Aid in Construction payments of $37.2 million received in excess of construction costs have been recognized as Deferred Revenues on the Company s Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheet and will be amortized on a straight-line basis of $1.2 million per year over the life of the related Intrastate Firm Transportation Services agreement under which service will commence in June 2011.

The Company s 2010 ongoing earnings guidance has been increased from between $265 million and $290 million of net income, or $2.70 to $2.95 per average diluted share, to between $292 million and $302 million of net income, or $2.95 to $3.05 per average diluted share. The Company projects OG&E to earn at the upper end of the earnings range of $207 million to $217 million, or $2.10 to $2.20 per average diluted share, in 2010, which remained unchanged from the Company s previously reported ongoing earnings guidance, and the Company projects Enogex to earn between $84 million to $94 million, or $0.85 to $0.95 per average diluted share, in 2010, up from the Company s previously reported ongoing earnings

guidance of $63 million to $85 million, or $0.64 to $0.86 per average diluted share. However, certain key assumptions previously disclosed have changed which are shown below.
