New Mexico pipeline system. Magellan also will acquire about 250 miles of common carrier pipeline that transports refined petroleum products north from El Paso, Texas, delivering products to Albuquerque, New Mexico, and transports products south to the Texas-Mexico border for delivery via a third-party pipeline within Mexico.

Management expects the acquisition to be immediately accretive to the partnership's distributable cash flow per unit, with the potential for additional growth in cash flow from the assets over time.

The acquisition is expected to close in the second quarter of 2013 subject to regulatory approvals. Management expects to fund the acquisition with cash on hand and borrowings under its revolving credit facility, if necessary.
