costs and other effects of legal and administrative proceedings, settlements, investigations, claims and matters, including, but not limited to, those described in the reports we file with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”);

difficulty in making accurate assumptions and projections regarding future revenues and costs associated with our equity investment in Enable that we do not control;


Enable’s pending merger with Energy Transfer, LP (“Energy Transfer”) and the expected timing of the consummation of the merger; and

other risk factors listed in the reports we file with the SEC.

In light of these risks and uncertainties, there can be no assurance that the results and events contemplated by the forward-looking statements contained or incorporated by reference in this prospectus will in fact transpire. You are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements, which speak only as of their dates. We undertake no obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise. These risks and uncertainties are discussed in more detail under “Business,” “Risk Factors,” “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” and “Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements” in our most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K and in our Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q and other documents on file with the SEC. You may obtain copies of these documents as described under “Where You Can Find More Information.” We may also describe additional risk factors in the applicable prospectus supplement.

OGE ENERGY CORP.

We are a holding company with investments in energy and energy services providers offering physical delivery and related services for both electricity and natural gas primarily in the south central United States. We conduct these activities through two business segments: (i) electric utility and (ii) natural gas midstream operations.

Our electric utility segment generates, transmits, distributes and sells electric energy in Oklahoma and western Arkansas. These operations are conducted through our wholly owned subsidiary, Oklahoma Gas and Electric Company (“OG&E”), and OG&E’s rates are subject to regulation by the Oklahoma Corporation Commission, the Arkansas Public Service Commission and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission. OG&E was incorporated in 1902 under the laws of the Oklahoma Territory. OG&E is the largest electric utility in Oklahoma, and its franchised service territory includes Fort Smith, Arkansas and the surrounding communities. OG&E sold its retail natural gas business in 1928 and is no longer engaged in the natural gas distribution business.

Our natural gas midstream operations segment represents our investment in Enable through our wholly-owned subsidiaries and ultimately OGE Enogex Holdings LLC (“OGE Holdings”). Enable is primarily engaged in the business of gathering, processing, transporting and storing natural gas. Enable’s natural gas gathering and processing assets are strategically located in four states and serve natural gas production in the Anadarko, Arkoma and Ark-La-Tex Basins. Enable also owns crude oil gathering assets in the Anadarko and Williston Basins. Enable has intrastate natural gas transportation and storage assets that are located in Oklahoma as well as interstate assets that extend from western Oklahoma and the Texas Panhandle to Louisiana, from Louisiana to Illinois and from Louisiana to Alabama.

The general partner of Enable is equally controlled by us and CenterPoint Energy, Inc. (“CenterPoint”), who each have 50 percent management ownership. At March 31, 2021, through our wholly owned subsidiary OGE Holdings, we hold approximately 25.5 percent of the limited partner interests in Enable. We also own a 60 percent interest in any incentive distribution rights of Enable.

On February 16, 2021, Enable entered into a definitive merger agreement with Energy Transfer, pursuant to which, and subject to the conditions of the merger agreement, all outstanding common units of Enable will be acquired by Energy Transfer in an all-equity transaction. Under the terms of the merger agreement, Enable’s common unitholders, including us, will receive 0.8595 of one common unit representing limited partner interests in Energy Transfer for each common unit of Enable. The transaction is subject to the receipt of the required approvals from the holders of a majority of Enable’s common units. Contemporaneously with the execution of the merger agreement, we entered into a support agreement with Enable and Energy Transfer in which we agreed to vote our common units in favor of the merger. In April 2021, we and CenterPoint, who collectively own approximately 72.9 percent of Enable’s common units, delivered written consents approving the merger agreement, and those consents are sufficient to approve the merger. The transaction also is subject to the receipt of anti-trust approvals and other customary closing conditions. The transaction is anticipated to close in 2021. Assuming the transaction closes, we will own approximately three percent of Energy Transfer’s outstanding limited partner units in lieu of the 25.5 percent interest in Enable that we currently own. Energy Transfer owns and operates one of the largest and most diversified portfolios of energy assets in the U.S., with a strategic footprint in all of the major domestic production basins. Energy Transfer is a publicly traded limited partnership with core operations that include complementary natural gas midstream, intrastate and interstate transportation and storage assets; crude oil, NGL and refined product transportation and terminalling assets; NGL fractionation; and various acquisition and marketing assets.


We were incorporated in August 1995 in the state of Oklahoma and our principal executive offices are located at 321 North Harvey, P.O. Box 321, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma 73101-0321; telephone (405) 553-3000. Our web site address is www.ogeenergy.com. Our web site address is provided for informational purposes only. No information contained in, or that can be accessed through, our web site is to be considered part of this prospectus.

RISK FACTORS

An investment in our Securities involves risk. Prior to making a decision about investing in our Securities, you should carefully consider any risk factors contained in a prospectus supplement, as well as the risk factors set forth in our most recently filed Annual Report on Form 10-K under the heading “Risk Factors” and other filings we make from time to time with the SEC. Such factors could affect actual results and cause results to differ materially from those expressed or implied in any forward-looking statements made by us or on our behalf. Additional risks and uncertainties not currently known to us or that we currently view as immaterial may also affect our business operations.

USE OF PROCEEDS

Unless we indicate otherwise in any applicable prospectus supplement or other offering materials, we intend to add the net proceeds from the sale of the Securities to our general funds and to use those proceeds for general corporate purposes, including to fund our operating units and subsidiaries and to repay short-term debt. The specific use of the proceeds of a particular offering of Securities will be described in the applicable prospectus supplement.

DESCRIPTION OF CAPITAL STOCK

The following statements are summaries of certain provisions of our Restated Certificate of Incorporation and are subject to the detailed provisions thereof. Such summaries do not purport to be complete, and reference is made to our Restated Certificate of Incorporation (which is filed as Exhibit 3.01 to our Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2013, File No. 1-12579) for a full and complete statement of such provisions.

Authorized Shares

Under our Restated Certificate of Incorporation, we are authorized to issue 450,000,000 shares of common stock, par value $0.01 per share, of which 200,173,981 shares were outstanding on March 31, 2021.

We are also authorized to issue 5,000,000 shares of preferred stock, par value $0.01 per share. No shares of preferred stock are currently outstanding. Without shareholder approval, we may issue preferred stock in the future in such series as may be designated by our board of directors. In creating any such series, our board of directors has the authority to fix the rights and preferences of each series with respect to, among other things, the dividend rate, redemption provisions, liquidation preferences, sinking fund provisions, conversion rights and voting rights. The terms of any series of preferred stock that we may issue in the future may provide the holders of such preferred stock with rights that are senior to the rights of the holders of our common stock.

Dividend Rights

Before we can pay any dividends on our common stock, the holders of our preferred stock that may be outstanding are entitled to receive their dividends at the respective rates as may be provided for the shares of their series. Currently, there are no shares of our preferred stock outstanding. Because we are a holding company and conduct all of our operations through our subsidiaries, our cash flow and ability to pay dividends will be dependent on the earnings and cash flows of our subsidiaries and other equity interests and the distribution or other payment of those earnings to us in the form of dividends or distributions, or in the form of repayments of loans or advances to us. We expect to derive principally all of the funds required by us to enable us to pay dividends on our common stock from dividends paid by OG&E, on OG&E’s common stock, and from distributions paid by OGE Holdings, on OGE Enogex Holdings limited liability company interests, including distributions from its interest in Enable. Our ability to receive dividends on OG&E’s common stock is subject to the prior rights of the holders of any OG&E preferred stock that may be outstanding, any covenants of OG&E’s certificate of incorporation and OG&E’s debt instruments limiting the ability of OG&E to pay dividends and the ability of public utility commissions that regulate OG&E to effectively restrict the payment of dividends by OG&E. Our ability to receive distributions from our interest in Enable is subject to the prior rights of existing and future holders of limited partnership interests that may be outstanding and any covenants in the debt instruments of Enable and its subsidiaries and equity interests limiting the ability to pay distributions.


Voting Rights

Each holder of common stock is entitled to one vote per share upon all matters upon which shareowners have the right to vote and generally will vote together as one class. Our board of directors has the authority to fix conversion and voting rights for any new series of preferred stock (including the right to elect directors upon a failure to pay dividends), provided that no share of preferred stock can have more than one vote per share.

Our Restated Certificate of Incorporation also contains “fair price” provisions, which require the approval by the holders of at least 80 percent of the voting power of our outstanding voting stock as a condition for mergers, consolidations, sales of substantial assets, issuances of capital stock and certain other business combinations and transactions involving us and any substantial (10 percent or more) holder of our voting stock unless the transaction is either approved by a majority of the members of our board of directors who are unaffiliated with the substantial holder or specified minimum price and procedural requirements are met. The provisions summarized in the foregoing sentence may be amended only by the approval of the holders of at least 80 percent of the voting power of our outstanding voting stock. Our voting stock consists of all outstanding shares entitled to vote generally in the election of directors and currently consists of our common stock.

Our voting stock does not have cumulative voting rights for the election of directors. Our Restated Certificate of Incorporation and By-Laws currently contain provisions stating that: (1) directors may be removed only with the approval of the holders of at least a majority of the voting power of our shares generally entitled to vote; (2) any vacancy on the board of directors will be filled only by the remaining directors then in office, though less than a quorum; (3) advance notice of introduction by shareowners of business at annual shareowner meetings and of shareowner nominations for the election of directors must be given and that certain information must be provided with respect to such matters; (4) shareowner action may be taken only at an annual meeting of shareowners or a special meeting of shareowners called by the President or the board of directors; and (5) the foregoing provisions may be amended only by the approval of the holders of at least 80 percent of the voting power of the shares generally entitled to vote. These provisions, along with the “fair price” provisions discussed above, the business combination and control share acquisition provision discussed below, may deter attempts to cause a change in control of our company (by proxy contest, tender offer or otherwise) and will make more difficult a change in control that is opposed by our board of directors.

Liquidation Rights

Subject to possible prior rights of holders of preferred stock that may be issued in the future, in the event of our liquidation, dissolution or winding up, whether voluntary or involuntary, the holders of our common stock are entitled to receive the remaining assets and funds pro rata, according to the number of shares of common stock held.

