The partnership will not receive any proceeds from the offering and the number of its outstanding common units will not change.

Citigroup, Barclays Capital, BofA Merrill Lynch, JPMorgan and UBS Investment Bank will act as joint book-running managers of the offering.

Units of Plains All American Pipeline rose 45 cents to close the regular session at $63.18. In aftermarket trading, the units fell $2.15, or 3.4 percent, to $61.03.
