“The new business and expansion is especially important as it grows our geographic footprint throughout the Midwest, bridging the geography gap between the Rocky Mountains and the upper Midwest,” said Jason Platt, executive vice president of KAG Energy.

Platt also praised the Midwest operational team for stepping up to make the expansion happen seamlessly and for opening the door for additional growth opportunities in the future. KAG Energy decided to expand its presence in concert with its strategic partners.

“Our strategic partners challenged us to start up operations in this marketplace under a tight timeline,” Platt said. “Without hesitation, the entire KAG team worked together to execute an aggressive plan to meet the needs of our customers.”
