Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement

Second Amendment to Third Amended and Restated Omnibus Agreement

In connection with the completion of the Transactions described in Item 2.01, below, on March 31, 2013, Exterran Partners, L.P. entered into a Second Amendment to Third Amended and Restated Omnibus Agreement (the "Omnibus Amendment") with Exterran Holdings, Inc. ("EXH"), Exterran Energy Solutions, L.P. ("EESLP"), Exterran GP LLC ("GP LLC"), Exterran General Partner, L.P. ("GP") and EXLP Operating LLC ("EXLP Operating"). The omnibus agreement governs several relationships between us and EXH, including:

1. Certain agreements not to compete between us and our affiliates, on the one hand, and EXH and its affiliates, on the other hand;

2. EXH's obligation to provide all operational staff, corporate staff and support services reasonably necessary to run our business and our obligation to reimburse EXH for the provision of such services, subject to certain limitations;

3. The terms under which we, EXH and our respective affiliates may transfer compression equipment;

4. The terms under which we may purchase newly-fabricated compression equipment from EXH's affiliates;

5. EXH's licensing of certain intellectual property to us, including our and EXH's logos; and

6. Our obligation to indemnify EXH for certain liabilities, and EXH's obligation to indemnify us for certain liabilities.

The omnibus agreement is hereby incorporated by reference to Exhibit 10.1 to our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q filed on August 4, 2011 and Exhibit 10.1 to our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q filed on May 7, 2012. The description of the omnibus agreement is incorporated by reference to our Current Report on Form 8-K filed on June 13, 2011 and our Current Report on Form 8-K filed on March 13, 2012.

The Omnibus Amendment amends the omnibus agreement to, among other things:

1. Increase the cap on selling, general and administrative costs allocable from EXH to us based on such costs incurred by EXH on our behalf and any such costs incurred directly by us or our subsidiaries (the "SG&A Limit") from $10.5 million per quarter to $12.5 million per quarter through December 31, 2013, and from $12.5 million per quarter to $15.0 million per quarter beginning January 1, 2014;

2. Increase the cap on cost of sales allocable from EXH to us based on such costs incurred by EXH on our behalf and any such costs incurred directly by us or our subsidiaries (the "Cost of Sales Limit") from $21.75 per horsepower per quarter to $22.50 per horsepower per quarter beginning January 1, 2014;

3. Extend the terms of the SG&A Limit and the Cost of Sales Limit for an additional year such that they will now terminate on December 31, 2014; and

4. Extend the terms of certain non-competition and equipment transfer provisions for an additional year such that they will now terminate on December 31, 2014.

Each of the parties to the omnibus agreement, other than EXH, is a direct or indirect subsidiary of EXH. As a result, certain individuals, including officers of EXH and officers and directors of GP LLC, serve as officers and/or directors of more than one of such entities. Also, EXH holds (as of the date of this Form 8-K, after giving effect to the common units issued to EXH in connection with the completion of the Transactions described in Item 2.01, below) an approximate 39% limited partner interest in us through its subsidiaries and an approximate 2% general partner interest and incentive distribution rights in us through its indirect ownership of GP, our general partner.
