Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

Underwriting Agreement

On July 1, 2014, Western Gas Equity Partners, LP (the "Partnership") entered into an Underwriting Agreement by and among the Partnership, Western Gas Equity Holdings, LLC, the general partner of the Partnership (the "General Partner"), and Western Gas Resources, Inc. (the "Selling Unitholder"), on the one hand, and Wells Fargo Securities, LLC, Citigroup Global Markets Inc., Goldman, Sachs & Co., Morgan Stanley & Co. LLC, Barclays Capital Inc., UBS Securities LLC, Credit Suisse Securities (USA) LLC, Deutsche Bank Securities Inc. and RBC Capital Markets, LLC, as representatives of the several underwriters named therein (the "Underwriters"), on the other hand, relating to the sale of common units representing limited partner interests in the Partnership (the "Common Units") by the Selling Unitholder. The Underwriting Agreement provides for the offer and sale (the "Offering") by the Selling Unitholder, and purchase by the Underwriters, of 5,000,000 Common Units (the "Firm Units") at a price to the public of $60.19 per Common Unit ($58.311 per Common Unit, net of underwriting discounts). On July 1, 2014, the Underwriters notified the Partnership and the Selling Unitholder of their election to exercise their over-allotment option in full, pursuant to the terms of the Underwriting Agreement, for 750,000 additional Common Units (the "Additional Units" and, together with the Firm Units, the "Units"). The material terms of the Offering are described in the prospectus, dated July 1, 2014 (the "Prospectus"), filed by the Partnership with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "Commission") on July 2, 2014, pursuant to Rule 424(b) 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-3 (File No. 333-193163), which became effective on January 15, 2014.

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

The Offering of the Units closed on July 7, 2014. The Partnership did not receive any proceeds from the sale of the Units.

The foregoing description is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Underwriting Agreement, which is attached as Exhibit 1.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and incorporated in this Item 1.01 by reference.

Relationships

Each of the Selling Unitholder and the General Partner is an indirect wholly owned subsidiary of Anadarko Petroleum Corporation. As a result, certain individuals, including officers and directors of the General Partner, serve as officers and/or directors of the Selling Unitholder as well.

Certain of the Underwriters and their affiliates have in the past, and may in the future, perform investment banking, commercial banking, advisory and other services for the Partnership and its affiliates from time to time for which they have received, and may in the future receive, customary fees and expenses.
