OperationsPipelines

Our refined product pipelines transport light refined products from HollyFrontier's Navajo refinery in New Mexico and Alon's Big Spring refinery in Texas to their customers in the metropolitan and rural areas of Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, Utah, Oklahoma, northern Mexico and Rocky Mountain refiners delivering product into southern Utah and Las Vegas, Nevada. The refined products transported in these pipelines include conventional gasolines, federal, state and local specification reformulated gasoline, low-octane gasoline for oxygenate blending, distillates that include high- and low-sulfur diesel and jet fuel and LPGs (such as propane, butane and isobutane).

Our intermediate product pipelines consist of three parallel pipelines that originate at the Navajo refinery Lovington facilities and terminate at its Artesia facilities. These pipelines transport intermediate feedstocks and crude oil for HollyFrontier's refining operations in New Mexico.

Our crude pipelines consist of crude oil trunk, gathering and connection pipelines located in west Texas, New Mexico and Oklahoma that deliver crude oil to the Navajo refinery and crude oil and refined product pipelines that support HollyFrontier's Woods Cross refinery.

Our pipelines are regularly inspected and well maintained. Generally, other than as provided in the pipelines and terminal agreements with HollyFrontier and Alon, substantially all of our pipelines are unrestricted as to the direction in which product flows and the types of refined products that we can transport on them. The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission ("FERC") regulates the transportation tariffs for interstate shipments on our refined product pipelines and state regulatory agencies regulate the transportation tariffs for intrastate shipments on our pipelines.

HollyFrontier shipped an aggregate of 63% of the petroleum products transported on our refined product pipelines and 100% of the petroleum products transported on our intermediate pipelines and crude oil pipelines in 2012. These pipelines transported 90% of the light refined products provided by HFC's Navajo refinery in 2012.

Our pipeline assets include:
  • approximately 810 miles of refined product pipelines, including 340 miles of leased pipelines, that transport gasoline, diesel and jet fuel principally from HollyFrontier's Navajo refinery in New Mexico to its customers in the metropolitan and rural areas of Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, Utah and northern Mexico;
  • approximately 510 miles of refined product pipelines that transport refined products from Alon's Big Spring refinery in Texas to its customers in Texas and Oklahoma;
  • three 65-mile intermediate pipelines that transport intermediate feedstocks and crude oil from HollyFrontier's Navajo refinery crude oil distillation and vacuum facilities in Lovington, New Mexico to its petroleum refinery facilities in Artesia, New Mexico;
  • approximately 960 miles of crude oil trunk, gathering and connection pipelines located in west Texas, New Mexico and Oklahoma that deliver crude oil to HollyFrontier's Navajo refinery;
  • approximately 10 miles of refined product pipelines that support HollyFrontier's Woods Cross refinery located near Salt Lake City, Utah;
  • gasoline and diesel connecting pipelines located at HollyFrontier's Tulsa east refinery facility;
  • five intermediate product and gas pipelines between HollyFrontier's Tulsa east and west refinery facilities;
  • crude receiving assets located at HollyFrontier's Cheyenne refinery;
  • a 75% interest in the UNEV Pipeline, a 400-mile refined products pipeline running from Woods Cross, Utah to Las Vegas, Nevada; and
  • a 25% joint venture interest in the SLC pipeline, a 95-mile intrastate crude oil pipeline system that transports crude oil into the Salt Lake City, Utah area from the Utah terminus of the Frontier Pipeline, as well as crude oil flowing from Wyoming and Utah via Plains All American Pipeline, L. P.'s ("Plains") Rocky Mountain Pipeline.
