  1. 1. El Paso Corporation Doug Foshee President & Chief Executive Officer Raymond James 30th Annual Institutional Investor Conference March 10, 2009
  2. 2. Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-looking Statements This presentation includes certain forward-looking statements and projections. The company has made every reasonable effort to ensure that the information and assumptions on which these statements and projections are based are current, reasonable, and complete. However, a variety of factors could cause actual results to differ materially from the projections, anticipated results or other expectations expressed in this release, including, without limitation, changes in unaudited and/or unreviewed financial information; our ability to meet our 2009 debt maturities; volatility in, and access to, the capital markets; our ability to implement and achieve our objectives in our 2009 plan, including achieving our earnings and cash flow targets; the effects of any changes in accounting rules and guidance; our ability to meet production volume targets in our Exploration and Production segment; our ability to comply with the covenants in our various financing documents; our ability to obtain necessary governmental approvals for proposed pipeline and E&P projects and our ability to successfully construct and operate such projects; the risks associated with recontracting of transportation commitments by our pipelines; regulatory uncertainties associated with pipeline rate cases; actions by the credit rating agencies; the successful close of our financing transactions; our ability to close asset sales, as well as transactions with partners on one or more of our expansion projects that are included in the plan on a timely basis; credit and performance risk of our lenders, trading counterparties, customers, vendors and suppliers ;changes in commodity prices and basis differentials for oil, natural gas, and power; our ability to obtain targeted cost savings in our businesses; inability to realize anticipated synergies and cost savings on a timely basis or at all; general economic and weather conditions in geographic regions or markets served by the company and its affiliates, or where operations of the company and its affiliates are located, including the risk of a global recession and negative impact on natural gas demand; the uncertainties associated with governmental regulation; political and currency risks associated with international operations of the company and its affiliates; competition; and other factors described in the company's (and its affiliates') Securities and Exchange Commission filings. While the company makes these statements and projections in good faith, neither the company nor its management can guarantee that anticipated future results will be achieved. Reference must be made to those filings for additional important factors that may affect actual results. The company assumes no obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements made herein or any other forward-looking statements made by the company, whether as a result of new information, future events, or otherwise. Certain of the production information in this presentation include the production attributable to El Paso’s 49 percent interest in Four Star Oil & Gas Company (“Four Star”). El Paso’s Supplemental Oil and Gas disclosures, which are included in its Annual Report on Form 10-K, reflect its proportionate share of the proved reserves of Four Star separate from its consolidated proved reserves. In addition, the proved reserves attributable to its proportionate share of Four Star represent estimates prepared by El Paso and not those of Four Star. Cautionary Note to U.S. Investors—The United States Securities and Exchange Commission permits oil and gas companies, in their filings with the SEC, to disclose only proved reserves that a company has demonstrated by actual production or conclusive formation tests to be economically and legally producible under existing economic and operating conditions. We use certain terms in this presentation that the SEC's guidelines strictly prohibit us from including in filings with the SEC. U.S. Investors are urged to consider closely the disclosures regarding proved reserves in this presentation and the disclosures contained in our Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2007, File No. 001-14365, available by writing; Investor Relations, El Paso Corporation, 1001 Louisiana St., Houston, TX 77002. You can also obtain this form from the SEC by calling 1-800-SEC-0330. Non-GAAP Financial Measures This presentation includes certain Non-GAAP financial measures as defined in the SEC’s Regulation G. More information on these Non-GAAP financial measures, including EBIT, EBITDA, and the required reconciliations under Regulation G, are set forth in this presentation or in the appendix hereto. El Paso defines Resource Potential or Resource Inventory as subsurface volumes of oil and natural gas the company believes may be present and eventually recoverable. The company utilizes a net, geologic risk mean to represent this estimated ultimate recoverable amount. 2

  30. 30. Disclosure of Non-GAAP Financial Measures The SEC’s Regulation G applies to any public disclosure or release of material information that includes a non-GAAP financial measure. In the event of such a disclosure or release, Regulation G requires (i) the presentation of the most directly comparable financial measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP and (ii) a reconciliation of the differences between the non-GAAP financial measure presented and the most directly comparable financial measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. The required presentations and reconciliations are attached. Additional detail regarding non-GAAP financial measures can be reviewed in El Paso’s full operating statistics, which will be posted at www.elpaso.com in the Investors section. El Paso uses the non-GAAP financial measure “earnings before interest expense and income taxes” or “EBIT” to assess the operating results and effectiveness of the company and its business segments. The company defines EBIT as net income (loss) adjusted for (i) items that do not impact its income (loss) from continuing operations, such as extraordinary items and discontinued operations; (ii) income taxes; and (iii) interest and debt expense. The company excludes interest and debt expense so that investors may evaluate the company’s operating results without regard to its financing methods or capital structure. EBITDA is defined as EBIT excluding depreciation, depletion and amortization. El Paso’s business operations consist of both consolidated businesses as well as investments in unconsolidated affiliates. As a result, the company believes that EBIT, which includes the results of both these consolidated and unconsolidated operations, is useful to its investors because it allows them to evaluate more effectively the performance of all of El Paso’s businesses and investments. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as EBITDA including the proportional share of EBITDA less our recorded equity earnings from our equity investments in Citrus and Four Star. The company believes that adjusted EBITDA is useful to its investors because it allows them to evaluate more effectively the performance of our businesses regardless of the type of ownership structure. Exploration and Production per-unit total cash costs or cash operating costs equal total operating expenses less DD&A, cost of products and services, transportation costs, and ceiling test charges divided by total production. It is a valuable measure of operating efficiency. For 2008, Adjusted EPS is earnings per share from continuing operations excluding the gain or loss related to the change in fair value of an indemnification from the sale of an ammonia plant in 2005, the gain related to an adjustment of the liability for indemnification of medical benefits for retirees of the Case Corporation, the gain related to the disposition of a portion of the company’s investment in its telecommunications business, changes in fair value of power contracts, changes in fair value of the production-related derivatives in Marketing, impact of mark-to-market E&P derivatives, ceiling test charges and Four Star impairment, other legacy litigation adjustments, legal restructuring benefit, and the effect of the change in the number of diluted shares. For 2007, Adjusted EPS is earnings per share from continuing operations excluding changes in fair value of production-related derivatives in Marketing, the loss related to Brazilian power impairments, the gain related to the crude oil trading liability, changes in the fair value of power contracts, the loss related to an adjustment of the liability for indemnification of medical benefits for retirees of the Case Corporation, debt repurchase costs, and the effect of the change in the number of diluted shares. Adjusted EPS is useful in analyzing the company’s on-going earnings potential. El Paso believes that the non-GAAP financial measures described above are also useful to investors because these measurements are used by many companies in the industry as a measurement of operating and financial performance and are commonly employed by financial analysts and others to evaluate the operating and financial performance of the company and its business segments and to compare the operating and financial performance of the company and its business segments with the performance of other companies within the industry. These non-GAAP financial measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measurements used by other companies and should not be used as a substitute for net income, earnings per share or other GAAP operating measurements. 30
