Williams takes FID on Louisiana gas project to boost supplies to LNG plants

US natural gas pipeline operator Williams has taken a final investment decision on its Louisiana Energy Gateway gas gathering system to deliver supplies to Gulf Coast customers including LNG terminals.

Williams said the project would gather 1.8 Bcf/d of natural gas produced in the Haynesville basin for delivery to premium markets, including Transco, industrial markets and growing LNG export demand along the Gulf Coast.

The pipeline operator intends to create opportunities to pursue additional market access projects as well as develop carbon capture and storage infrastructure that will further decarbonize the natural gas value chain.

This announcement further supports Williams’ recently announced partnerships with Context Labs, Encino Environmental and Satlantis. These firms will supply technology solutions for the project.

The tech would enable the measurement of end-to-end, verifiable and transparent emissions data to demonstrate the low carbon benefits of produced and delivered Haynesville natural gas, according to Williams.

In addition, Williams signed a memorandum of understanding earlier this year with Quantum Energy Partners to form a joint venture that will enable the latter to become an equity investor and partner in the project.

Tulsa-based Williams expects the project to go into service in late 2024.
