INDIANAPOLIS, April 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Calumet Specialty Products Partners, L.P. (NASDAQ: CLMT) ("Calumet" or the "Partnership") is providing its current assessment on the EPA's proposed regulation that gasoline contain no more than 10 parts per million of sulfur on an annual average basis by January 1, 2017.  Calumet's current facilities which produce gasoline do so in accordance with current regulatory standards and the Partnership intends to fully comply with any updated standards.  The Partnership's current assessment is that the proposed updated standards are not expected to have a material financial impact to Calumet.  Calumet's preliminary assessments of its operations indicate that capital spending requirements, if any, will be immaterial to comply with the proposed updated standards.
