Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On June 21, 2013, Crestwood Niobrara LLC ("Crestwood Niobrara"), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Crestwood Midstream Partners LP (the "Partnership"), entered into a definitive agreement (the "Purchase Agreement") with RKI Exploration & Production, LLC ("RKI") to acquire RKI's 50% interest in Jackalope Gas Gathering Services, L.L.C. ("Jackalope") for approximately $108 million (the "Transaction"). Access Midstream Partners, L.P. ("Access") owns the remaining 50% interest in and operates Jackalope. As part of the Transaction, Access will continue to provide field operations and construction management for Jackalope and Crestwood Niobrara will assume the commercial development role for the joint venture. The Jackalope gathering and processing system is currently comprised of approximately 100 miles of gathering pipelines and 9,400 horsepower of compression equipment located in Converse County, Wyoming.

Crestwood Niobrara and RKI have made customary representations, warranties and covenants in the Purchase Agreement and the completion of the Transaction is subject to the satisfaction or waiver of customary conditions, including receipt of all applicable governmental approvals. The purchase price is subject to customary adjustments. The Purchase Agreement is subject to termination by either party for various reasons, including their mutual written consent and the failure of the Transaction to be consummated on or before 90 days from the date of the Purchase Agreement. The Transaction is expected to close during the third quarter of 2013.

In connection with the Transaction and expected future infrastructure development, Crestwood Niobrara and GE Energy Financial Services ("GE EFS") have agreed to a financing arrangement whereby GE EFS will fund, subject to additional approvals, 75% of the Transaction and future capital contributions for Crestwood Niobrara's 50% interest in Jackalope, up to $150 million of preferred equity. The remaining contribution for Crestwood Niobrara's interest will be funded with available borrowing capacity under the Partnership's revolving credit facility.

RKI is a privately-owned, independent exploration and production company focused in the Powder River, Permian and Denver-Julesberg Basins in which First Reserve owns a significant minority ownership position. First Reserve indirectly controls the Partnership's general partner and is also the Partnership's largest common unit holder.
