Sunoco Logistics Partners L.P. Increases Distribution and Reports

Earnings for Fourth Quarter 2010

PHILADELPHIA, January 27, 2011 – Sunoco Logistics Partners L.P. (NYSE: SXL) (the “Partnership”) today announced net income attributable to owners for the fourth quarter 2010 of $59 million ($1.42 per unit diluted), compared with $54 million ($1.30 per unit diluted) for the fourth quarter 2009. Highlights of the fourth quarter 2010 include:



Distributable cash flow of $69 million for the quarter compared to $50 million for the prior year period



Recognized contango inventory profits of approximately $10 million in the fourth quarter 2010



Finished 2010 with a Debt to EBITDA ratio of 3.4x

Sunoco Partners LLC, the general partner of the Partnership, declared a cash distribution for the fourth quarter 2010 of $1.18 per limited partnership unit ($4.72 annualized) to be paid on February 14, 2011 to unitholders of record on February 8, 2011. This represents the twenty-third consecutive quarterly distribution increase and provides 1.4 times coverage of the quarterly cash distribution.

“2010 was a record year for Sunoco Logistics,” said Lynn L. Elsenhans, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “We set all-time highs in capital investment and EBITDA generation. Excluding market-related earnings, our ratable EBITDA was up approximately 15 % versus 2009. This is a reflection of our continuing organic growth program, recent acquisitions, and our strong operating base.”

“Entering 2011, we continue to build upon our diverse asset base with near-term emphasis on expanding our marketing terminal blending services and working toward optimizing our assets in the Marcellus Shale region with Project Mariner. We are projecting $100 to $150 million for our 2011 expansion capital program, excluding major projects and acquisitions, and we expect $45 million of maintenance capital spending. Our balance sheet remains strong and should provide the opportunity to grow beyond our base capital program.”
