Buckeye Partners, NYSEBPL headquartered in Houston, Texas in the United States, is a distributor of petroleum in the East and Midwest of the country. Buckeye manages over 6,200 miles (10,000 km) of petroleum pipelines, 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 defunct Penn Central railroad.[3]

Its predecessor company, the Buckeye Pipe Line Company, was founded in 1886 as part of John D. Rockefeller's Standard Oil trust.[4]

Buckeye pipelines supply aviation fuel to major airports in New York City. 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 1800 people.

Its headquarters are located in Greenway Plaza.[5]
