Organization, Description of Business and Basis of Presentation
Organization
Unless indicated otherwise, the terms “our,” “we,” “us” and similar language refer to Magellan Midstream Partners, L.P. together with its subsidiaries. We are a Delaware limited partnership and our limited partner units are traded on the New York Stock Exchange under the ticker symbol “MMP.” Magellan GP, LLC, a wholly-owned Delaware limited liability company, serves as our general partner.

Description of Business

We are principally engaged in the transportation, storage and distribution of refined petroleum products and crude oil.  As of September 30, 2016, our asset portfolio, including the assets of our joint ventures, consisted of:

our refined products segment, comprised of our 9,700-mile refined products pipeline system with 53 terminals as well as 26 independent terminals not connected to our pipeline system and our 1,100-mile ammonia pipeline system;

our crude oil segment, comprised of approximately 2,100 miles of crude oil pipelines and storage facilities with an aggregate storage capacity of approximately 23 million barrels, of which approximately 15 million barrels are used for leased storage; and

our marine storage segment, consisting of five marine terminals located along coastal waterways with an aggregate storage capacity of approximately 26 million barrels.

Terminology common in our industry includes the following terms, which describe products that we transport, store and distribute through our pipelines and terminals:

refined products are the output from refineries and are primarily used as fuels by consumers. Refined products include gasoline, diesel fuel, aviation fuel, kerosene and heating oil.  Collectively, diesel fuel and heating oil are referred to as distillates;

liquefied petroleum gases, or LPGs, are produced as by-products of the crude oil refining process and in connection with natural gas production. LPGs include butane and propane;

blendstocks are blended with refined products to change or enhance their characteristics such as increasing a gasoline’s octane or oxygen content. Blendstocks include alkylates, oxygenates and natural gasoline;

heavy oils and feedstocks are used as burner fuels or feedstocks for further processing by refineries and petrochemical facilities. Heavy oils and feedstocks include No. 6 fuel oil and vacuum gas oil;

crude oil and condensate are used as feedstocks by refineries and petrochemical facilities;

biofuels, such as ethanol and biodiesel, are increasingly required by government mandates; and

ammonia is primarily used as a nitrogen fertilizer.

Except for ammonia, we use the term petroleum products to describe any, or a combination, of the above-noted products.

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (Continued)



Basis of Presentation

In the opinion of management, our accompanying consolidated financial statements which are unaudited, except for the consolidated balance sheet as of December 31, 2015, which is derived from our audited financial statements, include all normal and recurring adjustments necessary to present fairly our financial position as of September 30, 2016, the results of operations for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015 and 2016 and cash flows for the nine months ended September 30, 2015 and 2016. The results of operations for the nine months ended September 30, 2016 are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the full year ending December 31, 2016 for several reasons. Profits from our butane blending activities are realized largely during the first and fourth quarters of each year. Additionally, gasoline demand, which drives transportation volumes and revenues on our pipeline systems, generally trends higher during the summer driving months. Further, the volatility of commodity prices impacts the profits from our commodity activities and, to a lesser extent, the volume of petroleum products we transport on our pipelines.

Pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission, the financial statements in this report do not include all of the information and notes normally included with financial statements prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”). These financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2015.

Use of Estimates

The preparation of our consolidated financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities that exist at the date of our consolidated financial statements, as well as their impact on the reported amounts of revenue and expense during the reporting periods. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

New Accounting Pronouncements

In March 2016, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) 2016-09, Compensation - Stock Compensation (Topic 718): Improvements to Employee Share-Based Payment Accounting, which is part of the FASB’s initiative to simplify accounting standards. The guidance requires an entity to make an entity-wide accounting policy election to either estimate the number of awards that are expected to vest or account for forfeitures when they occur, and allows equity classification for awards where employees elect to withhold up to the maximum statutory tax rates in the applicable jurisdictions. The new standard also requires cash paid by employers when directly withholding shares for tax withholding purposes to be classified as a financing activity in the statement of cash flows.

We elected to early adopt ASU 2016-09 during the first quarter of 2016, and this adoption did not have a material impact on our consolidated financial statements. In conjunction with our adoption of this new accounting standard, we have elected to account for equity-based compensation forfeitures as they occur. Additionally, and consistent with our prior accounting policy, we continue to show cash paid when directly withholding shares for tax withholding purposes as a financing activity in our statements of cash flows.

