CenterPoint Energy - Mississippi River Transmission Corporation (MRT)

pipeline system and stores natural gas in storage fields which it owns and

operates pursuant to authority granted by the Federal Energy Regulatory

Commission and its predecessor, the Federal Power Commission. MRT also

provides sales service and agency services to Customers.


MRT's Main Line System consists of three high pressure pipelines

originating at Perryville, Louisiana and extending through the states of

Arkansas and Missouri to points of termination at MRT's Columbia and Meramec

Measuring Stations near St. Louis, Missouri. MRT's West Line extends from

Harrison County, Texas to Perryville, Louisiana where it interconnects with

MRT's Main Line system. MRT's pipeline system also includes the Fountain Hill

Line, which connects MRT's Unionville Storage Facilities to its Main Line

System, and the East Line, a main trunk line extending into the greater St.

Louis area from a point in Clay County in Southeastern Illinois. MRT has

interconnects for the receipt of gas from various producing fields, and for

the delivery of gas by other pipelines.

Fields located in Lincoln Parish, Louisiana, and the St. Jacob Storage Field

located in Madison County, Illinois.
