Item 8.01 Other Events.
In September 2018, Magellan Midstream Partners, L.P. (the “Partnership”) announced plans to jointly develop a new crude oil pipeline with Energy Transfer LP, MPLX LP and Delek US Holdings, Inc. to deliver crude oil from the Permian Basin to the Partnership’s terminal in the Houston area and Energy Transfer’s terminal in Nederland, Texas. Due to recent developments, it is unlikely that the Permian Gulf Coast or PGC pipeline project as initially announced will proceed, and, therefore, the Partnership is decreasing its expansion capital spending projections by approximately $200 million for 2019 and $250 million for 2020 to reflect its previously expected share of the project. As a result, the Partnership’s spending estimates are now approximately $1.1 billion for 2019 and $150 million for 2020 to complete its expansion capital projects currently underway. The Partnership continues to actively develop a crude oil pipeline project in the Permian Basin, but the probability of success is unknown at this time.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