Other Provisions

Oklahoma has enacted legislation aimed at regulating takeovers of corporations and restricting specified business combinations with interested shareholders. Under the Oklahoma General Corporation Act, a shareowner who acquires more than 15 percent of the outstanding voting shares of a corporation subject to the statute, but less than 85 percent of such shares, is prohibited from engaging in specified “business combinations” with the corporation for three years after the date that the shareowner became an interested stockholder. This provision does not apply if (1) before the acquisition date the corporation’s board of directors has approved either the business combination or the transaction in which the shareowner became an interested shareowner or (2) the corporation’s board of directors approves the business combination and at least two-thirds of the outstanding voting stock of the corporation not owned by the interested shareowner vote to authorize the business combination. The term “business combination” encompasses a wide variety of transactions with or caused by an interested shareowner in which the interested shareowner receives or could receive a benefit on other than a pro rata basis with other shareowners, including mergers, specified asset sales, specified issuances of additional shares to the interested shareowner, transactions with the corporation that increase the proportionate interest of the interested shareowner or transactions in which the interested shareowner receives certain other benefits.

Oklahoma law also contains control share acquisition provisions. These provisions generally require the approval of the holders of a majority of the corporation’s voting shares held by disinterested shareowners before a person purchasing one-fifth or more of the corporation’s voting shares can vote the shares in excess of the one-fifth interest. Similar shareholder approvals are required at one-third and majority thresholds.

The board of directors may allot and issue shares of common stock for such consideration, not less than the par value thereof, as it may from time to time determine. No holder of common stock has the preemptive right to subscribe for or


purchase any part of any new or additional issue of stock or securities convertible into stock. Our common stock is not subject to further calls or to assessment by us.

Our common stock is listed on the New York Stock Exchange. Computershare is the Transfer Agent and Registrar for our common stock.

DESCRIPTION OF DEBT SECURITIES

The description below contains summaries of selected provisions of the indenture, including the supplemental indenture, under which our debt securities will be issued. These summaries are not complete. The indenture and the form of supplemental indenture applicable to our debt securities have been filed as exhibits to the registration statement of which this prospectus is a part. You should read the indenture and the supplemental indenture for provisions that may be important to you. In the summaries below, we have included references to section numbers of the indenture so that you can easily locate these provisions.

We are not required to issue future issues of indebtedness under the indenture described in this prospectus. We are free to use other indentures or documentation, containing provisions different from those described in this prospectus, in connection with future issues of other indebtedness not under this registration statement. At March 31, 2021, we had no senior debt securities outstanding under the Indenture (as defined below).

Our debt securities will be represented either by global securities registered in the name of The Depository Trust Company (“DTC”), as depository (“Depository”), or its nominee, or by securities in certificated form issued to the registered owners, as described in the applicable prospectus supplement. See “Book-Entry System” in this prospectus.

General

We may issue our debt securities as notes or debentures or other unsecured evidences of indebtedness (collectively referred to as the “Debt Securities”) in one or more new series under an indenture dated as of November 1, 2004 between us and BOKF, NA, as successor trustee (the “Trustee”). This indenture, as previously supplemented by supplemental indentures and as to be supplemented by a new supplemental indenture for each series of Debt Securities, is referred to in this prospectus as the “Indenture.”

The Debt Securities will be unsecured obligations and will rank on a parity with our other existing and future unsecured and unsubordinated indebtedness, including other senior debt securities previously issued under the Indenture and senior debt securities that may be issued under the Indenture subsequent to the issuance of the Debt Securities.

The Debt Securities will be obligations exclusively of our company. As a holding company, we have no material assets other than our ownership of the common stock of our subsidiaries and investment in an unconsolidated affiliate. Unless we say otherwise in a prospectus supplement, we will rely entirely upon distributions and other amounts received from our subsidiaries and unconsolidated affiliate to meet the payment obligations under the Debt Securities.

Our subsidiaries and unconsolidated affiliate are separate and distinct legal entities and have no obligation, contingent or otherwise, to pay amounts due under the Debt Securities or otherwise to make any funds available to us. This includes the payment of dividends or other distributions or the extension of loans or advances, unless we say otherwise in a prospectus supplement. Public utility commissions that regulate our utility subsidiary may effectively restrict the payment of dividends to us by our utility subsidiary. See “Description of Capital Stock-Dividend Rights” for a description of certain limits on the ability of our regulated utility subsidiary, OG&E, to pay dividends on its common stock.

Furthermore, the ability of our subsidiaries and unconsolidated affiliate to make any payments to us would be dependent upon the terms of any credit facilities of such entities and upon their earnings and cash flow, which are subject to various business risks. In a bankruptcy or insolvency proceeding, claims of holders of the Debt Securities would be satisfied solely from our equity interests in our subsidiaries and unconsolidated affiliate remaining after the satisfaction of claims of creditors of the subsidiaries. Accordingly, the Debt Securities are effectively subordinated to existing and future liabilities of our subsidiaries to their respective creditors.

We sometimes refer in this prospectus to debt securities issued under the Indenture, whether previously issued or to be issued in the future, including the Debt Securities, as the “Notes.” The amount of Notes that we may issue under the Indenture is not limited.


The Debt Securities may be issued in one or more series, may be issued at various times, may have differing maturity dates and may bear interest at differing rates. The prospectus supplement applicable to each issue of Debt Securities will specify:

the title, aggregate principal amount and offering price of that series of Debt Securities;

the interest rate or rates, or method of calculation of the rate or rates, on that series, and the date from which the interest will accrue;

the dates on which interest will be payable;

the record dates for payments of interest;

the date on which the Debt Securities of that series will mature;

any redemption terms;

the period or periods within which, the price or prices at which and the terms and conditions upon which the Debt Securities of that series may be repaid, in whole or in part, at the option of the holder thereof; and

other specific terms applicable to the Debt Securities of that series.

Any special U.S. Federal income tax considerations applicable to Debt Securities sold at an original issue discount and any special U.S. Federal income tax or other considerations applicable to any Debt Securities that are denominated in a currency other than U.S. dollars will be described in the prospectus supplement relating to that series of Debt Securities.

Unless we indicate otherwise in the applicable prospectus supplement, the Debt Securities will be denominated in U.S. dollars in minimum denominations of $1,000 and integral multiples of $1,000 in excess thereof.

Unless we indicate otherwise in the applicable prospectus supplement, there will be no provisions in the Indenture or the Debt Securities that require us to redeem, or permit the holders to cause a redemption or repurchase of, the Debt Securities or that otherwise protect the holders in the event that we incur substantial additional indebtedness, whether or not in connection with a change in control of our company.

Registration, Transfer And Exchange

Debt Securities of any series may be exchanged for other Debt Securities of the same series of any authorized denominations and of a like aggregate principal amount, stated maturity and original issue date. (Section 2.06 of the Indenture.)

Unless we indicate otherwise in the applicable prospectus supplement, Debt Securities may be presented for registration of transfer (duly endorsed or accompanied by a duly executed written instrument of transfer), at the office of the Trustee maintained for that purpose and referred to in the applicable prospectus supplement, without service charge and upon payment of any taxes and other governmental charges as described in the Indenture. Any transfer or exchange will be effected upon the Trustee’s satisfaction with the documents of title and indemnity of the person making the request. (Sections 2.06 and 2.07 of the Indenture.)

The Trustee will not be required to exchange or register a transfer of any Debt Securities of a series that is selected, called or being called for redemption except, in the case of any Debt Security to be redeemed in part, the portion thereof not to be so redeemed. (Section 2.06 of the Indenture.) See “Book-Entry System” in this prospectus.

Payment and Paying Agents

Principal, interest and premium, if any, on Debt Securities issued in the form of global securities will be paid in the manner described below under the heading “Book-Entry System.” Unless we indicate otherwise in the applicable prospectus supplement, interest on Debt Securities that are in the form of certificated securities will be paid by check mailed to the holder at that holder’s address as it appears in the register for the Debt Securities maintained by the Trustee; however, a holder of $10,000,000 or more of Notes having the same interest payment dates will be entitled to receive payments of interest by wire transfer to a bank within the continental United States, if appropriate wire transfer instructions have been received by the Trustee on or prior to the applicable record date. (Section 2.12 of the Indenture.) Unless we indicate otherwise in the applicable prospectus supplement, the principal, interest at maturity and premium, if any, on Debt Securities in the form of certificated securities will be payable in immediately available funds at the office of the Trustee upon presentation of the Debt Securities. (Section 2.12 of the Indenture.)

All monies paid by us to a paying agent for the payment of principal, interest or premium on any Debt Securities that remain unclaimed at the end of two years after that principal, interest or premium has become due and payable will be repaid to


us, and the holders of those Debt Securities may thereafter look only to us for payment of that principal, interest or premium. (Section 4.04 of the Indenture.)

Events of Default

The following are events of default under the Indenture:

default in the payment of principal and premium, if any, on any Note issued under the Indenture when due and payable and continuance of that default for a period of five days;

default in the payment of interest on any Note issued under the Indenture when due and continuance of that default for 30 days;

default in the performance or breach of any of our other covenants or warranties in the Indenture and the continuation of that default or breach for 90 days after written notice to us as provided in the Indenture; and

specified events of bankruptcy, insolvency or reorganization of our company. (Section 7.01 of the Indenture.)

Acceleration of Maturity. If an event of default occurs and is continuing, either the Trustee or the holders of a majority in principal amount of the outstanding Notes may declare the principal amount of all Notes to be due and payable immediately. At any time after an acceleration of the Notes has been declared, but before a judgment or decree of the immediate payment of the principal amount of the Notes has been obtained, if we pay or deposit with the Trustee a sum sufficient to pay all matured installments of interest and the principal and any premium which has become due otherwise than by acceleration and all defaults have been cured or waived, then that payment or deposit will cause an automatic rescission and annulment of the acceleration of the Notes. (Section 7.01 of the Indenture.)

Indemnification of Trustee. The Trustee generally will be under no obligation to exercise any of its rights or powers under the Indenture at the request or direction of any of the holders unless the holders have offered reasonable security to the Trustee. (Section 8.02 of the Indenture.)

Right to Direct Proceedings. The holders of a majority in principal amount of the outstanding Notes generally will have the right to direct the time, method and place of conducting any proceeding for any remedy available to the Trustee, or of exercising any trust or power conferred on the Trustee, relating to the Notes. The holders of a majority in principal amount of the outstanding Notes generally will be able to waive any past default or event of default except a default in the payment of principal, premium or interest on the Notes. (Section 7.07 of the Indenture.) Each holder has the right to institute a proceeding relating to the Indenture, but this right is subject to conditions precedent specified in the Indenture. (Section 7.04 of the Indenture.)

Notice of Default. The Trustee is required to give the holders notice of the occurrence of a default within 90 days of the default, unless the default is cured or waived. Except in the case of a payment default on the Notes, however, the Trustee may withhold notice if it determines in good faith that it is in the interest of holders to do so. (Section 7.08 of the Indenture.) We are required to deliver to the Trustee each year a certificate as to whether or not we are in compliance with the conditions and covenants under the Indenture. (Section 5.05 of the Indenture.)

