Williams (NYSE: WMB) announced today that its energy services business has been selected to provide production handling services for up to 500 million cubic feet per day (MMcf/d) of natural gas from deep-water leases off the Alabama coast. Financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

The leases are in the Camden Hills, Kings Peak and Aconcagua fields in the eastern Gulf of Mexico, located in 7,000 feet of water south of Alabama's Mobile Bay, near Coden.

The production is being developed and managed by the Canyon Express producers, which is a consortium of Elf Exploration, Inc., Mariner Energy, Inc., Pioneer Natural Resources Company, BP, Marathon Oil Company, Total Exploration Production USA, Inc., and Baker Hughes International Branches, Inc. Elf is the operator of the Canyon Express Pipeline subsea production system.

Alan Armstrong, vice president of gathering and processing in Williams' midstream unit, said, "This is the third major agreement we've signed this year to bring new supplies of natural gas production into our Mobile Bay operations. We're pleased with the strong response we've seen from producers to our presence in the Gulf. Our services allow producers to focus on development and production, while we ultimately help them get their gas into the marketplace."

To accommodate the projected volumes, Williams will build Canyon Station - - a production handling platform — in the East Main Pass area south of Mobile Bay. The platform will process gas from two 12-inch diameter flow lines that bring gas from the production fields.

Williams' Canyon Station platform will be connected to three pipeline outlets that deliver the residue gas onshore, giving the producer customers access to a variety of markets. Construction for the platform is slated to begin in summer 2001 and conclude in second-quarter 2002.
