Energy Transfer Partners LP agreed to buy Sunoco Inc. for about $5.3 billion in units and cash, expanding ETP’s geographic reach and strengthening its presence in the transportation, storage and logistics of oil and gas.

The offer of $25 a share in cash and 0.56245 unit is valued at $50.13 per share, based on ETP’s closing price April 27.
