Unless the context otherwise requires, references in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2022 (this “Form 10-Q”) to “Predecessor,” and “we,” “our,” “us,” or like terms, when used in the context of periods prior to the completion of certain acquisitions from PBF LLC, refer to PBF MLP Predecessor, our predecessor for accounting purposes (our “Predecessor”), which includes assets, liabilities and results of operations of certain crude oil, refined products, natural gas and intermediates transportation, terminaling, storage and processing assets previously operated and owned by PBF Holding’s subsidiaries and PBF Holding’s previously held subsidiaries. As of March 31, 2022, PBF Holding, together with its subsidiaries, owns and operates six oil refineries (two of which are operated as a single unit) and related facilities in North America. PBF Energy, through its ownership of PBF LLC, controls all of the business and affairs of PBFX and PBF Holding.

References in this Form 10-Q to “PBF Logistics LP,” “PBFX,” the “Partnership,” “we,” “our,” or “us,” or like terms used in the context of periods on or after the completion of certain acquisitions from PBF LLC, refer to PBF Logistics LP and its subsidiaries.

CAUTIONARY NOTE REGARDING FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS
This Form 10-Q (including information incorporated by reference) contains certain “forward-looking statements,” as defined in the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, which involve risks and uncertainties. You can identify forward-looking statements because they contain words such as “believes,” “expects,” “may,” “should,” “seeks,” “approximately,” “intends,” “plans,” “estimates” or “anticipates” or similar expressions that relate to our strategy, plans or intentions. All statements we make relating to our estimated and projected earnings, margins, costs, expenditures, cash flows, growth rates and financial results or to our expectations regarding future industry trends are forward-looking statements. In addition, we, through our senior management, from time to time, make forward-looking public statements concerning our expected future operations and performance and other developments. These forward-looking statements are subject to risks and uncertainties that may change at any time; therefore, our actual results may differ materially from those that we expected. We derive many of our forward-looking statements from our operating budgets and forecasts, which are based on many detailed assumptions. While we believe that our assumptions are reasonable, we caution that it is very difficult to predict the impact of known factors and, of course, it is impossible for us to anticipate all factors that could affect our actual results.
Important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from our expectations, which we refer to as “cautionary statements,” are disclosed under “Item 1A. Risk Factors” and “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations,” elsewhere in this Form 10-Q, in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021 (our “2021 Form 10-K”) and in our other filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). All forward-looking information in this Form 10-Q and subsequent written and oral forward-looking statements attributable to us, or persons acting on our behalf, are expressly qualified in their entirety by the cautionary statements. Some of the factors that we believe could affect our results include:
changes in general economic conditions, including market and macro-economic disruptions resulting from pandemics, such as the ongoing coronavirus disease 2019, commonly known as COVID-19, pandemic, including resurgences and variants of the virus, and related governmental and consumer responses thereto;
our ability to make, complete and integrate acquisitions from affiliates or third parties, and to realize the benefits from such acquisitions;
our ability to have sufficient cash from operations to enable us to pay the minimum quarterly distribution;
competitive conditions in our industry;
political pressure and influence of environmental groups and other stakeholders on decisions and policies related to the refining, processing and storing of crude oil and refined petroleum products;
actions taken by our customers and competitors;
the supply of, and demand for, crude oil, refined products, natural gas and logistics services;
our ability to successfully implement our business plan;
our dependence on PBF Energy for a substantial majority of our revenue subjects us to the business risks of PBF Energy, which include the possibility that contracts will not be renewed because they are no longer beneficial for PBF Energy;
a substantial majority of our revenue is generated at PBF Energy’s facilities, particularly associated with PBF Energy’s Delaware City, Toledo and Torrance refineries, and any adverse developments at any of these facilities could have a material adverse effect on us;

4


our ability to complete internal growth projects on time and on budget;
the price and availability of debt and equity financing;
operating hazards and other risks incidental to the processing of crude oil and the receiving, handling, storing and transferring of crude oil, refined products, natural gas and intermediates;
natural disasters, weather-related delays, casualty losses and other matters beyond our control;
the threat of cyber-attacks;
our and PBF Energy’s increased dependence on technology;
interest rates;
labor relations;
changes in the availability and cost of capital;
the effects of existing and future laws and governmental regulations, including those related to the shipment of crude oil by rail or in response to the potential impacts of climate change;
changes in insurance markets impacting costs and the level and types of coverage available;
the timing and extent of changes in commodity prices and demand for PBF Energy’s refined products and natural gas and the differential in the prices of various crude oils;
the suspension, reduction or termination of PBF Energy’s obligations under our commercial agreements;
disruptions due to equipment interruption or failure at our facilities, PBF Energy’s facilities or third-party facilities on which our business is dependent;
our general partner and its affiliates, including PBF Energy, have conflicts of interest with us and limited duties to us and our unitholders, and they may favor their own interests to the detriment of us and our other common unitholders;
our partnership agreement restricts the remedies available to holders of our common units for actions taken by our general partner that might otherwise constitute breaches of fiduciary duty;
holders of our common units have limited voting rights and are not entitled to elect our general partner or its directors;
our tax treatment depends on qualifying income requirements and our status as a partnership for U.S. federal income tax purposes, as well as not being subject to a material amount of entity level taxation by individual states;
changes at any time (including on a retroactive basis) in the tax treatment of publicly traded partnerships, including related impacts on potential dropdown transactions with PBF LLC, or an investment in our common units;
our unitholders will be required to pay taxes on their share of our taxable income even if they do not receive any cash distributions from us;
the effects of future litigation; and
other factors discussed elsewhere in this Form 10-Q.
We caution you that the foregoing list of important factors may not contain all of the material factors that are important to you. In addition, in light of these risks and uncertainties, the matters referred to in the forward-looking statements contained in this Form 10-Q may not in fact occur. Accordingly, investors should not place undue reliance on those statements.
Our forward-looking statements speak only as of the date of this Form 10-Q. Except as required by applicable law, including the securities laws of the U.S., we undertake no obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements. All subsequent written and oral forward-looking statements attributable to us or persons acting on our behalf are expressly qualified in their entirety by the foregoing.

(“PBF Energy”) is the sole managing member of PBF LLC and, as of March 31, 2022, owned 99.2% of the total economic interest in PBF LLC. In addition, PBF LLC is the sole managing member of PBF Holding Company LLC (“PBF Holding”), a Delaware limited liability company and affiliate of PBFX. PBF LLC owned 29,953,631 PBFX common units constituting an aggregate of 47.9% limited partner interest in PBFX, with the remaining 52.1% limited partner interest owned by public unitholders as of March 31, 2022.

