify us for 80% of our loss. There is no monetary cap on the amount of indemnity coverage provided by Sunoco, Inc. Any environmental and toxic tort liabilities not covered by this indemnity will be our responsibility. Total future costs for 51

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 our liability at multi-party sites, if any, in light of the number, participation levels, and financial viability of other parties. We have agreed to indemnify Sunoco, Inc. and its affiliates for events and conditions associated with the operation of our assets that occur on or after the closing of the initial public offering and for environmental and toxic tort liabilities to the extent Sunoco, Inc. is not required to indemnify us. The use of MTBE continues to be the focus of federal and state government attention due to public health and environmental issues that have been raised by the use of MTBE in gasoline, and specifically the discovery of MTBE in water supplies. MTBE is the primary oxygenate used by Sunoco R&M and other petroleum refiners to meet reformulated gasoline requirements under the Clean Air Act. Many states, including New York and Connecticut, have banned or restricted the use of MTBE in gasoline commencing as early as 2003 in response to concerns about MTBE's adverse impact on ground or surface water. Other states are considering bans or restrictions on MTBE or opting out of the EPA's reformulated gasoline program, either of which events would reduce the use of MTBE. Any ban or restriction on the use of MTBE may lead to the greater use of ethanol. Unlike MTBE, which can be blended in gasoline at the refinery, ethanol is blended at the terminal and is not transported by our pipelines. While many of our inland-refined product terminals currently blend ethanol, any revenues we would receive for blending ethanol might not offset the loss of revenues we would suffer from the reduced volumes we transport on our Eastern refined product pipelines. Another significant environmental uncertainty relates to Sunoco R&M's potential capital expenditures to comply with new fuel specifications required under the Clean Air Act, and to respond to the EPA's enforcement initiative under the authority of the Clean Air Act's New Source Review and Prevention of Significant Deterioration, or NSR/PSD, program, including the notices of violation recently received by Sunoco R&M. It is uncertain what Sunoco, Inc. or Sunoco R&M's responses to these emerging issues will be. We cannot assure you that those responses will not reduce Sunoco R&M's obligations under the pipelines and terminals storage and throughput agreement, thereby reducing the throughput in our pipelines, our cash flow, and our ability to make distributions to you. For more information concerning environmental matters, please see Item 1. "Business- Environmental Regulation." Impact of Inflation Although the impact of inflation has slowed in recent years, it is still a factor in the United States economy and may increase the cost to acquire or replace property, plant, and equipment and may increase the costs of labor and supplies. To the extent permitted by competition, regulation, and existing agreements, we have and will continue to pass along increased costs to our customers in the form of higher fees. Critical Accounting Policies Disclosures of our significant accounting policies is included in Note 1 to the combined financial statements. Certain of these policies are particularly sensitive and require significant judgments, estimates and assumptions to be made by us. A discussion of these policies is set forth below. Properties, Plants and Equipment and Impairment of Long-Lived Assets. We calculate depreciation and amortization of our properties, plants and equipment based on estimated useful lives and salvage values of the assets. Factors impacting these estimates include normal wear and tear, maintenance levels and economic conditions impacting the demand for these assets. In addition, long-lived assets are subject to testing for impairment whenever circumstances indicate that their carrying amount may not be recoverable. For example, a significant decrease in an asset's market value, a major adverse change in the business climate in which it operates or a history of operating or cash flow losses may be an indication of impairment. Impairment testing involves estimating future net cash flows relating to the asset, including assumptions about future market conditions, operating and capital expenditures and other factors. 52

Environmental Remediation. We accrue environmental remediation costs for work at identified sites where an assessment has indicated that cleanup costs are probable and reasonably estimable. Such accruals are undiscounted and are based on currently available information, estimated timing of remedial actions and related inflation assumptions, existing technology and presently enacted laws and regulations. Accruals may require adjustment as new sites are identified or additional information about current sites becomes available. Technology changes, new environmental laws and regulations and other factors may also impact future environmental expenditures. For a further discussion of our environmental remediation activities, please see "Environmental Matters." New Accounting Pronouncements In June 1998, Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 133, "Accounting for Derivative Instruments and Hedging Activities," was issued and, in June 2000, it was amended by Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 138, "Accounting for Certain Derivative Instruments and Certain Hedging Activities" (collectively, "new derivative accounting"). The new derivative accounting requires recognition of all derivative contracts in the balance sheet at their fair value. If the derivative contracts qualify for hedge accounting, depending on their nature, changes in their fair values are either offset in net income against the changes in the fair values of the items being hedged or reflected initially as a separate component of the net parent investment and subsequently recognized in net income when the hedged items are recognized in net income. The ineffective portions of changes in the fair values of derivative contracts that qualify for hedge accounting as well as changes in fair value of all other derivatives are immediately recognized in net income. The new derivative accounting was adopted effective January 1, 2001. There was no impact on net income during 2001. In July 2001, Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 142, "Goodwill and Other Intangible Assets" ("SFAS No. 142"), was issued. Sunoco Logistics Partners L.P. will adopt SFAS No. 142 effective January 1, 2002 when adoption is mandatory. SFAS No. 142 will require the testing of goodwill and indefinite-lived intangible assets for impairment rather than amortizing them. We are currently assessing the impact of adopting SFAS No. 142 on our combined financial statements. The current level of annual amortization of goodwill and indefinite-lived intangible assets, which will be eliminated upon the adoption of SFAS No. 142, is approximately $0.8 million. In August 2001, Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 143, "Accounting for Asset Retirement Obligations" ("SFAS No. 143"), was issued. This statement significantly changes the method of accruing for costs associated with the retirement of fixed assets that an entity is legally obligated to incur. We will evaluate the impact and timing of implementing SFAS No. 143. Implementation of this standard is required no later than January 1, 2003. In August 2001, Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 144, "Accounting for the Impairment or Disposal of Long-Lived Assets" ("SFAS No. 144"), was issued. Sunoco Logistics Partners L.P. will adopt SFAS No. 144 effective January 1, 2002 when adoption is mandatory. Among other things, SFAS No. 144 significantly changes the criteria that would have to be met to classify an asset as held-for-sale. SFAS No. 144 supersedes Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 121, "Accounting for the Impairment of Long-Lived Assets and for Long-Lived Assets to Be Disposed Of," and the provisions of Accounting Principles Board Opinion 30, "Reporting the Results of Operations--Reporting the Effects of Disposal of a Segment of a Business, and Extraordinary, Unusual and Infrequently Occurring Events and Transactions," that relate to reporting the effects of a disposal of a segment of a business. We are currently assessing the impact of adopting SFAS No. 144 on our combined financial statements. 53

Risks Inherent in Our Business We may not have sufficient cash from operations to enable us to pay the minimum quarterly distribution following establishment of cash reserves and payment of fees and expenses, including payments to our general partner. The amount of cash we can distribute on our common units principally depends upon the amount of cash we generate from our operations, which will fluctuate from quarter to quarter based on the volume of refined products and crude oil transported in our pipelines or handled at our terminals; the tariff rates and terminalling fees we charge; our crude oil acquisition and marketing margins; the level of our operating costs, including payments to our general partner; and prevailing economic conditions. In addition, the actual amount of cash we will have available for distribution will depend on the level of capital expenditures we make; our debt service requirements; fluctuations in our working capital needs; our ability to make working capital borrowings under our revolving credit facility; and the amount, if any, of cash reserves established by our general partner in its discretion. You should also be aware that the amount of cash we have available for distribution depends primarily on our cash flow, including cash flow from financial reserves and working capital borrowings, and not solely on profitability, which will be affected by non-cash items. As a result, we may make cash distributions during periods when we record losses and may not make cash distributions during periods when we record net income. Cost reimbursements, which will be determined in our general partner's sole discretion, and fees due our general partner and its affiliates will be substantial and will reduce our cash available for distribution to you. Payments to our general partner will be substantial and will reduce the amount of available cash for distribution to unitholders. For the three years from our initial public offering, we will pay Sunoco, Inc. or our general partner an administrative fee of $8.0 million per year for the provision by Sunoco, Inc. or its affiliates of various general and administrative services for our benefit. The administrative fee may increase in the second and third years by up to a maximum of 2.5% per year and may also increase if we make an acquisition that requires an increase in the level of general and administrative services that we receive from Sunoco, Inc. or its affiliates.In addition, the general partner will be entitled to reimbursement for all other expenses it incurs on our behalf, including the salaries of and the cost of employee benefits for employees of our general partner, including senior executives, who provide services to us. Our general partner has sole discretion in determining the amount of these expenses. We depend upon Sunoco R&M for a substantial portion of the crude oil and refined products transported on our pipelines and handled at our terminals, and any reduction in these quantities could reduce our ability to make distributions to unitholders. For the year ended December 30, 2001, Sunoco R&M accounted for approximately 73% of our Eastern Pipeline System revenues, 59% of our Terminal Facilities revenues, and 66% of our Western Pipeline System revenues. We received the balance of our revenues from third parties. We will continue to remain dependent on third parties for additional revenues. Our pipelines and terminals storage and throughput agreement does not cover our crude oil acquisition and marketing business or our Nederland Terminal. In addition, although the contract makes provision for escalation of the fees charged to Sunoco R&M, the increased fees may be inadequate to cover increased costs in the future. With the exception of our Nederland Terminal, Sunoco R&M accounts for substantially all of the throughput volumes at our Terminal Facilities. In addition, Sunoco R&M and its affiliates are the only shippers on approximately 850 miles of our Eastern Pipeline System, and Sunoco R&M is the only shipper on approximately 45 miles of our Western Pipeline System. We expect to continue to derive a substantial portion of our revenues from Sunoco R&M for the foreseeable future. If Sunoco R&M were to decrease the throughput transported on our pipelines for any reason, our revenues would decline and our ability to make distributions to unitholders would be adversely affected. 54

Sunoco R&M's obligations under the pipelines and terminals storage and throughput agreement may be reduced or suspended in some circumstances, which would reduce our ability to make distributions to our unitholders. Sunoco R&M's obligations under the pipelines and terminals storage and throughput agreement may be permanently reduced in some circumstances, which would reduce our ability to make distributions to our unitholders. These events, some of which are within the exclusive control of Sunoco R&M, include: . Governmental action that prohibits Sunoco R&M from using MTBE in the gasoline it produces if Sunoco R&M reasonably believes in good faith that this action will jeopardize its ability to satisfy its minimum revenue or throughput obligations. . The inability of Sunoco R&M and us to agree on the amount of any surcharge required to be paid by Sunoco R&M to cover substantial and unanticipated costs that we may incur in complying with new laws or governmental regulations applicable to our Terminal Facilities. . A decision by Sunoco R&M to shut down or reconfigure one or more of its refineries if Sunoco R&M reasonably believes in good faith that such event will jeopardize its ability to satisfy its minimum revenue or throughput obligations. Factors that might lead Sunoco R&M to shut down or reconfigure a refinery include: . reduced demand for refined products produced at the refinery; . increasingly stringent environmental regulations. For example, Sunoco R&M has estimated that it will be required to make capital expenditures of approximately $300 million to $400 million over the next five years at its refineries to bring them into compliance with the Environmental Protection Agency's new rules limiting the sulfur in motor gasoline and diesel fuel; . a catastrophic event at a refinery, such as a major fire, flood, or explosion; and . environmental proceedings or other litigation that could limit all or a portion of the operations at a refinery. As part of a Clean Air Act enforcement initiative, the EPA has requested information relating to potential violations of the Clean Air Act from Sunoco R&M and other refiners. The EPA has entered into consent agreements with several refiners that require them to make significant capital expenditures to install control equipment to reduce emissions of sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxides, and particulate matter. Pursuant to this enforcement initiative, Sunoco R&M recently has received notices of violation from the EPA relating to its Marcus Hook, Philadelphia, and Toledo refineries. Sunoco R&M is currently evaluating the notices of violation for all three refineries to determine how it will respond. In resolving these notices of violation, Sunoco R&M could be required to make significant capital expenditures, operate these refineries at reduced levels, and pay significant penalties. See Item 1. "Business--Environmental Regulation." Depending on the ultimate cost of complying with existing and future environmental regulations or proceedings, Sunoco R&M may determine that it is more economical to reduce production at a refinery or shut down all or a portion of a refinery rather than make these capital expenditures. Sunoco R&M's obligations under the pipelines and terminals storage and throughput agreement would be reduced in this event and our ability to make distributions to our unitholders would also be reduced. Furthermore, Sunoco R&M's obligations would be temporarily suspended during the occurrence of an event that is outside the control of the parties, which renders performance impossible with respect to an asset for at least 30 days. The occurrence of any of these events could reduce our revenues and cash flow, and our ability to make distributions to our unitholders. Sunoco, Inc. continually considers opportunities presented by third parties with respect to its refinery assets. These opportunities may include offers to purchase and joint venture propositions. Sunoco, Inc. also continually considers changes to its refineries. Those changes may involve new facilities, reduction in certain operations or modifications of facilities or operations. Changes may be considered to meet market demands, to satisfy regulatory requirements or 55

environmental and safety objectives, to improve operational efficiency or for other reasons. Sunoco, Inc. is actively managing its assets and operations, and, therefore, changes of some nature, possibly material to its business relationship with us, are likely to occur at some point in the future. If Sunoco R&M satisfies only its minimum obligations under, or if we are unable to renew or extend, our pipelines and terminals storage and throughput agreement, our ability to make distributions would be reduced. Sunoco R&M may reduce the volumes it transports on our pipelines or delivers at our terminals to the minimum amounts it is obligated to transport or deliver under the pipelines and terminals storage and throughput agreement. If Sunoco R&M had only transported or delivered amounts equal to its minimum commitments during the past twelve months, we would not have been able to make the minimum quarterly distribution on all the units in the absence of a significant increase in new business from third parties. In addition, the terms of Sunoco R&M's obligations under the pipelines and terminals storage and throughput agreement are of relatively brief duration, ranging from five to seven years. If Sunoco R&M fails to use our facilities after expiration of the agreement and we are unable to generate additional revenues from third parties, our ability to make cash distributions to unitholders will be reduced. A significant or sustained decrease in demand for refined products in the markets served by our pipelines would reduce our ability to make distributions to our unitholders. A sustained decrease in demand for refined products in the markets served by our pipelines would significantly reduce our revenues and, therefore, reduce our ability to make distributions to our unitholders. Factors that could lead to a decrease in market demand include: . a recession or other adverse economic condition that results in lower spending by consumers on gasoline, diesel fuel, and travel; . an increase in the market price of crude oil that leads to higher refined product prices; . higher fuel taxes or other governmental or regulatory actions that increase, directly or indirectly, the cost of gasoline or other refined products; and . a shift by consumers to more fuel-efficient or alternative fuel vehicles or an increase in fuel economy, whether as a result of technological advances by manufacturers, pending legislation proposing to mandate higher fuel economy, or otherwise. Due to our lack of asset diversification, adverse developments in our pipelines and terminals businesses would reduce our ability to make distributions to our unitholders. We rely exclusively on the revenues generated from our pipelines and terminals businesses. Due to our lack of asset diversification, an adverse development in one of these businesses would have a significantly greater impact on our financial condition and results of operations than if we maintained more diverse assets. Rate regulation may not allow us to recover the full amount of increases in our costs, and a successful challenge to our rates would reduce our ability to make distributions to our unitholders. The primary rate-making methodology of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, or FERC, is price indexing. We use this methodology in all of our interstate markets. The indexing method allows a pipeline to increase its rates by a percentage equal to the change in the producer price index for finished goods minus 1%. If the index rises by less than 1% or falls, we will be required to reduce our rates that are based on the FERC's price indexing methodology if they exceed the new maximum allowable rate. In addition, changes in the index might not be large enough to fully reflect actual increases in our costs. The FERC's rate-making methodologies may limit our ability to set rates based on our true costs or may delay the use of rates that reflect increased costs. Any of the foregoing would adversely affect our revenues and cash flow. Under the Energy Policy Act adopted in 1992, our interstate pipeline rates were deemed just and reasonable or "grandfathered." As that Act applies to our rates, a person challenging a grandfathered rate must, as a threshold matter, establish 56

a substantial change since the date of enactment of the Act, in either the economic circumstances or the nature of the service that formed the basis for the rate. A complainant might assert that the creation of the partnership itself constitutes such a change, an argument that has not previously been specifically addressed by the FERC. If the FERC were to find a substantial change in circumstances, then the existing rates could be subject to detailed review. There is a risk that some of our rates could be found to be in excess of levels justified by our cost of service. In such event, the FERC would order us to reduce our rates. Any such reduction would result in lower revenues and cash flows and would reduce our ability to make distributions to our unitholders. In a 1995 decision involving an unrelated oil pipeline limited partnership, the FERC partially disallowed the inclusion of income taxes in that partnership's cost of service. In another FERC proceeding involving a different oil pipeline limited partnership, the FERC held that the oil pipeline limited partnership may not claim an income tax allowance for income attributable to non-corporate limited partners. If our rates were challenged and the FERC were to disallow the inclusion of an income tax allowance in our cost of service, it may be more difficult for us to justify our rates. In addition, a state commission could also investigate our intrastate rates or our terms and conditions of service on its own initiative or at the urging of a shipper or other interested party. If a state commission found that our rates exceeded levels justified by our cost of service, the state commission could order us to reduce our rates. Sunoco R&M has agreed not to challenge, or to cause others to challenge or assist others in challenging, our tariff rates in effect during the term of the pipelines and terminals storage and throughput agreement. This agreement does not prevent other current or future shippers from challenging our tariff rates. At the end of the term of the agreement, Sunoco R&M will be free to challenge, or to cause other parties to challenge or assist others in challenging, our tariff rates in effect at that time. If any party successfully challenges our tariff rates, the effect would be to reduce our ability to make distributions to our unitholders. Potential changes to current rate-making methods and procedures may impact the federal and state regulations under which we will operate in the future. In addition, if the FERC's petroleum pipeline ratemaking methodology changes, the new methodology could result in tariffs that generate lower revenues and cash flow and adversely affect our ability to make cash distributions to our unitholders. Our operations are subject to federal, state, and local laws and regulations relating to environmental protection and operational safety that could require us to make substantial expenditures. Our pipelines, gathering systems, and terminal operations are subject to increasingly strict environmental and safety laws and regulations. The transportation and storage of refined products and crude oil result in a risk that refined products, crude oil, and other hydrocarbons may be suddenly or gradually released into the environment, potentially causing substantial expenditures for a response action, significant government penalties, liability to government agencies for natural resources damages, personal injury, or property damages to private parties and significant business interruption. We own or lease a number of properties that have been used to store or distribute refined products and crude oil for many years. Many of these properties have also been operated by third parties whose handling, disposal, or release of hydrocarbons and other wastes were not under our control. We expect it will cost approximately $8.6 million to assess, monitor, and remediate 19 sites where releases of crude oil or petroleum products have occurred. We estimate that we will spend $8.2 million on storage tank inspection and repair over the next five years at our Nederland Terminal. We also expect to spend approximately $8.0 million in each of the next five years to comply with the recently adopted pipeline integrity management rule of the U.S. Department of Transportation, or DOT. Although Sunoco, Inc. has agreed to indemnify us for costs in excess of $8.0 million per year, up to a maximum of $15.0 million over the next five years with regard to compliance with this DOT pipeline integrity management rule, the cost to perform such activities may exceed these estimated amounts and the amount of any indemnification. If we are not able to recover the excess costs through increased tariffs and revenues, cash distributions to our unitholders would be adversely affected. 57

If existing or future state or federal government regulations banning or restricting the use of MTBE in gasoline take effect, our ability to make distributions to our unitholders would be reduced. Our Eastern refined product pipeline system transports from Sunoco R&M's refineries gasoline containing MTBE, an oxygenate used extensively to reduce motor vehicle tailpipe emissions. Many states, including New York and Connecticut, have banned or restricted the use of MTBE in gasoline commencing as early as 2003 in response to concerns about MTBE's adverse impact on ground or surface water. Other states are considering bans or restrictions on MTBE or opting out of the EPA's reformulated gasoline program, either of which events would reduce the use of MTBE. Any ban or restriction on the use of MTBE may lead to the greater use of ethanol. Unlike MTBE, which can be blended in gasoline at the refinery, ethanol is blended at the terminal and is not transported by our pipelines. Any revenues we would receive for blending ethanol might not offset the loss of revenues we would suffer from the reduced volumes we transport on our Eastern refined product pipelines. In addition, Congress is currently considering removing or modifying the oxygenate requirement, which could reduce the amount of gasoline transported on our Eastern refined product pipelines and reduce our ability to make distributions to our unitholders. When the price of foreign crude oil delivered to the United States is greater than that of domestic crude oil, or the price for the future delivery of crude oil falls below current prices, our customers are less likely to store crude oil, thereby reducing our storage revenues at our Nederland Terminal. Most of the crude oil stored at our Nederland Terminal is foreign crude oil. When the price of foreign crude oil delivered to the United States is greater than that of domestic crude oil, the demand for this storage capacity may decrease. If this market condition occurs, our storage revenues will be lower, which would reduce our ability to make distributions to our unitholders. When the price of crude oil in a given month exceeds the price of crude oil for delivery in a subsequent month, the market is backwardated. When the crude oil market is backwardated, the demand for storage capacity at our Nederland Terminal may decrease because crude oil producers can capture a premium for prompt deliveries rather than storing it for sale later. The market has been in backwardation for much of the last several years. In a backwardated market, our storage revenues may be lower, which would reduce our ability to make distributions to our unitholders. A material decrease in the supply, or increase in the price, of crude oil available for transport through our Western Pipeline System would reduce our ability to make distributions to our unitholders. The volume of crude oil we transport in our crude oil pipelines depends on the availability of attractively priced crude oil produced in the areas accessible to our crude oil pipelines and received from other common carrier pipelines. If we do not replace volumes lost due to a material temporary or permanent decrease in supply, the volumes of crude oil transported through our pipelines would decline, reducing our revenues and cash flow and our ability to make distributions to our unitholders. For example, some of the gathering systems that supply crude oil that we transport on our Western Pipeline System are experiencing a decline in production. In addition, sustained low crude oil prices could lead to a decline in drilling activity and production levels or the shutting-in or abandonment of marginal wells. Similarly, a temporary or permanent material increase in the price of crude oil supplied from any of these sources, as compared to alternative sources of crude oil available to our customers, would cause the volumes of crude oil transported in our pipelines to decline, thereby reducing our revenues and cash flow and adversely affecting our ability to make cash distributions to our unitholders. Any reduction in the capability of or the allocations to our shippers in interconnecting, third-party pipelines would cause a reduction of volumes transported in our pipelines and through our terminals, which would reduce our ability to make distributions to our unitholders. Sunoco R&M and the other users of our pipelines and terminals are dependent upon connections to third-party pipelines to receive and deliver crude oil and refined products. Any reduction of capabilities of these interconnecting pipelines due to testing, line repair, reduced operating pressures, or other causes would result in reduced volumes transported in our pipelines or through our terminals. Similarly, if additional shippers begin transporting volumes over interconnecting pipelines, the allocations to our existing shippers would be reduced, which would also reduce volumes transported in our pipelines or through 58

our terminals. Any reduction in volumes transported in our pipelines or through our terminals would adversely affect our revenues and cash flow. Our operations are subject to operational hazards and unforeseen interruptions for which we may not be adequately insured. Our operations are subject to operational hazards and unforeseen interruptions such as natural disasters, adverse weather, accidents, fires, explosions, hazardous materials releases, and other events beyond our control. These events might result in a loss of equipment or life, injury, or extensive property damage, as well as an interruption in our operations. We may not be able to maintain or obtain insurance of the type and amount we desire at reasonable rates. As a result of market conditions, premiums and deductibles for certain of our insurance policies have increased substantially, and could escalate further. In some instances, certain insurance could become unavailable or available only for reduced amounts of coverage. For example, insurance carriers are now requiring broad exclusions for losses due to war risk and terrorist acts. If we were to incur a significant liability for which we were not fully insured, it could have a material adverse effect on our financial position. We are exposed to the credit risk of our customers in the ordinary course of our crude oil acquisition and marketing activities. When we purchase crude oil at the wellhead, we sometimes pay all of or a portion of the production proceeds to an operator who distributes these proceeds to the various interest owners, an arrangement that exposes us to operator credit risk. Therefore, we must determine whether operators have sufficient financial resources to make these payments and distributions and to indemnify and defend us in case of a protest, action, or complaint. Even if our credit review and analysis mechanisms work properly, we may experience losses in dealings with operators and other parties. Competing pipelines could cause us to reduce our rates. If a competing crude oil or refined product pipeline charged lower rates than we do, we could be forced to reduce our rates to remain competitive, which would reduce our revenues and cash flow. Several companies have announced pipeline expansion or conversion projects that will likely begin competing with Explorer Pipeline Company and portions of our West Texas pipeline system this year. If we do not make acquisitions on economically acceptable terms, any future growth will be limited. Our future growth will depend principally on our ability to make acquisitions at attractive prices. If we are unable to identify attractive acquisition candidates or we are unable to acquire businesses on economically acceptable terms, our future growth will be limited. Any acquisition involves potential risks, including: . the inability to integrate the operations of recently acquired businesses; . the diversion of management's attention from other business concerns; . customer or key employee loss from the acquired businesses; and . a significant increase in our indebtedness and working capital requirements. Any of these factors would adversely affect our ability to achieve anticipated levels of cash flows from our acquisitions or realize other anticipated benefits. In addition, competition from other buyers could reduce our acquisition opportunities or cause us to pay a higher price than we might otherwise pay. Restrictions in our and Sunoco, Inc.'s debt agreements may prevent us from engaging in some beneficial transactions or paying distributions. 59

As of February 28, 2002, our total outstanding long-term indebtedness was approximately $255 million, including $250 million of senior notes and approximately $5 million of other indebtedness. Our payment of principal and interest on the debt will reduce the cash available for distribution on our units, as will our obligation to repurchase the senior notes upon the occurrence of specified events involving a change of control of our general partner. In addition, we will be prohibited by our credit facility and the senior notes from making cash distributions during an event of default, or if the payment of a distribution would cause an event of default, under any of our debt agreements. Our leverage and various limitations in our credit facility and the senior notes may reduce our ability to incur additional debt, engage in some transactions, and capitalize on acquisition or other business opportunities. Sunoco, Inc.'s revolving credit agreement also limits the aggregate amount of debt Sunoco, Inc. and its consolidated subsidiaries, including us, may borrow. Since Sunoco, Inc. owns and controls our general partner, we may not be permitted to incur additional debt if the effect would be to cause an event of default under Sunoco, Inc.'s revolving credit agreement. Any subsequent refinancing of Sunoco, Inc.'s or our current debt or any new debt could have similar or greater restrictions. The IRS could treat us as a corporation, which would substantially reduce the cash available for distribution to unitholders. The federal income tax benefit of an investment in us depends largely on our being treated as a partnership for federal income tax purposes. We have not requested, and do not plan to request, a ruling from the IRS on this or any other matter affecting us. Treatment of us as a corporation would result in a material reduction in the anticipated cash flow and after-tax return to you and thus would likely result in a substantial reduction in the value of the common units. Terrorist attacks aimed at our facilities could adversely affect our business. On September 11, 2001, the United States was the target of terrorist attacks of unprecedented scale. Since the September 11 attacks, the U.S. government has issued warnings that energy assets, specifically our nation's pipeline infrastructure, may be the future targets of terrorist organizations. These developments have subjected our operations to increased risks. Any future terrorist attack at our facilities, those of our customers and, in some cases, those of our pipelines, could have a material adverse effect on our business. ITEM 7A. QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK We are exposed to various market risks, including volatility in crude oil commodity prices and interest rates. To manage such exposure, we monitor our inventory levels and our expectations of future commodity prices and interest rates when making decisions with respect to risk management. We have not entered into derivative transactions that would expose us to price risk. Concurrent with the initial public offering, we entered into a $150 million credit facility. Although currently undrawn, we would pay interest on the drawn portion of this credit facility which would expose us to interest rate risk, since this credit facilty bears variable interest. 60

ITEM 8. FINANCIAL STATEMENTS AND SUPPLEMENTARY DATA REPORT OF INDEPENDENT AUDITORS To the Board of Directors of Sunoco Partners LLC: We have audited the accompanying combined balance sheets of Sunoco Logistics Partners L.P. (the "Partnership") as of December 31, 2001 and 2000 and the related combined statements of income and net parent investment and of cash flows for each of the three years in the period ended December 31, 2001. These financial statements, which reflect the cost-basis accounts of Sunoco Logistics (Predecessor), the predecessor to the Partnership, are the responsibility of the Partnership's management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audits. We conducted our audits in accordance with auditing standards generally accepted in the United States. Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement. An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. An audit also includes assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. We believe that our audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinion. In our opinion, the financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the combined financial position of Sunoco Logistics Partners L.P. at December 31, 2001 and 2000 and the combined results of its operations and its cash flows for each of the three years in the period ended December 31, 2001, in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States.

SUNOCO LOGISTICS PARTNERS L.P. NOTES TO HISTORICAL COMBINED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS 1. Summary of Significant Accounting Policies Basis of Presentation and Principles of Combination Sunoco Logistics Partners L.P. (the "Partnership") is a Delaware limited partnership formed by Sunoco, Inc. in October 2001 to acquire, own and operate a substantial portion of Sunoco, Inc.'s logistics business, consisting of refined product pipelines, terminalling and storage assets, crude oil pipelines, and crude oil acquisition and marketing assets located in the Northeast and Midwest United States (collectively, "Sunoco Logistics (Predecessor)" or the "Predecessor"). In February 2002, Sunoco, Inc., through its subsidiary Sunoco Partners LLC, the general partner of the Partnership, contributed the Predecessor to the Partnership in exchange for: (i) its 2% general partner interest in the Partnership; (ii) incentive distribution rights (as defined in the Partnership Agreement); (iii) 5,633,639 common units; (iv) 11,383,639 subordinated units; and (v) a special interest representing the right to receive from the Partnership on the closing of the Offering the net proceeds from the issuance of $250 million of ten-year senior notes by Sunoco Logistics Partners Operations L.P. (the "Operating Partnership"). The net proceeds are estimated to be $245.3 million. The Partnership concurrently issued 5.75 million common units (including 750,000 units issued pursuant to the underwriters' over-allotment option), representing a 24.8% limited partnership interest in the Partnership, in an initial public offering (the "Offering") at a price of $20.25 per unit. Proceeds from the Offering, which totalled approximately $102 million net of underwriting discounts and offering expenses, were used by the Partnership to establish working capital that was not contributed to the Partnership by Sunoco, Inc. The accompanying combined financial statements of Sunoco Logistics Partners L.P. consist of the historical cost-basis accounts of the Predecessor, after elimination of all balances and transactions within the combined group of operations. The combined financial statements also include the Predecessor's 9.4% investment in Explorer Pipeline Company, a corporate joint venture which is accounted for by the equity method. The equity income from this investment is included in other income in the combined statements of income and net parent investment. The financial statements include charges from Sunoco, Inc. and its subsidiaries (collectively, "Sunoco") for direct costs and allocations of indirect corporate overhead. Management of the Partnership believes that the allocation methods are reasonable, and that the allocations are representative of the costs that would have been incurred on a stand-alone basis. Description of Business Most of the assets of the Partnership support Sunoco, Inc.'s refining and marketing operations which are conducted primarily by Sunoco, Inc. (R&M) ("Sunoco R&M"). The Partnership operates in three principal business segments: Eastern Pipeline System, Terminal Facilities and Western Pipeline System. The Eastern Pipeline System transports refined products in the Northeast and Midwest largely for Sunoco R&M's Philadelphia, PA, Marcus Hook, PA and Toledo, OH refineries. The Eastern Pipeline System also transports crude oil on a pipeline in Ohio and Michigan that supplies both Sunoco R&M's Toledo refinery and third-party refineries. This segment also includes an interrefinery pipeline between Sunoco R&M's Marcus Hook and Philadelphia refineries and the equity interest in Explorer Pipeline Company, which transports refined products from the Gulf Coast to numerous terminals throughout the Midwest. 65

SUNOCO LOGISTICS PARTNERS L.P. NOTES TO HISTORICAL COMBINED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS--(Continued) The Terminal Facilities segment includes a network of 32 refined product terminals in the Northeast and Midwest that distribute products primarily to Sunoco R&M's retail outlets, an 11.2 million-barrel marine crude oil terminal on the Texas Gulf Coast and a one million barrel liquefied petroleum gas ("LPG") storage facility near Detroit, MI. This segment also owns and operates one inland and two marine crude oil terminals and the related storage facilities and pipelines that supply all of the crude oil processed by Sunoco R&M's Philadelphia refinery. Finally, this segment includes a two million barrel refined product storage terminal in Marcus Hook, PA that is used by Sunoco R&M's Marcus Hook refinery to source barrels to the Predecessor's pipelines. The Western Pipeline System acquires, transports and markets crude oil principally in Oklahoma and Texas for Sunoco R&M's Tulsa, OK and Toledo, OH refineries and also for other customers. Use of Estimates The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the amounts reported in the financial statements and accompanying notes. Actual amounts could differ from these estimates. Revenue Recognition Crude oil gathering and marketing revenues are recognized when title to the crude oil is transferred to the customer. Revenues are not recognized for crude oil exchange transactions which are entered into primarily to acquire crude oil of a desired quality or to reduce transportation costs by taking delivery closer to the Partnership's end markets. Any net differential for exchange transactions is recorded as an adjustment of inventory costs in the purchases component of cost of products sold and operating expenses in the combined statements of income and net parent investment. Such amounts are not deemed to be material. Terminalling and storage revenues are recognized at the time the services are provided. Pipeline revenues are recognized upon delivery of the barrels to the location designated by the shipper. Affiliated revenues consist of sales of crude oil as well as the provision of crude oil and refined product pipeline transportation, terminalling and storage services to Sunoco R&M. Affiliated revenues reflect transfer prices consistently used to prepare segment information for Sunoco, Inc.'s historical consolidated financial statements. Sales of crude oil to affiliates are computed using the formula-based pricing mechanism of a supply agreement with Sunoco R&M. Management of the Partnership believes these terms to be comparable to those that could be negotiated with an unrelated third party. Pipeline revenues from affiliates are generally determined using posted third-party tariffs. Affiliated revenues from terminalling and storage are generally equal to all of the costs incurred for these activities, including operating, maintenance and environmental remediation expenditures. Inventories Inventories are valued at the lower of cost or market. Crude oil reflects an allocation to the Predecessor by Sunoco R&M of the Predecessor's share of Sunoco R&M's crude oil inventory, the cost of which has been determined using the last-in, first-out method ("LIFO"). Under this allocation methodology, the cost of products sold consists of the actual crude oil acquisition costs of the Predecessor. Such costs are adjusted to reflect increases or decreases in crude oil inventory quantities, which are valued based on the changes in Sunoco, Inc.'s LIFO inventory layers. Effective with the transfer of the Predecessor's operations to the Partnership, the Partnership is maintaining a separate LIFO pool and all LIFO computations are being made on a stand-alone basis. The cost of materials, supplies and other inventories is determined using principally the average cost method. 66

SUNOCO LOGISTICS PARTNERS L.P. NOTES TO HISTORICAL COMBINED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS--(Continued) Properties, Plants and Equipment Properties, plants and equipment are stated at cost. Additions to properties, plants and equipment, including replacements and improvements, are recorded at cost. Repair and maintenance expenditures are charged to expense as incurred. Depreciation is provided principally using the straight-line method based on the estimated useful lives of the related assets. For certain interstate pipelines, the depreciation rate is applied to the net asset value based on FERC requirements. When FERC-regulated property, plant and equipment is retired or otherwise disposed of, the cost less net proceeds is charged to accumulated depreciation and amortization, except that gains and losses for those groups are reflected in other income in the combined statements of income and net parent investment for unusual disposals. Gains and losses on the disposal of non-FERC properties, plants and equipment are reflected in other income in the combined statements of income and net parent investment. Impairment of Long-Lived Assets Long-lived assets other than those held for sale are reviewed for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of the assets may not be recoverable. An asset is considered to be impaired when the undiscounted estimated net cash flows expected to be generated by the asset are less than its carrying amount. The impairment recognized is the amount by which the carrying amount exceeds the fair market value of the impaired asset. Long-lived assets held for sale are carried at the lower of their carrying amount or fair market value less cost to sell the assets. Effective January 1, 2002, the Partnership will adopt Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 144, "Accounting for the Impairment or Disposal of Long-Lived Assets," which changes the method of accounting for the impairment of long-lived assets (see New Accounting Principles below). Environmental Remediation The Partnership accrues environmental remediation costs for work at identified sites where an assessment has indicated that cleanup costs are probable and reasonably estimable. Such accruals are undiscounted and are based on currently available information, estimated timing of remedial actions and related inflation assumptions, existing technology and presently enacted laws and regulations. Income Taxes The Predecessor is included in the consolidated federal income tax return filed by Sunoco, Inc. However, the provision for federal income taxes included in the combined statements of income and net parent investment and the deferred tax amounts reflected in the combined balance sheets have been determined on a separate-return basis. Any current federal income tax amounts due on a separate-return basis are settled with Sunoco, Inc. through the net parent investment account. Effective with the Offering, substantially all income taxes are the responsibility of the unitholders and not the Partnership. New Accounting Principles In June 1998, Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 133, "Accounting for Derivative Instruments and Hedging Activities," was issued and, in June 2000, it was amended by Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 138, "Accounting for Certain Derivative Instruments and Certain Hedging Activities" (collectively, "new derivative accounting"). The new derivative accounting requires recognition of all derivative contracts in the balance sheet at their fair value. If the derivative contracts qualify for hedge accounting, depending on their nature, changes in their fair values are either offset in net income against the changes in the fair values of the items being hedged or reflected initially as a separate component of the net parent investment and subsequently recognized in net income when the hedged items are recognized in net income. 67

SUNOCO LOGISTICS PARTNERS L.P. NOTES TO HISTORICAL COMBINED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS--(Continued) The ineffective portions of changes in the fair values of derivative contracts that qualify for hedge accounting as well as changes in fair value of all other derivatives are immediately recognized in net income. The new derivative accounting was adopted effective January 1, 2001. There was no impact on net income during 2001. In July 2001, Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 142, "Goodwill and Other Intangible Assets" ("SFAS No. 142"), was issued. The Partnership will adopt SFAS No. 142 effective January 1, 2002 when adoption is mandatory. SFAS No. 142 will require the testing of goodwill and indefinite-lived intangible assets for impairment rather than amortizing them. The Partnership is currently assessing the impact of adopting SFAS No. 142 on its combined financial statements. The current level of annual amortization of goodwill and indefinite-lived intangible assets, which will be eliminated upon the adoption of SFAS No. 142, is approximately $0.8 million. In August 2001, Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 143, "Accounting for Asset Retirement Obligations" ("SFAS No. 143"), was issued. This statement significantly changes the method of accruing for costs associated with the retirement of fixed assets that an entity is legally obligated to incur. The Partnership will evaluate the impact and timing of implementing SFAS No. 143. Implementation of this standard is required no later than January 1, 2003. In August 2001, Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 144, "Accounting for the Impairment or Disposal of Long-Lived Assets" ("SFAS No. 144"), was issued. The Partnership will adopt SFAS No. 144 effective January 1, 2002 when adoption is mandatory. Among other things, SFAS No. 144 significantly changes the criteria that would have to be met to classify an asset as held-for-sale. SFAS No. 144 supersedes Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 121, "Accounting for the Impairment of Long-Lived Assets and for Long-Lived Assets to be Disposed Of" and the provisions of Accounting Principles Board Opinion 30, "Reporting the Results of Operations--Reporting the Effects of Disposal of a Segment of a Business, and Extraordinary, Unusual and Infrequently Occurring Events and Transactions," that relate to reporting the effects of a disposal of a segment of a business. The Partnership is currently assessing the impact of adopting SFAS No. 144 on its combined financial statements. 2. Related Party Transactions Accounts Receivable, Affiliated Companies Substantially all of the related party transactions discussed below were settled immediately through the net parent investment account. The balance in accounts receivable from affiliated companies represents the net amount owed to the Predecessor by Sunoco R&M related to the remaining intercompany transactions. Affiliated revenues in the combined statements of income and net parent investment consist of sales of crude oil as well as the provision of crude oil and refined product pipeline transportation, terminalling and storage services to Sunoco R&M. Affiliated revenues reflect transfer prices consistently used to prepare segment information for Sunoco, Inc.'s historical consolidated financial statements. Sales of crude oil are computed using the formula-based pricing mechanism of a supply agreement with Sunoco R&M. Management of the Partnership believes these terms to be comparable to those that could be negotiated with an unrelated third party. Pipeline revenues are generally determined using posted third-party tariffs. Revenues from terminalling and storage were generally equal to all of the costs incurred for these activities, including operating, maintenance and environmental remediation expenditures. 68

SUNOCO LOGISTICS PARTNERS L.P. NOTES TO HISTORICAL COMBINED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS--(Continued) Concurrently with the closing of the Offering, the Partnership entered into a pipelines and terminals storage and throughput agreement and various other agreements with Sunoco R&M under which the Partnership is charging Sunoco R&M fees for services provided under these agreements comparable to those charged in arm's-length, third-party transactions. Under the pipelines and terminals storage and throughput agreement, Sunoco R&M has agreed to pay the Partnership a minimum level of revenues for transporting and terminalling refined products. Sunoco R&M also has agreed to minimum throughputs of refined products and crude oil in the Partnership's Inkster Terminal, Fort Mifflin Terminal Complex, Marcus Hook Tank Farm and certain crude oil pipelines. In addition, effective January 1, 2002, Sunoco, Inc. adopted fee arrangements consistent with this contract as the basis for the transfer prices to be used in preparation of its segment information. Accordingly, such fees will be reflected in the Predecessor's financial statements for the period January 1, 2002 through the closing of the Offering. Under various other agreements entered into at the closing of the Offering, Sunoco R&M is, among other things, purchasing from the Partnership at market-based rates particular grades of crude oil that the Partnership's crude oil acquisition and marketing business purchases for delivery to pipelines in: Longview, Trent, Tye, and Colorado City, Texas; Haynesville, Louisiana; Marysville and Lewiston, Michigan; and Tulsa, Oklahoma. At Marysville and Lewiston, Michigan, the Partnership exchanges Michigan sweet and Michigan sour crude oil it owns for domestic sweet crude oil supplied by Sunoco R&M at market-based rates. The initial term of these agreements is two months. These agreements will automatically renew on a monthly basis unless terminated by either party on 30 days' written notice. Sunoco R&M has also agreed to lease from the Partnership the 58 miles of interrefinery pipelines between Sunoco R&M's Philadelphia and Marcus Hook refineries for a term of 20 years. Selling, general and administrative expenses in the combined statements of income and net parent investment include costs allocated to the Predecessor totaling $9.0 million, $10.1 million and $10.8 million for the years ended December 31, 1999, 2000 and 2001, respectively. These expenses incurred by Sunoco cover costs of centralized corporate functions such as legal, accounting, treasury, engineering, information technology, insurance and other corporate services. Such expenses are based on amounts negotiated between the parties, which approximate Sunoco's cost of providing such services. Under an omnibus agreement with Sunoco, Inc. that the Partnership entered into at the closing of the Offering, Sunoco, Inc. is continuing to provide these services for three years for an annual administrative fee initially in the amount of $8.0 million, which may be increased in the second and third years following the Offering by the lesser of 2.5% or the consumer price index for the applicable year. These costs may also increase if the Partnership makes an acquisition or constructs additional assets that require an increase in the level of general and administrative services received by the Partnership from the general partner or Sunoco, Inc. The $8.0 million fee includes expenses incurred by Sunoco, Inc. and its affiliates to perform the centralized corporate functions described above. This fee does not include salaries of pipeline and terminal personnel or other employees of the general partner, including senior executives, or the cost of their employee benefits, such as 401(k), pension, and health insurance benefits. The Partnership is also reimbursing Sunoco, Inc. and its affiliates for these costs and other direct expenses incurred on the Partnership's behalf. In addition, the Partnership anticipates incurring additional general and administrative costs, including costs for tax return preparation, annual and quarterly reports to unitholders, investor relations, registrar and transfer agent fees, and other costs related to operating as a separate publicly held entity. The Partnership estimates that these incremental costs will be approximately $4.0 million (unaudited) per year, including incremental insurance costs. 69

SUNOCO LOGISTICS PARTNERS L.P. NOTES TO HISTORICAL COMBINED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS--(Continued) The Partnership entered into a treasury services agreement with Sunoco, Inc. at the closing of the Offering pursuant to which it, among other things, participates in Sunoco, Inc.'s centralized cash management program. Under this program, all of the Partnership's cash receipts and cash disbursements are processed, together with those of Sunoco, Inc. and its other subsidiaries, through Sunoco, Inc.'s cash accounts with a corresponding credit or charge to an intercompany account. The intercompany balances are settled periodically, but no less frequently than at the end of each month. 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 Partnership's revolving credit facility. The Partnership entered into a license agreement at the closing of the Offering with Sunoco, Inc. and certain of its affiliates, including its general partner, Sunoco Partners LLC, pursuant to which the Partnership granted to Sunoco Partners LLC a license to the Partnership's intellectual property so that Sunoco Partners LLC can manage the Partnership's operations and create intellectual property using the Partnership's intellectual property. Sunoco Partners LLC will assign to the Partnership the new intellectual property it creates in operating the Partnership's business. Sunoco Partners LLC has also licensed to the Partnership certain of its own intellectual property for use in the conduct of the Partnership's business and the Partnership licensed to Sunoco Partners LLC certain of the Partnership's intellectual property for use in the conduct of its business. The license agreement also grants to the Partnership a license to use the trademarks, trade names, and service marks of Sunoco, Inc. in the conduct of the Partnership's business. Costs of employees who work in the pipeline, terminalling, storage and crude oil gathering operations, including senior executives, are charged directly to the Predecessor and such charges include salary and employee benefit costs. Employee benefits include non-contributory defined benefit retirement plans, defined contribution 401(k) plans, employee and retiree medical, dental and life insurance plans, incentive compensation plans (i.e., cash and stock awards) and other such benefits. The Predecessor's share of allocated Sunoco employee benefit plan expenses was $13.3 million, $18.7 million and $19.6 million for the years ended December 31, 1999, 2000 and 2001, respectively. These expenses are reflected primarily in cost of products sold and operating expenses in the combined statements of income and net parent investment. In connection with the transfer of the Predecessor's operations to the Partnership, these employees, including senior executives, became employees of the Partnership's general partner or its affiliates, wholly owned subsidiaries of Sunoco, Inc. The Partnership has no employees. Note Receivable from Affiliate Effective October 1, 2000, the Predecessor loaned $20.0 million to Sunoco. The loan, which was evidenced by a note repaid on January 1, 2002, earned interest at a rate based on the short-term applicable federal rate established by the Internal Revenue Service. The interest rate on this note at December 31, 2001 was 5.41%. Short-Term Borrowings due Affiliate At December 31, 2000, the Predecessor had two short-term notes totaling $45.0 million due Sunoco, which were repaid during 2001. The notes bore interest at a rate based on the short-term applicable federal rate established by the Internal Revenue Service. The weighted-average interest rate related to these notes was 6.86% at December 31, 2000. 70

SUNOCO LOGISTICS PARTNERS L.P.

