Underwriting Agreement

On January 14, 2014, Cypress Energy Partners, L.P. (the "Partnership") entered into an Underwriting Agreement (the "Underwriting Agreement"), by and among the Partnership, Cypress Energy Partners GP, LLC (the "General Partner"), Cypress Energy Partners, LLC ("OLLC"), Cypress Energy Holdings, LLC ("Holdings"), Cypress Energy Holdings II, LLC ("Holdings II") and Cypress Energy Partners - TIR, LLC ("CEP TIR" and, together with the Partnership, the General Partner, OLLC, Holdings and Holdings II, the "Partnership Parties") and Raymond James & Associates, Inc., Robert W. Baird & Co. Incorporated, Stifel, Nicolaus & Company, Incorporated and BMO Capital Markets Corp., as representatives of the several underwriters named therein (the "Underwriters"), providing for the offer and sale by the Partnership (the "Offering"), and purchase by the Underwriters, of 3,750,000 common units representing limited partner interests in the Partnership at a price to the public of $20.00 per common unit ($18.70 per common unit, net of underwriting discounts). Pursuant to the Underwriting Agreement, the Partnership also granted the Underwriters an option for a period of 30 days (the "Option") to purchase up to an additional 562,500 common units (the "Additional Units"). On January 17, 2014, the Underwriters exercised the Option in full.

The material terms of the Offering are described in the prospectus, dated January 14, 2014 (the "Prospectus"), filed by the Partnership with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (the "Commission") on January 15, 2014 pursuant to Rule 424(b)(4) under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"). The Offering is registered with the Commission pursuant to a Registration Statement on Form S-1, as amended (File No. 333-192328), initially filed by the Partnership on November 13, 2013.

The Underwriting Agreement contains customary representations, warranties and agreements of the Partnership Parties, and customary conditions to closing, obligations of the parties and termination provisions. The Partnership Parties have agreed to indemnify the Underwriters against certain liabilities, including liabilities under the Securities Act, or to contribute to payments the Underwriters may be required to make in respect of those liabilities.

The Offering closed on January 21, 2014. The Partnership received proceeds (net of underwriting discounts and structuring fees but before offering expenses) from the Offering of approximately $80.2 million. As described in the Prospectus, all of the net proceeds from the sale of the common units and Additional Units will be distributed to Holdings II as reimbursement for certain capital expenditures it incurred with respect to assets contributed to the Partnership.

As more fully described under the caption "Underwriting" in the Prospectus, certain of the Underwriters may from time to time in the future provide investment banking and financial advisory and other financial services in the ordinary course of their business for the Partnership and its affiliates for which they may receive customary fees and expenses.

The foregoing description is not complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Underwriting Agreement, which is filed as Exhibit 1.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and incorporated in this Item 1.01 by reference.
