GENESIS ENERGY, L.P.
NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

1. Organization and Basis of Presentation and Consolidation
Organization
    We are a growth-oriented master limited partnership formed in Delaware in 1996 and focused on the midstream segment of the crude oil and natural gas industry as well as the production of natural soda ash. Our operations are located primarily in the Gulf Coast region of the United States, Wyoming, and the Gulf of Mexico. We provide an integrated suite of services to refiners, crude oil and natural gas producers, and industrial and commercial enterprises and have a diverse portfolio of assets, including pipelines, offshore hub and junction platforms, our trona and trona-based exploring, mining, processing, producing, marketing, and selling business based in Wyoming (our "Alkali Business"), refinery-related plants, storage tanks and terminals, railcars, rail unloading facilities, barges and other vessels, and trucks. We are owned 100% by our limited partners. Genesis Energy, LLC, our general partner, is a wholly-owned subsidiary. Our general partner has sole responsibility for conducting our business and managing our operations. We conduct our operations and own our operating assets through our subsidiaries and joint ventures.
    We currently manage our businesses through the following 4 divisions that constitute our reportable segments:
Offshore pipeline transportation and processing of crude oil and natural gas in the Gulf of Mexico;
Sodium minerals and sulfur services involving trona and trona-based exploring, mining, processing, producing, marketing and selling activities, as well as the processing of high sulfur (or "sour") gas streams for refineries to remove the sulfur, and selling the related by-product, sodium hydrosulfide (or "NaHS", commonly pronounced "nash");
Onshore facilities and transportation, which include the terminalling, blending, storing, marketing and transporting crude oil and petroleum products (primarily fuel oil, asphalt, and other heavy refined products); and
Marine transportation to provide waterborne transportation of petroleum products and crude oil throughout North America.
Basis of Presentation and Consolidation
    The accompanying Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements include Genesis Energy, L.P. and its subsidiaries, including our general partner, Genesis Energy, LLC.
    Our results of operations for the interim periods shown in this report are not necessarily indicative of results to be expected for the fiscal year. The Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements included herein have been prepared by us without audit pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC"). Accordingly, they reflect all adjustments (which consist solely of normal recurring adjustments) that are, in the opinion of management, necessary for a fair presentation of the financial results for interim periods. Certain information and notes normally included in annual financial statements prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") have been condensed or omitted pursuant to such rules and regulations. However, we believe that the disclosures are adequate to make the information presented not misleading when read in conjunction with the information contained in the periodic reports we file with the SEC pursuant to the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, including the Consolidated Financial Statements and notes thereto included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2020 (our "Annual Report").
    Except per unit amounts, or as noted within the context of each footnote disclosure, the dollar amounts presented in the tabular data within these footnote disclosures are stated in thousands of dollars.
Covid-19 and Market Update
    In March 2020, the World Health Organization categorized Covid-19 as a pandemic, and the President of the United States declared the Covid-19 outbreak a national emergency. As further discussed in Item 2. Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations, the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic and the related economic, business and market disruptions continues to evolve and its future effects, including the severity and duration, remain uncertain.
We continue to monitor the market environment and will evaluate whether any triggering events would indicate possible impairments of long-lived assets, intangible assets and goodwill. Management’s estimates are based on numerous assumptions about future operations and market conditions, which we believe to be reasonable but are inherently uncertain. The uncertainties underlying our assumptions and estimates could differ significantly from actual results, including with respect to the duration and severity of the Covid-19 pandemic. In the current volatile economic environment and to the extent conditions
8

deteriorate, we may identify triggering events that may require future evaluations of the recoverability of the carrying value of our long-lived assets, intangible assets and goodwill, which could result in impairment charges that could be material to our results of operations.
2. Recent Accounting Developments
Recently Adopted
    During the first quarter of 2020, the SEC amended the financial disclosure requirements for guarantors and issuers of guaranteed securities registered or being registered in Rule 3-10 of Regulation S-X to go in effect January 4, 2021. The amendment simplifies the disclosure requirements and permits the amended disclosures to be provided outside the footnotes in audited annual or unaudited interim consolidated financial statements in all filings. As permitted by the amendment, we have early adopted the amendment and included the required summarized financial information in Item 2. Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations.
3. Revenue Recognition
Revenue from Contracts with Customers
The following tables reflect the disaggregation of our revenues by major category for the 2021 Quarter and the three months ended March 31, 2020 (the "2020 Quarter"), respectively:

    The Company recognizes revenue upon the satisfaction of its performance obligations under its contracts. The timing of revenue recognition varies for our different revenue streams. In general, the timing includes recognition of revenue over time as services are being performed as well as recognition of revenue at a point in time, for delivery of products.

Contract Assets and Liabilities
    The table below depicts our contract asset and liability balances at December 31, 2020 and March 31, 2021:

GENESIS ENERGY, L.P.
NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
Transaction Price Allocations to Remaining Performance Obligations
    We are required to disclose the amount of our transaction prices that are allocated to unsatisfied performance obligations as of March 31, 2021. We are exempted from disclosing performance obligations with a duration of one year or less, revenue recognized related to performance obligations where the consideration corresponds directly with the value provided to customers, and contracts with variable consideration that is allocated wholly to an unsatisfied performance obligation or promise to transfer a good or service that is part of a series in accordance with ASC 606.

    The majority of our contracts qualify for one of these expedients or exemptions. For the remaining contract types that involve revenue recognition over a long-term period with long-term fixed consideration (adjusted for indexing as required), we determined our allocations of transaction price that relate to unsatisfied performance obligations. For our tiered pricing offshore transportation contracts, we provide firm capacity for both fixed and variable consideration over a long term period. Therefore, we have allocated the remaining contract value to future periods.
    
    The following chart depicts how we expect to recognize revenues for future periods related to these contracts:

4. Lease Accounting
Lessee Arrangements
    We lease a variety of transportation equipment (including trucks, trailers, and railcars), terminals, land and facilities, and office space and equipment. Lease terms vary and can range from short term (under 12 months) to long term (greater than 12 months). A majority of our leases contain options to extend the life of the lease at our sole discretion. We considered these options when determining the lease terms used to derive our right of use asset and associated lease liability. Leases with a term of less than 12 months are not recorded on our Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets. Lease expenses are recognized on a straight line basis over the lease term.
    Our Right of Use Assets, net balance includes our unamortized initial direct costs associated with certain of our transportation equipment leases. Additionally, it includes our unamortized prepaid rents, our deferred rents, and our previously classified intangible asset associated with a favorable lease. Our lease liability includes our remaining provision for our cease-use provision for railcars no longer in use. Our short-term and long-term lease liabilities are recorded within "Accrued liabilities" and "Other long-term liabilities," respectively, on our Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets.
Lessor Arrangements
    We have the following contracts in which we act as a lessor. We also, from time to time, sublease certain of our transportation and facilities equipment to third parties.
Operating Leases
    During the 2021 Quarter and 2020 Quarter, we acted as a lessor in revenue contracts associated with the M/T American Phoenix, which is included in our marine transportation segment. During the 2020 Quarter, we acted as a lessor in our Free State pipeline system, which is included in our onshore facilities and transportation segment. These revenues are recorded within their respective segment's revenues in the Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations. Our lease revenues for these arrangements (inclusive of fixed and variable consideration) are reflected in the table below:

(1) We sold the Free State pipeline to a subsidiary of Denbury, Inc. ("Denbury") on October 30, 2020.

Direct Finance Lease
    We formerly held a direct finance lease of the Northeast Jackson Dome ("NEJD") Pipeline. Under the terms of the finance lease, we were paid a quarterly payment, which commenced in August 3, 2008. During the third quarter of 2020, our customer, Denbury, defaulted under the agreement. On October 30, 2020 we executed an agreement with our customer to accelerate the remaining principal payments on the previously owned NEJD direct financing lease, payable in 4 equal installments. During the period ending March 31, 2021, we collected $17.5 million and we have an outstanding receivable (included within "Accounts receivable- trade, net" on the Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets) of $52.5 million as of March 31, 2021 from Denbury for the remaining payments due in 2021 per the agreement. Additionally as part of this transaction, we transferred the ownership of all of our CO2 assets to Denbury, including the Free State pipeline system as noted previously.

Total$72,427 $99,877 

    Inventories are valued at the lower of cost or net realizable value. The net realizable value of inventories were recorded below cost by $0.4 million and $5.0 million as of March 31, 2021 and December 31, 2020, respectively, therefore we reduced the value of our inventory in our Unaudited Consolidated Financial Statements by these amounts.
Materials and supplies include chemicals, maintenance supplies, and spare parts which will be consumed in the mining of trona ore and production of soda ash processes.

Poseidon's Revolving Credit Facility
Borrowings under Poseidon’s revolving credit facility, which was amended and restated in March 2019, are primarily used to fund spending on capital projects. The March 2019 credit facility is non-recourse to Poseidon’s owners and secured by substantially all of Poseidon's assets and has a maturity date of March 2024. The March 2019 credit facility contains customary covenants such as restrictions on debt levels, liens, guarantees, mergers, sale of assets and distributions to owners. A breach of any of these covenants could result in acceleration of the maturity date of Poseidon’s debt. Poseidon was in compliance with the terms of its credit agreement for all periods presented in these Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements.

