WALTHAM, Mass. -- April 24, 2014

Global Partners LP (NYSE: GLP) today announced that Basin Transload, LLC, its
60% owned subsidiary, has executed a pipeline connection agreement with Tesoro
High Plains Pipeline Company LLC, a subsidiary of Tesoro Logistics LP,
(“Tesoro Logistics”) whereby Tesoro Logistics will build, own and operate a
new 4.1-mile pipeline lateral from its Dunn Center Station to Basin
Transload’s facility in Beulah, ND. Crude oil is expected to begin flowing to
the Beulah destination in the fourth quarter of 2014, enhancing the facility’s
ability to source product from a broader region. The Beulah facility includes
280,000 barrels of storage capacity and connects via direct long-haul service
to the West and Gulf Coasts via BNSF.

“Basin Transload’s agreement with Tesoro Logistics broadens the Beulah
facility’s access to energy production in North Dakota,” said Eric Slifka,
President and Chief Executive Officer of Global Partners. “The pipeline
connection will augment the volume of crude currently being transported from
the wellhead to Beulah. The addition of pipeline access enhances the
ratability of the terminal.”