PBFX engages in the processing of crude oil and the receiving, handling, storing and transferring of crude oil, refined products, natural gas and intermediates. The Partnership generally does not take ownership of or receive any payments based on the value of the crude oil, products, natural gas or intermediates that it handles and does not engage in the trading of any commodities. PBFX’s assets are integral to the operations of PBF Holding’s refineries, and, as a result, the Partnership continues to generate a substantial majority of its revenue from transactions with PBF Holding. Additionally, certain of PBFX’s assets generate revenue from third-party transactions.

Principles of Combination and Consolidation and Basis of Presentation

In connection with, and subsequent to, PBFX’s initial public offering (“IPO”), the Partnership has acquired certain assets from PBF LLC (collectively referred to as the “Contributed Assets”). Such acquisitions completed subsequent to the IPO were made through a series of dropdown transactions with PBF LLC (collectively referred to as the “Acquisitions from PBF”). The assets, liabilities and results of operations of the Contributed Assets prior to their acquisition by PBFX are collectively referred to as the “Predecessor.” The transactions through which PBFX acquired the Contributed Assets were transfers of assets between entities under common control. The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements and related notes present solely the consolidated financial position and consolidated financial results of PBFX. Refer to the Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021 (the “2021 Form 10-K”) for additional information regarding the Acquisitions from PBF and the agreements that were entered into or amended with related parties in connection with these acquisitions.

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) for interim financial information. Accordingly, these unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements do not include all of the information and footnotes required by GAAP for complete financial statements. In the opinion of management, PBFX has included all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring accruals) considered necessary for a fair presentation of the financial position, results of operations and cash flows of PBFX for the periods presented. The results of operations for the three months ended March 31, 2022 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the full year.

The Predecessor generally did not operate its respective assets for the purpose of generating revenue independent of other PBF Energy businesses prior to the IPO or the effective dates of the Acquisitions from PBF. All intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated.

Recently Adopted Accounting Guidance

In March 2020, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (the “FASB”) issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) No. 2020-04, “Reference Rate Reform (Topic 848): Facilitation of the Effects of Reference Rate Reform on Financial Reporting”. The amendments in this ASU provide optional guidance to alleviate the burden in accounting for reference rate reform by allowing certain expedients and exceptions in applying GAAP to contracts, hedging relationships and other transactions affected by the expected market transition from London Interbank Offering Rate and other interbank rates. The Partnership’s adoption of this guidance did not have, and is not anticipated to have, a material impact on its condensed consolidated financial statements and related disclosures.

2. REVENUE

Revenue Recognition

In accordance with FASB Accounting Standards Codification “Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606),” revenue is recognized when control of the promised goods or services is transferred to our customers, in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the Partnership expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services.

As disclosed in Note 11 “Segment Information” of the Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements, the Partnership’s business consists of two reportable segments: (i) Transportation and Terminaling and (ii) Storage.

The following table provides information relating to the Partnership’s revenue for each service category by segment for the periods presented:
Three Months Ended

Other3,998 2,280 
Total19,195 16,028 
Total Revenue$89,443 $87,505 

PBFX recognizes revenue by charging fees for crude oil and refined products terminaling, pipeline, storage and processing services based on contractual rates applied to the greater of contractual minimum volume commitments (“MVCs”), as applicable, or actual volumes transferred, stored or processed.

PBF LOGISTICS LP
NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(IN THOUSANDS, EXCEPT UNIT AND PER UNIT DATA)

Minimum Volume Commitments

Transportation and Terminaling Segment

The Partnership’s Transportation and Terminaling segment consists of product terminals, pipelines, crude unloading facilities and other facilities capable of transporting and handling crude oil, refined products and natural gas. Certain of the affiliate and third-party Transportation and Terminaling commercial agreements contain MVCs. Under these commercial agreements, if the Partnership’s customer fails to transport its minimum throughput volumes during any specified period, the customer will pay the Partnership an amount equal to the difference in actual volumes transported and/or throughput and the minimum volumes required under the agreement multiplied by the applicable contractual rate (each a “deficiency payment”). Deficiency payments are initially recorded as deferred revenue on the Partnership’s balance sheets for all contracts in which the MVC deficiency makeup period is contractually longer than a fiscal quarter.

Certain of the Partnership’s customers may apply deficiency payment amounts as a credit against volumes throughput in excess of its MVC, as applicable, during subsequent quarters under the terms of the applicable agreement. The Partnership recognizes operating revenue for the deficiency payments when credits are used for volumes transported in excess of MVCs or at the end of the contractual period. Unused credits determined to have a remote chance of being utilized by customers in the future are recognized as operating revenue in the period when that determination is made. The use or recognition of the credits is recorded as a reduction to deferred revenue.

Storage Segment

The Partnership earns storage revenue under crude oil and refined products storage contracts. In addition, the Partnership earns storage revenue under its processing agreement at its East Coast storage facility. Certain of these affiliate and third-party contracts contain capacity reservation agreements, under which the Partnership collects a fee for reserving storage capacity for customers in its facilities. Customers generally pay reservation fees based on the level of storage capacity reserved rather than the actual volumes stored.

MVC Payments to be Received

As of March 31, 2022, MVC payments to be received, based on future performance obligations of the Partnership, related to noncancellable commercial terminaling, pipeline and storage agreements were as follows:
Remainder of 2022$76,620 
202394,499 
202492,505 
202592,252

(1) All fixed consideration from contracts with customers is included in the amounts presented above. Variable consideration that is constrained or not required to be estimated is excluded.
(2) Arrangements deemed leases are excluded from this table.

Leases

Lessor Disclosures

The Partnership has leased certain of its assets under lease agreements with varying terms up to fifteen years, including leases of storage, terminaling, pipeline and processing assets. Certain of these leases include options to extend or renew the lease for one or more years. These options are included in the lease term when it is reasonably certain that the option will be exercised. The Partnership’s lease agreements generally do not provide an option for the lessee to purchase the leased equipment at the end of the lease term. However, in connection with the affiliate lease agreement for the interstate natural gas pipeline at PBF Holding’s Paulsboro Refinery (the “Paulsboro Natural Gas Pipeline”), the Partnership granted a right of first refusal in favor of PBF LLC such that the Partnership would be required to give PBF Holding the first opportunity to purchase the Paulsboro Natural Gas Pipeline at market value prior to selling to an unrelated third party.

At inception, the Partnership determines if an arrangement contains a lease and whether that lease meets the classification criteria of a finance or operating lease. As of March 31, 2022, all of the Partnership’s leases have been determined to be operating leases. Some of the Partnership’s lease arrangements contain lease components (e.g., MVCs) and non-lease components (e.g., maintenance, labor charges, etc.). The Partnership accounts for the lease and non-lease components as a single lease component for every asset class.

Certain of the Partnership’s lease agreements include MVCs that are adjusted periodically based on a specified index or rate. The leases are initially measured using the projected payments adjusted for the index or rate in effect at the commencement date. The Partnership’s lease agreements do not contain any material residual value guarantees or material restrictive covenants.

The Partnership expects to derive significant future benefits from its leased assets following the end of the lease term, as the remaining useful life would be sufficient to allow the Partnership to enter into new leases for such assets.

