About El Paso Corporation

El Paso Corporation (NYSE: EP) provides natural gas and related energy products in a safe, efficient, and dependable manner. We are organized around three businesses — interstate natural gas pipelines; natural gas and oil exploration and production; and a midstream business. We own North America's largest interstate natural gas pipeline system and our E&P Company ranks in the top 10 domestic independent producers, operating in high-quality supply basins across the United States, Brazil, and Egypt. Our Midstream business, established in 2009, focuses on meeting the increased need for infrastructure between the wellhead and downstream pipelines infrastructure.
