BP Midstream Partners LP (“BPMP” or the “Partnership”) today announced that the Board of Directors of BP Midstream Partners GP LLC, the general partner of the Partnership, declared a quarterly cash distribution of $0.3355 per unit for the third quarter of 2019. The distribution reflects an increase of 3.6% over the second quarter 2019 distribution per unit.
Commenting on the distribution increase, CEO Rip Zinsmeister said, “This new distribution level represents a year-to-date cumulative 11.3 percent increase. The continued delivery of organic growth across our portfolio so far this year underpins our confidence to raise the distribution again this quarter. BP Midstream Partners expects to deliver mid-teens distribution growth for unitholders in 2019 from our existing portfolio.”
The third quarter 2019 distribution will be payable on Nov. 14, 2019, to unitholders of record as of Oct. 31, 2019, with an ex-distribution date of Oct. 30, 2019.
