Kansas Gas Service is the largest natural gas distribution company in Kansas, providing clean, reliable natural gas to more than 630,000 customers in 342 communities.
Kansas Gas Service was formed in 1997. It has been known under a variety of names – Gas Service Company, Kansas Gas and Electric Company, KPL and KPL Gas Service - with an 85-year tradition of utility service to customers in Kansas, western Missouri and northeastern Oklahoma. In 1997 when ONEOK, Inc., purchased natural gas assets from Western Resources, the new company named Kansas Gas Service, made a commitment to create an organization that strives for excellence. Our industry is evolving. There is greater competition and greater customer choice. These changes will yield exciting new opportunities to serve the customers who have trusted us as their reliable source of natural gas. We value that trust. It's been earned by our employees who have made it their business to satisfy customers year after year.
Safety and environmental performance are our top priorities, and we work hard to deliver natural gas service with no adverse effect on the public, our customers, employees or the environment. So when the Office of Pipeline Safety issued a final rule requiring natural gas pipeline operators to develop integrity management programs for gas transmission pipelines located in high-consequence areas, Kansas Gas Service created an integrity management program that meets or exceeds the requirements of the integrity management regulations.