Modification

Unless we indicate otherwise in the applicable prospectus supplement, we and the Trustee may modify and amend the Indenture and the Debt Securities from time to time. Depending upon the type of amendment, we may not need the consent or approval of any of the holders of the Notes, or we may need either the consent or approval of the holders of a majority in principal amount of the outstanding Notes or the consent or approval of each holder affected by the proposed amendment.

We will not need the consent of the holders for the following types of amendments:

adding to our covenants for the benefit of the holders or surrendering a right given to us in the Indenture;

adding security for the Notes; or

making various other modifications, generally of a ministerial or immaterial nature. (Section 12.01 of the Indenture.)

We will need the consent of the holders of each outstanding Note affected by a proposed amendment if the amendment would cause any of the following to occur:

a change in the maturity date or redemption date of any Note;


a reduction in the interest rate or extension of the time of payment of interest;

a reduction in the principal amount of any Note, the interest or premium payable on any Note, or the amount of principal that could be declared due and payable prior to the stated maturity;

a change in the currency of any payment of principal, premium or interest on any Note;

an impairment of the right of a holder to institute suit for the enforcement of any payment relating to any Note;

a reduction in the percentage of outstanding Notes necessary to consent to the modification or amendment of the Indenture; or

a modification of these requirements or a reduction to less than a majority of the percentage of outstanding Notes necessary to waive any past default. (Section 12.02 of the Indenture.)

Amendments other than those described in the above two paragraphs will require the approval of a majority in principal amount of the outstanding Notes.

Defeasance and Discharge

We may be discharged from all obligations relating to the Notes and the Indenture (except for specified obligations such as obligations to register the transfer or exchange of Notes, replace stolen, lost or mutilated Notes and maintain paying agencies) if we irrevocably deposit with the Trustee, in trust for the benefit of holders of Notes, money or U.S. government obligations, or any combination thereof, sufficient to make all payments of principal, premium and interest on the Notes on the dates those payments are due. To discharge those obligations, we must deliver to the Trustee an opinion of counsel that the holders of the Notes will not recognize income, gain or loss for U.S. Federal income tax purposes as a result of the defeasance or discharge of the Indenture. If we discharge our obligations as described above, the holders of Notes must look only to the funds deposited with the Trustee, and not us, for payments on the Notes. (Section 4.01 of the Indenture.)

Consolidation, Merger and Sale of Assets; No Financial Covenants

We will not merge into any other corporation or sell or otherwise transfer all or substantially all our assets unless the successor or transferee corporation assumes by supplemental indenture our obligations to pay the principal, interest and any premium on all the Notes and our obligation to perform every covenant in the Indenture that we are supposed to perform or observe. Upon any merger, sale or transfer of all or substantially all of our assets, the successor or transferee corporation will succeed to, and be substituted for, and may exercise all of our rights and powers under the Indenture with the same effect as if the successor corporation had been named as us in the Indenture, and we will be released from all obligations under the Indenture. The Indenture defines all or substantially all of our assets as being sixty-six and two thirds percent or more of our total assets as shown on our balance sheet at the end of the prior year and specifically permits any sale, transfer or conveyance during a calendar year of less than sixty six and two thirds percent of our total assets without the consent of the holders of the Notes. (Sections 11.01 and 11.02 of the Indenture.)

Unless we indicate otherwise in the applicable prospectus supplement, the Indenture will not contain any financial or other similar restrictive covenants.

Resignation or Removal of Trustee

The Trustee may resign at any time by notifying us in writing and specifying the day that the resignation is to take effect. The resignation will not take effect, however, until a successor trustee has been appointed. (Section 8.10 of the Indenture.)

The holders of a majority in principal amount of the outstanding Notes may remove the Trustee at any time. In addition, so long as no event of default or event which, with the giving of notice or lapse of time or both, would become an event of default has occurred and is continuing, we may remove the Trustee upon (1) notice to the Trustee and the holder of each Note outstanding under the Indenture and (2) appointment of a successor Trustee. (Section 8.10 of the Indenture.)

Concerning the Trustee

BOKF, NA is the Trustee under the Indenture. We and our affiliates maintain banking relationships with the Trustee in the ordinary course of business. The Trustee also acts as trustee for some securities of our affiliates.


BOOK-ENTRY SYSTEM

Unless we indicate otherwise in the applicable prospectus supplement, The Depository Trust Company (“DTC”), New York, New York, will act as securities depository for the Debt Securities. The Debt Securities will be issued as fully-registered securities registered in the name of Cede & Co., DTC’s partnership nominee, or such other name as may be requested by an authorized representative of DTC. One fully-registered certificate will be issued for each issue of Debt Securities, each in the aggregate principal amount of any such issue, and will be deposited with DTC. If, however, the aggregate principal amount of any issue exceeds $500 million, one certificate will be issued with respect to each $500 million of principal amount, and an additional certificate will be issued with respect to any remaining principal amount of any such issue.

DTC, the world’s largest securities depository, is a limited-purpose trust company organized under the New York Banking Law, a “banking organization” within the meaning of the New York Banking Law, a member of the Federal Reserve System, a “clearing corporation” within the meaning of the New York Uniform Commercial Code and a “clearing agency” registered pursuant to the provisions of Section 17A of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. DTC holds and provides asset servicing for issues of U.S. and non-U.S. equity issues, corporate and municipal debt issues and money market instruments that DTC’s participants (“Direct Participants”) deposit with DTC. DTC also facilitates the post-trade settlement among Direct Participants of sales and other securities transactions in deposited securities, through electronic computerized book-entry transfers and pledges between Direct Participants’ accounts. This eliminates the need for physical movement of securities certificates. Direct Participants include both U.S. and non-U.S. securities brokers and dealers, banks, trust companies, clearing corporations and certain other organizations. DTC is a wholly-owned subsidiary of The Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation (“DTCC”). DTCC is the holding company for DTC, National Securities Clearing Corporation and Fixed Income Clearing Corporation, all of which are registered clearing agencies. DTCC is owned by the users of its regulated subsidiaries. Access to the DTC system is also available to others such as both U.S. and non-U.S. securities brokers and dealers, banks, trust companies and clearing corporations that clear through or maintain a custodial relationship with a Direct Participant, either directly or indirectly (“Indirect Participants”). The DTC Rules applicable to its Participants are on file with the SEC. More information about DTC can be found at www.dtcc.com.

Purchases of Debt Securities under the DTC system must be made by or through Direct Participants, which will receive a credit for the Debt Securities on DTC’s records. The ownership interest of each actual purchaser of each Debt Security (“Beneficial Owner”) is in turn to be recorded on the Direct and Indirect Participants’ records. Beneficial Owners will not receive written confirmation from DTC of their purchase. Beneficial Owners are, however, expected to receive written confirmations providing details of the transaction, as well as periodic statements of their holdings, from the Direct or Indirect Participant through which the Beneficial Owner entered into the transaction. Transfers of ownership interests in the Debt Securities are to be accomplished by entries made on the books of Direct and Indirect Participants acting on behalf of Beneficial Owners. Beneficial Owners will not receive certificates representing their ownership interests in Debt Securities, except in the event that use of the book-entry system for the Debt Securities is discontinued.

To facilitate subsequent transfers, all Debt Securities deposited by Direct Participants with DTC are registered in the name of DTC’s partnership nominee, Cede & Co., or such other name as may be requested by an authorized representative of DTC. The deposit of Debt Securities with DTC and their registration in the name of Cede & Co. or such other DTC nominee do not effect any change in beneficial ownership. DTC has no knowledge of the actual Beneficial Owners of the Debt Securities; DTC’s records reflect only the identity of the Direct Participants to whose accounts such Debt Securities are credited, which may or may not be the Beneficial Owners. The Direct and Indirect Participants will remain responsible for keeping account of their holdings on behalf of their customers.

Conveyance of notices and other communications by DTC to Direct Participants, by Direct Participants to Indirect Participants, and by Direct Participants and Indirect Participants to Beneficial Owners will be governed by arrangements among them, subject to any statutory or regulatory requirements as may be in effect from time to time. Beneficial Owners of Debt Securities may wish to take certain steps to augment the transmission to them of notices of significant events with respect to the Debt Securities, such as redemptions, tenders, defaults, and proposed amendments to the Debt Security documents. For example, Beneficial Owners of Debt Securities may wish to ascertain that the nominee holding the Debt Securities for their benefit has agreed to obtain and transmit notices to Beneficial Owners. In the alternative, Beneficial Owners may wish to provide their names and addresses to the registrar and request that copies of notices be provided directly to them.

Redemption notices shall be sent to DTC. If less than all of the Debt Securities within an issue are being redeemed, DTC’s practice is to determine by lot the amount of the interest of each Direct Participant in such issue to be redeemed.

Neither DTC nor Cede & Co. (nor any other DTC nominee) will consent or vote with respect to Debt Securities unless authorized by a Direct Participant in accordance with DTC’s procedures. Under its usual procedures, DTC mails an Omnibus


Proxy to us as soon as possible after the record date. The Omnibus Proxy assigns Cede & Co.’s consenting or voting rights to those Direct Participants to whose accounts Debt Securities are credited on the record date (identified in a listing attached to the Omnibus Proxy).

Redemption proceeds, distributions and interest payments on the Debt Securities will be made to Cede & Co., or such other nominee as may be requested by an authorized representative of DTC. DTC’s practice is to credit Direct Participants’ accounts upon DTC’s receipt of funds and corresponding detail information from us or our agent, on payable date in accordance with their respective holdings shown on DTC’s records. Payments by Participants to Beneficial Owners will be governed by standing instructions and customary practices, as is the case with securities held for the accounts of customers in bearer form or registered in “street name,” and will be the responsibility of such Participant and not of DTC, our agent or us, subject to any statutory or regulatory requirements as may be in effect from time to time. Payment of redemption proceeds, distributions and interest payments to Cede & Co. (or such other nominee as may be requested by an authorized representative of DTC) is the responsibility of us or our agent, disbursement of such payments to Direct Participants will be the responsibility of DTC, and disbursement of such payments to the Beneficial Owners will be the responsibility of Direct and Indirect Participants.

DTC may discontinue providing its services as depository with respect to the Debt Securities at any time by giving reasonable notice to us or our agent. Under such circumstances, in the event that a successor depository is not obtained, Debt Security certificates are required to be printed and delivered.

We may decide to discontinue use of the system of book-entry-only transfers through DTC (or a successor securities depository). In that event, Debt Security certificates will be printed and delivered to DTC.

The information in this section concerning DTC and DTC’s book-entry system has been obtained from sources that we believe to be reliable, but neither we nor any underwriter takes any responsibility for the accuracy thereof.

