Note 5 - Comprehensive Income
</TABLE>


Comprehensive income is defined as any nonowner change in
common equity.  Generally, comprehensive income includes
earnings reported on the income statement plus changes in
common equity formerly reported on the balance sheet only.
Other comprehensive income included in this note is
comprised of changes in the market value of the investments
in securities available for sale and foreign currency
translation adjustments. These transactions are not the
culmination of the earnings process, but result from
periodically adjusting historical balances to market value.

</TABLE>


Revenues

Revenues reported for the 2000 periods presented were
substantially higher than the revenues for the comparable
1999 periods as a result of higher prices for gas and oil
and increased gas production.  The average natural gas
price per thousand cubic feet (Mcf) rose 28% in the second
quarter and 23% in the first half of 2000 when compared
with the same periods of 1999. The increase in gas prices
reflected a strong demand caused largely by the use of
natural gas in the generation of electricity.  Oil and
natural gas liquids (NGL) prices increased 45% in the
second quarter and 71% per barrel in the first half of 2000
(excluding Wexpro's oil production).  Oil and NGL prices 
have increased steadily over the past year as
production generally declined and demand rose.

Of the current 6 Bcf per month gas production,
approximately 42% is covered by hedge contracts at an
average price of $2.20 per Mcf, net back to the wellhead.
About one-third of the contracts are collars and the
remainder are fixed price contracts.  The floor price of
collar arrangements is used in calculating the average
hedged price. Approximately 76% of oil, excluding Wexpro
production,  is hedged at an average price of $17.14 per
barrel, net back to the wellhead through the end of 2001.

The second quarter of 2000 includes record production
levels with an average monthly production of 7 billion
cubic feet equivalent, excluding Wexpro.  Production
benefited from a successful development drilling program
and the first quarter acquisition of Canadian producing
properties.  Canadian gas production grew 165% to 1.9
billion cubic feet (Bcf).  U.S. gas production was 8% above
year-ago levels at 15.8 Bcf as increased drilling activity
offset a property sale in the fourth quarter of 1999.
However, the increased drilling did not fully replace the
production of oil and NGL production as a result of selling
nonstrategic properties in the fourth-quarter of 1999.

Expenses

Operating and maintenance expenses were higher in the
three-, six- and twelve-month periods of 2000 when compared
with the corresponding 1999 periods primarily because of
increased investment in producing properties including the
acquisition of a Canadian gas and oil company in January
2000.  In addition, higher gas prices increased the cost of
replacing gas in extraction plant operations.

The full-cost amortization rate for U.S. operations dropped
$.03 to $.79 per thousand cubic feet equivalent of
production (Mcfe) compared with the second quarter of 1999.
The U.S. rate is expected to be about $.77 in the third
quarter of 2000.  The declining U.S. rate has driven the
combined U.S. and Canadian full-cost amortization rate to
$.80 per energy-equivalent Mcf (Mcfe) for the first half of
2000 compared with $.82 for the comparable 1999 period.
The lower rate was due to successfully adding reserves
through drilling and purchases, while selling nonstrategic
properties at favorable prices.  Depreciation and
amortization expenses were higher in the 2000 periods
presented when compared with the 1999 periods.  Increased
production volumes from full-cost properties more than
offset the lower amortization rates.  Increased investment
in other properties also resulted in higher depreciation
expense in the 2000 periods.

Higher commodity prices and increased production volumes
resulted in an increase in production-related taxes
reported in other taxes on the income statement. Debt
expense was higher in the 2000 periods presented because of
increased borrowings and higher short-term interest rates.

The effective income tax rate for the first half  was 34%
in 2000 and 26.1% in 1999.  The effective income tax rate
increased largely because of a reduction in
production-related tax credits and a higher portion of
earnings coming from Canada, where income tax rates are
higher.  The Company recognized $2,259,000 of
production-related tax credits in the 2000 period and
$2,608,000 in the 1999 period.

Net income

QMR's second quarter net income increased $6.8 million
representing a 65% improvement over the second quarter of
1999.  First half 2000 net income was 72% higher compared
with the first half of 1999.  Higher commodity prices and
gas production and a lower full-cost amortization rate were
primary reasons for the increase.  Other factors include
higher earnings from Wexpro and gas-management operations.

Wexpro's net income increased $1.9 million to $11.7 million
in the first half of 2000.  Wexpro expanded its investment
in development-drilling projects in response to higher
regional demand.  Wexpro develops gas reserves on behalf of
affiliated company, Questar Gas, which is a rate-regulated
distributor of natural gas.  At year-end 1999, Wexpro
earned an average 18.9% after-tax return on investment in
those properties. In addition, increased oil and NGL prices
resulted in higher earnings for Wexpro and an increase in
shared oil profits for Questar Gas.

Gas-management and energy-trading operations reported $2.5
million in combined earnings for the first half of 2000
versus $1.5 million a year ago. Volumes of gas gathered
increased 11% in the first half of 2000 reflecting more
production in the areas served.  Higher prices benefited
the operations of liquids-extraction plants that
experienced improved results for the second quarter and
first half of 2000.  The plants extract and sell liquids
from the natural gas stream.  Increased commodity prices
caused revenues from energy-marketing activities to be
higher in the 2000 periods but were offset by the low value
of transportation contracts and settlement of gas
imbalances.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

Operating Activities

Net cash provided from operating activities in the first
half of 2000 of $38.2 million was $26.5 million less than
was generated in the first half of 1999.  Cash deposits as
a result of hedging account margin calls and timing
differences in collection of accounts receivables more than
offset the effects of higher net income.  The
interest-bearing hedging account deposit payments amounted
to $36.4 million at June 30, 2000 and were classified as
receivables on the balance sheet.

