"We are pleased with our performance for the quarter, which included contributions from the strategic acquisitions of the Northern California Terminalling and Storage Assets and the North Dakota Gathering and Processing Assets, as well as organic growth contributions in our crude oil gathering and terminalling businesses," said Greg Goff, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of TLLP’s general partner. "Despite harsher than normal winter weather, we had record crude oil gathering, terminalling and pipeline throughput during the quarter, which led to strong operating income and EBITDA performance. With stable market conditions and an improving commodity price environment, we are on track to delivering approximately $550 million of annual net earnings and approximately $1 billion of annual EBITDA in 2017."

TLLP changed its operating segment presentation in the first quarter 2017 to reflect the expanded gathering and processing assets and operations. With the acquisition of the North Dakota Gathering and Processing Assets, the Company’s gathering and processing of crude oil, natural gas and produced water expanded significantly and enhanced TLLP’s integrated midstream service offering to its customers. Comparable prior period information for the newly presented Gathering and Processing segment has been recast to reflect the current presentation.

SEGMENT RESULTS

GATHERING AND PROCESSING. Gathering and Processing segment operating income was $62 million for the first quarter 2017 compared to $64 million last year. Segment EBITDA was $101 million compared to $100 million a year ago, which included a benefit of $6 million for legal settlements. Crude oil and water gathering throughput for the first quarter 2017 increased to 253 thousand barrels per day from 216 thousand barrels per day in 2016. The volume increase was primarily driven by new inbound and outbound interconnections on the High Plains Pipeline System in North Dakota and contributions from the North Dakota Gathering and Processing Assets acquisition.

Gas gathering and processing throughput for the first quarter 2017 increased to 952 thousand MMBtu per day from 903 thousand MMBtu per day a year ago, which was attributable to contributions from the North Dakota Gathering and Processing Assets acquisition. Production of Natural Gas Liquids either under Keep Whole or Percent of Proceeds declined to 7.4 thousand barrels per day in the first quarter 2017 from 8.6 thousand barrels per day last year. The decline was primarily due to production declines in the Rockies, slightly offset by contributions from North Dakota Gathering and Processing Assets acquisition.

TERMINALLING AND TRANSPORTATION. Terminalling and Transportation segment operating income increased to $98 million for the first quarter 2017 from $63 million last year and segment EBITDA improved to $119 million from $83 million a year ago. Terminalling volumes increased to 1.0 million barrels per day from 913 thousand barrels per day a year ago. Transportation pipeline volumes increased to 834 thousand barrels per day from 824 thousand barrels per day in 2016. Improved operating results and volumes were primarily driven by higher throughput at TLLP’s California marine terminals, as well as contributions from the acquisitions of the Northern California Terminalling and Storage Assets completed in the fourth quarter 2016 and the Alaska Storage and Terminalling Assets completed in the third quarter 2016.

BALANCE SHEET AND CASH FLOW

Net cash from operating activities was $207 million in the first quarter 2017 compared to $156 million in 2016. Distributable cash flow for the first quarter was $152 million compared to $142 million last year. The Company ended the first quarter 2017 with $35 million of cash. TLLP has approximately $1.6 billion of availability under its revolving credit facilities.

Net capital expenditures for the first quarter 2017 were $30 million, which include $20 million of growth capital and $10 million of net maintenance capital. TLLP continues to expect total 2017 net capital expenditures of $295 million, including $230 million of growth capital and $65 million of net maintenance capital. However, total capital expenditures for 2017 could be lower given the timing of permit approvals for the Los Angeles Refinery Interconnect Pipeline System project.

On April 19, 2017, the Company announced its quarterly cash distribution of $0.94 per limited partnership unit or $3.76 on an annualized basis. The declared distribution represents a 16% increase over the first quarter 2016 distribution of $0.81 per limited partner unit paid in May 13, 2016. This also represents the 24th consecutive quarterly increase. Distribution coverage ratio was 1.09x for the first quarter. Distribution coverage ratio for the trailing twelve month period was 1.01x.

