Completes Sale of Eastern U.S. Terminals; Proceeds Improve Leverage with Year-end Debt-to-EBITDA Ratio Target Below 4.0 Times

Expects to Self-fund all Spending from Internally Generated Cash Flows for 2021, 2022 and Beyond

Reports Comparable Quarter-Over-Quarter Results

Refined Product Systems Maintain 105 Percent of Pre-Pandemic Run Rate

Permian Crude System Volumes Hit Record-Breaking Average of 502,000 Barrels Per Day/On Track to Exit 2021 at Around 514,000 Barrels Per Day

2021 Full-Year Outlook Higher Than Previous Expectations

Sustainability Report Released

SAN ANTONIO, November 04, 2021--(BUSINESS WIRE)--NuStar Energy L.P. (NYSE: NS) today announced solid third quarter of 2021 results fueled by strong throughputs on its refined products and crude oil pipelines.

"In the third quarter, we completed the $250 million sale of our Eastern U.S. terminal facilities to Sunoco LP, which made it possible for us to execute on our plan to optimize our business and strengthen our balance sheet by deploying the sales proceeds to lower our leverage and focus 100 percent of our resources on our core asset footprint. As a result, we are now targeting a year-end debt metric below 4.0 times. We also continue to expect to self-fund all of our spending from our internally generated cash flows in 2021, 2022 and beyond," said NuStar President and CEO Brad Barron.

"We are pleased to see the pieces of our plan coming into place and our ongoing core business performing solidly with a comparable, and in some cases, better quarter-over-quarter performance, despite the lingering effects of the pandemic on the global economy and the non-cash charges associated with the asset sale."

Barron noted the quarter’s results include a $130 million non-cash charge related to the sale of its Eastern U.S. terminal assets and a $59 million non-cash impairment charge on a portion of NuStar’s Houston 12-inch pipeline, as well as a $9 million cash gain from insurance proceeds to rebuild tanks at its Selby terminal. As a result of the non-cash charges, NuStar reported a net loss of $125 million for the third quarter of 2021, or $1.48 net loss per unit, compared to a net loss of $97 million, or a $1.22 net loss per unit, for the third quarter of 2020, which was negatively impacted by a pandemic-related non-operational charge.

Excluding the effects of the non-cash charges, adjusted net income was $55 million for the third quarter of 2021, or $0.16 per unit, compared to adjusted net income of $45 million, or $0.08 per unit, for the third quarter of 2020.

Adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) were $177 million for the third quarter of 2021, comparable to the third quarter of 2020 adjusted EBITDA of $180 million and up five percent over the pre-pandemic third quarter of 2019.

Distributable cash flow (DCF) available to common limited partners was $92 million for the third quarter of 2021, up $8 million, or 10 percent, compared to $84 million of adjusted DCF in the third quarter of 2020. The distribution coverage ratio to common limited partners was 2.10 times for the third quarter of 2021 and 2.05 times for the nine months ended September 30, 2021.

"We are pleased with the strong, stable results our business generated in the third quarter, as the world has continued to bounce back from the pandemic. And we are expecting our full-year 2021 results to demonstrate, once again, the strength and resilience of our assets, our employees and our business," said Barron.

Refined Product Demand Maintains Resilience with 105 Percent of Pre-Pandemic Run Rate

"In the third quarter, we continued to see solid, steady refined product demand in the markets we serve, maintaining a strong 105 percent of pre-pandemic demand, which is on pace with the second quarter of this year," said Barron. "Our third quarter refined product throughputs were up 16 percent over the third quarter of 2020 and up eight percent over the pre-pandemic third quarter of 2019.

"We continue to expect our refined products systems to perform at or above 100 percent of our pre-pandemic run-rate for the remainder of 2021."

Permian Crude System Hits Record-Breaking Volumes

Barron continued, "Steady recovery in refined product demand has also continued to stoke a rebound in U.S. refiners’ demand for crude, which has contributed to higher throughputs for our crude pipelines in the third quarter, which are up 11 percent over the second quarter of 2021 and the third quarter of 2020.

"Thanks once again to our Permian Crude System’s premier ‘core of the core’ location, lowest producer costs and highest product quality, we have seen strong volume improvement. In the third quarter, our Permian system’s volumes grew to a record-breaking average of 502,000 barrels per day, up 12 percent over the second quarter of 2021; up 19 percent over the third quarter of 2020; and up 11 percent over the peak first quarter 2020 pre-COVID quarterly average.

"We are now forecasting we will exit 2021 at around 514,000 barrels per day, which is up from the 500,000 barrels per day we forecasted in the second quarter. Looking back to the beginning of 2021, we are even more encouraged by the fact that our Permian system is up an impressive nine percent from the 470,000 barrels per day we expected back in February."

West Coast Renewable Fuels Network Continues to Handle Impressive Share of California’s Market

Barron also reiterated the importance of NuStar’s West Coast Renewable Fuels Network, which plays an integral role in facilitating the low-carbon renewable fuels that significantly reduce emissions from transportation.

