On July 25, Shell USA, Inc. and Shell Midstream Partners, LP (SHLX) signed an agreement and plan of merger.
The transaction was anticipated closing in the fourth quarter of this year, subject to customary closing conditions. A subsidiary of Shell USA, as the holder of a majority of the outstanding SHLX common units, has delivered its consent to approve the transaction concurrently with the execution of the Merger Agreement.
On October 19, Shell USA completed the almost $1.96 billion acquisition of the master limited partnership.

A subsidiary of Shell USA has 269,457,304 SHLX common units or roughly 68.5% of SHLX common units.
SHLX's assets include interests in entities that own crude oil and refined products pipelines and terminals that serve as key infrastructure to transport onshore and offshore crude oil production to U.S. Gulf Coast and Midwest refining markets. They convey refined products from those markets to major demand centers, as well as storage tanks and financing receivables that are secured by pipelines, storage tanks, docks, trucks, rail racks, and other infrastructure used to stage and transfer intermediate and finished products.
