Texas tops many rankings, including as the leading natural gas producer in the nation. Which is why it makes perfect sense that Williams, one of North America’s largest operators of natural gas pipelines, has deep roots in the Lone Star State. From the Barnett Shale to Eagle Ford to the Permian Basin and beyond, the company is known for its infrastructure, proven performance, integrity and a heart as big as Texas itself.
Williams’ interstate gas pipeline and gathering & processing operations span the United States, including strategic assets in the deepwater Gulf of Mexico, the Rockies, the Pacific Northwest and the Eastern Seaboard.
Williams is committed to balancing our nation’s energy needs with concerns for environmental impact, national security and cost-effective fuel choices. Our safe and reliable operations allow U.S. consumers to enjoy clean, affordable fuel for their homes and businesses independently from foreign nations.

PROJECTED IN 2020
Simply put, Williams is in the business of aggregating the best natural gas supplies and connecting them to the best and most dynamic growing markets.
Until more natural gas pipeline capacity is constructed, the amount of oil that can be produced from the Permian Basin will be limited. Williams is uniquely positioned to offer an innovative solution to connect West Texas natural gas production with gas-hungry markets located all along the upper Gulf Coast.
Williams is developing a major intrastate transmission pipeline project known as Bluebonnet Market Express (BMX) designed to funnel approximately 2 billion cubic feet of natural gas per day from the Permian to points along the Gulf Coast, creating a gateway that connects Permian producers with growing domestic and international natural gas markets. This includes access to the nation’s largest-volume pipeline system – Williams’ Transco pipeline – providing direct access to robust commercial, industrial, power generation and LNG export terminals located throughout the Gulf Coast.
As we look to expand our presence in Texas, and specifically in the Permian Basin, we will continue to explore ways of bringing real value to the state’s and the nation’s economy. As importantly, we will continue to develop our diverse footprint safely, deliberately and with an eye to respectfully serving the communities we touch. Our commitment to the safety of the public, the environment and our employees impacts every decision we make as a company.
Williams understands that “as goes Texas, so does the nation.” The people and resources of the Lone Star State are critically important to our country’s energy independence. As a strong, stable, fair and vested partner, we are proud of what we can and will accomplish together in the years to come.
