HOLLY ENERGY PARTNERS, L.P. ANNOUNCES PRICING OF SENIOR NOTES DALLAS, TX Holly Energy Partners, L.P., (NYSE:HEP) today announced that it has priced an offering of $35 million principal amount of its 6.25% senior notes due 2015.

The senior notes have been offered as additional debt securities under the indenture pursuant to which, on February 28, 2005, Holly Energy issued $150 million principal amount of 6.25% senior notes due 2015. The new notes and the notes previously issued under the indenture will be treated as a single class of debt securities.

Holly Energy intends to use the proceeds of the offering to fund part of the cash portion of the $81.5 million consideration for Holly Energy’s previously announced pending acquisition, which is currently expected to close before the end of July, of certain intermediate pipelines from Holly Corporation, or for general partnership purposes if the acquisition is not completed.