This debt was not assumed by the Partnership. Net Parent Investment The net parent investment represents a net balance resulting from the settlement of intercompany transactions (including federal income taxes) between the Predecessor and Sunoco as well as Sunoco's ownership interest in the net assets of the Predecessor. It also reflects the Predecessor's participation in Sunoco's central cash management program, wherein all of the Predecessor's cash receipts are remitted to Sunoco and all cash disbursements are funded by Sunoco. There are no terms of settlement or interest charges attributable to this balance. The net parent investment excludes amounts loaned to/borrowed from Sunoco evidenced by interest-bearing notes. 3.

Long-Term Debt In connection with the acquisition of the crude oil transportation and marketing operations of Pride Companies, L.P. on October 1, 1999 (Note 10), the Predecessor assumed a $5.3 million note. The note is due in 2014 with interest payable at an annual rate of 8%. The note is secured by certain of the acquired assets. The amount of this note and the long-term debt due affiliate (Note 2) maturing in the years 2002 through 2006 is as follows (in thousands of dollars): Pride Long-Term Debt Note Due Affiliate Total ----- -------------- ------- 2002................... $228 $75,000 $75,228 2003................... $246 $ -- $ 246 2004................... $269 $25,000 $25,269 2005................... $289 $40,000 $40,289 2006................... $313 $ -- $ 313 The long-term debt due affiliate was not assumed by the Partnership. In conjunction with the Offering, Sunoco Logistics Partners Operations L.P., the operating partnership of the Partnership, issued $250.0 million of ten-year senior notes and established a three-year $150.0 million revolving credit facility. The net proceeds of the senior notes were distributed to Sunoco, Inc. in connection with the contribution by Sunoco, Inc. of the Predecessor to the Partnership. The Partnership and the operating subsidiaries of Sunoco Logistics Partners Operations L.P. serve as guarantors of the ten-year senior notes and of any borrowings under the revolving credit facility. Cash payments for interest related to the Pride note and amounts due affiliates were $7.3 million, $12.4 million and $13.7 million in 1999, 2000 and 2001, respectively. 73

SUNOCO LOGISTICS PARTNERS L.P. NOTES TO HISTORICAL COMBINED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS--(Continued) 7. Commitments and Contingent Liabilities The Predecessor, as lessee, has noncancelable operating leases for land, office space and equipment. Total rental expense for 1999, 2000 and 2001 amounted to $3.6 million, $5.4 million and $3.7 million, respectively. The aggregate amount of future minimum annual rentals as of December 31, 2001 applicable to noncancelable operating leases is as follows (in thousands of dollars): Year Ending December 31: 2002........................................................... $1,744 2003........................................................... 1,336 2004........................................................... 841 2005........................................................... 231 2006........................................................... 3 ------ Total.......................................................... $4,155 ====== 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 result in liabilities and loss contingencies for remediation at the Partnership's facilities and at third-party or formerly owned sites. The accrued liability for environmental remediation is classified in the combined balance sheets as follows (in thousands of dollars): December 31, --------------------- 2000 2001 ------- ------- Accrued liabilities ................................ $ 6,333 $ 8,363 Other deferred credits and liabilities ............. 9,082 7,888 ------- ------- $15,415 $16,251 ======= ======= The accrued liability for environmental remediation does not include any amounts attributable to unasserted claims, nor have any recoveries from insurance been assumed. It is expected that the amounts accrued will be paid over approximately ten years. Pretax charges against income for environmental remediation totaled $3.9 million, $8.5 million and $6.2 million in the years ended December 31, 1999, 2000 and 2001, 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. As discussed below, the Partnership's future costs will also be impacted by an indemnification from Sunoco, Inc. The Predecessor is a party to certain pending and threatened claims. Although the ultimate outcome of these claims cannot be ascertained at this time, it is reasonably possible that some portion of them could be resolved unfavorably to the Predecessor. Management of the Partnership does not believe that any liabilities which may arise from such claims and the environmental matters discussed above would be material in relation to the financial position of the Predecessor at December 31, 2001. Furthermore, management of the Partnership does not believe that the overall costs for such matters will have a material impact, over an extended period of time, on the Partnership's operations, cash flows or liquidity. 74

SUNOCO LOGISTICS PARTNERS, L.P. NOTES TO HISTORICAL COMBINED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS--(Continued) Under the omnibus agreement entered into at the closing of the Offering, Sunoco R&M is reimbursing Sunoco Logistics Partners L.P. for operating expenses and capital expenditures in excess of $8.0 million per year (up to an aggregate maximum of $15.0 million over a five-year period) incurred to comply with the U.S. Department of Transportation's pipeline integrity management rule. In addition, Sunoco R&M is, at its expense, completing for Sunoco Logistics Partners L.P.'s Darby Creek Tank Farm certain tank maintenance and inspection projects expected to be completed within one year from the closing of the Offering. Sunoco R&M is also reimbursing Sunoco Logistics Partners L.P. for up to $10.0 million of expenditures required at the Darby Creek and Marcus Hook Tank Farms to maintain compliance with existing industry standards and regulatory requirements. The Partnership is reflecting outlays for these programs as operating expenses or capital expenditures, as appropriate. Capital expenditures are being depreciated over their useful lives. Reimbursements by Sunoco R&M are being reflected as capital contributions. Sunoco, Inc. has indemnified Sunoco Logistics Partners L.P. for 30 years from environmental and toxic tort liabilities related to the assets contributed to the Partnership that arise from the operation of such assets prior to the closing of the Offering. Sunoco, Inc. has indemnified the Partnership for 100% of all losses asserted within the first 21 years of closing. Sunoco, Inc.'s share of liability for claims asserted thereafter will decrease by 10% a year. For example, for a claim asserted during the twenty-third year after closing, Sunoco, Inc. would be required to indemnify the Partnership for 80% of its loss.

Investment in Explorer Pipeline Company The following table provides summarized financial information on a 100% basis for Explorer Pipeline Company (in thousands of dollars): 1999 2000 2001 -------- -------- -------- Income Statement Data: Total revenues ............................. $150,776 $146,719 $178,082 Income before income taxes ................. $ 78,886 $ 61,655 $ 80,047 Net income ................................. $ 50,170 $ 38,859 $ 50,610 Balance Sheet Data (as of year end): Current assets ............................. $ 27,601 $ 35,012 $ 44,075 Non-current assets ......................... $132,010 $129,935 $132,327 Current liabilities ........................ $ 17,328 $ 24,320 $ 20,976 Non-current liabilities .................... $140,573 $139,953 $149,407 Net equity ................................. $ 1,710 $ 674 $ 6,019 9. Financial Instruments and Concentration of Credit Risk The Predecessor's current assets (other than inventories and deferred income taxes) and current liabilities are financial instruments. The estimated fair value of these financial instruments approximates their carrying amounts. The estimated fair values of the long-term debt (primarily amounts due affiliate) at December 31, 2000 and 2001 were $146.6 million and $71.7 million, respectively, compared to the carrying amounts of $144.8 million and $69.6 million, respectively. The estimated fair value of the $20.0 million note receivable from affiliate was $19.9 million at December 31, 2000. The estimated fair values were based upon the current interest rates at the balance sheet dates for similar issues. Approximately 66% of the sales and other operating revenue recognized by the Predecessor during 2001 is derived from Sunoco R&M. The Partnership sells crude oil to Sunoco R&M, transports crude oil and refined products to/from Sunoco R&M's refineries and provides terminalling and storage services for Sunoco R&M. The Partnership does not believe that the transactions with Sunoco R&M expose it to significant credit risk. The Partnership's other trade relationships are primarily with major integrated oil companies, independent oil companies and other pipelines and wholesalers. These concentrations of customers may affect the Partnership's overall credit risk in that the customers (including Sunoco R&M) may be similarly affected by changes in economic, regulatory or other factors. The Partnership's customers' credit positions are analyzed prior to extending credit. The Partnership manages its exposure to credit risk through credit analysis, credit approvals, credit limits and monitoring procedures, and for certain transactions may utilize letters of credit, prepayments and guarantees. 10. Acquisition of Pride Companies, L.P. Crude Oil Transportation and Marketing Operations On October 1, 1999, the Predecessor acquired the crude oil transportation and marketing operations of Pride Companies, L.P. ("Pride") for $29.6 million in cash and the assumption of $5.3 million of debt. The acquisition included Pride's 800-mile crude oil pipeline system, 800,000 barrels of tankage and related assets, and the right to purchase 35,000 barrels per day of third-party lease crude oil. The acquisition has been accounted for as a purchase. The results of operations have been included in the combined statements of income and net parent investment since the date of acquisition. The purchase price has been allocated to the assets acquired and liabilities assumed based on their relative fair 76

PART III ITEM 10. DIRECTORS AND EXECUTIVE OFFICERS OF THE REGISTRANT Sunoco Partners LLC, as our general partner, manages our operations and activities on our behalf. Our general partner is not elected by our unitholders and is not subject to re-election on a regular basis in the future. Unitholders do not directly or indirectly participate in our management or operation. Our general partner owes a fiduciary duty to our unitholders. Our general partner is liable, as general partner, for all of our debts (to the extent not paid from our assets), except for indebtedness or other obligations that are made specifically nonrecourse to it. At least two members of the board of directors of our general partner will serve on a conflicts committee to review specific matters that the board believes may involve conflicts of interest. The conflicts committee will determine if the resolution of the conflict of interest is fair and reasonable to us. The members of the conflicts committee may not be officers or employees of our general partner or directors, officers, or employees of its affiliates, and must meet the independence and experience standards to serve on an audit committee of a board of directors established by the New York Stock Exchange. Any matters approved by the conflicts committee will be conclusively deemed to be fair and reasonable to us, approved by all of our partners, and not a breach by our general partner of any duties it may owe us or our unitholders. In addition, the members of the conflicts committee will also serve on an audit committee that will review our external financial reporting, recommend engagement of our independent auditors, and review procedures for internal auditing and the adequacy of our internal accounting controls. The board of directors of our general partner will oversee compensation decisions for the officers of our general partner as well as the compensation plans described below. In compliance with the rules of the New York Stock Exchange, the members of the board of directors named below will appoint two independent members within three months of the listing of the common units on the New York Stock Exchange and one additional independent member within 12 months of that listing. The three newly appointed members will serve as the initial members of the audit committee. We are managed and operated by the directors and officers of Sunoco Partners LLC, our general partner. Most of our operational personnel are employees of our general partner. The officers of Sunoco Partners LLC, other than Paul A. Mulholland, our Treasurer, and Joseph P. Krott who is acting as our Comptroller on an interim basis, spend substantially all of their time managing our business and affairs. Our non-executive directors are devoting as much time as is necessary to prepare for and attend board of directors and committee meetings.

ITEM 11. EXECUTIVE COMPENSATION Sunoco Logistics Partners L.P. and Sunoco Partners LLC, the general partner, were formed on October 15, 2001, but the general partner paid no compensation to its directors and officers with respect to the 2001 fiscal year. We have not accrued any obligations with respect to management incentive or retirement benefits for the directors and officers during 2001. Officers and employees of the general partner may participate in employee benefit plans and arrangements sponsored by the general partner or its affiliates, including plans that may be established by the general partner or its affiliates in the future. Compensation of Directors Directors who are employees of Sunoco Partners LLC or its affiliates receive no additional compensation for service on our general partner's board of directors or any committees of the board. Non-employee directors will receive an annual retainer of $15,000 in cash, to be paid quarterly, and a number of restricted units to be paid quarterly under the Sunoco Partners LLC Long-Term Incentive Plan, having an aggregate fair market value equal to $15,000 on an annual basis (the fair market value of each such quarterly payment of restricted units being calculated as of the date of such payment). Chairpersons of any standing committee of the board will receive an annual committee chair retainer of $1,500 in cash. Non-employee directors will receive $1,500 in cash for each board meeting attended, and $1,000 in cash for each committee meeting attended. In addition, each non-employee director will be reimbursed for out-of-pocket expenses in connection with attending meetings of the board of directors or committees. Each director will be fully indemnified by us for actions associated with being a director to the extent permitted under Delaware law. Long-Term Incentive Plan The general partner has adopted the Sunoco Partners LLC Long-Term Incentive Plan for employees and directors of the general partner and employees of its affiliates who perform services for us. The long-term incentive plan consists of two components: restricted units and unit options. The long-term incentive plan currently permits the grant of awards covering an aggregate of 1,250,000 units. The general partner's board of directors administers the plan. The general partner's board of directors in its discretion may terminate or amend the long-term incentive plan at any time with respect to any units for which a grant has not yet been made. The general partner's board of directors also has the right to alter or amend the long-term incentive plan or any part of the plan from time to time, including increasing the number of units that may be granted subject to unitholder approval as required by the exchange upon which the common units are listed at that time. However, no change in any outstanding grant may be made that would materially impair the rights of the participant without the consent of the participant. Restricted Units A restricted unit is a "phantom" unit that entitles the grantee to receive a common unit upon the vesting of the phantom unit or, in the discretion of the general partner's board of directors, cash equivalent to the value of a common unit. We expect to make an initial grant of an aggregate of approximately 125,000 restricted units to employees and directors of the general partner and employees of its affiliates who perform services for us. In the future, the board may determine to make additional grants under the plan to employees and directors containing such terms as the board shall determine under the plan. The general partner's board of directors will determine the period over which restricted units granted to employees and directors will vest. The board may base its determination upon the achievement of specified financial objectives. In addition, the restricted units will vest upon a change of control of Sunoco Logistics Partners L.P., the general partner, or Sunoco, Inc. If a grantee's employment or membership on the board of directors terminates for any reason, the grantee's restricted units will be automatically forfeited unless, and to the extent, the general partner's board of directors provides otherwise. Common units to be delivered upon the vesting of restricted units may be common units acquired by the general partner in the open market, common units already owned by the general partner, common units acquired by the general partner directly from us or any other person or any combination of the foregoing. The general partner will be entitled to reimbursement by us for the 83

cost incurred in acquiring common units. If we issue new common units upon vesting of the restricted units, the total number of common units outstanding will increase. The general partner's board of directors , in its discretion, may grant tandem distribution equivalent rights with respect to restricted units. We intend the issuance of the common units upon vesting of the restricted units under the plan to serve as a means of incentive compensation for performance and not primarily as an opportunity to participate in the equity appreciation of the common units. Therefore, plan participants will not pay any consideration for the common units they receive, and we will receive no remuneration for the units. Unit Options The long-term incentive plan currently permits the grant of options covering common units. In the future, the general partner's board of directors may determine to make grants under the plan to employees and directors containing such terms as the board of directors shall determine. Unit options will have an exercise price that may not be less than the fair market value of the units on the date of grant. In general, unit options granted will become exercisable over a period determined by the general partner's board of directors. In addition, the unit options will become exercisable upon a change in control of Sunoco Logistics Partners L.P., the general partner, or Sunoco, Inc. or upon the achievement of specified financial objectives. Upon exercise of a unit option, the general partner will acquire common units in the open market or directly from any other person or us or use common units already owned by the general partner, or any combination of the foregoing. The general partner will be entitled to reimbursement by us for the difference between the cost incurred by the general partner in acquiring these common units and the proceeds received by the general partner from an optionee at the time of exercise. Thus, the cost of the unit options will be borne by us. If we issue new common units upon exercise of the unit options, the total number of common units outstanding will increase, and the general partner will pay us the proceeds it received from the optionee upon exercise of the unit option. The unit option plan has been designed to furnish additional compensation to employees and directors and to align their economic interests with those of common unitholders. Management Incentive Plan The general partner has adopted the Sunoco Partners LLC Annual Incentive Compensation Plan. The management incentive plan is designed to enhance the performance of the general partner's key employees by rewarding them with cash awards for achieving annual financial and operational performance objectives. The general partner's board of directors in its discretion may determine individual participants and payments, if any, for each fiscal year. The board of directors of the general partner may amend or change the management incentive plan at any time. We will reimburse the general partner for payments and costs incurred under the plan. ITEM 12. SECURITY OWNERSHIP OF CERTAIN BENEFICIAL OWNERS AND MANAGEMENT The following table sets forth the beneficial ownership of units of Sunoco Logistics Partners L.P. held by beneficial owners of 5% or more of the units, by directors of Sunoco Partners LLC (our general partner), by each named executive officer and by all directors and officers of Sunoco Partners LLC as a group as of February 28, 2002.

ITEM 13. CERTAIN RELATIONSHIPS AND RELATED TRANSACTIONS The general partner owns 5,633,639 common units and 11,383,639 subordinated units, representing a 73.2% limited partner interest in us. In addition, the general partner also owns a 2% general partner interest in us. The general partner's ability, as general partner, to manage and operate us, and its ownership of a 73.2% limited partner interest in us effectively gives the general partner the ability to veto some actions of Sunoco Logistics Partners L.P. and to control the management of Sunoco Logistics Partners L.P. Distribution and Payments to the General Partner and Its Affiliates The following table summarizes the distribution and payments made and to be made by us to our general partner and its affiliates in connection with our formation, ongoing operation, and liquidation. These distributions and payments were made among affiliated entities and, consequently, are not the result of arm's-length negotiations. 85

Formation Stage The consideration received by our general partner and its affiliates for the contribution of the assets and liabilities Sunoco Logistics (Predecessor)...................... . 5,633,639 common units; . 11,383,639 subordinated units; . 2% general partner interest in Sunoco Logistics Partners L.P.; . the incentive distribution rights; and . approximately $245.3 million from the proceeds of the issuance of the senior notes. Operational Stage Distributions of available cash to our general partner................ We will generally make cash distributions 98% to the unitholders, including our general partner, as holder of an aggregate of 5,633,639 common units and all of the subordinated units, and 2% to the general partner. In addition, if distributions exceed the minimum quarterly distribution and other higher target levels, our general partner will be entitled to increasing percentages of the distributions, up to 50% of the distributions above the highest target level. Assuming we have sufficient available cash to pay the full minimum quarterly distribution on all of our outstanding units for four quarters, our general partner would receive an annual distribution of approximately $0.8 million on its 2% general partner interest and $30.6 million on its common units and subordinated units. Payments to our general partner and its affiliates..................... We will pay Sunoco, Inc. or its affiliates an administrative fee, initially $8.0 million per year, for the provision of various general and administrative services for our benefit. In addition, the general partner will be entitled to reimbursement for all expenses it incurs, on our behalf, including other general and administrative expenses. These reimbursable expenses include the salaries and the cost of employee benefits of employees of the general partner who provide services to us, as provided in the Omnibus Agreement. Our general partner has sole discretion in determining the amount of these expenses. Withdrawal or removal of our general partner.................... If our general partner withdraws or is removed, its general partner interest and its incentive distribution rights will either be sold to the new general partner for cash or converted into common units, in each case for an amount equal to the fair market value of those interests as provided in the Partnership Agreement. Liquidation Stage Liquidation......................... Upon our liquidation, the partners, including our general partner, will be entitled to receive liquidating distributions according to their particular capital account balances. 86

Other Agreements We have entered into various agreements with Sunoco, Inc., Sunoco R&M and our general partner. Those agreements did not result from arm's-length negotiations and they, or any of the transactions they provide for, may be effected on terms at least as favorable to the parties to those agreements as they could have obtained from unaffiliated third parties. Omnibus Agreement Upon the closing of our initial public offering, we entered into an omnibus agreement with Sunoco, Inc., Sunoco R&M, and our general partner that addresses the following matters: . Sunoco R&M's obligation to reimburse us for specified operating expenses and capital expenditures or otherwise to complete certain tank maintenance and inspection projects; . our obligation to pay our general partner or Sunoco, Inc. an annual administrative fee, initially in the amount of $8.0 million, for the provision by Sunoco, Inc. of certain general and administrative services; . Sunoco, Inc.'s and its affiliates' agreement not to compete with us under certain circumstances; . our agreement to undertake to develop and construct or acquire an asset if requested by Sunoco, Inc.; . an indemnity by Sunoco, Inc. for certain environmental, toxic tort and other liabilities; . our obligation to indemnify Sunoco, Inc. and its affiliates for events and conditions associated with the operation of our assets that occur on or after the closing of the initial public offering and for environmental and toxic tort liabilities related to our assets to the extent Sunoco, Inc. is not required to indemnify us; and . our option to purchase certain pipeline, terminalling, and storage assets retained by Sunoco, Inc. or its affiliates. Reimbursement of Expenses and Completion of Certain Projects by Sunoco, Inc. The omnibus agreement requires Sunoco R&M to: . reimburse us for any operating expenses and capital expenditures in excess of $8.0 million per year in each year from 2002 to 2006 that are made to comply with the DOT's pipeline integrity management rule, subject to a maximum aggregate reimbursement of $15.0 million over this five-year period; . complete, at its expense, certain tank maintenance and inspection projects currently in progress or expected to be completed at the Darby Creek Tank Farm within one year; and . reimburse us for up to $10.0 million of expenditures required at the Marcus Hook Tank Farm and the Darby Creek Tank Farm to maintain compliance with existing industry standards and regulatory requirements, including: . cathodic protection upgrades at these facilities; . raising tank farm pipelines above ground level at these facilities; and . repairing or demolishing two riveted tanks at the Marcus Hook Tank Farm. 87

We are reflecting outlays for these programs as operating expenses or capital expenditures, as appropriate. Capital expenditures are depreciated over their useful lives. Reimbursements by Sunoco R&M are reflected as capital contributions. Payment of General and Administrative Services Fee In addition, under the omnibus agreement we are paying Sunoco, Inc. or our general partner an annual administrative fee, initially in the amount of $8.0 million, for the provision of various general and administrative services for our benefit. The contract provides that this amount may be increased in the second and third years following the initial public offering by the lesser of 2.5% or the consumer price index for the applicable year. Our general partner, with the approval and consent of its conflict committee, will also have the right to agree to further increases in connection with expansions of our operations through the acquisition or construction of new assets or businesses. After this three-year period, our general partner will determine the general and administrative expenses that will be allocated to us. Please read "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Conditions and Results of Operations--Risks Inherent our Business." The $8.0 million fee includes expenses incurred by Sunoco, Inc. and its affiliates to perform centralized corporate functions, such as legal, accounting, treasury, engineering, information technology, insurance, and other corporate services, including the administration of employee benefit plans. The fee does not include salaries of pipeline and terminal personnel or other employees of our general partner, including senior executives, or the cost of their employee benefits, such as 401(k), pension, and health insurance benefits. We are also reimbursing Sunoco, Inc. and its affiliates for direct expenses they incur on our behalf. In addition, we anticipate incurring approximately $4.0 million of additional general and administrative costs, including costs relating to operating as a separate publicly held entity, such as costs for tax return preparation, annual and quarterly reports to unitholders, and investor relations and registrar and transfer agent fees, as well as incremental insurance costs. Development or Acquisition of an Asset By Us The omnibus agreement also contains a provision pursuant to which Sunoco, Inc. may at any time propose to us that we undertake a project to develop and construct or acquire an asset. If our general partner determines in its good faith judgment, with the concurrence of its conflicts committee, that the project, including the terms on which Sunoco, Inc. would agree to use such asset, will be beneficial on the whole to us and that proceeding with the project will not effectively preclude us from undertaking another project that will be more beneficial to us, we will be required to use commercially reasonable efforts to finance, develop, and construct or acquire the asset. Noncompetition Sunoco, Inc. and its affiliates have agreed, for so long as Sunoco, Inc. controls the general partner, not to engage in, whether by acquisition or otherwise, the business of purchasing crude oil at the wellhead or operating crude oil pipelines or terminals, refined products pipelines or terminals, or LPG terminals in the continental United States. This restriction does not apply to: . any business operated by Sunoco, Inc. or any of its subsidiaries at the closing of our initial public offering; . any logistics asset constructed by Sunoco, Inc. or any of its subsidiaries within a manufacturing or refining facility in connection with the operation of that facility; . any business that Sunoco, Inc. or any of its subsidiaries acquires or constructs that has a fair market value of less than $5.0 million; and . any business that Sunoco, Inc. or any of its subsidiaries acquires or constructs that has a fair market value of $5.0 million or more if we have been offered the opportunity to purchase the business for fair market value not later than six months after completion of such acquisition or construction, and we decline to do so with the concurrence of our conflicts committee. 88

In addition, the limitations on the ability of Sunoco, Inc. and its affiliates to compete with us will terminate upon a change of control of Sunoco, Inc. Options to Purchase Assets Retained by Sunoco, Inc. The omnibus agreement also contains the terms under which we have the options to purchase Sunoco, Inc.'s interests in Mid-Valley Pipeline Company, West Texas Gulf Pipeline Company, Mesa Pipeline and Inland Corporation, as well as the Icedale pipeline. Indemnification Under the omnibus agreement, Sunoco, Inc. has agreed to indemnify us for 30 years after the closing of our initial public offering against certain environmental and toxic tort liabilities associated with the operation of the assets and occurring before the closing date of our initial public offering. This indemnity obligation will be reduced by 10% per year beginning with the 22nd year after the closing of our initial public offering. We have agreed to indemnify Sunoco, Inc. and its affiliates for events and conditions associated with the operation of our assets that occur on or after the closing of our initial public offering and for environmental and toxic tort liabilities related to our assets to the extent Sunoco, Inc. is not required to indemnify us. Sunoco, Inc. has also agreed to indemnify us for liabilities relating to: . the assets contributed to us, other than environmental and toxic tort liabilities, that arise out of the operation of the assets prior to the closing of our initial public offering and that are asserted within ten years after the closing of our initial public offering; . certain defects in title to the assets contributed to us and failure to obtain certain consents and permits necessary to conduct our business that arise within ten years after the closing of our initial public offering; . legal actions currently pending against Sunoco, Inc. or its affiliates; and . events and conditions associated with any assets retained by Sunoco, Inc. or its affiliates. Pipelines and Terminals Storage and Throughput Agreement Concurrently with the closing of our initial public offering, we entered into a pipelines and terminals storage and throughput agreement with Sunoco R&M. Under that agreement, Sunoco R&M has agreed to pay us fees generally comparable to those charged by third parties to: . transport on our refined product pipelines or throughput in our 32 inland refined product terminals an amount of refined products that will produce at least $75.0 million of revenue in the first year, escalating at 1.67% per year for the next four years. In addition, Sunoco R&M will pay us to transport on our refined product pipelines an amount of refined products that will produce at least $54.3 million of revenue in the sixth year and at least $55.2 million of revenue in the seventh year. Sunoco R&M will pay the published tariffs on the pipelines and contractually agreed fees at the terminals; . receive and deliver at least 130,000 bpd of refined products per year at our Marcus Hook Tank Farm for five years. In the first year, we will receive a fee of $0.1627 per barrel for the first 130,000 bpd and $0.0813 per barrel for volumes in excess of 130,000 bpd. These fees will escalate at the rate of 1.67% per year; . store 975,734 barrels of LPG per year at our Inkster Terminal, which represents all of our LPG storage capacity at this facility. In the first year of this seven-year agreement, we will receive a fee of $2.04 per barrel of committed storage, a fee of $0.204 per barrel for receipts greater than 975,734 barrels per year and a fee of $0.204 per barrel for deliveries greater than 975,734 barrels per year. These fees will escalate at the rate of 1.875% per year; 89

. receive and deliver at least 290,000 bpd of crude oil or refined products per year at our Fort Mifflin Terminal Complex for seven years. In the first year, we will receive a fee of $0.1627 per barrel for the first 180,000 bpd and $0.0813 per barrel for volumes in excess of 180,000 bpd. These fees will escalate at the rate of 1.67% per year; and . transport or cause to be transported an aggregate of at least 140,000 bpd of crude oil per year on our Marysville to Toledo, Nederland to Longview, Cushing to Tulsa, Barnsdall to Tulsa, and Bad Creek to Tulsa crude oil pipelines at the published tariffs for a term of seven years.. If Sunoco R&M fails to meet its minimum obligations pursuant to the contract terms set forth above, it will be required to pay us in cash the amount of any shortfall, which may be applied as a credit in the following year after Sunoco R&M's minimum obligations are met. Sunoco R&M's obligations under this agreement may be permanently reduced or suspended if: . Sunoco R&M (1) shuts down or reconfigures one of its refineries (other than planned maintenance turnarounds) and (2) reasonably believes in good faith that such event will jeopardize its ability to satisfy its minimum revenue or throughput obligations. Sunoco R&M will be required to give at least six months' advance notice of any shut down or reconfiguration. Sunoco R&M will propose new minimum obligations that proportionally reduce the affected obligations. If we do not agree with this reduction, any change in Sunoco R&M's obligations will be determined by binding arbitration; or . Sunoco R&M (1) is prohibited from using MTBE in the gasoline it produces and (2) reasonably believes in good faith that such event will jeopardize its ability to satisfy its minimum revenue or throughput obligations. Sunoco R&M will be required to give at least 90 days advance notice of any planned prohibition on using MTBE in the gasoline it produces. Sunoco R&M will propose new minimum obligations that proportionally reduce its affected obligations. If we do not agree with this reduction, any change in Sunoco R&M's obligations will be determined by binding arbitration. Furthermore, if new laws or regulations are enacted that require us to make substantial and unanticipated capital expenditures at the Terminal Facilities, we will have the right to impose a monthly surcharge on Sunoco R&M for the use of the Terminal Facilities to cover the cost of complying with these laws or regulations, after we have made efforts to mitigate their effect. We and Sunoco R&M will negotiate in good faith to agree on the level of the monthly surcharge. If we are unable to agree, then we may terminate the agreement with respect to the affected asset. Sunoco R&M's obligations under this agreement may be temporarily suspended during the occurrence of an event that is outside the control of the parties that renders performance impossible with respect to an asset for at least 30 days. Sunoco R&M has agreed not to challenge, or to cause others to challenge or assist others in challenging, our tariff rates in effect during the term of the agreement. This agreement does not prevent other current or future shippers from challenging our tariff rates. At the end of the term of the agreement, Sunoco R&M will be free to challenge, or to cause others to challenge or assist others in challenging, our tariff rates in effect at that time. From time to time, Sunoco, Inc. may be presented with opportunities by third parties with respect to its refinery assets. These opportunities may include offers to purchase and joint venture propositions. Sunoco, Inc. is also continually considering changes to its refineries. Those changes may involve new facilities, reduction in certain operations or modifications of facilities or operations. Changes may be considered to meet market demands, to satisfy regulatory requirements or environmental and safety objectives, to improve operational efficiency or for other reasons. Sunoco, Inc. has advised us that although it continually considers the types of matters referred to above, it is not currently proceeding with any transaction or plan that it believes is likely to result in any reconfigurations or other operational changes in any of its refineries served by our assets that would have a material effect on Sunoco R&M's business relationship with us. Further, Sunoco, Inc. has also advised us that it is not considering a shutdown of any of its refineries served by our assets. Sunoco, Inc. is, however, actively managing its assets and operations, 90

and, therefore, changes of some nature, possibly material to its business relationship with us, are likely to occur at some point in the future. To the extent Sunoco R&M does not extend or renew the pipelines and terminals storage and throughput agreement, our financial condition and results of operations may be adversely affected. Our assets were constructed or purchased to service Sunoco R&M's refining and marketing supply chain and are well-situated to suit Sunoco R&M's needs. As a result, we would expect that even if this agreement is not renewed, Sunoco R&M would continue to use our pipelines and terminals. However, we cannot assure you that Sunoco R&M will continue to use our facilities or that we will be able to generate additional revenues from third parties. Sunoco R&M's obligations under this agreement will not terminate if Sunoco, Inc. and its affiliates no longer own the general partner. This agreement may be assigned by Sunoco R&M only with the consent of our conflicts committee. Other Agreements with Sunoco R&M and Sunoco, Inc. Under a 20-year lease agreement, Sunoco R&M will pay us $5.1 million in the first year to lease 58 miles of interrefinery pipelines between Sunoco R&M's Philadelphia and Marcus Hook refineries, escalating at 1.67% per year, for the next 19 years. Sunoco R&M has agreed to purchase from us at market-based rates particular grades of crude oil that our crude oil acquisition and marketing business purchases for delivery to pipelines in: Longview, Trent, Tye, and Colorado City, Texas; Haynesville, Louisiana; Marysville and Lewiston, Michigan; and Tulsa, Oklahoma. The initial term of these agreements is two months. At Marysville and Lewiston, Michigan, we exchange Michigan sweet and Michigan sour crude oil we own for domestic sweet crude oil supplied by Sunoco R&M at market-based rates. These agreements will automatically renew on a monthly basis unless terminated by either party on 30 days' written notice. Sunoco R&M has indicated that it has no current intention to terminate these agreements. We entered into a license agreement with Sunoco, Inc. and certain of its affiliates, including our general partner, pursuant to which we granted to our general partner a license to our intellectual property so that our general partner can manage our operations and create intellectual property using our intellectual property. Our general partner will assign to us the new intellectual property it creates in operating our business. Our general partner also licensed to us certain of its own intellectual property for use in the conduct of our business and we licensed to our general partner certain of our intellectual property for use in the conduct of its business. The license agreement also granted to us a license to use the trademarks, trade names, and service marks of Sunoco, Inc. in the conduct of our business. We entered into a treasury services agreement with Sunoco, Inc. pursuant to which we, among other things, participate in Sunoco, Inc.'s centralized cash management program. Under this program, all of our cash receipts and cash disbursements will be processed, together with those of Sunoco, Inc. and its other subsidiaries, through Sunoco, Inc.'s cash accounts with a corresponding credit or charge to an intercompany account. The intercompany balances will be settled periodically, but no less frequently than at the end of each month. Amounts due from Sunoco, Inc. and its subsidiaries earn interest at a rate equal to the average rate of our third-party money market investments, while amounts due to Sunoco, Inc. and its subsidiaries bear interest at a rate equal to the interest rate provided in our revolving credit facility. 91

In consideration of the covenants, conditions and agreements contained herein, the parties hereto hereby agree as follows: ARTICLE I DEFINITIONS Section 1.1 Definitions. The following definitions shall be for all purposes, unless otherwise clearly indicated to the contrary, applied to the terms used in this Agreement. "Acquisition" means any transaction in which any Group Member acquires (through an asset acquisition, merger, stock acquisition or other form of investment) control over all or a portion of the assets, properties or business of another Person for the purpose of increasing the operating capacity or revenues of the Partnership Group from the operating capacity or revenues of the Partnership Group existing immediately prior to such transaction. "Additional Book Basis" means the portion of any remaining Carrying Value of an Adjusted Property that is attributable to positive adjustments made to such Carrying Value as a result of Book-Up Events. For purposes of determining the extent that Carrying Value constitutes Additional Book Basis: (i) Any negative adjustment made to the Carrying Value of an Adjusted Property as a result of either a Book-Down Event or a Book-Up Event shall first be deemed to offset or decrease that portion of the Carrying Value of such Adjusted Property that is attributable to any prior positive adjustments made thereto pursuant to a Book-Up Event or Book-Down Event. (ii) If Carrying Value that constitutes Additional Book Basis is reduced as a result of a Book-Down Event and the Carrying Value of other property is increased as a result of such Book-Down Event, an allocable portion of any such increase in Carrying Value shall be treated as Additional Book Basis; provided that the amount treated as Additional Book Basis pursuant hereto as a result of such Book-Down Event shall not exceed the amount by which the Aggregate Remaining Net Positive Adjustments after such Book-Down Event exceeds the remaining Additional Book Basis attributable to all of the Partnership's Adjusted Property after such Book-Down Event (determined without regard to the application of this clause (ii) to such Book-Down Event). SUNOCO LOGISTICS PARTNERS L.P. FIRST AMENDED AND RESTATED AGREEMENT OF LIMITED PARTNERSHIP

"Additional Book Basis Derivative Items" means any Book Basis Derivative Items that are computed with reference to Additional Book Basis. To the extent that the Additional Book Basis attributable to all of the Partnership's Adjusted Property as of the beginning of any taxable period exceeds the Aggregate Remaining Net Positive Adjustments as of the beginning of such period (the "Excess Additional Book Basis"), the Additional Book Basis Derivative Items for such period shall be reduced by the amount that bears the same ratio to the amount of Additional Book Basis Derivative Items determined without regard to this sentence as the Excess Additional Book Basis bears to the Additional Book Basis as of the beginning of such period. "Additional Limited Partner" means a Person admitted to the Partnership as a Limited Partner pursuant to Section 10.4 and who is shown as such on the books and records of the Partnership. "Adjusted Capital Account" means the Capital Account maintained for each Partner as of the end of each fiscal year of the Partnership, (a) increased by any amounts that such Partner is obligated to restore under the standards set by Treasury Regulation Section 1.704-1(b)(2)(ii)(c) (or is deemed obligated to restore under Treasury Regulation Sections 1.704-2(g) and 1.704-2(i)(5)) and (b) decreased by (i) the amount of all losses and deductions that, as of the end of such fiscal year, are reasonably expected to be allocated to such Partner in subsequent years under Sections 704(e)(2) and 706(d) of the Code and Treasury Regulation Section 1.751-1(b)(2)(ii), and (ii) the amount of all distributions that, as of the end of such fiscal year, are reasonably expected to be made to such Partner in subsequent years in accordance with the terms of this Agreement or otherwise to the extent they exceed offsetting increases to such Partner's Capital Account that are reasonably expected to occur during (or prior to) the year in which such distributions are reasonably expected to be made (other than increases as a result of a minimum gain chargeback pursuant to Section 6.1(d)(i) or 6.1(d)(ii)). The foregoing definition of Adjusted Capital Account is intended to comply with the provisions of Treasury Regulation Section 1.704-1(b)(2)(ii)(d) and shall be interpreted consistently therewith. The "Adjusted Capital Account" of a Partner in respect of a General Partner Interest, a Common Unit, a Subordinated Unit or an Incentive Distribution Right or any other specified interest in the Partnership shall be the amount which such Adjusted Capital Account would be if such General Partner Interest, Common Unit, Subordinated Unit, Incentive Distribution Right or other interest in the Partnership were the only interest in the Partnership held by such Partner from and after the date on which such General Partner Interest, Common Unit, Subordinated Unit, Incentive Distribution Right or other interest was first issued. "Adjusted Operating Surplus" means, with respect to any period, Operating Surplus generated during such period (a) less (i) any net increase in Working Capital Borrowings with respect to such period and (ii) any net reduction in cash reserves for Operating Expenditures with respect to such period not relating to an Operating Expenditure made with respect to such period, and (b) plus (i) any net decrease in Working Capital Borrowings with respect to such period, and (ii) any net increase in cash reserves for Operating Expenditures with respect to such period required by any debt instrument for the repayment of principal, interest or premium.

