                   Sunoco Logistics Partners Operations L.P.

   We are a Delaware limited partnership recently formed by Sunoco Logistics
Partners L.P. to acquire, own, and operate a geographically diverse and
complementary group of refined product and crude oil pipelines and terminal
facilities. We have an experienced management team dedicated to a growth
strategy, and we intend to acquire additional assets in the future. Our
business comprises three segments:

   . Eastern Pipeline System.  Our Eastern Pipeline System primarily serves
     Sunoco R&M's refining and marketing operations in the Northeast and
     Midwest United States and includes 1,895 miles of refined product
     pipelines, including a one-third interest in an 80-mile refined product
     pipeline and 58 miles of interrefinery pipelines between two of Sunoco
     R&M's refineries; a 123-mile wholly owned crude oil pipeline; and a 9.4%
     interest in Explorer Pipeline Company, a joint venture that owns a
     1,413-mile refined product pipeline.

   . Terminal Facilities.  Our Terminal Facilities consist of 32 inland refined
     product terminals with an aggregate capacity of 4.8 million barrels, which
     primarily serve our Eastern Pipeline System; a 2.0 million barrel refined
     product terminal serving Sunoco R&M's Marcus Hook refinery near
     Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; an 11.2 million barrel marine crude oil
     terminal on the Texas Gulf Coast, our Nederland Terminal; one inland and
     two marine crude oil terminals, with a combined capacity of 3.0 million
     barrels, and related pipelines, all of which serve Sunoco R&M's
     Philadelphia refinery; and a 1.0 million barrel liquefied petroleum gas,
     or LPG, terminal near Detroit, Michigan.

   . Western Pipeline System.  Our Western Pipeline System gathers, purchases,
     sells, and transports crude oil principally in Oklahoma and Texas and
     consists of 1,883 miles of crude oil trunk pipelines and 870 miles of
     crude oil gathering lines that supply the trunk pipelines; 143 crude oil
     transport trucks; and 124 crude oil truck unloading facilities.

   We transport, terminal, and store refined products and crude oil in 11
states. We generate revenues by charging tariffs for transporting refined
products and crude oil through our pipelines and by charging fees for
terminalling and storing refined products, crude oil, and other hydrocarbons
in, and for providing services at, our terminals. We also generate revenues by
purchasing domestic crude oil and selling it to Sunoco R&M and other customers.
Generally, as we purchase crude oil, we simultaneously enter into corresponding
sale transactions involving physical deliveries of crude oil, which enables us
to secure a profit on the transaction at the time of purchase and to establish
a substantially balanced position.

                                      1


<PAGE>

   For the year ended December 31, 2001, on a pro forma basis, we had revenues
of $1,629.2 million, EBITDA of $90.1 million, and net income of $46.5 million.

Our Relationship with Sunoco, Inc.

   We have a strong and mutually beneficial relationship with Sunoco, Inc., one
of the leading independent United States refining and marketing companies and
the largest refiner in the Northeast United States. Sunoco, Inc. operates its
businesses through a number of operating subsidiaries, the primary one being
Sunoco R&M, which operates Sunoco, Inc.'s four refineries and markets gasoline
and convenience items through approximately 4,150 retail sites. Substantially
all of our business activities with Sunoco, Inc. are conducted through Sunoco
R&M. The majority of our operations are strategically located within Sunoco
R&M's refining and marketing supply chain. Sunoco R&M relies on us to provide
transportation and terminalling services that support its refining and
marketing operations.

   The following table sets forth the crude oil refining capacity in barrels
per day, or bpd, of each of Sunoco R&M's refineries and, for 2001, the
percentages of crude oil and feedstocks and refined products that we
transported or terminalled for Sunoco R&M:

/(1)/The only refined product that we transport from the Tulsa refinery is lube
     extracted feedstock. Excluding that refinery, we transported or
     terminalled 77% of the total refined products from Sunoco R&M's refineries.
/(2)/Excluding the Marcus Hook refinery, we transported 87% of the total crude
     oil and feedstocks to Sunoco R&M's refineries.

   The success of our operations substantially depends upon the continued use
of our pipelines and terminal facilities by Sunoco R&M. For the year ended
December 31, 2001, Sunoco R&M accounted for approximately 73% of the pro forma
revenues of our Eastern Pipeline System, 65% of the pro forma revenues of our
Terminal Facilities, and 66% of the pro forma revenues of our Western Pipeline
System. The corresponding historical percentages for the year ended December
31, 2001 were 73%, 59%, and 66%, respectively. For additional information
concerning our revenues attributable to Sunoco R&M, please read "Management's
Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of
Operations--Results of Operations."

   With the exception of our Nederland Terminal, Sunoco R&M accounts for
substantially all of the throughput volumes at our Terminal Facilities. In
addition, Sunoco R&M and its affiliates are the only shippers on approximately
850 miles of our Eastern Pipeline System, and Sunoco R&M is the only shipper on
approximately 45 miles of our Western Pipeline System. We expect to continue to
derive a substantial portion of our revenues from Sunoco R&M for the
foreseeable future. On February 8, 2002, the closing date of the master
partnership's initial public offering, we entered into an agreement with Sunoco
R&M under which Sunoco R&M agreed to use our pipelines and terminals for
periods generally ranging from five to seven years. A more detailed description
of this agreement begins on page 4.

                                      2


<PAGE>

   Sunoco, Inc. retained a significant interest in our partnership through its
indirect ownership of a 73.2% limited partner interest and a 2% general partner
interest in the master partnership. In addition, to carry out our operations,
the master partnership's general partner and its affiliates, which are
indirectly owned by Sunoco, Inc., currently employ approximately 1,160 people
who provide direct support to our operations. We do not have any employees.
Please read "Business--Employees."

   Sunoco, Inc.'s common stock trades on the New York Stock Exchange under the
symbol "SUN." The master partnership's common units trade on the New York Stock
Exchange under the symbol "SXL." Sunoco, Inc. and the master partnership are
subject to the information requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.
Please read "Where You Can Find More Information."

Business Strategies

   Our primary business strategies are to:

   . generate stable cash flows;

   . increase our pipeline and terminal throughput;

   . pursue strategic and accretive acquisitions that complement our existing
     asset base; and

   . continue to improve our operating efficiency and to reduce our costs.

Competitive Strengths

   We believe we are well-positioned to execute our business strategies
successfully using the following competitive strengths:

   . We have a unique strategic relationship with Sunoco R&M's refining and
     marketing operations.  Our refined product and crude oil pipelines and
     terminals are directly linked to Sunoco R&M's refineries and afford Sunoco
     R&M with the most cost-effective means to access crude oil and distribute
     refined products. Sunoco R&M has agreed to continue using our assets to
     transport, terminal, and store refined products and crude oil. Please read
     "Business--Our Relationship with Sunoco, Inc."

   . Our refined product pipelines and our terminals are strategically located
     in areas with high demand.  We have a strong presence in the Northeast and
     Midwest United States, and our transportation and distribution assets in
     these regions operate at high utilization rates, providing us a base of
     stable cash flows.

   . We have a complementary portfolio of assets that are both geographically
     and operationally diverse.  Our assets include refined product pipelines
     and terminals in the Northeast and Midwest United States and a crude oil
     terminal and pipelines in Texas, Oklahoma, and the Gulf Coast area. This
     diversity contributes to our stable cash flows.

   . Our pipelines and terminals are efficient and well-maintained.  We have
     recently made significant investments to upgrade our asset base. Our
     refined product pipelines and many of our crude oil pipelines and our
     terminals are automated to provide continuous, real-time operational data.
     We use a state-of-the-art internal inspection program and other procedures
     to monitor the integrity of our pipelines.

   . Our executive officers and directors have extensive experience and include
     some of the most senior officers of Sunoco, Inc.  Our management team has
     operated our assets for almost ten years. As a result, we believe we have
     the expertise to execute our business strategies. The master partnership's
     general partner has adopted compensation and incentive plans to closely
     align the interests of our executive officers with the interests of our
     other stakeholders.

Our Pipelines and Terminals Storage and Throughput Agreement with Sunoco R&M

   Under the pipelines and terminals storage and throughput agreement with
Sunoco R&M, Sunoco R&M has agreed to pay us fees generally comparable to those
charged by third parties to:

   . transport on our refined product pipelines or throughput in our 32 inland
     refined product terminals an amount of refined products that will produce
     at least $75.0 million of revenue in the first year, escalating at 1.67%
     per year for the next four years. In addition, Sunoco R&M will pay us to
     transport on our refined product pipelines an amount of refined products
     that will produce at least $54.3 million of revenue in the sixth year and
     at least $55.2 million of revenue in the seventh year. Sunoco R&M will pay
     the published tariffs on the pipelines and contractually agreed upon fees
     at the terminals. On a pro forma basis, we would have received $84.3
     million in revenue from Sunoco R&M for the use of these pipelines and
     terminals during the year ended December 31, 2001;

   . receive and deliver at least 130,000 bpd of refined products per year at
     our Marcus Hook Tank Farm for five years. In the first year, we will
     receive a fee of $0.1627 per barrel for the first 130,000 bpd and $0.0813
     per barrel for volumes in excess of 130,000 bpd. These fees will escalate
     at the rate of 1.67% per year. During the year ended December 31, 2001,
     Sunoco R&M's throughput at the Marcus Hook Tank Farm averaged 138,490 bpd;

   . store 975,734 barrels of LPG per year at our Inkster Terminal, which
     represents all of our LPG storage capacity at this facility. In the first
     year of this seven-year agreement, we will receive a fee of $2.04 per
     barrel of committed storage, a fee of $0.204 per barrel for receipts
     greater than 975,734 barrels per year and a fee of $0.204 per barrel for
     deliveries greater than 975,734 barrels per year. These fees will escalate
     at the rate of 1.875% per year. For the past five years, Sunoco R&M has
     used the full capacity of our Inkster Terminal;

   . receive and deliver at least 290,000 bpd of crude oil or refined products
     per year at our Fort Mifflin Terminal Complex for seven years. In the
     first year, we will receive a fee of $0.1627 per barrel for the first
     180,000 bpd and $0.0813 per barrel for volumes in excess of 180,000 bpd.
     These fees will escalate at the rate of 1.67% per year. Sunoco R&M's
     throughput at the Fort Mifflin Terminal Complex averaged 318,545 bpd
     during the year ended December 31, 2001; and

   . transport or cause to be transported an aggregate of at least 140,000 bpd
     of crude oil per year on our Marysville to Toledo, Nederland to Longview,
     Cushing to Tulsa, Barnsdall to Tulsa, and Bad Creek to Tulsa crude oil
     pipelines at the published tariffs for a term of seven years. During the
     year ended December 31, 2001, we and Sunoco R&M transported 166,537 bpd on
     these pipelines.

   If Sunoco R&M fails to meet its minimum obligations pursuant to the contract
terms set forth above, it will be required to pay us in cash the amount of any
shortfall, which may be applied as a credit in the following year after Sunoco
R&M's minimum obligations are met.

   Sunoco R&M's minimum revenue or throughput obligations may be permanently
reduced or suspended if Sunoco R&M (1) shuts down or reconfigures one of its
refineries (other than planned maintenance turnarounds), or is prohibited from
using MTBE in the gasoline it produces, and (2) reasonably believes in good
faith that such event will jeopardize its ability to satisfy these obligations.
Sunoco, Inc. has advised us that it is not currently proceeding with any
transaction or plan that it believes is likely to result in any
reconfigurations or other operational changes in any of its refineries served
by our assets that would have a material effect on Sunoco R&M's business
relationship with us. Further, Sunoco, Inc. has also advised us that it is not
considering a shutdown of any of its refineries served by our assets. Sunoco,
Inc. is, however, actively managing its assets and operations, and, therefore,
changes of some nature, possibly material to its business relationship with us,
are likely to occur at some point in the future.

   To the extent Sunoco R&M does not extend or renew the pipelines and
terminals storage and throughput agreement, our financial condition and results
of operations may be adversely affected. Our assets were constructed or
purchased to service Sunoco R&M's refining and marketing supply chain and are
well-situated to suit Sunoco R&M's needs. As a result, we would expect that
even if this agreement is not renewed, Sunoco R&M would continue to use our
pipelines and terminals. However, we cannot assure you that Sunoco R&M will
continue to use our facilities or that we will be able to generate additional
revenues from third parties. Please read "Risk Factors--Risks Inherent in Our
Business."

Other Agreements with Sunoco R&M and Sunoco, Inc.

   Under a 20-year lease agreement, Sunoco R&M has agreed to pay us $5.1
million in the first year to lease the 58 miles of interrefinery pipelines
between Sunoco R&M's Philadelphia and Marcus Hook refineries, escalating at
1.67% per year for the next 19 years. On a pro forma basis, Sunoco R&M would
have paid us $5.0 million for the use of these pipelines during the year ended
December 31, 2001.

   Sunoco R&M has agreed to purchase from us at market-based rates particular
grades of crude oil that our crude oil acquisition and marketing business
purchases for delivery to pipelines in: Longview, Trent, Tye, and Colorado
City, Texas; Haynesville, Louisiana; Marysville and Lewistown, Michigan; and
Tulsa, Oklahoma. At Marysville and Lewiston, Michigan, we exchange Michigan
sweet and Michigan sour crude oil we own for domestic sweet crude oil supplied
by Sunoco R&M at market-based rates. The initial term of these agreements is
two months. These agreements automatically renew on a monthly basis unless
terminated by either party on 30 days' written notice. Sunoco R&M has indicated
that it has no current intention to terminate these agreements. During the year
ended December 31, 2001, Sunoco R&M purchased 70,461 bpd of crude oil from us
in these areas.

   On February 8, 2002, the master partnership entered into an omnibus
agreement with Sunoco, Inc. and its affiliates under which they generally
agreed not to engage in the business of purchasing crude oil at the wellhead,
or operating crude oil pipelines or terminals, refined product pipelines or
terminals, or LPG terminals in the continental United States. In addition, this
agreement addresses our payment of a fee to Sunoco, Inc. or our master
partnership's general partner for the provision of various general and
administrative services, Sunoco R&M's reimbursement to us for certain
maintenance expenditures, Sunoco, Inc.'s indemnification of us for certain
environmental and other liabilities, and other matters.

Consequences of Failure to

                              under the Securities Act of 1933 except in
                              limited circumstances provided under the
                              registration rights agreement. In addition, you
                              will not be able to resell, offer to resell or
                              otherwise transfer the outstanding notes unless
                              we have registered the outstanding notes under
                              the Securities Act of 1933, or unless you resell,
                              offer to resell or otherwise transfer them under
                              an exemption from the registration requirements

U.S. Federal Income
  Tax Considerations........  The exchange of new notes for outstanding notes
                              in the exchange offer should not be a taxable
                              event for U.S. federal income tax purposes.
                              Please read "Certain United States Federal Income

                            TERMS OF THE NEW NOTES

   The new notes will be identical to the outstanding notes except that the new
notes are registered under the Securities Act of 1933 and will not have
restrictions on transfer, registration rights or provisions for additional
interest. The new notes will evidence the same debt as the outstanding notes,
and the same indenture will govern the new notes and the outstanding notes.

   The following summary contains basic information about the new notes and is
not intended to be complete. It does not contain all information that is
important to you. For a more complete description of the new notes, please read
"Description of the New Notes."

Securities..................  $250 million aggregate principal amount of 7.25%
                              Senior Notes due 2012.

Issuer......................  Sunoco Logistics Partners Operations L.P.

Maturity Date...............  February 15, 2012.

Interest Payment Dates......  February 15 and August 15, commencing August 15,
                              2002.

Optional Redemption.........  At any time, we may redeem all or part of the new
                              notes at a redemption price equal to 100% of
                              their principal amount, plus accrued and unpaid
                              interest and the applicable make-whole premium.
                              Please read "Description of the New
                              Notes--Optional Redemption."

Ranking.....................  The new notes will be our senior unsecured
                              obligations, ranking equally with our existing
                              and future senior unsecured indebtedness,
                              including indebtedness under our revolving credit
                              facility. However, the new notes will be
                              effectively subordinated to all of our secured
                              indebtedness to the extent of the value of the
                              security for that indebtedness. At March 31,
                              2002, we had approximately $5 million of secured
                              indebtedness. Furthermore, while all our existing
                              subsidiaries will guarantee the new notes, the
                              new notes will be effectively subordinated to
                              indebtedness of any subsidiaries that will not
                              guarantee the new notes in the future.

Guarantees..................  The new notes will be our senior unsecured
                              obligations. The new notes will be guaranteed
                              unconditionally by our subsidiaries and our
                              parent on a senior unsecured basis so long as
                              they guarantee any of our other long-term
                              indebtedness. Their guarantees of the new notes
                              will rank equally with their guarantees of
                              indebtedness under our revolving credit facility.
                              If we cannot make payments on the new notes when
                              they are due, the guarantors must make them
                              instead.

Covenants...................  The indenture will limit our ability and the
                              ability of our subsidiaries to:

                              . create or incur liens;

                              . engage in sale and leaseback transactions; or

                              . merge or consolidate with or transfer
                                substantially all our assets to another entity.

                              These covenants are subject to exceptions. For
                              more details, please read "Description of the New
                              Notes--Important Covenants."

Change of Control...........  Upon the occurrence of a change of control to a
                              non-investment grade entity, we must offer to
                              purchase the new notes at a price equal to 100%
                              of their principal amount plus accrued and unpaid
                              interest, if any, to the date of purchase.

Transfer Restrictions;
  Absence of a Public Market
  for the New Notes.........  The new notes generally will be freely
                              transferable but will also be new securities for
                              which there is currently no market. We cannot
                              assure you as to the development or liquidity of
                              any market for the new notes.

                              We do not intend to apply for listing of the new
                              notes on any securities exchange or for the
                              quotation of the new notes in any automated
                              dealer quotation system.

Risk Factors................  Please read "Risk Factors" and other information
                              in this prospectus for a discussion of the
                              factors you should carefully consider before
                              deciding to participate in the exchange offer.

         SUMMARY HISTORICAL AND PRO FORMA FINANCIAL AND OPERATING DATA

   On February 8, 2002, our parent, Sunoco Logistics Partners L.P., completed
its initial public offering and related transactions whereby we became the
successor to a substantial portion of the wholly owned logistics operations of
Sunoco, Inc. and its subsidiaries. The following table shows summary historical
financial and operating data of Sunoco Logistics Partners L.P., in each case
for the periods and as of the dates indicated. The selected historical
financial data for Sunoco Logistics Partners L.P. for 1999, 2000 and 2001 are
derived from the audited combined financial statements of Sunoco Logistics
Partners L.P., which reflect the historical cost-basis amounts of Sunoco
Logistics (Predecessor), our predecessor.

   The pro forma financial statements of Sunoco Logistics Partners L.P. give
pro forma effect to:

   . the contribution of certain assets and liabilities of Sunoco Logistics
     (Predecessor) to Sunoco Logistics Partners L.P.;

   . the issuance by us of the notes;

   . the establishment of the revolving credit facility;

   . the completion of the initial public offering by our parent of 5,750,000
     of its common units representing limited partner interests; and

   . the execution of the pipelines and terminals storage and throughput
     agreement with Sunoco R&M and the omnibus agreement with Sunoco R&M and
     Sunoco, Inc.

   The summary pro forma financial data presented below as of and for the year
ended December 31, 2001 are derived from the master partnership's unaudited pro
forma financial statements. The pro forma balance sheet assumes the initial
public offering, the notes offering and related transactions occurred as of
December 31, 2001, and the pro forma statement of income assumes the initial
public offering, the notes offering and related transactions occurred on
January 1, 2001. A more complete explanation of the pro forma data can be found
in the master partnership's Unaudited Pro Forma Financial Statements.

   We define EBITDA as operating income plus depreciation and amortization.
EBITDA provides additional information for evaluating our ability to service
our debt obligations and is presented solely as a supplemental measure. You
should not consider EBITDA as an alternative to net income, income before
income taxes, cash flows from operations, or any other measure of financial
performance presented in accordance with accounting principles generally
accepted in the United States. Our EBITDA may not be comparable to EBITDA or
similarly titled measures of other entities as other entities may not calculate
EBITDA in the same manner as we do.

   For the periods presented, Sunoco R&M was the primary or exclusive user of
our refined product terminals, our Fort Mifflin Terminal Complex, and our
Marcus Hook Tank Farm. Historically, most of the terminalling and throughput
services provided by Sunoco Logistics (Predecessor) for Sunoco R&M's refining
and marketing operations were at fees that enabled us to recover our costs, but
not to generate any operating income. Accordingly, historical EBITDA for those
assets was equal to their depreciation and amortization.

   Maintenance capital expenditures are capital expenditures made to replace
partially or fully depreciated assets in order to maintain the existing
operating capacity of our assets and to extend their useful lives. Expansion
capital expenditures are capital expenditures made to expand the existing
operating capacity of our assets, whether through construction or acquisition.
We treat repair and maintenance expenditures that do not extend the useful life
of existing assets as operating expenses as we incur them. The maintenance
capital expenditures for the periods presented include several one-time
projects to upgrade our technology, increase reliability, and lower our cost
structure.

   Throughput is the total number of barrels per day transported on a pipeline
system or through a terminal and includes barrels ultimately transported to a
delivery point on another pipeline system.

/(1)/On October 1, 1999, Sunoco Logistics (Predecessor) acquired the crude oil
     transportation and marketing operations of Pride Companies, L.P. for $29.6
     million in cash and the assumption of $5.3 million of debt. The purchase
     price was allocated to the assets acquired and liabilities assumed based
     on their fair value. The acquired assets included Pride's 800-mile crude
     oil pipeline system, 800,000 barrels of tankage and related assets, and
     the right to purchase 35,000 barrels per day of third party lease crude
     oil. The results of operations and related operating data relating to the
     acquired business have been included in the above table from the date of
     acquisition. We have included the purchase price of this acquisition in
     expansion capital expenditures.
/(2)/Includes equity income from our master partnership's investment in
     Explorer Pipeline Company, a joint venture in which we own a 9.4% interest.
/(3)/EBITDA divided by interest cost before capitalized interest.
/(4)/Earnings represent income before income tax expense before deducting fixed

                                 RISK FACTORS

   You should carefully consider the following risk factors together with all
the other information included in this prospectus before deciding to exchange
any notes.

   If any of the following risks were actually to occur, our business,
financial condition, or results of operations could be materially adversely
affected.

Risks Inherent in Our Business

We are required to distribute all of our available cash to our general partner
and the master partnership.

   Pursuant to our partnership agreement, we are required to distribute, on a
quarterly basis, 0.01% of available cash to our general partner and 99.99% of
available cash to the master partnership. Available cash is generally all cash
on hand, plus working capital borrowings, as adjusted for reserves. Our general
partner will determine the amount and timing of such distributions and has
broad discretion to establish and make additions to reserves, for any proper
purpose, including but not limited to reserves for the purpose of (i) complying
with the terms of any agreement or obligation (including the establishment of
reserves to fund the payment of interest and principal in the future, including
on the notes), and (ii) providing for future capital expenditure payments
deemed by the master partnership to be necessary or desirable. Please read "Our
Partnership Agreement--Cash Distributions."

Cost reimbursements, which will be determined in our master partnership's
general partner's sole discretion, and fees due our master partnership's
general partner and its affiliates will be substantial.

   For three years beginning February 8, 2002, we will pay Sunoco, Inc. or our
master partnership's general partner an administrative fee of $8.0 million per
year for the provision by Sunoco, Inc. or its affiliates of various general and
administrative services for our benefit. The administrative fee may increase in
the second and third years by up to a maximum of 2.5% per year and may also
increase if we make an acquisition that requires an increase in the level of
general and administrative services that we receive from Sunoco, Inc. or its
affiliates. In addition, the master partnership's general partner is entitled
to reimbursement for all other expenses it incurs on our behalf, including the
salaries of and the cost of employee benefits for employees of our master
partnership's general partner, including senior executives, who provide
services to us. Our master partnership's general partner has sole discretion in
determining the amount of these expenses. Our master partnership's general
partner and its affiliates also may provide us other services for which we will
be charged fees as determined by our master partnership's general partner.

We depend upon Sunoco R&M for a substantial portion of the crude oil and
refined products transported on our pipelines and handled at our terminals, and
any reduction in these quantities would reduce our ability to service our debt
obligations.

   For the year ended December 31, 2001, Sunoco R&M accounted for approximately
73% of the pro forma revenues of our Eastern Pipeline System, 65% of the pro
forma revenues of our Terminal Facilities, and 66% of the pro forma revenues of
our Western Pipeline System. We received the balance of our revenues from third
parties. We will continue to remain dependent on third parties for additional
revenues. Our pipelines and terminals storage and throughput agreement does not
cover our crude oil acquisition and marketing business or our Nederland
Terminal. In addition, although the contract makes provision for escalation of
the fees charged to Sunoco R&M, the increased fees may be inadequate to cover
increased costs in the future.

   With the exception of our Nederland Terminal, Sunoco R&M accounts for
substantially all of the throughput volumes at our Terminal Facilities. In
addition, Sunoco R&M and its affiliates are the only shippers on approximately
850 miles of our Eastern Pipeline System, and Sunoco R&M is the only shipper on
approximately 45 miles of our Western Pipeline System. We expect to continue to
derive a substantial portion of

                                      15


<PAGE>

our revenues from Sunoco R&M for the foreseeable future. If Sunoco R&M were to
decrease the throughput transported in our pipelines for any reason, our
revenues would decline and our ability to service our debt obligations could be
adversely affected.

Sunoco R&M's obligations under the pipelines and terminals storage and
throughput agreement may be reduced or suspended in some circumstances.

   Sunoco R&M's obligations under the pipelines and terminals storage and
throughput agreement may be permanently reduced in some circumstances, which
could reduce our ability to service our debt obligations. These events, some of
which are within the exclusive control of Sunoco R&M, include:

   . Governmental action that prohibits Sunoco R&M from using MTBE in the
     gasoline it produces if Sunoco R&M reasonably believes in good faith that
     this action will jeopardize its ability to satisfy its minimum revenue or
     throughput obligations.

   . The inability of Sunoco R&M and us to agree on the amount of any surcharge
     required to be paid by Sunoco R&M to cover substantial and unanticipated
     costs that we may incur in complying with new laws or governmental
     regulations applicable to our Terminal Facilities.

   . A decision by Sunoco R&M to shut down or reconfigure one or more of its
     refineries if Sunoco R&M reasonably believes in good faith that such event
     will jeopardize its ability to satisfy its minimum revenue or throughput
     obligations. Factors that might lead Sunoco R&M to shut down or
     reconfigure a refinery include:

       -  reduced demand for refined products produced at the refinery;

       -  increasingly stringent environmental regulations. For example, Sunoco
          R&M has estimated that it will be required to make capital
          expenditures of approximately $300 million to $400 million over the
          next five years at its refineries to bring them into compliance with
          the Environmental Protection Agency's new rules limiting the sulfur
          in motor gasoline and diesel fuel;

       -  a catastrophic event at a refinery, such as a major fire, flood, or
          explosion; and

       -  environmental proceedings or other litigation that could limit all or
          a portion of the operations at a refinery. As part of a Clean Air Act
          enforcement initiative, the EPA has requested information relating to
          potential violations of the Clean Air Act from Sunoco R&M and other
          refiners. The EPA has entered into consent agreements with several
          refiners that require them to make significant capital expenditures
          to install control equipment to reduce emissions of sulfur dioxide,
          nitrogen oxides, and particulate matter. Pursuant to this enforcement
          initiative, Sunoco R&M recently has received notices of violation
          from the EPA relating to its Marcus Hook, Philadelphia and Toledo
          refineries. Sunoco R&M is currently evaluating the notices of
          violation for all three refineries to determine how it will respond.
          In resolving these notices of violation, Sunoco R&M could be required
          to make significant capital expenditures, operate these refineries at
          reduced levels, and pay significant penalties. See
          "Business--Environmental Regulation."

   Depending on the ultimate cost of complying with existing and future
environmental regulations or proceedings, Sunoco R&M may determine that it is
more economical to reduce production at a refinery or shut down all or a
portion of a refinery rather than make these capital expenditures. Sunoco R&M's
obligations under the pipelines and terminals storage and throughput agreement
would be reduced in this event and our ability to service our debt obligations
could also be reduced.

   Furthermore, Sunoco R&M's obligations would be temporarily suspended during
the occurrence of an event that is outside the control of the parties, which
renders performance impossible with respect to an asset for at least 30 days.
The occurrence of any of these events could reduce our revenues and cash flow,
and our ability to service our debt obligations.

                                      16

   Sunoco, Inc. continually considers opportunities presented by third parties
with respect to its refinery assets. These opportunities may include offers to
purchase and joint venture propositions. Sunoco, Inc. also continually
considers changes to its refineries. Those changes may involve new facilities,
reduction in certain operations or modifications of facilities or operations.
Changes may be considered to meet market demands, to satisfy regulatory
requirements or environmental and safety objectives, to improve operational
efficiency or for other reasons. Sunoco, Inc. is actively managing its assets
and operations, and, therefore, changes of some nature, possibly material to
its business relationship with us, are likely to occur at some point in the
future.

If Sunoco R&M satisfies only its minimum obligations under, or if we are unable
to renew or extend, our pipelines and terminals storage and throughput
agreement, our results of operations may be adversely affected.

   Sunoco R&M may reduce the volumes it transports on our pipelines or delivers
at our terminals to the minimum amounts it is obligated to transport or deliver
under the pipelines and terminals storage and throughput agreement. In
addition, the terms of Sunoco R&M's obligations under the pipelines and
terminals storage and throughput agreement are of relatively brief duration,
ranging from five to seven years. If Sunoco R&M fails to use our facilities
after expiration of the agreement and we are unable to generate additional
revenues from third parties, our results of operations would be adversely
affected.

A significant decrease in demand for refined products in the markets served by
our pipelines would adversely affect our results of operations.

   A sustained decrease in demand for refined products in the markets served by
our pipelines would significantly reduce our revenues. Factors that could lead
to a decrease in market demand include:

   . a recession or other adverse economic condition that results in lower
     spending by consumers on gasoline, diesel fuel, and travel;

   . an increase in the market price of crude oil that leads to higher refined
     product prices;

   . higher fuel taxes or other governmental or regulatory actions that
     increase, directly or indirectly, the cost of gasoline or other refined
     products; and

   . a shift by consumers to more fuel-efficient or alternative fuel vehicles
     or an increase in fuel economy, whether as a result of technological
     advances by manufacturers, pending legislation proposing to mandate higher
     fuel economy, or otherwise.

Due to our lack of asset diversification, adverse developments in our pipelines
and terminals businesses could reduce our ability to service our debt
obligations.

   We rely exclusively on the revenues generated from our pipelines and
terminals businesses. Due to our lack of asset diversification, an adverse
development in one of these businesses could have a significantly greater
impact on our financial condition and results of operations than if we
maintained more diverse assets.

Rate regulation may not allow us to recover the full amount of increases in our
costs, and a successful challenge to our rates may reduce our ability to
service our debt obligations.

   The primary rate-making methodology of the Federal Energy Regulatory
Commission, or FERC, is price indexing. We use this methodology in all of our
interstate markets. The indexing method allows a pipeline to increase its rates
by a percentage equal to the change in the producer price index for finished
goods minus 1%. If the index rises by less than 1% or falls, we will be
required to reduce our rates that are based on the FERC's price indexing
methodology if they exceed the new maximum allowable rate. In addition, changes
in the index might not be large enough to fully reflect actual increases in our
costs. The FERC's rate-making methodologies may limit our ability to set rates
based on our true costs or may delay the use of rates that reflect increased
costs. Any of the foregoing could adversely affect our revenues and cash flow.

                                      17


<PAGE>

   Under the Energy Policy Act adopted in 1992, our interstate pipeline rates
were deemed just and reasonable or "grandfathered." As that Act applies to our
rates, a person challenging a grandfathered rate must, as a threshold matter,
establish a substantial change since the date of enactment of the Act, in
either the economic circumstances or the nature of the service that formed the
basis for the rate. A complainant might assert that the creation of the
partnership itself constitutes such a change, an argument that has not
previously been specifically addressed by the FERC. If the FERC were to find a
substantial change in circumstances, then the existing rates could be subject
to detailed review. There is a risk that some of our rates could be found to be
in excess of levels justified by our cost of service. In such event, the FERC
would order us to reduce our rates. Any such reduction would result in lower
revenues and cash flows and may reduce our ability to service our debt
obligations. Please read "Business--Rate Regulation--Our Pipelines."

   In a 1995 decision involving an unrelated oil pipeline limited partnership,
the FERC partially disallowed the inclusion of income taxes in that
partnership's cost of service. In another FERC proceeding involving a different
oil pipeline limited partnership, the FERC held that the oil pipeline limited
partnership may not claim an income tax allowance for income attributable to
non-corporate limited partners. If our rates were challenged and the FERC were
to disallow the inclusion of an income tax allowance in our cost of service, it
may be more difficult for us to justify our rates.

   In addition, a state commission could also investigate our intrastate rates
or our terms and conditions of service on its own initiative or at the urging
of a shipper or other interested party. If a state commission found that our
rates exceeded levels justified by our cost of service, the state commission
could order us to reduce our rates.

   Sunoco R&M has agreed not to challenge, or to cause others to challenge or
assist others in challenging, our tariff rates in effect during the term of the
pipelines and terminals storage and throughput agreement. This agreement does
not prevent other current or future shippers from challenging our tariff rates.
At the end of the term of the agreement, Sunoco R&M will be free to challenge,
or to cause other parties to challenge or assist others in challenging, our
tariff rates in effect at that time. If any party successfully challenges our
tariff rates, the effect may be to reduce our revenues and cash flow and
adversely affect our ability to service our debt obligations.

   Potential changes to current rate-making methods and procedures may impact
the federal and state regulations under which we will operate in the future. In
addition, if the FERC's petroleum pipeline ratemaking methodology changes, the
new methodology could result in tariffs that generate lower revenues and cash
flow and adversely affect our ability to service our debt obligations. Please
read "Business--Rate Regulation" for more information on our tariff rates.

Our operations are subject to federal, state, and local laws and regulations
relating to environmental protection and operational safety that could require
us to make substantial expenditures.

   Our pipelines, gathering systems, and terminal operations are subject to
increasingly strict environmental and safety laws and regulations. The
transportation and storage of refined products and crude oil result in a risk
that refined products, crude oil, and other hydrocarbons may be suddenly or
gradually released into the environment, potentially causing substantial
expenditures for a response action, significant government penalties, liability
to government agencies for natural resources damages, personal injury, or
property damages to private parties and significant business interruption. We
own or lease a number of properties that have been used to store or distribute
refined products and crude oil for many years. Many of these properties have
also been operated by third parties whose handling, disposal, or release of
hydrocarbons and other wastes were not under our control. We expect it will
cost approximately $8.6 million to assess, monitor, and remediate 19 sites,
identified at December 31, 2001, where releases of crude oil or petroleum
products have occurred. Please read "Business--Environmental Regulation" and
"--Environmental Remediation" for more information.

                                      18


<PAGE>

   We estimate that we will spend $8.2 million on storage tank inspection and
repair over the next five years at our Nederland Terminal. We also expect to
spend approximately $8.0 million in each of the next five years to comply with
the recently adopted pipeline integrity management rule of the U.S. Department
of Transportation, or DOT. Although Sunoco, Inc. has agreed to indemnify us for
costs in excess of $8.0 million per year, up to a maximum of $15.0 million over
the next five years with regard to compliance with this DOT pipeline integrity
management rule, the cost to perform such activities may exceed these estimated
amounts and the amount of any indemnification. If we are not able to recover
the excess costs through increased tariffs and revenues, our ability to service
our debt obligations could be adversely affected.

If existing or future state or federal government regulations banning or
restricting the use of MTBE in gasoline take effect, this action could
adversely affect our results of operations.

   Our Eastern refined product pipeline system transports from Sunoco R&M's
refineries gasoline containing MTBE, an oxygenate used extensively to reduce
motor vehicle tailpipe emissions. Many states, including New York and
Connecticut, have banned or restricted the use of MTBE in gasoline commencing
as early as 2003 in response to concerns about MTBE's adverse impact on ground
or surface water. Other states are considering bans or restrictions on MTBE or
opting out of the EPA's reformulated gasoline program, either of which events
would reduce the use of MTBE. Any ban or restriction on the use of MTBE may
lead to the greater use of ethanol. Unlike MTBE, which can be blended in
gasoline at the refinery, ethanol is blended at the terminal and is not
transported by our pipelines. Any revenues we would receive for blending
ethanol might not offset the loss of revenues we would suffer from the reduced
volumes we transport on our Eastern refined product pipelines. In addition,
Congress is currently considering removing or modifying the oxygenate
requirement, which could reduce the amount of gasoline transported on our
Eastern refined product pipelines thereby adversely affecting our results of
operations and reducing our ability to service our debt obligations.

When the price of foreign crude oil delivered to the United States is greater
than that of domestic crude oil, or the price for the future delivery of crude
oil falls below current prices, our customers are less likely to store crude
oil, thereby reducing our storage revenues at our Nederland Terminal.

   Most of the crude oil stored at our Nederland Terminal is foreign crude oil.
When the price of foreign crude oil delivered to the United States is greater
than that of domestic crude oil, the demand for this storage capacity may
decrease. If this market condition occurs, our storage revenues will be lower,
which could adversely affect our ability to service our debt obligations.

   When the price of crude oil in a given month exceeds the price of crude oil
for delivery in a subsequent month, the market is backwardated. When the crude
oil market is backwardated, the demand for storage capacity at our Nederland
Terminal may decrease because crude oil producers can capture a premium for
prompt deliveries rather than storing it for sale later. The market has been in
backwardation for much of the last several years. In a backwardated market, our
storage revenues may be lower, which could reduce our ability to service our
debt.

A material decrease in the supply, or increase in the price, of crude oil
available for transport through our Western Pipeline System could reduce our
ability to service our debt.

   The volume of crude oil we transport in our crude oil pipelines depends on
the availability of attractively priced crude oil produced in the areas
accessible to our crude oil pipelines and received from other common carrier
pipelines. If we do not replace volumes lost due to a material temporary or
permanent decrease in supply, the volumes of crude oil transported through our
pipelines would decline, reducing our revenues and cash flow and our ability to
service our debt obligations. For example, some of the gathering systems that
supply crude oil that we transport on our Western Pipeline System are
experiencing a decline in production. In addition, sustained low crude oil
prices could lead to a decline in drilling activity and production levels or
the shutting-in or abandonment of marginal wells. Similarly, a temporary or
permanent material increase in the price of crude oil supplied from any of
these sources, as compared to alternative sources of crude oil available to our
customers, could cause the volumes of crude oil transported in our pipelines to
decline, thereby reducing our revenues and cash flow and adversely affecting
our ability to service our debt obligations.

                                      19


<PAGE>

Any reduction in the capability of or the allocations to our shippers in
interconnecting, third-party pipelines could cause a reduction of volumes
transported in our pipelines and through our terminals, which could reduce our
ability to service our debt obligations.

   Sunoco R&M and the other users of our pipelines and terminals are dependent
upon connections to third-party pipelines to receive and deliver crude oil and
refined products. Any reduction of capabilities of these interconnecting
pipelines due to testing, line repair, reduced operating pressures, or other
causes could result in reduced volumes transported in our pipelines or through
our terminals. Similarly, if additional shippers begin transporting volumes
over interconnecting pipelines, the allocations to our existing shippers could
be reduced, which could also reduce volumes transported in our pipelines or
through our terminals. Any reduction in volumes transported in our pipelines or
through our terminals could adversely affect our revenues and cash flow.

Our operations are subject to operational hazards and unforeseen interruptions
for which we may not be adequately insured.

   Our operations are subject to operational hazards and unforeseen
interruptions such as natural disasters, adverse weather, accidents, fires,
explosions, hazardous materials releases, and other events beyond our control.
These events might result in a loss of equipment or life, injury, or extensive
property damage, as well as an interruption in our operations. We may not be
able to maintain or obtain insurance of the type and amount we desire at
reasonable rates. As a result of market conditions, premiums and deductibles
for certain of our insurance policies have increased substantially, and could
escalate further. In some instances, certain insurance could become unavailable
or available only for reduced amounts of coverage. For example, insurance
carriers are now requiring broad exclusions for losses due to war risk and
terrorist acts. If we were to incur a significant liability for which we were
not fully insured, it could have a material adverse effect on our financial
position.

We are exposed to the credit risk of our customers in the ordinary course of
our crude oil acquisition and marketing activities.

   When we purchase crude oil at the wellhead, we sometimes pay all of or a
portion of the production proceeds to an operator who distributes these
proceeds to the various interest owners, an arrangement that exposes us to
operator credit risk. Therefore, we must determine whether operators have
sufficient financial resources to make these payments and distributions and to
indemnify and defend us in case of a protest, action, or complaint. Even if our
credit review and analysis mechanisms work properly, we may experience losses
in dealings with operators and other parties.

Competing pipelines could cause us to reduce our rates.

   If a competing crude oil or refined product pipeline charged lower rates
than we do, we could be forced to reduce our rates to remain competitive, which
would reduce our revenues and cash flow. Several companies have announced
pipeline expansion or conversion projects that will likely begin competing with
Explorer Pipeline Company and portions of our West Texas pipeline system this
year.

If we do not make acquisitions on economically acceptable terms, any future
growth will be limited.

   Our future growth will depend principally on our ability to make
acquisitions at attractive prices. If we are unable to identify attractive
acquisition candidates or we are unable to acquire businesses on economically
acceptable terms, our future growth will be limited. Any acquisition involves
potential risks, including:

   . the inability to integrate the operations of recently acquired businesses;

   . the diversion of management's attention from other business concerns;

   . customer or key employee loss from the acquired businesses; and

   . a significant increase in our indebtedness and working capital
     requirements.

                                      20


<PAGE>

   Any of these factors would adversely affect our ability to achieve
anticipated levels of cash flows from our acquisitions or realize other
anticipated benefits. In addition, competition from other buyers could reduce
our acquisition opportunities or cause us to pay a higher price than we might
otherwise pay.

Restrictions in our and Sunoco, Inc.'s debt agreements may prevent us from
engaging in some beneficial transactions.

   As of March 31, 2002, our total outstanding long-term indebtedness was
approximately $255 million, including $250 million of the notes and
approximately $5 million of other indebtedness. The termination of the
pipelines and terminals storage and throughput agreement prior to its
expiration will constitute an event of default under our credit facility. Our
leverage and various other limitations in our credit facility and the notes may
reduce our ability to incur additional debt, engage in some transactions, and
capitalize on acquisition or other business opportunities. Please read
"Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of
Operations--Liquidity and Capital Resources." Sunoco, Inc.'s revolving credit
facility also limits the aggregate amount of debt Sunoco, Inc. and its
consolidated subsidiaries, including us, may borrow. Since Sunoco, Inc. owns
and controls the master partnership's general partner, we may not be permitted
to incur additional debt if the effect would be to cause an event of default
under Sunoco, Inc.'s revolving credit agreement. Any subsequent refinancing of
Sunoco, Inc.'s or our current debt or any new debt could have similar or
greater restrictions.

Terrorist attacks aimed at our facilities could adversely affect our business.

   On September 11, 2001, the United States was the target of terrorist attacks
of unprecedented scale. Since the September 11 attacks, the U.S. government has
issued warnings that energy assets, specifically our nation's pipeline
infrastructure, may be the future targets of terrorist organizations. These
developments have subjected our operations to increased risks. Any future
terrorist attack at our facilities, those of our customers and, in some cases,
those of our pipelines, could have a material adverse effect on our business.

Risks Inherent in an Investment in Us

Sunoco, Inc. and its affiliates have conflicts of interest which may permit
them to favor their own interests to your detriment.

   Sunoco, Inc. indirectly owns the 2% general partner interest and a 73.2%
limited partner interest in the master partnership and owns and controls the
general partner of our master partnership. Conflicts of interest may arise
between Sunoco, Inc. and its affiliates, including our master partnership's
general partner, on the one hand, and us, on the other hand. As a result of
these conflicts, the general partner may favor its own interests and the
interests of its affiliates over our interests. These conflicts include, among
others, the following situations:

   . Sunoco R&M, as a shipper on our pipelines, has an economic incentive not
     to cause us to seek higher tariff rates or terminalling fees, even if such
     higher rates or terminalling fees would reflect rates that could be
     obtained in arm's-length, third-party transactions;

   . neither our partnership agreement nor any other agreement requires Sunoco,
     Inc. to pursue a business strategy that favors us or utilizes our assets,
     including whether to increase or decrease refinery production, whether to
     shut down or reconfigure a refinery, or what markets to pursue or grow.
     Sunoco, Inc.'s directors and officers have a fiduciary duty to make these
     decisions in the best interests of the stockholders of Sunoco, Inc.;

   . the master partnership's general partner is allowed to take into account
     the interests of parties other than us, such as Sunoco, Inc., in resolving
     conflicts of interest;

   . the master partnership's general partner determines the amount and timing
     of asset purchases and sales, capital expenditures, borrowings, issuance
     of additional partnership securities, and reserves, each of which can
     affect the amount of cash available to service our debt obligations;


                                      21


<PAGE>

   . the master partnership's general partner determines which costs incurred
     by Sunoco, Inc. and its affiliates are reimbursable by us;

   . the master partnership's partnership agreement does not restrict its
     general partner from causing the master partnership to pay its general
     partner or its affiliates for any services rendered on terms that are fair
     and reasonable to us or entering into additional contractual arrangements
     with any of these entities on our behalf;

   . the master partnership's general partner controls the enforcement of
     obligations owed to us by the master partnership's general partner and its
     affiliates, including the pipelines and terminals storage and throughput
     agreement with Sunoco R&M;

   . the master partnership's general partner decides whether to retain
     separate counsel, accountants, or others to perform services for us; and

   . Sunoco, Inc. may at any time propose that we undertake a project to
     develop and construct or acquire an asset, and if our general partner
     determines in its good faith judgment, with the concurrence of its
     conflicts committee, that the project, including the terms on which
     Sunoco, Inc. would agree to use such asset, will be beneficial on the
     whole to us and that proceeding with the project will not effectively
     preclude us from undertaking another project that will be more beneficial
     to us, we will be required to use our commercially reasonable efforts to
     finance, develop, and construct or acquire the asset.

   Please read "Certain Relationships and Related Transactions--Omnibus
Agreement."

Sunoco, Inc. and its affiliates may engage in limited competition with us.

   Sunoco, Inc. and its affiliates may engage in limited competition with us.
Pursuant to the omnibus agreement, Sunoco, Inc. and its affiliates have agreed
not to engage in the business of purchasing crude oil at the wellhead or
operating refined product or crude oil pipelines or terminals or LPG terminals
in the continental United States. The omnibus agreement, however, does not
apply to:

   . any business operated by Sunoco, Inc. or any of its subsidiaries at the
     closing of the initial public offering of the master partnership;

   . any logistics asset constructed by Sunoco, Inc. or any of its subsidiaries
     within a manufacturing or refining facility in connection with the
     operation of that facility;

   . any business that Sunoco, Inc. or any of its subsidiaries acquires or
     constructs that has a fair market value of less than $5.0 million; and

   . any business that Sunoco, Inc. or any of its subsidiaries acquires or
     constructs that has a fair market value of $5.0 million or more if we have
     been offered the opportunity to purchase the business for fair market
     value, and we decline to do so with the concurrence of our conflicts
     committee.

   Upon a change of control of Sunoco, Inc. or a sale of the general partner by
Sunoco, Inc., the non-competition provisions of the omnibus agreement may
terminate.

Risks Relating to the Notes

If you do not properly tender your outstanding notes, you will continue to hold
unregistered outstanding notes and your ability to transfer outstanding notes
will remain restricted and may be adversely affected.

   We will only issue new notes in exchange for outstanding notes that you
timely and properly tender. Therefore, you should allow sufficient time to
ensure timely delivery of the outstanding notes and you should carefully follow
the instructions on how to tender your outstanding notes. Neither we nor the
exchange agent is required to tell you of any defects or irregularities with
respect to your tender of outstanding notes.


                                      22


<PAGE>

   If you do not exchange your outstanding notes for new notes pursuant to the
exchange offer, the outstanding notes you hold will continue to be subject to
the existing transfer restrictions. In general, you may not offer or sell the
outstanding notes except under an exemption from, or in a transaction not
subject to, the Securities Act of 1933 and applicable state securities laws. We
do not plan to register outstanding notes under the Securities Act of 1933
unless our registration rights agreement with the initial purchasers of the
outstanding notes requires us to do so. Further, if you continue to hold any
outstanding notes after the exchange offer is consummated, you may have trouble
selling them because there will be fewer outstanding notes in the market.

We may not be able to generate sufficient cash flow to meet our debt service
obligations.

   Our ability to make payments on and to refinance our indebtedness, including
the notes, and to fund planned capital expenditures will depend on our ability
to generate cash in the future. This, to a certain extent, is subject to
general economic, financial, competitive, legislative, regulatory and other
factors that are beyond our control.

   We cannot assure you that we will generate sufficient cash flow from
operations, that currently anticipated operating improvements will be realized
or that future borrowings will be available to us under our revolving credit
facility in an amount sufficient to fund our other liquidity needs. We may need
to refinance all or a portion of our indebtedness, including the notes, on or
before maturity. We cannot assure you that we will be able to refinance any of
our indebtedness, including our revolving credit facility and the notes, on
commercially reasonable terms or at all.

We are a holding company. We conduct our operations through our subsidiaries
and depend on cash flow from our subsidiaries to make payments on the notes.

   We are a holding company. We conduct our operations through our
subsidiaries. As a result, our cash flow and our ability to service our debt,
including the notes, is dependent upon the earnings of our subsidiaries. In
addition, we are dependent on the distribution of earnings, loans or other
payments from our subsidiaries to us. Any payment of dividends, distributions,
loans or other payments from our subsidiaries to us could be subject to
statutory or contractual restrictions. Payments to us by our subsidiaries also
will be contingent upon the profitability of our subsidiaries. If we are unable
to obtain funds from our subsidiaries we may not be able to pay interest or
principal on the notes when due and we cannot assure you that we will be able
to obtain the necessary funds from other sources.

Following this exchange offer, we could incur a substantial amount of debt,
which could materially adversely affect our financial condition, results of
operations and business prospects and prevent us from fulfilling our
obligations under the notes.

   We are permitted under our revolving credit facility and the indenture
governing the notes to incur additional debt, subject to certain limitations
under our revolving credit facility and, in the case of secured debt, under the
indenture governing the notes. If we incur additional debt following this
exchange offer, our increased leverage could, for example:

   . make it more difficult for us to satisfy our obligations under the notes
     or other indebtedness and, if we fail to comply with the requirements of
     the other indebtedness, could result in an event of default on the notes
     or such other indebtedness;

   . require us to dedicate a substantial portion of our cash flow from
     operations to required payments on indebtedness, thereby reducing the
     availability of cash flow from working capital, capital expenditures and
     other general business activities;

   . limit our ability to obtain additional financing in the future for working
     capital, capital expenditures and other general corporate activities;

   . limit our flexibility in planning for, or reacting to, changes in our
     business and the industry in which we operate;


                                      23


<PAGE>

   . detract from our ability to successfully withstand a downturn in our
     business or the economy generally; and

   . place us at a competitive disadvantage against less leveraged competitors.

We may not be able to repurchase the notes upon a change of control.

   Upon the occurrence of a change of control to a non-investment grade entity,
we must offer to repurchase the notes. We may not have sufficient funds at the
time of the change of control to make the required repurchases of the notes.
Additionally, certain events that would constitute a "change of control" (as
defined in the indenture) would constitute an event of default under our
revolving credit facility that would, if it should occur, permit the lenders to
accelerate the debt outstanding under our revolving credit facility and that,
in turn, would cause an event of default under the indenture.

In the event of our bankruptcy or liquidation, holders of the notes will be
paid from any assets remaining after payments to any holders of secured debt
and debt of our non-guarantor subsidiaries.

   The notes will be general unsecured senior obligations of us and our
subsidiary guarantors, and effectively subordinated to any secured debt that we
may have in the future to the extent of the value of the assets securing that
debt. As of March 31, 2002, we had approximately $5 million of secured
indebtedness. The indenture permits us to incur additional secured indebtedness
provided certain conditions are met. In addition, while all our existing
subsidiaries have guaranteed the notes, in the event any of our subsidiaries in
the future do not guarantee the notes, the notes will be effectively
subordinated to the liabilities of any of these non-guarantor subsidiaries.

   If we are declared bankrupt or insolvent, or are liquidated, the holders of
our secured debt and any debt of our non-guarantor subsidiaries will be
entitled to be paid from our assets before any payment may be made with respect
to the notes. If any of the foregoing events occur, we cannot assure you that
we will have sufficient assets to pay amounts due on our secured debt and the
notes.

The subsidiary guarantees could be deemed fraudulent conveyances under certain
circumstances, and a court may try to subordinate or void the subsidiary
guarantees.

   Under the federal bankruptcy laws and comparable provisions of state
fraudulent transfer laws, a guarantee by a subsidiary could be voided, or
claims in respect of a guarantee could be subordinated to all other debts of
that guarantor if, among other things, the guarantor, at the time it incurred
the indebtedness evidenced by its guarantee:

   . received less than reasonably equivalent value or fair consideration for
     the incurrence of such guarantee; and

       -  was insolvent or rendered insolvent by reason of such incurrence; or

       -  was engaged in a business or transaction for which the guarantor's
          remaining assets constituted unreasonably small capital; or

       -  intended to incur, or believed that it would incur, debts beyond its
          ability to pay such debts as they mature.

