GOLAR LNG PARTNERS ANNOUNCES CLOSING OF EQUITY OFFERING AND PRIVATE
PLACEMENT TO GOLAR LNG LIMITED 
HAMILTON, BERMUDA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/07/12 --  Golar LNG Partners
LP (NASDAQ: GMLP) (the "Partnership") announced today that its
previously announced public offering of 4,300,000 common units
representing
limited partner interests (the "Offering") has closed. 
Golar GP LLC, the Partnership's general partner, contributed
approximately $3.6 million to the
Partnership to maintain its 2.0%
general partner interest in the Partnership.
 The Partnership also
announced today that it has closed a private placement of 1,524,590
common units to Golar LNG Limited ("Golar LNG") at a price of
$30.50
per common unit, the same price paid by the underwriter in the
Offering. 
The  Partnership  expects  to  use  the  net  proceeds  from  the
Offering, the concurrent  private placement and the general partner's
contribution to maintain
its  2% general partner interest to fund the
 cash portion of the purchase price
for  the previously  announced
acquisition  of the  LNG carrier, the Golar Grand
(the  "Golar  Grand
 Acquisition")  from  Golar  LNG,  as  well  as  for
general
partnership  purposes.   If  the  Golar  Grand  Acquisition 
does not close, the Partnership will use such net proceeds for
general partnership purposes. 
Morgan Stanley acted as the sole bookrunner in connection with the
Offering. 
Copies  of the prospectus supplement and accompanying base prospectus
related to the  Offering may  be obtained  from the  offices of