Investing Activities

Capital expenditures were $101.5 million in 2000, which
includes a $60.7 million cash payment, net of cash
received, for the purchase of a Canadian company. Capital
expenditures for calendar year 2000 are estimated at $175.7
million.

Financing Activities

QMR financed capital expenditures, including the
acquisition of a Canadian company, through borrowings from
Questar and from an existing long-term debt arrangement,
from net cash provided from operating activities and from
cash released from an escrow account.  Debt balances owed
to Questar as of June 30, 2000, amounted to $30.3 million 
and $24.5 million at December 31, 1999.  QMR filed a 
registration statement with the Securities and Exchange 
Commission in order to raise $150 million in a public debt 
offering.  Proceeds of the debt offering will be used to repay 
a portion of debt outstanding.  QMR intends to finance
remaining 2000 capital expenditures through net cash
provided from operations, borrowings from Questar and
borrowings under an existing long-term debt facility.

Revenue Recognition Guideline Issued by the Securities and
Exchange Commission

In December 1999, the SEC issued Staff Accounting Bulletin
(SAB) 101, "Revenue Recognition in Financial Statements."
The SAB raised issues concerning the timing of recording
revenues given that sales transactions may contain some
conditions allowing customers to return products or receive
refunds.  The effect of adopting this accounting guideline
is not known at this time because the Company has not
completed its evaluation.  The SEC has postponed the
effective date of this ruling from the second quarter of
2000 to the fourth quarter.

Forward-Looking Statements

The 10-Q contains forward-looking statements about future
operations, capital spending, regulatory matters and
expectations of Questar Market Resources.  According to
management, these statements are made in good faith and are
reasonable representations of the Company's expected
performance at the time. Actual results may vary from
management's stated expectations and projections due to a
variety of factors.

Important assumptions and other significant factors that
could cause actual results to differ materially from those
discussed in forward-looking statements include changes in
general economic conditions, gas and oil prices and
supplies, competition, regulation of the Wexpro settlement
agreement, availability of gas and oil properties for sale
or for exploration and other factors beyond the control of
the Company.  These other factors include the rate of
inflation and adverse changes in the business or financial
condition of the Company.

factors that could cause actual results to differ
significantly from those expressed in any forward-looking
statements.  Other unknown or unpredictable factors could
also have a significant adverse effect on future results.
The Company does not undertake an obligation to update
forward-looking information contained herein or elsewhere
to reflect actual results, changes in assumptions or
changes in other factors affecting such forward-looking
information.


 
                          Part II
                      Other Information


Item 1.   Legal Proceedings

     a.   Questar Exploration and Production Company ("Questar
E&P"), a wholly owned subsidiary of Questar Market Resources, Inc.
("Market Resources" or the "Company") is the primary Questar
defendant in a class action lawsuit--Bridenstine v. Kaiser Francis
Oil Company--pending in an Oklahoma state court.  See the Company's
Form 10, Item 8. Legal Proceedings.  Both the Company and its
parent, Questar Corporation ("Questar") are also named defendants. 
Plaintiffs have recently claimed additional damages because the
defendants allegedly did not market gas volumes for the "best
available price."  The damages claimed by the plaintiffs increased 
from an estimated $54 million to an estimated $80 million plus 
punitive damages.  The trail judge delayed the jury trial from 
August of 2000 to January of 2001, but has not yet ruled on motions 
filed by the defendants for partial summary judgment.  

     Questar E&P disputes the claims filed by the plaintiffs.       
                                                  
     b.   Questar Energy Trading Company and Questar Gas Management
Company, two of the Company's wholly owned subsidiaries, have been
added as defendants in a lawsuit filed by Jack Grynberg, an
independent producer, pending in a Utah state district court
(Grynberg v. Questar Pipeline Company).  The lawsuit was originally
filed against Questar Pipeline Company, an affiliate of the Company
in Questar's Regulated Services unit, in September of 1999.  It
alleges that the Questar defendants mismeasured gas volumes
attributable to his working interest from a property in
southwestern Wyoming.  The plaintiff cites mismeasurement to support
claims for breach of contract, negligent misrepresentation, fraud,
breach of fiduciary responsibilities, but does not allege any
specific damages.  

     The Questar defendants have filed a comprehensive motion to
dismiss the complaint on several grounds including expiration of the
applicable statute of limitations, no basis for independent tort
claims, and federal preemption.  

     The Company's subsidiaries and affiliates have been involved in
several cases filed by Mr. Grynberg alleging gas mismeasurement and
resulting underpayment to interest owners.   See the Company's Form
10, Item 8.  Legal Proceedings, for a description of another case
filed by Mr. Grynberg.

1/  For purposes of this presentation, earnings represent
income from continuing operations before income taxes and
fixed charges. Fixed charges consist of total interest
charges, amortization of debt issuance costs, and the interest
portion of rental costs (which is estimated at 50%).

2/  Income from continuing operations before income taxes
includes QMR's 50% share of pretax earnings of Blacks Fork.

3/  Distributions from Canyon Creek are included and earnings
are excluded because QMR owns less than 50%. QMR's ownership

interest in Canyon Creek is 15%.

4/  Write-down of investment in full-cost oil and gas
properties reduced income from continuing operations before
income taxes by $31 million in the fourth quarter of 1998.
