HOUSTON, March 25, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Memorial Production Partners LP (Nasdaq:MEMP) announced today the closing of its previously announced public offering of common units representing limited partner interests in MEMP. Including the underwriters' option to purchase additional common units, which was exercised in full, MEMP sold a total of 9,775,000 common units at a price to the public of $18.35 per common unit.
