For more than 60 years, the Northeast Oklahoma Public Facilities Authority has successfully operated its natural gas system, today it continues its mission to bring natural gas and compressed natural gas to those who desire to utilize its benefits.

Trust Establishment

In 1958, under the innovative leadership of Northeastern State University President Dr. Harrell E. Garrison, the Trust was established under the laws of the State of Oklahoma to furnish natural gas, other services, and physical facilities needed or useful within the portion of the State of Oklahoma lying North of the Arkansas River and East of the line dividing Tulsa and Washington counties.

This area had been dependent on propane fuel, wood and electricity to heat homes, businesses, institutions. The purpose of the Trust was to furnish a source of low cost fuel so that this area and its inhabitants could grow and prosper.
