INCORPORATION OF CERTAIN DOCUMENTS BY REFERENCE
The SEC’s rules allow GAS to “incorporate by reference” information it files with the SEC into this prospectus supplement and the accompanying prospectus. This means that GAS and GAS Capital can disclose important information to you by referring you to another document. Any information referred to in this way is considered part of this prospectus supplement and the accompanying prospectus from the date GAS files that document. Any reports filed by GAS with the SEC after the date of this prospectus supplement will automatically update and, where applicable, supersede any information contained in this prospectus supplement, the accompanying prospectus or incorporated by reference into this prospectus supplement and the accompanying prospectus.
GAS incorporates by reference into this prospectus supplement and the accompanying prospectus the following documents or information filed by it with the SEC (other than, in each case, documents or information deemed to have been furnished and not filed in accordance with SEC rules) (SEC File No. 001–14174):
Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2015;
Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q for the periods ended March 31, 2016 and June 30, 2016; and
Current Reports on Form 8-K filed on February 16, 2016, February 18, 2016, April 6, 2016, April 14, 2016, May 5, 2016 (two reports), May 18, 2016, July 1, 2016, July 11, 2016 and September 1, 2016 (except, in each case, for items in the preceding reports deemed “furnished” instead of “filed” under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (which we refer to as the Exchange Act), and exhibits furnished pursuant to those items).
GAS also incorporates by reference all documents that it may file with the SEC pursuant to Section 13(a), 13(c), 14 or 15(d) of the Exchange Act, after the date of this prospectus supplement and prior to the completion or termination of the offering.

Documents incorporated by reference are available from GAS without charge, excluding any exhibits to those documents, unless the exhibit also is specifically incorporated by reference in this prospectus supplement or the accompanying prospectus.
