A report on a natural gas explosion that killed two people in Hutchinson, Kansas, is casting light on Oklahoma based ONEOK.

The report states that the field owned by ONEOK had been leaking since 1993, and they did nothing to fix the problem. Attorneys for survivors of the victims, who are suing ONEOK, commissioned the report.

ONEOK officials say they may respond to the report.