STRATEGIC UPDATE

In January, TLLP closed the previously announced acquisition of crude oil, natural gas and produced water gathering systems and two natural gas processing facilities for total consideration of approximately $705 million. The North Dakota Gathering and Processing Assets include over 650 miles of crude oil, natural gas, and produced water gathering pipelines, 170 MMcf per day of natural gas processing capacity and 18,700 barrels per day of fractionation capacity in the Sanish and Pronghorn fields of the Williston Basin in North Dakota. TLLP continues to expect the assets to contribute $65 to $75 million of annual net earnings and $100 to $110 million of annual EBITDA in 2017.

In February, TLLP closed a registered public offering of 5,000,000 common units representing limited partner interests for total gross proceeds of approximately $284 million (before underwriting discounts and estimated offering expenses). TLLP used the net proceeds from the offering to repay borrowings under its revolving credit facility.

NON-GAAP MEASURES

As a supplement to our financial information presented in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("U.S. GAAP"), our management uses certain "non-GAAP" measures to analyze our results of operations, assess internal performance against budgeted and forecasted amounts and evaluate future impacts to our financial performance as a result of capital investments, acquisitions, divestitures and other strategic projects. These measures are important factors in assessing our operating results and profitability and include:

- Financial non-GAAP measures:

- EBITDA-U.S. GAAP-based net earnings before interest, income taxes, and depreciation and amortization expense

- Segment EBITDA-a segment’s U.S. GAAP-based operating income before depreciation and amortization expense plus equity in earnings (loss) of equity method investments and other income (expense), net

- Liquidity non-GAAP measures:

- Distributable Cash Flow-U.S. GAAP-based net cash flow from operating activities plus or minus changes in working capital, amounts spent on maintenance capital net of reimbursements and other adjustments not expected to settle in cash

- Distribution Coverage Ratio-Distributable Cash Flow divided by total distributions

We present these measures because we believe they may help investors, analysts, lenders and ratings agencies analyze our results of operations and liquidity in conjunction with our U.S. GAAP results, including but not limited to:

- our operating performance as compared to other publicly traded partnerships in the midstream energy industry, without regard to historical cost basis or financing methods;

- the ability of our assets to generate sufficient cash flow to make distributions to our unitholders;

- our ability to incur and service debt and fund capital expenditures; and

- the viability of acquisitions and other capital expenditure projects and the returns on investment of various investment opportunities.

Management also uses these measures to assess internal performance, and we believe they may provide meaningful supplemental information to the users of our financial statements. Non-GAAP measures have important limitations as analytical tools, because they exclude some, but not all, items that affect net earnings, operating income and net cash from operating activities. These measures should not be considered substitutes for their most directly comparable U.S. GAAP financial measures. See the tables below for reconciliations between each non-GAAP financial measure and its most directly comparable U.S. GAAP financial measure.

ITEMS IMPACTING COMPARABILITY

The Partnership’s future results of operations may not be comparable to the historical results of operations of the acquired assets from Tesoro ("Predecessors") for the reasons described below.

ACQUISITIONS. On January 1, 2017, the Partnership acquired crude oil, natural gas and produced water gathering systems and two natural gas processing facilities (the "North Dakota Gathering and Processing Assets"). The North Dakota Gathering and Processing Assets include over 650 miles of crude oil, natural gas, and produced water gathering pipelines, 170 MMcf per day of natural gas processing and 18,700 barrels per day of fractionation capacity in the Sanish and Pronghorn fields of the Williston Basin in North Dakota. The operating results for this acquisition are reflected in our Gathering and Processing segment.

