HOUSTON, Sept. 03, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Buckeye Partners, L.P. (“Buckeye”) (BPL) today reported that its initial preliminary assessments, subject to physical verification, have not identified any significant damage to its Buckeye Bahamas Hub (BBH) as a result of Hurricane Dorian. Buckeye will provide further updates after in-depth, on-the-ground inspections and assessments of the storm’s impact on BBH are completed in the coming days. As the hurricane moves away from Grand Bahama Island, Buckeye’s first priority is accounting for the safety of all employees and their families. Consistent with its efforts when Hurricane Matthew struck in 2016, Buckeye intends to work with its business partners, local first responders and governmental authorities to bring needed supplies to the island as soon as it is safe. The health and wellbeing of its local workforce, the communities where it operates and the Bahamian people are Buckeye’s top priority.