In the normal course of business, the Partnership enters into contracts with PBF Holding and its refineries whereby PBF Holding and its refineries lease certain of the Partnership’s storage, terminaling and pipeline assets. The Partnership believes the terms and conditions under these leases are generally no less favorable to either party than those that could have been negotiated with unaffiliated parties with respect to similar services. The terms for these affiliate leases range from one to fifteen years. Leases with affiliates represent approximately 90% of the undiscounted contractual future rental income from the Partnership’s leased assets.

The table below quantifies lease revenue for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021:

Net assets subject to lease$547,692 $553,716 

Deferred Revenue

The Partnership records deferred revenue when cash payments are received or due in advance of performance, including amounts which are refundable. Deferred revenue was $2,724 and $2,372 as of March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, respectively. Changes in deferred revenue are primarily driven by the timing and extent of cash payments received in advance of satisfying the Partnership’s performance obligations for the comparative periods.

The Partnership’s payment terms vary by the type and location of the customer and the services offered. The period between invoicing and when payment is due is not significant (i.e., generally within two months). For certain services and customer types, the Partnership requires payment before the services are performed for the customer.

3. CURRENT EXPECTED CREDIT LOSSES

Credit Losses

The Partnership has exposure to credit losses through its collection of fees charged to customers for terminaling, pipeline, storage and processing services. The Partnership evaluates creditworthiness on an individual customer basis. The Partnership utilizes a financial review model for purposes of evaluating creditworthiness, which is based on information from financial statements and credit reports. The financial review model enables the Partnership to assess the customer’s risk profile and determine credit limits on the basis of their financial strength, including but not limited to, their liquidity, leverage, debt serviceability, longevity and how they pay their bills. The Partnership may require security in the form of letters of credit or cash payments in advance of product and services delivery for certain customers that are deemed higher risk. Additionally, the Partnership may hold customers’ product in storage at its facilities as collateral and/or deny access to its facilities, as allowable under commercial law or its contractual agreements, should payment not be received.

The Partnership reviews each customer’s credit risk profile at least annually, or more frequently if warranted. Based on its credit assessments, the Partnership may adjust payment terms or limit available trade credit for customers, and customers within certain industries, which are deemed to be at a higher risk.

The Partnership performs a quarterly allowance for doubtful accounts analysis to assess whether an allowance needs to be recorded for any outstanding trade receivables. In estimating credit losses, management reviews accounts that are past due, have known disputes or have experienced any negative credit events that may result in future collectability issues. There was no allowance for doubtful accounts recorded as of March 31, 2022 or December 31, 2021.

Fair Value Measurement

A fair value hierarchy (Level 1, Level 2, or Level 3) is used to categorize fair value amounts based on the quality of inputs used to measure fair value. Accordingly, fair values derived from Level 1 inputs utilize quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities. Fair values derived from Level 2 inputs are based on quoted prices for similar assets and liabilities in active markets, and inputs other than quoted prices that are either directly or indirectly observable for the asset or liability. Level 3 inputs are unobservable inputs for the asset or liability, and include situations where there is little, if any, market activity for the asset or liability.


16

PBF LOGISTICS LP
NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(IN THOUSANDS, EXCEPT UNIT AND PER UNIT DATA)

The estimated fair value of the Revolving Credit Facility approximates its carrying value, categorized as a Level 2 measurement, as this borrowing bears interest based on short-term floating market interest rates. The estimated fair value of the Partnership’s 6.875% Senior Notes due 2023 (the “2023 Notes”), categorized as a Level 2 measurement, was calculated based on the present value of future expected payments utilizing implied current market interest rates based on quoted prices of the 2023 Notes and was approximately $523,017 and $513,661 at March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, respectively. The carrying value and fair value of PBFX’s debt, exclusive of unamortized debt issuance costs and unamortized premium on the 2023 Notes, was $600,000 and $598,017 as of March 31, 2022, respectively, and $625,000 and $613,661 as of December 31, 2021, respectively.

7. EQUITY

PBFX had 32,644,224 outstanding common units held by the public as of March 31, 2022. PBF LLC owns 29,953,631 PBFX common units constituting an aggregate of 47.9% of PBFX’s limited partner interest as of March 31, 2022.

Unit Activity

The partnership agreement authorizes PBFX to issue an unlimited number of additional partnership interests for the consideration of, and on the terms and conditions determined by, PBFX’s general partner without the approval of the unitholders. It is possible that PBFX will fund future acquisitions through the issuance of additional common units, subordinated units or other partnership interests.

The following table presents changes in PBFX common units outstanding:

8. NET INCOME PER UNIT

Earnings in excess of distributions are allocated to the limited partners based on their respective ownership interests. Payments made to PBFX’s unitholders are determined in relation to actual distributions declared and are not based on the net income (loss) allocations used in the calculation of net income (loss) per unit.

Diluted net income per unit includes the effect of potentially dilutive units of PBFX’s common units that consist of unvested phantom units. There were 1,250 anti-dilutive phantom units for the three months ended March 31, 2022, compared to 200,481 anti-dilutive phantom units for the three months ended March 31, 2021.

9. COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES

Environmental Matters

PBFX’s assets, along with PBF Energy’s refineries, are subject to extensive and frequently changing federal, state and local laws and regulations, including, but not limited to, those relating to the discharge of materials into the environment or that otherwise relate to the protection of the environment (including in response to the potential impacts of climate change), waste management and the characteristics and the composition of fuels. Compliance with existing and anticipated laws and regulations can increase the overall cost of operating the Partnership’s assets, including remediation, operating costs and capital costs to construct, maintain and upgrade equipment and facilities.

PBFX recorded a total liability related to environmental remediation obligations at certain of its assets of $1,911 and $1,695 as of March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, respectively, related to existing environmental liabilities.

During the first quarter of 2019, the Partnership notified certain agencies of an oil sheen present in the Schuylkill River near one of its facilities. Clean-up, identification and mitigation of the source were immediately initiated. The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (“PADEP”) approved the Site Characterization Report submitted by the Partnership. A Remedial Action Plan was submitted to the PADEP in October 2020. The PADEP approved the Remedial Action Plan in January 2021, and the response activities are substantially complete. Future remediation costs and any potential penalties are currently not expected to be material to the Partnership.

Contingent Consideration

In connection with the Partnership’s acquisition of CPI Operations LLC from Crown Point International LLC (“Crown Point”) in October 2018, the purchase and sale agreement between the Partnership and Crown Point included an earn-out provision related to an existing commercial agreement with a third party, based on the future results of certain acquired idled assets (the “Contingent Consideration”). The Partnership and Crown Point agreed to share equally in the future operating profits of the restarted assets, as defined in the purchase and sale agreement, over a contractual term of up to three years starting in 2019. The Contingent Consideration recorded was $485 and $2,932 as of March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, respectively. The Contingent Consideration is included in “Accrued liabilities” within the Partnership’s condensed consolidated balance sheets.