As of March 31, 2021, we were in compliance with the financial covenants contained in our credit agreement and senior unsecured notes indentures.
Senior Secured Credit Facility
At March 31, 2021, the key terms for rates under our $1.7 billion senior secured credit facility, which are dependent on our leverage ratio (as defined in the credit agreement), are as follows:
The interest rate on borrowings may be based on an alternate base rate or a Eurodollar rate, at our option. The alternate base rate is equal to the sum of (a) the greatest of (i) the prime rate as established by the administrative agent for the credit facility, (ii) the federal funds effective rate plus 0.5% of 1% and (iii) the LIBOR rate for a one-month maturity plus 1% and (b) the applicable margin. The Eurodollar rate is equal to the sum of (a) the LIBOR rate for the applicable interest period multiplied by the statutory reserve rate and (b) the applicable margin. The applicable margin varies from 1.75% to 3.50% on Eurodollar borrowings and from 0.75% to 2.50% on alternate base rate borrowings, depending on our leverage ratio. Our leverage ratio is recalculated quarterly and in connection with each material acquisition. At March 31, 2021, the applicable margins on our borrowings were 2.50% for alternate base rate borrowings and 3.50% for Eurodollar rate borrowings.
Letter of credit fee rates range from 1.75% to 3.50% based on our leverage ratio as computed under the credit facility. The rate can fluctuate quarterly. At March 31, 2021, our letter of credit rate was 3.50%.
We pay a commitment fee on the unused portion of the $1.7 billion maximum facility amount. The commitment fee rates on the unused committed amount will range from 0.25% to 0.50% per annum depending on our leverage ratio. At March 31, 2021, our commitment fee rate on the unused committed amount was 0.50%.
The accordion feature is $300.0 million, giving us the ability to expand the size of the facility to up to $2.0 billion for acquisitions or growth projects, subject to lender consent.
At March 31, 2021, we had $699.0 million borrowed under our $1.7 billion credit facility, with $13.0 million of the borrowed amount designated as a loan under the inventory sublimit. Our credit agreement allows up to $200.0 million of the capacity to be used for letters of credit, of which $1.3 million was outstanding at March 31, 2021. Due to the revolving nature of loans under our credit facility, additional borrowings and periodic repayments and re-borrowings may be made until the maturity date. The total amount available for borrowings under our existing credit facility at March 31, 2021 was $999.7 million, subject to compliance with covenants.
On April 8, 2021, we entered into an amended and restated credit facility agreement to, among other things, extend the term of our existing credit facility. Refer to Note 18 for additional details.

Senior Unsecured Note Transactions
On January 16, 2020, we issued $750 million in aggregate principal amount of our 7.75% senior unsecured notes due February 15, 2028 (the “2028 Notes”). Interest payments are due February 1 and August 1 of each year. That issuance generated net proceeds of $736.7 million, net of issuance costs incurred. We used $554.8 million of the net proceeds to redeem a portion of the 6.75% senior unsecured notes due August 1, 2022 (the "2022 Notes"), including principal, accrued interest and tender premium that were validly tendered, and the remaining net proceeds were used to repay a portion of the borrowings outstanding under our revolving credit facility. On January 17, 2020 we called for redemption the remaining $222.1 million of our 2022 Notes, and they were redeemed on February 16, 2020. We incurred a total loss of approximately $23.5 million relating to the extinguishment of our 2022 senior unsecured notes, inclusive of our transactions costs and the write-off of the related unamortized debt issuance costs and discount, which is recorded in "Other income (expense)" in our Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations for the 2020 Quarter.
On December 17, 2020, we issued $750 million in aggregate principal amount of our 8.00% senior unsecured notes due January 15, 2027 (the "2027 Notes"). Interest payments are due on January 15 and July 15 of each year with the initial interest payment due on July 15, 2021. The issuance generated net proceeds of approximately $737 million, net of issuance costs incurred. We used $316.5 million of the net proceeds to repay the portion of the 6.00% senior unsecured notes due May 15, 2023 (the "2023 Notes") (including principal, accrued interest and tender premium) that were validly tendered, and the remaining proceeds at the time were used to repay a portion of the borrowings outstanding under our revolving credit facility. On January 19, 2021, we redeemed the remaining principal balance outstanding on our 2023 Notes of $80.9 million in accordance with the terms and conditions of the indenture governing the 2023 Notes. We incurred a total loss of approximately $1.6 million relating to the extinguishment of our remaining 2023 senior unsecured notes, inclusive of the redemption fee and the write-off of the related unamortized debt issuance costs, which is recorded in "Other income (expense)" in our Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations for the 2021 Quarter.
On April 22, 2021 we completed our offering of an additional $250 million in aggregate principal amount of the 2027 Notes. The notes constitute an additional issuance of our existing 2027 Notes that we issued on December 17, 2020 in an aggregate principal amount of $750 million. The additional $250 million of notes have identical terms as (other than with respect to the issue price) and constitute part of the same series of the 2027 Notes we issued on December 17, 2020. The $250 million of the 2027 Notes were issued at a premium of 103.75% plus accrued interest from December 17, 2020. Refer to Note 18 for details around this additional offering.

Class A Convertible Preferred Units
At March 31, 2021 we had 25,336,778 Class A Convertible Preferred Units (our "Class A Convertible Preferred Units") outstanding. Our Class A Convertible Preferred Units rank senior to all of our currently outstanding classes or series of limited partner interests with respect to distribution and/or liquidation rights. Holders of our Class A Convertible Preferred Units vote on an as-converted basis with holders of our common units and have certain class voting rights, including with respect to any amendment to the partnership agreement that would adversely affect the rights, preferences or privileges, or otherwise modify the terms, of those Class A Convertible Preferred Units.    
Accounting for the Class A Convertible Preferred Units
    Our Class A Convertible Preferred Units are considered redeemable securities under GAAP due to the existence of redemption provisions upon a deemed liquidation event that is outside our control. Therefore, we present them as temporary equity in the mezzanine section of the Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets. Because our Class A Convertible Preferred Units are not currently redeemable and we do not have plans or expect any events that constitute a change of control in our partnership agreement, we present our Class A Convertible Preferred Units at their initial carrying amount. However, we would be required to adjust that carrying amount if it becomes probable that we would be required to redeem our Class A Convertible Preferred Units.
Initial and Subsequent Measurement
    We initially recognized our Class A Convertible Preferred Units at their issuance date fair value, net of issuance costs. We will not be required to adjust the carrying amount of our Class A Convertible Preferred Units until it becomes probable that they would become redeemable. Once redemption becomes probable, we would adjust the carrying amount of our Class A Convertible Preferred Units to the redemption value over a period of time comprising the date the feature first becomes probable and the date the units can first be redeemed. Our Class A Convertible Preferred Units contain a distribution Rate Reset Election (as defined in Note 15). This Rate Reset Election is bifurcated and accounted for separately as an embedded derivative and recorded at fair value at each reporting period. Refer to Note 15 and Note 16 for additional discussion.
    Net Income (Loss) Attributable to Genesis Energy, L.P. is reduced by Class A Convertible Preferred Unit distributions that accumulated during the period. Net Income (Loss) Attributable to Genesis Energy, L.P. was reduced by $18.7 million for the 2021 Quarter and 2020 Quarter.

Redeemable Noncontrolling Interests
    On September 23, 2019, we, through a subsidiary, Alkali Holdings, entered into an amended and restated Limited Liability Company Agreement of Alkali Holdings (the "LLC Agreement") and a Securities Purchase Agreement (the "Securities Purchase Agreement") whereby certain investment fund entities affiliated with GSO Capital Partners LP (collectively "GSO") purchased $55,000,000 (or 55,000 Alkali Holdings preferred units) and committed to purchase up to $350,000,000 of preferred units in Alkali Holdings, the entity that holds our trona and trona-based exploring, mining, processing, producing, marketing and selling business, including its Granger facility near Green River, Wyoming. Alkali Holdings will use the net proceeds from the Alkali Holdings preferred units to fund up to 100% of the anticipated cost of expansion of the Granger facility. On April 14, 2020, we entered into an amendment to our agreements with GSO to, among other things, extend the construction timeline of the Granger expansion project by one year, which we currently anticipate completing near the end of 2023. In consideration for the amendment, we issued 1,750 Alkali Holdings preferred units to GSO, which was accounted for as issuance costs. As part of the amendment, the commitment period was increased to four years, and the total commitment of GSO was increased to, subject to compliance with the covenants contained in the agreements with GSO, up to $351,750,000 preferred units (or 351,750 preferred units) in Alkali Holdings. As of March 31, 2021, there are 161,209 Alkali Holdings preferred units outstanding.
Accounting for Redeemable Noncontrolling Interests
    Classification
    The Alkali Holdings preferred units issued and outstanding are accounted for as a redeemable noncontrolling interest in the mezzanine section on our Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets due to the redemption features for a change of control.
    Initial and Subsequent Measurement
    We recorded the Alkali Holdings preferred units at their issuance date fair value, net of issuance costs. The fair value as of March 31, 2021 represents the carrying amount based on the issued and outstanding Alkali Holdings preferred units most probable redemption event on the six and a half year anniversary of the closing, which is the predetermined internal rate of return measure accreted using the effective interest method to the redemption value as of the reporting date. Net Income (Loss) Attributable to Genesis Energy, L.P. for the 2021 Quarter includes $4.8 million of adjustments, of which $4.1 million was allocated to the paid-in-kind ("PIK") distributions on the outstanding Alkali Holdings preferred units and $0.7 million was attributable to redemption accretion value adjustments. Net Income (Loss) Attributable to Genesis Energy, L.P. for the 2020 Quarter includes $4.1 million of adjustments, of which $3.3 million was allocated to the PIK distributions and $0.8 million was attributable to redemption accretion value adjustments. We elected to pay distributions for the period ended March 31, 2021 in-kind to our Alkali Holdings preferred unitholders. The unitholders liquidation preference is increased by new issuances and these PIK distributions and is reduced by tax distributions paid to the unitholders, which are required to be paid by us to fulfill the income tax liabilities of each holder of Alkali Holdings preferred units.
    As of the reporting date, there are no triggering, change of control, early redemption or monetization events that are probable that would require us to revalue the Alkali Holdings preferred units.
If the Alkali Holdings preferred units were redeemed on the reporting date of March 31, 2021, the redemption amount would be equal to $212.9 million, which would be the multiple of invested capital metric applied to the Alkali Holdings preferred units outstanding plus the make-whole amount on the undrawn minimum Alkali Holdings preferred units.

