The material provisions of the Offering are described in the prospectus, dated January 14, 2014, filed with the Commission on January 15, 2014, pursuant to Rule 424(b) under the Securities Act (the "Prospectus").

Contribution, Conveyance and Assumption Agreement

The description of the Contribution Agreement (as defined below) provided below under Item 2.01 is incorporated in this Item 1.01 by reference. A copy of the Contribution Agreement is filed as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and incorporated herein by reference.

Omnibus Agreement

On January 21, 2014, in connection with the closing of the Offering, the Partnership entered into an Omnibus Agreement (the "Omnibus Agreement") with Cypress Energy Partners GP, LLC, the general partner of the Partnership (the "General Partner"), Cypress Energy Holdings, LLC ("Cypress Holdings"), Cypress Energy Management, LLC ("CEM"), Cypress Energy Partners, LLC ("Cypress LLC"), Cypress Energy Partners - TIR, LLC ("CEP TIR"), Foley Inspection Services ULC ("TIR Foley"), Tulsa Inspection Resources, LLC ("TIR"), Tulsa Inspection Resources - Canada ULC ("TIR Canada"), Tulsa Inspection Resources Holdings, LLC ("TIR Holdings"), Tulsa Inspection Resources - Nondestructive Examination, LLC ("TIR NDE," together with TIR Foley, TIR, TIR Canada and TIR Holdings, the "TIR entities"), Mr. Charles C. Stephenson, Jr. and Ms. Cynthia Field. As more fully described in the Prospectus, the Omnibus Agreement addresses the following matters:

the Partnership's payment of an annual administrative fee initially in the amount of $4.0 million to be paid in quarterly installments to Cypress Holdings for providing the Partnership with certain partnership overhead services, including for certain executive management services by certain officers of the General Partner, and compensation expense for all employees required to manage and operate the Partnership's business. This fee also includes the incremental general and administrative expenses the Partnership will incur as a result of being a publicly traded partnership;

limitations on the amount of indebtedness CEP TIR may incur under the Partnership's $120 million secured credit agreement with Deutsche Bank AG, New York Branch and BMO Harris Bank and the allocation of certain interest expenses to the TIR entities;

the Partnership's right of first offer on Cypress Holdings' and its subsidiaries' assets used in, and entities primarily engaged in, providing saltwater disposal and other water and environmental services and pipeline inspection and integrity services, including the remaining interest in the TIR entities; and

indemnification of the Partnership by Cypress Holdings for certain environmental and other liabilities, including events and conditions associated with the Partnership's operation of assets that occur prior to the closing of the Offering and the Partnership's obligation to indemnify Cypress Holdings for events and conditions associated with the operation of the Partnership's assets that occur after the closing of the Offering and for environmental liabilities related to the Partnership's assets to the extent Cypress Holdings is not required to indemnify the Partnership.

So long as Cypress Holdings controls the General Partner, the Omnibus Agreement will remain in full force and effect, unless the Partnership and Cypress Holdings agree to terminate it sooner. If Cypress Holdings ceases to control the General Partner, either party may terminate the Omnibus Agreement, provided that the indemnification obligations will remain in full force and effect in accordance with their terms. The Partnership and Cypress Holdings may agree to amend the Omnibus Agreement; however, amendments that the General Partner determines are adverse to the Partnership's unitholders will also require the approval of the conflicts committee.
