Refined Products Pipeline System

The Sunoco Logistics Refined Products Pipeline System consists of approximately 2,400 miles of products pipelines in several regions of the United States. The pipelines primarily transport refined products and NGLs in the northeast, midwest, and southwest United States to markets in these areas, as well as Ontario, Canada. These operations include our controlling financial interest in Inland, which owns approximately 350 miles of products pipeline.
The products transported in these pipelines include multiple grades of gasoline, middle distillates (such as heating oil, diesel and jet fuel), and liquefied petroleum gases (such as propane and butane). In addition, certain of our pipelines in this segment transport NGLs from processing and fractionation areas to end-user markets.  For more information on all of our assets and on their locations, visit our Asset Map.
Included in our Refined Products Pipeline system is an 83.8% 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. The Allegheny Access project, a products pipeline system created from both newly constructed and existing pipeline assets, commenced operations at the end of Q1 2015. The pipeline will transport refined products from the Midwest to Eastern Ohio and Western Pennsylvania markets. The pipeline is able to transport up to 85,000 bpd, with the possibility to increase capacity to meet further demands.
