The equipment failure was on El Paso Natural Gas Pipeline Co LLC's Lordsburg and Florida compressor stations. El Paso, which is a unit of Kinder Morgan Inc, said the reduction will remain in effect until further notice. The Permian is the biggest oil-producing shale basin in the United States and since much of that oil comes out of the ground with gas, it is also the nation's second-biggest shale gas producing region, behind Appalachia in Pennsylvania, West Virginia and Ohio.