   In addition, any payment by that subsidiary guarantor pursuant to its
guarantee could be voided and required to be returned to the guarantor, or to a
fund for the benefit of the creditors of the guarantor. The measures of
insolvency for purposes of these fraudulent transfer laws will vary depending
upon the law applied in any proceeding to determine whether a fraudulent
transfer has occurred. Generally, however, a guarantor would be considered
insolvent if:

   . the sum of its debts, including contingent liabilities were greater than
     the fair saleable value of all of its assets;


                                      24


<PAGE>

   . the present fair saleable value of its assets were less than the amount
     that would be required to pay its probable liability, including contingent
     liabilities, on its existing debts, as they become absolute and mature; or

   . it could not pay its debts as they become due.

Your ability to transfer the new notes may be limited by the absence of an
active trading market, and there is no assurance that any active true market
will develop for the new notes.

   The new notes are a new issue of securities for which there is no
established public market. Although we have registered the new notes under the
Securities Act of 1933, we do not intend to apply for listing of the new notes
on any securities exchange or for quotation of the new notes in any automated
dealer quotation system. In addition, although the initial purchasers of the
outstanding notes have informed us that they intend to make a market in the new
notes after the exchange offer, as permitted by applicable laws and
regulations, they are not obliged to make a market in the new notes, and they
may discontinue their market-making activities at any time without notice.
Therefore, we cannot assure you that an active market for the new notes will
develop or, if developed, that it will continue. Finally, if a large number of
holders of outstanding notes do not tender outstanding notes or tender
outstanding notes improperly, the limited amount of new notes that would be
issued and outstanding after we consummate the exchange offer could adversely
affect the development of a market for these new notes.

                                      25


<PAGE>

                                EXCHANGE OFFER

   In connection with the issuance of the outstanding notes, we entered into a
registration rights agreement. The following description of the registration
rights agreement is a summary only. It is not complete and does not describe
all of the provisions of the registration rights agreement. For more
information, you should review the provisions of the registration rights
agreement that we filed with the SEC as an exhibit to the registration
statement of which this prospectus is a part. In addition, the information
below concerning specific interpretation of, and positions taken by, the staff
of the SEC is not intended to constitute legal advice. You should consult your
own legal advisors with respect to those matters.

Purpose and Effect of the Exchange Offer

   Under the registration rights agreement, we agreed that, promptly after the
effectiveness of the registration statement of which this prospectus is a part,
we would offer to the holders of outstanding notes, who are not prohibited by
any law or policy of the SEC from participating in the exchange offer, the
opportunity to exchange their outstanding notes for an issue of a new series of
notes, which we refer to as the new notes. The new notes are identical in all
material respects to the outstanding notes, except that the new notes: will not
contain transfer restrictions; will be registered under the Securities Act of
1933; will not contain provisions regarding the payment of additional interest;
and will not be subject to further registration rights. We agreed to keep the
exchange offer open for not less than 20 business days after the date on which
the registration statement, of which this prospectus is a part, is declared
effective by the SEC, or longer if required by applicable law.

   The registration rights agreement also provides that we will:

   . make available, for a period of 180 days after the consummation of the
     exchange offer, a prospectus meeting the requirements of the Securities
     Act of 1933 to any broker-dealer for use in connection with any resale of
     any new notes;

   . pay expenses incident to the exchange offer; and

   . indemnify certain holders of the outstanding notes, including any
     broker-dealer, against some liabilities, including liabilities under the
     Securities Act of 1933.

   The new notes will bear interest at a rate of 7.25% per year, payable
semiannually on February 15 and August 15 of each year, beginning on August 15,
2002. Holders of the new notes will receive interest from the date of the
original issuance of the outstanding notes, or from the date of the last
payment of interest on the oustanding notes, whichever is later. Holders of new
notes will not receive any interest on outstanding notes tendered and accepted
for exchange.

   Each holder of outstanding notes, other than specified holders, who wishes
to exchange their outstanding notes for new notes in the exchange offer will be
required to make representations, including representations that:

   . it is not our affiliate;

   . it is not a broker-dealer tendering notes acquired directly from us for
     its own account;

   . the outstanding notes being exchanged, and any new notes to be received,
     by it have been or will be acquired in the ordinary course of business; and

   . it has no arrangement or understanding with any person to participate in
     the distribution within the meaning of the Securities Act of 1933 of the
     new notes.

Shelf Registration

   . If we are not permitted to consummate the exchange offer as contemplated
     in this prospectus because the exchange offer is not permitted by
     applicable law or SEC policy;

                                      26


<PAGE>

   . if for any other reason, the exchange offer is not consummated within 240
     days following the original issuance of the outstanding notes; or

   . upon notice to us by any holder in specified circumstances,

then we will, in addition to or instead of effecting the registration of the
new notes pursuant to the registration statement of which this prospectus is a
part, as the case may be,

   . file as promptly as practicable with the SEC, but in no event more than 60
     days after so required or requested or, if later, 90 days after the
     original issuance of the outstanding notes, a shelf registration statement
     to cover resales of the notes by those holders who satisfy various
     conditions relating to the provision of information in connection with the
     shelf registration statement;

   . use our best efforts to have the shelf registration statement declared
     effective by the SEC as soon as practicable after it is filed, and in any
     event not later than 120 days after so required to file such shelf
     registration statement or, if later, 210 days after the original issuance
     of the outstanding notes; and

   . use our commercially reasonable efforts to keep the shelf registration
     statement effective until two years after the original issuance of the
     outstanding notes or until all of the notes covered by the shelf
     registration statement have been sold pursuant thereto or otherwise cease
     to be "registrable notes" within the meaning of the registration rights
     agreement; provided, however, that we may fail to keep the shelf
     registration statement effective and usable for offers and sales of notes
     for specified periods under certain circumstances.

   We will, in the event of the filing of a shelf registration statement,
provide to each holder of notes that are covered by the shelf registration
statement copies of the prospectus that is a part of the shelf registration
statement and notify each holder when the shelf registration statement has
become effective. A holder of notes that sells the notes pursuant to the shelf
registration statement generally will be required to be named as a selling
securityholder in the related prospectus, to deliver information to be used in
connection with the shelf registration, and to deliver a prospectus to
purchasers, will be subject to the civil liability provisions under the
Securities Act in connection with the sales and will be bound by the provisions
of the registration rights agreement that are applicable to the holder,
including indemnification rights.

Additional Interest

   If any of the following events occur, each of which is referred to as a
registration default:

   . the exchange offer is not consummated on or prior to the 210th calendar
     day following the original issuance of the outstanding notes;

   . if required, the shelf registration statement is not declared effective on
     or prior to the 210th calendar day following the original issuance of the
     outstanding notes; or

   . if either the registration statement of which this prospectus is a part or
     the shelf registration statement has been filed and declared effective but
     after its effective date ceases to be effective or is unusable for its
     intended purpose for more than 45 days in any twelve-month period;

then we will be obligated to pay additional interest to each holder of the
notes in addition to the rate shown on the cover page of this prospectus, from
and including the date on which any such registration default shall occur to,
but excluding the date on which the registration default has been cured, at the
rate of 0.25% per year, plus an additional 0.25% per year from and during any
period in which the registration default has continued for more than 90 days,
up to a maximum rate of 0.50% per year. In no event will the additional
interest on the notes exceed 0.50% per year. We will have no other liabilities
for monetary damages with respect to our registration obligations. With respect
to each holder, our obligations to pay additional interest remain in effect
only so long as the notes held by the holder are "registrable securities"
within the meaning of the registration rights agreement. The receipt of
additional interest will be the sole monetary remedy available to a holder if
we fail to meet these obligations.

                                      27


<PAGE>

Resales of the New Notes

   Based on existing interpretations of the SEC staff in several no action
letters issued to third parties, we believe that new notes issued under the
exchange for outstanding notes may be offered for resale, resold and otherwise
transferred by you without further compliance with the registration and
prospectus delivery provisions of the Securities Act if:

   . you are not our "affiliate" within the meaning of Rule 405 under the
     Securities Act of 1933;

   . those new notes are acquired in the ordinary course of your business; and

   . you do not intend to participate in a distribution of the new notes.

   The SEC, however, has not considered the exchange offer for the new notes in
the context of a no action letter, and the SEC may not make a similar
determination as in the no action letters issued to these third parties.

   If you tender in the exchange offer with the intention of participating in
any manner in a distribution of the new notes, you

   . cannot rely on such interpretations by the SEC staff; and

   . must comply with the registration and prospectus delivery requirements of
     the Securities Act of 1933 in connection with a secondary resale
     transaction and that such a secondary resale transaction must be covered
     by an effective registration statement containing the selling
     securityholder information required by Item 507 or 508, as applicable, of
     Regulation S-K.

   Unless an exemption from registration is otherwise available, any
securityholder intending to distribute new notes should be covered by an
effective registration statement under the Securities Act. This registration
statement should contain the selling securityholder's information required by
Item 507 of Regulation S-K under the Securities Act of 1933. This prospectus
may be used for an offer to resell, resale or other transfer of new notes only
as specifically described in this prospectus. Only broker-dealers that acquired
the outstanding notes as a result of market-making activities or other trading
activities may participate in the exchange offer. Each broker-dealer that
receives new notes for its own account in exchange for outstanding notes, where
such outstanding notes were acquired by such broker-dealer as a result of
market-making activities or other trading activities must acknowledge in the
letter of transmittal that it will deliver a prospectus in connection with any
resale of the new notes. Under our registration rights agreement, we are
required to allow such broker-dealers and other persons, if any, subject to
similar prospectus delivery requirements, to use this prospectus in connection
with the resale of new notes and we have agreed, for a period not to exceed 180
days following the consummation of the exchange offer, to make available a
prospectus meeting the requirements of the Securities Act to any participating
broker-dealer for use in connection with any resale of any new notes acquired
in the exchange offer. Please read the section captioned "Plan of Distribution"
for more details regarding the transfer of new notes.

   A broker-dealer that delivers a prospectus to purchasers in connection with
resales of the new notes will be subject to certain of the civil liability
provisions under the Securities Act of 1933 and will be bound by the provisions
of the registration rights agreement, including indemnification rights and
obligations.

Suspension of Resales

   If a broker-dealer participating in this exchange offer receives notice from
us of:

   . any request by the SEC or any state securities authority for amendments or
     supplements to the registration statement or prospectus or for additional
     information after the registration statement has become effective;

   . the issuance by the SEC or any state securities authority of any stop
     order suspending the effectiveness of the registration statement or the
     qualification of the new notes to be offered or sold by any participating
     broker-dealer or the initiation of proceedings for that purpose;

                                      28


<PAGE>

   . the happening of any event of the failure of any event to occur or the
     discovery of any facts which makes any statement or related prospectus
     untrue in any material respect or which causes that registration statement
     or the related prospectus to omit to state a material fact necessary in
     order to make the statements therein, in the light of the circumstances
     under which there were made, not misleading, as well as any other
     corporate developments, public filings with the SEC or similar events
     causes the registration statement not to be effective or the prospectus
     not to be usable for resales; or

   . our reasonable determination that a post-effective amendment to the
     registration statement would be appropriate,

the participating broker-dealer will suspend the sale of notes pursuant to that
prospectus until we have either;

   . amended or supplemented the prospectus to correct the misstatement or
     omission and furnished copies of the amended or supplemented prospectus to
     the holder, or participating broker-dealer, as the case may be; or

   . given notice that the sale of the notes may be resumed.

Terms of the Exchange Offer

   Subject to the terms and conditions described in this prospectus and in the
letter of transmittal, we will accept for exchange any outstanding notes
properly tendered and not withdrawn prior to 5:00 p.m. New York City time on
the expiration date. We will issue new notes in principal amount equal to the
principal amount of outstanding notes surrendered in the exchange offer.
Outstanding notes may be tendered only for new notes and only in integral
multiples of $1,000.

   The exchange offer is not conditioned upon any minimum aggregate principal
amount of outstanding notes being tendered for exchange.

   As of the date of this prospectus, $250,000,000 in aggregate principal
amount of the outstanding notes are outstanding. This prospectus and the letter
of transmittal are being sent to all registered holders of outstanding notes.
There will be no fixed record date for determining registered holders of
outstanding notes entitled to participate in the exchange offer.

   We intend to conduct the exchange offer in accordance with the provisions of
the registration rights agreement, the applicable requirements of the
Securities Act and the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and the rules and
regulations of the SEC. Outstanding notes that the holders thereof do not
tender for exchange in the exchange offer will remain outstanding and continue
to accrue interest. These outstanding notes will continue to be entitled to the
rights and benefits such holders have under the indenture relating to the notes.

   We will be deemed to have accepted for exchange properly tendered
outstanding notes when we have given oral or written notice of the acceptance
to the exchange agent and complied with the applicable provisions of the
registration rights agreement. The exchange agent will act as agent for the
tendering holders for the purposes of receiving the new notes from us.

   If you tender outstanding notes in the exchange offer, you will not be
required to pay brokerage commissions or fees or, subject to the letter of
transmittal, transfer taxes with respect to the exchange of outstanding notes.
We will pay all charges and expenses, other than certain applicable taxes
described below, in connecting with the exchange offer. It is important that
you read the section labeled "--Fees and Expenses" for more details regarding
fees and expenses incurred in the exchange offer.

   We will return any outstanding notes that we do not accept for exchange for
any reason without expense to their tendering holder as promptly as practicable
after the expiration or termination of the exchange offer.

                                      29

Expiration Date

   The exchange offer will expire at 5:00 p.m., New York City time on       ,
2002, unless, in our sole discretion, we extend it.

Extensions, Delays in Acceptance, Termination or Amendment

   We expressly reserve the right, at any time or various times, to extend the
period of time during which the exchange offer is open. We may delay acceptance
of any outstanding notes by giving oral or written notice of such extension to
their holders. During any such extensions, all outstanding notes previously
tendered will remain subject to the exchange offer, and we may accept them for
exchange.

   In order to extend the exchange offer, we will notify the exchange agent
orally or in writing of any extension. We will notify the registered holders of
outstanding notes of the extension no later than 9:00 a.m., New York City time,
on the business day after the previously scheduled expiration date.

   If any of the conditions described below under "--Conditions to the Exchange
Offer" have not been satisfied, we reserve the right, in our sole discretion

   . to delay accepting for exchange any outstanding notes,

   . to extend the exchange offer, or

   . to terminate the exchange offer,

by giving oral or written notice of such delay, extension or termination to the
exchange agent. Subject to the terms of the registration rights agreement, we
also reserve the right to amend the terms of the exchange offer in any manner.

   Any such delay in acceptance, extension, termination or amendment will be
followed as promptly as practicable by oral or written notice thereof to the
registered holders of outstanding notes. If we amend the exchange offer in a
manner that we determine to constitute a material change, we will promptly
disclose such amendment by means of a prospectus supplement. The supplement
will be distributed to the registered holders of the outstanding notes.
Depending upon the significance of the amendment and the manner of disclosure
to the registered holders, we may extend the exchange offer.

Conditions to the Exchange Offer

   We will not be required to accept for exchange, or exchange any new notes
for, any outstanding notes if the exchange offer, or the making of any exchange
by a holder of outstanding notes, would violate applicable law or any
applicable interpretation of the staff of the SEC. Similarly, we may terminate
the exchange offer as provided in this prospectus before accepting outstanding
notes for exchange in the event of such a potential violation.

   In addition, we will not be obligated to accept for exchange the outstanding
notes of any holder that has not made to us the representations described under
"--Purpose and Effect of the Exchange Offer," "--Procedures for Tendering" and
"Plan of Distribution" and such other representations as may be reasonably
necessary under applicable SEC rules, regulations or interpretations to allow
us to use an appropriate form to register the new notes under the Securities
Act.

   We expressly reserve the right to amend or terminate the exchange offer, and
to reject for exchange any outstanding notes not previously accepted for
exchange, upon the occurrence of any of the conditions to the exchange offer
specified above. We will give oral or written notice of any extension,
amendment, non-acceptance or termination to the holders of the outstanding
notes as promptly as practicable.

                                      30


<PAGE>

   These conditions are for our sole benefit, and we may assert them or waive
them in whole or in part at any time or at various times in our sole
discretion. If we fail at any time to exercise any of these rights, this
failure will not mean that we have waived our rights. Each such right will be
deemed an ongoing right that we may assert at any time or at various times.

   In addition, we will not accept for exchange any outstanding notes tendered,
and will not issue new notes in exchange for any such outstanding notes, if at
such time any stop order has been threatened or is in effect with respect to
the registration statement of which this prospectus constitutes a part or the
qualification of the indenture relating to the notes under the Trust Indenture
Act of 1939.

Procedures for Tendering

How to Tender Generally

   Only a holder of outstanding notes may tender such outstanding notes in the
exchange offer. To tender in the exchange offer, a holder must:

   . complete, sign and date the letter of transmittal, or a facsimile of the
     letter of transmittal;

   . have the signature on the letter of transmittal guaranteed; and

   . mail or deliver such letter of transmittal or facsimile to the exchange
     agent prior to 5:00 p.m. New York City time on the expiration date; or

   . comply with the automated tender offer program procedures of The
     Depository Trust Company, or DTC, described below.

   In addition, either:

   . the exchange agent must receive outstanding notes along with the letter of
     transmittal;

   . the exchange agent must receive, prior to 5:00 p.m. New York City time on
     the expiration date, a timely confirmation of book-entry transfer of such
     outstanding notes into the exchange agent's account at DTC according to
     the procedure for book-entry transfer described below or a properly
     transmitted agent's message; or

   . the holder must comply with the guaranteed delivery procedures described
     below.

   To be tendered effectively, the exchange agent must receive any physical
delivery of the letter of transmittal and other required documents at its
address indicated on the cover page of the letter of transmittal. The exchange
agent must receive such documents prior to 5:00 p.m. New York City time on the
expiration date.

   The tender by a holder that is not withdrawn prior to 5:00 p.m. New York
City time on the expiration date will constitute an agreement between the
holder and us in accordance with the terms and subject to the conditions
described in this prospectus and in the letter of transmittal.

   THE METHOD OF DELIVERY OF OUTSTANDING NOTES, THE LETTER OF TRANSMITTAL AND
ALL OTHER REQUIRED DOCUMENTS TO THE EXCHANGE AGENT IS AT YOUR ELECTION AND
RISK. RATHER THAN MAIL THESE ITEMS, WE RECOMMEND THAT YOU USE AN OVERNIGHT OR
HAND DELIVERY SERVICE. IN ALL CASES, YOU SHOULD ALLOW SUFFICIENT TIME TO ASSURE
DELIVERY TO THE EXCHANGE AGENT BEFORE 5:00 P.M. NEW YORK CITY TIME ON THE
EXPIRATION DATE. YOU SHOULD NOT SEND THE LETTER OF TRANSMITTAL OR OUTSTANDING
NOTES TO US. YOU MAY REQUEST YOUR BROKERS, DEALERS, COMMERCIAL BANKS, TRUST
COMPANIES OR OTHER NOMINEES TO EFFECT THE ABOVE TRANSACTIONS FOR YOU.

                                      31


<PAGE>

How to Tender if You Are a Beneficial Owner

   If you beneficially own outstanding notes that are registered in the name of
a broker, dealer, commercial bank, trust company or other nominee and you wish
to tender those notes, you should contact the registered holder promptly and
instruct it to tender on your behalf. If you are a beneficial owner and wish to
tender on your own behalf, you must, prior to completing and executing the
letter of transmittal and delivering your outstanding notes, either:

   . make appropriate arrangements to register ownership of the outstanding
     notes in your name; or

   . obtain a properly completed bond power from the registered holder of
     outstanding notes.

   The transfer of registered ownership, if permitted under the indenture for
the notes, may take considerable time and may not be completed prior to the
expiration date.

Signatures and Signature Guarantees

   You must have signatures on a letter of transmittal or a notice of
withdrawal (as described below) guaranteed by a member firm of a registered
national securities exchange or of the National Association of Securities
Dealers, Inc., a commercial bank or trust company having an office or
correspondent in the United States, or an "eligible guarantor institution"
within the meaning of Rule 17Ad-15 under the Securities Exchange Act. In
addition, such entity must be a member of one of the recognized signature
guarantee programs identified in the letter of transmittal.

When You Need Endorsements or Bond Powers

   If the letter of transmittal is signed by a person other than the registered
holder of any outstanding notes, the outstanding notes must be endorsed or
accompanied by a properly completed bond power. The endorsement or bond power,
as applicable, must be signed by the registered holder as the registered
holder's name appears on the outstanding notes. A member firm of a registered
national securities exchange or of the National Association of Securities
Dealers, Inc., a commercial bank or trust company having an office or
correspondent in the United States, or an eligible guarantor institution must
guarantee the signature on the endorsement or bond power, as applicable.

   If the letter of transmittal or any outstanding notes or bond powers are
signed by trustees, executors, administrators, guardians, attorneys-in-fact,
officers of corporations or others acting in a fiduciary or representative
capacity, those persons should so indicate when signing. Unless waived by us,
they should also submit evidence satisfactory to us of their authority to
deliver the letter of transmittal.

Tendering Through DTC's Automated Tender Offer Program

   The exchange agent and DTC have confirmed that any financial institution
that is a participant in DTC's system may use DTC's automated tender offer
program to tender. Participants in the program may, instead of physically
completing and signing the letter of transmittal and delivering it to the
exchange agent, transmit their acceptance of the exchange offer electronically.
They may do so by causing DTC to transfer the outstanding notes to the exchange
agent in accordance with its procedures for transfer. DTC will then send an
agent's message to the exchange agent.

   The term "agent's message" means a message transmitted by DTC, received by
the exchange agent and forming part of the book-entry confirmation, to the
effect that:

   . DTC has received an express acknowledgment from a participant in its
     automated tender offer program that is tendering outstanding notes that
     are the subject of such book-entry confirmation;

                                      32


<PAGE>

   . such participant has received and agrees to be bound by the terms of the
     letter of transmittal or, in the case of an agent's message relating to
     guaranteed delivery, that such participant has received and agrees to be
     bound by the applicable notice of guaranteed delivery; and

   . the agreement may be enforced against such participant.

Determinations Under the Exchange Offer

   We will determine in our sole discretion all questions as to the validity,
form, eligibility, time of receipt, acceptance of tendered outstanding notes
and withdrawal of tendered outstanding notes. Our determination will be final
and binding. We reserve the absolute right to reject any outstanding notes not
properly tendered or any outstanding notes our acceptance of which would, in
the opinion of our counsel, be unlawful. We also reserve the right to waive any
defect, irregularities or conditions of tender as to particular outstanding
notes. Our interpretation of the terms and conditions of the exchange offer,
including the instructions in the letter of transmittal, will be final and
binding on all parties. Unless waived, all defects or irregularities in
connection with tenders of outstanding notes must be cured within such time as
we shall determine. Although we intend to notify holders of defects or
irregularities with respect to tenders of outstanding notes, neither we, the
exchange agent nor any other person will incur any liability for failure to
give such notification. Tenders of outstanding notes will not be deemed made
until such defects or irregularities have been cured or waived. Any outstanding
notes received by the exchange agent that are not properly tendered and as to
which the defects or irregularities have not been cured or waived will be
returned to the tendering holder, unless otherwise provided in the letter of
transmittal, as soon as practicable following the expiration date.

When We Will Issue New Notes

   In all cases, we will issue new notes for outstanding notes that we have
accepted for exchange in the exchange offer only after the exchange agent
timely receives:

   . outstanding notes or a timely book-entry confirmation of such outstanding
     notes into the exchange agent's account at DTC; and

   . a properly completed and duly executed letter of transmittal and all other
     required documents or a properly transmitted agent's message.

Return of Outstanding Notes Not Accepted or Exchanged

   If we do not accept any tendered outstanding notes for exchange or if
outstanding notes are submitted for a greater principal amount than the holder
desires to exchange, the unaccepted or non-exchanged outstanding notes will be
returned without expense to their tendering holder. In the case of outstanding
notes tendered by book-entry transfer in the exchange agent's account at DTC
according to the procedures described below, such non-exchanged outstanding
notes will be credited to an account maintained with DTC. These actions will
occur as promptly as practicable after the expiration or termination of the
exchange offer.

Your Representations to Us

   By signing or agreeing to be bound by the letter of transmittal, you will
represent to us that, among other things:

   . any new notes that you receive will be acquired in the ordinary course of
     your business;

   . you have no arrangement or understanding with any person or entity to
     participate in the distribution of the new notes;

   . you are not engaged in and do not intend to engage in the distribution of
     the new notes;

                                      33


<PAGE>

   . if you are a broker-dealer that will receive new notes for your own
     account in exchange for outstanding notes, you acquired those notes as a
     result of market-making activities or other trading activities and you
     will deliver a prospectus, as required by law, in connection with any
     resale of such new notes; and

   . you are not our "affiliate," as defined in Rule 405 of the Securities Act.

Book-Entry Transfer

   The exchange agent will establish an account with respect to the outstanding
notes at DTC for purposes of the exchange offer promptly after the date of this
prospectus. Any financial institution participating in DTC's system may make
book-entry delivery of outstanding notes by causing DTC to transfer such
outstanding notes into the exchange agent's account at DTC in accordance with
DTC's procedures for transfer. Holders of outstanding notes who are unable to
deliver confirmation of the book-entry tender of their outstanding notes into
the exchange agent's account at DTC or all other documents required by the
letter of transmittal to the exchange agent on or prior to 5:00 p.m. New York
City time on the expiration date must tender their outstanding notes according
to the guaranteed delivery procedures described below.

Guaranteed Delivery Procedures

   If you wish to tender your outstanding notes but your outstanding notes are
not immediately available or you cannot deliver your outstanding notes, the
letter of transmittal or any other required documents to the exchange agent or
comply with the applicable procedures under DTC's automated tender offer
program prior to the expiration date, you may tender if:

   . the tender is made through a member firm of a registered national
     securities exchange or of the National Association of Securities Dealers,
     Inc., a commercial bank or trust company having an office or correspondent
     in the United States, or an eligible guarantor institution,

   . prior to the expiration date, the exchange agent receives from such member
     firm of a registered national securities exchange or of the National
     Association of Securities Dealers, Inc., commercial bank or trust company
     having a office or correspondent in the United States, or eligible
     guarantor institution either a properly completed and duly executed notice
     of guaranteed delivery by facsimile transmission, mail or hand delivery or
     a properly transmitted agent's message and notice of guaranteed delivery:

     . setting forth your name and address, the registered number(s) of your
       outstanding notes and the principal amount of outstanding notes tendered,

     . stating that the tender is being made thereby, and

     . guaranteeing that, within three (3) New York Stock Exchange ("NYSE")
       trading days after the expiration date, the letter of transmittal or
       facsimile thereof, together with the outstanding notes or a book-entry
       confirmation, and any other documents required by the letter of
       transmittal will be deposited by the eligible guarantor institution with
       the exchange agent, and

     . the exchange agent receives such properly completed and executed letter
       of transmittal or facsimile thereof, as well as all tendered outstanding
       notes in proper form for transfer or a book-entry confirmation, and all
       other documents required by the letter of transmittal, within three (3)
       NYSE trading days after the expiration date.

   Upon request to the exchange agent, a notice of guaranteed delivery will be
sent you if you wish to tender your outstanding notes according to the
guaranteed delivery procedures described above.

Withdrawal of Tenders

   Except as otherwise provided in this prospectus, you may withdraw your
tender at any time prior to 5:00 p.m. New York City time on the expiration date.

                                      34


<PAGE>

   For a withdrawal to be effective:

   . the exchange agent must receive a written notice of withdrawal at the
     address indicated on the cover page of the letter of transmittal or

   . you must comply with the appropriate procedures of DTC's automated tender
     offer program system.

   Any notice of withdrawal must:

   . specify the name of the person who tendered the outstanding notes to be
     withdrawn, and

   . identify the outstanding notes to be withdrawn, including the principal
     amount of such outstanding notes.

   If outstanding notes have been tendered under the procedure for book-entry
transfer described above, any notice of withdrawal must specify the name and
number of the account at DTC to be credited with withdrawn outstanding notes
and otherwise comply with the procedures of DTC.

   We will determine all questions as to the validity, form, eligibility and
time of receipt of notice of withdrawal. Our determination shall be final and
binding on all parties. We will deem any outstanding notes so withdrawn not to
have been validly tendered for exchange for purposes of the exchange offer.

   Any outstanding notes that have been tendered for exchange but that are not
exchanged for any reason will be returned to their holder without cost to the
holder. In the case of outstanding notes tendered by book-entry transfer into
the exchange agent's account at DTC according to the procedures described
above, such outstanding notes will be credited to an account maintained with
DTC for the outstanding notes. This return or crediting will take place as soon
as practicable after withdrawal, rejection of tender or termination of the
exchange offer. You may retender properly withdrawn outstanding notes by
following one of the procedures described under "--Procedures for Tendering"
above at any time on or prior to the expiration date.

Fees and Expenses

   We, together with the guarantors, will bear the expenses of soliciting
tenders. The principal solicitation is being made by mail; however, we may make
additional solicitation by telegraph, telephone or in person by our officers
and regular employees and those of our affiliates.

   We have not retained any dealer-manager in connection with the exchange
offer and will not make any payments to broker-dealers or others soliciting
acceptances of the exchange offer. We will, however, pay the exchange agent
reasonable and customary fees for its services and reimburse it for its related
reasonable out-of-pocket expenses.

   We will pay the cash expenses to be incurred in connection with the exchange
offer. They include:

   . SEC registration fees;

   . fees and expenses of the exchange agent and trustee;

   . accounting and legal fees and printing costs; and

   . related fees and expenses.

Transfer Taxes

   We will pay all transfer taxes, if any, applicable to the exchange of
outstanding notes under the exchange offer. The tendering holder, however, will
be required to pay any transfer taxes, whether imposed on the registered holder
or any other person, if:

   . certificates representing outstanding notes for principal amounts not
     tendered or accepted for exchange are to be delivered to, or are to be
     issued in the name of, any person other than the registered holder of
     outstanding notes tendered;

                                      35


<PAGE>

   . tendered outstanding notes are registered in the name of any person other
     than the person signing the letter of transmittal; or

   . a transfer tax is imposed for any reason other than the exchange of
     outstanding notes in the exchange offer.

   If satisfactory evidence of payment of any transfer taxes payable by a note
holder is not submitted with the letter of transmittal, the amount of such
transfer taxes will be billed directly to that tendering holder.

Consequences of Failure to Exchange

   If you do not exchange new notes for your outstanding notes under the
exchange offer, you will remain subject to the existing restrictions on
transfer of the outstanding notes. In general, you may not offer or sell the
outstanding notes unless they are registered under the Securities Act, or
unless the offer or sale is exempt from the registration under the Securities
Act and applicable state securities laws. Except as required by the
registration rights agreement, we do not intend to register resales of the
outstanding notes under the Securities Act.

Accounting Treatment

   We will record the new notes in our accounting records at the same carrying
value as the outstanding notes. This carrying value is the aggregate principal
amount of the outstanding notes less any bond discount, as reflected in our
accounting records on the date of exchange. Accordingly, we will not recognize
any gain or loss for accounting purposes in connection with the exchange offer.

Other

   Participation in the exchange offer is voluntary, and you should carefully
consider whether to accept. You are urged to consult your financial and tax
advisors in making your own decision on what action to take.

   We may in the future seek to acquire untendered outstanding notes in open
market or privately negotiated transactions, through subsequent exchange offers
or otherwise. We have no present plans to acquire any outstanding notes that
are not tendered in the exchange offer or to file a registration statement to
permit resales of any untendered outstanding notes.

                                      36


<PAGE>

                                USE OF PROCEEDS

   The exchange offer is intended to satisfy our obligations under the
registration rights agreement. We will not receive any proceeds from the
issuance of the new notes in the exchange offer. In consideration for issuing
the new notes as contemplated by this prospectus, we will receive outstanding
notes in a like principal amount. The form and terms of the new notes are
identical in all respects to the form and terms of the outstanding notes,
except the new notes will be registered under the Securities Act of 1933 and
will not contain restrictions on transfer, registration rights or provisions
for additional interest. Outstanding notes surrendered in exchange for the new
notes will be retired and cancelled and will not be reissued. Accordingly, the
issuance of the new notes will not result in any change in outstanding
indebtedness.

                      RATIO OF EARNINGS TO FIXED CHARGES

   For purposes of calculating the ratio of earnings to fixed charges, earnings
represent income before income tax expense before deducting fixed charges.
Fixed charges include interest and one-third of rental expense which is the
portion deemed to be interest.

        SELECTED HISTORICAL AND PRO FORMA FINANCIAL AND OPERATING DATA

   On February 8, 2002, our parent, Sunoco Logistics Partners L.P., completed
its initial public offering and related transactions whereby we became the
successor to a substantial portion of the wholly owned logistics operations of
Sunoco, Inc. and its subsidiaries. The following table shows selected
historical financial and operating data of Sunoco Logistics Partners L.P., in
each case for the periods and as of the dates indicated. The selected
historical financial data for Sunoco Logistics Partners L.P. for 1998, 1999,
2000 and 2001 are derived from the audited combined financial statements of
Sunoco Logistics Partners L.P., which reflect the historical cost-basis amounts
of Sunoco Logistics (Predecessor), our predecessor. The selected historical
financial data for Sunoco Logistics Partners L.P. for 1997 are derived from the
unaudited combined financial statements of our predecessor.

   The pro forma financial statements of Sunoco Logistics Partners L.P. give
pro forma effect to:

   . the contribution of certain assets and liabilities of Sunoco Logistics
     (Predecessor) to Sunoco Logistics Partners L.P.;

   . the issuance by us of the notes;

   . the establishment of the revolving credit facility;

   . the completion of the initial public offering by our parent of 5,750,000
     of its common units representing limited partner interests; and

   . the execution of the pipelines and terminals storage and throughput
     agreement with Sunoco R&M and the omnibus agreement with Sunoco R&M and
     Sunoco, Inc.

   The selected pro forma financial data presented below as of and for the year
ended December 31, 2001 are derived from the master partnership's unaudited pro
forma financial statements. The pro forma balance sheet assumes the initial
public offering, the notes offering and related transactions occurred as of
December 31, 2001, and the pro forma statement of income assumes the initial
public offering, the notes offering and related transactions occurred on
January 1, 2001. A more complete explanation of the pro forma data can be found
in the master partnership's Unaudited Pro Forma Financial Statements included
elsewhere herein.

   We define EBITDA as operating income plus depreciation and amortization.
EBITDA provides additional information for evaluating our ability to service
our debt obligations and is presented solely as a supplemental measure. You
should not consider EBITDA as an alternative to net income, income before
income taxes, cash flows from operations, or any other measure of financial
performance presented in accordance with accounting principles generally
accepted in the United States. Our EBITDA may not be comparable to EBITDA or
similarly titled measures of other entities as other entities may not calculate
EBITDA in the same manner as we do.

   For the periods presented, Sunoco R&M was the primary or exclusive user of
our refined product terminals, our Fort Mifflin Terminal Complex, and our
Marcus Hook Tank Farm. Historically, most of the terminalling and throughput
services provided by Sunoco Logistics (Predecessor) for Sunoco R&M's refining
and marketing operations were at fees that enabled us to recover our costs, but
not to generate any operating income. Accordingly, historical EBITDA for those
assets was equal to their depreciation and amortization.

   Maintenance capital expenditures are capital expenditures made to replace
partially or fully depreciated assets in order to maintain the existing
operating capacity of our assets and to extend their useful lives. Expansion
capital expenditures are capital expenditures made to expand the existing
operating capacity of our assets, whether through construction or acquisition.
We treat repair and maintenance expenditures that do not extend the useful life
of existing assets as operating expenses as we incur them. The maintenance
capital expenditures for the periods presented include several one-time
projects to upgrade our technology, increase reliability, and lower our cost
structure.

   Throughput is the total number of barrels per day transported on a pipeline
system or through a terminal and includes barrels ultimately transported to a
delivery point on another pipeline system.

  MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF
                                  OPERATIONS

   The following discussion of the financial condition and results of
operations of Sunoco Logistics Partners L.P. should be read in conjunction with
the historical combined financial statements of Sunoco Logistics Partners L.P.
and pro forma financial statements included elsewhere in this prospectus. Among
other things, those financial statements include more detailed information
regarding the basis of presentation for the following information.

Introduction

   Sunoco Logistics Partners Operations L.P. is a Delaware limited partnership
formed on December 6, 2001 as the operating subsidiary of Sunoco Logistics
Partners L.P. to acquire, own, and operate, through our wholly owned
subsidiaries, refined product pipelines, terminalling and storage assets, crude
oil pipelines, and crude oil acquisition and marketing assets located in the
Northeast and Midwest United States. Most of these assets support Sunoco R&M, a
wholly owned refining and marketing subsidiary of Sunoco, Inc.

General

   We conduct business through three segments: our Eastern Pipeline System, our
Terminal Facilities, and our Western Pipeline System. Our Eastern Pipeline
System primarily transports refined products in the Northeast and Midwest
United States largely for three of Sunoco R&M's refineries and transports crude
oil in Ohio and Michigan. This system also includes our interrefinery pipeline
between Sunoco R&M's Marcus Hook and Philadelphia refineries and our 9.4%
ownership interest in Explorer Pipeline Company, a joint venture that owns a
refined product pipeline located in the Midwest United States. Our Terminal
Facilities business includes our network of 32 refined product terminals in the
Northeast and Midwest United States that distribute products primarily to
Sunoco R&M's retail outlets, our Nederland marine crude oil terminal on the
Texas Gulf Coast, and a LPG storage facility in the Midwest. Our Terminal
Facilities business also owns and operates refinery related assets, including
one inland and two marine crude oil terminals and related pipelines that supply
all of the crude oil processed by Sunoco R&M's Philadelphia refinery and a
refined product storage terminal used by Sunoco R&M's Marcus Hook refinery. Our
Western Pipeline System owns and operates crude oil trunk and gathering
pipelines and purchases and markets crude oil primarily in Oklahoma and Texas
for Sunoco R&M's Tulsa, Oklahoma and Toledo, Ohio refineries and for other
customers.

  Eastern Pipeline System

   We generate revenue by charging shippers tariffs for transporting refined
products and crude oil through our pipelines. The amount of revenue we generate
depends on the level of these tariffs and the throughput in our pipelines. When
transporting barrels, we charge a tariff based on the point of origin and the
ultimate destination, even if the barrel moves through more than one pipeline
segment to reach its destination. For example, on the Philadelphia,
Pennsylvania to Buffalo, New York pipeline segment, we have separate tariffs
depending on whether the ultimate destination from Philadelphia is Rochester,
New York or Buffalo, New York.

   The tariffs for our interstate common carrier pipelines are regulated by the
FERC. The rate-making methodology for these pipelines is price indexing. This
methodology provides for increases in tariff rates based upon changes in the
producer price index. Competition, however, may constrain the tariffs we
charge. We also lease to Sunoco R&M, for a fixed amount escalating annually at
1.67%, three pipelines between Sunoco R&M's Marcus Hook and Philadelphia
refineries, as well as a pipeline from our Paulsboro terminal to the
Philadelphia International Airport for the delivery of jet fuel.

   The crude oil and refined product throughput in our pipelines is directly
affected by the level of supply and demand for crude oil and refined products
in the markets served directly or indirectly by our pipelines. Demand for
gasoline in most markets peaks during the summer driving season, which extends
from April to September,

                                      41


<PAGE>

and declines during the fall and winter months. Demand for heating oil and
other distillate fuels tends to peak during the winter heating season, and
declines during the spring and summer months. The supply of crude oil to our
Eastern Pipeline System depends upon the level of crude oil production in
Canada, which has increased in recent years. Demand for crude oil transported
to refineries for processing is driven by refining margins (the price of
refined products compared to the price of crude oil and refining costs),
unscheduled downtime at refineries and the amount of turnaround activity, when
refiners shut down selected portions of the refinery for scheduled maintenance.

   The operating income generated by our Eastern Pipeline System depends not
only on the volumes transported on the pipelines and the level of the tariff
charged, but also on the fixed costs and, to a much lesser extent, the variable
costs of operating the pipelines. Fixed costs are typically related to
maintenance, insurance, control rooms, telecommunications, pipeline field and
support personnel and depreciation. Variable costs, such as fuel and power
costs to run pump stations along the pipelines, fluctuate with throughput.

  Terminal Facilities

   Historically, most of the terminalling and throughput services we have
provided for Sunoco R&M were at fees that enabled us to recover our costs but
not generate operating income. Upon the closing of the master partnership's
initial public offering in February 2002, we entered into a pipelines and
terminals storage and throughput agreement with Sunoco R&M under which we
charge Sunoco R&M fees comparable to those charged in arm's-length, third-party
transactions. Under this agreement, Sunoco R&M pays us a minimum level of
revenues for terminalling refined products and crude oil and agrees to certain
minimum throughputs at our Inkster Terminal, Fort Mifflin Terminal Complex, and
Marcus Hook Tank Farm. Please read "--Agreements with Sunoco R&M and Sunoco,
Inc." and "Certain Relationships and Related Transactions." Under this
agreement, operating income from terminalling and storage activities depends on
throughput and storage volume and the level of fees charged for terminalling
and storage services, as well as the fixed and variable costs of operating
these facilities.

   We generate revenue at our Nederland Terminal by charging storage and
throughput fees for crude oil and other petroleum products. The operating
income generated at this facility depends on storage and throughput volumes and
the level of fees charged for these services, as well as the fixed and variable
costs of operating the terminal. The absolute price level of crude oil and
refined products does not directly affect terminalling and storage fees,
although they are affected by the absolute levels of supply and demand for
these products.

  Western Pipeline System

   The Western Pipeline System consists of our crude oil pipelines and
gathering systems as well as our crude oil acquisition and marketing operations.

   The factors affecting the operating results of our crude oil pipelines and
gathering systems are substantially similar to the factors affecting the
operating results of our pipelines in the Eastern Pipeline System described
above. The operating results of our crude oil acquisition and marketing
operations are dependent on our ability to sell crude oil at a price in excess
of our aggregate cost. We believe gross margin, which is equal to sales and
other operating revenue less cost of products sold and operating expenses and
depreciation and amortization, is a key measure of financial performance for
the Western Pipeline System.

   Our crude oil acquisition and marketing operations generate substantial
revenues and cost of sales because they reflect the sales price and cost of the
significant volumes of crude oil we buy and sell. However, the absolute price
levels for crude oil normally do not bear a relationship to gross margin,
although these price levels significantly impact revenues and cost of products
sold. As a result, period-to-period variations in revenues and cost of sales
are not generally meaningful in analyzing the variation in gross margin for our
crude oil acquisition and marketing operations.

                                      42

   In general, we purchase crude oil at the wellhead from local producers and
in bulk at major pipeline connection and marketing points. We also enter into
transactions with third parties in which we exchange one grade of crude oil for
another grade that more nearly matches our delivery requirement or the
preferences of our customers. Bulk purchases and sales and exchange
transactions are characterized by large volumes and much smaller margins than
are sales of crude oil purchased at the wellhead. As we purchase crude oil, we
establish a margin by selling or exchanging the crude oil for physical delivery
of other crude oil to Sunoco R&M and third-party customers, such as independent
refiners or major oil companies, thereby reducing exposure to price
fluctuations. This margin is determined by the difference between the price of
crude oil at the point of purchase and the price of crude oil at the point of
sale, minus the associated costs related to acquisition and transportation.
Changes in the absolute price level for crude oil do not materially impact our
margin, as we attempt to maintain positions that are substantially balanced
between crude oil purchases and sales.

   Because we attempt to maintain balanced positions, we are able to minimize
basis risk, which occurs when crude oil is purchased based on a crude oil
specification that is different from the countervailing sales arrangement.
Specification differences include grades or types of crude oil, variability in
lease crude oil barrels produced, individual refinery demand for specific
grades of crude oil, relative market prices for the different grades of crude
oil, customer location, availability of transportation facilities, timing, and
costs (including storage) involved in delivering crude oil to the customer. Our
policy is only to purchase crude oil for which we have a market and to
structure our sales contracts so that crude oil price fluctuations do not
materially affect the margin that we receive. We do not acquire and hold any
futures contracts or other derivative products for any purpose.

   We operate our crude oil acquisition and marketing activities differently as
market conditions change. During periods when there is a higher demand than
supply of crude oil in the near term, the market is in backwardation, meaning
that the price of crude oil in a given month exceeds the price of crude oil for
delivery in subsequent months. A backwardated market has a positive impact on
marketing margins because crude oil marketers can continue to purchase crude
oil from producers at a fixed premium to posted prices while selling crude oil
at a higher premium to such prices. In backwardated markets, we purchase crude
oil and contract for its sale as soon as possible. When the demand for crude
oil is weak, the market for crude oil is often in contango, meaning that the
price of crude oil in a given month is less than the price of crude oil for
delivery in subsequent months. In a contango market, marketing margins are
adversely impacted, as crude oil marketers are unable to capture the premium to
posted prices described above. However, this unfavorable market condition can
be mitigated by storing crude oil because storage owners at major trading
locations can simultaneously purchase production at current prices for storage
and sell at higher prices for future delivery. As a result, in a contango
market we will purchase crude oil and contract for its delivery in future
months to capture the price difference.

Agreements with Sunoco R&M and Sunoco, Inc.

   Upon the closing of the master partnership's initial public offering, we
entered into the following agreements:

  Pipelines and Terminals Storage and Throughput Agreement

   Under this agreement, Sunoco R&M is paying us fees generally comparable to
those charged by third parties to:

  .  transport on our refined product pipelines or throughput in our 32 inland
     refined product terminals an amount of refined products that will produce
     at least $75.0 million of revenue in the first year, escalating at 1.67%
     per year for the next four years. In addition, Sunoco R&M will pay us to
     transport on our refined product pipelines an amount of refined products
     that will produce at least $54.3 million of revenue in the sixth year and
     at least $55.2 million of revenue in the seventh year. Sunoco R&M will pay
     the published tariffs on the pipelines and contractually agreed upon fees
     at the terminals. On a pro forma basis, we would have received $84.3
     million in revenue from Sunoco R&M for the use of these pipelines and
     terminals during the year ended December 31, 2001;

                                      43

  .  receive and deliver at least 130,000 bpd of refined products per year at
     our Marcus Hook Tank Farm for five years. In the first year, we will
     receive a fee of $0.1627 per barrel for the first 130,000 bpd and $0.0813
     per barrel for volumes in excess of 130,000 bpd. These fees will escalate
     at the rate of 1.67% per year. During the year ended December 31, 2001,
     Sunoco R&M's throughput at the Marcus Hook Tank Farm averaged 138,490 bpd;

  .  store 975,734 barrels of LPG per year at our Inkster Terminal, which
     represents all of our LPG storage capacity at this facility. In the first
     year of this seven-year agreement, we will receive a fee of $2.04 per
     barrel of committed storage, a fee of $0.204 per barrel for receipts
     greater than 975,734 barrels per year and a fee of $0.204 per barrel for
     deliveries greater than 975,734 barrels per year. These fees will escalate
     at the rate of 1.875% per year. For the past five years, Sunoco R&M has
     used the full capacity of our Inkster terminal;

  .  receive and deliver at least 290,000 bpd of crude oil or refined products
     per year at our Fort Mifflin Terminal Complex for seven years. In the
     first year, we will receive a fee of $0.1627 per barrel for the first
     180,000 bpd and $0.0813 per barrel for volumes in excess of 180,000 bpd.
     These fees will escalate at the rate of 1.67% per year. Sunoco R&M's
     thoughput at the Fort Mifflin Terminal Complex averaged 318,545 bpd during
     the year ended December 31, 2001; and

  .  transport or cause to be transported an aggregate of at least 140,000 bpd
     of crude oil per year on our Marysville to Toledo, Nederland to Longview,
     Cushing to Tulsa, Barnsdall to Tulsa, and Bad Creek to Tulsa crude oil
     pipelines at the published tariffs for a term of seven years. During the
     year ended December 31, 2001, we and Sunoco R&M transported 166,537 bpd on
     these pipelines.

   If Sunoco R&M fails to meet its minimum obligations pursuant to the contract
terms set forth above, it will be required to pay us in cash the amount of any
shortfall, which may be applied as a credit in the following year after Sunoco
R&M's minimum obligations are met.

   Sunoco R&M's obligations under this agreement may be permanently reduced or
suspended if Sunoco R&M: (1) shuts down or reconfigures one of its refineries
(other than planned maintenance turnarounds), or is prohibited from using MTBE
in the gasoline it produces; and (2) reasonably believes in good faith that
such event will jeopardize its ability to satisfy these obligations.

   From time to time, Sunoco, Inc. may be presented with opportunities by third
parties with respect to its refinery assets. These opportunities may include
offers to purchase and joint venture propositions. Sunoco, Inc. is also
continually considering changes to its refineries. Those changes may involve
new facilities, reduction in certain operations or modifications of facilities
or operations. Changes may be considered to meet market demands, to satisfy
regulatory requirements or environmental and safety objectives, to improve
operational efficiency or for other reasons. Sunoco, Inc. has advised us that
although it continually considers the types of matters referred to above, it is
not currently proceeding with any transaction or plan that it believes is
likely to result in any reconfigurations or other operational changes in any of
its refineries served by our assets that would have a material effect on Sunoco
R&M's business relationship with us. Further, Sunoco, Inc. has also advised us
that it is not considering a shutdown of any of its refineries served by our
assets. Sunoco, Inc. is, however, actively managing its assets and operations,
and, therefore, changes of some nature, possibly material to its business
relationship with us, are likely to occur at some point in the future.

   To the extent Sunoco R&M does not extend or renew the pipelines and
terminals storage and throughput agreement, our financial condition and results
of operations may be adversely affected. Our assets were constructed or
purchased to service Sunoco R&M's refining and marketing supply chain and are
well-situated to suit Sunoco R&M's needs. As a result, we would expect that
even if this agreement is not renewed, Sunoco R&M would continue to use our
pipelines and terminals. However, we cannot assure you that Sunoco R&M will
continue to use our facilities or that we will be able to generate additional
revenues from third parties. Please see "Risk Factors--Risks Inherent in Our
Business."

  Omnibus Agreement

   Historically, Sunoco, Inc. has allocated a portion of its general and
administrative expenses to its pipeline, terminalling, and storage operations
to cover costs of centralized corporate functions such as legal, accounting,
treasury, engineering, information technology, and insurance. The allocation
was $9.0 million, $10.1 million, and $10.8 million for the years ended December
31, 1999, 2000 and 2001.

   Under an omnibus agreement with Sunoco, Inc. we are paying Sunoco, Inc. or
our master partnership's general partner an annual administrative fee,
initially in the amount of $8.0 million, for the provision by Sunoco, Inc. or
its affiliates of various general and administrative services for our benefit
for three years following the master partnership's initial public offering. The
$8.0 million fee includes expenses incurred by Sunoco, Inc. and its affiliates
to perform centralized corporate functions, such as legal, accounting,
treasury, engineering, information technology, insurance, and other corporate
services, including the administration of employee benefit plans. This fee does
not include salaries of pipeline and terminal personnel or other employees of
the master partnership's general partner, including senior executives, or the
cost of their employee benefits, such as 401(k), pension, and health insurance
benefits. We have no employees. We will also reimburse Sunoco, Inc. and its
affiliates for direct expenses they incur on our behalf. We are currently
incurring additional general and administrative costs, including costs for tax
return preparation, annual and quarterly reports to unitholders, investor
relations, registrar and transfer agent fees, and other costs related to
operating as a separate publicly held entity. We estimate that these
incremental costs will be approximately $4.0 million per year, including
incremental insurance costs.

   The omnibus agreement also requires Sunoco R&M to: reimburse us for any
operating expenses and capital expenditures in excess of $8.0 million per year
in each year from 2002 to 2006 that are made to comply with the DOT's pipeline
integrity management rule, subject to a maximum aggregate reimbursement of
$15.0 million over the five-year period; complete, at its expense, certain tank
maintenance and inspection projects currently in progress or expected to be
completed at the Darby Creek Tank Farm within one year; and reimburse us for up
to $10.0 million of expenditures required at the Marcus Hook Tank Farm and the
Darby Creek Tank Farm to maintain compliance with existing industry standards
and regulatory requirements.

   The omnibus agreement also provides that Sunoco, Inc. will indemnify us for
certain environmental, toxic tort and other liabilities. Please read
"--Environmental Matters," "Business--Environmental Regulation,"
"Business--Environmental Remediation," and "Certain Relationships and Related
Transactions" for a more complete description of these provisions.

  Interrefinery Lease Agreement

   Under a 20-year lease agreement, Sunoco R&M will pay us $5.1 million in the
first year to lease the 58 miles of interrefinery pipelines between Sunoco
R&M's Philadelphia and Marcus Hook refineries, escalating at 1.67% per year for
the next 19 years. On a pro forma basis, Sunoco R&M would have paid us $5.0
million for the use of these pipelines during the year ended December 31, 2001.

  Crude Oil Purchase Agreement

   Sunoco R&M will purchase from us at market-based rates particular grades of
crude oil that our crude oil acquisition and marketing business purchases for
delivery to pipelines in: Longview, Trent, Tye, and Colorado City, Texas;
Haynesville, Louisiana; Marysville and Lewiston, Michigan; and Tulsa, Oklahoma.
At Marysville and Lewiston, Michigan, we exchange Michigan sweet and Michigan
sour crude oil we own for domestic sweet crude oil supplied by Sunoco R&M at
market-based rates. These agreements, which will have an initial term of two
months, will automatically renew on a monthly basis unless terminated by either
party on 30 days' written notice. Sunoco R&M has indicated that it has no
current intention to terminate these agreements. During the year ended December
31, 2001, Sunoco R&M purchased 70,461 bpd of crude oil from us in these areas.

