Kentucky Frontier Gas LLC was formed by 3 veterans of gas utility and pipeline work. Bob Oxford, Steve Shute, and Larry Rich have 120+ years of experience in gas operations from the wellhead to pipelines to the tip of the burner. They have built and operated utilities and pipelines in more than half the states in the US
Bob Oxford is a petroleum engineer with 50+ years of work in natural gas exploration and production, pipelines and other projects through his company Industrial Gas Services, Inc.
Steve Shute is a registered Professional Engineer with 40+ years utility experience, including positions in engineering, corrosion control and DOT compliance, and management duties with a large regional gas company and its Rocky Mountain Natural Gas unit in western Colorado. He runs Pipeline Solutions, Inc., a consulting firm for small gas utilities such as Frontier, with projects in a dozen states coast-to-coast. He is co-owner of Pinedale Natural Gas and owns or operates several other small gas utilities.
Larry Rich was a regional manager for a large southeast utility and has, for over 40 years, worked on various gas pipeline and distribution projects over the US. Larry is now retired from Frontier.
The remaining partners are active managers who handle the billing and accounting, rates, finance, engineering, regulatory compliance and safety operations of the business. The partners spend significant time in Eastern Kentucky
In 2010 Frontier moved headquarters to the office & shop of Auxier Road Gas just north of Prestonsburg. We have eight Service Technicians operating out of this complex along with the office and billing staff. All personnel are local to the area including our accountant, Kim Branham Crisp, who is third generation with Auxier Road.