11. Net Income (Loss) Per Common Unit
    Basic net income per common unit is computed by dividing net income, after considering income attributable to our preferred unitholders, by the weighted average number of common units outstanding.
    The dilutive effect of our Class A Convertible Preferred Units is calculated using the if-converted method. Under the if-converted method, these units are assumed to be converted at the beginning of the period (beginning with their respective issuance date), and the resulting common units are included in the denominator of the diluted net income per common unit calculation for the period being presented. Distributions declared in the period and undeclared distributions that accumulated during the period are added back to the numerator for purposes of the if-converted calculation. For the 2021 Quarter, the effect of the assumed conversion of the 25,336,778 Class A Convertible Preferred Units was anti-dilutive and was not included in the computation of diluted earnings per unit.

Sodium minerals and sulfur services – trona and trona-based exploring, mining, processing, producing, marketing and selling activities, as well as the processing of high sulfur (or “sour”) gas streams for refineries to remove the sulfur, and selling the related by-product, NaHS;
Onshore facilities and transportation – terminalling, blending, storing, marketing and transporting crude oil and petroleum products (primarily fuel oil, asphalt, and other heavy refined products); and
Marine transportation – marine transportation to provide waterborne transportation of petroleum products and crude oil throughout North America.
    Substantially all of our revenues are derived from, and substantially all of our assets are located in, the United States.
We define Segment Margin as revenues less product costs, operating expenses (excluding non-cash gains and charges, such as depreciation, depletion, amortization and accretion), and segment general and administrative expenses, plus our equity in distributable cash generated by our equity investees. In addition, our Segment Margin definition excludes the non-cash effects of our long-term incentive compensation plan and includes the non-income portion of payments received under the previously owned direct financing lease.
Our chief operating decision maker (our Chief Executive Officer) evaluates segment performance based on a variety of measures including Segment Margin, segment volumes, where relevant, and capital investment.

Charges for services from ANSAC178 832 
(1)We own a 64% interest in Poseidon

    Our CEO, Mr. Sims, owns an aircraft which is used by us for business purposes in the course of operations. We pay Mr. Sims a fixed monthly fee and reimburse the aircraft management company for costs related to our usage of the aircraft, including fuel and the actual out-of-pocket costs. Based on current market rates for chartering of private aircraft under long-term, priority arrangements with industry recognized chartering companies, we believe that the terms of this arrangement are no worse than what we could have expected to obtain in an arms-length transaction.

Poseidon
    We are the operator of Poseidon and provide management, administrative and pipeline operator services to Poseidon under an Operation and Management Agreement. Currently, that agreement renews automatically annually unless terminated by either party (as defined in the agreement). Our revenues for the 2021 Quarter and 2020 Quarter reflect $2.4 million and $2.3 million, respectively, of fees we earned through the provision of services under that agreement. At March 31, 2021 and December 31, 2020, Poseidon owed us $1.5 million and $2.6 million, respectively, for services rendered.

ANSAC
    We (through a subsidiary of our Alkali Business) are a member of the American Natural Soda Ash Corp. ("ANSAC"), an organization whose purpose is promoting and increasing the use and sale of natural soda ash and other refined or processed sodium products produced in the U.S. and consumed in specified countries outside of the U.S. Members sell products to ANSAC to satisfy ANSAC’s sales commitments to its customers. ANSAC passes its costs through to its members using a pro rata calculation based on sales. Those costs include sales and marketing, employees, office supplies, professional fees, travel, rent, and certain other costs. Those transactions do not necessarily represent arm's length transactions and may not represent all costs we would otherwise incur if we operated our Alkali Business on a stand-alone basis. We also benefit from favorable shipping rates for our direct exports when using ANSAC to arrange for ocean transport.
ANSAC is considered a variable interest entity (VIE) because we experience certain risks and rewards from our relationship with them. As we do not exercise control over ANSAC and are not considered its primary beneficiary, we do not consolidate ANSAC. The ANSAC membership agreement provides that in the event an ANSAC member exits or the ANSAC cooperative is dissolved, the exiting members are obligated for their respective portion of the residual net assets or deficit of the cooperative. As of March 31, 2021, such amount is not material to us.
    Net Sales to ANSAC were $68.0 million during the 2021 Quarter and were $73.1 million during the 2020 Quarter. The costs charged to us by ANSAC, included in operating costs, were $0.2 million during the 2021 Quarter and were $0.8 million during the 2020 Quarter.

Payments of interest and commitment fees were $35.4 million and $33.7 million for the 2021 Quarter and 2020 Quarter, respectively. We capitalized interest of $0.7 million and $0.5 million during the 2021 Quarter and 2020 Quarter, respectively.
At March 31, 2021 and March 31, 2020, we had incurred liabilities for fixed and intangible asset additions totaling $27.1 million and $17.2 million, respectively, that had not been paid at the end of the quarter, and, therefore, were not included in the caption “Payments to acquire fixed and intangible assets” under Cash Flows from Investing Activities in the Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows.

15. Derivatives
Commodity Derivatives
    We have exposure to commodity price changes related to our inventory and purchase commitments. We utilize derivative instruments (primarily futures and options contracts traded on the NYMEX) to hedge our exposure to commodity prices, primarily of crude oil, fuel oil and petroleum products. Our decision as whether to designate derivative instruments as fair value hedges for accounting purposes relates to our expectations of the length of time we expect to have the commodity price exposure and our expectations as to whether the derivative contract will qualify as highly effective under accounting guidance in limiting our exposure to commodity price risk. Most of the petroleum products, including fuel oil that we supply, cannot be hedged with a high degree of effectiveness with derivative contracts available on the NYMEX; therefore, we do not designate derivative contracts utilized to limit our price risk related to these products as hedges for accounting purposes. Typically we utilize crude oil and other petroleum products futures and option contracts to limit our exposure to the effect of fluctuations in petroleum products prices on the future sale of our inventory or commitments to purchase petroleum products, and we recognize any changes in fair value of the derivative contracts as increases or decreases in our cost of sales. The recognition of changes in fair value of the derivative contracts not designated as hedges for accounting purposes can occur in reporting periods that do not coincide with the recognition of gain or loss on the actual transaction being hedged. Therefore we
23

GENESIS ENERGY, L.P.
NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
will, on occasion, report gains or losses in one period that will be partially offset by gains or losses in a future period when the hedged transaction is completed.
    We have designated certain crude oil futures contracts as hedges of crude oil inventory due to our expectation that these contracts will be highly effective in hedging our exposure to fluctuations in crude oil prices during the period that we expect to hold that inventory. We account for these derivative instruments as fair value hedges under the accounting guidance. Changes in the fair value of these derivative instruments designated as fair value hedges are used to offset related changes in the fair value of the hedged crude oil inventory. Any hedge ineffectiveness in these fair value hedges and any amounts excluded from effectiveness testing are recorded as a gain or loss in the Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations.
    In accordance with NYMEX requirements, we fund the margin associated with our commodity derivative contracts traded on the NYMEX. The amount of the margin is adjusted daily based on the fair value of the commodity contracts. The margin requirements are intended to mitigate a party's exposure to market volatility and the associated contracting party risk. We offset fair value amounts recorded for our NYMEX derivative contracts against margin funding as required by the NYMEX in Current Assets - Other in our Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets.
    Additionally, we enter into swap arrangements. Our Alkali Business relies on natural gas to generate heat and electricity for operations. We use a combination of commodity price swap contracts and future purchase contracts to manage our exposure to fluctuations in natural gas prices. The swap contracts fix the basis differential between NYMEX Henry Hub and NW Rocky Mountain posted prices. We do not designate these contracts as hedges for accounting purposes. We recognize any changes in fair value of the derivative contracts as increases or decreases in our cost of sales.
    At March 31, 2021, we entered into the following outstanding derivative commodity contracts to economically hedge inventory or fixed price purchase commitments.

Financial Statement Impacts
    Unrealized gains are subtracted from net income and unrealized losses are added to net income in determining cash flows from operating activities. To the extent that we have fair value hedges outstanding, the offsetting change recorded in the fair value of inventory is also eliminated from net income in determining cash flows from operating activities. Changes in margin deposits necessary to fund unrealized losses also affect cash flows from operating activities.

Our accounting policy is to offset derivative assets and liabilities executed with the same counterparty when a master netting arrangement exists.  Accordingly, we also offset derivative assets and liabilities with amounts associated with cash margin.  Our exchange-traded derivatives are transacted through brokerage accounts and are subject to margin requirements as established by the respective exchange.  On a daily basis, our account equity (consisting of the sum of our cash balance and the
25

GENESIS ENERGY, L.P.
NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
fair value of our open derivatives) is compared to our initial margin requirement resulting in the payment or return of variation margin.  As of March 31, 2021, we had a net broker receivable of approximately $1.8 million (consisting of initial margin of $1.1 million increased by $0.7 million of variation margin).  As of December 31, 2020, we had a net broker receivable of approximately $3.4 million (consisting of initial margin of $3.3 million increased by $0.1 million of variation margin).  At March 31, 2021 and December 31, 2020, none of our outstanding derivatives contained credit-risk related contingent features that would result in a material adverse impact to us upon any change in our credit ratings. 
Preferred Distribution Rate Reset Election    
    A derivative feature embedded in a contract that does not meet the definition of a derivative in its entirety must be bifurcated and accounted for separately if the economic characteristics and risks of the embedded derivative are not clearly and closely related to those of the host contract. For a period of 30 days following (i) September 1, 2022 and (ii) each subsequent anniversary thereof, the holders of our Class A Convertible Preferred Units may make a one-time election to reset the quarterly distribution amount (a "Rate Reset Election") to a cash amount per Class A Convertible Preferred Unit equal to the amount that would be payable per quarter if a Class A Convertible Preferred Unit accrued interest on the Issue Price at an annualized rate equal to three-month LIBOR plus 750 basis points; provided, however, that such reset rate shall be equal to 10.75% if (i) such alternative rate is higher than the LIBOR-based rate and (ii) the then market price for our common units is then less than 110% of the Issue Price. The Rate Reset Election of our Class A Convertible Preferred Units represents an embedded derivative that must be bifurcated from the related host contract and recorded at fair value on our Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheet. Corresponding changes in fair value are recognized in Other income, net in our Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Statement of Operations. At March 31, 2021, the fair value of this embedded derivative was a liability of $70.8 million. See Note 10 for additional information regarding our Class A Convertible Preferred Units and the Rate Reset Election.

