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

          ONEOK, Inc. announced today that it has been granted a waiver on a
          possible technical default related to various financing leases tied to
          ONEOK's Bushton gas processing plant located in south central Kansas.
          ONEOK acquired the Bushton gas processing plant and related leases
          from Kinder Morgan in April 2000. Kinder Morgan had previously
          acquired the plant and leases from Enron. The technical default
          resulted from the bankruptcy filing by Enron, which is a guarantor of
          the leases in addition to Kinder Morgan and ONEOK. The waiver
          satisfies any concern related to the technical default. ONEOK will
          continue to make all payments due under the leases.
