Item 1.01                      Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.



As previously disclosed, on October 3, 2019, EP Energy Corporation (together with EP Energy LLC, the "Company"), and certain of its direct and indirect subsidiaries (collectively with the Company, the "Debtors") filed voluntary petitions (the "Chapter 11 Cases") in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Texas (the "Bankruptcy Court") seeking relief under chapter 11 of title 11 of the United States Code (the "Bankruptcy Code"). The Chapter 11 Cases are being jointly administered under the caption "In re: EP Energy Corporation, et al., Case No. 19-35654." Court filings and other information related to the Chapter 11 Cases are available at the website administered by the claims agent, Prime Clerk, at https://cases.primeclerk.com/EPEnergy.

In connection with the Chapter 11 Cases and pursuant to an order of the Bankruptcy Court entered on November 25, 2019 (the "Order"), EP Energy LLC entered into a Senior Secured Superpriority Debtor-In-Possession Credit Agreement (the "DIP Credit Agreement") with JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., as administrative agent and the lenders under EP Energy LLC's prepetition reserve based credit facility (the "Prepetition RBL Facility") which are party thereto as lenders (the "DIP Lenders").

Under the DIP Credit Agreement and the Order, a portion of the Prepetition RBL Facility was converted into commitments under the DIP Credit Agreement which provides for a $314,710,456 debtor-in-possession senior secured superpriority revolving credit facility (the "DIP Facility", and the loans thereunder, the "DIP Loans"), and which includes a letter of credit sublimit of $50,000,000.

The Debtors have received an underwritten commitment from the DIP Lenders to convert their DIP Loans and their remaining claims under the Prepetition RBL Facility into a $629,420,912 exit senior secured reserve-based revolving credit facility subject to certain conditions set forth therein, which will be evidenced by a senior secured revolving credit agreement, by and among EP Energy LLC, as borrower, the lenders party thereto from time to time, and JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., as administrative agent.

EP Energy LLC will use the proceeds of the DIP Facility for, among other things, (i) the acquisition, development and exploration of oil and gas properties, for working capital and general corporate purposes, (ii) the payment of professional fees as provided for in the Order, (iii) the payment of expenses incurred in the administration of the Chapter 11 Cases or as permitted by the certain orders and (iv) payments due thereunder or under the Order.

The maturity date of the DIP Facility is the earlier of (a) November 25, 2020, (b) the effective date of an "Acceptable Plan of Reorganization" (as defined in the DIP Credit Agreement), (c) the closing of a sale of substantially all of the equity or assets of EP Energy LLC (unless consummated pursuant to an Acceptable Plan of Reorganization), or (d) the termination of the DIP Facility during the continuation of an event of default.

The DIP Loans will bear interest at a rate per annum equal to (i) adjusted LIBOR plus an applicable margin of 3.50% or (ii) an alternative base rate plus an applicable margin of 2.50%, in each case, as selected by EP Energy LLC. Any undrawn delayed draw term loans will be subject to an undrawn fee at a rate per annum equal to 0.50%.

The DIP Facility is secured by a senior secured superpriority perfected security interest on substantially all assets of EP Energy LLC and any subsidiary guarantors. The security interests and liens

are further subject to certain carve-outs and permitted liens, as set forth in the DIP Credit Agreement and the Order.

Item 2.03                      Creation of a Direct Financial Obligation.


The information set forth under Item 1.01 regarding the DIP Credit Agreement is incorporated by reference into this Item 2.03.