(b) The foregoing power of attorney is hereby declared to be irrevocable and a power coupled with an interest, and it shall survive and, to the maximum extent permitted by law, not be affected by the subsequent death, incompetency, disability, incapacity, dissolution, bankruptcy or termination of any Limited Partner or Assignee and the transfer of all or any portion of such Limited Partner's or Assignee's Partnership Interest and shall extend to such Limited Partner's or Assignee's heirs, successors, assigns and personal representatives. Each such Limited Partner or Assignee hereby agrees to be bound by any representation made by the General Partner or the Liquidator acting in good faith pursuant to such power of attorney; and each such Limited Partner or Assignee, to the maximum extent permitted by law, hereby waives any and all defenses that may be available to contest, negate or disaffirm the action of the General Partner or the Liquidator taken in good faith under such power of attorney. Each Limited Partner or Assignee shall execute and deliver to the General Partner or the Liquidator, within 15 days after receipt of the request therefor, such further designation, powers of attorney and other instruments as the General Partner or the Liquidator deems necessary to effectuate this Agreement and the purposes of the Partnership. Section 2.7 Term. The term of the Partnership commenced upon the filing of the Certificate of Limited Partnership in accordance with the Delaware Act and shall continue in existence until the dissolution of the Partnership in accordance with the provisions of Article XII. The existence of the Partnership as a separate legal entity shall continue until the cancellation of the Certificate of Limited Partnership as provided in the Delaware Act. Section 2.8 Title to Partnership Assets. Title to Partnership assets, whether real, personal or mixed and whether tangible or intangible, shall be deemed to be owned by the Partnership as an entity, and no Partner or Assignee, individually or collectively, shall have any ownership interest in such Partnership assets or any portion thereof. Title to any or all of the Partnership assets may be held in the name 23

of the Partnership, the General Partner, one or more of its Affiliates or one or more nominees, as the General Partner may determine. The General Partner hereby declares and warrants that any Partnership assets for which record title is held in the name of the General Partner or one or more of its Affiliates or one or more nominees shall be held by the General Partner or such Affiliate or nominee for the use and benefit of the Partnership in accordance with the provisions of this Agreement; provided, however, that the General Partner shall use reasonable efforts to cause record title to such assets (other than those assets in respect of which the General Partner determines that the expense and difficulty of conveyancing makes transfer of record title to the Partnership impracticable) to be vested in the Partnership as soon as reasonably practicable; provided, further, that, prior to the withdrawal or removal of the General Partner or as soon thereafter as practicable, the General Partner shall use reasonable efforts to effect the transfer of record title to the Partnership and, prior to any such transfer, will provide for the use of such assets in a manner satisfactory to the General Partner. All Partnership assets shall be recorded as the property of the Partnership in its books and records, irrespective of the name in which record title to such Partnership assets is held. ARTICLE III RIGHTS OF LIMITED PARTNERS Section 3.1 Limitation of Liability. The Limited Partners and the Assignees shall have no liability under this Agreement except as expressly provided in this Agreement or the Delaware Act. Section 3.2 Management of Business. No Limited Partner or Assignee, in its capacity as such, shall participate in the operation, management or control (within the meaning of the Delaware Act) of the Partnership's business, transact any business in the Partnership's name or have the power to sign documents for or otherwise bind the Partnership. Any action taken by any Affiliate of the General Partner or any officer, director, employee, manager, member, general partner, agent or trustee of the General Partner or any of its Affiliates, or any officer, director, employee, manager, member, general partner, agent or trustee of a Group Member, in its capacity as such, shall not be deemed to be participation in the control of the business of the Partnership by a limited partner of the Partnership (within the meaning of Section 17-303(a) of the Delaware Act) and shall not affect, impair or eliminate the limitations on the liability of the Limited Partners or Assignees under this Agreement. Section 3.3 Outside Activities of the Limited Partners. Subject to the provisions of Section 7.5 and the Omnibus Agreement, which shall continue to be applicable to the Persons referred to therein, regardless of whether such Persons shall also be Limited Partners or Assignees, any Limited Partner or Assignee shall be entitled to and may have business interests and engage in business activities in addition to those relating to the Partnership, including business interests and activities in direct competition with the Partnership Group. Neither the Partnership nor any of the other Partners or Assignees shall have 24

any rights by virtue of this Agreement in any business ventures of any Limited Partner or Assignee. Section 3.4 Rights of Limited Partners. (a) In addition to other rights provided by this Agreement or by applicable law, and except as limited by Section 3.4(b), each Limited Partner shall have the right, for a purpose reasonably related to such Limited Partner's interest as a limited partner in the Partnership, upon reasonable written demand and at such Limited Partner's own expense: (i) to obtain true and full information regarding the status of the business and financial condition of the Partnership; (ii) promptly after becoming available, to obtain a copy of the Partnership's federal, state and local income tax returns for each year; (iii) to have furnished to him a current list of the name and last known business, residence or mailing address of each Partner; (iv) to have furnished to him a copy of this Agreement and the Certificate of Limited Partnership and all amendments thereto, together with a copy of the executed copies of all powers of attorney pursuant to which this Agreement, the Certificate of Limited Partnership and all amendments thereto have been executed; (v) to obtain true and full information regarding the amount of cash and a description and statement of the Net Agreed Value of any other Capital Contribution by each Partner and which each Partner has agreed to contribute in the future, and the date on which each became a Partner; and (vi) to obtain such other information regarding the affairs of the Partnership as is just and reasonable. (b) The General Partner may keep confidential from the Limited Partners and Assignees, for such period of time as the General Partner deems reasonable, (i) any information that the General Partner reasonably believes to be in the nature of trade secrets or (ii) other information the disclosure of which the General Partner in good faith believes (A) is not in the best interests of the Partnership Group, (B) could damage the Partnership Group or (C) that any Group Member is required by law or by agreement with any third party to keep confidential (other than agreements with Affiliates of the Partnership the primary purpose of which is to circumvent the obligations set forth in this Section 3.4). 25

ARTICLE IV CERTIFICATES; RECORD HOLDERS; TRANSFER OF PARTNERSHIP INTERESTS; REDEMPTION OF PARTNERSHIP INTERESTS Section 4.1 Certificates. Upon the Partnership's issuance of Common Units or Subordinated Units to any Person, the Partnership shall issue one or more Certificates in the name of such Person evidencing the number of such Units being so issued. In addition, (a) upon the General Partner's request, the Partnership shall issue to it one or more Certificates in the name of the General Partner evidencing its interests in the Partnership and (b) upon the request of any Person owning Incentive Distribution Rights or any other Partnership Securities other than Common Units or Subordinated Units, the Partnership shall issue to such Person one or more certificates evidencing such Incentive Distribution Rights or other Partnership Securities other than Common Units or Subordinated Units. Certificates shall be executed on behalf of the Partnership by the Chairman of the Board, President or any Executive Vice President or Vice President and the Secretary or any Assistant Secretary of the General Partner. No Common Unit Certificate shall be valid for any purpose until it has been countersigned by the Transfer Agent; provided, however, that if the General Partner elects to issue Common Units in global form, the Common Unit Certificates shall be valid upon receipt of a certificate from the Transfer Agent certifying that the Common Units have been duly registered in accordance with the directions of the Partnership and the Underwriters. Subject to the requirements of Section 6.7(b), the Partners holding Certificates evidencing Subordinated Units may exchange such Certificates for Certificates evidencing Common Units on or after the date on which such Subordinated Units are converted into Common Units pursuant to the terms of Section 5.8. Section 4.2 Mutilated, Destroyed, Lost or Stolen Certificates. (a) If any mutilated Certificate is surrendered to the Transfer Agent, the appropriate officers of the General Partner on behalf of the Partnership shall execute, and the Transfer Agent shall countersign and deliver in exchange therefor, a new Certificate evidencing the same number and type of Partnership Securities as the Certificate so surrendered. (b) The appropriate officers of the General Partner on behalf of the Partnership shall execute and deliver, and the Transfer Agent shall countersign a new Certificate in place of any Certificate previously issued if the Record Holder of the Certificate: (i) makes proof by affidavit, in form and substance satisfactory to the Partnership, that a previously issued Certificate has been lost, destroyed or stolen; (ii) requests the issuance of a new Certificate before the Partnership has notice that the Certificate has been acquired by a purchaser for value in good faith and without notice of an adverse claim; (iii) if requested by the Partnership, delivers to the Partnership a bond, in form and substance satisfactory to the Partnership, with surety or sureties and with fixed or open penalty as the Partnership may reasonably direct, in its sole discretion, to indemnify 26

the Partnership, the Partners, the General Partner and the Transfer Agent against any claim that may be made on account of the alleged loss, destruction or theft of the Certificate; and (iv) satisfies any other reasonable requirements imposed by the Partnership. If a Limited Partner or Assignee fails to notify the Partnership within a reasonable time after he has notice of the loss, destruction or theft of a Certificate, and a transfer of the Limited Partner Interests represented by the Certificate is registered before the Partnership, the General Partner or the Transfer Agent receives such notification, the Limited Partner or Assignee shall be precluded from making any claim against the Partnership, the General Partner or the Transfer Agent for such transfer or for a new Certificate. (c) As a condition to the issuance of any new Certificate under this Section 4.2, the Partnership may require the payment of a sum sufficient to cover any tax or other governmental charge that may be imposed in relation thereto and any other expenses (including the fees and expenses of the Transfer Agent) reasonably connected therewith. Section 4.3 Record Holders. The Partnership shall be entitled to recognize the Record Holder as the Partner or Assignee with respect to any Partnership Interest and, accordingly, shall not be bound to recognize any equitable or other claim to or interest in such Partnership Interest on the part of any other Person, regardless of whether the Partnership shall have actual or other notice thereof, except as otherwise provided by law or any applicable rule, regulation, guideline or requirement of any National Securities Exchange on which such Partnership Interests are listed for trading. Without limiting the foregoing, when a Person (such as a broker, dealer, bank, trust company or clearing corporation or an agent of any of the foregoing) is acting as nominee, agent or in some other representative capacity for another Person in acquiring and/or holding Partnership Interests, as between the Partnership on the one hand, and such other Persons on the other, such representative Person (a) shall be the Partner or Assignee (as the case may be) of record and beneficially, (b) must execute and deliver a Transfer Application and (c) shall be bound by this Agreement and shall have the rights and obligations of a Partner or Assignee (as the case may be) hereunder and as, and to the extent, provided for herein. Section 4.4 Transfer Generally. (a) The term "transfer," when used in this Agreement with respect to a Partnership Interest, shall be deemed to refer to a transaction by which a General Partner assigns its General Partner Interest to another Person who becomes a General Partner, by which the holder of a Limited Partner Interest assigns such Limited Partner Interest to another Person who is or becomes a Limited Partner or an Assignee, and includes a sale, assignment, gift, pledge, encumbrance, hypothecation, mortgage, exchange or any other disposition by law or otherwise. (b) No Partnership Interest shall be transferred, in whole or in part, except in accordance with the terms and conditions set forth in this Article IV. Any transfer or purported transfer of a Partnership Interest not made in accordance with this Article IV shall be null and void. 27

(c) Nothing contained in this Agreement shall be construed to prevent a disposition by any member of the General Partner of any or all of the membership interests of the General Partner. Section 4.5 Registration and Transfer of Limited Partner Interests. (a) The Partnership shall keep or cause to be kept on behalf of the Partnership a register in which, subject to such reasonable regulations as it may prescribe and subject to the provisions of Section 4.5(b), the Partnership will provide for the registration and transfer of Limited Partner Interests. The Transfer Agent is hereby appointed registrar and transfer agent for the purpose of registering Common Units and transfers of such Common Units as herein provided. The Partnership shall not recognize transfers of Certificates evidencing Limited Partner Interests unless such transfers are effected in the manner described in this Section 4.5. Upon surrender of a Certificate for registration of transfer of any Limited Partner Interests evidenced by a Certificate, and subject to the provisions of Section 4.5(b), the appropriate officers of the General Partner on behalf of the Partnership shall execute and deliver, and in the case of Common Units, the Transfer Agent shall countersign and deliver, in the name of the holder or the designated transferee or transferees, as required pursuant to the holder's instructions, one or more new Certificates evidencing the same aggregate number and type of Limited Partner Interests as was evidenced by the Certificate so surrendered. (b) Except as otherwise provided in Section 4.9, the Partnership shall not recognize any transfer of Limited Partner Interests until the Certificates evidencing such Limited Partner Interests are surrendered for registration of transfer and such Certificates are accompanied by a Transfer Application duly executed by the transferee (or the transferee's attorney-in-fact duly authorized in writing). No charge shall be imposed by the Partnership for such transfer; provided, that as a condition to the issuance of any new Certificate under this Section 4.5, the Partnership may require the payment of a sum sufficient to cover any tax or other governmental charge that may be imposed with respect thereto. (c) Limited Partner Interests may be transferred only in the manner described in this Section 4.5. The transfer of any Limited Partner Interests and the admission of any new Limited Partner shall not constitute an amendment to this Agreement. (d) Until admitted as a Substituted Limited Partner pursuant to Section 10.2, the Record Holder of a Limited Partner Interest shall be an Assignee in respect of such Limited Partner Interest. Limited Partners may include custodians, nominees or any other individual or entity in its own or any representative capacity. (e) A transferee of a Limited Partner Interest who has completed and delivered a Transfer Application shall be deemed to have (i) requested admission as a Substituted Limited Partner, (ii) agreed to comply with and be bound by and to have executed this Agreement, (iii) represented and warranted that such transferee has the right, power and authority and, if an individual, the capacity to enter into this Agreement, (iv) granted the powers of attorney set forth in this Agreement and (v) given the consents and approvals and made the waivers contained in this Agreement. 28

(f) The General Partner and its Affiliates shall have the right at any time to transfer their Subordinated Units and Common Units (whether issued upon conversion of the Subordinated Units or otherwise) to one or more Persons. Section 4.6 Transfer of the General Partner's General Partner Interest. (a) Subject to Section 4.6(c) below, prior to December 31, 2011, the General Partner shall not transfer all or any part of its General Partner Interest to a Person unless such transfer (i) has been approved by the prior written consent or vote of the holders of at least a majority of the Outstanding Common Units (excluding Common Units held by the General Partner and its Affiliates) or (ii) is of all, but not less than all, of its General Partner Interest to (A) an Affiliate of the General Partner (other than an individual) or (B) another Person (other than an individual) in connection with the merger or consolidation of the General Partner with or into another Person (other than an individual) or the transfer by the General Partner of all or substantially all of its assets to another Person (other than an individual). (b) Subject to Section 4.6(c) below, on or after December 31, 2011, the General Partner may transfer all or any of its General Partner Interest without Unitholder approval. (c) Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, no transfer by the General Partner of all or any part of its General Partner Interest to another Person shall be permitted unless (i) the transferee agrees to assume the rights and duties of the General Partner under this Agreement and to be bound by the provisions of this Agreement, (ii) the Partnership receives an Opinion of Counsel that such transfer would not result in the loss of limited liability of any Limited Partner or of any limited partner of the Operating Partnership or cause the Partnership or the Operating Partnership to be treated as an association taxable as a corporation or otherwise to be taxed as an entity for federal income tax purposes (to the extent not already so treated or taxed) and (iii) such transferee also agrees to purchase all (or the appropriate portion thereof, if applicable) of the partnership or membership interest of the General Partner as the general partner or managing member, if any, of each other Group Member. In the case of a transfer pursuant to and in compliance with this Section 4.6, the transferee or successor (as the case may be) shall, subject to compliance with the terms of Section 10.3, be admitted to the Partnership as the General Partner immediately prior to the transfer of the Partnership Interest, and the business of the Partnership shall continue without dissolution. Section 4.7 Transfer of Incentive Distribution Rights. Prior to December 31, 2011, a holder of Incentive Distribution Rights may transfer any or all of the Incentive Distribution Rights held by such holder without any consent of the Unitholders (a) to an Affiliate of such holder (other than an individual) or (b) to another Person (other than an individual) in connection with (i) the merger or consolidation of such holder of Incentive Distribution Rights with or into such other Person or (ii) the transfer by such holder of all or substantially all of its assets to such other Person or (iii) the sale of all or substantially all of the equity interests of such holder to such other Person. Any other transfer of the Incentive Distribution Rights prior to December 31, 2011, shall require the prior approval of holders of at least a majority of the Outstanding Common Units (excluding Common Units held by the General Partner and its Affiliates). On or after December 31, 2011, the General Partner or any 29

other holder of Incentive Distribution Rights may transfer any or all of its Incentive Distribution Rights without Unitholder approval. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, no transfer of Incentive Distribution Rights to another Person shall be permitted unless the transferee agrees to be bound by the provisions of this Agreement. Section 4.8 Restrictions on Transfers. (a) Except as provided in Section 4.8(d) below, but notwithstanding the other provisions of this Article IV, no transfer of any Partnership Interests shall be made if such transfer would (i) violate the then applicable federal or state securities laws or rules and regulations of the Commission, any state securities commission or any other governmental authority with jurisdiction over such transfer, (ii) terminate the existence or qualification of the Partnership or the Operating Partnership under the laws of the jurisdiction of its formation, or (iii) cause the Partnership or the Operating Partnership to be treated as an association taxable as a corporation or otherwise to be taxed as an entity for federal income tax purposes (to the extent not already so treated or taxed). (b) The General Partner may impose restrictions on the transfer of Partnership Interests if a subsequent Opinion of Counsel determines that such restrictions are necessary to avoid a significant risk of the Partnership or the Operating Partnership becoming taxable as a corporation or otherwise to be taxed as an entity for federal income tax purposes. The restrictions may be imposed by making such amendments to this Agreement as the General Partner may determine to be necessary or appropriate to impose such restrictions; provided, however, that any amendment that the General Partner believes, in the exercise of its reasonable discretion, could result in the delisting or suspension of trading of any class of Limited Partner Interests on the principal National Securities Exchange on which such class of Limited Partner Interests is then traded must be approved, prior to such amendment being effected, by the holders of at least a majority of the Outstanding Limited Partner Interests of such class. (c) The transfer of a Subordinated Unit that has converted into a Common Unit shall be subject to the restrictions imposed by Section 6.7(b). (d) Nothing contained in this Article IV, or elsewhere in this Agreement, shall preclude the settlement of any transactions involving Partnership Interests entered into through the facilities of any National Securities Exchange on which such Partnership Interests are listed for trading. Section 4.9 Citizenship Certificates; Non-citizen Assignees. (a) If any Group Member is or becomes subject to any federal, state or local law or regulation that, in the reasonable determination of the General Partner, creates a substantial risk of cancellation or forfeiture of any property in which the Group Member has an interest based on the nationality, citizenship or other related status of a Limited Partner or Assignee, the General Partner may request any Limited Partner or Assignee to furnish to the General Partner, within 30 days after receipt of such request, an executed Citizenship Certification or such other information concerning his nationality, citizenship or other related status (or, if the Limited Partner or Assignee is a nominee holding for the account of another Person, the nationality, 30

citizenship or other related status of such Person) as the General Partner may request. If a Limited Partner or Assignee fails to furnish to the General Partner within the aforementioned 30-day period such Citizenship Certification or other requested information or if upon receipt of such Citizenship Certification or other requested information the General Partner determines, with the advice of counsel, that a Limited Partner or Assignee is not an Eligible Citizen, the Partnership Interests owned by such Limited Partner or Assignee shall be subject to redemption in accordance with the provisions of Section 4.10. In addition, the General Partner may require that the status of any such Partner or Assignee be changed to that of a Non-citizen Assignee and, thereupon, the General Partner shall be substituted for such Non-citizen Assignee as the Limited Partner in respect of his Limited Partner Interests. (b) The General Partner shall, in exercising voting rights in respect of Limited Partner Interests held by it on behalf of Non-citizen Assignees, distribute the votes in the same ratios as the votes of Partners (including without limitation the General Partner) in respect of Limited Partner Interests other than those of Non-citizen Assignees are cast, either for, against or abstaining as to the matter. (c) Upon dissolution of the Partnership, a Non-citizen Assignee shall have no right to receive a distribution in kind pursuant to Section 12.4 but shall be entitled to the cash equivalent thereof, and the Partnership shall provide cash in exchange for an assignment of the Non-citizen Assignee's share of the distribution in kind. Such payment and assignment shall be treated for Partnership purposes as a purchase by the Partnership from the Non-citizen Assignee of his Limited Partner Interest (representing his right to receive his share of such distribution in kind). (d) At any time after he can and does certify that he has become an Eligible Citizen, a Non-citizen Assignee may, upon application to the General Partner, request admission as a Substituted Limited Partner with respect to any Limited Partner Interests of such Non-citizen Assignee not redeemed pursuant to Section 4.10, and upon his admission pursuant to Section 10.2, the General Partner shall cease to be deemed to be the Limited Partner in respect of the Non-citizen Assignee's Limited Partner Interests. Section 4.10 Redemption of Partnership Interests of Non-citizen Assignees. (a) If at any time a Limited Partner or Assignee fails to furnish a Citizenship Certification or other information requested within the 30-day period specified in Section 4.9(a), or if upon receipt of such Citizenship Certification or other information the General Partner determines, with the advice of counsel, that a Limited Partner or Assignee is not an Eligible Citizen, the Partnership may, unless the Limited Partner or Assignee establishes to the satisfaction of the General Partner that such Limited Partner or Assignee is an Eligible Citizen or has transferred his Partnership Interests to a Person who is an Eligible Citizen and who furnishes a Citizenship Certification to the General Partner prior to the date fixed for redemption as provided below, redeem the Partnership Interest of such Limited Partner or Assignee as follows: (i) The General Partner shall, not later than the 30th day before the date fixed for redemption, give notice of redemption to the Limited Partner or Assignee, at his last address designated on the records of the Partnership or the Transfer Agent, by registered or certified mail, postage prepaid. The notice shall be deemed to have been given when 31

so mailed. The notice shall specify the Redeemable Interests, the date fixed for redemption, the place of payment, that payment of the redemption price will be made upon surrender of the Certificate evidencing the Redeemable Interests and that on and after the date fixed for redemption no further allocations or distributions to which the Limited Partner or Assignee would otherwise be entitled in respect of the Redeemable Interests will accrue or be made. (ii) The aggregate redemption price for Redeemable Interests shall be an amount equal to the Current Market Price (the date of determination of which shall be the date fixed for redemption) of Limited Partner Interests of the class to be so redeemed multiplied by the number of Limited Partner Interests of each such class included among the Redeemable Interests. The redemption price shall be paid, in the discretion of the General Partner, in cash or by delivery of a promissory note of the Partnership in the principal amount of the redemption price, bearing interest at the rate of 10% annually and payable in three equal annual installments of principal together with accrued interest, commencing one year after the redemption date. (iii) Upon surrender by or on behalf of the Limited Partner or Assignee, at the place specified in the notice of redemption, of the Certificate evidencing the Redeemable Interests, duly endorsed in blank or accompanied by an assignment duly executed in blank, the Limited Partner or Assignee or his duly authorized representative shall be entitled to receive the payment therefor. (iv) After the redemption date, Redeemable Interests shall no longer constitute issued and Outstanding Limited Partner Interests. (b) The provisions of this Section 4.10 shall also be applicable to Limited Partner Interests held by a Limited Partner or Assignee as nominee of a Person determined to be other than an Eligible Citizen. (c) Nothing in this Section 4.10 shall prevent the recipient of a notice of redemption from transferring his Limited Partner Interest before the redemption date if such transfer is otherwise permitted under this Agreement. Upon receipt of notice of such a transfer, the General Partner shall withdraw the notice of redemption, provided the transferee of such Limited Partner Interest certifies to the satisfaction of the General Partner in a Citizenship Certification delivered in connection with the Transfer Application that he is an Eligible Citizen. If the transferee fails to make such certification, such redemption shall be effected from the transferee on the original redemption date. ARTICLE V CAPITAL CONTRIBUTIONS AND ISSUANCE OF PARTNERSHIP INTERESTS Section 5.1 Organizational Contributions.

Except as set forth in the immediately preceding sentence and Article XII, the General Partner shall not be obligated to make any additional Capital Contributions to the Partnership. (c) Any payment made to the Partnership Group by the General Partner or its Affiliates pursuant to Article III or V of the Omnibus Agreement or payments made pursuant to Section 5.2, 5.4 or 5.5 of the Omnibus Agreement shall be treated for purposes of this Agreement as a Capital Contribution by the General Partner to the Partnership. Section 5.3 Contributions by Initial Limited Partners and Distributions to the General Partner. (a) On the Closing Date and pursuant to the Underwriting Agreement, each Underwriter shall contribute to the Partnership cash in an amount equal to the Issue Price per Initial Common Unit, multiplied by the number of Common Units specified in the Underwriting Agreement to be purchased by such Underwriter at the Closing Date. In exchange for such Capital Contributions by the Underwriters, the Partnership shall issue Common Units to each Underwriter on whose behalf such Capital Contribution is made in an amount equal to the 33

quotient obtained by dividing (i) the cash contribution to the Partnership by or on behalf of such Underwriter by (ii) the Issue Price per Initial Common Unit.

(c) Upon the exercise of the Over-Allotment Option and pursuant to the Underwriting Agreement, each Underwriter shall contribute to the Partnership cash in an amount equal to the Issue Price per Initial Common Unit, multiplied by the number of Common Units specified in the Underwriting Agreement to be purchased by such Underwriter at the Option Closing Date. In exchange for such Capital Contributions by the Underwriters, the Partnership shall issue Common Units to each Underwriter on whose behalf such Capital Contribution is made in an amount equal to the quotient obtained by dividing (i) the cash contributions to the Partnership by or on behalf of such Underwriter by (ii) the Issue Price per Initial Common Unit.

Except to the extent expressly provided in this Agreement, no Partner or Assignee shall have priority over any other Partner or Assignee either as to the return of Capital Contributions or as to profits, losses or distributions. Any such return shall be a compromise to which all Partners and Assignees agree within the meaning of Section 17-502(b) of the Delaware Act. Section 5.5 Capital Accounts. (a) The Partnership shall maintain for each Partner (or a beneficial owner of Partnership Interests held by a nominee in any case in which the nominee has furnished the identity of such owner to the Partnership in accordance with Section 6031(c) of the Code or any other method acceptable to the General Partner in its sole discretion) owning a Partnership Interest a separate Capital Account with respect to such Partnership Interest in accordance with the rules of Treasury Regulation Section 1.704-1(b)(2)(iv). Such Capital Account shall be increased by (i) the amount of all Capital Contributions made to the Partnership with respect to 34

(b) For purposes of computing the amount of any item of income, gain, loss or deduction which is to be allocated pursuant to Article VI and is to be reflected in the Partners' Capital Accounts, the determination, recognition and classification of any such item shall be the same as its determination, recognition and classification for federal income tax purposes (including, without limitation, any method of depreciation, cost recovery or amortization used for that purpose), provided, that: (i) Solely for purposes of this Section 5.5, the Partnership shall be treated as owning directly its proportionate share (as determined by the General Partner based upon the provisions of the Operating Partnership Agreement) of all property owned by the Operating Partnership or any other Subsidiary that is classified as a partnership for federal income tax purposes. (ii) All fees and other expenses incurred by the Partnership to promote the sale of (or to sell) a Partnership Interest that can neither be deducted nor amortized under Section 709 of the Code, if any, shall, for purposes of Capital Account maintenance, be treated as an item of deduction at the time such fees and other expenses are incurred and shall be allocated among the Partners pursuant to Section 6.1. (iii) Except as otherwise provided in Treasury Regulation Section 1.704-1(b)(2)(iv)(m), the computation of all items of income, gain, loss and deduction shall be made without regard to any election under Section 754 of the Code which may be made by the Partnership and, as to those items described in Section 705(a)(1)(B) or 705(a)(2)(B) of the Code, without regard to the fact that such items are not includable in gross income or are neither currently deductible nor capitalized for federal income tax purposes. To the extent an adjustment to the adjusted tax basis of any Partnership asset pursuant to Section 734(b) or 743(b) of the Code is required, pursuant to Treasury Regulation Section 1.704-1(b)(2)(iv)(m), to be taken into account in determining Capital Accounts, the amount of such adjustment in the Capital Accounts shall be treated as an item of gain or loss. (iv) Any income, gain or loss attributable to the taxable disposition of any Partnership property shall be determined as if the adjusted basis of such property as of such date of disposition were equal in amount to the Partnership's Carrying Value with respect to such property as of such date. (v) In accordance with the requirements of Section 704(b) of the Code, any deductions for depreciation, cost recovery or amortization attributable to any Contributed 35

Property shall be determined as if the adjusted basis of such property on the date it was acquired by the Partnership were equal to the Agreed Value of such property. Upon an adjustment pursuant to Section 5.5(d) to the Carrying Value of any Partnership property subject to depreciation, cost recovery or amortization, any further deductions for such depreciation, cost recovery or amortization attributable to such property shall be determined (A) as if the adjusted basis of such property were equal to the Carrying Value of such property immediately following such adjustment and (B) using a rate of depreciation, cost recovery or amortization derived from the same method and useful life (or, if applicable, the remaining useful life) as is applied for federal income tax purposes; provided, however, that, if the asset has a zero adjusted basis for federal income tax purposes, depreciation, cost recovery or amortization deductions shall be determined using any reasonable method that the General Partner may adopt. (vi) If the Partnership's adjusted basis in a depreciable or cost recovery property is reduced for federal income tax purposes pursuant to Section 48(q)(1) or 48(q)(3) of the Code, the amount of such reduction shall, solely for purposes hereof, be deemed to be an additional depreciation or cost recovery deduction in the year such property is placed in service and shall be allocated among the Partners pursuant to Section 6.1. Any restoration of such basis pursuant to Section 48(q)(2) of the Code shall, to the extent possible, be allocated in the same manner to the Partners to whom such deemed deduction was allocated. (c) (i) A transferee of a Partnership Interest shall succeed to a pro rata portion of the Capital Account of the transferor relating to the Partnership Interest so transferred. (ii) Immediately prior to the transfer of a Subordinated Unit or of a Subordinated Unit that has converted into a Common Unit pursuant to Section 5.8 by a holder thereof (other than a transfer to an Affiliate unless the General Partner elects to have this subparagraph 5.5(c)(ii) apply), the Capital Account maintained for such Person with respect to its Subordinated Units or converted Subordinated Units will (A) first, be allocated to the Subordinated Units or converted Subordinated Units to be transferred in an amount equal to the product of (x) the number of such Subordinated Units or converted Subordinated Units to be transferred and (y) the Per Unit Capital Amount for a Common Unit, and (B) second, any remaining balance in such Capital Account will be retained by the transferor, regardless of whether it has retained any Subordinated Units or converted Subordinated Units. Following any such allocation, the transferor's Capital Account, if any, maintained with respect to the retained Subordinated Units or converted Subordinated Units, if any, will have a balance equal to the amount allocated under clause (B) hereinabove, and the transferee's Capital Account established with respect to the transferred Subordinated Units or converted Subordinated Units will have a balance equal to the amount allocated under clause (A) hereinabove. (d) (i) In accordance with Treasury Regulation Section 1.704-1(b)(2)(iv)(f), on an issuance of additional Partnership Interests for cash or Contributed Property or the conversion of the General Partner's Combined Interest to Common Units pursuant to Section 11.3(b), the Capital Account of all Partners and the Carrying Value of each Partnership property immediately prior to such issuance shall be adjusted upward or downward to reflect any Unrealized Gain or 36

Unrealized Loss attributable to such Partnership property, as if such Unrealized Gain or Unrealized Loss had been recognized on an actual sale of each such property immediately prior to such issuance and had been allocated to the Partners at such time pursuant to Section 6.1 in the same manner as any item of gain or loss actually recognized during such period would have been allocated. In determining such Unrealized Gain or Unrealized Loss, the aggregate cash amount and fair market value of all Partnership assets (including, without limitation, cash or cash equivalents) immediately prior to the issuance of additional Partnership Interests shall be determined by the General Partner using such reasonable method of valuation as it may adopt; provided, however, that the General Partner, in arriving at such valuation, must take fully into account the fair market value of the Partnership Interests of all Partners at such time. The General Partner shall allocate such aggregate value among the assets of the Partnership (in such manner as it determines in its discretion to be reasonable) to arrive at a fair market value for individual properties. (ii) In accordance with Treasury Regulation Section 1.704-1(b)(2)(iv)(f), immediately prior to any actual or deemed distribution to a Partner of any Partnership property (other than a distribution of cash that is not in redemption or retirement of a Partnership Interest), the Capital Accounts of all Partners and the Carrying Value of all Partnership property shall be adjusted upward or downward to reflect any Unrealized Gain or Unrealized Loss attributable to such Partnership property, as if such Unrealized Gain or Unrealized Loss had been recognized in a sale of such property immediately prior to such distribution for an amount equal to its fair market value, and had been allocated to the Partners, at such time, pursuant to Section 6.1 in the same manner as any item of gain or loss actually recognized during such period would have been allocated. In determining such Unrealized Gain or Unrealized Loss the aggregate cash amount and fair market value of all Partnership assets (including, without limitation, cash or cash equivalents) immediately prior to a distribution shall (A) in the case of an actual distribution which is not made pursuant to Section 12.4 or in the case of a deemed distribution, be determined and allocated in the same manner as that provided in Section 5.5(d)(i) or (B) in the case of a liquidating distribution pursuant to Section 12.4, be determined and allocated by the Liquidator using such reasonable method of valuation as it may adopt. Section 5.6 Issuances of Additional Partnership Securities. (a) Subject to Section 5.7, the Partnership may issue additional Partnership Securities and options, rights, warrants and appreciation rights relating to the Partnership Securities for any Partnership purpose at any time and from time to time to such Persons for such consideration and on such terms and conditions as shall be established by the General Partner in its sole discretion, all without the approval of any Limited Partners. (b) Each additional Partnership Security authorized to be issued by the Partnership pursuant to Section 5.6(a) may be issued in one or more classes, or one or more series of any such classes, with such designations, preferences, rights, powers and duties (which may be senior to existing classes and series of Partnership Securities), as shall be fixed by the General Partner in the exercise of its sole discretion, including (i) the right to share Partnership profits and losses or items thereof; (ii) the right to share in Partnership distributions; (iii) the rights upon 37

dissolution and liquidation of the Partnership; (iv) whether, and the terms and conditions upon which, the Partnership may redeem the Partnership Security; (v) whether such Partnership Security is issued with the privilege of conversion or exchange and, if so, the terms and conditions of such conversion or exchange; (vi) the terms and conditions upon which each Partnership Security will be issued, evidenced by certificates and assigned or transferred; and (vii) the right, if any, of each such Partnership Security to vote on Partnership matters, including matters relating to the relative rights, preferences and privileges of such Partnership Security. (c) The General Partner is hereby authorized and directed to take all actions that it deems necessary or appropriate in connection with (i) each issuance of Partnership Securities and options, rights, warrants and appreciation rights relating to Partnership Securities pursuant to this Section 5.6, (ii) the conversion of the General Partner Interest or any Incentive Distribution Rights into Units pursuant to the terms of this Agreement, (iii) the admission of Additional Limited Partners and (iv) all additional issuances of Partnership Securities. The General Partner is further authorized and directed to specify the relative rights, powers and duties of the holders of the Units or other Partnership Securities being so issued. The General Partner shall do all things necessary to comply with the Delaware Act and is authorized and directed to do all things it deems to be necessary or advisable in connection with any future issuance of Partnership Securities or in connection with the conversion of the General Partner Interest or any Incentive Distribution Rights into Units pursuant to the terms of this Agreement, including compliance with any statute, rule, regulation or guideline of any federal, state or other governmental agency or any National Securities Exchange on which the Units or other Partnership Securities are listed for trading. Section 5.7 Limitations on Issuance of Additional Partnership Securities. Except as otherwise specified in this Section 5.7, the issuance of Partnership Securities pursuant to Section 5.6 shall be subject to the following restrictions and limitations: (a) During the Subordination Period, the Partnership shall not issue (and shall not issue any options, rights, warrants or appreciation rights relating to) an aggregate of more than 5,691,820 additional Parity Units without the prior approval of the holders of a Unit Majority. In applying this limitation, there shall be excluded Common Units and other Parity Units issued (A) in connection with the Underwriting Agreement, (B) in accordance with Sections 5.7(b) and 5.7(c), (C) upon conversion of Subordinated Units pursuant to Section 5.8, (D) upon conversion of the General Partner Interest or any Incentive Distribution Rights pursuant to Section 11.3(b), (D) pursuant to the employee benefit plans of the General Partner, the Partnership or any other Group Member, (E) upon a conversion or exchange of Parity Units issued after the date hereof into Common Units or other Parity Units; provided that the total amount of Available Cash required to pay the aggregate Minimum Quarterly Distribution on all Common Units and all Parity Units does not increase as a result of this conversion or exchange and (F) in the event of a combination or subdivision of Common Units. (b) During the Subordination Period, the Partnership may also issue an unlimited number of Parity Units without the prior approval of the Unitholders, if such issuance occurs (i) in connection with an Acquisition or a Capital Improvement or (ii) within 365 days of, and the net proceeds from such issuance are used to repay debt incurred in connection with, an 38

Acquisition or a Capital Improvement, in each case where such Acquisition or Capital Improvement involves assets that, if acquired by the Partnership as of the date that is one year prior to the first day of the Quarter in which such Acquisition is to be consummated or such Capital Improvement is to be completed, would have resulted, on a pro forma basis, in an increase in: (A) the amount of Adjusted Operating Surplus generated by the Partnership on a per-Unit basis (for all Outstanding Units) with respect to each of the four most recently completed Quarters (on a pro forma basis as described below) as compared to (B) the actual amount of Adjusted Operating Surplus generated by the Partnership on a per-Unit basis (for all Outstanding Units) (excluding Adjusted Operating Surplus attributable to the Acquisition or Capital Improvement) with respect to each of such four most recently completed Quarters. The General Partner's good faith determination that such an increase would have resulted shall be conclusive. If the issuance of Parity Units with respect to an Acquisition or Capital Improvement occurs within the first four full Quarters after the Closing Date, then Adjusted Operating Surplus as used in clauses (A) (subject to the succeeding sentence) and (B) above shall be calculated (i) for each Quarter, if any, that commenced after the Closing Date for which actual results of operations are available, based on the actual Adjusted Operating Surplus of the Partnership generated with respect to such Quarter, and (ii) for each other Quarter, on a pro forma basis consistent with the procedures, as applicable, set forth in Appendix D to the Registration Statement. Furthermore, the amount in clause (A) shall be determined on a pro forma basis assuming that (1) all of the Parity Units to be issued in connection with or within 365 days of such Acquisition or Capital Improvement had been issued and outstanding, (2) all indebtedness for borrowed money to be incurred or assumed in connection with such Acquisition or Capital Improvement (other than any such indebtedness that is to be repaid with the proceeds of such issuance of Parity Units) had been incurred or assumed, in each case as of the commencement of such four-Quarter period, (3) the personnel expenses that would have been incurred by the Partnership in the operation of the acquired assets are the personnel expenses for employees to be retained by the Partnership in the operation of the acquired assets, and (4) the non-personnel costs and expenses are computed on the same basis as those incurred by the Partnership in the operation of the Partnership's business at similarly situated Partnership facilities. (c) During the Subordination Period, without the prior approval of the holders of a Unit Majority, the Partnership shall not issue any additional Partnership Securities (or options, rights, warrants or appreciation rights related thereto) (i) that are entitled in any Quarter to receive in respect of the Subordination Period any distribution of Available Cash from Operating Surplus before the Common Units and any Parity Units have received (or amounts have been set aside for payment of) the Minimum Quarterly Distribution and any Cumulative Common Unit Arrearage for such Quarter or (ii) that are entitled to allocations in respect of the Subordination Period of Net Termination Gain before the Common Units and any Parity Units have been allocated Net Termination Gain pursuant to Section 6.1(c)(i)(B). 39

(d) During the Subordination Period, without the prior approval of the Unitholders, the Partnership may issue additional Partnership Securities (or options, rights, warrants or appreciation rights related thereto) (i) that are not entitled in any Quarter during the Subordination Period to receive any distributions of Available Cash from Operating Surplus until after the Common Units and any Parity Units have received (or amounts have been set aside for payment of) the Minimum Quarterly Distribution and any Cumulative Common Unit Arrearage for such Quarter and (ii) that are not entitled to allocations in respect of the Subordination Period of Net Termination Gain before the Common Units and Parity Units have been allocated Net Termination Gain pursuant to Section 6.1(c)(i)(B), even if (A) the amount of Available Cash from Operating Surplus to which each such Partnership Security is entitled to receive after the Minimum Quarterly Distribution and any Cumulative Common Unit Arrearage have been paid or set aside for payment on the Common Units exceeds the Minimum Quarterly Distribution, (B) the amount of Net Termination Gain to be allocated to such Partnership Security after Net Termination Gain has been allocated to any Common Units and Parity Units pursuant to Section 6.1(c)(i)(B) exceeds the amount of such Net Termination Gain to be allocated to each Common Unit or Parity Unit or (C) the holders of such additional Partnership Securities have the right to require the Partnership or its Affiliates to repurchase such Partnership Securities at a discount, par or a premium. (e) During the Subordination Period, the Partnership may also issue an unlimited number of Parity Units without the approval of the Unitholders, if the proceeds from such issuance are used exclusively to repay up to $40.0 million of indebtedness of a Group Member where the aggregate amount of distributions that would have been paid with respect to such newly issued Units or Partnership Securities, plus the related distributions on the General Partner Interest in respect of the four-Quarter period ending prior to the first day of the Quarter in which the issuance is to be consummated (assuming such additional Units or Partnership Securities had been Outstanding throughout such period and that distributions equal to the distributions that were actually paid on the Outstanding Units during the period were paid on such additional Units or Partnership Securities) did not exceed the interest costs actually incurred during such period on the indebtedness that is to be repaid (or, if such indebtedness was not outstanding throughout the entire period, would have been incurred had such indebtedness been outstanding for the entire period). In the event that the Partnership is required to pay a prepayment penalty in connection with the repayment of such indebtedness, for purposes of the foregoing test the number of Parity Units issued to repay such indebtedness shall be deemed increased by the number of Parity Units that would need to be issued to pay such penalty. (f) No fractional Units shall be issued by the Partnership. Section 5.8 Conversion of Subordinated Units. (a) A total of 2,845,910 of the Outstanding Subordinated Units will convert into Common Units on a one-for-one basis immediately after the distribution of Available Cash to Partners pursuant to Section 6.3(a) in respect of any Quarter ending on or after December 31, 2004, in respect of which: (i) distributions under Section 6.4 in respect of all Outstanding Common Units and Subordinated Units and any other Outstanding Units that are senior or equal in 40

right of distribution to the Subordinated Units with respect to each of the three consecutive, non-overlapping four-Quarter periods immediately preceding such date equaled or exceeded the sum of the Minimum Quarterly Distribution on all of the Outstanding Common Units and Subordinated Units and any other Outstanding Units that are senior or equal in right of distribution to the Subordinated Units during such periods; (ii) the Adjusted Operating Surplus generated during each of the three consecutive, non-overlapping four-Quarter periods immediately preceding such date equaled or exceeded the sum of the Minimum Quarterly Distribution on all of the Common Units, Subordinated Units and any other Units that are senior or equal in right of distribution to the Subordinated Units that were Outstanding during such periods on a Fully Diluted Basis, plus the related distribution on the General Partner Interest in the Partnership, during such periods; and (iii) the Cumulative Common Unit Arrearage on all of the Common Units is zero. (b) An additional 2,845,910 of the Outstanding Subordinated Units will convert into Common Units on a one-for-one basis immediately after the distribution of Available Cash to Partners pursuant to Section 6.3(a) in respect of any Quarter ending on or after December 31, 2005, in respect of which (i) distributions under Section 6.4 in respect of all Outstanding Common Units and Subordinated Units and any other Outstanding Units that are senior or equal in right of distribution to the Subordinated Units with respect to each of the three consecutive, non-overlapping four-Quarter periods immediately preceding such date equaled or exceeded the sum of the Minimum Quarterly Distribution on all of the Outstanding Common Units and Subordinated Units and any other Outstanding Units that are senior or equal in right of distribution to the Subordinated Units during such periods; (ii) the Adjusted Operating Surplus generated during each of the three consecutive, non-overlapping four-Quarter periods immediately preceding such date equaled or exceeded the sum of the Minimum Quarterly Distribution on all of the Common Units, Subordinated Units and any other Units that are senior or equal in right of distribution to the Subordinated Units that were Outstanding during such periods on a Fully Diluted Basis, plus the related distribution on the General Partner Interest during such periods; and (iii) the Cumulative Common Unit Arrearage on all of the Common Units is zero; provided, however, that the conversion of Subordinated Units pursuant to this Section 5.8(b) may not occur until at least one year following the conversion of Subordinated Units pursuant to Section 5.8(a). (c) In the event that less than all of the Outstanding Subordinated Units shall convert into Common Units pursuant to Section 5.8(a) or 5.8(b) at a time when there shall be more than one holder of Subordinated Units, then, unless all of the holders of Subordinated Units shall 41

agree to a different allocation, the Subordinated Units that are to be converted into Common Units shall be allocated among the holders of Subordinated Units pro rata based on the number of Subordinated Units held by each such holder. (d) Any Subordinated Units that are not converted into Common Units pursuant to Section 5.8(a) and (b) shall convert into Common Units on a one-for-one basis immediately after the distribution of Available Cash to Partners pursuant to Section 6.3(a) in respect of the final Quarter of the Subordination Period. (e) Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, all the then Outstanding Subordinated Units will automatically convert into Common Units on a one-for-one basis as set forth in, and pursuant to the terms of, Section 11.4. (f) A Subordinated Unit that has converted into a Common Unit shall be subject to the provisions of Section 6.7(b). Section 5.9 Limited Preemptive Right. Except as provided in this Section 5.9 and in Section 5.2, no Person shall have any preemptive, preferential or other similar right with respect to the issuance of any Partnership Security, whether unissued, held in the treasury or hereafter created. The General Partner shall have the right, which it may from time to time assign in whole or in part to any of its Affiliates, to purchase Partnership Securities from the Partnership whenever, and on the same terms that, the Partnership issues Partnership Securities to Persons other than the General Partner and its Affiliates, to the extent necessary to maintain the Percentage Interests of the General Partner and its Affiliates equal to that which existed immediately prior to the issuance of such Partnership Securities. Section 5.10 Splits and Combinations. (a) Subject to Sections 5.10(d), 6.6 and 6.9 (dealing with adjustments of distribution levels), the Partnership may make a Pro Rata distribution of Partnership Securities to all Record Holders or may effect a subdivision or combination of Partnership Securities so long as, after any such event, each Partner shall have the same Percentage Interest in the Partnership as before such event, and any amounts calculated on a per Unit basis (including any Common Unit Arrearage or Cumulative Common Unit Arrearage) or stated as a number of Units (including the number of Subordinated Units that may convert prior to the end of the Subordination Period and the number of additional Parity Units that may be issued pursuant to Section 5.7 without a Unitholder vote) are proportionately adjusted retroactive to the beginning of the Partnership. (b) Whenever such a distribution, subdivision or combination of Partnership Securities is declared, the General Partner shall select a Record Date as of which the distribution, subdivision or combination shall be effective and shall send notice thereof at least 20 days prior to such Record Date to each Record Holder as of a date not less than 10 days prior to the date of such notice. The General Partner also may cause a firm of independent public accountants selected by it to calculate the number of Partnership Securities to be held by each Record Holder after giving effect to such distribution, subdivision or combination. The General Partner shall be 42

entitled to rely on any certificate provided by such firm as conclusive evidence of the accuracy of such calculation. (c) Promptly following any such distribution, subdivision or combination, the Partnership may issue Certificates to the Record Holders of Partnership Securities as of the applicable Record Date representing the new number of Partnership Securities held by such Record Holders, or the General Partner may adopt such other procedures as it may deem appropriate to reflect such changes. If any such combination results in a smaller total number of Partnership Securities Outstanding, the Partnership shall require, as a condition to the delivery to a Record Holder of such new Certificate, the surrender of any Certificate held by such Record Holder immediately prior to such Record Date. (d) The Partnership shall not issue fractional Units upon any distribution, subdivision or combination of Units. If a distribution, subdivision or combination of Units would result in the issuance of fractional Units but for the provisions of Section 5.7(e) and this Section 5.10(d), each fractional Unit shall be rounded to the nearest whole Unit (and a 0.5 Unit shall be rounded to the next higher Unit). Section 5.11 Fully Paid and Non-Assessable Nature of Limited Partner Interests. All Limited Partner Interests issued pursuant to, and in accordance with the requirements of, this Article V shall be fully paid and non-assessable Limited Partner Interests in the Partnership, except as such non-assessability may be affected by Section 17-607 of the Delaware Act. ARTICLE VI ALLOCATIONS AND DISTRIBUTIONS Section 6.1 Allocations for Capital Account Purposes. For purposes of maintaining the Capital Accounts and in determining the rights of the Partners among themselves, the Partnership's items of income, gain, loss and deduction (computed in accordance with Section 5.5(b)) shall be allocated among the Partners in each taxable year (or portion thereof) as provided herein below. (a) Net Income. After giving effect to the special allocations set forth in Section 6.1(d), Net Income for each taxable year and all items of income, gain, loss and deduction taken into account in computing Net Income for such taxable year shall be allocated as follows: (i) First, 100% to the General Partner, in an amount equal to the aggregate Net Losses allocated to the General Partner pursuant to Section 6.1(b)(iii) for all previous taxable years until the aggregate Net Income allocated to the General Partner pursuant to this Section 6.1(a)(i) for the current taxable year and all previous taxable years is equal to the aggregate Net Losses allocated to the General Partner pursuant to Section 6.1(b)(iii) for all previous taxable years; 43