The Contingent Consideration is categorized in Level 3 of the fair value hierarchy and is estimated based on management’s estimate of the future cash flows associated with the recommenced idled assets. The changes in fair value of the obligation during the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021 were primarily due to the changes in the estimated future cash flows of the assets and settlement payments made by the Partnership. The earn-out provision between the Partnership and Crown Point runs through October 2022.

10. RELATED PARTY TRANSACTIONS

Agreements with PBF Energy Entities

Commercial Agreements

PBFX currently derives a majority of its revenue from long-term, fee-based agreements with PBF Holding, which generally include MVCs and contractual fee escalations for inflation adjustments and certain increases in operating costs. PBFX believes the terms and conditions under these agreements, as well as the Omnibus Agreement and the Services Agreement (each as defined below), each with PBF Holding, are generally no less favorable to either party than those that could have been negotiated with unaffiliated parties with respect to similar services. 

Refer to the 2021 Form 10-K for a more complete description of PBFX’s commercial agreements with PBF Holding, including those identified as leases, which were entered into prior to 2022. No new agreements or amendments were entered into during the three months ended March 31, 2022.

Other Agreements

In addition to the commercial agreements described above, PBFX has entered into an omnibus agreement with PBF GP, PBF LLC and PBF Holding, which has been amended and restated in connection with certain of the Acquisitions from PBF (as amended, the “Omnibus Agreement”). This agreement addresses the payment of an annual fee for the provision of various general and administrative services and reimbursement of salary and benefit costs for certain PBF Energy employees.

Additionally, PBFX has entered into an operation and management services and secondment agreement with PBF Holding and certain of its subsidiaries (as amended, the “Services Agreement”), pursuant to which PBF Holding and its subsidiaries provide PBFX with the personnel necessary for the Partnership to perform its obligations under its commercial agreements. PBFX reimburses PBF Holding for the use of such employees and the provision of certain infrastructure-related services to the extent applicable to its operations, including storm water discharge and waste water treatment, steam, potable water, access to certain roads and grounds, sanitary sewer access, electrical power, emergency response, filter press, fuel gas, API solids treatment, fire water and compressed air. The Services Agreement will terminate upon the termination of the Omnibus Agreement, provided that the Partnership may terminate any service upon 30-days’ notice.

Refer to the 2021 Form 10-K for a more complete description of the Omnibus Agreement and the Services Agreement.

PBFX has evaluated the performance of each operating segment based on its respective operating income. The operating segments adhere to the accounting polices used for the condensed consolidated financial statements, as described in Note 2 “Summary of Accounting Policies” of the Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements in the 2021 Form 10-K.

The Partnership’s operating segments are organized into two reportable segments: (i) Transportation and Terminaling and (ii) Storage. Operations that are not included in either the Transportation and Terminaling or the Storage segments are included in Corporate. The Partnership does not have any foreign operations.

The Partnership’s Transportation and Terminaling segment consists of operating segments that include product terminals, pipelines, crude unloading facilities and other facilities capable of transporting and handling crude oil, refined products and natural gas. The Partnership’s Storage segment consists of operating segments that include storage and other facilities capable of processing crude oil and handling crude oil, refined products and intermediates.

Revenue is generated from third-party transactions as well as commercial agreements entered into with PBF Holding under which the Partnership receives fees for transportation, terminaling, storage and processing services. The commercial agreements with PBF Holding are described in Note 10 “Related Party Transactions” of the Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements. Certain general and administrative expenses and interest and financing costs are included in Corporate as they are not directly attributable to a specific reporting segment. Identifiable assets are those used by the operating segments, whereas assets included in Corporate are principally cash, deposits and other assets that are not associated with operations.

Item 2. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations

You should read the following discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations together with the unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements and the notes thereto included elsewhere in this Form 10-Q. The following information and such unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements should also be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements and related notes, together with our discussion and analysis of financial condition and results of operations in our 2021 Form 10-K. This discussion contains forward-looking statements that are based on management’s current expectations, estimates and projections about our business and operations. The cautionary statements made in this Form 10-Q should be read as applying to all related forward-looking statements wherever they appear in this Form 10-Q. Our actual results may differ materially from those currently anticipated and expressed in such forward-looking statements as a result of a number of factors. You should read “Risk Factors” in our 2021 Form 10-K and “Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements” in this Form 10-Q. In this Item 2, all references to “we,” “us,” “our,” the “Partnership,” “PBFX” or similar terms for periods prior to the effective dates of each of the Acquisitions from PBF (as defined below) refer to the Predecessor. For periods subsequent to the effective dates of each of the Acquisitions from PBF, these terms refer to the Partnership and its subsidiaries.

Overview

We are a fee-based, growth-oriented, Delaware MLP formed in February 2013 by subsidiaries of PBF Energy to own or lease, operate, develop and acquire crude oil and refined petroleum products terminals, pipelines, storage facilities and similar logistics assets. PBF GP is our general partner and is wholly-owned by PBF LLC. PBF Energy is the sole managing member of PBF LLC and, as of March 31, 2022, owned 99.2% of the total economic interest in PBF LLC. As of March 31, 2022, PBF LLC owned 29,953,631 PBFX common units constituting an aggregate of 47.9% limited partner interest in PBFX, with the remaining 52.1% limited partner interest owned by public unitholders.

Our business includes the assets, liabilities and results of operations of certain crude oil, refined products, natural gas and intermediates terminaling, pipeline, storage and processing assets, including those previously operated and owned by PBF Holding’s subsidiaries and PBF Holding’s previously held subsidiaries.

Principles of Combination and Consolidation and Basis of Presentation

In general, our Predecessor did not historically operate its assets for the purpose of generating revenue independent of other PBF Energy businesses that we support. In connection with, and subsequent to, our initial public offering (“IPO”), we have acquired certain assets from PBF LLC (collectively referred to as the “Contributed Assets”). Such acquisitions completed subsequent to the IPO were made through a series of dropdown transactions with PBF LLC (collectively referred to as the “Acquisitions from PBF”). Upon the closing of the IPO and the Acquisitions from PBF, we entered into commercial and service agreements with subsidiaries of PBF Energy, under which we operate our assets for the purpose of generating fee-based revenue. We receive, handle and transfer crude oil, refined products and natural gas from sources located throughout the U.S. and Canada and store crude oil, refined products and intermediates for PBF Energy in support of its refineries. In addition, we generate third-party revenue from certain of our assets.

Agreements with PBF Energy Entities

Commercial Agreements

We currently derive a majority of our revenue from long-term, fee-based agreements with PBF Holding, which generally include minimum volume commitment (“MVC”) stipulations and contractual fee escalations for inflation adjustments and certain increases in operating costs. We believe the terms and conditions under these agreements, as well as the Omnibus Agreement and the Services Agreement (each as defined below), each with PBF Holding, are generally no less favorable to either party than those that could have been negotiated with unaffiliated parties with respect to similar services.

