"2013 was another record earnings year for our Partnership," said Michael J. Hennigan, president and chief executive officer. "In addition, our organic growth capital reached new highs as we commenced operations on three major growth projects and successfully developed four additional major organic expansion projects that will position us to continue increasing ratable, fee-based cash flows for 2014 and beyond."

Speaking on the record earnings in 2013, Hennigan said, "Our ratable, fee-based cash flows grew approximately 20 percent versus 2012. The growth was driven by the start-up of three major projects combined with our ongoing organic program to expand services at our existing assets, such as our Nederland terminal on the Gulf Coast."
