Exhibit 99.1



DALLAS, June 24/PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -— Crosstex Energy, L.P. (Nasdaq: XTEX) (the “Partnership”) announced the placement of approximately 1,495,000 Senior Subordinated Units to Kayne Anderson MLP Investment Company and two funds managed by Tortoise Capital Advisers, LLC. The Senior Subordinated Units were purchased at $33.44 each, and convert to Common Units (on a one-for-one basis) on February 24, 2006. Until their conversion to Common Units, the Senior Subordinated Units will receive no distributions from the Partnership. Kayne Anderson is buying 70 percent of the Senior Subordinated Units and Tortoise is buying 30 percent of the Units. Net proceeds from the private placement, including the general partner’s proportionate capital contribution and expenses associated with the sale, will be approximately $51.1 million.

“The placement of this equity, which will receive no distribution, allows us to continue the construction of our North Texas Pipeline, with no dilutive effect to our distributable cash flow during the construction phase, while continuing to maintain our conservative balance sheet,” said Barry E. Davis, Chief Executive Officer of Crosstex. “We anticipate that the Senior Subordinated Units will not convert to Common Units and be eligible for a distribution until after the scheduled completion of our North Texas Pipeline construction.”

In connection with the sale of the units, Crosstex has entered into a registration rights agreement providing for the registered sale of the Common Units underlying the Senior Subordinated Units. The Senior Subordinated Units have not been registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), or any state securities laws, and unless so registered, the Senior Subordinated Units may not be offered or sold in the United States except pursuant to an exemption from, or in a transaction not subject to, the registration requirements of the Securities Act and applicable state securities laws. This news release does not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy the securities described herein.
