El Paso Corp. announced that Patricia A. Shelton will leave her position as president of the company's western pipeline group at the end of the year and be replaced by James J. Cleary, who has been president of ANR Pipeline since the Coastal merger. The company did not say why Shelton is leaving. She joined the company in 1979 and has been president of the western pipeline division since January 2001. Before that, she served as president of El Paso Natural Gas Co. "Her leadership was pivotal in the integration of El Paso Natural Gas Company and Colorado Interstate Gas Company into the Western Pipeline Group following the Coastal merger," said John W. Somerhalder, president of El Paso's Pipeline Group. Prior to assuming his role as president of ANR, Cleary was executive vice president of Southern Natural Gas Co. Stephen C. Beasley, who has been president of Tennessee Gas Pipeline since February 2000 will lead both Tennessee and ANR as president of El Paso's Eastern Pipeline Group. Beasley has served as vice president of marketing and business development for Tennessee.