(ii) Second, 2% to the General Partner, in an amount equal to the aggregate Net Losses allocated to the General Partner pursuant to Section 6.1(b)(ii) for all previous taxable years and 98% to the Unitholders, in accordance with their respective Percentage Interests, until the aggregate Net Income allocated to such Partners pursuant to this Section 6.1(a)(ii) for the current taxable year and all previous taxable years is equal to the aggregate Net Losses allocated to such Partners pursuant to Section 6.1(b)(ii) for all previous taxable years; and (iii) Third, 2% to the General Partner, and 98% to the Unitholders, Pro Rata. (b) Net Losses. After giving effect to the special allocations set forth in Section 6.1(d), Net Losses for each taxable period and all items of income, gain, loss and deduction taken into account in computing Net Losses for such taxable period shall be allocated as follows: (i) First, 2% to the General Partner, and 98% to the Unitholders, Pro Rata, until the aggregate Net Losses allocated pursuant to this Section 6.1(b)(i) for the current taxable year and all previous taxable years is equal to the aggregate Net Income allocated to such Partners pursuant to Section 6.1(a)(iii) for all previous taxable years, provided that the Net Losses shall not be allocated pursuant to this Section 6.1(b)(i) to the extent that such allocation would cause any Unitholder to have a deficit balance in its Adjusted Capital Account at the end of such taxable year (or increase any existing deficit balance in its Adjusted Capital Account); (ii) Second, 2% to the General Partner, and 98% to the Unitholders, Pro Rata; provided, that Net Losses shall not be allocated pursuant to this Section 6.1(b)(ii) to the extent that such allocation would cause any Unitholder to have a deficit balance in its Adjusted Capital Account at the end of such taxable year (or increase any existing deficit balance in its Adjusted Capital Account); (iii) Third, the balance, if any, 100% to the General Partner. (c) Net Termination Gains and Losses. After giving effect to the special allocations set forth in Section 6.1(d), all items of income, gain, loss and deduction taken into account in computing Net Termination Gain or Net Termination Loss for such taxable period shall be allocated in the same manner as such Net Termination Gain or Net Termination Loss is allocated hereunder. All allocations under this Section 6.1(c) shall be made after Capital Account balances have been adjusted by all other allocations provided under this Section 6.1 and after all distributions of Available Cash provided under Sections 6.4 and 6.5 have been made; provided, however, that solely for purposes of this Section 6.1(c), Capital Accounts shall not be adjusted for distributions made pursuant to Section 12.4. (i) If a Net Termination Gain is recognized (or deemed recognized pursuant to Section 5.5(d)), such Net Termination Gain shall be allocated among the Partners in the following manner (and the Capital Accounts of the Partners shall be increased by the amount so allocated in each of the following subclauses, in the order listed, before an allocation is made pursuant to the next succeeding subclause): 44

(A) First, to each Partner having a deficit balance in its Capital Account, in the proportion that such deficit balance bears to the total deficit balances in the Capital Accounts of all Partners, until each such Partner has been allocated Net Termination Gain equal to any such deficit balance in its Capital Account; (B) Second, 98% to all Unitholders holding Common Units, Pro Rata, and 2% to the General Partner, until the Capital Account in respect of each Common Unit then Outstanding is equal to the sum of (1) its Unrecovered Capital plus (2) the Minimum Quarterly Distribution for the Quarter during which the Liquidation Date occurs, reduced by any distribution pursuant to Section 6.4(a)(i) or (b)(i) with respect to such Common Unit for such Quarter (the amount determined pursuant to this clause (2) is hereinafter defined as the "Unpaid MQD") plus (3) any then existing Cumulative Common Unit Arrearage; (C) Third, if such Net Termination Gain is recognized (or is deemed to be recognized) prior to the expiration of the Subordination Period, 98% to all Unitholders holding Subordinated Units, Pro Rata, and 2% to the General Partner, until the Capital Account in respect of each Subordinated Unit then Outstanding equals the sum of (1) its Unrecovered Capital, determined for the taxable year (or portion thereof) to which this allocation of gain relates, plus (2) the Minimum Quarterly Distribution for the Quarter during which the Liquidation Date occurs, reduced by any distribution pursuant to Section 6.4(a)(iii) with respect to such Subordinated Unit for such Quarter; (D) Fourth, 98% to all Unitholders, Pro Rata, and 2% to the General Partner, until the Capital Account in respect of each Common Unit then Outstanding is equal to the sum of (1) its Unrecovered Capital, plus (2) the Unpaid MQD, plus (3) any then existing Cumulative Common Unit Arrearage, plus (4) the excess of (aa) the First Target Distribution less the Minimum Quarterly Distribution for each Quarter of the Partnership's existence over (bb) the cumulative per Unit amount of any distributions of Available Cash that is deemed to be Operating Surplus made pursuant to Sections 6.4(a)(iv) and 6.4(b)(ii) (the sum of (1) plus (2) plus (3) plus (4) is hereinafter defined as the "First Liquidation Target Amount"); (E) Fifth, 85% to all Unitholders, Pro Rata, 13% to the holders of the Incentive Distribution Rights, Pro Rata, and 2% to the General Partner, until the Capital Account in respect of each Common Unit then Outstanding is equal to the sum of (1) the First Liquidation Target Amount, plus (2) the excess of (aa) the Second Target Distribution less the First Target Distribution for each Quarter of the Partnership's existence over (bb) the cumulative per Unit amount of any distributions of Available Cash that is deemed to be Operating Surplus made pursuant to Sections 6.4(a)(v) and 6.4(b)(iii) (the sum of (1) plus (2) is hereinafter defined as the "Second Liquidation Target Amount"); 45

(F) Sixth, 75% to all Unitholders, Pro Rata, 23% to the holders of the Incentive Distribution Rights, Pro Rata, and 2% to the General Partner, until the Capital Account in respect of each Common Unit then Outstanding is equal to the sum of (1) the Second Liquidation Target Amount, plus (2) the excess of (aa) the Third Target Distribution less the Second Target Distribution for each Quarter of the Partnership's existence over (bb) the cumulative per Unit amount of any distributions of Available Cash that is deemed to be Operating Surplus made pursuant to Sections 6.4(a)(vi)and 6.4(b)(iv) (the sum of (1) plus (2) is hereinafter defined as the "Third Liquidation Target Amount"); and (G) Finally, any remaining amount 50% to all Unitholders, Pro Rata, 48% to the holders of the Incentive Distribution Rights, Pro Rata, and 2% to the General Partner. (ii) If a Net Termination Loss is recognized (or deemed recognized pursuant to Section 5.5(d)), such Net Termination Loss shall be allocated among the Partners in the following manner: (A) First, if such Net Termination Loss is recognized (or is deemed to be recognized) prior to the conversion of the last Outstanding Subordinated Unit, 98% to the Unitholders holding Subordinated Units, Pro Rata, and 2% to the General Partner, until the Capital Account in respect of each Subordinated Unit then Outstanding has been reduced to zero; (B) Second, 98% to all Unitholders holding Common Units, Pro Rata, and 2% to the General Partner, until the Capital Account in respect of each Common Unit then Outstanding has been reduced to zero; and (C) Third, the balance, if any, 100% to the General Partner. (iii) If, immediately prior to the allocation of any Net Termination Gain or Net Termination Loss pursuant to Section 6.1(c)(i) and (ii), the cumulative amount of Capital Contributions by the General Partner to the Partnership described in Section 5.2(c) exceeds the cumulative amount of items allocated to the General Partner pursuant to Section 6.1(d)(xiii), items of loss and deduction shall be allocated to the General Partner, immediately prior to any allocation pursuant to Section 6.1(c)(i) and (ii), in an amount equal to such excess. In the event the amount of Partnership losses and deductions available to make the allocation described in the previous sentence is less than the amount required to satisfy such allocation, Net Termination Gain that would otherwise be allocated to the General Partner pursuant to Sections 6.1(c)(i)(B), (D), (E), (F) or (G), in an amount equal to such shortfall, shall be allocated to the Unitholders holding Common Units instead. (d) Special Allocations. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Section 6.1, the following special allocations shall be made for such taxable period: (i) Partnership Minimum Gain Chargeback. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Section 6.1, if there is a net decrease in Partnership Minimum Gain 46

during any Partnership taxable period, each Partner shall be allocated items of Partnership income and gain for such period (and, if necessary, subsequent periods) in the manner and amounts provided in Treasury Regulation Sections 1.704-2(f)(6), 1.704-2(g)(2) and 1.704-2(j)(2)(i), or any successor provision. For purposes of this Section 6.1(d), each Partner's Adjusted Capital Account balance shall be determined, and the allocation of income or gain required hereunder shall be effected, prior to the application of any other allocations pursuant to this Section 6.1(d) with respect to such taxable period (other than an allocation pursuant to Sections 6.1(d)(vi) and 6.1(d)(vii)). This Section 6.1(d)(i) is intended to comply with the Partnership Minimum Gain chargeback requirement in Treasury Regulation Section 1.704-2(f) and shall be interpreted consistently therewith. (ii) Chargeback of Partner Nonrecourse Debt Minimum Gain. Notwithstanding the other provisions of this Section 6.1 (other than Section 6.1(d)(i)), except as provided in Treasury Regulation Section 1.704-2(i)(4), if there is a net decrease in Partner Nonrecourse Debt Minimum Gain during any Partnership taxable period, any Partner with a share of Partner Nonrecourse Debt Minimum Gain at the beginning of such taxable period shall be allocated items of Partnership income and gain for such period (and, if necessary, subsequent periods) in the manner and amounts provided in Treasury Regulation Sections 1.704-2(i)(4) and 1.704-2(j)(2)(ii), or any successor provisions. For purposes of this Section 6.1(d), each Partner's Adjusted Capital Account balance shall be determined, and the allocation of income or gain required hereunder shall be effected, prior to the application of any other allocations pursuant to this Section 6.1(d), other than Section 6.1(d)(i) and other than an allocation pursuant to Sections 6.1(d)(vi) and 6.1(d)(vii), with respect to such taxable period. This Section 6.1(d)(ii) is intended to comply with the chargeback of items of income and gain requirement in Treasury Regulation Section 1.704-2(i)(4) and shall be interpreted consistently therewith. (iii) Priority Allocations. (A) If the amount of cash or the Net Agreed Value of any property distributed (except cash or property distributed pursuant to Section 12.4) to any Unitholder with respect to its Units for a taxable year is greater (on a per Unit basis) than the amount of cash or the Net Agreed Value of property distributed to the other Unitholders with respect to their Units (on a per Unit basis), then (1) each Unitholder receiving such greater cash or property distribution shall be allocated gross income in an amount equal to the product of (aa) the amount by which the distribution (on a per Unit basis) to such Unitholder exceeds the distribution (on a per Unit basis) to the Unitholders receiving the smallest distribution and (bb) the number of Units owned by the Unitholder receiving the greater distribution; and (2) the General Partner shall be allocated gross income in an aggregate amount equal to 2/98ths of the sum of the amounts allocated in clause (1) above. (B) After the application of Section 6.1(d)(iii)(A), all or any portion of the remaining items of Partnership gross income or gain for the taxable period, if 47

any, shall be allocated 100% to the holders of Incentive Distribution Rights, Pro Rata, until the aggregate amount of such items allocated to the holders of Incentive Distribution Rights pursuant to this paragraph 6.1(d)(iii)(B) for the current taxable year and all previous taxable years is equal to the cumulative amount of all Incentive Distributions made to the holders of Incentive Distribution Rights from the Closing Date to a date 45 days after the end of the current taxable year. (iv) Qualified Income Offset. In the event any Partner unexpectedly receives any adjustments, allocations or distributions described in Treasury Regulation Sections 1.704-1(b)(2)(ii)(d)(4), 1.704-1(b)(2)(ii)(d)(5), or 1.704-1(b)(2)(ii)(d)(6), items of Partnership income and gain shall be specially allocated to such Partner in an amount and manner sufficient to eliminate, to the extent required by the Treasury Regulations promulgated under Section 704(b) of the Code, the deficit balance, if any, in its Adjusted Capital Account created by such adjustments, allocations or distributions as quickly as possible unless such deficit balance is otherwise eliminated pursuant to Section 6.1(d)(i) or (ii). (v) Gross Income Allocations. In the event any Partner has a deficit balance in its Capital Account at the end of any Partnership taxable period in excess of the sum of (A) the amount such Partner is required to restore pursuant to the provisions of this Agreement and (B) the amount such Partner is deemed obligated to restore pursuant to Treasury Regulation Sections 1.704-2(g) and 1.704-2(i)(5), such Partner shall be specially allocated items of Partnership gross income and gain in the amount of such excess as quickly as possible; provided, that an allocation pursuant to this Section 6.1(d)(v) shall be made only if and to the extent that such Partner would have a deficit balance in its Capital Account as adjusted after all other allocations provided for in this Section 6.1 have been tentatively made as if this Section 6.1(d)(v) were not in this Agreement. (vi) Nonrecourse Deductions. Nonrecourse Deductions for any taxable period shall be allocated to the Partners in accordance with their respective Percentage Interests. If the General Partner determines in its good faith discretion that the Partnership's Nonrecourse Deductions must be allocated in a different ratio to satisfy the safe harbor requirements of the Treasury Regulations promulgated under Section 704(b) of the Code, the General Partner is authorized, upon notice to the other Partners, to revise the prescribed ratio to the numerically closest ratio that does satisfy such requirements. (vii) Partner Nonrecourse Deductions. Partner Nonrecourse Deductions for any taxable period shall be allocated 100% to the Partner that bears the Economic Risk of Loss with respect to the Partner Nonrecourse Debt to which such Partner Nonrecourse Deductions are attributable in accordance with Treasury Regulation Section 1.704-2(i). If more than one Partner bears the Economic Risk of Loss with respect to a Partner Nonrecourse Debt, such Partner Nonrecourse Deductions attributable thereto shall be allocated between or among such Partners in accordance with the ratios in which they share such Economic Risk of Loss. 48

(viii) Nonrecourse Liabilities. For purposes of Treasury Regulation Section 1.752-3(a)(3), the Partners agree that Nonrecourse Liabilities of the Partnership in excess of the sum of (A) the amount of Partnership Minimum Gain and (B) the total amount of Nonrecourse Built-in Gain shall be allocated among the Partners in accordance with their respective Percentage Interests. (ix) Code Section 754 Adjustments. To the extent an adjustment to the adjusted tax basis of any Partnership asset pursuant to Section 734(b) or 743(c) of the Code is required, pursuant to Treasury Regulation Section 1.704-1(b)(2)(iv)(m), to be taken into account in determining Capital Accounts, the amount of such adjustment to the Capital Accounts shall be treated as an item of gain (if the adjustment increases the basis of the asset) or loss (if the adjustment decreases such basis), and such item of gain or loss shall be specially allocated to the Partners in a manner consistent with the manner in which their Capital Accounts are required to be adjusted pursuant to such Section of the Treasury Regulations. (x) Economic Uniformity. At the election of the General Partner with respect to any taxable period ending upon, or after, the termination of the Subordination Period, all or a portion of the remaining items of Partnership gross income or gain for such taxable period, after taking into account allocations pursuant to Section 6.1(d)(iii), shall be allocated 100% to each Partner holding Subordinated Units that are Outstanding as of the termination of the Subordination Period ("Final Subordinated Units") in the proportion of the number of Final Subordinated Units held by such Partner to the total number of Final Subordinated Units then Outstanding, until each such Partner has been allocated an amount of gross income or gain which increases the Capital Account maintained with respect to such Final Subordinated Units to an amount equal to the product of (A) the number of Final Subordinated Units held by such Partner and (B) the Per Unit Capital Amount for a Common Unit. The purpose of this allocation is to establish uniformity between the Capital Accounts underlying Final Subordinated Units and the Capital Accounts underlying Common Units held by Persons other than the General Partner and its Affiliates immediately prior to the conversion of such Final Subordinated Units into Common Units. This allocation method for establishing such economic uniformity will only be available to the General Partner if the method for allocating the Capital Account maintained with respect to the Subordinated Units between the transferred and retained Subordinated Units pursuant to Section 5.5(c)(ii) does not otherwise provide such economic uniformity to the Final Subordinated Units. (xi) Curative Allocation. (A) Notwithstanding any other provision of this Section 6.1, other than the Required Allocations, the Required Allocations shall be taken into account in making the Agreed Allocations so that, to the extent possible, the net amount of items of income, gain, loss and deduction allocated to each Partner pursuant to the Required Allocations and the Agreed Allocations, together, shall be equal to the net amount of such items that would have been allocated to each such Partner under the Agreed Allocations had the Required Allocations and the related Curative Allocation not otherwise been provided in this Section 6.1. 49

Notwithstanding the preceding sentence, Required Allocations relating to (1) Nonrecourse Deductions shall not be taken into account except to the extent that there has been a decrease in Partnership Minimum Gain and (2) Partner Nonrecourse Deductions shall not be taken into account except to the extent that there has been a decrease in Partner Nonrecourse Debt Minimum Gain. Allocations pursuant to this Section 6.1(d)(xi)(A) shall only be made with respect to Required Allocations to the extent the General Partner reasonably determines that such allocations will otherwise be inconsistent with the economic agreement among the Partners. Further, allocations pursuant to this Section 6.1(d)(xi)(A) shall be deferred with respect to allocations pursuant to clauses (1) and (2) hereof to the extent the General Partner reasonably determines that such allocations are likely to be offset by subsequent Required Allocations. (B) The General Partner shall have reasonable discretion, with respect to each taxable period, to (1) apply the provisions of Section 6.1(d)(xi)(A) in whatever order is most likely to minimize the economic distortions that might otherwise result from the Required Allocations, and (2) divide all allocations pursuant to Section 6.1(d)(xi)(A) among the Partners in a manner that is likely to minimize such economic distortions. (xii) Corrective Allocations. In the event of any allocation of Additional Book Basis Derivative Items or any Book-Down Event or any recognition of a Net Termination Loss, the following rules shall apply: (A) In the case of any allocation of Additional Book Basis Derivative Items (other than an allocation of Unrealized Gain or Unrealized Loss under Section 5.5(d) hereof), the General Partner shall allocate additional items of gross income and gain away from the holders of Incentive Distribution Rights to the Unitholders and the General Partner, or additional items of deduction and loss away from the Unitholders and the General Partner to the holders of Incentive Distribution Rights, to the extent that the Additional Book Basis Derivative Items allocated to the Unitholders or the General Partner exceed their Share of Additional Book Basis Derivative Items. For this purpose, the Unitholders and the General Partner shall be treated as being allocated Additional Book Basis Derivative Items to the extent that such Additional Book Basis Derivative Items have reduced the amount of income that would otherwise have been allocated to the Unitholders or the General Partner under the Partnership Agreement (e.g., Additional Book Basis Derivative Items taken into account in computing cost of goods sold would reduce the amount of book income otherwise available for allocation among the Partners). Any allocation made pursuant to this Section 6.1(d)(xii)(A) shall be made after all of the other Agreed Allocations have been made as if this Section 6.1(d)(xii) were not in this Agreement and, to the extent necessary, shall require the reallocation of items that have been allocated pursuant to such other Agreed Allocations. (B) In the case of any negative adjustments to the Capital Accounts of the Partners resulting from a Book-Down Event or from the recognition of a Net 50

Termination Loss, such negative adjustment (1) shall first be allocated, to the extent of the Aggregate Remaining Net Positive Adjustments, in such a manner, as reasonably determined by the General Partner, that to the extent possible the aggregate Capital Accounts of the Partners will equal the amount which would have been the Capital Account balance of the Partners if no prior Book-Up Events had occurred, and (2) any negative adjustment in excess of the Aggregate Remaining Net Positive Adjustments shall be allocated pursuant to Section 6.1(c) hereof. (C) In making the allocations required under this Section 6.1(d)(xii), the General Partner, in its sole discretion, may apply whatever conventions or other methodology it deems reasonable to satisfy the purpose of this Section 6.1(d)(xii). (xiii) Allocation of Indemnified Losses. All losses, costs, penalties, damages, and expenses described in Section 3.1(a), 3.3 and 3.4(a) of the Omnibus Agreement, and all deductions and losses resulting from any payment made by the General Partner or its Affiliates to the Partnership pursuant to Article V of the Omnibus Agreement or any payment pursuant to Section 5.2, 5.4 or 5.5 of the Omnibus Agreement shall be allocated 100% to the General Partner. Section 6.2 Allocations for Tax Purposes. (a) Except as otherwise provided herein, for federal income tax purposes, each item of income, gain, loss and deduction shall be allocated among the Partners in the same manner as its correlative item of "book" income, gain, loss or deduction is allocated pursuant to Section 6.1. (b) In an attempt to eliminate Book-Tax Disparities attributable to a Contributed Property or Adjusted Property, items of income, gain, loss, depreciation, amortization and cost recovery deductions shall be allocated for federal income tax purposes among the Partners as follows: (i) (A) In the case of a Contributed Property, such items attributable thereto shall be allocated among the Partners in the manner provided under Section 704(c) of the Code that takes into account the variation between the Agreed Value of such property and its adjusted basis at the time of contribution; and (B) any item of Residual Gain or Residual Loss attributable to a Contributed Property shall be allocated among the Partners in the same manner as its correlative item of "book" gain or loss is allocated pursuant to Section 6.1. (ii) (A) In the case of an Adjusted Property, such items shall (1) first, be allocated among the Partners in a manner consistent with the principles of Section 704(c) of the Code to take into account the Unrealized Gain or Unrealized Loss attributable to such property and the allocations thereof pursuant to Section 5.5(d)(i) or 5.5(d)(ii), and (2) second, in the event such property was originally a Contributed Property, be allocated among the Partners in a manner consistent with Section 6.2(b)(i)(A); and (B) any item of Residual Gain or Residual Loss attributable to an Adjusted Property shall be allocated 51

among the Partners in the same manner as its correlative item of "book" gain or loss is allocated pursuant to Section 6.1. (iii) The General Partner shall apply the principles of Treasury Regulation Section 1.704-3(d) to eliminate Book-Tax Disparities. (c) For the proper administration of the Partnership and for the preservation of uniformity of the Limited Partner Interests (or any class or classes thereof), the General Partner shall have sole discretion to (i) adopt such conventions as it deems appropriate in determining the amount of depreciation, amortization and cost recovery deductions; (ii) make special allocations for federal income tax purposes of income (including, without limitation, gross income) or deductions; and (iii) amend the provisions of this Agreement as appropriate (x) to reflect the proposal or promulgation of Treasury Regulations under Section 704(b) or Section 704(c) of the Code or (y) otherwise to preserve or achieve uniformity of the Limited Partner Interests (or any class or classes thereof). The General Partner may adopt such conventions, make such allocations and make such amendments to this Agreement as provided in this Section 6.2(c) only if such conventions, allocations or amendments would not have a material adverse effect on the Partners, the holders of any class or classes of Limited Partner Interests issued and Outstanding or the Partnership, and if such allocations are consistent with the principles of Section 704 of the Code. (d) The General Partner in its discretion may determine to depreciate or amortize the portion of an adjustment under Section 743(b) of the Code attributable to unrealized appreciation in any Adjusted Property (to the extent of the unamortized Book-Tax Disparity) using a predetermined rate derived from the depreciation or amortization method and useful life applied to the Partnership's common basis of such property, despite any inconsistency of such approach with Treasury Regulation Section 1.167(c)-l(a)(6) or any successor regulations thereto. If the General Partner determines that such reporting position cannot reasonably be taken, the General Partner may adopt depreciation and amortization conventions under which all purchasers acquiring Limited Partner Interests in the same month would receive depreciation and amortization deductions, based upon the same applicable rate as if they had purchased a direct interest in the Partnership's property. If the General Partner chooses not to utilize such aggregate method, the General Partner may use any other reasonable depreciation and amortization conventions to preserve the uniformity of the intrinsic tax characteristics of any Limited Partner Interests that would not have a material adverse effect on the Limited Partners or the Record Holders of any class or classes of Limited Partner Interests. (e) Any gain allocated to the Partners upon the sale or other taxable disposition of any Partnership asset shall, to the extent possible, after taking into account other required allocations of gain pursuant to this Section 6.2, be characterized as Recapture Income in the same proportions and to the same extent as such Partners (or their predecessors in interest) have been allocated any deductions directly or indirectly giving rise to the treatment of such gains as Recapture Income. (f) All items of income, gain, loss, deduction and credit recognized by the Partnership for federal income tax purposes and allocated to the Partners in accordance with the provisions hereof shall be determined without regard to any election under Section 754 of the 52

Code which may be made by the Partnership; provided, however, that such allocations, once made, shall be adjusted as necessary or appropriate to take into account those adjustments permitted or required by Sections 734 and 743 of the Code. (g) Each item of Partnership income, gain, loss and deduction shall for federal income tax purposes, be determined on an annual basis and prorated on a monthly basis and shall be allocated to the Partners as of the opening of the New York Stock Exchange on the first Business Day of each month; provided, however, that (i) such items for the period beginning on the Closing Date and ending on the last day of the month in which the Option Closing Date or the expiration of the Over-allotment Option occurs shall be allocated to the Partners as of the opening of the New York Stock Exchange on the first Business Day of the next succeeding month; and provided, further, that gain or loss on a sale or other disposition of any assets of the Partnership or any other extraordinary item of income or loss realized and recognized other than in the ordinary course of business, as determined by the General Partner in its sole discretion, shall be allocated to the Partners as of the opening of the New York Stock Exchange on the first Business Day of the month in which such gain or loss is recognized for federal income tax purposes. The General Partner may revise, alter or otherwise modify such methods of allocation as it determines necessary or appropriate in its sole discretion, to the extent permitted or required by Section 706 of the Code and the regulations or rulings promulgated thereunder. (h) Allocations that would otherwise be made to a Limited Partner under the provisions of this Article VI shall instead be made to the beneficial owner of Limited Partner Interests held by a nominee in any case in which the nominee has furnished the identity of such owner to the Partnership in accordance with Section 6031(c) of the Code or any other method acceptable to the General Partner in its sole discretion. Section 6.3 Requirement and Characterization of Distributions; Distributions to Record Holders. (a) Within 45 days following the end of each Quarter commencing with the Quarter ending on March 31, 2002, an amount equal to 100% of Available Cash with respect to such Quarter shall, subject to Section 17-607 of the Delaware Act, be distributed in accordance with this Article VI by the Partnership to the Partners as of the Record Date selected by the General Partner in its reasonable discretion. All amounts of Available Cash distributed by the Partnership on any date from any source shall be deemed to be Operating Surplus until the sum of all amounts of Available Cash theretofore distributed by the Partnership to the Partners pursuant to Section 6.4 equals the Operating Surplus from the Closing Date through the close of the immediately preceding Quarter. Any remaining amounts of Available Cash distributed by the Partnership on such date shall, except as otherwise provided in Section 6.5, be deemed to be "Capital Surplus." All distributions required to be made under this Agreement shall be made subject to Section 17-607 of the Delaware Act. (b) Notwithstanding Section 6.3(a), in the event of the dissolution and liquidation of the Partnership, all receipts received during or after the Quarter in which the Liquidation Date occurs, other than from borrowings described in (a)(ii) of the definition of Available Cash, shall be applied and distributed solely in accordance with, and subject to the terms and conditions of, Section 12.4. 53

(c) The General Partner shall have the discretion to treat taxes paid by the Partnership on behalf of, or amounts withheld with respect to, all or less than all of the Partners, as a distribution of Available Cash to such Partners. (d) Each distribution in respect of a Partnership Interest shall be paid by the Partnership, directly or through the Transfer Agent or through any other Person or agent, only to the Record Holder of such Partnership Interest as of the Record Date set for such distribution. Such payment shall constitute full payment and satisfaction of the Partnership's liability in respect of such payment, regardless of any claim of any Person who may have an interest in such payment by reason of an assignment or otherwise. Section 6.4 Distributions of Available Cash from Operating Surplus. (a) During Subordination Period. Available Cash with respect to any Quarter within the Subordination Period that is deemed to be Operating Surplus pursuant to the provisions of Section 6.3 or 6.5 shall, subject to Section 17-607 of the Delaware Act, be distributed as follows, except as otherwise required by Section 5.6(b) in respect of additional Partnership Securities issued pursuant thereto: (i) First, 98% to the Unitholders holding Common Units, Pro Rata, and 2% to the General Partner, until there has been distributed in respect of each Common Unit then Outstanding an amount equal to the Minimum Quarterly Distribution for such Quarter; (ii) Second, 98% to the Unitholders holding Common Units, Pro Rata, and 2% to the General Partner, until there has been distributed in respect of each Common Unit then Outstanding an amount equal to the Cumulative Common Unit Arrearage existing with respect to such Quarter; (iii) Third, 98% to the Unitholders holding Subordinated Units, Pro Rata, and 2% to the General Partner, until there has been distributed in respect of each Subordinated Unit then Outstanding an amount equal to the Minimum Quarterly Distribution for such Quarter; (iv) Fourth, 98% to all Unitholders, Pro Rata, and 2% to the General Partner, until there has been distributed in respect of each Unit then Outstanding an amount equal to the excess of the First Target Distribution over the Minimum Quarterly Distribution for such Quarter; (v) Fifth, 85% to all Unitholders, Pro Rata, 13% to the holders of the Incentive Distribution Rights, Pro Rata, and 2% to the General Partner, until there has been distributed in respect of each Unit then Outstanding an amount equal to the excess of the Second Target Distribution over the First Target Distribution for such Quarter; (vi) Sixth, 75% to all Unitholders, Pro Rata, 23% to the holders of the Incentive Distribution Rights, Pro Rata, and 2% to the General Partner, until there has been distributed in respect of each Unit then Outstanding an amount equal to the excess of the Third Target Distribution over the Second Target Distribution for such Quarter; and 54

(vii) Thereafter, 50% to all Unitholders, Pro Rata, 48% to the holders of the Incentive Distribution Rights, Pro Rata, and 2% to the General Partner; provided, however, if the Minimum Quarterly Distribution, the First Target Distribution, the Second Target Distribution and the Third Target Distribution have been reduced to zero pursuant to the second sentence of Section 6.6(a), the distribution of Available Cash that is deemed to be Operating Surplus with respect to any Quarter will be made solely in accordance with Section 6.4(a)(vii). (b) After Subordination Period. Available Cash with respect to any Quarter after the Subordination Period that is deemed to be Operating Surplus pursuant to the provisions of Section 6.3 or 6.5, subject to Section 17-607 of the Delaware Act, shall be distributed as follows, except as otherwise required by Section 5.6(b) in respect of additional Partnership Securities issued pursuant thereto: (i) First, 98% to all Unitholders, Pro Rata, and 2% to the General Partner, until there has been distributed in respect of each Unit then Outstanding an amount equal to the Minimum Quarterly Distribution for such Quarter; (ii) Second, 98% to all Unitholders, Pro Rata, and 2% to the General Partner, until there has been distributed in respect of each Unit then Outstanding an amount equal to the excess of the First Target Distribution over the Minimum Quarterly Distribution for such Quarter; (iii) Third, 85% to all Unitholders, Pro Rata, and 13% to the holders of the Incentive Distribution Rights, Pro Rata, and 2% to the General Partner, until there has been distributed in respect of each Unit then Outstanding an amount equal to the excess of the Second Target Distribution over the First Target Distribution for such Quarter; (iv) Fourth, 75% to all Unitholders Pro Rata, and 23% to the holders of the Incentive Distribution Rights, Pro Rata, and 2% to the General Partner, until there has been distributed in respect of each Unit then Outstanding an amount equal to the excess of the Third Target Distribution over the Second Target Distribution for such Quarter; and (v) Thereafter, 50% to all Unitholders, Pro Rata, and 48% to the holders of the Incentive Distribution Rights, Pro Rata, and 2% to the General Partner; provided, however, if the Minimum Quarterly Distribution, the First Target Distribution, the Second Target Distribution and the Third Target Distribution have been reduced to zero pursuant to the second sentence of Section 6.6(a), the distribution of Available Cash that is deemed to be Operating Surplus with respect to any Quarter will be made solely in accordance with Section 6.4(b)(v). Section 6.5 Distributions of Available Cash from Capital Surplus. Available Cash that is deemed to be Capital Surplus pursuant to the provisions of Section 6.3(a) shall, subject to Section 17-607 of the Delaware Act, be distributed, unless the 55

provisions of Section 6.3 require otherwise, 98% to all Unitholders, Pro Rata, and 2% to the General Partner, until a hypothetical holder of a Common Unit acquired on the Closing Date has received with respect to such Common Unit, during the period since the Closing Date through such date, distributions of Available Cash that are deemed to be Capital Surplus in an aggregate amount equal to the Initial Unit Price. Available Cash that is deemed to be Capital Surplus shall then be distributed 98% to all Unitholders holding Common Units, Pro Rata, and 2% to the General Partner, until there has been distributed in respect of each Common Unit then Outstanding an amount equal to the Cumulative Common Unit Arrearage. Thereafter, all Available Cash shall be distributed as if it were Operating Surplus and shall be distributed in accordance with Section 6.4. Section 6.6 Adjustment of Minimum Quarterly Distribution and Target Distribution Levels. (a) The Minimum Quarterly Distribution, First Target Distribution, Second Target Distribution, Third Target Distribution, Common Unit Arrearages and Cumulative Common Unit Arrearages shall be proportionately adjusted in the event of any distribution, combination or subdivision (whether effected by a distribution payable in Units or otherwise) of Units or other Partnership Securities in accordance with Section 5.10. In the event of a distribution of Available Cash that is deemed to be from Capital Surplus, the then applicable Minimum Quarterly Distribution, First Target Distribution, Second Target Distribution and Third Target Distribution, shall be adjusted proportionately downward to equal the product obtained by multiplying the otherwise applicable Minimum Quarterly Distribution, First Target Distribution, Second Target Distribution and Third Target Distribution, as the case may be, by a fraction of which the numerator is the Unrecovered Capital of the Common Units immediately after giving effect to such distribution and of which the denominator is the Unrecovered Capital of the Common Units immediately prior to giving effect to such distribution. (b) The Minimum Quarterly Distribution, First Target Distribution, Second Target Distribution and Third Target Distribution, shall also be subject to adjustment pursuant to Section 6.9. Section 6.7 Special Provisions Relating to the Holders of Subordinated Units. (a) Except with respect to the right to vote on or approve matters requiring the vote or approval of a percentage of the holders of Outstanding Common Units and the right to participate in allocations of income, gain, loss and deduction and distributions made with respect to Common Units, the holder of a Subordinated Unit shall have all of the rights and obligations of a Unitholder holding Common Units hereunder; provided, however, that immediately upon the conversion of Subordinated Units into Common Units pursuant to Section 5.8, the Unitholder holding a Subordinated Unit shall possess all of the rights and obligations of a Unitholder holding Common Units hereunder, including the right to vote as a Common Unitholder and the right to participate in allocations of income, gain, loss and deduction and distributions made with respect to Common Units; provided, however, that such converted Subordinated Units shall remain subject to the provisions of Sections 5.5(c)(ii), 6.1(d)(x) and 6.7(b). 56

(b) The Unitholder holding a Subordinated Unit which has converted into a Common Unit pursuant to Section 5.8 shall not be issued a Common Unit Certificate pursuant to Section 4.1, and shall not be permitted to transfer its converted Subordinated Units to a Person which is not an Affiliate of the holder until such time as the General Partner determines, based on advice of counsel, that a converted Subordinated Unit should have, as a substantive matter, like intrinsic economic and federal income tax characteristics, in all material respects, to the intrinsic economic and federal income tax characteristics of an Initial Common Unit. In connection with the condition imposed by this Section 6.7(b), the General Partner may take whatever reasonable steps are required to provide economic uniformity to the converted Subordinated Units in preparation for a transfer of such converted Subordinated Units, including the application of Sections 5.5(c)(ii) and 6.1(d)(x); provided, however, that no such steps may be taken that would have a material adverse effect on the Unitholders holding Common Units represented by Common Unit Certificates. Section 6.8 Special Provisions Relating to the Holders of Incentive Distribution Rights. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary set forth in this Agreement, the holders of the Incentive Distribution Rights (a) shall (i) possess the rights and obligations provided in this Agreement with respect to a Limited Partner pursuant to Articles III and VII and (ii) have a Capital Account as a Partner pursuant to Section 5.5 and all other provisions related thereto and (b) shall not (i) be entitled to vote on any matters requiring the approval or vote of the holders of Outstanding Units, (ii) be entitled to any distributions other than as provided in Sections 6.4(a)(v), (vi) and (vii), 6.4(b)(iii), (iv) and (v), and 12.4 or (iii) be allocated items of income, gain, loss or deduction other than as specified in this Article VI. Section 6.9 Entity-Level Taxation. If legislation is enacted or the interpretation of existing language is modified by the relevant governmental authority which causes a Group Member to be treated as an association taxable as a corporation or otherwise subjects a Group Member to entity-level taxation for federal, state or local income tax purposes, the then applicable Minimum Quarterly Distribution, First Target Distribution, Second Target Distribution and Third Target Distribution, shall be adjusted to equal the product obtained by multiplying (a) the amount thereof by (b) one minus the sum of (i) the highest marginal federal corporate (or other entity, as applicable) income tax rate of the Group Member for the taxable year of the Group Member in which such Quarter occurs (expressed as a percentage) plus (ii) the effective overall state and local income tax rate (expressed as a percentage) applicable to the Group Member for the calendar year next preceding the calendar year in which such Quarter occurs (after taking into account the benefit of any deduction allowable for federal income tax purposes with respect to the payment of state and local income taxes), but only to the extent of the increase in such rates resulting from such legislation or interpretation. Such effective overall state and local income tax rate shall be determined for the taxable year next preceding the first taxable year during which the Group Member is taxable for federal income tax purposes as an association taxable as a corporation or is otherwise subject to entity-level taxation by determining such rate as if the Group Member had been subject to such state and local taxes during such preceding taxable year. 57

ARTICLE VII MANAGEMENT AND OPERATION OF BUSINESS Section 7.1 Management. (a) The General Partner shall conduct, direct and manage all activities of the Partnership. Except as otherwise expressly provided in this Agreement, all management powers over the business and affairs of the Partnership shall be exclusively vested in the General Partner, and no Limited Partner or Assignee shall have any management power over the business and affairs of the Partnership. In addition to the powers now or hereafter granted a general partner of a limited partnership under applicable law or which are granted to the General Partner under any other provision of this Agreement, the General Partner, subject to Section 7.3, shall have full power and authority to do all things and on such terms as it, in its sole discretion, may deem necessary or appropriate to conduct the business of the Partnership, to exercise all powers set forth in Section 2.5 and to effectuate the purposes set forth in Section 2.4, including the following: (i) the making of any expenditures, the lending or borrowing of money, the assumption or guarantee of, or other contracting for, indebtedness and other liabilities, the issuance of evidences of indebtedness, including indebtedness that is convertible into Partnership Securities, and the incurring of any other obligations; (ii) the making of tax, regulatory and other filings, or rendering of periodic or other reports to governmental or other agencies having jurisdiction over the business or assets of the Partnership; (iii) the acquisition, disposition, mortgage, pledge, encumbrance, hypothecation or exchange of any or all of the assets of the Partnership or the merger or other combination of the Partnership with or into another Person (the matters described in this clause (iii) being subject, however, to any prior approval that may be required by Section 7.3); (iv) the use of the assets of the Partnership (including cash on hand) for any purpose consistent with the terms of this Agreement, including the financing of the conduct of the operations of the Partnership Group; subject to Section 7.6(a), the lending of funds to other Persons (including the Operating Partnership); the repayment of obligations of the Partnership Group and the making of capital contributions to any member of the Partnership Group; (v) the negotiation, execution and performance of any contracts, conveyances or other instruments (including instruments that limit the liability of the Partnership under contractual arrangements to all or particular assets of the Partnership, with the other party to the contract to have no recourse against the General Partner or its assets other than its interest in the Partnership, even if same results in the terms of the transaction being less favorable to the Partnership than would otherwise be the case); (vi) the distribution of Partnership cash; 58

