Item 1.01 Entry Into Material Definitive Agreement.

On November 19, 2012, Atlas Barnett, LLC (the "Purchaser"), a wholly owned subsidiary of Atlas Resource Partners, L.P. (the "Company"), entered into a definitive agreement (the "Purchase Agreement") with MCN Energy Enterprises, LLC, a wholly-owned subsidiary of DTE Energy Company, to purchase DTE Gas Resources, LLC for $255 million in cash (the "Acquisition"). The purchase price is subject to certain post-closing adjustments based on, among other things, environmental and title defects, if any. The assets being acquired include interests in approximately 261 gross producing natural gas wells on over 88,000 net acres located primarily in Jack, Erath, Palo, Pinto and Clay Counties in the Fort Worth basin in North Texas. The closing of the Acquisition is expected to occur on or before December 31, 2012, and is subject to customary closing conditions. There can be no assurance that all of the closing conditions will be satisfied. The foregoing description is a brief summary of the Purchase Agreement, does not purport to be a complete statement of the parties' rights and obligations under the Purchase Agreement and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Purchase Agreement, which is attached hereto as Exhibit 2.1 and is incorporated by reference herein.

In connection with entering into the Purchase Agreement, the Company entered into a commitment letter with Wells Fargo Securities and Citigroup Global Market, Inc. (the "Lead Arrangers") on November 19, 2012 (the "Commitment Letter") to increase the borrowing base of the Company's senior secured revolving credit facility from $310 million to $410 million and to provide a second lien secured term loan facility in the principal amount of $100 million. The Commitment Letter contemplates (i) the commitment by each of the Lead Arrangers to provide the Company with the full amount of the increased borrowing base and the term loan facility at the closing of the transactions contemplated by the Purchase Agreement and (ii) that the Lead Arrangers will solicit commitments from other lenders to the increased facility, with the Lead Arrangers' commitment reduced on a dollar-for-dollar basis by the amount of any such commitments. Proceeds from this debt financing will fund a portion of the cash consideration required pursuant to the Purchase Agreement. The Commitment Letter expires on December 31, 2012, if the closing of the Acquisition has not occurred by such date.
