Item 5.           Other Events
-------           ------------

                  Oklahoma Natural Gas Company (ONG) announced that it will ask
                  the Oklahoma Supreme Court to overturn an Oklahoma Corporation
                  Commission order that unfairly denies the company the right to
                  collect $34.6 million in outstanding gas costs incurred to
                  serve customers last winter. That order was formally signed
                  and issued by the commission on November 20, 2001. ONG, a
                  division of Tulsa-based ONEOK, Inc., is requesting that the
                  regulatory body postpone enforcing the order while the company
                  makes its appeal to the Oklahoma Supreme Court. ONEOK is
                  assessing the potential impact of the commission's order on
                  the company's earnings.