PLAN OF DISTRIBUTION

We may sell the Securities offered by this prospectus through underwriters, through dealers, through agents, directly to other purchasers or through a combination of these methods, as described in the prospectus supplement relating to an offering of Securities. The distribution of the Securities may be effected from time to time in one or more transactions at a fixed price or prices, which may be changed, at market prices prevailing at the time of sale, at prices related to such prevailing market prices or at negotiated prices.

The applicable prospectus supplement will contain specific information relating to the terms of the offering, including:

the name or names of any underwriters or agents;

the purchase price of the Securities;

our net proceeds from the sale of the Securities;

any underwriting discounts and other items constituting underwriters’ compensation; and

the initial public offering price and any discounts, concessions or commissions allowed or re-allowed or paid to dealers.

By Underwriters

If underwriters are used in the sale, the Securities will be acquired by the underwriters for their own account. Underwriters may offer the Securities directly or through underwriting syndicates represented by one or more managing underwriters. The underwriters may resell the Securities in one or more transactions, including negotiated transactions, at a fixed public offering price, which may be changed, or at varying prices determined at the time of sale. The obligations of the underwriters to purchase the Securities will be subject to certain conditions. The initial public offering price and any discounts or concessions allowed or re-allowed or paid to dealers may be changed from time to time.

By Dealers

If dealers are used in the sale, unless otherwise specified in the applicable prospectus supplement, we will sell the Securities to the dealers as principals. The dealers may then resell the Securities to the public at varying prices to be determined by the dealers at the time of resale. The applicable prospectus supplement will contain more information about the dealers, including the names of the dealers and the terms of our agreement with them.


By Agents and Direct Sales

We may sell the Securities directly to the public, without the use of underwriters, dealers or agents. We may also sell the Securities through agents we designate from time to time. The applicable prospectus supplement will contain more information about the agents, including the names of the agents and any commission we agree to pay the agents.

General Information

Underwriters, dealers and agents that participate in the distribution of Securities may be deemed to be underwriters, and any discounts or commissions received by them from us and any profit on the resale of Securities by them may be deemed to be underwriting discounts and commissions under the Securities Act of 1933. Any person who may be deemed to be an underwriter will be identified, and any compensation received from us will be described, in the prospectus supplement.

Our outstanding common stock is listed for trading on the New York Stock Exchange. We may engage in at-the-market offerings of our common stock into an existing trading market in accordance with Rule 415(a)(4) of the Securities Act of 1933. Any at-the-market offering of our common stock will be through an underwriter or underwriters acting as principal or agent for us.

Under agreements into which we may enter in connection with the sale of Securities, underwriters, dealers and agents who participate in the distribution of Securities may be entitled to indemnification by us against specified liabilities, including liabilities under the Securities Act of 1933.

Agents, dealers and underwriters may be customers of, engage in transactions with, or perform services for us or our affiliates in the ordinary course of business.

LEGAL OPINIONS

Unless otherwise indicated in the applicable prospectus supplement, legal opinions relating to the Securities and certain other matters will be rendered by our counsel, GableGotwals, Tulsa, Oklahoma, and Jones Day, Chicago, Illinois. Unless otherwise indicated in the applicable prospectus supplement, GableGotwals will pass on matters pertaining to local laws and as to these matters other counsel will rely on their opinions.

Unless otherwise indicated in the applicable prospectus supplement, certain legal matters will be passed upon for any underwriters, dealers or agents named in a prospectus supplement by Chapman and Cutler LLP, Chicago, Illinois.

This prospectus is part of a registration statement that we filed with the SEC utilizing a “shelf” registration process. Under this process, we are registering an unspecified amount of our Debt Securities, and may issue any of such Debt Securities in one or more offerings. This prospectus provides you with a general description of the Debt Securities we may offer. Each time we sell any of the Debt Securities, we will provide a prospectus supplement that will contain specific information about the terms of that offering. The prospectus supplement may also add, update or change information contained in this prospectus. You should read both this prospectus and the applicable prospectus supplement together with the additional information described under the heading “Where You Can Find More Information.” For more details, you should read the exhibits filed with the registration statement of which this prospectus is a part.

Forward-looking statements are not guarantees of performance. They involve risks, uncertainties and assumptions. Our future results may differ materially from those expressed in these forward-looking statements. These statements are necessarily based upon various assumptions involving judgments with respect to the future and other risks, including, among others:

availability and prices of raw materials for current and future construction projects;

the effect of retroactive pricing of transactions in the Southwest Power Pool markets or adjustments in market pricing mechanisms by the Southwest Power Pool;

federal or state legislation and regulatory decisions and initiatives that affect cost and investment recovery, have an impact on rate structures or affect the speed and degree to which competition enters our markets;

environmental laws, safety laws or other regulations that may impact the cost of operations or restrict or change the way our facilities are operated;

changes in accounting standards, rules or guidelines;

the discontinuance of accounting principles for certain types of rate-regulated activities;

the cost of protecting assets against, or damage due to, terrorism or cyber-attacks and other catastrophic events;

creditworthiness of suppliers, customers and other contractual parties;

identification of suitable investment opportunities to enhance shareholder returns and achieve long-term financial objectives through business acquisitions and divestitures;

the impact of extraordinary external events, such as the current pandemic health event resulting from COVID-19, and their collateral consequences, including extended disruption of economic activity in our markets;

costs and other effects of legal and administrative proceedings, settlements, investigations, claims and matters, including, but not limited to, those described in the reports we file with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”); and

In light of these risks and uncertainties, there can be no assurance that the results and events contemplated by the forward-looking statements contained in or incorporated by reference in this prospectus will in fact transpire. You are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements, which speak only as of their dates. We undertake no obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise. These risks and uncertainties are discussed in more detail under “Business,” “Risk Factors,” “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” and “Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements” in our most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K and in our Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q and other documents on file with the SEC.

OKLAHOMA GAS AND ELECTRIC COMPANY

We generate, transmit, distribute and sell electric energy in Oklahoma and western Arkansas. Our rates are subject to regulation by the Oklahoma Corporation Commission, the Arkansas Public Service Commission and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission. We are a wholly-owned subsidiary of OGE Energy Corp. (“OGE Energy”), which is a holding company with investments in energy and energy services providers offering physical delivery and related services for both electricity and natural gas primarily in the south central United States. We are the largest electric utility in Oklahoma, and our franchised service territory includes Fort Smith, Arkansas and the surrounding communities. We sold our retail natural gas business in 1928 and are no longer engaged in the natural gas distribution business.

We own and operate an interconnected electric generation, transmission and distribution system, located in Oklahoma and western Arkansas, which included 15 generating stations with an aggregate capability of approximately 7,120 megawatts at December 31, 2020. We furnish retail electric service in 267 communities and their contiguous rural and suburban areas. Our service area covers approximately 30,000 square miles in Oklahoma and western Arkansas, including Oklahoma City, the largest city in Oklahoma, and Fort Smith, Arkansas, the second largest city in that state. Of the 267 communities that we serve, 241 are located in Oklahoma and 26 in Arkansas. We derived approximately 92 percent of our total electric operating revenues for the year ended December 31, 2020 from sales in Oklahoma and the remainder from sales in Arkansas.

We were incorporated in 1902 under the laws of the Oklahoma Territory and became a wholly-owned subsidiary of OGE Energy Corp. on December 31, 1996. Our principal executive offices are located at 321 North Harvey, P.O. Box 321, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma 73101-0321; telephone (405) 553-3000. OGE Energy’s web site address is www.ogeenergy.com. OGE Energy’s web site address is provided for informational purposes only. No information contained in, or that can be accessed through, the web site is to be considered part of this prospectus.

RISK FACTORS

An investment in our Debt Securities involves risk. Prior to making a decision about investing in our Debt Securities, you should carefully consider any risk factors contained in a prospectus supplement, as well as the risk factors set forth in our most recently filed Annual Report on Form 10-K under the heading “Risk Factors” and other filings we make from time to time with the SEC. Such factors could affect actual results and cause results to differ materially from those expressed or implied in any forward-looking statements made by us or on our behalf. Additional risks and uncertainties not currently known to us or that we currently view as immaterial may also affect our business operations.

USE OF PROCEEDS

Unless we indicate otherwise in any applicable prospectus supplement or other offering materials, we intend to add the net proceeds from the sale of the Debt Securities to our general funds and to use those proceeds for general corporate purposes, including to fund capital expenditures, to repay short-term debt and to refund long-term debt at maturity or otherwise. The specific use of the proceeds of a particular offering of Debt Securities will be described in the applicable prospectus supplement.

DESCRIPTION OF DEBT SECURITIES

The description below contains summaries of selected provisions of the indenture, including the supplemental indenture, under which our Debt Securities will be issued. These summaries are not complete. The indenture and the form of supplemental indenture applicable to our Debt Securities have been filed as exhibits to the registration statement of which this prospectus is a part. You should read the indenture and the supplemental indenture for provisions that may be important to you. In the summaries below, we have included references to section numbers of the indenture so that you can easily locate these provisions.

We are not required to issue future issues of indebtedness under the indenture described in this prospectus. We are free to use other indentures or documentation, containing provisions different from those described in this prospectus, in connection with future issues of other indebtedness not under this registration statement. At March 31, 2021, there were 14 series of senior debt securities, aggregating $3.385 billion in principal amount, outstanding under the Indenture (as defined below).

Our Debt Securities will be represented either by global securities registered in the name of The Depository Trust Company (“DTC”), as depository (“Depository”), or its nominee, or by securities in certificated form issued to the registered owners, as described in the applicable prospectus supplement. See “Book-Entry System” in this prospectus.


General

We may issue our Debt Securities as notes or debentures or other unsecured evidences of indebtedness (collectively referred to as the “Debt Securities”) in one or more new series under an indenture dated as of October 1, 1995 between us and BOKF, NA, as successor trustee (the “Trustee”). This indenture, as previously supplemented by supplemental indentures and as to be supplemented by a new supplemental indenture for each series of Debt Securities, is referred to in this prospectus as the “Indenture.”

The Debt Securities will be unsecured obligations and will rank on a parity with our other existing and future unsecured and unsubordinated indebtedness, including other senior debt securities previously issued under the Indenture and senior debt securities that may be issued under the Indenture subsequent to the issuance of the Debt Securities. We sometimes refer in this prospectus to debt securities issued under the Indenture, whether previously issued or to be issued in the future, including the Debt Securities, as the “Notes.” The amount of Notes that we may issue under the Indenture is not limited.