On November 21, 2016, we acquired certain terminalling and storage assets located in Martinez, California (the "Northern California Terminalling and Storage Assets") purchased from subsidiaries of Tesoro Corporation. The Northern California Terminalling and Storage Assets include 5.8 million barrels of crude oil, feedstock, and refined product storage capacity at Tesoro’s Martinez Refinery along with the Avon marine terminal capable of handling 80,000 bpd of feedstock and refined product throughput. Additionally, on July 1 and September 16, 2016, the Partnership purchased certain terminalling and storage assets in Anchorage, Fairbanks and at Tesoro’s Kenai Refinery (together, the "Alaska Storage and Terminalling Assets") owned by Tesoro. The storage assets include tankage with a shell capacity of approximately 3.5 million barrels and ancillary facilities used for the operations at Tesoro’s Kenai Refinery. The refined product terminals are located in Anchorage and Fairbanks. The operating results for these acquisitions from Tesoro are reflected in our Terminalling and Transportation segment.

PREDECESSOR IMPACTS. Our financial information includes the historical results of our Predecessors and the results of TLLP for all periods presented. The financial statements of our Predecessors have been prepared from the separate records maintained by Tesoro and may not necessarily be indicative of the conditions that would have existed or the results of operations if our Predecessors had been operated as an unaffiliated entity.

CHANGE IN SEGMENT PRESENTATION. We changed our operating segment presentation in the first quarter of 2017 to reflect our expanded gathering and processing assets and operations and how our chief operating decision maker manages our business. With the completion of the North Dakota Gathering and Processing Assets acquisition on January 1, 2017, our gathering and processing assets and operations expanded significantly and enhanced our ability to offer integrated gathering and processing services to our customers. Given the business’s focus providing integrated services along with the revised reporting structure implemented by management to assess performance and make resource allocation decisions, we have determined our operating segments, which are the same for reporting purposes, are the (i) Gathering and Processing segment and (ii) Terminalling and Transportation segment. Comparable prior period information for the newly presented Gathering and Processing segment has been recast to reflect our current presentation. No changes were deemed necessary to our Terminalling and Transportation segment. In addition, management revised its methodology for the allocation of corporate general and administrative expenses. Comparable prior period segment information has been recast to reflect our revised allocation methodology.

(a) Management uses average margin per barrel, average revenue per MMBtu and average revenue per barrel to evaluate performance and compare profitability to other companies in the industry.

Average margin on natural gas liquids ("NGL") sales per barrel - calculated as the difference between the NGL sales and the costs associated with the NGL sales divided by total NGL sales volumes.

Average gas gathering and processing revenue per MMBtu - calculated as total gathering and processing fee-based revenue divided by total gas gathering throughput.

Average crude oil and water gathering revenue per barrel - calculated as total crude oil and water gathering fee-based revenue divided by total crude oil and water gathering throughput.

Average terminalling revenue per barrel - calculated as total terminalling revenue divided by total terminalling throughput.

Average pipeline transportation revenue per barrel - calculated as total pipeline transportation revenue divided by total pipeline transportation throughput.

There are a variety of ways to calculate these measures; other companies may calculate these in different way.

(b) For the 2017 Quarter, we had 21.1 Mbpd of gross NGL sales under percent of proceeds ("POP") and keep-whole arrangements. We retained 7.4 Mbpd under these arrangements. The difference between gross sales barrels and barrels retained is reflected in cost of NGL sales resulting from the gross presentation required for the POP arrangements associated with the North Dakota Gathering and Processing Assets.

(c) Included in cost of NGL sales for the 2017 Quarter were approximately $2 million of cost of sales related to crude oil volumes obtained in connection with the North Dakota Gathering and Processing Assets acquisition. The corresponding revenues were recognized in other revenue. As such, the calculation of the average margin on NGL sales per barrel excludes this amount.

(d) Operating expenses include an imbalance settlement gain of $2 million for the 2017 Quarter.

(e) Volumes represent barrels sold under our keep-whole arrangements, net barrels retained under our POP arrangements and other associated products.
