EL PASO, Texas, May 26, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Western Refining Logistics, LP ("WNRL") today announced that it has filed a universal shelf registration statement on Form S-3 with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC"). While WNRL has no immediate plans to issue securities under the registration statement, the registration statement is intended to provide the Company with flexibility to access the public capital markets in order to respond to business opportunities as they arise. Although the registration statement has been filed with the SEC, it has not yet become effective.

If and when the registration statement is declared effective by the SEC, WNRL will be able to offer and sell, from time to time, up to $1 billion of securities of the issuer, including debt securities and common units.

Following the effectiveness of the shelf registration statement, WNRL may periodically offer one or more of the registered securities in amounts, at prices, and on terms to be announced when, and if, the securities are offered. The terms of any securities offered under the registration statement, and the intended use of the net proceeds resulting therefrom, will be established at the times of the offerings and will be described in prospectus supplements filed with the SEC at the times of the offerings.

A registration statement relating to these securities has been filed with the SEC but has not yet become effective. These securities may not be sold, nor may offers to buy be accepted, prior to the time the registration statement becomes effective. This press release is not an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy, nor shall there be any sale of securities in any state or jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such state or jurisdiction.

A copy of the shelf registration statement on Form S-3 and copies of the prospectus supplements relating to any offerings under the registration statement, when available, can be obtained by contacting:
