The El Paso Natural Gas (EPNG) pipeline system is owned by Kinder Morgan.[2] In addition delivering natural gas to West Texas, New Mexico, Nevada, California, and Arizona, it also exports some natural gas to Mexico.[2] Historically, EPNG's primary market was California, though the growth of competing pipelines into that market and lack of increased demand since 2001 has led to a decrease in its business there, especially in Southern California. At the same time, EPNG's shipping into Arizona has increased, largely because it was the only pipeline into the fast-growing Phoenix area until the TransWestern Phoenix Lateral came in service in 2009. Its largest customers are Southern California Gas Company, a Sempra Energy subsidiary; Southwest Gas Corporation; and Pacific Gas and Electric Company.[2] Its FERC code is 33.[3]
