ONEOK Acquires 56,200 Dth/d From Williams

Williams and ONEOK reported yesterday that they have reached a two-year agreement in which Williams will provide incremental firm transportation service of 56,200 Dth/d to the Oklahoma Natural Gas (ONG) division of ONEOK.

"We have had a long-standing relationship with ONEOK through our service to its Kansas Gas Service division and we look forward to helping ONEOK serve its growing energy needs in Oklahoma," said Kim Cocklin, senior vice president of Williams Gas Pipeline-SouthCentral (Central and Texas Gas systems).

Service will begin on Nov. 1, and will require Williams to build two new meter stations along its existing pipeline system. A spokesman for ONG said the gas load from Williams was necessary to serve its steadily growing customer base of approximately 800,000 as the company unbundles its services. The transportation capacity will be used to serve customers in ONG's Oklahoma City and Enid, OK, markets.
