Item 7.01.    Regulation FD Disclosure
On June 10, 2010, certain senior executive officers of the general partner of Magellan Midstream Partners, L.P. ("MMP") sold a portion of their personally held MMP common units for tax planning purposes. The common units sold specifically related to investments the officers made in the owner of MMP's general partner in 2003. Those investments were converted to MMP common units in September 2009 due to the simplification of MMP's capital structure which was approved by its unitholders at that time. A total of 238,089 MMP common units were sold in a private transaction in return for passive equity investments in Kayne Anderson MLP Investment Company (NYSE: KYN), a closed-end fund that invests principally in equity securities of energy-related master limited partnerships. Kayne Anderson has been a long-term investor in MMP and is currently MMP's largest unitholder.

MMP's senior executive officers remain optimistic about MMP's future. Following this transaction, those officers who reduced their ownership positions in MMP for tax planning purposes will continue to hold, on average, an ownership position in MMP that is more than six times their annual salary.


Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
Magellan Midstream Partners, L.P.
