* 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.

Purpose of Amendment

This Amendment No. 2 (this “ Amendment ”) to the Transaction Statement on Schedule 13E-3 filed by PennTex Midstream Partners, LP, a Delaware limited partnership (the “ Partnership ”), and PennTex Midstream GP, LLC, the general partner of the Partnership (the “ General Partner ”), with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “ SEC ”) on June 7, 2017, as amended by Amendment No. 1 thereto filed with the SEC on June 19, 2017 (the “ Schedule 13E-3 ”), relates to the offer by Energy Transfer Partners, L.P., a Delaware limited partnership (“ ETP ”), to purchase all outstanding common units representing limited partner interests (the “ Common Units ”) of the Partnership not owned by ETP, upon the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the Offer to Purchase dated May 18, 2017, as amended, and in the related letter of transmittal (which, together with any amendments or supplements thereto, collectively constitute the “ Offer ”). This Amendment is being filed by the General Partner and the Partnership, which is the issuer of the Common Units.

The information in the Schedule 13E-3 is incorporated in this Amendment by reference to all of the applicable items in the Schedule 13E-3, except that such information is hereby amended and supplemented to the extent specifically provided in this Amendment.

Item 15. Additional Information

(c)

Other Material Information. The Offer expired at 5:00 p.m., Eastern Time, on June 19, 2017 (the “ Expiration Time ”). As of the Expiration Time approximately 12,360,503 Common Units, including 601,526 Common Units delivered through notices of guaranteed delivery, were validly tendered and accepted for purchase by ETP.

The number of Common Units validly tendered prior to the Expiration Time satisfies the non-waivable condition that not less than a majority of the Common Units held by unitholders that are not affiliates of ETP be validly tendered, and satisfies the condition that, following the closing of the Offer, ETP and its affiliates own at least 16,571,405 Common Units, representing greater than 80% of the outstanding Common Units. ETP has announced that, pursuant to Section 15.1 of the First Amended and Restated Agreement of Limited Partnership of the Partnership (the “ Partnership Agreement ”), it intends to exercise the right, assigned to ETP by the General Partner, to purchase all of the remaining Common Units that were not tendered in the Offer and remain outstanding on June 30, 2017 (the “ Limited Call Right ”). ETP expects to mail to each unitholder of record who did not tender its Common Units in the Offer a notice of election to purchase such Common Units pursuant to Section 15.1(b) of the Partnership Agreement, and such holder will receive, for each Common Unit, $20.00 in cash, which represents the price paid by ETP for the Common Units in the Offer.

Upon the consummation of the Limited Call Right, ETP will own all of the economic interests of the Partnership and will be entitled to all of the benefits resulting from those interests. In addition, the Common Units will cease to be listed on the NASDAQ Global Select Market or publicly traded.
