Williams Expanding Local Facility

 

Williams Mobile Bay Producer Services announced it would expand its south Mobile County facility near Coden. The company is one of several under the Tulsa, Okla.-based Williams Cos. umbrella.

 

Williams is investing $107.6 million, including machinery, equipment and additional land and buildings, to increase its natural gas processing abilities to meet the demands of heating homes, generating electricity and transportation.

 

“Williams is pleased to be proceeding with this project, as it not only enhances our plant but also reinforces our commitment to this community,” said Robert Hatley, Williams’ vice president, communications and public relations.

 

A venture undertaken with Shell Oil, the company is preparing to bring in additional volumes of natural gas and glean critical byproducts that could benefit local manufacturers.

 

“This company has a large presence in the national interstate and intrastate pipeline system, providing critical natural gas infrastructure. The local investment will strengthen Mobile’s oil and gas advantages,” said David Rodgers, the Mobile Area Chamber’s senior project manager.
