Global Partners LP Completes Acquisition of Four Liquid Energy Terminals from Gulf Oil

Global strengthens operations in the Northeast and continues to expand its terminal network

Global Partners LP (NYSE: GLP) (“Global” or the “Partnership”) announced today the successful closing of its acquisition of four liquid energy terminals from Gulf Oil Limited Partnership (“Gulf Oil”). The terminals are strategically located in Chelsea, MA, New Haven, CT, Linden, NJ, and Woodbury, NJ, and will further enhance Global’s position in the energy economy of the Northeast.

With a combined shell capacity of approximately 3.0 million barrels, these terminals expand Global’s ability to store and distribute gasoline, distillates, and ethanol. This acquisition aligns with Global’s strategy to acquire and invest in assets that allow the Partnership to leverage scale from its integrated network in high demand markets.

“This acquisition further delivers on our commitment to strategic growth and our ability to identify and capitalize on assets that leverage our growing network,” said Eric Slifka, Global’s President and Chief Executive Officer.

The new terminals are a key fit in Global’s network. Linden, NJ and Woodbury, NJ open new markets while New Haven, CT adds gasoline capabilities to Global’s terminal portfolio in Connecticut, and the Chelsea, MA terminal allows Global to continue to serve the Boston market as it replaces the capabilities of its Revere terminal, which Global strategically divested for $150 million in 2022.

Slifka continued, “We are happy to finalize this acquisition and welcome these terminals into our growing network. These assets will strengthen our existing operations and provide us with new opportunities to serve our customers and enhance our competitive advantage.”

Global purchased the four terminals for $212.3 million.

Forward-looking statements involve significant risks and uncertainties (some of which are beyond the Partnership’s control) including, without limitation, uncertainty around the timing of an economic recovery in the United States which will impact the demand for the products we sell and the services that we provide, and assumptions that could cause actual results to differ materially from the Partnership’s historical experience and present expectations or projections. We believe these assumptions are reasonable given currently available information. Our assumptions and future performance are subject to a wide range of business risks, uncertainties and factors, which are described in our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).
