The Partnership previously had outstanding 8.9 million Class E Units, 90.7 million Class G Units and 101.5 million Class K Units, all of which were held by wholly-owned subsidiaries of the Partnership and were therefore eliminated in the Partnership’s consolidated financial statements. In connection with the Sunoco Logistics Merger, all of the Partnership’s outstanding Class E, Class G and Class K units were cancelled and converted into an equal number of newly created Class E, Class G and Class K units representing limited partner interests in ETP, with the same rights, preferences, privileges, duties and obligations as such classes had immediately prior to the Sunoco Logistics Merger, as described below. Consequently, the ETP Class E, Class G and Class K units are reflected as an equity method investment in ETP by the Partnership subsequent to the Sunoco Logistics Merger. The Partnership’s equity in earnings and cash distributions related to the Class E, Class G and Class K units is as follows: (i) the Class E Units are entitled to aggregate earnings allocation and cash distributions equal to 11.1% of the total amount of cash distributed to all Unitholders, including the Class E Unitholders, up to $1.41 per unit per year, (ii) the Class G Units are entitled to earnings allocation equal to ETPs income or loss excluding any income or loss generated by ETP Holdco or its consolidated subsidiaries and aggregate cash distributions equal to 26% of the total amount of cash generated by ETP and its subsidiaries, other than ETP Holdco, and available for distribution, up to a maximum of $3.75 per Class G Unit per year, and (iii) the Class K Units are entitled to aggregate earnings allocation and cash distribution of $0.67275 per Class K Unit prior to ETP making distributions of available cash to any class of units, excluding any cash available distributions or dividends or capital stock sales proceeds received by ETP from ETP Holdco. The investment in ETP has been recorded in the Partnership’s balance sheet at the historical carrying value as of the date of the Sunoco Logistics Merger.

The Partnership has other equity method investments which were not, individually or in the aggregate, significant to our consolidated financial statements.
Based on the estimated borrowing rates currently available to us and our subsidiaries for loans with similar terms and average maturities, the aggregate fair value and carrying amount of our consolidated debt obligations as of June 30, 2017 was $27.55 billion and $26.37 billion, respectively. As of December 31, 2016, the aggregate fair value and carrying amount of our consolidated debt obligations was $33.85 billion and $32.93 billion, respectively. The fair value of our consolidated debt obligations is a Level 2 valuation based on the observable inputs used for similar liabilities.
We have commodity derivatives and interest rate derivatives that are accounted for as assets and liabilities at fair value in our consolidated balance sheets. We determine the fair value of our assets and liabilities subject to fair value measurement by using the highest possible “level” of inputs. Level 1 inputs are observable quotes in an active market for identical assets and liabilities. We consider the valuation of marketable securities and commodity derivatives transacted through a clearing broker with a published price from the appropriate exchange as a Level 1 valuation. Level 2 inputs are inputs observable for similar assets and liabilities. We consider OTC commodity derivatives entered into directly with third parties as a Level 2 valuation since the values of these derivatives are quoted on an exchange for similar transactions. Additionally, we consider our options transacted through our clearing broker as having Level 2 inputs due to the level of activity of these contracts on the exchange in which they trade. We consider the valuation of our interest rate derivatives as Level 2 as the primary input, the LIBOR curve, is based on quotes from an active exchange of Eurodollar futures for the same period as the future interest swap settlements. Level 3 inputs are unobservable. During the six months ended June 30, 2017, no transfers were made between any levels within the fair value hierarchy.
