Brief -- Sunoco Logistics

Sunoco Logistics Partners LP has struck a $760 million deal to acquire Vitol Group's Permian Basin crude oil system in West Texas that is set to close by the end of the year. The transaction includes a 2 million bbl crude oil terminal in Midland and an oil gathering and mainline pipeline system in the Midland sub-basin, which includes an acreage dedication from a Permian producer. Also included are Vitol's oil purchasing and marketing business in West Texas. The acquisition also would provide Sunoco Logistics 100% of SunVit Pipeline LLC, a 50-50 joint venture with Vitol that connects the Midland terminal to the partnership’s Permian Express 2 pipeline. In connection with the acquisition, Energy Transfer Partners LP and Energy Transfer Equity LP, owners of the partnership's general partner Sunoco Partners LLC, agreed to reduce incentive distributions by $60 million over a two-year period. The financial assistance "provides us with expected accretive economics for this strategic acquisition," Sunoco Logistics CEO Michael J. Hennigan said.
