About Southern Star

A history of service. A future of promise.

Southern Star Central Corp.
operates as a holding company for our regulated pipeline operations and development opportunities. Southern Star Central Gas Pipeline, Inc., our only operating subsidiary, is a leading transporter of natural gas to America’s heartland, with about 5,800 miles of natural gas transmission pipeline in the Midwest and Mid-Continent regions of the United States. Our pipeline system, facilities and employees are located in Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, Wyoming, Colorado, Nebraska and Texas, with our headquarters in Owensboro, KY.

We have provided over 100 years of continuous, quality service since our formation in 1904. Highly sought after due to our consistently strong performance, desirable location in America’s heartland, and quality of service, we have been owned by various entities and undergone several name changes over the last century, but our reputation for safe, reliable quality service has remained constant. We are a locally managed private company owned by Caisse de depot du Québec.

We’re also committed to our communities. Southern Star employees serve as mentors to students, help reconstruct towns after natural disasters, volunteer with local charitable organizations and coach children’s teams. We’re neighbors and friends, and we support our employees’ volunteerism and provide time for employees to make a difference where they work and live.

This corporate character extends to how we treat the environment and approach our work. Southern Star is a steward of environmental awareness and cooperation with landowners and the government. We are committed to responsible construction and have joined other INGAA members in proclaiming this commitment. We believe in honesty in our dealings and seek out like-minded companies with which to do business.