In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842). This ASU requires lessees to recognize a right of use asset and lease liability on the balance sheet for all leases, with the exception of short-term leases. The new accounting model for lessors remains largely the same, although some changes have been made to align it with the new lessee model and the new revenue recognition guidance. This update also requires companies to include additional disclosures regarding their lessee and lessor agreements. Public companies are required to adopt the

MAGELLAN MIDSTREAM PARTNERS, L.P.
NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (Continued)



standard for financial reporting periods that start after December 15, 2018, although early adoption is permitted. We are currently in the process of evaluating the impact this new standard will have on our financial statements.

In May 2014, the FASB issued ASU 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers, which eliminates the industry-specific guidance in U.S. GAAP and produces a single, principles-based method for companies to report revenue in their financial statements. This standard requires companies to make more estimates and use more judgment than under current guidance. In addition, all companies must compile more extensive footnote disclosures about how the revenue numbers were derived. This ASU requires full retrospective, modified retrospective or use of the cumulative effect method during the period of adoption. In July 2015, the FASB extended the effective date of this standard from January 1, 2017 to January 1, 2018. We are currently in the process of evaluating the impact this new standard will have on our financial statements.

Product Sales Revenue
The amounts reported as product sales revenue on our consolidated statements of income include revenue from the physical sale of petroleum products and mark-to-market adjustments from New York Mercantile Exchange (“NYMEX”) contracts. See Note 8 – Derivative Financial Instruments for a discussion of our commodity hedging strategies and how our NYMEX contracts impact product sales revenue. All of the petroleum products inventory we physically sell associated with our butane blending and fractionation activities, as well as the barrels from product gains we obtain from our operations, are reported as product sales revenue on our consolidated statements of income.
For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015 and 2016, product sales revenue included the following (in thousands):

Segment Disclosures

Our reportable segments are strategic business units that offer different products and services. Our segments are managed separately as each segment requires different marketing strategies and business knowledge. Management evaluates performance based on segment operating margin, which includes revenue from affiliates and external customers, operating expenses, cost of product sales and earnings of non-controlled entities.
We believe that investors benefit from having access to the same financial measures used by management. Operating margin, which is presented in the following tables, is an important measure used by management to evaluate the economic performance of our core operations. Operating margin is not a GAAP measure, but the components of operating margin are computed using amounts that are determined in accordance with GAAP. A reconciliation of operating margin to operating profit, which is its nearest comparable GAAP financial measure, is included in the tables below. Operating profit includes depreciation and amortization expense and general and administrative (“G&A”) expense that management does not consider when evaluating the core profitability of our separate operating segments.

Double Eagle Pipeline LLC (“Double Eagle”)
 
50%
HoustonLink Pipeline Company, LLC (“HoustonLink”)
 
50%

50%
Texas Frontera, LLC (“Texas Frontera”)
 
50%

In February 2016, we transferred our 50% membership interest in Osage Pipe Line Company, LLC (“Osage”) to an affiliate of HollyFrontier Corporation. In conjunction with this transaction, we entered into several commercial agreements with affiliates of HollyFrontier Corporation. We recorded these commercial agreements as $43.7 million of intangible assets and $8.3 million of other receivables in our consolidated balance sheets. The intangible assets will be amortized over the 20-year life of the contracts received. The total gain recorded in 2016 was $28.1 million.

The management fees we have recognized from BridgeTex, Osage, Powder Springs, Saddlehorn and Texas Frontera are reported as affiliate management fee revenue on our consolidated statements of income.  In addition, we receive reimbursement from certain of our joint ventures for costs incurred during construction, which we included as reductions to costs and expenses on our consolidated statements of income. These construction cost reimbursements totaled $1.2 million and $2.7 million during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016, respectively.

We recognized pipeline capacity lease revenue from BridgeTex of $8.9 million and $8.9 million for the three months ended September 30, 2015 and 2016, respectively, and $25.8 million and $26.6 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2015 and 2016, respectively, which we included in transportation and terminals revenue on our consolidated statements of income.

We recognized throughput revenue from Double Eagle of $0.8 million and $0.9 million for the three months ended September 30, 2015 and 2016, respectively, and $2.6 million and $2.5 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2015 and 2016, respectively, which we included in transportation and terminals revenue on our consolidated statements of income.  At December 31, 2015 and September 30, 2016, respectively, we recognized a $0.2 million and $0.3 million trade accounts receivable from Double Eagle.

