Kansas Gas Service is the largest natural gas distribution utility in Kansas, providing clean, reliable natural gas to more than 640,000 customers in 360 communities.
Kansas Gas Service was formed in 1997 when ONEOK, Inc. purchased natural gas assets from Western Resources. It has been known by a variety of names – Gas Service Company, Kansas Gas and Electric Company, KPL and KPL Gas Service – with a 100-year tradition of utility service to customers in Kansas, western Missouri and northeastern Oklahoma.
Kansas Gas Service is a division of ONE Gas, Inc. (NYSE: OGS), a natural gas distribution company and the successor to the company founded in 1906 as Oklahoma Natural Gas Company, which became ONEOK, Inc. (NYSE: OKE) in 1980.
ONEOK separated its natural gas distribution business in January 2014 to create ONE Gas, one of the largest publicly traded, 100 percent-regulated natural gas utilities in the United States.
Kansas Gas Service is committed to being 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 natural gas transmission pipelines in high-consequence areas, Kansas Gas Service created an integrity management program that meets or exceeds the requirements of the integrity management regulations.
