Atmos Energy
Headquartered in Dallas, Atmos Energy Corporation is one of the country’s largest natural gas–only distributors, serving about 3 million natural gas distribution customers in more than 1,400 communities in nine states—from the Blue Ridge Mountains in the east to the Rocky Mountains in the west. Atmos Energy also provides natural gas marketing and procurement services to industrial, commercial and municipal customers primarily in the Midwest and Southeast and manages company-owned natural gas pipeline and storage assets, including one of the largest intrastate natural gas pipeline systems in Texas.

Atmos Energy has grown to its current grandeur from 279,000 customers in 1983 mainly by acquiring utility assets. Its most recent acquisition was the distribution and pipeline operations of TXU Gas Company, the largest natural gas distributor in Texas. Atmos Energy is also the largest natural gas distributor in Louisiana and Mississippi and operates one of the largest intrastate natural gas pipelines in Texas. Because of the geographical breadth of its operations, Atmos Energy benefits from diversity in economic conditions, weather patterns, gas supplies and regulatory climates.

Atmos Energy is known as one of the most efficient natural gas distribution companies in the industry because of constant cost management. Employees keep productivity at industry-leading levels. In 2009, the company served 678 natural gas distribution customers per employee, as compared with an average of 622 customers per employee served by Atmos’ peer group. The natural gas distribution’s operation and maintenance expense of $116 per customer in Fiscal Year 2009 also was lower than its peer-group average of $225 per customer. The efficiency of Atmos Energy helps it better serve customers, but never at the expense of safety or service.

Atmos Energy’s nonregulated operations are ranked as one of the leading domestic mid-tier natural gas marketers. It markets natural gas supplies to more than 1,000 industrial customers and municipalities in 22 states, arranges for gas transportation and management services, manages company-owned and contracted natural gas storage and pipeline assets and builds and operates natural gas gathering systems.