At September 30, 2016, we recognized $2.9 million, $1.4 million and $0.5 million of other receivables from Saddlehorn, BridgeTex and Powder Springs, respectively, related to the activities detailed above and miscellaneous cost reimbursements. These receivables are reported in our balance sheets as other accounts receivable.

The financial results from Texas Frontera are included in our marine storage segment, the financial results from BridgeTex, Double Eagle, HoustonLink, Osage, Saddlehorn and Seabrook are included in our crude oil segment and the financial results from Powder Springs are included in our refined products segment, each as earnings/losses of non-controlled entities.

(1)
Weighted-average interest rate includes the amortization/accretion of discounts, premiums and gains/losses realized on historical cash flow and fair value hedges recognized as interest expense.

(2)
These borrowings were outstanding for only a portion of the nine-month period ending September 30, 2016. The weighted-average interest rate for these borrowings was calculated based on the number of days the borrowings were outstanding during the noted period.

(3)
These borrowings will mature in October 2016 and are reflected in current debt on our consolidated balance sheets at December 31, 2015 and September 30, 2016.

(4)
Long-term debt is presented net of unamortized debt issuance costs of $18.7 million and $27.4 million at December 31, 2015 and September 30, 2016, respectively.

All of the instruments detailed in the table above are senior indebtedness.

The face value of our debt at December 31, 2015 and September 30, 2016 was $3.4 billion and $4.3 billion, respectively. The difference between the face value and carrying value of our debt outstanding is the unamortized portion of terminated fair value hedges and the unamortized discounts and premiums on debt issuances. Realized gains and losses on fair value hedges and note discounts and premiums are being amortized or accreted to the applicable notes over the respective lives of those notes.

2016 Debt Offering

In September 2016, we issued $500.0 million of our 4.25% notes due 2046 in an underwritten public offering. The notes were issued at 98.762% of par. Net proceeds from this offering were approximately $488.7 million, after underwriting discounts and offering expenses of $5.1 million. The net proceeds from this offering were used to repay our 5.65% senior notes when due in October 2016 and to repay borrowings outstanding under our commercial paper program. The remaining proceeds may be used for general partnership purposes, which may include capital expenditures.

In February 2016, we issued $650.0 million of our 5.00% notes due 2026 in an underwritten public offering. The notes were issued at 99.875% of par. Net proceeds from this offering were approximately $643.8 million, after underwriting discounts and offering expenses of $5.4 million. The net proceeds from this offering were used to repay borrowings outstanding under our commercial paper program and for general partnership purposes, including expansion capital.

Other Debt

Revolving Credit Facilities. At September 30, 2016, the total borrowing capacity under our revolving credit facility with a maturity date of October 27, 2020 was $1.0 billion. Any borrowings outstanding under this facility are classified as long-term debt on our consolidated balance sheets. Borrowings under this facility are unsecured and bear interest at LIBOR plus a spread ranging from 1.000% to 1.625% based on our credit ratings. Additionally, an unused commitment fee is assessed at a rate between 0.100% and 0.275% depending on our credit ratings. The unused commitment fee was 0.125% at September 30, 2016. Borrowings under this facility may be used for general partnership purposes, including capital expenditures. As of December 31, 2015 and September 30, 2016, respectively, there were no borrowings outstanding under this facility, with $6.3 million obligated for letters of credit. Amounts obligated for letters of credit are not reflected as debt on our consolidated balance sheets, but decrease our borrowing capacity under this facility.

At September 30, 2016, the total borrowing capacity under our 364-day credit facility was $250.0 million. The maturity date of this credit facility is October 25, 2016. See Note 14 – Subsequent Events for recent information about this credit facility. Any borrowings under this credit facility are classified as current debt on our consolidated balance sheets. Borrowings under this facility are unsecured and bear interest at LIBOR plus a spread ranging from 1.000% to 1.625% based on our credit ratings. Additionally, an unused commitment fee is assessed at a rate between 0.080% and 0.225% depending on our credit ratings. The unused commitment fee was 0.100% at September 30, 2016. Borrowings under this facility may be used for general partnership purposes, including capital expenditures. As of December 31, 2015 and September 30, 2016, respectively, there were no borrowings outstanding under this facility.

