Blueknight Energy Partners LP said it struck deals to sell, for a total of $162 million, assets tied to storing or moving crude oil.
Blueknight said Enbridge Inc. agreed to pay $132 million for its crude oil terminalling unit, which includes about 6.6 million barrels of crude oil storage in Cushing, Okla.
CVR Energy Inc. will pay $20 million for Blueknight's oil linefill and inventory business, which includes 604 miles of crude oil pipelines.
Blueknight also agreed to sell its oil-trucking business, but didn't disclose a buyer.
The deals will help Blueknight transition away "from traditional oil and gas operations into a pure-play, downstream terminalling business focused on infrastructure and transportation end markets," Chief Executive Andrew Woodward said.