                                      45


<PAGE>

  License Agreement

   We have granted to Sunoco, Inc. and certain of its affiliates, including our
master partnership's general partner, a license to our intellectual property so
that the master partnership's general partner can manage our operations and
create intellectual property using our intellectual property. Our master
partnership's general partner will also assign to us the new intellectual
property it creates in operating our business. Our master partnership's general
partner also licensed to us certain of its own intellectual property for use in
the conduct of our business and we have licensed to our master partnership's
general partner certain intellectual property for use in the conduct of its
business. The license agreement also grants to us a license to use the
trademarks, trade names, and service marks of Sunoco, Inc. in the conduct of
our business.

  Treasury Services Agreement

   The master partnership entered into a treasury services agreement with
Sunoco, Inc. pursuant to which, among other things, we are participating in
Sunoco, Inc.'s centralized cash management program. Under this program, all of
our cash receipts and cash disbursements are processed, together with those of
Sunoco, Inc. and its other subsidiaries, through Sunoco, Inc.'s cash accounts
with a corresponding credit or charge to an intercompany account. The
intercompany balance will be settled periodically, but no less frequently than
at the end of each month. Amounts due from Sunoco, Inc. and its subsidiaries
earn interest at a rate equal to the average rate of our third-party money
market investments, while amounts due to Sunoco, Inc. and its subsidiaries bear
interest at a rate equal to the interest rate provided in our revolving credit
facility.

Year Ended December 31, 2001 versus Year Ended December 31, 2000

  Analysis of Combined Statements of Income

   Sales and other operating revenue for 2001 were $1,613.0 million as compared
to $1,808.6 million for 2000, a decrease of $195.6 million. This decrease was
primarily due to lower crude oil sales revenue resulting from a decline in
crude oil prices. During 2001, the average price of West Texas Intermediate
("WTI") crude oil, at Cushing, Oklahoma, the benchmark crude oil in the United
States, dropped to $25.92 per barrel from $30.20 per barrel.

   Other income was $4.8 million for 2001 versus $5.6 million for 2000. This
$0.8 million decrease was primarily due to lower dividend income from an
insurance consortium in which Sunoco, Inc. participates and the absence of our
allocated portion of a gain recognized in 2000 attributable to the receipt of
stock by Sunoco, Inc. in connection with an insurance company demutualization.
We allocated these insurance-related gains to each of our business segments.
Partially offsetting these lower gains was a $0.5 million increase in Explorer
equity income to $4.3 million for 2001 from $3.8 million for 2000. Cash
dividends paid to us by Explorer approximate the equity income earned by us
from that investment. The increase in Explorer equity income was due to the
absence of the adverse impact of a refined product spill that occurred in March
2000.

   Total cost of products sold and operating expenses decreased $196.3 million
to $1,503.2 million for 2001 from $1,699.5 million in 2000. This decrease was
primarily due to the decline in crude oil prices described above.

   Approximately 90% of our sales and other operating revenue and 95% of our
cost of products sold and operating expenses are attributable to our crude oil
acquisition and marketing activities in our Western Pipeline System. However,
the critical profitability factor for these activities is the gross margin, not
the absolute level of revenues and expenses.

   Depreciation and amortization was $25.3 million for 2001 compared to $20.7
million in 2000. This $4.6 million increase was primarily due to recent capital
expenditures. A $1.4 million write-off of refined product terminal equipment
also contributed to the increase.

   Selling, general and administrative expenses were $36.0 million in 2001
compared to $34.7 million in 2000. Selling, general and administrative expenses
include amounts allocated to us by Sunoco, Inc. to cover the costs of
centralized corporate functions incurred on our behalf. These costs totaled
$10.8 million and $10.1 million in 2001 and 2000, respectively.

   Net interest expense was $11.0 million for 2001 versus $10.3 million in
2000. This $0.7 million increase was primarily due to lower capitalized
interest. Income tax expense decreased as a result of the decrease in pretax
earnings. The effective tax rate decreased to 37% in 2001 from 38% in 2000.

  Analysis of Segment Operating Income

   Eastern Pipeline System.  Operating income in our Eastern Pipeline System
was $29.9 million in 2001 compared to $31.1 million in 2000. This $1.2 million
decrease was due to a $3.7 million increase in total costs and expenses,
partially offset by a $2.4 million increase in sales and other operating
revenue and a $0.1 million increase in other income. Total pipeline throughput
for 2001 increased 9,364 bpd, or 2% compared to 2000, while shipments in barrel
miles increased 1%. The average tariff per barrel mile increased to 0.450
(cent) per barrel for 2001 from 0.440 (cent) per barrel for 2000.

   The $3.7 million increase in total costs and expenses was due to increases
in operating expenses of $1.6 million primarily due to additional environmental
remediation costs associated with a prior-period pipeline leak, increases in
depreciation and amortization of $1.5 million due to recent capital
expenditures, increases in selling, general and administrative expenses of $0.6
million.

   The $2.4 million increase in sales and other operating revenue was primarily
due to increased tariff revenue on our Marysville to Toledo crude oil pipeline
and our Twin Oaks to Montello, Twin Oaks to Newark, and Toledo to Blawnox
refined product pipelines. The higher revenue from the Marysville to Toledo
pipeline was due to a 6,762 bpd increase in volumes resulting from higher
Canadian crude oil purchases by Sunoco R&M and third parties, a larger
percentage of higher-tariff crude oil shipments, and a tariff increase in
mid-2001. The increase in revenue on the Twin Oaks to Montello and Twin Oaks to
Newark pipelines was attributable to a 4,732 bpd increase in shipments from
Sunoco R&M's Marcus Hook refinery, which had a major catcracker turnaround in
2000. The increase in revenue on the Toledo to Blawnox pipeline was due to
higher average tariff rates.

   The $0.1 million increase in other income was primarily due to the $0.5
million increase in equity income from Explorer discussed above, partially
offset by lower allocated insurance-related gains.

   Terminal Facilities.  Operating income in our Terminal Facilities was $16.1
million in 2001 compared to $17.2 million in 2000. This $1.1 million decrease
was primarily due to a 25% decrease in terminal throughput at our Nederland
Terminal largely resulting from the absence of Department of Energy sales of
crude oil from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve, which occurred primarily during
the fourth quarter of 2000. The decline in Nederland Terminal throughput was
also due to a reduction in low-tariff throughput at this facility attributable
to reduced volumes from one customer of approximately 75,000 bpd. Partially
offsetting these factors were storage revenue attributable to a new 660,000
barrel tank placed into service at our Nederland Terminal in September 2000 and
lower operating expenses, including costs associated with terminal repair and
upgrade projects in 2000 at the Fort Mifflin Terminal.

   Historically, most of the terminalling and throughput services we have
provided for Sunoco R&M were at fees that enabled us to recover our costs, but
not to generate operating income. Accordingly, a $0.9 million

                                      49


<PAGE>

decrease in these costs and expenses during 2001 resulted in a corresponding
decrease in revenues. The primary cause for these declines was the absence of
$6.0 million in charges recognized in 2000 in connection with remediation
activities related to a February 2000 crude oil spill at one of our crude oil
transfer lines to the Darby Creek Tank Farm. Partially offsetting this factor
were higher depreciation and amortization, other environmental remediation
expenses, and other general cost increases. The increase in depreciation and
amortization was largely due to a $1.4 million write-off of refined product
terminal equipment. Recent capital expenditures also contributed to the
increase.

   Throughput volumes at our inland refined product terminals increased 2% in
2001 primarily due to stronger heating oil and other distillate fuel demand
resulting from colder weather. For our refinery-related assets, the average
throughput in 2001 increased by 1% at the Fort Mifflin Terminal Complex and 3%
at the Marcus Hook Tank Farm.

   Western Pipeline System.  Operating income in our Western Pipeline System
was $7.4 million in 2001 compared to $11.1 million in 2000. This $3.7 million
decrease was primarily due to a $2.1 million decrease in gross margin, a $1.2
million increase in selling, general and administrative expenses and a $0.4
million decrease in other income. Crude oil pipeline throughput volumes
decreased 3% as a decline in high-tariff throughput was essentially offset by
an increase in low-tariff volumes. Gross margin per barrel of pipeline
throughput decreased by 1.3 (cent) in 2001 versus 2000.

   The $2.1 million decrease in gross margin was due to a decrease in margins
from crude oil pipeline operations. Crude oil acquisition and marketing margins
were essentially unchanged versus 2000. The decline in crude oil pipeline
margins was mainly due to lower revenues in our Texas Gulf Coast and East Texas
Pipeline system and higher depreciation and amortization expense. The lower
revenues were primarily the result of reduced shipments of crude oil through
our Nederland to Longview pipeline, which delivers crude oil to the Mid-Valley
and BP pipelines at Longview, Texas. Revenues also declined due to lower
gathering volumes. The increase in depreciation and amortization expense was
primarily due to recent capital expenditures. Also contributing to the decline
in crude oil pipeline margins was an increase in pipeline operating expenses
due in part to higher electricity prices.

   The $1.2 million increase in selling, general and administrative expenses
was primarily due to higher allocated costs from Sunoco, Inc. and other general
cost increases.

   The $0.4 million decrease in other income was due to the lower allocated
insurance-related gains.

Year Ended December 31, 2000 versus Year Ended December 31, 1999

  Analysis of Combined Statements of Income

   Sales and other operating revenues for 2000 were $1,808.6 million compared
to $974.2 million for 1999, an increase of $834.4 million. This increase was
primarily due to higher crude oil prices and volumes. The average price of WTI
at Cushing increased to $30.20 per barrel in 2000 from $19.24 per barrel in
1999. Sales volumes increased 12.7 million barrels, or 32%, during 2000 in
large part due to the full-year impact of the acquisition of the crude oil
transportation and marketing assets of Pride Companies, L.P., or the West Texas
assets, in October 1999.

   Other income was $5.6 million in 2000 versus $6.1 million in 1999. This $0.5
million decrease was due to an $0.8 million decline in Explorer equity income
to $3.8 million in 2000 from $4.6 million in 1999, due to costs associated with
a refined products spill that occurred in March 2000, partially offset by a
$0.4 million allocated gain on the receipt of stock by Sunoco, Inc. in
connection with an insurance company demutualization.

   Total cost of products sold and operating expenses increased $832.9 million
to $1,699.5 million in 2000 from $866.6 million in 1999. This increase was
primarily due to higher crude oil acquisition prices and purchase volumes.

                                      50


<PAGE>

   Depreciation and amortization was $20.7 million in 2000 versus $19.9 million
in 1999. This $0.8 million increase was primarily due to recent capital
expenditures and the acquisition of the West Texas assets in October 1999.

   Selling, general and administrative expenses were $34.7 million in 2000
versus $27.5 million in 1999. This $7.2 million increase was largely due to
higher allocated costs attributable to Sunoco, Inc.'s employee incentive
compensation and benefit plans. Historically, allocated incentive compensation
costs were determined based upon Sunoco, Inc.'s overall financial performance.
Future incentive compensation will depend upon our performance.

   Higher salaries and wages also contributed to the increase. Selling, general
and administrative expenses include amounts allocated to us by Sunoco, Inc.,
which were $10.1 million and $9.0 million in 2000 and 1999, respectively.

   Net interest expense was $10.3 million in 2000 versus $6.5 million in 1999.
This $3.8 million increase was primarily due to higher average outstanding
borrowings from an affiliate, partially offset by higher capitalized interest.
Income tax expense decreased as a result of the decline in pretax earnings. The
effective tax rate in both 2000 and 1999 was 38%.

  Analysis of Segment Operating Income

   Eastern Pipeline System.  Operating income in our Eastern Pipeline System
was $31.1 million in 2000 compared to $38.5 million in 1999. This $7.4 million
decrease was due to a $1.3 million decrease in sales and other operating
revenue, a $5.2 million increase in total costs and expenses, and a $0.9
million decrease in other income. Refined product pipeline throughput in 2000
decreased 17,333 bpd, or 4%, compared to 1999, and shipments in barrel miles
decreased 2% in the current period. The average tariff per barrel mile
increased to 0.440(cent) per barrel in 2000 from 0.438(cent) per barrel in 1999.

   The $1.3 million decrease in sales and other operating revenue was due in
part to lower tariff revenue from most of our refined product pipelines
resulting from decreased production at Sunoco R&M's refineries related to
scheduled refinery turnarounds. Also contributing to the lower sales and other
operating revenue were decreased sales of heating oil and other distillate
fuels by Sunoco R&M at our terminals due to unseasonably warm weather and
reduced shipments on our Twin Oaks to Newark pipeline due to higher prices of
refined products, particularly gasoline, in the Philadelphia area than in the
New York Harbor market. Partially offsetting these negative factors were
increased tariff revenues resulting from increased throughput on our
Philadelphia to Linden pipeline due to the expansion of the Linden junction and
a new connection to a third-party terminal in Syracuse, New York, which allowed
Sunoco R&M to shift volumes from competitors' pipelines to our Montello to
Syracuse pipeline. Revenues also increased on our Marysville to Toledo crude
oil pipeline due to increased processing of Canadian crude oil at Sunoco R&M's
Toledo refinery.

   The $5.2 million increase in total costs and expenses was due to a $2.5
million increase in operating expenses, a $2.3 million increase in selling,
general and administrative expenses, and a $0.4 million increase in
depreciation and amortization. The increase in operating expenses was primarily
due to the adverse impact of changes in volumetric gains and losses on our
pipelines and higher environmental remediation costs largely due to a pipeline
leak that occurred in January 2000. The increase in selling, general and
administrative expenses was primarily due to higher employee incentive
compensation payments and benefit costs and administrative costs allocated to
us from Sunoco, Inc.

   The $0.9 million decrease in other income was primarily due to the $0.8
million decline in equity income from Explorer discussed above.

   Terminal Facilities.  Operating income in our Terminal Facilities was $17.2
million in 2000 compared to $16.8 million in 1999. This $0.4 million increase
was primarily due to higher revenues at our Nederland

                                      51


<PAGE>

Terminal primarily as a result of a 4% increase in terminal throughput. The
higher throughput was largely due to U.S. Department of Energy sales of crude
oil from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve primarily during the fourth quarter of
2000, which was partially offset by decreased throughput of lubricant products
by Sunoco R&M. Also partially offsetting the higher revenues was an increase in
operating and administrative expenses largely as a result of higher employee
incentive compensation payments and benefit costs and higher utility costs
attributable to increases in electricity and fuel prices.

   Total costs and corresponding revenues attributable to our inland refined
product terminals and refinery-related assets increased $7.0 million as a
result of the $6.0 million of charges recognized in 2000 in connection with the
remediation activities related to the spill in February 2000 at one of our
crude oil transfer lines to the Darby Creek Tank Farm. Higher employee
incentive compensation and benefit costs also contributed to the increase.

   Throughput volumes at our inland refined product terminals increased 6% in
2000 primarily due to higher Sunoco R&M retail gasoline sales volumes,
particularly in the Midwest. The average throughput of our refinery-related
assets was essentially unchanged in 2000 as increased crude oil throughput at
Sunoco R&M's Philadelphia refinery offset declines related to scheduled
turnaround activity at Sunoco R&M's Marcus Hook refinery.

   Western Pipeline System.  Operating income in our Western Pipeline System
was $11.1 million for both 2000 and 1999. A $3.0 million increase in gross
margin was offset by higher selling, general and administrative expenses.
Revenues and expenses in the Western Pipeline System increased significantly
during 2000 in large part due to the acquisition of the West Texas assets in
October 1999, which contributed $4.1 million and $1.3 million to operating
income (including gross margin of $4.5 million and $1.4 million) in 2000 and
1999, respectively. Excluding the West Texas assets, gross margin decreased
$0.1 million in 2000 primarily due to a decrease in margins from crude oil
acquisition and marketing activities, essentially offset by an increase in
margins from crude oil pipeline operations.

   Crude oil acquisition and marketing margins declined primarily due to
increased competitive pressure in 2000 for purchasing crude oil as demand from
Midwest refineries increased and domestic production declined. We were unable
to pass all of the increase in crude oil acquisition costs on to Sunoco R&M
under the terms of a supply agreement. Also contributing to the margin decline
was the adverse impact of volumetric gains and losses in our crude oil trucking
operations. Partially offsetting these negative factors was the absence of
unfavorable litigation settlements recognized in 1999.

   The higher crude oil pipeline margin reflects higher gross margin from the
10-inch East Texas pipeline reactivated in July 1999 to transport foreign crude
oil for Sunoco R&M's Toledo refinery and additional deliveries on the pipeline
to Sunoco R&M's and Sinclair Oil's Tulsa refineries. Partially offsetting these
positive factors were increases in salaries and wages, utility costs, and
rental expense.

   The $3.2 million increase in selling, general and administrative expenses
was primarily due to the higher employee incentive compensation and benefit
costs and higher administrative costs allocated to us by Sunoco, Inc.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

Cash Flows and Capital Expenditures

   Net cash provided by operating activities in 2001 was $27.2 million compared
to $79.1 million in 2000 and $125.2 million in 1999. The $51.9 million decrease
in net cash provided by operating activities in 2001 was primarily due to a
$57.8 million increase in working capital uses pertaining to operating
activities, partially offset by an increase in depreciation and amortization of
$4.7 million, and deferred income taxes of $3.5 million.

                                      52


<PAGE>

   The $57.8 million increase in working capital uses pertaining to operating
activities was due to a $33.5 million increase in working capital in 2001
compared to a $24.3 million decrease in working capital in 2000. The increase
in working capital in 2001 was primarily a result of the impact of a decline in
crude oil prices on receivables and payables from the purchase and sale of
crude oil in the Western Pipeline System. During 2000, crude oil prices
increased, which caused working capital to decline.

   The inverse relationship between crude oil prices and the level of working
capital exists because we have more crude oil payables than receivables and
because we use the last-in, first-out method of accounting for crude oil
inventories in our crude oil acquisition and marketing activities. Crude oil
payables exceed crude oil receivables largely due to the absence of a crude oil
receivable from Sunoco R&M. Historically, receivables from Sunoco R&M have been
settled immediately through the net parent investment account. The following
example illustrates this inverse relationship. As crude oil prices increase,
the carrying amount of inventory does not change under the last-in, first-out
method of accounting, while both crude oil receivables and payables increase.
Because crude oil payables exceed crude oil receivables, the impact of the
price increase on payables is greater, resulting in a reduction in working
capital. Upon completion of the master partnership's initial public offering in
February 2002, payment terms in our crude oil supply contracts with Sunoco R&M
now result in crude oil receivables, lowering the net crude oil payable and
reducing the impact of changes in crude oil prices on net cash provided by
operating activities.

   The $46.1 million decrease in net cash provided by operating activities in
2000 was largely due to a $35.5 million decrease in working capital sources
pertaining to operating activities and a $6.9 million decrease in net income.
The decrease in working capital sources during 2000 was primarily due to the
impact of crude oil price changes on receivables and payables from the purchase
and sale of crude oil in the Western Pipeline System.

   Net cash used in investing activities for the years ended December 31, 2001,
2000, and 1999 was $73.1 million, $77.3 million, and $75.1 million,
respectively. Capital expenditures were $72.7 million in 2001, $57.9 million in
2000, and $47.0 million in 1999. The other significant investing transactions
in the three-year period were the acquisition of the West Texas assets in 1999
for $29.6 million and a loan to The Claymont Investment Company, a wholly owned
subsidiary of Sunoco, Inc., of $20.0 million in 2000.

   Net cash provided by (used in) financing activities for the years ended
December 31, 2001, 2000 and 1999 was $45.8 million, $(1.8) million, and $(50.0)
million, respectively. Contributions from (distributions to) Sunoco, Inc. and
its affiliates were $91.1 million, $(96.6) million, and $(49.8) million in
2001, 2000 and 1999, respectively. Net proceeds from (repayments of) borrowings
from The Claymont Investment Company were $(45.0) million in 2001 and $95.0
million in 2000.

   The Claymont Investment Company serves as a lender and borrower of funds to
and from Sunoco, Inc. and its subsidiaries, including the predecessor to Sunoco
Logistics Partners L.P., to enable those entities to achieve their desired
capital structures. Amounts owed to and due from The Claymont Investment
Company under these financing arrangements included in the Predecessor's
combined balance sheets were not assumed by or contributed to Sunoco Logistics
Partners L.P. We will not engage in these types of financing arrangements with
The Claymont Investment Company or any other subsidiary of Sunoco, Inc.

  Capital Requirements

   The pipeline, terminalling, and crude oil storage operations are capital
intensive, requiring significant investment to upgrade or enhance existing
operations and to meet environmental and operational regulations. Our capital
requirements have consisted, and are expected to continue to consist, primarily
of:

  .  Maintenance capital expenditures, such as those required to maintain
     equipment reliability, tankage, and pipeline integrity and safety, and to
     address environmental regulations; and

                                      53


<PAGE>

  .  Expansion capital expenditures to acquire complementary assets to grow our
     business and to expand existing facilities, such as projects that increase
     storage or throughput volumes.

   The following table summarizes maintenance and expansion capital
expenditures for the years presented:

   We estimate that our annual maintenance capital expenditures will be $27.0
million in 2002. These projected maintenance capital outlays are approximately
$14.7 million lower than the average annual outlays for 1999-2001. This prior
period included several one-time projects to upgrade our technology, increase
reliability, and lower our cost structure. We do not believe we will incur
these types of expenditures in 2002.

   In the area of technology, we completed numerous automation projects,
upgraded our metering systems, enhanced various software packages, and replaced
pipeline control systems. In addition, we completed numerous asset upgrade
projects, including relocating pipelines at the Philadelphia International
Airport due to runway and terminal reconfigurations, rebuilds on three pump
stations, replacement and upgrade of vapor recovery units at our product
terminals and repair and upgrades on the crude oil transfer lines between Hog
Island Wharf and the Darby Creek Tank Farm. The crude oil transfer lines, which
were historically a part of Sunoco R&M's refining business, did not meet
pipeline standards and could not be internally inspected or maintained by
conventional leak detection devices prior to completion of this project.

   In the area of transportation and safety, the DOT has recently adopted a
pipeline integrity management rule. Based on historical integrity tests
conducted since 1989, we have estimated that compliance with this rule will
cost us approximately $8.0 million per year for five years, or a total of $40.0
million, for all pipelines in our Eastern and Western Pipeline Systems that are
subject to this rule. Under the terms of the omnibus agreement, Sunoco R&M will
reimburse us for operating expenses and capital expenditures in excess of $8.0
million per year (up to an aggregate maximum of $15.0 million over a five-year
period) incurred to comply with the DOT's pipeline integrity management rule.

   In addition, Sunoco R&M is, at its expense, completing for the Darby Creek
Tank Farm certain tank maintenance and inspection projects now in progress or
expected to be completed within one year from the closing of the initial public
offering. Sunoco R&M estimates total costs to complete these projects will be
approximately $4.0 million. Sunoco R&M will also reimburse us up to $10.0
million in connection with expenditures required at the Darby Creek and Marcus
Hook Tank Farms to maintain compliance with existing industry standards and
regulatory requirements.

   We are reflecting outlays for these programs as operating expenses or
capital expenditures, as appropriate. Capital expenditures are being
depreciated over their useful lives. Reimbursements by Sunoco R&M are being
reflected as capital contributions.

   Our typical growth projects consist of new tankage, increased throughput on
our existing pipelines, and new connections for deliveries to customers. We
anticipate pursuing similar growth projects and acquisitions.

   We expect to fund our capital expenditures, including any acquisitions, from
cash provided by operations and, to the extent necessary, from the proceeds of:

  .  borrowing under the revolving credit facility discussed below and other
     borrowings; and

  .  issuance of additional common units.

  Initial Public Offering

   On February 8, 2002, the master partnership issued 5.75 million common units
(including 750,000 units issued pursuant to the underwriters' over-allotment
option), representing a 24.8% limited partnership interest in the master
partnership, in an initial public offering at a price of $20.25 per unit.
Proceeds from this offering, which totaled approximately $102 million net of
underwriting discounts and offering expenses, were used to establish working
capital that was not contributed to us by Sunoco, Inc.

  Credit Facility

   In conjunction with the master partnership's initial public offering, we
entered into a three-year $150.0 million revolving credit facility, which is
available to fund our working capital requirements, to finance future
acquisitions, and for general partnership purposes. This credit facility
includes a $20.0 million distribution sublimit that is available for
distributions. We may use the credit facility to fund the minimum quarterly
distributions provided the total outstanding borrowings for distributions do
not at any time exceed $20.0 million. We will be required to reduce to zero all
borrowings under the distribution sublimit under the revolving credit facility
each year for 15 days. Currently, we have no borrowings under this credit
facility.

   Our obligations under the credit facility are unsecured. Indebtedness under
the credit facility will rank equally with all the outstanding unsecured and
unsubordinated debt of our operating partnership. We may prepay all loans at
any time without penalty subject to reimbursement of breakage and redeployment
costs in the case of prepayment of LIBOR borrowings.

   Indebtedness under the credit facility will bear interest, at our option, at
either (i) LIBOR plus an applicable margin or (ii) the higher of the federal
funds rate plus 0.50% or the Bank of America prime rate (each plus the
applicable margin). We will incur fees in connection with the revolving credit
facility. The revolving credit facility will mature in January 2005. At that
time, the facility will terminate and all outstanding amounts will be due and
payable.

   The credit agreement prohibits us from declaring distributions to
unitholders if any event of default, as defined in the credit agreement, occurs
or would result from the declaration of distributions. In addition, the credit
facility contains various covenants limiting our ability to:

  .  incur indebtedness;

  .  grant certain liens;

  .  make certain loans, acquisitions, and investments;

  .  make any material change to the nature of our business;

  .  acquire another company; or

  .  enter into a merger or sale of assets, including the sale or transfer of
     interests in our subsidiaries.

   The credit facility also contains covenants requiring us to maintain on a
rolling-four-quarter basis:

  .  a ratio of up to 4:1 of consolidated total debt to consolidated EBITDA
     (each as defined in the credit agreement); and

  .  an interest coverage ratio (as defined in the credit agreement) of 3.5:1.

                                      55


<PAGE>

   Each of the following will be an event of default under the revolving credit
facility:

  .  failure to pay any principal, interest, fees, or other amounts when due;

  .  failure of any representation or warranty to be true and correct;

  .  termination of any material agreement, including the pipelines and
     terminals storage and throughput agreement and the omnibus agreement;

  .  default under any material agreement if such default could have a material
     adverse effect on us;

  .  bankruptcy or insolvency events involving us, our general partner, our
     master partnership's general partner, or our subsidiaries;

  .  the entry of monetary judgments, not covered or funded by insurance,
     against us, our general partner, our master partnership's general partner,
     or any of our or its subsidiaries in excess of $20.0 million in the
     aggregate or any non-monetary judgment having a material adverse effect;

  .  the sale by Sunoco, Inc. of a material portion of its refinery assets or
     other assets related to its agreements with us unless the purchaser of
     those assets has a minimum credit rating and fully assumes the rights and
     obligations of Sunoco, Inc. under those agreements; and

  .  failure by Sunoco, Inc. to own, directly or indirectly, 51% of the general
     partnership interest in the master partnership or to control our
     management and that of the master partnership.

  Senior Notes

   Also in connection with the master partnership's initial public offering, we
issued $250 million of senior notes, the net proceeds of which have been
distributed to Sunoco, Inc. as additional consideration for its contribution of
assets to us. The senior notes were issued pursuant to an indenture, and our
obligations under the senior notes are unsecured. Indebtedness under the senior
notes ranks equally with the credit facility and all our outstanding unsecured
and unsubordinated debt. The senior notes and revolving credit facility have
been guaranteed by the master partnership and our subsidiaries. The senior
notes will mature on February 15, 2012 and bear interest at a rate of 7.25% per
annum, payable semi-annually on February 15 and August 15, commencing August
15, 2002. The senior notes are redeemable, at our option, at a make-whole
premium calculated on the basis of a discount rate equal to the yield on United
States treasury notes having a constant maturity comparable to the remaining
term of the senior notes, plus 25 basis points. The senior notes are not
subject to any sinking fund provisions. Please read "Description of the New
Notes" for a more detailed description of the senior notes.

Environmental Matters

   Operation of our pipelines, terminals, and associated facilities are subject
to stringent and complex federal, state, and local laws and regulations
governing the discharge of materials into the environment or otherwise relating
to protection of the environment. As a result of our compliance with these laws
and regulations, we have accrued liabilities for estimated site restoration
costs to be incurred in the future at our facilities and properties, including
liabilities for environmental remediation obligations. Under our accounting
policies, we record liabilities when site restoration and environmental
remediation and cleanup obligations are either known or considered probable and
can be reasonably estimated. For a discussion of the accrued liabilities and
charges against income related to these activities, see Note 7 to the
historical financial statements of Sunoco Logistics Partners L.P.

   Under the terms of the omnibus agreement and in connection with the
contribution of our assets by affiliates of Sunoco, Inc., Sunoco, Inc. has
agreed to indemnify us for 30 years from environmental and toxic tort
liabilities related to the assets contributed to us that arise from the
operation of such assets prior to closing of the master partnership's initial
public offering. Sunoco, Inc. is obligated to indemnify us for 100% of all
losses asserted within the first 21 years of closing. Sunoco, Inc.'s share of
liability for claims asserted thereafter will decrease by

                                      56


<PAGE>

10% a year. For example, for a claim asserted during the twenty-third year
after closing, Sunoco, Inc. would be required to indemnify us for 80% of our
loss. There is no monetary cap on the amount of indemnity coverage provided by
Sunoco, Inc. Any environmental and toxic tort liabilities not covered by this
indemnity will be our responsibility. Total future costs for environmental
remediation activities will depend upon, among other things, the identification
of any additional sites, the determination of the extent of the contamination
at each site, the timing and nature of required remedial actions, the
technology available and needed to meet the various existing legal
requirements, the nature and extent of future environmental laws, inflation
rates, and the determination of our liability at multi-party sites, if any, in
light of the number, participation levels, and financial viability of other
parties. We have agreed to indemnify Sunoco, Inc. and its affiliates for events
and conditions associated with the operation of our assets that occur on or
after the closing of the master partnership's initial public offering and for
environmental and toxic tort liabilities to the extent Sunoco, Inc. is not
required to indemnify us.

   The use of MTBE continues to be the focus of federal and state government
attention due to public health and environmental issues that have been raised
by the use of MTBE in gasoline, and specifically the discovery of MTBE in water
supplies. MTBE is the primary oxygenate used by Sunoco R&M and other petroleum
refiners to meet reformulated gasoline requirements under the Clean Air Act.
Many states, including New York and Connecticut, have banned or restricted the
use of MTBE in gasoline commencing as early as 2003 in response to concerns
about MTBE's adverse impact on ground or surface water. Other states are
considering bans or restrictions on MTBE or opting out of the EPA's
reformulated gasoline program, either of which events would reduce the use of
MTBE. Any ban or restriction on the use of MTBE may lead to the greater use of
ethanol. Unlike MTBE, which can be blended in gasoline at the refinery, ethanol
is blended at the terminal and is not transported by our pipelines. While many
of our inland-refined product terminals currently blend ethanol, any revenues
we would receive for blending ethanol might not offset the loss of revenues we
would suffer from the reduced volumes we transport on our Eastern refined
product pipelines.

   Another significant environmental uncertainty relates to Sunoco R&M's
potential capital expenditures to comply with new fuel specifications required
under the Clean Air Act, and to respond to the EPA's enforcement initiative
under the authority of the Clean Air Act's New Source Review and Prevention of
Significant Deterioration, or NSR/PSD, program, including the notices of
violation recently received by Sunoco R&M. It is uncertain what Sunoco, Inc. or
Sunoco R&M's responses to these emerging issues will be. We cannot assure you
that those responses will not reduce Sunoco R&M's obligations under the
pipelines and terminals storage and throughput agreement, thereby reducing the
throughput in our pipelines and our cash flow.

   For more information concerning environmental matters, please read
"Business--Environmental Regulation."

Impact of Inflation

   Although the impact of inflation has slowed in recent years, it is still a
factor in the United States economy and may increase the cost to acquire or
replace property, plant, and equipment and may increase the costs of labor and
supplies. To the extent permitted by competition, regulation, and existing
agreements, we have and will continue to pass along increased costs to our
customers in the form of higher fees.

Critical Accounting Policies

   Disclosures of our significant accounting policies is included in Note 1 to
the historical financial statements of Sunoco Logistics Partners L.P. Certain
of these policies are particularly sensitive and require significant judgments,
estimates and assumptions to be made by us. A discussion of these policies is
set forth below.

   Properties, Plants and Equipment and Impairment of Long-Lived Assets.  We
calculate depreciation and amortization of our properties, plants and equipment
based on estimated useful lives and salvage values of the assets. Factors
impacting these estimates include normal wear and tear, maintenance levels and
economic

                                      57


<PAGE>

conditions impacting the demand for these assets. In addition, long-lived
assets are subject to testing for impairment whenever circumstances indicate
that their carrying amount may not be recoverable. For example, a significant
decrease in an asset's market value, a major adverse change in the business
climate in which it operates or a history of operating or cash flow losses may
be an indication of impairment. Impairment testing involves estimating future
net cash flows relating to the asset, including assumptions about future market
conditions, operating and capital expenditures and other factors.

   Environmental Remediation.  We accrue environmental remediation costs for
work at identified sites where an assessment has indicated that cleanup costs
are probable and reasonably estimable. Such accruals are undiscounted and are
based on currently available information, estimated timing of remedial actions
and related inflation assumptions, existing technology and presently enacted
laws and regulations. Accruals may require adjustment as new sites are
identified or additional information about current sites becomes available.
Technology changes, new environmental laws and regulations and other factors
may also impact future environmental expenditures. For a further discussion of
our environmental remediation activities, please see "--Environmental Matters."

New Accounting Pronouncements

   In June 1998, Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 133,
"Accounting for Derivative Instruments and Hedging Activities," was issued and,
in June 2000, it was amended by Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No.
138, "Accounting for Certain Derivative Instruments and Certain Hedging
Activities" (collectively, "new derivative accounting"). The new derivative
accounting requires recognition of all derivative contracts in the balance
sheet at their fair value. If the derivative contracts qualify for hedge
accounting, depending on their nature, changes in their fair values are either
offset in net income against the changes in the fair values of the items being
hedged or reflected initially as a separate component of the net parent
investment and subsequently recognized in net income when the hedged items are
recognized in net income. The ineffective portions of changes in the fair
values of derivative contracts that qualify for hedge accounting as well as
changes in fair value of all other derivatives are immediately recognized in
net income. The new derivative accounting was adopted effective January 1,
2001. There was no impact on net income during 2001.

   In July 2001, Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 142, "Goodwill
and Other Intangible Assets" ("SFAS No. 142"), was issued. Sunoco Logistics
Partners L.P. will adopt SFAS No. 142 effective January 1, 2002 when adoption
is mandatory. SFAS No. 142 will require the testing of goodwill and
indefinite-lived intangible assets for impairment rather than amortizing them.
We are currently assessing the impact of adopting SFAS No. 142 on our combined
financial statements. The current level of annual amortization of goodwill and
indefinite-lived intangible assets, which will be eliminated upon the adoption
of SFAS No. 142, is approximately $0.8 million.

   In August 2001, Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 143,
"Accounting for Asset Retirement Obligations" ("SFAS No. 143"), was issued.
This statement significantly changes the method of accruing for costs
associated with the retirement of fixed assets that an entity is legally
obligated to incur. We will evaluate the impact and timing of implementing SFAS
No. 143. Implementation of this standard is required no later than January 1,
2003.

   In August 2001, Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 144,
"Accounting for the Impairment or Disposal of Long-Lived Assets" ("SFAS No.
144"), was issued. Sunoco Logistics Partners L.P. will adopt SFAS No. 144
effective January 1, 2002 when adoption is mandatory. Among other things, SFAS
No. 144 significantly changes the criteria that would have to be met to
classify an asset as held-for-sale. SFAS No. 144 supersedes Statement of
Financial Accounting Standards No. 121, "Accounting for the Impairment of
Long-Lived Assets and for Long-Lived Assets to Be Disposed Of," and the
provisions of Accounting Principles Board Opinion 30, "Reporting the Results of
Operations--Reporting the Effects of Disposal of a Segment of a Business, and

                                      58


<PAGE>

Extraordinary, Unusual and Infrequently Occurring Events and Transactions,"
that relate to reporting the effects of a disposal of a segment of a business.
We are currently assessing the impact of adopting SFAS No. 144 on our combined
financial statements.

Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk

   We are exposed to various market risks, including volatility in crude oil
commodity prices and interest rates. To manage such exposure, we monitor our
inventory levels and our expectations of future commodity prices and interest
rates when making decisions with respect to risk management. We have not
entered into derivative transactions that would expose us to price risk.

   Concurrent with the master partnership's initial public offering, we entered
into a $150 million credit facility. Although currently undrawn, we would pay
interest on the drawn portion of this credit facility which would expose us to
interest rate risk, since this credit facility bears variable interest.

                                  BUSINESS

Overview

   We are a Delaware limited partnership formed as the operating company of
Sunoco Logistics Partners L.P. on December 6, 2001 to acquire, own, and
operate, through our wholly owned subsidiaries, a geographically diverse and
complementary group of refined product and crude oil pipelines and terminal
facilities. We have an experienced management team dedicated to a growth
strategy, and we intend to acquire additional assets in the future. Our
business comprises three segments:

   . Eastern Pipeline System:

     --1,895 miles of refined product pipelines, including a one-third interest
       in an 80-mile refined product pipeline, which primarily serve Sunoco
       R&M's refining and marketing operations in the Northeast and Midwest
       United States, and 58 miles of interrefinery pipelines between Sunoco
       R&M's Philadelphia and Marcus Hook, Pennsylvania refineries;

     --a 123-mile wholly owned crude oil pipeline; and

     --a 9.4% interest in the Explorer Pipeline Company, a joint venture that
       owns a 1,413-mile refined product pipeline.

   . Terminal Facilities:

     --32 inland refined product terminals with an aggregate capacity of 4.8
       million barrels, which primarily serve our Eastern Pipeline System;

     --a 2.0 million barrel refined product terminal serving Sunoco R&M's
       Marcus Hook refinery near Philadelphia, Pennsylvania;

     --an 11.2 million barrel marine crude oil terminal on the Texas Gulf
       Coast, our Nederland Terminal;

  --oneinland and two marine crude oil terminals, with a combined capacity of
       3.0 million barrels, and related pipelines, all of which serve Sunoco
       R&M's Philadelphia refinery; and

     --a 1.0 million barrel LPG terminal near Detroit, Michigan.

   . Western Pipeline System:

     --1,883 miles of crude oil trunk pipelines and 870 miles of crude oil
       gathering lines that supply the trunk pipelines principally in Oklahoma
       and Texas;

  --143crude oil transport trucks; and

     --124 crude oil truck unloading facilities.

   We transport, terminal, and store refined products and crude oil in 11
states. We generate revenues by charging tariffs for transporting refined
products and crude oil through our pipelines and by charging fees for storing
refined products, crude oil, and other hydrocarbons in, and for providing other
services at, our terminals. We also generate revenues by purchasing domestic
crude oil and selling it to Sunoco R&M and other customers. Generally, as we
purchase crude oil, we simultaneously enter into corresponding sale
transactions involving physical deliveries of crude oil, which enables us to
secure a profit on the transaction at the time of purchase and establish a
substantially balanced position, thereby minimizing exposure to price
volatility after the initial purchase. Our practice is not to enter into
futures contracts.

   For the year ended December 31, 2001, on a pro forma basis, we had revenues
of $1,629.2 million, EBITDA of $90.1 million, and net income of $46.5 million.

Our Relationship with Sunoco, Inc.

   We have a strong and mutually beneficial relationship with Sunoco, Inc.
Through its subsidiaries, Sunoco, Inc. is a leading independent United States
refiner and marketer of petroleum products; a growing manufacturer of
petrochemicals; and a technologically advantaged manufacturer of
metallurgical-grade coke for use in the steel industry. Sunoco, Inc. has a
significant interest in our partnership through its indirect ownership of a
73.2% limited partner interest and a 2% general partner interest in the master
partnership.

   Sunoco, Inc. conducts its refinery and marketing operations through Sunoco
R&M. Substantially all of our business activities with Sunoco, Inc. are
conducted with Sunoco R&M. Sunoco R&M is the largest refiner in the Northeast
United States and owns and operates the following four refineries, which have a
combined crude oil processing capacity of 730,000 bpd:

   . the Philadelphia, Pennsylvania refinery, which can process 330,000 bpd of
     crude oil, making it the largest refinery in the Northeast United States;

   . the Marcus Hook, Pennsylvania refinery near Philadelphia, which can
     process 175,000 bpd of crude oil;

   . the Toledo, Ohio refinery, which can process 140,000 bpd of crude oil; and

   . the Tulsa, Oklahoma refinery, which can process 85,000 bpd of crude oil.

   Sunoco R&M markets refined products in 21 states on the East Coast and in
the Midwest through approximately 4,150 branded retail gasoline outlets,
selling nearly four billion gallons of gasoline per year. In addition, Sunoco
R&M sells refined products through wholesale and spot market sales and
exchanges refined product with other refiner-marketers to enhance distribution
efficiency.

   The majority of our operations are strategically located within Sunoco R&M's
refining and marketing supply chain, but we do not own or operate any refining
or marketing assets. Sunoco R&M relies on us to provide transportation and
terminalling services that support its refining and marketing operations. For
the year ended December 31, 2001, Sunoco R&M accounted for approximately 73% of
the pro forma revenues of our Eastern Pipeline System, 65% of the pro forma
revenues of our Terminal Facilities, and 66% of the pro forma revenues of our
Western Pipeline System. We expect to continue to derive a substantial portion
of our revenues from Sunoco R&M for the foreseeable future.

   The following table sets forth the crude oil refining capacity of each of
Sunoco R&M's refineries and, for the year ended December 31, 2001, the
percentages of crude oil and feedstocks and refined products that we
transported or terminalled for Sunoco R&M:

Pipelines and Terminals Storage and Throughput Agreement with Sunoco R&M

   Under a pipelines and terminals storage and throughput agreement entered
into with Sunoco R&M concurrent with the closing of the initial public offering
of the master partnership, Sunoco R&M will pay us fees generally comparable to
those charged by third parties to:

   . transport on our refined product pipelines or throughput in our 32 inland
     refined product terminals an amount of refined products that will produce
     at least $75.0 million of revenue in the first year, escalating at 1.67%
     per year for the next four years. In addition, Sunoco R&M will pay us to
     transport on our refined product pipelines an amount of refined products
     that will produce at least $54.3 million of revenue in the sixth year and
     at least $55.2 million of revenue in the seventh year. Sunoco R&M will pay
     the published tariffs on the pipelines and contractually agreed fees at
     the terminals. On a pro forma basis, we would have received $84.3 million
     in revenue from Sunoco R&M for the use of these pipelines and terminals
     during the year ended December 31, 2001;

   . receive and deliver at least 130,000 bpd of refined products per year at
     our Marcus Hook Tank Farm for five years. In the first year, we will
     receive a fee of $0.1627 per barrel for the first 130,000 bpd and $0.0813
     per barrel for volumes in excess of 130,000 bpd. These fees will escalate
     at the rate of 1.67% per year. During the year ended December 31, 2001,
     Sunoco R&M's throughput at the Marcus Hook Tank Farm averaged 138,490 bpd;

   . store 975,734 barrels of LPG per year at our Inkster Terminal, which
     represents all of our LPG storage capacity at this facility. In the first
     year of this seven-year agreement, we will receive a fee of $2.04 per
     barrel of committed storage, a fee of $0.204 per barrel for receipts
     greater than 975,734 barrels per year and a fee of $0.204 per barrel for
     deliveries greater than 975,734 barrels per year. These fees will escalate
     at the rate of 1.875% per year. For the past five years, Sunoco R&M has
     used the full capacity of our Inkster Terminal;

   . receive and deliver at least 290,000 bpd of crude oil or refined products
     per year at our Fort Mifflin Terminal Complex for seven years. In the
     first year, we will receive a fee of $0.1627 per barrel for the first
     180,000 bpd and $0.0813 per barrel for volumes in excess of 180,000 bpd.
     These fees will escalate at the rate of 1.67% per year. Sunoco's R&M's
     throughput at the Fort Mifflin Terminal Complex averaged 318,545 bpd
     during the year ended December 31, 2001; and

   . transport or cause to be transported an aggregate of at least 140,000 bpd
     of crude oil per year on our Marysville to Toledo, Nederland to Longview,
     Cushing to Tulsa, Barnsdall to Tulsa, and Bad Creek to Tulsa crude oil
     pipelines at the published tariffs for a term of seven years. During the
     year ended December 31, 2001, we and Sunoco R&M transported 166,537 bpd on
     these pipelines.

   If Sunoco R&M fails to meet its minimum obligations pursuant to the contract
terms set forth above, it will be required to pay us in cash the amount of any
shortfall, which may be applied as a credit in the following year after Sunoco
R&M's minimum obligations are met.

   Sunoco R&M's obligations under this agreement may be permanently reduced or
suspended if:

   . Sunoco R&M (1) shuts down or reconfigures one of its refineries (other
     than planned maintenance turnarounds) and (2) reasonably believes in good
     faith that such event will jeopardize its ability to satisfy its minimum
     revenue or throughput obligations. Sunoco R&M will be required to give at
     least six months' advance notice of any shut down or reconfiguration.
     Sunoco R&M will propose new minimum obligations that proportionally reduce
     the affected obligations. If we do not agree with this reduction, any
     change in Sunoco R&M's obligations will be determined by binding
     arbitration; or

   . Sunoco R&M (1) is prohibited from using MTBE in the gasoline it produces
     and (2) reasonably believes in good faith that such event will jeopardize
     its ability to satisfy its minimum revenue or throughput obligations.
     Sunoco R&M will be required to give at least 90 days advance notice of any
     planned prohibition on using MTBE in the gasoline it produces. Sunoco R&M
     will propose new minimum obligations that proportionally reduce its
     affected obligations. If we do not agree with this reduction, any change
     in Sunoco R&M's obligations will be determined by binding arbitration.

                                      62


<PAGE>

   Furthermore, if new laws or regulations are enacted that require us to make
substantial and unanticipated capital expenditures at the Terminal Facilities,
we will have the right to impose a monthly surcharge on Sunoco R&M for the use
of the Terminal Facilities to cover the cost of complying with these laws or
regulations, after we have made efforts to mitigate their effect. We and Sunoco
R&M will negotiate in good faith to agree on the level of the monthly
surcharge. If we are unable to agree, then we may terminate the agreement with
respect to the affected asset.

   Sunoco R&M's obligations under this agreement may be temporarily suspended
during the occurrence of an event that is outside the control of the parties
that renders performance impossible with respect to an asset for at least 30
days.

   Sunoco R&M has agreed not to challenge, or to cause others to challenge or
assist others in challenging, our tariff rates in effect during the term of the
agreement. This agreement does not prevent other current or future shippers
from challenging our tariff rates. At the end of the term of the agreement,
Sunoco R&M will be free to challenge, or to cause others to challenge or assist
others in challenging, our tariff rates in effect at that time.

   From time to time, Sunoco, Inc. may be presented with opportunities by third
parties with respect to its refinery assets. These opportunities may include
offers to purchase and joint venture propositions. Sunoco, Inc. is also
continually considering changes to its refineries. Those changes may involve
new facilities, reduction in certain operations or modifications of facilities
or operations. Changes may be considered to meet market demands, to satisfy
regulatory requirements or environmental and safety objectives, to improve
operational efficiency or for other reasons. Sunoco, Inc. has advised us that
although it continually considers the types of matters referred to above, it is
not currently proceeding with any transaction or plan that it believes is
likely to result in any reconfigurations or other operational changes in any of
its refineries served by our assets that would have a material effect on Sunoco
R&M's business relationship with us. Further, Sunoco, Inc. has also advised us
that it is not considering a shutdown of any of its refineries served by our
assets. Sunoco, Inc. is, however, actively managing its assets and operations,
and, therefore, changes of some nature, possibly material to its business
relationship with us, are likely to occur at some point in the future.

   To the extent Sunoco R&M does not extend or renew the pipelines and
terminals storage and throughput agreement, our financial condition and results
of operations may be adversely affected. Our assets were constructed or
purchased to service Sunoco R&M's refining and marketing supply chain and are
well-situated to suit Sunoco R&M's needs. As a result, we would expect that
even if this agreement is not renewed, Sunoco R&M would continue to use our
pipelines and terminals. However, we cannot assure you that Sunoco R&M will

Other Agreements with Sunoco R&M and Sunoco, Inc.

   Under a 20-year lease agreement, Sunoco R&M has agreed to pay us $5.1
million in the first year to lease the 58 miles of interrefinery pipelines
between Sunoco R&M's Philadelphia and Marcus Hook refineries, escalating at
1.67% per year for the next 19 years. On a pro forma basis, Sunoco R&M would
have paid us $5.0 million for the use of these pipelines during the year ended
December 31, 2001.

   Sunoco R&M has also agreed to purchase from us at market-based rates
particular grades of crude oil that our crude oil acquisition and marketing
business purchases for delivery to pipelines in: Longview, Trent, Tye, and
Colorado City, Texas; Haynesville, Louisiana; Marysville and Lewiston,
Michigan; and Tulsa, Oklahoma. At Marysville and Lewiston, Michigan, we
exchange Michigan sweet and Michigan sour crude oil we own for domestic sweet
crude oil supplied by Sunoco R&M at market-based rates. The initial term of
these agreements is two months. These agreements will automatically renew on a
monthly basis unless terminated by either party on 30 days' written notice.
Sunoco R&M has indicated that it has no current intention to terminate these
agreements. During the year ended December 31, 2001, Sunoco R&M purchased
70,461 bpd of crude oil from us in these areas.

   On February 8, 2002, the master partnership entered into an omnibus
agreement with Sunoco, Inc. and its affiliates under which they generally
agreed not to engage in the business of purchasing crude oil at the wellhead,
or operating crude oil pipelines or terminals, refined product pipelines or
terminals, or LPG terminals in the continental United States. In addition, this
agreement addresses our payment of a fee to Sunoco, Inc. or the master
partnership's general partner for the provision of various general and
administrative services, Sunoco R&M's reimbursement to us for certain
maintenance expenditures, Sunoco, Inc.'s indemnification of us for certain
environmental and other liabilities, and other matters.

   Please read "Certain Relationships and Related Transactions."

Sunoco, Inc. Owns and Controls the General Partner of Our Master Partnership

   We are a key element of Sunoco, Inc.'s business strategy, and Sunoco, Inc.
intends to use our master partnership and our partnership as the primary means
of growing its transportation and terminalling business. Sunoco, Inc. has
retained a significant interest in us through its indirect ownership of a 73.2%
limited partner interest and the 2% general partner interest in the master
partnership. While our relationship with Sunoco, Inc. and its subsidiaries
offers us many benefits, it is also a potential source of conflicts of
interest. Please read "Certain Relationships and Related Transactions."

Business Strategies

   Our primary business strategies are to:

   Generate stable cash flows.  In our Eastern Pipeline System, Terminal
Facilities, and Western Pipeline System, our customers pay us fees based on the
volume of refined product or crude oil shipped in our pipelines under published
tariffs or stored in, or distributed from, our terminals. Our Western Pipeline
System also generates revenues by purchasing domestic crude oil and selling it
to Sunoco R&M and other third parties. We have little direct exposure to
commodity price fluctuations in our Eastern Pipeline System and Terminal
Facilities because we do not own any of the refined products or crude oil that
we transport or store in these operations. In the Western Pipeline System, we
mitigate our commodity price exposure when we purchase lease crude oil by
simultaneously entering into sale transactions that are backed by physical
delivery. The geographic and business diversity of our assets also contributes
to the stability of our cash flows. Our current intention is to focus on
businesses and assets that generate stable cash flows.

   Increase our pipeline and terminal throughput.  When necessary to meet
increases in demand for refined products or crude oil, we have increased and
will increase capacity in our existing pipelines and terminals. We increase
capacity in our pipelines by adding or expanding pump stations or increasing
the diameter of the pipelines. In addition to these measures, over the last two
years we have added 1.2 million barrels of new storage capacity at our
Nederland Terminal, bringing our total storage capacity at Nederland to 11.2
million barrels. We anticipate adding an additional 1.3 million barrels of
storage capacity at our Nederland Terminal over the next 18 months to meet
growing demand.

   Pursue strategic and accretive acquisitions that complement our existing
asset base.  Sunoco, Inc. has a long history of successfully pursuing and
consummating energy acquisitions and intends to use us in the future as a
growth vehicle for its transportation and terminalling business. We expect to
pursue strategic acquisitions both independently and jointly with Sunoco, Inc.
that will enable us to grow our distributable cash flow and enhance our service
capabilities to Sunoco, Inc. and third parties. For example, we may acquire
pipeline or terminal assets associated with any refineries acquired by Sunoco,
Inc. or its affiliates.

   Continue to improve our operating efficiency and to reduce our costs.  We
are focused on monitoring and controlling our cost structure. We have been able
to implement cost saving initiatives such as energy conservation, bulk
purchasing, and automation of delivery facilities and pump stations. We intend
to continue to make investments to improve our operations and pursue cost
saving initiatives.

