       EL PASO NATURAL GAS COMPANY DELIVERS NATURAL GAS TO MEXICO
    /ADVANCE/ EL PASO, Texas, Nov. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- El Paso Natural Gas Company, in conjunction with Western Gas Interstate Company has commenced deliveries of natural gas to be used to reduce the use of polluting high-sulpher fuel oil in a large Mexican electric power plant. Initial deliveries of some 30 million cubic feet of gas per day to the Samalayuca Plant, located approximately 30 miles south of Cd. Juarez, Mexico are expected to cut oil use in the plant by some 5,000 barrels per day.
    The plant was constructed in 1985 and is owned and operated by Comision Federal de Electricidad, the agency of the Mexican government which has responsibility for the generation and distribution of electricity within Mexico.  The plant is capable of burning as much as 70 million cubic feet of gas per day.  El Paso Natural Gas Company expects that deliveries to the Samalayuca Plant will in fact grow to the 70 million cubic feet per day level in the near future.
    El Paso Natural Gas Company is one of the largest interstate natural gas transmission companies in the United States.  It is a subsidiary of Burlington Resources (NYSE: BR), an energy and natural resources company headquartered in Seattle.