16. Fair-Value Measurements
We classify financial assets and liabilities into the following three levels based on the inputs used to measure fair value:
(1)Level 1 fair values are based on observable inputs such as quoted prices in active markets for identical assets and liabilities;
(2)Level 2 fair values are based on pricing inputs other than quoted prices in active markets for identical assets and liabilities and are either directly or indirectly observable as of the measurement date; and
(3)Level 3 fair values are based on unobservable inputs in which little or no market data exists.
26

GENESIS ENERGY, L.P.
NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
    As required by fair value accounting guidance, financial assets and liabilities are classified in their entirety based on the lowest level of input that is significant to the fair value measurement.
Our assessment of the significance of a particular input to the fair value requires judgment and may affect the placement of assets and liabilities within the fair value hierarchy levels.
The following table sets forth by level within the fair value hierarchy our financial assets and liabilities that were accounted for at fair value on a recurring basis as of March 31, 2021 and December 31, 2020.

Balance as of December 31, 2020$(52,372)
Unrealized loss for the period included in earnings(18,438)
Balance as of March 31, 2021$(70,810)

Our commodity derivatives include exchange-traded futures and exchange-traded options contracts. The fair value of these exchange-traded derivative contracts is based on unadjusted quoted prices in active markets and is, therefore, included in Level 1 of the fair value hierarchy. The fair value of the swaps contracts was determined using market price quotations and a pricing model. The swap contracts were considered a level 2 input in the fair value hierarchy at March 31, 2021.
The fair value of the embedded derivative feature is based on a valuation model that estimates the fair value of our Class A Convertible Preferred Units with and without a Rate Reset Election. This model contains inputs, including our common unit price relative to the issuance price, the current dividend yield, credit spread, default probabilities, equity volatility and timing estimates which involve management judgment. Our equity volatility rate used to value our embedded derivative feature was 50% at March 31, 2021. A significant increase or decrease in the value of these inputs could result in a material change in fair value to this embedded derivative feature. Due to a decrease in our discount yield compared to the preceding quarter, as well as the passage of time as we draw nearer to our coupon rate reset date in 2022, we recorded an unrealized loss of $18.4 million for the 2021 Quarter. During the 2020 Quarter, we recorded an unrealized gain of $32.5 million due to the significant changes in the energy industry credit markets and our common unit price during the period. The unrealized loss in the 2021 Quarter and the unrealized gain in the 2020 Quarter are recorded within "Other income (expense)" on the Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations.
See Note 15 for additional information on our derivative instruments.
Other Fair Value Measurements
We believe the debt outstanding under our credit facility approximates fair value as the stated rate of interest approximates current market rates of interest for similar instruments with comparable maturities. At March 31, 2021 our senior unsecured notes had a carrying value and fair value of $2.7 billion compared to a carrying value of $2.8 billion and fair value of $2.7 billion at December 31, 2020. The fair value of the senior unsecured notes is determined based on trade information in the financial markets of our public debt and is considered a Level 2 fair value measurement.

17. Commitments and Contingencies
We are subject to various environmental laws and regulations. Policies and procedures are in place to aid in monitoring compliance and detecting and addressing releases of crude oil from our pipelines or other facilities and from our mining operations relating to our Alkali Business; however, no assurance can be made that such environmental releases may not substantially affect our business.
We are subject to lawsuits in the normal course of business and examination by tax and other regulatory authorities. We do not expect such matters presently pending to have a material effect on our financial position, results of operations, or cash flows.

18. Subsequent Events
On April 8, 2021, we entered into the Fifth Amended and Restated Credit Agreement (our "new credit agreement") to replace our Fourth Amended and Restated Credit Agreement. Our new credit agreement provides for a $950 million senior secured credit facility, comprising a term loan facility of $300 million and a revolving loan facility of $650 million, with the ability to increase the aggregate size of the revolving loan facility by an additional $200 million subject to lender consent and certain other customary conditions. The new credit agreement matures on March 15, 2024, subject to extension at our request for one additional year on up to 2 occasions and subject to certain conditions.
On April 22, 2021 we completed our offering of an additional $250 million in aggregate principal amount of our 2027 Notes. The additional notes constitute an additional issuance of our existing 2027 Notes that we issued on December 17, 2020 in an aggregate principal amount of $750 million. The additional $250 million of notes have identical terms as (other than with respect to the issue price) and constitute part of the same series of the 2027 Notes we issued on December 17, 2020. The $250 million of the 2027 Notes were issued at a premium of 103.75%, plus accrued interest from December 17, 2020. We intend to use the net proceeds from the offering for general partnership purposes, including repaying a portion of the revolving borrowings outstanding under our new revolving loan facility.

Overview

We reported Net Loss Attributable to Genesis Energy, L.P. of $34.2 million during the 2021 Quarter compared to Net Income Attributable to Genesis Energy, L.P. of $24.9 million during the 2020 Quarter. Net Loss Attributable to Genesis Energy, L.P. in the 2021 Quarter was impacted, relative to the 2020 Quarter, by: (i) lower Segment Margin of $13.2 million, which is inclusive of approximately $12.3 million of incremental cash receipts received in the 2021 Quarter associated with principal repayments on our previously owned NEJD pipeline not included in income and included in the 2021 Quarter's Segment Margin; and (ii) an unrealized loss from the valuation of the embedded derivative associated with our Class A Convertible Preferred Units of $18.4 million in the 2021 Quarter compared to an unrealized gain of $32.5 million during the 2020 Quarter recorded within Other income (expense). These decreases were partially offset by (i) lower depreciation, depletion and amortization expense of $8.1 million during the 2021 Quarter primarily due to lower depreciation expense on our rail logistics assets as they were impaired during the second quarter of 2020, and (ii) higher equity in earnings of equity investees of $6.5 million during the 2021 Quarter primarily due to increased volumes on our 64% owned Poseidon oil pipeline.
Cash flow from operating activities was $77.2 million for the 2021 Quarter compared to $89.6 million for the 2020 Quarter. This decrease is primarily attributable to lower Segment Margin of $13.2 million in the 2021 Quarter.
Available Cash before Reserves (as defined below in "Non-GAAP Financial Measures") to our common unitholders was $54.6 million for the 2021 Quarter, a decrease of $27.2 million, or 33.2%, from the 2020 Quarter, primarily due to lower Segment Margin of $13.2 million, as well as higher maintenance capital utilized, general and administrative expenses, and interest expense in the 2021 Quarter. See “Non-GAAP Financial Measures” below for additional information on Available Cash before Reserves and Segment Margin.
Segment Margin (as defined below in "Non-GAAP Financial Measures") was $156.1 million for the 2021 Quarter, a decrease of $13.2 million, or 8%, from the 2020 Quarter. A more detailed discussion of our segment results and other costs is included below in "Results of Operations".
    See “Non-GAAP Financial Measures” below for additional information on Available Cash before Reserves and Segment Margin.
    Distribution
In April 2021, we declared our quarterly distribution to our common unitholders of $0.15 per unit related to the 2021 Quarter. With respect to our Class A Convertible Preferred Units, we declared a quarterly cash distribution of $0.7374 per Class A Convertible Preferred Unit (or $2.9496 on an annualized basis) for each Class A Convertible Preferred Unit held of record. These distributions will be payable on May 14, 2021 to unitholders of record at the close of business on April 30, 2021.

Covid-19 and Market Update
    In March 2020, the World Health Organization categorized Covid-19 as a pandemic, and the President of the United States declared the Covid-19 outbreak a national emergency. Our operations, which fall within the energy, mining and transportation sectors, are considered critical and essential by the Department of Homeland Security's CISA and we have continued to operate our assets during this pandemic.
    We have a designated internal management team to provide resources, updates, and support to our entire workforce during this pandemic, while maintaining a focus to ensure the safety and well-being of our employees, the families of our employees, and the communities in which our businesses operate. We will continue to act in the best interests of our employees, stakeholders, customers, partners, and suppliers and make any necessary changes as required by federal, state, or local authorities as we continue to actively monitor the situation.
    Covid-19 has caused commodity prices to fluctuate due to, among other things, reduced industrial activity and travel demand that are expected to continue in the near future. Additionally, actions taken by OPEC and other oil exporting nations beginning in early March 2020 caused additional significant volatility in the price of oil and gas. These volatile commodity prices are expected to continue at least for the near-term and possibly longer, reflecting fears of a global recession and potential further global economic damage from Covid-19, including factory shutdowns, travel bans, closings of schools and stores, and cancellations of conventions and similar events, resulting in, among other things, reduced fuel demand, lower manufacturing activity, and high inventories of oil, natural gas, and petroleum products, which could further negatively impact oil, natural gas, and petroleum products and industrial products.
    Due to the economic effects from commodity prices and Covid-19, demand and volumes throughout our businesses were negatively impacted throughout 2020 beginning in the second quarter. Additionally, during 2020, our businesses were negatively impacted by lower refinery utilization, crude differentials, supply and demand imbalances in our Alkali Business, and an unprecedented hurricane season. However, we began to see economic recovery across a majority of our asset footprint as we exited 2020, which continued during the 2021 Quarter. Specifically, during the 2021 Quarter, our offshore pipeline transportation segment experienced volumes at its normal run rate as we exited the quarter with our CHOPS pipeline back in service. Additionally, our Alkali Business sold out of all production at its Westvaco facility.
We continue to monitor the market environment and will evaluate whether any triggering events would indicate possible impairments of long-lived assets, intangible assets and goodwill. Management’s estimates are based on numerous assumptions about future operations and market conditions, which we believe to be reasonable but are inherently uncertain. The uncertainties underlying our assumptions and estimates could differ significantly from actual results, including with respect to the duration and severity of the Covid-19 pandemic. In the current volatile economic environment and to the extent conditions deteriorate, we may identify triggering events that may require future evaluations of the recoverability of the carrying value of our long-lived assets, intangible assets and goodwill, which could result in impairment charges that could be material to our results of operations.
Although the potential future limitations and impact of Covid-19 are still unknown at this time, and although we tend to experience less demand for certain of our services and products when commodity prices decrease significantly over extended periods of time (and we expect a similar impact on demand when global restrictions are in place limiting the economy and industrial product use), we believe the fundamentals of our core businesses continue to remain strong and, given the current industry environment and capital market behavior, we have continued our focus on de-leveraging our balance sheet, which included the reduction of our distribution to common unitholders beginning in the first quarter of 2020 and continuing to recognize the benefits from our cost savings initiative in the second quarter of 2020. Additionally, subsequent to the 2021 Quarter, we successfully refinanced and extended our senior secured credit facility and issued an additional $250 million in aggregate principal amount of our 2027 Notes. These two events resulted in no scheduled maturities of long-term debt until 2024, other than the minimal quarterly payments due on the term loan component of our credit facility beginning at the end of 2021. Refer to "Liquidity and Capital Resources" for addition discussion.