Commercial Paper Program. The maturities of our commercial paper notes vary, but may not exceed 397 days from the date of issuance. The commercial paper notes are sold under customary terms in the commercial paper market and are issued at a discount from par, or alternatively, are sold at par and bear varying interest rates on a fixed or floating basis. The commercial paper we can issue is limited by the amounts available under our revolving credit facility up to an aggregate principal amount of $1.0 billion and is classified as long-term debt.

Derivative Financial Instruments

Interest Rate Derivatives

We periodically enter into interest rate derivatives to hedge the fair value of our debt or interest on expected debt issuances, and we have historically designated these derivatives as cash flow or fair value hedges for accounting purposes. Adjustments resulting from discontinued hedges continue to be recognized in accordance with their historic hedging relationships.

During 2016, we entered into $100.0 million of forward-starting interest rate swap agreements to hedge against the risk of variability of future interest payments on a portion of debt we anticipate issuing in 2018. The fair values of these contracts at September 30, 2016 were recorded on our balance sheets as an other noncurrent liability of $3.5 million, with the offset recorded to other comprehensive income. We account for these agreements as cash flow hedges.

During 2015 and 2016, we entered into $250.0 million of forward-starting interest rate swap agreements to hedge against the risk of variability of future interest payments on a portion of debt we anticipated issuing in 2016. We accounted for these agreements as cash flow hedges. When we issued $500.0 million of 4.25% notes due 2046 in September 2016, we settled the associated interest rate swap agreements for a loss of $19.3 million. The loss was recorded to other comprehensive income and will be recognized into earnings as an adjustment to our periodic interest expense accruals over the first ten-year payment period of the associated notes. This loss was also reported as a net payment on financial derivatives in the financing activities of our consolidated statements of cash flows in 2016.

Commodity Derivatives

Hedging Strategies

Our butane blending activities produce gasoline products, and we can reasonably estimate the timing and quantities of sales of these products. We use a combination of NYMEX and forward purchase and sale contracts to help manage commodity price changes, which is intended to mitigate the risk of decline in the product margin realized from our butane blending activities that we choose to hedge. Further, certain of our other commercial operations generate petroleum products. We use NYMEX contracts to hedge against future price changes for some of these commodities.

We account for the forward physical purchase and sale contracts we use in our butane blending and fractionation activities as normal purchases and sales. Forward contracts that qualify for and are elected as normal purchases and sales are accounted for using traditional accrual accounting.

The NYMEX contracts that we enter into fall into one of three hedge categories:
Hedge Category
 
Hedge Purpose
 
Accounting Treatment
Qualifies For Hedge Accounting Treatment
    Cash Flow Hedge
 
To hedge the variability in cash flows related to a forecasted transaction.
 
The effective portion of changes in the fair value of the hedge is recorded to accumulated other comprehensive income/loss and reclassified to earnings when the forecasted transaction occurs. Any ineffectiveness is recognized currently in earnings.
    Fair Value Hedge
 
To hedge against changes in the fair value of a recognized asset or liability.
 
The effective portion of changes in the fair value of the hedge is recorded as adjustments to the asset or liability being hedged. Any ineffectiveness and amounts excluded from the assessment of hedge effectiveness are recognized currently in earnings.
Does Not Qualify For Hedge Accounting Treatment
    Economic Hedge
 
To effectively serve as either a fair value or a cash flow hedge; however, the derivative agreement does not qualify for hedge accounting treatment under Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 815, Derivatives and Hedging.
 
Changes in the fair value of these agreements are recognized currently in earnings.

During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015 and 2016, none of the commodity hedging contracts we entered into qualified for or were designated as cash flow hedges.

Period changes in the fair value of NYMEX agreements that are accounted for as economic hedges (other than those economic hedges of our butane purchases and our pipeline product overages as discussed below), the effective portion of changes in the fair value of cash flow hedges that are reclassified from AOCL and any ineffectiveness

associated with hedges related to our commodity activities are recognized currently in earnings as adjustments to product sales.

We also use NYMEX contracts, which are not designated as hedges for accounting purposes, to hedge against changes in the price of butane we expect to purchase in the future. Period changes in the fair value of these agreements are recognized currently in earnings as adjustments to cost of product sales.

We hold petroleum product inventories that we obtain from overages on our pipeline systems. We use NYMEX contracts that are not designated as hedges for accounting purposes to help manage price changes related to these inventory barrels. Period changes in the fair value of these agreements are recognized currently in earnings as adjustments to operating expense.

