On February 1, 2021, MPLX GP LLC, a Delaware limited liability company and the general partner of MPLX LP (the “Partnership”), amended and restated the Fifth Amended and Restated Agreement of Limited Partnership of MPLX LP by executing the Sixth Amended and Restated Agreement of Limited Partnership of MPLX LP (the “Sixth Amended and Restated Partnership Agreement”). The Sixth Amended and Restated Partnership Agreement gives effect to: (i) the cancellation and elimination of the TexNew Mex Units in the Partnership (the “TexNew Mex Units”), all of which were held by a wholly owned subsidiary of Marathon Petroleum Corporation, a Delaware corporation and the owner of the general partner and majority limited partnership interests in the Partnership (“MPC”); and (ii) the reassignment of the Capital Account (as defined in the Sixth Amended and Restated Partnership Agreement) associated with or attributable to the TexNew Mex Units to the Capital Account associated with and attributable to the Special Limited Partner Interest in the Partnership held by the same wholly owned subsidiary of MPC.
The Sixth Amended and Restated Partnership Agreement was adopted to simplify and streamline the Partnership’s capital structure and to eliminate the requirement of the Partnership to pay cash distributions on the TexNew Mex Units.
The foregoing description is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Sixth Amended and Restated Partnership Agreement, which is filed as Exhibit 3.1 hereto and is incorporated herein by reference.
