Plains All American Announces Expansion and Joint Venture of Red River Pipeline with Delek Logistics

HOUSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Plains All American Pipeline (NYSE: PAA)
today announced a capital-efficient expansion and new joint venture of
its existing Red River Pipeline system. Delek Logistics Partners, LP
(NYSE: DKL) has purchased from a Plains’ subsidiary a 33% ownership
interest in a new Red River Pipeline Company LLC joint venture for $128
million. Plains retained a 67% interest in the joint venture and will
continue to operate the Red River system. In support of this expansion,
Delek US (NYSE: DK) increased its long-term throughput and deficiency
(“T&D”) agreement on the Red River system from an existing 35,000
barrels per day to 100,000 barrels per day. The expansion enables
additional volume pull-through from Cushing and the Permian to the U.S.
Gulf Coast markets, providing additional supply optionality for shippers.

“This is a win-win deal that fits our strategy of optimizing and
expanding existing systems while exercising capital discipline,” stated
Jeremy Goebel, Executive Vice President – Commercial, Plains All
American. “This transaction expands long-term alignment with a natural
shipper, supports and funds the expansion of the system, increases
Plains’ net committed annual cash flow, and provides proceeds to fund
our capital program or lower debt.”

The Red River pipeline system extends from Cushing, Oklahoma to
Longview, Texas. The expansion will increase the total system capacity
from approximately 150,000 barrels per day to approximately 235,000
barrels per day through the addition of pumping capacity and is expected
to be completed during the first half of 2020. Approximately 30% of the
expanded Red River system capacity from Cushing to Hewitt, Oklahoma is
owned by a third party in an undivided joint interest structure.
