El Paso owns North America's largest natural gas pipeline system and is one of the largest independent natural gas producers.

The company is organized around two core businesses - pipelines and exploration and production. El Paso owns North America's largest interstate natural gas pipeline system - approximately 42,000 miles- transporting more than a quarter of the natural gas consumed in the country each day.

The Exploation & Production operation ranks in the top 10 domestic independent producers, operating in high-quality basins across the United States and in Brazil and Egypt.

In 2009, El Paso had revenues of $4.6 billion and net loss of $539 million.

El Paso was named one of the Best Places to Work for Commuters according to the EPA.


Following the discovery of oil in the Permian Basin in the 1920s, Houston attorney, Paul Kayser, determined that El Paso, TX provided a promising market for more cost-effective natural gas. He firmed up supply from several gas wells near Jal, NM, convinced El Paso's industrial facilities to convert to natural gas, and started the El Paso Natural Gas Company in 1928.

The company built its first gas pipeline in 1929. The company would go public on the NYSE in 1936.
