EXPLANATORY NOTE
Martin Midstream Partners L.P. (the “Partnership”) is filing this Amendment No. 1 on Form 10-K/A to its Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2007 solely to correct certain typographical errors in the Financial Statements of Waskom Gas Processing Company for the year ended December 31, 2007, an affiliate accounted for by the equity method, which constituted a significant subsidiary. The line item “natural gas processing and other revenues” on the Statement of Income was inadvertently removed. Although this line item was deleted, the remainder of the Statement of Income was accurate, including all subtotals and totals. In addition, headings have been added to the Balance Sheet and the Statement of Income. This amendment also includes updated Exhibits 31.1, 31.2, 32.1 and 32.2 and a currently dated consent of the Company’s independent auditors as required by Rule 12b-15 promulgated under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. In all other respects, the Partnership’s Form 10-K filed on March 6, 2008 remains unchanged. This Amendment No. 1 continues to speak as of the date of the original filing of the Form 10-K and the Partnership has not updated the disclosures contained therein to reflect any events that occurred at a later date.

Auditors’ Report Thereon)

INDEPENDENT AUDITORS’ REPORT
To the Partners of
Waskom Gas Processing Company:
We have audited the accompanying balance sheets of Waskom Gas Processing Company (the “Partnership”) as of December 31, 2007 and 2006 and the related statements of income, partners’ capital, and cash flows for the years then ended. These financial statements are the responsibility of the Partnership’s management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audit.
We conducted our audit in accordance with auditing standards generally accepted in the United States of America. Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement. An audit also includes consideration of internal control over financial reporting as a basis for designing audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the Partnership’s internal control over financial reporting. Accordingly, we express no such opinion. An audit also includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements, assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. We believe that our audit provides a reasonable basis for our opinion.
In our opinion, the financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of the Partnership as of December 31, 2007 and 2006, and the results of its operations and its cash flows for the years then ended, in conformity with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles.

Waskom Gas Processing Company
NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
AS OF AND FOR THE YEARS ENDED DECEMBER 31, 2007 AND 2006
1.   NATURE OF BUSINESS
 
    Waskom Gas Processing Company (the “Partnership”), a Texas General Partnership, was formed on November 1, 1995 to construct and operate the Waskom Processing Plant (“the Plant”). As of December 31, 2007 the partners are CenterPoint Energy Gas Processing Company (50%) and Prism Gas Systems I, L.P. (50%). Prism Gas Systems I, L.P. serves as operator. The Partnership is engaged in the processing and marketing of natural gas and natural gas liquids (“NGL’s”), predominantly in Texas and northwest Louisiana.
 
    The Plant is a 250 MMcfd cryogenic turboexpander gas plant located in Harrison County, Texas. The Plant has full NGL fractionation, treating and stabilization capabilities. Fractionation is a process used to separate the mixture of NGL’s into individual products for sale. Expansions to the processing plant were completed in March and June of 2007 increasing the capacity from 150 MMcfd to 250 MMcfd. In January 2007 the Waskom fractionator was expanded to a capacity of 12,500 barrels per day from 9,500 barrels per day. In addition, an increase in the processing capacity of the plant to 265 MMcfd is expected to be completed by the end of the second quarter 2008.
 
    The natural gas supply for the Plant is derived primarily from natural gas wells located in the Cotton Valley formation of East Texas and Northwest Louisiana.
 
    The primary suppliers of natural gas to the Plant include BP American Production Company, Centerpoint Energy Gas Transmission Company and Devon Energy Corporation, which collectively represent approximately 72% of the 229 MMcfd of natural gas supplied for the year ended December 31, 2007 and 61% of the 183 MMcfd of natural gas supplied for the year ended December 31, 2006.
 
    The Partnership’s processing contracts are predominately percent-of-liquids (POL) contracts, in which the Partnership retains a portion of the NGL’s recovered as a processing fee. The Partnership also operates under percent-of-proceeds (POP) contracts in which it retains a portion of both the residue gas and the NGLs as payment for services. There is currently one contract for processing on a keep-whole basis. The Partnership is not contractually required to process these keep-whole volumes and, therefore, only processes natural gas related to these contracts under profitable conditions.
 
