Proposed Oneok Split Could Mean 3-Yr Gas Rate Freeze


WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A plan by Oklahoma gas company Oneok Icorporated to spin off its utility operations would mean a freeze until 2017 in base rates and small rebates for Kansas Gas Service customers. Those provisions are part of a settlement between Oneok, the Kansas Corporation Commission and the Citizens' Utility Ratepayer Board. The Wichita Eagle reports that the settlement means there will be no opposition to the company split when the plan goes before the KCC. The proposed plan calls for breaking Oneok into two companies. A new company, One Gas, would take over Oneok's natural gas distribution systems in Kansas, Texas and Oklahoma. The remainder of Oneok would keep the original name and operate its businesses in gathering, transport and processing natural gas. Kansas Gas Service has 630,000 customers.
