Blueknight Sees Stronger Operating Margins from Most Business Segments

March 10, 2017 [OPIS] - Blueknight Energy Partners (BKEP) said that its total operating margin, excluding depreciation and amortization, for the fourth quarter 2016 rose by 18% from a year ago to $20.273 million, thanks to stronger performance from asphalt, crude trucking and services, and crude terminaling and storage business segments.



However, crude pipeline services margins in the fourth quarter 2016 were lower. Total operating margin for 2016 was 9% higher than 2015 at $82.993 million.

BKEP's midstream energy assets consist of approximately 9.6 million bbl of combined asphalt product and residual fuel oil storage located at 54 terminals in 26 states, 7.4 million bbl of crude oil storage located in Oklahoma and Texas, approximately 6.6 million bbl of which are located at the Cushing, Okla., Interchange, approximately 760 miles of crude oil pipeline located primarily in Oklahoma and Texas and approximately 200 crude oil transportation and oilfield services vehicles deployed in Kansas, Oklahoma and Texas.
