Take notice that on March 30, 2009, Southern Natural Gas Company (SNG) submitted a request for approval of its accounting treatment for changes in deferred tax balances. These adjustments result from the formation of a master limited partnership, El Paso Pipeline Partners, L.P., and its acquisition of an approximately two percent partnership interest in SNG during the formation process, along with a corresponding Internal Revenue Code Section 754 election. SNG states these adjustments reduce its deferred tax balances and increase its equity by approximately $5.5 million.