(vii) the selection and dismissal of employees (including employees having titles such as "president," "vice president," "secretary" and "treasurer") and agents, outside attorneys, accountants, consultants and contractors and the determination of their compensation and other terms of employment or hiring; (viii) the maintenance of such insurance for the benefit of the Partnership Group and the Partners as it deems necessary or appropriate; (ix) the formation of, or acquisition of an interest in, and the contribution of property and the making of loans to, any further limited or general partnerships, joint ventures, corporations, limited liability companies or other relationships (including the acquisition of interests in, and the contributions of property to, the Operating Partnership from time to time) subject to the restrictions set forth in Section 2.4; (x) the control of any matters affecting the rights and obligations of the Partnership, including the bringing and defending of actions at law or in equity and otherwise engaging in the conduct of litigation and the incurring of legal expense and the settlement of claims and litigation; (xi) the indemnification of any Person against liabilities and contingencies to the extent permitted by law; (xii) the entering into of listing agreements with any National Securities Exchange and the delisting of some or all of the Limited Partner Interests from, or requesting that trading be suspended on, any such exchange (subject to any prior approval that may be required under Section 4.8); (xiii) unless restricted or prohibited by Section 5.7, the purchase, sale or other acquisition or disposition of Partnership Securities, or the issuance of additional options, rights, warrants and appreciation rights relating to Partnership Securities; and (xiv) the undertaking of any action in connection with the Partnership's participation in the Operating Partnership or any other subsidiary of the Partnership as a member or partner. (b) Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, the Operating Partnership Agreement, the Delaware Act or any applicable law, rule or regulation, each of the Partners and the Assignees and each other Person who may acquire an interest in Partnership Securities hereby (i) approves, ratifies and confirms the execution, delivery and performance by the parties thereto of the Operating Partnership Agreement, the Underwriting Agreement, the Omnibus Agreement, the Contribution Agreement, the Pipelines and Terminals Storage and Throughput Agreement, the Indenture and the other agreements described in or filed as exhibits to the Registration Statement that are related to the transactions contemplated by the Registration Statement; (ii) agrees that the General Partner (on its own or through any officer of the Partnership) is authorized to execute, deliver and perform the agreements referred to in clause (i) of this sentence and the other agreements, acts, transactions and matters described in or contemplated by the Registration Statement on behalf of the Partnership without any further act, approval or vote of the Partners or the Assignees or the other Persons who may acquire an 59

interest in Partnership Securities; and (iii) agrees that the execution, delivery or performance by the General Partner, any Group Member or any Affiliate of any of them, of this Agreement or any agreement authorized or permitted under this Agreement (including the exercise by the General Partner or any Affiliate of the General Partner of the rights accorded pursuant to Article XV), shall not constitute a breach by the General Partner of any duty that the General Partner may owe the Partnership or the Limited Partners or any other Persons under this Agreement (or any other agreements) or of any duty stated or implied by law or equity. Section 7.2 Certificate of Limited Partnership. The General Partner has caused the Certificate of Limited Partnership to be filed with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware as required by the Delaware Act. The General Partner shall use all reasonable efforts to cause to be filed such other certificates or documents as may be determined by the General Partner in its sole discretion to be reasonable and necessary or appropriate for the formation, continuation, qualification and operation of a limited partnership (or a partnership in which the limited partners have limited liability) in the State of Delaware or any other state in which the Partnership may elect to do business or own property. To the extent that such action is determined by the General Partner in its sole discretion to be reasonable and necessary or appropriate, the General Partner shall file amendments to and restatements of the Certificate of Limited Partnership and do all things to maintain the Partnership as a limited partnership (or a partnership or other entity in which the limited partners have limited liability) under the laws of the State of Delaware or of any other state in which the Partnership may elect to do business or own property. Subject to the terms of Section 3.4(a), the General Partner shall not be required, before or after filing, to deliver or mail a copy of the Certificate of Limited Partnership, any qualification document or any amendment thereto to any Limited Partner. Section 7.3 Restrictions on the General Partner's Authority. (a) The General Partner may not, without written approval of the specific act by holders of all of the Outstanding Limited Partner Interests or by other written instrument executed and delivered by holders of all of the Outstanding Limited Partner Interests subsequent to the date of this Agreement, take any action in contravention of this Agreement, including, except as otherwise provided in this Agreement, (i) committing any act that would make it impossible to carry on the ordinary business of the Partnership; (ii) possessing Partnership property, or assigning any rights in specific Partnership property, for other than a Partnership purpose; (iii) admitting a Person as a Partner; (iv) amending this Agreement in any manner; or (v) transferring its interest as a general partner of the Partnership. (b) Except as provided in Articles XII and XIV, the General Partner may not sell, exchange or otherwise dispose of all or substantially all of the Partnership's assets in a single transaction or a series of related transactions (including by way of merger, consolidation or other combination) or approve on behalf of the Partnership the sale, exchange or other disposition of all or substantially all of the assets of the Operating Partnership without the approval of holders of a Unit Majority; provided however that this provision shall not preclude or limit the General Partner's ability to mortgage, pledge, hypothecate or grant a security interest in all or substantially all of the assets of the Partnership or the Operating Partnership and shall not apply to any forced sale of any or all of the assets of the Partnership or the Operating Partnership 60

pursuant to the foreclosure of, or other realization upon, any such encumbrance. Without the approval of holders of a Unit Majority, the General Partner shall not, on behalf of the Partnership, (i) consent to any amendment to the Operating Partnership Agreement or, except as expressly permitted by Section 7.9(d), take any action permitted to be taken by a partner of the Operating Partnership, in either case, that would adversely affect the Limited Partners (including any particular class of Partnership Interests as compared to any other class of Partnership Interests) in any material respect or (ii) except as permitted under Sections 4.6, 11.1 and 11.2, elect or cause the Partnership to elect a successor general partner of the Partnership. Section 7.4 Reimbursement of the General Partner. (a) Except as provided in this Section 7.4 and elsewhere in this Agreement, the General Partner shall not be compensated for its services as a general partner or managing member of any Group Member. (b) The General Partner shall be reimbursed on a monthly basis, or such other reasonable basis as the General Partner may determine in its sole discretion, for (i) all direct and indirect expenses it incurs or payments it makes on behalf of the Partnership (including salary, bonus, incentive compensation and other amounts paid to any Person including Affiliates of the General Partner to perform services for the Partnership or for the General Partner in the discharge of its duties to the Partnership), and (ii) all other necessary or appropriate expenses allocable to the Partnership or otherwise reasonably incurred by the General Partner in connection with operating the Partnership's business (including expenses allocated to the General Partner by its Affiliates). The General Partner shall determine the expenses that are allocable to the Partnership in any reasonable manner determined by the General Partner in its sole discretion. Reimbursements pursuant to this Section 7.4 shall be in addition to any reimbursement to the General Partner as a result of indemnification pursuant to Section 7.7. (c) Subject to Section 5.7, the General Partner, in its sole discretion and without the approval of the Limited Partners (who shall have no right to vote in respect thereof), may propose and adopt on behalf of the Partnership employee benefit plans, employee programs and employee practices (including plans, programs and practices involving the issuance of Partnership Securities or options to purchase Partnership Securities), or cause the Partnership to issue Partnership Securities in connection with, or pursuant to, any employee benefit plan, employee program or employee practice maintained or sponsored by the General Partner or any of its Affiliates, in each case for the benefit of employees of the General Partner, any Group Member or any Affiliate, or any of them, in respect of services performed, directly or indirectly, for the benefit of the Partnership Group. The Partnership agrees to issue and sell to the General Partner or any of its Affiliates any Partnership Securities that the General Partner or such Affiliates are obligated to provide to any employees pursuant to any such employee benefit plans, employee programs or employee practices. Expenses incurred by the General Partner in connection with any such plans, programs and practices (including the net cost to the General Partner or such Affiliates of Partnership Securities purchased by the General Partner or such Affiliates from the Partnership to fulfill options or awards under such plans, programs and practices) shall be reimbursed in accordance with Section 7.4(b). Any and all obligations of the General Partner under any employee benefit plans, employee programs or employee practices adopted by the General Partner as permitted by this Section 7.4(c) shall constitute obligations of 61

the General Partner hereunder and shall be assumed by any successor General Partner approved pursuant to Section 11.1 or 11.2 or the transferee of or successor to all of the General Partner's General Partner Interest pursuant to Section 4.6. Section 7.5 Outside Activities. (a) After the Closing Date, the General Partner, for so long as it is the General Partner of the Partnership (i) agrees that its sole business will be to act as a general partner or managing member, as the case may be, of the Partnership and any other partnership or limited liability company of which the Partnership or the Operating Partnership is, directly or indirectly, a partner or member and to undertake activities that are ancillary or related thereto (including being a limited partner in the Partnership), (ii) except to the extent permitted in the Omnibus Agreement, shall not engage in any business or activity or incur any debts or liabilities except in connection with or incidental to (A) its performance as general partner of one or more Group Members or as described in or contemplated by the Registration Statement, (B) the acquiring, owning or disposing of debt or equity securities in any Group Member or (C) the operation, maintenance and administration of the Retained Assets and the businesses conducted by or related to them and (iii) except to the extent permitted in the Omnibus Agreement, shall not, and shall cause its Affiliates not to, engage in any Restricted Activities. (b) Sunoco, Inc. and certain of its Affiliates have entered into the Omnibus Agreement with the General Partner, the Partnership and the Operating Partnership, which agreement sets forth certain restrictions on the ability of Sunoco, Inc. and its Affiliates to engage in Restricted Activities. (c) Except as specifically restricted by Section 7.5(a) and the Omnibus Agreement, each Indemnitee (other than the General Partner) shall have the right to engage in businesses of every type and description and other activities for profit and to engage in and possess an interest in other business ventures of any and every type or description, whether in businesses engaged in or anticipated to be engaged in by any Group Member, independently or with others, including business interests and activities in direct competition with the business and activities of any Group Member, and none of the same shall constitute a breach of this Agreement or any duty express or implied by law to any Group Member or any Partner or Assignee. Neither any Group Member, any Limited Partner nor any other Person shall have any rights by virtue of this Agreement, the Operating Partnership Agreement or the partnership relationship established hereby or thereby in any business ventures of any Indemnitee. (d) Subject to the terms of Section 7.5(a), Section 7.5(b), Section 7.5(c) and the Omnibus Agreement, but otherwise notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, (i) the engaging in competitive activities by any Indemnitees (other than the General Partner) in accordance with the provisions of this Section 7.5 is hereby approved by the Partnership and all Partners, (ii) it shall be deemed not to be a breach of the General Partner's fiduciary duty or any other obligation of any type whatsoever of the General Partner for the Indemnitees (other than the General Partner) to engage in such business interests and activities in preference to or to the exclusion of the Partnership and (iii) except as set forth in the Omnibus Agreement, the General Partner and the Indemnitees shall have no obligation to present business opportunities to the Partnership. 62

(e) The General Partner and any of its Affiliates may acquire Units or other Partnership Securities in addition to those acquired on the Closing Date and, except as otherwise provided in this Agreement, shall be entitled to exercise all rights of the General Partner or Limited Partner, as applicable, relating to such Units or Partnership Securities. (f) The term "Affiliates" when used in Section 7.5(a) and Section 7.5(e) with respect to the General Partner shall not include any Group Member or any Subsidiary of the Group Member. (g) Anything in this Agreement to the contrary notwithstanding, to the extent that provisions of Sections 7.7, 7.8, 7.9, 7.10 or other Sections of this Agreement purport or are interpreted to have the effect of restricting the fiduciary duties that might otherwise, as a result of Delaware or other applicable law, be owed by the General Partner to the Partnership and its Limited Partners, or to constitute a waiver or consent by the Limited Partners to any such restriction, such provisions shall be inapplicable and have no effect in determining whether the General Partner has complied with its fiduciary duties in connection with determinations made by it under this Section 7.5. Section7.6 Loans from the General Partner; Loans or Contributions from the Partnership; Contracts with Affiliates; Certain Restrictions on the General Partner. (a) The General Partner or any of its Affiliates may lend to any Group Member, and any Group Member may borrow from the General Partner or any of its Affiliates, funds needed or desired by the Group Member for such periods of time and in such amounts as the General Partner may determine; provided, however, that in any such case the lending party may not charge the borrowing party interest at a rate greater than the rate that would be charged the borrowing party or impose terms less favorable to the borrowing party than would be charged or imposed on the borrowing party by unrelated lenders on comparable loans made on an arm's-length basis (without reference to the lending party's financial abilities or guarantees). The borrowing party shall reimburse the lending party for any costs (other than any additional interest costs) incurred by the lending party in connection with the borrowing of such funds. For purposes of this Section 7.6(a) and Section 7.6(b), the term "Group Member" shall include any Affiliate of a Group Member that is controlled by the Group Member. No Group Member may lend funds to the General Partner or any of its Affiliates (other than another Group Member), otherwise than as provided in the Treasury Services Agreement. (b) The Partnership may lend or contribute to any Group Member, and any Group Member may borrow from the Partnership, funds on terms and conditions established in the sole discretion of the General Partner; provided, however, that the Partnership may not charge the Group Member interest at a rate less than the rate that would be charged to the Group Member (without reference to the General Partner's financial abilities or guarantees) by unrelated lenders on comparable loans. The foregoing authority shall be exercised by the General Partner in its sole discretion and shall not create any right or benefit in favor of any Group Member or any other Person. 63

(c) The General Partner may itself, or may enter into an agreement with any of its Affiliates to, render services to a Group Member or to the General Partner in the discharge of its duties as General Partner of the Partnership. Any services rendered to a Group Member by the General Partner or any of its Affiliates shall be on terms that are fair and reasonable to the Partnership; provided, however, that the requirements of this Section 7.6(c) shall be deemed satisfied as to (i) any transaction approved by Special Approval, (ii) any transaction, the terms of which are no less favorable to the Partnership Group than those generally being provided to or available from unrelated third parties or (iii) any transaction that, taking into account the totality of the relationships between the parties involved (including other transactions that may be particularly favorable or advantageous to the Partnership Group), is equitable to the Partnership Group. The provisions of Section 7.4 shall apply to the rendering of services described in this Section 7.6(c). (d) The Partnership Group may transfer assets to joint ventures, other partnerships, corporations, limited liability companies or other business entities in which it is or thereby becomes a participant upon such terms and subject to such conditions as are consistent with this Agreement and applicable law. (e) Neither the General Partner nor any of its Affiliates shall sell, transfer or convey any property to, or purchase any property from, the Partnership, directly or indirectly, except pursuant to transactions that are fair and reasonable to the Partnership; provided, however, that the requirements of this Section 7.6(e) shall be deemed to be satisfied as to (i) the transactions effected pursuant to Sections 5.2 and 5.3, the Contribution Agreement and any other transactions described in or contemplated by the Registration Statement, (ii) any transaction approved by Special Approval, (iii) any transaction, the terms of which are no less favorable to the Partnership than those generally being provided to or available from unrelated third parties, or (iv) any transaction that, taking into account the totality of the relationships between the parties involved (including other transactions that may be particularly favorable or advantageous to the Partnership), is equitable to the Partnership. With respect to any contribution of assets to the Partnership in exchange for Partnership Securities, the Conflicts Committee, in determining whether the appropriate number of Partnership Securities are being issued, may take into account, among other things, the fair market value of the assets, the liquidated and contingent liabilities assumed, the tax basis in the assets, the extent to which tax-only allocations to the transferor will protect the existing partners of the Partnership against a low tax basis, and such other factors as the Conflicts Committee deems relevant under the circumstances. (f) The General Partner and its Affiliates will have no obligation to permit any Group Member to use any facilities or assets of the General Partner and its Affiliates, except as may be provided in contracts entered into from time to time specifically dealing with such use, nor shall there be any obligation on the part of the General Partner or its Affiliates to enter into such contracts. (g) Without limitation of Sections 7.6(a) through 7.6(f), and notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, the existence of the conflicts of interest described in the Registration Statement are hereby approved by all Partners. 64

Section 7.7 Indemnification. (a) To the fullest extent permitted by law but subject to the limitations expressly provided in this Agreement, all Indemnitees shall be indemnified and held harmless by the Partnership from and against any and all losses, claims, damages, liabilities, joint or several, expenses (including legal fees and expenses), judgments, fines, penalties, interest, settlements or other amounts arising from any and all claims, demands, actions, suits or proceedings, whether civil, criminal, administrative or investigative, in which any Indemnitee may be involved, or is threatened to be involved, as a party or otherwise, by reason of its status as an Indemnitee; provided, that in each case the Indemnitee acted in good faith and in a manner that such Indemnitee reasonably believed to be in, or (in the case of a Person other than the General Partner) not opposed to, the best interests of the Partnership and, with respect to any criminal proceeding, had no reasonable cause to believe its conduct was unlawful; provided, further, no indemnification pursuant to this Section 7.7 shall be available to the General Partner with respect to its obligations incurred pursuant to the Underwriting Agreement, the Omnibus Agreement or the Contribution Agreement (other than obligations incurred by the General Partner on behalf of the Partnership). The termination of any action, suit or proceeding by judgment, order, settlement, conviction or upon a plea of nolo contendere, or its equivalent, shall not create a presumption that the Indemnitee acted in a manner contrary to that specified above. Any indemnification pursuant to this Section 7.7 shall be made only out of the assets of the Partnership, it being agreed that the General Partner shall not be personally liable for such indemnification and shall have no obligation to contribute or loan any monies or property to the Partnership to enable it to effectuate such indemnification. (b) To the fullest extent permitted by law, expenses (including legal fees and expenses) incurred by an Indemnitee who is indemnified pursuant to Section 7.7(a) in defending any claim, demand, action, suit or proceeding shall, from time to time, be advanced by the Partnership prior to the final disposition of such claim, demand, action, suit or proceeding upon receipt by the Partnership of any undertaking by or on behalf of the Indemnitee to repay such amount if it shall be determined that the Indemnitee is not entitled to be indemnified as authorized in this Section 7.7. (c) The indemnification provided by this Section 7.7 shall be in addition to any other rights to which an Indemnitee may be entitled under any agreement, pursuant to any vote of the holders of Outstanding Limited Partner Interests, as a matter of law or otherwise, both as to actions in the Indemnitee's capacity as an Indemnitee and as to actions in any other capacity (including any capacity under the Underwriting Agreement), and shall continue as to an Indemnitee who has ceased to serve in such capacity and shall inure to the benefit of the heirs, successors, assigns and administrators of the Indemnitee. (d) The Partnership may purchase and maintain (or reimburse the General Partner or its Affiliates for the cost of) insurance, on behalf of the General Partner, its Affiliates and such other Persons as the General Partner shall determine, against any liability that may be asserted against or expense that may be incurred by such Person in connection with the Partnership's activities or such Person's activities on behalf of the Partnership, regardless of whether the Partnership would have the power to indemnify such Person against such liability under the provisions of this Agreement. 65

(e) For purposes of this Section 7.7, the Partnership shall be deemed to have requested an Indemnitee to serve as fiduciary of an employee benefit plan whenever the performance by it of its duties to the Partnership also imposes duties on, or otherwise involves services by, it to the plan or participants or beneficiaries of the plan; excise taxes assessed on an Indemnitee with respect to an employee benefit plan pursuant to applicable law shall constitute "fines" within the meaning of Section 7.7(a); and action taken or omitted by it with respect to any employee benefit plan in the performance of its duties for a purpose reasonably believed by it to be in the interest of the participants and beneficiaries of the plan shall be deemed to be for a purpose which is in, or not opposed to, the best interests of the Partnership. (f) In no event may an Indemnitee subject the Limited Partners to personal liability by reason of the indemnification provisions set forth in this Agreement. (g) An Indemnitee shall not be denied indemnification in whole or in part under this Section 7.7 because the Indemnitee had an interest in the transaction with respect to which the indemnification applies if the transaction was otherwise permitted by the terms of this Agreement. (h) The provisions of this Section 7.7 are for the benefit of the Indemnitees, their heirs, successors, assigns and administrators and shall not be deemed to create any rights for the benefit of any other Persons. (i) No amendment, modification or repeal of this Section 7.7 or any provision hereof shall in any manner terminate, reduce or impair the right of any past, present or future Indemnitee to be indemnified by the Partnership, nor the obligations of the Partnership to indemnify any such Indemnitee under and in accordance with the provisions of this Section 7.7 as in effect immediately prior to such amendment, modification or repeal with respect to claims arising from or relating to matters occurring, in whole or in part, prior to such amendment, modification or repeal, regardless of when such claims may arise or be asserted. Section 7.8 Liability of Indemnitees. (a) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary set forth in this Agreement, no Indemnitee shall be liable for monetary damages to the Partnership, the Limited Partners, the Assignees or any other Persons who have acquired interests in the Partnership Securities, for losses sustained or liabilities incurred as a result of any act or omission if such Indemnitee acted in good faith. (b) Subject to its obligations and duties as General Partner set forth in Section 7.1(a), the General Partner may exercise any of the powers granted to it by this Agreement and perform any of the duties imposed upon it hereunder either directly or by or through its agents, and the General Partner shall not be responsible for any misconduct or negligence on the part of any such agent appointed by the General Partner in good faith. (c) To the extent that, at law or in equity, an Indemnitee has duties (including fiduciary duties) and liabilities relating thereto to the Partnership or to the Partners, the General Partner and any other Indemnitee acting in connection with the Partnership's business or affairs shall not be liable to the Partnership or to any Partner for its good faith reliance on the provisions 66

of this Agreement. The provisions of this Agreement, to the extent that they restrict or otherwise modify the duties and liabilities of an Indemnitee otherwise existing at law or in equity, are agreed by the Partners to replace such other duties and liabilities of such Indemnitee. (d) Any amendment, modification or repeal of this Section 7.8 or any provision hereof shall be prospective only and shall not in any way affect the limitations on the liability to the Partnership, the Limited Partners, the General Partner, and the Partnership's and General Partner's directors, officers and employees under this Section 7.8 as in effect immediately prior to such amendment, modification or repeal with respect to claims arising from or relating to matters occurring, in whole or in part, prior to such amendment, modification or repeal, regardless of when such claims may arise or be asserted. Section 7.9 Resolution of Conflicts of Interest. (a) Unless otherwise expressly provided in this Agreement or the Operating Partnership Agreement, whenever a potential conflict of interest exists or arises between the General Partner or any of its Affiliates, on the one hand, and the Partnership, the Operating Partnership, any Partner or any Assignee, on the other, any resolution or course of action by the General Partner or its Affiliates in respect of such conflict of interest shall be permitted and deemed approved by all Partners, and shall not constitute a breach of this Agreement, of the Operating Partnership Agreement, of any agreement contemplated herein or therein, or of any duty stated or implied by law or equity, if the resolution or course of action is, or by operation of this Agreement is deemed to be, fair and reasonable to the Partnership. The General Partner shall be authorized but not required in connection with its resolution of such conflict of interest to seek Special Approval of such resolution. Any such approval shall be subject to the presumption that, in making its decision, the Conflicts Committee acted on an informed basis, in good faith, and in the honest belief that the action taken was in the best interests of the Partnership, and in any proceeding brought by any Unitholder or by or on behalf of such Unitholder or any other Unitholders or the Partnership challenging such approval, the Person bringing or prosecuting such proceeding shall have the burden of overcoming such presumption. Any conflict of interest and any resolution of such conflict of interest shall be conclusively deemed fair and reasonable to the Partnership if such conflict of interest or resolution is (i) approved by Special Approval, (ii) on terms no less favorable to the Partnership than those generally being provided to or available from unrelated third parties or (iii) fair to the Partnership, taking into account the totality of the relationships between the parties involved (including other transactions that may be particularly favorable or advantageous to the Partnership). The General Partner may also adopt a resolution or course of action that has not received Special Approval. The General Partner (including the Conflicts Committee in connection with Special Approval) shall be authorized in connection with its determination of what is "fair and reasonable" to the Partnership and in connection with its resolution of any conflict of interest to consider (A) the relative interests of any party to such conflict, agreement, transaction or situation and the benefits and burdens relating to such interest; (B) any customary or accepted industry practices and any customary or historical dealings with a particular Person; (C) any applicable generally accepted accounting practices or principles; and (D) such additional factors as the General Partner (including the Conflicts Committee) determines in its sole discretion to be relevant, reasonable or appropriate under the circumstances. In any proceeding brought by any Unitholder by or on behalf of such Unitholder or any other Unitholders or the Partnership alleging that such a 67

resolution by the General Partner (and not by the Conflicts Committee, whose resolution shall be conclusive as provided above) is not fair to the Partnership, such Unitholder shall have the burden of proof of overcoming such conclusion. Nothing contained in this Agreement, however, is intended to nor shall it be construed to require the General Partner (including the Conflicts Committee) to consider the interests of any Person other than the Partnership. In the absence of bad faith by the General Partner, the resolution, action or terms so made, taken or provided by the General Partner with respect to such matter shall not constitute a breach of this Agreement or any other agreement contemplated herein or a breach of any standard of care or duty imposed herein or therein or, to the extent permitted by law, under the Delaware Act or any other law, rule or regulation. (b) Whenever this Agreement or any other agreement contemplated hereby provides that the General Partner or any of its Affiliates is permitted or required to make a decision (i) in its "sole discretion" or "discretion," that it deems "necessary or appropriate" or "necessary or advisable" or under a grant of similar authority or latitude, except as otherwise provided herein, the General Partner or such Affiliate shall be entitled to consider only such interests and factors as it desires and shall have no duty or obligation to give any consideration to any interest of, or factors affecting, the Partnership, the Operating Partnership, any Limited Partner or any Assignee, (ii) it may make such decision in its sole discretion (regardless of whether there is a reference to "sole discretion" or "discretion") unless another express standard is provided for, or (iii) in "good faith" or under another express standard, the General Partner or such Affiliate shall act under such express standard and shall not be subject to any other or different standards imposed by this Agreement, the Operating Partnership Agreement, any other agreement contemplated hereby or under the Delaware Act or any other law, rule or regulation. In addition, any actions taken by the General Partner or such Affiliate consistent with the standards of "reasonable discretion" set forth in the definitions of Available Cash or Operating Surplus shall not constitute a breach of any duty of the General Partner to the Partnership or the Limited Partners. The General Partner shall have no duty, express or implied, to sell or otherwise dispose of any asset of the Partnership Group other than in the ordinary course of business. No borrowing by any Group Member or the approval thereof by the General Partner shall be deemed to constitute a breach of any duty of the General Partner to the Partnership or the Limited Partners by reason of the fact that the purpose or effect of such borrowing is directly or indirectly to (A) enable distributions to the General Partner or its Affiliates (including in their capacities as Limited Partners) to exceed 2% of the total amount distributed to all partners or (B) hasten the expiration of the Subordination Period or the conversion of any Subordinated Units into Common Units. (c) Whenever a particular transaction, arrangement or resolution of a conflict of interest is required under this Agreement to be "fair and reasonable" to any Person, the fair and reasonable nature of such transaction, arrangement or resolution shall be considered in the context of all similar or related transactions. (d) The Unitholders hereby authorize the General Partner, on behalf of the Partnership as a partner or member of a Group Member, to approve of actions by the general partner or managing member of such Group Member similar to those actions permitted to be taken by the General Partner pursuant to this Section 7.9. 68

Section 7.10 Other Matters Concerning the General Partner. (a) The General Partner may rely and shall be protected in acting or refraining from acting upon any resolution, certificate, statement, instrument, opinion, report, notice, request, consent, order, bond, debenture or other paper or document believed by it to be genuine and to have been signed or presented by the proper party or parties. (b) The General Partner may consult with legal counsel, accountants, appraisers, management consultants, investment bankers and other consultants and advisers selected by it, and any act taken or omitted to be taken in reliance upon the opinion (including an Opinion of Counsel) of such Persons as to matters that the General Partner reasonably believes to be within such Person's professional or expert competence shall be conclusively presumed to have been done or omitted in good faith and in accordance with such opinion. (c) The General Partner shall have the right, in respect of any of its powers or obligations hereunder, to act through any of its duly authorized officers, a duly appointed attorney or attorneys-in-fact or the duly authorized officers of the Partnership. (d) Any standard of care and duty imposed by this Agreement or under the Delaware Act or any applicable law, rule or regulation shall be modified, waived or limited, to the extent permitted by law, as required to permit the General Partner to act under this Agreement or any other agreement contemplated by this Agreement and to make any decision pursuant to the authority prescribed in this Agreement, so long as such action is reasonably believed by the General Partner to be in, or not inconsistent with, the best interests of the Partnership. Section 7.11 Purchase or Sale of Partnership Securities. The General Partner may cause the Partnership to purchase or otherwise acquire Partnership Securities; provided that, except as permitted pursuant to Section 4.10, the General Partner may not cause any Group Member to purchase Subordinated Units during the Subordination Period. As long as Partnership Securities are held by any Group Member, such Partnership Securities shall not be considered Outstanding for any purpose, except as otherwise provided herein. The General Partner or any Affiliate of the General Partner may also purchase or otherwise acquire and sell or otherwise dispose of Partnership Securities for its own account, subject to the provisions of Articles IV and X. Section 7.12 Registration Rights of the General Partner and its Affiliates. (a) If (i) the General Partner or any Affiliate of the General Partner (including for purposes of this Section 7.12, any Person that is an Affiliate of the General Partner at the date hereof notwithstanding that it may later cease to be an Affiliate of the General Partner) holds Partnership Securities that it desires to sell and (ii) Rule 144 of the Securities Act (or any successor rule or regulation to Rule 144) or another exemption from registration is not available to enable such holder of Partnership Securities (the "Holder") to dispose of the number of Partnership Securities it desires to sell at the time it desires to do so without registration under the Securities Act, then upon the request of the General Partner or any of its Affiliates, the Partnership shall file with the Commission as promptly as practicable after receiving such request, and use all reasonable efforts to cause to become effective and remain effective for a 69

period of not less than six months following its effective date or such shorter period as shall terminate when all Partnership Securities covered by such registration statement have been sold, a registration statement under the Securities Act registering the offering and sale of the number of Partnership Securities specified by the Holder; provided, however, that the Partnership shall not be required to effect more than three registrations pursuant to this Section 7.12(a); and provided further, however, that if the Conflicts Committee determines in its good faith judgment that a postponement of the requested registration for up to six months would be in the best interests of the Partnership and its Partners due to a pending transaction, investigation or other event, the filing of such registration statement or the effectiveness thereof may be deferred for up to six months, but not thereafter. In connection with any registration pursuant to the immediately preceding sentence, the Partnership shall promptly prepare and file (x) such documents as may be necessary to register or qualify the securities subject to such registration under the securities laws of such states as the Holder shall reasonably request; provided, however, that no such qualification shall be required in any jurisdiction where, as a result thereof, the Partnership would become subject to general service of process or to taxation or qualification to do business as a foreign corporation or partnership doing business in such jurisdiction solely as a result of such registration, and (y) such documents as may be necessary to apply for listing or to list the Partnership Securities subject to such registration on such National Securities Exchange as the Holder shall reasonably request, and do any and all other acts and things that may reasonably be necessary or advisable to enable the Holder to consummate a public sale of such Partnership Securities in such states. Except as set forth in Section 7.12(c), all costs and expenses of any such registration and offering (other than the underwriting discounts and commissions) shall be paid by the Partnership, without reimbursement by the Holder. (b) If the Partnership shall at any time propose to file a registration statement under the Securities Act for an offering of equity securities of the Partnership for cash (other than an offering relating solely to an employee benefit plan), the Partnership shall use all reasonable efforts to include such number or amount of securities held by the Holder in such registration statement as the Holder shall request. If the proposed offering pursuant to this Section 7.12(b) shall be an underwritten offering, then, in the event that the managing underwriter or managing underwriters of such offering advise the Partnership and the Holder in writing that in their opinion the inclusion of all or some of the Holder's Partnership Securities would adversely and materially affect the success of the offering, the Partnership shall include in such offering only that number or amount, if any, of securities held by the Holder which, in the opinion of the managing underwriter or managing underwriters, will not so adversely and materially affect the offering. Except as set forth in Section 7.12(c), all costs and expenses of any such registration and offering (other than the underwriting discounts and commissions) shall be paid by the Partnership, without reimbursement by the Holder. (c) If underwriters are engaged in connection with any registration referred to in this Section 7.12, the Partnership shall provide indemnification, representations, covenants, opinions and other assurance to the underwriters in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to such underwriters. Further, in addition to and not in limitation of the Partnership's obligation under Section 7.7, the Partnership shall, to the fullest extent permitted by law, indemnify and hold harmless the Holder, its officers, directors and each Person who controls the Holder (within the meaning of the Securities Act) and any agent thereof (collectively, "Indemnified Persons") against any losses, claims, demands, actions, causes of action, assessments, damages, liabilities 70

(joint or several), costs and expenses (including interest, penalties and reasonable attorneys' fees and disbursements), resulting to, imposed upon, or incurred by the Indemnified Persons, directly or indirectly, under the Securities Act or otherwise (hereinafter referred to in this Section 7.12(c) as a "claim" and in the plural as "claims") based upon, arising out of or resulting from any untrue statement or alleged untrue statement of any material fact contained in any registration statement under which any Partnership Securities were registered under the Securities Act or any state securities or Blue Sky laws, in any preliminary prospectus (if used prior to the effective date of such registration statement), or in any summary or final prospectus or in any amendment or supplement thereto (if used during the period the Partnership is required to keep the registration statement current), or arising out of, based upon or resulting from the omission or alleged omission to state therein a material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements made therein not misleading; provided, however, that the Partnership shall not be liable to any Indemnified Person to the extent that any such claim arises out of, is based upon or results from an untrue statement or alleged untrue statement or omission or alleged omission made in such registration statement, such preliminary, summary or final prospectus or such amendment or supplement, in reliance upon and in conformity with written information furnished to the Partnership by or on behalf of such Indemnified Person specifically for use in the preparation thereof. (d) The provisions of Section 7.12(a) and 7.12(b) shall continue to be applicable with respect to the General Partner (and any of the General Partner's Affiliates) after it ceases to be a Partner of the Partnership, during a period of two years subsequent to the effective date of such cessation and for so long thereafter as is required for the Holder to sell all of the Partnership Securities with respect to which it has requested during such two-year period inclusion in a registration statement otherwise filed or that a registration statement be filed; provided, however, that the Partnership shall not be required to file successive registration statements covering the same Partnership Securities for which registration was demanded during such two-year period. The provisions of Section 7.12(c) shall continue in effect thereafter. (e) Any request to register Partnership Securities pursuant to this Section 7.12 shall (i) specify the Partnership Securities intended to be offered and sold by the Person making the request, (ii) express such Person's present intent to offer such shares for distribution, (iii) describe the nature or method of the proposed offer and sale of Partnership Securities, and (iv) contain the undertaking of such Person to provide all such information and materials and take all action as may be required in order to permit the Partnership to comply with all applicable requirements in connection with the registration of such Partnership Securities. Section 7.13 Reliance by Third Parties. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, any Person dealing with the Partnership shall be entitled to assume that the General Partner and any officer of the General Partner authorized by the General Partner to act on behalf of and in the name of the Partnership has full power and authority to encumber, sell or otherwise use in any manner any and all assets of the Partnership and to enter into any authorized contracts on behalf of the Partnership, and such Person shall be entitled to deal with the General Partner or any such officer as if it were the Partnership's sole party in interest, both legally and beneficially. Each Limited Partner hereby waives any and all defenses or other remedies that may be available against such Person to 71

contest, negate or disaffirm any action of the General Partner or any such officer in connection with any such dealing. In no event shall any Person dealing with the General Partner or any such officer or its representatives be obligated to ascertain that the terms of the Agreement have been complied with or to inquire into the necessity or expedience of any act or action of the General Partner or any such officer or its representatives. Each and every certificate, document or other instrument executed on behalf of the Partnership by the General Partner or its representatives shall be conclusive evidence in favor of any and every Person relying thereon or claiming thereunder that (a) at the time of the execution and delivery of such certificate, document or instrument, this Agreement was in full force and effect, (b) the Person executing and delivering such certificate, document or instrument was duly authorized and empowered to do so for and on behalf of the Partnership and (c) such certificate, document or instrument was duly executed and delivered in accordance with the terms and provisions of this Agreement and is binding upon the Partnership. ARTICLE VIII BOOKS, RECORDS, ACCOUNTING AND REPORTS Section 8.1 Records and Accounting. The General Partner shall keep or cause to be kept at the principal office of the Partnership appropriate books and records with respect to the Partnership's business, including all books and records necessary to provide to the Limited Partners any information required to be provided pursuant to Section 3.4(a). Any books and records maintained by or on behalf of the Partnership in the regular course of its business, including the record of the Record Holders and Assignees of Units or other Partnership Securities, books of account and records of Partnership proceedings, may be kept on, or be in the form of, computer disks, hard drives, punch cards, magnetic tape, photographs, micrographics or any other information storage device; provided, that the books and records so maintained are convertible into clearly legible written form within a reasonable period of time. The books of the Partnership shall be maintained, for financial reporting purposes, on an accrual basis in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Section 8.2 Fiscal Year. The fiscal year of the Partnership shall be a fiscal year ending December 31. Section 8.3 Reports. (a) As soon as practicable, but in no event later than 120 days after the close of each fiscal year of the Partnership, the General Partner shall cause to be mailed or made available to each Record Holder of a Unit as of a date selected by the General Partner in its discretion, an annual report containing financial statements of the Partnership for such fiscal year of the Partnership, presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP, including a balance sheet and statements of operations, Partnership equity and cash flows, such statements to be audited by a firm of independent public accountants selected by the General Partner. (b) As soon as practicable, but in no event later than 90 days after the close of each Quarter except the last Quarter of each fiscal year, the General Partner shall cause to be mailed 72

or made available to each Record Holder of a Unit, as of a date selected by the General Partner in its discretion, a report containing unaudited financial statements of the Partnership and such other information as may be required by applicable law, regulation or rule of any National Securities Exchange on which the Units are listed for trading, or as the General Partner determines to be necessary or appropriate. ARTICLE IX TAX MATTERS Section 9.1 Tax Returns and Information. The Partnership shall timely file all returns of the Partnership that are required for federal, state and local income tax purposes on the basis of the accrual method and a taxable year ending on December 31. The tax information reasonably required by Record Holders for federal and state income tax reporting purposes with respect to a taxable year shall be furnished to them within 90 days of the close of the calendar year in which the Partnership's taxable year ends. The classification, realization and recognition of income, gain, losses and deductions and other items shall be on the accrual method of accounting for federal income tax purposes. Section 9.2 Tax Elections. (a) The Partnership shall make the election under Section 754 of the Code in accordance with applicable regulations thereunder, subject to the reservation of the right to seek to revoke any such election upon the General Partner's determination that such revocation is in the best interests of the Limited Partners. Notwithstanding any other provision herein contained, for the purposes of computing the adjustments under Section 743(b) of the Code, the General Partner shall be authorized (but not required) to adopt a convention whereby the price paid by a transferee of a Limited Partner Interest will be deemed to be the lowest quoted closing price of the Limited Partner Interests on any National Securities Exchange on which such Limited Partner Interests are traded during the calendar month in which such transfer is deemed to occur pursuant to Section 6.2(g) without regard to the actual price paid by such transferee. (b) The Partnership shall elect to deduct expenses incurred in organizing the Partnership ratably over a sixty-month period as provided in Section 709 of the Code. (c) Except as otherwise provided herein, the General Partner shall determine whether the Partnership should make any other elections permitted by the Code. Section 9.3 Tax Controversies. Subject to the provisions hereof, the General Partner is designated as the Tax Matters Partner (as defined in the Code) and is authorized and required to represent the Partnership (at the Partnership's expense) in connection with all examinations of the Partnership's affairs by tax authorities, including resulting administrative and judicial proceedings, and to expend Partnership funds for professional services and costs associated therewith. Each Partner agrees to cooperate with the General Partner and to do or refrain from doing any or all things reasonably required by the General Partner to conduct such proceedings. 73

