Kansas Gas Service is the largest natural gas distribution company in Kansas, operating in 82 counties. It is a regulated public utility which serves 632,000 customers in 342 communities, employing 1,035 employees.[1] In addition to owning seven interstate pipeline connections and three intrastate pipeline connections, Kansas Gas Service operates 19,073 miles of pipeline. Headquartered in Overland Park, Kansas, the company was a division of ONEOK Inc., a Tulsa-based Fortune 200 company since 1997 until ONEOK spun off KGS and its two other distribution companies to form ONE Gas in 2014.[2]

History[edit]

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. [3]
