Holly Energy Partners, L.P. Reports Third Quarter Results

11/07/2022
  • Reported net income attributable to HEP of $42.0 million or $0.33 per unit
  • Announced quarterly distribution of $0.35 per unit
  • Reported EBITDA of $66.0 million and Adjusted EBITDA of $110.1 million

DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Holly Energy Partners, L.P. ("HEP" or the "Partnership") (NYSE: HEP) today reported financial results for the third quarter of 2022. Net income attributable to HEP for the third quarter of 2022 was $42.0 million ($0.33 per basic and diluted limited partner unit), compared to $49.2 million ($0.46 per basic and diluted limited partner unit) for the third quarter of 2021.

Results for the third quarter of 2022 reflect the impact to our equity in earnings of equity method investments of HEP’s 50% share of incurred and estimated environmental remediation and recovery expenses, net of insurance proceeds received to date, associated with a release of crude oil on the Osage Pipe Line Company, LLC ("Osage") pipeline of $20.3 million. Excluding this impact, net income attributable to HEP for the third quarter of 2022 was $62.2 million ($0.49 per basic and diluted limited partner unit). The increase in net income attributable to HEP was mainly due to net income from Sinclair Transportation Company LLC ("Sinclair Transportation"), which was acquired on March 14, 2022, partially offset by higher interest expense and higher operating costs and expenses.

Distributable cash flow was $78.7 million for the third quarter of 2022, an increase of $11.9 million, or 17.8%, compared to the third quarter of 2021. The increase was mainly due to distributable cash flow related to Sinclair Transportation, partially offset by higher interest expense. HEP declared a quarterly cash distribution of $0.35 per unit on October 20, 2022.

Commenting on our 2022 third quarter results, Michael Jennings, Chief Executive Officer and President, stated, “HEP generated solid results during the quarter, supported by strong volumes in both our crude and refined product transportation and storage systems. We announced a quarterly distribution of $0.35 per unit and remain committed to our capital allocation strategy.”

“Looking forward, we expect strong performance across our portfolio, driven by seasonally high refinery utilization rates.”

Third Quarter 2022 Revenue Highlights

Revenues for the third quarter of 2022 were $149.0 million, an increase of $26.4 million compared to the third quarter of 2021. The increase was mainly due to revenues on our recently acquired Sinclair Transportation assets, higher revenues on our refinery processing units and rate increases that went into effect on July 1, 2022.

  • Revenues from our refined product pipelines were $31.4 million, an increase of $3.9 million compared to the third quarter of 2021. Shipments averaged 205.7 thousand barrels per day ("mbpd") compared to 162.3 mbpd for the third quarter of 2021. The revenue and volume increases were mainly due to higher volumes on our recently acquired Sinclair Transportation product pipelines, higher volumes on our UNEV pipeline and rate increases that went into effect on July 1, 2022. Revenues did not increase in proportion to volumes due to our recognition of a significant portion of the Sinclair Transportation refined product pipeline tariffs as interest income under sales-type lease accounting.
  • Revenues from our intermediate pipelines were $8.0 million, an increase of $0.5 million compared to the third quarter of 2021. Shipments averaged 137.0 mbpd for the third quarter of 2022 compared to 136.4 mbpd for the third quarter of 2021. The increase in revenue was mainly due to rate increases that went into effect on July 1, 2022.
  • Revenues from our crude pipelines were $37.7 million, an increase of $5.4 million compared to the third quarter of 2021. Shipments averaged 639.0 mbpd compared to 408.0 mbpd for the third quarter of 2021. The increase in volumes was mainly attributable to our Cushing Connect pipeline, which went into service in September 2021, volumes on our recently acquired Sinclair Transportation crude pipelines and higher volumes on our crude pipeline systems in New Mexico and Texas. The increase in revenues was mainly due to our recently acquired Sinclair Transportation crude pipelines, higher volumes on our crude pipeline systems in New Mexico and Texas and rate increases that went into effect on July 1, 2022. Revenues did not increase in proportion to volumes due to our recognition of most of the Cushing Connect pipeline tariffs and a significant portion of Sinclair Transportation crude pipeline tariffs as interest income under sales-type lease accounting.
  • Revenues from terminal, tankage and loading rack fees were $44.4 million, an increase of $11.1 million compared to the third quarter of 2021. Refined products and crude oil terminalled in the facilities averaged 620.9 mbpd compared to 472.2 mbpd for the third quarter of 2021. The increase in volumes was mainly due to our recently acquired Sinclair Transportation assets. Revenues increased mainly due to revenues on our recently acquired Sinclair Transportation assets and rate increases that went into effect on July 1, 2022.
  • Revenues from refinery processing units were $27.4 million, an increase of $5.5 million compared to the third quarter of 2021, and throughputs averaged 72.1 mbpd compared to 72.3 mbpd for the third quarter of 2021. Revenues increased mainly due to higher natural gas cost recoveries in revenues, higher throughput at our Woods Cross refinery processing units and rate increases that went into effect on July 1, 2022.