Section 9.4 Withholding. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, the General Partner is authorized to take any action that it determines in its discretion to be necessary or appropriate to cause the Partnership and the Operating Partnership to comply with any withholding requirements established under the Code or any other federal, state or local law including, without limitation, pursuant to Sections 1441, 1442, 1445 and 1446 of the Code. To the extent that the Partnership is required or elects to withhold and pay over to any taxing authority any amount resulting from the allocation or distribution of income to any Partner or Assignee (including, without limitation, by reason of Section 1446 of the Code), the amount withheld may at the discretion of the General Partner be treated by the Partnership as a distribution of cash pursuant to Section 6.3 in the amount of such withholding from such Partner. ARTICLE X ADMISSION OF PARTNERS Section 10.1 Admission of Initial Limited Partners. Upon the issuance by the Partnership of Common Units, Subordinated Units and Incentive Distribution Rights to the General Partner and the Underwriters as described in Section 5.3 in connection with the Initial Offering, the General Partner shall admit such parties to the Partnership as Initial Limited Partners in respect of the Common Units, Subordinated Units or Incentive Distribution Rights issued to them. Section 10.2 Admission of Substituted Limited Partner. By transfer of a Limited Partner Interest in accordance with Article IV, the transferor shall be deemed to have given the transferee the right to seek admission as a Substituted Limited Partner subject to the conditions of, and in the manner permitted under, this Agreement. A transferor of a Certificate representing a Limited Partner Interest shall, however, only have the authority to convey to a purchaser or other transferee who does not execute and deliver a Transfer Application (a) the right to negotiate such Certificate to a purchaser or other transferee and (b) the right to transfer the right to request admission as a Substituted Limited Partner to such purchaser or other transferee in respect of the transferred Limited Partner Interests. Each transferee of a Limited Partner Interest (including any nominee holder or an agent acquiring such Limited Partner Interest for the account of another Person) who executes and delivers a Transfer Application shall, by virtue of such execution and delivery, be an Assignee and be deemed to have applied to become a Substituted Limited Partner with respect to the Limited Partner Interests so transferred to such Person. Such Assignee shall become a Substituted Limited Partner (x) at such time as the General Partner consents thereto, which consent may be given or withheld in the General Partner's discretion, and (y) when any such admission is shown on the books and records of the Partnership. If such consent is withheld, such transferee shall be an Assignee. An Assignee shall have an interest in the Partnership equivalent to that of a Limited Partner with respect to allocations and distributions, including liquidating distributions, of the Partnership. With respect to voting rights attributable to Limited Partner Interests that are held by Assignees, the General Partner shall be deemed to be the Limited Partner with respect thereto 74

and shall, in exercising the voting rights in respect of such Limited Partner Interests on any matter, vote such Limited Partner Interests at the written direction of the Assignee who is the Record Holder of such Limited Partner Interests. If no such written direction is received, such Limited Partner Interests will not be voted. An Assignee shall have no other rights of a Limited Partner. Section 10.3 Admission of Successor General Partner. A successor General Partner approved pursuant to Section 11.1 or 11.2 or the transferee of or successor to all of the General Partner Interest pursuant to Section 4.6 who is proposed to be admitted as a successor General Partner shall be admitted to the Partnership as the General Partner, effective immediately prior to the withdrawal or removal of the predecessor or transferring General Partner, pursuant to Section 11.1 or 11.2 or the transfer of the General Partner Interest pursuant to Section 4.6, provided, however, that no such successor shall be admitted to the Partnership until compliance with the terms of Section 4.6 has occurred and such successor has executed and delivered such other documents or instruments as may be required to effect such admission. Any such successor shall, subject to the terms hereof, carry on the business of the members of the Partnership Group without dissolution. Section 10.4 Admission of Additional Limited Partners. (a) A Person (other than the General Partner, an Initial Limited Partner or a Substituted Limited Partner) who makes a Capital Contribution to the Partnership in accordance with this Agreement shall be admitted to the Partnership as an Additional Limited Partner only upon furnishing to the General Partner (i) evidence of acceptance in form satisfactory to the General Partner of all of the terms and conditions of this Agreement, including the power of attorney granted in Section 2.6, and (ii) such other documents or instruments as may be required in the discretion of the General Partner to effect such Person's admission as an Additional Limited Partner. (b) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Section 10.4, no Person shall be admitted as an Additional Limited Partner without the consent of the General Partner, which consent may be given or withheld in the General Partner's discretion. The admission of any Person as an Additional Limited Partner shall become effective on the date upon which the name of such Person is recorded as such in the books and records of the Partnership, following the consent of the General Partner to such admission. Section 10.5 Amendment of Agreement and Certificate of Limited Partnership. To effect the admission to the Partnership of any Partner, the General Partner shall take all steps necessary and appropriate under the Delaware Act to amend the records of the Partnership to reflect such admission and, if necessary, to prepare as soon as practicable an amendment to this Agreement and, if required by law, the General Partner shall prepare and file 75

an amendment to the Certificate of Limited Partnership, and the General Partner may for this purpose, among others, exercise the power of attorney granted pursuant to Section 2.6. ARTICLE XI WITHDRAWAL OR REMOVAL OF PARTNERS Section 11.1 Withdrawal of the General Partner. (a) The General Partner shall be deemed to have withdrawn from the Partnership upon the occurrence of any one of the following events (each such event herein referred to as an "Event of Withdrawal"); (i) The General Partner voluntarily withdraws from the Partnership by giving written notice to the other Partners; (ii) The General Partner transfers all of its rights as General Partner pursuant to Section 4.6; (iii) The General Partner is removed pursuant to Section 11.2; (iv) The General Partner (A) makes a general assignment for the benefit of creditors; (B) files a voluntary bankruptcy petition for relief under Chapter 7 of the United States Bankruptcy Code; (C) files a petition or answer seeking for itself a liquidation, dissolution or similar relief (but not a reorganization) under any law; (D) files an answer or other pleading admitting or failing to contest the material allegations of a petition filed against the General Partner in a proceeding of the type described in clauses (A)-(C) of this Section 11.1(a)(iv); or (E) seeks, consents to or acquiesces in the appointment of a trustee (but not a debtor-in-possession), receiver or liquidator of the General Partner or of all or any substantial part of its properties; (v) A final and non-appealable order of relief under Chapter 7 of the United States Bankruptcy Code is entered by a court with appropriate jurisdiction pursuant to a voluntary or involuntary petition by or against the General Partner; or (vi) (A) in the event the General Partner is a corporation, a certificate of dissolution or its equivalent is filed for the General Partner, or 90 days expire after the date of notice to the General Partner of revocation of its charter without a reinstatement of its charter, under the laws of its state of incorporation; (B) in the event the General Partner is a partnership or a limited liability company, the dissolution and commencement of winding up of the General Partner; (C) in the event the General Partner is acting in such capacity by virtue of being a trustee of a trust, the termination of the trust; (D) in the event the General Partner is a natural person, his death or adjudication of incompetency; and (E) otherwise in the event of the termination of the General Partner. If an Event of Withdrawal specified in Section 11.1(a)(iv), (v) or (vi)(A), (B), (C) or (E) occurs, the withdrawing General Partner shall give notice to the Limited Partners within 30 days after 76

such occurrence. The Partners hereby agree that only the Events of Withdrawal described in this Section 11.1 shall result in the withdrawal of the General Partner from the Partnership. (b) Withdrawal of the General Partner from the Partnership upon the occurrence of an Event of Withdrawal shall not constitute a breach of this Agreement under the following circumstances: (i) at any time during the period beginning on the Closing Date and ending at 12:00 midnight, Eastern Standard Time, on December 31, 2011, the General Partner voluntarily withdraws by giving at least 90 days' advance notice of its intention to withdraw to the Limited Partners; provided that prior to the effective date of such withdrawal, the withdrawal is approved by Unitholders holding at least a majority of the Outstanding Common Units (excluding Common Units held by the General Partner and its Affiliates) and the General Partner delivers to the Partnership an Opinion of Counsel ("Withdrawal Opinion of Counsel") that such withdrawal (following the selection of the successor General Partner) would not result in the loss of the limited liability of any Limited Partner or any Group Member or cause any Group Member to be treated as an association taxable as a corporation or otherwise to be taxed as an entity for federal income tax purposes (to the extent not previously treated as such); (ii) at any time after 12:00 midnight, Eastern Standard Time, on December 31, 2011, the General Partner voluntarily withdraws by giving at least 90 days' advance notice to the Unitholders, such withdrawal to take effect on the date specified in such notice; (iii) at any time that the General Partner ceases to be the General Partner pursuant to Section 11.1(a)(ii) or is removed pursuant to Section 11.2; or (iv) notwithstanding clause (i) of this sentence, at any time that the General Partner voluntarily withdraws by giving at least 90 days' advance notice of its intention to withdraw to the Limited Partners, such withdrawal to take effect on the date specified in the notice, if at the time such notice is given one Person and its Affiliates (other than the General Partner and its Affiliates) own beneficially or of record or control at least 50% of the Outstanding Units. The withdrawal of the General Partner from the Partnership upon the occurrence of an Event of Withdrawal shall also constitute the withdrawal of the General Partner as general partner or managing member, to the extent applicable, of the other Group Members. If the General Partner gives a notice of withdrawal pursuant to Section 11.1(a)(i), the holders of a Unit Majority, may, prior to the effective date of such withdrawal, elect a successor General Partner. The Person so elected as successor General Partner shall automatically become the successor general partner or managing member, to the extent applicable, of the other Group Members of which the General Partner is a general partner or a managing member. If, prior to the effective date of the General Partner's withdrawal, a successor is not selected by the Unitholders as provided herein or the Partnership does not receive a Withdrawal Opinion of Counsel, the Partnership shall be dissolved in accordance with Section 12.1. Any successor General Partner elected in accordance with the terms of this Section 11.1 shall be subject to the provisions of Section 10.3. Section 11.2 Removal of the General Partner. The General Partner may be removed if such removal is approved by the Unitholders holding at least 66 2/3% of the Outstanding Units (including Units held by the General Partner and its Affiliates). Any such action by such holders for removal of the General Partner must also provide for the election of a successor General Partner by the Unitholders holding a majority of the outstanding Common Units voting as a class and a majority of the outstanding Subordinated Units voting as a class (including Units held by the General Partner and its Affiliates). Such removal shall be effective immediately following the admission of a successor General Partner 77

pursuant to Section 10.3. The removal of the General Partner shall also automatically constitute the removal of the General Partner as general partner or managing member, to the extent applicable, of the other Group Members of which the General Partner is a general partner or a managing member. If a Person is elected as a successor General Partner in accordance with the terms of this Section 11.2, such Person shall, upon admission pursuant to Section 10.3, automatically become a successor general partner or managing member, to the extent applicable, of the other Group Members of which the General Partner is a general partner or a managing member. The right of the holders of Outstanding Units to remove the General Partner shall not exist or be exercised unless the Partnership has received an opinion opining as to the matters covered by a Withdrawal Opinion of Counsel. Any successor General Partner elected in accordance with the terms of this Section 11.2 shall be subject to the provisions of Section 10.3. Section 11.3 Interest of Departing Partner and Successor General Partner. (a) In the event of (i) withdrawal of the General Partner under circumstances where such withdrawal does not violate this Agreement or (ii) removal of the General Partner by the holders of Outstanding Units under circumstances where Cause does not exist, if the successor General Partner is elected in accordance with the terms of Section 11.1 or 11.2, the Departing Partner shall have the option, exercisable prior to the effective date of the departure of such Departing Partner, to require its successor to purchase its General Partner Interest and its general partner interest (or equivalent interest) in the other Group Members and all of its Incentive Distribution Rights (collectively, the "Combined Interest") in exchange for an amount in cash equal to the fair market value of such Combined Interest, such amount to be determined and payable as of the effective date of its departure. If the General Partner is removed by the Unitholders under circumstances where Cause exists or if the General Partner withdraws under circumstances where such withdrawal violates this Agreement, and if a successor General Partner is elected in accordance with the terms of Section 11.1 or 11.2, such successor shall have the option, exercisable prior to the effective date of the departure of such Departing Partner, to purchase the Combined Interest for such fair market value of such Combined Interest of the Departing Partner. In either event, the Departing Partner shall be entitled to receive all reimbursements due such Departing Partner pursuant to Section 7.4, including any employee-related liabilities (including severance liabilities), incurred in connection with the termination of any employees employed by the Departing Partner for the benefit of the Partnership or the other Group Members. For purposes of this Section 11.3(a), the fair market value of the Departing Partner's Combined Interest shall be determined by agreement between the Departing Partner and its successor or, failing agreement within 30 days after the effective date of such Departing Partner's departure, by an independent investment banking firm or other independent expert selected by the Departing Partner and its successor, which, in turn, may rely on other experts, and the determination of which shall be conclusive as to such matter. If such parties cannot agree upon one independent investment banking firm or other independent expert within 45 days after the effective date of such departure, then the Departing Partner shall designate an independent investment banking firm or other independent expert, the Departing Partner's successor shall designate an independent investment banking firm or other independent expert, and such firms or experts shall mutually select a third independent investment banking firm or independent expert, which third independent investment banking firm or other independent expert shall determine the 78

fair market value of the Combined Interest of the Departing Partner. In making its determination, such third independent investment banking firm or other independent expert may consider the then current trading price of Units on any National Securities Exchange on which Units are then listed, the value of the Partnership's assets, the rights and obligations of the Departing Partner and other factors it may deem relevant. (b) If the Combined Interest is not purchased in the manner set forth in Section 11.3(a), the Departing Partner (or its transferee) shall become a Limited Partner and its Combined Interest shall be converted into Common Units pursuant to a valuation made by an investment banking firm or other independent expert selected pursuant to Section 11.3(a), without reduction in such Partnership Interest (but subject to proportionate dilution by reason of the admission of its successor). Any successor General Partner shall indemnify the Departing Partner (or its transferee) as to all debts and liabilities of the Partnership arising on or after the date on which the Departing Partner (or its transferee) becomes a Limited Partner. For purposes of this Agreement, conversion of the Combined Interest of the Departing Partner to Common Units will be characterized as if the Departing Partner (or its transferee) contributed its Combined Interest to the Partnership in exchange for the newly issued Common Units. (c) If a successor General Partner is elected in accordance with the terms of Section 11.1 or 11.2 and the option described in Section 11.3(a) is not exercised by the party entitled to do so, the successor General Partner shall, at the effective date of its admission to the Partnership, contribute to the Partnership cash in the amount equal to 2/98ths of the Net Agreed Value of the Partnership's assets on such date. In such event, such successor General Partner shall, subject to the following sentence, be entitled to 2% of all Partnership allocations and distributions to which the Departing Partner was entitled. In addition, the successor General Partner shall cause this Agreement to be amended to reflect that, from and after the date of such successor General Partner's admission, the successor General Partner's interest in all Partnership distributions and allocations shall be 2%. Section 11.4 Termination of Subordination Period, Conversion of Subordinated Units and Extinguishment of Cumulative Common Unit Arrearages. Notwithstanding any provision of this Agreement, if the General Partner is removed as general partner of the Partnership under circumstances where Cause does not exist and Units held by the General Partner and its Affiliates are not voted in favor of such removal, (i) the Subordination Period will end and all Outstanding Subordinated Units will immediately and automatically convert into Common Units on a one-for-one basis and (ii) all Cumulative Common Unit Arrearages on the Common Units will be extinguished. Section 11.5 Withdrawal of Limited Partners. No Limited Partner shall have any right to withdraw from the Partnership; provided, however, that when a transferee of a Limited Partner's Limited Partner Interest becomes a Record Holder of the Limited Partner Interest so transferred, such transferring Limited Partner shall cease to be a Limited Partner with respect to the Limited Partner Interest so transferred. 79

ARTICLE XII DISSOLUTION AND LIQUIDATION Section 12.1 Dissolution. The Partnership shall not be dissolved by the admission of Substituted Limited Partners or Additional Limited Partners or by the admission of a successor General Partner in accordance with the terms of this Agreement. Upon the removal or withdrawal of the General Partner, if a successor General Partner is elected pursuant to Section 11.1 or 11.2, the Partnership shall not be dissolved and such successor General Partner shall continue the business of the Partnership. The Partnership shall dissolve, and (subject to Section 12.2) its affairs shall be wound up, upon: (a) an Event of Withdrawal of the General Partner as provided in Section 11.1(a) (other than Section 11.1(a)(ii)), unless a successor is elected and an Opinion of Counsel is received as provided in Section 11.1(b) or 11.2 and such successor is admitted to the Partnership pursuant to Section 10.3; (b) an election to dissolve the Partnership by the General Partner that is approved by the holders of a Unit Majority; (c) the entry of a decree of judicial dissolution of the Partnership pursuant to the provisions of the Delaware Act; or (d) the sale of all or substantially all of the assets and properties of the Partnership Group. Section 12.2 Continuation of the Business of the Partnership After Dissolution. Upon (a) dissolution of the Partnership following an Event of Withdrawal caused by the withdrawal or removal of the General Partner as provided in Section 11.1(a)(i) or (iii) and the failure of the Partners to select a successor to such Departing Partner pursuant to Section 11.1 or 11.2, then within 90 days thereafter, or (b) dissolution of the Partnership upon an event constituting an Event of Withdrawal as defined in Section 11.1(a)(iv), (v) or (vi), then, to the maximum extent permitted by law, within 180 days thereafter, the holders of a Unit Majority may elect to reconstitute the Partnership and continue its business on the same terms and conditions set forth in this Agreement by forming a new limited partnership on terms identical to those set forth in this Agreement and having as the successor General partner a Person approved by the holders of a Unit Majority. Unless such an election is made within the applicable time period as set forth above, the Partnership shall conduct only activities necessary to wind up its affairs. If such an election is so made, then: (i) the reconstituted Partnership shall continue unless earlier dissolved in accordance with this Article XII; (ii) if the successor General Partner is not the former General Partner, then the interest of the former General Partner shall be treated in the manner provided in Section 11.3; and 80

(iii) all necessary steps shall be taken to cancel this Agreement and the Certificate of Limited Partnership and to enter into and, as necessary, to file a new partnership agreement and certificate of limited partnership, and the successor General Partner may for this purpose exercise the powers of attorney granted the General Partner pursuant to Section 2.6; provided, that the right of the holders of a Unit Majority to approve a successor General Partner and to reconstitute and to continue the business of the Partnership shall not exist and may not be exercised unless the Partnership has received an Opinion of Counsel that (x) the exercise of the right would not result in the loss of limited liability of any Limited Partner and (y) neither the Partnership, the reconstituted limited partnership nor the Operating Partnership or any other Group Member would be treated as an association taxable as a corporation or otherwise be taxable as an entity for federal income tax purposes upon the exercise of such right to continue. Section 12.3 Liquidator. Upon dissolution of the Partnership, unless the Partnership is continued under an election to reconstitute and continue the Partnership pursuant to Section 12.2, the General Partner shall select one or more Persons to act as Liquidator. The Liquidator (if other than the General Partner) shall be entitled to receive such compensation for its services as may be approved by holders of at least a majority of the Outstanding Common Units and Subordinated Units voting as a single class. The Liquidator (if other than the General Partner) shall agree not to resign at any time without 15 days' prior notice and may be removed at any time, with or without cause, by notice of removal approved by holders of at least a majority of the Outstanding Common Units and Subordinated Units voting as a single class. Upon dissolution, removal or resignation of the Liquidator, a successor and substitute Liquidator (who shall have and succeed to all rights, powers and duties of the original Liquidator) shall within 30 days thereafter be approved by holders of at least a majority of the Outstanding Common Units and Subordinated Units voting as a single class. The right to approve a successor or substitute Liquidator in the manner provided herein shall be deemed to refer also to any such successor or substitute Liquidator approved in the manner herein provided. Except as expressly provided in this Article XII, the Liquidator approved in the manner provided herein shall have and may exercise, without further authorization or consent of any of the parties hereto, all of the powers conferred upon the General Partner under the terms of this Agreement (but subject to all of the applicable limitations, contractual and otherwise, upon the exercise of such powers, other than the limitation on sale set forth in Section 7.3(b)) to the extent necessary or desirable in the good faith judgment of the Liquidator to carry out the duties and functions of the Liquidator hereunder for and during such period of time as shall be reasonably required in the good faith judgment of the Liquidator to complete the winding up and liquidation of the Partnership as provided for herein. Section 12.4 Liquidation. The Liquidator shall proceed to dispose of the assets of the Partnership, discharge its liabilities, and otherwise wind up its affairs in such manner and over such period as the Liquidator determines to be in the best interest of the Partners, subject to Section 17-804 of the Delaware Act and the following: 81

(a) The assets may be disposed of by public or private sale or by distribution in kind to one or more Partners on such terms as the Liquidator and such Partner or Partners may agree. If any property is distributed in kind, the Partner receiving the property shall be deemed for purposes of Section 12.4(c) to have received cash equal to its fair market value; and contemporaneously therewith, appropriate cash distributions must be made to the other Partners. The Liquidator may, in its absolute discretion, defer liquidation or distribution of the Partnership's assets for a reasonable time if it determines that an immediate sale or distribution of all or some of the Partnership's assets would be impractical or would cause undue loss to the Partners. The Liquidator may, in its absolute discretion, distribute the Partnership's assets, in whole or in part, in kind if it determines that a sale would be impractical or would cause undue loss to the Partners. (b) Liabilities of the Partnership include amounts owed to the Liquidator as compensation for serving in such capacity (subject to the terms of Section 12.3) and amounts to Partners otherwise than in respect of their distribution rights under Article VI. With respect to any liability that is contingent, conditional or unmatured or is otherwise not yet due and payable, the Liquidator shall either settle such claim for such amount as it thinks appropriate or establish a reserve of cash or other assets to provide for its payment. When paid, any unused portion of the reserve shall be distributed as additional liquidation proceeds. (c) All property and all cash in excess of that required to discharge liabilities as provided in Section 12.4(b) shall be distributed to the Partners in accordance with, and to the extent of, the positive balances in their respective Capital Accounts, as determined after taking into account all Capital Account adjustments (other than those made by reason of distributions pursuant to this Section 12.4(c)) for the taxable year of the Partnership during which the liquidation of the Partnership occurs (with such date of occurrence being determined pursuant to Treasury Regulation Section 1.704-1(b)(2)(ii)(g)), and such distribution shall be made by the end of such taxable year (or, if later, within 90 days after said date of such occurrence). Section 12.5 Cancellation of Certificate of Limited Partnership. Upon the completion of the distribution of Partnership cash and property as provided in Section 12.4 in connection with the liquidation of the Partnership, the Partnership shall be terminated and the Certificate of Limited Partnership and all qualifications of the Partnership as a foreign limited partnership in jurisdictions other than the State of Delaware shall be canceled and such other actions as may be necessary to terminate the Partnership shall be taken. Section 12.6 Return of Contributions. The General Partner shall not be personally liable for, and shall have no obligation to contribute or loan any monies or property to the Partnership to enable it to effectuate, the return of the Capital Contributions of the Limited Partners or Unitholders, or any portion thereof, it being expressly understood that any such return shall be made solely from Partnership assets. Section 12.7 Waiver of Partition. To the maximum extent permitted by law, each Partner hereby waives any right to partition of the Partnership property. 82

Section 12.8 Capital Account Restoration. No Limited Partner shall have any obligation to restore any negative balance in its Capital Account upon liquidation of the Partnership. The General Partner shall be obligated to restore any negative balance in its Capital Account upon liquidation of its interest in the Partnership by the end of the taxable year of the Partnership during which such liquidation occurs, or, if later, within 90 days after the date of such liquidation.

Amendments to this Agreement may be proposed only by or with the consent of the General Partner which consent may be given or withheld in its sole discretion.

Section 13.3 Amendment Requirements. (a) Notwithstanding the provisions of Sections 13.1 and 13.2, no provision of this Agreement that establishes a percentage of Outstanding Units (including Units deemed owned by the General Partner) required to take any action shall be amended, altered, changed, repealed or rescinded in any respect that would have the effect of reducing such voting percentage unless such amendment is approved by the written consent or the affirmative vote of holders of Outstanding Units whose aggregate Outstanding Units constitute not less than the voting requirement sought to be reduced. (b) Notwithstanding the provisions of Sections 13.1 and 13.2, no amendment to this Agreement may (i) enlarge the obligations of any Limited Partner without its consent, unless such shall be deemed to have occurred as a result of an amendment approved pursuant to Section 13.3(c), (ii) enlarge the obligations of, restrict in any way any action by or rights of, or reduce in any way the amounts distributable, reimbursable or otherwise payable to, the General Partner or any of its Affiliates without its consent, which consent may be given or withheld in its sole discretion, (iii) change Section 12.1(b), or (iv) change the term of the Partnership or, except as set forth in Section 12.1(b), give any Person the right to dissolve the Partnership. (c) Except as provided in Section 14.3, and without limitation of the General Partner's authority to adopt amendments to this Agreement without the approval of any Partners or Assignees as contemplated in Section 13.1, any amendment that would have a material adverse effect on the rights or preferences of any class of Partnership Interests in relation to other classes of Partnership Interests must be approved by the holders of not less than a majority of the Outstanding Partnership Interests of the class affected. (d) Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, except for amendments pursuant to Section 13.1 and except as otherwise provided by Section 14.3(b), no amendments shall become effective without the approval of the holders of at least 90% of the Outstanding Units voting as a single class unless the Partnership obtains an Opinion of Counsel to the effect that such amendment will not affect the limited liability of any Limited Partner under applicable law. (e) Except as provided in Section 13.1, this Section 13.3 shall only be amended with the approval of the holders of at least 90% of the Outstanding Units. Section 13.4 Special Meetings. All acts of Limited Partners to be taken pursuant to this Agreement shall be taken in the manner provided in this Article XIII. Special meetings of the Limited Partners may be called by the General Partner or by Limited Partners owning 20% or more of the Outstanding Units of the class or classes for which a meeting is proposed. Limited Partners shall call a special meeting by delivering to the General Partner one or more requests in writing stating that the signing Limited Partners wish to call a special meeting and indicating the general or specific purposes for which the special meeting is to be called. Within 60 days after receipt of such a call from Limited Partners or within such greater time as may be reasonably necessary for the Partnership to comply with any statutes, rules, regulations, listing agreements or similar requirements 85

governing the holding of a meeting or the solicitation of proxies for use at such a meeting, the General Partner shall send a notice of the meeting to the Limited Partners either directly or indirectly through the Transfer Agent. A meeting shall be held at a time and place determined by the General Partner on a date not less than 10 days nor more than 60 days after the mailing of notice of the meeting. Limited Partners shall not vote on matters that would cause the Limited Partners to be deemed to be taking part in the management and control of the business and affairs of the Partnership so as to jeopardize the Limited Partners' limited liability under the Delaware Act or the law of any other state in which the Partnership is qualified to do business. Section 13.5 Notice of a Meeting. Notice of a meeting called pursuant to Section 13.4 shall be given to the Record Holders of the class or classes of Units for which a meeting is proposed in writing by mail or other means of written communication in accordance with Section 16.1. The notice shall be deemed to have been given at the time when deposited in the mail or sent by other means of written communication. Section 13.6 Record Date. For purposes of determining the Limited Partners entitled to notice of or to vote at a meeting of the Limited Partners or to give approvals without a meeting as provided in Section 13.11 the General Partner may set a Record Date, which shall not be less than 10 nor more than 60 days before (a) the date of the meeting (unless such requirement conflicts with any rule, regulation, guideline or requirement of any National Securities Exchange on which the Units are listed for trading, in which case the rule, regulation, guideline or requirement of such exchange shall govern) or (b) in the event that approvals are sought without a meeting, the date by which Limited Partners are requested in writing by the General Partner to give such approvals. Section 13.7 Adjournment. When a meeting is adjourned to another time or place, notice need not be given of the adjourned meeting and a new Record Date need not be fixed, if the time and place thereof are announced at the meeting at which the adjournment is taken, unless such adjournment shall be for more than 45 days. At the adjourned meeting, the Partnership may transact any business which might have been transacted at the original meeting. If the adjournment is for more than 45 days or if a new Record Date is fixed for the adjourned meeting, a notice of the adjourned meeting shall be given in accordance with this Article XIII. Section 13.8 Waiver of Notice; Approval of Meeting; Approval of Minutes. The transactions of any meeting of Limited Partners, however called and noticed, and whenever held, shall be as valid as if it had occurred at a meeting duly held after regular call and notice, if a quorum is present either in person or by proxy, and if, either before or after the meeting, Limited Partners representing such quorum who were present in person or by proxy and entitled to vote, sign a written waiver of notice or an approval of the holding of the meeting or an approval of the minutes thereof. All waivers and approvals shall be filed with the Partnership records or made a part of the minutes of the meeting. Attendance of a Limited Partner at a 86

meeting shall constitute a waiver of notice of the meeting, except when the Limited Partner does not approve, at the beginning of the meeting, of the transaction of any business because the meeting is not lawfully called or convened; and except that attendance at a meeting is not a waiver of any right to disapprove the consideration of matters required to be included in the notice of the meeting, but not so included, if the disapproval is expressly made at the meeting. Section 13.9 Quorum. The holders of a majority of the Outstanding Units of the class or classes for which a meeting has been called (including Outstanding Units deemed owned by the General Partner) represented in person or by proxy shall constitute a quorum at a meeting of Limited Partners of such class or classes unless any such action by the Limited Partners requires approval by holders of a greater percentage of such Units, in which case the quorum shall be such greater percentage. At any meeting of the Limited Partners duly called and held in accordance with this Agreement at which a quorum is present, the act of Limited Partners holding Outstanding Units that in the aggregate represent a majority of the Outstanding Units entitled to vote and be present in person or by proxy at such meeting shall be deemed to constitute the act of all Limited Partners, unless a greater or different percentage is required with respect to such action under the provisions of this Agreement, in which case the act of the Limited Partners holding Outstanding Units that in the aggregate represent at least such greater or different percentage shall be required. The Limited Partners present at a duly called or held meeting at which a quorum is present may continue to transact business until adjournment, notwithstanding the withdrawal of enough Limited Partners to leave less than a quorum, if any action taken (other than adjournment) is approved by the required percentage of Outstanding Units specified in this Agreement (including Outstanding Units deemed owned by the General Partner). In the absence of a quorum any meeting of Limited Partners may be adjourned from time to time by the affirmative vote of holders of at least a majority of the Outstanding Units entitled to vote at such meeting (including Outstanding Units deemed owned by the General Partner) represented either in person or by proxy, but no other business may be transacted, except as provided in Section 13.7. Section 13.10 Conduct of a Meeting. The General Partner shall have full power and authority concerning the manner of conducting any meeting of the Limited Partners or solicitation of approvals in writing, including the determination of Persons entitled to vote, the existence of a quorum, the satisfaction of the requirements of Section 13.4, the conduct of voting, the validity and effect of any proxies and the determination of any controversies, votes or challenges arising in connection with or during the meeting or voting. The General Partner shall designate a Person to serve as chairman of any meeting and shall further designate a Person to take the minutes of any meeting. All minutes shall be kept with the records of the Partnership maintained by the General Partner. The General Partner may make such other regulations consistent with applicable law and this Agreement as it may deem advisable concerning the conduct of any meeting of the Limited Partners or solicitation of approvals in writing, including regulations in regard to the appointment of proxies, the appointment and duties of inspectors of votes and approvals, the submission and examination of proxies and other evidence of the right to vote, and the revocation of approvals in writing. 87

Section 13.11 Action Without a Meeting. If authorized by the General Partner, any action that may be taken at a meeting of the Limited Partners may be taken without a meeting if an approval in writing setting forth the action so taken is signed by Limited Partners owning not less than the minimum percentage of the Outstanding Units (including Units deemed owned by the General Partner) that would be necessary to authorize or take such action at a meeting at which all the Limited Partners were present and voted (unless such provision conflicts with any rule, regulation, guideline or requirement of any National Securities Exchange on which the Units are listed for trading, in which case the rule, regulation, guideline or requirement of such exchange shall govern). Prompt notice of the taking of action without a meeting shall be given to the Limited Partners who have not approved in writing. The General Partner may specify that any written ballot submitted to Limited Partners for the purpose of taking any action without a meeting shall be returned to the Partnership within the time period, which shall be not less than 20 days, specified by the General Partner. If a ballot returned to the Partnership does not vote all of the Units held by the Limited Partners, the Partnership shall be deemed to have failed to receive a ballot for the Units that were not voted. If approval of the taking of any action by the Limited Partners is solicited by any Person other than by or on behalf of the General Partner, the written approvals shall have no force and effect unless and until (a) they are deposited with the Partnership in care of the General Partner, (b) approvals sufficient to take the action proposed are dated as of a date not more than 90 days prior to the date sufficient approvals are deposited with the Partnership and (c) an Opinion of Counsel is delivered to the General Partner to the effect that the exercise of such right and the action proposed to be taken with respect to any particular matter (i) will not cause the Limited Partners to be deemed to be taking part in the management and control of the business and affairs of the Partnership so as to jeopardize the Limited Partners' limited liability, and (ii) is otherwise permissible under the state statutes then governing the rights, duties and liabilities of the Partnership and the Partners. Section 13.12 Voting and Other Rights. (a) Only those Record Holders of the Units on the Record Date set pursuant to Section 13.6 (and also subject to the limitations contained in the definition of "Outstanding") shall be entitled to notice of, and to vote at, a meeting of Limited Partners or to act with respect to matters as to which the holders of the Outstanding Units have the right to vote or to act. All references in this Agreement to votes of, or other acts that may be taken by, the Outstanding Units shall be deemed to be references to the votes or acts of the Record Holders of such Outstanding Units. (b) With respect to Units that are held for a Person's account by another Person (such as a broker, dealer, bank, trust company or clearing corporation, or an agent of any of the foregoing), in whose name such Units are registered, such other Person shall, in exercising the voting rights in respect of such Units on any matter, and unless the arrangement between such Persons provides otherwise, vote such Units in favor of, and at the direction of, the Person who is the beneficial owner, and the Partnership shall be entitled to assume it is so acting without further inquiry. The provisions of this Section 13.12(b) (as well as all other provisions of this Agreement) are subject to the provisions of Section 4.3. 88

(b) Except as provided in Section 14.3(d), the Merger Agreement shall be approved upon receiving the affirmative vote or consent of the holders of a Unit Majority unless the Merger Agreement contains any provision that, if contained in an amendment to this Agreement, the provisions of this Agreement or the Delaware Act would require for its approval the vote or consent of a greater percentage of the Outstanding Units or of any class of Limited Partners, in which case such greater percentage vote or consent shall be required for approval of the Merger Agreement. (c) Except as provided in Section 14.3(d), after such approval by vote or consent of the Limited Partners, and at any time prior to the filing of the certificate of merger pursuant to Section 14.4, the merger or consolidation may be abandoned pursuant to provisions therefor, if any, set forth in the Merger Agreement. (d) Notwithstanding anything else contained in this Article XIV or in this Agreement, the General Partner is permitted, in its discretion, without Limited Partner approval, to merge the Partnership or any Group Member into, or convey all of the Partnership's assets to, another limited liability entity which shall be newly formed and shall have no assets, liabilities or operations at the time of such Merger other than those it receives from the Partnership or other Group Member if (i) the General Partner has received an Opinion of Counsel that the merger or conveyance, as the case may be, would not result in the loss of the limited liability of any Limited Partner or any Group Member or cause the Partnership or any Group Member to be treated as an association taxable as a corporation or otherwise to be taxed as an entity for federal income tax purposes (to the extent not previously treated as such), (ii) the sole purpose of such merger or conveyance is to effect a mere change in the legal form of the Partnership into another limited liability entity and (iii) the governing instruments of the new entity provide the Limited Partners and the General Partner with the same rights and obligations as are herein contained. 90

Limited Partner Interests means the average of the daily Closing Prices (as hereinafter defined) per Limited Partner Interest of such class for the 20 consecutive Trading Days (as hereinafter defined) immediately prior to such date; (ii) "Closing Price" for any day means the last sale price on such day, regular way, or in case no such sale takes place on such day, the average of the closing bid and asked prices on such day, regular way, in either case as reported in the principal consolidated transaction reporting system with respect to securities listed or admitted for trading on the principal National Securities Exchange (other than the Nasdaq Stock Market) on which such Limited Partner Interests of such class are listed or admitted to trading or, if such Limited Partner Interests of such class are not listed or admitted to trading on any National Securities Exchange (other than the Nasdaq Stock Market), the last quoted price on such day or, if not so quoted, the average of the high bid and low asked prices on such day in the over-the-counter market, as reported by the Nasdaq Stock Market or such other system then in use, or, if on any such day such Limited Partner Interests of such class are not quoted by any such organization, the average of the closing bid and asked prices on such day as furnished by a professional market maker making a market in such Limited Partner Interests of such class selected by the General Partner, or if on any such day no market maker is making a market in such Limited Partner Interests of such class, the fair value of such Limited Partner Interests on such day as determined reasonably and in good faith by the General Partner; and (iii) "Trading Day" means a day on which the principal National Securities Exchange on which such Limited Partner Interests of any class are listed or admitted to trading is open for the transaction of business or, if Limited Partner Interests of a class are not listed or admitted to trading on any National Securities Exchange, a day on which banking institutions in New York City generally are open. (b) If the General Partner, any Affiliate of the General Partner or the Partnership elects to exercise the right to purchase Limited Partner Interests granted pursuant to Section 15.1(a), the General Partner shall deliver to the Transfer Agent notice of such election to purchase (the "Notice of Election to Purchase") and shall cause the Transfer Agent to mail a copy of such Notice of Election to Purchase to the Record Holders of Limited Partner Interests of such class (as of a Record Date selected by the General Partner) at least 10, but not more than 60, days prior to the Purchase Date. Such Notice of Election to Purchase shall also be published for a period of at least three consecutive days in at least two daily newspapers of general circulation printed in the English language and published in the Borough of Manhattan, New York. The Notice of Election to Purchase shall specify the Purchase Date and the price (determined in accordance with Section 15.1(a)) at which Limited Partner Interests will be purchased and state that the General Partner, its Affiliate or the Partnership, as the case may be, elects to purchase such Limited Partner Interests, upon surrender of Certificates representing such Limited Partner Interests in exchange for payment, at such office or offices of the Transfer Agent as the Transfer Agent may specify, or as may be required by any National Securities Exchange on which such Limited Partner Interests are listed or admitted to trading. Any such Notice of Election to Purchase mailed to a Record Holder of Limited Partner Interests at his address as reflected in the records of the Transfer Agent shall be conclusively presumed to have been given regardless of whether the owner receives such notice. On or prior to the Purchase Date, the General Partner, its Affiliate or the Partnership, as the case may be, shall deposit with the Transfer Agent cash in an amount sufficient to pay the aggregate purchase price of all of such Limited Partner Interests to be purchased in accordance with this Section 15.1. If the Notice of Election to Purchase shall have been duly given as aforesaid at least 10 days prior to the Purchase Date, and if on or prior to the Purchase Date the deposit described in the preceding sentence has been made for the benefit 92

of the holders of Limited Partner Interests subject to purchase as provided herein, then from and after the Purchase Date, notwithstanding that any Certificate shall not have been surrendered for purchase, all rights of the holders of such Limited Partner Interests (including any rights pursuant to Articles IV, V, VI, and XII) shall thereupon cease, except the right to receive the purchase price (determined in accordance with Section 15.1(a)) for Limited Partner Interests therefor, without interest, upon surrender to the Transfer Agent of the Certificates representing such Limited Partner Interests, and such Limited Partner Interests shall thereupon be deemed to be transferred to the General Partner, its Affiliate or the Partnership, as the case may be, on the record books of the Transfer Agent and the Partnership, and the General Partner or any Affiliate of the General Partner, or the Partnership, as the case may be, shall be deemed to be the owner of all such Limited Partner Interests from and after the Purchase Date and shall have all rights as the owner of such Limited Partner Interests (including all rights as owner of such Limited Partner Interests pursuant to Articles IV, V, VI and XII). (c) At any time from and after the Purchase Date, a holder of an Outstanding Limited Partner Interest subject to purchase as provided in this Section 15.1 may surrender his Certificate evidencing such Limited Partner Interest to the Transfer Agent in exchange for payment of the amount described in Section 15.1(a), therefor, without interest thereon.

An affidavit or certificate of making of any notice, payment or report in accordance with the provisions of this Section 16.1 executed by the General Partner, the Transfer Agent or the mailing organization shall be prima facie evidence of the giving or making of such notice, payment or report. If any notice, payment or report addressed to a Record Holder at the address of such Record Holder appearing on the books and records of the Transfer Agent or the Partnership is returned by the United States Postal Service marked to indicate that the United States Postal Service is unable to deliver it, such notice, payment or report and any subsequent notices, payments and reports shall be deemed to have been duly given or made without further mailing (until such time as such Record Holder or another Person notifies the Transfer Agent or the Partnership of a change in his address) if they are available for the Partner or Assignee at the principal office of the Partnership for a period of one year from the date of the giving or making of such notice, payment or report 93

to the other Partners and Assignees.

This FIRST AMENDED AND RESTATED AGREEMENT OF LIMITED PARTNERSHIP of SUNOCO LOGISTICS PARTNERS OPERATIONS L.P., dated as of February 8, 2002, is entered into by and between Sunoco Logistics Partners GP LLC, a Delaware limited liability company, as the General Partner, and Sunoco Logistics Partners L.P., a Delaware limited partnership, as the Limited Partner, together with any other Persons who hereafter become Partners in the Partnership or parties hereto as provided herein. R E C I T A L S: - - - - - - - - WHEREAS, Sunoco Logistics Partners GP LLC and Sunoco Logistics Partners L.P. formed the Partnership pursuant to the Agreement of Limited Partnership of Sunoco Logistics Partners Operations L.P. dated as of December 6, 2001 (the "Prior Agreement") and a Certificate of Limited Partnership, which was filed --------------- with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware on such date; and WHEREAS, the Partners of the Partnership now desire to amend the Prior Agreement to reflect additional contributions by the Partners and certain other matters. NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the covenants, conditions and agreements contained herein, the parties hereto hereby amend the Prior Agreement and, as so amended, restate it in its entirety as follows: ARTICLE I. DEFINITIONS Section 1.1. Definitions. The following definitions shall be for all purposes, unless otherwise clearly indicated to the contrary, applied to the terms used in this Agreement. Capitalized terms used herein but not otherwise defined shall have the meanings assigned to such terms in the MLP Agreement. "Additional Limited Partner" means a Person admitted to the Partnership as a Limited Partner pursuant to Section 10.3 and who is shown as such on the books and records of the Partnership. "Adjusted Capital Account" means the Capital Account maintained for each Partner as of the end of each fiscal year of the Partnership, (a) increased by any amounts that such Partner is obligated to restore under the standards set by Treasury Regulation Section 1.704-1(b)(2)(ii)(c) (or is deemed obligated to restore under Treasury Regulation

Sections 1.704-2(g) and 1.704-2(i)(5)) and (b) decreased by (i) the amount of all losses and deductions that, as of the end of such fiscal year, are reasonably expected to be allocated to such Partner in subsequent years under Sections 704(e)(2) and 706(d) of the Code and Treasury Regulation Section 1.751-1(b)(2)(ii), and (ii) the amount of all distributions that, as of the end of such fiscal year, are reasonably expected to be made to such Partner in subsequent years in accordance with the terms of this Agreement or otherwise to the extent they exceed offsetting increases to such Partner's Capital Account that are reasonably expected to occur during (or prior to) the year in which such distributions are reasonably expected to be made (other than increases as a result of a minimum gain chargeback pursuant to Section 6.1(d)(i) or 6.1(d)(ii)). The foregoing definition of Adjusted Capital Account is intended to comply with the provisions of Treasury Regulation Section 1.704-1(b)(2)(ii)(d) and shall be interpreted consistently therewith. The "Adjusted Capital Account" of a Partner in respect of a General Partner Interest or any other specified interest in the Partnership shall be the amount that such Adjusted Capital Account would be if such General Partner Interest or other interest in the Partnership were the only interest in the Partnership held by such Partner from and after the date on which such General Partner Interest or other interest in the Partnership was first issued. "Adjusted Property" means any property the Carrying Value of which has been adjusted pursuant to Section 5.5(d)(i) or 5.5(d)(ii). "Affiliate" means, with respect to any Person, any other Person that directly or indirectly through one or more intermediaries controls, is controlled by or is under common control with, the Person in question. As used herein, the term "control" means the possession, direct or indirect, of the power to direct or cause the direction of the management and policies of a Person, whether through ownership of voting securities, by contract or otherwise. "Agreed Allocation" means any allocation, other than a Required Allocation, of an item of income, gain, loss or deduction pursuant to the provisions of Section 6.1, including, without limitation, a Curative Allocation (if appropriate to the context in which the term "Agreed Allocation" is used). "Agreed Value" of any Contributed Property means the fair market value of such property or other consideration at the time of contribution as determined by the General Partner using such reasonable method of valuation as it may adopt. The General Partner shall, in its discretion, use such method as it deems reasonable and appropriate to allocate the aggregate Agreed Value of Contributed Properties contributed to the Partnership in a single or integrated transaction among each separate property on a basis proportional to the fair market value of each Contributed Property. "Agreement" means this First Amended and Restated Agreement of Limited Partnership of Sunoco Logistics Partners Operations L.P., as it may be amended, supplemented or restated from time to time. 2

(a) In addition to other rights provided by this Agreement or by applicable law, and except as limited by Section 3.4(b), each Limited Partner shall have the right, for a purpose reasonably related to such Limited Partner's interest as a limited partner in the Partnership, upon reasonable written demand and at such Limited Partner's own expense: (i) to obtain true and full information regarding the status of the business and financial condition of the Partnership; (ii) to obtain a copy of the Partnership's federal, state and local income tax returns for each year promptly after they become available; (iii) to have furnished to him a current list of the name and last known business, residence or mailing address of each Partner; (iv) to have furnished to him a copy of this Agreement and the Certificate of Limited Partnership and all amendments thereto, together with a copy of the executed copies of all powers of attorney pursuant to which this Agreement, the Certificate of Limited Partnership and all amendments thereto have been executed; 16

(v) to obtain true and full information regarding the amount of cash and a description and statement of the Net Agreed Value of any other Capital Contribution by each Partner and that each Partner has agreed to contribute in the future, and the date on which each became a Partner; and (vi) to obtain such other information regarding the affairs of the Partnership as is just and reasonable. (b) The General Partner may keep confidential from the Limited Partners and Assignees, for such period of time as the General Partner deems reasonable, (i) any information that the General Partner reasonably believes to be in the nature of trade secrets or (ii) other information the disclosure of which the General Partner in good faith believes (A) is not in the best interests of the MLP or the Partnership Group, (B) could damage the MLP or the Partnership Group or (C) that any Group Member is required by law or by agreement with any third party to keep confidential (other than agreements with Affiliates of the Partnership the primary purpose of which is to circumvent the obligations set forth in this Section 3.4). ARTICLE IV. TRANSFERS OF PARTNERSHIP INTERESTS Section 4.1. Transfer Generally. (a) The term "transfer," when used in this Agreement with respect to a Partnership Interest, shall be deemed to refer to a transaction by which a General Partner assigns its General Partner Interest to another Person who becomes the General Partner or by which the holder of a Limited Partner Interest assigns such Limited Partner Interest to another Person who is or becomes a Limited Partner (or an Assignee), and includes a sale, assignment, gift, pledge, encumbrance, hypothecation, mortgage, exchange or any other disposition by law or otherwise. (b) No Partnership Interest shall be transferred, in whole or in part, except in accordance with the terms and conditions set forth in this Article IV. Any transfer or purported transfer of a Partnership Interest not made in accordance with this Article IV shall be null and void. (c) Nothing contained in this Agreement shall be construed to prevent a disposition by any member of the General Partner of any or all of the issued and outstanding member interests of the General Partner. Section 4.2. Transfer of General Partner's General Partner Interest. No provision of this Agreement shall be construed to prevent (and the Limited Partners do hereby expressly consent to) (i) the transfer by the General Partner of all or a portion of its General Partner Interest to one or more Affiliates, which transferred General Partner Interest, to the extent not transferred to a successor General Partner, shall constitute a Limited Partner Interest or (ii) the transfer by the General Partner, in whole and not in part, of its General Partner Interest upon (a) its merger, consolidation or other combination into any other Person or the transfer by it of all or substantially all of its assets to another Person or (b) sale of all or 17

substantially all of the membership interests of the General Partner by its members if, in the case of a transfer described in either clause (i) or (ii) of this sentence, the rights and duties of the General Partner with respect to the General Partner Interest so transferred are assumed by the transferee and the transferee agrees to be bound by the provisions of this Agreement; provided, however, that in either such case, the transferee is primarily controlled, directly or indirectly, by the MLP or the MLP General Partner or any Person primarily controlling, directly or indirectly, the MLP or the MLP General Partner; provided, further, that in either such case, such transferee furnishes to the Partnership an Opinion of Counsel that such merger, consolidation, combination, transfer or assumption will not result in a loss of limited liability of any Limited Partner or cause the Partnership to be taxable as a corporation or otherwise to be taxed as an entity for federal income tax purposes (to the extent not already so treated or taxed). In the case of a transfer pursuant to this Section 4.2 to a Person proposed as a successor general partner of the Partnership, the transferee or successor (as the case may be) shall, subject to compliance with the terms of Section 10.4, be admitted to the Partnership as the General Partner immediately prior to the transfer of the Partnership Interest, and the business of the Partnership shall continue without dissolution. Section 4.3. Transfer of a Limited Partner's Partnership Interest. A Limited Partner may transfer all, but not less than all, of its Partnership Interest as a Limited Partner in connection with the merger, consolidation or other combination of such Limited Partner with or into any other Person or the transfer by such Limited Partner of all or substantially all of its assets to another Person and, following any such transfer, such Person may become a Substituted Limited Partner pursuant to Article X. Except as set forth in the immediately preceding sentence, or in connection with any pledge of (or any related foreclosure on) a Partnership Interest of a Limited Partner solely for the purpose of securing, directly or indirectly, indebtedness of the Partnership or the MLP, a Limited Partner may not transfer all or any part of its Partnership Interest or withdraw from the Partnership. Section 4.4. Restrictions on Transfers. (a) Notwithstanding the other provisions of this Article IV, no transfer of any Partnership Interest shall be made if such transfer would (i) violate the then applicable federal or state securities laws or the rules and regulations of the Commission, any state securities commission or any other governmental authority with jurisdiction over such transfer, (ii) terminate the existence or qualification of the Partnership or the MLP under the laws of the jurisdiction of its formation or (iii) cause the Partnership or the MLP to be treated as an association taxable as a corporation or otherwise to be taxed as an entity for federal income tax purposes (to the extent not already so treated or taxed). (b) The General Partner may impose restrictions on the transfer of Partnership Interests if a subsequent Opinion of Counsel determines that such restrictions are necessary to avoid a significant risk of the Partnership or the MLP becoming taxable as a corporation or otherwise to be taxed as an entity for federal income tax purposes. The restrictions may be imposed by making such amendments to this Agreement as the General Partner may determine to be necessary or appropriate to impose such restrictions. 18

