NuStar Energy LP unitholders approved the liquids terminal and pipeline operator’s merger with Energy Transfer’s Sunoco LP on May 1 in a special meeting, according to a press release.

NuStar Energy will merge with and into a merger subsidiary of Sunoco.

Approximately 69% of NuStar’s outstanding common unitholders voted in favor of the transaction. The final result of the special meeting will be disclosed in a filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

In early April, the pending merger cleared a U.S. Federal Trade Commission regulatory waiting period under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976, paving the way for the rest of the transaction’s completion.
