Crude Oil Pipelines
NuStar Energy L.P.’s crude oil pipelines deliver crude oil and other feedstocks such as gas oil from various points in Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas and Colorado to Valero Energy’s McKee, Three Rivers and Ardmore refineries, providing the refineries with access to domestic and foreign crude oil sources. In 2004, we transported an average of approximately 381,000 barrels per day (BPD) through our crude oil pipelines.
Refined Product Pipelines
NuStar Energy L.P.’s refined product pipelines transport refined products from Valero Energy’s Corpus Christi, McKee, Three Rivers and Ardmore refineries to our terminals or to interconnections with third-party pipelines, for distribution to markets in Texas, Oklahoma, Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona and other mid-continent states. The refined products transported in these pipelines include gasoline, distillates (such as diesel and jet fuel), natural gas liquids (such as propane and butane), blendstocks and petrochemicals such as toluene, xylene and raffinate. In 2004, an average of nearly 443,000 BPD of refined products moved through our refined product pipelines.
