USA Compression Partners, LP (NYSE: USAC) (the “Partnership”) today announced the closing of the Fifth Amended and Restated Credit Agreement. The amendment provides for an increase in the facility capacity from $600 million to $850 million and an extension of the maturity to 2018. In addition, the revolving credit facility contains an accordion feature whereby it can be expanded to $950 million under certain conditions. The amendment to the Partnership’s revolving credit facility reduces the applicable interest rate margins on borrowings and provides additional flexibility under the financial covenants.

As of September 30, 2013, the Partnership had approximately $390 million of variable-rate outstanding indebtedness under its revolving credit facility.

Long, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Partnership. “We view the strong initial commitments from several new institutions in our lender group as a strong vote of confidence in our Partnership.
