Kudos of the Month: Williams

HEADQUARTERS: The 52-story BOK Tower has been a catalyst in the resurgence of downtown Tulsa. It was built in 1976 and designed by  Minoru Yamasaki & Associates, designers of the World Trade Center in  New York City.

Kudos to Williams, one of the great energy companies world-wide, for keeping its home base through the years in Tulsa. Two brothers, Miller and David Williams, moved their business to Tulsa in 1919. Next year will mark the company’s 100th year
in the city that they helped become “The Oil Capital of the World.”

For the first six decades, the company name was Williams Brothers. With the growth in scale and business, the company in the 1970s changed its name to The Williams Companies, Inc. Today, the company is called Williams.

Williams, including its assets held through  Williams Partners L.P., is an energy infrastructure company focused on connecting North America’s significant hydrocarbon resource plays to growing markets for natural gas and natural gas liquids (NGLs).

Williams’ interstate gas pipeline and gathering and processing operations span the United States, including strategic assets in the deepwater Gulf of Mexico, the Rockies, the Pacific Northwest and the Eastern Seaboard.

Williams owns and operates midstream gathering and processing assets and interstate natural gas pipelines.

During a period from the mid-1980s to the beginning of this century, Williams played a foundational role in today’s digital world with the development of vital fiber-optic telecommunications networks that span the United States.

Thank you Williams for doing so much for so many through the years in Greater Tulsa!
