The terminals are key distribution facilities for major refined products consuming markets and have approximately 9.5 million barrels of storage and associated infrastructure in the United States.

The fifteenth terminal will be owned and operated solely by KMI. In connection with the transaction, BP has entered into commercial agreements securing long-term storage and throughput capacity from the JV, which will market additional capacity to third-party customers. Kinder Morgan owns a 75 percent interest in the JV, with BP owning the balance. This investment is included in Kinder Morgan’s 2016 capital plan as discussed in its Jan. 27 investor conference.

The terminals are located in the Midwest, Northeast, Southeast and on the West Coast at: Rochelle, O’Hare (100 percent Kinder Morgan), Chicago and Wood River in Illinois; Dayton and Cincinnati, Ohio; Brooklyn, New York; Carteret, New Jersey; Curtis Bay, Maryland; Port Everglades, Florida; Atlanta and Doraville, Georgia; Indianapolis, Indiana; Spring Valley, Minnesota; and Richmond, California.

The transaction includes approximately 160 former BP employees.
