Refined Products Pipeline System

The Sunoco Logistics Refined Products Pipeline System consists of approximately 2,500 miles of refined products pipelines in the northeast, midwest and gulf coast regions of the United States.   For more information on all of our assets and on their locations, visit our Asset Map.
The refined products pipelines transport refined products from refineries in the northeast, midwest and southwest United States to markets in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan, Texas and Canada. The refined products transported in these pipelines include multiple grades of gasoline, middle distillates (such as heating oil, diesel and jet fuel) and LPGs (such as propane and butane).
Included in our Refined Products Pipeline system is an 84% interest in Inland Corporation, a pipeline system we operate that connects three refineries in Ohio to terminals and major markets in Ohio. We also operate, and own a two thirds interest in the Harbor Pipeline, which transports products from the Philadelphia area to the Linden/Newark, New Jersey area. In addition, we own equity interests in the following joint ventures:
  Ownership Interest
  • Explorer Pipeline Company, a pipeline system running from the Gulf Coast to the Chicago area
  • Yellowstone Pipe Line Company, a pipeline running from Billings, Montana to Spokane, Washington
  • West Shore Pipe Line Company, a pipeline system running from the Chicago area to Madison and Green Bay, Wisconsin
  • Wolverine Pipe Line Company, a pipeline system running from the Chicago area to Detroit and northern Michigan


Nearly all of our refined products pipelines are common carrier lines, and the tariff rates on all of our pipelines (wholly owned and joint venture) are regulated by either the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (for interstate movements) or individual state agencies (for intrastate movements).

Allegheny Access Project 

In 2012, we completed a successful Open Season for our project to transport refined products from the midwest to eastern Ohio and western Pennsylvania markets. This project will utilize new and existing assets and is expected to transport 85,000 barrels per day, with the possibility for expansion to meet further demand.  The pipeline is expected to be operational in the 4th quarter 2014.
