El Paso Says No "Round-Trip" Trades

LCG, May 20, 2002-Energy trader El Paso denied using the "round-trip" Enron memo trading strategy.

When memos were released relating Enron to electricity trading strategies designed to manipulate the California market, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission ordered over a hundred energy companies to state whether they participated in any of twelve strategies.

Today El Paso Corporation, a natural gas pipeline and energy trading company, said that it did not participate in the "round-trip" trades, which involve selling electricity and then buying it back at the same price with the intent of increasing trading volumes.

Meanwhile corporations such as CMS Energy are facing multiple shareholder lawsuits after admitting to such trading practices. Reliant Resources also admitted to using "round-trip" trading, and Dynegy Inc. is under investigation by the Securities and Exchange Commission.
