Questar Corporation was a natural gas public utility based in Salt Lake City, Utah. In September 2016, the company was acquired by Dominion Resources.
Questar Corporation was organized in Utah in 1984 as the holding company for Mountain Fuel Supply Company.
In 1922, the Ohio Oil Company discovered natural gas near Rock Springs, Wyoming. Ohio Oil merged with two other companies to form the Western Public Service Corporation in October 1928. Mountain Fuel Supply Company became the company's hydrocarbon exploration and production affiliate.
During the Great Depression, its stock price fell from $46/share in September 1929 to $3/share in 1932 as most families could not afford natural gas.
In 1935, the shareholders voted to reorganize the company, merging it with its subsidiaries and moving its headquarters from Pittsburgh to Salt Lake City. Mountain Fuel Supply Company became the name of the reorganized consolidated company.
In the mid-1930s, the company discovered natural gas in the Clay Basin region northeast of Utah.
During World War II, the company was required by the War Production Board to halt new natural gas utility signups so that resources can be conserved for the war effort.
In 1946, the company discovered the Church Buttes field in southwestern Wyoming.
