Tulsa-based pipeline giant Williams is expecting robust demand growth on its Atlantic-Gulf corridor natural gas pipelines over the coming years, driven largely by liquefied natural gas (LNG) exports, executives said Thursday during the company’s analyst day in New York City.

As the regulatory process has become more fraught and politicized for pipeline operators, major challenges lie ahead for the next wave of greenfield takeaway projects that will be needed to tap the full potential of the most active oil and natural gas plays in the U.S. onshore.
Williams has appointed Chad Zamarin senior vice president of corporate strategic development effective June 26 to succeed Frank Billings, who is retiring. Zamarin would oversee business development, customer relationships and be responsible for government affairs and project analysis. He formerly was president of pipeline and midstream at Cheniere Energy Inc. and also previously worked for a NiSource Inc. affiliate.
The midstream industry is quickly running out of options to meet demand from growing production in the Appalachian Basin, and volumes could be sharply curtailed as a result, said a top executive speaking at Thursday's Northeast Oil and Gas Awards Conference for Excellence in Pittsburgh.
