BACKGROUND NOTE



The beginning of KN Energy dates back to 1927 and the formation of the Kansas Pipeline and Gas Company, which looked to serve small communities in Kansas.  In 1941 the company acquired the Nebraska Natural Gas Company and changed its name to Kansas-Nebraska Natural Gas Company.  The company continued to operate out of Phillipsburg, Kansas until about 1953 when they moved the headquarters to Hastings, Nebraska.  The Kansas-Nebraska Natural Gas Company operated its headquarters out of Hastings, Nebraska, until 1982.  In 1982 the headquarters was relocated to Lakewood, Colorado, and in 1983 the company changed its name to KN Energy.



KN Energy and Kinder Morgan, Inc. merged in 1999.  General Electric Co. and Alinda Capital Partners purchased the natural gas distributor from Kinder Morgan in 2007 and the name changed to SourceGas.  In April of 2015 Black Hills Energy agreed to purchase SourceGas for an estimated $1.89 billion.
