                  Northwest Natural Gas was incorporated under the laws of Oregon in 1910. The Company has operations in Oregon, Washington and California and conduct business through NW Natural and its subsidiaries. The Company has two businesses: re...moregulated local gas distribution business, referred to as the Utility segment, which serves residential, commercial, and industrial customers in Oregon and southwest Washington; and gas storage businesses, referred to as the Gas Storage segment, which provides storage services for utilities, gas marketers, electric generators, and large industrial users from storage facilities located in Oregon and California. The utility is principally engaged in the regulated distribution of natural gas in Oregon and southwest Washington to approximately 695,000 customers with around 90%...more of customers located in Oregon and 10% located in Washington. In total, the Company provides natural gas service to over 100 cities in 18 counties with an estimated population of 3.4 million in service territory. The OPUC and WUTC have allocated the Company an exclusive service territory, which includes a portion of western Oregon, including the Portland metropolitan area, Willamette Valley, the Coastal area from Astoria to Coos Bay, and portions of Washington along the Columbia River. The Company serves residential, commercial and industrial customers with no individual customer or industry accounting for over 10% of its utility revenues. On an annual basis, residential and commercial customers typically account for around 60% of utility's total volumes delivered and 90% of the Company's utility margin. Industrial customers largely account for the remaining volumes and utility margin. Residential and commercial customers purchase both their natural gas commodity and natural gas delivery services from the utility. Industrial customers also purchase transportation services from the utility, but may buy the gas commodity either from the utility or directly from a third-party gas marketer or supplier. The Company has no direct competition from other natural gas distributors but competes with other forms of energy supply in each customer class. For residential and small to mid-size commercial customers, the Company competes primarily with electricity, fuel oil, propane and renewable energy providers. In the industrial and large commercial markets the Company competes with all forms of energy, including competition from wholesale natural gas marketers. In addition, large industrial customers could bypass the Company's local gas distribution system by installing their own direct pipeline connection to the interstate pipeline system. The Company has properties and facilities that are subject to federal, state and local laws and regulations related to environmental matters.lessless