Nine Months Ended September 30, 2022 Revenue Highlights

Revenues for the nine months ended September 30, 2022, were $405.0 million, an increase of $29.0 million compared to the nine months ended September 30, 2021. The increase was mainly attributable to revenues on our recently acquired Sinclair Transportation assets and increased revenues from our UNEV assets, partially offset by lower revenues on our Cheyenne assets as a result of the conversion of HF Sinclair's Cheyenne refinery to renewable diesel production and lower revenues on our product pipelines servicing HF Sinclair's Navajo refinery. The nine months ended September 30, 2021 included the recognition of the $10 million termination fee related to the termination of HF Sinclair's minimum volume commitment on our Cheyenne assets.

  • Revenues from our refined product pipelines were $83.7 million, a decrease of $1.0 million compared to the nine months ended September 30, 2021. Shipments averaged 180.3 mbpd compared to 165.8 mbpd for the nine months ended September 30, 2021. The volume increase was mainly due to volumes on our recently acquired Sinclair Transportation assets and higher volumes on our UNEV pipeline, partially offset by lower volumes on our product pipelines servicing HF Sinclair's Navajo refinery due to lower throughput at the refinery. We recognized a significant portion of the Sinclair Transportation refined product pipeline tariffs as interest income under sales-type lease accounting.
  • Revenues from our intermediate pipelines were $23.0 million, an increase of $0.5 million compared to the nine months ended September 30, 2021. Shipments averaged 126.6 mbpd compared to 131.9 mbpd for the nine months ended September 30, 2021. The decrease in volumes was mainly due to lower throughputs on our intermediate pipelines servicing HF Sinclair's Navajo refinery while revenue increased due to contractual minimum volume guarantees and rate increases that went into effect on July 1, 2022.
  • Revenues from our crude pipelines were $103.6 million, an increase of $8.6 million compared to the nine months ended September 30, 2021. Shipments averaged 594.2 mbpd compared to 393.0 mbpd for the nine months ended September 30, 2021. The increase in volumes was mainly attributable to our Cushing Connect pipeline, which went into service in September 2021, volumes on our recently acquired Sinclair Transportation crude pipelines and higher volumes on our crude pipeline systems in New Mexico and Texas. The increase in revenues was mainly due to our recently acquired Sinclair Transportation crude pipelines and higher volumes on our crude pipelines in New Mexico and Texas. Revenues did not increase in proportion to volumes due to our recognition of most of the Cushing Connect pipeline tariffs and a significant portion of Sinclair Transportation crude pipeline tariffs as interest income under sales-type lease accounting.
  • Revenues from terminal, tankage and loading rack fees were $126.0 million, an increase of $17.6 million compared to the nine months ended September 30, 2021. Refined products and crude oil terminalled in the facilities averaged 575.2 mbpd compared to 436.9 mbpd for the nine months ended September 30, 2021. Volumes increased mainly due to volumes on our recently acquired Sinclair Transportation assets and higher throughputs at HF Sinclair's Tulsa refinery. Revenues increased mainly due to revenues on our recently acquired Sinclair Transportation assets, higher butane blending revenues, and higher revenues on our Tulsa assets. In addition, the nine months ended September 30, 2021 included the recognition of the $10 million termination fee related to the termination of HF Sinclair's minimum volume commitment on our Cheyenne assets as a result of the conversion of the HF Sinclair Cheyenne refinery to renewable diesel production.
  • Revenues from refinery processing units were $68.7 million, an increase of $3.3 million compared to the nine months ended September 30, 2021. Throughputs averaged 69.9 mbpd for both the nine months ended September 30, 2021 and 2022. Revenues increased mainly due to higher natural gas cost recoveries in revenues as well as rate increases that went into effect on July 1, 2022.

