El Paso Corp. Fined by Government

Amarillo, TX - The company which owns the pipeline that exploded in Bushland in November has agreed to pay $2.3 million in connection with a similar explosion that occurred in Wyoming in 2006.

The Transportation Department fined El Paso Natural Gas and one of its subsidies for the blast that killed one person.

The Torres family who lost their home in Bushland has filed a lawsuit against El Paso Natural Gas, its parent company El Paso Corporation and the pipeline operator Atmos Energy Corporation.
