TAC Energy Moves Terminal Operations into JP Energy Partners LP

TAC President & CEO Greg Arnold Appointed to Board of Directors

 

DALLAS, Texas (December 13, 2012) – TAC Energy, a division of Truman Arnold Companies (TAC) has announced that it is combining its Caddo Mills, TX and North Little Rock, AR terminal operations into a master limited partnership with JP Energy Partners, LP (JP Energy).  Terms of this agreement were not disclosed.

Prior to the transaction TAC owned 100% of the Caddo Mills terminal and 100% of the North Little Rock terminal, which was previously co-owned with the shareholders of Coulson Oil Company and branded Arkansas Terminaling and Trading.  In place since the 1980s, this has been a “highly valued relationship” said Mike Coulson, Chairman of the Board of Coulson Oil Company.  “We have enjoyed our longstanding relationship with TAC and are now equally excited to be tapping into JP Energy’s expertise.”

According to Greg Arnold, President & CEO of TAC, this move will allow the privately owned company to place a greater emphasis on its energy marketing and aviation services business, as TAC continues to expand its national footprint.  TAC currently markets refined fuels in 48 states and aviation operations in 14 major markets.

Greg Arnold continued, “TAC partnering with JP Energy is a synergistic move for both companies.  The terminals have been solid performers for us and come with a team of associates that are second to none. Adding these operations to JP Energy’s network of midstream assets is a perfect complement to their business model.  In addition, TAC Energy’s supply & logistics services to our wholesale customers will be strengthened by utilizing the JP Energy supply chain.  It’s a win for both companies and our customers.”

In conjunction with the move, TAC President & CEO Greg Arnold will be appointed to the JP Energy Board of Directors.  J. Patrick Barley, President & CEO of JP Energy stated, “The addition of Greg to our board brings us the experience and intellectual capital of one of the leading independent oil marketers in the nation. This combined with TAC’s experience in terminal operations, trading, and supply & logistics will be a tremendous benefit to JP Energy.”

In May, 2012, TAC’s general aviation division, TAC Air, completed its largest acquisition to date by purchasing Keystone Aviation, LLC and rebranding the company’s Salt Lake City (KSLC) and Provo (KPVU) FBOs TAC Air. The TAC Air company also offers aircraft charter, maintenance, management and sales & brokerage services and will remain based at SLC operating under the Keystone Aviation brand.

TAC Air CHA Hosts Second Annual “Cool Yule Fly-In”

Event to Benefit Area Children and Adults from the Partnership.

 

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (December 6, 2012) – Christmas will come early this year for some area women and children this Friday, December 21 from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the TAC Air South Ramp located at The Chattanooga Metropolitan Airport.

The second annual ‘Cool Yule Fly-In’ is designed to share holiday cheer with families who are spending their holidays at the Partnership’s Domestic Violence Center as well as area foster care boys.  Santa will fly in to TAC South in style, in a bright red restored Piper Apache Antique airplane to greet children from the Partnership.  If weather permits, Santa will be offering rides to the families, many whom have never seen a private aircraft much less been able to ride in one.

Sandra Hollet, CEO of the Partnership for Families, Children and Adults said, “Last year’s Cool Yule Fly-In was such a success and a fun holiday experience for the families from the Partnership.  We are extremely grateful for the support of TAC Air and we truly appreciate them hosting this special event.”

Santa’s fly-in will be in conjunction with the cookout that TAC Air hosts each month for its customers.  TAC will also be providing gifts and lunch with Santa for the children and families visiting.  Pam McAllister, General Manager for TAC Air Chattanooga said,  “We cannot wait to host this special event again as this is something we have looked forward to all year.  The children will have the opportunity to observe aviation close up and many will experience their first flight in an aircraft along with Santa this year.”

TAC Air Chattanooga is the first of the company’s 14 FBOs to host the Cool Yule Fly-In.
