Arc Logistics Partners LP Announces Entrance Into West Coast Terminalling Market
NEW YORK, NY, January 22, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Arc Logistics Partners LP (“Arc Logistics” or the “Partnership”), through its wholly-owned subsidiary Arc Terminals Holdings LLC (“Arc Terminals”), has extended its operational footprint and customer relationships into the West Coast market by executing a fifteen-year lease on a petroleum products terminal in Portland, Oregon (the “Portland Terminal”) concurrent with the CorEnergy Infrastructure Trust, Inc. (“CorEnergy”) acquisition of the Portland Terminal from an unaffiliated third-party. The Partnership also has an option to purchase the Portland Terminal. Vince Cubbage, CEO of Arc Logistics, commented, “The Portland Terminal is an important addition to our asset base supported by a long term contract with a major oil company. Based on minimum contracted throughput volumes, we expect the transaction to be accretive to 2014 distributable cash flow. Importantly, we expect the Portland Terminal to provide the opportunity for significant incremental growth as additional customers or terminal capabilities are developed.”
Arc Logistics will have 100% operational and commercial control of the Portland Terminal, a rail/marine facility adjacent to the Willamette River in Portland, Oregon. The 39-acre site has 84 tanks with a total storage capacity of 1,466,000 barrels and is capable of receiving, storing and delivering heavy and refined petroleum products. Products are received and/or delivered via railroad, marine (up to Panamax size vessels) and a truck loading rack. The marine facilities are accessed through a neighboring terminal facility via a pipeline. The Portland Terminal offers heating systems, emulsions and an on-site product testing laboratory as ancillary services.
The Portland Terminal increases Arc Logistics’ operated storage capacity to approximately 6.5 million barrels and expands the Partnership’s geographic presence. This transaction illustrates the Partnership’s commitment to execute its business strategy by expanding its market position and supporting the expansion plans of its existing customers, while generating stable cash flows for its unit holders. “The opportunity surrounding the Portland Terminal is an example of the Partnership’s commitment to support its customers’ commercial activity and growth initiatives by expanding its operational platform for their benefit,” added John Blanchard, President of Arc Terminals.