Refer to our 2021 Form 10-K and Note 10 “Related Party Transactions” of the Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements included in “Item 1. Financial Statements” in this Form 10-Q for a more complete description of our commercial agreements with PBF Holding, including those identified as leases.

Other Agreements

In addition to the commercial agreements described above, we entered into an omnibus agreement with PBF GP, PBF LLC and PBF Holding, which has been amended and restated in connection with certain of the Acquisitions from PBF (as amended, the “Omnibus Agreement”). This agreement addresses the payment of an annual fee for the provision of various general and administrative services and reimbursement of salary and benefit costs for certain PBF Energy employees.

We have also entered into an operation and management services and secondment agreement with PBF Holding and certain of its subsidiaries (as amended, the “Services Agreement”), pursuant to which PBF Holding and its subsidiaries provide us with the personnel necessary for us to perform our obligations under our commercial agreements. We reimburse PBF Holding for the use of such employees and the provision of certain infrastructure-related services to the extent applicable to our operations. The Services Agreement will terminate upon the termination of the Omnibus Agreement, provided that we may terminate any service upon 30-days’ notice.

Refer to our 2021 Form 10-K for a more complete description of the Omnibus Agreement and the Services Agreement.

Factors Affecting the Comparability of Our Financial Results

Our results of operations may not be comparable to our historical results of operations due to certain debt transactions and our annual inflation adjustment to our commercial agreements.

Other Factors That Will Significantly Affect Our Results

Supply and Demand for Crude Oil, Refined Products and Natural Gas. We generate revenue by charging fees for receiving, handling, transferring, storing, throughputting and processing crude oil, refined products and natural gas. A majority of our revenue is derived from MVC, fee-based commercial agreements with subsidiaries of PBF Energy with initial terms ranging from one to fifteen years, which enhance the stability of our cash flows. The volume of crude oil, refined products and natural gas that is throughput or stored depends substantially on PBF Energy’s operational needs which are largely impacted by refining margins. Refining margins are greatly dependent upon the price of crude oil or other refinery feedstocks, refined products and natural gas.


25


Factors driving the prices of petroleum-based commodities include supply and demand for crude oil, gasoline and other refined products. Supply and demand for these products depend on numerous factors outside of our control, including changes in domestic and foreign economies, weather conditions, domestic and foreign political affairs, production levels, logistics constraints, availability of imports, marketing of competitive fuels, crude oil price differentials and government regulation. Refer to “Risk Factors” included in “Item 1A.” of our 2021 Form 10-K.

Acquisition and Organic Growth Opportunities. We may acquire additional logistics assets from PBF Energy or third parties. Under our Omnibus Agreement, subject to certain exceptions, we have a right of first offer on certain logistics assets owned by PBF Energy to the extent PBF Energy decides to sell, transfer or otherwise dispose of any of those assets. We also have a right of first offer to acquire additional logistics assets that PBF Energy may construct or acquire in the future. Our commercial agreements provide us with options to purchase certain assets at PBF Holding’s refineries related to our business in the event PBF Energy permanently shuts down PBF Holding’s refineries. In addition, our commercial agreements provide us with the right to use certain assets at PBF Holding’s refineries in the event of a temporary shutdown. Furthermore, we may pursue strategic asset acquisitions from third parties or organic growth projects to the extent such acquisitions or projects complement our or PBF Energy’s existing asset base or provide attractive potential returns. Identifying and executing acquisitions and organic growth projects is a key part of our strategy, and we believe that we are well-positioned to acquire logistics assets from PBF Energy and third parties should such opportunities arise. However, there is no guarantee that we will be able to identify attractive organic growth projects or acquisitions in the future, or be able to consummate any such opportunities identified. Additionally, if we do not complete acquisitions or organic growth projects on economically acceptable terms, our future growth will be limited, and the acquisitions or projects we do complete may reduce, rather than increase, our cash available for distribution. These acquisitions and organic growth projects could also affect the comparability of our results from period to period. We expect to fund future growth capital expenditures primarily from a combination of cash-on-hand, borrowings under our $500.0 million amended and restated revolving credit facility (as amended, the “Revolving Credit Facility”) and the issuance of additional equity or debt securities. To the extent we issue additional units to fund future acquisitions or expansion capital expenditures, the payments of distributions on those additional units may increase the risk that we will be unable to maintain or increase our per unit distribution level.

Third-Party Business. As of March 31, 2022, PBF Holding accounts for a substantial majority of our revenue and we continue to expect that a majority of our revenue for the foreseeable future will be derived from operations supporting PBF Holding’s refineries. We continue to explore further diversification of our customer base by potentially developing additional third-party throughput volumes in our existing system and continuing to explore expanding our asset portfolio to service third-party customers. Unless we are successful in attracting additional third-party customers, our ability to increase volumes will be dependent on PBF Holding, which has no obligation under our commercial agreements to supply our facilities with additional volumes in excess of its MVCs. If we are unable to increase throughput or storage volumes, future growth may be limited.

How We Evaluate Our Operations

Our management uses a variety of financial and operating metrics to analyze our business and segment performance. These metrics are significant factors in assessing our operating results and profitability and include, but are not limited to, volumes, including terminal and pipeline throughput and storage capacity; operating and maintenance expenses; and EBITDA, EBITDA attributable to PBFX, Adjusted EBITDA and distributable cash flow. We define EBITDA, EBITDA attributable to PBFX, Adjusted EBITDA and distributable cash flow below.


26


Volumes. The amount of revenue we generate primarily depends on the volumes of crude oil, refined products and natural gas that we throughput at our terminaling and pipeline operations and our available and utilized storage capacity. These volumes are primarily affected by the supply of and demand for crude oil, refined products and natural gas in the markets served directly or indirectly by our assets. Although PBF Energy has MVCs under certain commercial agreements, our results of operations will be impacted by:
PBF Energy’s utilization of our assets in excess of MVCs;
our ability to identify and execute accretive acquisitions and organic expansion projects and capture incremental PBF Energy or third-party volumes; and
our ability to increase throughput or storage volumes at our facilities and provide additional ancillary services at those terminals and pipelines.

Operating and Maintenance Expenses. Our management seeks to maximize the profitability of our operations by effectively managing operating and maintenance expenses. These expenses are comprised primarily of labor and outside contractor costs, utilities, insurance premiums, repairs and maintenance charges and related property taxes. These expenses generally remain relatively stable across broad ranges of throughput volumes but can fluctuate from period to period depending on the mix of activities performed during that period and the timing of these expenses. We will seek to manage our maintenance expenditures on our assets by scheduling maintenance over time to avoid significant variability in our maintenance expenditures and to minimize their impact on our cash flow.

