Explanation of Responses:
1. This Form 4 is jointly filed by Oiltanking Holding Americas, Inc. ("OTA"), Oiltanking GmbH ("GmbH") and Marquard & Bahls AG ("M&B"). OTA is a wholly owned subsidiary of GmbH, which is a wholly owned subsidiary of M&B. GmbH may be deemed to share beneficial ownership of OTA's interest in Oiltanking Partners, L.P., a Delaware limited partnership (the "Issuer), through its ability to control OTA. M&B may be deemed to share beneficial ownership of OTA's interest in the Issuer through its ability to control GmbH. Prior to the Transaction described in Footnote 3, OTA held 7,162,064 Common Units and 20,915,684 Subordinated Units and OTB Holdco, LLC ("OTB Holdco"), a wholly owned subsidiary of OTA, held 8,737,738 Common Units and 17,984,118 Subordinated Units. OTA may be deemed to share beneficial ownership in OTB Holdco's interest in the Issuer through its ability to control OTB Holdco.
2. The amount of securities beneficially owned prior to the reported transaction has been adjusted to reflect a two-for-one split of the Common and Subordinated Units of the Issuer that became effective on July 14, 2014.
