       File No. 333-215183

Ladies and Gentlemen:

Pursuant to Rule 461 of Regulation C of the General Rules and Regulations under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, the undersigned, on behalf of Sunoco Logistics Partners L.P. (the “Partnership”), respectfully requests that the effective date of the Registration Statement on Form S-4 referred to above be accelerated so that it will become effective at 1:00 p.m., New York time, on March 24, 2017, or as soon as practicable thereafter.

The Partnership hereby acknowledges that:


    should the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”) or the staff, acting pursuant to delegated authority, declare the filing effective, it does not foreclose the Commission from taking any action with respect to the filing;


    the action of the Commission or the staff, acting pursuant to delegated authority, in declaring the filing effective, does not relieve the Partnership from its full responsibility for the adequacy and accuracy of the disclosure in the filing; and


    the Partnership may not assert staff comments and the declaration of effectiveness as a defense in any proceeding initiated by the Commission or any person under the federal securities laws of the United States.


Very truly yours,


By:   Sunoco Partners LLC, its general partner