Competitive Strengths

   We believe we are well-positioned to execute our business strategies
successfully using the following competitive strengths:

   We have a unique strategic relationship with Sunoco R&M's refining and
marketing operations.  Our refined product and crude oil pipelines and
terminals are directly linked to Sunoco R&M's refineries and afford Sunoco R&M
with the most cost-effective means to access crude oil and distribute refined
products. For the year ended December 31, 2001, the three Sunoco R&M refineries
that we supply with crude oil and feedstocks received 87% of their crude oil
from us, and Sunoco R&M transported through our refined product pipelines or
across our Terminal Facilities approximately 72% of the refined products from
its four refineries. Sunoco R&M has agreed to continue using our assets to
transport, terminal, and store refined products and crude oil. Please read
"--Our Relationship with Sunoco, Inc." Furthermore, Sunoco, Inc. has a
significant economic incentive to see that our pipeline and terminal assets are
managed in the best interests of our unitholders because, as the ultimate owner
of our general partner, it indirectly owns a 2% general partner interest and a
73.2% limited partner interest in us. We may construct, own, and operate assets
that will be operated by us in connection with Sunoco, Inc.'s business and
pursue acquisitions jointly with Sunoco, Inc. and its subsidiaries.

   Our refined product pipelines and our terminals are strategically located in
areas with high demand.  We have a strong presence in the Northeast and Midwest
United States, areas where demand for refined products exceeds the supply from
local refineries. According to the Energy Information Administration, or EIA,
at the Department of Energy, or DOE, refined products transported into these
regions from other regions, including foreign countries, have increased 1.7%
annually from 1995 to 2000. As a result, our transportation and distribution
assets in these regions operate at high utilization rates, providing us a base
of stable cash flows. In the Gulf Coast region, our Nederland Terminal and
related pipeline network are strategically located to supply crude oil to local
refiners, as well as to major connecting pipelines that supply crude oil to the
Midwest United States. The Nederland Terminal is well-positioned to capitalize
on the trend of increasing foreign crude oil imports as inland domestic crude
oil production continues to decline. According to the EIA, imports of crude oil
through the Gulf Coast increased 4.8% annually from 1995 to 2000. In addition,
our Marysville, Michigan to Toledo, Ohio crude oil pipeline is one of only
three pipelines able to deliver Canadian crude oil to refineries in Michigan
and Northern Ohio. We believe this pipeline positions us to participate in the
growing market for Canadian crude oil, including synthetic crude oil, imported
to these refineries. The Canadian National Energy Board forecasts that
synthetic crude oil production will triple in the next 15 years, from 324,450
bpd to 995,400 bpd.

   We have a complementary portfolio of assets that are both geographically and
operationally diverse.  Our assets include our refined product pipelines and
terminals in the Northeast and Midwest United States and a crude oil terminal
and pipelines in Texas, Oklahoma, and the Texas Gulf Coast area. This diversity
contributes to our stable cash flows. Our Eastern Pipeline System, Terminal
Facilities, and Western Pipeline System represented 43%, 44%, and 13%,
respectively, of pro forma EBITDA for the year ended December 31, 2001.

   Our pipelines and terminals are efficient and well-maintained.  We have
recently made significant investments to upgrade our asset base. Our refined
product pipelines and many of our terminals are automated to ensure product
quality for our customers. In addition, substantially all of our pipelines
subject to regulation by the DOT are monitored by computerized control centers
that continuously track real-time operational data, including refined products
and crude oil quantities, flow rates and pressures. We utilize a
state-of-the-art internal inspection program and other procedures to monitor
the integrity of our pipelines.

   Our executive officers and directors have extensive experience and include
some of the most senior officers of Sunoco, Inc.  Our management team has
operated our assets for almost ten years. As a result, we believe we have the
expertise to execute our business strategies. The master partnership's general
partner has adopted compensation and incentive plans to closely align the
interests of our executive officers with the interests of our common
unitholders.

Eastern Pipeline System

   Sunoco R&M accounted for approximately 73% of our Eastern Pipeline segment
revenues for the year ended December 31, 2001.

Refined Product Pipelines

   Our refined product pipelines transport refined products from Sunoco R&M's
Philadelphia, Marcus Hook, and Toledo refineries, as well as from third
parties, to markets in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Michigan.
The refined products transported in these pipelines include conventional
gasoline, federal specification reformulated gasoline, other oxygenated
gasolines, low-octane gasoline for ethanol blending, distillates that include
high- and low-sulfur diesel and jet fuel, LPGs (such as propane, butane,
isobutane, and a butane/butylene mixture), refining feedstocks, and other
hydrocarbons (such as toluene and xylene). For the year ended December 31,
2001, gasoline and distillates represented approximately 60% and 35%,
respectively, of the total throughput in our refined product pipelines. Our
refined product pipelines were originally constructed between 1931 and 1967.
Our pipelines are regularly maintained, and we believe they are in good repair.
The FERC regulates the rates for interstate shipments on our Eastern Pipeline
System, and the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission regulates the rates for
intrastate shipments in Pennsylvania.


[GRAPHIC B- Map depicting our Eastern Pipeline System, including the location of
Sunoco R&M refineries.]



   The following table details the average aggregate daily number of barrels of
refined products transported on our refined product pipelines in each of the
years presented. The information in the following table does not include
interrefinery pipelines and transfer pipelines that transport large volumes
over short distances and generate minimal revenues.

   The mix of refined petroleum products delivered varies seasonally, with
gasoline demand peaking during the summer months, and demand for heating oil
and other distillate fuels being higher in the winter. In addition, weather
conditions in the areas served by our Eastern Pipeline System affect both the
demand for, and the mix of, the refined petroleum products delivered through
the Eastern Pipeline System, although historically any overall impact on the
total volumes shipped has been short term.

   The following table sets forth, for each of our refined product pipeline
systems, the origin and destination, length, diameter, capacity, throughput,
capacity utilization, revenues, and Sunoco R&M throughput for the year
presented. Except as shown below, we own 100% of our refined product pipeline
systems. Throughput is the total number of barrels per day transported on a
pipeline system and includes barrels ultimately transported to a delivery point
on another pipeline system. Revenues reflect tariff revenues generated by
barrels shipped to a delivery point on a pipeline system and do not include
revenues from tariffs generated by barrels shipped on but delivered to a
delivery point on another of our pipeline systems. For example, we would
include in our throughput calculation, 10,000 bpd of refined products
transported on our Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to Montello, Pennsylvania
pipeline system even though that refined product is ultimately delivered to a
point on our Montello to Buffalo, New York pipeline system, where it would also
be counted in the calculation of throughput. All of the revenues from
transporting the 10,000 bpd of refined products would be recognized only by the
Montello to Buffalo pipeline system.

access this pipeline system at its origin. Deliveries are made to our Willow
Grove, Pennsylvania and Piscataway and Newark, New Jersey terminals, as well as
into the Linden area via a 7-mile, 12-inch spur that serves terminals owned by
Kaneb, Kinder Morgan, ExxonMobil, Phillips, and Buckeye. Our Linden transfer
facility allows transfers between these third-party terminals while we make
main-line deliveries. In Newark, the pipeline system serves terminals owned by
Lukoil and Motiva. We interconnect with Buckeye's Laurel pipeline at the Twin
Oaks pump station using a 2-mile, 16-inch spur. Shippers on this pipeline
include Sunoco R&M, which accounted for 85% of the volumes transported for
2001, Motiva, Phillips, ExxonMobil, and Kaneb.

   Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to Linden, New Jersey.  The Philadelphia to
Linden refined product pipeline system consists of an 80-mile, 16-inch segment
called the Harbor pipeline, and an 8-mile, 12-inch segment. We own 100% of the
12-inch segment, and we operate the 16-inch segment, which is owned jointly, in
equal percentages, by El Paso, Phillips, and us. Each owner of the 16-inch
segment has a right to 60,000 bpd of capacity. The pipeline system is connected
at its origin to the El Paso refinery in Eagle Point, New Jersey, the Phillips
tank farm in Woodbury, New Jersey, the Gulf Oil terminal in Woodbury, and
Sunoco R&M's Philadelphia refinery. Sunoco R&M can also deliver product to the
Gulf Oil terminal while other parties are shipping product to New York.
Deliveries at Linden are made to a Phillips terminal, a Gulf Oil terminal,
CITGO terminals, and Buckeye's and El Paso's pipelines. This pipeline system is
also connected and makes deliveries into our Twin Oaks, Pennsylvania to Newark
pipeline, allowing us to transport refined product to our Piscataway and
Newark, New Jersey terminals. Sunoco R&M accounted for all of our allocated
share of the volumes transported on the 16-inch segment for 2001 and for all of
the volumes transported on the 12-inch segment for the same period.

   Interrefinery Pipelines.  We also own and lease to Sunoco R&M for a fixed
amount three bi-directional 18-mile pipelines and a four-mile pipeline spur
extending to the Philadelphia International Airport. One pipeline and the spur
transfer jet fuel from Sunoco R&M's Philadelphia and Marcus Hook refineries to
the Philadelphia International Airport. A second pipeline transfers LPGs to and
from Sunoco R&M's Philadelphia refinery and Marcus Hook storage facility. The
third pipeline transfers gasoline blending components and intermediate
feedstocks between Sunoco R&M's Marcus Hook and Philadelphia refineries. The
third pipeline is used to optimize refinery operations, such as gasoline
blending and unit turnaround scheduling.

   Crude Oil Pipeline.   We own and operate a 123-mile, 16-inch crude oil
pipeline that runs from Marysville, Michigan to Toledo, Ohio. It has a capacity
of 140,000 bpd. This pipeline receives crude oil from the Lakehead pipeline
system for delivery to Sunoco R&M and BP refineries located in Toledo, Ohio and
to MAP's Samaria, Michigan tank farm, which supplies its refinery in Detroit,
Michigan. Marysville is also a truck injection point for local production.
Sunoco R&M is the major shipper on the pipeline, accounting for 75% of the
volumes transported for 2001. Other shippers include BP and MAP. The pipeline
was built in 1967, and its tariffs are regulated by the FERC. This pipeline is
regularly maintained, and we believe that it is in good repair.

   The table below sets forth the average daily number of barrels of crude oil
transported through this crude oil pipeline in each of the years presented.

Explorer Pipeline

   The master partnership owns a 9.4% interest in Explorer Pipeline Company, a
joint venture that owns and operates a 1,413-mile common carrier refined
product pipeline. Other owners of Explorer include Equilon, MAP, ChevronTexaco,
Conoco, CITGO, and Phillips. The system originates from the refining centers of
Lake Charles, Louisiana and Beaumont, Port Arthur and Houston, Texas, and
extends to Chicago, Illinois, with delivery points in the Houston, Dallas/Fort
Worth, Tulsa, St. Louis, and Chicago areas. The pipeline system consists of a
12-inch segment from Lake Charles to Port Arthur, a 28-inch segment from Port
Arthur to Tulsa, and a 24-inch segment from Tulsa to Hammond, Illinois. The
28-inch segment has capacity of 560,000 bpd, and the 24-inch segment has
capacity of 350,000 bpd.

                                      71


<PAGE>

   We receive a quarterly cash dividend from Explorer that is commensurate with
the master partnership's ownership interest. For 2001, we received
approximately $4.3 million in cash dividends.

   The pipeline was built in 1972. Refined products transported on this system
primarily include gasoline, jet fuel, diesel fuel, and heating oil. Shippers on
the pipeline include most of the owners other than Sunoco, Inc. and several
non-affiliated customers. For the year ended December 31, 2001, interest owners
transporting refined products on the pipeline system accounted for
approximately 39% of operating revenues, and the top ten non-affiliated
customers accounted for approximately 38%. In 2000, the FERC approved
Explorer's application for market-based rates for all its tariffs.

   Volumes transported on this system have increased as the refining centers in
the Gulf Coast region have increased shipments to meet higher demand. Explorer
recently announced two expansions of the system's capacity by 130,000 bpd from
Port Arthur to Tulsa and by 100,000 bpd from Tulsa to Chicago. The expansions,
planned to be completed by early 2003, are currently projected to cost more
than $100 million. Based on current plans, we will not be required to make an
equity contribution to finance these capital expenditures. A member of our
management team serves on Explorer's board of directors.

   Explorer's primary competition is the TEPPCO pipeline, which transports
petroleum products from the Beaumont, Port Arthur and Houston, Texas refining
centers to Little Rock, Indianapolis, Chicago, and other markets along its
route. Another competitor is the Seaway pipeline, a large diameter pipeline
from Houston to Cushing, Oklahoma owned by BP and Phillips, which connects to
the Phillips pipeline system to Chicago. Centennial Pipeline, a 26-inch natural
gas pipeline owned by MAP, TEPPCO, and CMS Energy that is being converted into
a refined product pipeline, will also provide competition. Centennial
originates near Beaumont, Texas and terminates in southern Illinois.

Terminal Facilities

   Sunoco R&M accounted for approximately 59% of our Terminal Facilities
segment revenues for the year ended December 31, 2001.

Refined Product Terminals

   Our refined product terminals receive refined products from pipelines and
distribute them to Sunoco R&M and to third parties, who in turn deliver them to
end-users and retail outlets. Terminals play a key role in moving product to
the end-user market by providing the following services:

   . storage and inventory management;

   . distribution;

   . blending to achieve specified grades of gasoline; and

   . other ancillary services that include the injection of additives and
     filtering of jet fuel.

   Typically, our terminal facilities consist of multiple storage tanks and are
equipped with automated truck loading equipment that is available 24 hours a
day. This automated system provides for control of allocations, and credit and
carrier certification by remote input of data by our customers. In addition,
all of our terminals are equipped with truck loading racks capable of providing
automated blending to individual customer specifications.

   Our refined product terminals derive most of their revenues from
terminalling fees paid by customers. A fee is charged for transferring refined
products from the terminal to trucks, barges, or pipelines. In addition to
terminalling fees, we generate revenues by charging our customers fees for
blending, injecting additives, and filtering jet fuel. We generate the balance
of our revenues from other hydrocarbons handled for Sunoco R&M in Vanport,
Pennsylvania and Toledo, Ohio and for lubricants handled for Sunoco R&M in
Cleveland, Ohio. Sunoco R&M accounts for substantially all of our refined
product terminal revenues.

                                      72


<PAGE>

   The majority of our refined product terminals are supplied by our pipelines.
The remainder of our refined product terminals are supplied by third-party
pipelines. For 2001, gasoline represented approximately 68% of the total volume
of refined products distributed through our product terminals, while
distillates represented approximately 30%.

   The table below sets forth the total average throughput for our inland
refined product terminals in each of the years presented:

The Nederland Terminal

   The Texas Gulf Coast region is the major hub for petroleum refining in the
United States, representing approximately 40% of total United States daily
refining capacity and 66% of total United States refining capacity expansion
from 1990 to 1999. The growth in Gulf Coast refining capacity has resulted in
part from consolidation in the petroleum industry in order to achieve economies
of scale from operating larger refineries. According to the EIA, imports of
crude oil through the Gulf Coast increased 4.8% annually from 1995 to 2000. The
growth in refining capacity, including new heavy oil conversion projects, and
increased product flow from the Gulf Coast region to other regions has created
a need for additional transportation, storage, and distribution facilities on
the Gulf Coast. We believe that demand for imported crude oil and for petroleum
products refined in the Gulf Coast region will continue to increase.

   We own and operate the Nederland Terminal, which is located on the
Sabine-Neches waterway between Beaumont and Port Arthur, Texas. The Nederland
Terminal is a large marine terminal that provides inventory management,
storage, and distribution services for refiners and other large end-users of
crude oil. The Nederland Terminal receives, stores, and distributes crude oil,
feedstocks, lubricants, petrochemicals, and bunker oils (used for fueling ships
and other marine vessels). In addition, the Nederland Terminal also blends and
packages lubricants and is equipped with petroleum laboratory facilities.

   The Nederland Terminal has a total storage capacity of approximately 11.2
million barrels in 126 above-ground storage tanks with individual capacities of
up to 660,000 barrels. The terminal currently uses its aggregate storage
capacity as follows:

   . 10.3 million barrels for crude oil;

   . 400,000 barrels for feedstocks;

   . 272,000 barrels for lubricants;

   . 150,000 barrels for bunker oils; and

   . 80,000 barrels for petrochemicals.

<PAGE>

[Graphic E- Diagram depicting our Nederland Terminal and its pipeline
                                  connections.]



   The terminal can receive crude oil at each of its five ship docks and three
barge berths, which can accommodate any vessel capable of navigating the
40-foot freshwater draft of the Sabine-Neches Ship Channel. The five ship docks
are capable of receiving a total of 1.0 million bpd of crude oil. The terminal
can also receive crude oil through a number of pipelines, including the Equilon
pipeline from Louisiana, the DOE Big Hill pipeline, the DOE West Hackberry
pipeline, the EOTT Louisiana pipeline system, and our Western Pipeline System.
The DOE pipelines connect the Nederland Terminal to the United States Strategic
Petroleum Reserve's West Hackberry caverns at Hackberry, Louisiana and Big Hill
caverns near Winnie, Texas, which have an aggregate storage capacity of 370
million barrels. The Nederland Terminal's pipeline connections to major markets
in the Lake Charles, Beaumont, Port Arthur, Houston, and Midwest areas provide
customers with maximum flexibility and liquidity.

   We generate revenues at the Nederland Terminal primarily by providing
long-term and short-term, or spot, storage services and throughput capability
to a broad spectrum of customers such as ExxonMobil, Premcor, TotalFinaElf,
BASF/Fina, the DOE, Valero Energy Corporation, MAP, Sunoco R&M, and BP.
Approximately 88% of the terminal's total revenues in 2001 came from
unaffiliated third parties. We derive a significant portion of our Nederland
Terminal's revenues from long-term contracts, which enhance the stability and
predictability of its revenue stream. For 2001, 41% of the terminal's total
revenues were generated under contracts that expire in more than three years.
The terminal's long standing relationships with its spot-contract customers
generally lead to repeat business and the renewal of short-term contracts.

                                      76

   Our terminal is currently operating at or near capacity. We believe that the
strong demand for our marine terminal facilities results from our
cost-effective transportation services, efficiency, connectivity, and customer
service. Because the Nederland Terminal's docks are operating at approximately
50% capacity, we believe that we can take advantage of increasing demand for
terminalling and storage services by building additional tankage.

Fort Mifflin Terminal Complex

   We own and operate the Fort Mifflin Terminal Complex located on the Delaware
River in Philadelphia. Our Fort Mifflin Terminal Complex supplies Sunoco R&M's
Philadelphia refinery with all of its crude oil. These assets include the Fort
Mifflin Terminal, the Hog Island Wharf, the Darby Creek Tank Farm, and
connecting pipelines. We generate revenues from our Fort Mifflin Terminal
Complex by charging Sunoco R&M and others a storage fee based on tank capacity
and throughput. Substantially all of our revenues are derived from Sunoco R&M.

[GRAPHIC F- Diagram depicting our Fort Mifflin Terminal Complex and its location
relative to Sunoco R&M's Philadelphia and Marcus Hook refineries]



   Fort Mifflin Terminal.  Our Fort Mifflin Terminal consists of two ship docks
with 40-foot freshwater drafts and nine tanks with a total storage capacity of
570,000 barrels. Six 80,000-barrel tanks are used to store crude oil, and three
30,000-barrel tanks are used to provide fuel to ships. Two of the 80,000-barrel
tanks can be used to store refined products. This terminal also has a
connection with the Colonial Pipeline System.

   Crude oil and some refined products enter our Fort Mifflin Terminal
primarily from marine vessels on the Delaware River. One Fort Mifflin dock is
designed to handle crude oil from very large crude carrier-class tankers and
smaller crude oil vessels. Our other dock can accommodate only smaller crude
oil vessels.

   Hog Island Wharf.  Our Hog Island Wharf is located next to the Fort Mifflin
Terminal on the Delaware River. Our Hog Island Wharf receives crude oil via two
ship docks, one of which can accommodate crude oil tankers and smaller crude
oil vessels and the other of which can accommodate some smaller crude oil
vessels. Hog Island Wharf supplies our Darby Creek Tank Farm and Fort Mifflin
Terminal with crude oil. Crude oil from our Hog Island Wharf is delivered to
Sunoco R&M's Philadelphia refinery via our Darby Creek Tank Farm.

   Darby Creek Tank Farm.  Our Darby Creek Tank Farm is a primary crude oil
storage terminal for Sunoco R&M's Philadelphia refinery. This facility has 21
tanks with a total storage capacity of 2.4 million barrels. Darby Creek
receives crude oil from our Fort Mifflin Terminal and Hog Island Wharf via our
24-inch pipelines. The

                                      77


<PAGE>

tank farm then stores the crude oil and pumps it to the Philadelphia refinery
via our 16-inch pipeline. The multiple tanks in this storage facility provide
us with added flexibility in blending crude oil to achieve the optimal crude
oil slate for the Philadelphia refinery.

   Crude Oil and Refined Product Delivery.  Our Fort Mifflin Terminal Complex
includes a number of crude oil pipelines:

   . one 30-inch pipeline and one 16-inch pipeline that deliver crude oil from
     our Fort Mifflin Terminal to Sunoco R&M's Philadelphia refinery;

   . two 24-inch pipelines that deliver crude oil from our Hog Island Wharf to
     our Darby Creek Tank Farm;

   . one 16-inch pipeline that delivers crude oil from our Darby Creek Tank
     Farm to Sunoco R&M's Philadelphia refinery; and

   . one 30-inch bi-directional pipeline that delivers crude oil between our
     Hog Island Wharf and our Fort Mifflin Terminal.

   Our Fort Mifflin Terminal Complex also includes several pipelines that
deliver refined products to Sunoco R&M's Philadelphia refinery:

   . one 30-inch pipeline and one 16-inch pipeline that deliver refined
     products from our Fort Mifflin Terminal to Sunoco R&M's Philadelphia
     refinery for transportation on our Eastern Pipeline System; and

   . one dual diameter, 24- and 26-inch pipeline that delivers refined products
     from our Hog Island Wharf to Sunoco R&M's Philadelphia refinery.

   We charge Sunoco R&M a fee for each barrel delivered to its Philadelphia
refinery via our Fort Mifflin Terminal or our Darby Creek Tank Farm. The table
below sets forth the average daily number of barrels of crude oil and refined
products delivered to Sunoco R&M's Philadelphia refinery in each of the years
presented.

Marcus Hook Tank Farm

   The Marcus Hook Tank Farm stores substantially all of the refined products
that Sunoco R&M ships from its Marcus Hook refinery. This facility has 17 tanks
with a total storage capacity of approximately 2.0 million barrels. After
receipt of refined products from the Marcus Hook refinery, the tank farm either
stores them or delivers them to our Twin Oaks terminal or to the Twin Oaks pump
station, which supplies our Eastern Pipeline System.

The Inkster Terminal

   We own and operate the Inkster Terminal, a large terminal located in
Inkster, Michigan consisting of eight salt caverns with a total storage
capacity of 975,000 barrels. We use the Inkster Terminal's storage in
connection with our Toledo, Ohio to Sarnia, Canada pipeline system and for the
storage of LPGs from Sunoco R&M's Toledo refinery and from Canada. The terminal
can receive and ship LPGs in both directions at the same time and has a propane
truck loading rack that can load two trucks simultaneously. For the last five
years, Sunoco R&M has used the full capacity of our Inkster Terminal. Buckeye
has access to the terminal through our spur line to Joan Junction in Taylor,
Michigan.

   The Inkster Terminal enjoys a competitive advantage with respect to volumes
from Sunoco R&M's Toledo refinery due to the relatively short distance between
Toledo and the Inkster Terminal. The short distance helps keep the
transportation cost of LPG lower than to the Consumers Power Marysville
Underground Storage Terminal or to BP's storage facility at St. Clair,
Michigan. We own three pipelines running between Toledo and the Inkster
Terminal, which provide Sunoco R&M with additional flexibility.

Western Pipeline System

   Sunoco R&M accounted for approximately 66% of our Western Pipeline System
segment revenues for the year ended December 31, 2001.

Crude Oil Pipelines

   We own and operate 1,883 miles of crude oil trunk pipelines and 870 miles of
crude oil gathering lines in three primary geographic regions--Oklahoma, West
Texas, and the Texas Gulf Coast and East Texas region. We are the primary
shipper on our Western Pipeline System. We also deliver crude oil for Sunoco
R&M and for various third parties from points in Texas and Oklahoma. Delivery
points on our Western Pipeline System include Sunoco R&M's and Sinclair's Tulsa
refineries and the Gary-Williams refinery in Wynnewood, Oklahoma.

                                      79


<PAGE>

   Our pipelines also access several trading hubs, including the largest and
most significant trading hub for crude oil in the United States located in
Cushing, Oklahoma, as well as other trading hubs located in Colorado City and
Longview, Texas. Our crude oil pipelines also connect with other pipelines that
deliver crude oil to a number of third-party refineries. The majority of the
pipelines in our Western Pipeline System were constructed between 1925 and
1967. Our pipelines are subject to ongoing maintenance, and we believe they are
in good repair.

   In each geographic region, we have major crude oil trunk line systems that
ship crude oil across a number of different-sized trunk pipeline segments. The
following table details the mileage and volumes delivered for each major system
and, therefore, eliminates double counting of barrels transported across more

   Oklahoma

   We own and operate a large crude oil pipeline and gathering system in
Oklahoma. This system contains 693 miles of crude oil trunk pipelines and 459
miles of crude oil gathering lines. We have the ability to deliver all of the
crude oil gathered on our Oklahoma system to Cushing. Additionally, we make
deliveries on the Oklahoma system to:

   . Sunoco R&M's Tulsa refinery;

   . Sinclair's Tulsa refinery;

   . Gary-Williams' Wynnewood refinery; and

   . Conoco's pipeline to its Ponca City refinery.

   Throughput on our Oklahoma system for 2001 was 123,000 bpd. We generate
revenues on our Oklahoma system from tariffs paid by shippers utilizing our
transportation services. We file these tariffs with the Oklahoma Corporation
Commission and the FERC. We are the largest purchaser of crude oil from
producers in the state, and we are the primary shipper on our Oklahoma system.
Other significant shippers are Sunoco R&M and Sinclair, which ship primarily on
the Cushing to Tulsa segment.

   Our Oklahoma crude oil pipelines consist of two major systems, the Enid to
Tulsa system and the Velma to Tulsa system, and several smaller pipelines.

[GRAPHIC H- Map of Oklahoma depicting the Oklahoma portion of our Western
                               Pipeline System.]


   Enid, Oklahoma to Tulsa, Oklahoma.  The Enid to Tulsa crude oil pipeline
system originates in Northwestern Oklahoma, connects to the Cushing, Oklahoma
trading hub, and terminates in Tulsa at the Sunoco R&M and Sinclair refineries.
This system consists of seven major segments.

   Three segments deliver crude oil received from trucks and gathering systems
to Enid for further delivery on our system. Enid is a hub from which we
transport crude oil on our two east-bound pipelines to third-party pipelines
and refineries, and to the Cushing trading hub. The two east-bound pipelines
from Enid include our Enid to Morris pipeline, which connects Conoco's pipeline
to its Ponca City refinery, and our Enid to Cushing pipeline, which receives
crude oil from our Oklahoma City to Douglas segment and delivers crude oil to
our storage tanks at the Cushing trading hub.

<PAGE>

   Shippers utilizing our pipeline may also access the BP, Equilon, Plains All
American, and TEPPCO storage terminals in Cushing. Our Cushing to Tulsa
pipeline provides transportation services, under tariffs filed with the FERC,
from third-party terminals and our tanks in Cushing to the Sunoco R&M and
Sinclair refineries in Tulsa.

   Velma, Oklahoma to Tulsa, Oklahoma.  The Velma to Tulsa crude oil pipeline
system originates in Southwestern Oklahoma, moves eastward to the Gary-Williams
refinery at Wynnewood, and terminates at the Sunoco R&M and Sinclair refineries
in Tulsa. This system consists of seven major segments.

   The Velma to Eola, Eola to Maysville, and Eola to Wynnewood segments are
used to transport crude oil from trucks and gathering systems owned by us and
third parties to Gary-Williams' Wynnewood refinery and to our pipeline that
delivers to Cushing and Sunoco R&M's Tulsa refinery. The Maysville to Seminole,
Seminole to Bad Creek, Fitts to Bad Creek, and Bad Creek to Tulsa pipelines are
primarily used to transport crude oil to the Sunoco R&M and Sinclair refineries
in Tulsa. These pipelines are supplied by our gathering systems and trucks, as
well as EOTT and STG gathering lines. We ship substantially all of the volumes
on these pipelines.

   Other Oklahoma Pipelines.  Our other Oklahoma pipelines include the Tulsa to
Cushing segment that transports lube extracted feedstock from Sunoco R&M's
Tulsa refinery to Cushing for ultimate delivery by third- party pipelines to
other refineries for further processing. Our Barnsdall to Tulsa segment
receives crude oil gathered by our trucks for shipment to Sunoco R&M's Tulsa
refinery.

   West Texas

   We own and operate approximately 820 miles of crude oil trunk pipelines and
258 miles of crude oil gathering lines in West and North Central Texas. We make
deliveries on our West Texas system to:

   . a Valero, L.P. pipeline at Dixon, Texas that delivers crude oil to Valero
     Energy Corporation's refinery in McKee, Texas;

   . a Conoco pipeline at South Bend, Texas that makes deliveries to Conoco's
     Ponca City refinery;

   . a TEPPCO pipeline at South Bend that makes deliveries to Gary-Williams'
     Wynnewood refinery;

   . the West Texas Gulf pipeline at Tye and Colorado City, Texas that connects
     to Mid-Valley pipeline in Longview, Texas, which makes deliveries to
     Sunoco R&M's Toledo refinery and other Midwest refineries; and

   . other third-party pipelines at Colorado City that deliver crude oil to
     Sunoco R&M's Tulsa and Toledo refineries, among others.

   Throughput on this system during 2001 was 79,125 bpd. We were the shipper of
substantially all of these volumes. We generate revenues in West Texas from
tariffs paid by shippers utilizing our transportation services. We file these
tariffs with the Texas Railroad Commission.

                                      84


<PAGE>

[GRAPHIC I- Map of Texas depicting the West Texas portion of our Western
Pipeline System.]



   Our West Texas pipelines consist of the three following systems:

   Jameson and Salt Creek, Texas to Colorado City, Texas.  The Jameson and Salt
Creek to Colorado City crude oil pipeline system consists of two pipeline
segments. Crude oil is gathered or trucked into this system and transported
from Jameson to Colorado City, or from Salt Creek to Colorado City, where it
can be delivered into BP, Basin, ChevronTexaco, EOTT, or West Texas Gulf
pipelines. These connections allow us to deliver crude oil to Sunoco R&M's
Tulsa and Toledo refineries and other unaffiliated third-party destinations.

   Hearne, Texas to Hawley, Texas.  The Hearne to Hawley system is comprised of
seven pipeline segments. The two segments delivering into Comyn, Texas are
supplied with crude oil from our trucks, third-party trucks, and pipelines,
including the Genesis, Koch, and Plains All American pipelines located in
Hearne. From Comyn, crude oil can be shipped to:

   . the West Texas Gulf pipeline at Tye;

   . the Conoco and TEPPCO pipelines at South Bend; or

   . our pipeline in Hawley.

                                      85


<PAGE>

   At Tye, we have tankage and a bi-directional connection with the West Texas
Gulf pipeline that allows us to receive and deliver crude oil.

   Hawley, Texas to Dixon, Texas.  On the Hawley to Dixon system, we receive
crude oil from the following sources:

   . our Hearne to Hawley system, including West Texas Gulf's system through
     Tye, Texas;

   . Plains All American and Equilon pipeline interconnections; and

   . truck injection locations and pipeline-connected lease gathering sites.

   We deliver this crude oil to Dixon, where we connect with the Valero, L.P.
pipeline that delivers crude oil to the Valero Energy Corporation refinery at
McKee. Crude oil received from our Hearne to Hawley system accounts for a
majority of the volumes transported on this system.

   Texas Gulf Coast and East Texas

   Our Texas Gulf Coast and East Texas pipeline system includes 370 miles of
crude oil trunk pipelines and 153 miles of crude oil gathering lines that
extend between the Texas Gulf Coast region near Beaumont and Mt. Belvieu, Texas
and the East Texas field near Longview, Texas. We transport multiple grades of
crude oil, including foreign imports, and other refinery and petrochemical
feedstocks, such as condensate and naphtha, on these pipelines. We receive
crude oil for these systems from other pipelines, our Nederland Terminal, our
trucks, third-party trucks, and our pipeline gathering systems. This system
provides access to major delivery points with interconnecting pipelines in
Texas at Longview, Sour Lake, and Nederland.

   Throughput on this system for 2001 was 61,970 bpd. We generate revenues from
tariffs paid by shippers utilizing our transportation services. These tariffs
are filed with the Texas Railroad Commission and the FERC. We are the primary
shipper on the Texas Gulf Coast and East Texas system. Sunoco R&M ships on the
Nederland to Longview segment, which connects with the Mid-Valley pipeline for
deliveries to Sunoco R&M's Toledo refinery.

<PAGE>

[GRAPHIC J- Map of East Texas depicting the Texas Gulf Coast and East Texas
portion of our Western Pipeline System.]



   Our Texas Gulf Coast and East Texas system consists of these pipelines:

   Seabreeze and Orange, Texas to Nederland, Texas.  The Seabreeze and Orange
to Nederland crude oil pipeline system consists of two pipelines:

   . a bi-directional 28-mile pipeline from Seabreeze to Nederland; and

   . an 11-mile pipeline from Orange to Nederland.

   The Seabreeze pipeline transports condensate received from TransTexas'
Winnie, Texas plant and by truck to our Nederland Terminal. The Seabreeze
pipeline also transports naphtha for BASF/Fina from our Nederland Terminal to
the TEPPCO pipeline for delivery to BASF/Fina's new steam cracker in Port
Arthur. Crude oil gathered or trucked to the Orange pipeline is transported to
our Nederland Terminal for delivery to a number of destinations.

   Nederland, Texas to Longview, Texas.  The Nederland to Longview pipeline
transports primarily foreign crude oil from our Nederland Terminal to the
240,000 bpd Mid-Valley pipeline in Longview, Texas. Other connections in the
Longview area include BP's pipeline from Longview to Cushing, Oklahoma,
McMurrey's pipeline that supplies Crown Central's Tyler, Texas refinery, and
ExxonMobil's pipeline that delivers to Wichita Falls, Texas and Patoka,
Illinois.

                                      87


<PAGE>

   Baytown, Texas to Nederland, Texas.  The Baytown to Nederland crude oil
pipeline passes through Sour Lake, Texas where it makes deliveries to our
Nederland to Longview pipeline, the CITGO tank farm and pipeline that supplies
CITGO's Lake Charles, Louisiana refinery. The system also delivers to the
ExxonMobil Baytown, Texas refinery.

   Thomas, Texas to Longview, Texas.  The Thomas to Longview crude oil pipeline
originates in Thomas, Texas and makes deliveries to all of the connections in
Longview, Texas described above. The pipeline receives crude oil from our
pipeline gathering system in the East Texas field.

Crude Oil Acquisition and Marketing

   In addition to receiving tariff revenues for transporting crude oil on our
Western Pipeline System, we also generate revenues through our crude oil
acquisition and marketing operations, primarily in Oklahoma and Texas. These
activities include:

   . purchasing crude oil from producers at the wellhead and in bulk from
     aggregators at major pipeline interconnections and trading locations;

   . transporting crude oil on our pipelines and trucks or, when necessary or
     cost effective, pipelines or trucks owned and operated by third parties;
     and

   . marketing crude oil to refiners or resellers.

   The marketing of crude oil is complex and requires detailed knowledge of the
crude oil market and a familiarity with a number of factors, including types of
crude oil, individual refinery demand for specific grades of crude oil, area
market price structures for different grades of crude oil, location of
customers, availability of transportation facilities, timing, and customers'
costs (including storage). We sell our crude oil to major integrated oil
companies, independent refiners, including Sunoco R&M for its Tulsa and Toledo
refineries, and other resellers in various types of sale and exchange
transactions, at market prices for terms generally ranging from one month to
one year.

   We enter into contracts with producers at market prices generally for a term
of one year or less, with a majority of the transactions on a 30-day renewable
basis. For 2001, we purchased approximately 181,000 bpd from approximately
3,300 producers from approximately 33,000 leases.

   Crude Oil Lease Purchases and Exchanges

   In a typical producer's operation, crude oil flows from the wellhead to a
separator where the petroleum gases are removed. After separation, the producer
treats the crude oil to remove water, sand, and other contaminants and then
moves it to an on-site storage tank. When the tank is full, the producer
contacts our field personnel to purchase and transport the crude oil to market.
The crude oil in producers' tanks is then either delivered to our pipeline or
transported via truck to our pipeline or a third party's pipeline. Our truck
fleet generally performs the trucking service.

   We also enter into exchange agreements to enhance margins throughout the
acquisition and marketing process. When opportunities arise to increase our
margin or to acquire a grade of crude oil that more nearly matches our delivery
requirement or the preferences of our refinery customers, we exchange physical
crude oil with third parties. Generally,we enter into exchanges to acquire
crude oil of a desired quality in exchange for a common grade crude oil or to
acquire crude oil at locations that are closer to our end markets, thereby
reducing transportation costs.

                                      88

   Our business practice is generally to purchase only crude oil for which we
have a corresponding sale agreement for physical delivery of crude oil to a
third party or a Sunoco R&M refinery. Through this process, we seek to maintain
a position that is substantially balanced between crude oil purchases and
future delivery obligations. We do not acquire and hold crude oil futures
contracts or enter into other derivative contracts for the purpose of
speculating on crude oil prices.

</TABLE>


   Market Conditions

   Market conditions impact our sales and marketing strategies. During periods
when demand for crude oil is weak, the market for crude oil is often in
contango, meaning that the price of crude oil in a given month is less than the
price of crude oil for delivery in a subsequent month. In a contango market,
storing crude oil is favorable because storage owners at major trading
locations can simultaneously purchase production at low current prices for
storage and sell at higher prices for future delivery. When there is a higher
demand than supply of crude oil in the near term, the market is backwardated,
meaning that the price of crude oil in a given month exceeds the price of crude
oil for delivery in a subsequent month. A backwardated market has a positive
impact on marketing margins because crude oil marketers can continue to
purchase crude oil from producers at a fixed premium to posted prices while
selling crude oil at a higher premium to such prices.

   Producer Services

   Crude oil purchasers who buy from producers compete on the basis of
competitive prices and highly responsive services. Through our team of crude
oil purchasing representatives, we maintain ongoing relationships with more
than 3,300 producers. We believe that our ability to offer competitive pricing
and high-quality field and administrative services to producers is a key factor
in our ability to maintain volumes of

                                      89


<PAGE>

purchased crude oil and to obtain new volumes. Field services include efficient
gathering capabilities, availability of trucks, willingness to construct
gathering pipelines where economically justified, timely pickup of crude oil
from storage tanks at the lease or production point, accurate measurement of
crude oil volumes received, avoidance of spills, and effective management of
pipeline deliveries. Accounting and other administrative services include
securing division orders (statements from interest owners affirming the
division of ownership in crude oil purchased by us), providing statements of
the crude oil purchased each month, disbursing production proceeds to interest
owners, and calculating and paying production taxes on behalf of interest
owners. In order to compete effectively, we must maintain records of title and
division order interests in an accurate and timely manner for purposes of
making prompt and correct payment of crude oil production proceeds, together
with the correct payment of all production taxes associated with these proceeds.

   Credit with Customers

   When we market crude oil, we must determine the amount of any line of credit
to be extended to a customer. Since our typical sales transactions can involve
tens of thousands of barrels of crude oil, the risk of nonpayment and
nonperformance by customers is a major consideration in our business. We
believe our sales are made to creditworthy entities or entities with adequate
credit support. Credit review and analysis are also integral to our lease
purchases. Payment for substantially all of the monthly lease production is
sometimes made to the operator of the lease. The operator, in turn, is
responsible for the correct payment and distribution of such production
proceeds to the proper parties. In these situations, we must determine whether
the operator has sufficient financial resources to make such payments and
distributions and to indemnify and defend us in the event a third party brings
a protest, action, or complaint in connection with the ultimate distribution of
production proceeds by the operator.

   Crude Oil Trucking

   We operate 124 crude oil truck unloading facilities in Oklahoma, Texas, and
New Mexico, of which 89 are on our pipeline system and 35 are on third-party
pipeline systems. We also own and operate a one-mile crude oil gathering line
in New Mexico, which is associated with our crude oil trucking operations
there. We employ 292 crude oil truck drivers and own 143 crude oil transport
trucks. The crude oil truck drivers pick up crude oil at production lease sites
and transport it to various truck unloading facilities on our pipelines and on
third-party pipelines.

Other Business Opportunities

   Although we do not currently engage in business unrelated to the
transportation or storage of crude oil and refined products and the other
businesses described above, we may in the future consider and make acquisitions
in other business areas.

Pipeline and Terminal Control Operations

   All of our refined products and crude oil pipelines are operated via
satellite, microwave, and frame relay communication systems from central
control rooms located in Philadelphia and Tulsa. The Philadelphia control
center primarily monitors and controls our refined product pipelines, and the
Tulsa control center primarily monitors and controls our crude oil pipelines.
The Philadelphia control center has a backup control center at our Montello,
Pennsylvania pipeline facility located approximately 50 miles from
Philadelphia. The Nederland Terminal has its own control center.

   The control centers operate with modern, state-of-the-art System Control and
Data Acquisition, or SCADA, systems. Our control centers are equipped with
computer systems designed to continuously monitor real time operational data,
including refined product and crude oil throughput, flow rates, and pressures.
In addition, the control centers monitor alarms and throughput balances. The
control centers operate remote pumps, motors,

                                      90


<PAGE>

engines, and valves associated with the delivery of refined products and crude
oil. The computer systems are designed to enhance leak-detection capabilities,
sound automatic alarms if operational conditions outside of pre-established
parameters occur, and provide for remote-controlled shutdown of pump stations
on the pipelines. Pump stations and meter-measurement points along the
pipelines are linked by satellite or telephone communication systems for remote
monitoring and control, which reduces our requirement for full-time on-site
personnel at most of these locations.

Safety and Maintenance

   We perform preventive and normal maintenance on all of our pipeline systems
and make repairs and replacements when necessary or appropriate. We also
conduct routine and required inspections of our pipelines and other assets as
required by code or regulation. We inject corrosion inhibitors into our crude
oil mainlines to help control internal corrosion. Cleaning and de-waxing pigs
are also run through our crude oil pipelines to help prohibit internal
corrosion. External coatings and impressed current cathodic protection systems
are used to protect against external corrosion. We conduct all cathodic
protection work in accordance with National Association of Corrosion Engineers
standards. We continually monitor, test, and record the effectiveness of these
corrosion inhibiting systems.

   We monitor the structural integrity of selected segments of our pipeline
systems through a program of periodic internal inspections using both "dent
pigs" and electronic "smart pigs." We follow these inspections with a review of
the data, and we make repairs as required to ensure the integrity of the
pipeline. We have initiated a risk-based approach to prioritizing the pipeline
segments for future smart pig runs or other approved integrity testing methods.
This will ensure that the pipelines that have the greatest risk potential
receive the highest priority in being scheduled for inspections or pressure
tests for integrity.

   We started our smart pigging program in 1988. Beginning in 2002, the DOT
requires smart pigging or other integrity testing of all DOT-regulated crude
oil and refined product pipelines. This requirement will be phased in over a
five-year period. To date, we have inspected 80% of the total DOT-regulated
miles of our refined product pipelines and 35% of the total DOT-regulated miles
of our crude oil pipelines. We anticipate spending $8.0 million per year for
each of the next five years to comply with these regulations. Please read
''Certain Relationships and Related Transactions--Omnibus Agreement.''

   Maintenance facilities containing equipment for pipe repairs, spare parts,
and trained response personnel are strategically located along the pipelines.
Employees participate in simulated spill deployment exercises on a regular
basis. They also participate in actual spill response boom deployment exercises
in both planned and unannounced spill scenarios in accordance with Oil
Pollution Act of 1990 requirements. We believe that all of our pipelines have
been constructed and are maintained in all material respects in accordance with
applicable federal, state, and local laws and the regulations and standards
prescribed by the American Petroleum Institute, the DOT, and accepted industry
practice.

   Sunoco R&M will, at its expense, complete for the Darby Creek and Marcus
Hook Tank Farms certain tank maintenance and inspection projects now in
progress or expected to be completed within one year from the closing of the
master partnership's initial public offering. Sunoco R&M estimates total costs
to complete these projects will be approximately $4.0 million.

   At our terminals, tanks designed for gasoline storage are equipped with
internal or external floating roofs that minimize emissions and prevent
potentially flammable vapor accumulation between fluid levels and the roof of
the tank. Our terminal facilities have facility response plans, spill
prevention and control plans, and other plans and programs to respond to
emergencies.

   Many of our terminal loading racks are protected with water deluge systems
activated by vapor sensors, heat sensors, or an emergency switch. Several of
our terminals are also protected by foam systems that are activated in

                                      91


<PAGE>

case of fire. Our Inkster Terminal is our only terminal that stores and loads
propane. Our propane truck loading rack is protected against fire hazards with
a deluge system. This system automatically activates with heat sensors in the
event of a fire. All of our terminals are subject to participation in a
comprehensive environmental management program to assure compliance with
applicable air, solid waste, and wastewater regulations.

Competition

   As a result of our physical integration with Sunoco R&M's refineries and our
contractual relationship with Sunoco, Inc. pursuant to the omnibus agreement
and Sunoco R&M pursuant to the pipelines and terminals storage and throughput
agreement, we believe that we will not face significant competition for crude
oil transported to the Philadelphia, Toledo, and Tulsa refineries, or refined
products transported from the Philadelphia, Marcus Hook, and Toledo refineries,
particularly during the term of the pipelines and terminals storage and
throughput agreement with Sunoco R&M. See "--Our Relationship with Sunoco,
Inc.--Pipelines and Terminals Storage and Throughput Agreement with Sunoco R&M"
and "Certain Relationships and Related Transactions--Omnibus Agreement." For
the year ended December 31, 2001, Sunoco R&M accounted for approximately 66% of
our combined revenues.

Eastern Pipeline System

   Nearly all of our Eastern Pipeline System is directly linked to Sunoco R&M's
refineries. Sunoco R&M constructed or acquired these assets as the most
cost-effective means to access raw materials and distribute refined products.
Generally, pipelines are the lowest cost method for long-haul, overland
movement of refined products. Therefore, our most significant competitors for
large volume shipments in the area served by our Eastern Pipeline System are
other pipelines. We believe that high capital requirements, environmental
considerations, and the difficulty in acquiring rights-of-way and related
permits make it hard for other companies to build competing pipelines in areas
served by our pipelines. As a result, competing pipelines are likely to be
built only in those cases in which strong market demand and attractive tariff
rates support additional capacity in an area.

   Although it is unlikely that a pipeline system comparable in size and scope
to our Eastern Pipeline System will be built in the foreseeable future, new
pipelines (including pipeline segments that connect with existing pipeline
systems, such as those operated by Colonial, Buckeye, ExxonMobil, and Inland)
could be built to effectively compete with us in particular locations.

   In addition, we face competition from trucks that deliver product in a
number of areas we serve. While their costs may not be competitive for longer
hauls or large volume shipments, trucks compete effectively for incremental and
marginal volumes in many areas we serve. The availability of truck
transportation places a significant competitive constraint on our ability to
increase our tariff rates.

Terminal Facilities

   Historically, except for our Nederland Terminal, essentially all of the
throughput at our terminal facilities has come from Sunoco R&M. Under the terms
of our pipelines and terminals storage and throughput agreement, we will
continue to receive a significant portion of the throughput at these facilities
from Sunoco R&M.

   Our 32 inland refined product terminals compete with other independent
terminal operators as well as integrated oil companies on the basis of terminal
location, price, versatility, and services provided. Our competition primarily
comes from integrated petroleum companies, refining and marketing companies,
independent terminal companies, and distribution companies with marketing and
trading arms.

   The Inkster Terminal's primary competition comes from the Marysville
Underground Storage Terminal, or MUST, which is owned by Consumers Power. MUST
is a third-party facility located in Marysville, Michigan

                                      92


<PAGE>

with approximately 6 million barrels of underground storage. This facility
serves the refining markets in Sarnia, Canada and Toledo, Ohio and has
extensive rail car loading and unloading operations, which could be used by
other refineries. In addition to MUST, MAP operates a similar LPG storage
facility in Trenton, Michigan, primarily serving its refinery in Detroit,
Michigan. BP also operates a similar facility in St. Clair, Michigan, as well
as one in Windsor, Canada that is served by pipeline and rail connections from
the Sarnia refineries. The Inkster terminal enjoys a competitive advantage with
respect to volumes from Sunoco R&M's Toledo refinery due to the relatively
short distance between Toledo and the Inkster Terminal. We own three additional
pipelines running between Toledo and the Inkster Terminal, which provide Sunoco
R&M with additional flexibility.

   The primary competitors for the Nederland Terminal are its refinery
customers' docks and terminal facilities, and the Unocal terminal and the Oil
Tanking terminal, both located in Beaumont. We believe the Nederland Terminal
has superior docking capabilities and tankage facilities, and is better
connected to supply and distribution pipelines than these competing terminals.

Western Pipeline System

   Our Western Pipeline System faces competition from a number of major oil
companies and smaller entities. Pipeline competition among common carrier
pipelines is based primarily on transportation charges, access to producing
areas, and demand for the crude oil by end users. We believe that high capital
costs make it unlikely for other companies to build competing crude oil
pipeline systems in areas served by our pipelines. Crude oil purchasing and
marketing competitive factors include price and contract flexibility, quantity
and quality of services, and accessibility to end markets. The principal
competitors of the Western Pipeline System are EOTT, Plains All American,
Conoco, Seminole Trading and Gathering, and TEPPCO.

Retained Assets

   We do not expect any significant competition from Sunoco, Inc. utilizing the
retained assets described below under "--Pipeline, Terminalling, and Storage
Assets Retained by Sunoco, Inc."

Sunoco R&M's Refining and Marketing Operations

   Although we do not own or operate any refining or marketing assets, our
pipeline systems are located within Sunoco R&M's refining and marketing supply
chain. Sunoco, Inc., through its subsidiaries, is principally a petroleum

Refineries

   Our pipelines deliver crude oil to and transport refined products from
Sunoco R&M's four refineries.

   Philadelphia

   The Philadelphia refinery can process 330,000 bpd of crude oil and is the
largest refinery in the Northeast United States. For 2001, its total input to
crude oil processing units was 309,400 bpd, all of which was supplied

                                      93


<PAGE>

by our Fort Mifflin Terminal Complex. The refinery processes predominantly
sweet crude oils from foreign sources. The refinery produces primarily gasoline
(including reformulated and premium grades), middle distillates, residual fuel,
and petrochemical feedstocks. For 2001, 64% of the refined products produced in
the Philadelphia refinery were distributed through our refined product
pipelines or our refined product terminals.

   The table below sets forth the refinery's total input to crude oil
processing units in each of the years presented.

Marketing

   We believe that our pipeline, terminalling, and storage assets are
well-positioned for future growth because these assets are located in
attractive market regions and many of these assets are associated with Sunoco
R&M, a significant participant in those market regions. We believe that the
population growth and the growth in demand for refined products in the
Northeast and Midwest United States will lead to increased throughput.

   The table below sets forth total branded sales by Sunoco R&M in all states
in each of the years presented. Middle distillates include high- and low-sulfur
diesel, heating oil, and kerosene.

   Sunoco R&M's convenience stores are located principally in Pennsylvania, New
York, Massachusetts, Ohio, Michigan, and Florida. These stores supplement sales
of fuel products with a broad mix of high-margin merchandise such as groceries,
fast foods, and beverages. Sunoco R&M intends to grow its convenience store
business through acquisitions, new site construction, and redesign of
traditional gasoline outlets in an effort to reduce its dependence on gasoline
margins. Following this strategy, in 2001, Sunoco R&M acquired from The

                                      95


<PAGE>

Coastal Corporation 316 direct retail sites and supply contracts with 24
Coastal distributors for 157 distributor sites located in eight Eastern states
with the largest concentration in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Virginia, and
Florida.

   In the fourth quarter of 2000, Sunoco R&M entered into an agreement with
Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. that will enable Sunoco R&M to build and operate retail
gasoline outlets on sites at selected existing and future Wal-Mart locations in
nine Eastern states. During 2001, Sunoco R&M built 13 of these facilities and
expects to build approximately 50 additional facilities during 2002 at an
estimated cost of $40 million and to add up to 100 new sites per year in
subsequent years. In addition to gasoline, these sites will offer customers a
limited selection of convenience store merchandise. In conjunction with
Wal-Mart, Sunoco R&M is developing a new brand that is planned for use at these
facilities. This agreement will enable Sunoco R&M to market significantly more
of its own gasoline production directly to the consumer and to take further
advantage of our refined product pipelines and terminals in the region.

Inactive Assets

   We own approximately 367 miles of inactive trunk lines. Of those inactive
trunk lines, approximately
217 miles are located in our Oklahoma pipeline system, approximately 117 miles
are located in our West Texas pipeline system and approximately 32 miles are
located in our Texas Gulf Coast and East Texas pipeline system. We are
evaluating placing some of these pipelines back in service in the future either
for the transportation of crude oil or as alternative service pipelines.

