Williams on Wednesday hit the green light for the Louisiana Energy Gateway (LEG), a 1.8 Bcf/d natural gas system designed to move Haynesville Shale supply to industrial markets and for export overseas.

The LEG system, set for service by late 2024, would deliver Haynesville gas to industrial corridors and to liquefied natural gas (LNG) export projects on the Gulf Coast. In addition, supply could be transported via Williams’ mainstay system, Transcontinental Gas Pipe Line, aka Transco. 

“The Louisiana Energy Gateway is a key component of our low carbon, wellhead-to-water strategy, proving up what an important role natural gas can play in reducing emissions, lowering costs and providing secure and reliable energy at home and around the world,” saidCEO Alan Armstrong.
