NuStar Energy Reports Earnings Results For Fourth Quarter And Full Year 2012

Stocks in this article: NS

Addressing the performance of the asphalt and fuels marketing segment, Anastasio went on to say, “Due to the third quarter 2012 sale of 50% of our asphalt operations and the January 1, 2013 sale of our San Antonio refinery, now reported as discontinued operations, the only operating results included in this segment in the fourth quarter of 2012 relate to our fuels marketing operations. The fuels marketing operations generated a profit during the fourth quarter and are expected to continue to generate a profit in the future.”

TexStar Acquisition Update

“Integration of the crude oil assets acquired from TexStar in December has gone well,” said Anastasio. “We plan to close on the acquisition of TexStar’s natural gas liquid (NGL) assets in the first quarter of 2013. The purchase price on these NGL assets is expected to be $100 million, and we plan to spend an additional $330 million of growth capital to fully integrate and complete construction of some of the assets that we acquired.”

2013 Outlook

Commenting on the earnings outlook for 2013, Anastasio said, “We expect the EBITDA results for all three of our segments to improve compared to last year. Our transportation segment should benefit from two Eagle Ford internal growth pipeline projects completed in 2012 and the crude oil assets acquired from TexStar. The storage segment is projected to continue to benefit from the April 2012 completion of a rail car offloading project at our St. James, Louisiana terminal and begin to benefit from the first quarter 2013 completion of a one million barrel expansion project at our St. Eustatius terminal as well as a seven hundred thousand barrel storage expansion at our St. James, Louisiana terminal.”

Anastasio went on to say, “We expect our asphalt and fuels marketing segment's 2013 results to improve compared to 2012, primarily due to higher earnings in the bunkering and heavy fuel oil businesses.”