Pipeline, Terminalling, and Storage Assets Retained by Sunoco, Inc.

   At the closing of the initial public offering of the master partnership,
affiliates of Sunoco, Inc. transfered to us most of the pipeline, terminalling,
storage, and related assets that support Sunoco R&M's refinery operations.
Sunoco, Inc. or its affiliates have retained the assets described below because
they are either interests in crude oil pipelines that may not provide
consistent revenues and cash flows or are inactive.

Assets That May Not Provide Consistent Revenues and Cash Flows

   . Mid-Valley Pipeline.  A subsidiary of Sunoco, Inc. owns a 55% interest in
     the Mid-Valley Pipeline Company (a 50% voting interest), which owns and
     operates a 994-mile crude oil pipeline from Longview, Texas to Samaria,
     Michigan. For 2001, Mid-Valley supplied 46% of the crude oil refined by
     Sunoco, Inc.'s Toledo, Ohio refinery. The Mid-Valley pipeline serves a
     number of refineries in the Midwest United States. Because of our concern
     that the closure of one or more of these refineries could result in a
     material decline in the revenues and cash flows of Mid-Valley, we elected
     not to acquire Sunoco, Inc.'s interest in Mid-Valley. We believe that
     Mid-Valley could be converted to a refined product pipeline and we will
     continue to evaluate its future prospects.

   . West Texas Gulf Pipeline.  A subsidiary of Sunoco, Inc. owns a 17%
     interest in West Texas Gulf Pipeline Company, which owns and operates a
     581-mile crude oil pipeline from Colorado City, Texas and Nederland, Texas
     to Longview, Texas. West Texas Gulf supplies crude oil to Mid-Valley
     Pipeline. We elected not to acquire Sunoco, Inc.'s interest in this
     pipeline for the reasons discussed above.

   . Mesa Pipeline.  A subsidiary of Sunoco, Inc. owns an undivided 6% interest
     in the Mesa pipeline, an 80-mile crude oil pipeline from Midland, Texas to
     Colorado City. Mesa Pipeline connects to West Texas Gulf's pipeline, which
     supplies crude oil to Mid-Valley. We elected not to acquire Sunoco, Inc.'s
     interest in this pipeline for the reasons discussed above.

   . Inland Pipeline.  A subsidiary of Sunoco, Inc. owns a 10% interest in
     Inland Corporation, which owns and operates a 611-mile refined products
     pipeline from Lima and Toledo, Ohio to Canton, Cleveland, Columbus, and
     Dayton, Ohio. This pipeline transports refined products for Sunoco R&M
     from its Toledo,

                                      96


<PAGE>

     Ohio refinery and for the other owners. The Inland pipeline is a private
     intrastate pipeline that is operated at cost by the shipper-owners and
     does not generate profits to its owners. As a result, it was not included
     in the assets transferred to us.

   In the omnibus agreement, Sunoco, Inc. granted us a ten-year option to
purchase its interest in any of the preceding assets for fair market value at
the time of purchase. Sunoco, Inc's interests in these assets are subject to
agreements with the other interest owners that include, among other things,
consent requirements and rights of first refusal that may be triggered upon
certain transfers. The exercise of the option with respect to any of these
assets will be subject to the terms and conditions of those agreements, which
may or may not require consents or trigger rights of first refusal, depending
on the facts and circumstances existing at the time of the option exercise. We
have no current intention to purchase these assets.

Assets That Are Inactive

   . A subsidiary of Sunoco, Inc. owns an idled 370-mile, 6-inch refined
     product pipeline from Icedale, Pennsylvania to Cleveland, Ohio.

   . A subsidiary of Sunoco, Inc. owns various crude oil pipelines and
     gathering systems in Louisiana, Oklahoma, and Texas that are no longer
     used because of a lack of crude oil supply.

   . A subsidiary of Sunoco, Inc. owns various refined product pipelines in the
     Northeast and Midwest that are no longer used because they are no longer
     economical to operate. Most of these lines have been idle for several
     years.

   . A subsidiary of Sunoco, Inc. owns two inactive refined product terminals
     in Maryland and Pennsylvania. Sunoco, Inc. idled these terminals because
     they were not economical to operate.

   Sunoco, Inc. granted us a ten-year option to purchase the pipeline from
Icedale, Pennsylvania to Cleveland, Ohio for fair market value at the time of
purchase. We have no current intention to purchase this pipeline.

   Both of the ten-year option agreements described above are contained in the
omnibus agreement that the master partnership entered into with Sunoco, Inc.,
Sunoco R&M and us. In accordance with this agreement, if we decide to exercise
our option to purchase any of the assets described above, we must provide
written notice to Sunoco, Inc. setting forth the fair market value we propose
to pay for the asset. If Sunoco, Inc. does not agree with our proposed fair
market value, we and Sunoco, Inc. will appoint a mutually agreed-upon,
nationally recognized investment banking firm to determine the fair market
value of the asset. Once the investment bank submits its valuation of the
asset, we will have the right, but not the obligation, to purchase the asset at
the price determined by the investment bank.

Rate Regulation

   General Interstate Regulation.  Our interstate common carrier pipeline
operations are subject to rate regulation by the FERC under the Interstate
Commerce Act. The Interstate Commerce Act requires that tariff rates for oil
pipelines, a category that includes crude oil, petroleum products, and
petrochemical pipelines (crude oil, petroleum product, and petrochemical
pipelines are referred to collectively as "petroleum pipelines" in this
prospectus), be just and reasonable and non-discriminatory. The Interstate
Commerce Act permits challenges to proposed new or changed rates by protest,
and challenges to rates that are already on file and in effect by complaint.
Upon the appropriate showing, a successful complainant may obtain damages or
reparations for generally up to two years prior to the filing of a complaint.

   The FERC is authorized to suspend the effectiveness of a new or changed
tariff rate for a period of up to seven months and to investigate the rate. The
FERC may also permit a new or changed tariff rate to go into effect on at least
one days' notice, subject to refund and investigation. If upon the completion
of an investigation the

                                      97


<PAGE>

FERC finds that the rate is unlawful, it may require the pipeline operator to
refund to shippers, with interest, any difference between the rates the FERC
determines to be lawful and the rates under investigation. The FERC will order
the pipeline to change its rates prospectively to the lawful level. Interstate
petroleum pipeline rates may be defended on the basis of the pipeline's cost of
service, although, as discussed below, rates may also be justified based upon
the FERC's indexing methodology, or deemed "grandfathered," under the Energy
Policy Act. Settlement rates, which are rates that have been agreed to by all
shippers, are permitted, and market-based rates may be permitted in certain
circumstances.

   From 1906 until October 1, 1977, the Interstate Commerce Commission, rather
than the FERC, was charged with exercising regulatory authority over petroleum
pipeline rates. During the latter years of this period, the Interstate Commerce
Commission determined pipeline rates on a "valuation" methodology under which
pipeline rate base was calculated on "fair value" rather than on depreciated
original cost. The valuation rate base approach was applied by the Interstate
Commerce Commission until 1977, when its oversight authority for petroleum
pipeline rates was transferred to the FERC. The FERC was then required by a
federal court to reevaluate its petroleum pipeline ratemaking methods.

   In 1985, the FERC issued an opinion in a case involving Williams Pipe Line
Co. (Opinion No. 154-B) which adopted the trended original cost methodology for
determining the justness and reasonableness of petroleum pipeline tariff rates.
The trended original cost methodology provides that in calculating a petroleum
pipeline's rate base, after a starting rate base has been determined, the
pipeline's rate base is to be:

   . increased by property additions at cost plus an amount equal to the equity
     portion of the rate base multiplied or "trended" by an inflation factor;
     and

   . decreased by property retirements and depreciation and amortization of the
     rate base write-ups reflecting inflation and amortization of the starting
     rate base write-up.

   The starting rate base must be determined for pipelines that previously were
regulated under the Interstate Commerce Commission valuation methodology in
order to provide a transition from the valuation methodology to the trended
original cost methodology. For these pipelines, a portion of the starting rate
base will continue to reflect reproduction costs in excess of the depreciated
original cost of the pipeline's assets. The Williams opinion provides that the
starting rate base is to be the sum of the following components:

   . the depreciated original cost of the carrier's property, multiplied by the
     ratio of debt to total capitalization;

   . the net depreciated reproduction cost based on the FERC reproduction cost
     rate base (as of 1983) derived under the Interstate Commerce Commission
     valuation methodology, multiplied by the ratio of equity to total
     capitalization; and

   . the original cost of land, the net book value of rights-of-way and allowed
     working capital.

   The difference between the starting rate base and the depreciated original
cost rate base is referred to as the starting rate base write-up. This write-up
is amortized over the useful life of the facilities. The Williams opinion
expressly provides that the use of a starting rate base in excess of the
original cost of the assets is subject to challenge by showing that the
investors in the carrier had not relied on the Interstate Commerce Commission
valuation rate base methodology. Some of our rates involve rate base components
built or acquired prior to 1983, and, if our rates were challenged, defending
these rates on a cost-of-service basis may require technical rate base
calculations.

   Index-Based Rates and Other Subsequent Developments.  In October 1992,
Congress passed the Energy Policy Act of 1992. The Energy Policy Act deemed
interstate petroleum pipeline rates in effect for the 365-day period ending on
the date of enactment of the Energy Policy Act, or that were in effect on the
365th day preceding enactment and had not been subject to complaint, protest,
or investigation during the 365-day period,

                                      98


<PAGE>

to be just and reasonable under the Interstate Commerce Act. These rates are
commonly referred to as "grandfathered rates." All of our interstate pipeline
rates were deemed just and reasonable and therefore are grandfathered under the
Energy Policy Act. The Energy Policy Act provides that the FERC may change
grandfathered rates upon complaints only under the following limited
circumstances:

   . a substantial change has occurred since enactment in either the economic
     circumstances or the nature of the services that were a basis for the rate;

   . the complainant was contractually barred from challenging the rate prior
     to enactment of the Energy Policy Act and filed the complaint within 30
     days of the expiration of the contractual bar; or

   . a provision of the tariff is unduly discriminatory or preferential.

   The Energy Policy Act further required the FERC to issue rules establishing
a simplified and generally applicable ratemaking methodology for interstate
petroleum pipelines and to streamline procedures in petroleum pipeline
proceedings. On October 22, 1993, the FERC responded to the Energy Policy Act
directive by issuing Order No. 561, which adopts a new indexing rate
methodology for interstate petroleum pipelines. Under the resulting
regulations, effective January 1, 1995, petroleum pipelines are able to change
their rates within prescribed ceiling levels that are tied to changes in the
Producer Price Index for Finished Goods, minus one percent. Rate increases made
under the index will be subject to protest, but the scope of the protest
proceeding will be limited to an inquiry into whether the portion of the rate
increase resulting from application of the index is substantially in excess of
the pipeline's increase in costs. The indexing methodology is applicable to any
existing rate, whether grandfathered or whether established after enactment of
the Energy Policy Act.

   In Order No. 561, the FERC said that as a general rule pipelines must
utilize the indexing methodology to change their rates. Indexing includes the
requirement that, in any year in which the index is negative, pipelines must
file to lower their rates if they would otherwise be above the reduced ceiling.
However, the pipeline is not required to reduce its rates below the level
deemed just and reasonable under the Energy Policy Act. The FERC further
indicated in Order No. 561, however, that it is retaining cost-of-service
ratemaking, market-based rates, and settlement rates as alternatives to the
indexing approach. A pipeline can follow a cost-of-service approach when
seeking to increase its rates above index levels (or when seeking to avoid
lowering rates to index levels) provided that the pipeline can establish that
there is a substantial divergence between the actual costs experienced by the
pipeline and the rate resulting from application of the index. A pipeline can
charge market-based rates if it establishes that it lacks significant market
power in the affected markets. In addition, a pipeline can establish rates
under settlement if agreed upon by all current shippers. As specified in Order
561 and subsequent decisions, a pipeline can seek to establish initial rates
for new services through a cost-of-service showing, by establishing that it
lacks significant market power in the affected markets, or through an agreement
between the pipeline and at least one shipper not affiliated with the pipeline
who intends to use the new service.

   The Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit affirmed Order No.
561, concluding that the general indexing methodology, along with the limited
exceptions to indexed rates, reasonably balances the FERC's dual
responsibilities of ensuring just and reasonable rates and streamlining
ratemaking through generally applicable procedures. The FERC indicated in Order
No. 561 that it would assess in 2000 how the rate-indexing method was
operating. The FERC issued a Notice of Inquiry on July 27, 2000 seeking
comments on whether to retain or to change the existing index. On December 14,
2000, the FERC issued an order concluding the initial review of the petroleum
pipeline pricing index. In this order, the FERC found that the existing index
has closely approximated the actual cost changes in the petroleum pipeline
industry and that use of the rate index continues to satisfy the mandates of
the Energy Policy Act. The Association of Oil Pipe Lines petitioned for
judicial review of that decision, arguing that the annual adjustment should be
based on the full producer price index, without the one percentage point
deduction. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit found
the FERC decision flawed in certain respects and remanded the matter to the
FERC for further consideration.

   Another development affecting petroleum pipeline ratemaking arose in Opinion
No. 397, involving a partnership operating a crude oil pipeline. In Opinion No.
397, the FERC concluded that there should not be a

                                      99


<PAGE>

corporate income tax allowance built into a petroleum pipeline's rates for
income attributable to noncorporate partners because those partners, unlike
corporate partners, do not pay a corporate income tax on partnership
distributions. Opinion No. 397 was affirmed by the FERC on rehearing in May
1996. The parties subsequently settled the case, so no judicial review of the
tax ruling took place.

   A current proceeding, however, is pending at the FERC that could result in
changes to the FERC's income tax method announced in Opinion No. 397 as well as
to other elements of the FERC's rate methods for petroleum pipelines. This
proceeding involves another publicly traded limited partnership engaged in
petroleum products pipeline transportation. More specifically, on January 13,
1999, the FERC issued Opinion No. 435 in this proceeding, which, among other
things, affirmed Opinion No. 397's determination that there should not be a
corporate income tax allowance built into a petroleum pipeline's rates for
income attributable to noncorporate partners. Requests for rehearing of Opinion
No. 435 were filed with the FERC on the tax issue and on other aspects of the
FERC's crude oil pipeline ratemaking methodology. Petitions for review of
Opinion No. 435 are before the Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia
Circuit. On May 17, 2000, the FERC issued Opinion No. 435-A which, with respect
to the substance of the income tax allowance issue, denied rehearing requests.
Petitions for review of Opinion No. 435-A are before the Court of Appeals for
the District of Columbia. Petitions for rehearing of Opinion No. 435-A were
decided by the FERC in Opinion 435-B, issued on September 13, 2001. That
decision further defined the scope of the income tax allowance for publicly
traded limited partnerships, and resolved a number of other cost of service
issues as well. Two parties sought rehearing of Opinion 435-B. On November 7,
2001, the FERC issued a decision that, among other things, further clarified
the income tax allowance issue. One party has sought rehearing of the November
7th decision; that petition will need to be resolved by the FERC before the
Court of Appeals will consider the petitions for review of Opinions 435, 435-A
and 435-B. We cannot assume that the ultimate outcome of the income tax
allowance issue and other issues subject to judicial review will not adversely
affect our pipeline rates.

   Market-Based Rates.  In a proceeding involving Buckeye Pipeline Company,
L.P., the FERC found that a petroleum pipeline able to demonstrate a lack of
market power may be allowed a lighter standard of regulation than that imposed
by the trended original cost methodology. In such a case, the pipeline company
has the opportunity to establish that it faces sufficient competition to
justify relief from the strict application of the cost-based principles. In
Buckeye, the FERC determined, based on the existing level of market
concentration in the pipeline's market areas, that Buckeye exercised
significant market power in only five of its 21 market areas and therefore was
entitled to charge market-based rates in the other 16 market areas. The
opportunity to charge market-based rates means that the pipeline may charge
what the market will bear. Order No. 572, a companion order to Order No. 561,
was issued by the FERC on October 25, 1994 and established procedural rules
governing petroleum pipelines' applications for a finding that the pipeline
lacks significant market power in the relevant market.

   Settlement Rates.  In Order No. 561, the FERC specifically held that it
would also permit changes in rates that are the product of unanimous agreement
between the pipeline and all the shippers using the service to which the rate
applies. The rationale behind allowing this type of rate change is to further
the FERC's policy of favoring settlements among parties and to lessen the
regulatory burdens on all concerned. The FERC, however, will also entertain a
challenge to settlement rates, in response to a protest or a complaint that
alleges the same circumstances required to challenge an indexed rate. An
example of this type of challenge is that there is a discrepancy between the
rate and the pipeline's cost of service that is so substantial as to render the
settlement (or indexed) rate unjust and unreasonable.

   Intrastate Regulation.  Some of our pipeline operations are subject to
regulation by the Texas Railroad Commission, the Pennsylvania Public Utility
Commission, the Ohio Public Utility Commission, and the Oklahoma Corporation
Commission. The applicable state statutes require that pipeline rates be
non-discriminatory and provide no more than a fair return on the aggregate
value of the pipeline property used to render services. State commissions have
generally not been aggressive in regulating common carrier pipelines and have
generally not investigated the rates or practices of petroleum pipelines in the
absence of shipper

                                      100


<PAGE>

complaints. Complaints to state agencies have been infrequent and are usually
resolved informally. Although we cannot assure you that our intrastate rates
would ultimately be upheld if challenged, we believe that, given this history,
the tariffs now in effect are not likely to be challenged or, if challenged,
are not likely to be ordered to be reduced.

   Our Pipelines.  The FERC generally has not investigated interstate rates on
its own initiative when those rates, like ours, have not been the subject of a
protest or a complaint by a shipper. In addition, as discussed above,
intrastate pipelines generally are subject to "light-handed" regulation by
state commissions and we do not believe the intrastate tariffs now in effect
are likely to be challenged. However, the FERC or a state regulatory commission
could investigate our rates at the urging of a third party if the third party
is either a current shipper or is able to show that it has a substantial
economic interest in our tariff rate level. If an interstate rate were
challenged, we would defend that rate as grandfathered under the Energy Policy
Act. As that Act applies to our rates, a person challenging a grandfathered
rate must, as a threshold matter, establish a substantial change since the date
of enactment of the Act, in either the economic circumstances or the nature of
the service that formed the basis for the rate. A complainant might assert that
the creation of the partnership itself constitutes such a change, an argument
that has not previously been specifically addressed by the FERC and to which we
believe there are valid defenses. If the FERC were to find a substantial change
in circumstances, then the existing rates could be subject to detailed review.
We believe that most such rates can be supported on a cost of service basis,
even recognizing the reduction in our income tax allowance that is likely to
result from our conversion from a corporation to a partnership. Although there
are some rates that might not be defensible on that basis, we believe that all
of those rates involve movements as to which (1) Sunoco R&M is the only
shipper, (2) the partnership has a reasonable basis to assert that it lacks
significant market power and therefore is entitled to market based rates, or
(3) the revenue amounts involved do not materially affect our performance.

   If the FERC investigated our rate levels, it could inquire into our costs,
including:

   . the overall cost of service, including operating costs and overhead;

   . the allocation of overhead and other administrative and general expenses
     to the rate;

   . the appropriate capital structure to be utilized in calculating rates;

   . the appropriate rate of return on equity;

   . the rate base, including the proper starting rate base;

   . the throughput underlying the rate; and

   . the proper allowance for federal and state income taxes.

   We do not believe that it is likely that there will be a challenge to our
rates by a current shipper that would materially affect our revenues or cash
flows. Sunoco R&M and its subsidiaries are the only current shippers in many of
our pipelines. Sunoco R&M agreed not to challenge, or to cause others to
challenge or assist others in challenging, our tariff rates for the term of the
pipelines and terminals storage and throughput agreement.

   Because most of our pipelines are common carrier pipelines, we may be
required to accept new shippers who wish to transport in our pipelines. It is
possible that any new shippers, current shippers, or other interested parties,
may decide to challenge our tariff rates. If any rate challenge or challenges
were successful, cash available for distribution could be materially reduced.

Environmental Regulation

General

   Our operation of pipelines, terminals, and associated facilities in
connection with the storage and transportation of refined products, crude oil,
and other liquid hydrocarbons are subject to stringent and complex

                                      101


<PAGE>

federal, state, and local laws and regulations governing the discharge of
materials into the environment, or otherwise relating to the protection of the
environment. As with the industry generally, compliance with existing and
anticipated laws and regulations increases our overall cost of business,
including our capital costs to construct, maintain, and upgrade equipment and
facilities. While these laws and regulations affect our maintenance capital
expenditures and net income, we believe that they do not affect our competitive
position in that the operations of our competitors are similarly affected. We
believe that our operations are in substantial compliance with applicable
environmental laws and regulations. However, these laws and regulations are
subject to frequent change by regulatory authorities, and we are unable to
predict the ongoing cost to us of complying with these laws and regulations or
the future impact of these laws and regulations on our operations. Violation of
environmental laws, regulations, and permits can result in the imposition of
significant administrative, civil and criminal penalties, injunctions, and
construction bans or delays. A discharge of hydrocarbons or hazardous
substances into the environment could, to the extent the event is not insured,
subject us to substantial expense, including both the cost to comply with
applicable laws and regulations and claims made by neighboring landowners and
other third parties for personal injury and property damage.

   Under the terms of our omnibus agreement with Sunoco, Inc., and in
connection with the contribution of our assets by affiliates of Sunoco, Inc.,
Sunoco, Inc. agreed to indemnify us for 30 years from environmental and toxic
tort liabilities related to the assets transferred to us that arise from the
operation of such assets prior to the closing of the initial public offering of
the master partnership. Sunoco, Inc. is obligated to indemnify us for 100% of
all such losses asserted within the first 21 years of closing. Sunoco, Inc.'s
share of liability for claims asserted thereafter will decrease by 10% a year.
For example, for a claim asserted during the twenty-third year after closing,
Sunoco, Inc. would be required to indemnify us for 80% of our loss. There is no
monetary cap on the amount of indemnity coverage provided by Sunoco, Inc. Any
remediation liabilities not covered by this indemnity will be our
responsibility. Total future costs for environmental remediation activities
will depend upon, among other things, the identification of any additional
sites, the determination of the extent of the contamination at each site, the
timing and nature of required remedial actions, the technology available and
needed to meet the various existing legal requirements, the nature and extent
of future environmental laws, inflation rates, and the determination of our
liability at multi-party sites, if any, in light of the number, participation
levels, and financial viability of other parties. We have agreed to indemnify
Sunoco, Inc. and its affiliates for events and conditions associated with the
operation of our assets that occur on or after the closing of the initial
public offering and for environmental and toxic tort liabilities related to our
assets to the extent Sunoco, Inc. is not required to indemnify us.

Air Emissions

   Our operations are subject to the Clean Air Act and comparable state and
local statutes. Amendments to the Clean Air Act enacted in late 1990 as well as
recent or soon to be adopted changes to state implementation plans for
controlling air emissions in regional, non-attainment areas require or will
require most industrial operations in the United States to incur capital
expenditures in order to meet air emission control standards developed by the
Environmental Protection Agency and state environmental agencies. As a result
of these amendments, our facilities that emit volatile organic compounds or
nitrogen oxides are subject to increasingly stringent regulations, including
requirements that some sources install maximum or reasonably available control
technology. In addition, the 1990 Clean Air Act Amendments established a new
operating permit for major sources, which applies to some of our facilities. We
will be required to incur certain capital expenditures in the next several
years for air pollution control equipment in connection with maintaining or
obtaining permits and approvals addressing air emission related issues.
Although we can give no assurances, we believe implementation of the 1990 Clean
Air Act Amendments will not have a material adverse effect on our financial
condition or results of operations.

   Our customers are also subject to, and affected by, environmental
regulations. Since the late 1990s, the EPA has undertaken significant
enforcement initiatives under authority of the Clean Air Act's New Source
Review and Prevention of Significant Deterioration, or NSR/PSD, program in an
effort to further reduce annual

                                      102


<PAGE>

emissions of volatile organic compounds, nitrogen oxides, sulfur dioxide, and
particulate matter. These enforcement initiatives have been targeted at
industries that have large manufacturing facilities and that are significant
sources of emissions, such as refining, paper and pulp, and electric power
generating industries. The basic premise of the enforcement initiative is the
EPA's assertion that many of these industrial establishments have modified or
expanded their operations over time without complying with NSR/PSD regulations
adopted by the EPA that require permits and new emission controls in connection
with any significant facility modifications or expansions that can result in
emissions increases above certain thresholds. Where the EPA finds that a
company or facility has modified or expanded its operations without complying
with the requirements of the NSR/PSD program, it may bring an enforcement
action against the company or facility to require installation of the emissions
controls that the agency deems necessary, and it may also seek to impose fines
and penalties for failure to comply with NSR/PSD requirements.

   As part of this on-going NSR/PSD enforcement initiative, the EPA has entered
into consent agreements with several refiners that require the refiners to make
significant capital expenditures to install emissions control equipment at
selected facilities. In certain instances, these additional controls would be
required to comply with other provisions of the Clean Air Act or other federal
or state regulations at a later date, but the effect of these consent
agreements is to require the installation of air emission controls earlier than
they might otherwise be required. The cost of the required emissions control
equipment can be significant, depending on the size, age, and configuration of
the refinery. Sunoco R&M received information requests from the EPA relating to
capital projects that have taken place at Sunoco R&M's refineries since 1980.
Pursuant to the NSR/PSD enforcement initiative, on December 20, 2001, Sunoco
R&M received notices of violation from the EPA relating to its Marcus Hook,
Philadelphia, and Toledo refineries. Although Sunoco R&M believes that it has
not violated the related Clean Air Act requirements, it is currently evaluating
the notices of violation for all three refineries to determine how it will
respond. In resolving these notices of violation, Sunoco R&M could be required
to make significant capital expenditures, operate these refineries at reduced
levels, and pay significant penalties. If Sunoco R&M determines it is
uneconomical to operate its refineries under such conditions and as a result
shuts down or reconfigures all or a portion of one or more of its refineries,
its obligations under the pipelines and terminals storage and throughput
agreement would be reduced, which would reduce our ability to service our debt
obligations.

   Under the Clean Air Act, the EPA and state agencies acting with authority
delegated by the EPA have announced new rules or the intent to strengthen
existing rules affecting the composition of motor vehicle fuels and automobile
emissions. The EPA's Gasoline Sulfur Control Requirements require that the
sulfur content of motor vehicle gasoline be reduced to 80 parts per million and
the corporate average sulfur content be reduced to 30 parts per million by
2006. Likewise, the EPA's Diesel Fuel Sulfur Control Requirements require that
the sulfur content of diesel fuel be reduced to 15 parts per million by 2006.
The rules include banking and trading credit systems, which could provide
refiners flexibility until 2006 for the low-sulfur gasoline and until 2010 for
the low-sulfur diesel. These rules are expected to have a significant impact on
Sunoco R&M and its operations primarily with respect to the capital and
operating expenditures at the Philadelphia, Marcus Hook, and Toledo refineries.
Most of the capital spending is likely to occur in the 2002-2006 period, while
the higher operating costs will be incurred when the low-sulfur fuels are
produced. Sunoco R&M estimates that the total capital outlays to comply with
the new gasoline and diesel requirements will be in the range of $300-$400
million. The ultimate impact of the rules may be affected by such factors as
technology selection, the effectiveness of the banking and trading credit
systems, production mix, timing uncertainties created by permitting
requirements and construction schedules, and any effect on prices created by
changes in the level of gasoline and diesel fuel production.

   The EPA is also reportedly considering limiting the levels of benzene and
other toxic substances in gasoline as well as banning methyl tertiary-butyl
ether, also known as MTBE, in gasoline, which may require the use of other
chemical additives to serve as oxygenates instead of MTBE. Legal mandates to
use alternative fuels may also have a direct and potentially adverse impact on
our revenues. For example, under the Energy Policy Act of 1992, 75% of new
vehicles purchased by certain federal and state government fleets must use
alternative fuels

                                      103


<PAGE>

and New York has adopted standards requiring that by the year 2003, 10% of
fleets delivered be zero-emissions vehicles; and under the Clean Air Act, 50%
to 70% (depending on vehicle weight) of new vehicles in clean air
non-attainment areas purchased by certain federal, state, municipal, and
private fleets must use some type of alternative fuels beginning in 2001. Also,
some states and local governments, including, for example, Texas, have adopted
"boutique" fuel standards to comply with clean air requirements. "Boutique"
fuels pose distribution problems because refiners must produce different blends
for different communities.

   During 2001, the EPA issued its final rule addressing emissions of toxic air
pollutants from mobile sources (the Mobile Source Air Toxics ("MSAT") Rule).
The rule is currently being challenged by certain environmental organizations
and a number of states, and by a member of the petroleum industry. It requires
refiners to produce gasoline that maintains their average 1998-2000 gasoline
toxic emission performance level. If the rule survives the challenges and if
MTBE is banned, it could result in additional expenditures by Sunoco R&M or
reductions in its reformulated gasoline production levels.

   It is uncertain what Sunoco, Inc. or Sunoco R&M's responses to these
emerging issues will be. We cannot assure you that those responses will not
reduce Sunoco R&M's obligations under the pipelines and terminals storage and
throughput agreement, thereby reducing the throughput in our pipelines, our
cash flow, and our ability to service our debt obligations.

Hazardous Substances and Waste

   To a large extent, the environmental laws and regulations affecting our
operations relate to the release of hazardous substances or solid wastes into
soils, groundwater, and surface water, and include measures to control
pollution of the environment. These laws generally regulate the generation,
storage, treatment, transportation, and disposal of solid and hazardous waste.
They also require corrective action, including the investigation and
remediation, of certain units at a facility where such waste may have been
released or disposed. For instance, the Comprehensive Environmental Response,
Compensation, and Liability Act, referred to as CERCLA and also known as
Superfund, and comparable state laws impose liability, without regard to fault
or the legality of the original conduct, on certain classes of persons that
contributed to the release of a "hazardous substance" into the environment.
These persons include the owner or operator of the site where the release
occurred and companies that disposed or arranged for the disposal of the
hazardous substances found at the site. Under CERCLA, these persons may be
subject to joint and several liability for the costs of cleaning up the
hazardous substances that have been released into the environment, for damages
to natural resources, and for the costs of certain health studies. CERCLA also
authorizes the EPA and, in some instances, third parties to act in response to
threats to the public health or the environment and to seek to recover from the
responsible classes of persons the costs they incur. It is not uncommon for
neighboring landowners and other third parties to file claims for personal
injury and property damage allegedly caused by hazardous substances or other
pollutants released into the environment. In the course of our ordinary
operations, we may generate waste that falls within CERCLA's definition of a
"hazardous substance" and, as a result, may be jointly and severally liable
under CERCLA for all or part of the costs required to clean up sites at which
these hazardous substances have been released into the environment. We are
currently identified as a potentially responsible party ("PRP") at two sites in
Michigan by the Michigan Department of Natural Resources and at one site in New
York by the EPA in connection with alleged past transport of petroleum product
wastes to, and subsequent release of such wastes at, these sites. We believe
that any costs incurred by us in connection with remedial action at these sites
will not have a material adverse impact on our operations. In addition, while
we are not identified as a PRP at the Higgins Farm Superfund site in Somerset
County, New Jersey, a PRP-defendant group has filed a suit against us, seeking
contribution for remediation costs in connection with an ongoing cleanup of
that site. We believe this cost recovery suit to be without merit and are
vigorously contesting this matter. Costs for these remedial actions, if any as
well as any related claims are all covered by an indemnity from Sunoco, Inc.
For more information, please read "--Environmental Remediation."

                                      104


<PAGE>

   We also generate solid wastes, including hazardous wastes, that are subject
to the requirements of the federal Resource Conservation and Recovery Act,
referred to as RCRA, and comparable state statutes. From time to time, the EPA
considers the adoption of stricter disposal standards for non-hazardous wastes,
including crude oil and gas wastes. We are not currently required to comply
with a substantial portion of the RCRA requirements because our operations
generate minimal quantities of hazardous wastes. However, it is possible that
additional wastes, which could include wastes currently generated during
operations, will in the future be designated as "hazardous wastes." Hazardous
wastes are subject to more rigorous and costly disposal requirements than are
non-hazardous wastes. Any changes in the regulations could have a material
adverse effect on our maintenance capital expenditures and operating expenses.

   We currently own or lease, and our predecessor has in the past owned or
leased, properties where hydrocarbons are being or have been handled for many
years. Although we have utilized operating and disposal practices that were
standard in the industry at the time, hydrocarbons or other waste may have been
disposed of or released on or under the properties owned or leased by us or on
or under other locations where these wastes have been taken for disposal. In
addition, many of these properties have been operated by third parties whose
treatment and disposal or release of hydrocarbons or other wastes was not under
our control. These properties and wastes disposed thereon may be subject to
CERCLA, RCRA, and analogous state laws. Under these laws, we could be required
to remove or remediate previously disposed wastes (including wastes disposed of
or released by prior owners or operators), to clean up contaminated property
(including contaminated groundwater), or to perform remedial operations to
prevent future contamination.

   We are currently involved in remediation activities at numerous sites, which
involve significant expense. These remediation activities are all covered by an
indemnity from Sunoco, Inc. For more information, please read "--Environmental
Remediation."

Water

   Our operations can result in the discharge of pollutants, including crude
oil. The Oil Pollution Act was enacted in 1990 and amends provisions of the
Water Pollution Control Act of 1972 and other statutes as they pertain to
prevention and response to oil spills. The Oil Pollution Act subjects owners of
covered facilities to strict, joint, and potentially unlimited liability for
removal costs and other consequences of an oil spill, where the spill is into
navigable waters, along shorelines or in the exclusive economic zone of the
United States. In the event of an oil spill into navigable waters, substantial
liabilities could be imposed upon us. States in which we operate have also
enacted similar laws. Regulations are currently being developed under the Oil
Pollution Act and state laws that may also impose additional regulatory burdens
on our operations. Spill prevention control and countermeasure requirements of
federal laws and some state laws require diking and similar structures to help
prevent contamination of navigable waters in the event of an oil overflow,
rupture, or leak. We are in substantial compliance with these laws.
Additionally, the Office of Pipeline Safety of the DOT has approved our oil
spill emergency response plans.

   The Water Pollution Control Act of 1972 imposes restrictions and strict
controls regarding the discharge of pollutants into navigable waters. Permits
must be obtained to discharge pollutants into state and federal waters. The
Water Pollution Control Act of 1972 imposes substantial potential liability for
the costs of removal, remediation, and damages. In addition, some states
maintain groundwater protection programs that require permits for discharges or
operations that may impact groundwater conditions. We believe that compliance
with existing permits and compliance with foreseeable new permit requirements
will not have a material adverse effect on our financial condition or results
of operations.

Employee Safety

   We are subject to the requirements of the Occupational Safety and Health
Act, referred to as OSHA, and comparable state statutes that regulate the
protection of the health and safety of workers. In addition, the OSHA

                                      105


<PAGE>

hazard communication standard requires that information be maintained about
hazardous materials used or produced in operations and that this information be
provided to employees, state, and local government authorities and citizens. We
believe that our operations are in substantial compliance with the OSHA
requirements, including general industry standards, record keeping
requirements, and monitoring of occupational exposure to regulated substances.

Endangered Species Act

   The Endangered Species Act restricts activities that may affect endangered
species or their habitats. While some of our facilities are in areas that may
be designated as habitat for endangered species, we believe that we are in
substantial compliance with the Endangered Species Act. However, the discovery
of previously unidentified endangered species could cause us to incur
additional costs or become subject to operating restrictions or bans in the
affected area.

Hazardous Materials Transportation Requirements

   The DOT regulations affecting pipeline safety require pipeline operators to
implement measures designed to reduce the environmental impact of crude oil
discharge from onshore crude oil pipelines. These regulations require operators
to maintain comprehensive spill response plans, including extensive spill
response training for pipeline personnel. In addition, the DOT regulations
contain detailed specifications for pipeline operation and maintenance. We
believe our operations are in substantial compliance with these regulations.
The DOT has recently adopted a pipeline integrity management rule. We have
analyzed the impact of this rule and, based on historical integrity tests
conducted since 1989, have estimated that compliance with this rule will cost
us approximately $8.0 million a year for five years, for a total of $40.0
million for all pipelines in our Eastern and Western Pipeline Systems that are
subject to this rule. Sunoco, Inc. has agreed to indemnify us for costs in
excess of $8.0 million per year, up to a maximum of $15.0 million over the next
five years in connection with compliance with this DOT pipeline integrity
management rule. Please read "Certain Relationships and Related
Transactions--Omnibus Agreement."

Environmental Remediation

   Contamination resulting from spills of refined products and crude oil is not
unusual within the petroleum pipeline industry. Historic spills along our
pipelines, gathering systems, and terminals as a result of past operations have
resulted in contamination of the environment, including soils and groundwater.
Site conditions, including soils and groundwater, are being evaluated at a
number of our properties where operations may have resulted in releases of
hydrocarbons and other wastes.

   Moreover, potentially significant assessment, monitoring, and remediation
programs are being performed at some 19 sites, identified as of December 31,
2001, in Michigan, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, and Pennsylvania. These 19 sites
include eight terminals and two tank farms owned by us (River Rouge and Owosso
Terminals in Michigan; Newark Terminal in New Jersey; Dayton Terminal in Ohio;
and Belmont, Kingston, Montello, and Pittsburgh Terminals and Darby Creek Tank
Farm and Marcus Hook Tank Farm in Pennsylvania) and nine third-party locations
(in Camden County in New Jersey; in Livingston and Chemung Counties in New
York; and in Chester, Delaware, Lancaster, Lebanon, and Luzerne Counties, in
Pennsylvania) that were impacted by pipe line or pump station releases of crude
oil or petroleum products. We estimate that the total aggregate cost of
performing the currently anticipated assessment, monitoring and remediation at
these 19 sites to be $8.6 million. This estimate assumes that we will be able
to achieve regulatory closure at these sites between the years 2002 and 2010 by
using common remedial and monitoring methods or associated engineering or
institutional controls to demonstrate compliance with applicable cleanup
standards. This estimate covers the costs of performing assessment,
remediation, and/or monitoring of impacted soils, groundwater and surface water
conditions, but does not include any costs for potential claims by others with
respect to these sites. While we do not expect any such potential claims by
others to be materially adverse to our operations, financial position, or cash
flows, we cannot assure you that the actual remediation costs or associated
remediation liabilities will not exceed this $8.6 million amount.

                                      106


<PAGE>

   With respect to the February 2000 pipeline release of crude oil into the
John Heinz National Wildlife Refuge in Philadelphia, one of the 19 sites where
potentially significant environmental liability exists, we have conducted
remedial activities at the release area and have initiated restoration efforts
in the area, including establishment of a new wetlands area. We expect the EPA
to assess a penalty with respect to the February 2000 pipeline release which
could exceed $100,000.

   Sunoco, Inc. has agreed to indemnify us from environmental and toxic tort
liabilities related to the assets transferred to us to the extent such
liabilities exist or arise from operation of these assets prior to closing of
the initial public offering of the master partnership and are asserted within
30 years after the closing. This indemnity will cover the costs associated with
performance of the assessment, monitoring, and remediation programs, as well as
any related claims and penalties, at the 19 sites referenced above. See
"--Environmental Regulation--General."

   We may experience future releases of refined products or crude oil into the
environment from our pipelines, gathering systems, and terminals, or discover
historical releases that were previously unidentified or not assessed. While we
maintain an extensive inspection and audit program designed, as applicable, to
prevent and to detect and address these releases promptly, damages and
liabilities incurred due to any future environmental releases from our assets
nevertheless have the potential to substantially affect our business.

Title to Properties

   Substantially all of our pipelines are constructed on rights-of-way granted
by the apparent record owners of the property and in some instances these
rights-of-way are revocable at the election of the grantor. Several
rights-of-way for our pipelines and other real property assets are shared with
other pipelines and other assets owned by affiliates of Sunoco, Inc. and by
third parties. In many instances, lands over which rights-of-way have been
obtained are subject to prior liens that have not been subordinated to the
right-of-way grants. We have obtained permits from public authorities to cross
over or under, or to lay facilities in or along, watercourses, county roads,
municipal streets, and state highways and, in some instances, these permits are
revocable at the election of the grantor. We have also obtained permits from
railroad companies to cross over or under lands or rights-of-way, many of which
are also revocable at the grantor's election. In some cases, property for
pipeline purposes was purchased in fee. In some states and under some
circumstances, we have the right of eminent domain to acquire rights-of-way and
lands necessary for our common carrier pipelines. The previous owners of the
applicable pipelines may not have commenced or concluded eminent domain
proceedings for some rights-of-way. We will commence or conclude such
proceedings to the extent we deem necessary.

   Some of the leases, easements, rights-of-way, permits, and licenses
transferred to us on closing of the initial public offering of the master
partnership required the consent of the grantor to transfer these rights, which
in some instances is a governmental entity. We have obtained or are in the
process of obtaining third-party consents, permits, and authorizations
sufficient for the transfer to us of the assets necessary for us to operate our
business in all material respects as described in this prospectus. With respect
to any consents, permits, or authorizations that have not been obtained, the
failure to obtain these consents, permits, or authorizations will have no
material adverse effect on the operation of our business.

   We believe that we have satisfactory title to all of our assets, or we are
entitled to indemnification from Sunoco, Inc. under the omnibus agreement for
title defects to the assets contributed to us and for failures to obtain
certain consents and permits necessary to conduct our business that arise
within ten years after the closing of the initial public offering of common
units by the master partnership. Record title to some of our assets may
continue to be held by affiliates of Sunoco, Inc. until we have made the
appropriate filings in the jurisdictions in which such assets are located and
obtained any consents and approvals that were not obtained prior to closing of
the master partnership's initial public offering. We are in the process of
making these filings and obtaining these consents. Although title to these
properties is subject to encumbrances in some cases, such as customary
interests generally retained in connection with acquisition of real property,
liens that can be imposed in some jurisdictions

                                      107


<PAGE>

for government-initiated action to clean up environmental contamination, liens
for current taxes and other burdens, and easements, restrictions, and other
encumbrances to which the underlying properties were subject at the time of
acquisition by our predecessor or us, we believe that none of these burdens
should materially detract from the value of these properties or from our
interest in these properties or should materially interfere with their use in
the operation of our business.

Employees

   To carry out our operations, the master partnership's general partner and
its affiliates employ approximately 1,160 people who provide direct support to
our operations. Approximately 660 of these employees are represented by labor
unions or associations. The master partnership's general partner considers its
employee relations to be good. Our partnership has no employees.

Legal Proceedings

   With respect to a pipeline release of crude oil in February 2000 in the John
Heinz National Wildlife Refuge in Philadelphia, we have conducted remedial
activities at the release area and have initiated restoration efforts in the
area. We expect the EPA to assess a penalty with respect to this release that
could exceed $100,000. Sunoco, Inc. has agreed to indemnify us for any losses
we may suffer as a result of legal actions pending at the time of the closing
of the master partnership's initial public offering, which includes any
assessed penalty relating to the February 2000 pipeline release of crude oil.
Please read "--Agreements with Sunoco R&M and Sunoco, Inc."

   There are other legal and administrative proceedings pending against our
Sunoco, Inc. affiliated predecessors and us (as successor to certain
liabilities of those predecessors). Although the ultimate outcome of these
proceedings cannot be ascertained at this time, it is reasonably possible that
some of them may be resolved unfavorably. The indemnity from Sunoco, Inc. will
cover any losses we may suffer as a result of such currently pending legal
actions. As a result, we believe that any liabilities arising from such
currently pending proceedings are unlikely to be material.

                                  MANAGEMENT

Management of Sunoco Logistics Partners Operations L.P. and Sunoco Logistics
Partners L.P.

   We are managed by our general partner, Sunoco Logistics Partners GP LLC. Our
general partner is a wholly owned subsidiary of the master partnership, which
is managed by its general partner, Sunoco Partners LLC. The following
information describes the management of Sunoco Partners LLC, the general
partner of the master partnership. The directors and officers of Sunoco
Partners LLC are the same as the officers and directors of our general partner.
Most of our operational personnel are employees of our master partnership's
general partner. Our general partner is liable, as general partner, for all of
our debts (to the extent not paid from our assets), except for indebtedness or
other obligations that are made specifically nonrecourse to it. Whenever
possible, our general partner intends to incur indebtedness or other
obligations that are nonrecourse.

   At least two members of the board of directors of our master partnership's
general partner will serve on a conflicts committee to review specific matters
that the board believes may involve conflicts of interest. The conflicts
committee will determine if the resolution of the conflict of interest is fair
and reasonable to the master partnership. The members of the conflicts
committee may not be officers or employees of our master partnership's general
partner or directors, officers, or employees of its affiliates, and must meet
the independence and experience standards to serve on an audit committee of a
board of directors established by the New York Stock Exchange. Any matters
approved by the conflicts committee will be conclusively deemed to be fair and
reasonable to us, approved by all of our master partnership's partners, and not
a breach by our master partnership's general partner of any duties it may owe
us or our unitholders. In addition, the members of the conflicts committee will
also serve on an audit committee that will review our external financial
reporting, recommend engagement of our master partnership's independent
auditors, and review procedures for internal auditing and the adequacy of our
internal accounting controls. The board of directors of the general partner of
the master partnership will oversee compensation decisions for the officers of
our master partnership's general partner as well as the compensation plans
described below.

   In compliance with the rules of the New York Stock Exchange, the members of
the board of directors named below will appoint two independent members within
three months of the listing of the master partnership's common units on the New
York Stock Exchange and one additional independent member within 12 months of
that listing. The three newly appointed members will serve as the initial
members of the audit committee.

   The officers of Sunoco Partners LLC, other than Paul A. Mulholland, our
Treasurer, and Joseph P. Krott who is acting as Comptroller on an interim
basis, will spend substantially all of their time managing our business and
affairs. The non-executive directors will devote as much time as is necessary
to prepare for and attend board of directors and committee meetings.

Reimbursement of Expenses

   The master partnership's general partner will not receive any management fee
or other compensation for its management of the master partnership. The master
partnership's general partner and its affiliates will be reimbursed for
expenses incurred on our behalf. These expenses include the costs of employee,
officer, and director compensation and benefits properly allocable to us and
the master partnership, and all other expenses necessary or appropriate to the
conduct of the business of, and allocable to, us and the master partnership.
Our partnership agreement and the master partnership's partnership agreement
provide that the general partner will determine the expenses that are allocable
to the partnership of which it is the general partner in any reasonable manner
it determines in its sole discretion. Please read "Certain Relationships and
Related Transactions--Omnibus Agreement."

Executive Compensation

   The master partnership and the master partnership's general partner were
formed in October 2001, but the general partner paid no compensation to its
directors and officers with respect to the 2001 fiscal year. We and our general
partner were formed in December 2001, but our general partner paid no
compensation to our directors with respect to the 2001 fiscal year. We have not
accrued any obligations with respect to management incentive or retirement
benefits for the directors and officers for the 2001 fiscal year. Officers and
employees of the master partnership's general partner may participate in
employee benefit plans and arrangements sponsored by the master partnership's
general partner or its affiliates, including plans that may be established by
the general partner or its affiliates in the future.

Compensation of Directors

   Directors of the master partnership's general partner who are employees of
Sunoco Partners LLC or its affiliates receive no additional compensation for
service on the master partnership's general partner's board of directors or any
committees of the board. Non-employee directors will receive an annual retainer
of $15,000 in cash, to be paid quarterly, and a number of restricted units to
be paid quarterly under the Sunoco Partners LLC Long-Term Incentive Plan,
having an aggregate fair market value equal to $15,000 on an annual basis (the
fair market value of each such quarterly payment of restricted units being
calculated as of the date of such payment). Chairpersons of any standing
committee of the board of directors of the master partnership's general partner
will receive an annual committee chair retainer of $1,500 in cash. Non-employee
directors will receive $1,500 in cash for each board meeting attended, and
$1,000 in cash for each committee meeting attended. In addition, each non-

                                      111


<PAGE>

employee director will be reimbursed for out-of-pocket expenses in connection
with attending meetings of the board of directors or committees. Each director
will be fully indemnified by the master partnership for actions associated with
being a director to the extent permitted under Delaware law.

Long-Term Incentive Plan

   The master partnership's general partner has adopted the Sunoco Partners LLC
Long-Term Incentive Plan for employees and directors of the master
partnership's general partner and employees of its affiliates who perform
services for us. The long-term incentive plan consists of two components:
restricted units and unit options. The long-term incentive plan currently
permits the grant of awards covering an aggregate of 1,250,000 common units.
The master partnership's general partner's board of directors administers the
plan.

   The master partnership's general partner's board of directors in its
discretion may terminate or amend the long-term incentive plan at any time with
respect to any units for which a grant has not yet been made. The master
partnership's general partner's board of directors also has the right to alter
or amend the long-term incentive plan or any part of the plan from time to
time, including increasing the number of units that may be granted subject to
unitholder approval as required by the exchange upon which the common units are
listed at that time. However, no change in any outstanding grant may be made
that would materially impair the rights of the participant without the consent
of the participant.

   Restricted Units.  A restricted unit is a "phantom" unit that entitles the
grantee to receive a common unit upon the vesting of the phantom unit or, in
the discretion of the the master partnership's general partner's board of
directors, cash equivalent to the value of a common unit. An initial grant of
approximately 125,000 restricted units is expected to be made to employees and
directors of the master partnership's general partner and employees of its
affiliates who perform services for us. In the future, the board may determine
to make additional grants under the plan to employees and directors containing
such terms as the compensation committee shall determine under the plan. The
board will determine the period over which restricted units granted to
employees and directors will vest. The board may base its determination upon
the achievement of specified financial objectives. In addition, the restricted
units will vest upon a change of control of Sunoco Logistics Partners, the
master partnership's general partner, or Sunoco, Inc.

   If a grantee's employment or membership on the board of directors terminates
for any reason, the grantee's restricted units will be automatically forfeited
unless, and to the extent, the master partnership's general partner's board of
directors provides otherwise. Common units to be delivered upon the vesting of
restricted units may be common units acquired by the master partnership's
general partner in the open market, common units already owned by the master
partnership's general partner, common units acquired by the master
partnership's general partner directly from master partnership or any other
person or any combination of the foregoing. The master partnership's general
partner will be entitled to reimbursement by us for the cost incurred in
acquiring common units. If the master partnership issues new common units upon
vesting of the restricted units, the total number of common units outstanding
will increase. The master partnership's general partner's board of directors,
in its discretion, may grant tandem distribution equivalent rights with respect
to restricted units.

   The master partnership intends the issuance of the common units upon vesting
of the restricted units under the plan to serve as a means of incentive
compensation for performance and not primarily as an opportunity to participate
in the equity appreciation of the common units. Therefore, plan participants
will not pay any consideration for the common units they receive, and we will
receive no remuneration for the units.

   Unit Options.  The long-term incentive plan currently permits the grant of
options covering common units. In the future, the master partnership's general
partner's board of directors may determine to make grants under the plan to
employees and directors containing such terms as the committee shall determine.
Unit options will have an exercise price that, may not be less than the fair
market value of the units on the date of grant. In general, unit options
granted will become exercisable over a period determined by the compensation
committee. In

                                      112


<PAGE>

addition, the unit options will become exercisable upon a change in control of
the master partnership, the master partnership's general partner, or Sunoco,
Inc. or upon the achievement of specified financial objectives.

   Upon exercise of a unit option, the master partnership's general partner
will acquire common units in the open market or directly from the master
partnership or any other person or use common units already owned by the master
partnership's general partner, or any combination of the foregoing. The master
partnership's general partner will be entitled to reimbursement by the master
partnership for the difference between the cost incurred by the master
partnership's general partner in acquiring these common units and the proceeds
received by the general partner from an optionee at the time of exercise. Thus,
the cost of the unit options will be borne by the master partnership. If the
master partnership issues new common units upon exercise of the unit options,
the total number of common units outstanding will increase, and the master
partnership's general partner will pay us the proceeds it received from the
optionee upon exercise of the unit option. The unit option plan has been
designed to furnish additional compensation to employees and directors and to
align their economic interests with those of common unitholders.

Management Incentive Plan

   The master partnership's general partner has adopted the Sunoco Partners LLC
Annual Incentive Compensation Plan. The management incentive plan is designed
to enhance the performance of the master partnership's general partner's key
employees by rewarding them with cash awards for achieving annual financial and
operational performance objectives. The master partnership's general partner's
board of directors in its discretion may determine individual participants and
payments, if any, for each fiscal year. The board of directors of the master
partnership's general partner may amend or change the management incentive plan
at any time. We will reimburse the master partnership's general partner for
payments and costs incurred under the plan.

                         DESCRIPTION OF THE NEW NOTES

General

   Our new notes will be issued under an indenture dated as of February 7,
2002. This is the same indenture pursuant to which we issued the outstanding
notes. The indenture is a contract between us and Wachovia Bank, National
Association, (formerly First Union National Bank), which acts as trustee. The
indenture and the new notes contain the full legal text of the matters
described in this section. The indenture and the new notes are governed by New
York law. A copy of the indenture has been filed as an exhibit to the
registration statement of which this prospectus is a part and also may be
obtained from the trustee upon request.

   The terms of the notes include those set forth in the indenture and those
made a part of the indenture by reference to the Trust Indenture Act of 1939.
The following description of the material provisions of the new notes and the
indenture is a summary only. Because this section is a summary, it does not
describe every aspect of those documents. This summary is subject to and
qualified in its entirety by reference to all the provisions of those
documents, including definitions of terms referenced in this prospectus.