In connection with the formation of the Partnership under the Delaware Act, the General Partner made an initial Capital Contribution to the Partnership in the amount of $0.10 in exchange for an interest in the Partnership and was admitted as General Partner, and the MLP made an initial Capital Contribution to the Partnership in the amount of $999.90 in exchange for an interest in the Partnership and was admitted as a Limited Partner. Section 5.2. Contributions Pursuant to the Contribution Agreement. (a) Pursuant to the Contribution Agreement, the General Partner contributed to the Partnership all of its membership interest in Sunoco Logistics Partners Operations GP LLC as an additional Capital Contribution. (b) Pursuant to the Contribution Agreement, the MLP contributed to the Partnership all of its direct interests in Sunoco Pipeline L.P., Sun Pipe Line Services (In) L.P., Sunoco Michigan (In) LLC, Sunoco Mid-Con (In) LLC, Atlantic (In) L.P., Atlantic RM (In) L.P. and Sunoco Partners Marketing & Terminals L.P. (i) in exchange for a special interest giving the MLP the right to receive approximately $245.3 million in cash from the OLP upon redemption of the special interest on the Closing Date and (ii) as a Capital Contribution on its behalf (99.99%) and on behalf of the General Partner (0.01%) with respect to the membership interests in Sunoco Michigan (In) LLC and Sunoco Mid-Con (In) LLC. (c) Following the foregoing transactions, the General Partner owns a 0.01% Partnership Interest as General Partner and the MLP owns a 99.99% Partnership Interest as a Limited Partner. Section 5.3. Additional Capital Contributions. With the consent of the General Partner, any Limited Partner may, but shall not be obligated to, make additional Capital Contributions to the Partnership. Contemporaneously with the making of any Capital Contributions by a Limited Partner, in addition to those provided in Sections 5.1 and 5.2, the General Partner shall be obligated to make an additional Capital Contribution to the Partnership in an amount equal to 0.01 divided by 99.99 times the amount of the additional Capital Contribution then made by such Limited Partner. Except as set forth in the immediately preceding sentence and in Article XII, the General Partner shall not be obligated to make any additional Capital Contributions to the Partnership. Section 5.4. Interest and Withdrawal. No interest shall be paid by the Partnership on Capital Contributions. No Partner or Assignee shall be entitled to the withdrawal or return of its Capital Contribution, except to the extent, if any, that distributions made pursuant to this Agreement or upon termination of the Partnership may be considered as such by law and then only to the extent provided for in this Agreement. Except to the extent expressly provided in this Agreement, no Partner or Assignee 19

shall have priority over any other Partner or Assignee either as to the return of Capital Contributions or as to profits, losses or distributions. Any such return shall be a compromise to which all Partners and Assignees agree within the meaning of Section 17-502(b) of the Delaware Act. Section 5.5. Capital Accounts. (a) The Partnership shall maintain for each Partner (or a beneficial owner of Partnership Interests held by a nominee in any case in which the nominee has furnished the identity of such owner to the Partnership in accordance with Section 6031(c) of the Code or any other method acceptable to the General Partner in its sole discretion) owning a Partnership Interest a separate Capital Account with respect to such Partnership Interest in accordance with the rules of Treasury Regulation Section 1.704-1(b)(2)(iv). Such Capital Account shall be increased by (i) the amount of all Capital Contributions made to the Partnership with respect to such Partnership Interest pursuant to this Agreement and (ii) all items of Partnership income and gain (including, without limitation, income and gain exempt from tax) computed in accordance with Section 5.5(b) and allocated with respect to such Partnership Interest pursuant to Section 6.1, and decreased by (x) the amount of cash or Net Agreed Value of all actual and deemed distributions of cash or property made with respect to such Partnership Interest pursuant to this Agreement and (y) all items of Partnership deduction and loss computed in accordance with Section 5.5(b) and allocated with respect to such Partnership Interest pursuant to Section 6.1. (b) For purposes of computing the amount of any item of income, gain, loss or deduction that is to be allocated pursuant to Article VI and is to be reflected in the Partners' Capital Accounts, the determination, recognition and classification of any such item shall be the same as its determination, recognition and classification for federal income tax purposes (including, without limitation, any method of depreciation, cost recovery or amortization used for that purpose), provided, that: (i) Solely for purposes of this Section 5.5, the Partnership shall be treated as owning directly its proportionate share (as determined by the General Partner) of all property owned by any OLP Subsidiary that is classified as a partnership for federal income tax purposes. (ii) All fees and other expenses incurred by the Partnership to promote the sale of (or to sell) a Partnership Interest that can neither be deducted nor amortized under Section 709 of the Code, if any, shall, for purposes of Capital Account maintenance, be treated as an item of deduction at the time such fees and other expenses are incurred and shall be allocated among the Partners pursuant to Section 6.1. (iii) Except as otherwise provided in Treasury Regulation Section 1.704-1(b)(2)(iv)(m), computation of all items of income, gain, loss and deduction shall be made without regard to any election under Section 754 of the Code that may be made by the Partnership and, as to those items described in Section 705(a)(1)(B) or 705(a)(2)(B) of the Code, without regard to the fact that such items are not includable in gross income or are neither currently deductible nor capitalized for federal income tax purposes. To the extent an adjustment to the adjusted tax basis of any Partnership asset pursuant to 20

Section 734(b) or 743(b) of the Code is required, pursuant to Treasury Regulation Section 1.704-1(b)(2)(iv)(m), to be taken into account in determining Capital Accounts, the amount of such adjustment in the Capital Accounts shall be treated as an item of gain or loss. (iv) Any income, gain or loss attributable to the taxable disposition of any Partnership property shall be determined as if the adjusted basis of such property as of such date of disposition were equal in amount to the Partnership's Carrying Value with respect to such property as of such date. (v) In accordance with the requirements of Section 704(b) of the Code, any deductions for depreciation, cost recovery or amortization attributable to any Contributed Property shall be determined as if the adjusted basis of such property on the date it was acquired by the Partnership were equal to the Agreed Value of such property. Upon an adjustment pursuant to Section 5.5(d) to the Carrying Value of any Partnership property subject to depreciation, cost recovery or amortization, any further deductions for such depreciation, cost recovery or amortization attributable to such property shall be determined (A) as if the adjusted basis of such property were equal to the Carrying Value of such property immediately following such adjustment and (B) using a rate of depreciation, cost recovery or amortization derived from the same method and useful life (or, if applicable, the remaining useful life) as is applied for federal income tax purposes; provided, however, that, if the asset has a zero adjusted basis for federal income tax purposes, depreciation, cost recovery or amortization deductions shall be determined using any reasonable method that the General Partner may adopt. (vi) If the Partnership's adjusted basis in a depreciable or cost recovery property is reduced for federal income tax purposes pursuant to Section 48(q)(1) or 48(q)(3) of the Code, the amount of such reduction shall, solely for purposes hereof, be deemed to be an additional depreciation or cost recovery deduction in the year such property is placed in service and shall be allocated among the Partners pursuant to Section 6.1. Any restoration of such basis pursuant to Section 48(q)(2) of the Code shall, to the extent possible, be allocated in the same manner to the Partners to whom such deemed deduction was allocated. (c) A transferee of a Partnership Interest shall succeed to a pro rata portion of the Capital Account of the transferor relating to the Partnership Interest so transferred. (d) (i) In accordance with Treasury Regulation Section 1.704-1(b)(2)(iv)(f), on an issuance of additional Partnership Interests for cash or Contributed Property, the Capital Accounts of all Partners and the Carrying Value of each Partnership property immediately prior to such issuance shall be adjusted upward or downward to reflect any Unrealized Gain or Unrealized Loss attributable to such Partnership property, as if such Unrealized Gain or Unrealized Loss had been recognized on an actual sale of each such property immediately prior to such issuance and had been allocated to the Partners at such time pursuant to Section 6.1 in the same manner as any item of gain or loss actually recognized during such period would have been allocated. In determining such Unrealized Gain or Unrealized Loss, the aggregate cash amount and fair market 21

value of all Partnership assets (including, without limitation, cash or cash equivalents) immediately prior to the issuance of additional Partnership Interests shall be determined by the General Partner using such reasonable method of valuation as it may adopt; provided, however, that the General Partner, in arriving at such valuation, must take fully into account the fair market value of the Partnership Interests of all Partners at such time. The General Partner shall allocate such aggregate value among the assets of the Partnership (in such manner as it determines in its discretion to be reasonable) to arrive at a fair market value for individual properties. (ii) In accordance with Treasury Regulation Section 1.704-1(b)(2)(iv)(f), immediately prior to any actual or deemed distribution to a Partner of any Partnership property (other than a distribution of cash that is not in redemption or retirement of a Partnership Interest), the Capital Accounts of all Partners and the Carrying Value of all Partnership property shall be adjusted upward or downward to reflect any Unrealized Gain or Unrealized Loss attributable to such Partnership property, as if such Unrealized Gain or Unrealized Loss had been recognized in a sale of such property immediately prior to such distribution for an amount equal to its fair market value, and had been allocated to the Partners, at such time, pursuant to Section 6.1(c) in the same manner as any item of gain or loss actually recognized during such period would have been allocated. In determining such Unrealized Gain or Unrealized Loss the aggregate cash amount and fair market value of all Partnership assets (including, without limitation, cash or cash equivalents) immediately prior to a distribution shall (A) in the case of an actual distribution that is not made pursuant to Section 12.4 or in the case of a deemed distribution, be determined and allocated in the same manner as that provided in Section 5.5(d)(i) or (B) in the case of a liquidating distribution pursuant to Section 12.4, be determined and allocated by the Liquidator using such reasonable method of valuation as it may adopt. Section 5.6. Loans from Partners. Loans by a Partner to the Partnership shall not constitute Capital Contributions. If any Partner shall advance funds to the Partnership in excess of the amounts required hereunder to be contributed by it to the capital of the Partnership, the making of such excess advances shall not result in any increase in the amount of the Capital Account of such Partner. The amount of any such excess advances shall be a debt obligation of the Partnership to such Partner and shall be payable or collectible only out of the Partnership assets in accordance with the terms and conditions upon which such advances are made. Section 5.7. Issuances of Additional Partnership Securities. (a) The Partnership may issue additional Partnership Securities and options, rights, warrants and appreciation rights relating to the Partnership Securities for any Partnership purpose at any time and from time to time to such Persons for such consideration and on such terms and conditions as shall be established by the General Partner in its sole discretion. The issuance by the Partnership of Partnership Securities or rights, warrants or appreciation rights in respect thereof shall be deemed an amendment to this Agreement. 22

(b) Each additional Partnership Security authorized to be issued by the Partnership pursuant to Section 5.7(a) may be issued in one or more classes, or one or more series of any such classes, with such designations, preferences, rights, powers and duties (which may be senior to existing classes and series of Partnership Securities), as shall be fixed by the General Partner in its sole discretion, including (i) the right to share Partnership profits and losses or items thereof; (ii) the right to share in Partnership distributions; (iii) the rights upon dissolution and liquidation of the Partnership; (iv) whether, and the terms and conditions upon which, the Partnership may redeem such Partnership Security; (v) whether such Partnership Security is issued with the privilege of conversion or exchange and, if so, the terms and conditions of such conversion or exchange; (vi) the terms and conditions upon which each Partnership Security will be issued, evidenced by certificates and assigned or transferred; and (vii) the right, if any, of the holder of each such Partnership Security to vote on Partnership matters, including matters relating to the relative designations, preferences, rights, powers and duties of such Partnership Security. (c) The General Partner is hereby authorized and directed to take all actions that it deems necessary or appropriate in connection with (i) each issuance of Partnership Securities and options, rights, warrants and appreciation rights relating to Partnership Securities pursuant to this Section 5.7, (ii) the admission of Additional Limited Partners and (iii) all additional issuances of Partnership Securities. The General Partner is further authorized and directed to specify the relative rights, powers and duties of the holders of the Partnership Interests or other Partnership Securities being so issued. The General Partner shall do all things necessary to comply with the Delaware Act and is authorized and directed to do all things it deems necessary or advisable in connection with any future issuance of Partnership Securities, including compliance with any statute, rule, regulation or guideline of any federal, state or other governmental agency. Section 5.8. Limited Preemptive Rights. Except as provided in Section 5.3, no Person shall have preemptive, preferential or other similar rights with respect to (a) additional Capital Contributions; (b) issuance or sale of any class or series of Partnership Interests, whether unissued, held in the treasury or hereafter created; (c) issuance of any obligations, evidences of indebtedness or other securities of the Partnership convertible into or exchangeable for, or carrying or accompanied by any rights to receive, purchase or subscribe to, any such Partnership Interests; (d) issuance of any right of subscription to or right to receive, or any warrant or option for the purchase of, any such Partnership Interests; or (e) issuance or sale of any other securities that may be issued or sold by the Partnership. Section 5.9. Fully Paid and Non-Assessable Nature of Limited Partner Interests. All Limited Partner Interests issued pursuant to, and in accordance with the requirements of, this Article V shall be fully paid and non-assessable Limited Partner Interests, except as such non-assessability may be affected by Section 17-607 of the Delaware Act. 23

ARTICLE VI. ALLOCATIONS AND DISTRIBUTIONS Section 6.1. Allocations for Capital Account Purposes. For purposes of maintaining the Capital Accounts and in determining the rights of the Partners among themselves, the Partnership's items of income, gain, loss and deduction (computed in accordance with Section 5.5(b)) shall be allocated among the Partners in each taxable year (or portion thereof) as provided herein below. (a) Net Income. After giving effect to the special allocations set ---------- forth in Section 6.1(d), Net Income for each taxable year and all items of income, gain, loss and deduction taken into account in computing Net Income for such taxable year shall be allocated among the Partners as follows: (i) First, 100% to the General Partner, until the aggregate Net Income allocated to the General Partner pursuant to this Section 6.1(a)(i) for the current taxable year and all previous taxable years is equal to the aggregate Net Losses allocated to the General Partner pursuant to Section 6.1(b)(ii) for all previous taxable years; (ii) Second, 0.01% to the General Partner and 99.99% to the Limited Partners in accordance with their respective Percentage Interests. (b) Net Losses. After giving effect to the special allocations set ---------- forth in Section 6.1(d), Net Losses for each taxable period and all items of income, gain, loss and deduction taken into account in computing Net Losses for such taxable period shall be allocated among the Partners as follows: (i) First, 0.01% to the General Partner and 99.99% to the Limited Partners, in accordance with their respective Percentage Interests; provided, however, that Net Losses shall not be allocated to a Limited Partner pursuant to this Section 6.1(b)(i) to the extent that such allocation would cause a Limited Partner to have a deficit balance in its Adjusted Capital Account at the end of such taxable year (or increase any existing deficit balance in such Limited Partner's Adjusted Capital Account); (ii) Second, the balance, if any, 100% to the General Partner. (c) Net Termination Gains and Losses. After giving effect to the -------------------------------- special allocations set forth in Section 6.1(d), all items of income, gain, loss and deduction taken into account in computing Net Termination Gain or Net Termination Loss for such taxable period shall be allocated in the same manner as such Net Termination Gain or Net Termination Loss is allocated hereunder. All allocations under this Section 6.1(c) shall be made after Capital Account balances have been adjusted by all other allocations provided under this Section 6.1 and after all distributions of Available Cash provided under Section 6.4 have been made with respect to the taxable period ending on or before the Liquidation Date; provided, however, that solely for purposes of this Section 6.1(c), Capital Accounts shall not be adjusted for distributions made pursuant to Section 12.4. 24

(i) If a Net Termination Gain is recognized (or deemed recognized pursuant to Section 5.5(d)), such Net Termination Gain shall be allocated among the Partners in the following manner (and the Capital Accounts of the Partners shall be increased by the amount so allocated in each of the following subclauses, in the order listed, before an allocation is made pursuant to the next succeeding subclause): (A) First, to each Partner having a deficit balance in its Capital Account, in the proportion that such deficit balance bears to the total deficit balances in the Capital Accounts of all Partners, until each such Partner has been allocated Net Termination Gain equal to any such deficit balance in its Capital Account; and (B) Second, 0.01% to the General Partner and 99.99% to the Limited Partners, in accordance with their respective Percentage Interests. (ii) If a Net Termination Loss is recognized (or deemed recognized pursuant to Section 5.5(d)), such Net Termination Loss shall be allocated among the Partners in the following manner: (A) First, to the General Partner and the Limited Partners in proportion to, and to the extent of, the positive balances in their respective Capital Accounts; and (B) Second, the balance, if any, 100% to the General Partner. (d) Special Allocations. Notwithstanding any other provision of this ------------------- Section 6.1, the following special allocations shall be made for such taxable period: (i) Partnership Minimum Gain Chargeback. Notwithstanding any other ----------------------------------- provision of this Section 6.1, if there is a net decrease in Partnership Minimum Gain during any Partnership taxable period, each Partner shall be allocated items of Partnership income and gain for such period (and, if necessary, subsequent periods) in the manner and amounts provided in Treasury Regulation Sections 1.704-2(f)(6), 1.704-2(g)(2) and 1.704-2(j)(2)(i), or any successor provision. For purposes of this Section 6.1(d), each Partner's Adjusted Capital Account balance shall be determined, and the allocation of income or gain required hereunder shall be effected, prior to the application of any other allocations pursuant to this Section 6.1(d) with respect to such taxable period (other than an allocation pursuant to Sections 6.1(d)(v) and 6.1(d)(vi)). This Section 6.1(d)(i) is intended to comply with the Partnership Minimum Gain chargeback requirement in Treasury Regulation Section 1.704-2(f) and shall be interpreted consistently therewith. (ii) Chargeback of Partner Nonrecourse Debt Minimum Gain. --------------------------------------------------- Notwithstanding the other provisions of this Section 6.1 (other than Section 6.1(d)(i)), except as provided in Treasury Regulation Section 1.704-2(i)(4), if there is a net decrease in Partner Nonrecourse Debt Minimum Gain during any Partnership taxable period, any Partner with a share of Partner Nonrecourse Debt Minimum Gain at the beginning of 25

such taxable period shall be allocated items of Partnership income and gain for such period (and, if necessary, subsequent periods) in the manner and amounts provided in Treasury Regulation Sections 1.704-2(i)(4) and 1.704-2(j)(2)(ii), or any successor provisions. For purposes of this Section 6.1(d), each Partner's Adjusted Capital Account balance shall be determined, and the allocation of income or gain required hereunder shall be effected, prior to the application of any other allocations pursuant to this Section 6.1(d), other than Section 6.1(d)(i) and other than an allocation pursuant to Sections 6.1(d)(v) and 6.1(d)(vi), with respect to such taxable period. This Section 6.1(d)(ii) is intended to comply with the chargeback of items of income and gain requirement in Treasury Regulation Section 1.704-2(i)(4) and shall be interpreted consistently therewith. (iii) Qualified Income Offset. In the event any Partner unexpectedly ----------------------- receives any adjustments, allocations or distributions described in Treasury Regulation Sections 1.704-1(b)(2)(ii)(d)(4), 1.704-1(b)(2)(ii)(d)(5), or 1.704-1(b)(2)(ii)(d)(6), items of Partnership income and gain shall be specially allocated to such Partner in an amount and manner sufficient to eliminate, to the extent required by the Treasury Regulations promulgated under Section 704(b) of the Code, the deficit balance, if any, in its Adjusted Capital Account created by such adjustments, allocations or distributions as quickly as possible unless such deficit balance is otherwise eliminated pursuant to Section 6.1(d)(i) or (ii). (iv) Gross Income Allocations. In the event any Partner has a deficit ------------------------ balance in its Capital Account at the end of any Partnership taxable period in excess of the sum of (A) the amount such Partner is required to restore pursuant to the provisions of this Agreement and (B) the amount such Partner is deemed obligated to restore pursuant to Treasury Regulation Sections 1.704-2(g) and 1.704-2(i)(5), such Partner shall be specially allocated items of Partnership gross income and gain in the amount of such excess as quickly as possible; provided, that an allocation pursuant to this Section 6.1(d)(iv) shall be made only if and to the extent that such Partner would have a deficit balance in its Capital Account as adjusted after all other allocations provided for in this Section 6.1 have been tentatively made as if this Section 6.1(d)(iv) were not in this Agreement. (v) Nonrecourse Deductions. Nonrecourse Deductions for any taxable ---------------------- period shall be allocated to the Partners in accordance with their respective Percentage Interests. If the General Partner determines in its good faith discretion that the Partnership's Nonrecourse Deductions must be allocated in a different ratio to satisfy the safe harbor requirements of the Treasury Regulations promulgated under Section 704(b) of the Code, the General Partner is authorized, upon notice to the other Partners, to revise the prescribed ratio to the numerically closest ratio that does satisfy such requirements. (vi) Partner Nonrecourse Deductions. Partner Nonrecourse Deductions ------------------------------ for any taxable period shall be allocated 100% to the Partner that bears the Economic Risk of Loss with respect to the Partner Nonrecourse Debt to which such Partner Nonrecourse Deductions are attributable in accordance with Treasury Regulation Section 1.704-2(i). If more than one Partner bears the Economic Risk of Loss with respect to a Partner 26

Nonrecourse Debt, such Partner Nonrecourse Deductions attributable thereto shall be allocated between or among such Partners in accordance with the ratios in which they share such Economic Risk of Loss. (vii) Nonrecourse Liabilities. For purposes of Treasury Regulation ----------------------- Section 1.752-3(a)(3), the Partners agree that Nonrecourse Liabilities of the Partnership in excess of the sum of (A) the amount of Partnership Minimum Gain and (B) the total amount of Nonrecourse Built-in Gain shall be allocated among the Partners in accordance with their respective Percentage Interests. (viii) Code Section 754 Adjustments. To the extent an adjustment to ---------------------------- the adjusted tax basis of any Partnership asset pursuant to Section 734(b) or 743(c) of the Code is required, pursuant to Treasury Regulation Section 1.704-1(b)(2)(iv)(m), to be taken into account in determining Capital Accounts, the amount of such adjustment to the Capital Accounts shall be treated as an item of gain (if the adjustment increases the basis of the asset) or loss (if the adjustment decreases such basis), and such item of gain or loss shall be specially allocated to the Partners in a manner consistent with the manner in which their Capital Accounts are required to be adjusted pursuant to such Section of the Treasury Regulations. (ix) Curative Allocation. ------------------- (A) Notwithstanding any other provision of this Section 6.1, other than the Required Allocations, the Required Allocations shall be taken into account in making the Agreed Allocations so that, to the extent possible, the net amount of items of income, gain, loss and deduction allocated to each Partner pursuant to the Required Allocations and the Agreed Allocations, together, shall be equal to the net amount of such items that would have been allocated to each such Partner under the Agreed Allocations had the Required Allocations and the related Curative Allocation not otherwise been provided in this Section 6.1. Notwithstanding the preceding sentence, Required Allocations relating to (1) Nonrecourse Deductions shall not be taken into account except to the extent that there has been a decrease in Partnership Minimum Gain and (2) Partner Nonrecourse Deductions shall not be taken into account except to the extent that there has been a decrease in Partner Nonrecourse Debt Minimum Gain. Allocations pursuant to this Section 6.1(d)(ix)(A) shall only be made with respect to Required Allocations to the extent the General Partner reasonably determines that such allocations will otherwise be inconsistent with the economic agreement among the Partners. Further, allocations pursuant to this Section 6.1(d)(ix)(A) shall be deferred with respect to allocations pursuant to clauses (1) and (2) hereof to the extent the General Partner reasonably determines that such allocations are likely to be offset by subsequent Required Allocations. (B) The General Partner shall have reasonable discretion, with respect to each taxable period, to (1) apply the provisions of Section 6.1(d)(ix)(A) in whatever order is most likely to minimize the economic distortions that might otherwise result from the Required Allocations, and (2) divide all allocations 27

pursuant to Section 6.1(d)(ix)(A) among the Partners in a manner that is likely to minimize such economic distortions. Section 6.2. Allocations for Tax Purposes. (a) Except as otherwise provided herein, for federal income tax purposes, each item of income, gain, loss and deduction shall be allocated among the Partners in the same manner as its correlative item of "book" income, gain, loss or deduction is allocated pursuant to Section 6.1. (b) In an attempt to eliminate Book-Tax Disparities attributable to a Contributed Property or Adjusted Property, items of income, gain, loss, depreciation, amortization and cost recovery deductions shall be allocated for federal income tax purposes among the Partners as follows: (i) (A) In the case of a Contributed Property, such items attributable thereto shall be allocated among the Partners in the manner provided under Section 704(c) of the Code that takes into account the variation between the Agreed Value of such property and its adjusted basis at the time of contribution; and (B) any item of Residual Gain or Residual Loss attributable to a Contributed Property shall be allocated among the Partners in the same manner as its correlative item of "book" gain or loss is allocated pursuant to Section 6.1. (ii) (A) In the case of an Adjusted Property, such items shall (1) first, be allocated among the Partners in a manner consistent with the principles of Section 704(c) of the Code to take into account the Unrealized Gain or Unrealized Loss attributable to such property and the allocations thereof pursuant to Section 5.5(d)(i) or 5.5(d)(ii), and (2) second, in the event such property was originally a Contributed Property, be allocated among the Partners in a manner consistent with Section 6.2(b)(i)(A); and (B) any item of Residual Gain or Residual Loss attributable to an Adjusted Property shall be allocated among the Partners in the same manner as its correlative item of "book" gain or loss is allocated pursuant to Section 6.1. (iii) The General Partner shall apply the principles of Treasury Regulation Section 1.704-3(d) to eliminate Book-Tax Disparities. (c) For the proper administration of the Partnership and for the preservation of uniformity of the Units or other limited partner interests of the MLP (or any class or classes thereof), the General Partner shall have sole discretion to (i) adopt such conventions as it deems appropriate in determining the amount of depreciation, amortization and cost recovery deductions; (ii) make special allocations for federal income tax purposes of income (including, without limitation, gross income) or deductions; and (iii) amend the provisions of this Agreement as appropriate (x) to reflect the proposal or promulgation of Treasury Regulations under Section 704(b) or Section 704(c) of the Code or (y) otherwise to preserve or achieve uniformity of the Units or other limited partner interests of the MLP (or any class or classes thereof). The General Partner may adopt such conventions, make such allocations and make such amendments to this Agreement as provided in this Section 6.2(c) only if such conventions, allocations or 28

amendments would not have a material adverse effect on the Partners, the holders of any class or classes of Units or other limited partner interests of the MLP issued and outstanding or the Partnership, and if such allocations are consistent with the principles of Section 704 of the Code. (d) The General Partner in its discretion may determine to depreciate or amortize the portion of an adjustment under Section 743(b) of the Code attributable to unrealized appreciation in any Adjusted Property (to the extent of the unamortized Book-Tax Disparity) using a predetermined rate derived from the depreciation or amortization method and useful life applied to the Partnership's common basis of such property, despite any inconsistency of such approach with Treasury Regulation Section 1.167(c)-l(a)(6) or any successor regulations thereto. If the General Partner determines that such reporting position cannot reasonably be taken, the General Partner may adopt depreciation and amortization conventions under which all purchasers acquiring limited partner interests of the MLP in the same month would receive depreciation and amortization deductions, based upon the same applicable rate as if they had purchased a direct interest in the Partnership's property. If the General Partner chooses not to utilize such aggregate method, the General Partner may use any other reasonable depreciation and amortization conventions to preserve the uniformity of the intrinsic tax characteristics of any limited partner interests of the MLP that would not have a material adverse effect on the Partners or the holders of any class or classes of limited partner interests of the MLP. (e) Any gain allocated to the Partners upon the sale or other taxable disposition of any Partnership asset shall, to the extent possible, after taking into account other required allocations of gain pursuant to this Section 6.2, be characterized as Recapture Income in the same proportions and to the same extent as such Partners (or their predecessors in interest) have been allocated any deductions directly or indirectly giving rise to the treatment of such gains as Recapture Income. (f) All items of income, gain, loss, deduction and credit recognized by the Partnership for federal income tax purposes and allocated to the Partners in accordance with the provisions hereof shall be determined without regard to any election under Section 754 of the Code that may be made by the Partnership; provided, however, that such allocations, once made, shall be adjusted as necessary or appropriate to take into account those adjustments permitted or required by Sections 734 and 743 of the Code. (g) The General Partner may adopt such methods of allocation of income, gain, loss or deduction between a transferor and a transferee of a Partnership Interest as it determines necessary or appropriate in its sole discretion, to the extent permitted or required by Section 706 of the Code and the regulations or rulings promulgated thereunder. (h) Allocations that would otherwise be made to a Partner under the provisions of this Article VI shall instead be made to the beneficial owner of Partnership Interests held by a nominee in any case in which the nominee has furnished the identity of such owner to the Partnership in accordance with Section 6031(c) of the Code or any other method acceptable to the General Partner in its sole discretion. 29

Section 6.3. Distributions. (a) Within 45 days following the end of each Quarter commencing with the Quarter ending on March 31, 2002, an amount equal to 100% of Available Cash with respect to such Quarter shall, subject to Section 17-607 of the Delaware Act, be distributed in accordance with this Article VI by the Partnership to the Partners in accordance with their respective Percentage Interests. The immediately preceding sentence shall not require any distribution of cash if and to the extent such distribution would be prohibited by applicable law or by any loan agreement, security agreement, mortgage, debt instrument or other agreement or obligation to which the Partnership is a party or by which it is bound or its assets are subject. All distributions required to be made under this Agreement shall be made subject to Section 17-607 of the Delaware Act. (b) In the event of the dissolution and liquidation of the Partnership, all receipts received during or after the Quarter in which the Liquidation Date occurs, other than from borrowings described in (a)(ii) of the definition of Available Cash, shall be applied and distributed solely in accordance with, and subject to the terms and conditions of, Section 12.4. (c) The General Partner shall have the discretion to treat taxes paid by the Partnership on behalf of, or amounts withheld with respect to, all or less than all of the Partners, as a distribution of Available Cash to such Partners. ARTICLE VII. MANAGEMENT AND OPERATION OF BUSINESS Section 7.1. Management. (a) The General Partner shall conduct, direct and manage all activities of the Partnership. Except as otherwise expressly provided in this Agreement, all management powers over the business and affairs of the Partnership shall be exclusively vested in the General Partner, and no Limited Partner or Assignee shall have any management power over the business and affairs of the Partnership. In addition to the powers now or hereafter granted a general partner of a limited partnership under applicable law or that are granted to the General Partner under any other provision of this Agreement, the General Partner, subject to Section 7.3, shall have full power and authority to do all things and on such terms as it, in its sole discretion, may deem necessary or appropriate to conduct the business of the Partnership, to exercise all powers set forth in Section 2.5 and to effectuate the purposes set forth in Section 2.4, including the following: (i) the making of any expenditures, the lending or borrowing of money, the assumption or guarantee of, or other contracting for, indebtedness and other liabilities, the issuance of evidences of indebtedness, including indebtedness that is convertible into a Partnership Interest, and the incurring of any other obligations; (ii) the making of tax, regulatory and other filings, or rendering of periodic or other reports to governmental or other agencies having jurisdiction over the business or assets of the Partnership; 30

(iii) the acquisition, disposition, mortgage, pledge, encumbrance, hypothecation or exchange of any or all of the assets of the Partnership or the merger or other combination of the Partnership with or into another Person (the matters described in this clause (iii) being subject, however, to any prior approval that may be required by Section 7.3); (iv) the use of the assets of the Partnership (including cash on hand) for any purpose consistent with the terms of this Agreement, including the financing of the conduct of the operations of the Partnership Group; subject to Section 7.6, the lending of funds to other Persons (including the MLP and any member of the Partnership Group); the repayment of obligations of the MLP or any member of the Partnership Group and the making of capital contributions to any member of the Partnership Group; (v) the negotiation, execution and performance of any contracts, conveyances or other instruments (including instruments that limit the liability of the Partnership under contractual arrangements to all or particular assets of the Partnership, with the other party to the contract to have no recourse against the General Partner or its assets other than its interest in the Partnership, even if same results in the terms of the transaction being less favorable to the Partnership than would otherwise be the case); (vi) the distribution of Partnership cash; (vii) the selection and dismissal of employees (including employees having titles such as "president," "vice president," "secretary" and "treasurer") and agents, outside attorneys, accountants, consultants and contractors and the determination of their compensation and other terms of employment or hiring; (viii) the maintenance of such insurance for the benefit of the Partnership Group and the Partners as it deems necessary or appropriate; (ix) the formation of, or acquisition of an interest in, and the contribution of property and the making of loans to, any further limited or general partnerships, joint ventures, corporations, limited liability companies or other relationships subject to the restrictions set forth in Section 2.4; (x) the control of any matters affecting the rights and obligations of the Partnership, including the bringing and defending of actions at law or in equity and otherwise engaging in the conduct of litigation and the incurring of legal expense and the settlement of claims and litigation; and (xi) the indemnification of any Person against liabilities and contingencies to the extent permitted by law. (b) Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, the MLP Agreement, the Delaware Act or any applicable law, rule or regulation, each of the Partners and the Assignees and each other Person who may acquire an interest in the Partnership hereby (i) 31

approves, ratifies and confirms the execution, delivery and performance by the parties thereto of this Agreement, the Underwriting Agreement, the Indenture, the Omnibus Agreement, the Purchase Agreement, the Contribution Agreement, the Pipelines and Terminals Storage and Throughput Agreement and the other agreements and documents described in or filed as exhibits to the Registration Statement that are related to the transactions contemplated by the Registration Statement; (ii) agrees that the General Partner (on its own or through any officer of the Partnership) is authorized to execute, deliver and perform the agreements referred to in clause (i) of this sentence, as applicable, and the other agreements, acts, transactions and matters described in or contemplated by the Registration Statement on behalf of the Partnership without any further act, approval or vote of the Partners or the Assignees or the other Persons who may acquire an interest in the Partnership; and (iii) agrees that the execution, delivery or performance by the General Partner, the MLP, any Group Member or any Affiliate of any of them, of this Agreement or any agreement authorized or permitted under this Agreement (including the exercise by the General Partner or any Affiliate of the General Partner of the rights accorded pursuant to Article XV), shall not constitute a breach by the General Partner of any duty that the General Partner may owe the Partnership or the Limited Partners or any other Persons under this Agreement (or any other agreements) or of any duty stated or implied by law or equity. Section 7.2. Certificate of Limited Partnership. The General Partner has caused the Certificate of Limited Partnership to be filed with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware as required by the Delaware Act. The General Partner shall use all reasonable efforts to cause to be filed such other certificates or documents as may be determined by the General Partner in its sole discretion to be reasonable and necessary or appropriate for the formation, continuation, qualification and operation of a limited partnership (or a partnership in which the limited partners have limited liability) in the State of Delaware or any other state in which the Partnership may elect to do business or own property. To the extent that such action is determined by the General Partner in its sole discretion to be reasonable and necessary or appropriate, the General Partner shall file amendments to and restatements of the Certificate of Limited Partnership and do all things to maintain the Partnership as a limited partnership (or a partnership or other entity in which the limited partners have limited liability) under the laws of the State of Delaware or of any other state in which the Partnership may elect to do business or own property. Subject to the terms of Section 3.4(a), the General Partner shall not be required, before or after filing, to deliver or mail a copy of the Certificate of Limited Partnership, any qualification document or any amendment thereto to any Limited Partner or Assignee. Section 7.3. Restrictions on the General Partner's Authority. (a) The General Partner may not, without written approval of the specific act by the Limited Partners or by other written instrument executed and delivered by the Limited Partners subsequent to the date of this Agreement, take any action in contravention of this Agreement, including, except as otherwise provided in this Agreement, (i) committing any act that would make it impossible to carry on the ordinary business of the Partnership; (ii) possessing Partnership property, or assigning any rights in specific Partnership property, for other than a Partnership purpose; (iii) admitting a Person as a Partner; (iv) amending this Agreement in any manner; or (v) transferring its General Partner Interest. 32

(b) Except as provided in Articles XII and XIV, the General Partner may not sell, exchange or otherwise dispose of all or substantially all of the Partnership's assets in a single transaction or a series of related transactions (including by way of merger, consolidation or other combination) or approve on behalf of the Partnership the sale, exchange or other disposition of all or substantially all of the assets of the Partnership, without the approval of the Limited Partners; provided however that this provision shall not preclude or limit the General Partner's ability to mortgage, pledge, hypothecate or grant a security interest in all or substantially all of the assets of the Partnership and shall not apply to any forced sale of any or all of the assets of the Partnership pursuant to the foreclosure of, or other realization upon, any such encumbrance. Section 7.4. Reimbursement of the General Partner. (a) Except as provided in this Section 7.4 and elsewhere in this Agreement or in the Omnibus Agreement, the General Partner shall not be compensated for its services as General Partner or as general partner or managing member of any Group Member. (b) The General Partner shall be reimbursed on a monthly basis, or such other reasonable basis as the General Partner may determine in its sole discretion, for (i) all direct and indirect expenses it incurs or payments it makes on behalf of the Partnership (including salary, bonus, incentive compensation and other amounts paid to any Person including Affiliates of the General Partner to perform services for the Partnership or for the General Partner in the discharge of its duties to the Partnership), and (ii) all other necessary or appropriate expenses allocable to the Partnership or otherwise reasonably incurred by the General Partner in connection with operating the Partnership's business (including expenses allocated to the General Partner by its Affiliates). The General Partner shall determine the expenses that are allocable to the Partnership in any reasonable manner determined by the General Partner in its sole discretion. Reimbursements pursuant to this Section 7.4 shall be in addition to any reimbursement to the General Partner as a result of indemnification pursuant to Section 7.7. (c) Subject to Section 5.8, the General Partner, in its sole discretion and without the approval of the Limited Partners (who shall have no right to vote in respect thereof), may propose and adopt on behalf of the Partnership employee benefit plans, employee programs and employee practices, or cause the Partnership to issue Partnership Interests in connection with or pursuant to any employee benefit plan, employee program or employee practice maintained or sponsored by the General Partner or any of its Affiliates, in each case for the benefit of employees of the General Partner, any Group Member or any Affiliate, or any of them, in respect of services performed, directly or indirectly, for the benefit of the Partnership Group. Expenses incurred by the General Partner in connection with any such plans, programs and practices shall be reimbursed in accordance with Section 7.4(b). Any and all obligations of the General Partner under any employee benefit plans, employee programs or employee practices adopted by the General Partner as permitted by this Section 7.4(c) shall constitute obligations of the General Partner hereunder and shall be assumed by any successor General Partner approved pursuant to Section 11.1 or 11.2 or the transferee of or successor to all of the General Partner's General Partner Interest pursuant to Section 4.2. 33

Section 7.5. Outside Activities. (a) After the Closing Date, the General Partner, for so long as it is the General Partner of the Partnership, (i) agrees that its sole business will be to act as the General Partner of the Partnership and a general partner or managing member, as the case may be, of any other partnership or limited liability company of which the Partnership is, directly or indirectly, a partner or member, and to undertake activities that are ancillary or related thereto, (ii) except to the extent permitted in the Omnibus Agreement, shall not engage in any business or activity or incur any debts or liabilities except in connection with or incidental to (A) its performance as general partner of the Partnership or one or more Group Members or as described in or contemplated by the Registration Statement or (B) the acquiring, owning or disposing of debt or equity securities in any Group Member and (iii) except to the extent permitted in the Omnibus Agreement, shall not, and shall cause its Affiliates not to, engage in any Restricted Activities. (b) Sunoco, Inc. and certain of its Affiliates have entered into the Omnibus Agreement with the Partnership and the MLP, which agreement sets forth certain restrictions on the ability of Sunoco, Inc. and its Affiliates to engage in Restricted Activities. (c) Except as specifically restricted by Section 7.5(a) and the Omnibus Agreement, each Indemnitee (other than the General Partner) shall have the right to engage in businesses of every type and description and other activities for profit and to engage in and possess an interest in other business ventures of any and every type or description, whether in businesses engaged in or anticipated to be engaged in by the MLP or any Group Member, independently or with others, including business interests and activities in direct competition with the business and activities of the MLP or any Group Member, and none of the same shall constitute a breach of this Agreement or any duty express or implied by law to the MLP or any Group Member or any Partner or Assignee. Neither the MLP nor any Group Member, any Limited Partner nor any other Person shall have any rights by virtue of this Agreement, the MLP Agreement or the partnership relationship established hereby or thereby in any business ventures of any Indemnitee. (d) Subject to the terms of Section 7.5(a), Section 7.5(b), Section 7.5(c) and the Omnibus Agreement, but otherwise notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, (i) the engaging in competitive activities by any Indemnitee (other than the General Partner) in accordance with the provisions of this Section 7.5 is hereby approved by the Partnership and all Partners, (ii) it shall be deemed not to be a breach of the General Partner's fiduciary duty or any other obligation of any type whatsoever of the General Partner for the Indemnitees (other than the General Partner) to engage in such business interests and activities in preference to or to the exclusion of the Partnership and (iii) except as set forth in the Omnibus Agreement, the General Partner and the Indemnitees shall have no obligation to present business opportunities to the Partnership. (e) The General Partner and any of its Affiliates may acquire Units or other MLP Securities in addition to those acquired on the Closing Date and, except as otherwise provided in this Agreement, shall be entitled to exercise all rights relating to such Units or MLP Securities. 34

