Underwriting Agreement

On May 12, 2014, Genesis Energy, L.P. (the "Partnership"), Genesis Energy Finance Corporation (together with the Partnership, the "Issuers") and certain subsidiary guarantors entered into an Underwriting Agreement (the "Underwriting Agreement") with RBC Capital Markets, LLC, as representative of a group of underwriters named in the Underwriting Agreement, and Raymond James and Associates, Inc., as qualified independent underwriter, in connection with the Issuers' public offering of senior notes.

The Underwriting Agreement provides for, among other things, the issuance and sale by the Issuers of $350 million in aggregate principal amount of 5.625% senior unsecured notes due 2024 (the "Notes"), guaranteed by certain subsidiary guarantors of the Partnership (the "Guarantees" and, together with the Notes, the "Securities"). The Securities have been registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"), pursuant to the Partnership's effective Registration Statement on Form S-3 (Registration No. 333-180876), as supplemented by the Prospectus Supplement dated May 12, 2014, relating to the Securities, filed with the SEC pursuant to Rule 424(b) of the Securities Act (the "Prospectus Supplement").

The Issuers 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 because of any of those liabilities.

The Underwriting Agreement contains representations, warranties and other provisions that were made or agreed to, among other things, to provide the parties thereto with specified rights and obligations and to allocate risk among them. Accordingly, the Underwriting Agreement should not be relied upon as constituting a description of the state of affairs of any of the parties thereto or their affiliates at the time it was entered into or otherwise.

A copy of the Underwriting Agreement is filed as Exhibit 1.1 hereto and is incorporated herein by reference. The description of the Underwriting Agreement contained herein is qualified in its entirety by the full text of such exhibit.

The underwriters and their respective affiliates have in the past performed commercial banking, investment banking and advisory services for the Partnership from time to time for which they have received customary fees and reimbursement of expenses and may, from time to time, engage in transactions with and perform services for the Partnership in the ordinary course of their business for which they may receive customary fees and reimbursement of expenses. Affiliates of substantially all of the underwriters are lenders under the Partnership's revolving credit facility, and as such will be entitled to be repaid with the net proceeds of the Securities offering that are used to repay borrowings under the revolving credit facility and will receive their pro rata portion of such repayment. In addition, an affiliate of the Trustee is an underwriter in the Securities offering.


Senior Notes/ Indenture and Supplemental Indenture

The terms of the Notes are governed by an Indenture (the "Base Indenture") among the Issuers, the subsidiary guarantors party thereto, and U.S. Bank National Association, as trustee (the "Trustee"), dated May 15, 2014, as supplemented by the Supplemental Indenture thereto (the "Supplemental Indenture"), dated May 15, 2014, among the Issuers, the subsidiary guarantors party thereto and the Trustee.

The Notes are senior unsecured obligations of the Issuers and rank equal in right of payment with all of the Partnership's other existing and future senior unsecured indebtedness, including $350 million aggregate principal amount of the Issuers' 7.875% senior notes due 2018 and $350 million aggregate principal amount of the Issuers' 5.750% senior notes due 2021.
