Solving the Energy Challenges of the Future 

During its 2024 Analyst Day in Washington D.C., Williams announced another year of record business results as demand for natural gas in the United States and overseas continues to grow. As reported by Reuters, Williams expects 2024 and 2025 to be even stronger. 

“Williams is excited to provide additional natural gas solutions to support the reliability of the U.S. power sector as it faces growing regional demand driven in large part by the emergence of new, large-scale data centers that are accelerating throughout our key markets,” said Williams President & CEO Alan Armstrong. 

“With the buildout of electrification and renewables, as well as previously permitted LNG export growth, Williams will be there to provide additional natural gas baseload to ensure reliability,” he said. 

In 2023, the company’s contracted transmission capacity, gathering volumes and earnings surpassed previous highs, demonstrating the success of Williams’ natural gas-focused strategy even when natural gas prices are low. 

“In addition to outstanding financial results in 2023, we acquired strategic natural gas transmission, gathering and storage assets in the Rockies and on the Gulf Coast, enhancing our footprint in key areas and adding highly contracted take-or-pay transmission and fee-based storage assets to our business,” he said. 

Williams is also expanding its existing infrastructure with 18 high-return projects in execution, including approximately 3.1 Bcf/d of expansions on Transco coming online over the next few years. Continued strong natural gas demand are driving these infrastructure expansions and paving the way for future growth, according to Hart Energy and Natural Gas Intelligence.   

“I’m extremely proud of our teams for their commitment to best-in-class project execution in what has become a complex and challenging permitting environment for energy infrastructure of all types,” he said. 

Williams’ 2024 Analyst Day was held in conjunction with the company’s first Clean Energy Expo. That event brought together investor analysts, technology startups, policymakers and other stakeholders to discuss how our infrastructure today is vital to meeting the energy needs of tomorrow while further decarbonizing in the United States as well as overseas. 

“Our infrastructure today is vital to meeting the energy needs of tomorrow,” said Armstrong. “Natural gas is an immediate and scalable climate solution to reduce global emissions and serve the growing need for energy security, while creating long-term value for our shareholders.”