The Debt Securities may be issued in one or more series, may be issued at various times, may have differing maturity dates and may bear interest at differing rates. The prospectus supplement applicable to each issue of Debt Securities will specify:

the title, aggregate principal amount and offering price of that series of Debt Securities;

the interest rate or rates, or method of calculation of the rate or rates, on that series, and the date from which the interest will accrue;

the dates on which interest will be payable;

the record dates for payments of interest;

the date on which the Debt Securities of that series will mature;

any redemption terms;

the period or periods within which, the price or prices at which and the terms and conditions upon which the Debt Securities of that series may be repaid, in whole or in part, at the option of the holder thereof; and

other specific terms applicable to the Debt Securities of that series.

Any special U.S. Federal income tax considerations applicable to Debt Securities sold at an original issue discount and any special U.S. Federal income tax or other considerations applicable to any Debt Securities that are denominated in a currency other than U.S. dollars will be described in the prospectus supplement relating to that series of Debt Securities.

Unless we indicate otherwise in the applicable prospectus supplement, the Debt Securities will be denominated in U.S. dollars in minimum denominations of $1,000 and integral multiples of $1,000 in excess thereof.

Unless we indicate otherwise in the applicable prospectus supplement, there will be no provisions in the Indenture or the Debt Securities that require us to redeem, or permit the holders to cause a redemption or repurchase of, the Debt Securities or that otherwise protect the holders in the event that we incur substantial additional indebtedness, whether or not in connection with a change in control of our company. However, any change in control transaction that involves the incurrence of substantial additional long-term indebtedness by us could require approval of state utility regulatory authorities and, possibly, of federal utility regulatory authorities.

Registration, Transfer And Exchange

Debt Securities of any series may be exchanged for other Debt Securities of the same series of any authorized denominations and of a like aggregate principal amount, stated maturity and original issue date. (Section 2.06 of the Indenture.)

Unless we indicate otherwise in the applicable prospectus supplement, Debt Securities may be presented for registration of transfer (duly endorsed or accompanied by a duly executed written instrument of transfer), at the office of the Trustee maintained for that purpose and referred to in the applicable prospectus supplement, without service charge and upon payment of any taxes and other governmental charges as described in the Indenture. Any transfer or exchange will be effected upon the Trustee’s satisfaction with the documents of title and indemnity of the person making the request. (Sections 2.06 and 2.07 of the Indenture.)

The Trustee will not be required to exchange or register a transfer of any Debt Securities of a series that is selected, called or being called for redemption except, in the case of any Debt Security to be redeemed in part, the portion thereof not to be so redeemed. (Section 2.06 of the Indenture.) See “Book-Entry System” in this prospectus.


Payment and Paying Agents

Principal, interest and premium, if any, on Debt Securities issued in the form of global securities will be paid in the manner described below under the heading “Book-Entry System.” Unless we indicate otherwise in the applicable prospectus supplement, interest on Debt Securities that are in the form of certificated securities will be paid by check mailed to the holder at that holder’s address as it appears in the register for the Debt Securities maintained by the Trustee; however, a holder of $10,000,000 or more of Notes having the same interest payment dates will be entitled to receive payments of interest by wire transfer to a bank within the continental United States, if appropriate wire transfer instructions have been received by the Trustee on or prior to the applicable record date. (Section 2.12 of the Indenture.) Unless we indicate otherwise in the applicable prospectus supplement, the principal, interest at maturity and premium, if any, on Debt Securities in the form of certificated securities will be payable in immediately available funds at the office of the Trustee upon presentation of the Debt Securities. (Section 2.12 of the Indenture.)

All monies paid by us to a paying agent for the payment of principal, interest or premium on any Debt Securities that remain unclaimed at the end of two years after that principal, interest or premium has become due and payable will be repaid to us, and the holders of those Debt Securities may thereafter look only to us for payment of that principal, interest or premium. (Section 5.04 of the Indenture.)

Events of Default

The following are events of default under the Indenture:

default in the payment of principal and premium, if any, on any Note issued under the Indenture when due and payable and continuance of that default for a period of five days;

default in the payment of interest on any Note issued under the Indenture when due and continuance of that default for 30 days;

default in the performance or breach of any of our other covenants or warranties in the Indenture and the continuation of that default or breach for 90 days after written notice to us as provided in the Indenture; and

specified events of bankruptcy, insolvency or reorganization of our company. (Section 8.01 of the Indenture.)

Acceleration of Maturity. If an event of default occurs and is continuing, either the Trustee or the holders of a majority in principal amount of the outstanding Notes may declare the principal amount of all Notes to be due and payable immediately. At any time after an acceleration of the Notes has been declared, but before a judgment or decree of the immediate payment of the principal amount of the Notes has been obtained, if we pay or deposit with the Trustee a sum sufficient to pay all matured installments of interest and the principal and any premium which has become due otherwise than by acceleration and all defaults have been cured or waived, then that payment or deposit will cause an automatic rescission and annulment of the acceleration of the Notes. (Section 8.01 of the Indenture.)

Indemnification of Trustee. The Trustee generally will be under no obligation to exercise any of its rights or powers under the Indenture at the request or direction of any of the holders unless the holders have offered reasonable security to the Trustee. (Section 9.02 of the Indenture.)

Right to Direct Proceedings. The holders of a majority in principal amount of the outstanding Notes generally will have the right to direct the time, method and place of conducting any proceeding for any remedy available to the Trustee, or of exercising any trust or power conferred on the Trustee, relating to the Notes. The holders of a majority in principal amount of the outstanding Notes generally will be able to waive any past default or event of default except a default in the payment of principal, premium or interest on the Notes. (Section 8.07 of the Indenture.) Each holder has the right to institute a proceeding relating to the Indenture, but this right is subject to conditions precedent specified in the Indenture. (Section 8.04 of the Indenture.)

Notice of Default. The Trustee is required to give the holders notice of the occurrence of a default within 90 days of the default, unless the default is cured or waived. Except in the case of a payment default on the Notes, however, the Trustee may withhold notice if it determines in good faith that it is in the interest of holders to do so. (Section 8.08 of the Indenture.) We are required to deliver to the Trustee each year a certificate as to whether or not we are in compliance with the conditions and covenants under the Indenture. (Section 6.06 of the Indenture.)


Modification

Unless we indicate otherwise in the applicable prospectus supplement, we and the Trustee may modify and amend the Indenture and the Debt Securities from time to time. Depending upon the type of amendment, we may not need the consent or approval of any of the holders of the Notes, or we may need either the consent or approval of the holders of a majority in principal amount of the outstanding Notes or the consent or approval of each holder affected by the proposed amendment.

We will not need the consent of the holders for the following types of amendments:

adding to our covenants for the benefit of the holders or surrendering a right given to us in the Indenture;

adding security for the Notes; or

making various other modifications, generally of a ministerial or immaterial nature. (Section 13.01 of the Indenture.)

We will need the consent of the holders of each outstanding Note affected by a proposed amendment if the amendment would cause any of the following to occur:

a change in the maturity date or redemption date of any Note;

a reduction in the interest rate or extension of the time of payment of interest;

a reduction in the principal amount of any Note, the interest or premium payable on any Note, or the amount of principal that could be declared due and payable prior to the stated maturity;

a change in the currency of any payment of principal, premium or interest on any Note;

an impairment of the right of a holder to institute suit for the enforcement of any payment relating to any Note;

a reduction in the percentage of outstanding Notes necessary to consent to the modification or amendment of the Indenture; or

a modification of these requirements or a reduction to less than a majority of the percentage of outstanding Notes necessary to waive any past default. (Section 13.02 of the Indenture.)

Amendments other than those described in the above two paragraphs will require the approval of a majority in principal amount of the outstanding Notes.

Defeasance and Discharge

We may be discharged from all obligations relating to the Notes and the Indenture (except for specified obligations such as obligations to register the transfer or exchange of Notes, replace stolen, lost or mutilated Notes and maintain paying agencies) if we irrevocably deposit with the Trustee, in trust for the benefit of holders of Notes, money or U.S. government obligations, or any combination thereof, sufficient to make all payments of principal, premium and interest on the Notes on the dates those payments are due. To discharge those obligations, we must deliver to the Trustee an opinion of counsel that the holders of the Notes will not recognize income, gain or loss for U.S. Federal income tax purposes as a result of the defeasance or discharge of the Indenture. If we discharge our obligations as described above, the holders of Notes must look only to the funds deposited with the Trustee, and not us, for payments on the Notes. (Section 5.01 of the Indenture.)

Consolidation, Merger and Sale of Assets; No Financial Covenants

We will not merge into any other corporation or sell or otherwise transfer all or substantially all our assets unless the successor or transferee corporation assumes by supplemental indenture our obligations to pay the principal, interest and any premium on all the Notes and our obligation to perform every covenant in the Indenture that we are supposed to perform or observe. Upon any merger, sale or transfer of all or substantially all of our assets, the successor or transferee corporation will succeed to, and be substituted for, and may exercise all of our rights and powers under the Indenture with the same effect as if the successor corporation had been named as us in the Indenture, and we will be released from all obligations under the Indenture. The Indenture defines all or substantially all of our assets as being 50 percent or more of our total assets as shown on our balance sheet at the end of the prior year and specifically permits any sale, transfer or conveyance during a calendar year of less than 50 percent of our total assets without the consent of the holders of the Notes. (Sections 12.01 and 12.02 of the Indenture.)

Unless we indicate otherwise in the applicable prospectus supplement, the Indenture will not contain any financial or other similar restrictive covenants.


No Limitations on Liens or Sale and Leaseback Transactions

At March 31, 2021, we had 14 other series of our Notes issued under the Indenture outstanding in the aggregate principal amount of $3.385 billion. Although subject to earlier redemption at our option, the outstanding Notes mature between July 15, 2027 and August 15, 2047. Certain of these series of our Notes have provisions that limit (subject to certain exceptions) our ability to issue secured debt unless, at the time the secured debt is issued, we also equally secure such outstanding Notes. As a result, if in the future we were to issue secured debt, the outstanding series of Notes that contain this provision would also become secured. Unless otherwise specified in the applicable prospectus supplement, the Debt Securities offered hereby will not contain this provision. Therefore, the Debt Securities offered hereby would be effectively subordinated to the secured debt. There is no limit on the amount of debt that we may issue and, in the future, we may issue debt that includes provisions similar to those applicable to our other outstanding Notes.

In addition, although certain other series of our other Notes also have provisions that limit our ability to enter into sale and lease-back transactions, unless otherwise specified in the applicable prospectus supplement, the Debt Securities offered hereby will not contain this provision.

