Industry Brief

The Warren Buffett brand, Berkshire Hathaway Inc., has been stamped on MidAmerican Energy Holdings Inc. to become Berkshire Hathaway Energy. MidAmerican holdings include interstate pipelines Kern River Gas Transmission and Northern Natural Gas, as well as utilities PacifiCorp and NV Energy Inc., which it bought in 2013 (see Daily GPIMay 31, 2013).  MidAmerican is the largest of Buffett-owned entities to adopt the the Berkshire name, reflecting "the benefits we gain from Berkshire...ownership, particularly our ability to reinvest in our businesses and take a long-term view of our customers' needs," said CEO Greg Abel. Berkshire also owns BNSF Railway Co., which is moving crude oil across North America and testing natural gas-fueled locomotive engines, and shares in ExxonMobil Corp. and National Oilwell Varco Inc.