Results of Operations
Revenues and Costs and Expenses
    Our revenues for the 2021 Quarter decreased $18.7 million, or 3%, from the 2020 Quarter and our total costs and expenses as presented on the Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations increased $12.4 million, or 3%, between the two periods, with a net decrease to our operating income of $31.1 million.
The decrease in our operating income during the 2021 Quarter is primarily driven by lower Segment Margin of $13.2 million, which is inclusive of approximately $12.3 million of incremental cash receipts received not included in income from our previously owned NEJD pipeline and incremental cash distributions received from our equity investees of $9.0 million. A more detailed discussion of our individual segment results is included in the section below, "Segment Margin." This was partially offset by lower depreciation, depletion, and amortization expense of $8.1 million during the 2021 Quarter primarily associated with our rail logistics assets, as they were impaired during the second quarter of 2020.
A substantial portion of our revenues and costs are derived from the purchase and sale of crude oil in our crude oil marketing business, which is included in our onshore facilities and transportation segment, and revenues and costs associated with our Alkali Business, which is included in our sodium minerals and sulfur services segment. We describe, in more detail, the impact on revenues and costs for each of our businesses below.
    As it relates to our crude oil marketing business, the average closing prices for West Texas Intermediate crude oil on the New York Mercantile Exchange ("NYMEX") increased 25% to $57.84 per barrel in the 2021 Quarter, as compared to $46.17 per barrel in the 2020 Quarter. Impacts from Covid-19 along with actions taken by OPEC and other oil exporting nations beginning in early 2020 have caused significant price volatility in oil and gas prices.
We would expect changes in crude oil prices to continue to proportionately affect our revenues and costs attributable to our purchase and sale of crude oil and petroleum products, producing minimal direct impact on Segment Margin, net income, and Available Cash before Reserves. We have limited our direct commodity price exposure related to crude oil and petroleum products through the broad use of fee-based service contracts, back-to-back purchase and sale arrangements, and hedges. As a result, changes in the price of crude oil would proportionately impact both our revenues and our costs, with a disproportionately smaller net impact on our Segment Margin. However, we do have some indirect exposure to certain changes in prices for oil, natural gas, and petroleum products, particularly if they are significant and extended. We tend to experience more demand for certain of our services when commodity prices increase significantly over extended periods of time, and we tend to experience less demand for certain of our services when commodity prices decrease significantly over extended periods of time. For additional information regarding certain of our indirect exposure to commodity prices, see our segment-by-segment analysis below and the section of our Annual Report entitled " Risks Related to Our Business."
    As it relates to our Alkali Business, our revenues are derived from the extraction of trona, as well as the activities surrounding the processing and sale of natural soda ash and other alkali specialty products, including sodium sesquicarbonate (S-Carb) and sodium bicarbonate (Bicarb), and are a function of our selling prices and volume sold. We sell our products to an industry-diverse and worldwide customer base. Our selling prices are contracted at various times throughout the year and for different durations. Typically, our selling prices for volumes sold internationally and through ANSAC are contracted for the current year (in a majority of cases, annually) in the prior December and January of the current year, and our volumes priced and sold domestically are contracted at various times and can be of varying durations, often multi-year terms. Our sales volumes can fluctuate from period to period and are dependent upon many factors, of which the main drivers are the global market, customer demand and economic growth. Positive or negative changes to our revenue, through fluctuations in sales volumes or selling prices, can have a direct impact to Segment Margin, net income and Available Cash before Reserves as these fluctuations have a lesser impact to operating costs due to the fact that a portion of our costs are fixed in nature. Our costs, of which some are variable in nature and others are fixed in nature, relate primarily to the processing and producing of soda ash (and other alkali specialty products) and marketing and selling activities. In addition, costs include activities associated with mining and extracting trona ore, including energy costs and employee compensation. In our Alkali Business, during the 2021 Quarter as noted above, we had negative effects to our revenues (with a lesser impact to costs) due to lower sales volumes as a result of our Granger facility being put in a cold standby in 2020 and lower domestic pricing of soda ash during the 2021. During the 2021 Quarter, we were able to generate cost efficiencies due to our cost savings initiative, and lower energy consumption and maintenance spending. For additional information, see our segment-by-segment analysis below.
    In addition to our crude oil marketing business and Alkali Business discussed above, we continue to operate in our other core businesses including: (i) our offshore Gulf of Mexico crude oil and natural gas pipeline transportation and handling operations, focusing on providing a suite of services primarily to integrated and large independent energy companies who make intensive capital investments (often in excess of a billion dollars) to develop numerous large-reservoir, long-lived crude oil and natural gas properties; (ii) our sulfur services business, which is one of the largest producers and marketers (based on tons produced) of NaHS in North and South America; and (iii) our onshore-based refinery-centric operations located primarily in the Gulf Coast region of the U.S., which focus on providing a suite of services primarily to refiners. Refiners are the shippers of
31

over 95% of the volumes transported on our onshore crude pipelines, and refiners contract for 75% of the use of our inland barges, which are used primarily to transport intermediate refined products (not crude oil) between refining complexes. The shippers on our offshore pipelines are mostly integrated and large independent energy companies whose production is ideally suited for the vast majority of refineries along the Gulf Coast, unlike the lighter crude oil and condensates produced from numerous onshore shale plays. Their large-reservoir properties and the related pipelines and other infrastructure needed to develop them are capital intensive and yet, we believe, economically viable, in most cases, even in relatively low commodity price environments. Given these facts, we do not expect changes in commodity prices to impact our net income, Available Cash before Reserves or Segment Margin derived from our offshore Gulf of Mexico crude oil and natural gas pipeline transportation and handling operations in the same manner in which they impact our revenues and costs derived from the purchase and sale of crude oil and petroleum products.
    Additionally, changes in certain of our operating costs between the respective quarters, such as those associated with our sodium minerals and sulfur services, offshore pipeline and marine transportation segments, are not correlated with crude oil prices. We discuss certain of those costs in further detail below in our segment-by-segment analysis.

Three Months Ended March 31, 2021 Compared with Three Months Ended March 31, 2020
    Offshore pipeline transportation Segment Margin for the 2021 Quarter decreased $1.0 million, or 1%, from the 2020 Quarter, primarily due to lower overall volumes on our crude oil and natural gas pipeline systems. These lower volumes are primarily the result of our CHOPS pipeline being out of service through February 3, 2021 due to damage at a junction platform that the system goes up and over as a result of the 2020 hurricane season. On February 4, 2021, we placed the CHOPS pipeline back into service upon the installation of a bypass that allows our pipeline to operate around the junction platform. The lower CHOPS pipeline volumes during the 2021 Quarter were partially offset by increased distributions from our equity method investments, primarily associated with our 64% owned Poseidon oil pipeline system, as we were able to successfully divert CHOPS volumes to Poseidon during its out of service period. Additionally, we had higher volumes on our 100% owned SEKCO pipeline as a result of higher volumes from the Buckskin production field, which is fully dedicated to SEKCO and further downstream, Poseidon.

Three Months Ended March 31, 2021 Compared with Three Months Ended March 31, 2020
    Sodium minerals and sulfur services Segment Margin for the 2021 Quarter increased $6.8 million, or 18%, from the 2020 Quarter. This increase is primarily due to increased production rates at our Westvaco facility and cost efficiencies recognized during the 2021 Quarter in our Alkali Business. Such cost efficiencies include favorable energy consumption, maintenance and other cost savings as implemented during the second quarter of 2020. These increases were partially offset by lower domestic pricing in our Alkali Business and lower volumes reported during the period. During the 2021 Quarter, we reported lower NaHS volumes in our refinery services business due to lower demand from our mining customers, primarily in Peru. We have begun to see some recovery in demand from previous customer shut-ins amidst the spread of Covid-19 and our customer's production levels and we expect these volumes to continue recovering to their normal levels as we move through 2021. We also reported lower soda ash volumes as a result of our Granger facility being put in cold standby during the second half of 2020. Our Granger facility is expected to come back online during the second half of 2023 upon the completion of our Granger facility expansion project.