Resignation or Removal of Trustee

The Trustee may resign at any time by notifying us in writing and specifying the day that the resignation is to take effect. The resignation will not take effect, however, until a successor trustee has been appointed. (Section 9.10 of the Indenture.)

The holders of a majority in principal amount of the outstanding Notes may remove the Trustee at any time. In addition, so long as no event of default or event which, with the giving of notice or lapse of time or both, would become an event of default has occurred and is continuing, we may remove the Trustee upon (1) notice to the Trustee and the holder of each Note outstanding under the Indenture and (2) appointment of a successor Trustee. (Section 9.10 of the Indenture.)

Concerning the Trustee

BOKF, NA is the Trustee under the Indenture. We and our affiliates maintain banking relationships with the Trustee in the ordinary course of business. The Trustee also acts as trustee for some of our other securities and may act as the trustee for securities of our affiliates.

BOOK-ENTRY SYSTEM

Unless we indicate otherwise in the applicable prospectus supplement, The Depository Trust Company (“DTC”), New York, New York, will act as securities depository for the Debt Securities. The Debt Securities will be issued as fully-registered securities registered in the name of Cede & Co., DTC’s partnership nominee, or such other name as may be requested by an authorized representative of DTC. One fully-registered certificate will be issued for each issue of Debt Securities, each in the aggregate principal amount of any such issue, and will be deposited with DTC. If, however, the aggregate principal amount of any issue exceeds $500 million, one certificate will be issued with respect to each $500 million of principal amount, and an additional certificate will be issued with respect to any remaining principal amount of any such issue.

DTC, the world’s largest securities depository, is a limited-purpose trust company organized under the New York Banking Law, a “banking organization” within the meaning of the New York Banking Law, a member of the Federal Reserve System, a “clearing corporation” within the meaning of the New York Uniform Commercial Code and a “clearing agency” registered pursuant to the provisions of Section 17A of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. DTC holds and provides asset servicing for issues of U.S. and non-U.S. equity issues, corporate and municipal debt issues and money market instruments that DTC’s participants (“Direct Participants”) deposit with DTC. DTC also facilitates the post-trade settlement among Direct Participants of sales and other securities transactions in deposited securities, through electronic computerized book-entry transfers and pledges between Direct Participants’ accounts. This eliminates the need for physical movement of securities certificates. Direct Participants include both U.S. and non-U.S. securities brokers and dealers, banks, trust companies, clearing corporations and certain other organizations. DTC is a wholly-owned subsidiary of The Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation (“DTCC”). DTCC is the holding company for DTC, National Securities Clearing Corporation and Fixed Income Clearing Corporation, all of which are registered clearing agencies. DTCC is owned by the users of its regulated subsidiaries. Access to the DTC system is also available to others such as both U.S. and non-U.S. securities brokers and dealers, banks, trust companies and clearing corporations that clear through or maintain a custodial relationship with a Direct Participant, either directly or indirectly (“Indirect Participants”). The DTC Rules applicable to its Participants are on file with the SEC. More information about DTC can be found at www.dtcc.com.


Purchases of Debt Securities under the DTC system must be made by or through Direct Participants, which will receive a credit for the Debt Securities on DTC’s records. The ownership interest of each actual purchaser of each Debt Security (“Beneficial Owner”) is in turn to be recorded on the Direct and Indirect Participants’ records. Beneficial Owners will not receive written confirmation from DTC of their purchase. Beneficial Owners are, however, expected to receive written confirmations providing details of the transaction, as well as periodic statements of their holdings, from the Direct or Indirect Participant through which the Beneficial Owner entered into the transaction. Transfers of ownership interests in the Debt Securities are to be accomplished by entries made on the books of Direct and Indirect Participants acting on behalf of Beneficial Owners. Beneficial Owners will not receive certificates representing their ownership interests in Debt Securities, except in the event that use of the book-entry system for the Debt Securities is discontinued.

To facilitate subsequent transfers, all Debt Securities deposited by Direct Participants with DTC are registered in the name of DTC’s partnership nominee, Cede & Co., or such other name as may be requested by an authorized representative of DTC. The deposit of Debt Securities with DTC and their registration in the name of Cede & Co. or such other DTC nominee do not effect any change in beneficial ownership. DTC has no knowledge of the actual Beneficial Owners of the Debt Securities; DTC’s records reflect only the identity of the Direct Participants to whose accounts such Debt Securities are credited, which may or may not be the Beneficial Owners. The Direct and Indirect Participants will remain responsible for keeping account of their holdings on behalf of their customers.

Conveyance of notices and other communications by DTC to Direct Participants, by Direct Participants to Indirect Participants, and by Direct Participants and Indirect Participants to Beneficial Owners will be governed by arrangements among them, subject to any statutory or regulatory requirements as may be in effect from time to time. Beneficial Owners of Debt Securities may wish to take certain steps to augment the transmission to them of notices of significant events with respect to the Debt Securities, such as redemptions, tenders, defaults, and proposed amendments to the Debt Security documents. For example, Beneficial Owners of Debt Securities may wish to ascertain that the nominee holding the Debt Securities for their benefit has agreed to obtain and transmit notices to Beneficial Owners. In the alternative, Beneficial Owners may wish to provide their names and addresses to the registrar and request that copies of notices be provided directly to them.

Redemption notices shall be sent to DTC. If less than all of the Debt Securities within an issue are being redeemed, DTC’s practice is to determine by lot the amount of the interest of each Direct Participant in such issue to be redeemed.

Neither DTC nor Cede & Co. (nor any other DTC nominee) will consent or vote with respect to Debt Securities unless authorized by a Direct Participant in accordance with DTC’s procedures. Under its usual procedures, DTC mails an Omnibus Proxy to us as soon as possible after the record date. The Omnibus Proxy assigns Cede & Co.’s consenting or voting rights to those Direct Participants to whose accounts Debt Securities are credited on the record date (identified in a listing attached to the Omnibus Proxy).

Redemption proceeds, distributions and interest payments on the Debt Securities will be made to Cede & Co., or such other nominee as may be requested by an authorized representative of DTC. DTC’s practice is to credit Direct Participants’ accounts upon DTC’s receipt of funds and corresponding detail information from us or our agent, on payable date in accordance with their respective holdings shown on DTC’s records. Payments by Participants to Beneficial Owners will be governed by standing instructions and customary practices, as is the case with securities held for the accounts of customers in bearer form or registered in “street name,” and will be the responsibility of such Participant and not of DTC, our agent or us, subject to any statutory or regulatory requirements as may be in effect from time to time. Payment of redemption proceeds, distributions and interest payments to Cede & Co. (or such other nominee as may be requested by an authorized representative of DTC) is the responsibility of us or our agent, disbursement of such payments to Direct Participants will be the responsibility of DTC, and disbursement of such payments to the Beneficial Owners will be the responsibility of Direct and Indirect Participants.

DTC may discontinue providing its services as depository with respect to the Debt Securities at any time by giving reasonable notice to us or our agent. Under such circumstances, in the event that a successor depository is not obtained, Debt Security certificates are required to be printed and delivered.

We may decide to discontinue use of the system of book-entry-only transfers through DTC (or a successor securities depository). In that event, Debt Security certificates will be printed and delivered to DTC.

The information in this section concerning DTC and DTC’s book-entry system has been obtained from sources that we believe to be reliable, but neither we nor any underwriter takes any responsibility for the accuracy thereof.


PLAN OF DISTRIBUTION

We may sell the Debt Securities offered by this prospectus through underwriters, through dealers, through agents, directly to other purchasers or through a combination of these methods, as described in the prospectus supplement relating to an offering of Debt Securities. The distribution of the Debt Securities may be effected from time to time in one or more transactions at a fixed price or prices, which may be changed, at market prices prevailing at the time of sale, at prices related to such prevailing market prices or at negotiated prices.

The applicable prospectus supplement will contain specific information relating to the terms of the offering, including:

the name or names of any underwriters or agents;

the purchase price of the Debt Securities;

our net proceeds from the sale of the Debt Securities;

any underwriting discounts and other items constituting underwriters’ compensation; and

the initial public offering price and any discounts, concessions or commissions allowed or re-allowed or paid to dealers.

By Underwriters

If underwriters are used in the sale, the Debt Securities will be acquired by the underwriters for their own account. Underwriters may offer the Debt Securities directly or through underwriting syndicates represented by one or more managing underwriters. The underwriters may resell the Debt Securities in one or more transactions, including negotiated transactions, at a fixed public offering price, which may be changed, or at varying prices determined at the time of sale. The obligations of the underwriters to purchase the Debt Securities will be subject to certain conditions. The initial public offering price and any discounts or concessions allowed or re-allowed or paid to dealers may be changed from time to time.

By Dealers

If dealers are used in the sale, unless otherwise specified in the applicable prospectus supplement, we will sell the Debt Securities to the dealers as principals. The dealers may then resell the Debt Securities to the public at varying prices to be determined by the dealers at the time of resale. The applicable prospectus supplement will contain more information about the dealers, including the names of the dealers and the terms of our agreement with them.

By Agents and Direct Sales

We may sell the Debt Securities directly to the public, without the use of underwriters, dealers or agents. We may also sell the Debt Securities through agents we designate from time to time. The applicable prospectus supplement will contain more information about the agents, including the names of the agents and any commission we agree to pay the agents.

General Information

Underwriters, dealers and agents that participate in the distribution of Debt Securities may be deemed to be underwriters, and any discounts or commissions received by them from us and any profit on the resale of Debt Securities by them may be deemed to be underwriting discounts and commissions under the Securities Act of 1933. Any person who may be deemed to be an underwriter will be identified, and any compensation received from us will be described, in the prospectus supplement.

Under agreements into which we may enter in connection with the sale of Debt Securities, underwriters, dealers and agents who participate in the distribution of Debt Securities may be entitled to indemnification by us against specified liabilities, including liabilities under the Securities Act of 1933.

Agents, dealers and underwriters may be customers of, engage in transactions with, or perform services for us or our affiliates in the ordinary course of business.

LEGAL OPINIONS

Unless otherwise indicated in the applicable prospectus supplement, legal opinions relating to the Debt Securities and certain other matters will be rendered by our counsel, GableGotwals, Tulsa, Oklahoma, and Jones Day, Chicago, Illinois.


Unless otherwise indicated in the applicable prospectus supplement, GableGotwals will pass on matters pertaining to local laws and as to these matters other counsel will rely on their opinions.

ITEM 17. UNDERTAKINGS.