   References to the "notes" refer to both the new notes and the outstanding
notes.

   If the exchange offer contemplated by this prospectus is consummated,
holders of outstanding notes who do not exchange those notes for new notes in
the exchange offer will vote together with holders of new notes for all
relevant purposes under the indenture. In that regard, the indenture requires
that certain actions by the holders thereunder must be taken, and certain
rights must be exercised, by specified minimum percentages of the aggregate
principal amount of the outstanding securities issued under the indenture. In
determining whether holders of the requisite percentage in principal amount
have given any notice, consent or waiver or taken any other action permitted
under the indenture, any outstanding notes that remain outstanding after the
exchange offer will be aggregated with the new notes, and the holders of such
outstanding notes and the new notes will vote together as a single class for
all such purposes. Accordingly, all references herein to specified percentages
in aggregate principal amount of the notes outstanding shall be deemed to mean,
at any time after the exchange offer is consummated, such percentages in
aggregate principal amount of the outstanding notes and the new notes then
outstanding.

Principal and Maturity

   The new notes will be unsecured obligations of Sunoco Logistics Partners
Operations L.P. The new notes will mature on February 15, 2012, unless sooner
redeemed. The new notes will not be entitled to the benefits of a sinking fund.
We may from time to time, without the consent of the existing holders, create
and issue further notes having the same terms and conditions as the new notes
being offered hereby in all respects, except for issue date, issue price and,
if applicable, the first payment of interest thereon. Additional new notes
issued in this manner will be consolidated with, and will form a single series
with, the previously new notes that are outstanding.

   All of the new notes will be held initially in the form of one or more
global notes. See "Global Notes; Book-Entry System--Global Notes" for a general
description of the global notes.

   The new notes will be issued only in registered form without coupons, in
denominations of $1,000 or integral multiples thereof.

Interest

   The new notes will bear interest at the annual rate set forth on the cover
page of this prospectus payable semi-annually in arrears on February 15 and
August 15 of each year to noteholders in whose name the new notes

                                      115


<PAGE>

are registered at the close of business on February 1 or August 1 (whether or
not a business day) preceding the applicable interest payment date. We refer to
each of those days as an interest payment date. Holders of the new notes will
receive interest from the date of original issuance of the outstanding notes,
or from the date of the last payment of interest on the outstanding notes,
whichever is later. Holders of new notes will not receive any interest on
outstanding notes tendered and accepted for exchange. If an interest payment
date or a redemption date occurs on a date that is not a business day, payment
will be made on the next business day and no additional interest will accrue.
Under the indenture, a business day is any day, other than Saturday or Sunday,
that is not a day on which banking institutions in The City of New York are
authorized or obligated by law, executive order or regulation to close.

   Interest on the new notes will be computed on the basis of a 360-day year
comprised of twelve 30-day months.

Ranking

   The new notes will rank equally with all of our other unsecured and
unsubordinated indebtedness from time to time outstanding. Holders of the new
notes will generally have a junior position to claims of creditors and holders
of preferred securities of our subsidiaries who do not become guarantors, if
applicable. The indenture does not limit our ability to incur additional
indebtedness.

Guaranty of Notes

   We are a subsidiary of the master partnership. We are also a holding company
that conducts all of our operations through our subsidiaries, which consist of
Sunoco Pipeline L.P., which we call Pipeline LP, and Sunoco Partners Marketing
& Terminals L.P., which we call Terminals LP. Initially, the master
partnership, Pipeline LP and Terminals LP will guarantee due and punctual
payment of the principal, any premium and interest on the notes when and as it
becomes due and payable, whether at maturity or otherwise. Each of the master
partnership, Pipeline L.P. and Terminals L.P. has guaranteed our obligations
under the revolving credit facility. Their guarantees of the notes will rank
equally with their other unsecured and unsubordinated indebtedness from time to
time outstanding, including their guarantees under the revolving credit
facility. The guarantees provide that upon a default in payment of principal or
any premium or interest on a new note, the holder of the new note may institute
legal proceedings directly against Sunoco Logistics, Pipeline LP or Terminals
LP to enforce the guarantees without first proceeding against us. Each
guarantor is obligated under its guarantee only up to an amount that would not
constitute a fraudulent conveyance or fraudulent transfer under federal, state
or foreign law.

   The indenture also requires our future subsidiaries that become guarantors
or co-obligors of our Funded Debt, as defined below, to fully and
unconditionally guarantee, as "guarantors," our payment obligations on the
notes. In particular, the indenture requires those subsidiaries who become
guarantors or borrowers under our revolving credit facility to equally
guarantee the notes.

   In the indenture, the term "subsidiary" means, with respect to any person:

     .  any corporation, association or other business entity of which more
        than 50% of the total voting power of the equity interests entitled,
        without regard to the occurrence of any contingency, to vote in the
        election of directors, managers or trustees thereof is at the time
        owned or controlled, directly or indirectly, by that person or one or
        more of the other subsidiaries of that person or a combination thereof;
        or

     .  any partnership of which more than 50% of the partner's equity
        interests, considering all partners' equity interests as a single
        class, is at the time owned or controlled, directly or indirectly, by
        that person or one or more of the other subsidiaries of that person or
        a combination thereof.

                                      116


<PAGE>

   "Funded Debt" means all debt:

     .  maturing one year or more from the date of its creation;

     .  directly or indirectly renewable or extendable, at the option of the
        debtor, by its terms or by the terms of any instrument or agreement
        relating to the debt, to a date one year or more from the date of its
        creation; or

     .  under a revolving credit or similar agreement obligating the lender or
        lenders to extend credit over a period of one year or more.

Addition and Release of Guarantors

   The indenture provides that if any of our subsidiaries is a guarantor or
obligor of any of our Funded Debt at any time on or subsequent to the date the
outstanding notes were originally issued, then we will cause the notes to be
equally and ratably guaranteed by that subsidiary. We also will do so if the
subsidiary becomes a guarantor or obligor of any of our Funded Debt following
any release of the subsidiary from its guarantee as described below. Under the
terms of the indenture, a guarantor, whether a subsidiary or the master
partnership, may be released from its guarantee if the guarantor is not a
guarantor or obligor of any of our Funded Debt, provided that no default or
Event of Default under the indenture has occurred or is continuing. (Sections
1008 and 1409)

   Each future guarantor would be obligated under its guarantee only up to an
amount that would not constitute a fraudulent conveyance or fraudulent transfer
under federal, state or foreign law.

Optional Redemption

   The notes will be redeemable, in whole or in part, at our option at any time
(a "Redemption Date") at a redemption price equal to the greater of:

     .  100% of the principal amount of the notes; and

     .  an amount equal to the sum of the present values of the remaining
        scheduled payments for principal and interest on the notes, not
        including any portion of the payments of interest accrued as of such
        Redemption Date, discounted to such Redemption Date on a semi-annual
        basis (assuming a 360-day year consisting of twelve 30-day months) at
        the Treasury Rate, as defined below, plus 25 basis points;

plus, in each case, accrued and unpaid interest on the notes to such Redemption
Date.

   In the indenture, the following terms have the meanings set forth below:

   "Treasury Rate" means the rate per year equal to the semi-annual equivalent
yield to maturity of the Comparable Treasury Issue, calculated using a price
for the Comparable Treasury Issue (expressed as a percentage of its principal
amount) equal to the Comparable Treasury Price for such Redemption Date. The
Treasury Rate shall be calculated on the third business day preceding the
Redemption Date.

   "Comparable Treasury Issue" means the United States Treasury security
selected by the Independent Investment Banker as having a maturity comparable
to the remaining term of the series of notes to be redeemed that would be
utilized, at the time of selection and in accordance with customary financial
practice, in pricing new issues of corporate debt securities of comparable
maturity to the remaining term of such series of notes.

   "Comparable Treasury Price" means with respect to any Redemption Date for a
series of notes (1) the average of the Reference Treasury Dealer Quotations for
such Redemption Date, after excluding the highest and lowest such Reference
Treasury Dealer Quotations, or (2) if the trustee obtains fewer than five such
Reference Treasury Dealer Quotations, the average of all such quotations.

                                      117


<PAGE>

   "Independent Investment Banker" means either Lehman Brothers Inc. or Credit
Suisse First Boston Corporation, as specified by us, and any successor firm or,
if such firm is unwilling or unable to select the Comparable Treasury Issue, an
independent investment banking institution of national standing appointed by
the trustee after consultation with us.

   "Reference Treasury Dealer" means each of Lehman Brothers Inc. and Credit
Suisse First Boston Corporation and three other primary U.S. government
securities dealers (each a "Primary Treasury Dealer"), as specified by us;
provided, that (1) if any of Lehman Brothers Inc., Credit Suisse First Boston
Corporation or any Primary Treasury Dealer as specified by us shall cease to be
a Primary Treasury Dealer, we will substitute therefore another Primary
Treasury Dealer and (2) if we fail to select a substitute within a reasonable
period of time, then the substitute will be a Primary Treasury Dealer selected
by the trustee after consultation with us.

   "Reference Treasury Dealer Quotations" means, with respect to the Reference
Treasury Dealer and any Redemption Date, the average, as determined by the
trustee, of the bid and asked prices for the Comparable Treasury Issue
(expressed, in each case, as a percentage of its principal amount) quoted in
writing to the trustee by such Reference Treasury Dealer at 5:00 p.m., New York
City time, on the third business day preceding such Redemption Date.

   If less than all of the notes of any series are to be redeemed, the trustee
shall select the notes or portions of the notes to be redeemed by such method
as the trustee shall deem fair and appropriate. The trustee may select for
redemption notes and portions of notes in amounts of whole multiples of $1,000.

   Notice of any redemption will be mailed at least 30 days but not more than
60 days before the Redemption Date to each holder of the notes to be redeemed.
Unless we default in payment of the redemption price, on or after the
Redemption Date, interest will cease to accrue on the notes called for
redemption. (Section 1101)

Important Covenants

   We are subject to certain covenants under the indenture with respect to the
new notes offered by this prospectus.

Limitations on Liens

   The indenture provides that we will not, nor will we permit any subsidiary
to, create, assume, incur or suffer to exist any lien upon any Principal
Property, as defined below, or upon any shares of capital stock of any
subsidiary owning or leasing any Principal Property, whether owned or leased on
the date of the indenture or thereafter acquired, to secure any of our debt or
debt of any other person, other than the notes issued under the indenture,
without making effective provision for all of the notes outstanding under the
indenture to be secured equally and ratably with, or prior to, that debt so
long as that debt is so secured.

   "Principal Property" means, whether owned or leased on the date of the
indenture or thereafter acquired, any pipeline, terminal or other logistics
asset of ours or any subsidiary, including any related asset employed in the
transportation, distribution, storage, terminalling, processing or marketing of
crude oil, refined products (including gasoline, on-road and off-road diesel
fuel, liquefied petroleum gas, and petrochemicals) or fuel additives, that is
located in the United States of America or any territory or political
subdivision thereof, except:

      (1) any of those assets consisting of inventories, furniture, office
   fixtures and equipment, including data processing equipment, vehicles and
   equipment used on, or with, vehicles; and

      (2) any of those assets, plants or terminals, which, in the opinion of
   the board of directors of Sunoco Logistics Partners GP LLC, our general
   partner, is not material in relation to our activities or our subsidiaries,
   taken as a whole.

   whether that debt was incurred prior to, at the time of or within one year
   after the date of the acquisition;

      (3) any lien upon any property or asset to secure all or part of the cost
   of construction, development, repair or improvements thereon or to secure

   of full operations thereof, whichever is later, to provide funds for that
   purpose;

      (5) any lien upon any property or asset of an entity existing thereon at

   rights;

   lien extended, renewed, refinanced, refunded or replaced and that the
   obligations secured by any extension, renewal, refinancing, refunding or
   replacement lien shall be in an amount not greater than the amount of the

Principal Property to secure debt of ours or any person, other than the notes,
that is not excepted by clauses (1) through (9) above, without securing the

   to holders of notes outstanding under the indenture in connection with the
   refunding, refinancing or repurchase, and the required corresponding
   durations thereof), to refinance, refund or repurchase all notes outstanding

<PAGE>

        names, trademarks, patents and other like intangible assets,

all as set forth, or as on a pro forma basis would set forth, on our

prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles.

Restriction on Sale-Leasebacks

   The indenture provides that we will not, and will not permit any of our
subsidiaries to, engage in the sale or transfer by us or any subsidiary of any
Principal Property to a person, other than us or a subsidiary, and the taking
back by us or any subsidiary, as the case may be, of a lease of the Principal
Property, which we call a Sale-Leaseback Transaction, unless:

      (1) the Sale-Leaseback Transaction occurs within one year from the date
   of completion of the acquisition of the Principal Property subject thereto
   or the date of the completion of construction, development or substantial
   repair or improvement, or commencement of full operations on the Principal
   Property, whichever is later;

      (2) the Sale-Leaseback Transaction involves a lease for a period,
   including renewals, of not more than three years;

      (3) we or a subsidiary would be entitled to incur debt secured by a lien
   on the Principal Property subject thereto in a principal amount equal to or
   exceeding the Attributable Indebtedness from the Sale-Leaseback Transaction
   without equally and ratably securing the notes; or

      (4) we or a subsidiary, within a one-year period after the Sale-Leaseback
   Transaction, applies or causes to be applied an amount not less than the
   Attributable Indebtedness from the Sale-Leaseback Transaction to:

       .  the prepayment, repayment, redemption, reduction or retirement of any
          of our debt or debt of any subsidiary that is not subordinated to the
          notes; or

       .  the expenditure or expenditures for Principal Property used or to be
          used in the ordinary course of our business or the business of our
          subsidiaries.

   "Attributable Indebtedness," when used with respect to any Sale-Leaseback
Transaction, means, as at the time of determination, the present value,
discounted at the rate set forth or implicit in the terms of the lease included
in the transaction, of the total obligations of the lessee for rental payments,
other than amounts required to be paid on account of property taxes,
maintenance, repairs, insurance, assessments, utilities, operating and labor
costs and other items that constitute payments for property rights, during the
remaining term of the lease included in the Sale-Leaseback Transaction,
including any period for which the lease has been extended. In the case of any
lease that is terminable by the lessee upon the payment of a penalty or other
termination payment, the amount shall be the lesser of the amount determined
assuming termination upon the first date the lease may be terminated, in which
case the amount shall also include the amount of the penalty or termination
payment, but no rent shall be considered as required to be paid under the lease
subsequent to the first date upon which it may be so terminated, or the amount
determined assuming no termination.

   Notwithstanding the foregoing, the indenture provides that we may, and may
permit any subsidiary to, effect any Sale-Leaseback Transaction that is not
excepted by clauses (1) through (4), inclusive, of the first paragraph above,
provided that the Attributable Indebtedness from the Sale-Leaseback
Transaction, together with the aggregate principal amount of outstanding debt,
other than the notes, secured by liens upon Principal Properties not excepted
by clauses (1) through (9), inclusive, of the first paragraph of the limitation
on liens covenant described above, do not exceed 10% of the Consolidated Net
Tangible Assets. (Section 1007)

                                      121


<PAGE>

Consolidation, Merger or Asset Sale

   The indenture generally allows us and our subsidiaries that are guarantors
to consolidate or merge with a domestic partnership or corporation. It also
allows us and our subsidiaries that are guarantors to sell, lease or transfer
all or substantially all of our property and assets to a domestic partnership
or corporation. If this happens, the remaining or acquiring partnership or
corporation must assume, as applicable, all of our and our guarantor
subsidiaries' responsibilities and liabilities under the indenture, including
the payment of all amounts due on the notes and performance of the covenants in
the indenture.

   However, neither we nor any of our subsidiaries that are also guarantors
will consolidate or merge with or into any other partnership or corporation or
sell, lease or transfer all or substantially all of our or their assets unless
such action is in accordance with the terms and conditions of the indenture,
which include the following:

     .  the remaining or acquiring partnership or corporation expressly assumes
        the obligations under the indenture;

     .  the remaining or acquiring partnership or corporation is organized
        under the laws of the United States, any state or the District of
        Columbia;

     .  immediately after giving effect to the transaction, no default or Event
        of Default exists; and

     .  we deliver to the trustee an officers' certificate and an opinion of
        counsel regarding compliance with the terms of the indenture.

   The remaining or acquiring partnership or corporation will be substituted
for us in the indenture with the same effect as if it had been an original
party to the indenture. Thereafter, the successor may exercise our rights and
powers under the indenture, in our name or in its own name. If we sell or
transfer all or substantially all of our assets, we will be released from all
our liabilities and obligations under any indenture and under the notes. If we
lease all or substantially all of our assets, we will not be released from our
obligations under the indenture. (Sections 801 and 802)

   If, at any time, any of our subsidiaries are required to guaranty the notes,
the restriction on our ability to consolidate or merge and to sell, lease or
transfer all or substantially all of our property and assets also will apply to
that subsidiary.

Repurchase upon a Change of Control

   The indenture provides that, upon the occurrence of a Change of Control, we
will make an offer to purchase all or any part (equal to $1,000 or an integral
multiple thereof) of the notes pursuant to the offer described below (the
"Change of Control Offer") at a price in cash (the "Change of Control Payment")
equal to 100% of the aggregate principal amount thereof plus accrued and unpaid
interest, if any, to the date of purchase. The indenture provides that within
30 days following any Change of Control, we will mail a notice to each holder
of notes issued under the indenture, with a copy to the trustee, with the
following information:

     (1)a Change of Control Offer is being made and all notes properly tendered
        pursuant to such Change of Control Offer will be accepted for payment;

     (2)the purchase price and the purchase date, which will be no earlier than
        30 days nor later than 60 days from the date such notice is mailed,
        except as may be otherwise required by applicable law (the "Change of
        Control Payment Date");

     (3)any note not properly tendered will remain outstanding and continue to
        accrue interest;

     (4)unless we default in the payment of the Change of Control Payment, all
        notes accepted for payment pursuant to the Change of Control Offer will
        cease to accrue interest on the Change of Control Payment Date;

                                      122

     (5)holders electing to have any notes purchased pursuant to a Change of
        Control Offer will be required to surrender the notes, with the form
        entitled "Option of Holder to Elect Purchase" on the reverse of the
        notes completed, to the paying agent specified in the notice at the
        address specified in the notice prior to the close of business on the
        third business day preceding the Change of Control Payment Date;

     (6)holders will be entitled to withdraw their tendered notes and their
        election to require us to purchase such notes, provided that the paying
        agent receives, not later than the close of business on the last day of
        the Offer Period (as defined in the indenture), a telegram, telex,
        facsimile transmission or letter setting forth the name of the holder,
        the principal amount of notes tendered for purchase, and a statement
        that such holder is withdrawing his tendered notes and his election to
        have such notes purchased; and

     (7)that holders whose notes are being purchased only in part will be
        issued new notes equal in principal amount to the unpurchased portion
        of the notes surrendered, which unpurchased portion must be equal to
        $1,000 in principal amount or an integral multiple thereof.

   We will comply with the requirements of Rule 14e-1 under the Exchange Act
and any other securities laws and regulations thereunder to the extent such
laws or regulations are applicable in connection with the repurchase of the
notes pursuant to a Change of Control Offer. To the extent that the provisions
of any securities laws or regulations conflict with the provisions of the
indenture, we will comply with the applicable securities laws and regulations
and shall not be deemed to have breached its obligations described in the
indenture by virtue thereof.

   The indenture provides that on the Change of Control Payment Date, we will,
to the extent permitted by law,

     (1)accept for payment all notes or portions thereof properly tendered
        pursuant to the Change of Control Offer,

     (2)deposit with the paying agent an amount equal to the aggregate Change
        of Control Payment in respect of all notes or portions thereof so
        tendered, and

     (3)deliver, or cause to be delivered, to the trustee for cancellation the
        notes so accepted together with an officers' certificate stating that
        such notes or portions thereof have been tendered to and purchased by
        us.

   The indenture provides that the paying agent will promptly mail to each
holder of notes the Change of Control Payment for such notes, and the trustee
will promptly authenticate and mail to each holder a new note equal in
principal amount to any unpurchased portion of the notes surrendered, if any,
provided, that each such new note will be in a principal amount of $1,000 or an
integral multiple thereof. We will publicly announce the results of the Change
of Control Offer on or as soon as practicable after the Change of Control
Payment Date. (Section 1011)

   "Change of Control" means the occurrence of any transaction that results in:

     (1)the failure of Sunoco, Inc. or an Investment Grade Person, as defined,
        to own, directly or indirectly, 51% of the general partner interests in
        the master partnership;

     (2)the failure of the master partnership or an Investment Grade Person to
        own, directly or indirectly, all of the general partner interests in
        us; or

     (3)the failure of the master partnership or an Investment Grade Person to
        own, directly or indirectly, all of the limited partnership interests
        in us.

   "Investment Grade Person" means an entity that has issued unsecured senior
debt that has one of the following ratings on the date the transaction
constituting a Change of Control is consummated:

     .  BBB- or above, in the case of Standard & Poor's Ratings Services, a
        Division of The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc. (or its equivalent under
        any successor rating categories of S&P);

                                      123


<PAGE>

     .  Baa3 or above, in the case of Moody's Investors Services, Inc. (or its
        equivalent under any successor rating categories of Moody's); or

     .  the equivalent in respect of the rating categories of any rating
        agencies substituted for S&P or Moody's.

Events of Default and Remedies

   In the indenture, "Event of Default" means any of the following:

     .  failure to pay interest on any note for 30 days;

     .  failure to pay the principal of or any premium on any note when due,
        whether at stated maturity or by declaration of acceleration, call for
        redemption, required purchase or otherwise;

     .  failure to perform any other covenant in the indenture that continues
        for 60 days after being given written notice;

     .  the acceleration of the maturity of any other debt of ours or any of
        our subsidiaries or a default in the payment of any principal or
        interest in respect of any other indebtedness of us or any of our
        subsidiaries having an outstanding principal amount of $10 million or
        more individually or in the aggregate and such default shall be
        continuing for a period of 30 days; or

     .  our bankruptcy, insolvency or reorganization. (Section 501)

   An Event of Default under the notes will not necessarily constitute an event
of default under our other indebtedness or vice versa. The trustee may withhold
notice to the holders of notes of any default, except in the payment of
principal or interest, if it considers such withholding of notice to be in the
best interest of the holders. (Section 602)

   If an Event of Default occurs and continues, the trustee or the holders of
at least 25% in aggregate principal amount of the notes may declare the entire
principal of all the notes to be due and payable immediately. If this happens,
subject to certain conditions, the holders of a majority of the aggregate
principal amount of the notes can void the declaration. (Section 502)

   Other than its duties in case of a default, the trustee is not obligated to
exercise any of its rights or powers under the indenture at the request, order
or direction of any holders, unless the holders offer the trustee reasonable
indemnity. (Section 601) If the holders provide this reasonable indemnity, the
holders of a majority in principal amount of the notes may direct the time,
method and place of conducting any proceeding for any remedy available to the
trustee, or exercising any power conferred upon the trustee, for the notes.
(Section 512)

Modification of the Indenture

   We may amend or supplement the indenture or waive any provision of the
indenture without the consent of any holders of notes in certain circumstances,
including amendments and supplements to:

     .  secure the notes;

     .  provide for the assumption of our obligations under the indenture by a
        successor upon any merger, consolidation or asset transfer;

     .  add or release a subsidiary as a guarantor;

     .  add covenants and Events of Default that would benefit the holders of
        notes or to surrender any rights we have under the indenture;

                                      124


<PAGE>

     .  provide for uncertificated notes in addition to or in place of
        certificated notes or to provide for bearer notes;

     .  cure any ambiguity or correct any inconsistency;

     .  comply with any requirement to effect or maintain the qualification of
        the indenture under the Trust Indenture Act of 1939;

     .  amend the indenture to issue additional notes; and

     .  supplement the indenture to permit or facilitate the defeasance and
        discharge of the notes, provided such action does not adversely affect
        the interests of the holders of the notes. (Section 901)

   In addition, we may amend or supplement the indenture if the holders of a
majority in principal amount of the notes consent to it. Without the consent of
the holder of each note, however, no amendment or modification may:

     .  reduce the amount of notes whose holders must consent to an amendment,
        supplement or waiver;

     .  reduce the principal of the note or change its stated maturity;

     .  reduce the rate of or change the time for payment of interest on the
        note;

     .  make any change in the percentage of principal amount of notes
        necessary to waive compliance with certain provisions of the indenture
        or to make any change in this provision for modification;

     .  reduce any premium payable on the redemption of the note or change the
        time at which the note may or must be redeemed;

     .  make payments on the note payable in currency other than as originally
        stated in the note;

     .  impair the holder's right to institute suit for the enforcement of any
        payment on the note; or

     .  waive a continuing default or event of default regarding any payment on
        the notes. (Section 902)

   The holders of a majority in principal amount of the outstanding notes may
waive any existing or past default or event of default with respect to the
notes. Those holders may not, however, waive any default or event of default in
any payment on any note or compliance with a provision that cannot be amended
or supplemented without the consent of each holder affected.

No Personal Liability

   Neither Sunoco Logistics Partners GP LLC, our general partner, nor any of
its or any of our or our guarantors' directors, officers, employees, members or
unitholders will have any liability for our or our guarantors' obligations
under the indenture or the notes. Each holder of notes by accepting a note
waives and releases all such liability. The waiver and release are part of the
consideration for the issuance of the notes. (Section 1201)

Discharging Our Obligations

   We and the guarantors may choose to discharge some or all of our obligations
under the indenture in a defeasance. If we deposit with the trustee funds or
government securities sufficient to make payments on the notes on the dates
those payments are due and payable, then, at our option, either of the
following will occur:

     .  we will be discharged from our obligations with respect to the notes,
        which we call a legal defeasance; or

     .  we will no longer have any obligation to comply with the restrictive
        covenants under the indenture, and the related events of default will
        no longer apply to us, which we call a covenant defeasance.

                                      125


<PAGE>

   If we defease the notes, the holders of the notes will not be entitled to
the benefits of the indenture, except for our obligations to register the
transfer or exchange of notes, replace stolen, lost or mutilated notes or
maintain paying agencies and hold moneys for payment in trust. In the case of
covenant defeasance, our obligation to pay principal, premium and interest on
the notes will also survive. (Section 1302)

   We will be required to deliver to the trustee an opinion of counsel that the
deposit and related defeasance would not cause the holders of the notes to
recognize income, gain or loss for federal income tax purposes. If we elect
legal defeasance, that opinion of counsel must be based upon a ruling from the
United States Internal Revenue Service or a change in law to that effect.

The Trustee

   Wachovia Bank, National Association (formerly First Union National Bank)
will initially act as trustee under the indenture. The trustee performs
services for us in the ordinary course of business.

   The trustee may resign or be removed by us with respect to the notes and a
successor trustee may be appointed to act with respect to the notes. The
holders of a majority in aggregate principal amount of the notes may remove the
trustee. (Section 610)

   If the trustee becomes one of our creditors, it will be subject to
limitations in the indenture on its rights to obtain payment of claims or to
realize on certain property received for any such claim, as security or
otherwise. The trustee is permitted to engage in other transactions with us.
If, however, it acquires any conflicting interest, it must eliminate that
conflict or resign.

Global Notes; Book-Entry System

Global Notes

   The new notes will be issued in the form of a permanent global note in fully
registered, book-entry form, without coupons, which will be deposited with the
trustee, as custodian for The Depository Trust Company ("DTC"), registered in
the name of DTC's nominee, in each case for credit to an account of a direct or
indirect participant in DTC as described below.

   A global note is a special type of individually held note. Because we will
issue the new notes only in the form of global notes, the ultimate beneficial
owners can only be indirect holders. We do this by requiring that the global
notes be registered in the name of Cede & Co. and by requiring that the notes
included in the global notes not be transferred to the name of any other direct
holder unless the special circumstances described below occur. The financial
institution that acts as the sole direct holder of the global note is called
the depositary. Any person wishing to own a new note must do so indirectly by
virtue of an account with a bank, broker or other financial institution that in
turn has an account with the DTC.

  Special Investor Considerations for Global Notes

   As an indirect holder, an investor's rights relating to the global notes
will be governed by the account rules of the investor's bank, broker or other
financial institution and of the depositary, as well as general laws relating
to securities transfers. We do not recognize this type of investor as a holder
of notes and instead deal only with the depositary that holds the global notes.

   If you are an investor, you should be aware that:

     .  you cannot get notes registered in your own name;

     .  you cannot receive physical certificates for your interest in the notes;

                                      126


<PAGE>

     .  you will be a street name holder and must look to your own bank, broker
        or other financial institution for payments on the notes and protection
        of your legal rights relating to the notes;

     .  you may not be able to sell or pledge interests in the notes to some
        insurance companies and other institutions that are required by law to
        own their securities in the form of physical certificates; and

     .  the depositary's policies will govern payments, transfers, exchange and
        other matters relating to your interest in the global notes. We and the
        trustee have no responsibility for any aspect of the depositary's
        actions or for its records of ownership interest in the global notes.
        We and the trustee also do not supervise the depositary in any way.

  Special Situations When Global Notes Will Be Terminated

   In a few special situations described in the next paragraph, the global
notes will terminate and interests in them will be exchanged for physical
certificates representing notes. After that exchange, the choice of whether to
hold notes directly or in street name will be up to you. You must consult your
own bank, broker or other financial institution to find out how to have your
interests in the notes transferred to your own name, so that you will be a
direct holder.

   The special situations for termination of the global notes are:

     .  when DTC notifies us that it is unwilling, unable or no longer
        qualified to continue as depositary;

     .  when we notify the trustee that we wish to terminate the global notes;
        and

     .  when an event of default on the notes has occurred and has not been
        cured, disregarding for this purpose any requirement of notice or that
        the default exist for a specified period of time.

   In all cases, certificated notes delivered in exchange for any global note
or beneficial interests in such global note will be registered in the names,
and issued in any approved denominations, requested by or on behalf of the
depositary, in accordance with its customary procedures. Any certificated note
issued in exchange for an interest in a global note will bear any legend
restricting transfers that is borne by such global note. Any such exchange will
be effected through the DWAC system and an appropriate adjustment will be made
in the records of the registrar of the notes to reflect a decrease in the
principal amount of the relevant global note.

Certain Book-Entry Procedures for the Global Notes

   The descriptions of the operations and procedures of DTC set forth below are
provided solely as a matter of convenience. These operations and procedures are
solely within the control of DTC and are subject to change by them from time to
time. We do not take any responsibility for these operations or procedures, and
investors are urged to contact the relevant system or its participants directly
to discuss these matters.

   DTC has advised us that it is a limited-purpose trust company organized
under the New York Banking Law, a member of the Federal Reserve System, and a
"clearing agency" registered pursuant to the provisions of Section 17A of the
Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. DTC holds securities that its
participants ("participants") deposit with DTC. DTC also facilitates settlement
of securities transactions among its participants, such as transfers and
pledges in deposited securities through electronic computerized book-entry
changes in accounts of the participants, thereby eliminating the need for
physical movement of securities certificates.

   "Direct participants" in DTC include securities brokers and dealers and
banks. DTC is owned by members of the financial industry. Access to DTC's
book-entry system is also available to others, such as banks, securities
brokers and dealers that clear through or maintain a custodial relationship
with a direct participant, either directly or indirectly ("indirect
participants").

                                      127


<PAGE>

   Purchases of the notes under DTC's book-entry system must be made by or
through direct participants, which will receive a credit for the notes on the
records of DTC. The ownership interest of each actual purchaser of the notes,
which we refer to as the "beneficial owner," is in turn to be recorded on the
participants' records. Beneficial owners will not receive written confirmation
from DTC of their purchase, but beneficial owners are expected to receive
written confirmations providing details of the transactions, as well as
periodic statements of their holdings from the direct or indirect participant
through which the beneficial owner entered into the transaction. Transfers of
ownership interests in the global notes will be effected only through entries
made on the books of participants acting on behalf of beneficial owners.
Beneficial owners will not receive certificates representing their ownership
interests in the global notes, except in the event that use of the book-entry
system for the notes is discontinued. The laws of some states require that
certain purchasers of securities take physical delivery of such securities in
definitive form. Such limits and such laws may impair the ability to own,
transfer or pledge beneficial interests in the global notes.

   To facilitate subsequent transfers, all global notes deposited by
participants with DTC are registered in the name of DTC's partnership nominee,
Cede & Co. The deposit of the global notes with DTC and their registration in
the name of Cede & Co. effect no change in beneficial ownership. DTC has no
knowledge of the actual beneficial owners of the notes; DTC's records reflect
only the identity of the direct participants to whose accounts such notes are
credited, which may or may not be the beneficial owners. The participants will
remain responsible for keeping account of their holdings on behalf of their
customers.

   So long as DTC or its nominee is the registered owner and holder of the
global notes, DTC or its nominee, as the case may be, will be considered the
sole owner or holder of the notes represented by the global notes for all
purposes under the indenture. Except as provided below, beneficial owners of
interests in the global notes will not be entitled to have book-entry notes
represented by the notes registered in their names, will not receive or be
entitled to receive physical delivery of notes in definitive form and will not
be considered the owners or holders thereof under the indenture. Accordingly,
each beneficial owner must rely on the procedures of DTC and, if the person is
not a participant, on the procedures of the participants through which such
person owns its interest, to exercise any rights of a holder under the
indenture. We understand that under existing industry practices, in the event
that we request any action of holders of notes or that an owner of a beneficial
interest in the notes desires to give or take any action which a holder is
entitled to give or take under the indenture, DTC would authorize the
participants holding the relevant beneficial interests to give or take the
action, and the participants would authorize beneficial owners owning through
the participants to give or to take the action or would otherwise act upon the
instructions of beneficial owners. Conveyance of notices and other
communications by DTC to participants, by participants to indirect
participants, and by participants and indirect participants to beneficial
owners, will be governed by arrangements among them, subject to any statutory
or regulatory requirements as may be in effect from time to time.

   Payments of principal of and interest on the new notes will be made to DTC.
We will send all required reports and notices solely to DTC as long as DTC is
the registered holder of the global notes. Neither we, the trustee, nor any
other agent of ours or agent of the trustee will have any responsibility or
liability for any aspect of the records relating to, or payments made on
account of, beneficial ownership interests in global notes or for maintaining,
supervising or reviewing any records relating to the beneficial ownership
interests. DTC's practice is to credit the accounts of the direct participants
with payment in amounts proportionate to their respective holdings in principal
amount of beneficial interest in a security as shown on the records of DTC,
unless DTC has reason to believe that it will not receive payment on the
payment date. Payments by participants to beneficial owners will be governed by
standing instructions and customary practices, as is the case with securities
held for the accounts of customers in bearer form or registered in "street
name," and will be the responsibility of the participants.

                                      128


<PAGE>

Same Day Settlement

   The global notes will trade in DTC's Same-Day Funds Settlement System and,
therefore, transfers between participants in DTC will be effected in accordance
with DTC's procedures, and will be settled in immediately available funds.
Transfers between indirect participants who hold an interest through a
participant will be effected in accordance with the procedures of such
participant but generally will settle in immediately available funds.

                                      129

                           OUR PARTNERSHIP AGREEMENT

   The following paragraphs are a summary of the material provisions of our
partnership agreement. The discussion presented below is qualified in its
entirety by reference to our partnership agreement.

Organization and Duration

   We were organized on December 6, 2001 as the operating company of Sunoco
Logistics Partners L.P. The master partnership owns a 99.99% limited partner
interest in us and our general partner owns a 0.01% general partner interest in
us. Our general partner manages and operates our business.

Cash Distributions

   We will distribute to the master partnership and our general partner, on a
quarterly basis, all of our available cash, commencing with the period ended
March 31, 2002. Distributions will be made 0.01% to our general partner and
99.99% to the master partnership. Available cash is generally all cash on hand,
plus working capital borrowings, as adjusted for reserves. The timing and
amount of our distributions to the master partnership could significantly
reduce the cash available to pay the principal, premium, if any, and interest
on the notes. Our general partner will determine the amount and timing of such
distributions and has broad discretion to establish and make additions to
reserves, for any proper purpose, including but not limited to reserves for the
purpose of (i) the proper conduct of our business, (ii) complying with the
terms of any applicable law, agreement or obligation (including the
establishment of reserves to fund the payment of interest and principal in the
future, including on the notes), and (iii) providing funds for minimum
quarterly distributions by the master partnership for any one or more of the
next four quarters.

Indemnification

   Our partnership agreement provides that we will indemnify our general
partner, any departing partner, any person who is or was an affiliate of our
general partner or a departing partner, any person who is or was a member,
partner, officer, director, employee, agent or trustee of our general partner,
any departing partner or any person who is or was serving at the request of our
general partner, any departing partner, or an affiliate of any such person, any
affiliate of our general partner as an officer, director, employee, member,
partner, agent, fiduciary or trustee of another person ("Indemnitees"), to the
fullest extent permitted by law, from and against any and all losses, claims,
damages, liabilities (joint or several), expenses (including legal fees and
expenses), judgments, fines, penalties, interest, settlements or other amounts
arising from any and all claims, demands, actions, suits or proceedings,
whether civil, criminal, administrative or investigative, in which any
Indemnitee may be involved, or is threatened to be involved, as a party or
otherwise, by reason of its status as an Indemnitee; provided that in each case
the Indemnitee acted in good faith and in a manner that such Indemnitee
reasonably believed to be in, or (in the case of a person other than our
general partner) not opposed to, our best interests and, with respect to any
criminal proceedings, had no reasonable cause to believe its conduct was
unlawful; provided, further, no indemnification is available to the general
partner with respect to certain of its contractual obligations. Any
indemnification under these provisions will only be out of our assets, and our
general partner shall not be personally liable for, nor have any obligation to
contribute or loan money or property to us to enable us to pay the
indemnification. We are authorized to purchase and maintain (or to reimburse
our general partner or its affiliates for the cost of) insurance against
liabilities asserted against and expenses incurred by such persons in
connection with our activities, regardless of whether we would have the power
to indemnify such persons as described above.

Termination and Dissolution

   We will continue in existence until our dissolution as provided in our
partnership agreement. We will be dissolved upon:

   . the withdrawal of our general partner in the event no successor is
     admitted;

                                      130


<PAGE>

   . an election to dissolve us by the general partner that is approved by the
     limited partners;

   . the entry of a decree of judicial dissolution of us;

   . the sale of all or substantially all of the assets and properties of us
     and our subsidiaries; and

   . the dissolution of the master partnership.

Liquidation and Distribution of Proceeds

   Upon our dissolution, unless we are reconstituted and continued as a new
limited partnership, our liquidator, acting with all powers that are conferred
on our general partner, may liquidate our assets and apply the proceeds of the
liquidation as follows:

   . first towards discharge of liabilities; and

   . then to the master partnership and our general partner (or such other
     partners as may exist at the time) in accordance with their respective
     capital account balances.

Under certain circumstances and subject to certain limitations, our liquidator
may defer liquidation or distribution of our assets for a reasonable period of
time or distribute assets to our partners in kind if it determines that a sale
would be impractical or would cause undue loss to the partners.

Removal and Withdrawal of our General Partner

   Our general partner may be removed as our general partner by the master
partnership. Upon removal by the master partnership, the master partnership is
to elect a successor general partner.

   Our general partner is deemed withdrawn as a general partner upon:

   . written notice to the other partners;

   . transfer by the general partner of all of its rights as general partner;

   . removal of the general partner by the master partnership;

   . bankruptcy or similar event of the general partner; and

   . dissolution of the general partner.

Amendment of our Partnership Agreement

   Subject to certain exceptions, our partnership agreement may only be amended
by our general partner with the approval of our limited partners.

                                      131


<PAGE>

                CERTAIN RELATIONSHIPS AND RELATED TRANSACTIONS

   As of March 31, 2002, the master partnership's general partner owned
5,633,639 common units and 11,383,639 subordinated units representing a 73.2%
limited partner interest in the master partnership. In addition, the master
partnership's general partner owns a 2% general partner interest in the master
partnership. The general partner's ability, as the master partnership's general
partner, to manage and operate us and the master partnership and its ownership
of a 73.2% limited partner interest in the master partnership effectively gives
the general partner the ability to veto some actions of Sunoco Logistics
Partners or us and to control the management of Sunoco Logistics Partners or us.

Distributions and Payments to the Master Partnership's General Partner and Its
Affiliates

   The following table summarizes the distributions and payments made and to be
made by us to our master partnership's general partner and its affiliates in
connection with the ongoing operation, and liquidation of Sunoco Logistics
Partners and us. These distributions and payments were determined by and among
affiliated entities and, consequently, are not the result of arm's-length
negotiations.

                               Operational Stage

Payments to our master
  partnership's general
  partner and its
  affiliates................  We will pay Sunoco, Inc. or its affiliates an
                              administrative fee, initially $8.0 million per
                              year, for the provision of various general and
                              administrative services for our benefit. In
                              addition, the master partnership's general
                              partner is entitled to reimbursement for all
                              expenses it incurs on our behalf, including other
                              general and administrative expenses. These
                              reimbursable expenses include the salaries and
                              the cost of employee benefits of employees of the
                              master partnership's general partner who provide
                              services to us. Please read "--Omnibus
                              Agreement." Our master partnership's general
                              partner has sole discretion in determining the
                              amount of these expenses.

Removal or withdrawal of our
  master partnership's
  general partner...........  If our master partnership's general partner
                              withdraws or is removed, its general partner
                              interest and its incentive distribution rights
                              will either be sold to the new general partner
                              for cash or converted into common units, in each
                              case for an amount equal to the fair market value
                              of those interests. Please read "Our Partnership
                              Agreement--Removal and Withdrawal of our General
                              Partner."

Liquidation.................  Upon our liquidation, the partners, including our
                              general partner, will be entitled to receive
                              liquidating distributions according to their
                              particular capital account balances.

Agreements Governing the Transactions

   In connection with its initial public offering, the master partnership and
other parties have entered into various agreements with us and our
subsidiaries. These agreements were not the result of arm's-length
negotiations, and they, or any of the transactions that they provide for, may
be effected on terms at least as favorable to the parties to these agreements
as they could have been obtained from unaffiliated third parties. All

                                      132


<PAGE>

of the transaction expenses incurred in connection with these transactions,
including the expenses associated with vesting assets into our subsidiaries,
were paid from the proceeds of the initial public offering of common units by
the master partnership. The master partnership's general partner has agreed
that if, during the term of the pipelines and terminals storage and throughput
agreement, we are required by the FERC to reduce any of our tariffs, the master
partnership's general partner will contribute an amount to us equal to the
resulting shortfall in revenues from Sunoco R&M movements for the remaining
term of the agreement.

Omnibus Agreement

   On February 8, 2002, the master partnership entered into an omnibus
agreement with Sunoco, Inc., Sunoco R&M, and our master partnership's general
partner that addresses the following matters:

   . Sunoco R&M's obligation to reimburse us for specified operating expenses
     and capital expenditures or otherwise to complete certain tank maintenance
     and inspection projects;

   . our obligation to pay our master partnership's general partner or Sunoco,
     Inc. an annual administrative fee, initially in the amount of $8.0
     million, for the provision by Sunoco, Inc. of certain general and
     administrative services;

   . Sunoco, Inc.'s and its affiliates' agreement not to compete with us under
     certain circumstances;

   . our agreement to undertake to develop and construct or acquire an asset if
     requested by Sunoco, Inc.;

   . an indemnity by Sunoco, Inc. for certain environmental, toxic tort and
     other liabilities;

   . our obligation to indemnify Sunoco, Inc. and its affiliates for events and
     conditions associated with the operation of our assets that occur on or
     after the closing of this offering and for environmental and toxic tort
     liabilities related to our assets to the extent Sunoco, Inc. is not
     required to indemnify us; and

   . our option to purchase certain pipeline, terminalling, and storage assets
     retained by Sunoco, Inc. or its affiliates.

Reimbursement of Expenses and Completion of Certain Projects by Sunoco, Inc.

   The omnibus agreement requires Sunoco R&M to:

   . reimburse us for any operating expenses and capital expenditures in excess
     of $8.0 million per year in each year from 2002 to 2006 that are made to
     comply with the DOT's pipeline integrity management rule, subject to a
     maximum aggregate reimbursement of $15.0 million over this five-year
     period;

   . complete, at its expense, certain tank maintenance and inspection projects
     currently in progress or expected to be completed at the Darby Creek Tank
     Farm within one year; and

   . reimburse us for up to $10.0 million of expenditures required at the
     Marcus Hook Tank Farm and the Darby Creek Tank Farm to maintain compliance
     with existing industry standards and regulatory requirements, including:

--cathodicprotection upgrades at these facilities;

--raisingtank farm pipelines above ground level at these facilities; and

--repairingor demolishing two riveted tanks at the Marcus Hook Tank Farm.

   We will reflect outlays for these programs as operating expenses or capital
expenditures, as appropriate. Capital expenditures would be depreciated over
their useful lives. The reimbursement by Sunoco R&M will be reflected as a
capital contribution.

                                      133

Payment of General and Administrative Services Fee

   In addition, under the omnibus agreement we will pay Sunoco, Inc. or our
master partnership's general partner an annual administrative fee, initially in
the amount of $8.0 million, for the provision of various general and
administrative services for our benefit. The contract provides that this amount
may be increased in the second and third years following the master
partnership's initial public offering by the lesser of 2.5% or the consumer
price index for the applicable year. Our master partnership's general partner,
with the approval and consent of its conflict committee, will also have the
right to agree to further increases in connection with expansions of our
operations through the acquisition or construction of new assets or businesses.
After this three-year period, our general partner will determine the general
and administrative expenses that will be allocated to us. Please read "Risk
Factors--Risks Inherent in an Investment in Us."

   The $8.0 million fee includes expenses incurred by Sunoco, Inc. and its
affiliates to perform centralized corporate functions, such as legal,
accounting, treasury, engineering, information technology, insurance, and other
corporate services, including the administration of employee benefit plans. The
fee does not include salaries of pipeline and terminal personnel or other
employees of our general partner, including senior executives, or the cost of
their employee benefits, such as 401(k), pension, and health insurance
benefits. We will also reimburse Sunoco, Inc. and its affiliates for direct
expenses they incur on our behalf. In addition, we anticipate incurring
approximately $4 million of additional general and administrative costs,
including costs relating to operating as a separate publicly held entity, such
as costs for tax return preparation, annual and quarterly reports to
unitholders, and investor relations and registrar and transfer agent fees, as
well as incremental insurance costs.

Development or Acquisition of an Asset By Us

   The omnibus agreement also contains a provision pursuant to which Sunoco,
Inc. may at any time propose to us that we undertake a project to develop and
construct or acquire an asset. If our general partner determines in its good
faith judgment, with the concurrence of its conflicts committee, that the
project, including the terms on which Sunoco, Inc. would agree to use such
asset, will be beneficial on the whole to us and that proceeding with the
project will not effectively preclude us from undertaking another project that
will be more beneficial to us, we will be required to use commercially
reasonable efforts to finance, develop, and construct or acquire the asset.

Noncompetition

   Sunoco, Inc. agreed, and will cause its affiliates to agree, for so long as
Sunoco, Inc. controls the master partnership's general partner, not to engage
in, whether by acquisition or otherwise, the business of purchasing crude oil
at the wellhead or operating crude oil pipelines or terminals, refined products
pipelines or terminals, or LPG terminals in the continental United States. This
restriction does not apply to:

   . any business operated by Sunoco, Inc. or any of its subsidiaries at the
     closing of the master partnership's initial public offering;

   . any logistics asset constructed by Sunoco, Inc. or any of its subsidiaries
     within a manufacturing or refining facility in connection with the
     operation of that facility;

   . any business that Sunoco, Inc. or any of its subsidiaries acquires or
     constructs that has a fair market value of less than $5.0 million; and

   . any business that Sunoco, Inc. or any of its subsidiaries acquires or
     constructs that has a fair market value of $5.0 million or more if we have
     been offered the opportunity to purchase the business for fair market
     value not later than six months after completion of such acquisition or
     construction, and we decline to do so with the concurrence of our
     conflicts committee.

   In addition, the limitations on the ability of Sunoco, Inc. and its
affiliates to compete with us will terminate upon a change of control of
Sunoco, Inc.

                                      134


<PAGE>

Options to Purchase Assets Retained by Sunoco, Inc.

   The omnibus agreement also contains the terms under which we have the
options to purchase Sunoco, Inc.'s direct or indirect interests in Mid-Valley
Pipeline Company, West Texas Gulf Pipeline Company, Mesa Pipeline and Inland
Corporation, as well as the Icedale pipeline, as described under
"Business--Pipeline, Terminalling, and Storage Assets Retained by Sunoco, Inc."

Indemnification

   Under the omnibus agreement, Sunoco, Inc. agreed to indemnify us for 30
years after the closing of the master partnership's initial public offering
against certain environmental and toxic tort liabilities associated with the
operation of the assets and occurring before the closing date of the initial
public offering. This indemnity obligation will be reduced by 10% per year
beginning with the 22nd year after the closing of the initial public offering.
We agreed to indemnify Sunoco, Inc. and its affiliates for events and
conditions associated with the operation of our assets that occur on or after
the closing of the initial public offering and for environmental and toxic tort
liabilities related to our assets to the extent Sunoco, Inc. is not required to
indemnify us. Please read "Business--Environmental Regulation--General."

   Sunoco, Inc. also agreed to indemnify us for liabilities relating to:

   . the assets contributed to us, other than environmental and toxic tort
     liabilities, that arise out of the operation of the assets prior to the
     closing of the initial public offering and that are asserted within ten
     years after the closing of the initial public offering;

   . certain defects in title to the assets contributed to us and failure to
     obtain certain consents and permits necessary to conduct our business that
     arise within ten years after the closing of the initial public offering;

   . legal actions currently pending against Sunoco, Inc. or its affiliates; and

   . events and conditions associated with any assets retained by Sunoco, Inc.
     or its affiliates.

Pipelines and Terminals Storage and Throughput Agreement

   Concurrently with the closing of the master partnership's initial public
offering, we entered into a pipelines and terminals storage and throughput
agreement with Sunoco R&M as described under "Business--Our Relationship with
Sunoco, Inc."

   Sunoco R&M's obligations under this agreement do not terminate if Sunoco,
Inc. and its affiliates no longer own the master partnership's general partner.
This agreement may be assigned by Sunoco R&M only with the consent of the
master partnership's general partner's conflicts committee.

Other Agreements with Sunoco R&M and Sunoco, Inc.

   Under a 20-year lease agreement, Sunoco R&M will pay us $5.1 million in the
first year to lease 58 miles of interrefinery pipelines between Sunoco R&M's
Philadelphia and Marcus Hook refineries, escalating at 1.67% per year, for the
next 19 years.

   Sunoco R&M agreed to purchase from us at market-based rates particular
grades of crude oil that our crude oil acquisition and marketing business
purchases for delivery to pipelines in: Longview, Trent, Tye, and Colorado
City, Texas; Haynesville, Louisiana; Marysville and Lewiston, Michigan; and
Tulsa, Oklahoma. At Marysville and Lewiston, Michigan, we exchange Michigan
sweet and Michigan sour crude oil we own for domestic sweet crude oil supplied
by Sunoco R&M at market-based rates. The initial term of these agreements is
two months. These agreements will automatically renew on a monthly basis unless
terminated by either party on 30 days' written notice. Sunoco R&M has indicated
that it has no current intention to terminate these agreements.

                                      135


<PAGE>

   We entered into a license agreement with Sunoco R&M and certain of its
affiliates, including the master partnership's general partner, pursuant to
which the master partnership's general partner and its affiliates were granted
a license to our intellectual property so they can manage our operations and
create intellectual property using our intellectual property. The master
partnership's general partner will also assign to us the new intellectual
property it creates in operating our business. The master partnership's general
partner also licensed to us certain of its own intellectual property for use in
the conduct of our business and we license to the master partnership's general
partner certain of our intellectual property for use in the conduct of its
business. The license agreement also granted to us a license to use the
trademarks, trade names, and service marks of Sunoco, Inc. in the conduct of
our business.

   The master partnership entered into a treasury services agreement with
Sunoco, Inc. pursuant to which, among other things, we are participating in
Sunoco, Inc.'s centralized cash management program. Under this program, all of
our cash receipts and cash disbursements are processed, together with those of
Sunoco, Inc. and its other subsidiaries, through Sunoco, Inc.'s cash accounts
with a corresponding credit or charge to an intercompany account. The
intercompany balances will be settled periodically, but no less frequently than
at the end of each month. Amounts due from Sunoco, Inc. and its subsidiaries
will earn interest at a rate equal to the average rate of our third-party money
market investments, while amounts due to Sunoco, Inc. and its subsidiaries bear
interest at a rate equal to the interest rate provided in our revolving credit
facility.

            CERTAIN UNITED STATES FEDERAL INCOME TAX CONSIDERATIONS

   The following discussion is a summary of certain federal income tax
considerations relevant to the exchange of outstanding notes for new notes, but
does not purport to be a complete analysis of all potential tax effects. The
discussion is based upon the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the
"Code"), Treasury Regulations, Internal Revenue Service rulings and
pronouncements and judicial decisions now in effect, all of which may be
subject to change at any time by legislative, judicial or administrative
action. These changes may be applied retroactively in a manner that could
adversely affect a holder of new notes. The description does not consider the
effect of any applicable foreign, state, local or other tax laws or estate or
gift tax considerations.

