SAN ANTONIO - March 15, 2018 - The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission ("FERC"), today announced that it would be revising its policy regarding income tax allowances in the rates of pipelines operated by MLPs.
Andeavor Logistics (NYSE: ANDX) operates some FERC regulated pipelines, but anticipates that the ruling may only have a possible annual negative impact to Andeavor Logistics' net earnings and EBITDA of less than $10 million, which reflects the entire potential impact of changes in the FERC corporate tax allowance.
In addition, the FERC ruling also addressed the rate structure of certain pipelines operated by SFPP, L.P. Andeavor (NYSE: ANDV) is a party to these cases involving SFPP, L.P. and anticipates receiving refunds that will have a positive impact upon future cash flows, which we are in the process of estimating.
Andeavor is a premier, highly integrated marketing, logistics and refining company. Andeavor's retail-marketing system includes more than 3,200 stores marketed under multiple well-known fuel brands, including ARCO®, SUPERAMERICA®, Shell®, Exxon(TM), Mobil(TM), Tesoro, USA Gasoline(TM) and Giant®.
