The Houston Natural Gas Company was a gas utility headquartered in Houston, Texas. The company was acquired by InterNorth Inc. in 1985, with HNG executives taking top positions at InterNorth. Following the transaction, InterNorth was renamed Enron Corporation, and the company headquarters was moved from InterNorth's base in Omaha to the former HNG offices in Houston. The company is notable for former CEO Kenneth Lay who became CEO of the newly formed Enron.

The company was originally built by Robert Herring, who turned it from a one dimensional pipeline company to a powerful conglomerate. The company would eventually produce oil, gas and coal; manufacture petrochemicals, and engage in marine transportation and construction.TX-Texas Utility Companies Gas Companies Pipelines and Related Under $10 Map Featured