EBITDA, EBITDA Attributable to PBFX, Adjusted EBITDA and Distributable Cash Flow. We define EBITDA as net income (loss) before net interest expense (including amortization of loan fees and debt premium and accretion on discounted liabilities), income tax expense, depreciation, amortization and change in contingent consideration. We define EBITDA attributable to PBFX as net income (loss) attributable to PBFX before net interest expense (including amortization of loan fees and debt premium and accretion on discounted liabilities), income tax expense, depreciation, amortization and change in contingent consideration attributable to PBFX, which excludes the results of Acquisitions from PBF prior to the effective dates of such transactions and earnings attributable to the CPI Operations LLC (“CPI”) earn-out (the portion of earnings associated with an earn-out provision related to the purchase of CPI). We define Adjusted EBITDA as EBITDA attributable to PBFX excluding acquisition and transaction costs, non-cash unit-based compensation expense and items that meet the conditions of unusual, infrequent and/or non-recurring charges. We define distributable cash flow as EBITDA attributable to PBFX plus non-cash unit-based compensation expense, less cash interest, maintenance capital expenditures attributable to PBFX and income taxes. Distributable cash flow will not reflect changes in working capital balances. EBITDA, EBITDA attributable to PBFX, Adjusted EBITDA and distributable cash flow are not presentations made in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”).

EBITDA, EBITDA attributable to PBFX, Adjusted EBITDA and distributable cash flow are non-GAAP supplemental financial measures that management and external users of our condensed consolidated financial statements, such as industry analysts, investors, lenders and rating agencies, may use to assess:
our operating performance as compared to other publicly traded partnerships in the midstream energy industry, without regard to historical cost basis or, in the case of EBITDA, 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 economic returns on various investment opportunities.


27


We believe that the presentation of EBITDA, EBITDA attributable to PBFX and Adjusted EBITDA provides useful information to investors in assessing our financial condition and results of operations and assists in evaluating our ongoing operating performance for current and comparative periods. We believe that the presentation of distributable cash flow provides useful information to investors as it is a widely accepted financial indicator used by investors to compare partnership performance and provides investors with another perspective of the operating performance of our assets and the cash our business is generating. EBITDA, EBITDA attributable to PBFX, Adjusted EBITDA and distributable cash flow should not be considered alternatives to net income, income from operations, net cash provided by operating activities or any other measure of financial performance or liquidity presented in accordance with GAAP. EBITDA, EBITDA attributable to PBFX, Adjusted EBITDA and distributable cash flow have important limitations as analytical tools because they exclude some, but not all, items that affect net income and net cash provided by operating activities. Additionally, because EBITDA, EBITDA attributable to PBFX, Adjusted EBITDA and distributable cash flow may be defined differently by other companies in our industry, our definitions of such measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies, thereby diminishing their utility. EBITDA, EBITDA attributable to PBFX, Adjusted EBITDA and distributable cash flow are reconciled to net income and net cash provided by operating activities in “Results of Operations” below.

Three Months Ended March 31, 2022 Compared to the Three Months Ended March 31, 2021

Summary

Our net income for the three months ended March 31, 2022 decreased by approximately $1.0 million to $36.3 million from $37.2 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021. The decrease in net income was primarily due to the following:
an increase in operating and maintenance expenses of approximately $4.4 million, or 17.4%, as a result of higher utilities costs due to increased energy rates and usage, higher additive costs and higher outside services and other fees coinciding with increased throughput at certain of our assets;
offset by the following:
an increase in total revenue of approximately $1.9 million, or 2.2%, primarily attributable to inflation rate adjustments implemented in accordance with certain of our commercial agreements (the “Inflation Rate Increase”), higher revenues at our East Coast storage facility related to increased affiliate activity, as well as the implementation of an MVC under a third-party customer contract, higher pass-through utilities costs, and increased throughput at certain of our assets, offset by the commencement of a new commercial agreement with a reduced MVC at our Delaware City rail facility;
a decrease in general and administrative expenses of approximately $0.6 million, or 12.4%, due to decreased unit-based compensation expense;
a decrease in other expenses of approximately $0.6 million, or 5.5%, primarily related to a decrease in interest expense as a result of lower borrowings under our Revolving Credit Facility; and
a decrease in change in contingent consideration of approximately $0.4 million, or 63.7%, due to lower current period adjustments to management’s estimates regarding the underlying earn-out provision.

Depreciation and amortization was relatively consistent during the comparative periods with no significant fluctuation activity.


31


EBITDA attributable to PBFX for the three months ended March 31, 2022 decreased by approximately $2.1 million to $55.9 million from $57.9 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021 due to the factors noted above, excluding the impact of depreciation and amortization, interest expense, net, amortization of loan fees and debt premium, accretion on discounted liabilities, change in contingent consideration and earnings attributable to the CPI earn-out.

Adjusted EBITDA for the three months ended March 31, 2022 decreased by approximately $2.4 million to $56.6 million from $59.0 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021 due to the factors noted above, excluding the impact of unit-based compensation and certain environmental remediation costs.



32


Segment Information

Our operations are comprised of operating segments, which are strategic business units that offer different services in various geographical locations. We review operations in two reportable segments: (i) Transportation and Terminaling and (ii) Storage. Decisions concerning the allocation of resources and assessment of operating performance are made based on this segmentation. Management measures the operating performance of each of our reportable segments based on the segment operating income. Segment operating income is defined as net revenue less operating expenses, depreciation and amortization and change in contingent consideration. General and administrative expenses and interest expenses not included in the Transportation and Terminaling and Storage segments are included in Corporate. Segment reporting is further discussed in Note 11 “Segment Information” of the Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements included in “Item 1. Financial Statements.”

Transportation and Terminaling Segment

Three Months Ended March 31, 2022 Compared to the Three Months Ended March 31, 2021

Our Transportation and Terminaling operating income for the three months ended March 31, 2022 decreased by approximately $4.5 million to $42.1 million from $46.6 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021. The decrease in operating income was primarily due to the following:
an increase in operating and maintenance expenses of approximately $3.1 million, or 17.6%, as a result of higher utilities costs due to increased energy rates and usage, higher additive costs and higher outside services and other fees coinciding with increased throughput at certain of our assets;
a decrease in total revenue of approximately $1.2 million, or 1.7%, primarily attributable to the commencement of a new commercial agreement with a reduced MVC at our Delaware City rail facility, offset by the Inflation Rate Increase, higher pass-through utilities costs and increased throughput at certain of our assets; and
an increase in depreciation and amortization of approximately $0.2 million, or 2.7%, related to the timing of assets being placed in service.