Operating Costs and Expenses Highlights

Operating costs and expenses were $89.5 million and $244.1 million for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2022, representing increases of $21.0 million and $25.3 million from the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021. The increases were mainly due to operating costs and expenses associated with our recently acquired Sinclair Transportation assets as well as higher employee costs, natural gas costs, maintenance costs and materials and supplies costs, partially offset by lower rentals and leases. In addition, the nine months ended September 30, 2021 included a goodwill impairment charge of $11.0 million related to our Cheyenne reporting unit.

Interest Expense and Interest Income Highlights

Interest expense was $23.0 million and $57.0 million for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2022, representing increases of $9.5 million and $16.4 million from the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021. The increases were mainly due to our April 2022 issuance of $400 million in aggregate principal amount of 6.375% senior unsecured notes maturing in April 2027 related to the funding of the cash portion of the Sinclair Transportation acquisition. In addition, market interest rates increased on our senior secured revolving credit facility.

Interest income for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2022, totaled $24.2 million and $61.2 million, representing increases of $17.4 million and $41.2 million compared to the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021. The increases were mainly due to higher sales-type lease interest income from our recently acquired Sinclair Transportation pipelines and terminals and our Cushing Connect pipeline, which was placed into service at the end of the third quarter of 2021.

Equity in Earnings of Equity Method Investments Highlights

Equity in earnings of equity method investments were losses of $16.3 million and $7.3 million for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2022, representing decreases of $20.0 million and $16.1 million compared to the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021. The decreases were mainly due to lower earnings from our equity method investment in Osage due to HEP’s 50% share of incurred and estimated environmental remediation and recovery expenses, net of insurance proceeds received to date, associated with a release of crude oil that occurred in the third quarter of 2022. Additional insurance recoveries will be recorded as they are received. Our share of the remaining insurance coverage is $12.5 million. The pipeline resumed operations in the third quarter of 2022 and remediation efforts are underway. The decrease in Osage was partially offset by equity in earnings from Pioneer Investments Corp., which was acquired as part of our Sinclair Transportation acquisition.

Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (“EBITDA”) is calculated as net income attributable to Holly Energy Partners, L.P. ("Holly Energy Partners") plus (i) interest expense, net of interest income, (ii) state income tax expense and (iii) depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA is calculated as EBITDA plus (i) goodwill impairment, (ii) acquisition integration and regulatory costs, (iii) our share of Osage environmental remediation expenses included in equity in earnings of equity method investments and (iv) tariffs and fees not included in revenues due to impacts from lease accounting for certain tariffs and fees minus (v) gain on sales-type leases, (vi) gain on significant asset sales and (vii) pipeline lease payments not included in operating costs and expenses. Portions of our minimum guaranteed pipeline and terminal tariffs and fees for assets subject to sales-type lease accounting are recorded as interest income with the remaining amounts recorded as a reduction in net investment in leases. Similarly, certain pipeline lease payments were previously recorded as operating costs and expenses, but the underlying lease was reclassified from an operating lease to a financing lease, and these payments are now recorded as interest expense and reductions in the lease liability. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are not calculations based upon generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"). However, the amounts included in the EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA calculations are derived from amounts included in our consolidated financial statements. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as alternatives to net income attributable to Holly Energy Partners or operating income, as indications of our operating performance or as alternatives to operating cash flow as a measure of liquidity. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are not necessarily comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are presented here because they are widely used financial indicators used by investors and analysts to measure performance. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are also used by our management for internal analysis and as a basis for compliance with financial covenants.

Set forth below is our calculation of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA.

Distributable cash flow is not a calculation based upon GAAP. However, the amounts included in the calculation are derived from amounts presented in our consolidated financial statements, with the general exception of maintenance capital expenditures. Distributable cash flow should not be considered in isolation or as an alternative to net income attributable to Holly Energy Partners or operating income, as an indication of our operating performance, or as an alternative to operating cash flow as a measure of liquidity. Distributable cash flow is not necessarily comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies. Distributable cash flow is presented here because it is a widely accepted financial indicator used by investors to compare partnership performance. It is also used by management for internal analysis and our performance units. We believe that this measure provides investors an enhanced perspective of the operating performance of our assets and the cash our business is generating.

Set forth below is our calculation of distributable cash flow.
