OG&E is paying the price for failing to have state regulators review its decision to extend a natural gas transportation contract with fellow OGE Energy Corp. subsidiary Enogex in 2009.

Company spokeswoman Kathleen O'Shea said the settlement with regulators is part of a standard audit of fuel costs.
