WILMINGTON, Del., Aug. 15 LAWFUEL – Class Action News Daily — Pamela S. Tikellis of Chimicles & Tikellis LLP has been appointed Interim Co-Lead Counsel along with Diane Nygaard of The Nygaard Law Firm of Leawood, Kansas in the consolidated class action filed against Kinder Morgan, Inc. (NYSE: KMI) (“KMI” or the “Company”), and certain of its officers. This action, In Re: Kinder Morgan, Inc. Shareholders Litigation, No. 06 C 801, is pending in
the District Court of Shawnee County, Kansas and was brought on behalf of
all persons who currently own common stock of KMI. Excluded from the Class are defendants, members of their families, and the directors and officers of KMI and its subsidiaries.

Chimicles & Tikellis LLP and The Nygaard Law Firm filed Petitions in
the District Court of Shawnee County, Kansas (Kinder Morgan’s state of
incorporation) on June 9, 2006 challenging the proposed acquisition of
Kinder Morgan by an investor group led by its largest stockholder and
chairman, Richard Kinder. Richard Kinder’s group announced a $100 per share merger proposal on May 28, 2006. The Petitions were consolidated on June 23, 2006 (the “Action”). The Action requests that the Kinder Morgan board of directors fulfill its fiduciary duties and obligations to the Company’s public shareholders in the face of the “going-private” proposal.

The Action alleges that the value of the Company’s shares is materially in excess of the $100.00 offered by the insiders, and that the proposed offer was timed to take advantage of a recent slump in the share price of KMI. Inquiries
should be sent to:
