Questar Gas has filed an application with the Utah Public Service Commission seeking approval of an agreement in principle to buy Utah Gas Service Co. and Wyoming Industrial Gas Co.
Utah Gas Service, a privately held company based in Denver, serves Moab, Monticello and Vernal. Wyoming Industrial Gas, also based in Denver, serves Kemmerer and Diamondville, Wyo.
When completed, the purchase will add about 10,500 customers to Questar's service territory, or about half the number of customers Questar Gas typically adds annually.
Questar Gas President and CEO D.N. "Nick" Rose said the system expansion would have no impact on current customers.
The purchase is contingent upon approval of both the Utah and Wyoming public service commissions.