34


Three Months Ended March 31, 2022 Compared to the Three Months Ended March 31, 2021

Our Storage operating income for the three months ended March 31, 2022 increased by approximately $2.4 million to $8.2 million from $5.8 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021. The increase in operating income was primarily due to the following:
an increase in total revenue of approximately $3.2 million, or 19.8%, primarily attributable to the Inflation Rate Increase and higher revenues at our East Coast storage facility related to increased affiliate activity, as well as the implementation of an MVC under a third-party customer contract;
a decrease in change in contingent consideration of approximately $0.4 million, or 63.7%, due to lower current period adjustments to management’s estimates regarding the underlying earn-out provision; and
a decrease in depreciation and amortization of approximately $0.1 million, or 5.3%, related to the timing of assets being placed in service;
offset by the following:
an increase in operating and maintenance expenses of approximately $1.3 million, or 17.0%, due to higher utilities costs due to increased energy rates and usage.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

We expect our ongoing sources of liquidity to include cash generated from operations (including proceeds from our commercial agreements with PBF Holding), borrowings under our Revolving Credit Facility and issuances of additional debt and equity securities as appropriate given market conditions. We believe our balances of cash, cash equivalents, cash generated from operations, borrowings under the Revolving Credit Facility and potential issuances of debt and equity securities will be sufficient to satisfy cash requirements over the next twelve months and beyond.

Our largest customer is our affiliate, PBF Holding, a subsidiary of our parent sponsor. PBF Energy has initiated several steps as part of a strategic plan to navigate current volatile markets and preserve or enhance its liquidity, including asset sales, new debt issuances, temporarily idling various units at certain refineries to optimize production, reductions in capital and operating expenditures, suspension of its dividend and exploring other potential opportunistic financing activities. We believe such actions will allow PBF Energy to continue to honor its commercial agreements with us.

We have paid, and intend to continue to pay, at least the minimum quarterly distribution of $0.30 per unit per quarter, or $1.20 per unit on an annualized basis, which aggregates to approximately $19.0 million per quarter or approximately $76.0 million on an annualized basis, based on the number of common units outstanding as of March 31, 2022.

As of March 31, 2022, we had approximately $474.8 million of liquidity, including approximately $53.3 million in cash and cash equivalents, and access to approximately $421.5 million under our Revolving Credit Facility.

Credit Facilities

The Revolving Credit Facility is available to fund working capital, acquisitions, distributions and capital expenditures and for other general partnership purposes. We have the ability to increase the maximum amount of the Revolving Credit Facility by an aggregate amount of up to $250.0 million, to a total facility size of $750.0 million, subject to receiving increased commitments from the lenders or other financial institutions and satisfaction of certain conditions. Obligations under the Revolving Credit Facility are guaranteed by our restricted subsidiaries and secured by a first priority lien on our assets and those of our restricted subsidiaries. The maturity date of the Revolving Credit Facility is July 30, 2023 and may be extended for one year on up to two occasions, subject to certain customary terms and conditions. We are in compliance with the covenants under the Revolving Credit Facility as of March 31, 2022.

During the three months ended March 31, 2022, we made net repayments of $25.0 million under the Revolving Credit Facility.

Our 6.875% Senior Notes due 2023 (the “2023 Notes”) have an aggregate principal amount of $525.0 million with interest payable semi-annually on May 15 and November 15. The 2023 Notes mature on May 15, 2023. The 2023 Notes contain customary terms, events of default and covenants for an issuer of non-investment grade debt securities. These covenants include limitations or restrictions on us and our restricted subsidiaries’ ability to, among other things, make distributions. These covenants are subject to a number of important limitations and exceptions. As of March 31, 2022, we are in compliance with all covenants under the 2023 Notes.

Cash Flows

The following table sets forth our cash flows for the periods indicated:
Three Months Ended March 31,
 20222021
 (In thousands)
Net cash provided by operating activities$67,322 $54,822 
Net cash used in investing activities(1,433)(1,254)
Net cash used in financing activities(46,464)(45,886)
Net change in cash and cash equivalents$19,425 $7,682

Cash Flows from Operating Activities

Net cash provided by operating activities increased by approximately $12.5 million to $67.3 million for the three months ended March 31, 2022 compared to $54.8 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021. The increase in net cash provided by operating activities was primarily the result of an increase in the net changes in operating assets and liabilities of approximately $14.1 million primarily driven by the timing of collection of accounts receivables and liability payments, offset by a net decrease in non-cash charges relating to depreciation and amortization, amortization of loan fees and debt premium, accretion on discounted liabilities, unit-based compensation and change in contingent consideration of approximately $0.7 million and a decrease in net income of approximately $1.0 million.

Cash Flows from Investing Activities

Net cash used in investing activities increased by approximately $0.2 million to $1.4 million for the three months ended March 31, 2022 compared to $1.3 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021. The increase in net cash used in investing activities was due to an increase in capital expenditures of approximately $0.2 million resulting from the timing of capital projects.

Cash Flows from Financing Activities

Net cash used in financing activities increased by approximately $0.6 million to $46.5 million for the three months ended March 31, 2022 compared to $45.9 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021. Net cash used in financing activities for the three months ended March 31, 2022 consisted of net repayments of $25.0 million under our Revolving Credit Facility, distributions to unitholders of $18.8 million and a $2.7 million payment of contingent consideration. Net cash used in financing activities for the three months ended March 31, 2021 consisted of distributions to unitholders of $18.7 million, net repayments of $15.0 million under our Revolving Credit Facility and a $12.2 million payment of contingent consideration.

Capital Expenditures

Our capital requirements have consisted of, and are expected to continue to consist of: expansion, maintenance and regulatory capital expenditures. Expansion capital expenditures are expenditures incurred for acquisitions or capital improvements that we expect will increase our operating income or operating capacity over the long term. Examples of expansion capital expenditures include the acquisition of assets, the construction, development or acquisition of equipment at our facilities or projects that provide additional throughput or storage capacity to the extent such capital expenditures are expected to expand our operating capacity or increase our operating income. Maintenance capital expenditures are expenditures (including expenditures for the addition or improvement to, or the replacement of, our capital assets, and for the acquisition of existing, or the construction or development of new, capital assets) made to maintain our long-term operating income or operating capacity. Examples of maintenance capital expenditures are expenditures for the refurbishment and replacement of our transportation, terminaling, storage and processing assets and to maintain equipment reliability, integrity and safety. Regulatory capital expenditures are expenditures made to attain or maintain compliance with regulatory standards (including in response to the potential impacts of climate change). Examples of regulatory capital expenditures are expenditures incurred to address environmental laws or regulations.

Capital expenditures for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021 were as follows:
Three Months Ended March 31,
20222021
(In thousands)
Expansion$184 $555 
Maintenance1,060 388 
Regulatory189 311 
Total capital expenditures$1,433 $1,254 

We currently expect to spend approximately $18.0 million to $23.0 million for the remainder of 2022 for capital expenditures. Of the total expected remaining capital expenditures, approximately $10.0 million to $14.0 million relate to maintenance capital expenditures. We anticipate the forecasted maintenance capital expenditures will be funded primarily with cash from operations and through borrowings under the Revolving Credit Facility as needed. We currently have not included any potential future acquisitions in our forecasted capital expenditures for the remainder of 2022. We may rely on external sources including incremental borrowings under the Revolving Credit Facility and issuances of equity and debt securities to fund any significant future expansion.

