In connection with the May 2019 redetermination under the revolving credit facility, the borrowing base was increased 50% from $200 million to $300 million and total commitments were increased from $200 million to $225 million (or up to $300 million if the accordion feature is exercised).

Increases in commitments pursuant to the revolving credit facility's accordion feature are subject to the satisfaction of certain conditions, including obtaining additional commitments from new or existing lenders.

Davis Ravnaas, President and Chief Financial Officer of the Company's general partner, said, We are pleased with the increase of the borrowing base and total commitments under our revolving credit facility, which enhances our flexibility and liquidity. We are also appreciative of the continued support from the eight banks in our credit facility syndicate. We view these banks as our long-term partners and believe they have played a key role in facilitating our substantial growth over the last year.