(a)The undersigned registrant hereby undertakes:

(1)To file, during any period in which offers or sales are being made, a post-effective amendment to this registration statement:

(i)To include any prospectus required by section 10(a)(3) of the Securities Act of 1933;

(ii)To reflect in the prospectus any facts or events arising after the effective date of the registration statement (or the most recent post-effective amendment thereof) which, individually or in the aggregate, represent a fundamental change in the information set forth in the registration statement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, any


increase or decrease in volume of securities offered (if the total dollar value of securities offered would not exceed that which was registered) and any deviation from the low or high end of the estimated maximum offering range may be reflected in the form of prospectus filed with the Commission pursuant to Rule 424(b) if, in the aggregate, the changes in volume and price represent no more than 20 percent change in the maximum aggregate offering price set forth in the “Calculation of Registration Fee” table in the effective registration statement; and

(iii)To include any material information with respect to the plan of distribution not previously disclosed in the registration statement or any material change to such information in the registration statement;

Provided however, That:

(a)Paragraphs (1)(i) and (1)(ii) of this section do not apply if the registration statement is on Form S-8, and the information required to be included in a post-effective amendment by those paragraphs is contained in reports filed with or furnished to the Commission by the registrant pursuant to section 13 or section 15(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 that are incorporated by reference in the registration statement; and

(b)Paragraphs (1)(i), (1)(ii) and (1)(iii) of this section do not apply if the registration statement is on Form S-3 or Form F-3 and the information required to be included in a post-effective amendment by those paragraphs is contained in reports filed with or furnished to the Commission by the registrant pursuant to section 13 or section 15(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 that are incorporated by reference in the registration statement, or is contained in a form of prospectus filed pursuant to Rule 424(b) that is part of the registration statement.

(2)That, for the purpose of determining any liability under the Securities Act of 1933, each such post-effective amendment shall be deemed to be a new registration statement relating to the securities offered therein, and the offering of such securities at that time shall be deemed to be the initial bona fide offering thereof.

(3)To remove from registration by means of a post-effective amendment any of the securities being registered which remain unsold at the termination of the offering.

(4)That, for the purpose of determining liability under the Securities Act of 1933 to any purchaser:

(i)If the registrant is relying on Rule 430B:

(a)Each prospectus filed by the registrant pursuant to Rule 424(b)(3)shall be deemed to be part of the registration statement as of the date the filed prospectus was deemed part of and included in the registration statement; and

(b)Each prospectus required to be filed pursuant to Rule 424(b)(2), (b)(5), or (b)(7) as part of a registration statement in reliance on Rule 430B relating to an offering made pursuant to Rule 415(a)(1)(i), (vii), or (x) for the purpose of providing the information required by section 10(a) of the Securities Act of 1933 shall be deemed to be part of and included in the registration statement as of the earlier of the date such form of prospectus is first used after effectiveness or the date of the first contract of sale of securities in the offering described in the prospectus. As provided in Rule 430B, for liability purposes of the issuer and any person that is at that date an underwriter, such date shall be deemed to be a new effective date of the registration statement relating to the securities in the registration statement to which that prospectus relates, and the offering of such securities at that time shall be deemed to be the initial bona fide offering thereof. Provided, however, that no statement made in a registration statement or prospectus that is part of the registration statement or made in a document incorporated or deemed incorporated by reference into the registration statement or prospectus that is part of the registration statement will, as to a purchaser with a time of contract of sale prior to such effective date, supersede or modify any statement that was made in the registration statement or prospectus that was part of the registration statement or made in any such document immediately prior to such effective date; or

(ii)If the registrant is subject to Rule 430C, each prospectus filed pursuant to Rule 424(b) as part of a registration statement relating to an offering, other than registration statements relying on Rule 430B or other than prospectuses filed in reliance on Rule 430A, shall be deemed to be part of and included in the registration statement as of the date it is first used after effectiveness. Provided, however, that no statement made in a registration statement or


prospectus that is part of the registration statement or made in a document incorporated or deemed incorporated by reference into the registration statement or prospectus that is part of the registration statement will, as to a purchaser with a time of contract of sale prior to such first use, supersede or modify any statement that was made in the registration statement or prospectus that was part of the registration statement or made in any such document immediately prior to such date of first use.

(5)That, for the purpose of determining liability of the registrant under the Securities Act of 1933 to any purchaser in the initial distribution of the securities: The undersigned registrant undertakes that in a primary offering of securities of the undersigned registrant pursuant to this registration statement, regardless of the underwriting method used to sell the securities to the purchaser, if the securities are offered or sold to such purchaser by means of any of the following communications, the undersigned registrant will be a seller to the purchaser and will be considered to offer or sell such securities to such purchaser:

(i)Any preliminary prospectus or prospectus of the undersigned registrant relating to the offering required to be filed pursuant to Rule 424;

(ii)Any free writing prospectus relating to the offering prepared by or on behalf of the undersigned registrant or used or referred to by the undersigned registrant;

(iii)The portion of any other free writing prospectus relating to the offering containing material information about the undersigned registrant or its securities provided by or on behalf of the undersigned registrant; and

(iv)Any other communication that is an offer in the offering made by the undersigned registrant to the purchaser.

(b)The undersigned registrant hereby undertakes that, for purposes of determining any liability under the Securities Act of 1933, each filing of the registrant’s annual report pursuant to section 13(a) or section 15(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (and, where applicable, each filing of an employee benefit plan’s annual report pursuant to section 15(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934) that is incorporated by reference in the registration statement shall be deemed to be a new registration statement relating to the securities offered therein, and the offering of such securities at that time shall be deemed to be the initial bona fide offering thereof.

(c)Insofar as indemnification for liabilities arising under the Securities Act of 1933 may be permitted to directors, officers and controlling persons of the registrant pursuant to the foregoing provisions, or otherwise, the registrant has been advised that in the opinion of the Securities and Exchange Commission such indemnification is against public policy as expressed in the Act and is, therefore, unenforceable. In the event that a claim for indemnification against such liabilities (other than the payment by the registrant of expenses incurred or paid by a director, officer or controlling person of the registrant in the successful defense of any action, suit or proceeding) is asserted by such director, officer or controlling person in connection with the securities being registered, the registrant will, unless in the opinion of its counsel the matter has been settled by controlling precedent, submit to a court of appropriate jurisdiction the question whether such indemnification by it is against public policy as expressed in the Act and will be governed by the final adjudication of such issue.

This Global Security is a global security in respect of a duly authorized issue of ___________ (the “Securities of this Series”, which term includes any Global Securities representing such Securities) of the Company issued and to be issued under an Indenture dated as of November 1, 2004 between the Company and BOKF, NA, as successor trustee (the “Trustee”, which term includes any subsequent successor Trustee under the Indenture) to UMB Bank, N.A., and indentures supplemental thereto (collectively, the “Indenture”).

Reference is hereby made to the Indenture for a more complete statement of the respective rights, limitations of rights, duties and immunities under the Indenture of the Company, the Trustee and the Security holders and of the terms upon which the Securities are and are to be authenticated and delivered.

[Insert Redemption Terms]

[The Securities of this Series will be repayable on _____________, at the option of the Holders thereof, at 100% of their principal amount, together with accrued and unpaid interest to _________. In order for this Global Security to be repaid, the Company must receive at the corporate trust office of the Trustee during the period from and including ___________ to and including the close of business on ___________ (or if ____________ is not a Business Day, the next succeeding Business Day): (i) this Global Security with the form entitled “Option to Elect Repayment” on this Global Security duly completed, or (ii) a telegram, telex, facsimile transmission or letter from a member of a national securities exchange or the National Association of Securities Dealers, Inc. or a commercial bank or a trust company in the United States of America setting forth the name of the Holder of this Global Security, the principal amount of this Global Security, the principal amount of this Global Security to be repaid, a statement that the option to elect repayment is being exercised thereby and a guarantee that this Global Security (with the form entitled “Option to Elect Repayment” on this Global Security duly completed) will be received at the Trustee’s corporate trust office, no later than five Business Days after the date of such telegram, telex, facsimile transmission or letter and this Global Security and form duly completed are received at the Trustee’s office, by such fifth Business Day. Effective exercise of the repayment option by the Holder of any Security of this Series shall be irrevocable. No transfer or exchange of any Security of this Series (or, in the event that any Security of this Series is to be repaid in part, such portion of the Security of this Series to be repaid) will be permitted after exercise of the repayment option. The repayment option may be exercised by the Holder of a Security of this Series for less than the entire principal amount of the Security of this Series, provided the principal amount which is to be repaid is set forth on the form entitled “Option to Elect Repayment” on the Security of this Series and is equal to $1,000 or any integral multiple thereof. All questions as to the validity, eligibility (including time of receipt) and acceptance of any Security of this Series for repayment will be determined by the Company, whose determination will be final, binding and non-appealable. Upon timely delivery of a Security of this Series to the Trustee with the “Option to Elect Repayment” form completed in accordance with the foregoing, the outstanding principal amount of such Security of this Series (or portion thereof indicated in the “Option to Elect Repayment”) shall become due and


payable on ___________, at a price equal to ___% of the principal amount to be repaid plus accrued and unpaid interest to ______________.]

Interest payments for this Global Security shall be computed and paid on the basis of a 360-day year of twelve 30-day months. If any Interest Payment Date or date on which the principal of this Global Security is required to be paid is not a Business Day, then payment of principal, premium or interest need not be made on such date but may be made on the next succeeding Business Day with the same force and effect as if made on such Interest Payment Date or date on which the principal of this Global Security is required to be paid and, in the case of timely payment thereof, no interest shall accrue for the period from and after such Interest Payment Date or the date on which the principal of this Global Security is required to be paid.

The Company, at its option, and subject to the terms and conditions provided in the Indenture, will be discharged from any and all obligations in respect of the Securities (except for certain obligations including obligations to register the transfer or exchange of Securities, replace stolen, lost or mutilated Securities, maintain paying agencies and hold monies for payment in trust, all as set forth in the Indenture) if the Company deposits with the Trustee money, U.S. Government Obligations which through the payment of interest thereon and principal thereof in accordance with their terms will provide money, or a combination of money and U.S. Government Obligations, in any event in an amount sufficient, without reinvestment, to pay all the principal of and any premium and interest on the Securities on the dates such payments are due in accordance with the terms of the Securities.

If an Event of Default shall occur and be continuing, the principal of the Securities may be declared due and payable in the manner and with the effect provided in the Indenture.

The Indenture permits, with certain exceptions as therein provided, the amendment thereof and the modifications of the rights and obligations of the Company and the rights of the Security holders under the Indenture at any time by the Company and the Trustee with the consent of the Holders of not less than a majority in principal amount of the outstanding Securities.

