Buckeye Partners, NYSEBPL headquartered in Houston, Texas in the, United States, is one of the primary distributors of petroleum in the eastern and mid-western portions of the United States. Buckeye manages over 6,200 miles (10,000 km) of petroleum pipeline distribution in these areas, as well as over 100 truck loading terminals. Many of the pipelines follow historic Northeastern railroad rights-of-way, and the firm is a surviving fragment of the former Penn Central railroad. [1]

Buckeye pipelines supply aviation fuel to major airports in New York City, and the firm's property was listed by United States federal prosecutors as being among the targets of the 2007 John F. Kennedy International Airport attack plot.

The company employs approximately 1200 people.

Its headquarters is located in Suite 600 of One Greenway Plaza.[2]