Onshore Facilities and Transportation Segment
    Our onshore facilities and transportation segment utilizes an integrated set of pipelines and terminals, as well as trucks, railcars, and barges to facilitate the movement of crude oil and refined products on behalf of producers, refiners and other customers. This segment includes crude oil and refined products pipelines, terminals and rail facilities operating primarily within the United States Gulf Coast crude oil market. In addition, we utilize our railcar and trucking fleets that support the purchase and sale of gathered and bulk purchased crude oil, as well as purchased and sold refined products. Through these assets we offer our customers a full suite of services, including the following:
facilitating the transportation of crude oil from producers to refineries and from owned and third party terminals to refiners via pipelines;
shipping crude oil and refined products to and from producers and refiners via trucks, pipelines, and railcars;
Unloading railcars at our crude-by-rail terminals;
storing and blending of crude oil and intermediate and finished refined products;
purchasing/selling and/or transporting crude oil from the wellhead to markets for ultimate use in refining; and
purchasing products from refiners, transporting those products to one of our terminals and blending those products to a quality that meets the requirements of our customers and selling those products (primarily fuel oil, asphalt and other heavy refined products) to wholesale markets.
    We also use our terminal facilities to take advantage of contango market conditions, to gather and market crude oil, and to capitalize on regional opportunities which arise from time to time for both crude oil and petroleum products. When we purchase and store crude oil during periods of contango, we attempt to limit direct commodity price risk by simultaneously entering into a contract to sell the inventory in a future period, either with a counterparty or in the crude oil futures market.
    Despite crude oil being considered a somewhat homogeneous commodity, many refiners are very particular about the quality of crude oil feedstock they process. Many U.S. refineries have distinct configurations and product slates that require crude oil with specific characteristics, such as gravity, sulfur content and metals content. The refineries evaluate the costs to obtain, transport and process their preferred feedstocks. That particularity provides us with opportunities to help the refineries in our areas of operation identify crude oil sources and transport crude oil meeting their requirements. The imbalances and inefficiencies relative to meeting the refiners’ requirements may also provide opportunities for us to utilize our purchasing and logistical skills and assets to meet their demands. The pricing in the majority of our crude oil purchase contracts contains a market price component and a deduction to cover the cost of transportation and to provide us with a margin. Contracts sometimes contain a grade differential which considers the chemical composition of the crude oil and its appeal to different customers. Typically, the pricing in a contract to sell crude oil will consist of the market price components and the grade differentials. The margin on individual transactions is then dependent on our ability to manage our transportation costs and to capitalize on grade differentials.
    In our refined products marketing operations, we supply primarily fuel oil, asphalt and other heavy refined products to wholesale markets and some end-users such as paper mills and utilities. We also provide a service to refineries by purchasing “heavier” petroleum products that are the residual fuels from gasoline production, transporting them to one of our terminals and blending them to a quality that meets the requirements of our customers.

Three Months Ended March 31, 2021 Compared with Three Months Ended March 31, 2020
    Onshore facilities and transportation Segment Margin for the 2021 Quarter decreased $7.1 million, or 25%, primarily due to lower volumes on our onshore pipeline and rail logistics assets. These lower volumes are the result of: (i) lower rail unload and pipeline volumes in Louisiana due to lower utilization at the Gulf Coast refineries that our assets serve; (ii) lower volumes on our Texas pipeline primarily due to less receipts originating in the Gulf of Mexico from our CHOPS pipeline as it was out of service for a portion of the 2021 Quarter; and (iii) the divestiture of our Free State pipeline during the fourth quarter of 2020, which contributed positively to Segment Margin in the 2020 Quarter. These decreases were offset by higher cash receipts received during the 2021 Quarter from Denbury of approximately $12.3 million associated with our previously owned NEJD pipeline as a result of our agreement reached during the fourth quarter of 2020.

Three Months Ended March 31, 2021 Compared with Three Months Ended March 31, 2020
    Marine transportation Segment Margin for the 2021 Quarter decreased $11.9 million, or 63%, from the 2020 Quarter. This decrease is primarily attributable to lower utilization and day rates in our inland business during the 2021 Quarter and lower rates in our offshore barge operation, including our M/T American Phoenix tanker. We expect to see continued pressure on our utilization, and to an extent, the spot rates on our inland business as Midwest and Gulf Coast refineries have continued to run at lower utilization rates to better align with overall demand as a result of Covid-19 and the current operating environment. We have continued to enter into short term contracts (less than a year) in both the inland and offshore markets because we believe the day rates currently being offered by the market have yet to fully recover from their cyclical lows. We also re-contracted our M/T American Phoenix tanker beginning in the second quarter of 2021 through the first quarter of 2022 at a higher rate than the 2021 Quarter.

Three Months Ended March 31, 2021 Compared with March Months Ended March 31, 2020
Total general and administrative expenses for the 2021 Quarter increased by $2.3 million primarily due to higher long term incentive compensation expense in the 2021 quarter as a result of changes in assumptions used to value our outstanding awards between the two periods. This increase was partially offset by lower corporate general and administrative costs in the 2021 Quarter.

Total depreciation, depletion, and amortization expense for the 2021 Quarter decreased by $8.1 million due to lower depreciation expense associated with our rail logistics assets in the 2021 Quarter as they were impaired during the second quarter of 2020. Additionally, our contract intangible associated with the M/T American Phoenix became fully amortized on September 30, 2020, which resulted in lower amortization expense in the 2021 Quarter.

Three Months Ended March 31, 2021 Compared with Three Months Ended March 31, 2020
Net interest expense for the 2021 Quarter increased by $2.9 million primarily due to increased interest expense associated with our senior unsecured notes. On January 16, 2020, we issued our $750 million 2028 Notes that accrue interest at 7.75%, and we purchased and extinguished our $750 million 2022 Notes that accrued interest at 6.75% during the 2020 Quarter. On December 17, 2020, we issued our $750 million 2027 Notes that accrue interest at 8.00%. We used the net proceeds to repay a portion of our 6% 2023 Notes that were validly tendered and we redeemed the remaining principal balance of $80.9 million on our 6% 2023 Notes on January 19, 2021. The excess proceeds received from the issuance of our 2027 Notes were used to repay borrowings on our revolving credit facility.
The increase in interest expense on our senior unsecured notes was partially offset by lower interest expense on our senior secured credit facility. The decrease in interest expense on our senior secured credit facility was primarily due to a lower outstanding balance and a lower interest rate during the 2021 Quarter. Interest rates on our senior secured credit facility decreased as a result of lower LIBOR rates during the 2021 Quarter relative to the 2020 Quarter, which is one of the main drivers of interest expense on our credit facility.
    Income tax expense
    A portion of our operations are owned by wholly-owned corporate subsidiaries that are taxable as corporations. As a result, a substantial portion of the income tax expense we record relates to the operations of those corporations, and will vary from period to period as a percentage of our income before taxes based on the percentage of our income or loss that is derived from those corporations. The balance of the income tax expense we record relates to state taxes imposed on our operations that are treated as income taxes under generally accepted accounting principles and foreign income taxes.

Liquidity and Capital Resources
    General
    As of March 31, 2021, our balance sheet and liquidity position remained strong, which included $999.7 million of remaining borrowing capacity under our $1.7 billion senior secured revolving credit facility. We anticipate that our future internally-generated funds and the funds available under our new credit agreement discussed below will allow us to meet our ordinary course capital needs. Our primary sources of liquidity have been cash flows from operations, borrowing availability under our prior credit facility and the proceeds from issuances of equity and senior unsecured notes.
Our primary cash requirements consist of:
working capital, primarily inventories and trade receivables and payables;
routine operating expenses;
capital growth and maintenance projects;
acquisitions of assets or businesses;
payments related to servicing and reducing outstanding debt; and
quarterly cash distributions to our preferred and common unitholders.
On April 8, 2021, we entered into the new credit agreement to replace our existing agreement. Our new credit agreement provides for a $950 million senior secured credit facility, comprising a term loan facility of $300 million and a revolving loan facility of $650 million, with the ability to increase the aggregate size of the revolving loan facility by an additional $200 million subject to lender consent and certain other customary conditions. The new credit agreement matures on March 15, 2024, subject to extension at our request for one additional year on up to two occasions and subject to certain conditions. The successful completion of our new credit agreement has resulted in no scheduled maturities of long-term debt until 2024, other than the minimal quarterly payments due under the associated term loan facility each quarter beginning at the end of 2021 (which will be funded by the available capacity under our revolving loan facility).
Furthermore, on April 22, 2021 we completed our offering of an additional $250 million in aggregate principal amount of our 2027 Notes. The notes constitute an additional issuance of our existing 2027 Notes that we issued on December 17, 2020 in an aggregate principal amount of $750 million. The additional $250 million of notes have identical terms as (other than with respect to issue price) and constitute part of the same series of the 2027 Notes we issued on December 17, 2020. The $250 million of the 2027 Notes were issued at a premium of 103.75%, plus accrued interest from December 17, 2020. We intend to use the net proceeds from the offering for general partnership purposes, including repaying a portion of the revolving borrowings outstanding under our new credit facility. As a result of this issuance, we have been able to increase the available borrowing capacity on our new credit agreement, which provides us additional liquidity to comfortably satisfy our primary cash requirements discussed above.
Capital Resources
    Our ability to satisfy future capital needs will depend on our ability to raise substantial amounts of additional capital from time to time — including through equity and debt offerings (public and private), borrowings under our credit facility and other financing transactions—and to implement our growth strategy successfully. No assurance can be made that we will be able to raise necessary funds on satisfactory terms or implement our growth strategy successfully.
    At March 31, 2021, our long-term debt totaled approximately $3,370.3 million, which is a reduction of $23.5 million sequentially from December 31, 2020, and consisted of $699.0 million outstanding under our prior credit facility (including $13.0 million borrowed under the inventory sublimit tranche) and $2,671.3 million of senior unsecured notes, net of issuance costs, comprising of $338.4 million carrying amount due on June 15, 2024, $529.5 million carrying amount due October 2025, $355.8 million carrying value due May 2026, $737.5 million carrying value due January 15, 2027, and $710.1 million carrying amount due February 15, 2028. We remain focused on continuing to be a net payer of debt and reducing our operating leverage.
    On September 23, 2019, we announced the Granger Optimization Project. We entered into agreements with GSO for the purchase of up to approximately $350 million of preferred units of Alkali Holdings. The proceeds received from GSO will fund up to 100% of the anticipated cost of the GOP. On April 14, 2020, we entered into an amendment to our agreements with GSO to, among other things, extend the construction timeline of the Granger expansion project by one year. The extended completion date of the project is anticipated in late 2023. The Alkali Holdings preferred unitholders receive PIK distributions in lieu of cash distributions during the new anticipated construction period. The expansion is expected to increase our production at the Granger facilities by approximately 750,000 tons per year.

