 ATMOS ENERGY'S LOUISIANA GAS DISTRIBUTION SYSTEM
 SUSTAINS LITTLE DAMAGE FROM HURRICANE
 DALLAS, Aug. 31 /PRNewswire/ -- Atmos Energy Corporation (NYSE: ATO) said today that its natural gas distribution system serving Louisiana received little damage from Hurricane Andrew.
 The company's Trans Louisiana Gas Company serves about 69,000 customers in Louisiana, including Lafayette and the area south to Patterson, La., which received the brunt of the hurricane's force.
 "Fewer than 400 Trans Louisiana gas customers had their gas service interrupted due to Hurricane Andrew. The company's distribution system sustained only minor damage, primarily from fallen tree limbs, and our offices received no damage. Service has been restored to all customers ready to receive service as of today," said Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer Charles Vaughan.
 Vaughan said the company is extending special bill payment arrangements to customers who were affected by the hurricane.
 "The company is indeed fortunate that the hurricane has had minimal impact on our operations, in light of the property damage sustained in some areas of Trans Louisiana Gas Company's service territory. Atmos was prepared to bring in company crews from Kentucky and Texas to assist in restoring service had it been necessary. The company carries adequate insurance coverage for natural disasters," Vaughan said.
 Atmos Energy Corporation of Dallas, provides natural gas to more than one-half million customers in Texas, Louisiana and Kentucky through its operating companies -- Energas Company, Trans Louisiana Gas Company and Western Kentucky Gas Company.
