Southern Star continues response to natural gas leak at storage facility
(Grant County, Oklahoma) – Southern Star continues its response to a natural gas leak at its Webb Storage Field located in Grant County near the Kay County line.
While there is no immediate danger, safety is our top priority. The leak itself is contained to Southern Star’s facilities. Our team will continuously monitor gas levels in nearby areas as a precaution.
Team members activated our response plan after detecting the leak early last week. Our crews are well-trained to handle this event and are working around the clock until it is resolved.
Additionally, our team continues to provide uninterrupted natural gas transportation service to our customers.
Company representatives have informed nearby residents located in remote areas of Kay and Grant County of the leak. While our crews perform work in the area, nearby residents have been asked to temporarily relocate and have been offered accommodations and resources due to this inconvenience.
Southern Star thanks all local officials for their assistance, including Grant County Emergency Management, Kay County Emergency Management, Grant County Sheriff’s Office, and other agencies. We appreciate the patience of nearby residents at this time.
Our team is committed to providing information to the public until the leak is resolved.