Shelf Registration Statement
    We have the ability to issue additional equity and debt securities in the future to assist us in meeting our future liquidity requirements, particularly those related to opportunistically acquiring assets and businesses and constructing new facilities and refinancing outstanding debt.
    We have a universal shelf registration statement (our "2021 Shelf") on file with the SEC which we filed on April 19, 2021 to replace our existing universal shelf registration statement that expired on April 20, 2021. Our 2021 Shelf allows us to issue an unlimited amount of equity and debt securities in connection with certain types of public offerings. However, the receptiveness of the capital markets to an offering of equity and/or debt securities cannot be assured and may be negatively impacted by, among other things, our long-term business prospects and other factors beyond our control, including market conditions. Our 2021Shelf is set to expire in April 2024.
Cash Flows from Operations
    We generally utilize the cash flows we generate from our operations to fund our distributions and working capital needs. Excess funds that are generated are used to repay borrowings under our credit facility and/or to fund a portion of our capital expenditures and asset retirement obligations (if any). Our operating cash flows can be impacted by changes in items of working capital, primarily variances in the carrying amount of inventory and the timing of payment of accounts payable and accrued liabilities related to capital expenditures.
    We typically sell our purchased crude oil in the same month in which we acquire it, so we do not need to rely on borrowings under our credit facility to pay for such crude oil purchases, other than inventory. During such periods, our accounts receivable and accounts payable generally move in tandem, as we make payments and receive payments for the purchase and sale of crude oil.
    In our petroleum products onshore facilities and transportation activities, we purchase products and typically either move those products to one of our storage facilities for further blending or sell those products within days of our purchase. The cash requirements for these activities can result in short term increases and decreases in our borrowings under our credit facility.
    In our Alkali Business, we typically extract trona from our mining facilities, process it into soda ash and other alkali products, and deliver and sell the alkali products to our customers all within a relatively short time frame. If we do experience any differences in timing of extraction, processing and sales of our trona or alkali products, it could impact the cash requirements for these activities in the short term.
    The storage of our inventory of crude oil and petroleum products can have a material impact on our cash flows from operating activities. In the month we pay for the stored crude oil or petroleum products, we borrow under our credit facility (or use cash on hand) to pay for the crude oil or petroleum products, utilizing a portion of our operating cash flows. Conversely, cash flow from operating activities increases during the period in which we collect the cash from the sale of the stored crude oil or petroleum products. Additionally, we may be required to deposit margin funds with the NYMEX when commodity prices increase as the value of the derivatives utilized to hedge the price risk in our inventory fluctuates. These deposits also impact our operating cash flows as we borrow under our credit facility or use cash on hand to fund the deposits.
    See Note 14 in our Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements for information regarding changes in components of operating assets and liabilities for the 2021 Quarter and 2020 Quarter.
    Net cash flows provided by our operating activities for the 2021 Quarter were $77.2 million compared to $89.6 million for the 2020 Quarter. This decrease is primarily attributable to lower Segment Margin during the 2021 Quarter.
Capital Expenditures, Distributions and Certain Cash Requirements
    We use cash primarily for our operating expenses, working capital needs, debt service, acquisition activities, organic growth projects, maintenance capital expenditures and distributions we pay to our preferred and common unitholders. We finance maintenance capital expenditures and smaller organic growth projects and distributions primarily with cash generated by our operations. We have historically funded material growth capital projects (including acquisitions and organic growth projects) with borrowings under our credit facility, equity issuances and/or issuances of senior unsecured notes. We currently plan to allocate a substantial portion of our excess cash flow to reduce the balance outstanding under our revolving credit facility and to opportunistically repurchase our outstanding senior unsecured notes.

    Expenditures for capital assets to grow the partnership distribution will depend on our access to debt and equity capital. We will look for opportunities to acquire assets from other parties that meet our criteria for stable cash flows. We continue to pursue a long-term growth strategy that may require significant capital.
    Growth Capital Expenditures
    On September 23, 2019, we announced the Granger Optimization Project. We entered into agreements with GSO for the purchase of up to approximately $350 million of preferred units (or 350,000 preferred units) of Alkali Holdings. The proceeds received from GSO will fund up to 100% of the anticipated cost of the GOP. On April 14, 2020, we entered into an amendment to our agreements with GSO to, among other things, extend the construction timeline of the Granger expansion project by one year. The extended completion date of the project is anticipated in late 2023. We issued 1,750 preferred units to GSO in consideration for the amendment. The Alkali Holdings preferred unitholders receive PIK distributions in lieu of cash distributions during the new anticipated construction period. As of March 31, 2021 we had issued 161,209 Alkali Holdings preferred units. The expansion is expected to increase our production at the Granger facilities by approximately 750,000 tons per year.
    Except for the Granger Optimization Project, we do not anticipate spending material growth capital expenditures on any individual projects during the rest of 2021.
    Maintenance Capital Expenditures
    Maintenance capital expenditures incurred during 2021 primarily relate to expenditures in our Alkali Business, our marine transportation segment, and in our offshore transportation segment. Our Alkali Business, which is included in our sodium minerals and sulfur services segment, incurs expenditures to maintain its equipment and facilities due to the nature of its operations. Our marine transportation segment incurs expenditures as we frequently replace and upgrade certain equipment associated with our barge and vessel fleet during our planned and unplanned dry-docks. Additionally, we incurred maintenance capital expenditures in our offshore transportation segment to replace certain pipeline and platform equipment and complete the installation of a bypass to allow our CHOPS pipeline to resume operations in the 2021 Quarter. See further discussion under "Available Cash before Reserves" for how such maintenance capital utilization is reflected in our calculation of Available Cash before Reserves.
    Distributions to Unitholders
    On May 14, 2021, we will pay a distribution of $0.15 per common unit totaling $18.4 million with respect to the 2021 Quarter. Information on our recent distribution history is included in Note 10 to our Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements.
42

    With respect to our Class A Convertible Preferred Units, we declared a quarterly cash distribution of $0.7374 per Class A Convertible Preferred Unit (or $2.9496 on an annualized basis) for each Class A Convertible Preferred Unit held of record. These distributions will be payable on May 14, 2021 to unitholders of record at the close of business on April 30, 2021.
Guarantor Summarized Financial Information
    Our $2.7 billion aggregate principal amount of senior unsecured notes co-issued by Genesis Energy, L.P. and Genesis Energy Finance Corporation are fully and unconditionally guaranteed jointly and severally by all of Genesis Energy, L.P.’s current and future 100% owned domestic subsidiaries (the "Guarantor Subsidiaries), except the subsidiaries that hold our Alkali Business (collectively, the "Alkali Subsidiaries"), Genesis Free State Pipeline, LLC, Genesis NEJD Pipeline, LLC, and certain other subsidiaries. The assets owned by Genesis Free State Pipeline, LLC were sold on October 30, 2020 and the ownership of Genesis NEJD Pipeline LLC's pipeline was transferred on October, 2020. Genesis NEJD Pipeline, LLC is 100% owned by Genesis Energy, L.P., the parent company. The remaining non-guarantor subsidiaries are owned by Genesis Crude Oil, L.P., a Guarantor Subsidiary. The Guarantor Subsidiaries largely own the assets that we use to operate our business other than our Alkali Business. As a general rule, the assets and credit of our unrestricted subsidiaries are not available to satisfy the debts of Genesis Energy, L.P., Genesis Energy Finance Corporation or the Guarantor Subsidiaries, and the liabilities of our unrestricted subsidiaries do not constitute obligations of Genesis Energy, L.P., Genesis Energy Finance Corporation or the Guarantor Subsidiaries except, in the case of Alkali Holdings and Genesis Energy, L.P., to the extent agreed to in the Services Agreement. Genesis Energy Finance Corporation has no independent assets or operations. See Note 9 for additional information regarding our consolidated debt obligations.
    The guarantees are senior unsecured obligations of each Guarantor Subsidiary and rank equally in right of payment with other existing and future senior indebtedness of such Guarantor Subsidiary, and senior in right of payment to all existing and future subordinated indebtedness of such Guarantor Subsidiary. The guarantee of our senior unsecured notes by each Guarantor Subsidiary is subject to certain automatic customary releases, including in connection with the sale, disposition or transfer of all of the capital stock, or of all or substantially all of the assets, of such Guarantor Subsidiary to one or more persons that are not us or a restricted subsidiary, the exercise of legal defeasance or covenant defeasance options, the satisfaction and discharge of the indentures governing our senior unsecured notes, the designation of such Guarantor Subsidiary as a non-guarantor restricted subsidiary or as an unrestricted subsidiary in accordance with the indentures governing our senior unsecured notes, the release of such Guarantor Subsidiary from its guarantee under our senior secured credit facility, or liquidation or dissolution of such Guarantor Subsidiary (collectively, the “Releases”). The obligations of each Guarantor Subsidiary under its note guarantee are limited as necessary to prevent such note guarantee from constituting a fraudulent conveyance under applicable law. We are not restricted from making investments in the Guarantor Subsidiaries and there are no significant restrictions on the ability of the Guarantor Subsidiaries to make distributions to Genesis Energy, L.P.
    The rights of holders of our senior unsecured notes against the Guarantor Subsidiaries may be limited under the U.S. Bankruptcy Code or state fraudulent transfer or conveyance law.
    The following is the summarized financial information for Genesis Energy, L.P. and the Guarantor Subsidiaries on a combined basis after elimination of intercompany transactions, which includes related receivable and payable balances, and the investment in and equity earnings from the Non-Guarantor Subsidiaries.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
General
    To help evaluate our business, we use the non-generally accepted accounting principle (“non-GAAP”) financial measure of Available Cash before Reserves. We also present total Segment Margin as if it were a non-GAAP measure. Our non-GAAP measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies because such measures may include or exclude other specified items. The schedules above provide reconciliations of Available Cash before Reserves to its most directly comparable financial measures calculated in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America (GAAP). A reconciliation of total Segment Margin to net income (loss) is also included in our segment disclosure in Note 12 to our Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements. Our non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered (i) as alternatives to GAAP measures of liquidity or financial performance or (ii) as being singularly important in any particular context; they should be considered in a broad context with other quantitative and qualitative information. Our Available Cash before Reserves and total Segment Margin measures are just two of the relevant data points considered from time to time.
    When evaluating our performance and making decisions regarding our future direction and actions (including making discretionary payments, such as quarterly distributions) our board of directors and management team has access to a wide range of historical and forecasted qualitative and quantitative information, such as our financial statements; operational information; various non-GAAP measures; internal forecasts; credit metrics; analyst opinions; performance, liquidity and similar measures; income; cash flow; and expectations for us, and certain information regarding some of our peers. Additionally, our board of directors and management team analyze, and place different weight on, various factors from time to time. We believe that investors benefit from having access to the same financial measures being utilized by management, lenders, analysts and other
45