   We believe that the exchange of outstanding notes for new notes should not
be an exchange or otherwise a taxable event to a holder for United States
federal income tax purposes. Accordingly, a holder should have the same
adjusted issue price, adjusted basis and holding period in the new notes as it
had in the outstanding notes immediately before the exchange.

                                      137


<PAGE>

                             PLAN OF DISTRIBUTION

   Based on interpretations by the staff of the SEC in no action letters issued
to third parties, we believe that you may transfer new notes issued under the
exchange offer in exchange for the outstanding notes if:

  .  you acquire the new notes in the ordinary course of your business; and

  .  you are not engaged in, and do not intend to engage in, and have no
     arrangement or understanding with any person to participate in, a
     distribution of such new notes.

   You may not participate in the exchange offer if you are:

  .  our "affiliate" within the meaning of Rule 405 under the Securities Act of
     1933; or

  .  a broker-dealer that acquired outstanding notes directly from us.

   Each broker-dealer that receives new notes for its own account pursuant to
the exchange offer must acknowledge that it will deliver a prospectus in
connection with any resale of such new notes. To date, the staff of the SEC has
taken the position that broker-dealers may fulfill their prospectus delivery
requirements with respect to transactions involving an exchange of securities
such as this exchange offer, other than a resale of an unsold allotment from
the original sale of the outstanding notes, with the prospectus contained in
this registration statement. This prospectus, as it may be amended or
supplemented from time to time, may be used by a broker-dealer in connection
with resales of new notes received in exchange for outstanding notes where such
outstanding notes were acquired as a result of market-making activities or
other trading activities. We have agreed that, for a period of up to 180 days
after the consummation of this exchange offer, we will make this prospectus, as
amended or supplemented, available to any broker-dealer for use in connection
with any such resale. In addition, until such date, all dealers effecting
transactions in new notes may be required to deliver a prospectus.

   If you wish to exchange new notes for your outstanding notes in the exchange
offer, you will be required to make representations to us as described in
"Exchange Offer--Purpose and Effect of the Exchange Offer" and "--Procedures
for Tendering--Your Representations to Us" in this prospectus and in the letter
of transmittal. In addition, if you are a broker-dealer who receives new notes
for your own account in exchange for outstanding notes that were acquired by
you as a result of market-making activities or other trading activities, you
will be required to acknowledge that you will deliver a prospectus in
connection with any resale by you of such new notes.

   We will not receive any proceeds from any sale of new notes by
broker-dealers. New notes received by broker-dealers for their own account
pursuant to the exchange offer may be sold from time to time in one or more
transactions in the over-the-counter market:

  .  in negotiated transactions;

  .  through the writing of options on the new notes or a combination of such
     methods of resale;

  .  at market prices prevailing at the time of resale; and

  .  at prices related to such prevailing market prices or negotiated prices.

   Any such resale may be made directly to purchasers or to or through brokers
or dealers who may receive compensation in the form of commissions or
concessions from any such broker-dealer or the purchasers of any such new
notes. Any broker-dealer that resells new notes that were received by it for
its own account pursuant to the exchange offer and any broker or dealer that
participates in a distribution of such new notes may be deemed to be an
"underwriter" within the meaning of the Securities Act of 1933. The letter of
transmittal states that by acknowledging that it will deliver and by delivering
a prospectus, a broker-dealer will not be deemed to admit that it is an
"underwriter" within the meaning of the Securities Act of 1933.

                                      138


<PAGE>

   For a period of 180 days after the consummation of this exchange offer, we
will promptly send additional copies of this prospectus and any amendment or
supplement to this prospectus to any broker-dealer that requests such documents
in the letter of transmittal. We have agreed to pay all expenses incident to
the exchange offer (including the expenses of one counsel for the holders of
the outstanding notes) other than commissions or concessions of any
broker-dealers and will indemnify the holders of the outstanding notes
(including any broker-dealers) against certain liabilities, including
liabilities under the Securities Act of 1933.

                          FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

   Certain matters discussed in this prospectus, excluding historical
information, include forward-looking statements that discuss our expected
future results based on current and pending business operations.
Forward-looking statements can be identified by words such as "anticipates",
"believes", "expects", "planned", "scheduled" or similar expressions. Although
we believe these forward-looking statements are based on reasonable
assumptions, statements made regarding future results are subject to numerous
assumptions, uncertainties and risks that may cause future results to be
materially different from the results stated or implied in this document. The
following are among the important factors that could cause actual results to
differ materially from any results projected, forecasted, estimated or budgeted:

  .  Changes in demand for crude oil and refined petroleum products that we
     store and distribute;

  .  Changes in demand for storage in our petroleum product terminals;

  .  The loss of Sunoco, Inc. (R&M) as a customer or a significant reduction in
     its current level of throughput and storage with us;

  .  An increase in the competition encountered by our petroleum products
     terminals, pipelines and crude oil acquisition and marketing operations;

  .  Changes in the throughput on petroleum product pipelines owned and
     operated by third parties and connected to our petroleum product pipelines
     and terminals;

  .  Changes in the general economic conditions in the United States;

  .  Changes in laws and regulations to which we are subject, including
     federal, state, and local tax laws, safety, environmental and employment
     laws;

  .  Changes to existing or future state or federal government regulations
     banning or restricting the use of MTBE in gasoline;

  .  Improvements in energy efficiency and technology resulting in reduced
     demand;

  .  Our ability to manage rapid growth;

  .  Our ability to control costs;

  .  The effect of changes in accounting principles;

  .  Global and domestic economic repercussions from terrorist activities and
     the government's response thereto;

  .  The occurrence of operational hazards or unforeseen interruptions for
     which we may not be adequately insured;

  .  Changes in the reliability and efficiency of our operating facilities or
     those of Sunoco, Inc. (R&M) or third parties;

  .  Changes in the expected level of environmental remediation spending;

  .  Changes in insurance markets resulting in increased costs and reductions
     in the level and types of coverage available; and

  .  Changes in the status of litigation to which we are a party.

   These factors are not necessarily all of the important factors that could
cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed in any of our
forward-looking statements. Other unknown or unpredictable factors could also
have material adverse effects on future results. We undertake no obligation to
update publicly any forward-looking statement whether as a result of new
information or future events.

                   UNAUDITED PRO FORMA FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

Introduction

   Effective with the closing of the initial public offering, the assets and
liabilities of Sunoco Logistics (Predecessor) were transferred to Sunoco
Logistics Partners L.P. (the "Partnership"), a newly formed Delaware limited
partnership. The accompanying unaudited pro forma financial statements give
effect to this transfer, the initial public offering, the notes offering and
related transactions. The pro forma information assumes that these transactions
occurred on December 31, 2001 for the pro forma balance sheet and January 1,
2001 for the pro forma statement of income. The transfer will be recorded at
historical cost as it is considered to be a reorganization of entities under
common control. Please read Note 1: Basis of Presentation, the Offerings and
Other Transactions in the accompanying notes to pro forma financial statements
for further explanation of the initial public offering, the notes offering, the
transfer and the related transactions.

   Sunoco Logistics Partners L.P.'s unaudited pro forma financial statements
and accompanying notes should be read together with the historical financial
statements and related notes of Sunoco Logistics Partners L.P. included
elsewhere in this prospectus. The pro forma balance sheet and the pro forma
statement of income were derived by adjusting the historical financial
statements of Sunoco Logistics Partners L.P. which consist of the historical
cost-basis accounts of Sunoco Logistics (Predecessor). The adjustments are
based on currently available information and certain estimates and assumptions;
therefore, the actual amounts may differ from the pro forma adjustments.
However, management believes that the assumptions provide a reasonable basis
for presenting the significant effects of the initial public offering, the
notes offering and the other transactions effected at the closing and that the
pro forma adjustments give appropriate effect to the assumptions made and are
properly applied in the pro forma financial statements.

   The unaudited pro forma financial statements do not purport to present the
financial position or results of operations of Sunoco Logistics Partners L.P.
had the initial public offering, the notes offering and the related
transactions effected at the closing actually been completed as of the dates
indicated. Moreover, they do not project Sunoco Logistics Partners L.P.'s
financial position or results of operations for any future date or period.

              NOTES TO PRO FORMA FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (Unaudited)

Note 1:  Basis of Presentation, the Offerings and Other Transactions

   The historical financial information is derived from the historical
financial statements of Sunoco Logistics Partners L.P. which consist of the
historical cost-basis accounts of Sunoco Logistics (Predecessor) (the
"Predecessor"). The Predecessor consists of a substantial portion of the wholly
owned logistics operations of Sunoco, Inc. and subsidiaries (collectively,
"Sunoco"). The combined financial statements also include the Predecessor's
9.4% investment in Explorer Pipeline Company, a corporate joint venture which
is accounted for by the equity method. The equity income from this investment
is included in other income in the pro forma statement of income. Most of the
assets of Sunoco Logistics Partners L.P. support Sunoco, Inc.'s refining and
marketing operations which are conducted primarily by Sunoco, Inc. (R&M)
("Sunoco R&M"). Sunoco Logistics Partners L.P. operates in three principal
business segments: Eastern Pipeline System, Terminal Facilities and Western
Pipeline System.

   The pro forma financial statements reflect the following transactions:

   . The contribution of certain assets and liabilities of Sunoco Logistics
     (Predecessor) to Sunoco Logistics Partners L.P. in exchange for the
     issuance by Sunoco Logistics Partners L.P. to Sunoco Partners LLC of
     5,633,639 common units, 11,383,639 subordinated units, the 2% general
     partner interest in Sunoco Logistics Partners L.P. and the incentive
     distribution rights;

   . The issuance by Sunoco Logistics Partners L.P. of 5,750,000 common units
     to the public (including 750,000 common units issued pursuant to the
     underwriters' over-allotment option) at an initial public offering price
     of $20.25 per common unit resulting in aggregate gross proceeds to Sunoco
     Logistics Partners L.P. of $116.4 million;

   . The issuance by Sunoco Logistics Partners Operations L.P., the operating
     partnership of Sunoco Logistics Partners L.P., of $250 million of ten-year
     senior notes (the "Senior Notes") at 99.325% of par and the establishment
     of a three-year $150 million revolving credit facility;

   . The payment of estimated underwriting commissions and offering expenses of
     $14.1 million and debt financing fees of $3 million;

   . The distribution to Sunoco of the net proceeds from the Senior Notes; and

   . The execution of a pipelines and terminals storage and throughput
     agreement with Sunoco R&M and an omnibus agreement with Sunoco R&M and
     Sunoco, Inc. as described in Note 5 below.

   In connection with the transfer of the operations of Sunoco Logistics
(Predecessor) to the Partnership, the employees who work in the pipeline,
terminalling, storage and crude oil gathering operations, including senior
executives, have become employees of Sunoco Partners LLC or its affiliates,
wholly owned subsidiaries of Sunoco, Inc. The Partnership has no employees.

   Upon completion of the initial public offering, Sunoco Logistics Partners
L.P. anticipates incurring incremental general and administrative costs (e.g.,
cost of tax return preparation, annual and quarterly reports to unitholders,
investor relations and registrar and transfer agent fees) at an annual rate of
approximately $4.0 million, including incremental insurance costs. The pro
forma financial statements do not reflect any adjustment for these estimated
incremental costs or adjustments in the general and administrative costs
allocated to Sunoco Logistics Partners L.P. by Sunoco, Inc. as described in
Note 5 below.

Note 2:  Pro Forma Adjustments and Assumptions

   (A) Reflects elimination of assets and liabilities that were not contributed
by Sunoco, Inc. to Sunoco Logistics Partners L.P. and the removal of current
and deferred income tax liabilities which were retained by

                                      F-5


<PAGE>

Sunoco, Inc. Income taxes are the responsibility of the unitholders and not
Sunoco Logistics Partners L.P. The amounts eliminated from accrued liabilities
and other deferred credits and liabilities consist of $16.3 million of
environmental liabilities and $2.7 million of other liabilities for which the
Partnership has been indemnified by Sunoco, Inc. (see Note 5 below).

   (B) Reflects the estimated proceeds of $116.4 million from the issuance and
sale of 5,750,000 common units to the public at an initial public offering
price of $20.25 per unit.

   (C) Represents the issuance of the Senior Notes.

   (D) Reflects the payment of underwriting commissions and offering expenses
of $14.1 million and debt financing fees of $3.0 million. The underwriting
commissions and offering expenses have been allocated to the common units
issued in the public offering and the debt financing fees have been capitalized
and will be amortized over the life of the Senior Notes.

   (E) Represents the distribution of $245.3 million to Sunoco, Inc., the
estimated net proceeds from the issuance of the Senior Notes.

   (F) Reflects the use of net proceeds of $102.3 million from the issuance and
sale of the common units to establish the anticipated ongoing level of working
capital for the Partnership. The adjustment reflects the replenishment of
accounts receivable and inventory which were not contributed to the Partnership
by Sunoco, Inc. as well as the establishment of accounts receivable from Sunoco
R&M to reflect the payment terms included in the crude oil supply contracts.
Previously, the amounts related to the crude oil supply contracts were settled
immediately through the net parent investment account.

   (G) Represents the allocation of $224.4 million of net partnership equity
contributed by the general partner of which $4.5 million, representing 2% of
the contributed amount, is allocated to the general partner interest, $72.8
million is allocated to the 5,633,639 common units, and $147.1 million is
allocated to the 11,383,639 subordinated units. The amounts allocated to the
common and subordinated units were allocated pro rata based upon the number of
such units issued to Sunoco Partners LLC.

   (H) Reflects removal of net interest cost paid to affiliates as the debt due
affiliate was not contributed by Sunoco, Inc. to the Partnership (see Note A
above) and the elimination of income tax expense. Income taxes are the
responsibility of the unitholders and not the Partnership.

   (I)  Reflects an adjustment to terminalling and storage service revenues
generated by the 32 inland refined product terminals, the Marcus Hook Tank
Farm, the Inkster LPG terminal, and the Fort Mifflin Terminal Complex, and
lease revenue attributable to the interrefinery pipeline. Pursuant to a
pipelines and terminals storage and throughput agreement with Sunoco R&M,
Sunoco Logistics Partners L.P. is charging Sunoco R&M fees for these services
generally comparable to those charged in arm's-length, third-party
transactions. Historically, most of the terminalling and throughput services
provided by the Predecessor for Sunoco R&M's refining and marketing operations
were at fees that enabled it to recover its costs but not to generate operating
income. The pro forma sales and other operating revenue for terminalling and
throughput services was determined using the rates provided in the pipelines
and terminals storage and throughput agreement and the actual throughput
amounts in the respective periods. The 2002 rates in the contract were reduced
to the appropriate rates for 2001 using the escalation factors provided in the
contract. Please read "Business--Our Relationship with Sunoco, Inc.--Pipelines
and Terminals Storage and Throughput Agreement with Sunoco R&M.''

   (J) Reflects interest expense as if the Senior Notes were issued on January
1, 2001 (see Note C above). The interest adjustments were computed using the
interest rate for the Senior Notes of 7.25%. Also includes amortization of the
issuance discount.

   (K) Reflects expense attributable to an annual facility fee on the $150
million revolving credit facility.

   (L) Reflects amortization of debt financing fees over the life of the Senior
Notes (see Note C above).

Note 3:  Pro Forma Net Income Per Unit

   Pro forma net income per unit is determined by dividing the pro forma net
income that would have been allocated to the common and subordinated
unitholders, which is 98% of pro forma net income, by the number of common and
subordinated units outstanding at the closing of the offering. For purposes of
the basic net income per unit calculation, the number of common and
subordinated units assumed to be outstanding was 22,767,278, while the diluted
net income per unit calculation assumed 22,892,278 units were outstanding. The
diluted amount includes 125,000 units expected to be granted under the Sunoco
Partners LLC Long-Term Incentive Plan. All units were assumed to have been
outstanding since January 1, 2001. Pursuant to the partnership agreement, to
the extent that the quarterly distribution exceeds certain targets, the general
partner is entitled to certain incentive distributions which will result in
less net income proportionately being allocated to the holders of the common
units and subordinated units. The pro forma net income per unit calculations
assume that no incentive distributions were made to the general partner because
no such distribution would have been paid based upon the pro forma available
cash from operating surplus for the respective periods.

Note 4:  Description of Equity Interest in Sunoco Logistics Partners L.P.

   The common units and the subordinated units represent limited partner
interests in Sunoco Logistics Partners L.P. The holders of units are entitled
to participate in partnership distributions and exercise the rights and
privileges available to limited partners under the Sunoco Logistics Partners
L.P. partnership agreement.

   The common units have the right to receive a minimum quarterly distribution
of available cash from operating surplus of $0.45 per unit, or $1.80 on an
annualized basis, plus any arrearages on the common units, before any
distribution is made to the holders of subordinated units. In addition, if at
any time Sunoco, Inc. and its affiliates own more than 80% of the outstanding
common units, the general partner has the right to purchase all of the
remaining common units at a price not less than the then-current market price
of the common units.

   The subordinated units generally receive quarterly cash distributions only
when the common units have received a minimum quarterly distribution of $0.45
per unit for each quarter since the commencement of operations. When the
subordination period ends, all subordinated units will convert into common
units on a one-for-one basis and the common units will no longer be entitled to
arrearages. The subordination period will end

                                      F-7


<PAGE>

when Sunoco Logistics Partners L.P. meets financial tests specified in the
partnership agreement but generally cannot end before December 31, 2006.
However, if Sunoco Logistics Partners L.P. meets the financial tests for any
quarter ending on or after December 31, 2004, 25% of the subordinated units
will convert into common units. If these tests are met for any quarter ending
on or after December 31, 2005, an additional 25% of the subordinated units will
convert into common units. The early conversion of the second 25% of the
subordinated units may not occur until at least one year after the early
conversion of the first 25% of the subordinated units.

   The general partner interest is entitled to at least 2% of all distributions
made by Sunoco Logistics Partners L.P. In addition, the general partner holds
incentive distribution rights, which allow the general partner to receive a
higher percentage of quarterly distributions of available cash after the
minimum quarterly distributions have been achieved, and as additional target
levels are met. The higher percentages range from 15% up to 50%. The pro forma
financial statements assume that no incentive distributions were made to the
general partner. In subsequent periods, Sunoco Logistics Partners L.P. will
apply the hypothetical liquidation at book value method in allocating income to
the various partnership interests.

Note 5:  Agreements with Sunoco R&M and Sunoco, Inc.

   Concurrent with the closing of the initial public offering, Sunoco, Inc. and
its affiliates and Sunoco Logistics Partners L.P. entered into the following
agreements:

   Pipelines and Terminals Storage and Throughput Agreement with Sunoco
R&M.  Under this agreement, Sunoco R&M has agreed to pay Sunoco Logistics
Partners L.P. a minimum level of revenues for transporting and terminalling
refined products. Sunoco R&M has also agreed to minimum throughputs of refined
products and crude oil in the Partnership's Inkster Terminal, Fort Mifflin
Terminal Complex, Marcus Hook Tank Farm and certain crude oil pipelines. Please
read "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results
of Operations--Overview--Agreements with Sunoco R&M and Sunoco, Inc.''

   Omnibus Agreement.  Historically, Sunoco, Inc. has allocated a portion of
its general and administrative expenses to its pipeline, terminalling and
storage operations to cover costs of centralized corporate functions such as
legal, accounting, treasury, engineering, information technology and insurance.
The allocation was $9.0 million, $10.1 million and $10.8 million for the years
ended December 31, 1999, 2000 and 2001, respectively.

   Under the omnibus agreement, Sunoco, Inc. will continue to provide these
services for three years for an annual administrative fee initially in the
amount of $8.0 million, which may be increased in the second and third years
following the initial public offering by the lesser of 2.5% or the consumer
price index for the applicable year. These costs may also increase if the
Partnership makes an acquisition or constructs additional assets that require
an increase in the level of general and administrative services received by the
Partnership from the general partner or Sunoco, Inc. The $8.0 million fee
includes expenses incurred by Sunoco, Inc. and its affiliates to perform
centralized corporate functions, such as legal, accounting, treasury,
engineering, information technology, insurance and other corporate services,
including the administration of employee benefit plans. This fee does not
include salaries of pipeline and terminal personnel or other employees of the
general partner, including senior executives, or the cost of their employee
benefits, such as 401(k), pension, and health insurance benefits. The
Partnership is also reimbursing Sunoco, Inc. and its affiliates for these costs
and other direct expenses incurred on the Partnership's behalf. The Partnership
has no employees. In addition, the Partnership is currently incurring
additional general and administrative costs, including costs for tax return
preparation, annual and quarterly reports to unitholders, investor relations,
registrar and transfer agent fees, and other costs related to operating as a
separate publicly held entity. The Partnership estimates that these incremental
costs will be approximately $4.0 million per year, including incremental
insurance costs.

   Under the omnibus agreement, Sunoco R&M is reimbursing Sunoco Logistics
Partners L.P. for operating expenses and capital expenditures in excess of $8.0
million per year (up to an aggregate maximum of $15.0 million over a five-year
period) incurred to comply with the U.S. Department of Transportation's pipeline

                                      F-8


<PAGE>

integrity management rule. Based on historical integrity tests conducted since
1989, Sunoco Logistics Partners L.P. estimates that compliance with this rule
will cost the Partnership approximately $8.0 million per year for five years,
or a total of $40.0 million, for all pipelines in its Eastern and Western
Pipeline Systems that are subject to this rule. In addition, Sunoco R&M is, at
its expense, completing for Sunoco Logistics Partners L.P.'s Darby Creek Tank
Farm certain tank maintenance and inspection projects now in progress or
expected to be completed within one year from the closing of the initial public
offering. Sunoco R&M estimates total costs to complete these projects will be
approximately $4.0 million. Sunoco R&M is also reimbursing Sunoco Logistics
Partners L.P. for up to $10.0 million of expenditures required at the Darby
Creek and Marcus Hook Tank Farms to maintain compliance with existing industry
standards and regulatory requirements. The Partnership is reflecting outlays
for these programs as operating expenses or capital expenditures, as
appropriate. Capital expenditures are being depreciated over their useful
lives. Reimbursements by Sunoco R&M are being reflected as capital
contributions.

   Sunoco, Inc. has agreed to indemnify Sunoco Logistics Partners L.P. for 30
years from environmental and toxic tort liabilities related to the assets
contributed to the Partnership that arise from the operation of such assets
prior to the closing of the initial public offering. Sunoco, Inc. is obligated
to indemnify the Partnership for 100% of all losses asserted within the first
21 years of closing. Sunoco, Inc.'s share of liability for claims asserted
thereafter will decrease by 10% a year. For example, for a claim asserted
during the twenty-third year after closing, Sunoco, Inc. would be required to
indemnify the Partnership for 80% of its loss. There is no monetary cap on the
amount of indemnity coverage provided by Sunoco, Inc. Sunoco Logistics Partners
L.P. has agreed to indemnify Sunoco, Inc. and its affiliates for events and
conditions associated with the operation of the Partnership's assets that occur
on or after the closing of this offering and for environmental and toxic tort
liabilities to the extent Sunoco, Inc. is not required to indemnify the
Partnership.

   Sunoco, Inc. also has indemnified Sunoco Logistics Partners L.P. for
liabilities, other than environmental and toxic tort liabilities related to the
assets contributed to the Partnership, that arise out of Sunoco, Inc. and its
affiliates' ownership and operation of the assets prior to the closing of the
initial public offering and that are asserted within 10 years after closing. In
addition, Sunoco, Inc. has indemnified the Partnership from liabilities
relating to certain defects in title to the assets contributed to the
Partnership and associated with failure to obtain certain consents and permits
necessary to conduct its business that arise within 10 years after closing as
well as from liabilities relating to legal actions currently pending against
Sunoco, Inc. or its affiliates and events and conditions associated with any
assets retained by Sunoco, Inc. or its affiliates.

   In addition, Sunoco, Inc. and its affiliates have agreed, subject to certain
exceptions, not to engage in, whether by acquisition or otherwise, the business
of purchasing crude oil at the wellhead, or operating crude oil pipelines or
terminals, refined products pipelines or terminals, or LPG terminals in the
continental United States.

   Other Agreements with Sunoco R&M and Sunoco, Inc.  Under various other
agreements, Sunoco R&M is, among other things, purchasing from the Partnership
at market-based rates particular grades of crude oil that the Partnership's
crude oil acquisition and marketing business purchases for delivery to
pipelines in: Longview, Trent, Tye, and Colorado City, Texas; Haynesville,
Louisiana; Marysville and Lewiston, Michigan; and Tulsa, Oklahoma. At
Marysville and Lewiston, Michigan, the Partnership exchanges Michigan sweet and
Michigan sour crude oil it owns for domestic sweet crude oil supplied by Sunoco
R&M at market-based rates. The initial term of these agreements is two months.
These agreements will automatically renew on a monthly basis unless terminated
by either party on 30 days' written notice. Sunoco R&M has also agreed to lease
from the Partnership the 58 miles of interrefinery pipelines between Sunoco
R&M's Philadelphia and Marcus Hook refineries for a term of 20 years. The
Partnership has entered into a license agreement with Sunoco, Inc. and certain
of its affiliates, including Sunoco Partners LLC, pursuant to which the
Partnership has granted to Sunoco Partners LLC a license to the Partnership's
intellectual property so that Sunoco Partners LLC can manage the Partnership's
operations and create intellectual property using the Partnership's
intellectual property. Sunoco Partners LLC will assign to the Partnership the
new intellectual property it creates in operating the Partnership's business.
Sunoco Partners LLC has also licensed to the Partnership certain of its own
intellectual property for use in the conduct of the Partnership's business and
the Partnership has licensed to Sunoco Partners LLC certain of the

                                      F-9


<PAGE>

Partnership's intellectual property for use in the conduct of its business. The
license agreement also grants to the Partnership a license to use the
trademarks, trade names, and service marks of Sunoco, Inc. in the conduct of
the Partnership's business. The Partnership has also entered into a treasury
services agreement with Sunoco, Inc. pursuant to which it, among other things,
participates in Sunoco, Inc.'s centralized cash management program. Under this
program, all of the Partnership's cash receipts and cash disbursements are
processed, together with those of Sunoco, Inc. and its other subsidiaries,
through Sunoco, Inc.'s cash accounts with a corresponding credit or charge to
an intercompany account. The intercompany balances are settled periodically,
but no less frequently than at the end of each month. Amounts due from Sunoco,
Inc. and its subsidiaries earn interest at a rate equal to the average rate of
the Partnership's third-party money market investments, while amounts due to
Sunoco, Inc. and its subsidiaries bear interest at a rate equal to the interest
rate provided in the Partnership's revolving credit facility.

Note 6:  Guarantee of Senior Notes

   The Senior Notes issued by Sunoco Logistics Partners Operations L.P. have
been guaranteed by its parent, Sunoco Logistics Partners L.P., and by its
operating subsidiaries. The guarantees are full and unconditional, and on a
joint and several basis.

   Sunoco Logistics Partners L.P. has no operations and its only assets are its
investments in its wholly owned partnerships and subsidiaries. Sunoco Logistics
Partners Operations L.P. also has no operations and its assets are limited to
its investments in its wholly owned operating subsidiaries. Except for amounts
associated with the Senior Notes, the assets and liabilities in the pro forma
balance sheet at December 31, 2001 and the revenues and expenses in the pro
forma statement of income for the year then ended are attributable to the
operating subsidiaries.

                        REPORT OF INDEPENDENT AUDITORS

To the Board of Directors of
Sunoco Partners LLC:

   We have audited the accompanying combined balance sheets of Sunoco Logistics
Partners L.P. (the "Partnership") as of December 31, 2001 and 2000 and the
related combined statements of income and net parent investment and of cash
flows for each of the three years in the period ended December 31, 2001. These
financial statements, which reflect the cost-basis accounts of Sunoco Logistics
(Predecessor), the predecessor to the Partnership, are the responsibility of
the Partnership's management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on
these financial statements based on our audits.

   We conducted our audits in accordance with auditing standards generally
accepted in the United States. Those standards require that we plan and perform
the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements
are free of material misstatement. An audit includes examining, on a test
basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial
statements. An audit also includes assessing the accounting principles used and
significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall
financial statement presentation. We believe that our audits provide a
reasonable basis for our opinion.

   In our opinion, the financial statements referred to above present fairly,
in all material respects, the combined financial position of Sunoco Logistics
Partners L.P. at December 31, 2001 and 2000 and the combined results of its
operations and its cash flows for each of the three years in the period ended
December 31, 2001, in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted
in the United States.

                        SUNOCO LOGISTICS PARTNERS L.P.

               NOTES TO HISTORICAL COMBINED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

1.  Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

  Basis of Presentation and Principles of Combination

   Sunoco Logistics Partners L.P. (the "Partnership") is a Delaware limited
partnership formed by Sunoco, Inc. in October 2001 to acquire, own and operate
a substantial portion of Sunoco, Inc.'s logistics business, consisting of
refined product pipelines, terminalling and storage assets, crude oil
pipelines, and crude oil acquisition and marketing assets located in the
Northeast and Midwest United States (collectively, "Sunoco Logistics
(Predecessor)" or the "Predecessor"). In February 2002, Sunoco, Inc., through
its subsidiary Sunoco Partners LLC, the general partner of the Partnership,
contributed the Predecessor to the Partnership in exchange for: (i) its 2%
general partner interest in the Partnership; (ii) incentive distribution rights
(as defined in the Partnership Agreement); (iii) 5,633,639 common units; (iv)
11,383,639 subordinated units; and (v) a special interest representing the
right to receive from the Partnership on the closing of the Offering the net
proceeds from the issuance of $250 million of ten-year senior notes by Sunoco
Logistics Partners Operations L.P. (the "Operating Partnership"). The net
proceeds are estimated to be $245.3 million. The Partnership concurrently
issued 5.75 million common units (including 750,000 units issued pursuant to
the underwriters' over-allotment option), representing a 24.8% limited
partnership interest in the Partnership, in an initial public offering (the
"Offering") at a price of $20.25 per unit. Proceeds from the Offering, which
totalled approximately $102 million net of underwriting discounts and offering
expenses, were used by the Partnership to establish working capital that was
not contributed to the Partnership by Sunoco, Inc.

   The accompanying combined financial statements of Sunoco Logistics Partners
L.P. consist of the historical cost-basis accounts of the Predecessor, after
elimination of all balances and transactions within the combined group of
operations. The combined financial statements also include the Predecessor's
9.4% investment in Explorer Pipeline Company, a corporate joint venture which
is accounted for by the equity method. The equity income from this investment
is included in other income in the combined statements of income and net parent
investment. The financial statements include charges from Sunoco, Inc. and its
subsidiaries (collectively, "Sunoco") for direct costs and allocations of
indirect corporate overhead. Management of the Partnership believes that the
allocation methods are reasonable, and that the allocations are representative
of the costs that would have been incurred on a stand-alone basis.

  Description of Business

   Most of the assets of the Partnership support Sunoco, Inc.'s refining and
marketing operations which are conducted primarily by Sunoco, Inc. (R&M)
("Sunoco R&M"). The Partnership operates in three principal business segments:
Eastern Pipeline System, Terminal Facilities and Western Pipeline System.

   The Eastern Pipeline System transports refined products in the Northeast and
Midwest largely for Sunoco R&M's Philadelphia, PA, Marcus Hook, PA and Toledo,
OH refineries. The Eastern Pipeline System also transports crude oil on a
pipeline in Ohio and Michigan that supplies both Sunoco R&M's Toledo refinery
and third-party refineries. This segment also includes an interrefinery
pipeline between Sunoco R&M's Marcus Hook and Philadelphia refineries and the
equity interest in Explorer Pipeline Company, which transports refined products
from the Gulf Coast to numerous terminals throughout the Midwest.

   The Terminal Facilities segment includes a network of 32 refined product
terminals in the Northeast and Midwest that distribute products primarily to
Sunoco R&M's retail outlets, an 11.2 million-barrel marine crude oil terminal
on the Texas Gulf Coast and a one million barrel liquefied petroleum gas
("LPG") storage facility near Detroit, MI. This segment also owns and operates
one inland and two marine crude oil terminals and the related storage
facilities and pipelines that supply all of the crude oil processed by Sunoco
R&M's Philadelphia

                                     F-15


<PAGE>

refinery. Finally, this segment includes a two million barrel refined product
storage terminal in Marcus Hook, PA that is used by Sunoco R&M's Marcus Hook
refinery to source barrels to the Predecessor's pipelines.

   The Western Pipeline System acquires, transports and markets crude oil
principally in Oklahoma and Texas for Sunoco R&M's Tulsa, OK and Toledo, OH
refineries and also for other customers.

  Use of Estimates

   The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting
principles generally accepted in the United States requires management to make
estimates and assumptions that affect the amounts reported in the financial
statements and accompanying notes. Actual amounts could differ from these
estimates.

  Revenue Recognition

   Crude oil gathering and marketing revenues are recognized when title to the
crude oil is transferred to the customer. Revenues are not recognized for crude
oil exchange transactions which are entered into primarily to acquire crude oil
of a desired quality or to reduce transportation costs by taking delivery
closer to the Partnership's end markets. Any net differential for exchange
transactions is recorded as an adjustment of inventory costs in the purchases
component of cost of products sold and operating expenses in the combined
statements of income and net parent investment. Such amounts are not deemed to
be material. Terminalling and storage revenues are recognized at the time the
services are provided. Pipeline revenues are recognized upon delivery of the
barrels to the location designated by the shipper.

   Affiliated revenues consist of sales of crude oil as well as the provision
of crude oil and refined product pipeline transportation, terminalling and
storage services to Sunoco R&M. Affiliated revenues reflect transfer prices
consistently used to prepare segment information for Sunoco, Inc.'s historical
consolidated financial statements. Sales of crude oil to affiliates are
computed using the formula-based pricing mechanism of a supply agreement with
Sunoco R&M. Management of the Partnership believes these terms to be comparable
to those that could be negotiated with an unrelated third party. Pipeline
revenues from affiliates are generally determined using posted third-party
tariffs. Affiliated revenues from terminalling and storage are generally equal
to all of the costs incurred for these activities, including operating,
maintenance and environmental remediation expenditures.

  Inventories

   Inventories are valued at the lower of cost or market. Crude oil reflects an
allocation to the Predecessor by Sunoco R&M of the Predecessor's share of
Sunoco R&M's crude oil inventory, the cost of which has been determined using
the last-in, first-out method ("LIFO"). Under this allocation methodology, the
cost of products sold consists of the actual crude oil acquisition costs of the
Predecessor. Such costs are adjusted to reflect increases or decreases in crude
oil inventory quantities, which are valued based on the changes in Sunoco,
Inc.'s LIFO inventory layers. Effective with the transfer of the Predecessor's
operations to the Partnership, the Partnership is maintaining a separate LIFO
pool and all LIFO computations are being made on a stand-alone basis. The cost
of materials, supplies and other inventories is determined using principally
the average cost method.

  Properties, Plants and Equipment

   Properties, plants and equipment are stated at cost. Additions to
properties, plants and equipment, including replacements and improvements, are
recorded at cost. Repair and maintenance expenditures are charged to

                                     F-16


<PAGE>

expense as incurred. Depreciation is provided principally using the
straight-line method based on the estimated useful lives of the related assets.
For certain interstate pipelines, the depreciation rate is applied to the net
asset value based on FERC requirements. When FERC-regulated property, plant and
equipment is retired or otherwise disposed of, the cost less net proceeds is
charged to accumulated depreciation and amortization, except that gains and
losses for those groups are reflected in other income in the combined
statements of income and net parent investment for unusual disposals. Gains and
losses on the disposal of non-FERC properties, plants and equipment are
reflected in other income in the combined statements of income and net parent
investment.

  Impairment of Long-Lived Assets

   Long-lived assets other than those held for sale are reviewed for impairment
whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount
of the assets may not be recoverable. An asset is considered to be impaired
when the undiscounted estimated net cash flows expected to be generated by the
asset are less than its carrying amount. The impairment recognized is the
amount by which the carrying amount exceeds the fair market value of the
impaired asset. Long-lived assets held for sale are carried at the lower of
their carrying amount or fair market value less cost to sell the assets.
Effective January 1, 2002, the Partnership will adopt Statement of Financial
Accounting Standards No. 144, "Accounting for the Impairment or Disposal of
Long-Lived Assets," which changes the method of accounting for the impairment
of long-lived assets (see New Accounting Principles below).

  Environmental Remediation

   The Partnership accrues environmental remediation costs for work at
identified sites where an assessment has indicated that cleanup costs are
probable and reasonably estimable. Such accruals are undiscounted and are based
on currently available information, estimated timing of remedial actions and
related inflation assumptions, existing technology and presently enacted laws
and regulations.

  Income Taxes

   The Predecessor is included in the consolidated federal income tax return
filed by Sunoco, Inc. However, the provision for federal income taxes included
in the combined statements of income and net parent investment and the deferred
tax amounts reflected in the combined balance sheets have been determined on a
separate-return basis. Any current federal income tax amounts due on a
separate-return basis are settled with Sunoco, Inc. through the net parent
investment account. Effective with the Offering, substantially all income taxes
are the responsibility of the unitholders and not the Partnership.

  New Accounting Principles

   In June 1998, Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 133,
"Accounting for Derivative Instruments and Hedging Activities," was issued and,
in June 2000, it was amended by Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No.
138, "Accounting for Certain Derivative Instruments and Certain Hedging
Activities" (collectively, "new derivative accounting"). The new derivative
accounting requires recognition of all derivative contracts in the balance
sheet at their fair value. If the derivative contracts qualify for hedge
accounting, depending on their nature, changes in their fair values are either
offset in net income against the changes in the fair values of the items being
hedged or reflected initially as a separate component of the net parent
investment and subsequently recognized in net income when the hedged items are
recognized in net income.

   The ineffective portions of changes in the fair values of derivative
contracts that qualify for hedge accounting as well as changes in fair value of
all other derivatives are immediately recognized in net income. The new
derivative accounting was adopted effective January 1, 2001. There was no
impact on net income during 2001.

                                     F-17


<PAGE>

   In July 2001, Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 142, "Goodwill
and Other Intangible Assets" ("SFAS No. 142"), was issued. The Partnership will
adopt SFAS No. 142 effective January 1, 2002 when adoption is mandatory. SFAS
No. 142 will require the testing of goodwill and indefinite-lived intangible
assets for impairment rather than amortizing them. The Partnership is currently
assessing the impact of adopting SFAS No. 142 on its combined financial
statements. The current level of annual amortization of goodwill and
indefinite-lived intangible assets, which will be eliminated upon the adoption
of SFAS No. 142, is approximately $0.8 million.

   In August 2001, Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 143,
"Accounting for Asset Retirement Obligations" ("SFAS No. 143"), was issued.
This statement significantly changes the method of accruing for costs
associated with the retirement of fixed assets that an entity is legally
obligated to incur. The Partnership will evaluate the impact and timing of
implementing SFAS No. 143. Implementation of this standard is required no later
than January 1, 2003. In August 2001, Statement of Financial Accounting
Standards No. 144, "Accounting for the Impairment or Disposal of Long-Lived
Assets" ("SFAS No. 144"), was issued. The Partnership will adopt SFAS No. 144
effective January 1, 2002 when adoption is mandatory. Among other things, SFAS
No. 144 significantly changes the criteria that would have to be met to
classify an asset as held-for-sale. SFAS No. 144 supersedes Statement of
Financial Accounting Standards No. 121, "Accounting for the Impairment of
Long-Lived Assets and for Long-Lived Assets to be Disposed Of" and the
provisions of Accounting Principles Board Opinion 30, "Reporting the Results of
Operations--Reporting the Effects of Disposal of a Segment of a Business, and
Extraordinary, Unusual and Infrequently Occurring Events and Transactions,"
that relate to reporting the effects of a disposal of a segment of a business.
The Partnership is currently assessing the impact of adopting SFAS No. 144 on
its combined financial statements.

2.  Related Party Transactions

  Accounts Receivable, Affiliated Companies

   Substantially all of the related party transactions discussed below were
settled immediately through the net parent investment account. The balance in
accounts receivable from affiliated companies represents the net amount owed to
the Predecessor by Sunoco R&M related to the remaining intercompany
transactions.

   Affiliated revenues in the combined statements of income and net parent
investment consist of sales of crude oil as well as the provision of crude oil
and refined product pipeline transportation, terminalling and storage services
to Sunoco R&M. Affiliated revenues reflect transfer prices consistently used to
prepare segment information for Sunoco, Inc.'s historical consolidated
financial statements. Sales of crude oil are computed using the formula-based
pricing mechanism of a supply agreement with Sunoco R&M. Management of the
Partnership believes these terms to be comparable to those that could be
negotiated with an unrelated third party. Pipeline revenues are generally
determined using posted third-party tariffs. Revenues from terminalling and
storage were generally equal to all of the costs incurred for these activities,
including operating, maintenance and environmental remediation expenditures.

   Concurrently with the closing of the Offering, the Partnership entered into
a pipelines and terminals storage and throughput agreement and various other
agreements with Sunoco R&M under which the Partnership is charging Sunoco R&M
fees for services provided under these agreements comparable to those charged
in arm's-length, third-party transactions. Under the pipelines and terminals
storage and throughput agreement, Sunoco R&M has agreed to pay the Partnership
a minimum level of revenues for transporting and terminalling refined products.
Sunoco R&M also has agreed to minimum throughputs of refined products and crude
oil in the Partnership's Inkster Terminal, Fort Mifflin Terminal Complex,
Marcus Hook Tank Farm and certain crude oil

                                     F-18


<PAGE>

pipelines. In addition, effective January 1, 2002, Sunoco, Inc. adopted fee
arrangements consistent with this contract as the basis for the transfer prices
to be used in preparation of its segment information. Accordingly, such fees
will be reflected in the Predecessor's financial statements for the period
January 1, 2002 through the closing of the Offering.

   Under various other agreements entered into at the closing of the Offering,
Sunoco R&M is, among other things, purchasing from the Partnership at
market-based rates particular grades of crude oil that the Partnership's crude
oil acquisition and marketing business purchases for delivery to pipelines in:
Longview, Trent, Tye, and Colorado City, Texas; Haynesville, Louisiana;
Marysville and Lewiston, Michigan; and Tulsa, Oklahoma. At Marysville and
Lewiston, Michigan, the Partnership exchanges Michigan sweet and Michigan sour
crude oil it owns for domestic sweet crude oil supplied by Sunoco R&M at
market-based rates. The initial term of these agreements is two months. These
agreements will automatically renew on a monthly basis unless terminated by
either party on 30 days' written notice. Sunoco R&M has also agreed to lease
from the Partnership the 58 miles of interrefinery pipelines between Sunoco
R&M's Philadelphia and Marcus Hook refineries for a term of 20 years.

   Selling, general and administrative expenses in the combined statements of
income and net parent investment include costs allocated to the Predecessor
totaling $9.0 million, $10.1 million and $10.8 million for the years ended
December 31, 1999, 2000 and 2001, respectively. These expenses incurred by
Sunoco cover costs of centralized corporate functions such as legal,
accounting, treasury, engineering, information technology, insurance and other
corporate services. Such expenses are based on amounts negotiated between the
parties, which approximate Sunoco's cost of providing such services.

   Under an omnibus agreement with Sunoco, Inc. that the Partnership entered
into at the closing of the Offering, Sunoco, Inc. is continuing to provide
these services for three years for an annual administrative fee initially in
the amount of $8.0 million, which may be increased in the second and third
years following the Offering by the lesser of 2.5% or the consumer price index
for the applicable year. These costs may also increase if the Partnership makes
an acquisition or constructs additional assets that require an increase in the
level of general and administrative services received by the Partnership from
the general partner or Sunoco, Inc. The $8.0 million fee includes expenses
incurred by Sunoco, Inc. and its affiliates to perform the centralized
corporate functions described above. This fee does not include salaries of
pipeline and terminal personnel or other employees of the general partner,
including senior executives, or the cost of their employee benefits, such as
401(k), pension, and health insurance benefits. The Partnership is also
reimbursing Sunoco, Inc. and its affiliates for these costs and other direct
expenses incurred on the Partnership's behalf. In addition, the Partnership
anticipates incurring additional general and administrative costs, including
costs for tax return preparation, annual and quarterly reports to unitholders,
investor relations, registrar and transfer agent fees, and other costs related
to operating as a separate publicly held entity. The Partnership estimates that
these incremental costs will be approximately $4.0 million (unaudited) per
year, including incremental insurance costs.

   The Partnership entered into a treasury services agreement with Sunoco, Inc.
at the closing of the Offering pursuant to which it, among other things,
participates in Sunoco, Inc.'s centralized cash management program. Under this
program, all of the Partnership's cash receipts and cash disbursements are
processed, together with those of Sunoco, Inc. and its other subsidiaries,
through Sunoco, Inc.'s cash accounts with a corresponding credit or charge to
an intercompany account. The intercompany balances are settled periodically,
but no less frequently than at the end of each month. Amounts due from Sunoco
earn interest at a rate equal to the average rate of the Partnership's
third-party money market investments, while amounts due to Sunoco bear interest
at a rate equal to the interest rate provided in the Partnership's revolving
credit facility.

   The Partnership entered into a license agreement at the closing of the
Offering with Sunoco, Inc. and certain of its affiliates, including its general
partner, Sunoco Partners LLC, pursuant to which the Partnership granted to
Sunoco Partners LLC a license to the Partnership's intellectual property so
that Sunoco Partners LLC can

                                     F-19


<PAGE>

manage the Partnership's operations and create intellectual property using the
Partnership's intellectual property. Sunoco Partners LLC will assign to the
Partnership the new intellectual property it creates in operating the
Partnership's business. Sunoco Partners LLC has also licensed to the
Partnership certain of its own intellectual property for use in the conduct of
the Partnership's business and the Partnership licensed to Sunoco Partners LLC
certain of the Partnership's intellectual property for use in the conduct of
its business. The license agreement also grants to the Partnership a license to
use the trademarks, trade names, and service marks of Sunoco, Inc. in the
conduct of the Partnership's business.

   Costs of employees who work in the pipeline, terminalling, storage and crude
oil gathering operations, including senior executives, are charged directly to
the Predecessor and such charges include salary and employee benefit costs.
Employee benefits include non-contributory defined benefit retirement plans,
defined contribution 401(k) plans, employee and retiree medical, dental and
life insurance plans, incentive compensation plans (i.e., cash and stock
awards) and other such benefits. The Predecessor's share of allocated Sunoco
employee benefit plan expenses was $13.3 million, $18.7 million and $19.6
million for the years ended December 31, 1999, 2000 and 2001, respectively.
These expenses are reflected primarily in cost of products sold and operating
expenses in the combined statements of income and net parent investment. In
connection with the transfer of the Predecessor's operations to the
Partnership, these employees, including senior executives, became employees of
the Partnership's general partner or its affiliates, wholly owned subsidiaries
of Sunoco, Inc. The Partnership has no employees.

  Note Receivable from Affiliate

   Effective October 1, 2000, the Predecessor loaned $20.0 million to Sunoco.
The loan, which was evidenced by a note repaid on January 1, 2002, earned
interest at a rate based on the short-term applicable federal rate established
by the Internal Revenue Service. The interest rate on this note at December 31,
2001 was 5.41%.

  Short-Term Borrowings due Affiliate

   At December 31, 2000, the Predecessor had two short-term notes totaling
$45.0 million due Sunoco, which were repaid during 2001. The notes bore
interest at a rate based on the short-term applicable federal rate established
by the Internal Revenue Service. The weighted-average interest rate related to
these notes was 6.86% at December 31, 2000.

  Long-term Debt due Affiliate

   The Predecessor has the following notes payable to Sunoco (in thousands of

   The 5.12% note bears interest at a rate based on the short-term applicable
federal rate established by the Internal Revenue Service, while the 4.75% notes
bear interest based on the prime rate. This debt was not assumed by the
Partnership.

  Net Parent Investment

   The net parent investment represents a net balance resulting from the
settlement of intercompany transactions (including federal income taxes)
between the Predecessor and Sunoco as well as Sunoco's ownership interest in
the net assets of the Predecessor. It also reflects the Predecessor's
participation in Sunoco's central cash management program, wherein all of the
Predecessor's cash receipts are remitted to Sunoco and all cash disbursements
are funded by Sunoco. There are no terms of settlement or interest charges
attributable to this balance. The net parent investment excludes amounts loaned
to/borrowed from Sunoco evidenced by interest-bearing notes.

   The long-term debt due affiliate was not assumed by the Partnership. In
conjunction with the Offering, Sunoco Logistics Partners Operations L.P., the
operating partnership of the Partnership, issued $250.0 million of ten-year
senior notes and established a three-year $150.0 million revolving credit
facility. The net proceeds of the senior notes were distributed to Sunoco, Inc.
in connection with the contribution by Sunoco, Inc. of the Predecessor to the
Partnership. The Partnership and the operating subsidiaries of Sunoco Logistics
Partners Operations L.P. serve as guarantors of the ten-year senior notes and
of any borrowings under the revolving credit facility.

   Cash payments for interest related to the Pride note and amounts due
affiliates were $7.3 million, $12.4 million and $13.7 million in 1999, 2000 and
2001, respectively.

   The Partnership is subject to numerous federal, state and local laws which
regulate the discharge of materials into the environment or that otherwise
relate to the protection of the environment. These laws result in liabilities
and loss contingencies for remediation at the Partnership's facilities and at
third-party or formerly owned sites. The accrued liability for environmental
remediation is classified in the combined balance sheets as follows (in
thousands of dollars):

</TABLE>


   The accrued liability for environmental remediation does not include any
amounts attributable to unasserted claims, nor have any recoveries from
insurance been assumed. It is expected that the amounts accrued will be paid
over approximately ten years.

   Pretax charges against income for environmental remediation totaled $3.9
million, $8.5 million and $6.2 million in the years ended December 31, 1999,
2000 and 2001, respectively.

   Total future costs for environmental remediation activities will depend
upon, among other things, the identification of any additional sites, the
determination of the extent of the contamination at each site, the timing and
nature of required remedial actions, the technology available and needed to
meet the various existing legal requirements, the nature and extent of future
environmental laws, inflation rates and the determination of the Partnership's
liability at multi-party sites, if any, in light of uncertainties with respect
to joint and several liability, and the number, participation levels and
financial viability of other parties. As discussed below, the Partnership's
future costs will also be impacted by an indemnification from Sunoco, Inc.

   The Predecessor is a party to certain pending and threatened claims.
Although the ultimate outcome of these claims cannot be ascertained at this
time, it is reasonably possible that some portion of them could be resolved
unfavorably to the Predecessor. Management of the Partnership does not believe
that any liabilities which may arise from such claims and the environmental
matters discussed above would be material in relation to the financial position
of the Predecessor at December 31, 2001. Furthermore, management of the
Partnership does not believe that the overall costs for such matters will have
a material impact, over an extended period of time, on the Partnership's
operations, cash flows or liquidity.

   Under the omnibus agreement entered into at the closing of the Offering,
Sunoco R&M is reimbursing Sunoco Logistics Partners L.P. for operating expenses
and capital expenditures in excess of $8.0 million per year (up to an aggregate
maximum of $15.0 million over a five-year period) incurred to comply with the
U.S.

                                     F-24


<PAGE>

Department of Transportation's pipeline integrity management rule. In addition,
Sunoco R&M is, at its expense, completing for Sunoco Logistics Partners L.P.'s
Darby Creek Tank Farm certain tank maintenance and inspection projects expected
to be completed within one year from the closing of the Offering. Sunoco R&M is
also reimbursing Sunoco Logistics Partners L.P. for up to $10.0 million of
expenditures required at the Darby Creek and Marcus Hook Tank Farms to maintain
compliance with existing industry standards and regulatory requirements. The
Partnership is reflecting outlays for these programs as operating expenses or
capital expenditures, as appropriate. Capital expenditures are being
depreciated over their useful lives. Reimbursements by Sunoco R&M are being
reflected as capital contributions.

   Sunoco, Inc. has indemnified Sunoco Logistics Partners L.P. for 30 years
from environmental and toxic tort liabilities related to the assets contributed
to the Partnership that arise from the operation of such assets prior to the
closing of the Offering. Sunoco, Inc. has indemnified the Partnership for 100%
of all losses asserted within the first 21 years of closing. Sunoco, Inc.'s
share of liability for claims asserted thereafter will decrease by 10% a year.
For example, for a claim asserted during the twenty-third year after closing,
Sunoco, Inc. would be required to indemnify the Partnership for 80% of its
loss. There is no monetary cap on the amount of indemnity coverage provided by
Sunoco, Inc. Sunoco Logistics Partners L.P. has agreed to indemnify Sunoco,
Inc. and its affiliates for events and conditions associated with the operation
of the Partnership's assets that occur on or after the closing of the Offering
and for environmental and toxic tort liabilities to the extent Sunoco, Inc. is
not required to indemnify the Partnership.

   Sunoco, Inc. also has indemnified Sunoco Logistics Partners L.P. for
liabilities, other than environmental and toxic tort liabilities related to the
assets contributed to the Partnership, that arise out of Sunoco, Inc. and its
affiliates' ownership and operation of the assets prior to the closing of the
Offering and that are asserted within 10 years after closing. In addition,
Sunoco, Inc. has indemnified the Partnership from liabilities relating to
certain defects in title to the assets contributed to the Partnership and
associated with failure to obtain certain consents and permits necessary to
conduct its business that arise within 10 years after closing as well as from
liabilities relating to legal actions currently pending against Sunoco, Inc. or
its affiliates and events and conditions associated with any assets retained by
Sunoco, Inc. or its affiliates.

