TRANSACTION VALUATION*   AMOUNT OF FILING FEE+
$280,253,200   $32,481.35
 
* Estimated for purposes of calculating the amount of the filing fee only. The amount assumes the purchase of all outstanding common units representing limited partner interests (the “Common Units”) of PennTex Midstream Partners, LP (“PennTex”) not owned by Energy Transfer Partners, L.P. at a purchase price of $20.00 per Common Unit, net to the seller in cash. On May 1, 2017, 20,714,256 Common Units were outstanding, of which 6,701,596 are owned by Energy Transfer Partners, L.P. Accordingly, this calculation assumes the purchase of 14,012,660 Common Units.
+ The amount of the filing fee is calculated in accordance with Rule 0-11 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and Fee Rate Advisory # 1 for Fiscal Year 2017 issued by the Securities and Exchange Commission, by multiplying the transaction valuation by 0.0001159.