market participants. We attempt to provide adequate information to allow each individual investor and other external user to reach her/his own conclusions regarding our actions without providing so much information as to overwhelm or confuse such investor or other external user. Our non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered as an alternative to GAAP measures such as net income, operating income, cash flow from operating activities or any other GAAP measure of liquidity or financial performance.
Segment Margin
    Our chief operating decision maker (our Chief Executive Officer) evaluates segment performance based on a variety of measures including Segment Margin, segment volumes where relevant and capital investment. We define Segment Margin as revenues less product costs, operating expenses, and segment general and administrative expenses, after eliminating gain or loss on sale of assets, plus or minus applicable Select Items. Although, we do not necessarily consider all of our Select Items to be non-recurring, infrequent or unusual, we believe that an understanding of these Select Items is important to the evaluation of our core operating results.
A reconciliation of total Segment Margin to net income (loss) is included in our segment disclosure in Note 12 to our Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements, as well as previously in this Item 2.
Available Cash before Reserves
    Purposes, Uses and Definition
Available Cash before Reserves, often referred to by others as distributable cash flow, is a quantitative standard used throughout the investment community with respect to publicly traded partnerships and is commonly used as a supplemental financial measure by management and by external users of financial statements such as investors, commercial banks, research analysts and rating agencies, to aid in assessing, among other things:
(1)    the financial performance of our assets;
(2)    our operating performance;
(3)    the viability of potential projects, including our cash and overall return on alternative capital investments as compared to those of other companies in the midstream energy industry;
(4)    the ability of our assets to generate cash sufficient to satisfy certain non-discretionary cash requirements, including interest payments and certain maintenance capital requirements; and
(5)    our ability to make certain discretionary payments, such as distributions on our preferred and common units, growth capital expenditures, certain maintenance capital expenditures and early payments of indebtedness.
Disclosure Format Relating to Maintenance Capital
We use a modified format relating to maintenance capital requirements because our maintenance capital expenditures vary materially in nature (discretionary vs. non-discretionary), timing and amount from time to time. We believe that, without such modified disclosure, such changes in our maintenance capital expenditures could be confusing and potentially misleading to users of our financial information, particularly in the context of the nature and purposes of our Available Cash before Reserves measure. Our modified disclosure format provides those users with information in the form of our maintenance capital utilized measure (which we deduct to arrive at Available Cash before Reserves). Our maintenance capital utilized measure constitutes a proxy for non-discretionary maintenance capital expenditures and it takes into consideration the relationship among maintenance capital expenditures, operating expenses and depreciation from period to period.
Maintenance Capital Requirements
Maintenance Capital Expenditures
Maintenance capital expenditures are capitalized costs that are necessary to maintain the service capability of our existing assets, including the replacement of any system component or equipment which is worn out or obsolete. Maintenance capital expenditures can be discretionary or non-discretionary, depending on the facts and circumstances.
Initially, substantially all of our maintenance capital expenditures were (a) related to our pipeline assets and similar infrastructure, (b) non-discretionary in nature and (c) immaterial in amount as compared to our Available Cash before Reserves measure. Those historical expenditures were non-discretionary (or mandatory) in nature because we had very little (if any) discretion as to whether or when we incurred them. We had to incur them in order to continue to operate the related pipelines in a safe and reliable manner and consistently with past practices. If we had not made those expenditures, we would not have been able to continue to operate all or portions of those pipelines, which would not have been economically feasible. An example of a non-discretionary (or mandatory) maintenance capital expenditure would be replacing a segment of an old pipeline because one can no longer operate that pipeline safely, legally and/or economically in the absence of such replacement.
46

As we exist today, a substantial amount of our maintenance capital expenditures from time to time will be (a) related to our assets other than pipelines, such as our marine vessels, trucks and similar assets, (b) discretionary in nature and (c) potentially material in amount as compared to our Available Cash before Reserves measure. Those expenditures will be discretionary (or non-mandatory) in nature because we will have significant discretion as to whether or when we incur them. We will not be forced to incur them in order to continue to operate the related assets in a safe and reliable manner. If we chose not to make those expenditures, we would be able to continue to operate those assets economically, although in lieu of maintenance capital expenditures, we would incur increased operating expenses, including maintenance expenses. An example of a discretionary (or non-mandatory) maintenance capital expenditure would be replacing an older marine vessel with a new marine vessel with substantially similar specifications, even though one could continue to economically operate the older vessel in spite of its increasing maintenance and other operating expenses.
In summary, as we continue to expand certain non-pipeline portions of our business, we are experiencing changes in the nature (discretionary vs. non-discretionary), timing and amount of our maintenance capital expenditures that merit a more detailed review and analysis than was required historically. Management’s recently increasing ability to determine if and when to incur certain maintenance capital expenditures is relevant to the manner in which we analyze aspects of our business relating to discretionary and non-discretionary expenditures. We believe it would be inappropriate to derive our Available Cash before Reserves measure by deducting discretionary maintenance capital expenditures, which we believe are similar in nature in this context to certain other discretionary expenditures, such as growth capital expenditures, distributions/dividends and equity buybacks. Unfortunately, not all maintenance capital expenditures are clearly discretionary or non-discretionary in nature. Therefore, we developed a measure, maintenance capital utilized, that we believe is more useful in the determination of Available Cash before Reserves. Our maintenance capital utilized measure, which is described in more detail below, constitutes a proxy for non-discretionary maintenance capital expenditures and it takes into consideration the relationship among maintenance capital expenditures, operating expenses and depreciation from period to period.
Maintenance Capital Utilized
We believe our maintenance capital utilized measure is the most useful quarterly maintenance capital requirements measure to use to derive our Available Cash before Reserves measure. We define our maintenance capital utilized measure as that portion of the amount of previously incurred maintenance capital expenditures that we utilize during the relevant quarter, which would be equal to the sum of the maintenance capital expenditures we have incurred for each project/component in prior quarters allocated ratably over the useful lives of those projects/components.
Because we did not initially use our maintenance capital utilized measure, our future maintenance capital utilized calculations will reflect the utilization of solely those maintenance capital expenditures incurred since December 31, 2013.
Commitments and Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements
Contractual Obligations and Commercial Commitments
    There have been no material changes to the commitments and obligations reflected in our Annual Report.
Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements
    We have no off-balance sheet arrangements, special purpose entities, or financing partnerships, other than as disclosed under “Contractual Obligations and Commercial Commitments” in our Annual Report, nor do we have any debt or equity triggers based upon our unit or commodity prices.
Forward Looking Statements
The statements in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q that are not historical information may be “forward looking statements” as defined under federal law. All statements, other than historical facts, included in this document that address activities, events or developments that we expect or anticipate will or may occur in the future, including things such as plans for growth of the business, future capital expenditures, competitive strengths, goals, references to future goals or intentions, estimated or projected future financial performance, our expectations regarding the potential impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, the impact of our cost saving measures and the amount of such cost savings, and other such references are forward-looking statements, and historical performance is not necessarily indicative of future performance. These forward-looking statements are identified as any statement that does not relate strictly to historical or current facts. They use words such as “anticipate,” “believe,” “continue,” “estimate,” “expect,” “forecast,” “goal,” “intend,” “may,” “could,” “plan,” “position,” “projection,” “strategy,” “should” or “will,” or the negative of those terms or other variations of them or by comparable terminology. In particular, statements, expressed or implied, concerning future actions, conditions or events or future operating results or the ability to generate sales, income or cash flow are forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements are not guarantees of performance. They involve risks, uncertainties and assumptions. Future actions, conditions or events and future results of operations may differ materially from those expressed in these forward-looking statements. Many of the factors that will determine these results are beyond our ability or the ability of our affiliates to control or predict. Specific factors that could cause actual results to differ from those in the forward-looking statements include, among others:
47

demand for, the supply of, our assumptions about, changes in forecast data for, and price trends related to crude oil, liquid petroleum, natural gas, NaHS, soda ash, and caustic soda, all of which may be affected by economic activity, capital expenditures by energy producers, weather, alternative energy sources, international events, pandemics (including Covid-19), the actions of OPEC and other oil exporting nations, conservation and technological advances;
