HOUSTON, Aug. 18 -- Sunoco Logistics Partners LP, Philadelphia, has reached definitive agreements to acquire a 37.35% interest in Wilprise Pipeline Co. LLC and a 16.67% interest in Tri-States NGL Pipeline LLC from Williams Cos. Inc., Tulsa.

Total consideration for the interests in both pipelines is $26.5 million, with an additional $8.3 million payable based on volumes transported through 2006. The transactions are subject to purchase rights held by existing owners. Closing is expected within 90 days.

Tri-States is a 161-mile NGL pipeline with a capacity of 95 million b/d originating near Mobile Bay, Ala., and terminating at Kenner Junction near New Orleans. Tri-States transported 56 million b/d in 2002.

Wilprise, a 33-mile NGL pipeline with a capacity of 60 million b/d originating at Kenner Junction and terminating at Sorrento, La., transported 42 million b/d in 2002.
