At Williams, we make energy happen. Our goal is to be the premier provider of large-scale energy infrastructure by connecting U.S. natural gas supplies to markets with growing demand for cleaner fuel and feedstocks. As we carry out this mission, we remain committed to doing the right thing. Our dedication to operational discipline extends to all aspects of the company. That means operating safely and responsibly every day while growing our businesses, developing our people and enhancing our communities. For more than a century, Williams has built a legacy of operating safely and efficiently while actively engaging and strengthening the communities where we operate. But we did not become a Fortune 500 company overnight. Our roots have humble beginnings. In 1908, Miller and David Williams founded a construction company in Fort Smith, Arkansas. The two brothers immediately made a name for themselves as reliable and ambitious builders who simply promised “a good job on time.” Within a few years, they were building cross-country pipelines. Since then, Williams has evolved into a modern energy infrastructure company focused primarily on natural gas.

At Williams, we are embracing our vision to provide the best transport, storage and delivery solutions for reliable, low-cost and low-carbon energy. As one of the nation’s leading energy infrastructure companies, we are committed to leveraging our large-scale natural gas network for the benefit of generations to come.As a right here, right now solution, natural gas has played and will continue to play a critical role in providing energy security, increasing energy affordability and reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Looking forward, natural gas will be critical to support our country’s aggressive electrification goals and will be key to expanding a reliable electricity grid that will be dependent upon the interdependency of natural gas and renewables. As a company that has been solving energy challenges for over 100 years, we are focused on delivering sustainable energy solutions that will benefit the world for generations to come. Williams was the first North American midstream company to commit to actionable climate targets, and we have reduced our company-wide Scope 1 and 2 GHG emissions by 43% since 2005, making considerable progress toward our 2030 goal of a 56% reduction and putting us on a positive trajectory toward our net zero GHG emissions aspiration by 2050. In early 2023, Williams became the first U.S. large- scale midstream company to join Oil & Gas Methane Partnership 2.0 (OGMP 2.0), an international methane emissions reporting initiative. We are committed to achieving the most stringent methane performance standards as prescribed by OGMP 2.0, thus setting the pace for the midstream sector in the United States and around the world. Our pipelines span more than 33,000 miles across the country and traverse thousands of communities to move approximately one third of the nation’s natural gas. Maintaining safe, secure operations is fundamental to upholding our commitment to delivering clean and reliable energy.
