1.What is a master limited partnership (MLP)?
 An MLP is a limited partnership that is publicly traded on a securities exchange. It combines the tax benefits of a limited partnership with the liquidity of publicly traded securities. Limited partners are called unit holders and they receive cash distributions rather than dividends. MLPs are not generally subject to federal or state income tax. Instead, all income, gains, losses and deductions of the partnership are passed through to its unit holders, who report their share of these items on their individual tax returns, as if they had incurred them directly. An MLP has one or more general partners who manage the partnership; unit holders do not directly participate in the management of the partnership.

2.Will QR Energy pay a distribution? When and how much?
 Beginning January 2014, QR Energy converted to a monthly distribution policy. Each month we will issue a press release to give investors notice of the distribution amount, record date and payable date. The unit holders on record at the close of business on the record date will be entitled to the cash distribution. The NYSE sets the ex-distribution date, which is generally two business days before the record date. Unit holders must purchase their units before the ex-distribution date to be entitled to the cash distribution.

3.How are the distributions reported for tax purposes?
 Unit holders will be taxed on their percentage of partnership taxable income. Each unit holder will be provided with a Schedule K-1 annually. QR Energy will make Schedule K-1s available on our website by the end of March.

4.Does QR Energy offer a Distribution Reinvestment Plan (DRIP)?
 QR Energy does not have a distribution reinvestment plan at this time.

5.How do I access QR Energy’s earnings conference calls?
 Prior to our quarterly earnings release, QRE will issue a separate press release stating the day and time of our earnings conference call, along with dial-in and replay information. Our press releases are available in the investor relations portion of our website and you may receive them via email by signing up for our email alerts.

6.Does QR Energy host an annual meeting?
 QR Energy does not plan to host an annual meeting at this time.