Material Cash Requirements

With the exception of activity under the Revolving Credit Facility, there have been no significant changes in our material cash requirements (including known contractual and other obligations) since those reported in our 2021 Form 10-K. Refer to Note 6 “Debt” of the Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements included in “Item 1. Financial Statements” for additional information regarding our debt obligations.

Other

We have not entered into any transactions, agreements or other contractual arrangements that would result in off-balance sheet liabilities, other than outstanding letters of credit in the amount of $3.5 million.

Environmental and Other Matters

Environmental Regulations

Our operations are subject to extensive and frequently changing federal, state and local laws, regulations and ordinances relating to the protection of the environment. Among other things, these laws and regulations govern the emission or discharge of pollutants into or onto the land, air and water, the handling and disposal of solid and hazardous wastes and the remediation of contamination. As with the industry generally, compliance with existing and anticipated environmental laws and regulations increases our overall cost of business, including our capital costs to develop, maintain, operate and upgrade equipment and facilities. While these laws and regulations affect our maintenance and regulatory capital expenditures and net income, we believe they do not necessarily affect our competitive position, as the operations of our competitors are similarly affected. We believe our facilities are in substantial compliance with applicable environmental laws and regulations. However, these laws and regulations, as well as the interpretation of such laws and regulations, are subject to changes by regulatory authorities, and continued and future compliance with such laws and regulations may require us to incur significant expenditures. Additionally, violation of environmental laws, regulations and permits can result in the imposition of significant administrative, civil and criminal penalties, injunctions limiting our operations, investigatory or remedial liabilities or construction bans or delays in the development of additional facilities or equipment. Furthermore, a release of hydrocarbons or hazardous substances into the environment could, to the extent the event is not insured, subject us to substantial expenses, including costs to comply with applicable laws and regulations and to resolve claims by third parties for personal injury or property damage or by the U.S. federal government or state governments for natural resources damages. These impacts could directly and indirectly affect our business and have an adverse impact on our financial position, results of operations and liquidity. We cannot currently determine the amounts of such future impacts.

Environmental Liabilities

Contaminations resulting from spills of crude oil or petroleum products are not unusual within the petroleum terminaling or transportation industries, and, historically, spills at truck and rail racks and terminals have resulted in contamination of the environment, including soils and groundwater.

Pursuant to the contribution agreements entered into in connection with the IPO and the Acquisitions from PBF, PBF Energy has agreed to indemnify us for certain known and unknown environmental liabilities that are based on conditions in existence at our Predecessor’s properties and associated with the ownership or operation of the Contributed Assets and arising from the conditions that existed prior to the closings of the IPO and the Acquisitions from PBF. In addition, we have agreed to indemnify PBF Energy for (i) certain events and conditions associated with the ownership or operation of our assets that occur, as applicable, after the closing of each Acquisition from PBF (including the IPO) and (ii) environmental liabilities related to our assets if the environmental liability is the result of the negligence, willful misconduct or criminal conduct of us or our employees, including those seconded to us. As a result, we may incur environmental expenses in the future, which may be substantial.

As of March 31, 2022, we have recorded a total liability related to environmental remediation costs of $1.9 million related to existing environmental liabilities. Refer to Note 9 “Commitments and Contingencies” of the Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements included in “Item 1. Financial Statements” for additional information.

Supplemental Guarantor Financial Information

The following consolidated subsidiaries serve as guarantors of the obligations under the 2023 Notes:
Delaware City Logistics Company LLC;
Delaware Pipeline Company LLC;
Delaware City Terminaling Company LLC;
Toledo Terminaling Company LLC;
PBF Logistics Products Terminals LLC;
PBFX Operating Company LLC;
Torrance Valley Pipeline Company LLC;
Paulsboro Natural Gas Pipeline Company LLC;
Toledo Rail Logistics Company LLC;
Chalmette Logistics Company LLC;
Paulsboro Terminaling Company LLC;
DCR Storage and Loading Company LLC;
CPI Operations LLC; and
PBFX Ace Holdings LLC.

These guarantees are full and unconditional and joint and several.

PBF Logistics LP serves as “Issuer,” with PBF Logistics Finance Corporation (“PBF Finance”) as “Co-Issuer.” The indenture dated May 12, 2015, as supplemented, among us, PBF Finance, the guarantors party thereto and Deutsche Bank Trust Company Americas, as Trustee, governs subsidiaries designated as “Guarantor Subsidiaries.”

In addition, PBF LLC provides a limited guarantee of collection of the principal amount of the 2023 Notes but is not otherwise subject to restrictions included in the indenture. Refer to PBF LLC’s condensed consolidated financial statements, which are included in the combined Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the period ended March 31, 2022 filed by PBF LLC and PBF Energy.

The Co-Issuer has no independent assets or operations, and we do not have any subsidiaries designated as “Non-Guarantor Subsidiaries.” As such, the consolidated results of the Issuer and Guarantor Subsidiaries are reflected in our Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements included in “Item 1. Financial Statements.”

Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk

Market risk is the risk of loss arising from adverse changes in market rates and prices. We have minimal direct exposure to risks associated with fluctuating commodity prices because we do not generally own the crude oil, refined products or natural gas that is distributed through our facilities, and because all of our commercial agreements with PBF Energy require PBF Energy to bear the risk of any material volume loss relating to the services we provide.

We experience modest volume gains and losses, which we sometimes refer to as imbalances, through the operations of our assets as a result of variances in tank storage meter readings and volume fluctuations within certain of our terminals. We use a year-to-date weighted-average market price to value our assets and liabilities related to product imbalances. For the three months ended March 31, 2022, the impact from our imbalances was not material to our results. In practice, we expect to settle positive refined product imbalances at the end of each year by selling excess volumes at current market prices. We may be required to purchase refined product volumes in the open market to make up negative imbalances or settle through cash payments.

Debt that we incur under the Revolving Credit Facility bears interest at a variable rate and exposes us to interest rate risk. At March 31, 2022, we had $75.0 million outstanding in variable interest debt. A 1.0% change in the interest rate associated with the borrowings outstanding under this facility would result in a $3.9 million change in our interest expense, assuming we were to borrow all $500.0 million available under the Revolving Credit Facility.

We continually monitor our market risk exposure, particularly in times of elevated volatility in the financial markets. In response to adverse market conditions, we can take steps to mitigate potential adverse impacts on our business and operations by limiting capital expenditures, reducing discretionary activities and third-party services and lowering our quarterly distribution to, or maintaining our quarterly distribution at, our minimum quarterly distribution of $0.30 per unit. Such measures can serve to build our cash flow coverage, de-lever our business and increase our financial resources, while allowing us to continue to identify potential organic growth projects or strate