Additionally, we hold crude oil barrels that we use for operational purposes, which we classify as a long-term asset on our consolidated balance sheets as tank bottoms. We use NYMEX contracts to hedge against changes in the price of these crude oil barrels. We record the effective portion of the gains or losses for those contracts that qualify as fair value hedges as adjustments to the assets being hedged and the ineffective portions as well as amounts excluded from the assessment of hedge effectiveness as adjustments to other income or expense.

As outlined in the table below, our open NYMEX contracts at September 30, 2016 were as follows:

Energy Commodity Derivatives Contracts and Deposits Offsets

At September 30, 2016, we had made margin deposits of $30.6 million for our NYMEX contracts with our counterparties, which were recorded as a current asset under energy commodity derivatives deposits on our consolidated balance sheets. We have the right to offset the combined fair values of our open NYMEX contracts against our margin deposits under a master netting arrangement for each counterparty; however, we have elected to present the combined fair values of our open NYMEX contracts separately from the related margin deposits on our consolidated balance sheets. Additionally, we have the right to offset the fair values of our NYMEX agreements together for each counterparty, which we have elected to do, and we report the combined net balances on our consolidated balance sheets. A schedule of the derivative amounts we have offset and the deposit amounts we could offset under a master netting arrangement are provided below as of December 31, 2015 and September 30, 2016 (in thousands):

As of September 30, 2016, the net loss estimated to be classified to interest expense over the next twelve months from AOCL is approximately $3.0 million.

During 2015 and 2016, we had open NYMEX contracts on 0.7 million barrels of crude oil that were designated as fair value hedges. Because there was no ineffectiveness recognized on these hedges, the cumulative gains at December 31, 2015 and September 30, 2016 of $27.9 million and $17.6 million, respectively, from these agreements were offset by a cumulative decrease to tank bottoms. The differential between the current spot price and forward price is excluded from the assessment of hedge effectiveness for these fair value hedges. For the three months ended September 30, 2015 and 2016, we recognized a gain (loss) of $(1.7) million and $0.3 million, respectively, and for the nine months ended September 30, 2015 and 2016, we recognized a gain of $4.6 million and $4.5 million, respectively, for the amounts we excluded from the assessment of effectiveness of these fair value hedges, which we reported as other income/expense on our consolidated statements of income.
The following table provides a summary of the effect on our consolidated statements of income for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015 and 2016 of derivatives accounted for under ASC 815, Derivatives and Hedging, that were not designated as hedging instruments (in thousands):

Commitments and Contingencies

Environmental Liabilities

Liabilities recognized for estimated environmental costs were $31.4 million and $25.8 million at December 31, 2015 and September 30, 2016, respectively. We have classified environmental liabilities as current or noncurrent based on management’s estimates regarding the timing of actual payments. Management estimates that expenditures associated with these environmental liabilities will be substantially paid over the next 9 years. Environmental expense recognized as a result of changes in our environmental liabilities are generally included in operating expenses on our consolidated statements of income. Environmental expenses were $1.3 million and $0.3 million for the three months ended September 30, 2015 and 2016, respectively, and $5.6 million and $4.6 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2015 and 2016, respectively.

Environmental Receivables

Receivables from insurance carriers and other third parties related to environmental matters were $2.6 million at December 31, 2015, of which $0.7 million and $1.9 million were recorded to other accounts receivable and long-term receivables, respectively, on our consolidated balance sheets. Receivables from insurance carriers and other third parties related to environmental matters were $2.0 million at September 30, 2016, of which $0.8 million and $1.2 million were recorded to other accounts receivable and long-term receivables, respectively, on our consolidated balance sheets.
Other
We are a party to various other claims, legal actions and complaints arising in the ordinary course of business, including without limitation those disclosed in Item 1, Legal Proceedings of Part II of this report on Form 10-Q. While the results cannot be predicted with certainty, management believes the ultimate resolution of these claims, legal actions and complaints after consideration of amounts accrued, insurance coverage or other indemnification arrangements will not have a material adverse effect on our results of operations, financial position or cash flows. See Note 14 – Subsequent Events for additional information about a recent event.

Long-Term Incentive Plan
We have a long-term incentive plan (“LTIP”) for certain of our employees and directors of our general partner. The LTIP primarily consists of phantom units and permits the grant of awards covering an aggregate payout of 11.9 million of our limited partner units. The compensation committee of our general partner’s board of directors administers our LTIP. The estimated units remaining available under the LTIP at September 30, 2016 total 3.0 million.