"NuStar currently handles an impressive share of California’s renewable fuels. According to the latest available data from the state of California, for the second quarter of 2021 NuStar handled about seven percent of California’s total biodiesel volumes; over 20 percent of the state’s ethanol; and close to 30 percent of its renewable diesel volumes, which does not yet include the growing proportion of renewable jet fuel volumes that we handle in the region.

"We expect NuStar’s leadership in the low-carbon fuel transition, in California and across the West Coast, to continue to grow as we complete our planned tank conversion projects, and we plan to continue to develop projects to expand our renewable fuel logistics services as low-carbon fuel legislative mandates proliferate and customer demand increases," said Barron.

Exciting Opportunities for Utilization of Ammonia System

Barron mentioned that throughput on NuStar’s Ammonia System was up 39 percent over the third quarter of 2020. Barron said NuStar is working to increase its Ammonia System’s utilization even more through low-spend, high-return projects to connect and extend the system to new and current customers.

"These projects would supply ammonia for current applications, like the fertilizer that augments U.S. food production, as well as corn for ethanol production, across the Midwest, as well as provide safe, efficient transportation for hydrogen to power fuel-cell vehicles.

"We look forward to providing more details on these projects to increase our Ammonia System’s utilization and profitability at multiple locations on our 2,000-mile system," Barron added.

2021 Full-Year Outlook

NuStar CFO Tom Shoaf said after taking into account the Eastern U.S. terminals sale, NuStar expects its 2021 adjusted EBITDA to be in the range of $685 to $715 million, which is slightly higher than previous expectations.

"We also expect to spend $140 to $160 million on strategic capital and $35 to $45 million on reliability capital in 2021.

"Based on these projections, we continue to target our year-end debt-to-EBITDA ratio to be below 4.0 times. And we will be achieving these solid results while generating internal cash flows to meet all of our spending needs," said Shoaf.

Sustainability Report Released

Barron closed by discussing NuStar’s newly posted sustainability report, which can be found on the company’s website.

"You will see in our recently posted sustainability report that our record demonstrates our commitment to sustainability.

"While traditional sources of energy, like the petroleum products we transport and store, will continue to be an important part of our energy supply, both in the U.S. and across the globe, for many decades to come, we are working to assure NuStar is instrumental in emerging energy opportunities that lower emissions and generate solid returns," said Barron.

NuStar Energy L.P. and Subsidiaries
Consolidated Financial Information - Continued
(Unaudited, Thousands of Dollars, Except Ratio Data)

Note 1: NuStar Energy L.P. utilizes financial measures, such as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA), distributable cash flow (DCF) and distribution coverage ratio, which are not defined in U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). Management believes these financial measures provide useful information to investors and other external users of our financial information because (i) they provide additional information about the operating performance of the partnership’s assets and the cash the business is generating, (ii) investors and other external users of our financial statements benefit from having access to the same financial measures being utilized by management and our board of directors when making financial, operational, compensation and planning decisions and (iii) they highlight the impact of significant transactions. We may also adjust these measures to enhance the comparability of our performance across periods.

Our board of directors and management use EBITDA and/or DCF when assessing the following: (i) the performance of our assets, (ii) the viability of potential projects, (iii) our ability to fund distributions, (iv) our ability to fund capital expenditures and (v) our ability to service debt. In addition, our board of directors uses EBITDA, DCF and a distribution coverage ratio, which is calculated based on DCF, as some of the factors in its compensation determinations. DCF is a financial indicator used by the master limited partnership (MLP) investment community to compare partnership performance. DCF is used by the MLP investment community, in part, because the value of a partnership unit is partially based on its yield, and its yield is based on the cash distributions a partnership can pay its unitholders.

None of these financial measures are presented as an alternative to net income (loss). They should not be considered in isolation or as substitutes for a measure of performance prepared in accordance with GAAP.

Included in the tables below are the following items: In the the third quarter of 2021, we recorded a non-cash asset impairment loss of $95.7 million and a non-cash goodwill impairment loss of $34.1 million associated with our Eastern U.S. Terminal Operations, which were sold in October 2021 and classified as held for sale as of September 30, 2021, a non-cash asset impairment loss of $59.2 million related to our Houston pipeline and a gain from insurance recoveries of $9.4 million related to damage caused by a fire in 2019 at our Selby terminal. In the second and third quarters of 2020, we recognized losses on extinguishment of debt of $3.8 million and $137.9 million, respectively, mainly related to the repayment of our $750.0 million unsecured term loan credit agreement on September 16, 2020. In the first quarter of 2020, we recorded a non-cash goodwill impairment loss of $225.0 million related to our crude oil pipelines reporting unit.

The following is a reconciliation of net loss to EBITDA, DCF and distribution coverage ratio.

(a)

We intend to satisfy the vestings of these equity-based awards with the issuance of our common units. As such, the expenses related to these awards are considered non-cash and added back to DCF. Certain awards include distribution equivalent rights (DERs). Payments made in connection with DERs are deducted from DCF.

(b)

Distribution coverage ratio is calculated by dividing DCF by distributions applicable to common limited partners.
