HOUSTON, Dec. 31, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Eagle Rock Energy Partners, L.P. (Nasdaq:EROC) (the "Partnership") announced today that the Partnership has received increased commitments from its lending group under its existing senior secured credit facility. Total commitments increased from $675 million to $820 million, supported by the Partnership's existing lenders and by the addition of Whitney Bank to the lending group. Concurrent with the increase in commitments, the Partnership and lending group amended the facility to: (i) allow for a temporary step-up in the Total Leverage Ratio from 4.50x to 4.75x through the third quarter of 2013; (ii) institute a new Senior Secured Leverage Ratio of 2.85x through the third quarter of 2013; and (iii) increase the amount of permitted "other Investments" as defined in the Partnership's existing credit agreement.

"We appreciate the support shown by our lender group, which includes institutions continuing long-term relationships with Eagle Rock as well as a new strategic partner," said Jeffrey P. Wood, Eagle Rock's Chief Financial Officer. "The increased facility size reflects the Partnership's recent growth and will provide additional flexibility as Eagle Rock continues to execute on its organic growth projects."