The Company, at its option, and subject to the terms and conditions provided in the Indenture, will be discharged from any and all obligations in respect of the Notes (except for certain obligations including obligations to register the transfer or exchange of Notes, replace stolen, lost or mutilated Notes, maintain paying agencies and hold monies for payment in trust, all as set forth in the Indenture) if the Company deposits with the Trustee money, U.S. Government Obligations which through the payment of interest thereon and principal thereof in accordance with their terms will provide money, or a combination of money and U.S. Government Obligations, in any event in an amount sufficient, without reinvestment, to pay all the principal of and any premium and interest on the Notes on the dates such payments are due in accordance with the terms of the Notes.

No reference herein to the Indenture and to provisions of this Global Note or of the Indenture shall alter or impair the obligation of the Company, which is absolute and unconditional, to pay the principal of and any premium and interest on this Global Note at the times, places and rates and the coin or currency prescribed in the Indenture.

As provided in the Indenture and subject to certain limitations therein set forth, this Global Note may be transferred only as permitted by the legend hereto.

If at any time the Depositary for this Global Note notifies the Company that it is unwilling or unable to continue as Depositary for this Global Note or if at any time the Depositary for this Global Note shall no longer be eligible or in good standing under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, or other applicable statute or regulation, the Company shall appoint a successor Depositary with respect to this Global Note.

Re:    Registration Statement on Form S-3 Filed by OGE Energy Corp.

Ladies and Gentlemen:

We have acted as special Oklahoma counsel to OGE Energy Corp., an Oklahoma corporation (the “Company”), in connection with the preparation and filing of an automatic shelf registration statement on Form S-3 (the “Registration Statement”) filed by the Company with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”) under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Act”), relating to the registration under the Act and the proposed issuance and sale from time to time pursuant to Rule 415 under the Act of certain securities, including the following: (a) one or more series of debt securities of the Company (collectively, the “Debt Securities”) to be issued under the Indenture, dated as of November 1, 2004, as previously supplemented and amended by supplemental indentures and a new supplemental indenture for each series of Debt Securities (as so supplemented, the “Indenture”), all from the Company to BOKF, NA, as successor trustee (the “Trustee”); and (b) shares of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.01 per share (the “Common Stock”). The Debt Securities and Common Stock are collectively referred to as the “Securities.”

In arriving at the opinions expressed below, we have examined originals or copies that have been certified as being true and complete copies of the originals of such documents, corporate records, certificates of officers of the Company and of public officials and other instruments as we have deemed necessary or advisable to enable us to render these opinions. In our examination, we have assumed the genuineness of all signatures, the legal capacity and competency of all natural persons, the authenticity of all documents submitted to us as originals and the conformity to original documents of all documents submitted to us as copies. In making our examination of executed documents or documents to be executed, we have assumed (i) that the parties thereto, including the Company, had or will have the power, corporate or other, to enter into and perform all obligations thereunder and (ii) the due authorization by all requisite action, corporate or other, and the execution and delivery by such parties of such documents, and the validity and binding effect thereof on such parties. As to any facts material to these opinions, we have relied, to the extent we deemed appropriate and without independent investigation, upon statements and representations of officers and other representatives of the Company and others.

We have assumed without independent investigation that:

(i) at the time any Securities are sold under the Registration Statement (the “Relevant Time”), the Registration Statement and any supplements and amendments thereto (including post-effective amendments) will be effective and will comply with all applicable laws;

(ii) at the Relevant Time, the Company will have duly completed all corporate or other actions required to be taken by it to duly (a) authorize each proposed issuance of Securities, which shall remain in full force and effect and (b) effect the issuance of such Securities, including the execution (if certificated) and delivery thereof;

(iii) all Securities will be issued and sold in the manner stated in the Registration Statement and any applicable prospectus supplement;

(iv) at the Relevant Time, a prospectus supplement will have been prepared and filed with the Commission describing the Securities offered thereby and all related documentation will comply with all applicable laws;

(v) neither the restated certificate of incorporation of the Company, as amended to date, on file with the Secretary of State of the State of Oklahoma nor the by-laws of the Company, as amended to date, will be amended in any manner that would affect any legal conclusion set forth herein;

(vi) at the Relevant Time, the Company will be in good standing, and will have the requisite legal status and legal capacity, under the laws of the State of Oklahoma;


(vii) the Indenture has been duly authorized, executed and delivered by the Company to the Trustee, and any supplemental indenture thereto has been or will be duly authorized, executed and delivered by the Trustee, and any Debt Securities that may be issued will be manually authenticated, signed or countersigned, as the case may be, by duly authorized officers of the Trustee;

(viii) the choice of Oklahoma law to govern the Indenture and any supplemental indenture thereto is a valid legal provision;

(ix) the choice of currency in which any Securities are denominated does not contravene any exchange control or other laws of the nation issuing such currency;

(x) upon issuance of any shares of Common Stock, the total number of shares of Common Stock issued and outstanding will not exceed the total number of shares of Common Stock that the Company is then authorized to issue under its certificate of incorporation, as then in effect, and other relevant documents; and

(xi) at the Relevant Time, a definitive purchase, underwriting or similar agreement and any other necessary agreement with respect to any Securities offered or issued will have been duly authorized by all necessary corporate or other action of the Company and duly executed and delivered by the Company and the other parties thereto.

Based on such examination and review, and subject to the assumptions, exceptions, qualifications and limitations set forth herein, we are of the opinion that:

1. With respect to any series of Debt Securities, when:

(a) the Indenture and any supplemental indenture related to such Debt Securities has been qualified under the Trust Indenture Act of 1939, as amended;

(b) any supplemental indenture relating to the Debt Securities has been duly authorized, executed and delivered by the Company and the other parties thereto;

(c) the terms of the Debt Securities and of their issuance and sale have been duly established in conformity with the Indenture and any supplemental indenture to be entered into in connection with the issuance of such Debt Securities so as not to violate any applicable law, the restated certificate of incorporation of the Company, as then in effect, or the by-laws of the Company, as then in effect, or result in a default under or breach of any agreement or instrument binding upon the Company, and so as to comply with any requirement or restriction imposed by any court or other governmental authority having jurisdiction over the Company; and

(d) the Debt Securities have been duly executed and authenticated in accordance with the provisions of the Indenture and any supplemental indenture relating to the Debt Securities and delivered to the purchasers thereof upon payment of the agreed-upon consideration therefor;

such Debt Securities, when issued and sold or otherwise distributed in accordance with the Indenture and any supplemental indenture relating to the Debt Securities and any officers’ certificate or board resolution adopted in connection with the issuance of such Debt Securities and the applicable underwriting agreement, if any, or any other duly authorized, executed and delivered valid and binding agreement, will be valid and binding obligations of the Company, enforceable against the Company in accordance with their respective terms.

2. With respect to shares of Common Stock, when such shares of Common Stock have been duly executed (in the case of certificated shares) and delivered in accordance with the applicable definitive purchase, underwriting or similar agreement for the consideration provided for therein, which consideration, on a per-share basis, shall not be less than the par value of the Common Stock, such shares of Common Stock will be validly issued, fully paid and non-assessable.

The opinions expressed above are subject to the following exceptions, qualifications, limitations and assumptions:


A. We render no opinion herein as to matters involving the laws of any jurisdiction other than the State of Oklahoma. This opinion is limited to the effect of the current state of the laws of the State of Oklahoma and the applicable federal laws of the United States of America, as these laws currently exist, and we express no opinion as to the effect of the laws of any other jurisdiction. We assume no obligation to revise or supplement this opinion in the event of future changes in such laws or the interpretation thereof.

B. The opinion set forth in paragraph 1 above is subject to (i) applicable bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, moratorium, fraudulent conveyance and other similar laws affecting creditors’ rights and remedies generally, (ii) general principles of equity including, without limitation, standards of materiality, good faith, fair dealing and reasonableness, equitable defenses and limits as to the availability of equitable remedies, whether such principles are considered in a proceeding at law or in equity, (iii) public policy considerations which may limit the rights of parties to obtain remedies, (iv) requirements that a claim with respect to any Debt Securities relate, denominated in a currency, currency unit or composite currency other than United States dollars (or a judgment denominated other than in United States dollars in respect of such claim) be converted into United States dollars at a rate of exchange prevailing on a date determined pursuant to applicable law, and (v) governmental authority to limit, delay or prohibit the making of payments outside the United States or in foreign currencies, currency units or composite currencies. The opinion set forth in paragraph 1 above is also subject to waivers of any usury defense contained in the Indenture, any supplemental indenture or the Debt Securities, which may be unenforceable.

C. We express no opinion regarding the effectiveness of (i) provisions relating to indemnification, exculpation or contribution, to the extent such provisions may be held unenforceable as contrary to public policy or federal or state securities laws, (ii) any provision waiving the right to object to venue in any court, (iii) any agreement to submit to the jurisdiction of any federal court, (iv) any waiver of the right to jury trial or (v) choice of law provisions.

We consent to the filing of this opinion as an exhibit to the Registration Statement, and we further consent to the use of our name under the caption “Legal Opinions” in the Registration Statement, the prospectus or any applicable prospectus supplement that forms a part thereof. In giving these consents, we do not thereby admit that we are within the category of persons whose consent is required under Section 7 of the Act or the rules and regulations of the Commission promulgated thereunder.

In arriving at the opinions expressed below, we have examined originals or copies that have been certified as being true and complete copies of the originals of such documents, corporate records, certificates of officers of the Company and of public officials and other instruments as we have deemed necessary or advisable to enable us to render these opinions.

(xii) at the time of the delivery of the Debt Securities, the corporate or other actions related thereto will not have been modified or rescinded, there will not have occurred any change in the law affecting the authorization, execution, delivery, validity or enforceability of such Debt Securities, none of the particular terms of such Debt Securities will violate any applicable law and neither the issuance and sale thereof nor the compliance by the Company with the terms thereof will result in a violation of any issuance limit in the corporate or other actions, any agreement or instrument then binding upon the Company or any order of any court or governmental body having jurisdiction over the Company.

Based on such examination and review, and subject to the assumptions, exceptions, qualifications and limitations set forth herein, we are of the opinion that with respect to any series of Debt Securities, when:

(d) the Debt Securities have been duly executed and authenticated in accordance with the provisions of the Indenture and any supplemental indenture relating to the Debt Securities and delivered to the purchasers thereof upon payment of the agreed-upon consideration therefor;

such Debt Securities, when issued and sold or otherwise distributed in accordance with the Indenture and any supplemental indenture relating to the Debt Securities and any officers’ certificate or board resolution adopted in connection with the issuance of such Debt Securities and the applicable underwriting agreement, if any, or any other duly authorized, executed and delivered valid and binding agreement, will be valid and binding obligations of the Company, enforceable against the Company in accordance with their respective terms.