    Sales of third party gas and fractionated NGLs are predominately to the partners and occur at the tailgate of the Plant.
 
2.   SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES
 
    Accounts Receivable—Accounts receivable include trade receivables, recorded at invoiced amounts.
 
    Property and Equipment—Property and equipment are stated at cost and depreciated using the straight-line method over the estimated useful lives of the classes of assets, as follows:

Depreciation expense was $1,915,089 in 2007 and $1,483,332 in 2006.
Repairs and maintenance are charged to operations as incurred. Renewals and betterments are capitalized.
Inventories—Substantially all inventory at December 31, 2007 and 2006 represents pipe used for future projects. Such pipe was valued at acquisition cost.
Asset Retirement Obligations—Under SFAS No. 143, “Accounting for Asset Retirement Obligations” (“Statement No. 143) which provides accounting requirements for costs associated with legal obligations to retire tangible, long-lived assets, the Partnership records as an offset to the Asset Retirement Obligation (“ARO”), an asset at fair value in the period in which it is incurred by increasing the carrying amount of the related long-lived asset. In each subsequent period, the liability is accreted over time towards the ultimate obligation amount and the capitalized costs are depreciated over the useful life of the related asset. The Partnership asset retirement obligations include purging, plugging and remediation costs. Accretion expense for 2007 and 2006 was $10,751 and $10,167, respectively.
Financial Accounting Standards Board issued Interpretation No. 47, “Accounting for Conditional Asset Retirement Obligations” (“FIN 47”), an interpretation of SFAS 143 clarifies that the recognition and measurement provisions of SFAS 143 apply to asset retirement obligations in which the timing or method of settlement may be conditional on a future event that may or may not be within the control of the entity.
No conditional asset retirement obligations associated with the Partnership’s long-lived assets have been identified.
Impairment of Long-Lived Assets—In accordance with SFAS No. 144, long-lived assets, such as property, plant and equipment, are reviewed for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of an asset may not be recoverable. Recoverability of assets to be held and used is measured by a comparison of the carrying amount of an asset to estimated undiscounted future cash flows expected to be generated by the asset. If the carrying amount of an asset exceeds its estimated future cash flows, an impairment charge is recognized by the asset. If the carrying amount of an asset exceeds its estimated future cash flows, an impairment charge is recognized by the amount by which the carrying amount of the asset exceeds the fair value of the asset.
Revenue Recognition—Revenues are recognized when title passes or service is performed. The Partnership’s business consists largely of the ownership and operation of physical assets. End sales from these businesses result in physical deliveries of commodities.
Federal Income Taxes—The Partnership is a Texas General Partnership and as such has no liability for Federal Income Taxes. Each partner is responsible for its share of federal income tax.

NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
AS OF AND FOR THE YEARS ENDED DECEMBER 31, 2007 AND 2006
On May 18, 2006, the Texas Governor signed into law a Texas margin tax (H.B. No. 3) which restructures the state business tax by replacing the taxable capital and earned surplus components of the current franchise tax with a new “taxable margin” component. Since the tax base on the Texas margin tax is derived from an income-based measure, the margin tax is construed as an income tax and, therefore, the provisions of SFAS 109 regarding the recognition of deferred taxes apply to the new margin tax. In accordance with SFAS 109, the effect on deferred tax assets of a change in tax law should be included in tax expense attributable to continuing operations in the period that includes the enactment date. Therefore, the Partnership has calculated its deferred tax assets and liabilities for Texas based on the new margin tax. The cumulative effect of the change was immaterial. The impact of the change in deferred tax assets does not have a material impact on tax expense. Texas margin tax expense for 2007 was $241,864. There was no income tax expense recorded for the year ended December 31, 2006.
Environmental Liabilities—The Partnership’s policy is to accrue for losses associated with environmental remediation obligations when such losses are probable and reasonably estimable. Accruals for estimated losses for environmental remediation obligations generally are recognized no later than completion of the remedial feasibility study. Such accruals are adjusted as further information develops or circumstances change. Costs of future expenditures for environmental remediation obligations are not discounted to their present value.
Use of Estimates—The preparation of financial statements requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosures of contingent assets and liabilities, revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.
Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements— In September 2006, the FASB issued SFAS No. 157 (“SFAS 157”), “Fair Value Measurements,” which defines fair value, establishes guidelines for measuring fair value and expands disclosures regarding fair value measurements. SFAS 157 does not require any new fair value measurements but rather eliminates inconsistencies in guidance found in various prior accounting pronouncements. SFAS 157 is effective for fiscal years beginning after November 15, 2007. However, on December 14, 2007, the FASB issued proposed FSP FAS 157-b which would delay the effective date of SFAS 157 for all nonfinancial assets and nonfinancial liabilities, except those that are recognized or disclosed at fair value in the financial statements on a recurring basis (at least annually). This proposed FSP partially defers the effective date of Statement 157 to fiscal years beginning after November 15, 2008, and interim periods within those fiscal years for items within the scope of this FSP. Effective for fiscal 2008, we will adopt SFAS 157 except as it applies to those nonfinancial assets and nonfinancial liabilities as noted in proposed FSP FAS 157-b. The partial adoption of SFAS 157 will not have a material impact on our consolidated financial position, results of operations or cash flows.
In June 2006, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) issued FASB Interpretation No. 48 (FIN 48) “Accounting for Uncertainty in Income Taxes”. FIN 48 is an interpretation of FASB Statement No.109 “Accounting for Income Taxes”. FIN 48 prescribes a comprehensive model for recognizing, measuring, presenting and disclosing in the financial statements uncertain tax positions taken or expected to be taken. The Partnership adopted FIN 48 effective January 1, 2007. There was no impact to the Partnership’s financial statements as a result of adopting FIN 48.

3.   RELATED-PARTY TRANSACTIONS
 
    During 2007 and 2006, the Partnership engaged in certain material transactions with the partners. The Partnership believes that the terms of these transactions were comparable to those that could have been negotiated with unrelated third parties. As of December 31, 2007 and 2006, the Partnership had receivables of approximately $9.8 million and $11.2 million, respectively, and payables of approximately $2.5 million and $1.7 million, respectively, due from and due to the partners.
 
    Per the Partnership agreement, cash contributions are made by the partners for capital expenditures and working capital. Contributions for capital expenditures totaled $17,733,619 and $19,980,733 for 2007 and 2006, respectively. Cash contributions for working capital totaled $2,494,939 in 2006. The partnership agreement allows for cash distributions to be made to the partners of any cash available in excess of working capital requirements, generally equal to two months of historical operating expenses.
 
    Such cash distributions totaled $4,128,057 in 2007. Other cash distributions totaled $5,250,000 and $300,000 for 2007 and 2006, respectively.
 
    The Partnership purchases gas from third party producers and processes this gas based on processing contracts, which are primarily percent-of-liquids (POL) contracts. The percentage of liquids retained by the Partnership is distributed to the partners as distributions of products-in-kind based on the partners’ equity interest. Distributions of products in-kind of $18,674,997 and $16,621,349 in 2007 and 2006, respectively, were made to the partners. Distributions of products in-kind are valued at prevailing market prices at the time of distribution.
 
    In some instances, the fractionated NGL’s (less any retained portions) are returned to the third party producers, but in most cases, the third party producers enter into agreements with the partners to market their product. In such instances, the Partnership will sell the product to the partners. Such sales amounted to $53,365,845 and $43,678,571 in 2007 and 2006, respectively, and are included as natural gas liquid sales in the income statement.
 
4.   COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES
 
    The Partnership is subject to extensive federal, state and local environmental laws and regulations. These laws, which are constantly changing, regulate the discharge of materials into the environment and may require the Partnership to remove or mitigate the environmental effects of the disposal or release of petroleum or chemical substances at various sites. Environmental expenditures are expensed or capitalized depending on their future economic benefit. Expenditures that relate to an existing condition caused by past operations and that have no future economic benefits are expensed. Liabilities for expenditures of a noncapital nature are recorded when environmental assessment and/or remediation is probable, and the costs can be reasonably estimated. Management believes that any future costs should not have a material adverse effect on the Partnership’s liquidity or financial position.