(f) The term "Affiliates" when used in Section 7.5(a) and Section 7.5(e) with respect to the General Partner shall not include any Group Member or any Subsidiary of the MLP or any Group Member. (g) Anything in this Agreement to the contrary notwithstanding, to the extent that provisions of Sections 7.7, 7.8, 7.9, 7.10 or other Sections of this Agreement purport or are interpreted to have the effect of restricting the fiduciary duties that might otherwise, as a result of Delaware or other applicable law, be owed by the General Partner to the Partnership and its Limited Partners, or to constitute a waiver or consent by the Limited Partners to any such restriction, such provisions shall be inapplicable and have no effect in determining whether the General Partner has complied with its fiduciary duties in connection with determinations made by it under this Section 7.5. Section 7.6. Loans from the General Partner; Loans or Contributions from the Partnership; Contracts with Affiliates; Certain Restrictions on the General Partner. (a) The General Partner or any of its Affiliates may lend to the MLP or any Group Member, and the MLP or any Group Member may borrow from the General Partner or any of its Affiliates, funds needed or desired by the MLP or the Group Member for such periods of time and in such amounts as the General Partner may determine; provided, however, that in any such case the lending party may not charge the borrowing party interest at a rate greater than the rate that would be charged the borrowing party or impose terms less favorable to the borrowing party than would be charged or imposed on the borrowing party by unrelated lenders on comparable loans made on an arm's-length basis (without reference to the lending party's financial abilities or guarantees). The borrowing party shall reimburse the lending party for any costs (other than any additional interest costs) incurred by the lending party in connection with the borrowing of such funds. For purposes of this Section 7.6(a) and Section 7.6(b), the term "Group Member" shall include any Affiliate of a Group Member that is controlled by the Group Member. No Group Member may lend funds to the General Partner or any of its Affiliates (other than the MLP, a subsidiary of the MLP or a subsidiary of another Group Member), otherwise than as provided in the Treasury Services Agreement. (b) The Partnership may lend or contribute to any Group Member, and any Group Member may borrow from the Partnership, funds on terms and conditions established in the sole discretion of the General Partner; provided, however, that the Partnership may not charge the Group Member interest at a rate less than the rate that would be charged to the Group Member (without reference to the General Partner's financial abilities or guarantees) by unrelated lenders on comparable loans. The foregoing authority shall be exercised by the General Partner in its sole discretion and shall not create any right or benefit in favor of any Group Member or any other Person. (c) The General Partner may itself, or may enter into an agreement with the MLP General Partner or any of its Affiliates to, render services to a Group Member or to the General Partner in the discharge of its duties as general partner of the Partnership. Any services rendered to a Group Member by the General Partner, the MLP General Partner or any of their Affiliates shall be on terms that are fair and reasonable to the Partnership; provided, however, that the requirements of this Section 7.6(c) shall be deemed satisfied as to (i) any transaction 35

approved by Special Approval, (ii) any transaction, the terms of which are no less favorable to the Partnership Group than those generally being provided to or available from unrelated third parties or (iii) any transaction that, taking into account the totality of the relationships between the parties involved (including other transactions that may be particularly favorable or advantageous to the Partnership Group), is equitable to the Partnership Group. The provisions of Section 7.4 shall apply to the rendering of services described in this Section 7.6(c). (d) The Partnership Group may transfer assets to joint ventures, other partnerships, corporations, limited liability companies or other business entities in which it is or thereby becomes a participant upon such terms and subject to such conditions as are consistent with this Agreement and applicable law. (e) Neither the General Partner nor any of its Affiliates shall sell, transfer or convey any property to, or purchase any property from, the Partnership, directly or indirectly, except pursuant to transactions that are fair and reasonable to the Partnership; provided, however, that the requirements of this Section 7.6(e) shall be deemed to be satisfied as to (i) the transactions effected pursuant to Sections 5.2 and 5.3, the Contribution Agreement and any other transactions described in or contemplated by the Registration Statement, (ii) any transaction approved by Special Approval, (iii) any transaction, the terms of which are no less favorable to the Partnership than those generally being provided to or available from unrelated third parties, or (iv) any transaction that, taking into account the totality of the relationships between the parties involved (including other transactions that may be particularly favorable or advantageous to the Partnership Group), is equitable to the Partnership. (f) The General Partner and its Affiliates will have no obligation to permit any Group Member to use any facilities or assets of the General Partner and its Affiliates, except as may be provided in contracts entered into from time to time specifically dealing with such use, nor shall there be any obligation on the part of the General Partner or its Affiliates to enter into such contracts. (g) Without limitation of Sections 7.6(a) through 7.6(f), and notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, the existence of the conflicts of interest described in the Registration Statement are hereby approved by all Partners. Section 7.7. Indemnification. (a) To the fullest extent permitted by law but subject to the limitations expressly provided in this Agreement, all Indemnitees shall be indemnified and held harmless by the Partnership from and against any and all losses, claims, damages, liabilities, joint or several, expenses (including legal fees and expenses), judgments, fines, penalties, interest, settlements or other amounts arising from any and all claims, demands, actions, suits or proceedings, whether civil, criminal, administrative or investigative, in which any Indemnitee may be involved, or is threatened to be involved, as a party or otherwise, by reason of its status as an Indemnitee; provided, that in each case the Indemnitee acted in good faith and in a manner that such Indemnitee reasonably believed to be in, or (in the case of a Person other than the General Partner) not opposed to, the best interests of the Partnership and, with respect to any criminal proceeding, had no reasonable cause to believe its conduct was unlawful; provided, further, no 36

indemnification pursuant to this Section 7.7 shall be available to the General Partner with respect to its obligations incurred pursuant to the Underwriting Agreement or the Contribution Agreement (other than obligations incurred by the General Partner on behalf of the Partnership). The termination of any action, suit or proceeding by judgment, order, settlement, conviction or upon a plea of nolo contendere, or its equivalent, shall not create a presumption that the Indemnitee acted in a manner contrary to that specified above. Any indemnification pursuant to this Section 7.7 shall be made only out of the assets of the Partnership, it being agreed that the General Partner shall not be personally liable for such indemnification and shall have no obligation to contribute or loan any monies or property to the Partnership to enable it to effectuate such indemnification. (b) To the fullest extent permitted by law, expenses (including legal fees and expenses) incurred by an Indemnitee who is indemnified pursuant to Section 7.7(a) in defending any claim, demand, action, suit or proceeding shall, from time to time, be advanced by the Partnership prior to the final disposition of such claim, demand, action, suit or proceeding upon receipt by the Partnership of any undertaking by or on behalf of the Indemnitee to repay such amount if it shall be determined that the Indemnitee is not entitled to be indemnified as authorized in this Section 7.7. (c) The indemnification provided by this Section 7.7 shall be in addition to any other rights to which an Indemnitee may be entitled under any agreement, pursuant to any vote of the Partners, as a matter of law or otherwise, both as to actions in the Indemnitee's capacity as an Indemnitee and as to actions in any other capacity (including any capacity under the Underwriting Agreement), and shall continue as to an Indemnitee who has ceased to serve in such capacity and shall inure to the benefit of the heirs, successors, assigns and administrators of the Indemnitee. (d) The Partnership may purchase and maintain (or reimburse the General Partner or its Affiliates for the cost of) insurance, on behalf of the General Partner, its Affiliates and such other Persons as the General Partner shall determine, against any liability that may be asserted against or expense that may be incurred by such Person in connection with the Partnership's activities or such Person's activities on behalf of the Partnership, regardless of whether the Partnership would have the power to indemnify such Person against such liability under the provisions of this Agreement. (e) For purposes of this Section 7.7, the Partnership shall be deemed to have requested an Indemnitee to serve as fiduciary of an employee benefit plan whenever the performance by it of its duties to the Partnership also imposes duties on, or otherwise involves services by, it to the plan or participants or beneficiaries of the plan; excise taxes assessed on an Indemnitee with respect to an employee benefit plan pursuant to applicable law shall constitute "fines" within the meaning of Section 7.7(a); and action taken or omitted by it with respect to any employee benefit plan in the performance of its duties for a purpose reasonably believed by it to be in the interest of the participants and beneficiaries of the plan shall be deemed to be for a purpose that is in, or not opposed to, the best interests of the Partnership. (f) In no event may an Indemnitee subject the Limited Partners to personal liability by reason of the indemnification provisions set forth in this Agreement. 37

(g) An Indemnitee shall not be denied indemnification in whole or in part under this Section 7.7 because the Indemnitee had an interest in the transaction with respect to which the indemnification applies if the transaction was otherwise permitted by the terms of this Agreement. (h) The provisions of this Section 7.7 are for the benefit of the Indemnitees, their heirs, successors, assigns and administrators and shall not be deemed to create any rights for the benefit of any other Persons. (i) No amendment, modification or repeal of this Section 7.7 or any provision hereof shall in any manner terminate, reduce or impair the right of any past, present or future Indemnitee to be indemnified by the Partnership, nor the obligations of the Partnership to indemnify any such Indemnitee under and in accordance with the provisions of this Section 7.7 as in effect immediately prior to such amendment, modification or repeal with respect to claims arising from or relating to matters occurring, in whole or in part, prior to such amendment, modification or repeal, regardless of when such claims may arise or be asserted. Section 7.8. Liability of Indemnitees. (a) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary set forth in this Agreement, no Indemnitee shall be liable for monetary damages to the Partnership, the Limited Partners, the Assignees or any other Persons who have acquired interests in the Units or other MLP Securities, for losses sustained or liabilities incurred as a result of any act or omission if such Indemnitee acted in good faith. (b) Subject to its obligations and duties as General Partner set forth in Section 7.1(a), the General Partner may exercise any of the powers granted to it by this Agreement and perform any of the duties imposed upon it hereunder either directly or by or through its agents, and the General Partner shall not be responsible for any misconduct or negligence on the part of any such agent appointed by the General Partner in good faith. (c) To the extent that, at law or in equity, an Indemnitee has duties (including fiduciary duties) and liabilities relating thereto to the Partnership or to the Partners, the General Partner and any other Indemnitee acting in connection with the Partnership's business or affairs shall not be liable to the Partnership or to any Partner for its good faith reliance on the provisions of this Agreement. The provisions of this Agreement, to the extent that they restrict or otherwise modify the duties and liabilities of an Indemnitee otherwise existing at law or in equity, are agreed by the Partners to replace such other duties and liabilities of such Indemnitee. (d) Any amendment, modification or repeal of this Section 7.8 or any provision hereof shall be prospective only and shall not in any way affect the limitations on the liability to the Partnership, the Limited Partners, the General Partner, and the Partnership's and General Partner's directors, officers and employees under this Section 7.8 as in effect immediately prior to such amendment, modification or repeal with respect to claims arising from or relating to matters occurring, in whole or in part, prior to such amendment, modification or repeal, regardless of when such claims may arise or be asserted. 38

Section 7.9. Resolution of Conflicts of Interest. (a) Unless otherwise expressly provided in this Agreement or the MLP Agreement, whenever a potential conflict of interest exists or arises between the General Partner or any of its Affiliates, on the one hand, and the Partnership, the MLP, any Partner or any Assignee, on the other, any resolution or course of action by the General Partner or its Affiliates in respect of such conflict of interest shall be permitted and deemed approved by all Partners, and shall not constitute a breach of this Agreement, of the MLP Agreement, of any agreement contemplated herein or therein, or of any duty stated or implied by law or equity, if the resolution or course of action is, or by operation of this Agreement is deemed to be, fair and reasonable to the Partnership. The General Partner shall be authorized but not required in connection with its resolution of such conflict of interest to seek Special Approval of such resolution. Any such approval shall be subject to the presumption that, in making its decision, the Conflicts Committee acted on an informed basis, in good faith and in the honest belief that the action taken was in the best interests of the Partnership and the MLP and, in any proceeding brought by any Limited Partner or by or on behalf of such Limited Partner or any other Limited Partners or the Partnership challenging such approval, the Person bringing or prosecuting such proceeding shall have the burden of overcoming such presumption. Any conflict of interest and any resolution of such conflict of interest shall be conclusively deemed fair and reasonable to the Partnership if such conflict of interest or resolution is (i) approved by Special Approval, (ii) on terms no less favorable to the Partnership than those generally being provided to or available from unrelated third parties or (iii) fair to the Partnership, taking into account the totality of the relationships between the parties involved (including other transactions that may be particularly favorable or advantageous to the Partnership). The General Partner may also adopt a resolution or course of action that has not received Special Approval. The General Partner (including the Conflicts Committee in connection with Special Approval) shall be authorized in connection with its determination of what is "fair and reasonable" to the Partnership and in connection with its resolution of any conflict of interest to consider (A) the relative interests of any party to such conflict, agreement, transaction or situation and the benefits and burdens relating to such interest; (B) any customary or accepted industry practices and any customary or historical dealings with a particular Person; (C) any applicable generally accepted accounting practices or principles; and (D) such additional factors as the General Partner (including the Conflicts Committee) determines in its sole discretion to be relevant, reasonable or appropriate under the circumstances. In any proceeding brought by any Limited Partner or by or on behalf of such Limited Partner or any other Limited Partners or the Partnership alleging that such a resolution by the General Partner (and not by the Conflicts Committee, whose resolution shall be conclusive as provided above) is not fair to the Partnership, such Limited Partner shall have the burden of proof of overcoming such conclusion. Nothing contained in this Agreement, however, is intended to nor shall it be construed to require the General Partner (including the Conflicts Committee) to consider the interests of any Person other than the Partnership. In the absence of bad faith by the General Partner, the resolution, action or terms so made, taken or provided by the General Partner with respect to such matter shall not constitute a breach of this Agreement or any other agreement contemplated herein or a breach of any standard of care or duty imposed herein or therein or, to the extent permitted by law, under the Delaware Act or any other law, rule or regulation. 39

(b) Whenever this Agreement or any other agreement contemplated hereby provides that the General Partner or any of its Affiliates is permitted or required to make a decision (i) in its "sole discretion" or "discretion," that it deems "necessary or appropriate" or "necessary or advisable" or under a grant of similar authority or latitude, except as otherwise provided herein, the General Partner or such Affiliate shall be entitled to consider only such interests and factors as it desires and shall have no duty or obligation to give any consideration to any interest of, or factors affecting, the Partnership, the MLP, any Limited Partner or any Assignee, (ii) it may make such decision in its sole discretion (regardless of whether there is a reference to "sole discretion" or "discretion") unless another express standard is provided for, or (iii) in "good faith" or under another express standard, the General Partner or such Affiliate shall act under such express standard and shall not be subject to any other or different standards imposed by this Agreement, the MLP Agreement, any other agreement contemplated hereby or under the Delaware Act or any other law, rule or regulation. In addition, any actions taken by the General Partner or such Affiliate consistent with the standards of "reasonable discretion" set forth in the definition of Available Cash shall not constitute a breach of any duty of the General Partner to the Partnership or the Limited Partners. The General Partner shall have no duty, express or implied, to sell or otherwise dispose of any asset of the Partnership Group other than in the ordinary course of business. No borrowing by any Group Member or the approval thereof by the General Partner shall be deemed to constitute a breach of any duty of the General Partner to the Partnership or the Limited Partners by reason of the fact that the purpose or effect of such borrowing is directly or indirectly to (A) enable distributions to the General Partner or its Affiliates to exceed 0.01% of the total amount distributed to all Partners or (B) hasten the expiration of the Subordination Period or the conversion of any Subordinated Units into Common Units. (c) Whenever a particular transaction, arrangement or resolution of a conflict of interest is required under this Agreement to be "fair and reasonable" to any Person, the fair and reasonable nature of such transaction, arrangement or resolution shall be considered in the context of all similar or related transactions. (d) The Limited Partner hereby authorizes the General Partner, on behalf of the Partnership as a partner or member of a Group Member, to approve of actions by the general partner or managing member of such Group Member similar to those actions permitted to be taken by the General Partner pursuant to this Section 7.9. Section 7.10. Other Matters Concerning the General Partner. (a) The General Partner may rely and shall be protected in acting or refraining from acting upon any resolution, certificate, statement, instrument, opinion, report, notice, request, consent, order, bond, debenture or other paper or document believed by it to be genuine and to have been signed or presented by the proper party or parties. (b) The General Partner may consult with legal counsel, accountants, appraisers, management consultants, investment bankers and other consultants and advisers selected by it, and any act taken or omitted to be taken in reliance upon the opinion (including an Opinion of Counsel) of such Persons as to matters that the General Partner reasonably believes to 40

be within such Person's professional or expert competence shall be conclusively presumed to have been done or omitted in good faith and in accordance with such opinion. (c) The General Partner shall have the right, in respect of any of its powers or obligations hereunder, to act through any of its duly authorized officers, a duly appointed attorney or attorneys-in-fact or the duly authorized officers of the Partnership. (d) Any standard of care and duty imposed by this Agreement or under the Delaware Act or any applicable law, rule or regulation shall be modified, waived or limited, to the extent permitted by law, as required to permit the General Partner to act under this Agreement or any other agreement contemplated by this Agreement and to make any decision pursuant to the authority prescribed in this Agreement, so long as such action is reasonably believed by the General Partner to be in, or not inconsistent with, the best interests of the Partnership. Section 7.11. Reliance by Third Parties. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, any Person dealing with the Partnership shall be entitled to assume that the General Partner and any officer of the General Partner authorized by the General Partner to act on behalf of and in the name of the Partnership has full power and authority to encumber, sell or otherwise use in any manner any and all assets of the Partnership and to enter into any authorized contracts on behalf of the Partnership, and such Person shall be entitled to deal with the General Partner or any such officer as if it were the Partnership's sole party in interest, both legally and beneficially. Each Limited Partner hereby waives any and all defenses or other remedies that may be available against such Person to contest, negate or disaffirm any action of the General Partner or any such officer in connection with any such dealing. In no event shall any Person dealing with the General Partner or any such officer or its representatives be obligated to ascertain that the terms of the Agreement have been complied with or to inquire into the necessity or expedience of any act or action of the General Partner or any such officer or its representatives. Each and every certificate, document or other instrument executed on behalf of the Partnership by the General Partner or its representatives shall be conclusive evidence in favor of any and every Person relying thereon or claiming thereunder that (a) at the time of the execution and delivery of such certificate, document or instrument, this Agreement was in full force and effect, (b) the Person executing and delivering such certificate, document or instrument was duly authorized and empowered to do so for and on behalf of the Partnership and (c) such certificate, document or instrument was duly executed and delivered in accordance with the terms and provisions of this Agreement and is binding upon the Partnership. ARTICLE VIII. BOOKS, RECORDS AND ACCOUNTING Section 8.1. Records and Accounting. The General Partner shall keep or cause to be kept at the principal office of the Partnership appropriate books and records with respect to the Partnership's business, including all books and records necessary to provide to the Limited Partners any information required to be 41

provided pursuant to Section 3.4(a). Any books and records maintained by or on behalf of the Partnership in the regular course of its business, including books of account and records of Partnership proceedings, may be kept on, or be in the form of, computer disks, hard drives, punch cards, magnetic tape, photographs, micrographics or any other information storage device; provided, that the books and records so maintained are convertible into clearly legible written form within a reasonable period of time. The books of the Partnership shall be maintained, for financial reporting purposes, on an accrual basis in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Section 8.2. Fiscal Year. The fiscal year of the Partnership shall be a fiscal year ending December 31. ARTICLE IX. TAX MATTERS Section 9.1. Tax Returns and Information. The Partnership shall timely file all returns of the Partnership that are required for federal, state and local income tax purposes on the basis of the accrual method and a taxable year ending on December 31. The tax information reasonably required by the Partners for federal and state income tax reporting purposes with respect to a taxable year shall be furnished to them within 90 days of the close of the calendar year in which the Partnership's taxable year ends. The classification, realization and recognition of income, gain, losses and deductions and other items shall be on the accrual method of accounting for federal income tax purposes. Section 9.2. Tax Elections. (a) To the extent applicable for federal income tax purposes, the Partnership shall make the election under Section 754 of the Code in accordance with applicable regulations thereunder, subject to the reservation of the right to seek to revoke any such election upon the General Partner's determination that such revocation is in the best interests of the Limited Partners. (b) To the extent applicable for federal income tax purposes, the Partnership shall elect to deduct expenses incurred in organizing the Partnership ratably over a sixty-month period as provided in Section 709 of the Code. (c) Except as otherwise provided herein, the General Partner shall determine whether the Partnership should make any other elections permitted by the Code. Section 9.3. Tax Controversies. Subject to the provisions hereof, the General Partner is designated as the Tax Matters Partner (as defined in the Code) and is authorized and required to represent the Partnership (at the Partnership's expense) in connection with all examinations of the Partnership's affairs by tax authorities, including resulting administrative and judicial proceedings, and to expend Partnership funds for professional services and costs associated therewith. Each Partner agrees 42

to cooperate with the General Partner and to do or refrain from doing any or all things reasonably required by the General Partner to conduct such proceedings. Section 9.4. Withholding. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, the General Partner is authorized to take any action that it determines in its discretion to be necessary or appropriate to cause the Partnership to comply with any withholding requirements established under the Code or any other federal, state or local law including, without limitation, pursuant to Sections 1441, 1442, 1445 and 1446 of the Code. To the extent that the Partnership is required or elects to withhold and pay over to any taxing authority any amount resulting from the allocation or distribution of income to any Partner or Assignee (including, without limitation, by reason of Section 1446 of the Code), the amount withheld may at the discretion of the General Partner be treated by the Partnership as a distribution of cash pursuant to Section 6.3 in the amount of such withholding from such Partner. ARTICLE X. ADMISSION OF PARTNERS Section 10.1. Admission of Partners. Upon the consummation of the transfers and conveyances described in Section 5.2, the General Partner shall be the sole general partner of the Partnership and the MLP shall be the sole limited partner of the Partnership. Section 10.2. Admission of Substituted Limited Partner. By transfer of a Limited Partner Interest in accordance with Article IV, the transferor shall be deemed to have given the transferee the right to seek admission as a Substituted Limited Partner subject to the conditions of, and in the manner permitted under, this Agreement. A transferor of a Limited Partner Interest shall, however, only have the authority to convey to a purchaser or other transferee (a) the right to negotiate such Limited Partner Interest to a purchaser or other transferee and (b) the right to request admission as a Substituted Limited Partner to such purchaser or other transferee in respect of the transferred Limited Partner Interests. Each transferee of a Limited Partner Interest shall be an Assignee and be deemed to have applied to become a Substituted Limited Partner with respect to the Limited Partner Interests so transferred to such Person. Such Assignee shall become a Substituted Limited Partner (x) at such time as the General Partner consents thereto, which consent may be given or withheld in the General Partner's discretion, and (y) when any such admission is shown on the books and records of the Partnership. If such consent is withheld, such transferee shall remain an Assignee. An Assignee shall have an interest in the Partnership equivalent to that of a Limited Partner with respect to allocations and distributions, including liquidating distributions, of the Partnership. With respect to voting rights attributable to Limited Partner Interests that are held by Assignees, the General Partner shall be deemed to be the Limited Partner with respect thereto and shall, in exercising the voting rights in respect of such Limited Partner Interests on any matter, vote such Limited Partner Interests at the written direction of the Assignee. If no such written direction is received, such Partnership Interests will not be voted. An Assignee shall have no other rights of a Limited Partner. 43

Section 10.3. Admission of Additional Limited Partners. (a) A Person (other than the General Partner, the MLP or a Substituted Limited Partner) who makes a Capital Contribution to the Partnership in accordance with this Agreement shall be admitted to the Partnership as an Additional Limited Partner only upon furnishing to the General Partner: (i) evidence of acceptance in form satisfactory to the General Partner of all of the terms and conditions of this Agreement, including the power of attorney granted in Section 2.6, and (ii) such other documents or instruments as may be required in the discretion of the General Partner to effect such Person's admission as an Additional Limited Partner. (b) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Section 10.3, no Person shall be admitted as an Additional Limited Partner without the consent of the General Partner, which consent may be given or withheld in the General Partner's discretion. The admission of any Person as an Additional Limited Partner shall become effective on the date upon which the name of such Person is recorded as such in the books and records of the Partnership, following the consent of the General Partner to such admission. Section 10.4. Admission of Successor or Transferee General Partner. A successor General Partner approved pursuant to Section 11.1 or 11.2 or the transferee of or successor to all of the General Partner's Partnership Interest pursuant to Section 4.2 who is proposed to be admitted as a successor General Partner shall, subject to compliance with the terms of Section 11.3, if applicable, be admitted to the Partnership as the General Partner, effective immediately prior to the withdrawal or removal of the predecessor or transferring General Partner pursuant to Section 11.1 or 11.2 or the transfer of the General Partner Interest pursuant to Section 4.2, provided, however, that no such successor shall be admitted to the Partnership until compliance with the terms of Section 4.2 has occurred and such successor has executed and delivered such other documents or instruments as may be required to effect such admission. Any such successor shall, subject to the terms hereof, carry on the business of the members of the Partnership Group without dissolution. Section 10.5. Amendment of Agreement and Certificate of Limited Partnership. To effect the admission to the Partnership of any Partner, the General Partner shall take all steps necessary and appropriate under the Delaware Act to amend the records of the Partnership to reflect such admission and, if necessary, to prepare as soon as practicable an amendment to this Agreement and, if required by law, the General Partner shall prepare and file an amendment to the Certificate of Limited Partnership, and the General Partner may for this purpose, among others, exercise the power of attorney granted pursuant to Section 2.6. 44

ARTICLE XI. WITHDRAWAL OR REMOVAL OF PARTNERS Section 11.1. Withdrawal of the General Partner.

If an Event of Withdrawal specified in Section 11.1(a)(iv), (v) or (vi)(A), (B), (C) or (E) occurs, the withdrawing General Partner shall give notice to the Limited Partners within 30 days after such occurrence. The Partners hereby agree that only the Events of Withdrawal described in this Section 11.1 shall result in the withdrawal of the General Partner from the Partnership. 45

(b) Withdrawal of the General Partner from the Partnership upon the occurrence of an Event of Withdrawal shall not constitute a breach of this Agreement under the following circumstances: (i) at any time during the period beginning on the Closing Date and ending at 12:00 midnight, Eastern Standard Time, on December 31, 2011, the General Partner voluntarily withdraws by giving at least 90 days' advance notice of its intention to withdraw to the Limited Partners; provided that prior to the effective date of such withdrawal, the withdrawal is approved by the Limited Partners and the General Partner delivers to the Partnership an Opinion of Counsel ("Withdrawal Opinion of Counsel") that ----------------------------- such withdrawal (following the selection of the successor General Partner) would not result in the loss of the limited liability of any Limited Partner or of the limited partners of the MLP or cause the Partnership or the MLP to be treated as an association taxable as a corporation or otherwise to be taxed as an entity for federal income tax purposes (to the extent not previously treated as such); (ii) at any time after 12:00 midnight, Eastern Standard Time, on December 31, 2011, the General Partner voluntarily withdraws by giving at least 90 days' advance notice to the Limited Partners, such withdrawal to take effect on the date specified in such notice; (iii) at any time that the General Partner ceases to be the General Partner pursuant to Section 11.1(a)(ii) or (iii). If the General Partner gives a notice of withdrawal pursuant to Section 11.1(a)(i) hereof, the Limited Partners may, prior to the effective date of such withdrawal, elect a successor General Partner. If, prior to the effective date of the General Partner's withdrawal, a successor is not selected by the Limited Partners as provided herein or the Partnership does not receive a Withdrawal Opinion of Counsel, the Partnership shall be dissolved in accordance with Section 12.1. Any successor General Partner elected in accordance with the terms of this Section 11.1 shall be subject to the provisions of Section 10.3. Section 11.2. Removal of the General Partner. The General Partner may be removed by the MLP. Upon the removal of the General Partner by the MLP, the MLP shall elect a successor general partner for the Partnership. The admission of any such successor General Partner to the Partnership shall be subject to the provisions of Section 10.3. Section 11.3. Interest of Departing Partner. (a) The Partnership Interest of the Departing Partner departing as a result of withdrawal or removal pursuant to Section 11.1 or 11.2 shall be purchased by the successor to the Departing Partner for an amount in cash equal to the fair market value of such Partnership Interest, such amount to be determined and payable as of the effective date of the Departing Partner's departure. Such purchase shall be a condition to the admission to the Partnership of the successor as the General Partner. Any successor General Partner shall indemnify the Departing Partner as to all debts and liabilities of the Partnership arising on or after the effective date of the withdrawal or removal of the Departing Partner. For purposes of this Section 11.3(a), the fair market value of the Departing Partner's General Partner Interest shall be determined by agreement between the Departing Partner and its successor or, failing agreement within 30 days after the effective date of such Departing Partner's departure, by an independent investment banking firm or other independent expert selected by the Departing Partner and its successor, which, in turn, may rely on other 46

experts, and the determination of which shall be conclusive as to such matter. If such parties cannot agree upon one independent investment banking firm or other independent expert within 45 days after the effective date of such departure, then the Departing Partner shall designate an independent investment banking firm or other independent expert, the Departing Partner's successor shall designate an independent investment banking firm or other independent expert, and such firms or experts shall mutually select a third independent investment banking firm or independent expert, which third independent investment banking firm or other independent expert shall determine the fair market value of the General Partner Interest of the Departing Partner. In making its determination, such third independent investment banking firm or other independent expert may consider the value of the Partnership's assets, the rights and obligations of the Departing Partner and other factors it may deem relevant. (b) The Departing Partner shall be entitled to receive all reimbursements due such Departing Partner pursuant to Section 7.4, including any employee-related liabilities (including severance liabilities), incurred in connection with the termination of any employees employed by such Departing Partner for the benefit of the Partnership. Section 11.4. Withdrawal of a Limited Partner. Without the prior written consent of the General Partner, which may be granted or withheld in its sole discretion, and except as provided in Section 10.1, no Limited Partner shall have the right to withdraw from the Partnership. ARTICLE XII. DISSOLUTION AND LIQUIDATION Section 12.1. Dissolution. The Partnership shall not be dissolved by the admission of Substituted Limited Partners or Additional Limited Partners or by the admission of a successor General Partner in accordance with the terms of this Agreement. Upon the removal or withdrawal of the General Partner, if a successor General Partner is elected pursuant to Section 11.1 or 11.2, the Partnership shall not be dissolved and such successor General Partner shall continue the business of the Partnership. The Partnership shall dissolve, and (subject to Section 12.2) its affairs shall be wound up, upon: (a) an Event of Withdrawal of the General Partner as provided in Section 11.1(a) (other than Section 11.1(a)(ii)), unless a successor is elected and an Opinion of Counsel is received as provided in Section 11.1(b) or 11.2 and such successor is admitted to the Partnership pursuant to Section 10.4; (b) an election to dissolve the Partnership by the General Partner that is approved by all of the Limited Partners; (c) the entry of a decree of judicial dissolution of the Partnership pursuant to the provisions of the Delaware Act; (d) the sale of all or substantially all of the assets and properties of the Partnership Group; or 47

(e) the dissolution of the MLP. Section 12.2. Continuation of the Business of the Partnership After Dissolution. Upon dissolution of the Partnership following an Event of Withdrawal caused by the withdrawal or removal of the General Partner as provided in Section 11.1(a)(i) or (iii) and the failure of the Partners to select a successor to such Departing Partner pursuant to Section 11.1 or 11.2, then within 90 days thereafter, all of the Limited Partners may elect to reconstitute the Partnership and continue its business on the same terms and conditions set forth in this Agreement by forming a new limited partnership on terms identical to those set forth in this Agreement and having as a general partner a Person approved by a majority in interest of the Limited Partners. In addition, upon dissolution of the Partnership pursuant to Section 12.1(e), if the MLP is reconstituted pursuant to Section 12.2 of the MLP Agreement, the reconstituted MLP may, within 180 days after such event of dissolution, acting alone, regardless of whether there are any other Limited Partners, elect to reconstitute the Partnership in accordance with the immediately preceding sentence. Upon any such election by the Limited Partners or the MLP, as the case may be, all Partners shall be bound thereby and shall be deemed to have approved same. Unless such an election is made within the applicable time period as set forth above, the Partnership shall conduct only activities necessary to wind up its affairs. If such an election is so made, then: (a) the reconstituted Partnership shall continue unless earlier dissolved in accordance with this Article XII; (b) if the successor General Partner is not the former General Partner, then the interest of the former General Partner shall be purchased by the successor General Partner; and (c) all necessary steps shall be taken to cancel this Agreement and the Certificate of Limited Partnership and to enter into and, as necessary, to file, a new partnership agreement and certificate of limited partnership, and the successor General Partner may for this purpose exercise the powers of attorney granted the General Partner pursuant to Section 2.6; provided, that the right to approve a successor General Partner and to reconstitute and to continue the business of the Partnership shall not exist and may not be exercised unless the Partnership has received an Opinion of Counsel that (x) the exercise of the right would not result in the loss of limited liability of the Limited Partners or any limited partner of the MLP and (y) neither the Partnership, the reconstituted limited partnership, the MLP nor any Group Member would be treated as an association taxable as a corporation or otherwise be taxable as an entity for federal income tax purposes upon the exercise of such right to continue. Section 12.3. Liquidator. Upon dissolution of the Partnership, unless the Partnership is continued under an election to reconstitute and continue the Partnership pursuant to Section 12.2, the General Partner shall select one or more Persons to act as Liquidator. The Liquidator (if other than the General Partner) shall be entitled to receive such compensation for its services as may be approved by a majority of the Limited Partners. The Liquidator (if other than the General Partner) shall agree not to resign at any time without 15 days' prior notice and may be removed at any time, with or 48

without cause, by notice of removal approved by a majority in interest of the Limited Partners. Upon dissolution, removal or resignation of the Liquidator, a successor and substitute Liquidator (who shall have and succeed to all rights, powers and duties of the original Liquidator) shall within 30 days thereafter be approved by at least a majority in interest of the Limited Partners. The right to approve a successor or substitute Liquidator in the manner provided herein shall be deemed to refer also to any such successor or substitute Liquidator approved in the manner herein provided. Except as expressly provided in this Article XII, the Liquidator approved in the manner provided herein shall have and may exercise, without further authorization or consent of any of the parties hereto, all of the powers conferred upon the General Partner under the terms of this Agreement (but subject to all of the applicable limitations, contractual and otherwise, upon the exercise of such powers, other than the limitation on sale set forth in Section 7.3(b)) to the extent necessary or desirable in the good faith judgment of the Liquidator to carry out the duties and functions of the Liquidator hereunder for and during such period of time as shall be reasonably required in the good faith judgment of the Liquidator to complete the winding up and liquidation of the Partnership as provided for herein. Section 12.4. Liquidation. The Liquidator shall proceed to dispose of the assets of the Partnership, discharge its liabilities, and otherwise wind up its affairs in such manner and over such period as the Liquidator determines to be in the best interest of the Partners, subject to Section 17-804 of the Delaware Act and the following: (a) Disposition of Assets. The assets may be disposed of by public or --------------------- private sale or by distribution in kind to one or more Partners on such terms as the Liquidator and such Partner or Partners may agree. If any property is distributed in kind, the Partner receiving the property shall be deemed for purposes of Section 12.4(c) to have received cash equal to its fair market value; and contemporaneously therewith, appropriate cash distributions must be made to the other Partners. The Liquidator may, in its absolute discretion, defer liquidation or distribution of the Partnership's assets for a reasonable time if it determines that an immediate sale or distribution of all or some of the Partnership's assets would be impractical or would cause undue loss to the Partners. The Liquidator may, in its absolute discretion, distribute the Partnership's assets, in whole or in part, in kind if it determines that a sale would be impractical or would cause undue loss to the Partners. (b) Discharge of Liabilities. Liabilities of the Partnership include ------------------------ amounts owed to the Liquidator as compensation for serving in such capacity (subject to the terms of Section 12.3) and amounts owed to Partners otherwise than in respect of their distribution rights under Article VI. With respect to any liability that is contingent, conditional or unmatured or is otherwise not yet due and payable, the Liquidator shall either settle such claim for such amount as it thinks appropriate or establish a reserve of cash or other assets to provide for its payment. When paid, any unused portion of the reserve shall be distributed as additional liquidation proceeds. (c) Liquidation Distributions. All property and all cash in excess of ------------------------- that required to discharge liabilities as provided in Section 12.4(b) shall be distributed to the Partners in accordance with, and to the extent of, the positive balances in their respective Capital 49

Accounts, as determined after taking into account all Capital Account adjustments (other than those made by reason of distributions pursuant to this Section 12.4(c)) for the taxable year of the Partnership during which the liquidation of the Partnership occurs (with such date of occurrence being determined pursuant to Treasury Regulation Section 1.704-1(b)(2)(ii)(g)), and such distribution shall be made by the end of such taxable year (or, if later, within 90 days after said date of such occurrence). Section 12.5. Cancellation of Certificate of Limited Partnership. Upon the completion of the distribution of Partnership cash and property as provided in Section 12.4 in connection with the liquidation of the Partnership, the Partnership shall be terminated and the Certificate of Limited Partnership, and all qualifications of the Partnership as a foreign limited partnership in jurisdictions other than the State of Delaware, shall be canceled and such other actions as may be necessary to terminate the Partnership shall be taken. Section 12.6. Return of Contributions. The General Partner shall not be personally liable for, and shall have no obligation to contribute or loan any monies or property to the Partnership to enable it to effectuate, the return of the Capital Contributions of the Limited Partners, or any portion thereof, it being expressly understood that any such return shall be made solely from Partnership assets. Section 12.7. Waiver of Partition. To the maximum extent permitted by law, each Partner hereby waives any right to partition of the Partnership property. Section 12.8. Capital Account Restoration. No Limited Partner shall have any obligation to restore any negative balance in its Capital Account upon liquidation of the Partnership. The General Partner shall be obligated to restore any negative balance in its Capital Account upon liquidation of its interest in the Partnership by the end of the taxable year of the Partnership during which such liquidation occurs, or, if later, within 90 days after the date of such liquidation. ARTICLE XIII. AMENDMENT OF PARTNERSHIP AGREEMENT Section 13.1. Amendment to be Adopted Solely by the General Partner.

The Members agree that a breach of the provisions of this Article IV may cause irreparable injury to the Company and to the other Members for which monetary damages (or other remedy at law) are inadequate in view of (a) the complexities and uncertainties in measuring the actual damages that would be sustained by reason of the failure of a Member to comply with such provision and (b) the uniqueness of the business and the relationship among the Members. Accordingly, the Members agree that the provisions of this Article IV may be enforced by specific performance. Section 4.02 Admission of Assignee as a Member.

At the time of the formation of the Company or contemporaneously with the adoption by the Members of this Agreement, as appropriate, each Member, as a result of its initial Capital Contribution, shall be deemed to have the Membership Interest in the Company as set forth next to the Member's name on Exhibit A. - ---------- The Members hereby agree that their Membership Interests shall be adjusted to reflect a final determination of the value of their Capital Contributions and the Company's assets.

Section 5.02 Loans. If the Company does not have sufficient cash to pay its obligations, any Member(s) that may agree to do so with the consent of the Board may advance all or part of the needed funds to or on behalf of the Company. An advance described in this Section 5.02 constitutes a loan from the Member to the Company, bears interest at a rate determined by the Board from the date of the advance until the date of payment and is not a Capital Contribution. Section 5.03 Return of Contributions. Except as expressly provided herein, no Member is entitled to the return of any part of its Capital Contributions or to be paid interest in respect of either its Capital Account or its Capital Contributions. An unrepaid Capital Contribution is not a liability of the Company or of any Member.

Section 6.02 Distributions on Dissolution and Winding Up. Upon the dissolution and winding up of the Company, after adjusting the Capital Accounts for all distributions made under Section 6.01 and all allocations under this Article VI, all available proceeds distributable to the Members as determined under Section 12.02 shall be distributed to all of the Members in amounts equal to the Members' positive Capital Account balances. 14

(c) Notwithstanding the allocation provisions of Section 6.03(a) and (b), if the allocation of Profits or Losses to a Member pursuant to Sections 6.03(a) and (b) in the current fiscal year would cause a Member to have a positive Capital Account balance that is greater than or less than the amount that has been distributed to such Member in the current fiscal year pursuant to Section 6.01, then the allocations of Profits and Losses in the current fiscal year shall be adjusted, to the greatest extent possible, to cause the positive Capital Account balances of each Member to equal the amount of distributions made to such Member in the current fiscal year. In addition, in the event of the dissolution of the Company pursuant to Section 12.01 hereof, if the allocation of Profits or Losses to a Member pursuant to Sections 6.03(a) and (b) would cause a Member to have a Capital Account balance in an amount that is greater than or less than the Member's Target Capital Account Amount, then the allocations of Profits and 15

Losses shall be adjusted, to the greatest extent possible, to cause the positive Capital Account balances of each Member to equal such an amount. (d) The following special allocations shall be made in the following order: (i) Qualified Income Offset. In the event any Member unexpectedly ----------------------- receives any adjustments, allocations or distributions described in Treasury Regulation Sections 1.704-1(b)(2)(ii)(d)(4), 1.704-1(b)(2)(ii)(d)(5) or 1.704-1(b)(2)(ii)(d)(6), items of Company income and gain shall be specially allocated to such Member in an amount and manner sufficient to restore, to the extent required by the Treasury Regulations, the Adjusted Capital Account Deficit of such Member as quickly as possible, provided that an allocation pursuant to this Section 6.03(d)(i) shall be made only if and to the extent that such Member would have an Adjusted Capital Account Deficit after all other allocations provided for in this Article VI have been tentatively made as if this Section 6.03(d)(i) was not in this Agreement. (ii) Gross Income Allocation. In the event any Member has a deficit ----------------------- Capital Account at the end of any Company fiscal year that is in excess of the sum of (x) the amount such Member is obligated to restore pursuant to any provision of this Agreement and (y) the amount such Member is deemed to be obligated to restore pursuant to the penultimate sentence of Treasury Regulation Sections 1.704-2(g)(1) and 1.704-2(i)(5), such Member shall be specially allocated items of Company income and gain in the amount of such excess as quickly as possible, provided that an allocation pursuant to this Section 6.03(d)(ii) shall be made only if and to the extent that such Member would have a deficit Capital Account balance in excess of such sum after all other allocations provided for in this Article VI have been made as if Section 6.03(d)(i) hereof and this Section 6.03(d)(ii) were not in this Agreement. (iii) Section 754 Adjustments. To the extent an adjustment of the ----------------------- adjusted tax basis of any Company asset pursuant to Section 734(b) of the Code or Section 743(b) of the Code is required, pursuant to Treasury Regulation Section 1.704-1(b)(2)(iv)(m), to be taken into account in determining Capital Accounts, the amount of such adjustment to the Capital Accounts shall be treated as an item of gain (if the adjustment increases the basis of the asset) or loss (if the adjustment decreases such basis) and such gain or loss shall be specially allocated to the Members in a manner consistent with the manner in which their Capital Accounts are required to be adjusted pursuant to such section of the Treasury Regulations. (e) In accordance with Section 704(c) of the Code and the Treasury Regulations thereunder, income, gain, loss and deduction with respect to any property contributed to the capital of the Company shall, solely for tax purposes, be allocated among the Members to take account of any variation between the adjusted basis of such property to the Company for federal income tax purposes and its initial Gross Asset Value (computed in accordance with the definition of same under this Agreement). In the event the Gross Asset Value of any Company asset is adjusted pursuant to subparagraph (ii) of the definition of Gross Asset Value hereof, subsequent allocations of income, gain, loss and deduction with respect to such asset shall take account of any variation between the adjusted basis of such asset for federal income tax purposes 16

and its Gross Asset Value in the same manner as under Section 704(c) of the Code and the Treasury Regulations thereunder. Any elections or other decisions relating to such allocations shall be made by the Tax Matters Partner in any manner that reasonably reflects the purpose and intention of this Agreement, provided that the Company shall use the remedial allocation method set forth in Treasury Regulation Section 1.704-3(d). Allocations pursuant to this Section 6.03(e) are solely for purposes of federal, state, local and foreign taxes and shall not affect, or in any way be taken into account in computing, any Member's Capital Account or share of Profits, Losses, other items or distributions pursuant to any provision of this Agreement. Section 6.04 Varying Interests. All items of income, gain, loss, deduction or credit shall be allocated, and all distributions shall be made, to the Persons shown on the records of the Company to have been Members as of the last calendar day of the period for which the allocation or distribution is to be made. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if during any taxable year there is a change in any Member's Sharing Ratio, the Members agree that their allocable shares of such items for the taxable year shall be determined on any method determined by the Board to be permissible under Code Section 706 and the related Treasury Regulations to take account of the Members' varying Sharing Ratios. Section 6.05 Tax Distributions. To the extent the Board, in good faith, determines the Company has sufficient funds, the Company shall make distributions on quarterly basis after the end of each fiscal quarter of the Company, beginning with the first quarter for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2002, to each Member in an amount equal to (i) the total amount of taxable income allocated to such Member for such fiscal year that exceeds the aggregate allocation of Losses pursuant to Sections 6.03(b) and (c) for the preceding fiscal years multiplied by (ii) a tax rate reasonably selected by the Board; provided, however, that subsequent distributions to the Members made during such fiscal year and subsequent fiscal years shall be adjusted as necessary to ensure that, over the entire term of the Company, the aggregate cash distributed to a Member shall be equal to the amount to which such Member would have been entitled had there been no distributions made pursuant to this Section 6.05. Section 6.06 Withheld Taxes. All amounts withheld pursuant to the Code or any provision of any state, local or foreign tax law with respect to any payment, distribution or allocation to the Company or the Members shall be treated as amounts distributed to the Members pursuant to this Article VI for all purposes of this Agreement. The Board is authorized to withhold from distributions, or with respect to allocations, to the Members and to pay over to any federal, state, local or foreign government any amounts required to be so withheld pursuant to the Code or any provision of any other federal, state, local or foreign law and shall allocate such amounts to those Members with respect to which such amounts were withheld. 17
