Item 5. Other Events

      In  an  analyst  meeting on April 23, 2003,  in  response  to
analyst   questions,  management  of  El  Paso   Corporation   (the
"Company")  indicated  that the Company is  considering  additional
possible  asset  sale  transactions.  These  transactions  are  not
reflected in the Company's 2003 operational and financial plan  and
are  not  reflected in the $3.4 billion non-core asset sale program
for  2003  previously  announced by the  Company.   The  additional
possible  asset  sales include the possible sale of  the  Company's
Aruba    refinery,   the   possible   sale   of    the    Company's
telecommunications  business, and the possible sale  of  additional
power  assets.   There  can  be  no assurance  that  any  of  these
additional possible asset sales will occur, or as to the timing  or
terms of any such transactions, if completed.


     Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of
1934,  the  registrant has duly caused this report to be signed  on
its behalf by the undersigned thereunto duly authorized.