9.  Financial Instruments and Concentration of Credit Risk

   The Predecessor's current assets (other than inventories and deferred income
taxes) and current liabilities are financial instruments. The estimated fair
value of these financial instruments approximates their carrying amounts. The
estimated fair values of the long-term debt (primarily amounts due affiliate)
at December 31, 2000 and 2001 were $146.6 million and $71.7 million,
respectively, compared to the carrying amounts of $144.8 million and $69.6
million, respectively. The estimated fair value of the $20.0 million note
receivable from affiliate was $19.9 million at December 31, 2000. The estimated
fair values were based upon the current interest rates at the balance sheet
dates for similar issues.

   Approximately 66% of the sales and other operating revenue recognized by the
Predecessor during 2001 is derived from Sunoco R&M. The Partnership sells crude
oil to Sunoco R&M, transports crude oil and refined products to/from Sunoco
R&M's refineries and provides terminalling and storage services for Sunoco R&M.
The Partnership does not believe that the transactions with Sunoco R&M expose
it to significant credit risk.

   The Partnership's other trade relationships are primarily with major
integrated oil companies, independent oil companies and other pipelines and
wholesalers. These concentrations of customers may affect the Partnership's
overall credit risk in that the customers (including Sunoco R&M) may be
similarly affected by changes in economic, regulatory or other factors. The
Partnership's customers' credit positions are analyzed prior to extending
credit. The Partnership manages its exposure to credit risk through credit
analysis, credit approvals, credit limits and monitoring procedures, and for
certain transactions may utilize letters of credit, prepayments and guarantees.

10.  Acquisition of Pride Companies, L.P. Crude Oil Transportation and
Marketing Operations

   On October 1, 1999, the Predecessor acquired the crude oil transportation
and marketing operations of Pride Companies, L.P. ("Pride") for $29.6 million
in cash and the assumption of $5.3 million of debt. The acquisition included
Pride's 800-mile crude oil pipeline system, 800,000 barrels of tankage and
related assets, and the right to purchase 35,000 barrels per day of third-party
lease crude oil.

   The acquisition has been accounted for as a purchase. The results of
operations have been included in the combined statements of income and net
parent investment since the date of acquisition. The purchase price has been
allocated to the assets acquired and liabilities assumed based on their
relative fair market values at the acquisition date. The following is a summary
of the effects of this transaction on the Predecessor's financial position as
of the acquisition date (in thousands of dollars):

                                                           =======
</TABLE>


   The unaudited pro forma net income for the year ended December 31, 1999,
assuming the acquisition had occurred on January 1, 1999, was $34.8 million.
The pro forma information does not purport to be indicative of the results that
actually would have been obtained if the combined operations had been conducted
during the periods presented and is not intended to be a projection of future
results.

                       NOTE TO PARTNERSHIP BALANCE SHEET

1.  Nature of Operations

   Sunoco Logistics Partners L.P., a Delaware limited partnership (the
"Partnership"), was formed on October 15, 2001 to ultimately acquire a
substantial portion of the refined product pipelines, terminalling and storage
assets, crude oil pipelines, and crude oil acquisition and marketing assets of
Sunoco, Inc. (the "Predecessor"). These assets are located in the Northeast and
Midwest United States. Sunoco Partners LLC (the Partnership's general partner)
and the Partnership's limited partner are both wholly owned subsidiaries of
Sunoco, Inc. The Partnership has adopted a January 1 to December 31 fiscal
year. Sunoco Partners LLC contributed $20 and the wholly owned subsidiary of
Sunoco, Inc. contributed $980 to the Partnership on October 18, 2001. There
have been no other transactions involving the Partnership as of December 31,
2001.

   On February 8, 2002, Sunoco, Inc., through Sunoco Partners LLC, contributed
the Predecessor to the Partnership in exchange for: (i) a 2% general partner
interest in the Partnership; (ii) incentive distribution rights (as defined in
the partnership agreement); (iii) 5,633,639 common units; (iv) 11,383,639
subordinated units; and (v) a special interest representing the right to
receive from the Partnership on the closing of the initial public offering the
net proceeds from the issuance of $250 million aggregate principal amount of
ten-year senior notes by Sunoco Logistics Partners Operations L.P., a
subsidiary of the Partnership. The Partnership guarantees these notes. The net
proceeds are estimated to be $245.3 million. The Partnership concurrently
issued 5.75 million common units (including 750,000 units issued pursuant to
the underwriters' over-allotment option), representing a 24.8% limited
partnership interest in the Partnership, in an initial public offering at a
price of $20.25 per unit. Proceeds from the initial public offering, which
totalled approximately $102 million net of underwriting discounts and offering
expenses, were used by the Partnership to establish working capital that was
not contributed to the Partnership by Sunoco, Inc.

   Sunoco Partners LLC, as general partner, manages the operations and
activities of the Partnership and owes a fiduciary duty to the Partnership's
unitholders. Most of the Partnership's operations personnel are employees of
Sunoco Partners LLC. Sunoco Partners LLC is liable, as general partner, for all
of the Partnership's debts (to the extent not paid from the Partnership's
assets), except for indebtedness or other obligations that are made
specifically nonrecourse to the general partner.

   Sunoco Partners LLC does not receive any management fee or other
compensation for its management of the Partnership. Sunoco Partners LLC and its
affiliates are reimbursed for expenses incurred on the Partnership's behalf.
These expenses include the costs of employee, officer, and director
compensation and benefits properly allocable to the Partnership, and all other
expenses necessary or appropriate to the conduct of the business of, and
allocable to, the Partnership. The partnership agreement provides that Sunoco
Partners LLC, as general partner, will determine the expenses that are
allocable to the Partnership in any reasonable manner determined by Sunoco
Partners LLC in its sole discretion.

Item 22.  Undertakings.

   The co-registrants hereby undertake:

   (1) To file, during any period in which offers or sales are being made of
the securities registered hereby, a post-effective amendment to this
Registration Statement:

      (i) To include any prospectus required by Section 10(a)(3) of the
   Securities Act of 1933;

      (ii) To reflect in the prospectus any facts or events arising after the
   effective date of this Registration Statement (or the most recent
   post-effective amendment thereof) which, individually or in the aggregate,
   represent a fundamental change in the information set forth in the
   Registration Statement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, any increase or
   decrease in volume of securities offered (if the total dollar value of
   securities offered would not exceed that which was registered) and any
   derivation from the low or high end of the estimated maximum offering range
   may be reflected in the form of prospectus filed with the Commission
   pursuant to Rule 424(b) if, in the aggregate, the changes in volume and
   price represent no more than a 20% change in the maximum aggregate offering
   price set forth in the "Calculation of Registration Fee" table in the
   effective Registration Statement.

      (iii) To include any material information with respect to the plan of
   distribution not previously disclosed in the Registration Statement or any
   material change to such information in the Registration Statement.

   (2) That, for the purpose of determining any liability under the Securities
Act of 1933, each such post-effective amendment shall be deemed to be a new
registration statement relating to the securities offered therein, and the
offering of such securities at that time shall be deemed to be the initial bona
fide offering thereof.

   (3) To remove from registration by means of a post-effective amendment any
of the securities being registered which remain unsold at the termination of
the offering.

   (4) That prior to any public reoffering of the securities registered
hereunder through use of prospectus which is a part of this registration
statement, by any person or party who is deemed to be an underwriter within the
meaning of Rule 145(c), the issuer undertakes that such reoffering prospectus
will contain the information called for by the applicable registration form
with respect to reofferings by persons who may be deemed underwriters, in
addition to the information called for by the other items of the applicable
form.

   (5) That every prospectus: (i) that is filed pursuant to Paragraph (4)
immediately preceding, or (ii) that purports to meet the requirements of
Section 10(a)(3) of the Act and is issued in connection with an offering of
securities subject to Rule 415, will be filed as a part of an amendment to the
registration statement and will not be used until such amendment is effective,
and that, for purposes of determining any liability under the Securities Act of
1933, each such post-effective amendment shall be deemed to be a new
registration statement relating to the securities offered therein, and the
offering of such securities at that time shall be deemed to be the initial bona
fide offering thereof.

   Insofar as indemnification for liabilities arising under the Securities Act
of 1933 may be permitted to directors, officers and controlling persons of the
registrant pursuant to the foregoing provisions, or otherwise, each registrant
has been advised that in the opinion of the Securities and Exchange Commission
such indemnification is against public policy as expressed in the Securities
Act and is, therefore, unenforceable. In the event that a claim for
indemnification against such liabilities (other than the payment by the
registrant of expenses incurred or paid by a director, officer or controlling
person of the registrant in the successful defense of any action, suit or
proceeding) is asserted by such director, officer or controlling person in
connection with the securities being registered, the registrant will, unless in
the opinion of its counsel the matter has been settled by controlling
precedent, submit to a court of appropriate jurisdiction the question of
whether such indemnification by it is against public policy as expressed in the
Securities Act and will be governed by the final adjudication of such issue.

Ladies and Gentlemen:

     We have acted as counsel for Sunoco Logistics Partners Operations L.P., a
Delaware limited partnership (the "Partnership"), with respect to the
preparation of the Registration Statement on Form S-4 (the "Registration
Statement") filed by the Partnership, as issuer, and by Sunoco Logistics
Partners L.P., a Delaware limited partnership, Sunoco Pipeline L.P., a Texas
limited partnership, and Sunoco Partners Marketing & Terminals L.P., a Texas
limited partnership, as guarantors (collectively, the "Guarantors"), with the
Securities and Exchange Commission (the "Commission") in connection with (i) the
issuance by the Partnership of up to $250,000,000 aggregate principal amount of
its 7.25% Senior Notes due 2012 (the "New Notes") registered pursuant to the
Registration Statement under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the
"Securities Act"), in exchange for up to $250,000,000 aggregate principal amount
of the Partnership's outstanding 7.25% Senior Notes due 2012 (the
 "Outstanding
Notes") and (ii) the Guarantors' unconditional senior guarantees of the payment
of the New Notes (the "New Guarantees") also registered pursuant to the
Registration Statement under the Securities Act. The New Notes will be issued
under an Indenture, dated as of February 7, 2002 (the "Indenture"), among the
Partnership, the Guarantors and Wachovia Bank National Association (formerly
First Union National Bank), as trustee (the "Trustee").

     Before rendering our opinions hereinafter set forth, we examined originals
or copies, certified or otherwise identified to our satisfaction, of such
certificates, documents, instruments and records of the Partnership and the
Guarantors, including the Indenture, and we reviewed such questions of law, as
we considered appropriate.


<PAGE>

     Based on the foregoing, we are of the opinion that:

          (i) When the Registration Statement has become effective under the
Securities Act, and the New Notes have been duly executed and authenticated in
accordance with the Indenture and issued as contemplated in the Registration
Statement, the New Notes will constitute valid and legally binding obligations
of the Partnership, subject to bankruptcy, insolvency (including, without
limitation, all laws relating to fraudulent transfers), reorganization,
moratorium and similar laws relating to or affecting creditors' rights generally
and to general equitable principles.

          (ii) When the Registration Statement has become effective under the
Securities Act, and the New Guarantees have been duly executed and authenticated
in accordance with the Indenture and issued as contemplated in the Registration
Statement, the New Guarantees will constitute valid and legally binding
obligations of the Guarantors, subject to bankruptcy, insolvency (including,
without limitation, all laws relating to fraudulent transfers), reorganization,
moratorium and similar laws relating to or affecting creditors' rights generally
and to general equitable principles.

     We hereby consent to the filing of this opinion as an exhibit to the
Registration Statement and to the reference to our firm under the caption "Legal
Matters" in the Prospectus forming part of the Registration Statement. By giving
such consent, we do not admit that we are within the category of persons whose
consent is required under Section 7 of the Securities Act or the rules and
regulations of the Commission issued thereunder.

                                        Very truly yours,

                                        /s/ Vinson & Elkins L.L.P.


                                        VINSON & ELKINS L.L.P.

For the purpose of organizing an Association to carry on the business of banking
under the laws of the United States, the undersigned do enter into the following
Articles of Association:

    FIRST.  The title of this Association shall be WACHOVIA BANK, NATIONAL
    -----
ASSOCIATION.


    SECOND. The main office of the Association shall be in Charlotte, County of
    ------
Mecklenburg, State of North Carolina. The general business of the Association
shall be conducted at its main office and its branches.

    THIRD.  The Board of Directors of this Association shall consist of not less
    -----
than five nor more than twenty-five directors, the exact number of directors
within such minimum and maximum limits to be fixed and determined from time to
time by resolution of a majority of the full Board of Directors or by resolution
of the shareholders at any annual or special meeting thereof. Unless otherwise
provided by the laws of the United States, any vacancy in the Board of Directors
for any reason, including an increase in the number thereof, may be filled by
action of the Board of Directors.

    FOURTH. The annual meeting of the shareholders for the election of directors
    ------
and the transaction of whatever other business may be brought before said
meeting shall be held at the main office or such other place as the Board of
Directors may designate, on the day of each year specified therefor in the
By-Laws, but if no election is held on that day, it may be held on any
subsequent day according to the provisions of law; and all elections shall be
held according to such lawful regulations as may be prescribed by the Board of
Directors.

    Nominations for election to the Board of Directors may be made by the Board
of Directors or by any stockholder of any outstanding class of capital stock of
the bank entitled to vote for election of directors. Nominations, other than

in writing and shall be delivered or mailed to the President of the bank and to
the Comptroller of the Currency, Washington, D.C., not less than 14 days nor
more than 50 days prior to any meeting of stockholders called for the election
of directors, provided, however, that if less than 21 days' notice of the

    FIFTH.
    -----

    (a) General. The amount of capital stock of this Association shall be (I)
        -------
25,000,000 shares of common stock of the par value of twenty dollars ($20.00)
each (the "Common Stock") and (ii) 160,540 shares of preferred stock of the par
value of one dollar ($1.00) each (the "Non-Cumulative Preferred Stock"),
having the rights, privileges and preferences set forth below, but said capital
stock may be increased or decreased from time to time in accordance with the
provisions of the laws of the United States.

    (b)  Terms of the Non-Cumulative Preferred Stock.
         -------------------------------------------

    1. General. Each share of Non-Cumulative Preferred Stock shall be identical
       -------
    in all respects with the other shares of Non-Cumulative Preferred Stock. The
    authorized number of shares of Non-Cumulative Preferred Stock may from time
    to time be increased or decreased (but not below the number then
    outstanding) by the Board of Directors. Shares of Non-Cumulative Preferred
    Stock redeemed by the Association shall be canceled and shall revert to
    authorized but unissued shares of Non-Cumulative Preferred Stock.

    2.  Dividends.
        ----------

         (a)  General.  The holders of Non-Cumulative Preferred Stock shall be
              -------
         entitled to receive, when, as and if declared by the Board of
         Directors, but only out of funds legally available therefor,
         non-cumulative cash dividends at the annual rate of $83.75 per share,
         and no more, payable quarterly on the first days of December, March,
         June and September, respectively, in each year with respect to the
         quarterly dividend period (or portion thereof) ending on the day
         preceding such respective dividend payment date, to shareholders of
         record on the respective date, not exceeding fifty days preceding such
         dividend payment date, fixed for that purpose by the Board of Directors
         in advance of payment of each particular dividend. Notwithstanding the
         foregoing, the cash dividend to be paid on the first dividend payment
         date after the initial issuance of Non-Cumulative Preferred Stock and
         on any dividend payment date with respect to a partial dividend period
         shall be $83.75 per share multiplied by the fraction produced by
         dividing the number of days since such initial issuance or in such
         partial dividend period, as the case may be, by 360.

         (b) Non-cumulative Dividends. Dividends on the shares of NonCumulative
             ------------------------
         Stock shall not be cumulative and no rights shall accrue to the holders
         of shares of Non-Cumulative Preferred Stock by reason of the fact that
         the Association may fail to declare or pay dividends on the shares of
         Non-Cumulative Preferred Stock in any amount in any quarterly dividend
         period, whether or not the earnings of the Association in any quarterly
         dividend period were sufficient to pay such dividends in whole or in
         part, and the Association shall have no obligation at any time to pay
         any such dividend.

         (c) Payment of Dividends. So long as any share of Non-Cumulative
             --------------------
         Preferred Stock remains outstanding, no dividend whatsoever shall be
         paid or declared and no distribution made on any junior stock other
         than a dividend payable in junior stock, and no shares of junior stock
         shall be purchased, redeemed or otherwise acquired for consideration by
         the Association, directly or indirectly (other than as a result of a
         reclassification of junior stock, or the exchange or conversion of one
         junior stock for or into another junior stock, or other than through
         the use of the proceeds of a substantially contemporaneous sale of
         other junior stock), unless all dividends on all shares of
         non-cumulative Preferred Stock and non-cumulative Preferred Stock
         ranking on a parity as to dividends with the


<PAGE>

         shares of Non-Cumulative Preferred Stock for the most recent dividend
         period ended prior to the date of such payment or declaration shall
         have been paid in full and all dividends on all shares of cumulative
         Preferred Stock ranking on a parity as to dividends with the shares of
         Non-Cumulative Stock (notwithstanding that dividends on such stock are
         cumulative) for all past dividend periods shall have been paid in
         full. Subject to the foregoing, and not otherwise, such dividends
         (payable in cash, stock or otherwise) as may be determined by the
         Board of Directors may be declared and paid on any junior stock from
         time to time out of any funds legally available therefor, and the
         Non-Cumulative Preferred Stock shall not be entitled to participate in
         any such dividends, whether payable in cash, stock or otherwise. No
         dividends shall be paid or declared upon any shares of any class or
         series of stock of the Association ranking on a parity (whether
         dividends on such stock are cumulative or non-cumulative) with the
         Non-Cumulative Preferred Stock in the payment of dividends for any
         period unless at or prior to the time of such payment or declaration
         all dividends payable on the Non-cumulative Preferred Stock for the
         most recent dividend period ended prior to the date of such payment or
         declaration shall have been paid in full. When dividends are not paid
         in full, as aforesaid, upon the Non-Cumulative Preferred Stock and any
         other series of Preferred Stock ranking on a parity as to dividends
         (whether dividends on such stock are cumulative or non-cumulative)
         with the Non-Cumulative Preferred Stock, all dividends declared upon
         the Non-Cumulative Preferred Stock and any other series of Preferred
         Stock ranking on a parity as to dividends with the Non-Cumulative
         Preferred Stock shall be declared pro rata so that the amount of
         dividends declared per share on the Non-cumulative Preferred Stock and
         such other Preferred Stock shall in all cases bear to each other the
         same ratio that accrued dividends per share on the Non-Cumulative
         Preferred Stock (but without any accumulation in respect of any unpaid
         dividends for prior dividend periods on the shares of Non-Cumulative
         Stock) and such other Preferred Stock bear to each other. No interest,
         or sum of money in lieu of interest, shall be payable in respect of
         any dividend payment or payments on the Non-Cumulative Preferred Stock
         which may be in arrears.

    3.  Voting.  The holders of Non-Cumulative Preferred Stock shall not have
        ------
any right to vote for the election of directors or for any other purpose.

    4.  Redemption.
        ----------

         (a)  Optional Redemption.  The Association, at the option of the Board
              -------------------
         of Directors, may redeem the whole or any part of the shares of
         Non-Cumulative Preferred Stock at the time outstanding, at any time or
         from time to time after the fifth anniversary of the date of original
         issuance of the Non-Cumulative Preferred Stock, upon notice given as
         hereinafter specified, at the redemption price per share equal to
         $1,000 plus an amount equal to the amount of accrued and unpaid
         dividends from the immediately preceding dividend payment date (but
         without any accumulation for unpaid dividends for prior dividend
         periods on the shares of Non-Cumulative Preferred Stock) to the
         redemption date.

         (b) Procedures. Notice of every redemption of shares of Non-Cumulative
         Preferred Stock shall be mailed by first class mail, postage prepaid,
         addressed to the holders of record of the shares to be redeemed at
         their respective last addresses as they shall appear on the books of
         the Association. Such mailing shall be at least 10 days and not more
         than 60 days prior to the date fixed for redemption. Any notice which
         is mailed in the manner herein provided shall be conclusively presumed
         to have been duly given, whether or not the shareholder receives such
         notice, and failure duly to give such notice by mail, or any defect in
         such notice, to any holder of shares of Non-Cumulative Preferred Stock
         designated for redemption shall not affect the validity of the
         proceedings for the redemption of any other shares of Non-Cumulative
         Preferred Stock.


<PAGE>

         In case of redemption of a part only of the shares of Non-Cumulative
         Preferred Stock at the time outstanding the redemption may be either
         pro rata or by lot or by such other means as the Board of Directors of
         the Association in its discretion shall determine. The Board of
         Directors shall have full power and authority, subject to the
         provisions herein contained, to prescribe the terms and conditions upon
         which shares of the Non-Cumulative Preferred Stock shall be redeemed
         from time to time.

         If notice of redemption shall have been duly given, and, if on or
         before the redemption date specified therein, all funds necessary for
         such redemption shall have been set aside by the Association, separate
         and apart from its other funds, in trust for the pro rata benefit of
         the holders of the shares called for redemption, so as to be and
         continue to be available therefor, then, notwithstanding that any
         certificate for shares so called for redemption shall not have been
         surrendered for cancellation, all shares so called for redemption shall
         no longer be deemed outstanding on and after such redemption date, and
         all rights with respect to such shares shall forthwith on such
         redemption date cease and terminate, except only the right of the
         holders thereof to, receive the amount payable on redemption thereof,
         without interest.

         If such notice of redemption shall have been duly given or if the
         Association shall have given to the bank or trust company hereinafter
         referred to irrevocable authorization promptly to give such notice,
         and, if on or before the redemption date specified therein, the funds
         necessary for such redemption shall have been deposited by the
         Association with such bank or trust company in trust for the pro rata
         benefit of the holders of the shares called for redemption, then,
         notwithstanding that any certificate for shares so called for
         redemption shall not have been surrendered for cancellation, from and
         after the time of such deposit, all shares so called for redemption
         shall no longer be deemed to be outstanding and all rights with respect
         to such shares shall forthwith cease and terminate, except only the
         right of the holders thereof to receive from such bank or trust company
         at any time after the time of such deposit the funds so deposited,
         without interest. The aforesaid bank or trust company shall be
         organized and in good standing under the laws of the United States of
         America or any state thereof, shall have capital, surplus and undivided
         profits aggregating at least $50,000,000 according to its last
         published statement of condition, and shall be identified in the notice
         of redemption. Any interest accrued on such funds shall be paid to the
         Association from time to time. In case fewer than all the shares of
         Non-Cumulative Preferred Stock represented by a stock certificate are
         redeemed, a new certificate shall be issued representing the unredeemed
         shares without cost to the holder thereof.

         Any funds so set aside or deposited, as the case may be, and unclaimed
         at the end of the relevant escheat period under applicable state law
         from such redemption date shall, to the extent permitted by law, be
         released or repaid to the Association, after which repayment the
         holders of the shares so called for redemption shall look only to the
         Association for payment thereof.

         5.  Liquidation.
             -----------

         (a) Liquidation Preference. In the event of any voluntary liquidation,
             ----------------------
         dissolution or winding up of the affairs of the Association, the
         holders of Non-cumulative Preferred Stock shall be entitled, before any
         distribution or payment is made to the holders of any junior stock, to
         be paid in full an amount per share equal to an amount equal to $1,000
         plus an amount equal to the amount of accrued and unpaid dividends per
         share from the immediately preceding dividend payment date (but without
         any accumulation for unpaid


<PAGE>

         dividends for prior dividend periods on the shares of Non-cumulative
         Preferred Stock) per share to such distribution or payment date (the
         "liquidation amount").

         In the event of any involuntary liquidation, dissolution or winding up
         of the affairs of the Association, then, before any distribution or
         payment shall be made to the holders of any junior stock, the holders
         of Non-Cumulative Preferred Stock shall be entitled to be paid in full
         an amount per share equal to the liquidation amount.

         If such payment shall have been made in full to all holders of shares
         of Non-Cumulative Preferred Stock, the remaining assets of the
         Association shall be distributed among the holders of junior stock,
         according to their respective rights and preferences and in each case
         according to their respective numbers of shares.

         (b) Insufficient Assets. In the event that, upon any such voluntary or
             -------------------
         involuntary liquidation, dissolution or winding up, the available
         assets of the Association are insufficient to pay such liquidation
         amount on all outstanding shares of Non-cumulative Preferred Stock,
         then the holders of Non-Cumulative Preferred Stock shall share ratably
         in any distribution of assets in proportion to the full amounts to
         which they would otherwise be respectively entitled.

         (c) Interpretation. For the purposes of this paragraph 5, the
             --------------
         consolidation or merger of the Association with any other corporation
         or association shall not be deemed to constitute a liquidation,
         dissolution or winding up of the Association.

    6.  Preemptive Rights.  The Non-Cumulative Preferred Stock is not entitled
        -----------------
    to any preemptive, subscription, conversion or exchange rights in respect of
    any securities of the Association.

    7.  Definitions. As used herein with respect to the Non-Cumulative Preferred
        -----------
    Stock, the following terms shall have the following meanings:

         (a) The term "junior stock" shall mean the Common Stock and any other
         class or series of shares of the Association hereafter authorized over
         which the Non-Cumulative Preferred Stock has preference or priority in
         the payment of dividends or in the distribution of assets on any
         liquidation, dissolution or winding up of the Association.

         (b) The term "accrued dividends", with respect to any share of any
         class or series, shall mean an amount computed at the annual dividend
         rate for the class or series of which the particular share is a part,
         from, if such share is cumulative, the date on which dividends on such
         share became cumulative to and including the date to which such
         dividends are to be accrued, less the aggregate amount of all dividends
         theretofore paid thereon and, if such share is noncumulative, the
         relevant date designated to and including the date to which such
         dividends are accrued, less the aggregate amount of all dividends
         theretofore paid with respect to such period.

         (c) The term "Preferred Stock" shall mean all outstanding shares of all
         series of preferred stock of the Association as defined in this Article
         Fifth of the Articles of Association, as amended, of the Association.

    8. Restriction on Transfer. No shares of Non-Cumulative Preferred Stock, or
       -----------------------
    any interest therein, may be sold, pledged, transferred or otherwise
    disposed of without the prior written consent of the Association. The
    foregoing restriction shall be stated on any certificate for any shares of
    Non-Cumulative Preferred Stock.


<PAGE>

    9.  Additional Rights.  The shares of Non-Cumulative Preferred Stock shall
        -----------------
    not have any relative, participating, optional or other special rights and
    powers other than as set forth herein.

    SIXTH. The Board of Directors shall appoint one of its members President of
    -----
this Association, who shall be Chairman of the Board, unless the Board appoints
another director to be the Chairman. The Board of Directors shall have the power
to appoint one or more Vice Presidents; and to appoint a cashier or such other

The OCC also authorizes the resulting bank, should the merger occur between Call
Report data to recalculate its legal lending limit. The new lending limit should
be calculated by using data from the last Call Report of the individual banks
filed prior to consummating the consolidation as adjusted for the combination.
The resulting bank will then file a new Call Report and begin calculating its
legal lending limit according to 12 C.F.R. 32.4(a) at the end of the quarter
following consummation of the consolidation.

                                Emergency By-laws

         In the event of an emergency declared by the President of the United
States or the person performing his functions, the officers and employees of
this Association will continue to conduct the affairs of the Association under
such guidance from the directors or the Executive Committee as may be available
except as to matters which by statute require specific approval of the Board of
Directors and subject to conformance with any applicable governmental directives
during the emergency.

                        OFFICERS PRO TEMPORE AND DISASTER

         Section 1. The surviving members of the Board of Directors or the
Executive Committee shall have the power, in the absence or disability of any
officer, or upon the refusal of any officer to act, to delegate and prescribe
such officer's powers and duties to any other officer, or to any director, for
the time being.

         Section 2. In the event of a state of disaster of sufficient severity
to prevent the conduct and management of the affairs and business of this
Association by its directors and officers as contemplated by these By-laws, any
two or more available members of the then incumbent Executive Committee shall
constitute a quorum of that Committee for the full conduct and management of the
affairs and business of the Association in accordance with the provisions of
Article II of these By-laws; and in addition, such Committee shall be empowered
to exercise all of the powers reserved to the General Trust Committee under
Section 5.3 of Article V hereof. In the event of the unavailability, at such
time, of a minimum of two members of the then incumbent Executive Committee, any
three available directors shall constitute the Executive Committee for the full
conduct and management of the affairs and business of the Association in
accordance with the foregoing provisions of this section. This By-law shall be
subject to implementation by resolutions of the Board of Directors passed from
time to time for that purpose, and any provisions of these By-laws (other than
this section) and any resolutions which are contrary to the provisions of this
section or to the provisions of any such implementary resolutions shall be
suspended until it shall be determined by an interim Executive Committee acting
under this section that it shall be to the advantage of this Association to
resume the conduct and management of its affairs and business under all of the
other provisions of these By-laws.

                               Officer Succession

         BE IT RESOLVED, that if consequent upon war or warlike damage or
disaster, the Chief Executive Officer of this Association cannot be located by
the then acting Head Officer or is unable to assume or to continue normal
executive duties, then the authority and duties of the Chief Executive Officer
shall, without further action of the Board of Directors, be automatically
assumed by one of the following persons in the order designated:

         Chairman
         President


<PAGE>

         Division Head/Area Administrator - Within this officer class, officers
         shall take seniority on the basis of length of service in such office
         or, in the event of equality, length of service as an officer of the
         Association.

         Any one of the above persons who in accordance with this resolution
assumes the authority and duties of the Chief Executive Officer shall continue
to serve until he resigns or until five-sixths of the other officers who are
attached to the then acting Head Office decide in writing he is unable to
perform said duties or until the elected Chief Executive Officer of this
Association, or a person higher on the above list, shall become available to
perform the duties of Chief Executive Officer of the Association.

         BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that anyone dealing with this Association may
accept a certification by any three officers that a specified individual is
acting as Chief Executive Officer in accordance with this resolution; and that
anyone accepting such certification may continue to consider it in force until
notified in writing of a change, said notice of change to carry the signatures
of three officers of the Association.

                               Alternate Locations

         The offices of the Association at which its business shall be conducted
shall be the main office thereof in each city which is designated as a City
Office (and branches, if any), and any other legally authorized location which
may be leased or acquired by this Association to carry on its business. During
an emergency resulting in any authorized place of business of this Association
being unable to function, the business ordinarily conducted at such location
shall be relocated elsewhere in suitable quarters, in addition to or in lieu of
the locations heretofore mentioned, as may be designated by the Board of
Directors or by the Executive Committee or by such persons as are then, in
accordance with resolutions adopted from time to time by the Board of Directors
dealing with the exercise of authority in the time of such emergency, conducting
the affairs of this Association. Any temporarily relocated place of business of
this Association shall be returned to its legally authorized location as soon as
practicable and such temporary place of business shall then be discontinued.

                               Acting Head Offices

         BE IT RESOLVED, that in case of and provided because of war or warlike
damage or disaster, the General Office of this Association, located in
Charlotte, North Carolina, is unable temporarily to continue its functions, the
Raleigh office, located in Raleigh, North Carolina, shall automatically and
without further action of this Board of Directors, become the "Acting Head
Office of this Association";

         BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that if by reason of said war or warlike damage
or disaster, both the General Office of this Association and the said Raleigh
Office of this Association are unable to carry on their functions, then and in
such case, the Asheville Office of this Association, located in Asheville, North
Carolina, shall, without further action of this Board of Directors, become the
"Acting Head Office of this Association"; and if neither the Raleigh Office nor
the Asheville Office can carry on their functions, then the Greensboro Office of
this Association, located in Greensboro, North Carolina, shall, without further
action of this Board of Directors, become the "Acting Head Office of this
Association"; and if neither the Raleigh Office, the Asheville Office, nor the
Greensboro Office can carry on their functions, then the Lumberton Office of

action of this Board of Directors, become the "Acting Head Office of this
Association". The Head Office shall resume its functions at its legally

   The undersigned hereby acknowledges receipt and review of the Prospectus,
dated      , 2002 (the "Prospectus"), of Sunoco Logistics Partners Operations
L.P., a Delaware limited partnership (the "Company"), and this Letter of
Transmittal (the "Letter of Transmittal"), which together describe the
Company's offer (the "Exchange Offer") to exchange its 7.25% Senior Notes due
2012 (the "New Notes") that have been registered under the Securities Act of
1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"), for a like principal amount of its
issued and outstanding 7.25% Senior Notes due 2012 (the "Outstanding Notes").
Capitalized terms used but not defined herein have the respective meaning given
to them in the Prospectus.

   The Company reserves the right, at any time or various times, to extend the
Exchange Offer at its discretion, in which event the term "Expiration Date"
shall mean the latest date to which the Exchange Offer is extended. The Company
shall notify the Exchange Agent and each registered holder of the Outstanding
Notes of any extension by oral or written notice no later than 9:00 a.m., New
York City time, on the business day after the previously scheduled Expiration
Date.

   This Letter of Transmittal is to be used by a holder of Outstanding Notes if
Outstanding Notes are to be forwarded herewith. An Agent's Message (as defined
in the next sentence) is to be used if delivery of Outstanding Notes is to be
made by book-entry transfer to the account maintained by the Exchange Agent at
The Depository Trust Company (the "Book-Entry Transfer Facility") pursuant to
the procedures set forth in the Prospectus under the caption "Exchange
Offer--Procedures for Tendering." The term "Agent's Message" means a message,
transmitted by the Book-Entry Transfer Facility and received by the Exchange
Agent and forming a part of the confirmation of a book-entry transfer
("Book-Entry Confirmation"), which states that the Book-Entry Transfer Facility
has received an express acknowledgment from a participant tendering Outstanding
Notes that are the subject of such Book-Entry Confirmation and that such
participant has received and agrees to be bound by the terms of the Letter of
Transmittal and that the Company may enforce such agreement against such
participant. Holders of Outstanding Notes whose Outstanding Notes are not
immediately available, or who are unable to deliver their Outstanding Notes and
all other documents required by this Letter of Transmittal to the Exchange
Agent on or prior to the Expiration Date, or who are unable to complete the
procedure for book-entry transfer on a timely basis, must tender their
Outstanding Notes according to the guaranteed delivery procedures set forth in
the Prospectus under the caption "Exchange Offer--Guaranteed Delivery
Procedures." Delivery of documents to the Book-Entry Transfer Facility does not
constitute delivery to the Exchange Agent.

   The term "holder" with respect to the Exchange Offer means any person in
whose name Outstanding Notes are registered on the books of the Company or any
other person who has obtained a properly completed bond power from such
registered holder. The undersigned has completed, executed and delivered this
Letter of Transmittal to indicate the action the undersigned desires to take
with respect to the Exchange Offer. Holders who wish to tender their
Outstanding Notes must complete this Letter of Transmittal in its entirety.

   1.  The undersigned hereby tenders to the Company the Outstanding Notes

Notes in exchange for each $1,000 principal amount at maturity of the

Transmittal.

   2.  The undersigned hereby represents and warrants that it has full
authority to tender the Outstanding Notes described above. The undersigned
will, upon request, execute and deliver any additional documents deemed by the
Company to be necessary or desirable to complete the tender of Outstanding
Notes.

   3.  The undersigned understands that the tender of the Outstanding Notes
pursuant to all of the procedures set forth in the Prospectus will constitute
an agreement between the undersigned and the Company as to the terms and
conditions set forth in the Prospectus.

   4.  The undersigned acknowledge(s) that the Exchange Offer is being made in
reliance upon interpretations contained in no-action letters issued to third
parties by the staff of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC"),
including Exxon Capital Holdings Corp., SEC No-Action Letter (available April
13, 1989), Morgan Stanley & Co., Inc., SEC No-Action Letter (available June 5,
1991) and Shearman & Sterling, SEC No-Action Letter (available July 2, 1993),
that the New Notes issued in exchange for the Outstanding Notes pursuant to the
Exchange Offer may be offered for resale, resold and otherwise transferred by
holders thereof (other than a broker-dealer who purchased Outstanding Notes
exchanged for such New Notes directly from the Company to resell pursuant to
Rule 144A or any other available exemption under the Securities Act of 1933, as
amended (the "Securities Act"), and any such holder that is an "affiliate" of
the Company within the meaning of Rule 405 under the Securities Act), without
compliance with the registration and prospectus delivery provisions of the
Securities Act, provided that such New Notes are acquired in the ordinary
course of such holders' business and such holders are not participating in, and
have no arrangement with any person to participate in, the distribution of such
New Notes.

   5.  Unless the box under the heading "Special Registration Instructions" is
checked, the undersigned hereby represents and warrants that:

      a. the New Notes acquired pursuant to the Exchange Offer are being
   obtained in the ordinary course of business of the undersigned, whether or
   not the undersigned is the holder;

      b. neither the undersigned nor any such other person is engaging in or
   intends to engage in a distribution of such New Notes;

      c. neither the undersigned nor any such other person has an arrangement
   or understanding with any person to participate in the distribution of such
   New Notes; and

      d. neither the holder nor any such other person is an "affiliate," as
   such term is defined under Rule 405 promulgated under the Securities Act, of
   the Company.

   6.  The undersigned may, if unable to make all of the representations and
warranties contained in Item 5 above and as otherwise permitted in the
Registration Rights Agreement (as defined below), elect to have its Outstanding
Notes registered in the shelf registration statement described in the
Registration Rights Agreement, dated as of February 8, 2002 (the "Registration
Rights Agreement"), by and among the Company and the Initial Purchasers (as
defined therein). Such election may be made by checking the box below entitled
"Special Registration Instructions." By making such election, the undersigned
agrees, as a holder of Outstanding Notes participating in a shelf registration,
to indemnify and hold harmless the Company and its affiliates, their respective
officers, directors, employees, representatives and agents and each person who
controls the Company within the meaning of either the Securities Act or the
Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the "Exchange Act"), from and
against any and all losses, claims, damages or liabilities caused by any untrue
statement or

                                      3


<PAGE>

alleged untrue statement of a material fact contained in any shelf registration
statement or prospectus, or in any supplement thereto or amendment thereof, or
caused by the omission or alleged omission to state therein a material fact
required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements therein, in
the light of the circumstances under which they were made, not misleading; but
only with respect to information relating to the undersigned furnished in
writing by or on behalf of the undersigned expressly for use in a shelf
registration statement, a prospectus or any amendments or supplements thereto.
Any such indemnification shall be governed by the terms and subject to the
conditions set forth in the Registration Rights Agreement, including, without
limitation, the provisions regarding notice, retention of counsel, contribution
and payment of expenses set forth therein. The above summary of the
indemnification provision of the Registration Rights Agreement is not intended
to be exhaustive and is qualified in its entirety by the Registration Rights
Agreement.

   7.  If the undersigned is a broker-dealer that will receive New Notes for
its own account in exchange for Outstanding Notes that were acquired as a
result of market-making activities or other trading activities, it acknowledges
that it will deliver a prospectus in connection with any resale of such New
Notes; however, by so acknowledging and by delivering a prospectus, the
undersigned will not be deemed to admit that it is an "underwriter" within the
meaning of the Securities Act. If the undersigned is a broker-dealer and
Outstanding Notes held for its own account were not acquired as a result of
market-making or other trading activities, such Outstanding Notes cannot be
exchanged pursuant to the Exchange Offer.

   8.  Any obligation of the undersigned hereunder shall be binding upon the
successors, assigns, executors, administrators, trustees in bankruptcy and
legal and personal representatives of the undersigned.

   9.  Unless otherwise indicated herein under "Special Delivery Instructions,"
please issue the certificates for the New Notes in the name of the undersigned.

                                 INSTRUCTIONS
        FORMING PART OF THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THE EXCHANGE OFFER

1.  Delivery of This Letter of Transmittal and Outstanding Notes or Book-Entry
Confirmations.

   All physically delivered Outstanding Notes or any confirmation of a
book-entry transfer to the Exchange Agent's account at the Book-Entry Transfer
Facility of Outstanding Notes tendered by book-entry transfer (a "Book-Entry

Letter of Transmittal or Agent's Message or facsimile hereof or thereof, and
any other documents required by this Letter of Transmittal, must be received by
the Exchange Agent at its address set forth herein prior to 5:00 p.m., New York
City time, on the Expiration Date.

   The method of delivery of the tendered Outstanding Notes, this Letter of
Transmittal and all other required documents to the Exchange Agent is at the
election and risk of the holder and, except as otherwise provided below, the
delivery will be deemed made only when actually received or confirmed by the
Exchange Agent. If such delivery is by mail, it is recommended that registered
mail, properly insured, with return receipt requested, be used. Instead of
delivery by mail, it is recommended that the holder use an overnight or hand
delivery service. In all cases, sufficient time should be allowed to assure
delivery to the Exchange Agent before the Expiration Date. No Letter of
Transmittal or Outstanding Notes should be sent to the Company.

2.  Guaranteed Delivery Procedures.

   Holders who wish to tender their Outstanding Notes and whose Outstanding
Notes are not immediately available or who cannot deliver their Outstanding
Notes, this Letter of Transmittal or any other documents required hereby to the
Exchange Agent prior to the Expiration Date, or who cannot complete the
procedure for book-entry transfer on a timely basis and deliver an Agent's
Message, must tender their Outstanding Notes according to the guaranteed
delivery procedures set forth in the Prospectus. Pursuant to such procedures, a
tender may be effected if the Exchange Agent has received at its office, on or
prior to the Expiration Date, a properly completed and duly executed Notice of
Guaranteed Delivery by facsimile transmission, mail or hand delivery or a
properly transmitted Agent's Message and Notice of Guaranteed Delivery from an
Eligible Institution (defined as a member firm of a registered national
securities exchange, a member of the National Association of Securities
Dealers, Inc., a commercial bank or trust company having an office or
correspondent in the United States, or an "eligible guarantor institution"
within the meaning of Rule 17Ad-15 under the Securities Exchange Act) setting
forth the name and address of the tendering holder, the name(s) in which the
Outstanding Notes are registered, the certificate number(s) and the principal
amount of the Outstanding Notes to be tendered, and stating that the tender is
being made thereby and guaranteeing that, within three New York Stock Exchange
trading days after the expiration date, such properly completed and executed
Letter of Transmittal or facsimile transmission thereof by the Eligible
Institution, such Outstanding Notes, in proper form for transfer (or a
confirmation of book-entry transfer of such Outstanding Notes into the Exchange
Agent's account at DTC), will be delivered by such Eligible Institution
together with any other required documents to the Exchange Agent. Unless
Outstanding Notes being tendered by the above-described method are deposited
with the Exchange Agent within the time period set forth above (accompanied or
preceded by a properly completed Letter of Transmittal and any other required
documents), the Company may, at its option, reject the tender.

   Any holder of Outstanding Notes who wishes to tender Outstanding Notes
pursuant to the guaranteed delivery procedures described above must ensure that
the Exchange Agent receives the Notice of Guaranteed Delivery prior to 5:00
p.m., New York City time, on the Expiration Date. Upon request of the Exchange
Agent, a Notice of Guaranteed Delivery will be sent to holders who wish to
tender their Outstanding Notes according to the guaranteed delivery procedures
set forth above. See "Exchange Offer--Guaranteed Delivery Procedures" section
of the Prospectus.

3.  Tender by Holder.

   Only a registered holder of Outstanding Notes may tender such Outstanding
Notes in the Exchange Offer. Any beneficial holder of Outstanding Notes who is
not the registered holder and who wishes to tender should arrange with the
registered holder to execute and deliver this Letter of Transmittal on his
behalf or must, prior to completing and executing

holder's name or obtain a properly completed bond power from the registered
holder.

   Tenders of Outstanding Notes will be accepted only in integral multiples of
$1,000. If less than the entire principal amount of any Outstanding Notes is
tendered, the tendering holder should fill in the principal amount tendered in
the third column of the box entitled "Description of Outstanding Notes
Tendered" above. The entire principal amount of Outstanding Notes delivered to
the Exchange Agent will be deemed to have been tendered unless otherwise
indicated. If the entire principal amount of all Outstanding Notes is not
tendered, then Outstanding Notes for the principal amount of Outstanding Notes
not tendered and New Notes issued in exchange for any Outstanding Notes
accepted will be sent to the holder at his or her registered address, unless a
different address is provided in the appropriate box on this Letter of
Transmittal, promptly after the Outstanding Notes are accepted for exchange.

5.  Signatures on this Letter of Transmittal; Bond Powers and Endorsements;
Guarantee of Signatures.

of Transmittal (or facsimile hereof) is signed by a participant in the
Book-Entry Transfer Facility, the signature must correspond with the name as it

powers, in each case signed as the name of the registered holder or holders
appears on the Outstanding Notes.

   If this Letter of Transmittal (or facsimile hereof) or any Outstanding Notes
or bond powers are signed by trustees, executors, administrators, guardians,
attorneys-in-fact, officers of corporations or others acting in a fiduciary or
representative capacity, such persons should so indicate when signing, and,
unless waived by the Company, evidence satisfactory to the Company of their
authority to act must be submitted with this Letter of Transmittal.

   Tax law requires that a holder of any Outstanding Notes that are accepted
for exchange must provide the Company (as payor) with its correct taxpayer
identification number ("TIN"), which, in the case of a holder who is an
individual is his or her social security number. If the Company is not provided
with the correct TIN, the holder may be subject to a $50 penalty imposed by
Internal Revenue Service. (If withholding results in an overpayment of taxes, a
refund may be obtained). Certain holders (including, among others, all
corporations and certain foreign individuals) are not subject to these backup
withholding and reporting requirements. See the enclosed "Guidelines for
Certification of Taxpayer Identification Number on Substitute Form W-9" for
additional instructions.

   To prevent backup withholding, each tendering holder must provide such
holder's correct TIN by completing the Substitute Form W-9 set forth herein,
certifying that the TIN provided is correct (or that such holder is awaiting a
TIN), and that (i) the holder has not been notified by the Internal Revenue
Service that such holder is subject to backup withholding as a result of
failure to report all interest or dividends or (ii) the Internal Revenue
Service has notified the holder that such holder is no longer subject to backup
withholding. If the Outstanding Notes are registered in more than one name or
are not in the name of the actual owner, see the enclosed "Guidelines for
Certification of Taxpayer Identification Number of Substitute Form W-9" for
information on which TIN to report.

   The Company reserves the right in its sole discretion to take whatever steps
necessary to comply with the Company's obligations regarding backup withholding.

7.  Validity of Tenders.

   All questions as to the validity, form, eligibility (including time of
receipt), acceptance, and withdrawal of tendered Outstanding Notes will be
determined by the Company, in its sole discretion, which determination will be
final and binding. The Company reserves the absolute right to reject any or all
tenders not in proper form or the acceptance for exchange of which may, in the
opinion of counsel for the Company, be unlawful. The Company also reserves the
absolute right to waive any of the conditions of the Exchange Offer or any
defect or irregularity in the tender of any Outstanding Notes. The Company's
interpretation of the terms and conditions of the Exchange Offer (including the
instructions on the Letter of Transmittal) will be final and binding on all
parties. Unless waived, any defects or irregularities in connection with
tenders of Outstanding Notes must be cured within such time as the Company
shall determine. Although the Company intends to notify holders of defects or
irregularities with respect to tenders of Outstanding Notes, neither the
Company, the Exchange Agent, nor any other person shall be under any duty to
give notification of any defects or irregularities in tenders or incur any
liability for failure to give such notification. Tenders of Outstanding Notes
will not be deemed to have been made until such defects or irregularities have
been cured or waived. Any Outstanding Notes received by the Exchange Agent that
are not properly tendered and as to which the defects or irregularities have
not been cured or waived will be returned by the Exchange Agent to the
tendering holders, unless otherwise provided in the Letter of Transmittal, as
soon as practicable following the Expiration Date.

8.  Waiver of Conditions.

   The Company reserves the absolute right to waive, in whole or part, any of
the conditions to the Exchange Offer set forth in the Prospectus or in this
Letter of Transmittal.

9.  No Conditional Tender.

   No alternative, conditional, irregular or contingent tender of Outstanding
Notes on transmittal of this Letter of Transmittal will be accepted.

10.  Mutilated, Lost, Stolen or Destroyed Outstanding Notes.

   Any holder whose Outstanding Notes have been mutilated, lost, stolen or
destroyed should contact the Exchange Agent at the address indicated above for
further instructions.

identification number is your individual taxpayer identification number

<PAGE>

 GUIDELINES FOR CERTIFICATION OF TAXPAYER IDENTIFICATION NUMBER ON SUBSTITUTE
                                FORM W-9-Page 2
Obtaining a Number.--

   If you do not have a taxpayer identification number, obtain Form SS-5,
Application for a Social Security Number Card (for individuals), or Form SS-4,
Application for Employer Identification Number (for businesses and all other
entities), at the local office of the Social Security Administration or the
Internal Revenue Service (the "IRS") and apply for a number. Resident alien
individuals who are not eligible to get a Social Security number and need an
ITIN should obtain Form W-7, Application for Individual Taxpayer Identification
Number, from the IRS.

Payees and Payments Exempt from Backup Withholding.--

   The following is a list of payees exempt from backup withholding and for
which no information reporting is required. For interest and dividends, all
listed payees are exempt except the payee in item (9). For broker transactions,
payees listed in items (1) through (13) and a person registered under the
Investment Advisers Act of 1940 who regularly acts as a broker are exempt.
Payments subject to reporting under sections 6041 and 6041A are generally
exempt from backup withholding only if made to payees described in items (1)
through (7). Unless otherwise indicated, all "section" references are to
sections of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the "Code").

   List of Exempt Payees: (1) A corporation. (2) An organization exempt from
tax under section 501(a), or an IRA, or a custodial account under section
403(b)(7) if the account satisfies the requirements of section 401(f)(2). (3)
The United States or any of its agencies or instrumentalities. (4) A state, the
District of Columbia, a possession of the United States, or any of their
political subdivisions or instrumentalities. (5) A foreign government or any of
its political subdivisions, agencies or instrumentalities. (6) An international
organization or any of its agencies or instrumentalities. (7) A foreign central
bank of issue. (8) A dealer in securities or commodities required to register
in the United States, the District of Columbia, or a possession of the United
States. (9) A futures commission merchant registered with the Commodity Futures
Trading Commission. (10) A real estate investment trust. (11) An entity
registered at all times during the tax year under the Investment Company Act of
1940. (12) A common trust fund operated by a bank under section 584(a). (13) A
financial institution. (14) A middleman known in the investment community as a
nominee or custodian. (15) A trust exempt from tax under section 664 or
described in section 4947.

   Payments of dividends and patronage dividends not generally subject to
backup withholding include the following: Payments to nonresident aliens
subject to withholding under section 1441. Payments to partnerships not engaged
in a trade or business in the U.S. and which have at least one nonresident
partner. Payments of patronage dividends where the amount received is not paid
in money. Payments made by certain foreign organizations. Section 404(k)
distributions made by an ESOP.

   Payments of interest not generally subject to backup withholding include the
following: Payments of interest on obligations issued by individuals. Note: You
may be subject to backup withholding if this interest is $600 or more and is
paid in the course of your trade or business and you have not provided your
correct taxpayer identification number to the payer. Payments of tax-exempt
interest (including exempt-interest dividends under section 852). Payments
described in section 6049(b)(5) to non-resident aliens. Payments on tax-free
covenant bonds under section 1451. Payments made by certain foreign
organizations. Payments of mortgage or student loan interest to you.

   Exempt payees described above should file Substitute Form W-9 to avoid
possible erroneous backup withholding. FILE THIS FORM WITH THE PAYER; FURNISH
YOUR TAXPAYER IDENTIFICATION NUMBER; WRITE "EXEMPT" ON THE FACE OF THE FORM,
SIGN AND DATE THE FORM AND RETURN IT TO THE PAYER. IF YOU ARE A NON-RESIDENT
ALIEN OR A FOREIGN ENTITY NOT SUBJECT TO BACKUP WITHHOLDING, FILE WITH PAYER
THE APPROPRIATE COMPLETED INTERNAL REVENUE SERVICE FORM W-8.

   Certain payments other than interest, dividends and patronage dividends,
that are not subject to information reporting are also not subject to backup
withholding. For details, see Sections 6041, 6041A, 6042, 6044, 6045, 6049,
6050A and 6050N of the Code and the Treasury regulations promulgated thereunder.

   Privacy Act Notice--Section 6109 requires most recipients of dividend,
interest, or other payments to give their correct taxpayer identification
numbers to payers who must report the payments to the IRS. The IRS uses the
numbers for identification purposes and to verify the accuracy of tax returns.
The IRS also may provide this information to the Department of Justice for
civil and criminal litigation and to cities, states, and the District of
Columbia to carry out their tax laws. Payers must be given the numbers whether
or not recipients are required to file tax returns. Payers must generally
withhold tax from payments of taxable interest, dividend, and certain other
payments to a payee who does not furnish a taxpayer identification number to a
payer. The current rate of such withholding tax is 30%. Certain penalties may
also apply.

Penalties

(1)Penalty for Failure to Furnish Taxpayer Identification Number--If you fail
   to furnish your correct taxpayer identification number to a payer, you are
   subject to a penalty of $50 for each such failure unless your failure is due
   to reasonable cause and not to willful neglect.

(2)Civil Penalty for False Information With Respect to Withholding--If you make
   a false statement with no reasonable basis which results in no imposition of
   backup withholding, you are subject to a penalty of $500.

(3)Criminal Penalty for Falsifying Information--Willfully falsifying
   certifications or affirmations may subject you to criminal penalties
   including fines and/or imprisonment.

   FOR ADDITIONAL INFORMATION CONTACT YOUR TAX CONSULTANT OR THE INTERNAL
REVENUE SERVICE.
