Blueknight was formerly known as SemGroup Energy Partners LP, a midstream spinoff of SemGroup LP. That company's bankruptcy in 2008 activated a loan default clause that put several hedge funds in control of the subsidiary.

Vitol, the U.S. subsidiary of the privately held Netherlands giant Vitol Group, bought SemGroup Energy Partners from Manchester Securities for an undisclosed sum last October. It changed the name to Blueknight within two months.
